This mascara is terrible! I was really wanting to like it, because it is hypoallergenic and waterproof. I needed a cheaper alternative to Tarte's mascara, because as a full-time college student I just can't afford to buy lots of expensive makeup. Unfortunantely, when I tried this, it did not impress. The mascara gave me thin "spider lashes." It doesn't lengthen or hold a curl. (Ok, it did hold a curl for about 15 minutes.) This mascara volumized a little bit, but nothing substantial. AND, to top it off, it's definitely not waterproof! Tears, rain and sweat all cause this to break down in a matter of minutes. Yuck. In addition to all the above it smudges within a few hours. I am very disappointed in this mascara, and will not be repurchasing.
I really like the color, it's just hard to blend and apply. I think that once you get the hang of applying/blending it, it would look really nice. Regarless, it's a nice color. Just wish there was more of it in a tube!

The sugar side of this left my lips feeling very soft and smooth--and the crystals were fun to lick off my lips. ;-) The plumper side almost looked clear on my lips, but it gave them a soft shine of orangey pink. Pretty! It was very tingly, and felt very good! I highly recommend this product!
I love it! It takes of makeup like a snap! Definitely buy this if you don't have lots of extra time to remove makeup!
I love this product! I have very oily skin so it's extremly hard to find something that will keep down shine, but this works very well for me. I do have to warn: if you're going to be doing something that requires a *lot* of sweating (yard sales, soccer, etc...) you're not going to want this because it doesn't keep down heavy sweat. When you apply this product, only use a little and BLEND it well! Once you get the hang of using it, you'll love it! :)
I'm really sad that I can't like this product! I love JI so much, but the eyeshadow was a real let down! Within about 30 minutes it was creasing--really badly! And I had on eyeprimer! The colors are GORGEOUS, and the texture is really good (it applies very smoothly), but unforunantely, it creases horribly for me. I do have very oily skin, so that probably helped it to crease. If you have oily skin, don't buy this!
I really like this product. The bristles are very smooth and it doesn't tug my skin like other brushes tend to do. It picked up the right amount of powder, and blends really well! I'm very pleased with it!
