This was great. just as described and my hair stayed fresh as it was when I first styled it. The fragrance is too old fashioned however, and I'd like not to smell like my grandmother. :)
I was fond of the original Orgasm but thought it didn't have the umph I expected of it. This new blush is everything the orignial should have been! When opening or applying, there is going to be some loose glitter, but the key is in the application. Applying this blush with a large blush brush will disperse the glitter into a finer mill, and allowing the blush to do it's magic! The new blush is a deeper pigmented blush but with the glitter material, this gives an even more dewy glow than the original without the color overwhelming the look. It's absolutely immaculate and is definitely my new HG blush!
WTF, my face is so greasy and my face broke out instantly. I had to take the stuff off. Leave it for bodily use. I use clinique facial products daily and this has been my only negative experience.

I love the way this stuff works. It removes one of the excuses of putting sunscreen on everyday. It's an instant spray you can put on the most important parts of your body: back and neck, front chest, arms and back of hands... When I first tried it on, I noticed that if I sprayed it well, my skin was glowy and stayed that way for hours. Looks great if thats what you want. Other than that, strong fragrance, though very nice smelling. I just don't like INHALING spray. What can you do? It's spray! Anyways, I think it's worth it and will keep repurchasing until I find something better.

Although I prefer Shisheido, this is decent. I however do experience stinging slightly sometimes, as well as breaking out. It doesn't dry so easily sometimes. I find it works just fine. Just not liking the dryness or pore clogging.

I have already been in love with the 55+ liquid so I thought I'd try this. I'm totally addicted now. I love the transclucent white glow. It makes your skin look young and glowing. Unbelieveable! I use it so much now I can't live without it. No pore clogging, no stinging, and works great to go over makeup. I also use it on my hands sometimes.
Love the opposite end as it reaches my outer lashes that can never be reached and adds beautiful volume. Makes my lashes look like falsies without the spidery effect or clumping that even Diorshow tends to do if you aren't good at this. This is a total HG. I like to use this in combination with Diorshow.
For off days, or for smoothing out eyes, this is the best. I love that all of the Clinique mascaras wash out beautifully and act so light. Only problem is, they smudge easy. This one isn't very noticeable on me, and only seems to darken lashes. Very natural. It does what it should.

I have been using Diorshow since 2006, and haven't gone back to anything else. I thought I'd try this because I loved the regular and waterproof so much, but this one clumps funny on my lashes and for some very weird reason BURNS the corners of my eyes. WHY? Going back to the regular....

unbelieveable. Glimmer/shimmer/glow quality is the highest I've ever found in a shimmering glow pressed powder, or... anything for that matter. I have the darkest shade and use it to bronze or highlight. It's cannot be compared to. 100% BEST EVER!
O. . . M . . . G!!!! First off, I haven't been able to find a decent foundation besides Clinique because: A. Looks cakey and made up (too much) B. Breaks me out or irritate the skin C. or don't cover up and look off colored Even though Clinique and Neutrogena have been the closest I could get to a natural looking, dewy (without being oily) coverage. The first tends to be too peachy or orange, and the later never covers enough or lasts long. HOWEVER, until today... I have found my HG foundation! wow! Not only does it give you a glow, and this is no glow I could ever compare anything else to (this really looks amazing in it's dewyness), it doesn't rub off or sweat off in the heat. I haven't had any adverse reactions to it. It's consistency is similar to Clinique's original dramatically different lotion, so I would suggest finding a pump to go with this bottle to keep it clean. It's the best foundation I've ever found and will never go back to anything else ever again!
so far I'm impressed. I usually have very dryed out skin from cleansers and I use everything from Biore, Clearasil (sp?), Neutrogena to Clinique and Mary Kay. This stuff doesn't dry me out. Go figure. Don't know why. It works for me. I'm not happy that its made with what it is and don't know why it would work. It smells and feels like hair shampoo. Is it the same ingredients? So far, I like it. hrmmmm.
what. the. heck. I have used everything from Maybelline to Dior for volume mascaras and this one was the worst. -no volume (and I have long lashes!) - eyelashes fall out if I wipe my eyes - really dry I can never say I'd ever try this again. I had read the reviews and this just doesn't do it for me. Sticking to Full n' Soft and Diorshow.
What the heck? I was all excited about Neutrogena's new mascara and wanted to find something cheaper than my beloved Diorshow. Not a chance. This stuff, when put on properly, does absolutely nothing. I have full long lashes so it should have been noticeable but amazingly seemed like it actually made my lashes less noticeble than BEFORE I put on mascara. So confused..
