In a word, it smells "sexy"...also very clean. I don't like floral, powder or most of the stuff that's out. I can tolerate citrus but this is hands down my favorite - ever.

I suggest ordering a sample, it's so unique and will play off your body's natural chemistry, which is why it literally has 1 note. Research it, it's quite interesting.

I've been using this as a face cream for about a week and it's currently very cold and windy in NYC. I have to say I really like it because it's moisturizing, absorbs quickly and works well under my makeup. I actually apply twice before makeup and it keeps my skin really soft. Highly recommend for adults with combo skin, more on the dry side when it's cold.

***Copied this from my review on Sephora.com***

Let me preface this review with - I suffer with severe dry, sensitive and yet watery eyes (good times). Eye doc told me I can't wear contacts b/c of how dry my eyes are.

I didn't have any expectations for this product assuming it too would disappear as soon I applied it the waterline. I was so wrong. This glides on …

The first time I used it, I thought it was ok. Nothing crazy, just OK. After a week of using this, exclusively, I can say that I am not impressed. I gave it 2 lippies - 1 for the "cute" tube, 1 for the brush shape. I didn't see this amazing volume (mild at best) and absolutely no length.

I will keep it as a backup mascara, Benefits - They're Real is still my #1. As …

I swear by (not really) Dior or Tarte liners but I grabbed this in three colors one morning b/c I forgot my travel makeup bag at home (doh!). I absolutely, positively wasn't expecting much from this liner but lemme tell ya - the black liner (only one I've tried of the 3) stays put. I have a cold and can't stop blowing my nose, which of course causes watery eyes and still no …Read more

Middle of the road mascara.

Pros: Inexpensive, some length, some volume.

Cons: Hard brush, potential to clump, kind of wet formula.

It's meh - keep at work for an "oops, I forgot my good mascara/makeup bag at home" day, it will do a fairly decent job as a backup to your backup. The brush is almost identical to LashBlast, which I also view as …

I think I can call off the drugstore mascara search for a while. I first tried this mascara around 2008/2009 - whenever it first came out and initially I wasn't impressed b/cof two major issues at the time.The smell was my #1 issue - very strong, chemical odor. #2 - spider legs. Fast forward to last week when I entertained this mascara again. Through the years I have purchased every single …Read more
