Mascara - Max Factor - Lash Perfection in Deep Blue

Apr/04/2007

This is a decent, average, good every day mascara. I have tried it before in black. It goes on well, doesn't flake or clump, but again, I just found it to be very ho-hum. Also, I wanted to experiment a little with colored mascara, so I opted for the blue. Honestly, I can't tell that it is blue. It looks like a dull black to me. And, for someone going for a more dramatic look...not good …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Easy Straight Smooth Finish Gloss

2.0

Apr/04/2007

Not good. Not good at all. I didn't realize how bad until I decided to use my L'anza Straight Line Smoother Straightening Balm this morning (after using the Easy Straight for about a week). The Easy Straight leaves a HUGE build-up on my already oil-prone hair. In fact, I noticed that it seemed to take longer to dry my hair when using the Easy Straight Gloss, but really, it was just …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Vidal Sassoon - Variable Ion Dryer VS519

I didn't notice any difference when using the variable ion setting. To me, it's as good as any other cheap, drugstore hairdryer I've used in the past. The one thing I did like about it was the way the on/off and heat switches were positioned. Very convenient! However, this hairdryer started smoking and popping a few weeks ago, so I tossed it. It lasted two years, which is about …Read more

I didn't care for this product at all. While I loved the coconut scent, after a few weeks, I noticed it was leaving a build up on my hair. I had to start using my clarifying shampoo about twice a week, rather than once. Basically, it weighed my hair down without providing additional moisture.

I didn't care for this shampoo at all. While I loved the coconut scent, after a few weeks, I noticed it was leaving a build up on my hair. I had to start using my clarifying shampoo about twice a week, rather than once. I didn't really notice any extra moisture or UV protection (what is that, anyway?) as promised on the label. Basically, it weighed my hair down without providing …Read more

This is *THE* perfect polish for summer pedicures! It is pink with coral undertones and is very bright. I tried it on my fingernails and it was a bit too much, but it's GREAT for toes! Love it, love it, love it!

For the life of me, I cannot apply this nail polish correctly. It goes on streaky no matter what I do. I've made sure my nails are clean before applying, I've warmed the bottle up in my hand before applying....I'm out of ideas. The color is perfect with one coat, but it's way too streaky for that, so I enevitably end up applying a second coat which makes my nails look very …Read more

Cleansers - Pond's - Fresh Start Daily Wash

5.0

May/19/2006

For an exfoliating wash, it is not harsh at all (especially compared to the St. Ives scrub I was using). It gets all of my makeup off without drying my face, lathers well and smells great! I've repurchased three times since I started using it in December. It definitely hasn't been discontinued like another reviewer posted. I just saw it at Target tonight.

Mascara - Max Factor - Lash Perfection [DISCONTINUED]

I hate, hate, hate this mascara. I really wanted to love it, but I don't. It goes on clumpy and uneven and neither thickens or lengthens. I used to love Max Factor's S-T-R-E-T-C-H mascara back in the day, but all of their new formulas stink. Back to my search.....*sigh*

Cleansers - mark. - clean machine

Jan/03/2006

This product looked and smelled like liquid dishwashing detergent. The texture was very liquid soap-y and it smelled like lemons. It cleaned very well, but left my face with a little bit of tightness. Also, I believe it caused hard acne bumps along my jaw bone. The product claims that it is for 'behaving skin' but I believe it made mine 'misbehave.' I've been using …Read more
