If you go to their website, you will seen how gorgeous their packaging and even shapes of the lipsticks, etc are.

I am loving this color. It packs just the perfect amount of color and shimmer. It doesn't have too much shimmer or glitter to it and is a perfect color for summer, which unfortunately is coming to an end way too soon. I didn't feel this was overly sticky. I agree the scent/flavor is very light. I could taste the strawberry more than the vanilla. If you are sensitive to smells/tastes in cosmetic products, I don't think this will irritate you. This applied nicely. The brush was a litle stiff when I first removed it from the bottle, but it loosened up quickly. Overall, I'm really loving this gloss. What do you think?
Face Color G
When I opened this adorable little compact I couldn't believe how sweet the color inside was. This color is Faune (003)- a deep rose to create elegant contours. The fall collection of face colors were inspired by the warm tones of a midsummer sky. The blushes are for contouring cheeks and providing a natural, enchanting glow. There are 3 colors available- Nymph, Nubile, and Fawn. I love the raised flower print that is inside the compact. I also love the soft shimmer found in the product.
Here is a swatch of the color on my hand.
I found this color to be very creamy but in a powder form. I used a fluffy brush as my method of application and I did experience a little bit of fallout. It was creamy enough that I was able to easly stick my finger in the compact and swipe the color on my hand to swatch. Some powder formulas are very hard to apply in that way, but not this one. The formula is very smooth and hydrating.
Wondering what the beauty ingredients and benefits are?
-Orange Flower Water- moisturizer
-White Lily Extract- moisturizer and prevents skin irritation
-Jojoba Oil- Emollient
-Sodium Hyaluronate- Moisturizer
-Rosemary Leaf Extract- Emollient
I loved the way the color translated to my cheeks. As you can see, it is subtle on my cheeks but does give me a little bit of warmth. I could have easily built it up heavier and deeper on my cheeks like the look that is so popular this fall. A very versatile face color, soft shimmer, long lasting, and in the cutest ever packaging....absolutely can't go wrong with this!
These face colors run at $24 and are available at beautyhabit.com.
