This is a lovely rose-based scent that is subtle, and light, and definitely not "old lady" rose smelling. I normally don't like rose pefumes, but for some reason I like this one. It has something fresh about it, and it is not overpowering at all. The staying power is not great however.
This blush is fantastic for my skintone. It looks like nothing in the pan, but when you put it on it is really beautiful and subtle. I have never come across anything like it. It borders on a highlighter, but it does have a peachyness to it that gives a nice touch of natural looking color.
This is a heavy, sophisticated scent. In my teens and twenties I probably would have hated this. However, now that I am forty and have spent many years appreciating fresh, light, citrusy scents, I find myself attracted to this powdery, sexy, wintery scent. It reminds me a little of Shalimar, although I really do not like Shalimar at all. I would put this fragrance in the same category with Opium, and Coco. An evening/winter very sultry, exotic kind of perfume.
A clean, powdery floral. I think it's similar to Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. Not my kind of scent, but not bad.

This cream is wonderful. I have three children, one of whom is still in diapers, so I do a lot of handwashing everyday. By the time winter comes, my hands usually look like those of a very old woman. But with this cream, my hands look and feel great. I no longer have dry patches in between my fingers and wrinkly skin. The cream has a good consistency - not too greasy, but doesn't just disappear either.

I just tried this at the store, and didn't like it at all. It smells very cheap, and as others have said, kind of like a car freshener, or drugstore perfume sprays. Yuk!
I also bought this because I learnt that it was Kim K's lipstick and I really like her light pink/nude look on lips. In the tube it looks really pink, but when you put it on it is much more subtle. I also wear the Turkish Delight NARS lipgloss over it, and it is very sexy looking.

I have dry skin so this blush works well for me. I also have a difficult olive complexion that is very hard to get a good natural looking blush for. This one suits me very well, and blends easily. I do not have to tug. A little goes a long way, however, so be careful not to look like a clown!

I starting using these after my last pregnancy left me freckly and blotchy. I really didn't think they would work, but they absolutely did! The blotchy area I had has completely disappeared and freckles faded. It did not irritate my skin at all, and I have very sensitive skin. I would definitely buy these again. They are overly expensive, but if they work, then I think they're worth it.
