I'm NC25 and this polish is a bright, hot pink on me. Not too cool/fuschia as most hot pinks are. A fun summer pedicure color that I alternate with Cajun Shrimp. I love OPI polish for the quality, although Charged Up Cherry is slightly thicker than Cajun Shrimp and takes longer to dry. I haven't had any problems with streaking, which may be because I was lucky enough to find a bottle without the pro-wide brush.
Grab this perfect, Playmate pink while you can.
Notes: Sparkling Raspberry, Coconut Milk and Amber. This LE fragrance smells nothing like the pretty, but generic, Heavenly. Enchanted is rich and sexy, heavy on the amber. The coconut milk smells sophisticated and soft, not overly sweet. The raspberry note smells more like cranberry to me, or possibly a subtle true raspberry scent, not at all artifical. Heavenly Enchanted is doing well in sales and I believe VS will be making a mistake if they don't make this fragrance permanent. I rated this fragrance 4 instead of 5 because, although it's not listed, I detect a cedar note, which I'm not a fan of. For those looking for a comparison, Enchanted smells somewhat like Hillary Duff With Love, minus the animal testing.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Lip Gloss In Tropicool
WhereAmI 1/23/2009 7:37:00 PM
A bright peachy-pink gloss, which would probably work for most skintones. More pigmented than most Beauty Rush glosses and somewhat longer-lasting. A great color for warm weather or a fun night out.
In the bottle, Anniversary Gala is Barbie pink with greenish-gold shimmer. Applied, it's very sheer, too sheer, even with three coats. But over Revlon's Sheer Pink (semi-opaque, pale, pink), AG is Wow! This is a great combo - pink, iridescent and girly, girly, girly!
Plushglasses are hands down my favorite lipglass formula. I have quite a few, but my favorites are Wildly Lush, Angel Cream, Big Baby and, of course, Nice Buzz. Nice Buzz is a sexy, golden-champagne that makes my lips look full! My only complaint with the Plushglass formula is the awful smell. I like the smell of Lipglass, but Plushglasses smell like a cheap vanilla-spice candle, yuk.
I have both Tahiti and Sedona Shimmering Bronzers. Sedona is a pale, neutral, champagne, a perfect highlighter color. Tahiti has more color, bronzy with warm pink tones. Other than the shimmer, Tahiti is a really natural-looking color on my NC20-25 skin. But, for me, the shimmer gives these bronzers extra oomph!
This is the most perfect, shimmery, baby pink blush.
*disclaimer* I looove shimmer! This shimmery(!), champagne highlighter is marketed as a bronzer, but will be too light for most skintones. Instead, try a light dusting over your regular bronzer to reveal a sexy glow! This color is so neutral, it's also great for toning down too-orange blushes or bronzers. So versatile.
Select Cover-Up sticks to blemishes like glue, never slides off, never needs a touch-up. Super-hygienic tube, which is so important when dealing with blemishes.
Plushglasses are hands down my favorite lipglass formula. I have quite a few, but my favorites are Wildly Lush, Angel Cream, Nice Buzz and, of course, Big Baby. Big Baby is a sexy, peachy-nude with pink iridescence. So pretty. My only complaint with the Plushglass formula is the awful smell. I like the smell of Lipglass, but Plushglasses smell like a cheap vanilla-spice candle, yuk.
A true ylbb color that perks up my face. Great for days I don't want a smoky-eyed, pale-lipped look. I wear this color when I want to look polished.
Lip Liners -Clinique - Quickliner for lips Soft Rose

Five for the product, one for the packaging. The pencil twists up, but doesn't twist down. In addition, all my quickliner caps crack. I wouldn't put up with this if this color weren't so perfect with my pink lipsticks and glosses. Really, really natural looking liner.

Great product. I have very sensitive-allergic skin and after using this product after the Detoxifying Nutri-Cleanser once, I woke up with calmer, smoother skin and smaller pores! I'm sure it's all the good for you ingredients. I rated this four instead of a five because the serum is packaged in a clear bottle. It should be in a dark or opaque bottle to protect the ingredients from being exposed to light. I've been keeping the serum in its box to remedy this.

Great product. This is a creamy cleanser that lathers slightly. It also smells very yummy! I have very sensitive-allergic skin and even though this is fragranced, I woke up with calmer, smoother skin and smaller pores after using this cleanser and the Nutri-Pro Night Serum once! I'm sure it's all the good for you ingredients.
