    I would pair these with neutral eyeshadow, lots of black mascara and a nude pink or peachy lip.

    I’d love to see how rio looks on my nc43 skin as a blush or as a highlighter! Love to try adored too.Beautiful products.

  3. Kayla

    I’d wear a dusting of Gold Deposit over my cheeks.

  4. ana freire

    I would use these on myself and on clients to give them that special, beautiful glow! As a highlighter, blusher, bronzer, and even eyeshadow to make them and myself shine!

  5. Evalyn W

    I’m loving the colors. I’m looking for my wedding day look and I think one of these, paired with a subtle smokey eye, might work really well.

  6. Highlights, highlights everywhere!

  7. Awesome giveaway! I’d use Adored as a highlight and Lust as a blush!

  8. Mika

    I would use the lighter shades to highlight and the peachy pinky shades for blush.

  9. Lisa Brown

    I would wear it all summer. Would look good on the eyes too

  10. I’d wear Rio as a blush. It seems to be a lovely balance of pink with a bit of warmth that would be beautiful at this time of year. Heck, I might even wear it for my daughter’s wedding which is in TWO WEEKS and 2 1/2 days!

  11. Michelle Shuel

    I would wear adored as a cheek highlighter with some winged black eyeliner and a nude lip.

  12. With Gold Deposit, I’d wear it like a shimmery bronzer. I think Soft & Gentle would look great when dusted on the tops of my shoulders if I was wearing a strapless top! Naturally, all of them would look gorgeous as a shimmery highlighter on the cheekbones.
