Not a fan. The coverage is good, I must admit - although must be applied with a light hand as not to look too heavy. This makeup is far too irredescent for the regular gal, it is very shimmery. More so than MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish and Pur Minerals. I can actually see the sparkling particles, and they're really not that tiny and can get stuck in your pores.

After a …

YUM! My boyfriend goes nuts when I wear this! It's VERY moisturizing - be careful - a little goes a long way - so I use it primarily on my legs and thighs and just a WEE bit on my stomach and arms. The smell is intoxicating - so delicious . . . .does a fantastic job at moisturizing - and the effects are lasting. Took 1 point off as it's a little thicker than I would prefer (pretty …Read more

My FAVORITE MAC eyeshadow! It's so versatile. It's AMAZING. I use a tiny bit in the corners of my eyes and blend - to create a subtle smoky eye. I also use it as a liner no my upper lids and lower lids - and it looks fantastic! Very sexy. Color is more towards the cool side and looks fabulous with my taupes and muted purples. I will never be without it - it blends so beautifully …Read more

I used to use this waaaaay back when I was a teen. I always found it quite heavy - so I mixed it with a drop of moisturizer. Anyhow - I had a sample and decided to give it a whirl. This dries fast let me tell you! If applied lightly - it can blend it pretty well and give a nice finish - from AFAR. From afar my face looked amazing! When I took a closer look when I got to work - my face …Read more

Oh my - I did not like this at all. First of all - it is very chalky and the powder does not seem of high quality - - i.e. it is really not that smooth and can harden up in the compact. Trust me - swipe your finger over Estee Lauder's Doublewear Powder or Guerlain's Parure powder and then try this. See the difference? Very poor quality. Reminds me of Merle Norman's powder …Read more

I did not like this at all. At best, it is a tinted moisturizer. For the price, it's pointless! I gave it a point as it spreads quite easily, and the pump dispenser is ideal. That's about it. If you're looking for coverage - don't count on it with this one. Tinted moisturizer with sunscreen - this is your gem.

Started using this when I was 13 as it made my legs so smooth and silky. After years of experimentation, I have come back to it and am now 25.

The consistency is light and milky - a little goes a LONG way and I highly recommend using this sparingly as too much may make you feel a little greasy.

My skin literally drinks this up and is as smooth (or smoother) than a …

Wow! I actually love the smell of this. It reminds me exactly of Tommy Hilfiger's "Tommy" (for women). The texture is a light gel that spreads very easily. It is only slightly sticky. My skin soaked it up immediately. For reference, I am 25 years old, 5'4 and weigh approximately 115 pounds. Guess that would be considered average, however I do not exercise and am …Read more

While the scent was nice and light, this did absolutely nothing for my dry, dyed hair (dark brown with subtle hilights). When I blowdried my hair after applying this when it was damp, it felt very gunked up and was a frizzy mess. Did not add any shine whatsoever and my hair was so gunky I had to wash it again, which I have never had to do before, unfortunately. I did not overuse this product - …Read more

YUCK! Heavily scented - a sickingly sweet, very strong chocolate / almond / mint / chemical flavour - very artificial. Found it extremely greasy, and like another reviewer mentioned - when you rub this into your skin - little white bits flake off!

Good thing about this is yes - -it is a heavy duty moisturizer.

But, in that case, I'd rather smear Crisco all over my …
