I am 60 and used to have dark brown hair and brows. My hair has faded to lighter brown (not much grey though) but my brows....OMG..they are growing in white. Generally I tint my brows (and lashes) with Refectocil dye. However, they do fade after about a week and that's where this brow gel steps in. It colors my brows and tames them (as much as any product can as I have most unruly …Read more

What a gorgeous lipstick. On me it's a mid tone rosy mauve with just enough shine. The shade goes well with my pale complexion and light brown hair. I don't bother with lip liner with this lipstick, it is easy to apply and I love it as much for every day as I do for a night out. It is pigmented, feels moist/non drying and doesn't bleed at all.

This product has been hyped lots and I caved in and purchased a travel size bottle. I liked it at first, it seemed to clean off all my makeup efficiently. However, once I was done my skin felt like there was a film on my face. I had to go rinse my face with water. I used it a few more times, it was handy when I was on a three day beach vacay but again I hate the feeling it leaves on my face …Read more

I had been looking for a smooth, matte mid tone grey eye shadow and this is it. It's darker than dove grey but much lighter than charcoal. It's a smooth though slightly dry formula and applies easily. It is very neutral, neither overly cool or warm and coordinates well with a number of my other shadows. It is also perfect for a quick, simple look with MAC Blanc Type and grey liner. …Read more

I am a MAC girl but somehow this shade eluded me. I think without really checking it out before I assumed from the name (blanc) that it would be chalky. I had used Brule for many years as a base over MAC Paint Pot (Soft Ochre) but bought this last spring and I love it. It has kind of replaced Brule to be honest and I have gone through many pans of Brule! I am retired so don't wear as …Read more

I have this in Black & Grey. Both are excellent. The black is very pigmented black, the point on the liner is good for doing a thin or thicker line, it is long wearing. I had been using Geisha Ink black liner for a long time and this has replaced it as it is tenacious and also has more pigmented, blacker formula.

The price is right too. For a softer daytime look, I like the …

Disappointing buy. Got it on impulse as I wanted a purple liner. I used to use Bonne Bell pencil liners that were 99 cents and far superior to this. It does not give a defined, pigmented line. The only way I can use it is to lay down a line of thick color above my lashes and blend a bit then do a thin line of black or grey liquid liner (L'Oreal Infallible The Superslim which is awesome) …Read more

I use this on my granddaughter’s hair. She has very light, buttery blonde hair & when she & her folks moved to an acreage with iron rich well water her hair turned brassy pink. She hated it as kids called her Strawberry Shortcake:). Anyway I found the clarifying treatment at Sally’s and never looked back. Now that she’s 14 she does the treatments herself & it’s amazing how it sucks …Read more

I received this fragrance for Christmas and was initially a bit apprehensive. I am 58 years old and not fussy about a lot of "new" (read created after 1990:) fragrances. Lately I have been all about fresh & citrus-y fragrances.

This one is lovely though. Not too sweet and not too sharp-very well balanced. Fresh while also feeling warm. It had a hint of powder but not …

I've been using this for probably 10 years if not more. I use it to tidy my eyebrows, my chin/upper lip and also my armpits. Saves me a ton of cash I used to spend at estheticians.

I don't really like the smell of the newer incarnations but it still does the job. I rarely use on my legs as with the amount of leg hair I have, I could just tweeze. I got my legs waxed for …
