This stuff is great. I recently had my first-ever manicure and this was part of the procedure. I'm not sure what OPI's definition of 'completely dry' is; you can definitely still gouge your nails after five minutes if you've applied two or more layers (basecoat, polish, topcoat). It does help speed up drying time, though.

Got this as a sample from Luxe Box. (Apropos of nothing, they never seem to get my colours right.) Do not like the colour at all, but it's a decent polish.

I had my hair done (cut, highlights, flat-ironed) and - as usual after leaving the salon- it looked great; more importantly, it felt great. It was smooth, shiny and silky. I later washed and styled my hair myself and it felt rough and dry. I went to the salon and spoke with my stylist. She told me this is what she has used, so I bought it. It's more expensive than the products I usually …Read more

The first couple of times I used this product, my hair felt dry and straw-like. My stylist had recommended it because my hair was pretty damaged, so I persevered. I now use less of this product and after I spray it, I run another pump of Moroccanoil or Kerastase Elixir Ultime through my hair before I use my flat iron. This seems to have solved the dry straw problem. I have also noticed that …Read more

Eyeliner - Annabelle - Smudge Paint - Plummy

I bought this after the saleswoman showed me how it did _not_ move off the back of her hand; she rubbed and rubbed and it didn't budge. Against all the skincare advice I've ever received, I slept in my makeup (this eyeliner) in order to test it. It's great. In terms of daily wear: like another reviewer, I have oily skin and I am seriously impressed at the staying power of this …Read more

Waste of money. It bleeds and it runs and/or disappears when you apply a top coat. What a disappointment; I really hoped this would make applying tips easier. I will save it for my scuffed black shoes; thanks to Menolikepolos for the idea.

I am in the minority here, so it seems. I've just used the conditioner, the shampoo and the penetrating oil for the first time. My hair looks and feels great and it's very shiny. Mind you, I LOVE the Moroccanoil line; the smell sends me to a happy place. The smell of the Organix products does not compare, but the overall effect certainly does - and for roughly one third of the …Read more

I bought this in 'Downtown Brown.' I'm not a fan of the packaging; I'd prefer to be able to see all four colours at once and have a bigger mirror. Other than that, I found the coverage to be decent/average, with or without a primer. It's pretty. I agree with mehak455 completely, though; I think I could find the same colours for less money in another line, but the combo …Read more

Jul/16/2011

This product smells great. Other than that:
- it's a pain to get out of the bottle, even after I took out the plastic thing at the end
- I needed to apply LOTS in order to see anything and I have fair skin
- it didn't "dry" completely; I mean, it is an oil, so I didn't really expect it to, but I would not recommend wearing light colours or being around …
