Shampoo -John Frieda - Luxurious volume full splendor

Dried out the ends over my hair from the first wash and made it weird. Made my hair seem less full and stringy. Do not recommend. Didn't do anything to my hair.
Didn't do anything to my hair. Not worth the money. Also was very drying, from the first time.
I am a huge Lancome fan, but this is the worst lipstick I have ever invested in! I am quite fair but you can barely see the lipstick. It has a washed out pigmentation and most of the color fades with only shimmer left on the lips. Yuck. And this lipstick is not moisturizing either and the texture is nasty. I don't recommend. I'm sorry I bought it. You can find something better from Revlon! Next!
I was very disappointed with this product. I put 3 coats on and you still couldn't see any mascara! No volume, no length, no lift/curl. It's going back. Yuck.
Good for applying color, buffing out and blending. Could also be used in the eye crease. Happy to have purchased it!
It's really cute but did not grab any color. I had bought it for my eyeshadows, for detail work. Perhaps it's really meant to work for emollient products only.
It made my hair silky, shiny and slightly bouncy but no real volume. My hair got greasy really quickly though, like in 24 hours. Will not buy again.

I got this as a gift with a purchase. It's a beautiful color, goes well with my nc20 skin. Goes well with all colors...So happy I got it!!
Though it seems moisturizing when used in the shower, it actually dries the hair up. I used it for a long time and my hair was dry. I kept on thinking it's from the shampoos I was using. Once I stopped using this product, my hair improved....
Can be lifting if used properly!! It's a nice mascara and can create a nice look. The cons of this product are that you need multiple coats to achieve the dense lifted look and the product dried up quickly (like within a month).

It's quite long-lasting and does the job. Has spf 10. One major problem though is that it can be drying to the delicate skin under the eyes, even if you use a moisturizer prior to application. It dries and creates little lines. :(

I LOVE THIS BRUSH!!! It's perfect for creating cat eyes!! I am so in love with it. So glad I bought it. Better than the 266 as it is thinner....And the size is so perfect. One of the best investments I've made in the area of make-up...

Pro: Good for drawing a thin line. Con: Not for cat eyes! I'm not really interested in a thin line. If it weren't too cute of a brush I would have returned it by now...
Tried it at the store. It sunk into my pores and as others said, it looked chalky because it grabbed onto dry patches. Color match, #3 seemed to work for me and it was a good color match. I don't think I will purchase this product because my skin looked noticeably irritated the next day - many little red spots under the skin...
