Surprisingly this works for my PPP complexion. I can completely understand when reviewers say it looks orange on their lips--this happens to me all the time BUT Brown is different on me, for some weird reason--it actually looks like a deep cherry. Yes, it's drying but I'll deal with that if I can keep the color on my lips for a long time. It's definitely a gamble with BB lipsticks but I have zero pigmentation in my lips and I'm fair but it still works for me so who knows?
If you like BBW Warm Vanilla than you'll love the drydown of this fragrance. It starts out with a note of coconut but then the vanilla takes over. Very nice but can get a little annoying after a while. A bit cloying.
Great fragrance that goes on lovely and stays true all day. This is one for all ages. I can see a girl in college, an elegant stay-at-home Mom, a businesswoman, or a beautiful older gal wearing this. It has no boundaries and is timeless--doesn't smell like the 1980's, etc. Definitely worth checking out if you like elegant, floral, feminine fragrances. I also have SJP Lovely and that has a sour note to it that this one does not.
I love Dior fragrances and this is no exception. I don't get the "masculine" or "Vabor Rub" comments. When I first sprayed this I said, "whoa" out loud because it's so different and so intoxicating. VERY sexy--this fragrance is definitely for a confident woman that doesn't want to smell like everyone else.
Bugspray? Hairspray? Come on--this is a BEAUTIFUL, clean, crisp scent that is unique and timeless. Get a tan, put on a white polo, spray this terrific fragrance on and you'll feel completely "put together." You can't go wrong with this one. A very classy scent.
I must be blind because there's no "sparkle" or "glitter" in this. It's a great lightweight moisturizing foundation that smooths on like a dream and gives a fresh look to the skin. I have acne-prone, dry skin and this really works for me. My face feels and looks so dewy with this. Very natural but gives nice coverage. Much better than Clinique's Moisture Tint.
My husband said that my face looked so good right after my first application of this product. That's good enough for me! Seriously, it is a very moisturizing, easy-to-apply TM. I like the sanitary tube it comes in with a narrow top so you don't squirt out too much. Very buildable and lasts all day. Gives a semi-matte finish. Like it better than BB, which doesn't give me the coverage).

I'm on my third tube of this product. I just LOVE this TM. Even if it didn't have any benefits for the skin I would still buy it because my skin just drinks it in and I look so naural and glowing. Even in daylight it is virtulayy undetectable, which is very important to me. There's nothing worse than a "powdery" made up face. This is great but you need to use concealer with it for hiding blemishes. You can't go wrong with this one. I am EXTREMELY acne-prone but this product does not bother my skin at all. HG TM for me!
I had high hopes but this eyeliner proved to be a big disappointment. It is too thick and makes me look ridiculous. I can't believe it's 2007 and big cosmetic companies are still coming out with liners like this! So unoriginal and I would not waste my $$.
"Have you had work done?" was the reaction I got when I wore this. I don't know if that's compliment but it certainly makes me look less tired. I will repurchase if I ever run out but the stick seems to last forever.

Wow! I got this eyeshadow as part of a Too Faced palette and what a surprise!!! I just used my SB jet set black eyeliner and then put this on my lids for a wash--POP! My blue eyes look incredible. I have been looking for years for an eyeshadow that would show off my eyes but not make the rest of me look sick. I found my HG! This color is subtle and it perks up my whole face. Yeah!
Powder -Serious Skin Care - Bella Rose Promineral Foundation

Yippee! This mineral makeup is FANTASTIC. I have tried them all (BE, Sheer Cover, Almay, Everyday Minerals), and this one is the best. Forget the reviews that mention the smell and just see what this does for your face. The smell is minimal and if you put the minerals in a different jar the smell goes away for some reason. This makeup lasts ALL DAY and I look just as fresh at the end of the day as I do when I first put it on in the morning. I was very skeptical since most of the other mineral makeup I tried made me break out--NOT Prominerals. I give this one 5 stars and highly recommend to anyone on the fence. An added bonus is that it's alot cheaper than BE when you buy one of the kits.
Too "European" for me. Smells a lot like something L'Occitane would come out with. Very oily fragrance that goes on like an elixir. Very masculine scent at first spritz. The drydown is all right but it's just too strong for me. Foody? No. Flowery? No. Musky/Patchouli? YES. I just don't feel warm and cozy with this Vanilla--it actually makes me feel uncomfortable. No recommendation here :-(
Powder -Sheer Cover - Sheer Cover - Mineral Foundation

Horrible! I was so excited to try this product since I was frsutrated with BE. Well, at least BE didn't make my face itch/burn and make me break out almost immediately! I can't believe that very few reviewers here broke out with this. My face looks horrible now after FINALLY getting blemsih-free :-( I don't recommend this garbage to anyone--I should have known better than to buy a product from a TV personality.
Concealers -Lancome - Maquicomplet (Complete Coverage Concealer)

This is a good concealer--covers everything but too yellow for my taste. It also doesn't last too long. I need to reapply several times throughout the day :-(
