Great Price! Great Quality
I have used Benefit and Mac lashes, which are good quality. but, I decided to try the Katy Perry lashes. I was surprised at the quality, and they are half the price of Benefit and MAC. I have been wearing the same set for ten wearings so far. I found a secret to make any false lashes last longer. Soak them in eye make remover, put them back on the rounded part of their case, and comb them with a clean mascara wand. I got several of the wands when I sampled a Lancome mascara, and for for several of these disposable wands. By cleaning, then combing the lashes, the lashes are separated and look brand new. I also use the disposable wand when wearing regular mascara, because the wand separates...no more clumping!

Stupidly, I bought this because I thought it was a product to keep your eyebrows in place. Than, I read the instructions, and discovered (very pleasantly) that I can use it under my eyes, under concealer, so the concealer does not slip into lines or moves around after a few hours. I don't use it on my lids because it deposits too much color, making my eyeshadows that are vibrant, look pastel. Not a good look. It comes with a sponge tip applicator, making it easy to apply and blend. If you want your concealer to stay put...this is it!

So Impressed with NYX
This is an incredible lip balm. It moisturizes as well as deposit rich color. There is a good collection of colors, and they look very natural. The price is excellent. I hate when my lips feel dry from allergies; they're not cracked, just dry. So, I reach for this wonderful lip balm that really works and is not greasy like Carmax and others. I have found a product line that does not "cost an arm and a leg."

NYX makes really good products. This palette has a very wide selection of colors that stay, don't stray or crease. I have found the shadows last all day, and as a former user of Urban Decay and Too Faced, NYX equals the quality, and NYX costs half the price of the "prestige cosmetics," and you get more product. I have stopped buying the "prestige cosmetics" after discovering NYX

The Best One Yet!
I am always on a quest for the perfect thickening and lengthening mascara. I saw an ad for Lancome in a magazine, and decided to check it out. I was using Urban Decay Big Fatty, which constantly clumped. I tested the Hypnose Mascara at the Lancome counter after removing the mascara I was wearing. I was so surprised! This mascara not only thickens,but also lengthens. My eyelashes look as good as wearing false lashes, but even better because I don't have to go all the trouble of using false lashes. I discovered something very interesting. The Lancome salesperson had me use a disposable mascara wand to apply the mascara. After I applied it, she handed me another disposable wand, and said to brush it through the mascara. This is THE secret to non-clumping mascara. I used the brush on the Lancome Mascara, and it really separated and also lengthened at the same time! She was kind enough to give me a handful of the disposable wands when I bought the mascara. She said for best results with this mascara, apply one coat, brush with the disposable wand and apply another coat, and brush through again. If you do it a 3rd time...WOW! Long, thick, non clumpy lashes. I highly recommend this mascara.

This is the worst mask I have ever used. Yes, it's black, but big deal. I followed the instructions on the box, and made sure I put on a thick layer, avoiding the eyebrow and eye areas. It is very sticky, which felt awful. I let it dry for 30 minutes, and it never peeled off. It simply was not going to peel, and I had enough of the product on my face so it should have peeled. I did apply it to clean skin. I ended up having to wash it off, and I did not see any luminizing at all. In fact, I noticed no change. My skin looked the same. I have used other masks where you can actually see the visible changes in your face. Not this one. I do not recommend this.

This toothpaste doesn't have much taste, which is fine, but I honestly did not see any difference between it and the Aim Toothpaste I buy at the Dollar Tree. My teeth felt clean, but I didn't see the beginnings of any whitenening at all. I'm going to stick with my $1.00 Aim.

Really Makes Your Hair Manageable
I used the Monoi shampoo, and it didn't suds up much. But, after I rinsed out the shampoo, my hair was so clean and not tangly. The reason I mention the shampoo is because I use the shampoo and conditioner. So, I applied the conditioner, and left it on for about 3-4 minutes while I applied body gels, etc. After I rinsed it out, my hair was unbelievable. I could run my fingers through it with no tangles. After I air dried it, it wasn't fuzzy, and looked really shiny and was more manageable. I curled my hair with a curling iron, and the results were perfect. The curl stayed in for a change. I highly recommend this product.

After wetting my hair, I applied a good amount to my hair, and I was disturbed that it didn't suds up. But, after I rinsed it out, my hair was completely untangly and clean even before the conditioner. I was amazed. Then I used the conditioner that goes with it, and my hair is so manageable; no tangles as all, and when I air dryed it, it wasn't fuzzy or weird, which usually happens. I really recommend this shampoo and conditioner.
