Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - Roller Lash Curling and Lifting Mascara-BROWN

I would buy it again IF I COULD! This was my favorite mascara in decades of wearing mascara.

Apparently, Benefit has chosen to discontinue this product in Brown. So I have discontinued my use of ALL Benefit products, and will not buy anymore. This discontinuation is discriminatory against those of us that are too fair to wear black mascara.

I've bought several concealers over the last 30+ years, but after a couple weeks they got shoved to the back of the drawer, and eventually tossed. By the time I needed concealer in my late 20's, my skin was already on the dry side, and everything I tried either eventually creased, got cakey, or disappeared in just an hour or two. This stuff doesn't. I am fortunate that Swan is a …Read more

I have very fine, short, and thinning hair. This stuff is a miracle for me. Washing my hair every day leaves it dry and splitting, but sleeping on it makes it go completely flat, even when it's not at all dirty. Oribe to the rescue! I would never use it as a dry shampoo, but to give my hair some lift, volume and body, nothing beats it, and I have tried a LOT of products in my search. Would I …Read more

Polishes - NYC New York Color - Minute Quick Dry Top Coat

Nov/09/2017

Definitely my favorite quick dry top coat, and I lost count of how many I've tried. Inexpensive, easy to find, easy to thin if necessary, and it never goes cloudy like that overpriced quick dry brand so many seem to like. The only downside is that I now have a ridiculous number of barely used other quick dry top coats sitting in a Helmer that will never be used, as well as a nearly full 4 oz …Read more

Been my favorite red glitter for 10 years. I get more ooooohs and aaaaahs from strangers with this color than any other polish I own, and I have far too many polishes, lol.

I Really like this formula. They wear well without drying out my lips.. They last a good time, and fade gracefully, at least in the four shades I have. I haven't They aren't really matte, at least not on me. There is a satin-ish sheen to them. I specifically seek out lip stains because a) I hate matte lipsticks, b) regular lipstick doesn't wear long on me as I tend to lick my lips …Read more

On my...fourth tube? Will be buying a couple more day after tomorrow in Ulta's 21 Days sale. My lashes are fairly long and have a good natural curl. They are fine though, and not terribly thick. Roller Lash does a fabulous job on them. Makes them look less fine individually and thicker overall, but not too dense which is not a look I like. It makes them longer without clumping, and does such …Read more

No longer in the regular line, but not that hard to find. I'm going to buy a backup to my backup, which just became my regular. Only polish I have ever used up. I have somewhere over 600 bottles of polish, (I'm afraid to count them again), and well over 100 of them are reds, glorious reds in every finish and shade of red.Berries, wines, fire engines, nearly black, and every shade of red …Read more

I got mine in a Birchbox recently, and I don't know, maybe it's old since I hear Birchbox is having issues. It goes on beautifully, and looks great...for about 2 hours, then it starts flaking so badly that within an hour I look like I have some kind of fungal issue, especially under my eyes, although some of it ends up on the top lid and my cheeks as well. Part of me wants to go buy a …Read more

This is far more than a detangler. It's a leave in conditioner. A great one for people that need something light, but effective. I have very thin, baby fine hair that doesn't like conventional, rinse out conditioners. They weigh my hair down and make it look dirty within hours. My hair stylist told me I had to use something because my hair was getting very dry. I got a hold of a sample …Read more
