PROS / The Dusted Microstretch fabric of Beyond Yoga Dusted High Waisted Midi Legging is four-way stretch and moisture wicking. The special foil treatment creates a sophisticated sparkle, which is why I bought the legging in the first place. The high waist provides tons of coverage for the midsection and the midi length is perfect for my height (5'2").
CONS / I don't particularly like its ultra high waist and the legging shows minor sweat stains. The metallic sheen is scratchy and not comfortable when doing bound asanas. While I like the fit of the waistband, the front rise seems to be too long and the leg isn't quite snug enough.
BOTTOM LINE / Beyond Yoga Dusted High Waisted Midi Legging is so popular and almost sold out everywhere. The Dusted Microstretch fabric is four-way stretch with the medium compression for muscles support. Unfortunately, it is scratchy when rubbing against the skin in bound asanas and the breathability isn't the best. Nonetheless, it's a stylish and high performance legging.
I want to share what I've been practicing lately for Supta Kurmasana. Using the wall to help get into the pose.

PROS / The seamless design of SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging provides extra stretch and comfort needed for yoga. Not only are laser cut details cute, they also keep me cool during the sweaty Ashtanga practice. Most important, the legging shapes my body curvatures well and keeps the tummy tucked in.
CONS / The panty line can be visible unless wearing a seamless underwear. I also experience sweat marks by the hip creases, which is common for solid color (non-black) leggings.
BOTTOM LINE / l love SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging for its comfort, high performance fabric and flattering fit. It works very well for yoga as well as gym workouts. The legging is by far the most budget friendly yoga pant I've ever seen. For $35 (retail price), it covers everything needed if not more.

PROS / Varley Kensington Legging is made with the ultra soft and sleek fabric, which is four-way stretch, moisture wicking and fast dry. It is cute and covers needs for most gym workouts. It comes with three stash pockets on the waistband, two small ones at front and a big one on the back.
CONS / The legging runs big. My regular size XS fits loose on me, especially behind the knees and the bottom hems. The drawstring and elastic band leave skin indentation marks. Since it is light color, it can be see-through unless wearing a nude panty.
BOTTOM LINE / Varley Kensington Legging is such an eye-catching legging made with the high performance fabric. It is soft, stretchy, sweat wicking and fast dry. While I like most features of the legging, there are two things that are less than ideal. 1) It isn't 100% opaque. I have to wear a nude panty to avoid see-through. 2) The elastic band provides lots of support, but it also pinches the waist leaving indentation marks.

PROS / Terez Black Cheetah Foil Tall Band Legging is unique and stylish. The cheetah foil printing is subtle but not boring. The fabric is sleek and soft. I don't mind the 3" elastic band as it stays put with movement and keeps everything tucked in.
CONS / The fabric is not stretchy enough for big movement, especially the foil printing. Although I can put the pant on, I can't wear it to yoga.
BOTTOM LINE / I own few pairs of Terez leggings, but Terez Black Cheetah Foil Tall Band Legging is by far the most disappointed pair. Regardless how flattering the legging is and how well it hides the muffin top, it can't be worn for workouts due to the poor elasticity.

PROS / Purusha People Your Soul Grows Legging is made with the soft, medium compression and four-way stretch fabric. It works well for yoga as well as gym workouts.
CONS / The legging is not flattering on me. It shows the panty line on the back and leaves wet spots after a sweaty workout. The "V" seam on the back of the waistband is too low. It gives me a feeling of wearing the legging half way down like a sagging pant. Also, it is sewn together with overlocking seams throughout.
BOTTOM LINE / The performance and feel of the fabric used for Purusha People Your Soul Grows Legging are great. It definitely serves the needs for various activities; however, it is not flattering. Although it creates a legging look, it shows the panty line and doesn't lift the butt. I also don't like the seam of the waistband being so low.
