I waited several months on back order to received this. I thought it smelled kind of nice, it's not my favorite of the La Maison. I thought it would smell more vanilla, it smells more fruity and powdery. It does dry down to a nice vanilla.
I love this powder! It soaks up the oil nicely and it doesn't make you look like a sick ghost. I sometimes mix this in with the mineral foundation to get more of a matte look. This is also great to put on first then apply the mineral foundation, to help set it. This by far is my favorite powder, Neutrogena oil free powder is my second.
This eyeliner is great! I mix the liner with water to get a finer line, it seems to last longer when I use water with it. The colors are awesome, their are so many to choose from!

I love this product! This is the only foundation that I can wear. I could never find a liquid foundation that matched my skin tone. The liquid foundation makes my face feel and look oily. I have been using this product for about 5 years now. I like to mix the fairly-light and medium together or when I am using a tanner I use the medium. When I first tried this I used a little too much a first. A little goes a long way. On me it takes a few minutes to warm up to my skin, then put more on if needed. It is also great for covering blemishes and it has an SPF.
It took a few tries to get use to the gel. I like this a whole lot better then eye pencils. This seems to last most of the day on me, considering my eyes lids tend to get oily by the end on day. They have a nice selection of colors to pick from. The little pot it comes in will last quite a while.
These lip glosses are wonderful. They go on nice and their not sticky like alot of other lip glosses I have tried before. They have a nice soft vanilla scent, much better then before. I stock up when ever they are on sale.

I love this product. I finally found a product that is cheap and softens dry skin pretty fast. It smells so good, I'm a sucker for chocolate & vanilla fragrances and this goes well layered with them. The size of the bottle last forever.
I was disappointed when I received this. It is way to strong for my taste. It smells real peppery on me. It doesn't smell bad once it fades a little, but I probably would not purchase it again. EDITED: I decided to give this another try and I really like it. It mixes well with other fragrances I have. It doesn't smell as strong if I spray it and walk through it. I am giving it 4 lippies, because the scent doesn't last that long.
I really like this fragrance. I can smell the chocolate and orange when I first spray it on. Then it drys to a light vanilla with a hint a coco. It seems to last most of the day on me. I spray it on my neck area, it seems to last longer on me there. I would purchase this again. :)
THIS PRODUCT IS HORRIBLE!!!! I wouldn't even recommend this product to my worst enemy!!! I tried this product in the summer of 2002, I followed the directions by testing a small patch first and it worked ok, no irritation. So I put it on my arms. I couldn't even leave it on for the full 10 minutes my arms were burning sooo bad. I was trying to wipe it off as quickly as I could, the burning got worse and I started to panic!! So I tried washing it off with water. Even with water it wasn't washing off!!! This f@#*ing product left my arms with a horrible chemical burn. For over 2 months my arms swelled up and had blisters all over them. It left my arms discolored. That was 2 years ago and my arms are now starting to look alot better. From now on I'm sticking with shaving. I wish I knew about this website back then, I would have never bought this product. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. I can't believe this crap is still being sold!!! They should have discontinued this product by now!!!

Just like the other reviews, I liked the packaging. The vanilla smell is very nice for the two minutes its on you. Once it's on it feels sticky. I would not recommend this product.
