I'm thinking that the ONLY person in this thread that rated this product a "5" must either work for Deborah Lippmann, or she got the ONLY good set on the planet. Regardless, this was a colossal rip-off for me. I paid $45 for the Gel Lab Pro base and top coat, and both times I used it was an epic fail. You live and you learn: Expensive doesn't always mean better. Both times I …Read more

I have two CLEAN fragrances: Skin and Warm Cotton. I love them both, but I wish they would stay on my skin for more than 5 minutes. I don't know if it is the weather, my skin, or what... but neither fragrance has any lasting power on me, which is very disappointing. The price of this perfume is not cheap, and I bought the smallest-sized bottles! Skin is more musky on me than Warm Cotton …Read more

I think CLEAN Warm Cotton smells wonderful, and I typically gravitate towards these types of fragrances. I like Pure Grace and Amazing Grace by philosophy, Derek Lam's Silent St., Estee Lauder White Linen, and Calvin Klein Eternity. All of these fragrances, IMO, are of the same genre. My only disappointment with Warm Cotton is the lack of staying power on my skin for some reason. All of the …Read more

I was not impressed with this eye definer when I purchased it many years ago. (It also didn't help that the salesperson who assisted me all those years ago was a snob who gave me lousy service.) Fast forward to 2019, and I was about to throw this away because I never used it since my initial trial when I wasn't impressed. I thought I would give it another try, and voilá! Magnifique! I …Read more

Eyeliner - Jordana Cosmetics - 12 Hour Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil

Great reviews for this and it turned out to be a terribly disappointing purchase for me. The pigments do not transfer to my waterline, and then it causes my eyes to water. My eyes water so much it washes the product clean away! Unfortunately, I bought one in black and one in brown, and they’re both going in the trash. Thank goodness they were cheap!

Excellent mascara for volumizing, lengthening, and emphasizing my lashes! The first few times I used this, I was amazed by the “doll lash-effect” this mascara gave me. It looks like I am wearing false eyelashes when I use this. I realize that- for whatever reason- mascaras don’t work the same on all people; but for me? This one is wonderful! My daughter loves it, too.

I have been using a sample of this mascara and I am blown away by it. It instantly gives volume & length to my lashes and looks as if I am wearing false eyelashes. It does not flake or smudge on me throughout the day like some other mascaras I have used. My only minor complaint would be that I have to use an eyelash comb (sometimes) to unclump a few lashes here and there; but other than that …Read more

My new favorite eyeliner for my waterline. I have sensitive eyes due to allergies and oily lids. This eyeliner applies easily & painlessly to my upper waterline and lasts all day without stinging, burning, or causing my eyes to water. This is a great discovery for me! I have always used high-end pencil liners on my waterline (e.g. MAC, Bobbi Brown, Estée Lauder), but most caused my eyes to …Read more

I think this product is going on the extinction list, but I was able to get one online from Bare Minerals in brown black. I read that this was a top-five-rated eyeliner for the waterline, but it is not so for me. This made my sensitive eyes water and sting, and it wore off in the outer corners of my eyes. I still had some product remaining in the middle of my upper waterline after 8 hours, but …Read more

10 stars if I could!!! ** My NEW favorite mascara of all time ** I have always had good luck with Maybelline mascaras, and Stiletto was my HG for over a decade. I tried this one and it blew me away! Goodbye Stiletto; HELLOOOOO Snapscara! Now when I use Stiletto, I feel like it is not doing anything for my lashes for some strange reason. Snapscara adds length & volume instantly- without …Read more
