Fabulous for adding body to fine, limp hair! I got carried away because it's so good and tried using more, then got the crunchies, but if you use sparingly, it's great!
Tried it thanks to the good reviews - gives an interesting, different texture. I rotate it with other products. Great stuff! *Update* Keeps getting clogged - very annoying!
We are never without this. I use it every day and night to keep my lips conditioned.
This is fabulous! It hasn't made my acne prone skin break out, and though it feels oily, it sinks in quickly. It helps dry flaky spots go away, and is great to add to moisturizer and eye cream - great on its own too, great for problem areas. I use it on my neck and chest too - wonderful product. I emailed for free samples, which they sent - great company! *Update* Emu oil is fabulous and has many different uses, but I've since bought a cheap one that was about $12.00, and it was actually a better consistency than dremu. *Update* Though it is a great product, eventually the fact that a bird is killed to get it changed my mind, and now I use Mir skin products - argan oil is less greasy and comes from a plant, so I prefer it - gave this to Mom.
Very creamy and moisturizing. One of the best. I can use it under makeup just fine - just put a primer for eyeshadow.
When I wear my contacts I use a waterproof mascara, and this is the best I've tried. It actually gets lashes as lush and full as the regular hypnose, and really stays put.
Great mascara - gets your lashes about as full as they can go. I almost gave it a lippie off, because the last few times I've used it, it's flaked off into my eyes a bit, but I checked when I got it, and it was 4 months ago, and you're supposed to replace mascara every two of three months. Amazingly, the waterproof is just as good!
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 55 PA+++ [DISCONTINUED]

Thanks to all the fabulous reviews on this product, I gave it a try, and am not disappointed! I'm a PPP, and sunscreen is a must for me. I have oily skin and rosacea, so I'm sensitive. I found this goes on creamy, but dries to a silky matte finish, perfect for putting on my mineral makeup. I found that my makeup has stayed fresh all day with this, which together with the sun protection makes it definitely worth the high price! Putting on sunscreen is now part of my beauty routine, instead of a bothersome chore. I highly recommend it! *Update* Still love this one, but found one even better - no smell, light and silky - Sofina Perfect UV Lucent.
I thought this was a novel idea, and I'm a PPP, so I thought it might work for me, but I returneed it to Sephora. It looked unnatural on me. I tried to work with it for a few days, and I agree it is pretty good for brightning the eye area, but I decided I didn't want to have to put that much effort into using a product - much better, easier stuff out there.
Lipstick -Cat Cosmetics - Kitten Impossible Lipstick

This is the first Cat lipstick I've bought, but I'm definitely getting more! I found with my PPP coloring, the pouce lipstick was a lovely tea rose, pretty much as described - soft rose, with slight hint of gold shimmer - really beautiful that would go with pretty much anything. Like others said - not too dry, or too moist, which makes it a little longer lasting. Love the case with the mirror! *Update* Though I still love the case, this lipstick is just too dry. I much prefer moister lipstick like most of Clinique's.
