I have repurchased this bottle of miracle stuff for as long as I can remember. One bottle will last me at least 6 months - as long as you THIN it properly when it starts to goop up on you. I use Seche restore, but if you are wary of the chemicals use the beauty secrets thinner at Sallys. Add a couple of drops at a time and then SHAKE. Test the consistency and keep going until it is the way …Read more

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear [old formula - REFORMULATED]

I dont know why I stray from this -- no matter what I buy I end up with DW eventually. My only beef with this is the pump. I had to buy a foundation pump from MAC to fit the bottle. Granted that wasn't a big deal - but it really should come in a pump bottle.

It wears like iron on me - and doesn't oxidize or dissapear throughout the day. I have dry skin and it doesn't …

Treatments - Sally Hansen - Instant Cuticle Remover

4.0

This is a dirt cheap cuticle remover that does it job. I leave it on about 60 seconds and then push my cuticles back and wipe it off. I follow this up with VitaSurge Cuticle Gel from SH - and then moisturize. I have really noticed a difference since I stopped nipping my cuticles.

I don't get the negative reviews for this based on smell - it does have an herbal scent to it - but nothing over powering, and it goes away in a minute or two. This is one of the few sprays I can use to set my makeup and throughout the day without my face flaking or having my makeup run from the spray. I use this at least once a day and my bottle has lasted over 2 months. I'd …Read more

I am on my third tube of this - it lengthens and volumizes better than any of the HE ones I have tried. I buy black, but this does come in brown. I haven't tried the new formula yet but I have ordered one and will update.

Love these pencils. I had been buying Lauder and Lancome pencils for YEARS and then started buying MAC. This pencil blows them out of the water. My only complaint is the range of colors.

The wear was great and it came off easily with my regular MU remover.

I only use this to clean my brushes... This made my sensitive dry skin 10times worse. I won't be buying it again, but I will use what I have to clean the brushes and my makeup sponges.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - All

I own several colors of paint pots - and the EL double wear paints (same thing). They all work well, and I usually frequent the CCO looking for colors I missed. I just pat mine on over UDPP with my fingers and the sheer color balances out the rest of my eye look. I also use them as a liner with a 209.

There ought to be a he!! yes option for repurchase. I got this on a whim after reading sephora reviews. A lot of people were using this on their lips in the winter, and my lips and hands chap year round (very sensitive skin). After one use that lasted all day on my lips they are baby soft and my nails look a lot better than they did this morning.

This is definately a night product …
