I spray a little in the palm of my hand and run it through my hair. It holds my styling even in the worst humidity. I'm not so impressed with it as a *volumizing* product. But hairspray type mousse it works great.

I think they have discontinued this product so maybe this is irrelevant. I have a love/hate relationship with this concealer. When it doesn't ball up on me and glides it is perfect for hiding the blue vein I have right under both of my eyes. But it is not a light coverage concealer. It needs a powder or foundation over it at a minimum. I hate the applicator, I squeeze it out onto my hand and then use a brush to do the rest of the job. I have this in both the Fair and Yellow shades. I am keeping them to see if I can get them to work right because I do really like it when it works.
(this is meant for your body) I am always on the hunt for a Hair Remover hence I tried this one. I use them on my face. I find the body depilatories work faster and don't dry out my skin as much as the facial ones. I left this one on for 8 minutes. It does get rid of coarse hair. Downside you have to leave it on a long time and it burns. But it is one of the best. When I really need a remover I use this one and follow it up quickly with a cold wash cloth and aloe.
For a color adding product this was a great conditioner too. It added brown to my hair so much so that when I shampooed again I could see the Earth Tones conditioner coming out. I leave it on 10 minutes. If you have gray roots it might tone them down a tiny bit. Mostly it will place a brunette sheen on your hair. I think the Artec product works a little bit better. I notice it more anyway.

I'm using it in the Chestnut Expresso color. It left my hair a little dry. But I think my hair is traumatized from home coloring anyway. I didn't notice that this product did anything special. The price was ok but you don't get much product. I like the fragrance.

I'm surpised there aren't more reviews of this product. My spray has lasted forever. I don't think it volumizes as well as my mousse does. However, it goes on easily and you get a ton of product. I would say this is a medium hold hair spray. A good value.
I have changed my opinion on this product. When applying I took the time to press it into my skin and then it didn't sit on it staying white. After a week I am very pleased with this cream. My make up goes on smoothly over it. It has just the right amount of moisture for my over 40 skin without being too heavy. I look forward to using the serum and eye cream that came with the kit. The odor wasn't the cream, it was the plastic wrap around the cream bottle. It was inexpensive as part of a kit. Purchased separately it is a little pricey.
I received this as part of a QVC kit. The colors are every day in plum mist. Highlighter color and lid color in sort of a nuetral to darker palette. Fantastic staying power. Doesn't fly all over when you applying it. A top notch product. I will be buying more when this runs out.
Review is for color "Pearly Plum" but I didn't see a good reason to start another thread for a separate color. This was part of a kit. It goes on perfectly every time. I can't believe how little I use and how much color it adds. You actually have to be a little careful. Her Blush is a terrific value and a very every day make up. Another one of my favorite things about this blush is it doesn't fly all over the place when you run your brush across it.
A great brush. I've never had a problem with the bristles falling out. I like it very much. Pricing is nice too. I store my concealer brush in the case with the foundation brush.
Great price, hard to find, works very well. Typical Target product you can see the sample but the brush is out of stock, lol. Anyway, when you finally get it I think you will like this one and the price too. It spreads evenly and quickly, no fussing. I wish it were retractable.
I thought the Ulta lipstick was just ok. However, it is half the price of the high end lipsticks in the store. You can try on the colors unlike CG, Revlon, Maybelline (which are in the same price range). I have the Pouty Pout and like it. Staying power is so-so at best. But the price is right. It is not moisturizing. It gets 4 lips for color choice, if it were more expensive it would only be 3.

This is for Colgate Total Advanced Whitening Toothpaste and Gel, I've used both. I never noticed any whitening at all. Then again I am a diet cola drinker, that might be why. But I did notice the twice as expensive Crest Vivid did make my teeth look whiter. I'd buy if it's on sale as the taste was fine. I would not buy it for whitening.
I tried both the Silk Body System 5270 (blue) and the Soft Perfection (pink) 3170. I was using it on my face and decided this was not a good idea. The area was quite bumpy for a long time. Hey, I know these are for other body parts but I've tried everything.I did think they both did what they were supposed to do. As other reviewers have suggested use the 20% off coupon and you can't go wrong. Pain: 5270 was less painful -follow the directions it really works Hair Removal: 5270 was better Cost: 3170 was less expensive
This product is great for exfoliating my legs. The scrub portion melts away and leaves them soooooo soft. The scent is not my favorite. But, I do think this scrub is top notch.
