Really dislike this one. Doesn't make my hair feel good at all. And it doesn't detangle at all, which I really need for my thick, coarse hair. I prefer the Sap Moss Conditioner instead. Its nice that Aveda sells sample sizes.

I have pretty thick coarse color-treated hair. I really love this stuff. I'm kind of surprised by how much a lot of people dislike this conditioner. I do have to use a lot of it, but it leaves my hair feeling great. And I think its really moisturizing. I guess you just have to try it. HG for me.

At first I really liked the way this made my hair feel. But after a few more washings I think it makes my hair feel sort of dirty. I have thick, slightly coarse hair. I love the moisturising feel, but I didn't like how my hair styled afterward. Ho-hum.
I have shoulder-length, thick, slightly coarse, medium-wavy hair. I color it to cover gray, thus it is "slightly coarse". I really like FF products and this is probably my favorite. I live in dry, dry Colorado and a little of thisbefore I blow dry and/or straighten makes my hair much smoother and silkier than other similar products. (Nothing I've tried at home beats a professional blowout, of course.) I like this better than the glossing cream; the glossing cream left a funny greasy feeling in my hair. I

Disappointing. Too much product is delivered by the comb. Gives you really weird "spikey" looking lashes. I had great hopes for it.
This and Diorshow seem like very similar products in my opinion. But there's a big difference in price. I like them both.
This is a very nice mascara. But really expensive. I think Maybelline's Full and Soft is about the same quality, but much less expensive.
VERY WEARABLE RED. I have, in the past, worn almost exclusively, pink and plum colors on my lips. I recently went from having lots of golden brown highlights in my hair to a more sophisticated dark reddish brown and wanted something a little stronger on my lips. Red is tough to wear. I've been experimenting and most colors have seemed a bit too dramatic for the everyday. I'm a big fan of BB, especially her lipshines. One of my favorite lipcolors of all time is the Blackberry lipshine. So I tried Claret and I think I've found a new Holy Grail. This is red on me without being RED! if you know what I mean.... If you're looking for a sophisticated red look, try this one out for sure.
Hate it. Had big expectations and my results were just disappointing. I looked blotchy--and I used the Light! I thought it would be subtle but it was quite dark. The color is natural looking, but the application is nowhere near foolproof. I do think the color lasts longer than most other self-tanners, but I actually wish it would fade a little faster!

If you have trouble just keeping your eyeliner in place--this is a miracle. I've been wearing BB's gel liners ever since they came out, and though I love them I ALWAYS ended up with an arch on my upper eyelid wear my liner smudged. Just not pretty. This stuff keeps it from doing that. And I really don't wear a lot, if any, eyeshadow, on a daily basis so I'm recommending this strongly to anyone who just wears eyeliner and doesn't want that weird eyeliner arch on her upper lid. A GREAT problem-solving product!
I love this. I have fair, yellow-undertoned skin and I recently went from golden-brown highlights to a darker reddish brown hair color. I needed something more intense on my lips and this was gorgeous on me. I worry about my teeth looking yellow and this isn't a problem with this shade, very cool I guess. I'm not sure why I look good in cool colored lipstick when I have warm coloring, but that just seems to be true in genereal. I didn't like Dolce Vita on me at all, so I tried on this one and it's gorgeous.
One of my all time favorites. I'm pretty fair and I worry about my teeth looking yellow with certain lipstick shades. This looks nice on me and my teeth look really white. I couldn't wear the famed Clinique Black Honey (and oh, after seeing it on Julia Roberts I was dying for that look) but this looks nice on me. More reddish I think than BH I guess. Pretty, pretty.
Some of the reviews here really surprise me. I'm 35 and have tried quite a few foundations in my time. This one is just heavenly as far as I'm concerned. The color is perfect. I use the 200. And its so light I didn't think it would cover anything. But it does! And beautifully. I haven't tried ERA yet, I actually thought this was the stuff Carmindy uses on What Not To Wear. Also to note, I don't spray this all over my face I use it in the lines beside my nose where it gets a little red, on my cheeks and chin and a bit on my forehead. I spray a little in each spot then run it in. I'm not sure I'd even try misting it all over. It seems like I'd waste a lot of product, espeicially considering I only need a little bit in each area. I may have just gotten lucky enough to find a perfect color match for my skin. But in general, I think its a superior product.
It makes me look OLD! Hideous.
I gave up on this. It was my first, and my only concealer for years. It just cakes up on me over the day. I like Cle de Peau better. And I'm going to try the new prescriptives concealer too. I love BB, but not this stuff.
