So disappointing the stencils I found way too fiddly to use & the colours are at least 2 shades darker once applied , the "Medium " I bought is at least 3 shades darker than the appearance in the compact which I may add is way too large. I have dark eyes but even my own brows are not as 'blackish' . I managed to rub off the wax along with powder with a tissue which IMO does not say much for staying power. I really wish Model-Co would supply disposable brushes so the colours can be tried on the brows to avoid wasting $48.00. Updated at last .....ModelCo exchanged the kit for blonde which is plenty dark enough I find not using the powder makes for enough coverage as well as longer lasting with no smudging , I still cannot use the stencils though. I would love just a ModelCo tinted eyebrow wax.Added 2 lippies.
I am amazed at how in 2 coats this mascara gave me clump free extra long "Doll" lashes, my only gripe is that it is quite dry whether it because I bought it from SN & maybe it was a little old I have no idea but overall I would have to say this one is a keeper . I would only ever buy it online as it is very expensive.
Mascara -Estee Lauder - MagnaScopic Maximum Volume Mascara
Miffny 8/19/2008 10:45:00 AM
This has to be one of the worst mascaras I have bought in a long time, no volume added as well as drying so very hard , when I removed the mascara I lost many lashes.A big let down and not cheap either.I must give it credit for staying power and no flaking.
I adore MAC's Russian Red, a lovely blue/red & even though it is classed as Matte it has never dried my lips out & a big plus is it is long wearing .
When Redken deleted my old HG of leave-in's the All Soft- Soft Ends & replaced with the horrible Velvet Whip I was about to give up all hope until on a whim after a dodgy hair cut I asked a fellow blonde what on earth she used to get her obviously foiled blonde so shiny & sleek she told me 'Redken's All Soft Gold Glimmer' so off I went & bought some. I applied 2 pumps to my parched bleached hair & it made my hair feel quite silky, it is not greasy (but could be if too much was used I think) but almost like gel oil without the greasiness or weight. I must say it delivers exactly what it boasts -"Perfecting Shine Treatment Provides intense shine with lasting softness and frizz control", I also noticed the ingredients of Avocado Oil,Olive Oil &Silk Amino Acid plus Gold Camelina even though near identical to the Velvet Whip is not even a comparison. I am so glad to have stumbled across this as I thought I would never find another decent product again & I can say in all honesty All Soft Gold Shimmer is brilliant it truly delivers 100%.Soft Ends will remain my favorite always hopefully it will come back via public demand! I would have preferred this in a bottle so I could get every last bit out as it's in a pump bottle which I know I will have to break to get the last little bit out ! This is now a replacement for the discontinued "All Soft Addictive Hair Transformer" which was a delightful product . Update -All Soft Gold Glimmer is not doing much these days seems not to moisturise much at all, it was great for a while though.It does not deliver much at all these days. :-(
I was so upset when I heard All Soft Moist Ends was being replaced but I was hopeful the Velvet Whip would be as good of not better......what a HUGE let down Velvet Whip is nowhere near as hydrating on my dry coloured hair & as I do not use heated appliances the thermal part does me no good at all. All Soft Moist Ends leave-in condition was fantastic I am not impressed with this at all.I have to add my Hairdresser used it on my hair & it is as dry as if no conditioner was even used. I am searching for the old one in desperation !!
Nice mascara for the price a little clumpy no worse than Dior Show easily removed with water a nice mascara if you don't mind spidery lashes.
I had no trouble with clumping using a quick application but not nearly enough lengthening happened as so heavily advertised, the only thing I really liked was my eyelashes staying supple no smudging and not turning rock hard. Not what I expected but no better or worse than Chanel's Inimitable. I will try something else next time as it was a major let down in the lengthening department.This was a last chance for L'Oreal and again they blew it sadly the advertising is once again all hype.Disappointed for the last time I have finally learned no more L'Oreal mascara !!
Smooth & blendable no dragging & it stays put never a smudge in sight I am a Huge fan of MAC's powerpoint pencils & Buried Treasure is one of the most beautiful yet unusual colours when I put it on it appears sooty black with glittery flecks. MAC powerpoints are my HG's and Buried Treasure is a number one favorite . I find it terribly expensive on my budget but worth it in the long run.
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous in Softshell pink
Miffny 4/25/2007 9:41:00 AM
I love the texture of Super Lustrous & the colour Softshell pink is just sweet as candy .I apply it so sparingly with a clean fingertip smudged to give a hint of pink to lips a very innocent looking lip as long as you don't apply it straight from the tube -than it can be quite scary in regards to being too frosty. I get mine for $4.00 from eBay so no complaints here . 5 lipsticks for the divine texture & staying power :)
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Lipstick- Rose Tea
Miffny 4/20/2007 10:18:00 AM
I was given this lipstick from as an unwanted GWP. There is nothing I don't love about this lipstick from it's slick casing to the perfect colour/texture that lasts & lasts never drying my lips out it goes with absolutely every thing my hair/skin tones/eyes plus whatever look I want I can use this lipstick if I go smoky eyes & pale lips or just natural it works both ways. Needless to say I just purchased my first batch of two :)
Terribly terribly disappointing not only did it flake into my eyes the strong 'Rose' fragrance irritated my eyes so much I could not continue to use it. I have not had such runny eyes from mascara fumes in many years. I am rating it low for packaging as it is no better in comparison to budget Revlon mascara. Updated : After a while the mascara I was using annoyed me being two parts so I went out on a whim & re-purchased DiorShow, I am happy to report back that it barely had any smell and did not flake at all nor irritate my eyes so I now concerned I gave it a bad wrap maybe due to the one I purchased being 'off' so I am now in my 3rd week of long thick lashes.Still terribly expensive but the results are worth it -so far.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Volume Shocking Mascara [DISCONTINUED]
Miffny 1/31/2007 11:48:00 PM
L'Oreal VS was on special at my local pharmacy so I tried again this time I used it carefully and sparingly...Voila!! the longest separated lashes ever, I only use non waterproof as I have sensitive eyes & it is hard enough to remove with oils as it is. I have two gripes which is the normal RRP , as StrawberryNet has Dior & Lancome cheaper than L'Oreal & the VS tends to make lashes quite hard.
A nice product but as it's only a temp to seal up split ends any serum will do that for half the price- even better still get the split ends cut off & than upkeep it with TLC & serum.
I thought I would give this product a 2nd chance after years of not using it. Yet again it made my tinted & few foiled blonde hair feel like dried up straw so once more this fails the test of promises of softer,stronger hair. In my opinion hot oil has & never will be of any benefit to any coloured hair types.
