i hate seeing the commercial for this.. "the #1 selling mascara in Amercia"... BAH! i think this is just so popular because of the nostalgic factor, and because its so cheap. ANYWAY, it clumps like crazy, weighs down lashes preventing curl, and makes raccoon eyes after about 1/2hr of wear. will NEVER, EVER, recommend or repurchase.
I received a sample of this at a Sephora store, and this formula mascara gave me a horrible eye sty (and no, it's not my eyelash curler, considering i don't use one.) The comb on this mascara wand is awkward and hard to use, and the mascara formula itself is pretty basic, nothing special. This is the first time i've ever gotten an eye sty, and its awful. I threw this product out ASAP.
I am disappointed in Ulta nail polishes. They leak from the bottle! I have a case that I keep all my polishes in, and no other brand leaks, except Ulta. The consistency of these polishes is thick and goopy, leaving an uneven finish and taking forever to dry. Will NOT repurchase.
i was really disappointed in this polish... Ulta polishes leak! so beware! most of the clear polish in this leaked out so there was more glitter than polish left... it's left the consistency all chunky and weird. if i put it over black or red polish, it completely covers it up. and it is SUCH a pain to scrub off of my nails. will not repurchase.

according to the back of this tube... "..softens...without leaving a sticky residue" WRONG. i REALLY wanted to like this stuff... but it leaves a horrible sticky, greasy residue that makes your hands feel really dirty and makes you want to wash them ASAP. will NOT repurchase.
oh...my...this stuff is HORRIBLE.
first of all, THE SMELL. this product SMELLS like Lemon Pledge wood cleaner (or Lemon Lysol, your pick.) it's VERY strong and unpleasant.
secondly, i have dirty-blond colored hair, and the white from the powder shows up and turns my hair almost GRAY! it takes a lot of time to rub it in your hair and in your scalp to make it go away.
and last, my hair still felt greasy at the roots, but extremely dry and brittle at the ends. and by this time, i'd used so much, i REAKED of that strong medicinal lemon scent.
will NOT repurchase.
The consistency of this product reminds me a lot of Benzaclin (well, OLD Benzaclin. i haven't used the product in over four years). fluffy, foamy-looking, light and creamy.
one thing i HATED about this product was, I had a few open acne/scabs and such on my face, and since this product is Hydrogen Peroxide, it foamed up the inside (killing the bacteria) and made my red scabs/bumps fill up with the reaction of the Hydrogen Peroxide.. so they all looked puss filled.
GROSS. i cant get it to go away! blech. this wasnt worth it.
I wish I browsed a little more in Sephora before buying this product.. i've been using it 1-2 times a day for 2 weeks, and have noticed NOTHING. It smells funny too.. kind of like sunscreen mixed with medicine. Blech. I have combo/oily skin, but I apply it right after having washed my face, its not really greasy.. again, it just smells really funny. I wouldn't repurchase this particular product from Murad again.. although I am willing to give the other products a try. Just skip over this product, it's pretty much useless.
i didn't notice any significant curling, or volumizing with this mascara--bummer. although it didn't clump, which is a plus, and the curved brush really helped me cover all my lashes. eh.. they shouldn't advertise the product doing all these wonderful things if they don't, it's disappointing. will not repurchase.
I made my boyfriend buy this for his frizzy hair, and wow.. it did NOTHING. There's nothing else to say. His hair is poofy/curly/frizzy on top.. didnt do a thing.
i just put it on last night... and its chipping already. yeah. it sucks.
This product was awful on my skin... i have super oily/sensitive skin; and i applied it twice... ONLY TWICE! (the directions say to use 2-3 times a week) and after the second application, my face was dried out! it BURNED around my cheek and chin area, and got seriously dry and cracked and peeling everywhere. gross. will NOT repurchase.

UUUUUGH why is this product so popular?
Maybe i'm the only one but, I CANT STAND the smell. It smells like i rubbed incense on my face. WAAAAYY TOO STRONG. smells like i rubbed a hippie on my face..
The ingredients to this product are ridiculous.
It's FILLED with scented oils.
INGREDIENTS: Water, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Coco-Glucoside, Polysorbate 20, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Rosewood Oil, Geranium Maculatum Oil, Guaiacwood Oil, Rose Oil, Palmarosa Oil, Amyris Oil, Claryn Oil, Matricaria Oil, Carrot Oil, Black Pepper Oil, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Hexylene Glycol, Coconut Alcohol, Glycerin, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Imidazolidinyl Urea, FD&C Yellow #5.
Methylparaben is a preservative and a fungicide. It's been known to have side effects such as itching, swelling, redness, or rash on skin.
Imidazolidinyl Urea is used to reduce greasy fell caused by the high oil content of other ingredients..its made from wood alcohol
Black Pepper Oil may cause irritation to sensitive skins and using too much could over-stimulate the kidneys. It should be avoided in pregnancy due to its possible skin sensitizing effect.
This stuff made me break out like CRAZY because of all the heavy scented oils and made my face REAK.
WILL NOT REPURCHASE.
i guess i'm the only one that doesn't like these...
the smell is so strong and alcohol-y, it takes my breath away, and the fumes travel up to my nose and eyes and irritates the hell out of them
update: OH MY GOD these things KILLED my skin! my skin is dry, and cracked, and peeling EVEYWHERE. uggghh.
I bought the color "Spotlight Peach 004" and its a very shimmery soft peach/pink color with lots of microfine glitter but.. the color barely shows.
you have to pile SO much of the product on your cheeks and by the time the color shows up, you have massive amounts of glitter on them.
it smells light and perfumy, but the application puff does seem that after awhile, it will get dirty and gross to use for application. and its hard to get the product onto the puff in the first place b/c the puff is a LOT bigger than the opening of the jar.. so if you're not careful, you end up spilling the blush. :(
the price is rediculous!! $39 on Sephora. thats WAY TOO MUCH for blush
.. i will not repurchase, and i will not reccomend.
