    I agree with the rimmel/cg/maybelline

    I however do not agree with Urban Decay! I love them!!

    Also, acetone will take the super glittery nailpolish right off :D

    Oh, I just read that... hahaha

    I KNEW you weren't talking about UD!

    No way in hell UD's are gritty. They are so soft and heavily pigmented and.... *melt* !

    I totally agree with Hard Candy, though!

    Buy the jar that has the nonoily pads. I do, and there is no residue left on my eyes. The oily ones, however, are a different story. Skip Zaparella Boo Boo Zap from Benefit - it's supposed to make your "imprefections" look less red, but it doesn't do jack. And, I have to say, I am dissapointed in Lancome Juicy tubes- they are sticky and don't last for more than 5 seconds.

    i was about to buy a juicy tube today to try them. Actually they won best gloss in a magazine not long ago here in Sweden :lol:

    anyway... here is my list

    nivea sun - caring self tan spray.. one word: YELLOW!! Doesn't matter how I use it. I've I used little, mixed with lotion... doesn't work... and spray? come one.... it was a gift so I'm glad it wasn't my money who paid for this piece of.... :angry:

    every hair product from John Frieda. my hair hate it, doesn't work at all. the purole funky chunky (what a name!) product is the worst. it just makes your hair greasy.

    Nivea all day aqua - it suppose to moisture your skin.. didn't help me at all. It smells, looks, and feels good but doesn't do its work

    Nouba eyeshadows - the colors are very tricky as they have very metallic shimmer in them.

    I'm still a Secret Camouflage fan, NANA. I don't wear it everyday but when I want a flawless face it's still my first choice.

    Hi! Thank you for such a great topic!

    hmm....
    i've used Mach3 before.. but i'm such a klutz that i cut myself every bloody where
    .. thus, i ADORE Venus!!

    things to avoid:
    * Neutrogena - anything - i'm sure it's a great brand, but for me, nothing's worked.. or, i've broken out, and i don't break out easily
    * If you've got dark skin, i'd watch out for anything with Retinol. This stuff made me get dark patches on my skin... even if i wore sunscreen. Ditto for: Hydroquinone.
    * Nivea Creme - in a huge tub... sticky sticky and white like Zinc ointment or something.. yet.. didn't even moisturize
    * Revlon mascaras - for some reason make my eyelashes brittle, or just go wrong. i LOVE Lancome (Definicils or Flextencils), and in a financial pinch i'll use L'oreal's Lash Out. i've been wanting to try Maybelline's Great Lash.. any hints out there?
    * Revlon Skinlights: combo/lipgloss/foundation - ugh! the combo is rather chalky, ditto for the foundation and the lipgloss is gloppy not-in-a-nice-way. i've just tried Rimmel's vinyl lip gloss, and although it is sticky, it's lovely.
    * Revlon lipsticks - haven't tried them in a couple of years.. but they smell and taste yucky
    * i'm not totally dissing Revlon.. i like their powder cream foundation... good stuff!
    * those silly shower poufs.. how do you scrub anything? i like the harsher cloths eg. from the Body Shop. Ditto in the negative re: those hand-shaped scrub cloths - if you wear them on your right hand.. how do you get to scrub your right pit hmm?
    * Body Shop makeup.. just... wrong!
    * MAC foundation/lipstick: totally allergic to them. Maybe b/c they have sunscreen.

    i'm adding this.. stuff to rave about:
    *okay.. you know i'm gonna say it: Venus baby - Venus!! my hubs even likes it more than Mach 3 - and he uses Venus on his face!!
    * Dove Body Wash - Unscented - it's great for EVERY part of your body (ahem) and fantastic for shaving!! it moisturizes more than the 'dry skin' version. Hubs likes this too for shaving his face.
    * someone didn't like this, but i LOVE Olay's foundation stick.. b/c i have really really dry skin, and i'm dark skinned.. and this is the only foundation that goes perfectly with my skin.
    * eye-make-up remover: L'Occitane Blueberry Flower Water (WITH Sorbitol.. the one without Sorbitol won't take it off).
    * if you've got super duper dry skin, that's sensitive.. try 100% pure Shea Butter.. you just need a teeny piece.. about the size of your fingernail... emulsify it thoroughly between your palms and rub it into your facial skin.. wonderful wonderful stuff.. super healthy and natural sunscreen too. if you apply too much though, you'll be all greasy.
    * KMS Paste, Paul Mitchelll Dry Wax - these are great products if you've got short hair and you want chunky funky stylin.
    * for awfully dry skin on the body, i've used 100% Glycerin (vegetable deritive is and works better) but you can get the regular stuff from the First Aid aisle of your drug store. Just use about 1tsp and rub it all over your legs to start. It'll feel rather sticky/greasy at first, but then it seeps right into your skin, and keeps it moisturized all day. It'll also suck the moisture out of the air into your skin. Not recommend for summer.

    tirrah!

    If you look earlier in the thread, you'll see a bunch of us discuss how much we hate it.

    I second the anti-great lash campaign! It's all about loreal double extend!! I got that after I finished this double sided one from japan by a brand called surefit ( from shiseido) and its ALMOST as good.

    things to avoid:
    osmotics triceram- it is suppose to be ultra moisturizing and "healing" ( over $30 a tube!) but it just makes you hot and sticky and itchy!
    benefit lipglosses- they just taste FUNKY
    i havent tried it but i've heard from more than one person that Dove shampoos and conditioners are whack, I like pantene smooth and sleek.

    if you are really pale like me, I've learned to just avoid self tanners altogether. I've tried coppertone to neutrogena to clarins which is suppose to be the best and... it just didn't look right. :cry:

    things to get:
    l'occitane hand cream!!!! the best.
    mac eyeshadows/brushes (not all of them though)
    eucerin lotion
    oil of olay
    ponds cold cream as eye makeup remover

    hopes this helps!
