nice color, easy to appy, slightly streaky. If this nail polish was cheaper i would say go for it, but at $18, TOTALLY not worth it. My $2 wet & wild polishes are much better than this and they have an identical red. Not awful, just not worth it.
AMAZING DRY SHAMPOO! I've tried a couple others (tresseme=AWFUL, lush=decent) but this is my favorite. I feel confident going out with 2nd or 3rd day hair with this, i don't mind the scent at all. You do need to work it into your hair pretty well though but I don't mind. Will def. repurchase.
i am EXTREMELY impressed with this line. I own "on a trip" (light purple) and now "i red a good book" (true red) and they're fantastic. the formula is just as good as my essie polishes, but it wears longer. the brush is perfect and glides on effortlessly. only complaint is that the color selection is pretty limited, and my drugstore never has all of the colors available. bummer :( You could definately get away with only 1 coat, but 2 coats and it's PERFECT! Very impressed wet & wild!
the few mac products i've used have been amazing, and cheaper than similar products at sephora (concealer, fix+, cleanse off oil) So i thought the bronzer would be pretty good, but the pigmentation is awful! had to swirl my brush like crazy to get any color, which I didn't think was worth it. After just a few uses, the powder looked like it hardened strangely. returned and got hoola by benefit which I LOVE
Amazing kit! I've been wanting to try benefits cheek stains and I was looking for a new bronzer..i didn't think i'd really ever use the eyeshadow or foundation faker. I LOVE hoola bronzer (there's so much and it's so pigmented that you barely use any) and the foundation faker is actually quite amazing too. Eyeshadows are really good, and i like that they're nice, neutral colors. Overall I'm REALLY happy I was able to get this. I only wish the products weren't stuck in the big box, I wish they could all be removed. But oh well. Highly recommend!
great cream eyeshadow. seriously doesn't crease (even without a primer). I like the gold, but I wish there was a better color selection (similar to mac paint pots)...every color in maybelline are shimmery/glittery, even the white. This could be a great base.
I can't say enough good things about the Clarisonic. It makes my skin feel so smooth and even after using a makeup remover, this gets any traces left over of makeup. I use it every night but sometimes I'll use it twice a day (I love that I can use it in the shower). Totally worth it. I usually buy a new head for it every 4-5 months and I don't notice any difference. I'm very excited to try the new acne brush. LOVE THE CLARISONIC.

color is quite pigmented, but way too much fallout. I like to use this over black eyeliner to smudge it out and it looks nice. The packaging is nice. don't think i could recommend this to anyone, and I highly doubt i'll ever run out (i use it every now and then, everytime forgetting how much of a mess it makes, because it really does look nice with my blue eyes)

absolutely zero color payoff. it's very powdery but no color actually shows up, even when using a primer. glad I only payed $3 for this. strange though how other elf singles are so much better
best nail polish i have used, hands down. I only buy drugstore polish because it goes bad before the bottle is used up anyway. Revlon was on sale so i bought buttercup (the yellow one) and a topcoat (not the colorstay top coat). I bought the yellow for a special ocasion, and now I wear it all the time! With 2 coats, it's completely opaque, and lasts the longest out of any polishes i have (at least 5 days without chipping). The next time I want nail polish, I'm going with revlon! to what other people have said- yes the texture is weird on the first coat, it's a little hard to work with, but the second coat make it look perfect. this polish definitely needs 2 coats and it looks perfect!
this is a really great product from revlon. i have very oily skin, acne prone skin but i don't like my foundation to cover much, just even. so i like it to look natural, which the original colorstay does not, plus it broke me out. I was hoping to love this and it wouldn't break me out, well i do love it, but it does break me out. it looks so natural and really keeps me shine free throughout the day, which is very hard to find at the drugstore. for anyone that isn't acne prone but wants natural flawless skin, I would definately give this a try.
Liquid -Make Up For Ever - Mat Velvet PLUS Matifying Foundation

i really wanted to love this product. the color matched my skin and i figured out that it looked most natural when i applied it with my fingers only where i needed it. But i still got really oily a few hours later, and It extremely broke me out...after 4 cystic pimples later (which I haven't gotten in a few years), this went back to sephora :(
Love this lipgloss..so much that this is probably the first lipgloss that i've ever finished before. I definitely feel like it plumps my lips, Especially if i put it on before bed, i wake up with beautifully plump lips. So disappointed that it was discontinued- any suggestions on a dupe ??
Lip Gloss -Flirt - Plushious Liquid Velvet Lipcolor

love this lipgloss. it's very sheer, but not sticky and it makes my lips feel very soft. I got the color Silk Slip, which is a baby pink, in the tube it looks glittery but on my lips it just looks pink. my lips are naturally a rasperry color, so it's rare that a pale color will look natural on my lips, but this makes my lips look light pink. It lasts a few hours but i don't mind re-applying if needed.just remember that the color is very sheer.
This is my go-to gloss right now. I love it. For $1 it plumps my lips without making them look too done up. I love the clear side to use by itself. I have it in the color "Peach Passion" which is a cute pink which is pretty pigmented. I only gave it 4 lippys because it's a tad sticky. But if you put chapstick (i like to use vaseline) under it, it's not sticky at all. Definitely worth the dollar, and I'm going out to pick up another one from target.
