Lip Liners - RIMMEL - 1000 Kisses Lip Tint

Dec/05/2012

this for me is a great product because I've always liked the color and shape of my lips. I wore lipstick anyway for a more finished and glamorous look, but it does change the way people see your lips. This is like lipstick without the lipstick effect, and without the ickiness after you've been wearing lipstick for a while, eating, drinking, etc.I use the moisturizer and the color …Read more

Shampoo - Sunsilk - Captivating Curls Shampoo

2.0

Sep/27/2012

1. First, apparently Sunsilk has different packaging in Europe than it does in the US.
2. It is not nearly as cheap in Euros as it is in USD, so I can not say it is "dirt cheap" though it is quite cheap.
3. My review is universal for all sunsilk products. I have used various aimed for frizzy-curly hair and none of them have lived up to the raving reviews. Instead of detangling …

Like many users, I keep returning to this mascara. So far it's as HG as it gets. I feel bad for those customers who live in places where Max Factor is no longer sold.
Pros: adds and impressive amount of volume and length
is buildable
Not messy
Very black
Keeps eyelashes soft

Cons: Short shelf life. I've had mascaras that have lasted much longer …

Liquid - The Body Shop - Moisture Foundation SPF 15

I bought thisin the lightest shade in 2009 so I don't know if it's the same formula. The only liquid foundation i've ever bought or used. I don't wear foundation regularily: when i moved I didn't even pack it to bring it with me. No problems at all;
matches my skin colour, no oompa-loompa effect, not scented, longest shelf life ever, no streaking. it's still as …

Hair - Schwarzkopf - Gliss Kur Total Repair Treatment (hairmask)

I have to take off a lippy for the product because the quantity is just not enough. My hair isn't long, it isn't even shoulder-length and i've almost finished the jar, and it hasn't been a month yet. Yes it's inexpensive, but there are a lot of competitors out there that can promise better shelf-life for a similar price.
I bought all 3 products of the line. I take …

Powder - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Mineral Foundation

I too have had the same one since 2009. However I don't wear foundation on a daily basis. I like to wear this on my eyelids. It's not quite true-match, I think it needs some work, the formula needs t be a little lighter in weight and a tad softer in colour, there is a hint of orange if you apply too much.

Eyeliner - Unlisted Brand - Guylond Gel eyeliner

A fantastic competitor to Maybelline's gel eyeliner. This product is EXTREMELY similar. The brush is more fan-like and the formula is less stiff, it is creamier and a little more shiny. I gave the packaging a 5 because of the brush and the fact that the formula doesn't dry out in the jar.

The only con is that it is not smudge-proof like Maybelline. It smudges with absolutely …

A very good mascara. One of the closest things I've seen to "the false lash effect." I don't know why i haven' bought it in so many years, probably due to its short shelf life. Pictures added.

My HG from age 14-18. However, I only wore crimson.All the other colours looked awful on me.
Pros:
It does STAY for ages.
Easy application, overall no complaints about the lipstick itself.
Unique shades and colours.


Cons:
Extremely hard to find. I always had to buy it in the series package, and I had to ask my friends to buy it from airplanes and …

Mascara - Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/10/2011

Not impressed. The first few days it worked quite well, however in comparison to drugstore brands, this gives little length.

I gave it a 2 because for the quality-quantity-price ratio it's awful. Also, short shelf life and prone to flaking.

Con: good brush
Very black pigment

and that is literally all.
