While I am still seeing if I really really like this product - at this point I would purchase again. I have a tan and the Medium is a perfect match. This surprised me since there are not many color options to chose from. I wore it yesterday for the first time and our heat was 88 with high humidity. I had to use my blotting papers at noon. This I expected as I always have to use them at noon. If this product was able to control the oil then I would think it might be clogging my pores. When I removed it in the evening..it was still there. It felt light all day and not like I had anything on at all. I have a good complexion with nothing I really need to hide. I owe this all to my mom who taught me very early on that you need to moisturize and apply eye cream even if you see nothing cause you always want to see nothing. So since the age of 16 I've been using products and now I've been a faithful Clarins and Shiseido user. The coverage is wonderful adn texture light. Today it'll be topping 93 and we are having our company picnic...lets see how well it holds up today. I do think, though, that $12 is a bit high. If I'm buying drugstore I would hope to pay around $6 but if this works then I have no problem at all paying it. I pair it with a nude wash of cream eye color by Clarins, gloss and a bit of eggplant liner and mascara. I don't put poweder on until I show a sheen -

Wow...this is an awsome fragrance. All I can say is that if you love Meditteranean, the original, you will love this. It has greener notes in it but the first initial note is Vanilla..it is warm and lovely..not biting. Then it dries down to a warm green fragrance. It is wonderful.
Wow...this is the perfect purple color for fall. It has a bit of a frost to it and gold I love it.

I wanted to like it so bad. I sprayed....I liked....it was gone. Literally gone within 20 minutes. I knew where I sprayed it but darned if it didn't even leave a bottom note trace. The bottle is very pretty but I had to rate it poor due to how long it lasts.
Nope no...not even impressed a bit. Could not WAIT till this launched - the launch at Macy's was true to Gwen but this fragrance - IMHO - is not. It smells like all the others. There is nothing exciting about it at all and the bottle looks like a men's fragrance bottle. Nothing I would want next to my D&B or Chanel. It's too sweet. Gwen reminds me of someone that would have done a vanilla and patchouli with some darker notes. Something to smell really really feminine. This, to me, reminds me of everyother fragrance out there. Hats off to SJP for bringing a Celebrity Fragrance that matches her personality.
The red capped one. OMG I just love this fragrance. I can see how the one reviewer said soapy clean - it does start out like that on me. Then the vanilla and amber come out. To me..this reminds me of Andiamo by Borghese. Remember that. It sold for $29.99 at May Co. and now you can't touch it for less than $300 for a full bottle. I do love this and want to get the body lotion. I think this will be my new fall favorite.
Wow - be prepared to pee pee pee. This product really purges your system so that it allows the plant extracts to firm and tone. When I use this I really notice a difference. The smell is on the side of pure extracts - and not in a "you smell lovely" sort of way. However, this, to me, means that it means business. It's not there to moisturize and make you smell pretty - it's there to do a job....and IMHO it does. Packaging is fine. I dont' think a tub would be better -= I cut the bottom of this to get teh rest out since it is pricey.
"Covet traps you in a hypnotic bouquet of crushed geranium leaves, fresh sicilian lemon, and french lavender laced with decadent chocolate, magnolia, and honeysuckle. sensuous musk, exotic woods, and smoldering amber leave an intoxicating afterglow." This is what is written as a review and it is perfect in its description. When I saw it when it first came in to Macy's I had to try it....Now I have to own it. It is a beautiful fragrance that does remind me of Dune. I believe it is the warmth from the musk and exotic woods that does it. I don't notice a chocolate, magnolia on me but at first spray it did remind me of Lovely. It is complex...it starts out fresh....mid notes are warm and ending with an intoxicating musky warmth that i feel this will just do wonderfully in the autumn. I love it and the bottle is so so different from Lovely - the cap itself is just beautiful. Great fragrance in my opinion but prcy as the 1.7 is over $55
Whyyyyyyyyy do they use that awful flavor/smell in their Lipsticks. I love the staying power of it but cannot do the taste. yukkkk
The only reason and I stress only reason I would not use this again is I cannot match my skin color to this particular line. It has alot of gold or pink to it - no happy medium and I am a makeup artist..so it's not that I don't know how - I just find it difficult. The consistency is nice, smell is nice, bottle is great, texture and staying power is great - color match...poor.
Wow...this lotion not only is emolient but it lasts all day. I have never had a lotion from a fragrance line that lasted as long as this has. I don't normally wear euphoria in the summer due to how strong it is on me but when I found and tried the Lotion - I found my HG of lotions. The scent is true to the fragrance and I receive loads of compliments on it. I love the pump too - makes it easy to get just the right amount.

This is great. I wanted something light weight yet luminous and found it in EA. I work for another line and our TM is so orange I feel like something from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I got this in Deep as I have a tan and I dust on a little bronzer and done. It gave me great SPF as I was out with the kids all day and put it to the test...yet I still looked fresh. I don't understand the "dirty" comments but you did have to blend - I would not recommend a foundation brush at all - fingers worked best in my opinion. It lasted all day and I loved it.
I am on my second pallett of this wonderful perfect bronze color. I reach for this almost every day. I just love it's irredescent quality and the staying power is far superior than most eyeshadows..namely MAC...that I 've used. I only have the package 3 cause I really wish it came with an applicator of some sort.

If I'm gonna spend the cash I would at least like to get something in return. This product didn't do a thing for me. I got it in Pink-a-Boo and the consistancy was so moist that it gave no color. Not sure of the purpose of this line of Buttershines but I'd rather use Bonnie Bell at a much cheaper price. Edit: I took away two lippies cause this melted in my purse. It wasn't even that hot and when I took it out to put it on it was like vaseline. I hate it.

Wow - this is the perfect rose/gold color and so emolient. I love it. I got is as a thank you for helping them and it is just fabulous. The color is almost two toned and beautiful.
