I almost swear by this product. I usually skip mascara because by the end of the day, the product usually smears and smudges all over my eye area. After a recommendation from a YouTube guru, I gave it a try and I've been hooked ever since. I actually wear mascara as part of my everyday make up routine now because it makes a huge difference. Not only does it gives your lashes volume, but it also gives your lashes length too! Two coats of this product mimics a very natural set of falsies. I wish the wand was curved like most mascaras for easier application, but the formula is amazing.
A friend recommended this product to me because it's less dense on my acne-prone skin; therefore, it should be less harsh on my irritated skin. I imagine it works well on a clear face because it lacks coverage for skin with acne. I had to go back to liquid foundation for that reason.
I love how natural this product looks on me. It lives up to the "nakedness" of the name. However, I have mild to severe acne, so I wished it had more coverage. It's relatively buildable though. In comparison to other high end make-up, the texture of this product is so much nicer and it's easier to buff out.
If you love shimmery pigmented eye shadow, then I would definitely recommend this palette. I use two palettes for my eye shadow routine with this being one of them. I wished there were a couple of matte eye shadows to balance it out. However, the colors that I typically use are gorgeous. I love the taupe-like colors.
The Acne.org line is actually very effective if you use it as directed. As for jojoba oil, it isn't absolutely necessary to see progress, but it keeps my skin feel extra moisturized when used in conjunction with the moisturizer. I highly recommend jojoba oil if you are new to using benzol peroxide.
I have been following 1D for awhile, and I must say, beyond their musical talent, they have great personalities. Watch a couple of X Factor clips or interviews, and you'll totally understand what I mean. Given my 1D concert experience, I love how they are interactive with their fans. Musically, they have improved tremendously throughout the four albums.
