What a great eyeliner! The liquid formula is magic and/or the brush is fine & high quality so that I can get a fine, smooth line across crepe-y lids. I got some IT Cosmetics hero liquid eyeliner on sale at Ulta recently and, although it is good, I won't be repurchasing, as the Bourjois product is far superior. I have tried Bobbi Brown gel, everything MAC, Kat Von D liquid eyeliner, and …Read more

405 dark blonde dry, nasty greenish-beige. What is this even made of? Mulch? Complete waste of money. I remember L'Oreal eye products being higher quality, but times have changed, apparently. I can't imagine this product working for any human being.

What a stupid waste of money. Didn't have time to shop at Ulta or Sephora and made due with this dog of an eyeliner before a gala. Easily spent 20 minutes trying to get a good line on lids & had to re-do my shadow twice. Thin color, terrible applicator. Whatever the opposite of foolproof is, this product is it.

Forgot to pack my Guerlain mascara and bought this at Osco. My new HG! Excellent quality--doesn't look chunky on the eyelash, builds thickness and length, no flaking, makes even uncurled lashes fan out. I much prefer this affordable product to very, very expensive mascara. No irritation, either. At one point I had to stop wearing mascara, and I had been using Clarins. I hope Cover Girl never …Read more

Lip Treatments - CLARINS - Extra Firming Age-Control Lip and Contour

Oct/08/2018

This is the ONLY product I have ever found that really keeps my lips in shape. Back in the day, I used Body Shop exfoliating lip stuff & their lip balm, cheap stuff, expensive stuff. Only Extra Firming keeps chapped lips away. I smear it all over lip & surrounding skin at night & it reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Makes it easier to apply lip liner the next day. On no-makeup days …Read more

Tried this b/c my Guerlain matte eyeshadow just died on me--no longer seemed to have any pigment? The new Guerlain eyeshadows have glitter in every palette. Just can't wear shine in eyeshadow anymore--looks like snakeskin on my lids. After reading another review here on MakeupAlley, went out to inspect this in person at Saks & fell in love with it--SOLD OUT! Got Dream at the counter …Read more

I've been very happy with It Cosmetics liquid foundation, but was fighting oiliness w/o success; tried the Bye Bye Pores loose powder: too dusty (like the eyeshadow), tried the compact version of the same product, and found it would collect weirdly on patches of foundation (compact fell apart quickly, too). Last ditch effort (and completely ready to return if unsatisfied), tried the …Read more

Not crazy about every single product in the IT Cosmetic line, but this one is good. Easier to make a smooth line across my crepe-y eyelid than other products I have tried; lasted all day through sweat, tears, etc. Very small amount of product for the price, but was 40% off at Ulta this week ;)

Update: I tried Bourjois pinceau eyeliner this week & much prefer it--SO much cheaper …
