I got this as a set with the lotion. As soon as I sprayed it the air and me Smelled Like Tanning Lotion...after you've been tanning a few hours. No good for me.
I just bought it in Rhubarb color. I LOVE it. The cool feeling on your lips and the color actually stays on for awhile as well as brightens up my face. My lips instantly feel revived and the moisturizes it pretty well. The only thing missing is SPF but other than that, a fab lip balm.
Let's start with the pros. I love their assortment of brunette shades. I chose Espresso. It comes with a little perfume packet to make the dye smell better. The conditioner it comes with is Amazing. I dryed and styled my hair as usual and really liked the color that came out. My hair was fairly soft because of the nice conditioner they give. Now the cons, even with the added perfume, it was very strong and burned my eyes. Although it was soft the first day, the next day I washed it, it was very dry. As the days progressed, it kept getting dryer and more hair was coming out of my brush than usual. It took several deep conditioning treatments over a few weeks to get it back to normal. By then, the color had faded a lot so my hair looked rather dull. I would not buy Feria Haircolor again.

The WORST deoderant I have EVER encountered. My armpits were more wet on a crisp fall day, than even the hottest of summer days. I tried it for 2 weeks waiting for it to "kick in" but all I got were wet armpits. I literally was wiping them down every few hours. I am going back to Dove.

Left my hair VERY soft and manageable, just like the commercial. Had to switch shampoos though because I dyed my hair and it not good for colored hair.
Bronzers -Shiseido - Luminizing Color Powder in Golden Bronze

If you buy the brozer, you have to buy the compact holder separately which can be pricey purchase. I liked this bronzer in the beginning because it was the perfect shade of bronze, very natural looking. But it ran out very quickly and for some reason, as it dwindled down, it did so unevenly so I was left with an unequal distribution of the 3 colors which didnt look even anymore on my face. I wouldnt buy it again because its too pricey, doesnt last as long and I found a better bronzer for a lot less.
I use this after I blowdry my hair and straighten it with a flat iron. This really helps with flyaways, frizzies and even static hair. I just put a small dallop in my palm, rubs my hands together, and smooth it over the top layer of my hair and ends. Leaves it very soft and a healthy shine.
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Multi-Colored Bronzer

This is a GREAT bronzer IF you know how to apply it. I bought a big fan brush because it lightly brushes the brozer on. The brushes that come with the bronzer are terrible, they are TOO thick and deposit way too much product onto your face. So I use my fan brush and lightly dust my cheeks, nose forehead and chin and then blend with a sponge giving me a nice sunkissed glow.
I have bought several bottles of the medium color. I am against tanning beds and try to stay away from sun so I definately needed a color boost. The smell isn't too great but you get used to it as long as it's not too hot because getting sweaty makes it smell stronger. You really have to be careful not to overdo it especially on your feet because it is a dead giveaway of a self tanner and exfoliating at least once a week is recommended because it doesnt work as even or as well if you dont. As a moisturizer, it not bad, but definately not for people with very dry skin. Also, dont use if you tend to break out. I tried it on my face a few times and broke out like crazy.
Very sweet and soft scent, kind of like baby powder but in a pretty way. It isn't too strong but I like wearing it as an evening scent when I go out.

It does not seem to cover my super dark eye circles enough but so far it has been one of the better products I have bought. I dab the yellow first, blend with my finger, then put some neutral over it and blend together with my finger. Unfortunately by the end of the day it has faded and creased due to drying out which maybe be my skin's fault. However, for the affordable price, I would recommend giving it a try.

I Love this perfume. Its very light and soft for everyday wear. Its not too strong and seems to have a hint of jasmine (my favorite). Mac perfumes have pretty good lasting power also. I spray it in the morning and can still smell it late at night.
Good evenening prefume, a little strong for a daily wear perfume. Perfer MV1 for daily wear.
