Thick and rich, but no light diffusing here!
There is a major PRO to this product: It is very, very thick and has been wonderful for the below freezing days of Winter. My skin was never dry when using this product, it felt very soft, absorbed easily, and made my small wrinkles look less noticeable. But there is a major CON to this product, and why I had to take 4 stars away: The Light diffusers were non-existent and I never saw them. There was no reduction in under eye circles at all. This product claims to "camouflage the look of dark circles and fatigue" but did nothing to do that at all.

Smells so bad!
I could not keep this product long enough on my face to see any effects. I had to wash it twice to get the smell to go away. It smelled rotten and putrid, and was not some thing that I wanted on my face or hands.

Texturizer with shine!
This is not a product that I typically use with straight, long hair. But I got a new hair cut a few weeks ago with some longer layers framing my face... yet, I did not know how to keep them out of my eyes or sleeked back when I was wearing a simple pony tail... here enters Sebastian Professional Microweb Fiber. This is an odd product, and web certainly describes it as it does seem to form webs of product in between your fingers, but this really helped in getting a more even distribution of product on my hair. I was able to keep those long layers out of my face quite well with this product, but what I noticed, and this makes the product great, is that the shine in my hair was amplified where I used it! Many waxes, or other texturizing agents just cut out the shine and make your hair stiff, but this Sebastian Professional Microweb Fiber did not do that at all!

Sleek blowdry style with a mouse for the 21st century!
When I first got this product I was not sure exactly how to use it, as I had not used a mouse like formula since my last perm in the 80s, so I watched the online how-to video from the Sebastian website. This was a helpful tool, and I learned that it was also a heat protecting cream as well as a leave in conditioning product as well as a styling tool! This is where I think the real beauty in this product lies! I was used to crunchy, thick, chemically smelling mouse... but this was an awesome smelling product that left my hair very, very soft! I used it in my towel dried hair to assist with a more every day style than what was shown in the online video... a simple blowdry with a round brush. I have poker straight hair and this product really helped to keep the curl from round brushing my hair... which yes, is normally quite a feat. My hair was left very, very soft and even in the colder, drier air, wearing a sweater and wool coat my hair had no static in it! This is certainly a multiuse product, and Sebastian has managed to update a product that I with straight hair old associated with perms, to a product I can see myself using with my 21st century style!

Amazing drug store deal!!!
These are a great price first of all. Secondly, they come in so many shades there is a color for every preference and skin tone! There is also a nice range of colors in each of 4 major color groups: neutrals, reds, pinks, and purples. There are dark, light, sheer, shiny, sparkly, any thing you can think of, other than matte shades in this line. Thirdly, the packaging is cute! The color of the tubes is nice and makes it easy to find in your purse, which is a major plus in my book! =) This tube of lipstick does not feel like a drugstore brand... it wears well, lasts, moisturizes, smells ok, and overall is a great product!

Nothing special and misleading color names!
I was very disappointed with this product. I thought that the color of the shade would be similar to the same named mascaras. For example, the black pearl mascara was black with silver shimmer... I assumed that the black pearl eye liner would be black with silver shimmer... and it is not... it is just black. Same thing with the ruby shade. I have the mascara and it sparkles with ruby tones... the eyeliner is just a flat brown! There is nothing special about any of these eyeliners, and the names are very misleading! The application, length of wear, smudge-ability, and ability to bring out the color of my eyes was nothing special at all! I would have returned them if I could have. Save your money and get an eye liner from Urban Decay!

Sophisticated, not old...
While some rose scented perfumes remind me of older ladies, this one does not. Parisienne does not scream roses either... they are the primary scent in the perfurme, yet there is more to this with layers of sandalwood. The discription states that there are berries in this purfume, but I don't smell that on my skin. The rose scent also smells real and not fake like cheaper perfumes or home frangrences often do. I could see myself wearing this to one of my work events because it is not obtrusive, yet I would not wear it out on a date because it does not feel like a sexy scent to me.

Sugar Babe Sugar Scrub
This is another great smelling product from Lush!!! I would suggest not taking this whole product into the shower with you, but to cut off a small portion (1/6th) and use that for your whole body. This is not for those who want a gentle scrub, but for those who really want to get that dead skin off! It works great at buffing and removing those dead skin cells away. There is also some coconut oil to soften the skin, too, but this oil will cause acne, so I would not suggest using this on your face, chest, or any other area which you get breakouts.

I have brown hair, brown eyes, and a light olive skin tone. I bought these cheek stains recently in Blushing Bride and Berrylicious. The Blushing Bride is more of a gel consistency and the Berrylicious is more of a cream. Both apply very well, and there is time to properly spread the color before it sets. I first put on my prescription acne medication, my SPF, then this cheek stain, Bare Minerals foundation, and finally Mineral Powder. This is one of the only blushes that will last all day with mineral foundations and with a 12 hour work day!!! Both smell great, will last a long time, and were worth the purchase!

This Golden Noir is a new shade from Stila. It is a black base with specks of 24 carat gold. This results in a golden black brown look, and not a harsh black. These are small specks of gold, which are very subtle on your eyes, not a large chunky glitter. The application is easy with the right brush (I like the new set from Bare Minerals with the magnetic brush heads). It will last all day, and does not irritate the eyes.
