Didn't Live Up to My Expectations
I had high hopes of using this as a quicky face fix. The color is perfect for me but I think the formulation is too dry and makes it more difficult to blend. I've used my fingers and a brush and think the brush technique works better. I'm glad I bought a mini size.

Warm Spicy Vanilla Scent
This smells good on me. I love it's slightly floral yet spicy and vanilla smell. It dries down to a soft, powdery scent. Not for everyday or office wear. i dont think anyone should wear perfume on a bus or at the office. But this is nice for evening dates.

Chemically Treated hair MUST Try This !
Okay, I didn't get this treatment done at a salon. I bought the treatments vials (s) on ebay and followed it up with the appropriate Awapuhi intensive cream. And my hair turned out fantastic. Seriously, it was dry and dull before and after was shiny, soft, had body and the color looked revived. I'm sold on this product !

Makes By Skin Burn
Being older, my skin is leaning towards the dryer side of life. I thought this would be gentle. Instead, it doesn't feel as if it rinses off very well and my skin stings for 20 minutes after using it. I gently pay dry, then it begins to sting. Even after my night cream it still burns. This a 10 thumbs down for me. Got it as a sample so not out any money.

Love This Lipstick
I have it in Raspberry Glace and the color is softer on the the lips than it looks in the tube. It goes on creamy and has a soft sheen. I was worried it would be too dark but it is absolutely lovely. I love the creamy feel. It's a winner. I think it's a good buy.

Wanted to Hate It - Couldn't
I bought this because my hair became fried after a few bad highlighting jobs, then two corrective treatments. It was the dullest and driest of it's 60 yrs. I have tried every highly rated shampoo and conditioner/mask out there to no avail. I forked out too much money for this stuff and wanted to hate it so I could return it. But my hair looks better with every use. I followed directions exactly, leaving the cleanser/conditioner on for 5 minutes (directions do say the longer the better). After applying the leave-in conditioner to wet hair, wrapping in a towel and waiting another 30 minutes or so before drying, I now have soft, shiny hair and my hair color looks better, brighter and fab. Really. It's the price that is ridiculous.

There are Better Foundations Out There
Bought this with a $2 coupon after reading it's comparison to Giorgio Armani's silk foundation. Well Ugh to Giorgio's (I forgot I had bought that last year and given it away). And Ugh to CoverGirl natureluxe. 1) sunscreen should be minimum 15 SPS, this is 10. 2) Too thick and dries fast. So I ended up using a sponges with some moisturiser on it to blend. 3) I swear it looked much lighter after it dried. IF you must have this product, go two shades darker than you think is correct. This might work better on oily skin but I'm just guessing here. This will be going to a friend to try.

Pretty Good Stuff
I have been using Mercier tinted foundation for so long I can't remember. I have the primer, figuring it would be wonderful, but it just isn't my favorite. It seems a bit dryer on my older skin so I prefer SmashBox. I have a whole tube of this, used it three times and put it away.

Been Using This For YEARS
Yes it's expensive, but I love the way it makes my skin feel. And my foundation goes on smoother and looks so good. I also have it in a tinted color for summer. I have tried at least 6 other brands and this is still my favorite. When it no longer pumps I use a popsicle stick to get it all out. It fills in the pores on my nose so they are less noticeable. I also wear it alone and my skin looks dewy without foundation.

Love this Pencil
Being 60 I need soft eyeliner and this works very nicely for me. I love the color Black Coffee. I find it goes on easily and doesn't drag my lid as some harder ones do.
