I absolutely detested this product when I first bought it; because I felt that it left my hair far too 'crunchy' but pleasantly frizz-free. I tried it again a few months later, learning to apply it directly in the shower and then to rinse it off for a split second, then wrap my hair for a few minutes and let it do it's own curling thing. Now I sorely regret not stocking up on it when I last saw it in a shop!
This is possibly the BEST gloss I've ever tried! The colour is absolutely marvelous, a perfect clear without being too trashy-shiny, and though the scent is rather unusual and requires getting used to, the texture is wonderful: it has just enough viscosity to stay put without being like my previous favourites Lancome Juicy Tubes and MAC LipGlasses, which were too sticky, and Estee Lauder's Crystal Lipgloss, which wasn't sticky enough. *Tip* I mix Lisse Gloss # 1 with MAC's Crystal Beach Lip Glass in order to tone down the intensity of the MAC gloss; plus you get that divine cake-batter taste!
I was genuinely surprised to read the rather negative comments about this scent! Sure enough; perfume smells differently on everyone, yet it still strikes me as rather bizarre that it is this disliked to this extent. I've been wearing this, and pretty much only this; with the exception of Lolita Lempicka at night, for about a year and half now, such that whenever I spray it, I don't even smell it anymore, but my friends all associate this scent with me because so few people wear it. It reminds me of dark, cool nights in Egypt spiced up by large hookah-pipes filled with honey-flavoured nakhla tobacco. It's a very seductive, elegant and intense scent, very continental, one that grows on you until you crave it. Not for the faint-hearted, that's for sure!

This scent will forever remind me of one of my (now) best friends, who was an old love interest... whenever I smell it I automatically whip my head around because I expect him to be there. There's something so magical and enticing about it... it reminds me of the best sex I've ever had!

Absolutely DIVINE! I adored this mascara from the second I tried it on: the square brush fattened up my lashes a.s.a.p. and although mascara on me smudges, without fail, this has never ever done so and my lashes have never felt plusher and thicker. My only complaint is that I used it up so quickly!
