This goes on & stays on - like a dream! Problem is, as others have said, it irritates the crap out of my eyes!! Too bad cause the color is 'intense' - deep chocolate brown, glides on easily, stays on ALL day but just makes my eyes tear constantly and burn while it's on. I had some trouble also with the packaging... doesn't always wind up when it should - have to mess around a bit. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The tip cracked off once or twice - which is HOW I noticed the problem w/the pkg. I've used it twice to be sure I wasn't just having some kinda bad allergy day - but no, it's definitely this eyeliner. Surprised me, coming from Clinique & all. Too bad.

It's just INCREDIBLE... period. I could not stop the itching on my lower legs. I thought it was a shaving issue (tried everything... brand new razors ea. time, moisturizer as shave cream, just everything). And then I thought it was just extreme dry skin so tried all the heavy duty moisturizers I could find but NOTHING stopped the itching until THIS!! I can't believe it! In one or maybe two uses - the itching is over. I am sooo happy! Thanks Curel!!! If you itch, RUN - do not walk - to find this stuff!
Don't like it. Can't really put my finger on what notes I'm getting from it but nothing stands out and it just smells like some basic 'perfumey perfume'. Sorry Hypnotic lovers! Boring and kind of annoying.
Why does NYX think it's okay to totally change the color of a product but KEEP the old name?? After reading some of the earlier reviews on "Salsa" lipgloss, I wanted it (the Reddish/Pink - deeper version, that could leave a stain or needed to be 'blotted' to tone it down a bit), but so what I ended up with is (apparently) a revised/new shade of "Salsa" that is a super pale, cool pink w/teensy glitter. Very pretty in it's own right but totally not what I was looking for. Super pale shades don't work so hot on my pretty deeply pigmented lips. Kinda sux. Now I can go thru the hassle of sending it back or keep it. Great product if that's the shad you're looking for. Love NYX in general but can't they just discontinue a color or come up with a new name when they totally change the shade??? I mean, really????
LOVE this product! But it goes to show you, everyone's hair takes differently to every product. My hair tends to be very dry, fine, highlighted and ALWAYS needs conditioner. I used this for the 1st time today and felt like I could actually SKIP???? conditioner? I ended up using a spray leave-in when I got out of the shower, but don't think that is the cause of my very smooth, shiny, bouncy healthy looking hair. I THINK it's the Karma Komba!! Maybe it's not for EVERY day use but I could see using it like every other or every 3rd shampoo. Smells sooooooooo good! Clean, fresh, herbal-ly!
The reason I say I wouldn't buy this product again is mainly because - and I'm NO expert BUT - I think this smells VERY much like "Joop" by Joop - the men's fragrance! And I haven't checked the price on that in a looooong time (nor do I know if it's even still being made) but I bet Joop is much less pricey!! I got a decant of this from theperfurmedcourt.com site and "Joop" is all I can think of when I've worn it. I happen to like Joop, so that's okay (more so on a guy though). I think TF leans heavily to the masculine side - unisex... maybe, but hardly. Couldn't fairly comment on packaging as I bought it in a generic decant bottle.

I've not been able to find a leave-in product that does exactly what I wanted until this. It makes my dry, slightly damaged, fine, highlighted hair feel so silky and smooth and it lasts! So many products make it feel good for about 1/2 a day, and then my split ends start rearin' their ugly heads and my hair begins to get tangly and knotty towards the ends. This keeps it slippery, smooth, and glossy! Love it.
Hate it. Giant brush that clumps but does nothing else. I get that it should be a dark blue but sheesh... can't even tell it's any kinda blue unless maybe you're in really bright sunlight and even then you have to look really close. Very lame product.
I wish I had read the reviews first but it's not like I spent alot of $ on it (sale at Target). Smells great and that's where the positive stuff ends. Drying, drying, drying. And for a shampoo that claims to moisturize, that's just incredible to me!
Maybe I'm crazy (or maybe the formula has changed as I bought mine a few years - at least - ago) but I dug this out today feeling "springy". Noticed in the reviews here that it's like Grifter minus the glitter?? Mine has a ton of silver glitter/sparkles in it (hence, a ton of fallout!). Very little color payoff - lotsa fallout. Was considering buying Grifter but if it's MORE glittery then Asphyxia - then I guess not! Ok-ish color but not worth the hassle IMHO.
