Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Length Fiber Extensions

First impressions: Nice subtle length added. Formula quite dry. Day 2: Clumped, and couldnt catch my lower lashes properly. Day 3: I'm going back to Lash Stelletto (which I love). I don't love the brush, I don't like anything about this stuff. Definitely going back to Last Steletto or Falsies.

I REALLY like this gloss. As a non-makeup wearer, I've been trying more subtle makeup lately, this is going on the "use it all the time" list for sure! I don't LOVE the scent, but it is non-offencive. I generally go for unscented products, but this one is an exception to the rule. I find it lasts longer then any other gloss I've ever tried. I also found the plumping action pleasant - unlike the plumpers that contain Capsasin. It felt like a nice strong tingle that was quite nice actually. The tingle only lasts about 20-30 min, but the gloss stays put for a while. I did find my lips plumper, but not in the extreme. Mostly they just got a little fuller and seem to have filled in the wrinkles on my lips themselves - so they looked very smooth. I did notice today that during the time the tingling was going on I could actually see my heatbeat where I assume was a blood vessel in my lip, so it's definitely doing something! This is perfect for me, because i don't want my lips to look so big it looks like they got caught in a pool drain....
I have this in Pinot, and I love it! The colour stays on, but it light and the product feels good on the lips, colours nicely, and is just a very nice product.
This product works GREAT, and as for the neg. reviews - I would like to address some of them: Yes, the product does thicken after a while. Go get some polish thinner, any brand will do, but this company also makes the best thinner (called Restore). Yes, the indedient toluine is linked to birth defects, but only in large quantity. These warnings are there so that the product can be sold in the state of Califinia, which has very strick labeling laws. Unless you do your nails (or someone else's) 40 times a day, or if you DRINK the stuff, you're very unlikely to have a problem. That said, if you're pregnant - switch to a different product till after bary is born... No problem!! Pregnancy is temporary.

The only reason I think this has such a high rating is the packaging, which is super cute and I love it. The balm itself is not very nice, don't love the scent - it smells and tastes too synthetic for me (and considering it's supposed to be all natural, this is wierd). I don't think I'll buy this one again, going back to my Honey Burts Bees

I have retrofuturist, and I absolutely love it!! The colour lasts forever on me, and feels good to me - I don't like a really wet lipstick though. The packaging is cute, and different, like the product is, and I would not hesitate to buy again.
I bought Empress, Fairy Wings, and Cleopatra - but bought it with a promo freebie of Circus Girl, Shoe Addict, Lime Criminal and Primadonna. I have used each and every one of these dry - and all I can say is WOW. These are the best shadows I've ever had the opertunity of trying. They stay put on me all day (10 hours plus) and look equally fantastic when I was them off at night! I would buy these again, as I like the fact that what they say is what I got, however it's going to take me years to use up what I have now - so probably any future purchases would be new colours. They've done the work for me as fas as sampling and such, so for that I'd buy again, but would likely wait for a similar promotion, as I am somewhat cheap.
I LOVE this mascara!! i wear it every day, makes black liner unnessisary, wich means I can wear my favorite bright coloured liners. It does not clump or flake on me as others have suggested, it stays all day for me, and then comes off easy with my facewash at night. I have fairly thick, long, but uncurly natural lashes that are something of a light brown - this makes a huge difference, they seriously look fake, which is awesome! I can't compare to the origional lash steletto, as I did'nt buy it.
I have this one in purple pleather - and I really do like it! Unlike most other mattes I've tried, this does not dry instantly - but watch out, because it sure LOOKS dry! I had to re-do 3 nails after this discovery. Definitely need a good ridge filler with this one, or the rubberized base that ORLY makes would probably work well. Edit: I bought 2 more :) they're still amazing. I just wanted to add, contrary to what another reviewer says, the BOTTLES are NOT made of plastic, they are in fact frosted glass - as usual, treat your NP bottles nicely ladies!

I bought this one in Steel Grey. The wear was acceptable for me - as my nail polish rarely lasts more then 3 days. What I HATE - the brush. I will never again use this polish (actually bought a similar shade in OPI so I would'nt have to) entirely because of the flat brushes. I hope this trend in brushes goes away soon!
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo 6 Piece Brush Set

I adore these brushes!! Compared to the usual tools that have come with the makeup packging, it just does not even compare, and they have a similar or even better feel then the expencive ones from (insert favorite brand here). Also, they are great for hygene reasons - they're cheap enough to replace every year or so, rather then the expencive ones you want to make last forever.
I'm off buying the chemes in this line unfortunately :( They have amazing colours, but the Cremes i bought (blue and white) actually CRACKED all over the surface by day 2. I'm having some extra bubble problems as well that may be due to shaking the bottles, which I know now is a no-no. That said, the more metalic and pearly shades go on well, last well, and don't seem to crack - I have the gunmetal and a light pearly green. The light green is VERY sheer, but the gunmetal is awesome! Not a fan of the brush - IMO O.P.I. has the best brush out there, but it will work.
