So much for my purchase! Sorry to say, it's going back. I do not care for it at all. This is scratchy, and does not perform at all like Bye Bye Pores.


@Harpa - wow so sorry this didn't work.  Never heard of a powder being scratchy.  That doesn't sound fun.

@JudyL  I just saw AngelPuppy's review, and she thinks it is soft & silky. But I couldn't wait until I washed my face!

I do not have sensitive skin, just sensitive senses.

@monicakm ---they are from  benefit--REAL false lashes--the "real" is in caps on the packaging---you know how benefit does things like that Woman Wink they are not very full either but a tad too long for me to look real on me and I wear glasses so they would touch my lens--I will play with them----

Me too!  My senses are on over-drive all the time.

I smell, hear, see and feel things most people don't.

My dad used to say I could smell a dirty diaper 15 miles

away lol  My parents have called me to come over and 

investigate strange odors they can't find or identify.

On the down side, pain that many might not even give 

a second thought might make me think I need a trauma Dr Smiley Surprised

@wagirl 

 

Don't cut the ends off to make them shorter.  Won't work.  The ends are tapered and at different lengths.  You won't like the look if you

cut off the length.  Did you see them in person or order online?  I still have

a problem ordering lashes on line unless it's a re-order.  I just can't seem

to judge the look that well.  That's why I buy mine at WM.

@monicakm ---no, I haven't touched them yet-----prob will send them back and do what you suggested--get more for my buck so won't feel bad if I end up throwing them away.

Looooooove Fenty beauty!  I have most of her products (unless she's added more).  I have one of her cream blushes and would like to purchase another one.  Enjoy!
