Great color. If you like a sunny glow shimmer this one is terrific! I use it over the bridge of my nose and my cheeks for a sun-kissed look. I also recommend "Pink Halo" for when you want to feel like a princess.
The only blush that I've actually finished the whole cake! It's wonderful. I love a little shimmer to brighten up my face and this one is gorgeous. It looks terrific when you use an all-over bronzer and then touch the apples of your cheeks lightly with this at the end--beautiful!
Great color and feel on lips but hated the fact that I had to keep sharpening it!
Love it! I use the sensory therapy AND the diffuser--both bring me back to a calm, happy state of mind. Simple product but works like a charm :)
Lipstick -Origins - Bite Your Lips®- Just Bitten Raspberry

I'm Blonde with Fair skin and Blue eyes and this color looks great on me. After reading some of the other reviews it seems like this product shows up differently on everyone! It definitely looks very dark in the tube (i.e. Clinique's "Black Honey"), however, the coverage is sheer plum and stains the lips a nice subtle color. I only apply one layer and it's great!
Moisturizers -Signature Club A - advanced formula 5 essentials creme

I really wanted to like this since I had heard so much about benefits that it gave the skin....HOWEVER, it made my skin breakout within a day of using the product. I have used Alpha Hydroxy and Glycolic Acid treatment sbefore and never had a problem but for some reason this particular combination of ingredients really bothered my skin. The smell is terrific and the product is packaged in a nifty jar with the eye cream on top. It was also reasonable in price. Too bad my face didn't like it :-(
Gels/Soaps -Signature Club A - Vinoplex Fresh Pear Shower Gel

Did not like this product--the smell was nothing like a fresh Pear. Too chemical-smelling. Never again.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals in 1.2, fairly light

The search is over! This is it--I LOVE this foundation and the color is great. I am very fair and it blends in beautifully. I purposely got the 1.2 because I rather have a little color than look washed out with Foundation 1. I have been using liquid and cream foundations since I was 13 and this is the best--I was a little skeptical since it is in powder form but as BE claims, it's NOT a powder--what a texture...it's so smooth. Highly recommend!
Fragrances -Origins - Gloomaway Uplifting sensory scent

As the daughter of a perfumer, I have smelled EVERYTHING and this is not bad. Sure, it does not smell "expensive" and there's a heck of a lot of alcohol in it thus making the staying power very poor. I find myself spraying it on throughout the day. However, the smell is not annoying and I think I might even finish this bottle! Fun, clean and fruity. If you like Origins "Spring Fever" you might like this one as well.
Snow? Last time I checked REAL snow didn't smell like anything! Get the Body Shop version of SNOW--if any fragrance has come close to capturing that cold, snowy, alpine feeling it's the Body Shop NOT Demeter. Staying power is horrible--Demeter "waters down" their fragrances with too much alcohol.
Blush -Bare Escentuals - Warmth All Over Face Color

I like this bronzer! It is very rich in pigment but if you use only a little bit, it gives your face a nice healthy look. I start on my cheek bones and over the bridge of my nose then finish with the corners of my forehead for a natural sun-kissed look. I am VERY light and it still works on my skin. A little goes a long way so it's definitely worth the money--you'll have it forever. Another winner from Bare Escentuals!
