I was in the Aveda store and the SA offered to show me how this worked. I went in there with "gym hair" and came out with this awesome volume. I have a POB haircut, angled bob. The problem is I could not get this to react the same way as she did. I washed and styled today and I believe I put on too much product. It was like cement. I think this is my fault, so I wil continue to try. I gave it a 4 because I am not sure yet. I love the fact it has UV protection in it.

Thanks to the wonderful reviews, I picked this up at the Aveda store last night. I used it today and the shine is incredible. It also has heat protection in it, so it works for just about everything. Yes, the price may be steep. But I was buying Shu Essence Absolue. This is so much better and less than half the price. Thanks Aveda, another awesome product.
Thanks to the wonderful MUA reviews and my awesome hairdresser at an Aveda salon, I purchased this brush yesterday at an Aveda store. AWESOME! This brush beats my FF brush all to heck and the FF was 3 times the price. $20 USD for this brush was incredibly inexpensive. It will last forever. I have a POB haircut and this works for smoothing it and making it so shiny and soft looking. LOVE IT! I guess my Australian Shepard will be getting the FF brush now. :)

I used this quite a long time ago and really liked it at first. I just started going to an Aveda salon and fell in love with the color and products they use. I decided to purchase again and I was not sorry. I agree with the other reviewers, you need to apply this carefully or it will end up a huge glob. I travel for my job and am concerned about the plane. I will just carry it with me and keep it upright. All in all, it is a good product, does what it promises and I will buy again.
I do really like this stuff. Just purchased at Sephora. I may get other colors. I have so many lipsticks, glosses and liners. I could probably open my own cosmetic counter. LOL. Seriously, I do like the moisturizing qualities this has. Not really thrilled with the packaging, kind of like Stila's old lip pots. I loved those as well.
I was looking for a highlighter and a shadow. Lotus serves both purposes. I really like a more natural eye shadow, since I line my eyes on top and bottom. This really gives a wide eye look and is of course the high quality of all Chanel shadows. I love it.

HG, HG for sure. My hair turned out too dark the last time we did it. Rather than beat up my hair, I opted to try this highlighting pen. I love this thing. It has given me back the highlights that were covered up and they are truly creamy beige. Bravo, Oscar Blandi. I love his silk polishing creme too.
I love this shade, so natural and shiny. This is the second bottle I have purchased. My Mom used it as well and loved it. I especially like the way it just wears off, no chipping. I am pretty rough on my hands, cleaning, sports and gardening. This is perfect for a short, but polished look.
AWESOME, AWESOME lip gloss. As soon as I read it had the RA formula, I had to buy. I have Insolence and am headed to Nordstrom to purchase Emoi, maybe even Confidence. I love these. I never even wear lipstick anymore, just this gloss. I really like these better than the Glossimers.
Thanks to the MUA reviews, I purchased this eye pencil. What appealed to me was the fact there was no red in it. That is correct, just a nice brown. It wears fairly well, but does tend to smudge at the end of the day. What can you say? It is after a kohl pencil. If you want some definition and drama to your eyes, but not too harsh but this pencil. I purchased specifically for the waterline and I am not disappointed. As far as the price, you cannot beat MAC, back to Sephora went the pricey YSL pencil.
After reading these wonderful reviews, I headed to Nordstrom yesterday to purchase Insolence. Just hearing it had the same formula as my beloved Rouge Allure lippies, I knew it would be incredible and I was not disappointed. I love this with the pencil in Natural, gives a defined, but understated lip. My lips are fairly full, so i do not want to have a bright lip, but do not want to look dead either. Kudos to Chanel for another awesome lip product. I wear RA Imagination with Maline gloss and on other days I just pop on the Insolence, both over Natural. Thanks Chanel and MUA.
I bought this blush while on vacation in Denver last January. It is water based, so I thought terrific. I used it for quite a long time, then went back to Stila and then on to Tarte, even Posie Tint. I am back to Charming, nice healthy glow and perfect for summer. I gave the packaging a 3, mostly because of the plastic cover that keeps getting in the way. But I would still buy this again, but probably will not have to for a long time.
I love this color, perfect. It gives my full lips some basic healthy color. I picked up the last one at Macy's, Nordstrom was out of it. It gives such a natural and rosy look. You just need a nice gloss in the middle of bottom lip and perfection. It is similar to Pink Ballerina, which has been discontinued.
I love this stuff. What a wonderful natural glow it gives. I would not try it on my lips, way too drying probably. It works so much better than any cream blush and it lasts too. I would give it 5 stars, but the packaging is horrible. What an idea to have a nail polish brush to apply this, not very good. But I do put it on my finger first then apply. Good stuff, will buy again. EDIT: Went to a meeting and looked in the mirror, I was shocked at how pink my cheeks looked. I wanted more of a natural look, back to Sephora this went.
After reading these reviews, I went to our local MAC store. I am a big Lustering fan and I wanted to compare the two. Well as we all know, this packs much more of a punch than Lustering. So, I decided no, I will stick with Lustering. Well I got ten steps out the door and I turned around and went back to buy it. I am glad I did. I wear it with a very neutral lip liner and just pat it on my lips. The color does brighten up my face and I totally love it. I will go between this and Lustering. go MAC.
