Horrible!!! I tried this even after reading other reviewer's "hot roots" comment, something I was really afraid of getting. I have dark brown hair with probably 50% gray mixed in. Been coloring since early 20s (I'm 47). I never imaging the lovely rich dark brown color on the box would turn my roots orange!!! It did. I had to recolor with clairol to fix my roots. This product may work well on someone with little or no gray. Beware if you have gray. What a mess.
Love it. Lasts forever. I use this mostly on dark circles. I have tried EVERYTHING, and this is hands down, the best.
Beautiful... Must agree, nothing like jeux de peau, which I also love. I own douce amere, datura noir, un bois vanille, chergui & JDP. I got a sample from Aedes and immediatly fell in love. Not normally a fan of rose, but the combination with cocoa, sandelwood, delicious. But not gourmand. Just warm and sexy. Whenever I wear UBV, JDP and this fragrance, I always hear...you smell good, what it that?
Very pretty. Translucent shimmery pink and gold. Really nice with white French tips. I love it!
Wow! I started coloring my hair at 18, for the fun of it. Now at 45, it is a necessity due to an abundance of gray. I have tried EVERY drugstore and beauty supply color over the years with mixed results. I have naturally dark brown hair, and this color is my color but better. Completely covers gray, doesn't fade, is multi-dimentional, gentle, just rich and beautiful results. I just can't believe it. I have been looking for these results for years, never imagining they could come from cheap Colorsilk. I was always afraid to try it. I can't recommend it enough. Again, wow!
I really wanted to love this perfume. Deciding that I had to try it on first, I hopped on the train to NYC and landed at Barneys New York. The salesperson gave me 2 light spays, and said...give it about 10 minutes. I kept waiting for the change after 10 minutes. It didn't happen. The scent was disgusting. Repulsive. Nauseating. I'm not sure how to describe it without being vulgar. I'll give some buzz words, and you can use your imagination: unwashed, farm animals, sweat, crotch, cumin, dirt. I never imagined these elements could be captured in a perfume. Or WHY one would want them to be. But somehow, they are. In Muscs Koublai Khan. I have 4 SL perfumes and I love them. Not this one. Yuck. Beware. Try it on before buying.
I initially loved this product. I have been coloring my hair for years, and like to try new products. I used Perfect 10 in a medium to dark brown, and the color was rich and beautiful...for about 1 week. After a few washings, the color faded with an unflattering orange-ish cast, the grays reappeared, and my hair felt like straw. It was dry and tangled after washing, and if not for the Paul Mitchell Detangler, I would not have been able to come through my hair. This is a very harsh product. Perhaps that explains why it only takes 10 minutes to process. I will not use it again, nor would I recommend it.

A girl sat next to me and smelled fantastic. I had to ask her what she was wearing. When she told me JS Fancy, I cringed. I generally like higher end perfumes, Serge Lutens, Creed, L'Artisan etc. I shy away from the drug store Brittney, Paris Hilton garbage. But, this perfume is absolutely lovely! I couldn't stop thinking about it, and even tried it on multiple times before I bought it. I wanted to make sure I wasn't going to waste 40 bucks or so. I ended up buying it at CVS for 25 dollars. It is very pretty, has decent staying power, and changes beautifully over the entire 2 to 3 hours that it lasts. It is gourmand at first, then powdery, then soft and cozy. I love it!
Hair Color -Clairol - Radiance Colorgloss translucent deposit only color

Based on all the positive reviews, I decided to try this type of color. I had naturally dark brown hair (I have to color every 3-4 weeks due to the grays) with more and more grays showing up, probably 30-40%. My roots now seem to be salt & pepper, and I hate it!! My regular permanant color has been making my hair look too dark and flat. I used 1.5 oz Radiance 4N Light Natural Brown with 0.5 oz Clear Gloss and 2.0 oz of developer. The gray roots are not quite as blended as I would have liked, yet overall I'm pretty happy with the results. My hair is super soft, much more so than when I use permanant color. And there is definately a nice shine. I will be curious to see if the next application blends the gray roots better. Overall, I highly recommend this product, especially if you want a color/shine boost and have less than 30% gray, or none at all.
One year ago I would give this curler 5 lippies. It truly was the best eyelash curler ever. I gave so many as gifts. Having to replace it a few months ago, after 2 years of use, I have noticed the new one doesn't curl as well, it pinches my eyes at times, and the black pad keeps falling out. It definately is not the same curler. I am thinking of giving it one more chance and buying another, as my first one was fantastic.
Love it. Men ALWAYS ask me what I'm wearing.
