Lots of mixed reviews but I love it. When you apply it (and the brush is amazing by the way, learn how to use it!) You have to vibrate it back and forth at the base of the lash to build thickness and then pull straight out through your lashes. The wetness is great because you can keep going over and over your lashes without clumping and it dries fast. Note the shape of the brush. The flat side is to build, the big brush side is to comb through.You have to use it correctly. i also like how the tip catches the baby lashes on the lower lids. I don't know why people would not like this mascara.
My husband got this for me for V-day and I love it. It's vibrant, fresh, fruity, girly and makes me feel like I just walked through a veil of sparkling diamonds and took a walk in a meadow of fresh grass and orange trees. It's miraculous.
Well the pros are that it does not smudge and does not flake. You'd have to have some pretty nice lashes to start with though because it's thin in consistency. I have great lashes from using Careprost, so it works for me. It's very black also which I love. I used Blinc, another tube like mascara and it was sticky as in my upper/lower lashes would meld together sometimes. This one does not do that. It goes on smooth. It works! I used it ONE day and love it.
This is by far the best hairspray I ever used in my life. You need just a few spritzes and it holds ALL DAY. It's good for the environment and I no longer have to leave the room from hairspray fumes because it's all natural. This is the best new product of 2012!
It came with an eye kit but there is nothing special about it. It did nothing to enhance,build or lengthen my lashes. I thought maybe I'd use it on the lower lashes but with this mascara they look non existent! I have thin lashes and need some volume so this was NOT for me. I liked the shadow/liner/primer that came with the kit though.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Deep Cleansing Cream with Soap Bark and Chamomile

I love this stuff! I wanted something organic with no chemicals and this is the perfect face wash. It doesn't lather (so it never drips into my eyes), but goes on like a thick cream. I use it in the shower with my clarisonic and the aroma is that of peppermint and banana taffy- smells luxurious and makes my skin tingle. A great cleanser overall- I'm almost done with my first tube and plan to repurchase!
I'm on my 2nd tube of this! I love the color. It's the perfect shade, not too dark or too harsh. I can wear any lipgloss over it and it always looks stunning. I rarely love a shade enough to buy it more than once, this is the ONLY one I have done that with. It's perfect!
Bronzers -Bare Escentuals - Faux Tan all-over face color

This is AMAZING!! I love it so much I want to stock up for LIFE. I have tried every self tanner that would make me orange or give me pimples. Bronzers were a hit or miss. This stuff gives me a fresh-from-the-beach glow and a nice smooth face. It wears perfectly over my foundation and concealer. No caking at all! I can reapply later in the day if need be, but the color lasts all day long. The day after I got it a co-worker said "You look great today, did you get a tan?" Plus, this is GOOD for your skin with no harsh chemicals. Buy this and put an end to your self tanning disasters.
I love lancome mascaras and rotate between definicils and hypnose, so I thought I'd try this new one. I really didn't like it. There isn't ONE good thing to say. I didn't know it was possible for a mascara to make me look like I had less lashes! It drooped so much that I looked like a lashless turtle within an hour. Also, my eyes even began to itch around the lash line, so this formula must contain some really different ingredients than the other lancome ones. I hope to return it -- I won't even give it a 2nd chance.
Hmmm...If you are going to use this as your regular mascara, it's honestly not that great. Over-hyped and under delivered. Not much volume or length. I don't use it for that though. I apply my regular mascara (MUF lash fibers base and either Voluminous or Lancome), then I TOP it off with a coat of this stuff. I use it as a sealer. It doesn't smudge or wipe off so it protects the lashes I've created basically. When I remove- I use warm water to slide away the Fairydrop tubes and then use mascara remover for the rest. Kind of a pain- but I know if I use this stuff as my final step my lashes will maintain their curl and fullness all day. I'm still not certain if I will repurchase this. I may try another tubing mascara that really does thicken and lengthen. I'll update if I find a better one! ***Eh. I am editing my review a month later. This stuff made my lashes fall out and I was very sad about it. This mascara is in the trash now :(
Lip Gloss -Lancome - Color Fever Gloss - Sunbaked Coral

Love this! It is the perfect color and goes with any make-up/lipstick colors. I am addicted to this stuff. Could there be a more perfect shade for summer? The glisten lasts hours and it's quick to reapply. I think this is the best lip gloss I ever owned, the only thing that would improve it is if it was a plumper :)
I wanted so badly to love this! I really did! It was a fail to me though. I can't explain how bad it made my skin look :( I tried spritzing just one spray far away and still my skin turned an oily mess. I just don't get it. I guess my skin is different than everyone elses. I also got raised bumps on my face so it must be a pore clogger as well. Yes, it felt refreshing and had a nice smell. That's it. I am returning this. Anyone know of better setting sprays?
Treatments -Clinique - Pore Refining Solutions Correcting Serum

I really love this product. I have used it for 3 weeks now and it seems to be working. I really want to continue using this, although it is a bit expensive, which saddens me. The bottle is too tiny. Will I buy it again? Yes. Will I feel guilty for spending the money? Yes. Will I love my skin? Yes. Ugh, the price of beauty.... **Update 5 months later: I still have not used up the bottle! They pack A LOT of serum into the tiny container which I'm so happy about. This works so well that I bought another of these 2 months in thinking it wouldn't last that long and I loved the pore shrinkage. My skin has NEVER looked so smooth and even. I look at old pictures before I used this product and can REALLY see a huge difference in my skin. Whoever created this product: You are a genius :)
I thought I'd give this a try and I have to say, it's a really great mascara! It goes on smooth, builds up well, and creates a dramatic look. The only slight downfall is that it did seem to rub off a bit on my under eye skin and I had to wipe it off a couple of times during the day. I think I'll try doing a second coat in a waterproof mascara over this one to prevent that from happening. For the money though? This mascara is great!
I can easily say that this is the worst shampoo I have ever put on my hair. There are no words really. The texture was horrible. It didn't smell good and it did not "clean" my hair, it spun my strands into brittle straw actually. Horrid to say the least. I cannot believe someone is selling this and calling it shampoo, it almost seemed like a joke was being played on me. DO NOT BUY.
