Lovely shade of peachy pink and good pigmentation but this blush doesn't stand out enough to warrant the price tag. I have a deluxe sized sample, I wouldn't pay that much for a commonly dupable color like this. Nice blush but not a necessity.

There was nothing special about this to me and it gave me tiny breakouts around the edge of my top lip, which happens with most glosses but never balms. Not moisturizing either.
I've bought like 5 colors so far-teal, blue, Olive, gold and purple (I'll add names later). The gold and green were awesomely creamy but the teal and blue were dry and hard to work with, I may have gotten duds though. I haven't tried the purple yet but when I swatched it it was like the blue n teal in dryness. They stay on well and work great as primers so I'll overlook the dryness on some of them. And their $5, much cheaper than all the other brands that have these. I'll eventually pick up other colors if they don't DC these like HC does with everything else good.

I only had to use this once to know it wasn't for me. I used it at night and when I woke up the next morning my skin looked lovely but my t zone had a very angry zit growing. By mid day I had full blown cystic acne around my nose. Also the scent of this is very strong, which is why I used it at night. Note: The only things that have caused cystic acne on me are certain lotions and face primers.

I actually really like this despite the smell. It doesn't bother me too much to make me not use this tho. It moisturizes pretty good on my combo skin and no breakouts so far. It did sting a tiny bit for like a second the first time I tried it but that was it, it doesn't do that any more. It evens my skin tone out wonderfully but I do have a gripe, by the end of the day my oily t zone looks weird...like my pores pushed it back out and its just sitting on top of my skin/oil. I also did not pay full price for this, target had it for $8 so I picked up a bottle than went back for a backup before it hit full price again.
I have pale lips, almost no color and this shows up as a pretty med toned pink on me. It's thick but not like mac, I like this better. It's very natural looking.
OMG this is such a great color! It's like warm fresh blood in powder form ( sorry if that sounds disgusting). Great as a lip color.

I bought this in Gold Spun (gold, taupe, white, brown, black) and its actually pretty good. I rarely buy DS es these days but this was half off so I grabbed one. The only color I don't care for is the white, it's chalky.
I bought the bodyspray, which is an amazement in its own because I haven't bought perfume or body spray since I discovered BPAL some time ago. Most sprays bother my allergies badly but this didn't. It has a beautiful scent of fruit and flowers. The bottle is cute, a bit expensive so I bought the small size which will last me forever anyways. I'd def buy it again.

This is pretty nice stuff. Price isn't too high and since I only use 1 pump on my shoulder length fine wavy hair it will last me a long time. I'm VERY sensitive to smells and this doesn't bother me at all. Best thing I've found so far that doesn't make my hair stiff n crunchy.
Such a cute palette. The colors in this are: Midori (grass green), Dollipop (bright pink), Afterparty (bright blue) & Tako (white). All are matte acc Midori which has a lil bit of sheen but not much & have great pigmentation. But as with any e/s ALWAYS use a base/primer to really make these pop. The palette is a great price for how much you get, these pans are huge. CS is great & Amy always aims to please.

This is a great bright pink e/s, very pigmented. You get a HUGE amount of product for the price & Amy (the owner) is such a sweetheart.
This is a really nice warm purple (not overly warm tho). Its got great sheen & sparkle to it, my fav out of the chromalust purples.
