Same here. I was hopeful that it would THE eyelash curler. Didn't change a single thing. 5$ waste here.

This paste is thick, thick, thick. It gives a very piecey look and provides lots of hold. It has now replaced Redken Rough Paste and KMS Molding Paste for me.

I love this moisturiser. It sinks in fast and hydrates well for the warmer season. I've used it for a while and i never broke out from it.
I like this a lot. Granted, it's not THE mascara, but it's worth a try. It goes on a lot like Maybelline Full n Soft, only it makes my lashes thicker. The formula takes a little more time to dry too, but that makes it buildable. I have it in back and navy blue. It does not smear at all. A good deal when on sale.
I bought this in sandy beige, which is a medium yellow-based shade. The foundation is a thin liquid that goes on for a medium coverage, sut still fairly natural. It's got smallish light-reflecting particles of shimmer. It's not as shiny as Clinique Gentle Light or Lancôme Photogenic, but I like this much better. It did not streak or turn orange after a day of wear. It also does not have any scent that I can detect. The only thing I dislike about it so far is the bottle, which is a plain old square glass bottle with a small neck. So much potential for accidents... I will edit this review when I find out whether it makes me break out or not.
I love this too. I bought Warm Beige and it's a golden color more than it is orange. The smell is okay and I agree that there is slight shimmer, but really, it doesnt show up on my skin. It's sheer, sheer, sheer.
Mascara -Rimmel - Endless Length and Lift-Waterproof

the formula for this gives me natural lashes. however, it's NOT waterproof. it smudges even more than the regular formula. boo.
I have bought this in Beige 5. Used dry, it's very sheer. Used wet, it's a medium coverage foundation. It goes on evenly, gives me a matte but natural complexion. EDIT: At first the foundation was a great tan color. Now, whenever I try to use it wet, it turns way orangey. I don't know what happened.

I have dark brown asian hair, and have had good results with this. I agree with previous posters who specified that you need to test yuor hair first and find out it reacts to bleach and dyes. My hair turns very pale and not orange at all when bleached, so I went ahead. I bought the Mocha Chip 4.0 kit, which is a dark neutral brown base. It came out very nice, and my highlights are amber and caramel. I am considering adding some more paler strands, too. I had good success with the highlighting brush, although I still used my fingers to distribute teh bleach more evenly and also foiled them. 35+15 minutes later, I haad beautiful sunkissed hair for 20$.
I also got these from the Summer 2003 line. I got one in Beach Glow and another Berry Glow, I think. They are fairly slippery bt not overly greasy. They act like an excellent colored lip balm. WOuld buy again, expecially on sale.
Eye Shadow -Quo - Eyestripe eyeshadow in Paradise Cool
powderflow 7/23/2003 5:42:00 PM
This is a Spring 2003 LE. Similar to the Hibiscus trio, it comprises a powder blue, a light aqua green and a darker denim blue. The quality of the powder is excellent and the colors stay true and are very pigmented.
These are 2g screw top creme eyeshadows. They were part of the Summer 2003 line; I think that the formula will become a permanent addition to the Quo line. The shadows are pearly and creamy. I used my fingers to apply qith and without base. Dries to a powder finish. They all stayed put for hours, with minimal creasing. Would buy again anytime, especially on sale (4$ instead of 12$)
***THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE FIRST LOVE PERFUME, WHICH WAS PINK IN COLOR, NOT THE 2008 VERSION*** That's probably because I am partial to Roxy, but this is one of my favorite scents. It's very girly, flowery and beachy.
This is the best ever, I have used the creme and he lotion. Both are very light, yet they arevery hydrating and sink right in. They smell really great and never caused breakouts.
This is a shimmery off-white color. It looks very plain in the pot, but I've found that it's great to fix shadows that are too matte or dark.
