Love this eyeliner. Amazing dark black color that *lasts* -- i used to think Stila's onyx e/l was the blackest pencil out there but it had no staying power. But this has both that and UD beat. Hooray for drugstore finds ;)
SO not worth even a penny. I got this for free but it doesn't do a single thing it claims to do. No shine, softness or anything "special".
Gorgeous color, esp for MMM ladies. A sheer burnt bronze. A great basic to wear alone or over other lipcolors - esp nude ones. Just wish it were longer lasting.
Verrry pigmented. I saw this on a SA and looked like the perfect flush on her tanned skintone. However, it's very rosy on me ;\ but sheered out and with a gold highlighter it's quite pretty.
Quick and easy? HA! painful and ineffective? you bet. Used this on my upper lip and took like maybe 4 hairs out and left a mess of wax on my lip. Gross.
Great everyday wear-with-anything e/s for my tanned skin. Lovely quality and looks esp nice with black winged e/l. Shows up as a neutral champagne e/s...good basic.
I really like this lotion. Most times when companies say something is coconut-scented, it's nausea inducing. But this is relatively light, fresh and the liquidy lotion sinks in and feels good on the skin (esp if you use it at night). Great for spring/summer.
This didn't do much for me. It is very watery in comparison to my other mousses and it had no hold ...i had to use more than i usually do and still, hair fell flat. medium thick curly hair.

These are akin to Juicy tubes...sheer, not very sticky, tube packaging. This color is a sheer brown pink that looks amazing with a tan. I gave it three stars because I have other mlbb colors that I reach for more often. Love Dior ;)

Such a lovely color for a warmed toned gal. A glowy peachy bronze with the slightest hint of pink. Lovely. BUT. the highlighter is .....interesting in that if you use too much of that side, you end up with bruised looking cheeks (due to the purple veining) so that's annoying. But the glowiness, oh the glowiness. Mac should patent its MSF formula. Edit: LOVE. the sheen this gives is just... ;))

Looks very pretty in the pan -- sort of a very warm coppery peachy orange with bronzey undertones. But it was too orange on me skin (d'oh) and I'm not into that look. Would look HOT on DDD's tho.
Good, lasting black e/l. I use this inner rims once in a while, and while not as dark as stila's onyx pencil *sigh*, it has better staying power than UD's zero.

Sorry to ruin the raves but this did not work for me. Initially, the serum made my skin feel smooth and nice, but then I started to feel tight in areas like my cheeks ,etc. Also, I think the "glow" I saw was more from the greasy feeling this left! so, I was dry *and* greasy. plus this is pretty pricey for a drugstore item.
Great dupe of Chanel Vamp, and is very much like Essie Wicked. Pretty decent quality. Love vampy n/p.
