Surprised at the quality of this product!
I purchased this in Punk Purple. The brush it comes with stinks, so I tossed it as I've got an extensive collective of high quality make-up brushes. This is a smooth, easy gliding product. It's got a decent amount of pigment to it, not too light or too dark, and once its dry it's not going to move around too much. On that level, I've got to rank this product right up there with cream liner from Smashbox. That is high praise indeed.

Every woman has a signature scent, and this one has been mine since several weeks prior to its 2002 release date when a VS employee handed me a pre-release bottle. I was immediately in love and knew that I was no longer a Calvin Klein Obsession girl. The 'girl' grew up, found her inner Very Sexy vixen, and hasn't looked back. This scent is not a musk. It's got vanilla orchid, cactus flower, clementine, pimento, along with several other key notes. Just a whiff of this reminds me why I wear that invisible Superwoman cape every single day. It's strong, sexy, and empowering. Yes, fragrance can do all that. If you feel good, you stand up straighter and hold yourself with more confidence and that's really what it's all about. This one is more than a ten in my book.

Benefit They're Real Mascara
I purchased a full size tube of this without having tried a sample size, which is something I rarely, if ever, do. This mascara did NOT disappoint. Normally I would have to use at least 3 different mascaras to get the desired effect that this one does with two coats. It's a little bit of a pain to get off, but that just goes to show you how well it wears. My lashes look AMAZING thanks to this product. I will definitely continue to use it, but will also continue to try other brands as they come out with new products, just because I'm a product junkie at heart.

Sally Hansen Complete Manicure
Unless you have a lot of time to dry your nails thoroughly (and when I say thoroughly, I mean give it 40 minutes!), I recommend skipping this "all-in-one" product. It chipped way too easily (not even the most inexpensive polish I use chips!) and was so badly scuffed up after a few days that I have no idea how SH can claim this is a 10-14 day wearable polish. Normally I am a big fan of SH products, but this one is not one I can recommend to anyone. If you're going to spend the money on this, you might as well get a bottle of OPI, China Glaze, or Essie and at least that will give you the quality you're looking for.

What was I thinking?
Aside from having a coupon that heavily discounted this item, I think I was drawn in by the advertising and the rich colors. Immense disappointment. These colors don't wear well (I am never without eye primer), flake, can start to cake really easily, and all in all look gunky. I didn't walk out the door like that, but when I came home and looked in the mirror, I was APALLED and have vowed to never buy another Maybelline product no matter how well hyped it is.

Excellent cleansing cloth/make-up remover
I've been using these clothes for a little under a year. Not only does my skin feel clean after use when I haven't worn make-up, but it's excellent at getting my make-up off at the end of the day. With similar products I need to use 2-3 wipes in order to remove all of my eye make-up, but with this brand, only one cloth. It gets all of the mascara and liner without making my skn greasy or leaving sticky residue behind. With continued use, your skin will feel nice and smooth every time you use these. I might try one other natural brand, but I'm pretty pleased with these.

No eyelash curler can beat this this!
I've used so much different eyelash curlers over the years. I've been using this brand for the last six months or so and have NEVER been happier with a lash curler. It doesn't grab my eyelid and I get a beautiful curl with about 8 seconds of pressure. I've got a second one still in the box as "back-up". I will NEVER buy another brand. This one is worth the price, despite being hard to find. Love it!

BioSilk Fruit Cocktail
I've used this product on and off for years. Whenever I go back to it my hair practically breathes a sigh of relief, as it responds really well to all BioSilk products. This product especially is great if you color your hair or have highlights, as it will help smooth your hair out and make it silky and shiny. It's pricey, yes, but can be found for less if you shop around before buying it. All around good product to use,

3 Minute Miracle
I tried this product based off of everyone's reviews on this site. I don't know if I'll be buying it again, but I do like using it on occasion. It smells great and doesn't weigh my hair down or make it greasy. It's a very improved Aussie product.

Clairol Foam Color
I just used this for the first time a few nights ago. It is so much easier than regular color. In fact, I could't even finish the bottle because the foam covered all of my hair leaving about 1/4 of foam left. That rarely, if ever, happens to me with regular hair color. It sets in 25 minutes, but I suppose you could leave it in for another 10 to deepen certain colors. I used the natural Dark Brown and my only issue with it is that it's NOT a true Espresso Brown as shown on the box. In fact, it dried to my natural hair color, which I haven't seen in years! The Natural Dark Brown has red highlights in it, so if this isn't what you're looking for, go with another color or brand. One other issue is that even though my hair rinsed completely clean, the color left residue behind. Plus, this can stain your skin for days, so if it drops anywhere, wipe it off your skin immediately. I don't know if I will use this particular brand/color again, but I will definirely be trying out the other foam/mousse products on the market to see which one works best for me. The gloss conditioner this came with left my hair feeling salon silky, as opposed to "just colored". I wish that product was sold on its own, its great.
