This is exactly what I was looking for, and possibly worthy of HG status. I wanted a dark black liquid liner that is easy to apply, and can be applied very thinly. That's what this is! Easy, liquid application, very fine line, shiny, and dark. Perfect! The packaging only gets two stars because it's ridiculously wasteful--it comes in a metal case for some reason--and price also only …Read more

Obviously, as the other comments reflect, your mileage may vary, but this is a holy grail for me. Several years post Accutane, I no longer have problem skin, so I don't need to cover up acne, but I do have sort of uneven skin tone and some darker blemishes here and there. This smooths everything out and evens out my skin tone perfectly. I don't look like I'm wearing foundation; …Read more

I really wanted to love this product. It smells nice, it goes on smooth, and it really is an excellent primer. I also like the vitamins/antioxidants. Unfortunately, it is now doubtless that it clogs my pores and breaks me out. After three days of using it, I developed zits on my chin. I suspected this product, since it was the only thing I had changed, so I stopped using it, and in another …Read more

I realize this is blasphemy, as TM is one of the most loved brands for brushes both here and pretty much everywhere, but I was not impressed by this blush brush. It actually deposits way too much blush, in kind of a chunky fashion, so that after applying, I have to blend, blend, blend like CRAZY! with my Stila powder brush. Not really what I expected for $50. That said, the bristles are …Read more

I don't really understand the negative reviews for this. I am a Baumann DSNW (although I suspect she might call me a DSPW because of my easy freckling) and pretty much EVERY sunscreen makes me break out. La Roche Posay sunscreens particularly- I can wear any of them ONCE and have hideous acne the next day. It finally occurred to me that it might be the avobenzone causing the problem. …Read more

Love this! I have *absurdly* thick hair (one time my hair stylist told me I have about 4x the average person's hair) which is also somewhat coarse and dry. It is also wavy, and can tend towards frizziness if I don't take care.

Generally, then, that means I have to use very strong control products on my hair. When I do (like a firm hold gel, for example) I can get great …

This is a review for Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo for Color-Treated or Permed Hair. (I think I've got the right review category, though it's not worded quite the same.

This stuff is fabulous, and being a product snob, I still can't believe this is a drugstore product. However, for my uber-thick, slightly coarse, slightly dry, wavy highlighted hair, this is the …

I so wanted to like this product. I mean, it's designed exactly for my type of hair! For the record, I have unbelievably thick, coarse, slightly dry, wavy, frizz-prone hair. I already have a routine that leaves my curls in fine form, but you know how fun it is to change things up every now and then. Plus, I thought this stuff would rock. Not so much. It made my hair more frizzy, not …Read more

I'm really not sure what this is supposed to smell like. It definitely doesn't smell at all like chocolate. It's not that great. I asked my fiance what he thought it smelled like and he said, "old, watered down perfume." Yeah- I have to agree. I'm still giving it a "3" rating because I love Lush and because the soap itself was good quality- I was just …Read more

This is truly unbelievable. I have dealt with acne issues for years as an adult. I have been working with my dermatologist and am currently on Yasmin, Minocycline, and was using Clindomycin. <p> <br>

Every time we tried something new, my skin would clear up for about 3 months and then go right back to the way it was. It is not that I have/had bad acne- it's just …
