Beautiful sparkling, sheer cranberry color. Reminds me exactly of my old Chanel Spark glossimer that I somehow managed to lose not long after purchasing it. These MK glosses blew me away with how great they are- beautiful colors, nice lasting power, affordable price and practical packaging. Hooray!
I've never worn a Mary Kay gloss in my life but my mom got me this as a gift. I thought to myself, yeah thanks, old lady make up, great. This stuff is rad. The texture is awesome and totally comprable to MAC or Chanel. The color is a sparkly, sheer coral, perfect! Affordable at $13. A great discovery. I am so pleased with it.
I thought this stuff was just awful. Fortunately, I didn't spray any on myself, I just smelled it out of the bottle and it was so sweet it made my head spin. Even my 70 year old grandmother who wears cheap drugstore perfume was nauseated. I'm suprised at SJP for stamping her name on this olfactory disaster but then again, celebrities should stick to being famous and not launch hideous scents a la Brit, Paris and Celine.
This is the most delicious Yankee candle tart I've ever smelt. I'm restraining myself from tasting the wax. It smells absolutely wonderful and I bought 5 for back up. Warm and homey and cozy. Good job Yankee Candle!!!
This is great for a cheapo drugstore mascara! I am truly impressed with its quality. I find that it works best for me when I wipe off the wand before using it, which enables me to put on several thin layers. I doubt I'll be spending $22 on Diorshow anymore after discovering this. Thanks ladies!
This is an awesome red for anyone into red lipstick or retro makeup. Vivid, matte red with just a kick of orange. Perfect for a 1940's mouth. Any red lover should have this in her arsenal.

First of all, I love this stuff and I generally hate powder of any sort! I don't use it everyday, just when I have a problem area and need to set my concealor. I use a brush but I've never had a problem with it being too light or chalky. It's great powder- genuinely translucent, scent-free and long lasting. The HUGE container will last someone like me a long time so its worth the investment!

I loved the color and texture of this gloss- its been described quite well by the other reviewers. I HATED the smell though! It smells like cherry cough syrup to me. Perhaps they were trying to actually make it smell like kirsch? I don't know but I literally ran to the bathroom to wipe it off! Maybe I just got a bad tube?

Great, great stuff. I wear it only on my face. It doesnt break me out or cause me to get greasy at all. No offensive chemical smells and it feels like a light moisturizer once on; doesn't interfere with other makeup like concealor. A little goes a looooong way! When I first put it on, I've noticed a white-ish cast but it quickly fades after a minute or two.
This is my everyday mascara (Diorshow for nights, weekends etc). It lengthens my lashes, seperates them nicely and seems to give them a slight curl. I'm not exactly sure what it claims to do but I love it. Affordable, non-irritating and works very well for me. It's worth a try as most of the time you can get it at CVS for around $5 plus a tube of cream eyeshadow.
Expensive but great. The texture is excellent, not sticky at all but more of a gloss balm. The color is absolutely perfect for summer- sheer, true red. Does not pink up on me as many other sheer red glosses do; if anything, it borders on a tomato-y color. If you're into reds, definately get this gloss.

I agree with the previous reviewer- if Chanel made this it would be a sell-out everywhere! I LOVE this stuff. Gives my lips a nice peachy glow. I wear it over Nars' Galaxy Girl lipstick and Chanel's Showgirl for a nice peachy nude lip. Hooray for this product!
This stuff is gross. It looks like a crazy old lady's pancake makeup to me. I tried it once and was horrified at the results. I have a friend who wears this and it looks awful on her too. I don't have the heart to tell her that it looks as cakey as it does... it highlights any facial hair, dry skin, blemishes, etc. Ugh.
The reviewer below me is an idiot. There was really absolutely no need for a paragraph long discourse on discerning compliments from people who hate your perfume. If you don't like the smell, fine. If the women in your office don't like the smell, fine. Hey, great! Diversity makes the world go round. But insinuating that anyone who wears Chance smells like "like rotting meat covered by something sickeningly sweet in an attempt to cover the stench" and just doesn't know it yet is moronic. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Please, however, refrain from implying that in a "civilized society", every woman would refrain from wearing such a ghastly scent lest they offend their passive-aggressive co-workers' noses. Grow up.
I just have to reiterate how much I LOVE Diorshow after today's disgusting run-ins with Chanel mascaras. I will buy this as long as they make it. Truly the best mascara ever.
