I rec'd one in a swap and loved it so much that I swapped for 3 more as backups. I have ivory toned skin so it looks much too bright on me if I use it alone so I just use a tiny bit of it and often use a more muted powder blush over it but then it's just perfect and it gives the powder blush a really nice glow! I think I might could use it alone if I use just a tiny, tiny, tiny bit of one drop but I prefer it underneath my favorite powder blush of any color.
I rec'd a half a bottle of this fragrance in a swap, however this bottle is huge, it must be 5 or more ounces so I've got plenty. Hadn't tried it before & some of the reviews I'd read on google complained that you had to reapply it too many times. First, I absolutely love the scent and even though I though the scent had faded, I was shopping and a lady stopped me to ask me what I was wearing because it smelled so good. It has a wonderfully strong scent of blood oranges when you first put it on. I do find myself refreshing it during the day but the scent is so worth it! If I ever used the rest of this huge bottle, I'd definately buy some more or swap for more.
This is my all time favorite mascara and I think I've tried most every brand. I have long lashes and I've found that many mascaras make them look long but the Buxom makes them look thick; as close to false lashes that I've found. Plus it doesn't leave glumps of mascara on my lashes. I've used this for quite some type including their black and their blue colors and I don't have any plans to ever switch. I'd never tried a blue before and was curious as to how it would look. When you pull the applicator out, the color is a bit shocking, but after applying it, I didn't notice that it was really blue; just a bit lighter than the black that I normally use, plus this lighter color makes my eyeshadow stand out more so sometimes I use the blue and sometimes the black.
I rec'd this eyeshadow in a swap and it's my second favorite of all of my eyeshadows that I own. I have very fair ivory color skin with dark brown hair and dark brown eyes and this color looks beautiful on my eyes. It stays on very well, however I've always used eye primer, so I'm not the best judge of that. This was my first time using a Paula Dorf eyeshadow but I will definately be looking for more to try!

I've tried every foundation from drugstore brands to Christian Dior & other high end ones. This one is by far the best I've ever used and I know I'll use this brand forever. Light to put on and it takes very little but it gives incredible coverage and made my complexion look flawless (which it isn't). The price isn't cheap but it only takes a few tiny drops from the pump dispenser to do my entire face. I've really gotten into his products lately and am just floored by the colors and the quality! I'm already in negotiations for another one as a backup although this new one will last a long, long time!
I don't understand all the "iffy" reviews because I simply adore this product. I didn't think I would but someone swapped me a full bottle and I use it EVERY time I put on makeup. I have somewhat oily skin but this never feels oily or makes my skin oily. It does NOT have a lot of concealer like many primers so I still use a primer for the skin perfecting look but this product makes everything glide on effortlessly and makes my skin feel so healthy. Even though I swapped for it this time I will definately "buy" it when I run out because this will be a staple of mine from now on.
