Bronzers -Caboodles - Sunkissed bronzing face powder

I have this in Hawaii and I recommend it to everyone. It's a nice, warming bronzer for this fair, rosy cheeked girl. Also, the price can't be beat.
This is the perfect summertime blush for me. I always pair it with the Nars Heaven eyeshadow duo and they really compliment each other.
I hated this stuff. The tiny bit of shimmer wasn't worth the horrifying scent. And unlike other lotions, the scent never faded. I stunk all day.
I am the odd one in this group because even though I only own one eye duo, I love it! I have the Heaven one... it looks strange in the case, it's a pale peachy orange and pink. But let me tell you, I have blue eyes, pinkish skin and golden brown hair, and everyone comments on how my eyes pop when I wear this combo. If you put it on with a really light hand, it looks great.
Package was cute, but the product sucked. The puff was way too small. The powder was too bright, it wasn't transparent on me at all. And it was kind of expensive, all things being considered. I think just your average skin tone pressed powder works better.
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Shine Delice - All colors [DISCONTINUED]

I have Berries-N-Creme (#201) and Tropical Punch (#710). I love this lipstick. The shine is not as bright as the ads, which is fine by me. I don't think you can get a shine like that unless you're using liquid (MAC Lipglass or NARS Triple X will do the trick). But I love the smell, it smells like cotton candy to me. The Berries-N-Creme is a very light pink, but it actually shows up on me. The Tropical Punch is a berry/brown color. It's similar to Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, except not quite as sheer and a little more pink. All in all, I like these lipsticks.
Lasts forever and is very light. I don't use it every day, but I like having it around.

My very favorite lipstick. I have at least three at a time, one for home, one for my purse and one for at work. I've found that it looks great on everyone. And everyone likes it, tons of compliments!
Skincare - Face -Bliss Labs - Exfoliating Task Mask

I really like these masks. It takes some practice to learn how to use them. I recommend them to anyone... however, here's some more detailed instructions that the Bliss people don't give you. I've learned this over time:
First, some explanation… according to the Bliss people, part of the point of the masks is to suffocate the skin for a short period of time, to assist in delivering the active ingredients. In addition, you can put moisturizer or other products on before the mask, and the mask will speed delivery of that to your skin, as well. It sounds funny, but hey, as far as I can tell, it works.
1. Cut open packet, pour about half of the contents into a plastic bowl. Very important that it’s plastic. If you put it in glass, the clay in the mask squeeks when you stir it. Sounds strange, is strange. Anyway, rubbermaid or tupperware works best, use a small container. Seal up the packet with the other half still inside. Each packet will do 2 face masks, or 1 face/neck/shoulder/chest mask.
2. Add a very small amount of water, stir with a fork. Add a little more water. Be very careful not to add too much water. Too much water will ruin the mask. Use your fork to stir, it works very well for gettting the lumps out. Stir for a while, try to get all the lumps out. The mask will be slightly more firm than the consistency of toothpaste when it is ready for your face.
3. To put on your face: take a couple of fingers (don’t use your whole hand) and put a glob on your cheeks. Push out, toward your hairline. Make sure it’s fairly thick, too thin and it will dry too quickly and hurt to peel it off. Cover your face with the mask, avoiding hair and eye area.
4. To remove mask from your hands after applying, use a paper towel. Don’t try to rinse it off, it will only clog your sink. Same goes for the bowl and fork… let them dry a bit, and the mask will peel right off. Then you can wash them.
5. Allow the mask to mostly dry on your face. You can leave it on for up to 30-40 minutes. It should be rubbery. It usually doesn’t peel off in one piece, it will come off in strips.
6. Enjoy your smooth skin! If you have any other questions, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com
Love it! Worth the price... you pay just as much for lesser dept. store brands like Clinique or Lauder, but this blows those away. Definitely the best out there.
I didn't like these at all. The colors don't come out on your skin they way they look in the package. The texture was nice, but that's about all they had going for them.
