I have this in everlasting rum. I like it but it doesn't stay on all that long. Maybe a few hours. The shade is very natural and it is perfect for work. Just enough color. I would buy again, but I wait for it to be on sale, buy one get one free at my local drugstores, so then it is about $5 which is what it should cost.
Mascara -Rimmel - Volume Flash The Max in Extreme Black 003

I saw the reviews and bought this. I didn't care for it myself. It went on unevenly and clumpy. It wasn't the worse mascara, but surely not worthy of the great reviews I read on this wesite. It is good enough not to toss. I will use for now but I have to wipe off the clumps before it dries.I won't be buying it again.

This is great but they need to repackage this. It is a great shade for my skin and goes on well. The packaging sucks. The plastic piece on top pops out from the lid each time you use it, but you know what??? so does MAC's and at least this is cheap. Still using this and it's about a year later. It is truly a great deal, and a great product. I surely hope they don't discontinue this!

I have been using this for about 3 months. I happen to like it very much. My hair happens to get very knotty and this product makes it alot easier to brush through. I think my hair is in better condition than it was 3 months ago. It is not cheap and I need to use a good deal of it because i have alot of hair and also very long hair. I saw the other reviews and notice some people didn't care for it. I think they failed to wash it out properly. It isn't difficult to rinse out honestly. I have Japanese straightened hair that is also dyed. I use it 2x a week. I think this is good for my hair.
This is a great makeup brush at such a cheap price. Definately worth it. I use it for my blush and mineral makeup. I buy it on line and all the Studio brushes I have are so inexpensive and they work so well.
Eye Makeup Remover -Avon - Moisture effective Eye makeup remover
RobinFace 1/23/2010 10:23:00 PM
I have been using this stuff for many years. I buy like 20 of them when they go on sale for $1. This stuff takes off all my eye makeup easily, doesn't irritate my eyes or the skin around it. It can cost $4 each, but buy it on sale. Definately the best makeup remover I have used so far and I'm not a kid.
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Espresso Ink Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

This was by far the longest lasting eyeliner I have ever used. It will not come off until you take it off. I was used to pencils and I need to learn to use the brush a bit better. It is about $21 but the pot will last a long time. I am going to try it in other colors. I changed this review because it dried out and I am NOT happy about this. I read that others had the same problem and added visine, but that's ridiculous that you have to fix it.
Hair Color -Garnier - Nutrisse Permanent Creme Hair Color

This is the worst hairdye I ever used. It stripped the hair cuticle and made my thick hair thin, horribly dry and damaged. It also came out the most atrotious color red; nothing close to strawberry blonde. It was flaming stop sign red.
This color is really pretty. It went on smoothly and stayed on for a long time.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Covet

I really liked this color and it goes on smoothly. It stayed on for a long time and didn't smudge.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Lucky
RobinFace 9/15/2007 9:27:00 AM
This stayed on all day and because it is a light copper, it doesn't look like you're wearing too much liner. Perfect for work and day wear. It went on smoothly and didn't need any smudging because it is light. I bought it in a try pack of 5 colors for $29 at Ulta and the pencil sizes were suppose to be shortened versions of the full size but seem the same size as any other liner. It was a good enough deal.
This product cannot be worn by white women. Even the slightest bit on your skin is so dark, you would look like a clown. Maybe I'm not being fair in saying this because it may work very well on African-American skin, but I'm sure they would have to be careful with applying it also. There ought to be something on the product sleeve indicating that it is designed for very dark skin.
Eyeliner -BeneFit Cosmetics - Eye Kohl in Sable [DISCONTINUED]
RobinFace 7/13/2007 8:23:00 PM
I made the mistake of buying this productive in Sable and Steel color. It was expensive. It went on well but was off my eyes inside of 2 hours. What a waste of money. I could have bought a much less expensive brand that would have lasted far longer. I don't want to have to reapply every 2 hours when I pay that kind of money.
Eye Makeup Remover -Ahava - Advanced eye make up remover
RobinFace 7/13/2007 8:15:00 PM
I bought this because it was on sale for 75% off and originally sold for $18 for 6.2 fluid oz. I would never spend that kind of money on a remover. Good thing I got it for $4.50 because it burned my eyes. At first I used tissues and it wasn't removing the makeup completely and then I used the cotton balls it tells you to use on the bottle and it did take of the makeup but burned so badly, I had to splash my eyes with cold water. Then my eyes were bloodshot and i had to use Visine. I have, in rare cases used unscented hand lotions (even Palmers) and it didn't burn. I would never buy this again.
I was surpised this didn't rate well. I thought it was really good for a drugstore liner. It stayed on my eyes very well. I liked the gray. It gave me a nice smoky look and it stayed on all day at work which is more than I can say for most liners. I had to order on line because I believe this has been discontinued. I purchased 10 of them really cheaply because they aren't stocking them in the stores anymore
