I was seriously dissapointed in this product. I LOVE Rimmel London. I use the concealer and different mascaras daily. So when I saw that they came out with a waterproof eyeliner I was estatic. I bought one in 001-Black, 002-Sparkling Black, and 003-Brown. I couldn't wait to get home and try them. They are pigmented and glide on easy, the formula is nice a creamy, but they aren't as pigmented as say L'oreal Carbon Intense. Here's the downside. I applied the Black to my waterline and the brown to my upper lash line and went to work. I glanced in the mirror about an hour later and ALL the black liner had vanished off my waterline and kind of gathered around my lashes... so I reapplied the brown liner, about an hour later the same thing!! For a so-called "Waterproof Long wearing eyeliner" I am NOT happy. I wasted 4.99 each and should have just gotten the carbon intense if I wanted to keep reapplying..

I got a sample of this in a Birchbox and I loved the way it smelled on me! I generally use the cheaper smells, from bath and body, Victoria secrets, generally I gravitated toward vanilla, or fruity smells. I love this perfume. They claim that it smells like Lavender and Pumpkin Pie, I don't smell either, just a citrusy musky sent. This is definitely a night time smell, but I have been wearing it daily. There's a bit of a woodsy smell after the dry-down, kind of reminiscent of a fruityier version of Twilight Woods from BBW The packaging is adorable, I finally bought the full size and the bottle is practical, the font is cute and the girl on the cover and bottle is adorable. I would Absolutely buy this perfume again and again. I think this is my new signature scent.
I like the color I think that its a nice purple color base with silver shimmers and flakes. on the downside I've found it to be a bit thin and streaky, the best way I've found to use the color is over another color, currently I have it on OVER NYC's Pier 17, with Facets of Fuchsia on my ring finger. I have found that it does chip rather easily, even with base and top coat though, but because the color is so pretty I have 2 bottles because it is a Limited Edition color.
This was my first BB cream, I like the light coverage especially for summer, and it makes my face feel like nothing on. I also like how there is SPF in the formula and it doesn't give you a white cast in pictures. It is a greyish tone when you first apply, but it oxidized to a match on my skin. the packaging is a little iffy, I LOVE how hygienic it is, but sometimes you pump out to much for your face and then you cannot see how much of the product is left and when you need to re-order. but I will continue to buy this as it covers my blemishes, and my scars and is actually lightening the scars to where they aren't as noticable.

I have been debating about this color for a while now, and I finally caved and bought it, I love it, a cobalt blue it almost reminds me of a crayon blue, but not quite there lol. but when I opened the bottle OMG the smell, I change my nail polish regularly and I mean it doesn't smell great but this one, like a cross between REALLY stinky feet and burning rubber....but the color makes up for the smell!!
I really like this, although it is more of a cross between a blush/bronzer and highlight for me. The color is kind of a tawny golden tan, and it is a VERY shimmery product. The container has a little half mirror that I personally just don't get, a full mirror or none at all would have made more sense. It looks amazing as an eye shadow and I love it even more with Sitila's Plumeria on my lips for a very bronzed beach look.

I liked this one best I bought two, Ink and Foil and honestly foil is the only one that worked kinda like it was supposed to but not nearly the way OPI works. I hate the brush its so thin I can barely use it and the formula is very gloppy. I wish the price was lower I know they are on a trend and all but at 7.99 I can buy OPI or china glaze for a dollar more...
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Crackle Overcoat in Ink SpLatter

I wanted to love this product I really did! I bought the silver first and it was alright, nothing great but I figured that maybe silver was just an odd color it being metallic and all, I got a $3 off coupon and so I decided on trying Ink Splatter, the brush is tiny, and the product is all clumpy, it's honestly the consistency of mascara, its so thick. I put in on vertically, nothing really happen, tried horizontally and nothing really happened, I tried diagonally and that was the best kinda crackle I got. The packaging is not the best the cap will sometime just spin and spin, and the brush is so small its almost pointless to try to cover your nail with. and the price is outrageous, I bought this for 7.99, for a dollar more I could have gotten the OPI or china glaze ones, and they might have worked... VERY disappointed.

I like the way it dries... but it definitely doesn't dry in seconds like the bottle says. But it's cheap and it dries well, so I am going to use it until I find something better
