Lipstick -Avon - Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick

I don't mind that minty sensation, it's actually quite nice. What I do mind is the lack of presence on my lips. This does nothing - it barely shows. I probably like that sensation bc it's one sign of what I bought. I have Naked Truth; a barely there pink shade. I wanted something "Apricot Glow" but it was so orange I backed of.
this is probably the worst mascara I have ever used. I got it as a gift, as I wouldn't buy this ever. pros: the brush is always clean; it takes on just enough product; it also stayed intact (it didn't brake like the new plastic brushes do) cons: lashes get sticky and they group together. (absolutely no separation). they also stick out in all crazy directions. no volume; no length; no thickening clumps. impossible to remove (I tried every product; I still wake up in the morning dark around the eyes).
it's not the worst thing I've tried, but for some reason I expected more more from this product. first, I expected it to "not dry" as it says so on the tube. guess what? my nose peels off, and the skin around my eyes has more wrinkles than I knew I had - while my forehad AND my nose are very, very shiny. it seems to have medium coverage, but it dissapears from my skin after a couple of hours. I'm not sure what the 'Anti-Imperfections" means but I know I've never noticed my pores before I used this product. It somehow makes them stand-out. Sure, a bit of powder would make my skin look smooth again, and makes even this product last a few hours, but it makes my skin so dry that any powder put 20 more years on me. I don'y understand why the great reviews. This thing made me think, for the first time, gee, I'm 31, guess I'm old, I'm supossed to look like this. Except I look younger and better without it. Wasted money and hopes. Oh, the package: it's a plastic tube and many times it just won't come out. it got worse over time (I used this for a quite a while, untill I realised it wan't my age). I have to stick a needle in the tube anx mix the foundation so it will come out.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Skin-So-Soft Hair-Minimizing Lotion

I agree, the effect in the hair growth is not amazing, but it is there - IF you use it everyday and if you wax. the texture is greasy and sticky, but if you manage to get over that, it is the most moisturizing body-cream ever! it takes like 10 to 15 minutes to sink in, but the feel is amazing. it has the most amazing effect on hands - like no other handcream I ever used. the one big minus for me is that sticky/greasy feel. but other than that, it's great as moisture. and if you are disciplined enough to use it every night, you will also notice improvement in the hairgrowth department (again; not if you shave)
I don't get it. Why do they call this make-up? This is just a powder with a colour that looks artificial, it doesn't blend, it doesn't set in, it doesn't do anything. Yes, sure, if I pick it up with my finger and put a bunch of it on a spot, it does cover - but you can also see the powder. that's all it does - it looks like powder put on my face. The things I could've done with that 10$!
Foundations -Max Factor - MAX FACTOR LASTING PERFORMANCE

I bought this one after reading the reviews here. I don't understand why there is such difference, but mine is very low quality. no coverage, "fair" is a very unnatural white (of course, the sample I tried wasn't like this at all); it dries out my face... all in all... a waste of money, time, and trust! these people at max factor...why do they think I wanted a foundation? this product is absolutely pointless!
