The product itself is fairly expensive for the quality, unless you purchase it on sale. It goes on streaky and I find the second coat of polish or clear top coat tends to strip or remove some of the under coats and leave streaks. I need to put on at least three or four thin coats to get proper colour and each coat needs to dry for quite a while in between. But the worst part - I purchased B Girl …Read more

Bought the bronze shade at Wal-Mart Canada for $6.79. It stayed on for hours, faded slightly but didn't smudge under my eyes. I wear contact lenses and usually have problems with eye make-up running and smearing during the day. I used it as a liner as well as tried it as a shadow all over my lid like the package suggested.
I went back and bought the black one. It goes on dark and stays …

The first few days were good - the "daytime" part of the brush gives nice long lashes (still does) & the "nighttime" look gave nice full ones...but the product inside got thick and clumpy fast. The lighter brush still gives my lashes a nice, almost feathered effect - but the thicker one is a clumpy mess. I've started using a plastic spiky brush instead (from an old …Read more

I've had great luck with this product. I have fine blonde hair that tends to get greasy. I've tried many dry shampoo products out there - powders & sprays - and definitely prefer the spray versions to the powders. I've had no luck with expensive sprays from Sephora - I've liked them all & find they zap grease and give volume, but the applicators tend to clog or stick …Read more

I'm a big fan of this. Moved to a drier climate this winter and found my nails were cracking, splitting, peeling, and chipping right off. This has made them stronger, I'm convinced they're growing faster, and less peeling. The best part is the colour - a pale pink semi-opaque. I put on two coats and it looks like I've done a French manicure. Sometimes I'll even add Sally …Read more

Have only used it once but loved the first try. My hair is thin & frazzled from blonde highlights. Was using Nexxus Dualiste Volume & Colour Protect...realized that I should be focusing more on strengthening and protecting my hair than volumizing it, so shelved Nexxus for a while & bought this. Middle of the road pricing, about $8 a bottle. First wash came out great, using the shampoo …Read more

I've been using this daily for about a year. It shows up basically black, but a bit of glimmer in the pot. I put it on with the MAC angled liner brush so I can go as thick or thin as I'd like, depending on the occasion. I find it stays put all day - way better staying power than any of their pencil liners. It may fade a bit, but doesn't smudge under my eyes one bit. I bought this …Read more

Best mascara I've used in a long time. Stayed put all day, no smudges or flakes - and as a contact lens wearer who tends to blink a lot & rub my eyes all day, most mascaras end up all over my face at the end of the day. I used to use Kiss Me Mascara, similar concept in the tubing but Kiss Me costs about $30 Canadian compared to this one around $10 - and I prefer L'Oreal's …Read more

Nothing great here. I'm trying a few different volumizing mascaras in hopes of getting big, full, almost fake-looking ones that I admire on some girls. Perhaps they have naturally fabulous lashes or are wearing fakes! This one was so-so...definitely bigger than my natural lashes but not huge. Wasn't easy to build up - gets clumpy & spidery after two coats. I find Maybelline Colossal …Read more

Wanted to buy the SPF 15 one because I only planned to use it under makeup to work indoors. My drugstore only had SPF 30 left in stock. $5 off coupon so I purchased anyway - the one downfall is it's quite pricey for a small bottle. But works wonderfully! I put it on in the morning, worked around the house for a bit, went to put on my makeup (tinted moisturizer) to run errands - and realized …Read more
