The color in the bottle in a misrepresentation of how dark this actually comes out. My biggest other complaint is that it came out gloopy and did not dry to a glossy finish even though I did not touch anything for a long time (and this was a brand new bottle). It is an attractive color but not quite what I was expecting. The way it looks on the photograph only occurs with bright light shining on …Read more

Real disappointment! Expensive but leaves my hair dull and heavy/oily looking.Probably the worst shampoo I've tried in a long time.Too bad I bought it online so don't think I can return.

I've tried two other smudgesticks in Lionfish and Moray and liked them a lot. They were smooth, vibrant and applied in easy creamy strokes. Was excited to see a new color added called Triggerfish described as a gray since I love gray e/liners. Definitely disappointed. This is a metallic medium silver gray, not charcoal as it appeared on the stila website swatch. Application is a little …Read more

I am really happy with this! I've used prescription acne meds like Duac that were not as effective as this. With 2-3 days of using this my pimples fade away. Unfortunately, my 14 y.o daughter swiped it off me since it is also very effective on her! Have to buy another tube

OK, so the previous two reviews describe this polish as either "totally opaque" and "sheer." So which one is it, you ask? Never mind that I picked up two completely diff np at my salon, one milky pink and one corally pink and they were both labelled "hard to get." So basically I have no idea how many different hard to gets there are out there but I did get a …Read more

Agreed pretty much on everything with the reviewer below. It is a very pretty sheer plum, lasting a little less time than a regular lipstick. Reminds me of some more pigmented glosses. Feels silky and luxurious. But I would not purchase again. I wanted to try a Coco Shine and it's very nice but not worth $32 plus tax, IMO

So I love grey automatic eyepencils and i love Lancome so this was going to be a real winner. Wrong! It does not apply very smoothly, hard to draw a thin line (I can live with that) but it only lasted 5 hrs or so. My Revlon colorstay e/l in charcoal works so much better for 1/3 the price. It is a nice shade of grey but application is poor

I have been anxiously awaiting this reading all those reviews about the smell. Well, my set is here. I feel like the truth is somewhere in the middle - yes, there is a smell. I don't think it's horrendous. I think that the tray has an unpleasant smell but I was not going to keep the pencils in the tray, I just don't have that kind of storage space so I was going to move the …Read more

I adore lipglazes - I love how they feel when applied, the whole clicky thing, the shine. Mandarin is not my favorite shade, too bland with little to no color but it gives a natural shimmer. Not as gorgeous MLBB as, let's say, raisin but pretty enough. I am so tempted to get the holiday set from Sephora now even though I still have like 6 or 7 untouched lip glazes

very good value, solid conditioner - feels good on the hair, does the job very well, leaves hair shiny and silky. got the seal of approval from my very picky husband who usually buys himself super-expensive hair products.
