Seriously, people over the age of 10 use this stuff? That's amazing. It sat right on top of my skin (which, for reference, is normal-combo and in pretty good shape right now), barely blended, the color (Pink Frosting) was horrific and it was sparkly like something my 6 year old niece would wear playing dress up. I haven't been using drugstore brands for years except for mascara and …Read more

I normally don't hate products. I just don't prefer them and think others work better. That being said, I HATED this mascara. So much so that after a few days of application, I had to throw it out and make a special trip to purchase new mascara. This stuff lengthens - but not in a good way. You're left with a sticky clumpy mess. And when it dries, it dries HARD. It's …Read more

Hmm. Have used this twice now, shampoo and the matching conditioner. It's funny, b/c I am always very skeptical about how much of a difference choice of S & C actually makes with my hair. [Me: wavy dark highlighted hair that gets a teeny bit oily, and is somewhat thick and coarse - lots and lots of fine hair - needs to be tamed!] however...i do think this product is really making a …Read more

My HG scrub! Does a great job at removing flakiness, no scent or irritants, and makes skin smooth and invigorated. I use this about two times a week just to remove flakiness, especially in the winter.

Great color, nice rubber grip on bottle but chips way more than OPI and Essie (who have VERY similar colors!)

First, I want to say I agree with the posters below regarding the brush. It should be wider. The product is a little goopy too; it's hard to get an even stroke without bubbles. That being said, I LOVE this product for particular times and places. I don't use this in place of a regular top coat. It chips too easily. HOWEVER, mid-week when my mani is getting raunchy - especially …Read more

Lipglass in Taupe Notch. I think they've done a lot to deal with the stickiness of the old Lipglasses. This color is a limited edition and PERFECT for a smokey eye / nude lip combo.

My HG lip balm. This stuff ACTUALLY MOISTURIZES. What a concept for a lip balm, huh? This is the original flavor, stick form. Convenient, easy to use, not waxy, goes on smooth, great under lipstick or gloss. Oh, and it doesn't melt in my beach bag or if I leave it in the car. Awesome! Oh, and it's $1.75. Can't beat that!!!
