Very disapointed with the quality and size of the samples lately. Birchbox used to be wonderful, I have gotten NARS, Anastasia, Redken, Benefit etc samples before. But lately it is brands no one has heard of, and tiny samples. So disappointing

Love love love! This is the only eyeliner I have ever found that stays on all day. This goes on smooth, easy, and perfect every time. And it last a really long time. I love the pen style eyeliner, but they usually dry up very fast, this one does not. It can be hard to find, my Ulta and Sephora were both out, but I finally found it at a Ulta in another town.
To me this smells like the old White Shoulders or Sand and Sable, and it does not last long at all. I sprayed it on when I walked into Ulta, by the time I left their was no trace of the scent at all.
Don't waste your money. This is a so so mascara at best. It did not lenthgen my lashes nor make them fuller. What it did do was make them so stiff that if I touched them they would chip in half. The only thing I liked was the pretty purple tube

What a waste of money. Do not buy this thinking it is a cheap dupe of MAC fluidline or smudgepot. It has almost no color payoff. I threw it away after trying it with the brush it came with and my mac brush each several times,
Giant clumpy mess. The color is a great dark black but even with a comb it is still clumpy
This is the worst mascara I have ever tried!! It is the worst product overall that i have ever wasted my money on. Absolutely horrible! The idea seems great, but the execution is a total failure. The wand is one clumpy mess. I didn't even want to put it on my lashes but I wiped the wand and tried, clumpy smeary mess.

I am usually a high end make-up snob but as my budget gets tighter and tighter I have to look at ways to cut back. I saw one of my fav youtubers review this and decided for $2 why not. I am glad i did, I love this stuff. It works better than the high end stuff and for only $2!!! I will be buying everyone they have the next time I am there.
This is my HG scent. I love the clean scent. In the morning when I first put it on I get compliments, but the scent does fade quickly.
This stuff was terrible. It was splotchy and did not last even an hour. Total junk! I got mine at CVS on a buy one get on free offer, when I checked out the manager said "keep your reciept- you'ee be bringing that crap back" and man was she right. I tried both thinking maybe one was defective, but no- they were both total crap
I just got home from the MAC counter, Sephora and Ulta. I find Ulta to be the most frustrating store I ever shop in, or spend my money. I have never once been greeted, or even spoken to, or made eye contact with the staff unless I make them help me. The employees at my store (Lexington KY) are the snobbiest, better than everyone else group of people I ever encountered. I like the fact that Ulta has drugstore products (I like NYX) and hair products along with the cosmetics and fragrances. I only shop there because of the coupons and the fact that they are the only local store that carries NYX. I normally wear a mix of MAC, Makeup for ever and Smashbox, but I like some NYX products. I wish they would accept coupons towards fragrances, but I undersand why they do not. My biggest frustration is that when you finally find someone willing to help you they have no idea about the products. MAC was out of prep +prime lash so I thought I would grab a substitute while at Ulta. After searching over and over I gave up and finally got a sale associate to make eye contact, and I asked her if she knew off hand any brand that they carried had eyelash primer. She rolled her eyes at me like it was the stupidest question anyone has ever asked her, and pointed to the smashbox collection. They were out of their primer so I finally found Ulta professional primer. I would have liked to ask her a couple quesitons about the Ulta Proffesinal brand but no luck she disappeared as quickly as she appeared. Ulta the store may be okay, but I cannot get over the rudeness enough to shop their regularly.
I love that this product is so deep deep black but it is way to smudgy, it does not stay put more than 5 minutes and then you end up looking like a raccoon. Definately do not put on your waterline, in a couple minutes it was all over the whites of my eyes. Worst MAC purchase ever
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Irresistible Apple

I love this scent. It is by far my favorite scent that BBW has ever had. I usually wear Very Sexy perfume by Victoria Secret but sometimes it can be overpowering. I think Irresistible apple will be my new everyday scent. At first it smells fruity and floral but then settles down into a fresh woodsy musky scent.-that reminds me of Very Sexy. With a coupon and their weekend promotion I was able to buy 3 full size products and got 3 free.
