The Scorpio wig has been touted as such a great hairpiece that I bought one to wear on bad hair days. But it is not going to fool anyone. The part is really fuzzy, and the shape is like a blockhead. Bought on sale, so I could not return it.

I just picked this up based on MUA reviews, because my hair got severly coarse and dry from e-salon color. I've been using this treatment for just a few days and already see real improvement. I add a dollop to my shampoo lather, massage in, rinse out, don't use anything else. I airdry my hair, and the curl and shine are returning. Looking forward to using a flat iron again soon.
The best concealer for me yet. I use it around my eyes, above my brow to soften some redness, and around my nose. I have a light beige complexion, and I use #202. The packaging, as others have said, isn't so great--you can't tell if you have anything left until, well, you don't have anything left! And the brush gets a little splayed, so I took a lippie off for packaging (and price.) But the product itself? Sublime.

I have searched far and wide for the right orange-based scent that isn't fruity kid stuff full of vanilla sugar or musk. This is cool, light, and just right. I can wear it all day and feel refreshed. I love the packaging on this line--my personal symbol is a bee!
My very first perfume, for my 16th birthday. Wore it through early college--soft, elegant, complex, a training ground for my nose. Made me feel so adult. Over the years Guerlain changed Shalimar, and I changed, too, and we parted ways. I recently bought a vintage bottle, and of course it reminds me of those early years. I don't wear it, just like to smell it once in a while. Shalimar was my first love, and I'll always have her in my corner.
Memory in a bottle: One December in Amsterdam, many many years ago, I spotted an incredibly chic girl in a knit cap in a canal boutique. She splashed on some Mitsouko and she smelled like...well, like what I wanted to be -- assured and fun and cool. I promptly bought a bottle and had a two-year liaison with Mitsouko until she was usurped by L'Heure Bleu. But that is another memory...
Relatively expensive, but worth it if you have mature dry skin. I use it daily--three pumps of product on my finger tips, rub together to get it creamy, pat and smooth for a soft-focus finish that stays put. No retouch needed all day. Now on my third bottle (lasts me about 3 months), but gave it four stars for the price and the opaque packaging--you can only tell when you reach the end of the bottle because the little nozzle pops off.

I am so pale I needed to bronze it up a bit while on vacation, so bought this from Target (no Sephora on the road...) It is very yellow on me and it makes me look jaundiced and glittery. Priced OK, but just not working for me. Also, you can't get to the product and use the mirror in this compact at the same time--poor design IMO.
Not as "hot pink" as the name implies, but a nice bright raspberry.
A classic red. Pantone 201C. Good one-coat coverage, but chips readily.
Notes: vanilla and metallic sandalwood. No hint of the touted peach/apricot or rose. A soft powdery fragrance suitable for a lovely lady in her 70's or 80's +. But definitely elderly.
Fabulous results. Saw the difference from the first use, and I take good care of my skin. I like that I can use it in the shower.
yes i just had to try it because i was intrigued by the texture, but Susi Weiss-Fischmann you should be ashamed for putting this on the market.

dreadful stale smell.
Very nice texture, good for mature skin. Like the packaging/delivery system--keeps the product sanitary and is easy to measure out. UPDATE: the metallic foil on the top of the container blisters with time and the metal flakes come off on your hand--that needs to be readdressed.
