this for me is a great product because I've always liked the color and shape of my lips. I wore lipstick anyway for a more finished and glamorous look, but it does change the way people see your lips. This is like lipstick without the lipstick effect, and without the ickiness after you've been wearing lipstick for a while, eating, drinking, etc.I use the moisturizer and the color seperately. It is definetly long lasting, even when it fades it still leaves a "natural" redness on your lips. The only con is the colours are very limited. Maybe they will come out with more. The price is average.
1. First, apparently Sunsilk has different packaging in Europe than it does in the US. 2. It is not nearly as cheap in Euros as it is in USD, so I can not say it is "dirt cheap" though it is quite cheap. 3. My review is universal for all sunsilk products. I have used various aimed for frizzy-curly hair and none of them have lived up to the raving reviews. Instead of detangling my hair they just make it easier to rip the knots out. Will not be repurchaising.
Like many users, I keep returning to this mascara. So far it's as HG as it gets. I feel bad for those customers who live in places where Max Factor is no longer sold. Pros: adds and impressive amount of volume and length is buildable Not messy Very black Keeps eyelashes soft Cons: Short shelf life. I've had mascaras that have lasted much longer, however, I do wear A LOT I've added two pictures of before and after, picture n.10 and n.11
Liquid -The Body Shop - Moisture Foundation SPF 15
FrancyE 12/13/2011 5:02:00 PM
I bought thisin the lightest shade in 2009 so I don't know if it's the same formula. The only liquid foundation i've ever bought or used. I don't wear foundation regularily: when i moved I didn't even pack it to bring it with me. No problems at all; matches my skin colour, no oompa-loompa effect, not scented, longest shelf life ever, no streaking. it's still as moist now as it was the day I bought it. When I wear it nobody believes me that I'm wearing foundation. It really doesn't look like you have anything on. The con is the price. TBS is very expensive, then again I have to say all their products i used lasted me more than a year.
Hair -Schwarzkopf - Gliss Kur Total Repair Treatment (hairmask)

I have to take off a lippy for the product because the quantity is just not enough. My hair isn't long, it isn't even shoulder-length and i've almost finished the jar, and it hasn't been a month yet. Yes it's inexpensive, but there are a lot of competitors out there that can promise better shelf-life for a similar price. I bought all 3 products of the line. I take good care of my diet but my hair is very dry and always breaks easily no matter what I use. Pros: Inexpensive Makes my curls springy and ands body Hair FEELS soft already after the 1st use Smells good Very fast Cons: When i use shampoo + conditioner + hairmask i find SO MUCH hair in the drain, even more than when I didn't use the product. Hmm ? Hair doesn't look frizzy, but quite fluffy? If you girls understand what I mean. To eliminate that I'd have to combine this product with yet another one. Quantity of the product. I won't repurchase for con n.1. This is a type of product I would only use if i didn't have a better one on hand. It does the job, but the formula needs some fine-tuning.
I too have had the same one since 2009. However I don't wear foundation on a daily basis. I like to wear this on my eyelids. It's not quite true-match, I think it needs some work, the formula needs t be a little lighter in weight and a tad softer in colour, there is a hint of orange if you apply too much.
A fantastic competitor to Maybelline's gel eyeliner. This product is EXTREMELY similar. The brush is more fan-like and the formula is less stiff, it is creamier and a little more shiny. I gave the packaging a 5 because of the brush and the fact that the formula doesn't dry out in the jar. The only con is that it is not smudge-proof like Maybelline. It smudges with absolutely any excuse and that is not at all practical if you want to wear it for more than a few minutes. based on that I wouldn't buy it again unless I coudln't find Maybelline. I'd like to hear from other reviewers to know if this product is sold outside of Europe.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Lash Architect in Midnight Black

A very good mascara. One of the closest things I've seen to "the false lash effect." I don't know why i haven' bought it in so many years, probably due to its short shelf life. Pictures added.
My HG from age 14-18. However, I only wore crimson.All the other colours looked awful on me. Pros: It does STAY for ages. Easy application, overall no complaints about the lipstick itself. Unique shades and colours. Cons: Extremely hard to find. I always had to buy it in the series package, and I had to ask my friends to buy it from airplanes and airports. Looked great, didn't feel great. Not a great texture. Pricy. Scented.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils
FrancyE 12/10/2011 6:56:00 PM
Not impressed. The first few days it worked quite well, however in comparison to drugstore brands, this gives little length. I gave it a 2 because for the quality-quantity-price ratio it's awful. Also, short shelf life and prone to flaking. Con: good brush Very black pigment and that is literally all.
The smell is divine. however, no noticeable improvements for damaged hair like mine. I've used real pure coconut oil instead and the results were much better. I repeat, the smell of Palmers' products is seductive.
Tried Nivea hair products when I was a teenager. They were the worst because they did absolutely nothing. Nothing.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush - All colors [DISCONTINUED]
FrancyE 12/10/2011 6:29:00 PM
I must admit, one of Maybelline's few good lines. I have 3: one pink, one karamel karma and one in champagne. The champagne one is the only one i reconsider buying. I have to take off a lippy because I had to throw my Karamel Karma away because it dried up and cracked after not much use. However, i have to admit that i prefer wearing this product on my eyelids rather than my face. The only con is that it is prone to creasing. I wouldn't repurchase because I am too old to wear glitter. However, the champagne mousse mixed with a matte foundation gives a great result.
Best eyeshimmer ever and the only one I use. They are so long-lasting, i only have to apply it once a day with a wet brush. My favourite is white sea-shell. I have bought 2 boxes and they have lasted me 4+ years (and look how tiny they are!) When you divide the price per year, it's really a deal. What i don't like is that the majority of shades are limited edition Cons: they are NOT highly pigmented if you apply with a dry brush. I added pictures.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Extra Volume Collagen Mascara Blackest Black
FrancyE 12/10/2011 6:01:00 PM
I wore this as a teenager. Not a bad macara, i used it to the end, but there was something about it i didn't like. Pros: adds volume (added picture) Thick formula very black Cons: Heavily scented. 3 years later that's still the first thing that comes to my mind. Extremely expensive, even for a L'Oreal product. Lashs feel hard.
