I haven't written a review in years, but I had to write one regarding the Lip Butter collection!! One poster wrote, " I am seriously considering tossing all my lipsticks". I purchased a few and love, love,love them. I have worn Chanel, Dior, Mac...and all the best. This formula has wonderful colors,great staying power and applies smoothly! A MUST for a lipstick novice to the addicted!!!!!
Clumps....end of story!

I do sit in the sun, however use Alba Botanicals SPF #30 (Per Paula Begouns recommendation) and have just a touch of color. My face color was uneven and I have been on the search for a liquid or gel bronzer since I do not want to use powder in the summer. Went to ULTA and WOW...evened out the skin tone and looks as if I sat in the sun for hours....Love, love, love this and it's SPF15 as a bonus! Natural looking, no scent and my face is not only smooth and soft there is a glow (not a shimmer) to my skin.
Use PK# 303 over BR323 and it's pefection!!!!

This lipstick is the BEST!!! I purchased BR323 and it's the color I have been searching for!!! Bought one in Nordies and HAD to have another (Ebay). GREAT color, GREAT Formula!!!!
Went to Nordstroms and asked "what is new and exciting" and she came back with this lipgloss, however it was SOLD OUT and when she looked it up on line to have it shipped to me there were only 15 left in the entire Nordstroms inventory, which of course made me want it more than ever. I also purchased the lipliner in the color in TONGA which matches it perfectly. I never go lighter or darker with lipliner..always match. This is a fabulous natural looking gloss and it brightens up my face and is the HG color I have always been searching for.
I too was so excited to try this product. When I read all the reviews after seeing Kate Somerville I was "sold". Well, I tried it and it didn't do a thing. Perhaps as a few others said they had good skin to begin with, however I was willing to keep trying it. The reason I sent it back to QVC is that the "pump" would not dispense the product and therefore defective. I did take the top off and then said to myself for 90.00 why should I have to have a defective product. So I am returning the product (after one use) and not repurchasing.
I purchased this brush because I needed a new blush brush. I was using a Stila brush for years but it was time to change. I was so disappointed. As the other poster stated the hairs were all over my face after application of my product. I sent an email to Paula's Choice and they stated "the product is not supposed to shed" and they would either send me a refund or replace the product. I decided to replace the product, so we will see if the replacement is any better than the one I sent back. Disappointed.
This is the BEST foot tool EVER!! I have tried everything and I do mean everything. I have the sponge they use in the pedicure shops with lotion, rasp, diamcele, etc. nothing ever removed the skin just filed it down. I had cracked heels that would never go away, just fade. I found this product when I went to get a pedicure and they had it displayed. I immediately purchased it and used it as soon as needed..it's amazing. I have these tools in my kitchen for cheese, spices, etc. I went on line and purchased the larger version with an extra orb (paranoid that they will stop making it). As other reviewers have stated it takes the skin off in order to get to the skin and then lotion can sink into the skin and keep it soft. This is a must have!!!!
I loved this color. I apply this lightly and therefore I achieve a beautiful plum color that is not dark or bluish. If one applies with a heavy hand this color can be overwhelming. This is the first plum color that actually matches my lipsticks. I match my lipsticks or go a shade lighter, I do not wear darker liners and lighter lipsticks.
I am glad that I purchased a sample for 0.25. The matte lipstick felt like an extra layer of skin. It is horrible. This is the first time I have ever rated any product with one lippie. One thing I will say you get a generous amount of lipstick for 0.25. Sorry Paula

I bought this on a whim because I wanted something that would give me a "glow" without looking like a bronzed statue. This tint is just that,a slight hint of color. I do have a tan from a recent trip and I "filled in the places" where I did not tan as well and it gave me the glow I was looking for. I even applied it on my eyelids as well. Very nice product and as the other reviewer stated it is only an SPF10 but I would put my SPF15 moisturizer under it or mix it together.
I also expected great things from this product and checked with your reivews (never purchase anything before I check on MUA) and also was very disappointed. I removed my acrylic tips (after 4 years) and decided to let my nails "breathe". Of course I did not have unrealistic expectations as soon as I started using this product, but after 3 months I see nothing different. My nails are still thin and weak, perhaps they do not peel as they once did but after three months I "expected" more. Will not repurchase and will keep searching.
I have used other products in the past but they have had drawbacks. Either too greasy, non-absorbing or too expensive to keep replacing since in the winter I moisturize daily after showering. I bought this "just because" and have not regretted the purchase. Although I prefer pumps to jars or bottles I like this big plastic jar since you can get at it easier and take as much or as little as you want. It is unscented which I prefer (I don't like other products interferring with my perfume) and it is rich and emollient. It is of course dermatolgy approved, no dyes and leaves my skin soft all day. My husband (who I hooked on this as well) said he felt the difference on his skin as well. This is my HG cream and will try the lotion for summer months.
Virtual Radiance is a new line from Revlon that is targeted to 40-50 plus. There was a free sample on line after you register and take the "cosmetic profile". Since I am not an eyeshadow user I thought that would be a nice way to try something new. Well, not only was the color they chose for me perfect but it stayed on twelve hours and looked as fresh as if I just applied it. It is a mousse like shadow and went on smoothly and easily. The color had a hint of shine but subtle and classic. Again, I am not a shadow "lady" but when these products are available in the stores I will purchase the shadow. This might make me a "shadow chic" after all.
