I could not be more divided about this scent.

I give it a 100 on smelling amazing and being exactly what I wanted, in that sense.

I give it a zero for staying power. Ten minutes and it's GONE. It is an absolute joke. It's the real deal, I have no doubts about that, but somehow it just disappears on me completely. *sigh*

I have to say that this is the best "comprehensive" product for creating a smoky eye: having the liner, shadow and smudger in one makes it a pretty fast process. I do some sort of smoky eye every day, and usually it's a multi-multi-step thing (primer, base shadow, eyeliner, crease shadow, blend, blend, blend, add some more contrast to crease, line lower lid, set with shadow, and …Read more

This is a really terrific foundation. It's extremely buildable coverage for a powder, and the gemstone complex gives such a nice glow...however, I agree with everyone here who has commented that even the lightest shade (New Ivory, which I also have) is too dark. I typically use nearly the lightest shade in any line of foundation, and I was disappointed that New Ivory really wasn't …Read more

This is one AWESOME little nail polish! I have a weird relationship with polish in general; it always seems that the less I pay, the better they are. I paid less than two dollars for this at Wal-Mart about a year ago and stashed it away in my train case...and dug it out yesterday. Sapphire (#13) is a super-vibrant blue (today my husband said, "I like your nails...they're all …Read more

For a cheap mascara, this is quite good. For the most part, it does add a lot of volume and length to my lashes. Most notably, though, this is one of the ONLY mascaras, waterproof or otherwise, that never rubs off on my brow bone. I have fairly deep set eyes, and since the day I started using mascara, I've had tons of trouble with my lashes leaving dots or smears near my brow halfway …Read more

Just got this yesterday, and I'm already a big fan. I read a lot of reviews on it between the time I ordered it and the time it arrived, and I like that reviewers have found so many ways to use it. I can see a lot of potential. I do think it's a product that takes some practice...if you're too heavy handed with it, your face might appear...unusually...bright? But, if you put …Read more

Eye Shadow - Boots - No7 - Stay Perfect Eye Mousse Lilac

Jul/22/2011

I really like this for a few different reasons. It has a great consistency...very, very smooth and creamy, and it is the ONLY eye color of this variety (non-powder based) that doesn't travel on my eyelids. Even with powder shadows, if I don't use a healthy dose of primer first (and sometimes even when I do) the color eventually creases or travels. I had given up on cream/mousse …Read more

This has been on my shelf for ages, and every now and again I pick it up and try to figure out some way to use it...it just never does much of anything. It doesn't work for flyaways, it doesn't give my hair body, doesn't keep it in place...it's just...nothing. And if you don't put the cap back on right away, it continues to squish out the top by itself. Overall, an …Read more

I love this product because it smells SOOO AWESOME. Like a lot of Bed Head products, it smells like candy or something equally sweet. In terms of styling, though, it's fairly average. I use it to give my hair a little body at the roots, but if I use too much, it just gets sticky. Probably not worth the money.

It might just be that I don't care for pencil liners in general, but I didn't think that this eyeliner was anything special. It is soft, which is nice, and is fairly pigmented, but it just doesn't do much for me. It doesn't sharpen well, either, when other pencils DO sharpen well in the same sharpener. I like that it has its own smudger, but so does one of Revlon's …Read more
