I think I have found my HG mascara. My thick, stubby lashes look so defined, super long and thick without any clumps. It doesn't flake and 2 ppl. asked what the heck happened to my lashes..."are those real?" I will deduct one lippie at some point if this mascara dries out faster than I think it should. It cost $27 CDN, but well worth it!
I bought this after trying dozens and dozens of styling products. I have thick, 3A, curly hair. My hair needs extra support in the winter, as it's very cold and very dry where I live. This gel is a med/firm hold, but does not leave hair sticky, crispy or wet looking. It defines my curls really nicely and leaves my hair soft and shiny. It is alcohol free, which I think is much better for my hair than using products that contain alcohol. Overall, a great product!
What a great product for my thick, coarse, curly hair. I have tried a ton of products. Now that I highlight my hair, it's nice to have a product that is "color safe". This is a thick cream that leaves my hair with soft, defined curls. The product is quite concentrated, so you only need to use a small amount. Overall, it's expensive, but totally worth it. EDIT: not enough hold....my hair went fuzzy during the day. I changed my rating form a 4 to a 2.
A nice, average mascara that can be applied moderately for an clean, rich, everyday or more generously for a dramatic look. Makes my lashes look SUPER dark and glossy. The "black" is a nice, rich black that doesn't turn dull or gray like some other mascaras. I cannot at all feel it on my lashes when on, even if I apply numerous coats. No flakes, no spidery look. It washes off easily and doesn't burn my eyes like many mascaras do. They often have this product on a 2-for-1 special and sometimes as a GWP with their eye makeup removers.
WOW...I have never had luck with Great Lash (straight brush). The curved brush makes a huge difference. I use the tip of it and "paint" my lashes. The result = very long, glossy looking lashes. No other mascara that I have tried (and I have tried MANY) has such a rich, glossy, black that lasts all day. This mascara does not clump or run on me. For under 5 bucks...I certainly can't go wrong! EDIT: I have since tried the straight wand again and as long as I don't rush applying, I get great results! No clumps, no fuss, just long, glossy lashes!
This did nothing for my lahes, except make them look limp and dull. This is not meant for anyone who actually has lashes. It may work better for people with minimal, fair, skimpy lashes. I will not be repurchasing.
Great product for an UNBELIEVEABLE price. This is better than many other high end liners I have tried. Now I just have to figure out if this was a Ltd. Edition...would love to buy more of these!!
WOW...well, this certianly wans't Pure Volume, but can you say PURE, AWESOME, LENGTH? This totally made my lashes dark, glossy and unbelievably long. I tried a coat of L'oreal Panoramic Curl over top and got an amazing, dramatic, evening look. This is a great product that probably got poor reviews because it is marketed as a volumizing product. If you take one look at the brush, it's obviously a seperating,, lengthening product...and a great one for that! This will be great on it's own for a daytime look and great layered with a thickening mascara for a more dramatic look.
This product did not make my lashes look any thicker or longer. I applied 3 coats and it just made them look a tad darker. Overpriced and ineffective. I will not repurchase.
Great lengthening mascara. It glides on...no flakes, no mess, no clumps. Many other lengthening mascaras I've tried tend to leave my lashes clumpy with thicker, messy tips. This really seperated my thick, stubby lashes...the result...clean, dark, long lashes. This is worth the $18 CDN. UPDATE: Compared to some other mascaras I have tried since using this, the LW one takes many coats and much work to get a dramatic result.
Overall, a good mascara. I can't ever find a mascara that does it all, but this one certainly gives my lashes added volume, a bit more length and dark, rich, glossy lashes. It doesn't flake on me (which I know others have complained about). It is a nice, glossy formula that glides on. One negative thing is that it makes my lases look a bit "spikey". Overall, a decent product, but not HG material.
This is a very underrated mascara. It is amazing!! It makes my lashes super dark, super long and super thick. No clumps, no smudges and lasts ALL DAY. The results are just as beautiful when you apply as it is when you wash it off 10 plus hrs. later. The formulas is rich and glossy. I have tried tons and tons of mascaras and this really is one of, if not THE best I have tried! EDIT: The tube I have now is dried out...it hasn't even lasted 2 months. Good product, but not great value for the price.
GREAT product to add some bounce and mositure to my "winter", lifeless curls. I applied this to my damp hair (after applying some leave-in conditioner). I elt my hair air dry and it dried beautifully - no crunch, no frizz, just nice, bouncy curls. I bought this in a tri-pack that came with the Ringlets shampoo and conditioner. If I see it sold on it's own, I will be buying the mist again, for sure!
Cleansers -Avene - Cold Cream Ultra-Rich Soap-Free Cleansing Bar

A great alternative to traditonal cleansers. I use this on my face, but it can be used for the face and body. It removes all of my makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and not tight, or stripped. This is so sensitive, it is even recommended for babies. It cost $8.50 for a 100 gr./3 oz. bar. I will definitely be buying this again.

This eye cream is great for my sensitive skin. So many I have tried seem to burn my eyes and this one moisturizes really well and does not irritate my skin at all. Avon has great sales, so you can often find this for a reasonable price.
