LOVE the results, HATE the smell. it smells like something that's gone bad. the packaging isn't great either, the price isn't amazing but less than Fresh, which i love, and I actually think the results are better. If you can stomach the smell (truly, it smells like something that was once alive but died), it's an amazing product.
Totally terrible. This did absolutely nothing for my lashes at all. To the point where I thought maybe I'd bought a defective one with no mascara in it... Or I thought perhaps the mascara had dried out. I agree with the reviewer who said this is for girls who like the natural look, but this was only giving me the natural look as in NO mascara whatsoever! seriously, NOTHING showed up at all. Totally disappointing, and for $19, it's like WTF? I'm going to return it promptly. Boo.
Lip Treatments -MAC - Tinted Lip Conditioner Stick SPF 15 ~ Strobe Beam

Have this in Current. It appears to do the OPPOSITE of what it's supposed to -- within minutes my lips are super dry. WTF? This is worse than drugstore quality. MAC overshot with this product -- it just feels so unnecessary.
Shave Products -Unlisted Brand - Skin Milk Shave Cream

Fantastic! Billion times better than traditional shaving cream, especially for underarms and legs. (It did leave some bumps after my bikini line, but just about anything I use causes that, though they were no worse with this product). So easy to use and leaves you smooth and fresh -- it's like shaving with a conditioner/ lotion rather than a foam. Absolutely love this!
Lip Gloss -Make Up For Ever - Fascinating Lip Gloss

While the packaging is a bit generic (sorta Wet N Wild-ish), the product is amazing. NO goopy, clumpiness or stickiness. It goes on smooth and stays glossy but not glassy (which is a good thing, IMO). The fruity smell is great too. Absolutely love this gloss!
Just got this in a swap, and I actually love how sweet and airy it is. It's not too strong or cloying, IMO -- it's sugary but light and not candy-like. It's a lovely pick-me-up for winter.
JUST got MAC's Mattene Lipstick in Flattering, and it lives up to its name. It's a gorgeous muted peach shade, it's moisturizing, not clumpy or thick (always a fear with mattes), and absolutely wonderful!! Perfect daytime color and would also look great against a tan or with smoky eyes. I'm really pale and I even love this shade. I can only imagine it'd look even more amazing against darker skin.
I kept going back and forth with this product. At first I hated it -- too clumpy and overly thick. Then I got used to it, but I agree with what another poster said: it's a ton of work. It definitely gives a good false effect, but I'm wondering if it's maybe too much so. Now I've discovered that I need to stop using it altogether, because my right eye keeps watering, and I'm fairly sure this mascara's the culprit -- strange since I usually don't have much of a negative reaction to any eye makeup, but the itching is intense! Sorry, MAC. Won't be going down this route again. :/
I was given this product as a gift, so I'm not sure I'd spend the $40 on it (though it is a good deal considering what you'd pay for four separate shades of Stila eye color), but as someone who's pretty horrible at doing a smoky eye, I like the instruction. But most of all, I like the selection of shades, especially the "Icy" champagne all-over color. Also though, as someone with pale skin and permanent dark undereye circles, I never feel confident with a smoky eye -- it usually on exacerbates the condition. But... back to the product -- this is probably great for a smoky eye novice and for someone who wants a more subtle, less dramatic smoky eye.
I LOVE this shade! my friend sent it to me -- I didn't pick it out. I have really pale skin and lightish brown hair, and while I thought this shade was gonna be way too dark, it's actually really subtle and lovely! It smells and tastes delicious too! Love the sparkle. Can't recommend it enough, even for lighter complexions.
Gotta agree with Canuck317 -- this peacocky color is AWESOME! I absolutely love it. It ends up being just about any color you want it to be depending on the angle the light hits it. Love it!
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Dime
tamron 8/13/2007 12:42:00 PM
I'm really inept at eyeliner, so I love how smooth this one is. It doesn't drag or pull at all. I'm not totally sure that I love this shade on ME, but the product overall is great -- except that I found that the cap falls off pretty easily. :/
I didn't purchase this product (received it for free), so I can't comment on the price, but I think it's crap. I have long eyelashes, but this clumped them together so I looked like I had about four eyelash clumps instead of separate long lashes. I tried it on its own and with other mascaras. I would never buy this. Too bad because I was really excited for it.
I absolutely adore this product. It's not overly musky and not at all gimmicky. It just delivers exactly what it promises: it smells like the beach. So relaxing and not overpowering. Love it!

Ugh. I HATE this stuff. At least for my face. It's SO thick and greasy, and I almost died of the burn when it got into my eyes. It also made my face extremely hot and irritated. Definitely not for me!!!
