I really really like this color. Really. My best friend and I were browsing and my lips were disappearing into my skin, so i picked it up and thought "Oh dear, that's really dark in the tube" But I got it, and lo and behold, a pretty *polished* color that makes me look more...sophistocated? Older? Classic? I dunno, but its perfect for days when I cannot be bothered to do the …Read more

Blech...worthless. No volume, no flash, just longer lashes, but I can see this thing clumping in the future. doesn't hold curl either. The wand is really small and clumpy, with really short hairs so...eh. So underwhelmed

Horrible Horrible Horrible. UGH! I bought this at the sale and I already own other souffles (LOVE the texture and the mosturizing ability). THis was a great scent in the jar, smelling like roasted almonds. Put it on, and 10min later, I SMELL BURNT. LIKE CHARCOAL WOOD. I had to re-shower to wash it off because it gave me a headache. Either going up in a swap or return. Gross.

Eye Shadow - Flirt - Dreamy Eyes Eyeshadow in Glamourazzi

I don;t know how close this is to MAC stuff, but I will offer my own opinions. This is a beautiful shadow, deep lavender with gold. If it went on my lids that color, I would love it. But its not very pigmented (and when Im buying a shadow for 10 bucks, I want pigment!) so it leaves a sheer wash that is difficult to build up to anything. I applied it wet and it got a bit better, but the …Read more

HG material! Wonderful product! Got my makeup off, even the hard to wash waterproof lash stuff AND has not broken me out. I actually really like the scent and it doesn't leave anything behind. 1 lippie off for being so darn $$$$. I bought the travel size at Sephora for 12, and its gonna last me a while since i only use a quarter size dollop.

Scrubs - Aveeno - Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub

4.0

May/11/2005

I liked the consistency of this scrub the most, since it feels like Murad's AHA/BHA scrub and the tiny particles are not too irritating. However, I think the fragrance, altho really nice, is drying out my skin. I really have to slap on the mosturizer afterwards. As for brightening...eh....not too much but my skin does look slightly better in the morning

I got this off ebay for 30, which is 20 bucks cheaper than dept stores. I agree with what someone else said...very nice cream. Shimmery, pretty. I wear it at night and my skin feels AMAZINGLY soft in the morning...kinda slippery, not so much greasy. BUT, i dunno if I would spend 45 dollars every time I want my skin to be soft. I haven't noticed any dramatic textural changes, no real …Read more

Eye Shadow - MILANI - Eyeshadow in Shock #15

Let me just say, I have never had an eyeshadow make my dark dark brown eyes pop like this. It is sooo amazing. Such a pretty pinky/iridescent blue color. I just got it yesterday and applied in a wash on my lids. It came out a light lavenderish-pink with blue undertones and a bluish iridescence and it brings out eveything in my brown eyes. A navy liner...and I am glamming!

I have this in Durable Denim. I like the color, i like the noncreasing thing, i like the smoothness...but....
I can't build the color up easily. I will apply with my fingers, let dry, then do a second layer...and whoosh, off comes both layers. I end up with smudgy, spotty, bare areas on my lids. Ugh, e/s should not be so difficult
