The pigment and oily base of this product tend to separate, and require you to constantly shake/mix the tube to keep things consistent. It worked great for 3 months, even with shaking before every use, but then it failed. The only thing left coming out of the tube was a translucent, oily substance that didn't cover anything. This is the second product I've tried by this brand, and the …Read more

I had been using Jane Iredale's cream stick blush before this, which is fantastic. But I went through the product in only 3 months, so I was looking for comparable product in a larger size that would last longer. This has great ingredients and a better cost/ounce, so I gave it a try. The Nude Peach color is exactly what it sounds like-- a nudey peach, which goes well with many makeup looks …Read more

I have two issues with this product that forced me to return it: the texture and color.

This is thick and tough to apply. I tried using a foundation brush first, but the formula just dragged and wouldn't blend properly. Then I used my fingers, which was much better. It seems to leave a nice effect on your skin if you can manage to apply it evenly, with light to medium coverage …

I really hope this review helps someone make an informed decision about this product. I couldn't find any reviews when I first purchased this, so I can be the test dummy for everyone else. :) I was sucked in by the "green" ingredients, but ultimately disappointed.

Most importantly, know that this product really misrepresents itself. It's described as a …

This should be called dermal *upset* cream. So glad I only had a sample of this, because it caused my skin to break out in tiny itchy bumps all over my forehead and under my eyes. It's a week later, and they haven't gone away. Not sure if it's clogged pores, dermatitis, or an allergy, but I definitely don't recommend this product! Looks like others have had the same …Read more

I'm writing this review to remind my future self to never buy this product again.

I've tried this several times over the years, always thinking that a gentle, non-permanent color boost is just what I need. This one just doesn't work for me, for the following reasons:

• It disrupts my curl pattern, making it more difficult to style. My normal ringlets were …

Styling Products - Paul Mitchell - Flexible Style Super Sculpt

Apr/07/2016

OMG, how have I never reviewed this before? This is one of those products that I always come back to anytime I stray. I don't know why I believe the grass will be greener somewhere else, because it never is. Super Sculpt is my fallback, time and again.

This clumps my curls into nice ringlets and provides long-lasting hold and shine. The shine is really amazing because usually my …

This gel is definitely better for curly hair than most on the market and is worth a try. But it just doesn't match the performance of Paul Mitchell's styling glaze for me, which is a similar medium-hold gel at the same price point. Depending on the texture of your hair you may want to try both to see which one works better for you.

Pros:
- Provides some hold while …

Dec/12/2015

UPDATE: I had to knock this down a lippie when I realized it was causing some abnormal breakouts. I started to get pimples on my neck and sides of my face where the product touched my skin (nothing else in my routine had changed). Maybe it's the fragrance? Once I figured this out, I started washing those areas after application to make sure no residue was left behind. It became kind-of a …Read more

I read some rave reviews for this product on the boards, so I took a chance and picked it up during a Costco sale online. They also have a generous return policy, so I knew I could always return it if it didn't work out. I'm so glad I did, because this failed me big time.

Let me say that I'm supposedly the perfect candidate for this type of hair removal system-- pale …
