Difficult to pick a color
I have this in Nolita (cool pink) and Debue (peach). These do leave a nice stain when the surface color wears off. The lighter stain looks better than when first applied. I like the sweet vanilla scent and very smooth feel. But it is difficult to choose a color as the vincent longo website swatches aren't that accurate nor are other sites; and I tried to google images but not much out there on these as these don't seem to be popular products like other high end items. I thought Debue would be a light peach toned nude/beige but it's just pure peach which is not my color.

Feels good but not for me
I received a sample and won't be purchasing. It feels smooth and light going on but burns the skin around my eyes; I believe it's caused by the chemical sunscreen(s). I also normally wear spf much higher than spf 15. And I like my moisturizer and sunscreen to be two separate products because I feel each one separately will work better than a two-in-one product.

Natural not lush lashes
This one didn't do it for me. I like the idea of a built in serum to condition and grow lashes but I won't be using this again. I only got natural defined lashes and it started to clump on the second coat even though the brush felt smooth gliding through the lashes. After the mascara dried I used my Japonesque mini curler and my lashes wouldn't really curl with this mascara.

Does not work as advertised
Description states can be used by even the dryest skin types. Whether my skin is dry or normal/combo this powder goes on dry and makes my skin look flakey even after I have moisturized. Good for full coverage.

Good Lotion But Not Firming
I used this for several weeks straight, going through two bottles of it, and I did not notice any anti-aging effects; maybe I don't need it. It is light with somewhat of a strong herbal scent that lingers but it did not absorb completely on my dry skin so it felt a little sticky, but it is hydrating. It only absorbed overnight, so it takes several hours to absorb completely - not how I like my lotion. I like the vegan, natural ingredients. What's not so healthy is there is coloring added. Ingredients include caffeine, shea butter, vitamins, algae, peptide, plant extracts and aloe. Definitely overpriced product.

unique - unlike anything I've ever used
I use 3-4 pumps for my face and once rubbed on skin it immediately foams. The feeling of bubbles forming and popping just feels fun. I wipe with a wet wash cloth after 5 minutes and my skin feels clean and fresh and looks glowing. It's a 5 minute facial in a bottle.

I have Catwalk Collection and Spun Sugar Edition
They are mirrored compact with two tiers; the bottom tray slides out. Catwalk has satin bronze, black with silver microglitter, satin taupe brown, shimmery golden kiwi green, satin light peach, satin taupe, satin taupe-y light pink and champagne beige with microglitter eyeshadows. I don't remember any glitter showing up when I used this, they all fall out when I apply them. The eyshadows are wearable colors for smokey and natural eye looks. The bottom tray has a pinky peach blush with gold sparkles. Sparkles did not adhere to my skin and the blush is too light even on my light complexion; I had to layer serveral times just for a hint of color. The lip colors are pretty but not long lasting. They are a sheer hot pink, rose, nude and shimmery champagne nude with lots of glitter. Spun Sugar has shimmery light gold, satin golden tan copper, shimmery silver, satin light grey, satin light yellow, shimmery dark brown, satin medium grey, sparkly black eyeshadows. There's also a shimmery champagne hightlighter, a medium shimmery brown bronzer and sheer glitter gold gloss. Unlike NARS and Smashbox eyeshadows, these have a lot of fall out, even on the mirror.

Did not really work for me
I've always had really dry lips and upon application this felt like liquid vaseline - smooth and glossy. But this lip treatment is not very long lasting. Most of it wore off after about two hours and my lips felt a little flaky.
