Blush -Lauren Hutton - Aqua Elements Loose Mineral Blush

Love the blush. I purchased in the Dark and it blends very well with my skintone. It's not dramatic or fake looking... just a subtle blush that ends up looking very natural. Downside is the packaging. The sifter top comes with a plastic cover. When removing the cover my whole sifter came out and powder went everywhere. I wasn't able to replace the sifter to make it fit right so that the pkg lid could be put on securely. Also, I was sprinkling the blush into the lid once and the sifter came out splilling powder all over my sink. So to sum it up, product is excellent.... pkg is not!
Powder -Lauren Hutton - Aqua Elements mineral powder

So far this is the best mineral makeup I've used for my dark skin. I purchased this in Dark and it blended very well with my skin tone. The downside is that it doesn't cover very well even with use of the concealors. However, it makes the skin look fabulous as a finishing powder over foundation. I use it by itself on the weekends. It makes the skin look and feel very smooth and soft. I highly recommend for skin over 40 and also for darker skintones.
This is a great curling iron. After years of using the damaging Gold N Hot irons that always broke after a couple of month's usage, the Jilbere is a welcome change. I purchased the 1" iron and use it to add curls to my short bob cut. The curls last and are soft and shiny. The iron heats up very quickly too. I would have given a 5 for overall rating but I have one small problem and that is that the location of the off-on switch makes it easy to accidentally turn the iron off during use

I don't like this product. First of all it did nothing as far as shine. I could deal with that, but it actually made my hair dry and somewhat brittle. I've tried it twice and both times go that effect.
I really like this. It's not as light as the scents I usually wear, but for special occassions or just when I want a little extra this is great. Very floral and lasts a long time. Sophisticated but not overbearing. Not heavy, but you do have to be careful as it can be a bit strong if too much is applied.
I used the Bronze 2 (I use the Bronze 600 liquid). At first I thought the powder made me look "dead"... you know pastey or ashy looking. Then I applied a little more and kind of got used to the look. It was more smooth and velvety looking than I'm used too which is a good thing. But after a couple of hours, I look horrid! I can't explain it, but there was splotchiness, uneveness, my one wrinkle was magnified, and I looked about 10 yrs older!! Maybe I used too much, but I'm glad I tested this at home before wearing it out.

This product did no more than a good lotion (such as Keri) or vaseline, plus it smelled like old liniment or ointment!! I was really disappointed.

First of all, I have very little discoloration on my face/neck area. I used this product in the a.m. only for 3 weeks and saw very little , if any improvement. However after 4 weeks my skin appeared much smoother and a little brighter. I know the product's function is to fade and even out skin tone, but the main difference I saw and felt was how incredibly smooth my skin became. I had areas on my cheecks that had very small pimples that are completely gone now. Actually my skin hasn't looked this good in years. I would have rated higher if my dark spots had faded more, but maybe with time they will.
I always come back to this product. I try other products after falling for advertising claims, but this is the one that works for me. I'm 50 yrs old with no wrinkles and this product moisturizes and most of all lifts and firms my face. No sickening smell either. Love it!!
If you want your man to smell like an Easter ham, this is the perfect scent. My goodness, the clove smell was way too overpowering. I expected it to smell like someone who has stepped out of the shower but it smelled more like someone had just stepped out of the spice cabinet.
Well, I asked for Eternity and got Euphoria for Christmas. Whoa!!! It is strong. Almost smells like a man's scent. Since I am stuck with it, I use it when I go to church (that way I blend in with the other strong-scented women!). I only use one small spray of it or else it would be too overwhelming. The scent lasts for a very long time.

I expected better results. I really didn't see an improvement in firming. If it had at least been a decent moisturizer, then I may have rated it higher, but I couldn't score it high there either. Soaks right into skin and just doesn't give the skin much moisture at all. I got much better results when I combined it with RoC's serum.
Love this scent. Light, fruity, with just a touch of floral. I am very sensitive to some scents and this in one of the few that I can wear with no sneezing or headache. I would have rated higher, but the scent doesn't last long. After a couple of hours, the scent starts to go away. Of course the bottle is absolutely adorable.
Love this product. I especially like the fact that I can lighten up a too-dark shade by using this; however, I never use it alone.

Just an ordinary moisturizer at best. No lifting quality at all. I was waiting for Avon's Ultimate Anew to go on sale, so I bought this in the meantime. I could see a definite decline in the appearance of my skin in about a week. Will never buy again.
