I like this even though I don't like thick formulas, but it glides on dark, & morphs into a natural look. No breakouts, so I'll continue to use this. Don't be afraid of the dark color, or thick texture, it works, but very sheer cover.

Not sure if this is going to be in their line much longer as I found it deeply discounted(bought the last two on shelf). I've used it for a few years & love the results- I mix alittle with tinted moisturizer, or foundation- maybe a dab above my eyebrows, & it blends well, isn't shocking if a dab is used, & price is right. I've had high beam & it was too drying, too expensive. If you see it, buy it- recommended. When I skip this I notice I look washed out & way old.
This is not something I would use again. I got very stiff, straight out lashes with this. It also had no staying power. My lashes were dry & crunchy after one wear. I like other L'Oreal mascara, but this is not one of them.
The reissued bottle is plain-alot like Hanae Mori Butterfly- But it doesn't fall over like older bottle. They have improved on this slightly, no more powdery drydown, holds up for hours, but almost same top notes. I love that I can wear this for day or night- never offends anyone. I keep using daily even through I have alot of other options to choose from. I gave packaging 4 as it is improvement on old version, but not special. This isn't floral at all, so those that love florals should pass.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Olive Oil as Serum for Hair

The expensive serums out there are no better than this. The smell is awlful, but it fades. I only apply to the ends of my hair, & aliitle on palms for flyaways to smooth. Once in awhile I use it to coat my hair from nape down before shampooing to protect it, esp if using anti-residue shampoo.
I've never had alot of luck with eyeliner, but this does the job-easy to use & lasts all day. I line my top inner lash line & it works as well as Wicked, but at 1/5 the cost. I wear contacts & no issues there. Give this a try.

Compared to the more expensive serums this is wonderful. I've tried them all & the only difference between this & salon products is the price. Also, the shampoo/conditioner works great on my hair-straight/fine/long. Recently tried the mousse & it didn't dry out my ends like most do. This line is impressing me, & I'm very cautious with what I put on my hair.
I have used this for a few years now-on my face, & I can't find anything as good for my skin. I have combination skin, sensitive, few fine lines around eyes. Why spend alot of bucks when this works, simple. My M.D. even asked me what products I use, he said it seems to work, keep it up.
Very pleased...It is a heavy fall scent, alot like Safari toned down, & much improved. The top note isn't as pleasant as the dry down, so it settles well. Not a day scent, but I'll be wearing this afterhours all fall/winter.
I miss it, BUT I just got a sample of Notorious(new Lauren scent), & it is very similar. So much that I'm thinking they used Safari as a base,turned it up, gave it a little sassy name, & seems new.
For the price this is great. I took advise of the VS girl & used the lotion & then butter on top for the drier areas. I keep going back to this esp when I need extra moisture. My only complaint is it can smell waxy if I use it alone, need to layer it with lotion or cream.
Been using this for a few years, & keep going back to it. The color is great when I'm tan, but I don't attempt it in winter. It does need 2-3 coats to look great, but it's worth the time, as it will last a week easily. I've gone through a dozen bottles, so I guess it's my favorite.
Really miss Victoria. The only good scent they have had. I "like" a few of the garden ones, but none of the perfume compares to Victoria. Once in awhile I catch whiff of someone wearing something similar, but nothing exactly like it.
Love this pink when I have deep tan, color looks great on toes with dark brown sandles. Strange but true story- I had a traffic cop in downtown Chicago yell at me to come closer for a look at my toes(during 5P/M rush)-can be seen through crowds, so if you want to be bold go for this one.
