This makes my hair look like Jennifer Aniston's...soft and silky.

I am older, with hair that is straight and very long. It's also color-treated.

I use this product on wet/damp hair, and when I blow-dry and flat-iron my hair it is soft and silky. It also keeps my hair from getting static.

I knocked one lippy off this product because it does not make …

Wow - what a disappointment!

I thought I would love this. It features mandarin, fresh coconut, and apple peel in the top, jasmine sambac, freesia and magnolia in the heart, and coconut cream, white sandalwood and cottonwoods.

I love coconut, and tropical/sweet, but the initial smell of this is awful...like slightly coconut and PLASTIC. It's a weird smell, and I …

I got this for about $48 on fragrance.net. The package was smaller than I thought it would be.

SAs try to put me in Rose (which I also bought), but MUAers suggested Beige.

This is nice, but subtle. I used it all over my face on top of foundation. I was immediately disappointed, because I didn't see anything, but when I got in the car and looked in the rearview mirror …

I thought I would love this-sounded right up my alley, but I don't like it at all.

I think it's the mango that is so off-putting to me. It's the smell of some fruit, almost like a honey smell, but it smells awful to me. That first awful smell wears off after a while, and then it doesn't smell so bad. But I don't love it.

Also, after pigging out on …

This is limited edition and getting hard to find and expensive on ebay. I won this slightly used in an auction with Taj Sunset.

I'm giving this 5 lippies, even though I want to subtract one lippie for not enough staying power. It does NOT stay for a long time.

But IMO this is almost a perfect perfume. It's sweet and fresh without being cloying, and even though I …

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Microquatic Pro-juvenation Reparative Facial Cream

These products are very inexpensive at Ross-I think I paid $10 for it, and it had originally cost $80+ (I'll revise this when I get home and look at the box).

The smell is very nice-smells like a wonderful perfume I have, but can't put my finger on it. But it is a very light perfume smell, and it disappears once you apply the moisturizer. I don't like a lot of products …

This is a very nice color-it looks scary in the tube, but it applies quite sheer (but can be built up for more color).

It's a warm burgundyish plum...and it looks good on me, and I have red hair. I don't think this is "brown", but it is warm enough to wear if you normally can't wear plums, and it's not so bright that it looks garish.

Applied …

Fragrances - Dolce&Gabbana - The One Eau de Parfum

Nov/20/2013

This starts out nice, but then it gets a slightly powdery, almost old-lady smell...like grandma at church.

Eventually a slightly more vanilla smell starts to come through, but never quite makes it, and at the end it has a kind of spicy smell (I think the musk with maybe the vetiver or amber?). Finally, after 7+ hours, I smell vanilla with a little musk.

I probably will …

This smells a lot better than the EDP IMO.

It's lighter and smells nice-just a nice little light, sweet scent.

Not bad, not wonderful.... It's nice, and I would wear it. I wouldn't scrimp and save for it, though.

I've been seeing a lot of this at Ross lately, so it's kinda cheap.

It has a little bit of "old lady" …

I got this cheap at Marshalls (maybe Ross)

An innocuous scent, a little sweet and floral.

I expected something more dramatic.

This is nothing special. There are plenty of other nice, simple, sweet fragrances to bother with this one, but it is ok to give as a gift or grab for yourself.

I don't think it has enough "personality" to be …
