So I'll be in the minority here, but I LOVE this stuff! It reminds me of the old Rimmel VolumEyes that was discontinued years ago.
The German styled wand is very different from the typical spooly brush,more like a comb, and takes a little practice.
Most mascaras are too wet when brand new, and don't give full pigment until they've been opened a couple of days. Not this …

This gloss is lovely. Peachy pink nude on my moderately pigmented lips. It smells nice, feels truly buttery. It is sticky, and that sucks for my hair. My husband loves the way it looks but not the way it feels when he kisses me. Three out of five ain't bad.

I acquired my first one of these babies back in July in a boutique. I fell in love with it. I'm pale, NW20 and cool toned. The pink matte side is perfect for my cool toned skin. The bronzy side is a great little flush that gives me a sunkissed look. I love it! So much so that I recently ordered a new one from Amazon because I've hit serious pan on mine, so yes I would repurchase, have …Read more

Hair Color - Ion - Color Brilliance Brights - Titanium

I've used ion purples, pinks and blues for years. They're always awesomely pigmented, and, with the right care, give great color payoff. So when I wanted something different, I went for Titanium. I did a 30 bleach on strands and around my face. Got a good white. Used pre-color spray and a little protein filler. Put the Titanium on, heavy. Left it there several hours. Rinsed well and …Read more

I received this in my Sally Beauty Box and was excited to try it. For background, I am in my late 40's, live in a dry climate, and deal with all the lovely things that come with those. I don't have generally sensitive skin. I have used things in the past that made my skin red and raw, but its rare. I was so surprised by this mask. The directions say to unfold the mask and place it on …Read more

Polishes - Maybelline New York - Color Show The Blushed Nudes - 752 Mink Lust

Pretty collection, the 'blushed nudes' from Maybelline. Reminds me of the original Kevyn Aucoin Ultima The Nakeds collection from the 80's. So I got the polish. Gorgeous shade of creamy beige, that almost perfectly matches my pale skin. Coverage is horrific. It took four coats to get an opaque, non-streaky set, and then it promptly chipped, even with base and top coats. I know pale …Read more

Sep/28/2015

I am very very pale, and my brows, despite having grown out from the over-plucking of the 80's, are so light as to be invisible. Because of this, I have tried a huge number of brow products over the years. When I saw this in Sally, I decided to give my M.A.C. Omega a break. Normally, even "blonde" brow products are too dark for me, and Omega is where I ended up, although I was …Read more

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - COLOR RICHE Collection Exclusive Red Lip Color - Blake's Red

Jun/19/2015

I got Blake because my coloring is almost the same as hers (pale, blonde, light eyed, with cool undertones). I've tried a lot of "true reds" and always struggle with the right basetone. On L'Oreal's website this is described as being for cool toned skin. I generally do better with cooler tones, but if a red lipstick has too much blue in it, it looks off on me. So I was …Read more

May/12/2015

I first discovered this product a couple of summers ago, when I decided to do a full two process color and use ion Lavender Color Brilliance as my all over color after bleaching. I got the full bleach, but when I went to apply the ion, which I do full strength, I got a super blotchy turnout. My hair just wasn't grabbing color. So I went to Sally and the woman there told me to get this. I …Read more

I understand this isn't a complete food scent, and I also have a lot of experience with The Body Shop's Body Butters. I can see why there's a negative aura around this.
First, it does have a chocolate note, but not a huge sugar note, so more of a raw chocolate. It's texture is typical of most of TBS' body butters - they're like buttah.
Goes on smooth …
