Don't get me wrong, I really loved this gloss at the Armani counter in SF. It's a sheer fuschia color with sparkles, comes with a brush on applicator. I think that the MAC lustreglass glosses are just like these and with the price of this gloss, I will have to pass next time I want a replacement for it. Very pretty, but I am sure I can find one like it cheaper in another brand. It also wears off quickly.
I've been using Pureology for years, I love this shampoo! I have medium length dry hair. I have bleached it several times and used permanent colors over the bleach many times. This is the ONLY shampoo that helps my haircolor stay nice and fresh and new looking. My hair has been vibrantly red for a month now with minimal fading. That's 4 weeks! I have used the hydrate conditioner before and wasn't impressed, but the shampoo is my holy grail. I am looking into buying more of their products soon.
I really do like the color selection, but they tend to feel funny on me. I like a lipstick feel, a bit of moisture.. and with these, it's like dry, but that gloss that comes with it on the end of the tube is total crap. I only wear this under lipstick now, so that when my lipstick wears off, something is still there underneath. I do like the extra glosses you can buy to put over the top, those are a better quality than the one that comes with the actual product.
I've tried a lot of other makeup removers that come in bottles.. lots of oilyness and gross creamy feelings on my face. I saw these in the DHC catalog and I had to buy them because of the price and the cute box. I LOVE them. Holy Grail! They are so refreshing and they do the job without drying out your face or eyes. These are not your mama's butt wipes.
When I saw the official MAC website, it described this eyeshadow as "Almost neon lime (Frost)". I've been looking for a neon shadow for a very long time and ordered this little baby right away. It came yesterday, and it's nothing like the photo swatch at all (or in the LOOKS section of the site). It's not at all neon and it's really pale green, almost like a faded pastel. I was upset about that because it's not what I thought I was ordering. I tried it out, and the color was indeed pretty, but I can probably find this somewhere cheaper. I want NEON! haha!
I was so excited about this color, I flipped out when I got the promo postcard in the mail with the beautiful Madame B. collection on the model. I thought she was wearing the actual Madame B. lipstick, so I ordered it online. NOOO.. it's not the same one! This color is frost and the one on the model looks creamy. ::SIGH:: This is a really huge disappointment because this color looks exactly like one I got from NYC a while back at the drugstore. I am giving it 3 stars because while the color is pretty and the texture is nice, I can find one exactly like it at Target in another brand.
I am in a love/hate relationship with this stuff, let's just say I didn't send it a Valentine's Day card this year. Umm.. the girl at Sephora told me to try it out, she claimed it was much stronger than DuWop's lip venom, so I grabbed the container and "injected". Whoa.. tingle, tingle, fun..DAMN! What the hell? I looked like a porn star! I loved the big DSL lips that I had, I kept walking past the mirrors and admiring my swollen, red, throbbing Miss USA pout. The only crappy thing is that it only lasted about 20 minutes and they deflated back to normal boring size. I didn't buy it, but if I had, I would get it again for photoshoots.
If I see the metal showing through at the bottom of this product.. I PANIC!!!!!!!!! This is not just an HG, this is my best friend, husband, wife, mamma.. this is my everything! If I don't put this on, I might as well stay home and hide. This covers the ugly red/blue veins on my eyelids and under my eye, it keeps eyeshadow on my oily lids for the rest of the day, it helps my Benefit/Mac/NYX shadows stay on without creasing. I don't know what I would do without this product... really.
Collect em' all! I love these lipsticks because they stay on! I have oily skin and most lipstick tends to bleed on me and feather. I wear mostly Tanarama, Impassioned and I just ordered Madame B. I do not like MAC lip liners, but I really do dig these lipsticks!

I bought this a while back and thought it was friggin miraculous. I stopped using it on my face because it was too thick on me and seemed to crease my undereye area. I recently started using it again on blemishes only and I love it. Just a couple dabs here and there to cover and I dust loose powder over the top. Works pretty darned good. Under the eye it gets pretty oily.. but covers very well.

Quoting someone below... "I bought this from being pressured by the SA raving at how it works really well for depuffing eyes." - Umm.. you CAN say no, can't you? Anyway, yes, this product does depuff and refract light away from dark circles, but as with any product, you have to realize that not everything is going to work the same on everyone. I've seen amazing results with Ooh La Lift, and sometimes I never saw anything at all.. on myself, for example, I would pat it on my entire eye area, lid and all, after I washed my face and my swollen lids would deflate before my eyes. That's just me, and I guess I'm lucky that it works that good. You get better results when mixing in a little concealer with it.
I've tried every color =) .. my favorites are Tickle (a salmon color that everyone should try.. it's really hot) Galore (a shimmery golden tan that looks orgasmic over other lipsticks or mixed with gloss to give a 3-D effect), Bobby Pin (a sheer candy pink color, very creamy) Flirt (a nude pink that everyone would look great in).. geez there are a few others I can't think of at the moment. Try em out!
Hmm.. I like this fragrance, but I LOVE "Still" much better. My mother recognized the smell of Glo, and told me it's "China Rain", a Body Shop fragrance oil. Actually, it's not THE Body Shop at the mall, it's one in Berkeley that is much different. But, if you ever spot a China Rain oil knockoff, it usually smells just like Glo.
I agree with BeneBaby on this one.. Exxon Valdez just threw up on my head! hahah.. well, it really didn't do anything for me except make me want to jump back in the shower to wash my hair again. It smelled really good though.. if only it worked. I like John Frieda's Spotlight in the Sheer Blonde collection MUCH better. Way cheaper. My hair is extremely dry from hot curlers and blow drying, and the Spotlight helps it more than anything.
Yup.. I hated this product. It's just junk. I used it for years and years because my mother was kind enough to purchase this for me as a teen, thinking it would help me out. My skin seemed so dry (and my skin is OILY!) and I didn't notice any positive changes in the appearance/texture of my skin. The only thing that helped me at the Clinque counter was the foaming acne wash in the pump.
