I bought this thinking that it would be amazing because I heard awesome reviews on it on makeup alley. It was really intexpensive on sale at London Drugs ($6) and I was super excited to try it. But sadly when I came home to try it out... it was a mess when I opened it...the brush and an ENORMOUS amount of product on it.... enough that even if I tried to put it... I knew my lashes would just lump together into one huge lash! I also didn't want to use it and have to wipe away a bunch of the excess product on a tissue everytime I use it. The only good thing i can say about the mascara was the brush.. it's huge and awesome so now I use the brush with other mascaras. I'm thinking that perhaps I got a bad or spoiled one... can someone tell me if they've had this problem with the mascara? I'm looking at the reviews and no one seems to have had this problem so maybe I'll buy another just to see.

No offense....but some of you are idiots!!! This product is ment for dry skin!!! There is a reason why this is not working for people with oil and combination skin..it is thick because people with dry skin absorb moisturizers faster so this makes it long lasting. I mean really people!! If you have oily or combination skin please use Bontanical Kinectics Hyrdating Lotion... it's ment for you.. it's too light for people with dry skin... I really like this moisturizer.. it's rivals my Yon-ka moisturizer which is twice the price... I also like how it is made with plants so I don't feel bad about the chemical's I'm putting on my face with other moisturizers. When I put this on my face it feels great and gives my face a nice glow.. and it seems to last all through the night which I found some other moisturizers can't accomplish. The reason I gave this 4 stars is because the price might be a tad high for some people
This Mascara is great!! you just have to know how to put it on, before applying this mascara grab a tissue to wipe of the excess product on the brush. When applying on your lashes, use a zing zag motion back and forth on your lashes...don't just apply in an upward motion... I thought that this was a no brainer to veteran mascara users, but apparently not. This might help prevent the clumping many of you complain about. if you find your mascara clumping wipe the brush of mascara completely and use the brush in the zing zag motion again and the lashes should separate. oh and by the way.. no mascara flakes by itself unless you rub your eyes. So to avoid flaking..it's as simple as not rubbing your eyes. This product also works really well with a primer. I use my lancome primer with this mascara and my lashes look significantly fuller than mascara without a primer.

I used this becuase I wanted a semi permement dye to cover the reminence of my red hair dye. when I used it | noticed it smelled kinda weird...but that's to be expected of at home colour.. but it was easy to apply with dry hair and didnt stain my skin. The only thing unusual that I noticed about my hair was that it turned a dark brown instead of the light beigre brown I wanted. so next time I want to use it I will put it in for wayyyy less time. The conditioner that came with the dye works well. It makes my hair soft.. and slightly shiny which is hard with my curly hair.
