I'm always on the lookout for "the" mascara. You know...the elusive one that does everything you want it to? Well, this is the closest I've come. The last mascara I got before this was Dior Diorshow. For all the hype...I HATED it. So, I decided no more high end mascaras. I can still be disappointed at drugstore prices. I picked this up on a whim & LOVE IT. The …Read more

Gorgeous color! A perfect matte chocolate brown. I cannot say enough lovely things about it. I'm a pretty devoted MAC user & heard great things about NYX. I'm pretty impressed in general. It seems sometimes NYX shadows are hit & miss. Lime juice being a miss...but sometimes you strike gold & NYX's dark brown is definitely gold (well brown...but you know what I …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Single Eye Shadow - Lime Juice

This was the 1st NYX shadow I purchased. I'm a huge MAC fan & I know you can't hold EVERYTHING up to MAC standards...that being said - this shadow was okay. It tends to crumble when I dip my brush in. The color is so pretty in the pot, but you really have to layer it on to get much opacity. As a PP said...the texture is really not smooth at all. After I got this I tried a few …Read more

The texture of this when you apply it to your face is like the poster below describes - melted plastic. It made my already oily t-zone a greasy mess & I never noticed any difference in foundation staying power or application.

B-L-E-H. I didn't like this at all. Instead of leaving a smooth velvety texture (like MAC'S P+P does) it left a particularly yucky 'filmy' sheen to my face. It made my already oily t-zone even more so & I didn't notice a difference in the way my foundation went on. A big thumbs down on this one.

I've tried Laura Geller's Spackle & Smashbox's Photo Finish primer & MAC's P+P is the best one of them all! It gives a great finsh, leaves a nice velvety texture but doesn't seem to weigh down on my face. I have a pretty oily T-Zone & P+P doesn't accentuate that at all. It keeps everything in check. My HG primer!

I'm NC42 & was looking for something to give me a *pop* of color. I explained this to the sales associate at my MAC counter. I was thinking of something bright & coral. Well, he explained that I didn't need to look for a garrish color to have a flush of color. He picked up the purply-mauve pan of Coygirl & I didn't think it'd work to well for me. I never …Read more

This is the only eyebrow pencil I will ever use! I've tried a few brands including The Body Shop...and none, to me, hold a candle to this one. It's super-cheap & very smooth going on. I love the brush attached to the cap. This is my HG eyebrow pencil!

I don't really use hairspray much, but when I do, I love this! Mostly because of the scent. It smells grape-y to me & not headache-inducing (which most hairsprays are to me). I have to admit, that's the main reason I use it when I do...the smell. It's yummy! It's not expensive & certainly does the job. I love it!
