The packaging is cute. I hated the original Great Lash and have heard that this was nothing like the original. Well, that's true, but I'm still not the piggest fan. It gives a nice natural look, but I expected dramatic results that make my eyes pop. No such luck. I like that it doesn't clump and gives pretty volume, but I'm on the hunt for something that will give my already long, thick lashes that extra wow factor.
The packaging is ugly, but it was on sale on CVS, and being a mascara junkie, I decided to give it a whirl. Let me just say, this mascara clumps so badly on my already long, thick lashes. It doesn't "define" anything, makes me look like I have unilashes. Ugh. So disappointing.
Mascara -Estee Lauder - Sumptuous BoldVolume Lifting Mascara

I don't love or hate this mascara. I'm extremely picky about mascaras. This one adds a decent amount of volume and length, and layers well. Unfortunately, it's nothing to write home about for the price. I will continue to use it until I find my hg.
After trying the regular Double Wear and loving it, I decided to try this one just for the hell of it. I am absolutely thrilled! Medium/Deep matches my skin tone very well and it covers everything while still maintainig a natural look. That is, after blending. It does have a tendancy to transfer, so I'm on the hunt for a good setting powder. It lasts foreverrrrr and stays flawless all day. It hasn't caused a single breakout, and the oil control is gorgeous, even in this gross Florida humidity. For any girl looking to cover up dark marks or acne scars without wearing a ton of foundation should try this. It literally takes less than a pea size amount to cover my whole face. Just make sure you moisturize well first, or it can accentuate any dry spots you may have. I love and hate the packagin. I love it because it's a tube and isn't messy but hate that I can't see when I'm running low, but the original Double Wear bottle doesn't really show how much product is left either. Oh well, it's a sacrifice I am willing to make.
Gross. Burnt my eyes, took forever to actually remove just a little bit of eyeliner and mascara. Costs way too much, smells so chemical-y. I have nothing good to say about this stuff.

Ilove this mascara. It works great with my already long and thick lashes. It darkens them beautifully, holds a curl, doesn't flake or smudge, ugh it's just incredible. I like that it's not a big rubbery brush, those tend to make my lashes look clumpy. This mascara is build able for day or night looks. I hate the tube though, it looks cheap nd boring, especially for such a lovely product.

I will be honest, I had been at a party drinking, went to Wal Martfor more party supplies at about midnight, and the packaging caught my eye. I loooove the colors, and I had never heard of this mascara, and I wasn't really thinking straight.... Lol.... I'm still not sure how I feel about this mascara. I already have thick lashes, so I feel like volume mascaras cause me to look too clumpy and made up for during the day. This is a great nighttime mascara though. It makes lashes look so full, and nthey don't feel hard. There is no flaking, and it is easy to remove. I like the glossy finish as well. I'm going to try out some more methods for applying it so that I can also wear it during the day, I've only liked one other maybelline mascara, but this one has potential. :)
Scrubs -Clean & Clear - Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub - Oil-Free

I have struggled with acne since age 16. I am now 20. The acne I battle with isn't just silly little blackheads or whiteheads, I get one big, cystic pimple at a time, and it here is nothing to be done but ride it out. This is also the reason I have some scars. I used to use harsh acne products on my skin. Since switching to this face wash, and not using salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or any other harsh hemicals on my face, I have not had a single breakout. This scrub is gentle enough for every day, smells great, removes makeup, and isn't over drying. It is so so soooaffordable, for about $6, and comes with lots of product, n comparison to Neutrogena face washes and other brands that give you almost no product for your money. I've been using it for about 3 months, and I still have nothing bad to say about it except the packaging, product can leak out a bit. But, hey, it's $6, even beings broke college student, that's no skin off my back. I highly recommend!
Omgggg, hg! I have oily skin with red acne scars, this stuff makes my skin look absolutely flawless without being cakey at all. I don't even need a concealer, except for my under eye circles if I'm really tired that day. It lasts al day, and I don't even need a setting powder to avoid transfer. It is only $35 and lasts me about 3 months a bottle. I wish the bottle had a pump, and it was possible to see when you are running out. Overal, though, I have finally found my hg foundation. Oh, and it hasn't triggered any breakouts, even if i fall asleep in it orwear it tothe gym. Yay!
At first, I hated this mascara, it went on so clumpy. After letting it sit in my makeup drawer for months, I decided to give it a shot once more. OMG, after it's been dried out, it works soooo well. It gives beautiful volume, but it looks natural. Personally, I like my mascaras with a dryer formula, because it doesn't clump like wetter ones have a tendency to do. This doesn't clump or flake AT ALL!!! The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because I had to wait for it to dry. I guess I'll just buy these in bulk, so when I need one, it'll already have gotten drier, lol.

I'm reviewing on the older, silver version of this that was discontinued. I found it for around $3 at Big Lots, so didn't expect much from it, but WOW! It holds an amazing curl, gives great volume, and can be layered for a more dramatic look without clumping. I'm going to stock up on this, since I'm sure the new formula will somehow be different. 3
I loved the packaging for this, and my best friend gave me rave reviews on this mascara, so I decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, it looks very clumpy and unnatural when using more than one coat, but one coat doesn't look like anything more than my natural. I want volume, not length because my lashes are already long. This did not deliver. I hateeeee the clumpy look more than anything.
I love the way this makes my eyes pop. It can look a little grayish and grainy if used alone, but I usually use my regular Lash Blast Fusion, and then swipe a coat of this over to make my green/gold eyes look absolutely dreamy. It holds a great curl, gives great volume, and doesn't flake or smudge.

HG FOUNDATION at lastttttttt! Oh my gosh, it is always so difficult for me to find a natural looking foundation, that offers amazing coverage, that makes my olive skintone. I've found it!!! It has such a beautiful finish, almost dewy, but not emphasizing the oiliness of my skin, just giving me a my-skin-but-better look. It doesn't dry as quickly as most foundations this thick, which is wonderful, because it gives you time to blend blend blend. It doesn't ever get dry and cakey looking, and like it promises, looks freshly applied all day long! It covers up acne scarring beautifully, I don't even need concealer. I use Almay's Clear Complexion Pressed Powder over top, and I look naturally flawless and radiant.

I LOVE this eyeliner. I bought it not thinking it would be that great, but I was very pleasantly surprised!!!! It brings out the green in my green/gold eyes. It looks brown in most lighting, but in sunlight and flash photography, I could definitely see a rich mahogany color that is absolutely gorgeous! It really makes my eyes pop, effortlessly without looking overdone. It's creamy, and glides right on my lash and water lines. Will definitely repurchase. =]
