I have to admit that my eye area is in good shape for being age 49. Apart from my congenital dark circles, which can't be helped even when I'm well-rested, I only have a slight bit of crepiness under my eyes in the inner corner and, knock on wood, no crow's feet. I attribute this to my consistent use of Jafra's Optimeyes and other more inexpensive eye treatments since the age …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara

I was pleasantly surprised with this very inexpensive mascara. Like others have said, it doesn't hold a curl, but then again with my lashes, nothing holds a curl. But it does create thickness, separation, and decent length. Give it a shot. Here in the Greater New Orleans area, I only paid 3.96 plus tax at Wal-Mart. Can't beat that!

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara

I had used the original Diorshow and thought it was pretty good but not spectacular. Diorshow Blackout is, as the SA told me, 15 times darker than the original. And it is. And it's truly amazing with my somewhat straight, not very long or thick lashes. It's been 10 hours since I applied it and my lashes have still held the curl and they're both longer and thicker. All I did was use …Read more

I was very pleasantly surprised with this mascara. I got nice curl, separation, volume and length. No flaking and gorgeous black color. Relatively easy to remove. Slightly less expensive than most department store mascaras at $16. What's not to like? Seriously, give it a try. I think most of you will be glad you did. I was, thanks to the recs of my fellow MUAers. I'll update if things …Read more

In my Slidell Lousyanna Wal-Mart this was priced at 4.53 before taxes.
I was very pleased with the results for the price. I got volume and definition and, surprisingly, not an excessive amount of product upon pulling the wand out from the tube. Here's a tip for everyone who moans about globs of mascara, whether when using Volume Couture or any other mascara: Just have a lint-free pad or …

Nice, light daily moisturizer with at least minimal SPF protection. Will it banish your lines and wrinkles for mature skin (age 40 and up)? No. But if you're looking for a nice light moisturizer, this is wonderful, for the price (below 10 bucks).

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara

Nov/11/2008

To be fair, I bought the waterproof version of Lash Blast by accident. It did make my lashes dark, curled, somewhat longer and volumized, but it was HELL to remove. I have three kinds of eye makeup remover: a creamy lotion kind, a soapy/oily one, and an oily one. The soapy/oily one which usually works the best for tough makeup was no match for it. The lotion kind was no match either. It took …Read more

Nov/25/2007

I am very pleasantly surprised to report that an inexpensive, $6.99 plus sales tax, mascara has impressed me more than the all of the expensive department store brands I've been using for so long now. Believe me when I say I have been hitting the expensive brands hard: Diorshow, Fresh, YSL, Lancome, Prescriptives, etc. The only color left on the Wal-Mart Cover Girl rack was Volume Exact in …Read more

I think if you have acne prone skin and are looking for something to work on the acne without drying you out too badly, this might work. But only if you have acne prone skin!
I have irritated my skin horribly with this stuff. I have dry, itchy skin with itchy red bumps toward my jawline. It's got to be this stuff! I will not use it again on my 40-something, clear skin. Another reviewer …
