Yuck! This stuff feels greasy and waxy as you slick it on your skin. Just thinking about this product gives me the feeling of pimples forming beneath the surface of my skin. Will definitely not repurchase! I'm so disappointed. I've tried just about every concealer, from Maybelline to MUFE and there is NOTHING that seems to work:(
Fragrances -Dove - go fresh revive pomegranate & lemon verbena

Perfect spring into summer scent. I love this fragrance, it's super cheap and refreshing, what more could a girl ask for. I don't expect it to last all day but it's still so lovely I don't mind having to spray it again within and hour and a half.
Its pretty drying but it gets the job done. I use this remover for my toes and Image Essentialsremover for fingers because I love the finger insert.
I wash my hands a lot so I'm not sure about the effectiveness of this pen, but I love how shiny and healthy my cuticles and nail bed look after application. I also use it to push back my cuticle during at-home manicure. I'll repurchase.

Very sticky. Love the sweet smell and very subtle color. I hate the texture so i won't be repurchasing.
A little sticky. Sheer with subtle hint of color. Nothing to write home about.
Hair Styling Tools -Revlon - RV544 Tourmaline Ionic Hairdryer

Creates a lot of body and volume to my hair. I would purchase a different brand of blow dryer after this one dies on me, but for now it gets the job done. Love it.
You don't get good enough curl that holds with this curler. I've tried it with mascara before application and with mascara after applicaton with the same disappointing result. The plastic "curler" part is also annoyingly hard to clean off, too. It's only a buck, so you get what you pay for. I'm going to find a more effective curler, because this isn't it.

I love this. It really heals and refreshes my skin during PMS flare ups. I use the Biore during PMS but on less intense days I use St. Ives apricot scrub.
Lipstick -Clinique - Almost Lipstick - Black Honey
NatanYah 3/14/2011 4:04:00 PM
After reading the many rave reviews and trusting Clinique's promise that this is a color that will flatter all shades of women I made my purchase. Its a beautiful "Almost Lipstick" that heightens my natural shade of lips about 2 shades deeper. I love the waxy/slippery texture. Highly recommend, especially for women who have difficulty finding the right shade.
I just bought the newer bottle "Kiwi and Citrus" Ultra moisturizing shampoo. This stuff is great. I was doing baking soda rinses or using Suave clarifying shampoo to cleanse my hair. I noticed for quite some time that even after deep conditioning and oil treating with Coconut oil, my hair was still lacking in moisture. A few of the hairstylists I've tried in my area would tell me I should switch to a moisturizing shampoo, but of course i thought I knew better than them and continued with my cleansing ritual. My sister called me a few weeks ago and told me how harsh the baking soda rinses and clarifiers can be on the hair and that I should switch to the moisturizing shampoos. I can really tell the difference in my hair (moist and healthy looking)after only one use. This stuff is definitely HG. I love it and will continue to purchase.
Did not deliver the moisture I anticipated. Average shampoo at best.
I LOVE this fragrance. For some reason it reminds me so much of Nag Champa incense, a scent that I adore. I hate the bottle it comes in but it's a very affordable, lovely mist nonetheless. I think this bottle should last me a while, but I would buy it again, just to have it in my perfume stash when I'm feeling nostalgic.
Concealers -Make Up For Ever - Full Cover Concealer

I live in a city that doesn't carry the Make Up FOr Ever brand, so I had my twin sister go to the one in her city to get a color match before I purchased mine online. Sephora's delivery only took a business day before I received my product which is a plus. I hurriedly applied a small dot to a dark mark and it was the wrong friggin' shade! I think I'm just going to buy some vanishing cream instead of repurchase a different shade. My skin is pretty great, but I have a few dark spots from the random pimple I always recieve right before that time. (TMI?) If you can find your color match this may very well work for you.
I'm not sure if I'd buy this again. Don't get me wrong, this is the perfect date/nighttime scent to me. I love it. It's just not something I'd feel comfortable wearing everyday, but still a lovely fragrance.
