Gives Great Shine But Weighs Down Curls
I got this shampoo and the conditioner as a BzzAgent to try. I was excited at first as my curly hair tends to be dull and also to frizz. I loved the smell immediately and was impressed with my hair after the first use. However, with repeated use, it began to weigh my hair down and to pull out my curl. My hair is more fine in texture, although I have a lot of it, so it may not do this to those with coarser textured curly hair. It does really make your hair shiney though. I save this now for when I blow my hair out straight. I can only give it 6 stars for the fact that it does weight down my hair and also for the price...which is pretty steep even compared to the salon brand I was using.

I didn't think that Maybelline could actually top their Flasies mascara but they did with this product. Its does not clump at all, gives length and volume and doesn't flake either. Plus, with multiple coats, I got the same effect as the falsies. This is my new favorite mascara!

Excellent Product - Beats More Expensive Brands!
I cannot believe this only $10 at regular price! It beat the more expensive one I was using just prior to buying this primer. My skin is super oily and I didn't not have the issues others have had in prior reviews. I agree with the reviewer who thinks that may have used too much. Additionally, I like the luminosity. I am 42 and I need all the glow I can get! If you use this on your lids and then apply the eye shadow base also made by the line, your shadow wil not move all day! I would recommend this product to others and will definitely buy it again.

Scents Released in Past Year All Variations of Same...sigh
I am so disappointed with the fragrances B&BW has been releasing in the past year or so. Just picked up Country Chic, which should really be called "Twilight Woods in the Spring". I was very disappointed. Nothing they currently make is truly a Spring" scent. I give up on them.

Didn't Really Notice Any "Illumination"...Not Impressed
I received the Black Quartz shade, as a BzzAgent, for brown eyes. My first issue is that the wand for the black base coat side (between the brush and the handle) is too short and made it hard to apply. The basecoat formula was "okay" but not impressive. The illuminating topcoat applied okay, not a lot of clumping, but didn't really "illuminate" my eyes and none of my friends even noticed I was wearing it. This might be nice for the holidays or for those who go clubbing but I wasn't impressed and it definitely isn't something I'd use for daily wear.

Concept Is Cool...If Only It Worked!
I received the Playful trio for brown eyes through BzzAgent. The colors were gorgeous and I loved the concept. However, I have not been able to get it to work in one sweep no matter how many times I've tried. I was able to use my own brushes but found the stripes of shadow to be so thin that it was hard to get the brush into one individual shade without getting any of the other shades. Also, although lasting, the formula is so shimmery that older users who have an issue with crepey lids may not be able to use it. Since you're paying for the gimmick, and the gimmick just doesn't work, save your money and buy one of their eye shadow quads.

What;'s Not to Love? LOL
I couoldn't resist buying this blush to try out and I am so happy I did. Although I have uber fair skin with pink undertones, applied with a light hand, this gave me just the most naturally gorgeous pink flush. Since bright, poppy pink is so huge and trendy this season for Spring, this blush perfectly fits the bill. It is highly pigmented though so watch how you apply it. I don't know if the scent released any endorphins but it is very pleasant and looking at the product and applying it certainly brightened my day. LOL

Best Mineral Powder Foundation Yet by PF!
I was very pleasantly impressed with this product. This is, by far, the best mineral powder foundation that PF has come out with yet. The formula is fantastic and can actually be applied with the little kabuki brush that comes with the product (I really like the brush actually). I applied it over my normal primer and it made my skin look simply amazing. It matched my skin tone very well and lasted all day, with minimal touchups. The SPF 30 is a definite plus too. I will buy this again and highly recommend! I would have given it all stars but I know I will need an additional product come summer to absorb oil...this is the only drawback I could find.

Love this Product!
I just love this 2 n 1 product. I used the light rose/light bronzer shade duo all last summer, and will again this summer, and just loved that I only had to carry one compact but with 2 products in it. I am uber fair skinned and tanning just isn't an option so a bronzer is a must have for me. My skin is combination (note- oily in the summer) and I am also super sensitive. These shades not only looked great with my skin tone, but didn't irritate my skin and, since the bronzer is matte, it didn't make me look greasy from too much shimmer either. I just bought the light ginger/light bronzer compact and can't wait to use that too!

Works Just Like it Says and Doesn't Irritate Skin!
This is one of those few products that actually does exactly what it says it does- corrects/evens out skin tone without irritation. It also kept my combination skin matte all day. I use a bit of the yellow powder under my eyes and the green powder for some red areas and then swirl it all togerther with a big brush and set the rest of my face. This works better than the "boutique" mineral powders I have used and at half the price. Its now a must have for me. I highly recommend!
