The previous reviews pretty much sums it up. It's a natural rosy color, sheer but buildable. It applies smoothly and easily; it's hard to mess up on its application. It's a perfect match for my medium-brown (medium olive) skintone. I love this blush so much that I'll be looking into more blushes by Lancome.
Designer Bloom is a Sheen lipstick in the Pink/Berry family. It looks warm in the tube but on the lips it's a rosey color. It goes on smoothly and is sheer but buildable.The texture is similar to MAC lustre lipsticks but isn't as drying. Designer Bloom has taken MAC Sophisto's place as my favorite lippie. On my lips and side-by-side, Sophisto has more blue. Designer Bloom is a more natural rosey-red color and matches my medium-brown filipino skintone much better. I love this lipstick so much, I'm looking at Lancome for other colors. It is expensive but I have a hard time finding lipsticks that work well on me so the price is worth it. I hope this color is never discontinued.
Love! Rich, deep blue-red with a subtle warm shimmer. I have a pic of this color in my profile. Update--Dec. 12, 2009: OPI has discontinued this color :-(
Concept is a matte navy eyeshadow. I mainly use it as an eyeliner. I really like Smashbox eyeshadows because they are highly pigmented and are easily blended. Kind of expensive but I'd replace it when the time comes.
A shimmery, purplish red with pink undertones. It's somewhat bright but I like bright colors. This is a pretty color.
A bright, warm red creme. The color is more red on the nails than in the bottle. It also turns out to be a bit brighter; in the bottle the red looks muted. I like it best on my toes. I'm glad I bought this but I wouldn't buy it again. I like some of the other OPI reds better. ***Update***I tried this again on my tips and I am liking it. I'd get this color again. To me, it's like a redder Dutch Tulips.

I have the set of 3 eye brushes and I like them all. They have a good weight and length; they feel good in my hands and are easy to use. I find the shape of all 3 brushes to be very efficient. I've had them for about 8 months now and haven't had any shedding.

I like this color--a medium dark mauve--and the gloss formula is not tacky. It does have a lot of shine so I just use a tiny bit. The color is very natural on me.
Love this color, love this liquid liner brand. I have oily lids and I have no problems with this liner fading or smudging. Lasts all day and is easy to wash off. The brush tip is also easy to manage.
My favorite all-over face color. It's kind of pink in the jar but doesn't show up on me as pink. It just brightens up my face. I use the Smashbox Face Brush #1 to apply it.
Bright pink rose with lots of silver shimmer. I like the the color but the silver shimmer is too much for me. It has a kind of silver metallic sheen that doesn't appeal to me.
I originally did not like this color too much but tried it again and I like it this time around. Kangarooby is a dark brownish red on me and has a hi-gloss finish.
OPI Red is a medium pink-red creme but it isn't exactly a flat creme. In direct, bright sunlight it has a little bit of a pink shimmery undertone. It's a pretty color, a solid medium red to me. Not too bright, not too dark. I would buy this again.
I am loving this color! You Rock-apulco Red is a bright red with a shimmery pink/red undertone. This vivid red is similar to Deer Valley Spice but Deer Valley Spice is a little more cooler toned. I love them both.
Flashy! Medium dark pink with a bright purple frost. A very fun color on my toes. Its bright color reminds me of colored easter eggs. Two coats covers well, but I like it best with three coats.
