This blush is like the Jaegermeister of blushes. Just don't overdo it and everything will be fine! A little goes a long way, so dont let the color of this blush in the pan intimidate you! (or internet photos floating out there showing WAY HEAVY. applications of this product) I use a fan brush to apply this blush and LIGHTLY apply until I achieve the healthy youthful looking flush I am going for. DESIRE rocks! I love it.

Sorry but I strongly dislike the taste and smell of these lipsticks. They are also very drying. Good color range, but the downsides are just too much for me to buy any of these lipsticks again.
Smudge resistant. Great color. A deep candy pink. Purchased at Sally Beauty for $5.29. I want to go buy some other colors
These are glitter makeup you apply by dipping a small brush into a clear water with a tad of alcohol in it, liquid adhesive, then dipping it into the glitter product, which turns it gel- like. It dries pretty quickly. There is a wide range of shades. They come in three types...1) Fine 2) Super Fine 3) Sugar The Fine and Super Fine refers to the size of the glitter) which you can use on their own as a shadow or a liner. I think I like the Superfine better. The Fine is gorgeous and super shiny bordering on chunky...The Fine can look a little like Circus makeup to me..or maybe Halloween, or Anime Expo! 3) Sugar: Meant to be worn over eyeshadow or liner. The Superfine is more for everyday looks, especially with the more toned down colors. Can't go wrong with the Superfine color Honey Drop. It's halfway between a gold and a silver, and would be beautiful for everyday, or on a bride's lids who loves that extra pop of shimmer, while bordering on still having a soft demure flavor because of the subtle shade. The Fine is bigger glitter, and is more for dramatic stage or costume looks I think. Very reflective of the light and looks a bit more chunky if you put a lot on. I got Sugar Cane Fine (beautiful with brown eyemakeup), and Bubble Gum Fine (Bubble Gum is a true hot pink that I wear on my LIPS over MAC Dear Diary) I got SugarPlum, Licorice Stick, Razzleberry, and Honeydrop Superfines. I got the Marshmallow Sugar for a wet look on my lids. I got to see these in person, and experiment with the colors....which you can mix together to create your own custom shades....I found this fun stuff at the Anime Expo 2012, but I think you can order it online. Also, the girl told me you get free liquid replacements for life! You just mail them your empty bottle.
This is an AWESOME product to cover blemishes so that no one will even know you're wearing something as there is no glitter, glimmer etc. It is UNDETECTABLE in both indoor and outdoor lighting. The trick is to use it on a CLEAN nicely EXFOLIATED face, get the correct shade for your skin Don't use too much blend blend blend
I LIKE this scent! It's surprising because I thought I had outgrown young scents like this... It's a mood lifting, bright, happy scent! Maybe the trick is I have it in the hand lotion. You get a burst of fragrance when you use it, and then it fades away, so you don't get sick of it.

I just bought this color today at the CCO (Cosmetics Company) and it looks beautiful on. Don't let the color in the tube scare you. I am warm toned, NC25.
VERY DRYING!! FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY. I wore this concealer and pictures were taken of me, and it emphasized every line and was horrible. I had watched a makeup video on you tube and followed the makeup artist's instruction to use this as under eye concealer for a bridal look. Not good if you have dry under eye skin!!!
Finally! A scent that softly complements my mood and my body chemistry. Light, airy, feminine, clean. I would much rather reapply a scent when necessary than give everyone I meet a punch in the face with my perfume when they're six feet away.
For me, at this time in my life, It's a scrubber! I'm in a phase of liking soft subtle perfumes right now. This was like being hit with big flowery plume of bug spray. Yikes! I couldn't wait to get home and wash it off. Cute bottle though! LOL!
I can review this perfume in one word...uhh..NO! For me, at first the perfume does smell good and citrusy FOR SECOND, but then in the drydown it smells just like my blue-haired great-grandmother's clothes used to smell. I think it's the strong smell of cedar that is offending my nose. It's ironic that the younglings seem to love this scent so much, and it reminds me of the oldest person I ever knew! Maybe the great-grandmother's of yesteryear are being reincarnated and wearing Light Blue! LOL!
