Velvety petals of exotic orchid, lily, jasmine and peony are teased with a hint of crimson red raspberry and the gentle texture of pink pepper. The interplay of light and dark woods, weathered teak contrasting with patchouli, adds to the intensity, while hypnotic incense vapours and amber crystals lend a sense of intrigue and allure to this sensuous creation.

Fix+ Rose

An aqua-spritz of vitamins and minerals, infused with a Calm-the-Skin blend of green tea, Chamomile, Cucumber, topped off with the scent of 100% natural rose water. Adds radiance, finishes makeup.

WOW! What a stunning collection. It’s just perfect for spring and romance. I, like many others, was hoping that this collection would mean a re-release of the legendary Mineralized Skin Finish Stereo Rose, but alas she evades us yet again. But all in all this collection is right up my alley with all of the soft purples and plums. Circa Plum pigment is a repromote from the Overrich collection, and I am fortunate enough to have a pressed pan of it. It’s stunning guys, if you missed out before run out and buy this one! I am stupidly excited over the rose-imprinted beauty powders, particularly the violet one. Man, they look pretty.

Bottom line? This collection looks fantastic and I am even more excited for it than I am for Sugarsweet. And that’s saying a lot, because I’m stoked as heck on Sugarsweet.
