My hairstylist used this on my hair, and I knew I had to have some. My hair has never felt so soft. It is pricey, but it doesn't weigh down your hair, and it works amazingly well.

Good so far
I was given this ( in pink) for Christmas because I've been DYING for one. I have acne, large pores, blackheads, and oily skin which can get dried out since I spend the majority of the year in school in windy west Texas. I've been using this for a week now and will continue to update my review once a week to give a good picture of the changes BEFORE: I would get lots of blackheads on my nose. I would have an oily T- zone that I'd have to take care of throughout the day. Some dryness was going on, and my acne was seriously acting up. For years, I've probably had around 10 pimples on my face at any given time. Not to mention I have a lot of post acne scars that made my face look worse than it should have been. AFTER WEEK ONE: It appears like some of the scarring has faded (yay!). Still a lot there, but I'll take any improvement. I've had some breakouts still, but that's to be expected. However, I got a few pimples on my cheeks, a place I hardly ever break out. I'm guessing this is due to the "purging" process that I hear about. Supposedly, the Mia is digging up a lot of the impurities in my skin, and they cause pimples, but should go away after all the junk is cleared out of my pores. Here's an improvement though: my skin is SO soft. It's amazing! I've also noticed that he brush does a great job of removing my makeup (which is insanely hard to get off before). My skin is still oily, but it MIGHT be a little less than before. Blackheads are still there, and my pores are still big but might have shrunk a little. I can't wait to see what my skin will look like next week! I've been using the Deep Cleansing brush head since the sensitive one felt a little too soft for my liking. I use philosophy's Purity Made Simple cleanser, Clinique toner and moisturizer. AFTER WEEK TWO: My blackeads on my nose are disappearing some. The congested pores on the sides of my nose are gone too. My pore size hasn't really decreased any. I'm still breaking out on my cheeks, which didn't happen before I started using the Mia, but it is happening less. The little bumps on my forehead are slowly going away, and my skin is still smooth. My mom commented on how my skin is looking a lot better.

I have acne that never seems to go away. I know this is a "after the fact" product (it won't prevent pimples from forming), but I gave it a shot. It definitely delivers on the drying part. Be careful about that and make sure to moisturize. It does dry out the pimples sometimes, but others, it seems to make whiteheads appear when I take it off in the morning. It does work some. In fact I have it on now. It just isn't the miracle worker that people expect it to be. I think for acne prone people like me, it doesn't work as well as it does for other people. Overall, I would recommend this product. But I would also warn people that it isn't a miracle worker. *UPDATE*: I've started using my new Clarisonic Mia before using this stuff. Now it definitely works much better than before. I was shocked to see the size of some of my pimples go down overnight.

I use this as a lip stain, and it gives my lips a natural but pretty color. However, it can be really drying, so watch out for that. It's pretty, but I don't think I would buy it again.

I have both this palette and the original Naked, and I love both. The palettes are similar to each other, but they are definitely different too! This one can be blended with the original Naked for some new looks. There are three matte colors in here that work as great highlighters, and the rest are shimmery, but not all out glittery. There is a repeat in here from the original Naked (Half Baked), but it's my favorite UD shadow anyway. The colors are highly pigmented, blend well, and are so much prettier in person than they are in a picture. I like the brush Naked2 comes with. It is dual ended for great blending. It comes with a sample lip gloss instead of the primer potion, but that's ok too since i have a lot of those already. I would recommend this palette to anyone since the shades would compliment any skin tone. It's pricey, but worth it!

I haven't found a primer that works as well as this one. I have really oily skin in the T- zone area. I applied this in the morning, and at the end of the day, my skin wasn't oily. I really did not expect this primer to work as well as it did. It felt smooth when I put it on, and it dried instantly. My makeup looked great all day! I highly recommend this primer.

I use this concealer every day. I has good coverage and decent staying power. However, I have to make sure I really blend it in to make sure there aren't any concealer spots on my face. It is a tiny pot of concealer, but it really LASTS. I'm still on my first one, and I probably bought it a year or so ago. Pricier than the drugstore, but superior. I would recommend it.

One of my all-time favorites
I've had this perfume for years, and I've never gotten sick of it. It has a clean, citrusy scent that is perfect for everyday wear. It's a feminine scent for women who want to steer clear of sweet scents that may be too overpowering to wear to the office. Compared to some other perfumes out there, the price isn't that bad. You can actually find this perfume in a discount store like Ross or Marshall's pretty frequently. This perfume is wonderful!

I have wavy/frizzy hair that's thick. I usually spend anywhere from 10-20 minutes straightening my hair. I bought my CHI in hopes of cutting down on styling time. Unfortunately, I still spend the same amount of time straightening my hair as I did when I used other, less expensive straighteners. HOWEVER, I like the plates on this straightener much better than on the ones I used before. My hair is left super soft and shiny. I don't like that my hair is left without any volume when I finish straightening it though, but I guess this is bound to happen. I love how this straightener lets you know when it's heated up and ready to use. I do love my CHI and it's lasted me a bit over a year now. I'd recommend it people looking for a great straightener.
