This bronzer has the perfect amount of shimmer so my face looks matte but still has that *out in the sun* glow. The powder is a beautiful mocha color that blends with my skin easily and never looks like a dirt streak! I adore the packaging on all of NARS products and the giant mirror in the compact is awesome for touch ups on the go. This is a little pricey but definitely worth it because you get a lot of high quality product. This pan is going to last me ages!

Right away I love the packaging of NARS products. You really either love it or hate it; I do not mind it because I always keep my make up *super* clean so nothing sticks to my products. I have this in Orgasm and it is more shimmery and pinky than the powder blush version in my opinion. The first swipe of this formula gives you lots of shine and glow-- about double the amount of the powder. It also gives you way more pigment than the powder blush. The formula has a pleasant scent and is easy to blend and build color; but a little goes a long way. VERY expensive for the amount of product you get though. I might not buy this once the ones from my Sephora sets run out because of the price even though I enjoy using it. :[

Funky Scented Rich Cream
I have to agree with everyone else that this cream has a very strange scent to it. When I first touched it I thought that I was going to break out because the cream feels greasy even on your finger tips. Once applied to the skin the cream instantly settles in to the skin. It does not leave behind an oily residue either. The smell does seem to linger on my skin, however. It reminds me of sun screen that is starting to go bad. I used this cream only on the drier parts of my face and VERY sparingly a little goes quite a long ways. I did not break out from this product either and I have oily & acne prone skin. I find this cream very overpriced & I do not like the packaging very much. It is cute looking but I do not like having to stick my fingers in my face creams. Definitely not a fan of all the parabens either.

This cleanser will definitely make your face feel utterly clean! No make up or oil will survive this formula. I really like the packaging it is very chic looking and dispenses product easily. It has a light, non cloying fragrance to it. Very high foaming but not too sudsy. I find this cleanser strips me of my oils a little too much though and I get an oily t-zone thru out the day with this. You get a decent amount of product for the price but it contains way too many parabens and harsh ingredients like cinnamon oil for me. I prefer a creamier face wash otherwise my skin turns into an oil slick by the end of the day so I probably will not purchase this cleanser.

I Love Argan Oil
The packaging on this product is fantastic. The dropper makes for very precise application and makes it practically impossible to dispense the wrong amount of product. The oil must be stored in glass otherwise it will eventually eat thru plastic. The amber color protects the oil from light; which will degrade the oil slowly. The oil itself is quite emollient and can be used for a number of things. I personally love to use it in my hair for incredible shine and silkiness. Now my only complaint about this is the price! Simply outrageous. You can get argan oil much cheaper from different companies. I got a 2oz amber bottle on the internet for around $20 and the quality is just as good as this brand.

I love this range of body washes! They come in very chic bottles and you get a decent amount of product for the slightly high price tag. It is worth it though once you see how many scents there are to choose from! And I think every single one I have tried has not disappointed. I really love the mandarin mango especially if you layer it with the lotion the scent really lasts and is so refreshing. I also really enjoy the seasonal scents such as creamy pumpkin. I am ALWAYS coming back to B&B for my soaps and lotions!

Good for the Price
I really love the packaging on this product. The squeeze tube makes it easy to dispense the perfect amount of foundation. The foundation is light weight but has moderate coverage on discoloration and dark circles. It has a decent range of skin stones to choose from for a drug store brand. This foundation lasted thru the night on me but I did not do anything too difficult so it might not stick around if you get too hot or sweaty. Definitely worth the price if you are a drug store gal! My only complaint is that it does contain parfum, but that usually does not bother my skin and I actually like the scent. I might repurchase this again but I love to keep trying out new foundations.

NARS has the best sets for the money. My favorite part about this company is the bold colors and this set does not let down. The orgasm multiple stick is a beautiful color very shimmery and great for highlighting or using before powder blush for extra staying power and color pay off. The soft pencil feels great when you use it the formula just glides across your skin and never tugs or feels uncomfortable. All of the products are from the same color family so your make up looks really nice and natural. Just the perfect amount of shimmer in these to give you a fabulous peachy pink glow. I like the smaller sizes so I can touch up on the go; plus I like showing off the chic packaging. I have been collecting all the NARS sets I can get thru Sephora and recommend them to any NARS junkie like myself!

The colors in this line are simply to die for! I love the pigmentation on these lacquers as well. The packaging is super chic; like all NARS products. I do detest the stickiness sometimes when it is windy out but the color selection makes the purchase totally worth it! A little pricey and I do wish it came with a brush but I have tons of mini-brushes at home so not too big of a deal. Definitely want to get some more colors soon!

Daphne is a deeply pigmented matte purple shadow. The color is bold and dark but still quite wearable. I love to use it wet to line my eyes; it really makes my brown peepers POP! The packaging is fabulous I love that it comes with a decent sized mirror and is made with the famous rubber material. The colors in this line do not crease [but I use a primer] and there are so many bright pigments to choose from! I love to layer this color with the Hollywoodland soft shadow pencil the gold makes this color really stand out and look unique. I will definitely be getting some more colors from this line soon! :]
