I bought this because they had a shade I had been looking for a while... Definitely this brand has the worst makeup products :S This one is so dry, it's like trying to paint your lips with a crayon. Hated it.
This thing, although a little too shimmery for my taste works pretty well. Smooth, no creasing at all, works as a base for other eyeshadows... But I can live without this, I don't think I would repurchase this item again.
I usually hate sweet fragrances, but I got a sample of this one while buying something else and I can't describe how in love i was two seconds after with the perfume. It's so sweet and it's tender allright. I can feel the scent with me nine hours later, and I just can't stop smelling my arm... I've already ordered this one, love it.
I'm a huge fan of Dior so I'm very disappointed on this one. I purchased the brown one and it sucks, it's not seen anywhere in my waterline and on my lids I have to apply it several times to get some colour..that hurts cause the pencil is so hard. I have a Dior green pencil which is not a kohl one and works better :S
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick

This thing is dry, that's correct, but I'm amazed of how long it lasts even with drinking, eating, and teeth brushing. I don't need to reapply it at all, and to calm the dryness, I just use lip balm, and I also apply it with my fingers, not too many product, and still works perfectly.
Powder -Chanel - poudre universelle libre(natural finish loose powder)
Flashpua 1/10/2011 9:06:00 PM
This powder makes my skin look amazing, it's so soft and I can even put cream blush over it and doesn't make a mess. I love it's so big, most loose powders are so small and this lasts a long time..and the sponge is so tender... I love this.
I'm glad this product has worked out well with many of you, in my case it does absolutely nothing. Has a nice texture, and my skin does feel fresher and cleaner...but only feels, it doesn't look that way and definetely does nothing about blemishes that started appearing again. Sometimes I put it on blemishes at night but it's the same thing because the mask does not dry. Think I'm gonna stick to the Body Shop shower gels, they're awesome.
I have to say, this is the ONLY mascara i've purchased more than once. Ever. I try others but eventually always return to this one. It gives me amazing volume and length with one sweep, and it's amazingly easy to take it off. Smells funny, yes, but I don't really mind it.
Maybe the "ball" is perfect for reaching every single lash, but honestly I found it painful to use, and didn't like the way my lashes looked after a couple of hours. I'll stick to Too Faced Lash Inyection.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Hemp Hand Protector

I love this, the smell is weird, but I apply this in the morning and the moisture lasts almost all day. I lost it and had to use some other hand lotion.. I felt I was pouring just water on my hands. This is a must have in my purse.
Conditioner -The Body Shop - Banana Nourishing Conditioner
Flashpua 8/7/2010 12:34:00 PM
Meh. I bought it because it was there. It doesn't untangle my hair that well, it smells nice at the beginning...kind of a weird texture though, with that and the smell I felt i was actually spreading bananas on my hair. Just a regular conditioner, any magic.
First of all, i don't use this, my mom does. She ran out of it several weeks ago and yesterday she used it again after buying it the day before. I could notice an astonishing difference, she wasn't even wearing makeup, blush or anything and yet her face looked so soft, even, and line where nowhere to be seen. The complete Capture Totale line is the best purchase she's ever made, she looks like my sister :p. My dad uses the men's Dior line and works also perfectly for him. A liitle too expensive, but it's worth it.
Eye Shadow -Sephora - Pearl No. 03 (lime green pearl)
Flashpua 8/7/2010 12:06:00 PM
This is probably the only mono shadow I like from Sephora, the color payoff is okay -in me-, the only problem I see is that it kind of falls apart like a Drake's Coffe Cake :D, so after a couple of months it's over. I have three other monos that have lasted way much longer than this one..nice, but I can live without it.
Sorry to say it, cause I'm a big Sephora fan and I want to like the actual Sephora brand... but this eye shadow just does nothing to me, I've applied it with primer, brush, sponge applicator, with water and the color is nowhere to be seen. The pot is cute, but I liked the green pearl and the matt black ones much better.
Primer/ Corrector -Pupa - Smoothing Foundation Primer

I just got the Clear one, which seems to be for all skin types. My skin is very oily, and a bit damaged because a special condition I have, but this turned to work out amazingly well. Leaves a healthy matte finish, extremely soft, and evens out my skin in a beautiful way. I you apply it in your hand you can see the difference inmediately. I'm glad i bought it.
