I am not usually a fan of gimmicky products..I stick with what I am familiar with. But I was browsing around at Walgreens and this was on sale for 7.99 and I loved the color on the front..being that I couldn't find one quite like it on the usual pour on form I bought it..it says LESS MESS but i must be sloppy because its just as messy as other dyes. The mousse covers a lot of hair which was surprising and one did all of my long hair. The color pay off is very good, now I am just waiting to see what the fade time is on it...that will determine a repurchase but so far so good!

Consistency is watery so skin soaks it up right away...its decent but not amazing. But I have to agree the smell is RANK..but it fades for the most part..just dont put it on the areas near your nose LOL! There's better products to spend my money on
I generally like Rimmel products, especially the mascaras...but this one just sucks. Its so wet that its hard to build on...all you build is clumps rather than length or volume. I have average lashes and can usually get good results with just about anything but I was just not happy with this at all.
Throughout the big fuss of this lipstick, I found myself picking it and putting it back for a long time. One day I just bought it and tried it on at home n thought..."oh...." wasn't a fan. I kept trying to work with it and realized its a very good everyday base...I mix it with pinkier hues or gloss. I think this can definitely get pasty looking and unappealing but a light hand works well with this....works for those who don't usually "do" nudey type colors...
Overall-its okay. It gives decent length and is dark which is nice and I actually like the brush quite a bit. I didn't notice any growth and I prefer mascaras that offer a little bit more volume. This is buildable to about 2 coats...this is good for an everyday work mascara where its easy n quick to apply but you don't get too dramatic for the day. I prob wouldn't buy it again any time soon as I have other drugstore mascaras I prefer-rimmel extra super lash is one of my faves.
I'm on the fence with this mascara...while I like the way it makes my lashes look, its kind of a pain in the butt to use. The brush is so big you really have to take your time when applying...this does give really dramatic lashes though...so I probably will buy it again at some point...its just not what I thought it would be for some reason.

I like this for applying under my daily makeup...leaves my usually dry eye area hydrated enough for my concealer not to cake up. Good staple

I am trying a sampl size of this..has been about 2-3 weeks and while I wouldn't say its amazing, I kind of think it works. I have easily irritated skin that gets red n itchy....Its not rosacea but I thought this would help none the less and it does. I notice less redness overall.

SO, I wanted to try this out since I'd heard some raves ont he boards about the products. I got this because I have fine lines at the outer corners of my eyes and darke circles. Using this for about 2-3 weeks now every day has shown some changes. It took about that long to actually see them. my eyes area is more hydrated and the lines are softer. My dark circles haven't disappeared but the skin does look better.
I disagree with reviewer that said those who like certain fragrances like Michael Kors and J'adore won't like this. I am one that can never decide on one fragrance for every day...its always changing. I love MK, J'adore, Kenzo, Daisy...and THIS! Its so subtle in its sweetness and very feminine without being floral. I think its a great addition for those who like variety in fragrance depending on their mood.
I love this color....its my drugstore version of a more wearable MAC pink plaid LS. I went back and forth and glad I finally got it, it goes well with lighter skin tones that can't do nudes or frosty pinks which is me. I will probably end up buying backups, I feel its a good everyday color.
Powder -Coty - airspun loose face powder translucent extra coverage

So, I've been eyeing this product for nearly 2 years because of the raves on here....yet everytime i wandered over to the section of Walgreens I would just pick it up and put it right back down...mostly because of the strong fragrance. I recall hearing there was a unscented one but I've never seen it. Finally after finishing my last translucent powder...I picked it up. I have been using it for 2 months now and I seriously want to stock up because I don't want to be without it...It totally smooths out my face without being cakey. I have dry sensitive skin and this does not irritate or accentuate dryness. I am actually starting to get used to smell to the point that I think I actually LIKE it....

I bought this because of reviews on here and on the Sally's site. I tried it several times thinking I was doing it wrong but I read the directions again and still...I really don't like it. It doesn't leave my hair feeling soft and manageble but rather tangled and frizzy when it dries. I prefer other things from Sally's and don't think the whole sulfate free shampoos really work for me since I have curly hair that can be difficult.
I use this for brows and a base for my regular mascara. Helps to tame them and put them in place before I add color. I use it every day and will keep buying it over and over. lasts forever too.
I got this free as well and when I smelled the tester I immediately closed it right back up. I tried it on my skin and it actually smelled better but it DEFINITELY is a rip off of something I just can't pin what. I wouldn't buy it when the sample runs out but I'll use it up. I do tend to like oriental floral types but this just isn't distinct enough to love.
