I have very healthy hair, but it always looks like it is missing something. With this, I feel like it was styled by a top professional. I am not sure what it does, exactly. It is definitely as the package describes--ineffable. It gives it great shine and texture. I don't go to an important event without this. And the best part is you use so little! I used to use Frederick Fekkai glossing cream. And although that took care of my frizz, it did not give my hair any style. Brilliantine takes care of frizz, style, and it adds something extra I can't put my finger on.

I love Brilliantine, I've used it forever. It's expensive, but I've never found anything else like it and I've repurchased it many times .... until now. L'Oreal Everstyle Tousle Creme performs exactly the same as Brilliantine for me, except I don't have to be as judicious about the amount. The Everstyle is a little thinner and easier to work with. HTH someone, it was a nice surprise for me and my wallet. I have collarbone length Botticelli/3a curls, when I use this I put it in very wet hair and I use no other product with it.

Like all Bumble&Bumble products this is expensive. I think I paid 25.00 for the smaller tube. I use just a touch on my damp hair and also use a root spray from another brand. I still don't fully understand what exactly this product does, but I do know that I usually have good hair days when I use it. It gives my hair a little volume and a nice texture My hair is pretty long and I use the smallest amount, a little more than the size of a big pea. Also, my hair is gross and thin and this stuff doesn't make my hair greasy, and for some reason I feel like it makes my hair seem more alive. You should try this.

This is the perfect finish to any hair style! Instead of adding more oils to my ends, this gets rid of fly aways and split ends, as well and adding shine, softness, and texture! I'm obsessed!

The marketing blurb for this is pretty crap but I honestly have to admit its true - it does give a 'sexy slept-in look'. I have long layered asian hair and I scrunch a dab of this in the ends to give a bit of separation and smooth the wiry ends. It does not leave a crunchy or sticky/dirty feel like other texture products or creams. It is slightly richer than the grooming creme so I think this is good for thick coarse hair and the grooming creme for finer hair.
It is pretty pricey and hard to find outside of the US.

Scored a pretty bronze tube of this stuff for 13 bucks after trying a sample of it. This is my summer time staple. I live in NY, where it can get humid and for some odd reason, a lot of homes dont come with central air conditioning, so blow drying can really suck!
I've been trying to fall in love with the natural texture of my hair so I dont have to blow dry as much and this stuff by B&B really helps the courtship along! I use a curl enhancing cream on wet hair and air dry it as much as I can before blasting it with hot air for as little time as possible before putting it in a bun over night (my hair is color treated and porous so air drying takes FOREVER). Brilliantine goes on the next morning and it just polishes the texture I'm left with, defining the curls and waves and controls frizz and the best part is that all it takes is a pea sized dab and BAM! I'm done.

Super expensive for the size of the tube, but it lasts for over a year for me. I have near waist length (when straight) hair, and use this as a finishing product when straightening my hair. The smell is amazing, and it holds down the flyaways, and gives my hair beautiful texture. I love it.

I really like this product. It makes my hair super-shiny, and really defines my curls which are usually very limp and wavy (2a curls to 2b curls). However you really need to limit the amount that you use on your hair to stop it from being crunchy/greasy.
I would only be able to buy this product very rarely, but it's a good treat :) I just wish it was available in New Zealand.

I got a packet of this in my order and I've been hoarding it because I love it so much. It's sort of weird that bumble & bumble claims on the package that they can't define what it is, but it seems to be a styling substance that adds sheen and separation.
I like this product because it tames my hair when it's frizzy and thick, but it never feels greasy or oily like hair oils sometimes do. It makes your hair feel sleek and slippery, if that makes sense.

I got several sample packs of this with my b+b orders, Ive gotten 5 uses out of the first one and theres still plenty left. I use a good bit of this too, and apply it to my damp/half dry hair before I either blowdry or let air dry and it seems to smooth down the waves and thickness of my hair. Thats about all it does in terms of styling so Im not too impressed with it and Im not sure that I would purchase it after I use up all the samples.
UPDATE- i did some research and found out that this is "an oil based styling cream" that adds sheen and seperation. Now that Ive used it a few more times with different bb prep and styling products it seems to work well and i do notice the thing about the seperation and as far as sheen, i also use shine on spray after flatironing my hair and using the two products in conjunction really makes a noticable shine and sleekness and smoothing down of flyaways.
