I'm pretty impressed with this Fresh cream. I finally got around to using a sample tube that I got from something or other to try on my dry, flaky, desert-parched legs. They're really dry in the winter and I have to typically lotion a couple times a day just to make them stop itching
With the Fresh, I didn't have to. I used a normal amount in the morning and my legs weren't dry at all by the time I went to bed, where they'd typically be dry and itchy by mid-afternoon.
I took a lippie off for the smell. Just kinda odd.
I got #15 in a set with #12 and #13. It is LE. I adore the lip shimmer texture-- has a great applicator, but this particular color looks like shimmery death on me. It's a shimmery pale peachy champagne kind of shade. I can't even say it's all that pigmented-- just shimmery, bordering on frosty and it tones down my slightly pigmented lips. I wouldn't call it MLBB in any situation, b/c it just looks awful.
I have developed an affinity for the GA lip shimmers. Great formula, with an actual, honest to goodness useable applicator. #12 is LE and is a really lovely pink color with a little bit of peach and gold to it. It does show up a teeny bit frosty, which I don't love and it's not particularly a unique color as far as the pink goes--- I could probably recreate it with other things if I tried, but it IS a color that I will go back to while I can.
I never thought I could wear such a cool toned blush color! This lovely pink has become a staple in my m/u wardrobe--- and the darn tin is so huge it's going to last me forever! I like to wear it w/ taupes on my eyes or purples and then a matching baby pink l/g. Gorgeous with a capital G. Love it! FFF/NC25, Stila 40 watts/dk brn hair & eyes
I've never had very much luck with berry shades on my lips and cheeks. This is no exception. I love CCs as far as texture goes, but this color is just too flaming bright fuschia to make it work. I look like I'm trying too hard and blending doesn't seem to help. On my lips, it's worse. I hate this color-- I had such high hopes. FFF/Stila 40watts IPF, NC25/dk brn hair/eyes
I received this in a swap and thank goodness I didn't spend any real money on it. Yes, my skin felt soft, but it probably would if I scrubbed a brillo pad over it too. Ouch!
Between the price for what you get, the way it crumbles while you're trying to keep it together and actually use the darn stuff, and the hard bits that you actually scrub with- it's NOT worth it. I'll stick with my sugar scrubs.
This trio is SO pretty! I found it on Ebay for cheap and I just wish I would have found it sooner. It's a trio that actually looks good when you wear it together! Amazing! One's a soft light tan, chocolate brown and then golden bronze. I wish I could find another one, because I know I'll run out of this one soon enough! FFF- drk brown hair/eyes
I really like this color. I was looking for a matte shade to counteract all of the shimmer e/s I've been wearing lately. It's a olive green with gold tone, kind of like a patina. FFF/drk brown hair & eyes

I was excited that this was "smart" but it's really not- it actually changed what parts of my face were dry and oily and switched them. I have dry patches along my temples and underneath my brows and then am breaking out awfully along my jawline and nose. This stuff is the worst. $20 for 1.7 oz.

I received some samples from the Stila MA after we exchanged "fried hair" horror stories. I'm not thrilled with the price of this stuff, but it made my hair feel AMAZING, soft and shiny. I'm definitely loving this!
NC 25/30 FFF- I received a sample from a great swapper and this stuff blended right in and didn't even show up- not even a shimmer. Thumbs down.
I think I have found my HG for concealors! This stuff blends really well and I love that I get 2 shades. I wear Brulee (NC25FFF with dk brown hair/eyes) It doesn't crease on me and covers smoothly. I have dark circles and only the occasional blemish. I wish I got more product for $33, but I'll continue to pay it for the coverage I get.
EDIT: Turns out that I had the wrong color-- I'm not brulee. More appropriate for maybe an NC30. Still a great product, but I moved on to LM undercover
The peach is my FAVORITE color of Baby Pink lipglosses. I wear it over MAC Hot Scotch l/s or by itself. On me, it's actually MLBB on its own (NC25/30 w/pigment. lips) It's VERY sticky and lasts an OK amount for me. Def. repurchase!
I love Baby Pink! Pearl is a great color over other l/s- it is very sticky and comes in a tube. By itself, it's sparkly and opaque, but doesn't look good on me (NC 25/30 w/ pigment. lips)- but over just about every l/s or stain, it's great. So worth $3
I got this in a swap, thinking that I should try more pinks and wanted to try the Anna Sui m/u. This one was WAY too sticky and smelled weird. The color was pink and frosty- washed me out (NC25/30 with pigmented lips). I like tube l/g, but I don't think I'll buy this brand.
