I have been using STs since they were first introduced in the early '90s, and this is my hands-down absolute favorite. It doesn't have that reddish cast that the PC Almost The Real Thing did. I use the foam and apply while wearing latex gloves, it dries fast. My only complaint is that the color doesn't last very long on me, I must apply every 2 days at least to have even, nice …Read more

I also got the GWP mini of this lipstick and I have worn it nearly every day since! It is sort of a MAC Sequin-lite on my lips, not quite as dark. It has a lovely lightweight feel, isn't drying and does a great job of really adhering to my lipline. I am sure I will end up purchasing the full size tube when I finish this mini.

Yes, this is extremely similar on my skin as my beloved SL Rahat Loukoum. I do detect just a bit more cherry as it dries down, which is fine with me. A real winner and I will most likely purchase a bottle when I run out of my RL decants. Oh, and I do find it lasting longer than the RL.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this lippy. It is the closest I have come to finding a lookalike for an old HG--Cliniqe Applesauce---that was discon't in the mid-90's. On my MMM complexion with dark hair and eyes, this looks like a warm peachy/coral that doesn't make me look washed out. I hate spending $22.50 on a lipstick, but for a color this unique, it is worth it.

Can't add much to what has been already written--these are some of my HG products--the BHA/AHA/hyaluronic acid--are the 3 products I can't live without from this line. Have repurchased several times already. I use them in conjunction with Skin Biology's Super CP Serum and Super Cop and my skin looks and feels great.

I would have never tried this color were it not for all of the positive reviews here(many under Blush and Highlighter). I have never found a bronzer that looked good on me until this product. It does look very brownish in the tube, but once applied to my MMM/neutral toned skin, it gives a sunkissed glow and doesn't look nearly so brown. I usually steer clear on anything even remotely …Read more

If you have moderate thickness/length lashes like me, then don't waste your time/money on this below average mascara. I can think of at least 5 drugstore ones better than this. It didn't hold a curl at all and provided minimal lengthening and no thickening. I tossed my sample after giving it a 3 day trial.

I rec'd a sample of this in a Sephora order. I have tried it very lightly on one wrist once, and I had a terrible headache the rest of the day. As others have said, it is a very cloying, generic scent, and does remind me of several dept. store perfumes. Those who get migraines easily from perfumes might want to proceed with caution when sampling this one.

This pomade has replaced my long time holy grail pomade, Ouidad Clear Control Pomade. It works just as well and at $5 compared to $25, it is a great replacement. Smells great too. Oh, don't let the "Wax" in the name mislead you, this is not a wax at all, just a nice lightweight pomade with a castor oil base if I recall correctly.

I am so glad I swapped for this and didn't spend the ridiculous $25 on it. I had been curious about it for some time, since it is always hyped in the Bliss catalog. Well, it is less than average when compared to Neurtrogena's Sesame Oil, Avon's Skin So Soft, and practically every other high/low end body oil I have tried. It has a strong lemon (Pledge) scent and isn't all that …Read more
