I got this product from my mom and I do not like this mascara because it weighs my lashes down so basically curling my lashes is pointless. I think it would be great for someone who has lashes that do work with wet mascaras. But when it dries it it's not the greatest for layering because it gets flaky. I use it for layering under my covegirl lash blast mascara. I don't like this mascara and will not purchase this again.

I don't own this but I think I will stop by sephora and purchase the rollerball because although it took me months to actually like it I remember recently wearing this and it lasted the entire day, I kept wondering what it was and remembered that I had sprayed it on myself earlier when I was at the mall. It has incredible staying power and I kept getting whiffs of it during the day. I love how Taylor put so much thought into it. the packaging is fabulous and as a major taylor fan it really reflects her personality. I am 17, but always lean towards older more mature scents, however I do particularly enjoy this. It's good, and ill probably be purchasing this soon
I just took a look at the posted pictures above and their eyelashes look great, but I'm not impressed with this. My lashes are very thin and the mascara is overly dry so when I apply it it's very clumpy and doesn't apply well. When I want to build volume and add a second coat, I can't without me getting thick spidery, clumpy, brittle looking lashes. I would not buy this again
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Gorgeous Perfume Eau De Parfum

I just bought this at the semi-annual sale yesterday (yup eventhough their website says it ended a while ago, the sale is still on in stores, which was a pleasant surprise) I got the full 8.4 fl. Ounces bottle and it was in the fragrance mist so mine didn't come with the atomizer. However the perfume of this that was left out as a tester had a broken atomizer so I couldn't even smell the perfume. Anyways I purchased this for a steal of $6.25. It has a great smell and I have not yet worn it on a full day out alone (meaning I sprayed other perfumes on) but it smells fruity, but not overly sweet and like those cheaper drugstore body mists. Obviously compared to the higher end brands it has a very simple mix of smells. I love the packaging for the price and it was one if the reasons why I bought it. I'm excited to wear it and see it's lasting power so that's the reason why I gave it a 4/5 rating. But I'll come back to update it. I'm very happy with my purchase and am very excited to go on the FIRST DAY of the semi annual sale next January rather than waiting a month later to go :P K so I've worn it out quite a bit and love the smell, but it is not as strong as a perfume but I like it. UPDATE
I don't understand why the reviews for this perfume is so low. I remember I really wanted to smell this and ordered a sample but it never came in the mail so I was quite disappointed. Then I remember smelling this on my sister and I didn't know it was this at the time. When she told me I was like mm! So I went to sephora and got a sample and began wearing it. And I love it. I has a beautiful musky florally scent almost and it's such a wearable scent. It is more of a mature scent and I always lean toward older styles with clothing and like everything. I really enjoy this overall and would buy it again. The only reason I took off 1 lippie for packaging was because it's functional but I would have preferred a prettier design :P

I got mine in plum, since I've purchased the Sephora cream liner I love it and can compare it to this one. I didn't really like this product. It was very dry and it's def not as creamy as my sephora one. It comes off too so I don't like it that much. I wouldn't re-purchase this though. For the quality of this eyeliner the price is not very cheap.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professionnel Angled Liner/Eyeliner Brush #15

I do love this brush but the reason why I took off one point is because when I go to clean it the bristles separate in spaces. But it is a great applicator brush and it is extremely precise. I don't know if I'd re-purchase it again just because this is my first real eyeliner brush so I can't say much. I would probably want to try other eyeliner brushes after so I can get a feel on what I like. However I do like this brush
I love this product. I've only used it for two days yet it is already showing what it's capable of. I wear eyeliner only on my upper eyelid. So usually within an hour I'll have to constantly wipe under my eye because the eyeliner has rubbed off and it gives me light greyish circles under my eyes even though I never touch or rub my eyes to begin with. I used the Maybelline gel liner in plum and it is so dry when I first opened it and I believe I got it for $10. This Sephora cream liner is sooooo creamy and it stays put forever. It doesn't rub off under my eyes and I didn't even set it with eye shadow afterwards. It is completely waterproof and very opaque so I only dip my brush in a tiny bit (barely though) and draw one line (usually no need for double dipping for one eye) and my line is perfect and drawn. I LOVE THIS EYELINER! Plus the stay power is amazing and usually when I go to curl my lashes this is a HUGE problem too, my eyelash curler usually takes off a lot of my eyeliner which sucks and makes this a pain everyday. When I went to do it this morning and yesterday nothing came off! I absolutely love love love this! For $13 that's amazing considering the quality of this and that it's only $3 more than the useless Maybelline gel liner. GO GET IT! I would most definitely re-purchase this.
