This is SUCH an amazing color, super bright electric pink - but as most reviewers have said, it takes 4 coats + a topcoat to look good, and then it chips in less than 2 days. Very disappointed with the quality, I wore this out to the cottage last weekend and by Saturday afternoon my whole pointer finger had chipped off and most tips of the other fingers had too!! I was left with gross looking chipped fingers for the rest of the weekend. Sigh. I use a good topcoat (seche vite) so it's definitley the polish's fault. Too bad because it is a fabulous color!

After searching high and low for a good daily moisterizer with SPF, I decided to try this one. Alot of the reviews said this was not greasy, fast absorbing and light feeling so I was very excited! However, I experienced the exact opposite. I find it to be a very weird facial moisterizer, when I initially pump it into my palm and try to spread it on my face, it doesn't spread very easily at all, which would lead you to believe it might actually be fast absorbing. But once you do get it spread out - it just sits there! Doesn't sink in, feels sticky to the touch for the entire day, and makes my whole face super shiny. I can't even dust on bronzer after this product because the powder just gets stuck right where the brush first touches my face. I don't mind the smell, like some other reviews, but overall I actually hate this product and dread using it every morning, but it was expensive so I'm just going to finish it and never purchase again. Super disappointing.
I absolutely LOVE this perfume. Been in love for about 5 years now, this is my all time favorite! It's really expensive so I don't wear it every day (though I wish I could!) I save this perfume for date nights and special occasions mostly. It's fresh and flirty while still being sophisticated and mature. My only con is that it doesn't last longer, if I wear it during the day I will reapply before going out at night. Overall - Love Love Love!
PROS: -volumizing -nice big brush CONS: -super flakey -dries up really fast, you need to apply it fast or it dries and clumps -also dries up in the bottle fast -hard to remove. Overall I wouldn't spend the $ on this product again, leaves flakes all over underneath my eyes and is hard to remove!

Been using this moisterizer for 3 years and I do love it! It's light, fresh but yet provides the perfect amount of hydration for the summer. (I switch to a heavier cream for winters) The only problem is - there's no SPF!! I hate layering sunscreen over face moisterizer, so that's a real negative for me. I've tried to biotherm aquasource with SPF 15 and it felt sticky and dried out my skin. Other than the lack of SPF in this cream - it's great!!
