Really good stuff. Really good.

For context, my skin is pale with neutral undertones, usually the lightest or second lightest shade. My skin shows every blemish and spider vein as if under a spotlight.

Pros:
* Color: natural, golden brown. No orange.
*Smell: coconut with a slight whiff of dha (97% coconut, 3% dha). Best smelling i've experienced to date (tried …

So finely milled, it's ridiculous. My skin is sooo soft and smooth with this applied. Like satin.

Works perfect on some of my foundations, but others separate and pool in my pores like crazy.
Separated on the l'oreal freshwear (looked like i had a major skin issue lol) but cover girl bb cream is gorgeous.

Oil control is average but not amazing. I blot with …

Loving this mascara. I liked Lash Paradise, but am finding this is way better. The wand is a similar shape, but more slender and managable. I got in black/brown, and will for sure pick up black too. Lashes are volumized, maybe lengthened a bit but i mostly look for volume so that's what i notice most.

Washes off fairly easily, so far I've used micellar water and palmers …

Really like this. Am 38, largeish pores in t zone, some bunny lines (horizontal accross bridge of nose), normal to oily skin with redness/discoloration. I need foundation to even out skin tone.

Bought this on a whim and happy with it. Doesn't break me out, covers well, skin like finish, didn't draw attention to pores or fine lines. Set with light powder then setting spray …

Love the color, packaging and price. This is a brown red that is neutral and so pretty for every day.

My only quibble is the texture is a bit meh and it doesn't smell classy like Chanel does. But guess what...who cares! It's $2! These cons barely count because applying a layer of lip balm or primer underneath neutralizes both these issues.

Oh, and the lipstick …

Nice powder. Am happy with it, and the price is right. I use it with abig fluffy brush to set my foundation. I do use blotting papers in the afternoon, but am fairly oily.

Upon purchasing, i peeled back only enough of the inner protective film to expose 4 or 5 of the holes, then snipped off that peeled off portion of film. Makes it simple to distribute only a bit of powder for …

I am pleasantly surprised. Will repurchase, possibly even buy one for home (my current serum lives at work).
Love the packaging. Have germophobic tendancies, so the pump is excellent.
Product does everything it claims, conditions well. I had sone dry patches and after first application they were soothed, three days later they are gone.
Works well on its own or under other lip …

Ah, St. Tropez. I avoided you for years, thinking I didn't need to splash out the cash. Well, this mousse is not one of life's necessities, but it is a gem of a self tanner. Dang it :P

Applies evenly (with regular tanning mitt on body, tiny mitt on face, foundation brush on hands/feet), doesn't smell much upon application. The color...it is really nice, very natural …
