Ahhh! I was just thinking about this. Ok. My hair is naturally wavy. I used this --spritzed it on DAMP hair and let air dry-- and my hair would be soft, shiny and the waves perfectly formed and not-frizzy. It was so wonderful. My hair turns frizzy now that I ran out of this a few years ago and it was DISCONTINUED!!! ONLY HAIR PRODUCT I EVER USED!!! Loved it so much.

Luckily, I just …

I'm in love with this foundation. I was matched with #32, Alabaster Beige, but it's a tad too dark. I would probably have to mix shades as #38 is too light. Luckily, the formula is pretty sheer, so it doesn't look awful on me. It just makes me a little darker than I really am. Haha. As I was saying, the weird gel formula is sheer, but offers great buildable coverage. I use my Sonia …Read more

This gloss is RED. When I applied it to my lips out of the tube, I gasped. It's more of a liquid lip color. Its vinyl-like finish is exquisite--if that's what you're looking for. I think it's a good color to have in your kit for those nights you want all eyes on you. I'll definitely save mine for special occasions as I can't see this for everyday use on myself …Read more

I received a sample of this with my latest LUSH order. A tiny little jar lasted me almost a month with almost everyday use, so I'm sure a full size tub would definitely be worth the money. I love this moisturizer so much! Just like every LUSH skincare item, it smells fresh and natural--mostly of lavender. Mm. It's so soothing. My skin loves it and hasn't broken out at all! I …Read more

I've wanted to try this for a while now, but was so scared of the bad reviews, that it was hard to do. When I found this at a CCO, I decided to give it a go. My friend bought one, too. We both love it. She has amazing skin to begin with, so no big deal. I, however, have pore issues and stupid blackheads on my nose. It covered beautifully and didn't look like I have makeup plastered on …Read more

The tube I bought said NEW! on it, and I don't think it's too wet at all, so maybe they've recently reformulated this stuff?

I actually really like this. It's only three bucks, so I thought I'd try it. I wanted something to hold my curl and maybe thicken a little and this does exactly that. I'm very happy with my purchase. Mascara is such a subjective …

My blacktrack has been dried out for a while now, but I haven't gone and bought another just because I haven't felt like going to the mall. So when I was at Target, I remembered how this wet n wild junk got great reviews and I was like, "Ok, Maxine. Let's try that." So glad I did! It's great. Three bucks? Come on! Great value for a great eyeliner. It's super …Read more

This review is for the white handled brush.

This is a really inexpensive, high quality brush. I've washed it a few times and it's still as soft as when I first got it.While it's excellent for powders, I actually use it for blush. It applies a sheer wash of color that just leaves me healthy looking.

This brush is definitely one I use for every eye look I do. It gives me the ability to precisely apply color to the outer v and inner corners. It's also really good to smudge eyeliner into the lashline. For a really sharply defined crease, use this brush!

This is such a gorgeous color. It's pink with a subtle violet sparkle. So pretty!

This is what it looks like on my bare lips.
