A beautiful cream blush. The color is warm coral. Looks very natural. The product is certified organic. The packaging i quite heavy.
I don't like any of the Chanel perfumes - too strong - until now. I tried it in the airport and kind of liked it. LOVE the bottle. I use three spritzes - one on each arm and one on the neck. The smell is warm and a bit sweet. I don't get any specific notes apart from maybe roses? Definitely a fall/winter scent. Doesn't get a lot of love here on MUA, though...
For som time I have been looking for a more grown up scent for going out. These days I usually wear Love, Chloé or Balenciaga Paris to work. So many of the stronger scents on the market are too much - you smell them befor the person who is wearing them enters the room. At first this is quite strong, but after 30 minutes or so it morphs into something more subtle, personal and not instantly recognizable. Really like this one.
This looks quite boring, but it is a great basic basic blush. I'm Asian NC25-30. This blush is a warm terracotta, but VERY sheer. Something between a blush and bronzer. If you ar very pale, this could work as a bronzer for you. I use it almost every day to add some color to my cheeks. I apply a rosy/pink blush on top (NARS Desire, BB Nectar or Pale Pink). Will buy again.
New fragrance from Chloé. Apparently it is inspired by the scent of a Coty face powder. The notes are: orange blossom, pink pepper, iris, lilac, wisteria, hyacinth, heliotrope, powdery musk, talc and rice. The scent is powdery, especially the drydown. It is (almost) old fashioned floral. No fruit or patchouli. Very pretty and not sexy. I really like it - not sure that I love it. EDIT (sept 2012): Has become my everyday go-to scent. Love it! (from 3 to 5 lippies)
New scent from Balenciaga under the direction of Nicolas Ghesquière. The scent is created by Olivier Polge. Old fashioned and at the same time mordern violet scent. Starts out fresh and ends more like a sweet, powdery skin scent. Very nice. If you like Chanel no. 5 you´ll probably like this - this is not for a girl but for a woman. Update (March 14th - 2010): The more I wear this, the more I like it. One should definately try this more than one time in the store because it changes so much.
This is a cream to powder blush - the texture is moist but it blends into the skin withou tugging. There are three different colors: a pink, a peach and a rosy brown. This is a review of the peach color. The texture is great. Easy to work with. Can go on top of cream base or mineral powder foundation. The color is peachy pink and works great with my coloring (I'm Asian NC20-25) but I think it would be fine with cool undertones as well. The color is sheer. The pink one seems more opaque. All in all a great product.
Haven´t really noticed growth of my lashes. However, I love this product. I don´t like mascara, but I have Asian straight lashed and I use an eye lash curler every day. This product is perfect for holding the curl and at the same time it enhances the lashes. An SA almost didn´t believe that I wasn´t wearing mascara :)

MLBB. Beautiful neutral rose color. Creamy and a bit more sheer than BB regular lipsticks. I usually wear gloss, but wanted something less glossy for a more grown up look. This is perfect. No scent.

Nice cream shadow. Easy to work with and long lasting. The color it shimmering taupe - quite sheer and the color is light. Great neutral shade for natural makeup looks.
Really like this. It's perfect for work because it's very descrete. I do smell the coconut. The lime is only present the first 30 minutes. After a while it's a sweet musky scent, but still fresh. Perfect for spring. Only four lippies because it is not the most original perfume and it is not long lasting. Will repurchase.
I needed a blush for my pale winterskin (Asian NC25). Everything I had looked harsh. This is the perfect pale pink blush with very subte shimmer - gives a nice glow. It's quite sheer, but that's what makes it perfect.
Great product. Didn't believe the hype. But I got an allergic reaction to a lipstick and my lips were dry and flaky and nothing seemed to help - not even my beloved Murad lipbalm. I applied it before bed and woke up with soft lips. I don't believ in the "miracle", but this lipbalm works. Because of the price: try to sample it first. Only four lippies because of the price.UPDATE:Still loving this lipbalm. The texture is very nice - not super sticky - and work well under lipstick/-gloss. I've repurchased. Newest update: Gave this 5 lippies. My lips have been in perfect shape ever since I purchased this.
This is made espeicially for cystic acne. What I really like about this product and what makes it different from so many others is the fact that is doesn't burn the skin or make it peel. Instead it seems to sooth as well as reduce the redness and swelling of the pimple. I use it several times a day without any problems. However, this is not a miracle product, but the best I've tried so far. My skin type: Combo/sensitive. Occasional stress related pimples.
Very sweet scent. I only wear this on sunny weekends. I've noticed that the scent becomes cloying if it isn't left to dry for quite some time without covering it with clothes - if that makes any sense. Still it isn't a favorite. Will try other scents by Comptoir.
