Not as thickening or lengthening as Colossal. It's not bad, not worth throwing away, but I'll used this as a daytime mascara when i don't really care, and I'll be going back to the yellow tube of Colossal goodness after this.

I hate the bendy brush too. It makes it so you can't really use the pressure of the brush to comb through the lashes... like if your …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Stiletto Voluptuous

This was such a disappointment. It doesn't really lengthen and it doesn't really volumize-- it it just blah.

You have to use way too much and apply tons of coats just to get this to show up-- those reviews should have been my first clue. I don't think it lengthened my lashes at ALL (not nearly as well as Stiletto original which wasn't that great to begin with). I …

If you want to smell like a chain smoker, this will do it. It actually smells like cigarette smoke.

It is seriously weird.

Better than Pale Pink, better than Orgasm on my NC 20/blonde complexion: my new HG! I looove it. And I just have to use the teensiest bit, so I think it will last forever.

This blush is sooo pretty. I think it's made for darker skintones, but I wear it on my NC 20 skin and it looks great. I do have to use a light hand and a skunk brush. See pic:

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Mascara - Original

I like the effect of this mascara, except it's a huge goopy mess as a result, i think, of the tube opening being too wide for the wand- it doesn't wipe off any excess. You definitely need to wipe off the wand and use a lash comb. Full n Soft achieves the same effect without the goopiness, so I will definitely be sticking with FnS next time.

It's love! Lashes are long, thick, separated and holding curl. The Colossal brush coats evenly from root to tip, like a more dramatic version of Full n Soft or Hypnose.

This is not one of those mascaras that will leave you with tons of product at the base and skinny lashes at the tips. yay!

I have Glam Brown and it's PERFECT. Surpisingly dark and dramatic …

Compared to Full n' Soft, Volume Couture is just okay.

1. it flakes on me big time. since day one! I've never ever had flaking problems with any other mascaras. Perhaps I got an old tube, but that's no excuse, because I have year-old tubes I'm still using without flakies (bad, i know)
2. compared to the dramatic, thick and feathery look I get with Full n …

This is one of the most fantastic colors ever. I can't wear a pink from any other line but Bobbi. It's like she knows something that all other cosmetics companies do not. At least for my NC20 skin, the Pink Berry and Peony (which is slightly brighter and lighter) lip sheers are PERFECTION.
