I had high hopes for this-I love the color and was intrigued by the promise of 6 hour wear. Was I ever disappointed. After about 20 seconds on my lips it was dry and gloppy. It didn't even look like a lipgloss-it wasn't shiny or shimmery. After an hour or so it was just a sticky mess. What a waste of $9.00. I will say that I loved the applicator; it's just like the one Lancome uses in their lipglosses and works better than any other I've used.

I have been using this product for years and I'll never use anything else. I love the texture and the coverage. I use City Fair, however I wouldn't categorize it as a concealer for a really fair skinned person-it's a little darker than that. The compact is a great size, and comes with mirror. The only thing I don't care for is the silly brush-I don't even know what the heck it's for...use your fingers and blend, please. Throw the brush away.
I have a real love/hate with this one. I have tried just about every mascara known to man, and I LOVE this one. It goes on well, it looks great after just a few applications, and it's the closest my lashes have looked to fake. HOWEVER: Removing this stuff is rediculous. I have used soap and water. I have used make up remover. Nothing works well. Pulling on them with remover on a tissue works, but it also pulls out a few of my own lashes. Great stuff, but they need to either figure out how to get it off easier or make a potion that will do it in one wipe.
I can't believe the person who said they think this smells RANCID. I think it smells divine! In fact, more than one person has noticed it and complimented me on how I smell! Aside from that, it is a great product. I have long, color treated hair that can be very dry and frizzy. Silky dirt works wonders on it-tames the frizz, and gives it a nice sheen. I would highly recommend it as a styling product-even if you don't have frizzy hair. Just take my advice and DON'T USE TOO MUCH. Even if you have a lot of hair, a little really does go a long way and too much makes my hair a little greasy.
I usually spend a lot of money on hair products, and I have to say the Fructis line is one of the BEST I've ever used...and it's CHEAP! The Length & Strength shampoo is wonderful-I thought my hair felt fuller and healthier immediately after the first use. I would recommend it for anyone who is trying to grow their hair out and/or has damaged hair. PS The conditioner is great, too.

Wow, I must be crazy because I LOVE the smell of this stuff. And it made my hair really soft. Stonger and longer? Well time will tell.
I LOVE this fragrance! I get complimented on it all the time- from both men and women. It does smell like cotton candy, so if you like sweet scents, this one's for you.
