This kit is amazing. The value for the products you receive make it a must have. The sex on the beach glimmer is a nice, taupey plum shade that looks great as a crease color or liner, the bikini beach glimmer is a nice pale lavender pink color that could be an all over eye shade or be used on the brow bone to highlight. The retractable face brush is great for travel, and the gossamer all over face color is a cool hint of sparkle for anyone who likes a little shimmer without looking ridiculous. I like to use it as a highlighter on the brow bone or cheekbones. The real find is the soft focus true, which is a beautiful, natural peachy pink shade that reminds me of Nars Orgasm in its hue and wearability factor. The blending and foiling brush is a must have brush as well. The foiling side is great for eyeshadow application, and the blending brush is perfect for swiping a little gossamer over your eye shadow. One of the best BE kits I've ever purchased.
An instant classic, clean and sexy at the same time. Nothing like regular Allure, and far more sensual and sophisticated in my opinion. Love it, and get lots of compliments when wearing it. Light enough for daily wear.
An absolutely classic, lovely fragrance. I feel it's a little too heavy for daytime or summer wear, but a staple for any Chanel lover's fragrance wardrobe.
I get tons of compliments every time I wear this. This is a clean scent which is strong enough to have an impact, yet not so overpowering that it won't work for everyday wear.

This has really helped my dry, on-its-way-to-being damaged highlighted hair. It has made it softer and healthier without weighing it down. I use it everyday and love it.
Shampoo -Aveda - Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo

I now use this most days of the week instead of Shampure, which I used for years, because my hair was getting drier and needed a moisture boost. This stuff fills the bill; it really has made my highlighted hair softer, shiner, and healthier.

I love this stuff. It makes my highlighted, tangle-prone hair easier to comb, and really helps keep split ends a way. I use it daily and love it.
The best shampoo ever. Does not strip color-treated hair, and leaves it soft even with daily shampooing.
Cleansers -DERMAdoctor - Wrinkle Revenge Glycolic Acid Facial Cleanser

I use this stuff and love it. I've tried other glycolic acid cleansers, so I started with Wrinkle Revenge 2, which seems to be the perfect strength for me. Lasts a long time, makes the skin smoother, and I noticed an increased glow to my complexion after my first use. Better than the other glycolic cleansers I've tried, and does a great job of cleansing without stripping the skin of all moisture.
A cream which has a nice firming effect on the skin. I use it before sunscreen. Good texture, not too heavy or oily, and good value for the money. I love the wrinkle revenge eye cream even more.
Treatments (Eye) -DERMAdoctor - Wrinkle Revenge Eye

Hands down the best eye cream I've ever used. It works great, is not too heavy or greasy, fades dark circles, and most importantly, diminishes or gets rid of those little lines. I have used other eye creams in the past, like MD Forte, but this works far better than anything else I've ever tried. Also, a very generous size for an eye cream. I use it twice a day and have for months, and I haven't even used half of the jar. Great stuff.
Sunscreen -DERMAdoctor - DERMAdoctor Body Guard Exquisitely Light SPF 30

A wonderful, non-oily sunscreen with antioxidants and Parsol for UVA protection. Very nice texture, and although I was extremely reluctant to spend this much on a sunscreen, it's a really good product. I find Dermadoctor products to be highly effective and reasonably priced.
Treatments -Desert Essence - Dessert Essence Blemish Touch Stick

Love it. Great for quick clearing of occasional blemishes, and all natural too. Works much better than drying benzoyl peroxide, and a lot less expensive than other products on the market. Highly recommend it.
Light gray and matte, this is the perfect gray eyeshadow. I love it with demure and skyline.
I did not know how this would work on my fair skin, but this is a really pretty color on. I don't know exactly how to describe it, since I think the color is really unique to the BE line. It's kind of a rosy gold reddish color that gives you the most natural flush on. I love it.
