As you can see I have many brown spots under my eyes. That's due to all that sun exposure without the proper sun block in my early years. I now religiously apply sun block when I go out. I'm looking for something that can help effectively lighten my sun spots. Does anyone have any good recommendations?

Well the blue is sheer. I used my Stila lip liner in a nude pink shade to line my lips first. California Kissin' turns it slightly mauve pink with hints of pretty subtle silver glitter. On my lips, it is a lovely nude pink colour, very subtle and natural looking. I don't think it makes my teeth any whiter though as the website claims it would.
Overall, I like this lip gloss, I am glad to get it for free. This would go so well with my current love for smokey eyes. Would I buy it again? I'm not sure, I don't ever buy the same lip gloss twice, I love trying out new stuff too much.

This is a single swatch. As you can see, it is a pink coral with fine shimmer. It is quite light in color and I realise that I need to layer it on top of another to bring out the color. When applied it gives a glowly look. My friend who bought it as well says that she spots silver shimmer and it emphasizes her open pores. I do agree with her that it emphasizes open pores. I love the slight fragrance in this powder though.
On this swatch, I layered Coralista over Becca Beach Tint in Peach on the right side. It looks darker and more pigmented now. I read on the website that I could use Posietint under it for long lasting wear. I'll be trying that out to see how different it compares with the above swatch.

I have read rants about the product packaging though. The normal sized version comes with a pump. The major rant is that the bottle pumps out way too much product for one use and thus causes wastage. For 58 USD I would definitely want to make each drop count.
