This clear mascara is absolutely awesome for using as a brow gel. It stayed on for the whole day until I took all my makeup off at the end of the day. It's also a really great mascara that gives you a natural look, if used alone.

I don't know why there are so many neg. comments but after just one use, I saw an improvement. Before, I had a few fine lines that were really visible. The lines haven't disappeared, but they're less visible. I would probably purchase this again because of how well it works.
I put this on before I go to bed and in the morning, my lips are really soft and moisturized. I also like how it is SPF 15, so it's suitable for the summer and the winter. I recommend this to people with dry, chapped lips and don't like to reapply their lip balm. It's really convenient and does what it promises - it moisturizes for up to 8 hours. The only thing that makes me consider not repurchasing it, is the price. But then again, it's kind of worth all the money.
I have this in Instinct because I loooove pink. It's actually colourless and really shiny. I love how shiny this lipgloss can get and I like how long it lasts. I jsut don't like the glitter in it. I think there's to much glitter and it's too childish, so this would be good for 7 year olds or something. I wouldn't buy this again because of all the glitter. Instead, if i really chose to purchase cheap lipgloss, I'm going to go for the Lipshine Lipgloss instead, which is basically the same thing except there aren't any sparkles.
I have this in Angel, which was a limited edition for Christmas a few years ago. I just came across it and it's like almost half done. I love how it's so cheap but works as well as some department store brands. I also love the packaging because when it's almost used up, you can roll it up and use up every bit of it. I'm definately going to get more.
A friend of mine recommended the whole Vichy Normaderm line so I decided to get it. I absolutely love this cleanser. After using it for about a week, I saw an improvement in my acne. I had occasional breakouts during the following weeks and now, I just have a few acne scars and a few bumps on my skin. But I think you have to use the whole line in order to see results. I use the Daily Exfoliating cleansing Gel followed by the Purifying Astingent Toner, the Active Anti-Imperfection Concentrate (for sudden breakouts) and the Drying Concealing Stick in the morning. I repeat the same process at night but I start off with the Deep Cleansing Gel instead of the exfoliator. It might not work for everyone because it's mainly for people with oily skin and are acne-prone. If you want to try it out, I would recommend the little gift bag (I'm not sure what it's called) that they have (it basically includes the whole line but in sample-sized containers) because it's pretty expensive for a drugstore brand.

I've heard a lot of good things about Burt's Bees products so I decided to buy this. I was really amazed by how well it worked when I first used it. After I used up half of it, I don't really like it anymore because I started using a Sally Hansen lotion. Anyways, I find it to be too oily and it takes a while for it to absorb into your skin. I also don't like the packaging. I think it's really unsanitary to just use your fingers and I would rather it be in a container with a pump. It's ridiculously expensive and I'm not going to purchase it again.
I agree with the previous posters, it's a beautiful shade of pink in the bottle, which is why I bought it. I found that it was pretty easy to apply during the first few applications. But it jsut got so streaky so I stopped using it. I don't know if it's the shade or whatever but it tended to thicken a lot faster compared to my other Revlon nail polishes. I'm definitely not going to purchase anymore milky shades from Revlon anymore.

I have it in Generous, which is a really light pinkish metallic shade but it jsut looks like silver when you actually paint it on. I think it dries pretty fast and it makes my nails grow faster. But it does tend to peel and chip pretty often so I would recommend a top coat. Other than that, it works well.

I just randomly came across this one day and decide to buy it because it just seemed so unbelievably amazing. I saw results in a few days just like it promised. I also love how easy it is to apply. I didn't have to spend a lot of time making sure I only put it on my nails because you're actually supposed to put it on your cuticles and under the tip of your nails. So this would be pretty good for people that are always in a rush or something. I did try it on my toes and it didn't quite work out. But it is good for your fingernails.
I absolutely love this lip gloss! It works really well for a drugstore brand. It's moisturizing, shiny, cheap..it's just so awesome. But the colour in the tube doesn't quite look the same when you put it on. It's a bit lighter, but it's similar. It also lasts for quite a while. I would say it would last for about a few hours. It also has amazing staying power. I had it on and then I took a shower and after I found that I could still see the lipgloss on. I would really recommend this if you want a good lipgloss because it practically works as well as some department store brands.
Oh, how I wish I haven't bought this lotion. The fact that it had shea and cocoa butter in it made me buy it. But it doesn't even work..and I bought the big bottle too. =( The 480 mL one. Booo..and I already used like half the bottle so I can't return it. =( Grrrr. Okay so this is like a temporary relief of dry hands. It lasts like probably only a few hours. I put this on before I went to bed and my hands were as dry as a desert when I woke up in the morning. But I do find that it does work well on my dry legs..I don't know why. So I would recommend this for dry legs but not hands. If you want a good lotion, try any Sally Hansen product..they're amazing. Their hand creams can work on your whole body.
