I smelled this in a magazine, this smells so effing good. I'm not into green scents cause they can smell dirty on me, but this is the perfect balance of green and florals
I don't know about some of you, but I love the smell of this mascara--like a rose. I like perfumed makeup, very old school. Anyway, I have short, lashes and this dramatically lengthens and volumizes(without looking clumpy). I need about two to three coats to get it perfect. Much better than lash blast
Wonderful color. Pinkish brown neutral. Looks great on any skin tone. My skin is caramel and it works.

A beautiful floral with slight notes of fruit. Very deep. I got the pure parfum, I have to use up to four dabs and that's enough. The drydown is soft and beautiful.

I'm caramel skinned, so this looks brownish RED to me. Nice warm flattering color. The texture is creamy and smooth.

I hate that they wrapped this tube so that you can test it on your hands. Of couree, it looks darker in the tube. It appears warm pink on my caramel skin. Nice color on me, but not the color I was looking for. I was expecting more of a darker shade pink-brown shade. I love the texture.

Just like cheeky, I have small eyes and dramatic voluminizing mascara tends to make them smaller, lol. This widens my eye. This and Rimmel's eye magnifier will make your eyes larger and give long lashes.
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Beyond Natural Cream to Powder Eye Shadow

Like the previous reviewer said, the whole point is of it to be natural looking. I have this in Spice, and I am a caramel complected black woman. It gives a nice warm wash to my eyes. The only thing about cream is that it doesn't last as long as powder. The packaging is so beautiful.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Midnight Swirl LE in Taupe-less

You can't wear this with pale skin. This looks perfect on warmer, caramel complexions. It's a nice milk chocolately light brown color.
Thankfully, I bought this on clearance for about $3 and change. The tip is ridiculous, it is too thick.
I guess the negative reviews come from those wearing the darker colors. I have this in lingering violet, a sheer lilac like color. You need to continue to apply the lip gloss or else it will feel dry. I ate something greasy and it still stayed on when I wiped my lip with a napkin, something other stay on lipsticks have not done.

I love this smell. It's a nice clean heavenly smell. This moisturizes very well. I love the vintage packaging and that's one of the reasons I bought this. I just wish they would have a BODY SPRAY with that heavenly smell. Update 8/12/09: I have since found the body spray called "Flirtigo".. Very nice and lasts a while. Though it's a lotion type body spray and not your traditional mist.

This is one of the limited edition trios. the highlight is a soft yellow, the medium shade is a nice earthen pinkish brown, and the crease color is a rich chocolate brown with shimmer. Nice neutral colors, long wear. Wet n Wild has good quality eye shadow for dirt cheap prices. I love it.

The smells just like Avon's Crystal Aura. Luminous it is.
Only Walgreens and one other CVS I know carries this product. I have the cover creme foundation/concealer stick in Light. The staying power and coverage is fantastic. I didn't expect this much from Posner. The price was $9.99 for the stick and $8.99 for the pot. If they should ever discontinue this from the stores (which they usually do with cosmetics geared to women of color), I will buy it online. I love it. Oil free. I find it difficult obtaining a concealer that matches my skin tones perfectly, much less a stick concealer. I have hereditary dark under eye circles which require heavy concealer. The drugstore concealers are either liquid form (which doesn't give much coverage) or are too pink. Black Opal has a little concealer stick, but it has oil, thus it fades fast. Great product, more stores should carry this.
