It's a nice product with a lovely smell but I don't think I will be buying it again, I'll try other body butters instead and maybe choose something more moisturizing.

KissKiss glosses get a really good rep on the makeup board and no wonder! Great lasting power, non-offensive smell and #66 is a great shade! It has pink and gold shimmer particles which I absolutely love. I'm really impressed with the quality.
I love this! It's cheap and does a great job. I don't see the point of spending any more on a mascara since this has all I want. Try it!
This is my only blush and I would buy it again! It's great on my cool PPP skin. I love the slight shimmer it has. I'm using it daily - a HG!
The smell is absolutely wonderful and it leaves the prettiest sheen on my lips! And when you compare how much product it has, it's cheaper than Clinique's Superbalm! Only one problem - it's just not moisturizing enough for those bitter-cold winter days. Perfect for summer, okay for winter. Would buy again for the smell and the sheen.
I had no intentions of buying this when I went to the NARS counter. I asked for a blush and she put Nico under my eyes and on my chin and Orgasm on my cheeks and when I looked into the mirror, I knew I had to have both. This really lights up my face and makes it glow. The shimmer looks scarier in the box, I have to say, it's really nice on. I use it daily.

I'm on my second tester tube of it (that's right, I haven't forked out the cash yet) and so far so good. The process takes a bit of time getting used to but the results are great. My skin feels so smooth and just glows. Four lippies because of the price (ouch!) and the application process - too much skin-pulling in order to liquify the emulsion.

First of all, any product that gets rid of so many blackheads gets 5 lippies from me! I have combination skin and although I was a bit worried this might dry out some areas of my face, my skin is doing great. My skin feels really clean after this and has less blackheads - perfect. Did I mention no blackheads?
Moisturizers -Yves Saint Laurent - Hydra Tech-Optimum Hydration Creme Spf 8

This creme worked well on most of my combination skin but when the weather got colder I still got dry patches! And the smell is pretty awful, does it have to be so strong? I used up the 5 ml tester but won't purchase the full-size jar.
I have very oily eyelids and I bought this hoping for a miracle. Sure, my eyeshadow lasted a while longer, but it was still only for 4-5 hours. I won't repurchase this one because I finally found a e/s primer that lasts for 10+ hours - Artdeco. Don't waste your money on Lumene if you have oily oilylids!
Eye Shadow -Yves Saint Laurent - Ombre Vibration Duo Eyeshadows

I have this in #39 Velvet Plum/Satin Pink, it's a new shade for fall 2005. Both colors have some beautiful golden shimmer in them. And even though I love the colors I'm blown away by the quality! They last so much longer than Chanel e/s and they are very pigmented. It comes with 2 different applicators and one of them is perfect for applying the darker shade as a liner. I'm very curious to try other YSL eyeshadows!
This is my HG! I can't believe that after a 10-hour day my eyeshadow hasn't creased one bit! I previously tried Lumene but Lumene creased after 5-6 hours. Artdeco comes in this small round pot, it's easy to apply and has a strong scent. I can't decide if I like or dislike the scent but it doesn't linger. The price of this is very good - 6 euros and it contains 5 ml of product. Definitely try this one!
I got this in 02 for my PPP skin and brunette hair and I use the lightest shade. I love the brush - it's very hard and thus very precise. The color is also perfect. Can't believe I waited for so long to try this!
It was quite expensive and the white cast it left on my lips was just too much! Def would not buy again.

I'm very happy I read the reviews before setting out to get a TM! First of all, my face is on the oily side and this works brilliantly. It keeps the greasy shine at bay and offers lovely coverage. Doesn't look like I'm wearing makeup but makes my skin look so much better! Don't be scared by the color of this stuff, it doesn't look orange on. I had a hard time choosing between #1 and #2 but ended up getting the #1. This is my FIRST HG! But if you have flaky skin, test it out first, it might work differently on dry skin.
