To start this review off, I received this product in a VoxBox earlier this year, but it was around the time of my yearly vacation to the beach which meant that once I returned home the shade I got no longer matched me. So I began by trying to mix this shade with a darker foundation, and therefore never got to really experience this formula on its own.
About a month ago, I was looking for a new foundation to try (because I was a loyal Fenty Beauty foundation fan) and a Sephora employee recommended this product to me. Once I explained that I had already tried it but was mixing it with a darker shade to match my skin, she told me to give it another try and matched me to my correct shade. I need a foundation that will last all day, not move, not get shiny, etc. So I put this foundation through the ultimate test.
Days after purchasing this foundation, I attended Warped Tour. Being out in the hot sun all day, surrounded by mass amounts of people, this foundation did not move. At all. I was so impressed when I returned home and looked in the mirror. The foundation barely had any shine, and even after wearing sun glasses for most of the day, the foundation was still in place leaving no trace of wearing glasses.
I’ve recommended this foundation to everyone since this experience. Even for the price, you don’t have to use a lot of product and don’t have to reapply throughout the day.
I have been using this product for a few weeks now, and honestly, my face has never felt so good after using a cleanser. It doesn’t dry out my skin, for starters, and I’ve noticed blemishes on my face have faded or disappeared. I’ve tried products from Olay to GlamGlow to Erno Lazlo and have not had this much improvements on my skin where I feel I don’t need to use as much makeup to cover up blemishes.
I don’t know if I’ll ever quit shampoo, but this product definitely did something for me. For me, this product did well if I let me hair air dry completely, if I tried to use a hairdryer on it, it left my hair flat and lifeless. The smell of the shampoo is nice, and left my hair feeling soft (not tight and squeaky clean like shampoo), but I feel that it left my hair looking kind of greasy and unclean. I don’t know if I’d buy it again, but the concept behind this product is great.

My group and I flew American Airlines on our way home from Madrid, little did we know that our next flight was cancelled due to weather, but American Airlines had an employee waiting for us when we got off the plane with new tickets directing us to another airport to get us home. That was nice and convenient, but that’s where my review stops being so nice. We flew out of Baltimore and had to stop and switch planes in JFK, New York. When given our new tickets, we were missing one, and we approached several American Airline employees who were rude and cold with us. Every time they just dismissed us and said, “we can’t help you here.” And then walked away leaving us to try to find someone who could help us out. Luckily, after approaching five or six different employees we finally approached someone who would listen to us, even though she was a little hesitant on trying to help us at first. For that experience, I will not be flying American Airlines again.
I only wear matte lipstick so when I received this product I was eager to try it to see if it was long lasting. I work long hours so having a lipstick that stays out and doesn't bleed or wear off easily is essential. I was amazed how this lipstick stays on and doesn't come off when eating or drinking, but it takes some effort to take off with makeup remover. It does however not dry down matte, but stays glossy and sticky.
I've been using this eyeliner for almost a year now, and it hasn't failed me yet! Sometimes I have to work for 12+ hours and with other liquid eyeliners I have problems with it smudging or wearing off, but this can withstand it all. Highly recommend this to everyone who asks what eyeliner I use. And it's easy to get a nice, sharp wing with the felt tip. The price may run $20 USD, but I use it daily and it'll last me about three months before I need to replace it.
