In my opinion, this is the only bright red you need. It is a true, beautiful red that flatters all skin tones, fingers, and toes. It is creme-jelly so 3 coats is best. Not thick or chalky... Just a smooth glowing, slick and shiny mani/pedicure.

I am considering finding a dark red, cherry red, and burgundy red just as good from Essie, and loyally polishing my own nails with them, and …

I have very thick, long, wavy hair. I bought this along my gradual at-home "blonde journey"
in a DEMI-permanent: 8A, as well as the cool mix. It should be noted this is the ONLY demi-appropriate cool mix I've found. (review is mostly on the cool mix)

One box+ developer plus 1/4oz cool mix with 1/4 oz developer was NOT enough for my hair and I didn't get a …

I am leaving a TENTATIVE 4 overall lippies and a TENTATIVE yes to repurchase. I'll have to use longer and update.

My story...

SKIN: I'm 29, with overall "good skin" but sun and lifestyle-induced forehead lines and elevens that are certainly 5 years ahead of my biological age. I have stubborn pores on my chin, and on and around my nose. When I break out - …

This is EXACTLY what my hair needs.

I have long, med-thick, very voluminous, wavy, color-treated [caucasian] hair. I realize the first 4 things I said sound like a lot of people's dream hair - and I am definitely happy its FINALLY!!! long - but as anyone with wavy and voluminous hair will tell you, it is so g-d*mn hit and miss. You never know what you're going to get with it …

Self Tanners - St.Tropez - Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse

I am a pale and neutral/cool toned. I have also used the regular St Tropez mousse, and Vita Liberata 2-3 week in medium.

On my PALE skin, this produces a natural result. But I MUST be careful with application.

However, I would warn against using this as a first go at self-tanning. Start with the regular/white bottle, which itself gives good color. This dark version is a …

fantastic product. Has the bendy brush that Maybelline falsies has. On my (curled, and Latisse-treated) lashes, the result with plush, lengthened, and fanned out.

Beautiful effect BUT not the same effect as the advertisement/display puts out (which is more spikey/piece-y).

This is a good product, but is it worth the price? I think it is fair to say that this mask would be at a 80%+ re-purchase rating if it was $10, or even $35. But at $76CDN (and I've seen it for $85CDN), it has a lot of proving to do.

Foremost, I think this is an excellent product. It works quickly, cleanses thoroughly, and the scrub-removal makes it double duty. My skin looks …

REVIEW UPDATES AT BOTTOM!

Firstly the Canadian markup for this product is ridiculous. It's $51.50 at Shoppers which is 20% more than the USD price.Glove is $8 vs $6.50… again 20% more.

Okay, my review.

COLOR: The color is good I am what I guess is NW20, maybe 25 in the summer (gleaned by google image searching NW 20/25) and this developed into a "more …

firstly choosing "yes" to buy again seems a bit silly with all the shower gels on the market. take my "yes" as an "i don't regret buying it"-yes.

alright, this is a good product. the scent just smells clean and feminine. i usually use organic and naturally scented bath products and cant stand cloying/artificial body scents. this kept me happy …

all of their deodorants are simply the best i've used. currently rotating two roll-on varieties. love them. love em all. Would never stray (except to maybe-possibly give a high-end deodorant an indulgent whirl.)
