I bought this for I think $1.97 at Nordstrom Rack. I have it in Lily. It is a very nice, smooth textured liner. Even though it feels a little creamy, it really stays on, and I haven't had any bleeding even when I use it with a gloss. This color is very neutral color, I have been able to use it with a lot of my different lipsticks and glosses.

I wouldn't normally have purchased this because it looks like it has so much glitter in it, and I don't usually like a lot of glitter. However, in this product it works beautifully! I love the color and the glitter adds a beautiful shine. I don't find this too be gritty on me at all. I will definitely repurchase, and will probably try other colors.

I bought this for $1.74 at Target! I took another reviewers suggestion and replaced an old MAC blot powder with this powder. Thank you! What a great idea! Anyway, this is really a pretty good product. It is very matte and really helps to control shine, I would say it is very comparable to MAC Blot. An excellent beauty find, I will definitely repurchase!

I kept hearing about this and I just couldn't really believe it would be this good. But it is! I have this in Fair Enough. It is almost too light for me and that never happens! At first I didn't like this, but I started using it when the weather was still hot and humid, and it really didn't work for me. Now that it has cooled off a little, I started using it again and after about a week now, I really like it. It goes on very smooth with a make-up sponge. I really don't need concealer after this goes on, it has great coverage without feeling overly made up. I will definitely buy this again, although since the packaging is so good (you don't end us wasting any) it will probably be awhile before I have to! At $4.99 USD this was an amazing deal!
I wish I had read the previous review before I bought this. I also found this at Nordstrom Rack for $3.97. It looks like it would almost be too bright until you apply it, and then you can hardly see it, and I have extremely pale skin. I has a lot of shimmer, might actually work better as an eyeshadow. Too bad, I thought it might reaaly be nice...
I have loved this scent since I was 16 when it first came out in the 80's. Since then, I have had it off and on and have always found myself coming back to it. I always get compliments on it when I wear it. Its a very exotic scent, not something most women would be drawn to, but it does get a lot of attention from men because it is so feminine and doesn't smell like anything else!

This product works well for me if I am culring my hair with a curling iron. I have naturally curly hair, but if I am trying to do a softer curl this the product I use. It didn't work as well for flat ironing for me, I just don't feel like it makes the shaft of the hair smooth enough, best used with a curling iron or hot rollers and the curl really lasts.

My stylist used this while flat ironing my hair and it lasted three days! I kept putting off washing my hair because it looked so good! I have very curly hair and this really helps to get it straight and keep it that way.
I really wanted this product to work for me, but sadly it did not. I works well if you only want to thicken your lashes and not lengthen them. I really like to have the length and this didn't do it for me!
I really like this product! It hasn't quite made it into HG status yet as there are a few others I would like ot try, but it really is a great mascara. I have it in Blackest Black and it offers a really dramatic effect. It lengthens and seperates and doesn't clump and looks fabulous!
I am reviewing lid primer not the eyeshadow. I am undecided as to whether I would purchase this again. I have been using this about a month or so, and really I just don't think that this is anything special. The color was ok, but the texture is kind of oily and doesn't seem to dry completely so that I feel like it helps my eyeshadow to crease rather than hinder it. Why even bother wearing it, right? I keep hoping that in the cooler weather of fall and winter it will work better. In the mean time, I will be looking around for another product.
I love this product! It is at HG status for me! If you have curly hair this is definitely the product for you! It comes out of the can feeling cold and a little really goes a long way. It leaves your hair feeling light weight, not at all weighed down and really holds in curl. All the curly haired women in my office now swear by this product as well. My only complaint is that I wish it came in a bigger can, but I can live with that for such a great product!
I love this product! I found out about this product from a manicurist and had to buy it immediately! It really helps to keep nail color fresher longer. I usually put this on after my nails have started to dry but aren't yet set. It helps to keep the polish from chipping and keeps that "just manicured" look longer!
What a great product! I have never been big on the shimmer idea, I felt like it was something only for younger women (I'm 31). I was wrong, this is very subtle especially on my very pale skin! I'm glad I bought the biggest bottle (about $6 at Target). I will definitely buy this again!

I remember my mom using these same pencils back in the 70's, so when I read a review in a magazine (InStyle, Allure?) that they were one of the better eyebrow pencils, I was shocked and went out I bought them immmediately! I'm so glad I did! What a great bargain! I have been using them for about a year now (in Blonde) and they have been great. Between the two pencils, I think I have replaced them once in the last year (I pencil in my brows daily). Truly one of the best underrated beauty products out there!
