Lip Treatments -Nuxe - Lip Balm in Fruits Rouges [DISCONTINUED]

I loved the way this balm stained my lips, but I didn't find it to be too long-lasting. I didn't mind the fragrance at all, but the texture is a tiny bit gritty. It's a nice product, but I don't find myself reaching for it too often.
I really wanted to like this blush after all the rave reviews. But, there's something about the shimmer or shade that just doesn't work well with my skin tone. It looked a little too goldy/peachy on me. On the other hand, I adore Sin!!

I really love this highlighter. I use it just under my brows, a thin line down the center of my nose, just above my lips and in the corner of my eyes. I'm not crazy about the packaging as a little too much product comes out with the brush, but I think this is the best highlighter that I've ever used.

This has become my favorite of all foundations. I have the shade 05 and I love, love it. It's perfect for my skin tone, doesn't get greasy, and creates a smooth, polished finish. I am selling or swapping the rest of my foundations-this is the one!! KA customer service has been outstanding also!

I am on my second bottle of the Body Accelerator. I love the way it smells and the way it feels. It has a fragrance that is part grapefruit/part menthol and it leaves a wonderful tingling sensation on the skin. I love to use it before I do yoga and after as it is so refreshing. I'm looking slimmer, but it could also be due to the yoga!
This blush just seems to last forever. During the Summer, I always get nice compliments on my coloring when I wear this blush. I have slightly yellow-toned skin and I just keep coming back to this blush. It goes on sheerly and always looks natural.
Eyes -Talika - Lash Conditionin Cleanser (for waterproof mascara)

I just didn't like to feel of this cleanser and it really didn't do a great job of removing eye make-up. Plus, it seemed to really irritate my eyes. I love the Talika Lipocils, but this was not a "fave" product.
At first, I really loved this color, but then there was something about it that didn't quite compliment my yellow-toned skin. Normally, I love all things NARS, but I ended up swapping this one away.
Skincare - Face -Z. Bigatti - Champagne Gel Cleanser

I liked this cleanser, but I didn't find it to be anything special considering the price. It had a very nice feel to it and the bottle lasted a long time. It did finf it to be a tiny bit drying.
I used to put the colorwash on first and then put "Rain" on top for shine and I wasn't very happy with the results. But then, Voila!, I reversed the order and I love this look. A very sexy, sheer-stained lip. I put this on before I exercise and it gives a nice natural color to your lips.
I am probably in the minority here, but even though I found the color to be quite pretty, the lipstick did not last very long on me. I found the packaging to be quite poor as after just a week in my make-up case, the tube looked banged up and old.
This is the best, most finely-milled mineral foundation (in my opinion). Sue was great at picking out a match over the phone for my skin color and she always included the most amazing extras in my package. I probably won't repurchase only because it will last me forever.
I purchased this conditioner based on the reviews in Productville and you girls were right. This gives my hair a nice polished look without weighing it down. It feels so light going onand I love the feel of it on my hair. I will definitely re-purchase.
This product added a nice sheen to my hair and it has a very nice fragrance, but I'm not sure about using it as a hand lotion as it's quite sticky. I do have to wash my hair a little more often when I use this, though.

OMG, I was talked in to this by a sales "rep" and was I ever sorry! This was the waxiest, gooiest, "do-nothing" product that I ever purchased. It made my face feel greasy and all-around yucky. Do not waste your money!
