I loved the shade Drop Dead Red, the perfect red for me but after only wearing it for an hour it bleed and smeared all over my lips. I couldn't beleive it when I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I almost died of embrassement and nobody at work had the courage to tell me that I looked like Dracula after he had dinner. What made it worse was that the color stained my lips so I had a hard time cleaning up the mess. Normally I would love it when a lipstick had a little bit of stain to it but not when it's running down my chin! I gave it one more try but ended up with the same results. My friend loved the shade on me (before it smeared) so when I told her I was going to toss it she begged me for it. The next day she called me up yelling at me because it smeared all over her chin as well. What a shame the quality was horrible but yet the color was beautiful.
I got this as a gift and I've only used it a couple of times. I don't care for the rollerball application and the color is so sheer. Even though it's suppose to soften and plump your lips I didn't notice any difference after I put it on and the light burning sensation doesn't excite me. I'm not one with high expectations when it comes to cosmetic items but to me this is just a okay lipgloss. Nothing more and nothing less

When I want the look of a liquid liner but don't want the hassle I always reach for this pencil. It applies smoothly (no tugging on the eyelid) and gives off a rich black color. I only apply it to the lid because I know it will smudge like crazy on my lower lid, just about everything does! I haven't had any problems with it smudging on top but then again I am applying it over a shadow base and eyeshadow. Great product, easy application, and I always get compliments when I wear this.

This was a mess. First off I didn't care for the gold sparkle. Second, it changed the color of the eyeshadow I layered over it. I want a eyeshadow base that will intensify the color not change it! Third it creased 30mins later, a record! I don't have extremely oily eyelids so I was surprised by the creasing. I've had great results with Benefit FYI, UD Potion Primer, Lancome Color Tubes (as a primer) and decent results with Pout creme shadows. With better options out there this one got tossed in the trash.

I really like this primer. I have dry skin and I've found that my skin "drinks" up my foundation during the day. Using this primer has really helped my foundation last through out the day. I've used SD 70% Seaweed Gel over this as well as MD Skincare tinted moisturizer and the Tarte tinted moisturizer and my skin just "glows" all day. I have never had so many compliments about my complexion before and I believe it's because this primer helps my foundation look so natural on my skin. I also like the fact that it doesn't have a real slick feel to it like the Smashbox, Nars, & English Idea's primers do. The only other primer that comes close is by Fresh but this is my favorite. Pretty pricy at $40 but all you need is one pump so the product should last awhile. I've been using it for over month and I'm still in love with it. Will repurchase again
This is the only Stila eyeshadow I own that looks horrible on me. It's way to frosty on me. I have to use a *very* light hand when I apply this on the lid or brow bone.
The best there is. I've owned my tweezers for over 9 years and it's still pretty sharp. Tweezerman does offer to sharpen it for free (just have to pay for postage) but I don't own a back up pair of tweezers. I've heard it usually takes about 3 weeks before you get it back. This was probably one of the best cosmetic related purchases I've ever made.
I've tried to make this product work but I've given up. I've seen this on others and it always looks so natural. This dries before I get a chance to blend it out and I'm left looking like a clown. Makeup application should be fun. This product was just way to much work for me.
This shade just didn't work for me. I'm a NC35 and for some reason mauve's and pinks just don't look good on me. I looked washed out. Oh well I returned it and got my money back.
I didn't like this at all. It flaked on me and bothered my eyes. I got rid of it after only one week. It took me that long to figure out that it was the mascara bothering my eyes. Also I do not wear contacts.
I love to stock up on this when its buy one get one free at Ulta. I usually spend no more than $5 dollers on this and until I can find another mascara for less I'll stick with this one. It builds decent length and thickness. My only complaint is that it takes awhile for it to dry. At least it doesn't flake on me which is my biggest pet peeve. I refuse to spend a lot of money on something that needs to replaced after a couple of months.
Finally a Chanel fragrance that I do like. This won't be a everyday fragrance for me but maybe for a special occasion. One word of caution: one spritz is really all you need. Anymore and it can become cloying.
I give this the same review that I gave the lip glaze. The colors are beautiful but I don't like the click pens, I find it messy and the price is way to high for me to justify another purchase. I have other lip glosses that I like better for half the price of this. If you like to splurge then this might be a option for you.
This is the only eyelash curler that doesn't pinch my eye lid. On the flip side I find it to be a extra step every morning. I guess I'm not that "wowed" by it to use it everyday. I'm glad I bought it but I'm not sure if I'll replace it when the pads are worn.
I really had no luck with this foundation. First off I couldn't find the right shade for me and second the coverage isn't the greatest. After a couple of hours it just "slid" off my face and left me looking oily. For $45 I want to be in love with a product and I want it to last longer than 6 weeks. This product didn't live up to my expectations.
