I guess it was time for me to write a "kinda" bad review, sorry it had to be this. This absolutely sucks as a bronzer to me, wayyy too much glitter. You look like a disco ball in the sunlight so PLEASE take caution...you will get looks and not for good reasons. Although its kinda pretty as eyeshadows. Perfect for a toned way down makeup look or I'm even sure you could build it up into something more dramatic. So eyeshadow=yay, bronzer=nay. Don't waste your money on this, PF costs more than regular drugstore brands...you'll be mad.
Great highlighting powder and I'm not talking about shimmer and glitter. This gives off a nice satin finish absolutely perfect for that inner glow look. I gave it a 4 only because in my opinion when applied all over on medium to dark skin tones it can give off almost an ashy appearance so that's why I only apply it to specific spot like on the higher parts of my cheeks, t-zone, and high part of brows, sparingly of course. The result...lots of looks from people admiring your gorgeous glowing skin.
Lipstick -Cover Girl - Lip Perfection in Temptress

Perfect Dupe for Mac Viva Glam Nicki Minaj. Swatched together this is a teeny bit darker but apply it on top of a lighter shaded nude lipliner or mixed with a little bit of light concealer...perfect dupe. Just wanted to pass that on :) beautiful bright watermelon pink without the blue undertones as mentioned below. Smooth application with a creamy/semi gloss finish. Apply it (as well as any lipstick) on top of different colored lip liners to change the color into a whole new color. TIP ALERT: apply almost any bright, out there colors to light nude lip liners softens it into a more wearable color. Really like this especially with spring coming.
WOWZA!! Hellooo Fire Engine Red!! Think Christina Aguilera. This is a "Notice Me Red" very beautiful if worn the right way. Definitely need a lip liner with this. I notice it smears really easily so pay special attention to application. This has a built in lip stain I feel (dk if they claim this but if they do, its evident). Slides on effortlessly with a creamy/semi gloss finish. For added staying power I like to use Revlon JustBitten LipStain in Gothic underneath for GUARANTEED no touch up, staying power. I think it'll be flattering on the lightest to the darkest of us, just PLEASE....minimal eye makeup ladies, think classic pin-up :)
Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - PhotoReady Color Correcting Primer (color 002)

I really like this Primer. The consistency is a mix between liquid and gel and as I apply it, it feels a little greasy but as it absorbs into my skin it "dries up" and becomes very smooth almost mattifying. After I apply it I don't notice any initial color correcting but as I waited a few mins for my skin to really absorb it before applying foundation, I see the redness disappear and any blotchiness is evened out. I absolutely love to wear it alone on no makeup days :) Would recommend this everyone.
I have this foundation in #315 Soft Honey, the color matches my skin tone very well....that's the only pro I can really think of at the moment. I wish they would make this in different formulas (if they don't already) meaning for different types of skin tones because after 3 hrs my face is so oily and slick its disgusting. I set it with the matching pressed powder and a translucent powder to no avail. The smell kinda turns me off as well. I will continue to use it because it does match my skin tone but will not be buying it again.
