Smells identical to Coco, but cloying.
I love the color: it's a very sheer (almost too sheer) light peach. I do have to take one lippie away for staying power, though. The texture is quite thin and doesn't stay on long.
A great color, but far too greasy to use on my cheeks or my lips. This is like an oil slick.

It does curl my lashes, but the batteries run down after about a week! If you have an endless supply of AAAs, this is the product for you.
A great pale, slightly milky pink but doesn't make me look washed out. Pink usually looks terrible on me, but this is so subtle. Creamy but not sticky or tacky.

Love this blush. It's oil-free, so it isn't greasy but it's creamy enough to blend easily and it lasts much longer than most cream blushes. The color is a light, sheer coral that's perfect those of us with a warm undertone. I'm a warm LLL/MMM with yellow; this is a great alternative to pink for someone like me.
A perfect pure peach lip gloss. This is a staple I cannot live without. Looks great with MAC Sheertone blush in Sincere.
This made my face orange with sparkles. Yuck. If you want a superior alternative, I recommend the Bobbi Brown gel bronzer, which has a brown base an looks far more natural.

This mask really does work on oily skin and blemishes, but I have two complaints 1) I wish it came in a tube, 2) no matter how hard I try, I can't keep from getting it in my eyes when I rinse, and the sulfur really stings.
Love this lip gloss. The color is a sheer, well, tangerine that gives my whole face a sunny glow. I took one lippie away because I really don't care for the sticky, tacky texture of BB gloss. It does add to the staying power, though.

This is an amazing lip gloss - I can't believe I paid so little for it. I'm not usually a fan of drugstore brands, but this one won me over. This is a sheer bronze YLBB shade that looks great with my summer makeup (mostly the NARS Palm Beach Multiple). It's not too sticky, not too thin with a smooth feel. Very nice.
This didn't look bronzy at all on me, just taupe, which was really unflattering. This is a shade much more suited to an eye shadow than a lip gloss. Big thumbs-down from me.
I was shocked when I opened this compact for the first time: There was a heavy layer of oil spread over the top of the shadow, just like you would find on a pizza. I was sure I would send it back, but decided to wipe it off with a tissue and see what was underneath. After wiping not only the oil but the top layer of shadow I was very pleasantly surprised. The color (Patina, a golden-green) is gorgeous, and I don't have problems with creasing. It looks terrific with my green eyes. Expensive, but worth it.
I'm a big fan of the Multiples, but I have to say St. Barts is my least favorite. The taupe shade is just too flat and brown to use anyplace but on my eyes or lips; it just looks dirty on the rest of my face. I give it three lippies as an e/s, but won't purchase again because $35 is just too much for a an occasional e/s.
I disagree with other reviewers who see this as "muddy" or "dirty" brown. It actually looks more like a dark, rosy peach shade on me. Ninotchka looks fabulous and very natural with a tan. Probably my favorite NARS blush, and I've tried most of them.
