Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

Well, this is a first for me. I used the whole product. I find this shade to be easily flattering. I kept the tube in my pocket at work and would just swipe it on through the day. It felt moisturizing and the color ws sheer enough to be flattering. Not much for staying power, sure. But, I don't like the look of heavily pigmented, long lasting lipsticks. I find that for me, they can be very aging. I liked this shade the best out of all the lip butters that i have and I'll be picking another one up.

Well, I've had this palette for over a year now, just pulled it out and started using it the other day and I'm in love! Believe the hype..this is an awesome palette. I will say that I am tempted to break the darn lid off and throw it out!! It's very difficult to open and I always ruin the polish on my thumnail opening it...I suppose depotting would solve that problem, yes? :)

For my thick, dry and wavy hair this is a decent choice from the drugstore. I often buy this when I can't decide on anything else or can't afford a higher end shampoo. This leaves my hair feeling clean and moisturized without weighing it down. This might not work for those with fine or oily hair but for me, it's a drugstore staple!
This along with the conditioner made my hair so dry that I will not be repurchasing. It's a shame because it smells so good!

Yikes! Made my hair SO dry! Sure, it smells good...if you like coconut scented straw! Will not be buying again.
I LOVE the color of this gloss but for me, the texture leaves much to be desired. I find it to be just too slippery causing bleeding. I've also noticed that it seperates quite badly in the tube. I love the color and I will finish the tube...but I wont repurchase.

Oh yes..this stuff applies smoothly, lasts all day , is the blackest black there is and super cheap. But! This product did something really weird to my brushes(eco tools synthetic angled brush)it was almost inpossible to wash out and left the bristles stuck together and weird after several washes. The time spent washing over and over and the money spent on the ridiculous amount of cleanser it takes everytime makes this product less worth it for me. I'd rather just pay more money for a fluidline and save myself some time!
This mascara does a great job of defining lashes without leaving clumps. It's not the best ever for volume, but you can't have it all. Wahes off easily and does not irritate my eyes. My only complaint is that sometimes it flakes so badly I find little black flakes all over the lenses of my glasses! For that reason I would not purchase this mascara again.
Not bad! I like this foundation. I find it leaves a nice sheer coverage for my dry skin. I'm starting to see some wrinkles and texture changes in my skin and a coverage that is too heavy can magnify those imperfections. I do like to use a little powder to set it, as it can leave me looking a little greasy a few hours after application...but over all I've been very happy with it. If it had a pump it would be almost perfect for me in the summertime.

Well, I liked this product until the top broke off and exploded all over my makeup bag! I loved the way it felt..almost like a lipbalm and the color and the taste were pleasant...but I just can't get past the flimsy packaging!
I loved this product! I have never had an easier at home application of haircolor. No drips, the smell isn't too bad and you get enough product(I usually have to buy two boxes of other brands to cover my shoulder length hair) After using this product, my hair came out super shiny and the exact color I wanted..and this brings me to some of the negatives of this product. I agree with the others here on two points. One: My hair did feel dryer than normal after using this..fortunatley I colored two days before I was scheduled for a trim with my hairdresser so a touch up cut fixed that(I think I'm going to start doing this everytime I color!) and Two: yes!! The name/color shown on the box bear no resemblance to what color result you will have! I dye my hair dark brown/black so I chose the darkbrown /black shade(I'm sorry I cannot recall the color number!) The color shown on the box I chose looked like a medium auburn brown. But, being familiar with the boxed hairdye rule(shade will come out two shades darker than what's shown on the box)I brought it home, colored and ended up with a soft black shade which is exactly what I wanted. Hopefully John Frieda can work on this because I think it's a great product. It covered my few grays, left me with even shiny color and two weeks later hasn't faded. I will buy again!
Just a quick comment about Stila lipglazes. Yes, they provide a beautiful shine and they smell wonderful but I have to say, this lipgloss went rancid on me faster than any I've ever owned! It went so bad so fast that it was unwearable. And at the price I paid that is just not acceptable. I love stila eyeshadows but I will never purchase another lipglaze.
I use this stuff to remove heavy eye make-up. It's cheap, works like a charm without irritating my skin or eyes and leaves my aging dry skin moisturized. I love it for that..I bought it awhile back and I just wasn't using it and then I got the idea to use it for this purpose. At under five dollars for a huge tub..I'll be buying again!
This is one of many blushes I own and one of the few that actually has a dip in it from use. My HG go to blush almost every day. On my skintone(pale olive)it creates a nice natural looking buildable flush without a whole lot of effort. I am a blush addict and I will always purchase the blushes that catch my eye..but this might just be the only one I actually use on a regular basis!
This mascara can be hard to work with for sure. If you aren't careful you can get some ungodly clumping. But wow! Does this stuff ever make my lashes look insanely long and volumized! I only use this when I have the time to apply it. It's not a mascara for a hurried morning. On those days I grab my plushlash. I know that many people don't enjoy MAC mascaras..but I like them. They are the only ones that don't flake on me. I like the packaging too. These giant, brightly colored mascara tubes that we see everywhere these days just don't appeal to me.
