Such a pretty late Spring/early Summer shade of true peach. It's not coral and not overly pink , it's gorgeous on my warm-medium tanned skin, shiny, I can't detect any shimmer, it reminds me of 1960s Bond girls , very chic on the toes, nice pop of colour . Highly recommend.

What a beautiful colour this is, it's like a slightly warmer, more moist version of NARS Blonde Venus, a nude ,yellowish/brown peach with a lovely shine. I am NC25 , very warm-toned and it just wakes my face up beautifully. I tried Bare Again but it was just a bit too brown for me and the SA suggested this colour instead and I am glad she did. A wonderful summer colour that goes well with …Read more

Why, oh why do I ever buy any lipstick other than NARS? All the lipsticks in my rotation are NARS, all the ones I have used up and had to dig out the last morsel of colour are NARS. Pigalle will be no exception, a beautiful warm pinkish brown that lights up my whole face, it's what I wanted all the MAC pinks I have tried to be , so if you are warm toned and think pinks always turn blue on …Read more

Thank you MUA reviewers , without you I would never have even given this a second look, on my very warm skin, NC25 , pink always looks atrocious either blue or purple and washes me out, but I really wanted a nice, pretty pink for Christmas parties, getting too old to wear bright or very dark colours in the winter, so I tried this and it is glorious on me, lights up my whole face. It does for me …Read more

I think this is only available either online at HSN or on television , which is a shame as it is the best primer I have ever used. It lasts forever and comes in a 1.7fl. oz bottle. It really makes your make-up look gorgeous, I am an actress and always use this on-camera or on-stage, you will have to pry this Prai from my cold dead hand. Highly recommend.

Gorgeous colour. I am a very warm , green-eyed reddish blonde and this is perfection on me. Fresh had a colour similar to this years ago that I loved, I think it was Renaissance something or other . This is a beautiful orange/red , not bright so much as saturated with subtle golden flecks, great one to wear with no other make-up just wakes up your whole face. Probably too warm if you are a …Read more

I had a beautiful greyish-purple pencil from Fresh which I bought about 7 years ago , it was called Tulip and it was wonderful, I finally sharpened it down to the nub and set off in search of a replacement. Street Cool Shadestick is the closer I have come so far, it is the same colour but, obviously, a different format. I have only worn it once and I love it, easy to apply, stays really well, I …Read more

The single best brow pencil I have ever used. I was using MAC but colour-wise and texture this is so much better. I have very warm , light olive skin but ashy blonde brows and I have a very dfficult time finding one that isn't too reddish or gold, but this is truly a light ash blonde and is perfect. The MA from Anastasia did my brows n this in the store and they looked amazing, it somehow …Read more

I love this foundation, I have very warm toned light olive/golden skin and this , in NC 25 is perfection. I regularly use Tarte TM in Agent 06 , which I love for a daily nearly make-up free look, but Studio Sculpt even though it is medium to full coverage still manages to look like skin! Love the gel formula, it is creamy but not too liquidy, stays on really well, I have combo classic skin with a …Read more

I love this pinkish/brown , I am very warm toned and most pinks are just awful on me, either too blue or too grey or they end up fuschia , but this is really lovely , warms up my face and mkes my eyes pop. If you think you can't wear pink, give this one a try, it has just enough warm brown to it that it might work
