Do some of these people work for Revlon or something?? Seriously, 12 hours? Its good but I would jump for joy if this lasted over 4 hours! I use a sponge and it goes on pretty great at first, but it starts to go away in weird amounts. And if you rub your face on someone's shirt, you will of course see your makeup there. I guess some people are using some kind of paint primer on their face if they're saying all these great things about its staying power! Its definitely good for the price though.

Goodbye Shu, hello ELF!
I actually bought the Shu Uemura for $20 and I had to return it! It bent my lashes and they went in different directions so I stuck with my Revlon curler. But I decided to buy the ELF curler for $1 and I am soo happy with it! It feels exactly like the Shu Uemura but this actually works and the curl holds soo well all day...even though my lashes are stick straight and point down. Just a few pumps did what I normally get after 10 minutes of work. It is wonderful and I have to buy another one because I gave mine to my mom!

Not for sensitive skin
I am very acne prone with sensitive skin. I was so eager to use this hoping it would calm down my breakouts and moisturize those really dry areas. After a few days of using this I started to notice I was getting red bumps in an area where I had never had any blemish or dryness. I kept using it and the bumps multiplied and became red and started spreading. I was so disappointed in this product. I can't believe it gave me some kind of rash/breakout. This has never happened to me before and I will obviously never buy this again. Be very careful if you have sensitive skin...If it says "all skin types" its probably not for you.

my go-to mascara
greaaat everyday mascara. my lashes are super straight and after i curl my lashes i apply this and its the only mascara that agrees with my the curl! i bought it as a buy one get one free and this was the free one. the other one was another maybelline mascara for XXL curl or something. it was horrible and weighed down my lashes so much. so i gave this a shot and it curled and thickened and gave me length. yay! and if i add more i can definitely make this more dramatic. comparing it to Diorshow mascara, this one is much better for me, and that Diorshow brush is ridiculously large. but whats up with all the different looks this mascara tube has? sometimes its black, sometimes silver. i've seen the same waterproof one in both colors...weird. but this is my official mascara!

Not for sensitive skin
I have extremely sensitive acne prone skin. my skin will be dry for a few weeks then oily for the next few for no reason at all. i was looking for a good moisturizer that would calm my sometimes super red cheeks and wont hurt my sensitive face. i don't know whose bright idea it was to put a strong fragrance in a product for sensitive skin. when my face is flushed i put this on and it burns! its not a good burn either...i get more red and it stings. its pretty greasy too so it takes quite a while for it to fully absorb in the skin. when it does its alright and it doesn't break me out...but gosh it burns.

so i think this is pretty good considering its a friggin' dollar! hello! it covers well, but i gotta say its kinda hard for me to blend it with my concealer brush. i use it to cover redness or a blemish, and it covers the blemish but then i have to blend around it and that gets tough. like it doesn't want to! lol. also it doesn't stay on that long either. but sheesh for a dollar..come on.

i really like a lot of the colors they have to offer. some are strong and bright and others are neutral and go on nice and thick. they last for a pretty long time on me. of course, if you rub your eyes it might not last! i got them as a buy one get one free...which ulta has constantly. great deal!

Not for straight lashes
I bought this because I heard good things about how well it defines and lengthens lashes. I have very straight short lashes and I always have to curl them with my eyelash curler for, i'm not kidding, about 5 minutes or else they're just gonna look like they're leaning over. They sell this at Kohl's so I went and tried it out with the little mascara wands for testing and it looked like it would be a great everyday mascara. But when I took it home and used this wand I was really disappointed. It totally straightened my curled lashes I worked so hard on! haha. But it could just be the wand..At least the lashes looked thick and long, and the tube is nice to look at. But for $14 it wasn't worth it to me.

NO SIGN OF SUN!
This product did wonders for me. Any other sunblock I've used always burned my very sensitive fair skin. I sprayed this all over before my 13 hour day at Disney World, and at the end of the day my skin looked exactly like it did when I got there. I would normally want to get some sun, but dr.'s orders said not to. I used the SPF50 and I only needed to re-apply once because of how soaked I got on some rides. Yes, after several hours and re-applying, the skin does feel a little like hairspray on the skin. But seriously, who cares? You shower after, problem solved. But you're definitely getting protected with this if you use it right.
