The composition includes a pituitous silicone fluid that includes a hydrosilylation reaction product and a carrier fluid. The hydrosilylation reaction product generally includes alkenyl or Si—H functionality. The hydrosilylation reaction product is the reaction product of a first linear organopolysiloxane including (R1R2R3SiO—1/2) and (R4R5Si)2/2) units, and a second linear organopolysiloxane including (R6R7R8SiO—1/2) and (R9R10SiO2/2) units. Each of R1-R10 is independently a hydrocarbon group so long as at least one of R1-R5 is an alkenyl group and at least one of R6-R10 is a hydrogen atom. The first linear organopolysiloxane has a DP of from 100 to 15,000. The second linear organopolysiloxane has a DP of from 4 to 1,000. The composition also includes a silicone elastomer different from the hydrosilylation reaction product. Personal care compositions can include the composition.
