i will start off by saying that i have tried around 10 colors that were similar to this one... and this one is the absolute best by far. It's very very pigmented, soft, and blendable. Phloof! on my fair skin, is a frosty white/beige/light light pink color. I'm sure most people would use it as a highlight color- but i find it to be much too frosty for most of the looks i do. I find that it looks great in the inner corner to help brighten. I have also used in on the lid with Expensive Pink lightly in the crease and it looks great! One of my favorite MAC shadows for sure!

wow. this is a miracle in a bottle. 1 stoke gives you the blackest line and it dries super quick, once it dries, its set there all day long-despite this it comes off with makeup remover really easily. This is the 1st liquid liner i have ever used and let me tell you- i will never go back to cream or pencil eyeliner again.
ive been on the search for a bodywash i can use on my arms (very very dry eczema) and this is it! it works well and doesnt dry out my arms or the rest of my body. the only thing i could say is the scent could be better.

let my start by saying that i did not buy this to use it as a volumizing product. i simply wanted a medium hold hairspray. let me say- this stuff is great! it gives just enough hold without being overly stiff or sticky. i use it on my bangs to keep them in place throughout the day. The packaging is really cute- this comes in a sleek tangerine colored bottle. AND it smells divine, it has a nice (non chemically) fruity smell. i highly suggest it!
first off- i have semi-long, frizzy, colored, poofy, damaged, and dry hair (terrible, i know).. the first time i used this i was blown away by the results, it made my hair super soft, shiny, and made even the most split ends vanish. The next time i used it, a week later, i barely got any results, maybe its just me.

my bestfriend uses this product all the time. and it works great for her, so i decided to try it, to scrunch my hair, and it did NOTHING. it didnt bring out my natural waves, and didnt hold my style. not buying it again.

i got this for 10$ on sale, thank god i didnt pay full-price. it does NOTHING at all, nothing for frizz, nothing to make your hair shiny. i think it just sits in your hair and smells good.
wow. i love love love this. the texture is AMAZING- even better than MAC's. it lasts so long and is such a pretty- true lime green color.
wow. i bought this in a dollar store: OF ALL PLACES. im so impressed. it doesnt smudge, crease, or fade. i use these all the time.

i should have thought about this more before i went and purchased it. MISTAKE! if you spray it directly onto your hair it will make your hair shiny- too shiny. like you just poured olive oil on it. so, what i do is i spray it ONE time into my hands and work it through my hair, i still dont get great results, but its okay for the moment. this is not worth the money.
to start off- i have VERY dry hair, thats very damaged due to all sorts of flat irons and curling irons. i wanted this to moisturize it, but it didnt at all. i expected MORE moisture(nothing amazing) but i didnt even get that. my hair was still dry and even MORE frizzy. i used a half-dollar size amount and left it in for 3 minutes.. .nothing. but i will say it smells really good. like coconut. overall: if you want your hair to smell good- get this,..its all it is good for.
WOW! i cant rave enough about these things! #502 is EXACTLY like the color of the HIP duo (sassy)- (the side that looks like satin taupe) i layer this under that color and it makes the shadow last all day long. i love using these as colored bases or just as liners on my lower lash line. my only problem is that i think that the pencils are just TOO big.

i will start off by saying this color is GORGEOUS sort of a redish-plum color. i fell in love with it the moment i saw it. the texture is REALLY smooth- you need such a small amout of product to get color- so it will last you forever. i used this as an all over lid color with Satin Taupe blended into the crease. i used UDPP and.. IT CREASED and shifted- after one hour i had this pigment almost up to my eye brow ! what a shame. cause its such a great color.
this color is so beautiful- a medium shimmery green. it can be used in the crease or all over the lid. i do notice it shifts a little through the day.
i used this product before i ever read the reviews on it. within 3 weeks of using i was breaking out ALL over my face- and i thought it was just one of those "bad skin times" - i was wrong. i stopped using this and my skin cleared up within a week.
