This brush would be cool if they decided to included bristles on the TOP as well. Seriously what is with that? How is shaven bristles off the top helpful - it makes me require another mascara brush to get little lashes. I am using it the rest of the week because I paid for it. NOT going to buy this again. So many other mascaras can top this one.
Best natural day mascara that is affordable. Actually still works well beyond the first week of opening it. Not for nighttime.
My boyfriend hates every red lipstick I put on...but this one he likes! Enough said. Fav Red Lip (Applying red lips, if the texture of the lip stick is not easy, can be disastrous. I can actually apply this without error because of the ease. Love it!)
I can't believe how expensive Yankee is when some of their candles are like scratch and sniff. And that is if you are lucky. Beach wood has no throw like many others. Even if I have it right next to me in the tub with the bathroom door closed I cannot smell it. I have a smaller condo and I can't smell it. I can sort of smell it when I blow out the flame and the smoke...wait no that is just the smell of smoke. Pass on this one. Sad that I was ripped off.

Sniffed the whole mall looking to have a scent to alternate with burberry favorite'. I seriously sniffed over 50 bottles that day between Ulta and Macy's. I ended up at VS and found the winner. Was happy to find it in the smaller bottle (considering I want to alternate) and it is impossible to get through an average bottle as in when you are using more than one smell.... but 10 dollars vs 25 for regular size (when the larger is 8oz something ounces and this is 2 something) seems to be a bit of a rip. But for my purposes I don't want a large one because I actually want to get through the smell eventually with the assumption I can change out or continue later. I could never put a big one in my purse anyway. Boyfriend likes the smell, which is good. I noticed a lot of smells us girls like are NOT smells our mens like so its good to have their input on a review. (Burberry guys love..girls are hmm its ok I guess..but the mens purposely walk behind me so they can smell me on dates. Weeeird?
If you love a clean matte look that you can pair with a black eyeliner = winner winner chicken dinner on this one. This is also what JennaMarbles wears in a lot of her videos and for a daytime look.
I do continue to buy these but I wouldn't say they are a must to my skincare. Just a nice extra to have around. Does not remove eye makeup without having to use a lot. However, if i use another makeup remover and these after the fact, they always find some makeup that wasn't removed. I save money on these by cutting the pads in quarters. They have so much product on each pad that it a quarter of the pad is enough to pick up the left over muck on my face. Do not dry out face, I have combination skin.
I am not a mask gal, but saw this was always sold out on dermstore.com Tried it and wow! It comes in a tube now. My skin actually looks different (better) after I use this. The minty feeling gives a cooling sensation when it is on. Winner winner chicken dinner.

YEEES!!! I have straight flat hair. I am always looking to get some bump up in my roots. I've bought tons of expensive bs and was lastly using frederick volume mousse. I was hesitant to ditch the mouse for a liquid spray...figured how could this spray do better than the mousse which does ok, but read the reviews on here so gave it a go. I think I paid 3 bucks for this and got another item free from the brand at walgreens. Anyway, took this on vacation to ocean city where the humidity is high and my hair maintained with lift for many days and against humidity, on the beach, through the club, over night on my pillow. It always had enough hold to relift and vamp up again when you give it a messy toss with your fingers. I am still in shock. I am done looking for root lifter forever. I don't want more people to discover this, it is always sold out as is. Make sure to use a store locater to find this item in stock before assuming it will be at your store. I had to go to SEVEN stores before finding one that wasn't sold out.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - Ransom 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

Love to wear this with a neutral brown eye in the water line. Really brings out my hazel eyes, which is hard to do because I think hazel eyes like mine, green and brown, look like poop. So this makes them look more green. Win. These 24/7 pencils are not kidding. they are a b*tch to take off, even with a variety of makeup removers. I always have to dig my nail to scrape it out or a dry towel to sift it off. But that really shows you how great this stays on when you want it there! I would buy this again in the mini like I have, but probably not a normal sized pencil. Maybe.

Love it. Great for an every day fresh look with a black liner and mascara. The texture is nice and in comparison to Mac paint pots way easier to smooth out and evenly apply. Mac rubenesque has been compared as a similar dupe for this but that had much more of a red orange tone and this one is closer to a champagne like a soft stila kitten.
I've been sifting through tons of products to clear the stupid little bumps on my forehead. You know, the bumps that are not quite zits but make skin non smooth and really show when light is reflecting? A blog suggested this (even though it is for men) ...after investigating even more I found out a lot of women use this for hormone break outs or for what my problem is. I've been using these for 4 days and I already am seeing my forehead clear up. I actually can't believe it. The smell of the pads is a little wonky but it goes away after application. The pads also have a texture...I can take any other cleaning pad and not see the dirt that this one exfoliates out. Because this is so expensive I am taking the tip of cutting the pads in half (ITS PLENTY to do only half in the morning and half at night) You get a total of 45 pads in the jar. I've given it a 4 star seeing that I've started to see results, when results reach what I am hoping I will change it to a 5. Edit* Cleared up my fricken forehead that ive been battling the last year. Holy Grail. And in a short week right in time for my trip. WOW. so happy i finally found something that works. For reference I've already tried pevonia and clearsil rapid wash. I like them but they wouldnt get rid of the layer of dirt hanging under my skin. I needed something to sebum the toxins out. I realize that this hasn't been on makeupally yet probably because it says MEN on the product. Sometimes it seems that is where we need to search for the answer, I mean have you used mens razors? Amazing.
I am an idiot when it comes to nail polish application and this brush really helped me out. I love this color as much as I love OPI's 'You don't know Jacques"...they are those earthy colors with an undertone of purple or blue. This has been compared to OPI recycled but they are not the same color on. I won't repurchase because I've never used a whole nail polish bottle in my life, however I think it is worth buying if you can afford it. Looks great with bright color wardrobe OR blacks.
The only lipstick my boyfriend has complimented. discontinued. lasts forever so need to buy another. Some mac lipsticks are drying or patchy with my lips but this one is smooth and stays put
