You really get what you pay for with this one. It's just thin, streaky, never drying, very smudgy and CHEAP. It just feels, looks, and IS, cheap. Splurge for a better liquid eyeliner.

They're moderately pigmented. Would I go out of my way to use them? Hell no. But are they good in a pinch? Sure. Over a primer I'm sure they could be ok. However, it's not my kind of thing, and I only got it as a backup of neutrals for days when I can't find my other neutral shadows.

I don't think it's ultra pigmented. I just have purple and white. If I saw the black, I'd get it, but it wasn't there. For one dollar, the purple can be a nice lilac, or lavender if sheered out, or a good, strong purple if wet. The white is too ghostly however. I can't really use it for anything. Too chalky.

It was pretty slick, and slightly sticky, and the scent was pleasant. Just not something I'd buy over and over again. Average, generic lipgloss.
Styling Products -John Frieda - Frizz-Ease Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme

THIS actually works for me. I found that when using this, integrated into my damp hair, and then blown out, it makes my hair MUCH straighter than what it would originally be. Works, decently cheap, and I'd say it's worth it.

Not very moisturizing and it doesn't come in different sizes. The scent, again, I can't stand, and it's very drab, and just doesn't work. Another drugstore product with big promises, and little credibility.
Shampoo -John Frieda - Root Awakening Strength Restoring Shampoo

I hated that smell. I just can't stand menthol, or mint, or spearmint, peppermint, or any other mint-like scent. No tingle, and no real sign of improvement. Another gimmick, but the bottle is pretty!
I actually kind of like this, but it just doesn't work. It's a great concept, and at the time, I was praying that it would work, because my curls just frizzed like no tomorrow out in humidity no matter WHAT I put in it. Nope, didn't work. Perfumed my hair, got clogged, and looked nice on a shelf, though.

I'm not that big of a fan. I like things I can put into damp hair so that it's a little diluted, and doesn't just glob onto my head. It smooths, yeah, but so does every other non frizzing cream out there.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush in Peach Satin ] ] [DISCONTINUED]
DollParts7 7/13/2011 12:23:00 PM
I rather like this blush, even if I have to apply it with my fingers and it's not very sanitary. I love the color, but it's very shimmery. I like matte blushes and bronzers, and foundations. Soooo, shimmery = bad when it comes to me. Good color payoff, not too clown-like, and very, very pretty, natural end result. Works well for my fair skin.
Concealers -Maybelline - Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer
DollParts7 7/13/2011 12:22:00 PM
Rather sheer. If you're looking for natural coverage, you've found the concealer to do it. I don't like the want, and I don't like how little coverage it has. So, for me, this is a miss. But I'm a gal who prefers pot concealers over liquid. Same as I prefer mousse over liquid foundation. I just find it too runny for me.
This was good for lower lashes, because the brush was very small. However, for upper lashes, it's very lacking. I like the Great Lash BIG over the original. The formula is pretty runny, and it takes a bit to dry. So, it's not very convenient.
LOVE. Absolute HG material right here. I have pretty good lashes. Nice, thick, and relatively long. I don't like the crunchy feel, and definitely prefer natural over anything else. Holds a curl decently, doesn't clump, and it just does it's job! And WELL.

Bad smell, didn't help straighten, my hair seemed even more fried than usual. It didn't protect, left a bad smell in my room, and cost too much for the trouble.

This came in SUCH a small bottle, I didn't know if it would last even 2 days. I usually put on acne medication every night. (Yes, all over my face) Surprisingly, over a month later, it's still here, and going strong. I find that it works better than my other acne treatments (Except my Clean and Clear spot treatment). It just works! My skin gets clearer gradually, instead of very quickly. This little gem has saved me so much acne trouble, and concealer cost.
