I bought this in Defiantly feline which is a light brown. I don't really like the packaging as it gives a little too much product on the brush. However, it is relatively easy to apply, doesn't take more than 30 secs to draw a perfect line, doesn't smudge, the color is vibrant and it truly last all day. It comes off relatively easily with makeup remover and by some rubbing action. However, I don't think that I will buy again, I will try all the other brands before. See picture for a better idea.
This is my ALL TIME mac shadow favorite (and I have quite a lot... over 34)!! Such a gorgeous color!! Not only it is my mac favorite but it is my favorite neutral eyeshadows among all other brands (and i've tried a lot). I am that hooked!
This is the BEST liner that I ever had. It is crazy expensive (for a liner) but really worth every penny. It works flawless (really, it is that EASY to apply), doesnt fade, nor flake, it is sweat proof, the tip of the liner is still in perfect shape after almost 6 months of usage and the product did not dry out of change texture.

I just love UD 24/7 pencils. All of them. I own over 10 of them and had to get Oil slick! I have to say that it doesn't replace zero as a black pencil. Pro : The sparkles pencils last longer than the regular ones (obviously because of the sparkles). Cons : But are also harder to remove, hard to get rid of all the sparkles. Overall, I don't think that I will buy again.

It looks very nice and does highlight/brighten the face. However, I don't think that I am a big fan of shimmers on my face, I barely use this. However, very nice product, doesnt look caky, fake or childish, easy to apply and last a long time.
Very nice blue. With some grey undertone, but very vibrant pigmented color. Blend easily, love the texture. Limited color, don't wait too long!

I am SOLD. Got dry skin? This is it, THE cream. Leaves my skin super smooth, do not leave greasy residue so I can put makeup on top and right away. Happy that I finally disregard the price and bought it.
EDIT : This is just not right for my skin color. I though it would shows a lot more on my skin, but it doesn't show as much as I would like. I am going to return it and change it for something darker. Would look awesome on someone with lighter or darker skin though, but not "medium".
This is the nicest pink color!! The picture (above) do not do it justice. it is a true pink, no peach or lavender there. Very pigmented, easy to put on (do not need a lot to show) gives a nice glow, awake look.
Styling Products -John Frieda - Frizz-Ease Dream Curls

I love this product! I have naturally wavy hair. I use a dab of this product on my hair (when almost dry or dry) and it looks like I've spend an hour doing my hair! Plus your hair stays manageable all day so you can play with your waves/curls as you want and they will stay put. Also gives a lot of shine. Use it everyday since I got it. It is best than many professional products I own.
Pale old-pink. I have it for a while now... the only way I like wearing it is french manucure way, with white tips on top. Otherwise it looks blah... just like if you were wearing nothing on your nails. I like my nailpolish to stand out, no matter if it is a neutral shade!
I love this color. So nice, so pigmented (see there : stay on for a few days -instead of one or two days- without chipping). It is a very dark (almost black) plum. PLUM and not violet nor purple. It is very chic and stands out.
I am disappointed of this one. I have it for over 2 months now and I don't like it. I don't like the color payoff, too pale, somehow uneven texture/color (and I wear primer AND painterly paint pot under). I usually LOVE veluxe pearl, wonder why the texture of this one is so bad. Could anyone tells me, does MAC has a nice pale pink shadow?! (I have Sweet lust too, same review)

This is a very good product. BUT Urban Decay potion is so much better. However Too Face packaging is so much better and it last forever.
This smells like a cheap vanilla perfume in my opinion. Where's the pink sugar name is coming from?! I expected so much better, specially after reading all the favorable reviews.
