i like this brush a lot. i would disagree with many reviewers - it's not too heavy. if you swipe your brush only once and start applying it carefully, you will get the right bit of color! of course, you need a good large round brush for that - i use becca kabuki.
the color is dark pink. i don't notice any yellow/orange pink in it and i actually like it. i'm pale so pink looks …

absolutely love this product, the best i've ever tried!!!
1. although clarins is not advertised as an organic brand, ingredients are very good - you won't find any mineral oil or parabens on the list
2. the coverage looks medium, but feels light. it covers my pores perfectly (no other powder or foundation could do that before), freckles and small acne scars. still, i …

i can just repeat what others were saying - amazing black-purple color, especially good for green eyes. it's somewhat similar to BE sure thing, which is brown-purple, but this one is darker and less gold shimmer.
the supply seems infinite - i've had my jar for years and even shared with my girlfriends and i used like 20% of it!
i must say that i wear it dry, but it if you use …

i own several BE liner shadows - downtown, sure thing, black ice to name a few. this one is very different.
first the texture - it doesn't glide on smoothly. it's almost impossible to apply it evenly, neither with with dry brush, nor with wet
then the color - it's very dull. maybe it's supposed to be matte, but given it shows almost no color, it looks just dull …

Hair Color - Unlisted Brand - Palette by Nature - All Natural Permanent Hair Color

1.0

Oct/18/2011

This product is even worse than a regular bad product because it gives hope in an almost hopeless quest for a natural hair color and then brutally crashes it.
The application was alright - but i did at a salon. A bit lengthy but it would have been acceptable if the color had been good. In my case - a waste of 2 hours.
i bought 6g, which i expected to be warm medium brown color. When …

when you read the description - this balm sounds amazing! great properties, natural ingredients, unusual packaging, bla-bla-bla... it fact, it turned out to be the worst lip balm i ever owned and no comparison to the other lip balm from origins, cover your mouth, which i love.
it fact this balm feels like wax. when it's cold outside (-10 celsius or so) it freezes and becomes sort of …

PROS:
+ the colors are very shimmery - a plus for me, but definitely not for the shy ones. the particles are very small so overall it looks classy, more like glowy
+ the packaging is nice and there is a lot of product!
+ the dark brown makes a good eye shadow. the color is not very long-lasting on my oily lids, but the shimmer and a hind of color remain till the evening
+ good …

Jun/28/2011

pros:
+ all quality ingredients, all natural, no harsh chemicals
+ spray is very convenient
+ first feels like oil but sinks into skin within a few seconds and leaves no heavy residual
cons:
- it's not a GLOSS - it sinks in too much and to quickly. i bought it to use on my legs in the summer - to give them nice subtle glow when i'm wearing no stockings. but this …

the product is bad and the company is a liar. despite calling themselves "natural bath soaps" producer, CM loaded this product with sodium laureth and lauryl sulphates. what's worse, they also put some foam suppressants so it doesn't leather and doesn't clean even with all these harsh chemicals. a guess they wanted to pretend natural but they overdid it - it's worth …Read more

this stuff is only for desperate people with awfully thin hair. for all the rest it's not worth the suffering.
i admit, it gives volumes and solves the problem of oily scalp - with it i am able to go for 3-4 day instead of 2. however, if feels like cement in your hair, you can't comb it, you can't run you fingers through it. even though i tried to apply it on the roots, the …
