I picked this up in a hurry in New York in August and I love this product. It covers well (remember to blend!), and the container lasts for a long time (I'm only at about half-way done. I have a lot of imperfections and I've been using it almost everyday.) but it's a little pricey for me. It was $26.50 in the states, and is a whole $10 more here in Canada (the exchange rate wouldn't effect the price THAT much). I will probably buy more on eBay. I wish Vincent Longo will come out with new colours soon.
It seems like Maybelline just packaged some clear cooking oil and passed it off as an eye makeup "remover". This doesn't remove anything at all - even non-waterproof mascara. This is utter garbage.

For my shoulder-length hair, volume was only temporary. Like, 10-15 minutes kind of temporary (I used the upside down, spray at roots method). The nozzle also stopped working randomly.

I bought a bottle of this two years ago, and haven't used it for maybe a year. I didn't like this very much because it didn't give me any volume, but made my hair stick together instead (applied on dry hair).

Love the smell of this product, but this doesn't do much for me in the texture department (applied wet or dry). I have shoulder-length hair, and this cream seems to weigh it down a bit. Maybe this will work for girls with short bobs.
Lotions/ Creams -Jergens - Skin Firming Moisturizer
Merrrp 11/30/2006 2:24:00 PM
Nice moisturizer. I love the scent.
I can't say I saw any changes in cellulite, but this makes for a nice lotion overall. Yes, it's a little bit sticky but that wears off in about five minutes. I wish this came in a pump bottle, though. The lotion is thick, and I'm impatient so I hate waiting for the last little bit to squeeze out. Keeping the bottle upside down works, though.
This product was an okay conditioner but I didn't notice a change in volume. I'm not too fond of the smell, either. Ladies, go with Aussie's MOIST conditoner. :D
This is a GREAT conditioner. It smells good, it leaves my hair silky soft, and the bottle lasts for a long time. Mine lasted me about six months before I had to buy a new bottle (that's with usng it every 2-3 days).
This is one of my favourite mascaras. It doesn't clump because of the rubber bristles on the brush, and the effect this mascara gives is awesome. The only things I don't like about this is that it hardly gives any volume, the tube dries up in approximatly one month, and it doesn't come in a waterproof formula. This is overall a good product, though, and I would buy this again.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Crystalic Calcium Fortified Nail Color
Merrrp 6/4/2006 4:10:00 PM
I got this in Ruby Red for my Prom. A friend of mine just so happened to have worn what seemed to be the EXACT same colour, only that hers was from OPI, and cost twice as much as this Wet'n'Wild polish. I love this because it goes on smoothly, and hardly chips with two coats of colour, and no top coat. As I'm sitting here in my bedroom, the colour is a nice, deep red. When I go into different lighting, however, the colour changes to a bright, poppy red. I absolutely love how it changes shades. I will definitely buy this shade again, along with others.

I. LOVE. THIS. STUFF. My skin feels sooo soft and fresh after using it. It's definitely my favourite facial cleanser.
Update: Eh, after using this product for a little while (about 4 months), it stopped being so great. I don't get that freshness anymore, even though I've cut down the useage to about once every few weeks.
Concealers -Rimmel - Hydrasense Flawless Concealer
Merrrp 9/20/2005 6:35:00 PM
I bought this concealer because I wanted to try something new. I'm glad I did because this thing is great! It covers and blends well, and it's relatively cheap. The only bad thing about this product is that it kinda feels oily/greasy when I first put it on and it smells kinda funky. Is it just me?
Mascara -Maybelline - XXL volume+length microfiber mascara
Merrrp 9/20/2005 6:27:00 PM
HOLY CLUMPVILLE, BATMAN! This mascara is horrible. The consistency is too wet for my taste, and the brushes are hard to handle. The packaging doesn't even need to be that bulky. I find that I have to pull my eyelid to one side to apply mascara because the brush handle is so huge. Sure, the length this mascara gives is GOOD, but it lacks volume. This thing is only good for girls who already have a lush set of lashes.
This is one of my favourite mascaras. Although it doesn't give much volume after the first coat, it does lengthen to my satisfaction. After the second coat, my lashes were long, and full. Great stuff.
Edit: Oh, and don't use the side-to-side method as suggested on the back of the packaging. It clumped my lashes together and it's better if you just sweep straight up.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Waterproof
Merrrp 7/2/2005 4:48:00 PM
This mascara is not so great. I found that it smudged, and flaked (this stuff BURNS when it gets in the your eyes). Plus, it really didn't do anything for my lashes. It darkened them, yes, but not anything else.
