LOVE this colour. I'd been searching for a great, deep, dark berry red, and this is it! I like Wicked, but it's just a bit too dark and plummy for me. This one looks almost black in the shade, but in most lighting, you can tell it is a deep RED...not purple-ish or brown-ish, but a pretty berry red. :) My only complaint is that it takes three coats to achieve bottle shade, and the …Read more

Terrible. I tried this mascara because I'd read so many rave reviews, and maybe it works for some people, but for me, it was just SUPER CLUMPY. It weighed down my lashes and bunched them up into 3-4 huge clumps per eye. I tried wiping the brush down a little to get rid of excess product, but that only helped marginally and wasted a lot of the expensive product. I have mixed asian-causasian …Read more

Expensive, but a truly great mascara! It really lengthens and volumizes, and even curls a bit. Formula is a bit wet when brand new, but doesn't try out too quickly like Diorshow. It has a nice, subtle smell (not too perfume-y like Diorshow can be). I bought it in brown because black was sold out, and I am so happy with the colour choice! My hair is dark brown, skin is olive, and eyes are …Read more

I hate foundation and never wear it...instead, I use this! It is so light that I don't feel it, and the coverage is sheer and very natural. I use my fingers to apply it just to my nose and a little on my forehead right between/above my eyebrows. As another member mentioned, I think finger application is more sanitary and allows you to better control where the product goes and how much you …Read more

-sigh- This is a toughie. I think it's really a love it or hate it product, and I can side with both camps...

PROs:
-When it's brand new, it make my straight lashes (I'm Spanish/Asian mix) long and curly and beautiful. I don't even use my curler with this mascara!
-When it's new, it doesn't clump
-Smells …

I love this colour! I was looking for a sheer, natural pink, and this one delivered. :-) I was a little put off by how pepto-Barbie pink the tube looks, but it applies very sheer, and the effect is totally natural. It makes my lips (which are already naturally a bit pink) look "blushed" but still neutral. Recommend!

I like this gloss a lot, but I had a hard time deciding whether or not I would really buy it again. I said yes, but I'm still not sure... This is very pretty (and fun to look at!) in the tube, and maybe even a little scary (waaay glittery--think Middle School sparkles), but comes out very sheer when applied. I only use one wand-full per application because it is very high shine, but I like …Read more

Gorgeous colour!! I love the different effects this shade has in different lighting. It ranges from dark brown in the shade to sparkling deep garnet/ruby in the sun. It is truly beautiful. I applied two coats (with base and top coat), and it lasted me 5 days without chipping. A sales associate at Club Monaco asked me where I'd had my nails done (chez moi! hehe) and wrote down the colour so …Read more

LOVE this polish! It is opaque in the bottle, but comes out very sheer when applied. Two coats makes the nail look super shiny, and natural--there is just a hint of milky white and the teeniest hint of shimmer of you look REALLY hard in the sunlight. It smells different than most polishes (maybe that glue-y component that another member mentioned). Overall, the perfect polish for natural, shiny …Read more
