I love this mascara! Gives me length and volume, plus it keeps my curl. For an extended review of the product + comparison to the COVERGIRL LASHBLAST VOLUME, check out the link to my blog post below :) http://sincerelystephh.blogspot.ca/2013/01/tarte-lights-camera-lashes-vs-covergirl.html
This works pretty good for me.It doesn't pinch at my eye which some eyelash curlers do. It's wide enough for my eyes and it's cheap. It curls my eyelashes enough even when my eyelashes are crazy. I'm not expecting it to give me miraculous results and for the price I enjoy this a lot.
I'm a brunette and most of the time it's hard to find a really good dry shampoo that doesn't leave a greyish tiny to my dark hair. But in all honesty I'm really not that picky when it comes to that because I just want a dry shampoo that will take care of the oil and grease and this does the trick! I have the dry shampoo in the blush scent, and I don't really like the scent but I don't hate it, it's just there. It's a lot better than some other dry shampoos i've smelled though. This sprays a good amount of product and the nozzle allows it to spray dispersly and not all in one part. It doesn't feel very "wet" like some dry shampoos do after they start to run out or just in general. It also doesn't leave my hair with too much of a dry/powedery texture, but I can definitely still tell I've used dry shampoo because of the texture of my hair.
I'm currently using this system right now, I've been using it for over a year. I don't suffer from severe break outs but I do get a couple mainly around my cheek area closer to my nose. I have sensitive skin, that's both oily and dry. So it's a bit of everything basically. After first using these products I noticed a huge change in my skin! My break outs were clearing up. I've tried many other skin cleansers and none seemed to give me the results I wanted. Once I started to continue to use these products I fell in love with them more. I stopped using the toner after a while, and I've seen no difference when I do or don't use it . Sometimes I get lazy and I don't wash my face with this cleanser and my break outs reappear...so that obviously means this isn't really treating my acne from the "root" but it's preventing it as long as I use it.
I bought this product because I loved the smell and also because my hair always smells a bit weird after I straighten it (which I do every time I wash my hair) Some people will think this smells waaaay too sweet, but I really like sweet scents so this is perfect for me. The concept of the hair perfume is interesting, the nozzle on the bottle sprays a good amount of product and disperses it around a large area of my hair. It also has softening properties? (not totally sure on the correct term) and it does help tamp my frizz a bit when I spray it on my hair. I really only need 1-2 spritzes and this and I'm ready to go
I bought this because of all the hype over this product and also because the packaging is really pretty! I have the clear one, in quenched. The smell of it is great I really like it. It's very fruity. As for the moisturizing component of this lip balm, I do find it to moisturize my lips but it has that addictive quality in it that makes me want to re apply every time it wears off. The lip balm soaks into my lips well and as my flavour says it "quenches" my lips nicely. At first it did chap my lips a bit though. It's not the most amazing chap stick ever, but I do really enjoy it.
My favourite product from LUSH so far! It makes your water pink and I love the smell, but it doesn't really last in the bath tub itself. It makes so many bubbles that you hardly need any! It's a great way for me to relax, because I love taking bubble baths and the smell is great. The price is a little much for me, maybe if it was $2-3 cheaper but I'll still repurchase it. It lasts for a while for me since I don't take bubble baths on a weekly basis.
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Fresh Brown Sugar Lip Polish

I bought this from sephora in a set with the matching lip balm. I'm not that impressed with it considering the price of it alone. The sugar component of the scrub isn't as harsh as I would like it, for me it hardly scrubs the dead skin from my lips by it's self. I have to use a toothbrush along with the scrub to do the job properly. I really don't like the taste of it as well.
I was kind of nervous to purchase this product (not because of the price) but because I had a terrible experience with the original great lash. The one everyone seems to have tried at least once. That mascara was terrible! But I've seen a lot of people use this mascara so I really wanted to try it and I was so pleasantly surprised! The bristles are plastic which is always a good chance I'll like this mascara a bit more. It takes a little time to get used to especially since the brush is so small and I'm used to wands like lash blast volume! But this lengthened my lashes and it didn't give me a weird length that some mascaras do. It also made it look like I had a ton of lashes! Hence the name. It gave me enough volume and at the same time enough separation!
Sexy Curves? Not even, this mascara gave my lashes no curves at all! It left my lashes sticking just up, even when I curled them with an eyelash curler. It was a nightmare. I really don't like this product and I regret buying it. I tried layering it with other mascara's but still that "curve" wasn't there.
I thought I was going to like this product because I've seen people use it and their eyelashes have looked great. Not to mention it has a synthetic bristle brush which I like more than the actual not plastic bristles? But this mascara separated my lashes waaaay too much. It left gaps in between them, making them look a bit clumpy. I go for mascara that mainly volumize and then separate, but this didn't volumize my lashes at all and it also left that plastic feeling on my eyelashes which I don't like.

This mascara has everything that I want in a mascara! It volumizes my lashes like crazy, so if you don't like that look I don't recommend this product. The formula of it is dry and here's the only issue with this mascara (other than the price) it seems like the mascara dries up very quickly! Unless it's just my imagination but I think it dries a bit too quickly and then the gunk gets right at the end of the wand (not the bristles) I would still buy this again because I love the way it makes my lashes look and I have yet to find a drugstore mascara that does the same.
This mascara makes my eyelashes feel very fake? and rubbery? It separates them nicely and it also adds a tiny bit of length but I can't get over the feeling and the look of the rubberyness it puts on my lashes! The formula isn't all that great, the wand I like because it was synthetic brushes, which I tend to go for in a mascara.
I have a love and hate relationship with this product. The way I like to have my eyelashes look seem to come from mascara's that have a bit of a drier formula. This mascara is quite wet and the first couple uses make my lashes look really ... well not what I prefer. But once the formula dries up a bit I am in love with this product! Granted, I don't follow the 3 month rule where after using a mascara for 3 months you throw it out. So once my mascara starts to get drier and drier to me it works even greater ! I still rate this 4/5 because even when the formula is wet it still does a great job with my lashes just not the best and the results when the formula is drier is amazing for me!
