Okay, here's the thing. I did a number on my hair-- yellow and orange hag hair. It was awful. I did have some very light highlights come out correctly, but the rest HAD to go. I grabbed a box of this stuff at WallyWorld. In desperation, and after reading reviews here, I slapped it on and left it for 25 minutes. Results? Orange is gone. Yellow, still there. I think it's expensive for one application that isn't a HG. However, it's worth a shot before making an appointment at your stylist. I have forked over $150 (in 2003 or so) for professional results that were no better than I got today for $10 USD.

Okay, here's the trick-- don't push your fingers into the goop. Just rub your fingers across the top and it's a lot less goopy and more manageable to apply. I put it on cheekbones, nose and forehead over concealer and under foundation and it's perfect. Just don't put much on, or you'll be sorry! I really like this stuff.
I've used this product (the waterproof version) for years for my moderately thin, sparse, blonde-ish lashes. Definitely thickens them up which is GREAT! It does tend to clump easily and, particularly when it's humid, will end up under my eyes. Still, I have tried many others (lancome, clinique, great lash - pink tube) and nothing suits me better as yet. Still looking, though... Until I find the BBD, this is a pretty good mascara.

Yup, it's greasy, but it does the trick when applied daily. And the lemon smell is very strong, but I like it.
I love this scent. I have a lot of trouble finding something that lasts on me, and this one stays around without being overpowering. Elegant, sophisticated scent.
Yes, you DO risk looking "mask-y" if you don't apply with a light touch and blend like crazy, but this is TOTALLY the HG concealer for me. I have skin discoloration from the Pill and from years of sunworshipping (before we knew it was a bad thing!) and this stuff is AWESOME! I put it on over a moisturizer (or vitamin E oil- works wonders on dry skin)and it works great! Then I put on my regular foundation (I did mention a light touch, right?) and voila! Flawless, but not too makeup-y looking, skin!
I have loved these eyeliners forever! They are expensive, but entirely worth it. They stay put, don't pull my lids and have a nice, creamy texture without being too goopy. LOVE this product!
I'm with Stephanie99: I remember the huge-sized lipsmackers from when we were kids. Yum! These are GREAT, particularly the Dr. Pepper which gives a nice, light reddish gloss to lips and tastes yummy. For the price, how can you go wrong?
Okay, sorry to break from the pack of negative reviews, but I LOVE these things. If you don't mind sticky lipgloss, this is the stuff for you. I find that if it's not sticky, it's gone quickly. The colors are nice, the rounded tip of the applicator gives great slip to the product, and it's a nice size that doesn't come uncapped in my purse. Pretty, inexpensive, I love them.

Just LOVE the rose scent. Sort of reminds me of benetint lip balm, but less pigment and less expensive. The tin, while cute, could use some work. The top is way too loose to get thrown in my purse without risking disaster. Fine for pockets, though.
This is GREAT! It works as a mask, no doubt. But also, when I'm getting one of those awful, monthly break-outs, I apply some of this stuff directly to the zit and the next morning-- voila! much smaller.
When I was in my teens, this stuff was horrible. Did nothing to help with the acne, didn't take off makeup well-- I had no use for it, despite the urgings of my dermatologist. However, now that I'm turning 40, this stuff is pretty good. It's gentle, it doesn't dry out or irritate my sensitive, combo skin. It *still* doesn't take off makeup well, but the addition of a non-drying toner works wonders. For the price, it's pretty good stuff.
Sorry, Avon, but this isn't for me. Makes my face sort of red. When I already have freckles and ruddy skin, that's NOT a plus. The foam and the packaging is pretty fun, though.
Clumpy, yes, but for gals like me with skimpy lashes, this is the thing! If you want big, fat, sooty lashes (or just want to plump up your little skinny lashes), try this. Just be careful to use a clean wand or brush to fix the clumps before they set.
Sadly, this stuff flakes and, if you get the slightest bit damp, runs. Yuck. I, too, read about it in magazines and can't imagine WHY it's so well reviewed.
