hmm I'm undecided whether I should buy this again or not, but it seems like a decent mascara, but not worth the hype :/ It has this weird spoon brush, that imo loads WAY TOO MUCH on, and swamps my tiny asian lashes, which renders them poker straight, even with curling. i retain a little more curl if i turn the wand to the side and use the thin curled bit, it lets me control how much i put on more easily :L its not bad for volume, but seeing as its a volume mascara, it doesnt do much at all..length is decnet as well, but since my lashes arent all that short, i cant really tell... decent drug store mascara, but there are better out there
picked this up today, as it was 4 bucks off all covergirl, and this mascara was only 4.75 AUD, unbelievable!!! :D the only thing is, i picked a brown black not black by accident, and having naturally black asian lashes, i thought, FML. But having worn it, it does wonders for my lashes! they stay curled And SEPERATED. having thin straight asian lashes, this has done a pretty nice job :) and as i usually wear coloured contacts, the brown looks so nice and natural :) I would probably give it a 3.5/5, but since you can only write whole numbers, whatever :)

LOVE LOVE LOVE! it lasted a lot longer than I expected, more than my other favourite lipgloss - shine sensations maybelline in peach sorbet. Pretty shiny colour, tastes yummy, and lasts quite nicely! SOOOOOO moisturizing and scrumptious, cant wait to see what my boyfriend thinks of my shiny kissable lips :) I will definitely buy again! Also, matches my skin shade quite nicely, as my skin is very very pale, and sometimes glosses appear too strongly on my already naturally red lips. However this one really complements me! Another bonus :D
Oh wow this is a great eyeliner! I love it! The colour is pigmented, stays all day with minimal smudging or shadows under the eyes! I'm usually really unco with liquid eyeliner but this one was sooo easy to use! My one conplaint is that it's too expensive! For AUD$25 that's nearly the same price as Brands such as Estee Lauder and Chanel which I bought overseas....(my mascara and eyeliner were around AUD$33.... if this liner was cheaper I'd be buying it like nuts, my only complaint for this product is the price, too expensive for a drug store brand!
Wow this such a nice lipgloss! I have this one in peach sorbet and I think it's really great, smells good, not too sticky, color is soooo pretty! Also tastes pretty nice as well haha :) Perhaps it could be shinier, but then again I'm not that big a fan of super glossy lipglosses... The colour is really great for fair Asian skin, I have really really really fair Asian skin, and I always have problems looking for colors that flatter my pasty skin :L I'll probably buy this again if I can't find a nicer lip gloss for the same or cheaper price (Y)
I actually use this more for an eyebrow pencil cos its so soft. It seems to fade after a while..which annoyed me, after 4 - 5 hours, it was gone, like it had dissapeared. The texture of the pencil is smooth and nice to draw with. The colour is good to, but for the price, I'm sure other liners would be just as good. I would buy again because it makes such a nice and natural eyebrow pencil.

This is an amzing product, I love the way it moisturizes and keeps my skin supple! I am sad to say that I can no longer buy it as it was my favourite...Ive tried looking but nothing comes close to being as good as this one. The only minus is that it doenst keep my skin soft for a long time, barely a few hours. But it doesnt matter, I'd just reapply.
I ALWAYS buy this, it makes my skin feel like its glowing after I wash with it :) Smells nice, and as long as you do it gently, it works amazingly. I use it on my body as well, and it makes my skin feel like new again. Its pretty inexpensive as well, which is great.

Lovely scent, its so sweet and feminine :) The bottle is adorable, and the perfume stays on all day without fading or changing. Also complements deoderant. I rarely use perfume, so even though this one was pushing a little pricey, I'd still buy it again/
Great for an automatic eyeliner, as I usually HATE the retractable twistie ones. Pencils usually give better colour and texture. However, this product had a really really nice shade of black, and drew on smoothly without tugging on my eyelid. The built in smudger is really handy, I don't need to hunt around for a q-tip any more :D The formula is rich, and creamy feeling (if that made any sense). It is a little pricey, but I use eyeliner sparsely, so this will probably last me long enough for me to make my money worth while :)
I liked this mascara alot. On its own, it didn't make my lashes ALL that much thicker or longer, although there was some thickening and lengthening (but not by much). However, when I put it on top of a volume mascara, it gave me AMAZING length. My friends even asked if I had falsies on :) Its great cos it doesnt clump, but the formula is a little on the wet side, which doesnt hold curl (it makes my curled lashes go straight with one swipe). The wand thing is pretty great once you get the hang of it, but I only ever use the long bristles side, as I only ever use it coupled with another mascara. I would buy it again as its one of the cheapest mascaras I have used, and it gives a decent amount of length and volume, but no curl unfortunately.

well first up I think I would have given this product 3.5 lippies, as it holds curl extrememly well on my straight asian lashes. So far, it is the only mascara to hold a decent curl for me. My lashes are relatively long, black, but very sparse and thin, and this did nothing for me in terms of thickening. Lengthening was also very minimal. The brush was very easy to use though, and it didn't clump. Though the curl was good, I don't think I can afford to fork out the money to buy it, I am sure there are other brands that could potentially hold the same curl for a cheaper price :) If you have straight, thick lashes, you should give this one ago. Also, make sure to curl your lashes before applying :D
Great mascara for the price, though the brush is huge, but the bristles are short >> Does a half half job at lengthening and volume, but nothing too amazing. Doesn't clump, the formula is a nice consistency.
I love this mascara! it does what it says it should! Only problem is, its so expensive! I'm a poor school girl, can't afford to keep buying it :'( It's amazing, but I think for the price, other drug store mascaras for around AUD$15- $20 would do the same as Chanel does (not cheap at AUD$50) A mascara I really like that does the same job is 2000 calorie (maxfactor), although between these two, its a toss up between volume with the 2000 calorie, and length with the Chanel. Overall, amazing mascara, but for the price, I'd rather get something more affordable :)

Even though I haven't been using mascara for a long time, this is the absolute worse mascara I have tried. Though my mum swears by this, when I put it on, it just clumps like there's no tommorrow. Its disgusting. I don't know if its just the tube she got, or because its old, but its just a horrible, horrible mascara. And seriously, for the price, you could do so much better. DON'T BUY IT! BUY SOMETHING CHEAPER! ANY OTHER DRUG STORE BRAND WOULD WORK SO MUCH BETTER.
