So it's not a good option if you want a "no-makeup", "your skin only better" look. It's quite obvious I have something on after a couple of hours of wearing this. It creases and makes my lids oily. Not a good primer, but the color looked nice on my light skin with warm undertones.

My lashes didn't grow but...
Okay. I have significantly long and curly lashes in the first place, and insanely volumizing lashes often just look ridiculous on me. Yet I tried this mascara because of a review I read on a makeup blog, where the writer named this as her favorite mascara and said it didn't clump. By God she was right! This brush is amazing! It separates every single lash, it's just perfect. I put two coats of this on and my mom asked me if I was wearing fake lashes, but I'm still quite pleased about this mascara for when I want bolder lashes. I only wish this was waterproof, then it would be perfect.

You won't look like Taylor Swift
But this mascara is AWESOME if you want natural-looking eyelashes! I wore this mascara all day yesterday, from morning til night, including a one-hour aerobics session with heavy sweating. This mascara passed the test! It didn't clump on me and it didn't give me racoon eyes. I'm taking a star off because it promises "incredible volume" and it so doesn't deliver on that promise, but it's a very nice mascara for when you want more natural lashes. I'll be wearing this again and again for my "no makeup" makeup looks! EDITED to add: Most of the time, since I want a natural look when I wear this mascara, I only put on one coat. Well, the other day I decided to experiment and put on three coats of mascara so I could see how much volume I could get from this. The volume was okay, but goodness! It took so LONG to dry! I was scared of looking up or down and messing up my eye makeup for what seemed to be at least 5 minutes, and in the end the results weren't too dramatic and my lashes clumped. So be careful with this! With just one quick coat it's a pretty decent mascara but if you want more volume, you might want to use something else.

Tried a sample
And it left my skin beautiful, bright and soft with just one use! The smell of this is wonderful and it exfoliates so nicely. It's expensive (which is why I took off a star) but just the smell of this scrub makes you feel like you are treating yourself to something wonderful. I don't know why it exfoliates so well, maybe it's the actual product or maybe the smell causes you to keep scrubbing because you never want to take this off your face. Still, it leaves great results. I loved my skin afterwards!

Good for other things
I don't think this is a good option for my water line. Like others have said, the color is too sheer and sparkly. It just doesn't look natural enough on the waterline to give you that wide eyed look. It is, however, a pretty decent cheek and browbone highlighter. Just apply it and blend and it gives you that nice highlighted, dewy look Benefit charges well over 10 times the price for.

Good highlighter for cheeks
I got this in white, not a great option for my water line. The color is too sheer and sparkly. I'm using it as a cheek and browbone highlighter right now and it's pretty decent, gives me a nice glow. It's good for when you're in a pinch and can't go to a department store to get Benefit's Moon Beam.

I still have some imperfections
Such as blackheads and acne scars, but I've noticed that with regular use of this product they've become less noticeable over time. I use this mask every other day for about 20 minutes. It feels nice and it leaves my face somewhat clearer and with a pretty glow. This is also great for fighting redness; I seem to be allergic to my current facial cleanser but this takes away any redness I get from it.

Evened out my skin tone somewhat
But it still didn't do anything to cover my acne scars and redness. It also took a long time to dry, so by the time it did some of it had already worn off from me accidentally rubbing my eyes. I'm dissappointed.

I love this!
I love this blush! Like Maybelline's Mousse Foundation, it is so nice to have a product that doesn't require any tools for application. I feel like I'm fingerpainting my face with this, but the results are not those of a 5 year-old's drawing! Every time I use this blush, I'm left with a very natural flush. I don't think anybody would notice that I'm using blush, because I look just the same as always - but better. This blush just brightens up my face, like I'm extra appy or just excersiced, and it doesn't leave me looking like a clown with too much color on! I definitely recommend this blush. I bought a peach shade and I love it! Too bad there aren't many other colors!

Tried this as a BzzAgent
This product smells AMAZING. I got the lipgloss in fire as a BzzAgent, and it smells like melon or something similar. Very nice, although I do know this isn't the only lipgloss out there that comes with a smell. This gloss isn't advertised as longlasting, but I took a shower and even (carefully) washed my face while wearing it and enough of it stayed on for my lips to remain shiny. I'm not usually a fan of lipgloss, but I've been wearing this product a lot since I got it. The color is very sheer, but it leaves a lovely shine. You can use this over regular lipstick if you want more color, or use it alone if you want only a hint of color. I love this product! So glad I got it.
