This product is excellent the only problem is I dont use it consistently because I'm too lazy to do the scrub 2-3 times a week. It's excellent at removing the dry scaly patches and it really smooths out your complexion. I use it before I have a special event and when you put your makeup over the newly scrubbed skin, you get an airbrushed, beautiful look. Recommended if you want to give your skin a perk.
This is the prettiest highlighter powder I've ever tried. I tend to wear it in the wintertime when I'm paler and it gives a pink radiance. You can wear it over blush as sort of an overal perfector or alone. It also looks lovely mixed with some brozner. The one deterrent is the cost,I'd have to be in one of my impulsive moods to repurchase, but the good thing is that it last for a long time, I've had mine for about over a year. The only thing I knock is the hideous cardboard packaging. C'mon Benefit, For 26 dollars you can at least use something that wont get beaten to death in your makeup bag.
Lotions/ Creams -BeneFit Cosmetics - Bathina Body So Fine

I think for the quantity and quality of product it's worth it. This is a lovely balm that is pinkish and comes in large, retro looking container. The scent is a blend of flowers, and other deliciously sweet smelling things. I dont wear it everyday but on those occasions and nights out, I wear it over my Vera Wang perfume, or just alone. I love the slight shimmer it gives to your skin, giving a luminescence. If you want to feel pretty and feminine and are tired of overpowering perfume this is the way to go. I like it a lot, I purchased Benefit's Fragrance which is a spin off of Bathina but I don't even like it as much.

very very nice. it leaves your skin moisturized, soft and supple. i tend to use it at night in the shower, and i dont even bother with moisturizer afterwards. the vitamin formula really does improve the condition and look of your skin. the smell is a bit perfumey though.
This lipglass was a little frosty looking for my taste, like that cheap drugstore pink look. I do think it gives a sort of sex kitten look, if you paired the pink frost gloss with dark eyes. It wasn't exactly frosty but it didn't really go well with my complexion.

This eyeshadow lasts forever. This is probably my absolutely favorite eyeshadow I don't wear it everyday but whenever I have a special occasion or want to look really dazzling this is the eyeshadow I go to. It's a plummish color, almost violet, and has the slightest shimmer, it's great when you're looking for a smoldering sexy eye and dont want to resort to using grey or black. I usually pair it with LM's Guava eyeshadow (as the base color). I have a brown eyes and the purple really makes them stand out
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Bronzer in Moonlight

I have had a love hate relationship with Physicians Formula sometimes they're really a hit but most of the time they are a bit overpriced for the product you get. And a lot of their products that are powder tend to break or crack before I finish them, resulting in throwing a lot away. This Bronzer is actually quite nice though it's for fairer skin tones I believe, and if you wear alone it's a very slight shimmer, I love wearing it in the evening over my normal blush, it adds that "sexy" glow. I use it as more of a highlighter, like Benefits Dandelion. I recommend it though, and the moon is very adorable.
