I finally gave into the hype and bought the new odor-free, firming version of this in the med-tan shade.

Initially it is indeed odor-free, but I do smell a very faint but distinctive self-tanner smell sometimes, usually 2 hours or less after I've used it. However, because it is pretty good for firming (at least for me) and the color development has been DIVINE, I will keep using …

Love, love, love this.

Recently "discovered" this brand since I was looking for something that didn't dry out my hair - and that did a better job of detangling than my B&B Styling Lotion. Tried this on a whim and couldn't be more pleased with it.

Light, vaguely floral scent, doesn't weigh hair down or make it greasy, and really gets the tangles …

I ordered it online and when I finally got over the initial shock over the palette size and cracked it open, I'm now using it every single day.

Great set of neutrals - nice brush (tho I think it's too big for this palette, lol) - and of course I love the primer. The shadows themselves are really awesome - everything you need for a understated neutral look or a smoked out …

I have three of these because I use this brush so often. . .

Great for really getting a good wash of shadow on your lid and the bristles are super soft and don't shed. Not as ideal for blending, although with repeated use the brush bristles get more flexible. Perfect shadow application every time with this one, and it really saves me some time in the morning.

Great …

I've worn this on and off for years and love it.

Lots of bourbon vanilla, white floral, fruit and a bit of cedar here. But mostly sophisticated vanilla and spice. Initially its a big blast, nearly overwhelming, but it settles right down to a scent that becomes very much a part of you. I get many "you smell amazing"s with this scent - for me, it is indeed alluring. ;) …

I really love this shadow, and I can understand why it is so widely admired.

Lovely beige-pink-champagne color, more of a neutral tone so I think it looks good on lots of people. Very shimmery - lovely lid color but I think I like it best as a brow highlight. It really does a great job at that - my whole face looks awake and rested! I've tried a ton of these types of shadows - …

So far, this is my favorite PP ever.

Light to medium flawless finish, excellent color match (I use Fair) for my fair, pink-y toned skin, little to no oxidization, and STAYS PUT without feeling heavy and cakey.

I use this in conjunction with the Amazonian Clay foundation and it's the best my skin has ever looked (with makeup). I have extremely sensitive skin and I have …

LOVE.

I have fine but thick hair with whole-head color and highlights (I'm naturally a brunette but like to have a little salon oomph added, lol). I've religiously used Bumble and Bumble's Styling Lotion and I love it, but noticed that my normally smooth hair was getting tangles, dry ends, flyaways, and just didn't look its best. And when you spend money on color …

Mar/05/2013

I think I may have finally found a HG bronzer.

I have a lot of pink in my fair skin, and so many bronzers go orange, muddy, or just plan oompa loompa on me, which is really disappointing. And as much as I love my BB Bronze Shimmerbrick, I use that more for a highlight. I've tried just about every brand, and although there are many bronzers I really liked, no one product really …

I think this scent is lovely - balmy, lemony citrus with fresh green accords and some white floral thrown in for good measure. It totally conjures up thoughts of the coastal Italy, the beach, summer, etc for me. When I use this, I think of a perfect romantic vacation. :)

However, it has NO staying power whatsoever and that drives me crazy!

I have several other scents I …
