This scent may be marketed to men, but I’m betting more than a few women will love wearing it themselves. It smells like a fresh gin and tonic with lime. It then dries down with a woody base. The ideal spring/summer scent.

    “No Bleeding Lips” is an excellent product. Have been using this product for the last couple of months. The other products are from leaders in the field – a definite must try.

    The pastel pallate colors remind me of spring. They are very soft and beautiful. I have a hard time making my shadow blend together. Maybe something like this would help with color and highlighter together. I hope I win! Would have fun with this. Thank you

    I love the fuchsia lip color. One of my favorite. I love the bright pinks, always get comments on them, I guess these are right for my skin tone. Would love to try this.
