I am writing this review on behalf of my dad, who loves the african black soap! He has eczema pretty much all over and in spurts. This stuff keeps his skin clearer, seems to prevent bursts and makes you feel clean. The packaging is a clear plastic wrapper which is easy to open and makes it simple to store and place in the shower. The price at near $4.00 is worth it because the bar lasts a good couple months with daily use and is so effective :) He loves it and went out of his way to get it at walgreens which is not very close
If I remember correctly, I paid less than 8 bucks and i've had this for about two months and I'm lovin' everyday! I don't like that you twist the product out but it makes sense since it is rather soft which makes transferring to skin easy and a light touch is good enough :) I tend to use quite a lot and i'm not filling in that much but i think that has something to do with the softness again. I use brown and have very dark brown hairs that have pretty much no red and if I put too much 'out of line' it tends to appear a bit reddish brown but when blended well and lightly put on open areas is fine and a great match! Great for quick on the go but be careful anyways and don't be sloppy because it gets dark very fast!
It volumizes, lengthens, is quite black, and doesnt clump. But! My lashes dont look fabulous despite all of this because they wont curl or stay curled and end up looking very natural and BLAH. When you look at them from the angle of application they are stellar-yet that can't shine through without a curl working all the given magic. If this could hold the curl, I would try it again for sure! and I have long, thin and many lashes that just need oomph but perhaps i used too much product but it was not a major loss as it was a mini size :)

I LOVE THIS MASCARA :D It adds volume where I do not have it! Who wouldnt love that? It is a tad on the goopy side and my first package dried out in a couple months and as soon as it had started to it just did so rather quickly :/ I've had a couple bad lash days because of this being clumpy or i applied it too quickly and without wiping off the excess, thus causing an overload and malfunction of lash separation&sexiness. I will pick it up again but right now im trying the Max Volume Flash by Rimmel and it is sooo similar in texture, payoff, color and volumization.
For the crappy not long-lasting quality of the tip, the price is not so great :( I do like this product and i used it on the water line where it stayed for a few hours and to reapply was not a big deal. This is a thicker thing to hold than a normal liner and i liked the felt tip but it dried out after a couple months of daily use,. i also managed to use a lot of the product but i couldn't imagine getting this and then having it dry out on me if i choose to not use it for a while!
