Wow, do these take me back. I'm 7 years old and in my grandmother's bathroom watching her put on lipstick...then when she leaves I examine the evidence: A Revlon lipstick! Love at first sight! One of my first introductions to m/u and I now know it was a super lustrous lipstick. The smell still brings back the nostalgia. Love this line of l/s and have used coffee bean, blackberry, and a wine color faithfully over the years....aaahhh...revlon....
I am absolutely floored that this product has scored so poorly. I really like this, lovw the fine & tiny tip, the gorgeous black, but, I'm sorry, it's meant to be used to do that 'dotting' of the lashes that gives the very professional and subtle lined eye look. Don't misuse a product and then give it poor grades b/c it dodn;t do what YOU wanted it to...big rant of mine. Thanks!

Beautiful, gorgeous, soft color especially for those of us with green/hazel eyes--makes 'em POP! Great for work or play, so very versatile, others here have already described the color so just let me add that this is one of my loves....will not disappoint!
I"m using a very generous size GWP and loving it. Sexy daylight shimmer and nice hue to face when used at night. Love the SPF. Am combining it with a moisturizer due to dry winter months, but I'm sure in the summer this will suffice on its' own. Will definitely be purchasing once I run out!

This is the first time I have given a negative review and feel almost guilty, but must share honestly that this is a huge waste of money. Conned into purchasing this after a haircut and, quite frankly, it sucks. Go to your local drugstore and spend $3 on one of the Citre Shine products for curly hair and do your own comparison. 'Nuff said.

My HG hands down. Light, absorbs effortlessly, has spf, this works 330 days out of the year for me; the other days occuring in the winter months when I must step up the moisture b/c my combo skin kicks in to dry mode. I have 3 of my girlfriends using this now as well, and can't rave enough about it!

I could lick this everytime i go to put it on--it's that good! Not crazy about the packaging, but what can one do when in every other aspect it's so exceptional? I get horribky dry skin, and was blessed with the inheritance of eczema on my hands which gets so nasty in the winter. Even prescription creams don't cut it. Who knew that this would be my cure-all (kicks self for not finding it 10 years ago!) My hands are supple and gorgeous-life is good! Am buying these jars in bulk!
Just ordered a .5 size from ebay after using a sample for 1 week (plus, sephora was out of stock!). This is a great winter day cream for those of us with oily summer skins and drier winter skins. Light, but rich enough to be soothing with the spf I must have on 365 days. Perfect! UPDATE 2/16/05 My second winter using this and still loving it! Leaves skin glowy, too, no need for foundation!
This is a wonderful product! Price tag versus amount you use makes it very economical, it is 28 at Sephora. I use a tiny drop and mix it with my moisturizer and then voila! Appears as though a pearl rolled over my face leaving a soft healthy glow that is very sexy and totally daytime appropriate (though better for night!) as opposed to most items such as this on the market that are geared towards 16 yr. olds with no pores. Try it, you'll love it!

I buy this in bulk whenever its' on sale and have been using it since I was 15 (12 years ago-wow!). I go through spurts if using this as I do with all my beloved products and the reason this is my staple is that it is an instant calmer for the skin, clears and softens the face almost instantly and smells heavenly (if you like rose smell)--highly recommend!
