I bought this after much debate because blues are not my favorite shadows. After trying it I am hooked! This is a perfect alternative to a black or gray smoky eye! The color is a beautiful smoky deep denim that is bright enough to be noticed without being over the top. My only complaint is this color fades quickly even with primer. The color itself is lovely and I will get it again!
I really like the scent of this! I didn't like the SFF Massage bar which supposedly has the same scent, but I can handle Yummy. But the consistency...it is like getting in the shower under the water and grabbing a bottle of water to wash off with. Its just not gel enough for me. Even with a cream wash you usually don't have a product this watery. Maybe they should scrap this and put this scent in a soap bar.
I like this! My HG primer is UDPP, but this is becoming my second fave. My lids are not oily. When I put this on my shadow lasts through the workday well into the early evening without creasing. Price is nice as well. It only comes in two shades though, so that might be a problem for some. I also like the fact that even though this is a tinted product it is natural - it didn't turn white on my lids like the Kat Von D eyeshadow primer did. This also does help with concealing around the eye area. I would get this again.

This is the perfect shower gel for fall of the year! I got this for $11.00 at Sephora's Philosophy Christmas in July sale. This scent is so spot on that one sniff made me want to see the leaves changing and make cider. This is one I would recommend for pumpkin lovers or people who love the crisp days of autumn. Lovely!
At first I didn't like this. The pan is a very unremarkable color. When I put it on the first time I put a tiny bit on and felt it didn't show up. I added more and felt it looked muddy. The next time I tried it I spent a little more time blending it in and the result is a very natural peachy contour. While this will never surpass Deep Throat as my favorite Nars blush, it may become my second favorite. It is the perfect workday blush or a great choice anytime you want a subtle look. Same high pigmentation and lasting power as all Nars blushes. I don't think this would work on really dark skintones, but its nice on light to medium skin. Glad I tried it!

I agree with spykitty - this set my skin on fire! My skin is not sensitive yet immediately after using this my face started to burn like crazy and turned bright red in spots. This is a product I will not recommend or repurchase.
If you want a great bubble bath, Avon's line is the best. It surpasses the more expensive brands in quality giving you tons of bubbles. You can usually find huge 24 fl oz bottles for very cheap at regular price - and they are often on sale. My only complaint is they usually bring seasonal scents out once and they rarely change their core line. So if you love a seasonal one and you do use it up, you are not likely to get it again. They made one years ago that was a melon one, it was divine! I loved the smell so much I would put a small amount in my hair and rinse. My hair smelled delightful and it never damaged it. These do not leave a ring in the tub. There is a reason this stuff is popular!
I really had high hopes for this! The scent itself is wonderful! It is fruity without being a common scent. However the fragrance lasts less than 2 hours. I don't like to constantly reapply so I will not purchase again in solid form. I do want to try this scent in the spray.
I love this in the shade everyone else seems to hate - Nashville! On me it is a perfect high shine nude that lasts hours and hours! My tube leaks a bit and that is my only complaint. I love the Minty flavor! Very happy with my tube of this gloss!
So far I really like this for a nude lip look! Pairs perfectly with smoky eyes or is great for a natural but polished look. Lasts quite awhile for a lipgloss! The price is steep for a lipgloss, but I think Nars glosses are pretty good quality for the money. My lips are naturally a light color so I doubt this gloss would give the desired look on someone whose lips have a natural dark pigment to them.
This is becoming my go to fragrance! It is hard to find a scent that manages to be sexy and clean at the same time, but this gets that balance perfectly! It isn't too heavy for work, isn't too basic for a night out. I really don't think they could improve on this one! Love it!

This product is worthy of the raves! This lasted all day - without primer! I like the packaging and the price is a little steep but the quality is great and you get a generous amount. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the lightest shade is a bit too shimmery for my taste, but oh well. Would get this again!
This product is okay for me. I only use it when my skin is really dry or after some heavy exfoliation. But this product is an HG for my mom! She always has had very dry, highly sensitive skin. She was starting to get eczema on her elbows and within a few uses of this, it was almost all gone except for a little redness. It didn't further irritate her already sensitive skin. I took off a lippie for the price which I think is a little steep. This is worth a try for dry, sensitive skin types. Worked wonders for Mom!

This is my HG brown liner! I have been buying this since my early teen years and I still love it! It is my go-to for everyday wear. I have sensitive eyes and this never irritates my eyes! The line size of the pencil is perfect, you don't have to tug at your eyes as the application is always smooth and it has great lasting power! They often have these on sell, but they are well worth full price. Love this product and will be a loyal user as long as they sell it!
This is a great product! I don't have really dry skin, but I like to stay moisturized. I am loyal to Jergens Ultra Healing and am also impressed with this as well. I am a fan of scented lotions during the day, so these two lotions are what I use at night before bed. I have no trouble with this absorbing into my skin and the smell is very faint. Great price for the size. Will be keeping this on hand!
