I think this product is great in concept! A mini eyelash curler is great for adding extra curls to hard to reach lashes! I bought it to add more curls to lashes in the outer corner of my eyes for a more flirtatious look. But this product is a bit clumsy, it does "bend" lashes more than curling them. Also it's a bit hard to use, because it's not spring-loaded, the curling action can feel a bit clumsy. Also it was harder than I initially thought to have control over which section I want to curl.. Overall, it's pretty cheap, I would say try it, it might work well for you!
Lip Treatments -Carmex - Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm

I normally LOVE Carmex products! So when this came out I was only too excited! I love the way it's in a stick! But that's where it stops.. It just doesn't feel the same as the Carmex lip balms I have loved.. this one actually dries up my lips and smells really synthetic.. I won't be buying again.. actually thinking of going back to Burt's Bees for a bit now :)
Definitely will NOT buy this again! I was using the Mirenesse tubing mascara and wasn't completely happy, so I decided to try this one. & it is just crap! I have fine lashes, and I curl my eyelashes with a MAC eyelash curler and then apply the mascara.. the mascara does NOTHING, and doesn't even keep my lashes curled..
Moisturizers -Lancome - GÉNIFIQUE REPAIR Youth Activating Night Cream

Overall this product is OK, but nothing special especially when you consider value for money. I used to use "Bienfait Multi-Vital Nuit" by Lancome and I loved it! That was the miracle night cream for me, but sadly they have discontinued it, so I've decided to give this a try. The cream texture is velvety and it smells divine, but other than that it didn't give me the "new amazing skin" look the morning after, which "Bienfait Multi-Vital Nuit" did. I'm still looking for a night cream that truly renews my skin overnight, but in the meantime, this will do.
This is the best mascara ever! When I curl my eyelashes and then use this (2 layers), it looks like I have false lashes on, simply divine! The product doesn't come off easily (it's a good and bad thing I guess), even when I use Lancome's own Bi-Facil eye make up remover, it still doesn't come off easily. It doesn't dry my lashes, doesn't clump and it's easy to build volume with. I think the cheaper mascara that does the same thing would be Lash Architect by L'Oreal.
I used to love this mascara! Even though it does only give a more natural look, it was adequate for my day look, long-wearing, smudge-proof. I also simply loved how it came off so easily with warm water. My recent 2 purchases of this product have been less than impressive (similar to what people have already been saying), the product must have been old when it was sent to me because it was dry and did not apply to my eyelashes well.. and at that price I am not gonna bother a third time, I've bought Blinc Mascara to try since it does similar things.. On a side note my favorite mascaras are Lash Architect by L'Oreal (cheaper option), or Hypnose by Lancome!
