I use this along with rocking Ringlets (posted there as well) and have to say i LOVE THE RESULTS... I was skeptical about Jessicurl's whole "curly-hair-requires-different-ingredients" hype, but once you see the results you'll be a believer! Just stick with it, and your hair will change to be the hair you've always wanted. (at least it did for me)
Just started using Jessicurl and was SKEPTICAL as all get out -- but i have to say, so far i'm genuinely impressed!! I've used the products for about a week so far, and at first -- not enough change as i'd hoped. But by the end of the week? A dramatic impact on my curls and frizz. I'm on the band wagon whole-heartedly, i use the WHOLE line now. LOVE IT!!

I live on the beach and was hoping that this would help tame my waves, but i really think this was designed for people with LIGHT waves in their hair. My hair is thin, curly... i think just a little too curly for this stuff. Didn't give me the results i was hoping for.

I did NOT like the results with this -- made my roots feel stiff and crunchy. I like to be able to have toucheable hair, just felt gnarly. I have thin, curly hair and was hoping this would give extra volume... just not the results i wanted.

It wasn't my favorite way to get extra volume in my hair. I have fine, curly hair -- and DEFINATELY want the volume! But wasn't completely satisfied with the results. Didn't get the volume in at the roots that i wanted, still felt like i was fighting with my hair. It's just ok for me.
Just not enough bang for my buck -- fun packaging, great color, fun taste. But it has a tacky feel, things stick all over it and it wears off far quicker than i'm willing to re-apply. I don't like feeling like i'm a slave to my lip gloss tube.
I totally agree with the last poster -- so overrated. Just not practical. For photo shoots? i'm sure it's sexy to the hilt -- how many women do photo shoots? More of a novelty item than a staple.

What a great product -- 7 fabulous neutral shades, which will work on practically EVERYBODY. The shadows are magnetized in, so they don't fall out. I use this constantly, would buy it again in a heartbeat. Fabulous product, and great for packing or on-the-go. I LOVE IT!
i purchased this and just honestly, didn't use it that much. Just didn't LOVE it like i thought i would.
I loved this for accent colors -- great greens!! One of my favorites, my only gripe is that it broke fairly easily once i used it down to a certain point. Same thing happened to my best friend who adores California Girl. But other than that, love it!
I loved this stuff!! Great for highlighting and shading -- i used it like CRAZY, and i now i can't find it anymore. This was a staple -- i used it for a couple weddings, proms... very versatile for anyone. I LOVE IT!
I got 2 of these as a gift -- and they didn't work for me at all. The shimmer on some of them was just too intense (& i'm in my 20's!). Also, the chunky size of the stick frustrated me. Not a bad concept, just didn't like the execution in the product.
This is a great cream eyeshadow. No creasing whatsoever, great colors. Just don't apply it with a heavy hand. I just use my finger and blend it in -- it looks natural, fabulous and QUICK. Great for on the go -- I LOVE IT!
I don't know why, but for some reason when i cry, this mascara makes my eyes BURN. I switch to my Maybelline stand by, and i have no problem. I don't like to use waterproof mascara (i just like it to rinse right off) so this just didn't work for me.

I use the clear gel all the time -- I set my eyebrows and also use it over my mascara for some extra hold -- it also helps my lashes look thicker by giving them the "wet" look. It's a permanent staple in my makeup box.
