Great idea! But missed the mark.(I used the light auburn) Pros: Goes on easy.A TON of prooduct ( I usually have to use two boxes). Inexpensive.Covers grays well. Shiney hair. Decent conditioner (2 packets), Cons: Hard to squeeze bottle. The color is MUCH darker than on the box. It is very drying. STINKS! I really like this idea but there are some kinks to work out. I need some highlights now, but the color is really pretty-just WAY to dark for me. The fomula is too drying. The colors are limited and two shades darker than the box. The bottle is hard to squeeze. If you could pick two shades up and have hair that can take a little abuse, it is worth a try.
Short shelf life but a really fantastic cheap mascara. I really like the brush and aside from the goopy and my lashes feeling sticky it really does make your lashes huge.It doesn't come off as easy as I like but it also doesn't smear during the day. If you are on a tight budget and need a good cheap mascara try this!
LOVE!!!!!!!!!!! This can give you spider lashes if not applied properly. Can also clump if you wait too long bw the primer and the mascara. That being said this is my WOW mascara. It makes my lashes thick and long and comes of in the shower with only water. I get compliments on how amazing my eyes look all of the time. I use the brown black bc my hair is red and it is nicely pigmented. Will buy again and again.
I actually ike the DE in the maroon tube the best. But I do like this mascara. The primer goes on nicely as does the mascara. I do not wait too long bw the primer and mascara as to avoid clumping. No spider lashes but nothing wow either. Just nicely seperated natural looking lashes. It comes off easily in the shower. As to growing my lashes? I will let you know after a month (week two here). If I want WOW lashes I go for the maroon tube of DE.
Meh......great brush, average mascara with decent coverage and nice deep color. Good one to keep in your purse for touch-ups.

I got this red one and a bright pink (which is extremely sheer and looks great with a nude lip pencil). The red I used with a light raisin lip pencil and it looked natural but better! These are not HG material but the texture is like a chapstick only lighter. Great packaging. Goes on smooth with no sticky residue after. The smell is light and slightly fruity/floral. And I got them a B1G1 for 5 bucks.
I have read these reviews and I am a bit confused. First let me say this is an intensely pigmented hair color. And the darker you go the more pigment you will get. Also if you use a 10 volume for deposit only? It will be darker because you are not opening the cuticle as much just coating it with color. Further if you are covering greys? Use one package of grey magic per tube of color, use a 30 volume creme developer and leave the product on for 45 mins. These colors run as true to any I have seen....perhaps a bit darker depending upon the developer used. If you want to use the dark browns? I'd suggest 1/3 of the brown solution and 2/3 of something lighter as the base. This is the best product I have used and leaves my hair shiney and lasts as long as you shampoo and condition properly. Hope this helps you MUA lovelies out there!! Oh I have used the Light copper blonde and the Dark Red Blonde and the Intense Red.....a little more of this one or that one depending upon the desired affect. And on my friends I have used the browns and one of the blondes...all fab!

Okay love the upside down bottles. You can get it all that way. Next I have THICK wavy colored 41yr old hair. I have to use alot of conditioner in addition to all the leave in stuff. Besides being the cheapest, this line is just as good as anything I have tried. ANYTHING. The smell is great and it cleans well and the conditioner conditions very well without weighing my hair down. Gotta try for the price folks.
My hair salon was doing makeovers with this product. She started to do the foundation and the concealer in this line...but eh. I dont use either ever. Blush, mascara, lippie for my everyday. I save real makeup for weekends. Anyhoo she said lets just try the mineral veil, I am a real freak about healthy skin so I was reluctant. But she assured me that it was not going to clog my pores. Long story but this is great on my combo skin, I mattes it out but does keep it glowy. I cannot complain and a little goes a LONG way if used correctly.

Great pink shade for summer and sheerish. Slanted applicator, nice thick gloss, best dollar gloss anywhere.
Impressed I must say! Two sided gloss, small and portable and a very nice range of colors, too. I got the mauve, a watermellon color and this odd gold/orangy/pink. The clear side is more of a pearl, but goes on very nice. The gloss color is a liquid lip, goes on slightly sheer and builds nicely. I LOVE these, minty tingle and smell, no REAL plumping but leaves my lips moisturised. DEF worth a BUCK!!!

I HATE CLICK PENS!!!!!!That being said, this is a great color, goes on sheer but very buildable. Gives that lovely fresh, dewy lip you see on TV. Seriously you cannot beat this price!
Old lady? Peeshaw.....It is not high floral or fruity or pink. It is also not classic (aka old lady) like no. 5 or white shoulders etc. It is soft, slightly powdery, base of light musk and maybe some sandalwood? Dunno, but it does last all day, is soft, creamy and feminine. It is a warm skin scent. Well, on ME anyway, I do know chemistry varies, but this SO works for me. Also not in your face but you can still smell it on your wrist at the end of the day. I got this on Ebay for a steal. I would love to layer this, winter or Summer.
Light clean, but too much water lily...boring overall.
