Sanyav's review was spot on... some are too pink, and some are too orange.. nothing for us yellow toned gals.. i am a Warm Ivory.. its really hard to find any inexpensive foundations in my shade. Maybelline really needs to adjust their formulas...
the only words that come to mind, when describing this product, is over rated and over hyped.. looks great after applying, but drastically cuts the wear of polish down.. chips horribly in a day. i am a stay at home mom.. all i do is clean and change diapers. it seriously can't last through that?? can't imagine this working on someone who has a vigorous job... not worth the $$ in my opinion..
purchased this in Strawberry. the color on the outside is fabulous.. its a hot pinkish color, with some sparkle.. looks unbelievably pigmented.. i was so happy with the purchase, until i put this on.. yet another disappointing product from Revlon.. hardly any pigmentation, and seems too slippery in texture.. i am a MAC lipglass girl, and with the recent economy, have not been purchasing any MAC products.. i was hoping this was going to be a cheap alternative. sadly, it doesn't even come close. waste of money, yet again.. going back for sure..
i just purchased this from ULTA, and its definately going back tomorrow... after multiple times swiping it on, there is little to no color.. its watery in texture, and very slippery.. i love sticky lipglosses.. its the only way i can keep color on my lips.. this is a waste of money, and i wish Rimmel had come out with something better than this joke of a lip product..
i bought this on sale, from Kmart.. Maybelline is 40% off, and i had a dollar coupon.. so i paid less than 4 bucks for this.. its not bad.. not HG, but it does the trick.. legthens more than thickens.. thats my only complaint.. Walmart carries this too, if anyone is interested..
Mascara -Hard Candy - 1,000 Lashes Fiberized Mascara
Chiquilla01 6/25/2010 3:25:00 PM
i bought both the white primer and black mascara versions of this.. i am happy with the white primer, but not the black mascara.. the black mascara flaked like crazy, immediately after application.. fibers were everywhere.. it is too dry.. had it been a tad more on the wet side, there would be some serious potential for this.. the only way i would repurchase, if they fix the formula.. i did get better results from the white primer, so i recommend that one.. just steer clear of the colored fiber mascaras..
not a bad mascara.. i have to give it another week or so, to get used to the wand, but i think i would repurchase.. more of a lengthening mascara for me.. if you have thick lashes, try this.. got it at CVS...
i like this mascara.. i first curl and wear a cheapie primer underneath then apply two coats of this mascara. my eyelashes are long and pretty after the second coat.. slight flakes, but all mascaras do this on me..
love love love this lipstick.. almost reminds me of MAC Cremesheens.. i have three of these so far.. the only one i am disappointed in is the red shade. far too gaudy bright for my NC 20 skintone.. maybe it will look better with a tan?? anyways, i highly recommend these.. if they feel a tad dry to you, apply a balm first, then the lipstick.. i like to use these along with L'oreal Jelly Balms. it makes the color last a bit longer..
i am a total mascara fiend.. i immediately have to buy all new mascaras that come out.. i bought this and the volume Pro mascaras from Target.. this one in particular didn't do too much.. i was hoping for deep black lashes, and it seemed to be less than bold.. not bad, but not great.. just meh.. and the worst thing about this product is that i couldn't get this stuff off.. i had to try three different soaps, and oils to make this crap budge.. this was just the regular, i would hate to see what the waterproof is like..
crap... utter crap... flaked and chunked up like crazy.. paid about 9 bucks and change for this.. definately going back to my local CVS.. i would recommend everyone to checkout the rest of the new collection.. they have new eyeshadow duos and palettes out, along with a gel eyeliner.. those look promising.. i'm going back for those for sure.. CVS, and Walgreens have released new items from Rimmel, Neutregena, Maybelline, Revlon and L'oreal..
its not the worst mascara i have used, but not the best either. i purchased this at WalMart.. i am very disappointed that i spent almost $8 dollars for this.. it takes a lot of time, and most if the application process is hit or miss. you never get the same good result the next day.. maybe i will upgrade my rating when i have gotten used to the applicator.. i have used the one by Givenchy before, so i know how this is supposed to be applied.. the only reason i returned that one, is because of the pricetag.. $28 dollars is IMO wayyyyyy too much to pay for something you have to throw out in 3 months... i won't repurchase this, until i figure out if i like it or not...
i am in love with this.. i hate most mascaras.. i have tried literally everything on the market today.. from high end to drugstore.. i picked this up because it came in a two pack.. came with an eyeliner.. well, i was pretty much disappointed in the liner, but the mascara made me happy : ) i have stick straight medium lashes.. and for anyone who has them, you completely understand my pain.. i have to curl my lashes every single time and then put on mascara.. usually the curl goes away within an hour.. well, this held up nicely.. the primer is my favorite part.. i love it.. i hope that Revlon markets this specific primer seperately, instead of waisting their time on that horrible Double Twist mascara.. i can use the primer with any mascara.. i have a few in my makeup graveyard, that i would reach for on occasion.. those with this primer gives great results.. i will definately buy over and over again..
not bad, but not the greatest.. i was really hoping it would replace my Super Thick Lash... but sadly it won't.. i don't know whether or not if i will return it.. it really does lengthen the outer corner of your lashes, but not anywhere else.. at least on me. and it uncurled my eyelashes.. that was with only one coat.. i will try and give it a few more days.. maybe if i mix this with another mascara, it will give better results. if you have straight lashes, like i do, it probably won't do much.. save your money, and get Super Thick Lash.. that holds up pretty well, and never uncurls my lashes... so far, this is a no buy again...
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)

i really really wanted to love this product. my face is ridiculously oily during the hot humid summer months.. i saw this at Walmart and i had a coupon for it, so i figured what the heck... i wore it for a few days, during the 118 degree heat we were having a few weeks back... it stayed on perfectly!! no intense shine i have always had!! i was so excited... of course, something had to go wrong.. day four, my skin couldn't take it anymore.. it burned and tingled my face forever.. even after i washed it off.. it felt like i was wearing DuWop Lip Venom on my skin.. i am guessing it has that dreaded ingredient Bismuth in it.. its the only ingredient i am allergic to, and i can't wear BE because of it.. so sad. curse my sensitive skin!!!
