i have fine, color treated hair but a lot of it. my hairdresser recommended this and the hydrate conditioner to me after my hair fried up b/c of fertility drugs. this and jojoba oil saved my hair. i can go 2 plus days without shampooing now, and the longer i use it, the better it gets! expensive, but so concentrated...it does not lather much b/c it does not contain the harsh soapy chemicals, but your hair will still be really clean and minty smelling. plus it's vegan!!!!
i ran out of my stilllife a couple of weeks ago and could not find the time to get a replacement. thought i would attempt to live without, but was miserable. life is miserable without MAC paint. use under every single eyeshadow i own. now i have my new tube and am happy again.
one of my staple colors for over 5 years. fair, blue eyes, leaves a natural look but you still look done. a powder, but blends so creamily, and lasts all day without flecks of shimmer landigng on your cheeks.
absolutely beautiful scent, smells just like my wedding bouquet. but it doesnt last!!!! dries down too quick...taking a break but next time i get it i will try to layer with the lotion or something.
recent convert. i am glad not everyone likes it so i can go on smelling lovely and delicious. so different and makes me feel like i am on the beach. my husband never notices perfume (i wear lots of different ones), but he commented on this and followed me around for like three days after i started using it.
the only product worth a toot from benefit. have used this for 5 plus years, and will always have it...one bottle lasts for EVER! prob only good for fairer skin tones, and you have to blend fast, but once you get the hang of it you look like you have been hanging out on a swiss mountaintop, fresh as a daisy. great stuff, have turned all my homies on to it as well.

awesome, awesome, awesome, i have found my daily sunscreen! melts into the skin, absolutely no breakouts or irritation for this sensitive girl. i have been looking for something this comfortable and effective for years.
great stuff if you have the time to blend. does not do well in my undereye area, but elsewhere is fabulous and covers each and every sin. wish they woudl come up with something to keep it from caking over eye cream though....

love my la mer, have gone and tried other things because i am fickle, but i keep coming back. now decided to try immortelle by l'occitane, b/c i heard it was even better...we shall see. my 1oz jar lasts me at least 4 mos....you people who dont like it are prob using too much. a little time consuming, but worth it!

such an awesome find!!! fertility hormones/meds wrecked havoc on my skin and hair, and this little bottle singlehandedly put the luster and balance back in both. i even use it on my face under my sunscreen, and as a styling product for the ends of my hair. no scent which is nice as well.
awesome color, even on my most washed out days ( i am v. fair)it can make me look wide awake and healthy. also lasts a loooong time so the price is fine. good finely milled shimmer, not too glittery, perfect in the summer.
