As streaky as this polish is, I don't find it anymore streaky thank other pale polishes. You definitely need to work with it and perfect a technique with it. I find a thin base coat of white polish works nicely with this. It makes it opaque enough with 2 coats and minimizes streaks, in my experience. I used a light hand with an ample amount of product on the brush, but not too much. It's a lovely shade of pale pink that suits my pale skin, and it isn't a stark color that looks weird.
Toners -Neutrogena - Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent

I've been using this for 2 weeks, and so far, I will be repurchasing. I was using it twice a day for the first few days (eager for its results), and it did dry me out even with a moisturizer. Now, I just use it at night and follow it with a pretty thick, night time moisturizer. I find that in the morning, my skin doesn't need much more than a washing and a light day moisturizer. There are more nourishing toners out there if that's what you want, but for the pore cleansing purposes, it does the job. My pores are definitely smaller, and I notice (TMI alert) less gunk in them.

LOOOOOOVVVEEE this! After stripping the color from my hair, and bleaching it about a year ago, I needed something to tame the frizz and nourish my hair. This was it. It was love at first use. As my hair is still in the process of healing, I notice that I use less and less of this each time. I've been using it it for about 3 months. I'm to the point now where I only use it mid length to the ends (mid-back length), as it seems to grease up my roots and weigh down my hair.
After damaging my hair by stripping and bleaching it, nothing helped calm my frizz and split ends like this does. It made my hair so soft again and more managable. I love it! I use 3 pumps on my thin, mid-back length hair every time I wash my hair. I've only used it for a few weeks, but I know I will continue to use it!
I don't know why this product received so many bad reviews. I love it! It has never dried out on me, and I've used it for quite a few months. I just ordered 2 more. It may not be as waterproof as it claims, but with an eye primer, it lasts all day. I just wish the tip wasn't so delicate. =\

I loved this product the first time I used it. Loved it! The next day, I was broken out ALL over my face. I discontinued using it. The next day, I formed an itchy rash on my neck. The day after that, I had hives all over my chest. I'm usually not a fan of animal testing until something like this happens. I'm happy to know it didn't have the same affect on most, if not all, of the reviewers. I really want to love this product again, but obviously my skin feel the same way. =[

I bought this in Steel, and I love it! It glides on and stays on all day/night. My only complaint would be that I wish it didn't dry so fast. I would love to be able to blend it more. I like to use it as a liner sometimes and it's easy to smudge, but not as easy to blend all over the lid.
I have very naturally curly hair. Finding any product that can make my hair as straight as possible is an amazing thing. I got this for Christmas and I love it! Normally when I find a straightener I am semi-happy with, I stick with them, so I was pleased to at least get a chance to try something new. I don't really use the curling part of the iron, but the straigtener is great. It really gets my hair stick-straight like I want it and it lasts all day. I can even sleep on it, and in the morning it will still be straight, where as before I would have to spend another 15 minutes in the bathroom doing touch-ups.
Makeup Brushes -Coastal Scents - pink-handled angle blush brush

This brush surprised me! I wasn't sure of what I was expecting, but I was very pleased with it. It has compact bristles that are perfect for lining. I would buy more considering the price! I mean, it's only like $1.75. The quality surpasses the price of it, but even with a few stray hairs, it can easily and cheaply be replaced.
Hair -Unlisted Brand - Hask Pure Shine Spray-On Luminator

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I have been using it for about 3 years. I can't see myself using anything else for an all-over shine.
You definitely need a haircut prior to using this. It isn't meant to solve the dreaded split end issue I usually have. (Having naturally curly hair that I blow dry and straighten, with color/highlights on top of that!) After a cut, I will use this and it definitely keeps my ends a lot more smoother than they would be if I weren't using it.
Palettes -Coastal Scents - Ultra Shimmer 88 eye shadow palette

All of the colors were a litle intimidating at first, but I LOVE it! I would have paid MORE than $20 for it. I couldn't wait for it to get to my house after I ordered it. For the first few days, everytime I opened it I saw angels fly out and music playing. Lol. I really, really enjoy having so many options and different looks. It is definitely for those who enjoy playing around with make-up and going for different looks.
