i thought this was pricy but i've had this bottle for a year and it still feels full, kinda have to mess with it a while before you get used to it, a little goes a long way!
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara

i love love loved how this made my lashes look with shu uemura eyelash curler and shiseido mascara base, it was so nice wet and glossy looking, no complaints! except maybe the price, since i'm a mascara junkie i probably won't buy again until i've tried all the new stuff.. good lengthening and voluming. i notice with dior mascaras they dry out fast though..
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Distinguish Mascara

i bought this at a closing department store which means = no returns, =( this is the first shiseido mascara i've been disappointed with. does nothing for me, maybe slight lengthening but that's about it. even with shiseido mascara base it just starts to clump together instead of thicken. will not buy again
4 lippies, i dont need to put too much for it to show up and i've had for months now and still looks like i have months left of use left! kinda pricey but good deal for nice color, slight shimmer and loads of product
the packaging drew me to this mascara. what a nice surprise, i can build and build with this mascara and it just looks better and better! as always.. heated shu uemura eyelash curler BEFORE only.. shiseido mascara base.. and couple coats of supernova during the day and a lot more for a night look. will probably go back but since im a junkie i will probably just keep trying new ones that keep coming out!
good lengthening, not much thickening, some shiseido mascara base does the trick! as for curling.. a heated shu uemura eye lash curler never fails.. doesn't flake. comes off easily with water, pretty good i've tried many many and may come back to this after i try givenchy's
i have stolen a glass bottle from my sister and used it without knowing what it really did. my hair was 100% more noticeably smoother. you need a license to buy it so i got the purple hydratherapie tubes. the cashier said that there was enough in one tube for two treatments. my hair is pretty long more then halfway down my back, and half a bottle on the "ponytail" part of my hair is more then enough. the results are fantastic! i have black hair, with bleached blonde highlights and this is the only treatment i've ever used that made my hair so soft and smooth. i have used just about any and every brand of "deep conditioner/treatment" in the market from redken, nexxus, biosilk etc etc and this is the only product with such dramatically smoothing results. this is comparable to how soft and smooth my hair is after using paul mitchell super skinny. love it. will buy again, the price is worth having such nice smooth hair!
I bought this last year at Victoria's Secret for some reason Sephora didn't have it yet. It was a shade too dark (Conchita) so I didn't touch it 'til I needed it this summer. After being on the shelf (and in my hot hot car) for so long it seperated into a red oily part and a nice creamy lotion. I mix both in my hand and apply to my face. If it's a dry day I mix it with some face lotion and it's great color that's not too greasy and covers my acne scars. Pretty good I'm sure it's even better when you first buy it :p
my sister bought this for me because i wanted a blue mascara to make my eyes less red looking. it doesn't look very blue on my lashes but i suspect that's because its not really coming off the brush well. when i put it on i dont see any difference except that it holds my curl and makes it a little bit longer but not as much as i'd like. i wouldnt buy it ever. not worth the price
I thought I had written a review on this before but I guess not. Overall it is a good product my friend introduced it to me be 7 years ago when we were in 8th grade. It makes my skin really pale and bright after I use it and sometimes shrinks pimples. I usually don't break out but I do have horrible horrible whiteheads that will never go away no matter what product I use on them so for the price I think it's ok.
a little goes a LONG way. it smells divine too. (i just read the other reviews and saw that someone else called it divine too!) not sure if i would pay full price for it but my sister bought it off ebay 2 years ago and we are still using it. we don't use it every day though just about once a week before going out.
i read all the greeeeeat reviews and went looking for it in every drug store. i should just stick to walmart they have everything! anyway, i dont notice any firming.. it is a bit runny and i haven't noticed my skin tone getting more even toned. i'm really disappointed maybe i got a bad bottle? other then that it is an good body moisturizer for 2 bucks. nice light scent, i don't see AHA or some special seaweed in the ingredients.. just "seaweed extract" maybe mine is a new formula? it must be good because my sister and brother in law keep stealing it and using it though i'll keep you guys updated
i bought this because my friend liked it. it was so small it hurt to put it on and it wasn't waterproof either. smudgey. waste of money plus it wasn't cheap for a drug store brand. i'll stick with my CD liner.

i couldn't find the tweezerman one so i bought this one at walmart. forgot what brand i think it's an orange package. anyway for 2 bucks it sure does remove a lot of stuff. i suspect there's an easier way that doesn't hurt your skin ..
i bought this on sale at sephora for maybe 5-10 bucks i don't remember. when i got it the product had seperated.. so its part oily party grainy all disgusting. well its not THAT bad, it does smell good i'm afraid to taste it just because it's so greasy.. but now its just sitting in my bathroom closet
