Expensive blush, but worth it, generally. Charm School is a balanced medium pink with some brown/mauve color--actually looks natural on my somewhat olive complexion without looking too dark or not showing. Beautiful silver metal case--you can throw it in your bag without worrying it'll fall apart.

Ditto--got this on sale, when they sometimes bring back discontinued products. Very rich consistency.I rarely buy lotions, bought this cause of the smell alone--light, unusual combo fragrance.

I didn't like this scent as much as I thought I would--smells a bit diluted, not like true watermelon and a bit artificial.

Nice lipstick--gives effect of a gloss, slight shimmer with application.Feels slippery and good on lips, but wears off too fast.Color is a neutral mauvey-brown, which looks okay on me, but will try to get a punchier, different color next time, so I won't repurchase this one. Tube is too big, though pretty.
A slightly shimmery pale pink- beige with a mauvey tinge, both natural-looking but subtly evident-- nice for summer toes.
A lovely white floral fragrance, with green notes--subtle but distinctive, romantic yet not overpowering or too sweet. The goddess of peace in love. Available in a convenient roll-on bottle with attached cap.

A wonderful refreshing unique smell and pretty pale green color. Fruity but not too sweet, cause of the mint.
A pleasant marine scent, Cool Waterish, but less strong and distinctive.
A tropical scent with a strong note of coconut, which I found overpowering--not for me.

This is a unique product.It is very convenient--it's in a lipstick-shaped tube, clear and easy to apply around the eyes. The best part though is that it when I apply it first, it makes my undereye concealer go on more smoothly. Update: Though I love this, I am noticing my eyes tear a lot and burn when it's on--so I might be having a bad reaction to the sunscreen in it. Beware!
A nice medium tannish pink for summer, slight shimmer with subtle gold overtones. Doesn't look brown or orange at all to me! Pretty silver case.
I have very dry lips so this does not work for me as a lip balm--it's just not moisturizing enough. That said, it's comfortable on the lips as a lipstick and the color is great- a natural brown that blends with your lipcolor and is perfect for when you don't want to look like you're wearing lipstick.
A clear straightforward green scent, not as interesting as Eirene, but worth getting nonetheless.
This clear light gel feels cool on the skin, is nongreasy and easy to apply--a great find for oily or combination skin as a summer moisturizer. The tube it comes in makes it easy to travel with too.
I have a small cologne spray of this -- a nice light fresh green scent, smells like spring on the verge of summer--a real pick-me- up for every day. Most of this company's perfumes are good to excellent: because they're French, and the French know how to make perfume!
