This is one of my favorite Spring shades...and most likely will carry on over to Summer! For reference, I'm perfect/light neutral shades in EDM but I fall victim to everything turning orange/yellow/dark on me so I'm really more of a warm toned Asian chick. Butterfly Kisses is a light golden yellow and while it looks very shimmery in the jar, it's not so noticible on. Since colors turn on me, its more of a goldenrod yellow shade on my lids (I use the finger pat technique). It looks great on my inner corners, with the outer half so far I've been changing it up with pink/peach/bronze e/s shades (and some eyesafe blushes that look like crap on me lol) Overall it gives a great warm look without being to over the top.
This is probably the only l/g i've bought over and over and I'm so glad its a ds item... Well not only a ds item but one that has promotions/coupons that are always around! Just for reference, I'm an nc30 with pigmented lips... and not the pretty pink rosy lips, but a sickly dead purplish muted pink (haha ok maybe i'm over exaggerating). When worn, its warms up my lips and gives me a shiny natural look. Like previous reviews, it doesnt feel sticky and it does not have a detectable scent/flavor which is great when I layer it over l/s. Yay for being so universal!

Currently my HG foundation! This is the only foundation that doesn't sit on my face and it looks so natural on! It is also very easy to apply, I use both a foundation brush and a damp sponge and get no streaking whatsoever. For reference, I'm an NC30/LSF #5 and use both sunny beige and honey beige for the summer.
This is such a beautiful color! The green/blue shimmer isn't that noticible, but just enough to make this a unique gloss. I have very pigmented lips and at first this didn't show up at all. I now use a nude liner (Streetwear "Nothing") and the peachy/melon color comes through and looks perfect for both Spring and Summer.
