This is a Glaze formula so it IS sheer. But I prefer sheer and think it is a lovely shade of pink with a purpley iridescence to it. I like it so much I just purchased a backup for me and a friend who also loves it. I say try it on and see what you think. I have been applying this at work just for a quick wash of color and shimmer without being messy or sticky or having chunky glitter.
Found this while cleaning out one of my rarely used makeup bags. I am glad I rediscovered this! I don't usually buy or wear lipliner. I am more of a throw on lip balm and/or lip gloss kinda girl. But this Lipglass formula is creamy, smoothy, and shiny, it goes on soo easily! The color is a gorgeous rose with a bit of subtle gold sheen. If this weren't LE I would definitely buy another one.
The comparison to Vanilla Pigment is very true, and thats probably why I love this one so much! When I went to look at this I brought my Lemon Chiffon Shadestick to compare. Cuddle has more of a gold glow, and more intense color pay off than Lemon Chiffon so I thought it was worth having both. This is GREAT for a quick base under other shadows, or as a highlight in the inner corners, etc. Makes me wish I bought a backup since its LE!
LOVE! I actually bought 2 of these one for home and one for work :) It is a lovely peachy/pink with a hint of gold. It applies very smoothly, wears all day, and has no chunky glitter. As with all Shadesticks make sure you close the cap tightly so it doesn't dry out. I am sure I would repurchase if it wasn't LE!

I have finally found my HG! This is the first time I have EVER repurchased a foundation. I am fairly pale MAC NC20 and my perfect shade match is Y/O Champagne 04. It gives medium to full coverage, evens out the redness in my skin and covering minor blemishes. I still use an under eye concealer because I have terrible dark circles. But on days when I am in a hurry I can just use this, mascara, and lip balm. I have tried almost everything under the sun. This is exactly what I wanted. Nice coverage, not messy, easy to travel and take with me, doesn't irritated my easily irritated skin, never looks fake, greasy, or chalky. MAC irritated my skin, BE did not give enough coverage, Clinique is chalky on me, etc. Yah for finding my HG! The ONLY thing I would change is the price. I did just get my 2nd one on sale 30% off right after Christmas but I don't think PX goes on sale very often.

I received a 3.4oz tube of this in my stocking for Christmas. I already had the body spray so I knew I would like the clean scent. The Hand Cream is VERY moisturizing!!!! It would be perfect for at night. At work it is a tiny bit too greasy so I apply it to my hands and let it soak in for a minute before using my keyboard, phone, etc. I think they *might* have discontinued these, OR maybe they are just changing the packaging but last time I was there I noticed they were marked down half off. The packaging is nice. It is a stand up tube with a twist cap so you can squeeze out as much or as little as you like.
LOVE this. I am not usually an eyeliner girl, just too much work and I am not good at making staright lines haha. But this is such a pretty color and goes on so easy, I find myself wearing it almost every day lately! It is a lovely grey-ish black with gold/green shimmer. Regular black and brown just look too harsh on my pale skin, this is perfect.

For those of you that do not like the tin this now comes in a handy little .5oz tube with a slant tip. LOVE! Much easier to transport and more sanitary than sticking your fingers in the tin. The product is the same and I have been using it for years. I use it for dry lips, cuticles, minor burns, etc.
Yay!! Grass is back!!! I wore this years and years ago and it was discontinued. Imagine my happiness when I wandered into Gap and found beautiful new bottles of this available for only $24 in a nice glass bottle. HAPPINESS! I sprayed myself several times. Here is the funny part, I am giving it to my hubby to give me for Christmas. I didn't want to wait until then so i bought a little $5 bottle of the Grass body spray to get me through until then hehe. I can't stop smelling myself.
Be aware this product has shimmer/glitter in it. I would not have purchased if I knew this. Nowhere in the description does it say this. I like the green tea scent. I am sure it is moisturizing but I did not keep it on long enough to tell. My legs broke out in an itchy rash so I washed it off. I do have very sensitive skin though. My step daughter loves it, just not for me. I am switching to their new Advanced Healing which has no fragrance, mica, etc.

Ick. Glad this was just a sample and I didn't purchase it. First the scent is overwhelming. (I am scensitive to scent anyway but this one is bad). I honestly wish I could go wash it off my face right now but I am at work. It smells like old lady perfume to me. It went on nice and smooth but something in it has irritated my face and my cheeks are now bright red. It also appears to have some sort of shine or shimmer in it, bad for sensitive skin.

I bought this entire line but my favorite is the Eau de Toilette. Even the EDT is nice and light and fresh. Most perfumes bother me but this is just right! I even bought the candle for my bathroom. This is how BBW describes it - Inspired by pure white cotton flowing in fresh ocean air, master perfumers have infused cotton blossom with notes of drenched air, fresh linen and soft powder to create this remarkably clean fine fragrance. * Fragrance Top Notes: Fresh Bright Floral Accord, Clean Cotton Accord, Drenched Air Accord, Fresh Linen Effect, Wet Green Pear, Blood Orange, Tangerine * Fragrance Mid Notes: White Muguet, Crisp Orange Flower, Watery Cyclamen, White Freesia, Cotton Blossom Headspace, Dewy Jasmine * Fragrance Base Notes: Clean Powder, White Musk, Sandalwood, Vanilla Absolute

LOVE!!! This has a wonderful soft, true almond scent, not your typical fake or overly sweet almond scent. It is moisturizing, but not greasy. 3 hours later I can still faintly smell this. I am sensitive to a lot of scents but this one is perfect for me. Must stock up on this again as I am running out!!! :)
OUCH!!! Avoid this if you have sensitive skin, rosacea, etc like I do. It DID clear up some clogged pores on my nose but it burns and stings like nothing I have ever felt!!! I rinsed it off immediately, did not let it sit for the recommended 20-30 seconds. Luckily I had a sample from Sephora I did not buy the full size product. I will probably use up the rest on my hands.
WOW! While waiting for my daughter to get her hair cut at an Aveda salon recently, they asked if I wanted a deep conditioning treatment on my hair. Who can say no to that?!? They used Aveda's Detoxifier Shampoo to remove product build up and hard water deposits, then used Redken Real Control Mask to condition, and let it sit in my hair for about 10 minutes. I could not believe how soft, shiny, healthy looking my hair looked after that, and it had no tangles which is rare for my hair. Needless to say I took both the shampoo and mask home with me and use them once a week now. GREAT stuff! The packaging is nice and simple, and seems to have the classic herbal Aveda smell with a bit of a kick to it, smells very clean and fresh to me.
