After all the rave reviews, I purchased "Vivid". The color in the tube looked intense, but it barely showed up on my lips! Also, it didn't last anywhere near as long as my MAC lipglasses. I won't be repurchasing.
I'm a HUGE fan of Sundressing, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on the supposedly "improved" version. I was disappointed. The "deep/dark" is not nearly as dark as the Sundressing and it just doesn't seem to provide the same amount of coverage. I'll probably continue to buy this since it's still the next best bronzer, but I plan to write MAC and beg them to bring Sundressing back.
I'm not sure about this color. The pink is a little brighter than I expected, and the blue pearl effect almost gives it a violet look. On the positive side, the shine is unreal and the staying power seemed better than most of the MAC lipglasses.

Loved the sample, so I ran out and bought a bottle and the matching body lotion. I am so dissappointed -- this stuff has NO staying power on me!

This is my favorite self-tanner. I keep trying everything new that comes out, but I come back to Sun Ultra Dark everytime. I prefer the lotion to the spray -- the color seems to developer darker.

I did smell great at first -- loved the citrusy smell -- but after a few hours it developed the dreaded self-tanner smell. Still, I was pleased with the easy application, quick drying, and the streak-free color. I will probably repurchase.
I knew there were mixed reviews of Oyster Girl when I ordered it, but I was hoping it would work for me. Unfortunately, as some of the others said, it barely showed up on my lips. I agree with the comments that it's not as sticky and long-lasting as the other lipglasses I've purchased. I don't usually return makeup, but this is going back. I'm going to stick with MAC Prr and my Smashbox lipglosses.

Love this stuff! It makes my hair so shiny and straight, yet doesn't leave it feeling greasy or heavy. Another unexpected plus is that it doesn't seem to make my hair feel dirty the next day -- I can get away without shampooing if I'm in a lazy mood.

I love this stuff, and I've used just about every foundation out there, from the cheapest to the most expensive. It makes my 43 year old skin glow, and I swear I've noticed a difference in texture since I've been using it.

I agree that this really made a mess of my feet and ankles. The color on the rest of my body wasn't bad, but a few days later I was spotty and peeling like a lizard. I'll stick to my Au Courant and SUN ultra-dark.

I was looking for something to replace my hg lipstick, Shine Delice in Strawberry Smash, which was discontinued. While this cost about three times as much, I feel it's worth every penny. The color is wonderful -- a very pretty pink with a nice glossy shimmer. It also feels incredibly light and moisturizing on my lips. I can't wait to try some of the other shades.
I like most of Jane's eye zings, but this one was just a glittery mess. I was very disappointed....

I love this scent! It definitely has cinnamon & peach undertones. The only problem is that it doesn't seem to last one my skin.
This is my "sexy" fall/winter scent. I think it has chocolate/musky undertones. I always feel very classy yet sexy when I wear it.

Love this! It also layers with almost any other scent.
