i bought this because of the great reputation it has and i deeply regret it. although its great at getting makeup off, after a week of using it, i began to break out terribly. i asked my mother and she said the same thing happened to her when she used it, and if i had asked her she never would have recommended it. if you're willing to sacrifice clear skin for a good makeup remover, go for it i guess. otherwise steer clear.

i love this. don't like using foundations, they're too heavy and don't look natural enough. this is subtle and realistic. unfortunately, after a while of wearing it, my skin gets oily and gross. i've found that nyx matte finish setting spray solves the problem, though.

my skin appeared much smoother instantly after applying this. it's easy to apply, and a little bit goes a long way: just squeeze a little onto your fingers and spread it evenly across your skin. i used it under my foundation and it greatly improved the appearance and evenness.

these are my favorite lip balms and the only ones i use almost every day. they're incredibly hydrating and have pleasant scents. i've been using them since 2011, when they first launched in the usa, and they've improved the health and texture of my lips, and they appear to be slightly fuller as well. i own all of the limited edition and classic colors - the best colors in my opinion are pink wink and coral crush. the sheer pink shade, twinkle, is nice but essentially colorless once applied. the worst color is the peach kiss, it's this weird sparkly tan and has a strange texture. i also recently bought baby lips d. rescue in too cool (the clear one). i always get incredibly chapped and aching lips when i have a cold, and this worked wonders. not only did it rehydrate my gross dry lips, but the topical painkillers it contains eased the painful ache without numbing my lips. it also has a nice cooling effect. i haven't tried the colored dr. rescues, but i will soon. i haven't tried the electro shades either. not sure i'm interested in neon balms. the balms last rather well but you'll definitely have to reapply multiple times a day, so keep a tube on you when you go out. all in all: these balms are amazing and i endorse them 100%, except for peach kiss. peach kiss is gross.

does not plump
I splurged on this product and I really wish I didn't. It did not deliver the promised 'lip maximizing' effect, nor did it plump my lips any noticeable amount. It's a very nice lipgloss: the shine is lasting, the smell is pleasant, and the tingling feeling is nice, but it is not a plumper. If you're going to buy this, don't get it full-price, cause it's not worth it.

This is one of the most natural-looking mascaras I've ever used. The effect is much subtler than most mascaras. The promise that it'll leave your lashes soft, not stiff like most mascaras, is 100% accurate. It doesn't run or rub off, either: I wore this while learning to surf and despite the innumerable wipeouts, it was still going strong when I got out of the water. The downside to this is that it can be a chore to remove, even with specialized eye makeup remover. If you're looking for dynamic lashes, this isn't for you, but its a great tool to have in your arsenal.

the spray has a very nice, sweet scent. haven't noticed any of the 'detangling' properties it claims to have. it does make my hair very soft and silky, though. the atomizer is utter crap - it doesn't really come out as a 'spray,' more like a little jet of the stuff. but all you have to do it spray a few jets on different areas of you hair, then run a brush all the way through a couple times to properly distribute the product. a+ for scent, b for effectiveness, c- for delivery

i use this polish regularly - usually on its own. it gives my nails a gorgeous, lasting shine. i can usually go a full week before it starts to chip, and i'm notoriously rough on my hands. as for the growth, my nails may grow a little faster, but i can't really tell. they are definitely stronger, though. highly recommend.

daisy is my favorite fragrance. i have a big bottle at home, but i stow the rollerball in my purse when i'm going out. the scent is subtle, charming, and lighthearted.
