It's always surprising to see bad reviews on products I enjoy - this is one of the best mascaras I've tried both h/e and d/s. A light hand is necessary with this or my lashes will clump. I like the brush - kind of like a spiral with lines in the middle. Straight mascara brushes have always helped my long, curled, but thin lashes look thick and voluminous. This is a nice formula, not too thin, not too thick, and is a very dark pigmented black. Adds nice length, definite volume, and definite curl. It was soo cheap - it came with revlon's kohl eyeliner for 6 bucks. A steal. This is the only mascara I'll seriously consider returning to. I think that if you have long lashes with natural curl this will work better for you - this will weigh straight lashes down.
Definition of sexy. Alluring, light and beautiful. I wear this everday and everyday I get complimented. Guys ask to hug me because I smell awesome. It does fade a bit during the day, but not to the point where other or myself can't smell it either. It does change scents, but in the best way possible, for me. I would love it if it was more powerful, but that definitely won't keep me from buying it again. Love Love Love. And the packaging is adorable.
Even though I have written a review on this product before, I've had a couple months to know everything about this foundation. This sucks megahard, even though I had initially given this 4 lippies. Cons: - Transfers like no other! It gets ALL over my clothes, other people, and any other materials made of cloth. - Break outs!! Little bumbs were all over my face, my complexion become terrible, and i looked terrible even when wearing the foundation. - Thick and heavy, mask-like - Smells like sweet paint, very chemical-ly Pros: - Good coverage - Lasts all day - Controls oil really well This is last foundation I'll use. If you want all of these pros, Boots No 7 Stay and Perfect will do the trick, and is hypoallergenic and has sunscreen
im not new to the makeup world, but i am to the whole foundation thing...this is my first liquid foundation (my first foundation ever was Clinique Almost Powder, which i enjoyed but looked chalky on me and didnt cover my large pores). For someone with oily skin like me, this is a must, but the definitely has its pros and cons. Pros: - medium to full coverage. with one layer this can cover up all my large pores and minor acne. its a more natural finish. - this is also very buildable and blendable. - lasts all day and doesnt transfer easily. i accidentally scraped my face with my jacket, and only a little came off. -definitely helps with the oil omg! CONS: - in all honesty, it kinda smells like paint...dunno if its my bottle. but it smells like a sweet paint, expect without all the chemicals. the scent isnt as bad when applied, but it fades after an hour. - the bottle sucks. really needs a pump. - caused minor breakout on my forehead overall a really good product. id reccomend if you dont mind the smell, cause to me thats the biggest thing i dislike about this product. but a great foundation.

I love this...this is a very new product, so it was a risk buying this without reading any reviews - my face is extremely sensitive and acne prone. I always like to read several reviews before purchasing any skin care products, but this is something I don't regret. I have crazy oily skin, and no matter what products I use I will still have shine during the day. This product controls my oil like no other - this is the only new thing added to my skin care and makeup routine by the way, so I know that it's this product that's controlling oil. I've used many scrubs before, and all of them either break me out or burn, but this doesn't. I was afraid of the effect the beads would have on my skin, but it was very soothing and gave a clean feeling afterwards. I wash my face with this in the morning, and then apply makeup...that was about 9am, and it is now 4pm and I haven't had to blot once. For only $7 bucks, this is well worth the money. Try it!
i really like this. it adds length and volume, and is a true black. i also like the brush, it targets all of my lashes and disperses product evenly. the only reason why im rating this 4 lippies is because that its so heavy it weighs down the natural curl in my lashes...however, i did try it on someone with straight lashes (i didnt curl them before applying) and it did an amazing job adding curl! so im not entirely sure how this would work for other people with naturally curled lashes.
i don't understand why people are such a fan of this product..it did nothing for my lashes but darken them. no volume, no nothing. i have decently long lashes, but they're thin, so volume is a must - however, i like lengthening along with it. and this did nothing. as a mascara junkie i thought this would be better considering all the rave reviews ive heard about it, but this did not work for me at all.
i don't understand the hype...definitely not my fav. mascara. tbh i wouldnt repurchase...this really didnt do anything for my lashes ( for reference i have long, but thin, dark lashes). it made them soft and fluttery, but barely and lengthening. only thickening. which is good, but im looking for a total package, and this definitely wasnt it. for the price, it wasnt worth it. honestly, i think the brush is too big to have any real benefit (the irony) on my lashes.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Extra-Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner

overall, a really good product. on my upper lash line it lasts all day, rarely smudges and is a nice, intense black. i love lining my lower lashline with this because its soo creamy. it smudges easily when it has yet to set, so this is perfect for a smoky eye. the only issue i have with this liner thats its so creamy to the point where its difficult to sharpen, therefore difficult to apply sometimes as well. much of the time i have to apply this with an eyeliner brush, literally scraping the brush across the pencil =( wastes time...but other than that, this is good. id recommend if you have patience.
great product. a really natural, flawless finish without being cakey. i hate the sponge it comes with, so i'd either use a kabuki brush or a triangle sponge. convenient packaging as well - the mirror is very helpful when in a hurry or unable to get to a mirror. the only reason i rate this is 4 lippies is because it doesnt control oil as much as id like it. overall, a great product. i recommend.
i realllyy like this. im a huge fan of the original great lash anyway - it really lengthens my lashes and is soo black. but the ony issue is the tiny brush, it takes forever to apply. this brush is HUGE, and amazing! gives my lashes fullness, volume, and length. id recommend this is you like the formula of original great lash but not the brush.

ehh...it's okay. the color isn't as dark as i'd like it, but its a nice rich black. it does go on really smoothly and is a nice color. as far as staying power goes, doesn't last on my waterline at all. tightlining with this thing sucks. it does last on my upper lashline though, but i want something with a total package. i find myself reaching for my l'oreal eyeliner rather than this. overrated and overpriced.
Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer
xpuppyluvr 8/12/2010 5:48:00 PM
i really like this. however, i can't rate it as a primer, because i don't wear foundation...i prefer to wear this along with a powder. it helps control my oiliness and keeps my powder on longer. i personally love the way my skin feels (and smells - it smells soo good!). it evens out skin tone and makes my face softer, and it also minimizes pores for me. i love the packaging, very hygenic, and its pretty buildable. it is pretty sheer so it doesnt get rid of the redness around my nose, but i don't really expect it too, seeing as it is a primer, not foundation. overall i really like it and would recommend. *p.s. this blends really well into my skin and doesn't make me look orange...however, i do have more orangey skin tones.
did nothing for me. just coated my lashes black. no volume, curl or length. i definitely wont be repurchasing
