after reading the reviews, i decided to give this mousse a try since im totally obsessed with volumizing products overall this is a pretty good mousse. its as good as tresemme volumizing mousse, it smells great, and its dirt cheap. it works a lot better than other more expensive products ive used like big sexy and sally hershberger..this leaves your hair with volume and softness...it's not a miracle product but it works pretty well...worth a try!

I had high hopes for this product and was very disappointed. Didnt really give signficant volume to my hair, and it made my hair feel sticky and weird. It says to spray it directly onto your hair but I found its better to spray some into your hands and then to put it on your hair. I've had better results with much cheaper volumizing products such as the the tresemme volumizing mousse. DONT waste your money on this overhyped product..you can find better products at a much cheaper price

As someone who's tried many different volumizing sprays/mousses/foams from big sexy to tresemme, alberto, got 2 b, dove (many many! LOL) this one's pretty good, not a miracle product but has worked better than anything i've been trying so far. I like that it's a spray so it doesn't build up in your hair. It's not sticky, but I find that you shouldnt spray it too close to the hair and dont spray too much or you ill get build up. It also workes better if you blow dry section by section with a roundbrush, and the smell is great too! So, although this product isn't super amazing, I would buy it again if I dont find anything better. and it sure works ten times better than big sexy hair!

I was pretty disappointed with this. I bought it in medium, and even with my natural tan, its a little too orange for me. also quite expensive 40$CDN, and doesn't differ much from other cheaper pharmacy brand tinted moisturizers I've used. Also the coverage is minimal. Im currently mixing this with a foundation I bought a while ago that was a bit too light, and the two mixed together goes on well, thank god my 40$ didnt go to complete waste. But i wouldnt buy this again

an associate at sephora recommended this product to me when i told her i was looking for a good foundation with full coverage...this foundation comes in many shades, im using "bisque" and it fits my skin tone exactly, also the coverage is good, my face looks pretty flawless ...however, i find that like most lancome products, the foundation formula is VERY dry, i have to use a moisturizer under this to make my face look less cakey, also its realllly expensive..almost 50$ here in canada...it gives good coverage, but i dont think its worth the price..

great moisturizer, smells great and makes my skin soft, also doesn't give me any break outs only small drawback is, if you put on too much it can make ur face look shiney and look like you have a layer of film on ur face, so you don't need put too much but overall i would highly recommend this, absolutely love the scent, and it makes a good base for make-up

I bought this because it was on sale, and i found that i was looking really tired in the morning from dark circles and puffy eyes (i'm a student). Well, the good thing is, after using this for about a week I have noticed a slight difference, my dark circles (are still there) but have lightened a bit, and the puffiness in my eyes is no longer there.....however, i find that if you use this product under concealer it makes your makeup cakeup and look flakey, i find that its better to apply this once a day, before you go to bed...also, its pretty expensive, it goes for about 25$ cdn (got it for 18.99 on sale). it comes in a little pot, however you don't need much anyways.. overall, i'd say it has made me eyes look slightly better but no signficant changes, i think i'll use this til its done, but i will likely be looking for another eye cream

this is probably one of the best nude lip shades out there...i've tried other nude shades in other brands like revlon, covergirl, and rimmel, but none of them are as good as this shade, it has a slight pinkish hue to it, but it looks really natural ...perfect for everday wear..i have pretty full lips so its hard to find shades that don't make my lips look huge, but the shade is just perfect..not too matte, or shiney..it has more of a glossy finish what i also love is that this lipstick is moisturizing which is a must for me because i usually have a problem with dry lips..and it doesnt dry my lips out as much as other lipsticks do, the texture feels glossy and soft on my lips. another plus is that its pretty cheap, you can usually find it on sale..i think the retail price here in canada is about 8$ CDN, but it often goes on sale for 3.99$ at my local pharmacy, so you can get a quality product without emptying out your wallet ..unfortunately, i only gave this product four lippies instead of five, because the biggest drawback of this lipstick is i find it doesn;t last long enough, it comes off my lips really easily when i eat, drink, so i have to reapply it constantly overall however, I still think this lipstick is worth it, havent found anything better since..highly recommended, and this nude shade would probably compliment most skin types

this was my first time buying high end foundation, and at first, i was really happy with it, but after a few days i my skin started to break out....it has been a week since i've been using it, and i now have little red itchy bumps on my cheeks..i was in denial that my foundation was the cause, but after reading reviews in here of girls who've had similar experiences, i now know for sure this stuff is runing my skin i'm so disappointed, first of all its pricey, and it's supposed to be healthy for the skin! i don't usually get pimples, and i've never had such a bad reaction to makeup before, and i've tried many different products.. needless to say, i will be returning this stuff to sephora, and now i am wondering if that was why it was on sale!!
i bought this at sephora, because vl's products were on sale..well, i have to say that it does cover up better than my usual maybelline coverstick...it gives a more natural coverup that does not look too cakey or harsh..the shade i used was amber...i was afraid it would be too dark, but it actually blends well with my skin.. the only drawback about this product is its lasting power, doesn't last all day, and also it doesn't cover up my dark circles amazingly like i hoped it would (i mean for its price, it should!) but then again i tried it the day after i had bad sleep so i'm gonna have to see what it looks like when i'm not so tired.. overall, it is a good product, but i don't think it's worth its price, and i might be searching for another concealer in the future

welll i have mixed reviews about this product..i tried the light ash brown color to hopefully lighten my medium brown hair that was previously dyed with nutrisse in truffle..it was on sale, and i havent used this in yrs so i decided to give it to try... well first of all, the appilcation is super super messy..thank god i put newspaper all over, because it was dripping everywhere, i found the mixture especially drippy for some reason. the smell is really strong too. its also good that i bought 2 boxes cuz one wasnt enough for my thick long hair i like that the waiting time is not long, only 20 minutes...color results? well darker than i expected, it was a light brown but my hair looks more like a deep brown, and im not sure why.. also left my hair feeling super dry..i used 2 conditioner packets, left it on for 2 minutes, and still left my hair pretty dry, i've had much better conditioners from other hair dyes on a positive note, belle color does give pretty natural results, i was afraid my hair would come out too orangey-ish, since i am vulnerable to brassiness (im asian). but no brassiness at all, even pulled out the red tones that were in my hair from the previous dye... i am expecting this hair dye not to have long staying power, but i will just have to see for myself overall, not really sure if i would buy again, maybe if it was dirt cheap on sale, but wouldnt be my first choice

this does work..leaves ur hair super soft...i blow dry my hair on a regualr basis, and after using this my hair definitely felt a lot softer, a little drop can do wonders., but really, don't use too much of it or it will weigh your hair down

cherrycheeks18 11/20/2008 11:37:00 PM
i was curious to try this because it was on sale, and i always wondered if these shine sprays worked, well it does! this is a great product if you wanna add some shine to your hair, and it comes in small bottle so you can carry it around with you...the only thing is, if you spray it too close to your hair, it will leave your hair feeling sticky and weird... so dont spray it too close! also, the size is convenient for carrying around, just wish it was a bit bigger..kinda pricey for its size!
ive been using this product forever! almost since i strarted using make-up as a teen. its a good quality liner for such a low price. this stuff doesn't smudge, stays on long, and is easy to remove ..i've tried other, more expensive eyeliners, and none of them were half as good as the NYC eyeliner. I strongly recommend this. although, the applicator tip may be difficult for those who aren't used to applying liquid eyeliner, but practice makes perfect..not sure about why others have said it flaked?? never has happened to me in the almost 10 years i've been using it.

i was a bit hesistant to buy this product after reading all the bad reviews but decided to give it a try, overall the hair dye wasnt too bad, didnt hate it, but didnt love it either...the best thing about this dye is that it smells great, better than any other hair dye i've used, and the conditioner left my hair really soft..also, i didnt have such a hard time washing it out, but the application was pretty messy... i used medium brown, which is foxy brown, and it turned out a little too dark which is why i rated this dye with only 3 lippies. i prefer the medium brown in garnier nutrisse which turns out a little lighter, anyways i probably will be sticking with nutrisse, i'll see what the color looks like after a few washes, if it lasts longer than nutrisse i may use it again
