I'm a mascara addict... And I'm so glad I tried this brand. I got the gift set this past winter and to be honest, I was skeptical at first. I have stumpy - medium length but thick eyelashes that never stay curled even when I use my shu uemura eyelash curler. But OMG! This mascara keeps my lashes curled, thickens and lengthens my lashes! It doesn't smudge either! And I have slick eyelids. I'm so glad I purchased this.
I love the opi DS line so I'm never disappointed with their DS polishes. And DS opulence was fantastic. It applied well with 2 coats and had staying power like all the other DS varnishes. The colour suited my nc30 skin tone and looked very appropriate for work or play. I paid 14$ Canadian for this though which is a bit more expensive than regular opi polishes... But because the DS line stays on so well, I was more willing to hand them my $$$. The packaging is the same as the other opi polishes and I always loved their pro-wide brushes. I probably would buy this colour again if it were to go on sale though hehe
Great colour. I'm an nc30 and it complimented my skin colour quite well. It was $17 dollars Canadian so it wasn't cheap... But this colour reminded me a lot of te discontinued opi "parlez vous opi" so I had to get it... For me, this product didnt chip or peel until I actually removed it with the polish remover, hence I'm very satisfied with this varnish and would buy it again :)
I love opi DS glow. It's has this coppery gold colour that suits my light medium olive NC30 skintone so well. I only had to apply 2 coats to get the shade that was the same as the bottle. Well worth the. 14$ cnd dollars.
So i thought well after trying the original too faced shadow insurance, I might like this one better (the original too faced shadow insurance was horrid) well i was Wrong when I thought this would be better!!! What a Big mistake! my eyeliner and eyeshadows totally smudged and gave me panda eyes within 2-3 hours.. It didn't make the product stay at all... It was horrible...and it barely corrected the colour of y lids like it stated. I'm back to using my urban decay primer potion - I shouldn't have changed... Too faced shadow insurance lemon drop was a waste of money... This is going back to sephora!

Omg... I wanted to try this product because I thought I needed a change from my urban decay primer potion ... Big mistake! my eyeliner and eyeshadows totally smudged and gave me raccoon eyes within 3 hours when I used this product underneath. It didn't make the product stay at all... It was horrible... I'm back to using my urban decay primer potion - I shouldn't have changed... Too faced shadow insurance was a waste of money...
Wow!!! I love this liner! I've been using stila waterproof liquid liner for I've a year and decided to give this a try... (My stila started to smudge on me after 4 hours of wear) And I'm so glad I did! I've been reaching for this liquid liner more than my stila ! It stays on, doesn't smudge or smear when it dries - i have oily monolids. The brush nib is easy to work with and the colour is very pigmented! I usually use mine with my urban decay primer potion too
I initially like this mascara. I got great length and volume. But after a few weeks... My eyelashes started to fall out... Every time I would touch my lashes 2-3 lashes would fall... The mascara made my lashes rock hard which I think made them keep their curl , but because it made my lashes hard ... It them fragile... So I took off one lippie for the price 28$can and Another for making my lashes fragile
This opi DS colour was my very first. And I was hooked! The price is a little steep at 14.99 Canadian but compared to butter London at 17$ it wasn't so bad. The pro wide brush is amazing as always and the application of this lacquer was flawless. I kept getting compliments after compliments at work. I couldn't believe how long this nail polish lasted on me without chipping! 5-6 days! I would seriously buy a backup of this colour if I ever see it for sale again ... Opi DS colours are so hard to find...
I'm always looking for the best lip balm with a tint of colour and I think I've found my HG product. I bought caring coral and I love it. it's less grainy/ gritty in comparison to the revlon butter but this is more sheer. It's smoother and give a nice shine after application.

it oxidizes and it will make your face darker than your neck... *boo* there's not many colour choices either... So when I bought the lighter version, it was still too dark for me when it oxidized and I'm an NC30/medium plus ... My face looked orange a few hours after using this! So embarrassing!

I bought this product because I'm trying to find the best BB cream in N. America without having to order online from Korea. anyways, it oxidizes and it turned darker and more orange on my skin... hence I had to return mine for a lighter colour... so if you want to try this product go 1 shade lighter because it will change in colour.
I was told to buy this product by the sales lady because she said this product was to prevent smudging... and for me it did work =) however it didn't add volume to my lashes, but it did lengthen it. So if you want longer but thin lashes this product is worth trying.
So I tried the black and white flower patterned of the sally hansen effects real nail polish strips and I LOVE them! I've gotten so many compliments! I work in health care and I wash my hands ALL the time... and regular nail polish only lasts me 2-4 days until I get peeling or chipping on at least 3 of my nails... but Not with these! *tips: - wash your hands and nail beds well with soap - liquid dish washing soap works well because it takes any oil / grease off your hands... - dry your hands well - don't use base coat... - gently push your cuticles back with the orange stick - remove the clear plastic film off the strip and then the white backing... then use as directed on the box - I always press pretty firmly on my nail before I file the excess strip* I love this product because I can get 2 uses per box... since I keep my nails on the shorter side... (note: to get 2 uses per strip... after I stick and file the excess strip from my middle fingernail on my left hand, I would then tear the perforated edge off , and then I would stick that side on my middle fingernail on my right hand - 2 fingernails per strip =) hehe)
