This is wonderful stuff for those of us who want to style our natural curls into something smooth and sophisticated. I need a generous dime size dollop in my chin-length hair. Blow dry and enjoy. Because I have thick curly hair which is also dry (as is the case with most curly heads) this works perfectly and doesn't weigh down my hair. Plus it lasts a long time even though I use a larger amount than recommended. If you have thin, fine, oily or straight hair this isn't the product for you.

My Top Beauty Product Discontinued
This was the greatest body lotion I've ever used. Unfortunately Olay has discontinued it. Their online consultant told me that the Quench product with Green Tea is it's replacement. While that's quite nice, it isn't as good as the Body Age Transform Serum. Maybe we can get a campaign to convince Olay to bring it back. It was around $13 for an 8 oz. bottle and worth 3X that.

Long Lasting Eye Makeup
I first used this product over 20 years ago. I stopped for a while when I was too busy & had to drastically simplify my morning routine. Now I'm back & loving it as much as ever.

I'd been hesitant to try this although I love wearing Cashmere Mist. Finally I decided to treat myself last week and bought it. Wonderful! It actually works...of course it hasn't been really hot but so far so good. The fragrance is very light, but as with other cashmere mist products like their body wash, it is long-lasting.

Great Inexpensive Powder
If you're looking to save money, this is quite a nice product. I'd recommend it for those with slightly dry to slightly oily skin. It definitely has a very matte finish. I also use it for evening, since I use all spf products for my daytime makeup. I stock a travel bag with separate makeup so I don't have to pack/repack each time and this goes in it. I always prefer to use my own brushes (even with high-end products) so the lack of a brush doesn't bother me. All in all, a good quality product at a bargain basement price.

Good body moisturizer
I've started using this as a replacement for the Body Serum that Olay discontinued. While not as good a product, it's definitely less expensive and does a good job of moisturizing. It absorbs into the skin easily without leaving a greasy feel.

I bought this based on it being a "Paula's Pick" but while it is moisturizing it has a very unpleasant fragrance that is totally off-putting. Ten months after purchasing it, I still have most of the tube because it smells so bad when I use it.

Gorgeous, long-lasting colors
I'd been buying Physician's Formula eyeshadow quads which are 60% less expensive when I got a sample with an Estee Lauder purchase. WOW!!! The colors are beautiful with a slight shimmer which I love even though I'm in my 50's and have lines around my eyes. This brings out my eyes and actually make them appear more youthful although the usual advice is to stick with full matte to de-emphasize lines. Plus the color lasts all day without smudging. My only complaint is that one of the colors in the quad is a dark rose which nobody should use on their lids unless they want to look like they just spent the evening burning the midnight oil. However, it will make a great blush color & when I start running low, I plan to put it in my travel bag so I'll have eye & cheek color in one small compact.

Great Blush-Tips for Better Application
I noticed that most reviewers loved the product but not the application. Be forewarned, you need to have a comfort level working with loose powder ( since I also prefer loose to pressed face powder & can just advise that practice makes perfect with these products). I toss out the L'Oreal blush brush and recap with the plain top. Turn upside down & tap 5 times then use my own blush brush to apply. It blends perfectly and the shimmer is ultra-fine leaving a very soft glow that lasts. I agree that it is way too bulky to travel & I'm thinking of buying a brush I saw at Sephora which you can pour loose powder in the handle & then shake it to dispense. Haven't tried that but it seems like it would work. I generally keep small sizes of my makeup ready to go & the only small blush container I've found is Rimmel which is OK but I love, love, love the Bare Naturale Blush & would like to use it all the time.
