This product was terrible. I was originally looking for a lengthening mascara that would leave my lashes looking soft and feminine. This mascara didnt do the trick at all. It was impossible to build length, it gave no curl and no fullness. I had to apply 3 coats just for it to show up, and i have naturally long lashes to begin with. It smudged and flaked like crazy, making me look like a zombie. Youre better off purchasing a crappy drugstore mascara then you are this one. It has to be one of the worst mascaras ive ever used.
Moisturizers -Garnier - Fresh 24H Deep Moisturizer

Ive been through several different moisturizers, not quite finding one that was fit for my dry skin. I decided to try this moisturizer, and found that it was perfect. Application was wonderful, it didnt soak in too fast leaving me with enough time to apply it to my face so I didnt have to take out a massive amount of moisturizer just to cover my face (like most others ive tried) . It left my skin feeling extremely hydrated and fresh, and its actually helped my skin look overall more radiant. I recommend this product for anyone with dry skin, as its just the right amount of lasting moisture. Packaging was great to, I leave my skin care products in my bathroom so being in a glass jar was quite convenient.
Styling Products -Clairol - Herbal essence totally twisted mousse

I have naturally frizzy/wavy hair. For years i straightened my hair because it was impossible for my to de-frizz and somehow manage my all over the place waves. I bought this product not expecting it to work, as ive tried so many other products of the same type. Let me say, this mousse works amazing. It somehow de-frizzed my hair, left it smooth and bouncy, but the greatest thing about it is that it gave me lovely waves. When i get out of the shower i brush my hair, apply the mousse, and then let it dry. The only downside is that it does take a little while to dry, and in the process your hair crunches up a bit, but once completely dry, it is amazingly soft and bouncy. Ive been through 3 bottles of this stuff and I must say, it is wonderful to not have to straighten my hair everyday!
I came across this product while looking for a foundation that wouldn't soak into my large pores and make my face look like the moon. I have dry skin, and while I loved the maybelline dream mousse, it tended to leave dry patches, so i thought i'd try the liquid formula. Well, it did its job... it blended wonderfully, gave good coverage, minimized my monster pores, and left me with a beautiful dewy finish. I found it to be better than most expensive high end brand foundations ive purchased. Although i wouldn't recommend it for anyone with oily skin because of the dewy finish. BUT, if you have dry skin or pores like the craters on the moon, this product does wonders!
Concealers -Lancome - Photogenic Skin-Illuminating Concealer

I originally bought this product because of its illuminating effects and how easy it was to blend. When i first applied it to my undereye circles it seemed to do the trick, until an hour later. The product had dried up, and appeared cakey. I had to constantly smooth it out with my fingers all day long just to keep it from creasing into my under eye lines, thus the concealer dissipating completely by the second or third hour. Even when worn with moisturizer underneath and tinted moisturizer on top, it dried out. Overall, this product kinda sucks! Not worth the money.
