I love this primer. It does take a little bit of getting used to at first. The primer comes out very thick and you do need to warm it up between hands. You do not need much of it though, as a little goes a long way. This product was voted an In Style Magazine 2014 Beauty Best Buy

 I am very happy with this foundation. it has great coverage, sheer to medium if you want or even medium to full if you need it. The coverage is buildable. I like that it has such great SPF coverage and that it is mineral based. The foundation goes on and blends like a dream. It is definitely a must have product.  

I adore this illuminator. It goes on light enough that it gives a glow but not too heavy that you look like you are wearing too much. it gives the perfect amount of glow to the face. This makeup artist favorite effortlessly diffuses imperfections while providing subtle illumination for the look of healthy, beautiful skin. This lightweight essential will end up becoming a daily stable in your beauty routine. It evens out skint tone to minimize appearance of pigmentation. Add subtle luminosity to eyes, cheeks or nose. Use on the face, eyes or décolleté. It helps fight off free radical damage. The illuminator is rich in pearl powder, which is rich in amino acids and minerals to help skin appear radiant and smooth. This diffuser is truly unique, it an be used to lighten redness on hands, neck, chest and face. Works as a traditional highlighter along bridge of nose or under eye brows. A Red Carpet favorite to give skin a healthy, soft diffused glow.


This product is a cross between a blush and a highlighter. It enhanced any complexion, providing an effortless radiant glow. It gives long-lasting color for extended wear. This provides an instant, radiant, natural glow. Pearl powder, is rich in amino acids and minerals to help skin appear radiant and smooth. Iron Oxides provide pigment and vivid color. Mica provides luminosity and a soft-focus effect. Sweep over cheeks, nose, forehead or decolletage to help achieve the perfect look. Remember, an illuminator is not a foundation, so do not cover your whole face with it. It blendable and should be applied on top of foundation, blush or bronzer.



With this palette you can look fresh-faced in no time flat. This multi-purpose palette features five beautiful neutrals that flatter any skin tone. From daytime natural to nighttime drama, this collection of rosy pinks and warm browns enhances the face, eyes lips and cheeks with ease. It acts as a multi-purpose palette for the entire face. It can bronze, contour, conceal and enhance. The palette is portable or on-the-go beauty. It even includes an all purpose brush. Vitamins A and E nourish the skin and help fight against free radicals.
 
These are the shade descriptions for the shadows in the palette:

These items are all lovely items that can be worn for summer. My favorite is the Pressed Mineral Illuminator/Diffuser in Chamapgne Kiss. It is gorgeous on. Makes skin have the most beautiful light, ethereal glow. This is a must have product.All of the others  are great products too. Colorescience is a great line. Wonderful mineral makeup line!
