hg. coral. amazing natural luminous. especially if you are a bit tanned. also feels kind on your skin. very smooth
The colour is really really wonderful when you are tanned, its a deep coral with golden overtones, ive lost my tan now and this isnt really working out for me, its a bit obvious and sparkly so for lighter skintones its not really suitable. this would be 5/5 but it made me break out, not for the sensitive skin
im medium yellow undertones. I use this over BE Faux as a highlighter and a blusher. the coral really works for me, brightens up my skin tone-gives a healthy glow, in agreement with the lady below this is lovely with a coral lippie too. you look like the sun has been on your side. i wont buy it again though because its not wow, and its not that great quality

you have to be so careful in applying this because it is really dark, I have medium skin tone and its fine on me with a light hand but i cant imagine it working on a paler skin tone. Its certainly gives you a tanned look, but it lacks that certain glow i look for in a bronzer. Its not a bad product, it definately does the job but not the wow factor. I wear it for work as its subtle, no shimmer etc. BUT LIGHT HAND LADIES!!! I dont think Bare Escentuals powders are that great quality though so prob wont buy it again - no wow factor, half decent

this is my favourite Dr Hauschka product. i hate tinted moisturisers because my skin is combination and sensitive and prone to breakouts and Im very particular about my moisturisers so usually tinted moisturisers are not right for my skin, So this is great because i can mix it with my HG moisturisers and get the effect of a tinted moisturiser. Healthy lightly bronzed glow, very natural looking, and definately no break outs. you can layer and layer to build up a colour. fantastic for day wear especially in the summer when its hot, because its so lightweight you wont feel like your wearing anything. this a HG for me. I love the smell too.
sharp yet soft clean fresh green. no staying power
big time HG. this actually smells like the mediterranean-reminds me of south of spain and greece, mmmmmmmm warm, lavender, woody, fresh, i cant really do it justice with my description you have to smell it and you'll see. but it smells like the title....
I like this, it smells like a softer more floral version of Ghost EDP. its lovely
its not amazing but it is a HG for me. safe, clean, light, flowery, feminine, powdery. i love it. And the bottle and packaging is so classic, a bit retro i suppose, its just the way perfume is supposed to be.

eeeeeeeeeewwwwwwww. this smells horrid. I really really love the packaging and I always spray it on me in a department store because I want to love it. but it just stinks...i think im gonna change my mind and then i smell it on me again and my face just turns like im gonna throw up. Im serious. rancid, bitter, and strong. yuk.
im really surprised at the negative reviews. I got sick of this but I used to wear this all the time( im even a little ashamed to say, because im embarrassed about the idea of buying in to a celebrity ("J.Lo" )as a brand) but i really like it. its clean and fresh and warm. not too perfumey and overpowering. i think its quite different and a signature scent. Its not one that i can catergorise which I think is a good thing. I remember I first got a sample and I used it and my ex used to luuuuuuuuuuuuuurve it. I bought it as my HG for a while. but Ive moved on as you do. I like it ( but dont tell anyone)
I dont use this particular brand, i buy it from a health food shop-its called, Rio Rosa Mosqueta, no fancy packaging, its just 100% South American rosehip oil. Rosehip oil is my saviour-its restored my skins natural balance, I am prone to breakouts and as a result my skin was lacking its natural elasticity and any sort of vibrancy because of products I was using to combat the spots, they were essentially drying my skin out and making my skin look lacklustre. I also have/had a lot of old acne scars-Rosehip oil treated this too, and just evens out my skin tone. I dont get as many spots as I used to either and my complexion is just better. I love this stuff. Its always always always better to stick to the natural pure alternative.
This is technically not a "good" mascara, it doesn't have any dramatising effects on your lashes, it most certainly is not smudgeproof (not in the first 30 mins anyway) and it is not a lengthener BUT I LOVE IT. for day time its great, its really comfortable and nourshing and gives your lashes a glossy natural dark tint and makes them look wispy. a very very natural look, this is my HG for daywear. if dramatic mascara your thing, then this is definately not for you.
Not a great match colour wise (they only have 3 colours) but you can make it work(ish) with enough blending. Beautiful scent, but it is quite heavy in moisturising ingredients so if you are prone to shiny moments then you will need a powder aswell to counterattack this effect. coverage is medium. Because of the purity of this product, I would love to make it work for me but its not that great because it makes me too shiney. I would buy it again though because its kind on your face, you can tell when you take it off at night you skin looks healthy and no breakouts either.

good quality powder, but the colour range isnt good which is a shame because it has a nice finish, but they just dont have my colour. on the plus side E.A stuff always has great packaging
