I hate to be the first bad review, but I did not like this mascara at all. I purchased the Very Black Waterproof version. I'm a big fan of the Colossal Volume Waterproof mascara and was hoping this would lend even more volume to my lashes. However, no matter how many coats I apply, this mascara doesn't seem to show up. It looks super wimpy, for lack of a better word. The brush is thick …Read more

I can't say enough good things about this gloss. Yes, $15 is expensive, but this is worth it. It's the perfect milky-pink - not too glittery/shimmery, not too white, pink or nude. It's a gorgeous, Kim Kardashian pink on my pale lips and looks great on people with more pigmented lips as well. It's SO moisturizing that I can use it without a ChapStick base. Plus, it smells like …Read more

I am not a fan of MAC's eyeshadows. This has little color pay off, isn't quite matte or sheer, and doesn't work well as a base under my eyeshadows. For the price, I'd expect better quality, not sheer chalk. I love my Urban Decay Naked Palette and will stick with that from now on.

I have highlighted and lowlighted honey blonde hair and have hard water where I live, so I want to make sure my hair doesn't get brassy. I haven't been using it long enough to tell whether it keeps the brassiness away, but this is moisturizing, smells nice, makes my hair smooth and is affordable. I'll be able to tell better after I get my hair highlighted next, but I am so far …Read more

When it comes to eyeliners, I must say that I really like Maybelline's. I own the Master Drama eyeliner in both Sapphire Strength and Vibrant Violet. Both apply easily, last all day and don't irritate my eyes (which has been an issue for me with purple eyeliners). However, the purple shade is much less intense and really requires several layers before the pigment shows up well. The blue …Read more

I'm a L'Oreal girl when it comes to mascara, but I was pleasantly surprised by this. I bought it on a whim because I liked the "flared" idea. To be honest, this lived up to its claims. It makes my lashes long, volumized, curled and is waterproof. It lasts all day and I really like that the brush has both long and short bristles. It's still not HG, but if I really take my …Read more

This isn't a bad mascara - but I would repurchase. Let me first say that I'm a huge fan of most L'Oreal mascara - they really produce excellent products. However, this was very dry and make my lashes look spidery and stubby. It applied well, but I don't think I'm a fan of plastic-y bristle mascara brushes. I want length more than volume, but even Voluminous (the regular …Read more

I really like this blush, but would give it a 4 instead of a 5 because I've fallen in love with Benefit's Coralista. I'm fair with blonde hair and this looks great on my skin, but Coralista is IT for me. This is pinkier than Coralista and more shimmery, but still pretty. It lasts most of the day and makes me look glowy. Not my HG, but I still plan to use it, especially since was so …Read more

This may be expensive, but it's for a reason. I have fallen in love with this blush. I have fair skin, blonde hair and dark brown eyes and this complements my complexion perfectly. It's a gorgeous coral-pink that goes on sheer and is very buildable. I'd rather have to build my blush than have it be too dark right away. It's a beautiful color that makes my skin glow and look so …Read more

I wanted so badly to like this product. The only thing I'm happy about is that I bought it in a sample size. It smells amazing and the scent does linger in my hair, but it makes my hair staticky, dry and dull. I do not recommend at all.
