Love this mascara! I have bought the waterproof version and It holds my curl all day which is sooo sooo important!! It does not smudge during the day. It gives a dramatic look, makes them thick and defined! My sister tried it on and commented that it made her lashes look spidery. But I have no problem with it, in fact I think this is my HG.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray

I've bought this product a few times and never really had a problem with it. Having said that I haven't used another brand of heat taming spray to compare it with- so it's hard to judge. I have not had any stickiness problems as others have mentioned and I am really generous with this product. I feel that whenever I have gone *without* a spray my hair gets really frizzy and dry after a blow dry. So this helps prevent that, and I do have a softer finish too. It's definitely worth a try, it's the cheapest out there in the market for me too.
This is fine for small blemishes on the face, but not great for under the eyes. I really have to warm this stuff on the back of my hand before I apply it. Otherwise if I put this directly under my eyes which is (a pretty delicate area) it tugs and doesn't spread out as easily. I think I might look for liquid concealers.
For someone that has dry sensitive skin, this is fantastic. To the point where I definitely can imagine using this product for the rest of my life. I have no intention of searching for another cleanser. BUt there is something I should mention, this doesn't wash off my water proof eyeliner thoroughly, and I end up having to wipe it off as Im drying my face. Other than that this is great for me!
It's pretty good for a drugstore brand. I have asian lashes- sparse with no curl. This is not a miracle worker, it looked amazing the first time I applied it, but that did not last and my lashes limped back to straight. Im pretty sure my oily eye lids helped sabotage that! I can imagine this would be great for someone with longer eyelashes and with natural curl. But unfortunately, I need something with more oopmh.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Exaggerate Full Colour Eye Definer (all colours)

If you happen to have oily eyelids do not expect miracles, this has smudged under my eyes on a warm day. But having said that I still like this eyeliner, maybe because I am used to having eyeliner smudging on me and this one has been the least problematic. I usually combat that problem by putting pressed powder on after lining them. There is a little smudger on the other end, which has helped create a sexy smoky look, and I recently discovered that when you pull the little foam smudger out, there is a tiny sharpener! Obviously to help create a sharper point. I have purchased this over three times! Its very good.
It was good as an inbetween foundation. However I find it ironic that it is a foundation made for being photographed with, yet it has a high SPF content. Because when Ive worn this when I've gone out, and took photos, my skin looked like a totally different shade in the photos. I'm rather tanned but I looked like a shade of darker tan mixed with powder white. Weird. This also settles on my pores, making my nose look like a strawberry. I might keep this to use during the summer for the SPF, but def not when I go out at night. Also, if you have dry skin, it may cake.
This is great for me. I have trouble finding a foundation that doesn't cake on my face, as my skin is really quite dry. The lady behind the counter applied a lot on my face the first time I tried it. Which I didnt like as it felt like it sat on the surface of my skin and I could feel it when i scrunched up my face. So instead I only use a thin layer, and it gives me a hint of dewiness, which is what I want. I can gradually build it on problematic areas and it covers great. Next time I purchase this, I will definitely buy it online- I ended up spending 90 AUD, a bit much for a poor student like myself.
i bought this for half price! and it is sooo good.. this gave my asian lashes oomph! the first time i put it on i actually had noticable lashes! lol it is dramatic which i like..the only thing that may make ppl not like it, is becoz it can be a tad bit clumpy. but other than that it is good. (i haven;'t used a lot of higher end mascaras but i think this is the best do far in keeping my curl)
I don't know what has happened to this product. I remember it only being a year ago when i purchased this for the first time. And back then i really liked it. It wasn't hard on my skin and my skin felt radiant etc etc. But then i ran out of the product and headed to the shops only to find the packagin of the same product had changed, and i thought "ok, no biggie". But when i went home to use the scrub i found that the actual product seemed different! (ok, so i don't have actual proof of this) But it DEFinITEly feeeels Different!! Just when i thought that it was just the packaging that had changed-i find that the actual product did too :( But to put this long story short- this scrub, is way more 'grainier' and too harsh. And Even if i 'rub' it on really softly, it still feels sort of too much. :( i really did want to like this.(Sigh) Oh well. I guess I'll just use it on my body instead-like my butt for instance. (sorry if that was an overshare!)
I bought this sort of 'unintentionally', as it came with this ''buy 2 for the price of 1'' deal, and i only really wanted to get the apricot scrub that came with it. Well, i did end up trying this, and as i didn't really have any high expectations of it, it really did sort of shock me as it was actually quite good! I absoloutely love the smell, it's got a cucumber/watermelon sorta smell (LOve It!) And it isn't too drying for my skin and the little microscrub beads are good and not soo abrasive either. Like others have said, it doesn;t really get rid of all my eye makeupe off (like eyeliner), but it doesn't really bother me in the end- coz the smell is soo nice!
i got this as a sample through the mail. It's good, very hydrating for the face and is more easier to apply than the cream version. I think i will stick with the cream, simply because i found that the lotion had this odd smell. Sorta hard to describe, yoghurty mix with glue? (i could've gotten a bad packet!) But don't get me wrong besides the smell the results were very good :)
i have used this for a week now and i definitely am glad that i have bought this. It treats my dry sensitive skin well, making it hydrated again! just like others have said b4 i found that a little does go a long way. oh yeah, and it was preety cheap too. mine cost a lil under $10.
after reading all the reveiws i decided to purchase this in hope that my short asian lashes would be a bit more..well noticable. It definitely left a more natural look and lengthened them more than it did thickening. It held a curl preety well, a bit more better than full n soft did. nothing much to rave on about, you can't really notice it by looking at the front of my face but for those out there, who are thinking of trying it, why not, i guess. i only had to pay around $8 AUD for it
It's sorta thick and waxy but not in a bad way. It goes on well and overall not bad. I like how it doesn't have a high fragranced smell (i hate it when it does)
