This is a great bronzer ! Color is so natural looking tan on my NC40/42 skintone. At first when I swatched on the back of my hand I thought, argh nah, way too orange but when I applied it on my cheeks it became a different story. it just gives me the most flattering sunkissed cheek color. Very long lasting. I don't think i will repurchase because this stick it big enough to last me a very long time.

This cream is for the face and hands. This is such a great product. It moisturizes the skin very well, felt soft, like butter to the skin yet not greasy at all. penetrates quickly, leaving skin incredibly soft and well hydrated. I also notice that it gives my skin a healthy glow and refines my pores. my face appears poreless. So nice! I would buy this again after I finish my gwp tube

I was able to get my hands on this through the very kind help of my great friend from Thailand. She is also the one who introduced me to this great product. I like everything about this, very transparent on the skin absolutely no white cast effect, no greasy feel. it just makes my skin very smooth and fresh looking because of the semi matte finish. I put this over my Lancôme Hydra Zen Moisturizer and my skin has never been sooo smooth and flakes free afterwards, it is like magic. My make up foundation glides on with ease with this (and the lancome moisturizer), the scent is also very nice and mild. and, the most important is that it has a high sun protection, SPF 50+ PA+++I think this is the best sunblock out there
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

What a great product ! I got a 30ml travel size of this in a gift set. This makes removing eye make up a breeze, I don't have to rub my skin, does not sting the eye and not greasy at all. It melts all eye make up even waterproof eyeliner. This is a must have for every make up bag
I am sooo fond of this palette ! Finally I can create a smokey eye look without looking like I have blackeyed. I am really impress on how this blends well with my skintone (NC40), I can used one color alone and it still delivers a very impressive smokey eye look. when mixed and blend with the other colors it adds more dimension, more depth and really emphasized beautifully my brown eyes. Just perfect !
This looks good on the tube but when I applied it on my lips the color is not the same. color looks like a concealer and it kind of washed me out and it hardly showed up on my NC40 skintone, so I had to lined my lips with a taupe lipliner. once lips are lined with a taupe lip liner the color pops up a bit, and become a light peachy orange on my lips. I don't really like orange lippies so I am not really a fan of this one
I received this as extra in a swap. I must say I realy like this eyeliner. it is a true black color, gorgeous on my brown eyes. applies easily and pen is not difficult to sharpen. Reason I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 is because I find it not long lasting and it smudges after a few minutes. I would buy this in the future just for the reason alone that it is a really deep black eyeliner
Fragrances -Bodycology - Vanilla Cupcake Body Mist

I received this as a gift from my very kind, great friend from the U.S. The initial spray smells a little like playdough but it soon dissapeared leaving a yummy scent ! So gourmand but not cloying. Smells of vanilla cupcake with buttercream and lots of sugar. I just sprayed this when I need a sweet fix. I like spraying it on my hair, I also use this as body mist but not much because I find it a bit sticky. The bottle is huge and will last a very long time to finish. it is a great buy.
Foundations -Philosophy - Divine Illumination Cream to Satin
MoiBelle 7/7/2011 5:07:00 AM
My great friend from the U.S. cp'd me this. I am really so glad am able to get my hands on this. This is a super nice product ! This glides on satiny smooth to the skin and easy to blend, very llightweight and I don't feel it on my skin. It gave the most airbrushed finish and really makes pores less visible. I think there is nothing else like this (aside from La Mer Skincolor Foundations). I got the color medium to tan which is tad light on my NC40, but it blends to my skin after a few minutes yet it is still a bit light for my skintone, it is still wearable, though. I would like to try the color Tan next time. The packaging is adorable. Illegant. Black compact with a mirror and a brush which is very useful. the brush really picks up the product and apply the foundation well and evenly. twist lock compact which is airtight to keep the product fresh. Price is $39 at QVC. This might be my next HG foundation
Foundations -Philosophy - the supernatural airbrush canvas

I like that this powder delivers a good coverage and has spf 25. At first I also find the packaging very handy and easy to use but sometimes it is hard to see how much powder you get when using the sponge applicator, so what I do is I just used a brush to apply the product. I got this in bronze which is a tad dark for my NC40/42 skintone, but I still try to make it work by just applying a very light layer. Finish is not matte but a bit dewy which I like. I just think it is quite over priced as the container arrived not even half full even it was brand new, it was filled just like about 1/4 only. I thought perhaps this belongs to a batch that were filled unfinished or so... I still would like to try another color lighter than bronze, but hope I will get one that is full
Very nice quality for such an affordable price ! I am surprise of how good this stipple brush is. I prefer this over MAC 187 stippling brush. This delivers a very natural lightweight, airbrush finish. so easy to use, quite soft bristtles but picks up product very well. I enjoy putting on foundation and stick cream bronzer using this brush. the result of my foundation is like airbrushed. I would definitely buy this again(with the kind help of my US great friend who cp'd this for me)

I think this is the newest scent from Avon. I must say that this smells really good. Simple notes but well rounded. It smelled vanilla bean with a dollop butter cream sugar to me. Cute 15ml spray. reasonable price 15euro. I am going to buy this again when I finish my spray.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Oilatum Natural Face Repair Cream
MoiBelle 6/10/2011 9:47:00 AM
A great UK swapper cp'd this for me. I'm so glad I was able to get my hands on this. This cream is amazing. It moisturizes my skin really well, making it so soft and smooth with very nice glow. dry spots banished like magic with this cream on. and even sometimes I don't use it my face remains moisturized and soft. It is true that this helps repair skin's natural barier. I like it so much. as per application, this does not glide so easy so it takes quite a lot of rubbing and massaging gently to absorb. I would not wear it under make up as it so rich the make up will glide everywhere and will melt. well perhaps, a very tiny bit of the cream can be applied under make up during winter time. but not during summer.
I received this in swap. This is like a toner and a moisturizer in between. This instantly refreshed the skin, leaving it feeling very clean, revived and somewhat matte looking but at the same time quite moisturized. However, those positive benefits only last for a few minutes, say about 30 minutes. then my skin is back to not so top, not so vibrant looking again. However, I noticed that I have no dry flakes/spots after putting this and my skin stays a bit moisturized for the whole day with this on. so that is one good thing. I have been using this for more than a week already, so far I have not seen any major changes in my skin yet (aside from it being a bit more moisturized). I noticed no brightening yet. Smelled minty herbal to me, the scent reminds me a bit of Lush mask of magnaminty which I like. I don't think I will buy this after I finish my bottle as I'm not really so impressed by its performance.
