"Cotton can tend to absorb a lot of your moisture, and silk will not do that, so it keeps your skin nice and hydrated. It's also more gentle on your skin and around your eye area, so it's a must."
"I cannot live without this stuff. I use it for everything. Not only does it make your skin beautiful and hydrated and glowing, but it helps with, I mean, I'll put it on my lips if I'm dry, around my eyes if I don't have eye cream—if you just have this one beauty product with you, then you're in good hands."
"I love this palette so much. It's so beautiful for fall, for spring, for winter. I love that the bronzer isn't too shimmery, so it's nice and matte. You have the two highlighters that are beautiful and glowy and rose gold, and I always love to have a bright blush. If you don't have too much makeup with you, if you have a good blush, you look nice and fresh and awake."
"This is new. It's so light and fresh and it never gets cakey. I give it to all my friends, my clients, and they all say the same thing. You can use a brush. You can use the little applicator sponge that it comes with and just blot any area that you feel a little too shiny in."
"I have quite a few of these; I have a mini one; I have one in my purse; I travel with one. These brushes are great because if you start at the top and go down to the bottom, they take that natural oil from your scalp and blend it all the way down the hair."
