Love this makeup!
I have been blessed with pretty good skin my whole life, so really what I was looking for was a makeup with medium coverage, that had lasting power. This makeup is not only a great weight for me (not too heavy, but not translucent), but it lasts all day! I'll buy this again and again.

I have stick straight hair, and whenever I want a structured ringlet look, this curling iron always delivers. It heats up to at least 170 degrees (probably more, but I've never had to go above 165, and like I said, I have straight straight hair), and results in pretty ringlets. My friend loved how well it worked for me that she went out and bought the same one, with the same results. I like that it doesn't take too long to heat up, and that it has a locking mechanism on it so that you don't hit a button by accident while you're curling. I didn't remove any stars because I simply can't come up with something that I don't like about it. I've had this curling iron for years now and it's still going strong.

Good product, but doesn't last
I like this balm because it has a hint of color, but not even as much as a gloss. There's definitely a difference when I compare my lips before and after, but anyone looking at me wouldn't think I have a product on--just that I have naturally great lips! I wish it had a little more staying power, though.

Makes my hair look oily
This product would be great for a girl with dry hair. My hair is prone to oiliness, so while it did calm the flyaways, it also made my hair look greasy. I'm not sure I'd use it again.

Great polish, but no greater than Revlon
Essie nail polishes are rich in color and have a great brush that allows precision and good coverage. They are good polishes. That said, I don't find them to be any better than Revlon, which is my favorite drugstore brand--and cheaper by at least a few bucks. If the color you want is unique to Essie, go for it. Otherwise, in my opinion, it's just not worth the money.

Leaves a bit to be desired
Truth be told, I did not use this product--my boyfriend did, and I observed. I have long, straight hair, so this pomade/wax/gel hybrid was not for me. My boyfriend, however, has short, wavy hair in need of some texture and de-frizzing. He has been using a Loreal pomade, which he liked and which I thought made his hair look great, but decided to upgrade to this product. I have to say, I prefer the look of the Loreal pomade better. For some reason, when he puts the Microweb into his hair (and maybe he's using too much), it looks wet for the rest of the day. In my opinion, I really don't like that look, and so I can't give this product more than a 4. That said, it smells great, stays all day, and you get a lot with the packaging. I also seem to be the only person on this site that didn't absolutely love it. If you need a long lasting product, give it a shot (you might be better at hairstyling than my boyfriend is--actually you probably are!), but be sure not to overdo it lest your hair look like you put glue in it.

Not effective for waves
I have naturally wavy-ish hair that I never actually wear wavy because it always looks limp and straggly. I hoped that this product would give my hair that beachy, voluminous wavy look I've been trying to achieve. No such luck. I gave this a 7, despite disappointing results, because you get a lot of mousse, it smells nice and isn't sticky. Also, in all honesty, I can't blame the lackluster results on the product--I've yet to find a product that achieves what I'm looking for. If you have success styling your hair with other types of mousse, give this one a shot.

Not very long-lasting
I found this perfume, like many other reviewers, to be floral and woodsy. I thought I would not like those two characteristics together, yet I actually really enjoyed this perfume. On the negative side, I would definitely recommend that anyone thinking of buying this perfume test it out for a day first, to check its staying power. I wore it for a day of shopping (something that obviously didn't have me sweating off the fragrance) and within hours it was totally undetectable.

I have pretty clear skin to begin with, but I honestly haven't gotten one blemish on my face since I started using this product. I gave it a 9 (and not a 10) only because I still get some small blackheads around my nose--but really, no cleanser has been able to fully get rid of those.

I gave this conditioner a 7 because it wasn't great but it wasn't bad either. There was nothing stellar about this that made me feel like it was catered specifically to long hair. I still noticed many split ends in my hair even after using this conditioner. I can't fault it, though, because no matter what conditioner I use, I always get split ends due to my daily blow drying. All in all, good conditioner but really doesn't do anything to prevent split ends.
