Prestige was the first eyeliner I ever tried with sucess. The pencil is soft which makes lining the eye really easy. I have the eyeliner in black, espresso and sepia (which is on the brown side). They are worth trying.
I discovered Wonderbase at the Monoprix in France. It is basically the a whole tube of white fibers like Bourjjois's coup de theatre. Just apply the white fibers on the eyelashes before you apply your mascara and then apply your regular mascara.You can really see a big difference in your lash length. I know that Maybelline in Europe is Gemey-Maybelline so there is a chance this is not sold in the US, but if you can find it- it is definetly worth trying.
I love the smell of this shampoo. I am not sure if it does much for hair color but my hair smells nice and is clean.
Pretty good mascara. I have passed the display for almost a year before I actually bought a tube of mascara. The mascara lengthens pretty well and lasts throughout the day. I am actually pretty pleased and will buy some more of the mascaras in the line to try them out. The price is pretty reasonable about 9 US dollars
If you want a good lip balm to soften your lips then Carmex is it. The smell is menthol which some people may not like but it is the best lip balm out there and cheap too. You can buy it in either a tube or pot.

I really like the balm. It has a faint sent and actually makes my lips tingle. Great chapped lip soother. Though I do wonder if using Evian water makes an actual difference.
I love the taste of Dr. Pepper soda and this balm reminds of the soda. I do not find it very moisturizing and balm has begun to get smushed by the cap. It is cheap balm and good for the money. Nice to use to just give your lips a swipe of flavor and a little bit (a very little bit) of shine.
Another winner from L'Occitane. Great Smell and makes my hands feel really soft. The cream leaves a subtle scent behind.

I have this in browns and it is a decent eyeshadow set. It is good for travelling because you do not have to deal with all the clutter. The browns are nice and the staying power is ok. I do not think I would buy this if I was in the States. The prices are higher than here in France and not worth it. But the dislay at the store is so cute. That is how Bourjois lures you!! I bought three eyeliners today from them. You see!!!
I seem to have this love/hate relationship with Bourjois. I tried the mascara and thought it was mediocore. It barely built up my lashes and I had to apply several coats to give my lashes some definition. I live in France and want to really love this brand but it does not work. Their eyeliners are pretty good so that is atleast something.
This product is really great. It is a spray your spray onto your hair to give it added shine and softness. It has citron and other vitamins. I have been using this for a couple of weeks already and I like the softness and shine it gives. All you do is spray it on wet or dry hair and style as usual.It does not add any smell to your hair.
I love the smell. L'Occitane has managed to put vanilla in a bottle. One of the best smelling perfumes. Very worth the price.

The scent is nice as well as the tin. This is not any better than vaseline or Labello. I would not buy it again.

I discovered this line in France. I bought a couple of the roll on lip glosses- one glitter with the taste of strawberries and one regular color tasting like chocolate. They both come in cute glass tubes with a roll on top. I have difficulty getting the gloss out that I find myself shaking the tube. They also make mascara in a tube which is decent. I don't think I would buy this line in the States but in Europe where it is much cheaer it is worth it.
What is the point of this? It is hard to blend and does not really do much. i have really dark eyelids and need to use coverup. I thought this would bypass that, but I was wrong. A waste of money. Not one of benefit's winners in my opinion. Maybe if they rethink the packaging, texture and consistency this could be good.
