I truly love this stuff--only reason it gets 4 lippies is because the grey coverage isn't as long-lasting as I would hope. But the highlights are fan-damn-tastic, and the color itself is wonderful.

I'm glad I read a lot of reviews before I used this. I was prepared for the process to be time consuming and a bit laborious toward the end. But basically it's apply hair color, sit and watch tv for 30 mins, rinse and shampoo and dry. Next, mix the highlighting powder with developer and apply. Wait til the color looks right (doing a strand test) then rinse/condition.

2 things I learned: Don't use all the base color at once. I mixed 3/4 of it and left some for later. This turned out to be really handy, because I went a little nuts on the highlighting and …

I like this--seems like there's a bit of a learning curve. It goes on smoothly but I def wouldn't describe as "creamy." It almost looks a bit chalky, but not bright white. More of a very light beige. And it does try to grab onto the lower lashes. So I go easy with it now, and try not to blink so it will set/stay out of lashes. That being said, it does make my eyes look wide …Read more

So I had a crap hair day on Tuesday. First I got a truly 4th rate haircut--too short, no shaping, no style. Just hacked to chin length (shorter than I wanted) and bangs. Then for some reason I decided it'd look better darker, so I put on a "light" ash brown gloss--and it came out very dark brown. Totally hid my highlights and utterly muddy-depressing.

Last night I tried …

I like it, but perhaps that's because I don't look for volume in a mascara. I just want length, long fluttery *non-clumping* length. And this does that for me (plus, I do like the packaging)!

It was a learning curve, but now I realize I have to curl, apply the mascara--then wait. After a bit I re-curl--and it looks great. Very long feathery lashes, just as I want. No spiders …

Highly recommend: Been using it for a week and love it. I lift my hair and spray at my roots--and I am not as stingy as I usually am after seeing a youtube vid where someone said you have to use a fair bit. I was going to buy the expensive brand versions (B&B Dryspun etc.), but ran into this first and OH MAN I'm glad I did. . .Gives my fine, thin hair some lift and body. I just got a bob …Read more

I'm surprised to see this doesn't work for other MUers, since I have annoyingly sensitive skin (Celtic) and this lovely eye cream gives me no problems. I was given a sample of this in December, and just ordered a refill. I love the texture; it sinks in quickly and helps my eye makeup go on smoothly. I find the texture so luxurious that I look forward to using it--which I can't say …Read more

This is an early review (I just used this for the first time) but I am Thrilled with the results. I had a thick band of brassy hot roots after my last dye job. I tried re-dying them, but they just got brassier. I'm trying to find a way to dye my own hair a medium as brown using professional products and not the store boxes of dye which are so drying, and it's early days yet in my …Read more

I bought this at the same time as I bought Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner; UD I bought in a very dark blue color, this Almay in black. I loved the color of the UD liner--still do! so flattering and the dark blue whitens the eyes--but now I think it goes on a bit blotchy, and it does smudge by the end of the day.

And I'm liking this Almay more and more. It does take a few goes to get …

Fantastic--absolute HG. I like this BETTER than UD Oil Slick--the price has a lot to do with that, and the packaging is eco-friendlier. This goes on easily, stays on for a long time, works well in waterline and tightlining--then I do a softer line and boom. Done. Thank god I work near Harmon's so I can pick up more.

Seriously, I love. If NYX had a navy I would happily buy that …

I just bought this today, but put it on over 6 hours ago and most of it is still in place. That's rather impressive to me--though it's not perfect; it has worn off slightly in blotches, hence the 4 lippy rating. However, I have never had a waterline pencil that has done quite as well as that, so I am a satisfied customer. I love the sapphire color; nearly bought the Uzi instead, but …Read more
