Well, what can I say, Opium has been a favorite of mine for years! I love it. I haven't purchased it in a while...which reminds me that I need to do so. I started wearing it when I was about 16 and have loved it ever since. Yes, it's a strong perfume...it's bold, but it's beautiful and distinct. I can spot an Opium wearer immediately. I just love that it has a smell of its own and it is sooo sexy. I've had more compliments when wearing this than any other fragrance. LOVE it.
Well, I just got my samples a few days ago, and so far I like it. I'm ordering more because the color wasn't exactly what I wanted but after I asked for advise from the makeup artist I now know what I need. It's a little more matte then what I'm used though. Good, even coverage and stays put. Too soon to tell about breakouts but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. EDIT- Well, I just can't do it...it's too matte for me. I really wanted to like this but after using it for a few days I just couldn't handle the duleness. Bummer...
Yucko, I HATE this stuff. I forgot my makeup bag at home and I had this stuff on my desk from a while ago but never used it. So...first off, it smells then i applied it and it felt tight and gross. Well, trying to take it off now and I can't get it off. My lips look shriveled up and have a greyish cast to them. Even tried with soap. In the trash it goes.
don't really care for this product like i did when i first tried it. my initial reaction was that it was okay, but after about a week it's just an average product. doesn't cover very well, and certainly doesn't stay on for 16 hours. i prefer the almay to this!
THis is just an okay product. I'm surprised by all the hype of it because any reviews I see that I read (like here), it doesn't do very well. It didn't sting my skin at all, but my skin does okay with BP so I wasn't really worried about that. Crappy part, it does stain stuff. So many of my towels are ruined because of it. I don't really get it because when I just use like Clean & Clear BP, it doesn't stain anything. Anyway, it seemed to work pretty well for a while...no miracle or anything, but a noticeable difference. My first bottle lasted a good while, then I decided to buy another bottle when I moved from Florida to Colorado. Well, I was so mad because I bought from one of those mall stands and they still charge you shipping, WFT!?!? Annoyed the hell out of me. For some reason since I have been here it just hasn't worked as well and I decided to stop using it. Sucks because I paid $28 for the crap and didn't use much of it. Definitely not the miracle producted that they claim it to be.

This is the first mineral makeup I have tried and so far, I am pleased. It feels so light and sheer, but covers so well. It gives a nice glowing appearance without looking greasy. The shade selection is limited so that it a bummer. I have to mix 2 together and they don't give you much product either. EDIT: I am no longer wearing this...made my skin itche too bad fron the bismuth in the summer! Just too may negatives with this, poor packaging (even though I dumped the product in a little powder jar anyway), limited color selection and not much product for the price.
I have been using this product for a few years now. It's nothing fancy, but it isn't supposed to be a miracle product, just a gentle cleanser. I refuse to spend tons of money on something that just washes down the sink. So, it does what it's supposed to do...cleans my face.

This wasn't as good as I expected it to be. It just didn't do much for my skin. I think it even broke me a out a little. Again, another product not worth the money I spent on it.
I think this product is WAY overpriced. It just doesn't do a whole for being so expensive. It feels kinda nice and smells pretty, but that's about it. I will not be buying this again.

I really did like this foundation. Covered well and not too thick. It's too bad it was discoed. They always do that crap, disco things that are good! Urgh!
This is not a miracle product, but it works pretty good most of the time. It dries up certain pimples quickly, then sometimes it doesn't work at all. But I always keep a tube in my drawer, I like it better than any other bp product.
This is an okay product, nothing really fabulous about it. It doesn't make my hair dreamy, I'll just say that. I will not re-purchase.
Ok, so this is probably not the best conditioner ever, but it's pretty good. When my hair is healthy it works great. I color my hair a lot though so I have to use deep conditioners and have it cut frequently. So, when I do that...I like this product, keep my hair soft.

This is a pretty good product, I'm glad I gave it a try. It's better than a lot of other stuff I've used. I will purchase again.
I just got this about a week ago as a freebie when I ordered the Enhanced Cream from Drugstore.com. So far so good, it seems to be a pretty good cleanser. I use Purpose first, just to make sure I have most of my makeup off, then finish with this.
