Mixed feelings after 5 days...
I have been using this every single night for 5 days after I cleanse my face, before my moisturizer, and so far I haven't noticed a difference. I am not expecting to see a difference for at least 30 days, but at the same time, I think this is starting to give me break outs. Sad. I will continue to use it in hopes that something else is the culprit. As for how I like the actual product minus the results part - It smells gross. Like a science lab in high school or something. It feels very lightweight and absorbs quickly, so that is good. A little surprisingly goes a long way, but I hope my breakouts will turn around so that I love this product like everyone else does!

I have used this 2x a day for 3 days so far and have the best color I have ever seen from a self tan product. This is easy on my delicate facial skin, and the spf 20 is such a bonus. I am in love. This is a relatively cheap product for how well it works. This is great.

I applied this to freshly shampooed, towel blotted hair. I started with a nickel sized amount, and had to take about 3 of that same amount to fully saturate. This is a miracle, though. Usually it takes me gobs and gobs of handfuls for me to feel like a treatment has coated every hair strand of mine. I have very thick, very bleached bleached bleached, dry, damaged shoulder length hair. Immediately, to my amazement, my hair felt silky while the treatment was on. While rinsing out, I wasn't sure if it was supposed to leave a 'residue' feel... I keep rinsing and rinsing anyway, because there have been some people say they got greasy from putting it on their roots. The true test comes down to how my hair felt when dry. Much to my surprise, my hair feels so silky. It feels hydrated, it looks healthier, stronger, there was less breakage when I styled.

Did nothing for me
I felt like the huge bristles and clumpy formula of the "Colossal" did nothing beneficial for my blonde fine and thin lashes. Using it on the top lashes, I found that after a few hours it started flaking off, and not only in flakes, but in big ol' clumps. Using it on the bottom lashes - what a joke! The brush is so big, I could barely even get it to touch my bottoms without smearing and blackness all over my entire eye. Will not buy this product again, but would suggest it to those who like volume and dark coloring on their (already long, thick and dark) lashes for a short amount of time.

Can't find my shade
Although I like the price, the coverage, and the texture, I don't like the brush that comes with (too pokey and ouchy) and I haven't yet found a shade to match my skin. I am just a light/medium skinned girl with freckles. I don't know why it would be so hard. All the colors I have tried in this have all been way too pink. I have the liquid version of this, and have found my PERFECT shade. Unfortunately the powder and liquid don't share the same shades or else I would have found the perfect one. Other than that this is everything great in a mineral powder!

it's not the products fault... my hair is impossible.
I have naturally wavy hair (you know, the frizzy, can't-leave-it-natural-or-else-it-looks-like-crap kind). Praying and hoping to find a product that will allow me to leave my hair in its natural state only more refined looking, I stumbled upon this. I have to add that I also have John Freida Beachy Waves and Bumble&bumble Surf Spray. This smells amazing, but did nothing for the natural texture of my hair. After I flat iron/curling iron my hair and spray this in it gives a nice beacy texture, but I can't just spray this in, scrunch my hair and go. NO WAY. All that results in is nice smelling ugly looking hair. Oh well. The quest continues.

Greatest with Warmth
I use this with Warmth, and I love it. Gives natural looking results and doesn't put too much or too little product on the face. I even think that the handle is the perfect size. This sheds quite a lot, but I'll take that because it's such a perfect blush brush.

A good choice for colored hair
The little individual packets are really annoying to open, but this stuff does wonders for shine. I let it sit in my hair for 5 minutes and rinsed it out as directed. My hair was soft and my curls were bouncy. Didn't notice much moisture, but it wasn't what I was looking for. This was great to bring out my natural highlights from the sun, so it would be even better for those that color.

Can it be true?
Everyone's favorite blush in cream form PLUS a delicious looking bronzer of the same company? Yum. Blend this on with fingers and you get a healthy, pinky-apricrot, subtly golden gorgous beachy glow. Amazing. Worth the $45 I paid. This will last me at least a year.

Immediate Wrinkle Relief
I have one large expression line across my forehead and also the dreaded "parenthesis" aka smile lines. If you use this according to the directions (making a bunch of dots along the wrinkle, and then smoothing them together) this works wonderfully well. You only need a little product for each area, so this would last you a long time. This makes my skin so smooth! The only sad thing is that when I use this day after day, I start to break out :( I love the immediate effects of this... it does exactly what it says it will do. On the other hand, I am so mad that I can't use this every day because it breaks me out.
