This thing is loud, doesn't get near hot enough even on the hot setting. I wish I had saved the box to take it back. Please don't waste your money.
This stuff is awesome. I get up at omg thirty to be to work and I am lazy when it comes to mascara. I use this product to "define" my eyes. It works great although I find it fades out faster than I would like, but I am not complaining its easy to do and pretty cheap. Even with doing it regularly the product lasts a long time. I buy the blue black. It is pretty easy to do also.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof

Edit 2/2/11 I don't understand why this is waterproof and still seeps. I went from 4 to 2 lippies. I am surprised about this product actually. I have been a Shu Uemura Basic user for what seems like forever. But I hate paying that much for mascara that seems to dry out so fast. Anyway Full and Soft holds a curl! Not a 5 lippie hold, but a 4 lippie for sure. It is soft so it is easy to knock down the lashes if that makes sense. The only downside I can think of is that is seems to run under my eyes a bit, and I don't expect that from a waterproof. All in all makes lashes look great though!
I agree with previous viewer. There is barely any coverage at all. I assumed in the name of this product it had lasting power. It has none really. With or without a primer it is gone half way through the day (what there was of it to begin with). It is very watery too. Now I am using it to dilute another foundation just to use it up. Also comes off on clothes. I would not buy this again, I think this would be good for someone with good skin, but then why would you even need to bother would be my next thought.
I agree with previous reviewer this does go on dryish. I have found that a primer is necessary with it. As far as the damp sponge I use some MUFE F&B to dampen the sponge, that works well. The upside is this does last. It will transfer to clothing though, so watch that. The color selection with MAC is confusing at best. I got NW20 which is the lighest of the warm. Why I needed warm I don't know really but it seems to do the job of neutralizing redness. I am not used to using warm shades so the bottle seems dark, but does not look off in sunlight. Anyway I am rambling lol I think I would buy this again, unless something else comes along and catches my wallet :)~ The only downside is a primer is needed to smooth pores and make this go on better. All in all the best I have tried in a long time or that I can remember anyway :)
I have no idea what is wrong with me, but anything that rates good sucks for me :( I had high expectations for this. It went on okay, but there is no lasting power to it! Lacked both oil control and foundation lasting power. Did not do anything to "smooth" skin or pores. Totally NOT worth the price. Mary Kay oil control primer is just as good as this and way cheaper, but I will keep searching for my HG. Glad Sephora takes returns.

This is pretty much like any other heat serum you can buy. Hard to distribute, greasy at times, and doesn't seem to offer any protection from heat imo.
Conditioner -Aura - Cherry Almond Bark conditioner

First this stuff smells amazing! Unfortunately that is all the good I got from it. I need way more conditioning than this provides. I would say it is equal to any conditioner out there exept for the smell.

I must have got a bum bottle of this. This was not conditioning for me at all. Letting hair air dry it left it sticky and hard, and using with heat tools wasn't much better. Why is it so hard to find a condtioner that you leave in that has the same effects of one you rinse out?
Conditioner -Queen Helene - Cholesterol Hair Conditioning Cream

The girl at Sally's recommended this to me. UGH! This stuff is horrible! No benefit to it what so ever. My stylist said this is more for conditioning the scalp. Dunno. Would never buy again.
Treatments -Nexxus - Emergencee Strengthening Polymeric Reconstructor

I have been using this product every since I decided I needed a perm to make my life easier *sigh* I have colored (lightening) hair and after the perm fried it, I had to have a lot cut off, I didn't want to go short short so I use this instead. At first I didn't think it had any effect except to make my hair feel coarse. I then realized you have to use a really good conditioner afterward. Then after the next shampoo and deep conditioner it is awesome! I noticed it was getting in need of another treatment in about one month. So the price isn't too too steep. Worth a try if your in the same boat I am :)
Okay now I have used this product 4 times and I just can't figure out what the good reviews are all about. My hair is left dry and not at all conditioned. I reread the directions thinking this was a protein deal that needed a follow up conditioner! I thought one of my other products had gone bad too! The packaging is horrid and the results are terrible on my frizzy coarse hair. Will go back to Aussie Deeeep until something better comes along.
Edit: So I have to edit my original review and take off two lippies. This does not go on easily and has no lasting power even with primer. I will not repurchase :( So far I am loving this! Bought this based on reviews here (thank you) and it is way more natural looking than any other MM I have tried. I just finished up some Everyday Minerals, and I always felt like it gave me blackheads. So far LM seems to keep oil at bay fairly well. Will update at a later date if that changes. Price seems steep but a little goes a long way. :)
Treatments (Eye) -Boscia - Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment

Great moisturizing cream for day or night. Does not give me those little white bumps that some creams do. It doesn't offer any wrinkle reducing properties, but what actaully does? Overall a fantastic product. Would and have repurchased over and over.

I can't figure out what this product offers other than a great smell. I it somewhat comforting for a minute or two but does not offer long term moisturizing. And what is with the bottle? Way too much comes out. I would not repurchase. Smells great though.
