I think that this product is great for adding shine and softness to the hair. My only problem is that I have extremely fine,soft hair and this oil makes it way too soft and hard to resist humidity. I think this product is great for those who have thick, coarse hair. This will add sheen and bounce to the hair without weighing it down. I used it on a daily basis and never notice buildup on my fine hair.
This is one of my favorite balms. It smells like bubblegum without being overly sweet and fruity. I also noticed that this flavor has a different consistency than the other flavors (grapefruit,mint, blackberry tea). I thought it was all in my head but this one does have different ingredients than the others. So for those of you who find jack balms a little on the thick side, this one might be a better fit. It also seems to absorb and penetrate a little faster.
I agree that this color is a redder version of Pink Teaser. It's like a watermelon version of Pink Teaser. Looks even more beautiful over Flamboyante Rouge Allure.
This is a nice baby pink color, with a little shimmer and glossy finish. This is one of my go to colors. Always makes my hands looked very polished and manicured. Gives a classic look without being boring . I like that it's not opaque and gives a my nails but better look. I use this with Chanel's base coat and Poshe top coat and it usually last at least a week.
This color is more pink than coral on my pigmented lips. I really like this color for spring and summer. However, I can no longer wear MAC lip glasses on a daily basis. They dry my lips terribly. So I cannot give this a product a 5 due to the formula but I cannot deny that the color is gorgeous. Looks much prettier on the lips than in the tube. (NC50)

This is a very pretty, natural looking blush. Great for everyday and can coordinate with many looks. I'm so glad I didn't miss out on this one. This one stays in heavy rotation. (NC50)
Blush -Chanel - Joues Contraste in Plum Attraction

LOVE,LOVE,LOVE this blush!! My MA put it on me and when I got home my fiancé loved it so much he wanted to take a picture. I was a little put off by the color in the pan. It looks extremely dark and a little dated but on this skin this baby definitely performs. It's not too loud or dark even on my NC50 complexion, it actually looks very soft and accentuates my cheek bones. I applied this blush far back on the cheek like Cafe Makeup suggest (http://cafemakeup.com/2010/06/chanel-fall-2010-plum-attraction/) instead of on the apples as you would most blushes and it worked like a dream. I would have never thought to purchase a blush of this color, but I'm so glad that I did.
Bronzers -Chanel - Soleil Tan de Chanel - Terre Ambre

I was looking for a bronzer with a matte finish because most of my blushes have some shimmer to them and a bronzer with shimmer was too much. I use this bronzer as my foundation because it evens out my complexion while adding a touch of warmth.It doesn't oxidize throughout the day like my Bobbi Brown bronzer. (NC50)
I honestly am not crazy about this color. I originally brought to compliment lavender whip but it does nothing for it. It looks very plain alone and does nothing on top of other lippies. I'm really regretting this one and hunting down my receipt so I can exchange it for something else. Foolishly fab is far better. More pigmentation and shimmer.
Oh my, I do love this color. Lavender whip is one of my faves (have backup), however this is a nice alternative. It's much deeper and more of a true purple but very wearable. It's a throw on and go color that I don't have to work with like I do with Lavender whip.
This is my favorite MSF. It doesn't give much color to my NC50 skin tone but it makes it look healthier. I'm actually looking to purchase a back up of this. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a natural looking bronzer without shimmer. It has enough sheen to it to keep it from looking flat.
This is my HG gloss. It is my absolute favorite. I love the fact that it is sparkly and not so much glittery like Dazzleglasses. It has a pale pink base with purple and pink sparkles. This lip gloss is not sticky or drying to the lips. Sometimes I wear this with MAC's Pink Fish. It's sheer and understated but still beautiful. I feel the price is high but I don't mind because I get plenty of wear out of this one.(ref:MAC NC50)
I'm not really a nude lip kind of girl but I seem to adore items from the N collection. MA applied this color with Flashmode lustre glass on top and I was sold! 5n is my exact lip color and makes my lips look more uniform and even. I've been wearing this with various dazzleglasses on top. What else can I say, I'm loving this plummy,sheer, brown color.
Makes my nc50 complexion look sooo healthy. Gives my skin such a sheen and glow. I have been wearing this for years and no matter what other bronzer I try, I always always come back to this. Casino doesn't make me look sparkley like most bronzers do. Definitely brown girl friendly. I use my Bobbi Brown face brush for flawless application.
I don't usually wear peachy/pink shades, especially if they are the slightest bit frosty. However for some reason this color works for me. Makes me look just like the name, Cute-ster. I actually didn't realize how good it looked until I saw a pic of myself wearing it. The adorable packaging is a plus! (ref. nc50)
