I got this for like @2, I think and I never buy DS brand but I had a gut feeling this would be different. I dab it on and it reminds m,e of Laura Mercier's Mulberry Lip Stain I used to use. But this was a bit more moisturizing...This would be an HG backup from my Buttershine Apple Brandy..lasting and not too drying color on my tan- very tan skin.

Got this as a GWP, and I like it a lot. When my eyes are smokey, this a great lipstick that's not too drastic. Looks great on my tan skin.

Good for people with good skin and some scarring. I have adult acne and tried this for 3 days. Started to get acne cysts so I stopped using this asap. I don't use primer unless I have to, but to me the price was good but the product is bad for acne prone skin.
Again..why do I waste my time on drugstore brands...returning this to CVS..ugh. 5 coats to get the same results with my Shiseido Lifting Mascara...and my hand is numb now.

I have been using this for 3 weeks after a crazy reaction from Babor Hyol and now my face is amazing!! I have adult acne and large pores, this actually reduced the size of my pores after a week! ( I wear alot of foundation my pores aren't seeping out the makeup anymore) I want to try the eye capsules too, I have tried the peel that came along as a sample and that was great too as a jump start to the system. I was using Obagi before, and this seemed like a smaller, less invasive version of it. Plus it's not as expensive. I love Obagi but it was too much for a stay at home mom like me. I will continue to use this and repurchase.
I got this at CVS and it's the best on acne and pimples! I use this as a spot treatment under whatever products (moisturizing and face treatments) that I have. It shrinks and lessens my chin acne/pimples. Wish I knew about this in high school. Don't get this near your upper lip or mouth though, I did and was rinsing my mouth out profusely!
Sorry, wanted this one to work on my asian lashes, even with curling and bending over backwards...this did not work for me. Great formula, hard to use brush...Back to my HG Shiseido Lifting Mascara!
Tried this for a few days,and as much as I would love to love this, it didn't clean my skin thoroughly enough (makeup on)and I saw an increase of whiteheads.I also developed painful acne,which I haven't seen in 3 years. Plus, it's too much work to use.Thank God I only got samples...
I got this because my feet are so bad due to the fact that my feet don't sweat, I'm 39 weeks pregnant and it is winter. I tried this and put socks on, then an hour later..I went from lizard scaled feet to really smooth but still a bit scaley...so I went and got a pedi and got the callus remover/blade treatment. Then I went home and applied a nice layer of this plus socks.A day later, I have never had such smooth feet in my life. The only thing is, I think I'm going to have to do this everyday to maintain my smooth feet...

I am a NW35 and have a really hard time finding my shade. I use this in Tawny Beige, and I have tried them all, including Chanel,Shiseido and Urban DecayM although I really like cream to powders and full coverage foundies, this one is the best one for coverage and takes well in photos which is very important to me. I set it with my Chanel Pressed Powder in Dore (I think it is number 3) my skin looks so even. This also doesn't break me out and I don't usually use a primer. It has the consistency of Lancomes Teint Idole which is one of my favorites. I'm usually a Department store mu junkie,because I really prefer quality, but this is a very good foundie and I hope they never dc this!
I like this lip balm a lot. I usually use this for moisture and the hint of color on my tan/olive skin. I also use this under my Laura Mercier Stick Gloss for a bit of more color with the color Nude Lips. Ultimately I put this on about 30 minutes before I put on any lipstick or gloss to pre moisturize,except for my long wear lip glosses. My hg balm!

I think this item is very good for straightening with a bit of curl (think Kardashian sisters hair)and giving volume..ONLY if you have fine to medium coarse hair that is not curly. And you have to have layers. If you don't meet any of those criteria, then this iron isn't for you. I use this after drying my hair or the morning after and my hair is shiny and soft with a bit of body. If I want stick straight, I use my flat iron. If I want curls, I use my curling iron.If I want both I use this. It's easy to use, and quick. I have 2 kids and I have really thick hair...gets the job done in about 15 minutes.
Again, on a whim. I got this DS mascara, and it actually helped my asian lashes, lengthening little bit and thickening a bit after 3 coats! Forget that...and it irritated my eyes. I am sticking with my Shiseido Lifting Mascara...I am never buying DS Mascara ever again...except for Max Factor 2000 calorie WP. But I never see that anymore.
Why do I keep trying to compare DS mascaras to my Shiseido Lifting Mascara. This Mascara does nothing but coat your eyelashes. I have Asian lashes and we need a hail mary to get lush and long lashes. I am sticking with my Shiseido, with lengthens and holds the curl, plus no smudges!
I got a sample of this to see if it was worth it. It does remove the makeup, but it reminds me of Purity from Philosophy. I felt clean and a little too moisturized after using this, so I felt that I had to wash again. Not my cup of tea. I like the foamy cleaning washes. Nice for those barely made up days though..whenever that is.
