I thought Maybelline's Full & Soft was my holy grail, but i think this beats it. It doesn't say it on the product description, but it leaves my lashes soft & not hard. Why i love it is b/c, i apply it in the AM & do not have smudges in the evening. Not a very dramatic look. I'd say more natural. I have contacts & my eyes are INCREDIBLY sensitive, & there are fibers in the formula, & i think it irritates them sometimes. I've purchased this twice, & sadly i think i'll have to find something else b/c of the fibers. B/c of the fibers, it also gets 4 lippies instead of 5. So i guess its not my holy grail & i'll keep looking.
It's funny that after switching from Aveeno Ultra Calming Foaming Facial Cleanser to this, that the breakouts from my skin seemed to go away without me applying any kind of special acne product. This cleanser is gentle and not drying at all and I feel like my face gets more clean than with the Cetaphil. The only weird thing is that is smells exatcly like Johnsons Baby Shampoo; probably because it's obviously made by the same company. The bottom line is that this cleanser is wonderful and I would definately repurchase!

It's funny how the product description on the back of the bottle says its for dry sensitive skin. This dried my face like crazy! I also had breakouts while using this. It could have been from the summer, sweaty, slightly oily skin or it could have been because this dried my face out so horribly that my skin went into oil production over drive. And I did put moisturizer on after this. Also it didn't really do anything as far as redness went. This product simply didn't work for me.

This is the mascara I will ALWAYS come back too. Doesn't clump as bad as others I've tried, and truly leaves the lashes full and soft. I really hope maybelline will continue to make this FOREVER!!!!!

I love these! The first time I bought them I was a freshman in high school and then sort of forgot about them. A few years later, I bought them again and remembered how fantastic they are! Particularly useful now in the summer, as my face is getting oilier.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Maybelline-Expert Wear Eyeshadow Charcoal Smokes

I bought two of these. One in charcoal smokes and the other in lavender smokes. The reason I wouldn't buy these again is because they're too glittery; the glitter would travel down from my eyes to my cheeks. That reminded me of little girl makeup which is not so cool when you're 20 years old.
I was so unhappy with this product. The formula clumps really easily and flakes, and is also a little wet. Reading some good reviews on the non-waterproof one, I might try that.
I decided to try this mascara because on the commercial it said it wouldn't flake and I've had problems with flaking mascaras in the past. So needless to say it did flake, although it did give my lashes a nice thick full look. I wouldn't buy it again though.

I like Neutrogena Clean Lash Tint alot better. This mascara seems to clump easily and be sort of goopy. Maybe I just put too much on the brush and went over my lashes too much. Yeah it does give you a natural look, but I overall prefer the clean lash tint more.
