Blush -Bare Escentuals - Warmth All Over Face Color

One of the best bronzers out there. This is a great bronzer because it looks like skin. It is a bit dark no matter what color shade your skin is, so a little goes a looong way! It does last pretty long, and just gives a nice natural looking glow. :) I also use this as an eye shadow a lot during summer, makes my brown eyes have that perfect bronzer look :)
BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium
beachsexybronze 1/5/2013 12:36:00 PM
For my face- I DID like how it "looked" but the lasting power wasn't so great. The reason why I gave it 4 stars tho, was because this makes a GREAT body makeup light sheer foundation (like for your legs for example), although you may want to steer away from the color "white". But I mix a little bit of this with my bronzer lotion and gives a beautiful shimmer coverage for my legs. ;) So if this doesn't work so good for your face, then maybe try it for your body or legs. :)
This one is good...maybe not the best, but I actually do see my shadow lasting much longer and you can't beat the price for this stuff! I also like to use their Milk jumbo pencil before my shadow..but a little trick I DO use for this more than my primer for eyes..I actually use a tiny bit of this all over my face, and sometimes just only for UNDER my eyes so my concealor lasts even longer. ;)
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)

If I could leave 10 or 20 stars, I certainly would. EVERYONE should know and research about the health benefits of Organic Virgin Unrefined Coconut oil. And always make sure it says "un"refined, not refined. Because the refind is not the same as the unrefined. If you look up "coconut oil benefits" you will find some utterly amazing and eye opening facts about this wonderful miracle. -it helps moisturize skin -prevents/fades wrinkles -cures/helps rashes, exzema, sun burns, scrapes, BURNS, STRETCHMARKS, etc..you name it!even bee stings I think! -it Prevents/cures STOMACH flu, Cold/flus-its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial!!! Eat about 2-5 tablespoons a day and you will find you hardly will get sick most of the time! -lowers cholesterol, and has many other heart benefits and blood pressure benefits -promotes better digestion, and circulation (great for diabetics) -some say it clears acne (however, quitting eating DAIRY products and animal meat also clears acne -btw) -makes hair beautiful and shiney!! A great heat protector -cures dandruff -it is the ONLY oil you can eat that doesn't store as FAT (notice people in the tropics eat massive amounts of this and doesn't get overweight). -helps balance out thyroid problems-which helps with weight loss! -oh and cooking/frying with it instead of other oils (like olive, vegtable, etc...) is also much better because its the only oil on this planet that does turn into bad smoke at really high heat and the oil doesn't dry up as fast during frying and its much much more healthier to eat!! -sooooooooo many other things! Please research it, watch videos about it, and educate yourself and how this oil (even tho it is a saturated fat, it is a GOOD fat) and it is a miracle! YES, it can be expensive, but a little goes a long way. Spread it on whole grain bread after toasting it with almond butter and a little bit of honey and yum!!!! Even some athletes eat a bit of this before working out or training! This is GOD SEND! Note-you will tell the difference if it is true organic and UNrefind, because it will have that true coconut smell and flavor, and also makes food taste even better when cooking with it!
Ok, so I LOVE the original "Bisque" since for some reason that one just blends a lot better and very nicely. This one "summer bisque" has a nice color, but as a concealor (even with primer), for some reason just brings out any lines around my eyes (even tho I really dont have any!) BUT....this is GREAT as an all over coverage/foundation! For some reason this color is just perfect for me during winter and fall for my FACE..but as for my eyes and under eyes, it just kind of doesn't blend as well as the original one. But if you find that it isnt as good for your eyes, use this as a foundation powder for all over blending-it works great :)
Bronzers -Victoria's Secret - Sun Dust Bronze Shimmer Body Powder
beachsexybronze 1/5/2013 12:08:00 PM
Love it! I always open it and sprinkle some in my favorite body butter scented lotions and mix it with a spoon and walla! A nice bronzy-shimmer lotion! :)
I ordered the vs Pro Airbrush Bronzer Primer, and they got my order wrong and sent me the VS Pro Air brush "ILLUMINATING" one , and I actually liked it, so I decided to not complain and kept it (but will need to re order the bronzer one again). However, being that I did keep this one, I actually DO love it! The color is a like a VERY light pinkish/white tone with very very tiny glitter/shimmer/highlight infusing color specs that very upclose they are like teeny tiny pink shimmer specs. I also dont mind-but did notice it has a smell-like a light "rose" type of scent (if you like rose petals, you will like the light scent)-although I dont mind the scent, I dont prefer any scented primers. When you first put it on it feels a little slick and slightly oily (even tho it says oil free).BUT..after waiting about 5 min before putting on my makeup, it really does smooth out my skin and makes it just beautiful with a tiny hint of sheen and you can see the pretty highlighted areas of my cheek bones. The highlight is very subtle, so dont worry about "glitter" or it being too "high beam" showing. But overall this is a nice buy. :) Can't wait to try the bronzer one!
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - VS Fantasies Secret Craving
beachsexybronze 1/5/2013 11:58:00 AM
Loooooooooove this scent!! This one (next to Coconut passion) is my FAVORITE out of all of these fantasy scents/lotions/mists!! I have this in the EDT perfume-and smells soooo lovely! Its a pretty blend of black currant and vanilla absolute (so it says on the packaging). Such a perfect combination!! Its strong at first, but the dry down becomes more softer and more lighter (but still dont over do it, less is more). If you love scents like anything sweet, gourmand, vanilla, etc...then this is HEAVEN to you! The lasting power is pretty darn good as well! :) I will be buying the lotion and body mist, cause I just cant get enough of this perfume right now :)
I believe this scent may be discontinued, but I ordered it online right before the holidays and luckily I did -because you cannot find it on their website anymore. :( This has a matching lotion, and a matching body butter lotion that is luminous (all discontinued however). When first sprayed, it has sort of a plumish/dark yummy scent and a vanilla type scent. I also have their play all day one which is a blend of CA poppy and something else...both smell REAL good! Anyhow, this body mist smells SO GOOD!! The notes I believe is freesia and musk..something like that. The staying power is a little better than most. I wish they wouldnt discontinue this, as I am stocking up on ebay where ever I can find it (and the lotion)!
I just bought this not too long ago. I think this palette is very nice! First of all, the packaging is very cute (although I dont mind packaging as long as the product is good quality). Colors- The first 3 top colors are all MATTE. The second row 3 colors are pearl shimmer The last row (bottom) 3 colors are pearl shimmer except "Nude Beach"-which is more of a pearl shimmer/glitter color. I've read a lot of reviews about the Nude beach and glitter, but so far I actually havent had any problems with this one. A little glitter falls out here and there, but nothing to the extreme. I also find that this one is a great layering to any other color like purple, blues, and pinks of any other shawdows you have. :) I always apply Nude beach with my finger tip anyways-so this may be small trick to getting a very tiny amount rather than a brush that will just pick up more of the product much easily. The glitter to me is not too chunky but I actually think this one is one of my favorites. Heaven-the white matte one-is soft, subtle, and smooth, and is perfect for highlighting, brow bone, tear duct, and even a slight sweep under your eyes if your concealor isn't covering it enough. Velvet Revolver- a very light matte toupe /light brown beige color that is very light but very nice and natural. Sexpresso- a very matte dark chocolate brown. Silky Teddy- (one of my favs of this palette)-a very pretty pearly shimmer light peach/pink. Push up- (another fav)-a pretty bronze brown pearly/shimmer Erotica- a pretty dark gray-ish brown shimmer pearly shadow (another fave) Honey pot-a pretty gold pearly shimmer Cocoa puff- a pearly bronze brown shimmer ALL of these are really wearable. Just fabulous.. I wear them these ways (so many ways)! 1. Cocoa puff on lid/Pushup in crease 2. silk teddy on lid/sexpresso in crease 3. honeypot on lid/erotica in crease 4. sexpresso on lid/ push up in crease 5. cocoa puff on lid/silk teddy in crease ...there is SO many ways to wear these! (including the way the cards are using them three ways). My favorite row is the middle one "Classic" overall, and the 2nd would be "Fashion", and 3rd natural. The lasting power of these is also very very good, I did not get any creases (but I also use primer under my shadow). I will def buy this whenever I run out.
