  • N.Y.C. New York Color Extra Shiny Top Coat

    Until they changed the formula or something. I thought oh it's been an unusually hot summer, maybe the stores' air conditioner just isn't up to par and this bottle was affect. I bought another one from another store later on...same problem--the top coat would chip off in PIECES the day I apply it or the next day at the latest. I expect my home manicures to last at least 4-5 days, if not more with the right top coat. Prior to this issue, I was a faithful user of this product for YEARS. This polish gives you that *still wet* look, but now it's just not worth it since it doesn't last a day. Skip it! SO disappointed.

  • Sally Hansen Hard as Nails

    I have the original clear and a tinted version. My nails felt protected as they would crack/split a lot less, unfortunately my manicure didn't always survive the dry time. I've noticed this problem with the tinted version more often than the clear one. After painstakingly painting my nails and admiring the job well done, I let it dry for over two hours, then go to sleep...only to wake up to nails with imprints from my sheets. They FELT dry to the touch before going to bed! Halfway through the bottle, I'm starting to notice bubbles forming near the top of the nails as well. I'm going to stick with the original clear version thank you very much!

  • Rimmel London Lycra Lash Extender Mascara

    Most lengthening mascaras don't seem to work for me since I have long lashes to begin with. So while the product promises 60% more length, I received about 10-20% only. I noticed 0% curve out of the 50% it boasts. I'm giving it an average rating because it does define and darken my lashes at the very least. If I'm not careful, I end up with a couple of clumps. Sometimes it flakes off a bit throughout the day--annoying. This formula is not waterproof, which takes away another star.

  • China Glaze Nail Lacquer with Hardeners

    If it weren't for the color I wanted so badly, I would never have tried China Glaze. I'm big on buying drugstore brands on sale (i.e. Wet n Wild, NYC), but even though I got this on sale it was still around $5. I kept telling myself, it's a beautiful color (For Audrey) and there are nail hardeners! It took about 5 days before it started chipping--I'm really hard on my nails though. While a lot of people can get away with using only one coat, I found that it was still a bit streaky/thin so I had to use two. Maybe I'm just not loading the brush up properly.

  • Nivea A Kiss of Shimmer Pearly Shimmer Lip Care

    ...but is not my favorite lip balm. It has a nice scent, but my lips are usually red to begin with so this just adds an unwanted pale pink layer to them. I gave it 3 stars because it does indeed go on smooth and I do like the smell. Please note that this product does NOT have SPF in it.

  • Too Faced Lash Injection

    I bought this item because it boasted length and volume. I'm definitely happy that I was only stuck with the trial size. Not only did the formula smell like the product was expired, the mascara only really lengthened my lashes a little bit. Maybelline's mascaras give me better results! The volume was subtle as well! Total disappointment, will never be purchasing this particular one again.

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Parisienne Eau de Parfum Spray

    I immediately liked the light rosey scent, but like many other reviewers noticed that it pretty much disappeared after a couple of hours. It had more of a floral scent on my skin and it never became another scent as it faded away. Other perfumes that I like are Juicy Couture's and Vera Wang's "Truly Pink".
