This blush is totally stunning on me...I've already purchased backups just in case they stop making it which usually happens to me when I find HG material!
Where has this been all my life? I was on a NARS binge and decided that this looked pretty so I threw it in my cart and I'm glad I did. This lights up my entire face in a pretty, natural way. It also looks positively stunning as a lipstain on me I am soooo glad I got this one.
I love this shade despite the fact that I avoided it for so long because I really didn't think it would look good on my yellow toned skin, but surprisingly it looks great. I can't use it alone, but over pink toned lipsticks, it looks wonderful, especially with a smokey eye for night. Will be repurchasing a backup immediately!
I was very hesitant to buy this because of the mediocre reviews, but I was at the BB counter checking out her new foundation and something came over me and I had to have it....I'm glad about that now! On me, this is just awesome. Gives me very full, lush lashes and for now, may have replaced my former HG - Dior Show!

Again, I won't go into the color description since everyone has done a great job doing that already - this is the most gorgeous palette ever. The shadows are a dream to apply and are very "glowy" looking. It really brightens up my eyes...adore it! I'm buying a backup.

I have the Apricot and Beige Shimmerbricks and this one is my favorite. Works great with my coloring as an eyeshadow, highlighter and blush. If you want to look like you just got off the beach, dip your brush into the darkest shade and apply it over your nose and right under your eyes LIGHTLY...instant suntan. I pair this with Bobbi's Brown or Rose lipstick (sometimes mixing the two) for a coordinated look. Love this.
This blush is seriously gorgeous! I purchased the new shade, Aqua Crimson, and it gives me the most natural looking flush, making my cheeks look like they are blushing naturally. I just use my fingers to pat it on. Feels great, looks great and last all day.. a winner!

This brush is totally fabulous...I was so wanting this for the longest time, but couldn't justify the $42.00, but finally gave in and got it...WOW! I have Pout's Apricot Toddy blush which I love, but I hardly ever used it because it is so pigmented that I really had to take my time to apply it, but with this brush, it just picks up the perfect amount every time. As other posters have said, this brush makes it look like you are lit from within; no more obvious streaks of color, just a gorgeous glow...love, love, love!
Blush -Kevyn Aucoin - The Creamy Moist Glow in Tansoleil (Apricot)

As others have said, you get an itty, bitty pot of blush for the money, but this is so fab, I don't care. This is the creamiest, most natural looking, pale apricot blush; it's simply gorgeous.
I purchased Orgasm lipgloss to go with the blush and was underwhelmed. I had this in my drawer and guess what - it goes beautifully with Orgasm blush. It's the perfect pinky peach with gold shimmer; lasts a long time as well.
I love Sex Kitten; nice and shimmery; kinda bronzy brown. Along with using the product on my eyes, I use it to cover my gray roots in the front until I get to the salon since the color really blends with my hair! I put a very, very small amount of product between my thumb and index finger and run it over the gray parts...instant cover and out in the sun my hair shimmers; love it!

I have all the shimmerbricks and I had to have this one, but this doesn't show up at all on me. I returned it and purchased Neutrogena Highlighting blush in Fresh which is shimmery too, only $12.00 vs $38.00, and actually shows up!

This thing is truly amazing. I sprung for this after all of the reviews here and at Drugstore.com and I'm not disappointed. As soon as it arrived I had to give it a quick test run so I only buffed for about a minute. I then slathed on my Philosophy Sole Owner and now I can't stop rubbing my feet together - they are that smooth. I can't wait to see how soft my feet will be after using this for a while! Very sturdy looking as well, so I don't think I'll have to replace it any time soon. Even if I had to buy a new one every year, it's still cheaper than getting pedicures at the salon. AWESOME!
Like the previous poster said, this stuff is AWESOME! It leaves my hair super silky and soft. I spent almost $40.00 for the Kerastase conditioner and this is sooo much better and less than half the price for twice as much product. I'll buy this again and again.
This blows my Chi out of the water; what an awesome product! I needed to buy another iron to keep in my suitcase for travelling and after reading a lot of fabulous reviews, I got this (1 1/2") instead. I don't think I'll ever touch my Chi again. This gets your hair pin straight and KEEPS it that way until you wash it again. I did what was suggested in some reviews - washed my hair at night and let it air dry. Of course,t he next morning I looked like I had a rat's nest in my hair and I was annoyed because I didn't think any iron was going to flatten it out; boy was I wrong - five minutes with this baby and it was exactly the way I wanted it - straight with a little body. I also like that it's light and very easy to maneuver. I will never, ever be without this iron - ever!
