Ok, but not my favorite
This mascara is great for lower lashes and inner corncers but it's slow. It went on a little clumpy, and then is smoothed out (weird). It's not very smooth and made my lashes stick together to look like spikes. It wears well though with no smudging or flaking. I felt like this was a knockoff of Givenchy's global wanded mascara only not as well designed with a poorer formula.

It can be used for us oil scalped girls!!
My skin/scalp is I-need-to-wash-daily oily, so I almost tossed my Sephora sample of this stuff. Because I have to wash, dry, and heat style all the time, my ends get a little on the dry side, so I gave it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised! My hair was silky and soft after one use. Note for oily gals - Only use it on your ends and use as little as possible (you can always put in more later). That way you'll fix your hair without making the oiliness worse. Since I probably only use about a teaspoon of it every 2 months, it lasts a long time, and may be worth the investment to you. If your hair needs lots of serious TLC, you'll go through it too quickly to be worth the cost. It does smell of burnt coffee, but I didn't find it to be that bad.

Good for Everyday
This mascara was easy to use and stayed put all day without flaking or clumping. Very goof proof. I didn't see the dramatic length, thickening, and volume that it claimed (Lancome still wins in those categories), but it did provide natural looking bold lashes. If you're looking for something quick and easy but looks good in the morning, this is for you. If you want dramatic volume/length, use Lancome hypnose/definicils.

Natural Looking Lashes
I found that this mascara made for nice, natural looking lashes. It didn't clump, smudge, or flake. It doesn't do as good of a job on volume and length as other brands, but it's still a good all around mascara.

I wasn't expecting the peppermint tingle when I first tried it. I didn't like it at first, but now I love it. The color is sheer enough that you don't have to be perfect when putting it on (great when you don't have a mirror), but bold enough it gives color to your face. It's quite moisturizing but doesn't last as long as some lip balms I've used. I just wish it had SPF.

This scrub smells great and does an excellent job at exfolliation. It has enough oil in it to moisturize your skin, but not so much that your shower becomes an oil slick. It's a little pricey for scrub though.

Worth it if you have the patience
This brush takes a bit of getting used to as it's different than other mascara brushes (it's a three sided comb). It provides dramatic volume that lasts all day. It takes a little longer to dry (post application sneezes are an issue) and eye poking can result in the unwary thanks to the brush shape. If you don't mind taking it a little bit slow, then Fatale is worth the trouble.

Cheaper alternatives available
This shower gel is, well, shower gel. Nothing more. Nothing less. It doesn't over dry and to quote my husband "smells like a cheap piece of gum." There are loads of equally effective gels out there for half the price. However if you love the intense orange scent, the go for it, otherwise I recommend stopping by your local CVS or Walgreens for your shower gel.

It does a good job moisturizing and smells amazing. The consistency is light enough for summer while providing the needed moisture your skin needs. The smell lasts longer than other moisturizers I've used, and the price is reasonable. A good alternative to the Body Shop's body butter line.

This stuff was ok. It didn't control my acne as well as other brands and there weren't enough beads to make it any good for exfoliating. It did a respectable job at cleaning and didn't over dry. Let's face it, cleanser is on you skin for too short of a time to do any sort of anti-aging. I still prefer Neutrogena.
