i wanted to try a new scent (i originally use berry kiss) and got this. this really doesn't smell that great. in a way, it also smells like cigars. gross! the smell is also cheappp.
i had high expectations for this product b/c of all the good reviews i've read on here. i guess my expectations were too high. this mascara CLUMPS. i have to get a towel and swipe the brush with a few times to get a nice, clean, natural look. not only this mascara clump, it SMUDGES. and the softness, i've tried MANY mascaras that make my lashes softer than this. i'm sooooo not buying this again. i'm VERY dissapointed.
Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer

don't buy this. this is crap. i'm telling you - don't waste ur money.
when i applied this at first, there was NO coverage. but then i was like, "wait, maybe this is buildable." i added layers of this on my skin, and i actually got light to medium coverage from it. it didn't cake on my skin, it didn't emphasize my flaws, covered SOME redness, & definitely evened out my skin tone. i looked at the reviews that gave this product only 1 to 2 stars saying that this product didn't provide any coverage. WELL, this is BUILDABLE people! oh, and the moisturizing part is fantastic! the scent is also light. this does NOT cover acne scars AT ALL and if you have deep pores, this will emphasize them. UPDATE: This CLOGS PORES! Gross!
bleh! too creamy, too thick. when i apply it on my lips, it just sits there. and when the stuff gets in my mouth, the taste is aweful! do not waste your money.
This mascara is CRAP. I have thin, straight lashes, and I was hoping that this mascara would curl them. Man, what a waste of money. This does NOT curl. It CLUMPS HORRIBLY. Bleh, it's crap.
okay, whoa! whoever posted that picture up on actually CAKED ON mascara on her lashes. with this mascara, you will not get that spidery, clumpy look (UNLESS you cake the product on your lashes). it doesn't add a lot of volume, but it does add a little thickness. it doesn't clump. it doesn't flake. the one thing that is preventing me from purchasing this mascara again is that it doesn't give that much of an oomph! to your lashes. if you're aiming for that natural, no-clump, no-flake look, then this is the mascara for you. :o)
This mascara is CRAP. It has to be one of the worst I've tried, with Maybelline's Great Lash NUMBER #1. It said it doesn't flake, smudge, and clump - but DON'T be fooled by the product's description. It's only good for the first few tries; after that, it's crap. It's just globby, clumpy, smudging junk. It smudges and clumps HORRIBLY. Don't waste your money on this.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

The product itself is great. This by far is the only pressed powder that I have tried that keeps my face shine-free. I am a makeup junkie, so I have tried a lot of products, including pressed powders. This gives your face a soft feel and a fresh look. The reason why I give this product 3 stars is due to its VERY limited color selection. I knew that the lightest shade would be too light for me and that the second lightest shade would be too dark. I have light skin so I bought the lightest one. I put it on and it made me look pale, too pale. I guess the lightest shade goes well with those who have porcelain skin - which I do not have. If only this product had a wider color selection, I would buy it again. =/ A WIDER SELECTION OF COLORS please!
UPDATE: this product is CRAP. this product isn't smart. the only thing it can do is change into your shade and give a little coverage. other than that, it doesn't cover ANY redness or blemishes. if you have flaky skin, DO NOT get this product! it will totally make it show. it does not control oil, not even for one hour. (i have combination skin.) seriously? this product is NOT worth $10-$15, not even $7. it's a waste of money.
It gives my lashes a nice, clean look and it doesn't clump! Which is great. But, it doesn't curl my lashes as I expected it to. Failure. But still, this is good mascara. Great for length and definition! The reason why I give this 3 stars is because it smudges horribly!
The only thing I liked about this product was the scent. It smelled like citrus! Other than that, it did give volume and length... but it was also clumpy. A bit too clumpy. And flaky. Really flaky.
I don't know why people rave about it. I don't see how it's an award-winning product. I've tried TONS of mascaras, and this is the WORST. It's way too clumpy. It takes way too long to dry. There's no change in my lashes with first coating. Ugh, this product is bad.
It doesn't smudge but it does a fade a bit, but then again, what liner doesn't? I give this a three because it doesn't glide on smoothly. There is some tugging when I apply it. And because it doesn't glide on very smoothly, I don't have complete control with it. I'm not purchasing this product again.
I got this as a gift. This mascara gives my lashes a nice, clean look. It doesn't clump, which is definitely a plus! It's also buildable, which is also great. I've tried TONS of mascaras, and this is a GREAT mascara. UPDATE: 5 stars to 3.5 stars. It smudges and it doesn't give that much volume to my lashes.
