I agree with others on here that this doesn't stay well and when it wears off, it looks like you have cheesy lip liner on. The other stains that don't have the balm feature don't moisturize but at least they stay on.
I bought this for myself and for my sister after hearing so many good things about it. We are both fair skinned. W both agreed that this stuff is terrible. It's difficult to apply, especially as a blush. It takes a lot of product, at least on us, to show up at all.

I love this color. I bought it on sale thinking it was orange-y red. It looks nothing like it does in the bottle. It's a sheer poppy pink (I use 3 coats). I love it on my feet, but I really love it on my fingers. It looks a little different in different lights...sometimes it looks like a neon pink (not cheesy 80s neon pink) and sometimes it looks like a true poppy pink. I feel like your pink options are either super light, barely pink, reddish pink, or pepto bismal pink...this was the pink I was looking for.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Deep Action Cream Cleanser

I have been using Clean and Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser for over a decade. It's the only face wash I've tried that actually gets my skin clean, truly fresh-feeling. I wear a lot I sunscreen...this is the only wash that removes it and cleans my pores. I moisturize right after using it. It could be drying and irritating to some people, but to me, it leave my face clean and refreshed.
I love this stuff. I use it as blush. I wear a lot of sunscreen, so, during the day, I can't wear powder blush. This goes on smoothly and blends easily. And Orgasm lives up to the hype...it is so flattering. I'm so pale, but I still don't need much of this. Also, it must be great quality because I left it in my car once in July...I was sure it was destroyed...it was a little melty on top, but it was fine,,,nothing about the consistency changed. Great stuff.
Terrible. I'm mystified by the constant barrage of plugs this mascara gets. It clumps instantly and is sticky. Doesn't lengthen at all...does nothing, really, except make your lashes look like tarantula legs.

This is a great exfoliant. It does sting and it can cause a chemical burn (I can't put it on parts of my neck, it causes a burn that looks and feels like a sunburn). But this stuff really makes your skin smooth and glowy after use. I may try a different product in the line to avoid the burning.
Love this stuff, mainly for the color, which on me, is like a barbie doll pink. And it's matte, not very sheer, even though it says "hint of color". My stick broke too, bad packaging. I like the C.O. Bigelow tinted balms in general, but this color is very unique. The peppermint makes it tingly and nice-smelling. It's not made anymore, I don't think, but you may be able to get it on amazon.
This is it. The search is over. This is perfect blush. I don't know why, but it works for everyone. I am very pale...as fair as you can be without being albino and this stuff looks great. During the day, I use the multi (it's a stick you smear on, like cream blush) because I wear so much sunscreen, the powder blush doesn't go on very well. I really don't wear much make-up, just blush and sometimes mascara and lipstick, so my blush choice is crucial. This is the best color and formula I've come across, I no longer need to try anything else.
I keep one of these everywhere: in my bag, on my desk, on my nightstand. I use it on my lips, on scars, and on my face when it needs a little moisture (my colleagues joke that I'm rubbing a glue stick all over my face). It's basically the same as the jar of Palmer's cocoa butter, but in a convenient form of a stick. I still need the jar to do my nightly slather before bed, but this stick goes everywhere with me.

My secret weapon. I don't mean to brag, but I get a lot of compliments on my skin...few times a month, at least. I don't use any expensive products. I wear sunscreen, I exfoliate once a week, and I moisturize and THIS is my night cream. I slather this stuff all over my face, neck, and chest, and when I get up in the AM, my face is still dewy and soft. Please buy this, so they never stop making it. I don't know what I'd do without it.

This is my favorite lipstick. I think this is one of those chameleon colors because everyone has a different description of it. I am VERY fair, as pale as you can get without being albino, but I have pink in my skin, esp my cheeks. Someone on here described it as being a "pearly reddish pink with a hint of coral" and I think that's what it is in me. It's very flattering and it lasts a long time. It is not a subtle color on me, but not many colors are subtle on me.
