I love the scent of this product-- it really does lift my mood! I hope Origins expands this line to include scent or essential oils. It's a little bit like their discontinued FretNot line but GloomAway notes mainly grapefruit instead of mandarin. The souffle isn't for your hands though; it takes awhile to absorb.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Eye Shadow - Brown Stone

When I received a sample of Bobbi Brown Metallic Eyeshadow in Brownstone I didn't think I could wear such a dark color on my lid. Wow, I was totally wrong! I learned that this product was designed to be 1) creaseless, 2) creamy in appearance, and 3) designed with a patented technology that allows you to build and layer this shadow to your designed intensity. So I can wear it very sheer or really build it up along my lashline. I feel like it applies best when it is pressed to the lid with my fingertip or a flat brush.
Eye Shadow -BeneFit Cosmetics - Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner-BIRTHDAY SUIT

Benefit's Cream shadows are amazing! I like to use them for a base and then layer powder shadows over the top; they keep my eyelid creaseless all day and they don't cause a textured look like other shadow bases. 'Birthday suit' is a gorgeous pewter neutral.
Moisturizers -Bobbi Brown - Extra Moisturizing Balm

Love this. Bobbi Brown's Extra Moisturizing Balm changed my skin completely. My skin borders on dry to extra dry and the balm can be used to cover my entire face before makeup or just patted onto dry areas after makeup. This moisturizer is truly very very dense, so the secret is to warm it up in your fingertips and press it to the skin. Don't try to rub it, because it will pull. It's a great base for makeup and plumps up my skin for a healthy glow!!
