This product is amazing! It removes my eye makeup so well, there is literally not a trace of eyeliner or mascara on my eye when I wake up in the morning after using this. It also seems to condition my eyelashes, they feel so soft and supple after using this. It's a little oily but in a nice way, it doesn't leave my skin or vision blurry after using it, the skin around my eyes just feels nice and refreshed and hydrated! I love Charlotte's line and packaging too. The bottle looks so pretty on my counter, I feel like I'm an old school Hollywood Starlet when I use these products, which is always fun! I would absolutely repurchase.
I love this eyeliner! The texture is so nice, it is unlike any eye liner that I have ever tried. It truly does have a powder feel and glides onto the eye so nicely - no tugging or pulling. As a professional makeup artist, this is a staple in my kit. I use it a lot for lining the lower lashline, where I often want a softer, more smoky effect. I love this shade too - it's kind of an ashy, smoky brown which gives great definition without being black. I will repurchase this - Charlotte's products are the best - very well made and have a definite luxury feel to them!
As a pro mua, this is an absolute staple in my kit. I love knowing that if this was the only thing I had, I could do a complete look with it! I have even mixed a client's foundation color with this palette! Make Up Forever is so high quality and I love that they cater to a professional makeup artist but consumers can use their products easily as well.
Honestly this is just a high end Benzoyl Peroxide treatment. It dried my skin out tremendously and I didn't care for the texture. I do like Benzoyl Peroxide in my ingredients to fight acne but I prefer using it in a lower percentage (2.5% which can be found in a few other brands) to minimize irritation and dryness. I bought this from Nordstrom and sadly had to send it back.
I really, REALLY wanted to like these. I love the feminine packaging, convenience, price and the fact that they don't have bad chemicals in them. However, I gave them a try and I was really disappointed. I ordered the regular and light options, as those absorbencies were all I have needed in the past with other brands. The first thing I noticed was that the applicator was tricky to figure out. I popped a few of the tampons out of the applicator by mistake because the slightest amount of too much pressure when you expand the applicator to use it does that (making them unusable because you can't get them back into the applicator).
Maybe I got a bad batch or something because I tried a whole box and none of them seemed to get a little bigger (horizontally or vertically) and absorb like other tampons do..it stayed the same size and slid out more and as I wore them and got really uncomfortable. I have also never had a leak before using other tampons, as I don't have a heavy flow, but I used a Lola tampon, wore white shorts without a second thought, and had the worst leak ever. It was really embarrassing! Overall, I wouldn't recommend these, although I see that other people have had good luck with them - not sure if I am doing something wrong (maybe I needed a higher absorbency?) or maybe I got a bad batch?
I'm a total mascara junkie. I picked this up thinking it would probably be just another "ok" mascara to add to my pile, but OMG it is so amazing. I'll start off by saying my preference for mascara is NOT a natural look..I like them to look as long, thick and black as possible, I love the look of faux lashes. This gives me all of that. The pigment on this is probably the most rich black I have ever seen in a mascara. It instantly defines my eyes because it's so dark. The plush brush really packs on the product at the root of the lashes, which I love because it is there that you need the most definition and then it's not clumpy at the roots. It's easy to build layers of this mascara too. I don't notice any clumping, flaking or smudging. And it's so easy to remove too! I would rate this an A+, my favorite mascara in my collection right now.
I have this and it really does work. I was a little unsure how to work it at first but it helps if you sit in front of a mirror and can actually watch it working (pulling out hairs! 😀) You just want to go over small areas at different angles in short strokes repeatedly to catch all the hairs (as hairs can sometimes grow in at different angles and you are supposed to go against the hair growth). You want to constantly be holding the handles and turning them inwards as you roll. Once you practice a few times it's so easy. It does hurt but I got used to it pretty quickly. I would also recommend using this on Clean and dry skin, and using something afterward to prevent ingrown hairs or breakouts (like Paula's Choice BHA). Overall I love this and the results it gives me. I love how smooth my face feels afterward. I like how it grabs hairs that you weren't even aware that were there! Now that I have the hang of it it will be easy to use while watching tv or to travel with.
I have used this for years! Such a perfect gold/pink gloss. It looks good on it's own or over nude lipsticks. The packaging is beautiful so I love to keep it in my handbag! The color and shd ine last for so long on my lips. I would highly recommend this!
As a professional MUA I love BECCA, and stock a lot of it in my kit. I love all of the highlighting products, they are a very sophisticated highlight - no chunky glitter or shimmer - just a beautiful angelic glow for all skintones. Love the global range of complexion choices too. The formulas and packaging are beautiful I will continue to use this product line and can't wait to try more!
I really like this foundation. To give a background, my skin is normal to dry, yet acne prone. I really like the fact that this does not cause me to breakout. I find the packaging very convenient. I like to dispense a little and use the attached sponge to kind of stripe the product on my clean face where I need the most coverage. I then use a buffer brush to blend it all in. I really like that I could find a color that matches my pale yellow to neutral skin perfectly, without any weird orange undertone like many foundations have. The formula is fairly thin and gives a good medium coverage. It's more of a natural skin-like finish, not matte and not overly dewy. I do think it's best suited for dry to combination skin, it may be too hydrating for very oily skin. I like that it dries down and doesn't feel too tacky. I do usually set this with a little powder. My only issue is the staying power, by the end of an 8 hour day or so I feel like it is pretty much worn off. However, I love everything else about this and it's good on my skin for about 4-5 hours which is fine with me for all of the other benefits this has. Will most likely repurchase unless I find something better.
