Ditto! I love mine. On “regular” days, I wear lash stiletto, but use Dior DiorShow Extase on those special occassions. The last stiletto is SO good when you combine value, non-clumping, lash separating and defining!

I like MAC mascara too, especially dazzlelash (I ADORE the little tiny brush!). I don’t know why everyone hates it so much… although, I think I’m pretty easygoing when it comes to mascara; as long as it doeasn’t clump or flake off or run all over my face I’m happy with it.
I know I could be spending a lot less on my mascara if I went for a drugstore brand, but it seems like all the inexpensive ones that everyone raves about are made by companies that aren’t cruelty-free.

MAC zoomlash. I got two of the sample sizes from the online codes, and I’ve heard so many people that hate it, but it works really well for me. I actually use it in combo with Rimmel glam eyes (which I hate alone) and it works awesomely!

I got this one also. I’m wondering if it’s because it’s a sample that’s why mine is not working beautifully as I would expect from MAC. I even love my Maybelline Mascara more than MAC Zoomlash.

my two favorite mascaras are actually mac mascaras – plushlash for volume and pro longlash for length.

i donno… to me mascara is mascara. i know that every mascara is different, i’ve just never found one that i couldn’t work with.

MAC mascara for me too, I love Mascara X 🙂 (For reference, I also like MUFE Smoky Lash and Lumene Excellength, after trying almost every mascara out there…)

MAC Zoom lash mascara. no clupms regardless of how many coats i apply, gives me looong, natural looking lashes and it helps keep their curl! Love it!!

any powder concealer. my eyes are pretty deep set, and i have hereditary dark circles so cream concealer does nothing for me. i usually use a full coverage powder for under eyes. that is, until i found Amazing Cosmetics concealer! its the only liquid concealer that works on me.

I think I would have to agree with you, Christine. Many people dislike MAC mascaras but I’ve never really had a problem with them. I really love Splashproof Lash, Zoom Fast Black Lash, Studio Fix Lash, Plushlash, Fibre Rich Lash and Mascara X.

I agree with MAC mascaras. I love PLushlash and Zoomlash. Though, I think Zoomlash adds that little oomph to my lashes. Also, MAC foundations get a horrible rep, but I love Studio Sculpt so much.

Same ! I heard bad things about MAC’s mascaras before you advised me to try PlushLash and now i’m in love with it !!
I don’t know what people have against it. I never had such dark lashes easily. And it’s not really too thick so my lashes are feeling lighter than with other mascaras !

I know it is old school — but I really like the Maybelline eye makeup remover (the kind for waterproof mascara). It is cheap and it does the job!

Maybelline’s Great Lash mascara. For me, it actually is a really great lengthening mascara. that, combined with a little bit of volumizing macara, and voila! false lashes! everyone else seems to say this mascara is the worst thing ever invented, but i actually quite like it! doesn’t clump on me at all! no spidery lashes here!

looking at everyone else’s responses, i think we really can’t judge mascaras based on other people’s reviews. seems to be a very subjective product! what works for one person truly might be the failure of a lifetime for another. interesting…

I agree! My only problems with Great Lash are that it smudges under my eyes, and it’s a pain to remove without stinging…but I really like the way it looks at first.

Proactiv-I get the results I need using it every other day. I get the most compliments on my skin when I use this stuff! I stray but always come back to it.

Drugstore mascaras! I’ve tried so many high end mascaras and none of them have yielded better results then drugstore mascaras. My faves are L’oreal Voluminous, Double Extend, Double extend beauty tubes, CG Lash blast, Maybelline Lash Stiletto

Haha, there’s loads! Mac mineralize eyeshadows, blushes and skinfinishes, Givenchy Phenomen’eyes mascaras (fantastic, especially loving the purple LE one!), Guerlain Le 2 mascaras (read some really bad reviews on them, I think they’re great), etc.

i use mac x and i like it! it’s ok, i bought it twice after all! but i love love love maybelline great lash!!! it’s so thickening and lengthening and black!!!! i love it!

Sally Hansens’s nail polishes
They may not have the BEST colors if I compare them with china Glaze’s for example, but they promise to take care of your nails while painting them and it has worked for me
All the other brands destroy my nails =(

Mac Shade Sticks here too. They might be a bit difficult to apply in colder weather, but once it warms up and on lid, they are seamless on my eyes.

Okay no people down in the south bash this but maybeline black brown and liner brush I am talking the pencil ones that you get in a double pack

Clinique everything…I’ve used it for over 25 years and my skin is wow. Yes I am that much older but my skin is great and their makeup is great too.
