I really wanted to love this! I really like how smooth it makes my face feel and my makeup glides on over it. It seemed to make my pores look less noticable. However it started to break my face out really bad. I haven't used any other new item on my face since I bought it. So I am sure it is the culprit! :-( I am so sad! I really liked it! I would definately buy it again if I wasn't so sensitive to breaking out!!

I am really not sure why there are so many bad reviews on this scent. I guess just personal preference. :-D I really like it!! I think it smells like candy..well, on me it does, maybe not on everyone. It has a tropical smell. You have to check how it smells with you're body chemistry though, but I have had several compliments and my husband loves the smell too. (Big Plus) It doesn't last all day, but if you layer it will last quite a while. I don't always go by what these reviews say if I did I would have bought the sensual Amber and I really didn't like that one. Too Masculine on me... :-(
This fragrance is ok, but I wouldn't spend the money again on a scent that I didn't absolutely LOVE. I did really like the packaging and the bottle is SUPER cute! I like sweet smelling perfume and this is more flowery to me. I really wanted to like it...but oh well. You definately need to use a lot and it doesn't last very long. I also thought it started smelling different on me after a while too. It just wasn't what I expected it to be. It wasn't the worst scent I have ever smelled, but I won't be getting it again!
I just purchased a sample of this... I go through Sentiments.com for most of my fragrance purchases. This scent is not what I was expecting. It's more citrus than anything else. I don't hate it, but I am not in love with it and probably won't purchase a full size. I look for more tropical, Sweet and sometimes powdery scents and thought I would find it with Pacific Paradise.
I really love this fragrance. It is sweet and sort of powdery...kindof like Cotton candy or maybe burned sugar (like someone else said) I don't think it's overpowering at all and my husband likes it too! This is definately a Favorite!
I got this as a sample...which I normally try and do before I purchase. Only because I have learned the hard way ;-) I really like this scent...think green apples...mmmm just enough fruity fragrance and not overpowering. Worth a Purchase!
I got this as a sample. Sorry to be one of the oddballs here, but I really didn't like this scent AT all. It smells... well...old or something. Thank god it didn't last very long on me. I like fruity, tropical scents better. This was anything but fruity and I swear I have smelled another perfume that has a similar scent... just can pinpoint. Needless to say I will not be purchasing this. Eww!

Just enough color to give you a peachy flushed look. Kinda like you're blushing, "Only Better" I love it... Give it a try!
I love this product... I put it over my foundation for a subtle glow. It is amazing and I love it. It isn't too glittery or shiny. It's perfect! Give it a try. I will definately re- purchase!
Liquid -Paula's Choice - Best Face Forward Foundation SPF 25

Ok, I am still getting used to the shaking my foundation thing ;-)..and yeah the texture is a bit strange. It goes on differently than other foundations I have used before. It definately goes on better with a sponge and it has amazing staying power. So far...I have to say I like it. Only 4 lippies though just because of all the shaking! hehe I'd probably buy it again.

I have never tried Gel eye-liners before so this may not be considered a "true" review until I do. ;-) BUT...I REALLY like this. It comes in a small pot and I use my garden botanika liner brush to put it on. It also has excellent staying power. I'd definately give this a try!
OMG I didn't know!!! I am sooo sad! This has been the only foundation I have used and then went back to over and over. It has amazing coverage and staying power. Thanks to the previos post for the "tip" I will have to try that... Geez, I am bummed now! ;-(

The same exact thing happened to me as the previous post. I could not figure out where that oily spot at the crown of my head came from until I stopped using this and then used it again. It was coming from something in this product...So annoying and very weird. Needless to say I guess I won't be using this again. ;-)

I liked the way this foundation went on my face... Very smooth and even. It also gave a sort of dewy appearance (which I personally love). It wasn't priced too expesive either and good color selection. I found a nice match....BUT This Foundation isn't long lasting and in a week my face broke out pretty bad. ;-( I wanted to like it so bad too...
This is a Great Foundation that I have had very good luck with. NO breakouts, good color match, lasts long, goes on smooth (over moisterizer). I will definately repurchase!
