Oh man. 20-something at Macy's. I used a few times and despite the fact that it is used and I don't even have the receipt anymore, I am returning. I can't even swap this away. It's awful, I cannot inflict this on another person. It gives a shiny cast to the skin that accentuates every pore and there is nothing matte about it. The stay golden seems to have that sparkling …Read more

Absolutely stunning! And I broke it down: less than $.65 per shadow! Holy cow! Anyway, I bought this for 4.99 at Brooks and love it, super flattering on my hazel eyes. Here's how I've used it so far: the color in the upper right corner (I think the one close to stila kitten? not 100% sure) goes on the lid with a fat brush and goes up *almost* to the brow. Then i take the shade that is …Read more

How embarrassing that I still use this considering how darn old it is. But I love it!! Gorgeous deep berry red that makes my face brighten and teeth whiten. Also, love the scent. I need to go find a dupe...

Phew. I found it. The perfect sparkling midnight blue, navy blue, make your eyes pop, almost black but still discernibly gorgeously blue liquid eyeliner I was desperately seeking. Really really nice on my hazel eyes and seems to make the whites whiter (always a plus!). So dirt cheap ($5 at CVS) and the application is just fine. I love liquid eyeliners and find them a breeze (after years and years …Read more

Great, great shade. A less flashy phloof (as far as use not as far as a similar color). Great to hi-lite brow or to use as a basic lid wash to make eyes POP. Wearing this shade today with teal liner and mascara. A nice nude champagne that will flatter most everybody. At Kohl's. $10 or so iirc.

Okay, please ignore any other hair product review I've written. This is my new (and hopefully last) love that does a miraculous job on my wavy, pouf-y more so than frizzy, rebelous shoulder length hair. I use it during humid August days and dry winter days with the same great effect : smooth, loose curls and waves with just the right amount of hold so that the style lasts virtually all day …Read more

Received this in the allure beauty box. Not sure if my great skin the past few weeks is due to my whole regime or due to this product, all I can say is it's not causing any adverse affects and used in conjunction with my other products (drugstore clean& clear foaming cleanser, light spf moisturizer in a.m. and bi-weekly micro-exfoliation) my skin has been very radiant, clear, smooth …Read more

This is an excellent product. I bought the hawaaiian kit for 11.99 at a whole foods and this is my favorite item! It has the spf 30 (stable, schmable, who cares!!), it has a great texture, yummy scent, but the best thing about it is that it leaves a glowy (not shiny) sheen to my face that I just love. Full size is $10, can't go wrong with that!

Make Up Alley actually SAVES me money and this is a prime example. This is a very versatile product, used to highlight brow bone, as an eyeshadow, on cheeks, all over the place, or on your elbows (hey, why not?) It gives a gorgeous glow and enhances other products or works alone. For 3.00, this is a helluva product. You will not be disappointed!
