I've been hesitant to try this because coconut scents are hit or miss with me, but this one is definitely a hit. Not too strong or overpowering at all, and the formulation sinks into my skin and makes it feel like silk. I was a little afraid because it's for very dry skin and previous experience with the Olive variation of this product left me a teensy bit greasy, but there were no problems here.
Highlighters -Guerlain - Les Meteorites balls powder

I have this in Winter Radiance and have just renewed my love for it. It's far too light for me when summer rolls around, but when I lose my tan in the winter it's the best overall evening product I have. I actually stopped putting on foundation during the past week and just using meteorites followed by a transluscent powder and have been very happy with the results. I'm an NW20/25 and this product has been like a godsend for livening up my skin.
I LOVE the colors in this set. I've tried quite a few stila palettes and this is by far my favorite yet. The colors are a perfect match for my NW25 skin tone and the texture is amazing. The only thing I would love is a mirror in the palette because it's really akward to hold up a MAC palette behind the stila palette when I'm applying it, but other than that I love it. The blush is gorgeous too.
When you wear glasses, especially dark rimmed glasses, it's important to find eyemakeup that makes your eyes stand out. This is the first mascara to make my lashes visible through the lenses. It goes on thick and super dark. It gets a little clumpy like others have said, but a few wand strokes can fix that. It doesn't smudge or flake, and it makes my eyes pop like nothing I've ever seen before. Highly recommended.
I was lemming this for ages before I broke down and bought it and I'm so glad I did! It's a fantastic scent that's not too heavy for daywear, and while most EDTs wear off after a few hours I swear I can still smell it up to eight hours later. The scent is very light and playful. The packaging is fantastic. Love the bottle. So cute!

Received this as part of GWP, and I don't believe I'm ever going back. I tend to be very minimalist around the eyes - a little neutral shadow, some eyeliner on the top lid, and mascara on the top lashes. Since trying this mascara, people have actually commented on the difference. And I'm wearing black rimmed glasses over it all! I will definitely be buying this when it runs out.
