One of my HG conditioners! I totally love it.
I don't suffer from dandruff, but I have sensitive, somewhat grease-prone scalp and more or less normal long (midback) hair, fine but thick.
Don't be afraid to try this even if you don't need anti-dandruff stuff, it is not medicated, it's just that the tea tree oil & mint are supposed to be calming ingredients that …

Great product, so sorry to hear it's been discontinued.
The brow powder is great for those of us with really dark brows - it's not black, yet it's not too brown either, but a cold, gray-ish dark shade that makes brows look both defined and natural.
The packaging is cool and useful, I'd love to see some e\s packaged like this.
And finally the best thing - the …

I needed to make a special entry for this one since this color is hard to find. Yes, despite the huge amount of pink lipsticks out there, it's difficult to find one that:

- has a bright, cold yet natural pink shade, like a fresh rosebud. Despite its name, it's not mauve at all. Crystal Rose would be a more fitting one. A lot of cold pinks lean towards fuschia, this one …

First of all - why the hell does it say that it's waterproof ONLY on the back of the package, and in tiny tiny letters too? I would have never bought it if I knew that it wasn't normal mascara, and here you can't return makeup to the store.

Overall, not bad if you like natural effect, and the color is a nice true black. It doesn't clump or flake either. But …

Great pink! Cool, fair but not pale - just like a fairytale rosebud. :)
It's silky, doesn't crease, has delicate satin-like shimmer that doesn't end up under your eyes.
The packaging is pretty & useful, since you can see the color of your e\s without opening the lid.
In winter, when my skin is practically white, I also use it as blush - the result is extremely …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Pure Color in So Grey

Sep/03/2008

Useless e\s. It gives a hint of pale gray microglitter which tends to distribute itself all over the lid AND under the eye in a short time. No color whatsoever, and if you try to layer it, you'll get even more glitter accentuating your undereye circles.
I suppose it's not so bad if you like glitter but then it's neither here nor there - the chunks are too large to be …

It's an off-white shade with pale golden glitter. The aforementioned glitter, however, could be a bit more finely milled. Yet I wouldn't say it's too much - it looks quite subtle if applied with a light hand, and it's an interesting shade - not too frosty, not chalky either.

What a lovely set. Chestnut medium brown, gentle salmon & violettish lavender. They make an unusual but striking color-combo, the brown shade can be used as eyeliner.
Another great combo is lavender on outer part of top lid, salmon on the inner, with some bubblegum pink eyeshadow in the middle & subtle black or purple liner.
Both lighter shades also look great as all-over lid …

It is utterly un-blendable. If you use it all over the lid, it's fine, though too frosty for my taste (I have the pearl-white shade). But if you try to highlight the browbone with it, or simply add any other e\s - oi. It simply sits where you drew the line - and it won't budge, won't allow the outlines to be blended, nothing.
Yet with all its stubborness, the lasting power is …

This is the best face case ever, ever, ever.
Eyeshadow:
1) Hotpants - bubblegum pink (can double as blush, because it goes on quite lightly)
2) Polyesther Bride - off-white with pale gold shimmer (basic wash for cool-toned people when applied with a light hand, or you can layer it and get a bold look)
3) Oilslick - charcoal black with fine rainbow glitter (great for smoky …
