Fragrance is a personal thing and what smells great on one person can smell like shoe polish on another person. I didnt realize how great this smells on me until people would hug me and say - you smell wonderful!
This is the only fragrance I own that people react this way to. Its a light fragrance on me and once I have applied it, I don't smell it on myself. It very pretty and feminine …

A great blush for dark skintones! (Me: NW45/NC50). This is a frost blush that applies beautifully even if you have less than perfect skin. It does not have large shimmery glittery particles that end up sitting on your skin. The blush is finely milled so blends well when applied. I use my MAC 169 Raquel Welch Contour brush to apply. The brush is super soft and does a great job of blending. The …Read more

This brick red/orange colour is very pigmented with a smooth creamy consistency. It feels very greasy when I apply it to my cheeks. It is sheer and has zero staying power on my skin (Oily, NW45/NC50)
At least I look good leaving the house...but will be reaching for something else to reapply by the time I get to the office. There are better options out there for a great red/orange blush (NARS …

This is a beautiful blush for dark skinned ladies. I am NW45/NC50 with oily skin and this lasts all day on me! You do have to apply with caution as the colour is very intense and you can end up with clown cheeks with just one swipe. This similar to NARS Exhibit A (which I also own) but Devil is more orange and Exhibit A has more red in it. Devil also has a very fine shimmer but it does not show …Read more

I purchased this in the Tan (CJ07) and Nutmeg (CJ08) shades (my skintone is NW45/NC50). This product is available in 9 shades with an additional 4 colour corrector shades so chances are you will find a good match for your skintone. I only use them under my browbone as a highlighter and it works perfectly. This product is smooth but also extremely dry. I can see why people have issues with it! I …Read more

1000 stars for this colour! The beautiful coral colour instantly warms up your complexion. I have owned a few CCBs and I think application is key to really getting the most out of them. I have very oily skin and always worry about how cream based products will look on me. When I apply this CCB with my fingers, it just does not look right. It just sits on top of my skin. My most recent purchase - …Read more

TERRIFIC! I initially bought this thinking I would use it to apply my cream blush but then thought hmmm....let me use it for my foundation instead. Jackpot!!! This brush is fantastic! I had been using my 187 for my foundation but never liked the way it looked. I wear very little foundation but with the 187, it still felt like it was too much. I like to use just a touch of foundation to balance …Read more

Gorgeousness! I was able to get this in a swap and just about squealed with delight when I saw the colour! The images online do not do the true colour of this blush any justice. It looks muddy and more brown online but in real life, the colour is more vibrant and red based. It is an earthy red and very pigmented. The texture and application is smooth (no patchy streaks). For darker skintones (I …Read more

Thanks to a lovely swapper, I was able to get my hands on this. Its a pinky red that looks a bit too sparkly in the pan. Thankfully those sparkles do not transfer when applied! The colour is a soft pink/red on the skin and the shimmer becomes a nice light glow - very flattering on darker skintones (I am NW45/NC50) and very wearable for daytime/work or night.

This is a VERY pigmented blush! On my NW45/NC50 skintone, it shows up the same colour as it does in the pot. RED!
You need a very light hand and a good brush to blend, blend, blend! The colour is beautiful on darker skintones. A great addition to your blush palette if you dont have it.
