I adore this blush. I always use cream blushes and this formula is one of the best. It's super blendable, so even bolder shades like Libido are wearable. The coverage is so buildable that I can use this pinky-coral to create a soft, barely flushed cheek or a bright pop of color. Works just as well under foundation as on top. Using it under, I blend it on with my fingers to create a natural flush. After applying concealer and powder I sometimes add a bit more with a stippling brush for a bit more color. It's so sheer and lightweight it can probably be blended/layered to suit anyone.

I love these! They were always sold out at Sephora, so I was thrilled to find the last pack there a few weeks ago. My job requires me to be at events until late at night - when I'm too lazy to wash my face. I keep these by my bed and they take off everything, smell good, and don't leave my skin dry. I've used other makeup removal wipes and they have always left my skin tight and parched, but not these. I usually rub in a few drops of Sundari essential oil after, but even if I don't I wake up to smooth, bright skin. I should stockpile these!
There's a lot of hate for this stuff, but I love it! I've used it 3 times now and it really does help my hair stay smoother - like a cheaper version of a brazilian blowout. True, it stinks on he first day, but once you let it set and wash the second day, you're good. I have wavy hair that I blowdry and straighten daily and this significantly reduces my hair styling time. One thing to keep in mind: do not use all the sealer (second step), you don't need it all and it makes a great pre-blowdry styling aid. If used correctly, this product is awesome!
This has quickly become my go-to scent. I usually gravitate towards things that are a little earthier and sexier, but there's something so nice about wearing something light and transparent. The leather note really comes through on my skin and keeps it from being to floral. A perfect balance of sheer flowers and earthy leather, Kelly Caleche is one of my few fragrance purchases that will warrant a second bottle. Love the little Kelly bag inspired turnlock on the cap,too.
I got this for $5 at a Bliss sample sale, I don't think I would have bought it otherwise, but now that I've used it for a while I really like it. I always, always use sunscreen on my face, but most are so heavy and I feel like they make my skin shiny and clog my pores. This is super lightweight, the texture is a thin liquid and even though it's tinted it doesn't really leave any color behind. The one thing that's sort of annoying is that the pigment kind of settles into the dry patches in your skin, so if your skin is super dry or flaky, steer clear.

I bought this product as a way to extend the results of an in-office peel and now I'm addicted to it. While it is not quite comparable to what you would get at a Dr.'s office, it does do a good job. Leaves skin very smooth and clear, and it's a nice alternative if your skin is too sensitive for a full strength peel.

I've been using this for about a month now and so far I'm loving it! I usually stay away from foaming gel cleansers because I feel like they strip my skin, but this one is not too drying. It leaves my skin really clean and smooth. I think I'm going to enjoy it even more during the summer when my skin tends to be oilier. It's especially nice at the end of the day; I feel like it's really getting rid of all the gross NYC grime. Overall, a nice, basic everyday cleanser. It smells nice too!
I adore this cleanser. It's my go-to daily cleanser because it's so gentle and not drying at all. It totally removes makeup, but doesn't strip my skin. I use the entire Meaningful Beauty line and this has to be my favorite product in the kit (I also love the mask as well).
I love this cleanser! I fell like it really gets my skin clean without stripping it dry. The scent is nice too, kind of herbal. I use an entire Sundari regimen and I love what it's done for my skin! The essential oils make your skin so soft and smell amazing!
I am completely obsessed with this scent! Every time I wear it someone comments on how beautiful it smells. It does seem to react very differently to each wearer's body chemistry, though. It smells completely different on my sister than it does on me. My advice is to wear the scent for a while before you buy it, and if it ends up being to sweet on you I recommend Onyx, it's a bit smokier and wears well on people who find Pearl a bit cloying.
