After I severely damaged my hair with bleach I dyed it black to make it appear somewhat healthy. My hair was so thin i was scared to do anything with it cuz it constantly broke :(
What is the SAVE option for. If next years version can not read this year why bother saving those 3000 mile trips you make with your Dad to redo with your kids?
I was so excited over this item I bought two - one for my 8 year old son who is a science enthusiast and one for my nephew. I was disappointed to find the amount of "assembly" required. I am no slouch - I have over 40 years of electronics experience and am even building a house, doing all the plumbing and electrical myself. But assembling this toy was just a drag. The worst part was having to manually wind the wire around the paper tube to create a tuning coil. It was difficult to do and my 8 year old was not even remotely interested in even watching me do it, forget his ability to participate. At one point the thing slipped out of my hand and all the wire came off - if it weren't for a lot of patience and luck, that would have been the end of the thing because the wire normally would be completely and irreversibly tangled at that point. Henceforth I kept a rubber band just behind my work in case it slipped again. Then the wire ends had to be stripped with sand paper. Then the wire connections were made in tiny screws with nuts - LAME. The "connecting wire" was insufficiently stripped to bend per instructions. The instructions were obtuse and overly complicated. Really it seems like an imbecile engineered this thing. I was so upset I got it for my nephew. I found out that my brother in law lost his grip on the thing while winding the coil and the entire thing was ruined - useless. Coil should be pre-wound and ends stripped. Connections could be made easily with little pre-mounted SPRINGS (hello, SLINKY corp???). It's not rocket science, guys. What a rip-off. I am never buying ANYTHING from this manufacturer ever again (unless it's a slinky). I have never written a negative review about a product before because who has time for that. But this was an absolute JOKE. No kid could assemble this damn thing.
This past year I have become a bit of a makeup junkie, purchasing several high-end products for the very first time. Most of these purchases have been in the form of MAC eyeshadows, which retail for either $11.00 or $14.50 each (depending on whether you get them in a pan or a pot). Because I began spending so much on eyeshadow, I wanted to make sure that it would not fade or crease throughout the day. I was getting recommendations for both Too Faced Shadow Insurance and Urban Decay Primer Potion, but because they are the same price and have equally favorable reviews, I went with the less complicated packaging and chose Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Overall, I give TFSI a rating of 4. Not only is the tube super convenient, but the product sticks to its promise of prolonging the wear of eyeshadow by preventing creases/fading. And for those of you who are wondering, this product isn't just designed for higher-end shadows. Many of my drugstore shadows display an increase lasting power and become super blendable when applied over a thin layer of this. And because TFSI is tinted, it also evens out eyelid discoloration and makes the eyes look a bit brighter. Sometimes, if I do not feel like putting on eyeshadow, I will just apply a small bit of this to make me look more awake--it's a bit like foundation, but with a MUCH thinner consistancy and only for your eyelids. Because a little goes a long way (you will only need a small dot about half the size of the head of thumbtack), TFSI lasts for awhile. I have had mine for four months, and even though I use it up to twice a day, the tube is still very full and shows no obvious signs of heavy usage. However, though my rating is positive on the whole, I do have one complaint. Whether this is the fault of the company, just a faulty product, or due to improper storage I am not certain, but my tube of Too Faced Shadow Insurance often gets very watery. There have been many times (at least once or twice a week) when I go to squeeze on the tube and only a clear, watery liquid comes out. A second squeeze usually warrants better results, but I find this kind of annoying for such a pricey product. As I said, this may be totally my fault (though I store my makeup in a pretty normal environment), but I had to deduct a rating point regardless. Even though I have put it on my to-do list to try out Urban Decay Primer Potion, I will most definitely repurchase this. Afterall, why mess with a (99.98%) perfect thing?
