This is the best lotion ever for me! I live in freezing cold Boston and my face gets very red and chapped in the winter. Even though I'm pushing 40 I have really sensitive, acne-prone skin, so I have spent oh... the last 10 years searching for a moisturizer that won't give me instant zits. Thank GOD I found this one. It's really quite cheap and it works! Not dry, not greasy …Read more

YAY! Finally, a keeper! I have dark/medium brown hair, very light (and often ruddy) skin and blue eyes.

COLOR: On me, it's a medium-toned browninsh purple with a little bit of sheen. A light coat seems to just tone down the red of my face and a couple of layers looks pouty and chic. Looks fabu with lots of dark brown eyeliner.

FORMULA: The colour riche formula seems …

I volunteer backstage at a local theater, and lots of the actresses used this onstage. So I tried it on a whim. WOW! It really does the trick when I need 100%, drop-dead, stay-put coverage - like for a day-to-evening outdoor wedding, or a long night out. I only wear it for certain situations, and lots of compliments from other ladies my age whenever I wear it.

My skin is oily AND …

This is really good stuff! Not stiff at all, and works well on my wavy, heavy hair. Agree with y'all below - makes a ponytail look like a real hairdo. Smooths the sides, fluffs the tail.

Finally a B&BW fragrance that doesn't smell like cotton candy and lollipops!!! "Sensual Amber" is an incredible bargain, and I hope B&BW continues to sell it, and continues to offer more grown-up fragrances. I am obsessed with "good" perfume, but am on a budget. So it's usually a sample here, a very sparingly-used drop of parfum there, and WOW, what a luxury …Read more

Yes, I agree. I have always liked and trusted L'Oreal, and any of the "Milla" products really worked on me. But this one is a stinker, gals. Sorry! First of all, the combination of the four colors (2 shades of blue and 2 shades of beige) looked good in the pans, but turned to into total mud when I applied them *exactly* as instructed on the back of the compact. Secondly, as the …Read more

Just got some this morning, also in Classic Ivory. Love the simple little squirt bottle! Not sure how the bottle will work if I get close to the end, though. Pluses: This foundation blended very well, doesn't look like a mask, and it's still looking fresh 5 hours later even though it's raining and miserable outside today. Minuses: One weird criticism: it is unflatteringly …Read more

This is the one and only lip gloss I've used up and repurchased. Ever. Just like everyone says - it feels good, smells good and produces a pretty, subtle shine/reddish tone. Bought some for all my girlfriends last Christmas and they asked for more this Christmas! They reduce the price a lot after the holiday rush, so you might get lucky and get it really cheap.
