I smelled this in one of my magazines awhile back & I loved the way it smelled. I know perfumes smell different on everybody and on paper so I decided to go to Sephora and test it out. Needless to say I ended up purchasing it; cringing at the price. The smell is floral, has a rose yet powdery smell to it and the staying power is very well. I could smell it hours on end after working. But..months later I find it too overpowering for me and the more I smell it on me the more I think its too strong for me personally. I like more of a fruity floral smell instead & I won't be purchasing again; especially since it is expensive.
This is the best brow pencil i've ever used. It has the convenience of 2 in 1. I have this in medium ash and it makes my brows look very natural and full. You just fill in brows with the liner with small strokes then on the other end is a brush to make it look more natural and even it out. Only problem I had with this is the last one I had the brush end broke off and got stuck in the cap so i couldn't use the brush. luckily, i had another brush that came from another set so i used that. This didn't happen to the one i have now because i'm more careful with it. i will continue to still purchase this though because its the only one i trust to give my brows a perfect arch UPDATE-9/28/2012 I've had a problem lately with the lead/liner falling out and it's a pain to put back into it. Not sure if this is just me, but I'm not happy about that since I'm paying 20+ dollars for an eyebrow pencil. I have since switched to maybelline brow retractable pencil & I'm loving it just as much. However I wish it had the spooly at the end like this one instead of the comb. I just can't see spending that much money when the product keeps falling out.
Lip Treatments -Sally Hansen - Overnight Lip Recovery

I have had this for a long time. A little goes a long way with this for sure. I apply this before bed time & when I wake up I can feel the difference on my lips. They are soft when I wake up and not dry at all. I'm considering even wearing this during the day because I love how it looks after you put it on. Tube is easy and convenient also. Will be purchasing again soon.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
misslu990 2/7/2012 9:24:00 PM
I originally got this at sephora in a 500 pt gift set. Loved it so I bought the full size version. My eyeshadows last a long time with this & never any creases. plus a little goes a long way AND the tube lasts for a VERY long time.
I liked the smell of this because I like fruity smells but idk i'm in between liking it and thinking it's "ok". I have repurchased this before because my bf likes it, but idt i would repurchase this again. I'm sure there are better chapsticks out there. This is natural, but not entirely "natural" since it still contains royal jelly. I'm a chapstick freak i always have to have it on me, so it looks like im still on the search for my HG of chapsticks.
I was using clinique's eye make up remover before I tried this. I bought this online so when it came to my door step I decided to give it a try. WOW. This is so soothing & it doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes at all. Needless to say I stopped using cliniques. But once I run out of this I'll finish clinique up & repurchase this klorane one. I can't rave enough about how this feels when you swipe it across your eye. Works great. ---EDIT---THIS DID NOT WORK WELL AT TAKING OFF EYE MAKE UP WHEN I WORE WATERPROOF MASCARA. OTHER THAN THAT, IT WORKS JUST FINE.
I love this sharpener. It comes with two different sizes so you can sharpen your regular [smaller size] eyeliners and larger jumbo pencils all using just one sharpener. I lost my first one & went out right away to get another. The only problem I have sometimes is getting the eyeliner shavings out because the plastic part will fall off if you don't hold onto it. [those who have this will understand what I mean.] All in all, I love it either way.
Fragrances -Pacifica - Hawaiian Ruby Guava Solid Perfume
misslu990 2/1/2012 3:39:00 PM
I love the smell of this solid perfume. I bought this because I love how convenient it is to use through out the day. I can throw it in my purse and pull the tin out whenever I need to. It's very compact and the smell is fruity and sweet. I dab some on my wrists, behind my ears and run it through my hair and my hair smells so good. I will be buying this again. The tin has lasted me a long time. Only reason I gave it a 4 is because it doesn't last very long, but I guess that's what you get for it being a solid perfume and the ones that do smell all day most of them are way too strong and smell horrible.
I love the smell of this perfume! I have worn it for years. I wore it for awhile & then for some reason I stopped seeing it in the hollister store so I'm not sure if they had d/c'd it at one point? But when I started wearing it again I found it so idk. It has a musky yet feminine smell to it. Very clean. The only problem [and reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5] I have with it is that it doesn't last long. *Update oct 2012- I've heard it's d/c but I've also heard its just a re call of this..seriously?? Why do companies always do this?? Although this happened a couple years ago, hopefully it's just a recall on the dumb atomizer bottle, I always buy the smaller one for that reason. And amazon is selling it at ridiculous prices. So is some sellers on eBay.
I bought this because I didn't like bm foundation. I went into sephora and a sa helped me pick out the color real sand which suits my skin tone exactly. At first I thought it was too light, but she told me and also I had read on some reviews on sephora that the color oxidizes a little and gets a little darker after 15-30 min. [depends on how oily your face is]. I loved the finish also because it made my skin flawless, however, I broke out whenever I would wear this foundation. I agree with the person below me about the bismuth oxy cause thats the reason I broke out from bm. Thankfully I switched over to a better mineral foundation from sally bs. I'll only use this foundation now when I'm going out to a party and looking for more coverage. I wouldn't buy this again though. I'm sure this would be perfect for someone who doesn't break out from wearing it, but for me, its a miss. UPDATE: 8/31/12 ***tried this out last Saturday and wore it up to thurs because I thought I would give it a try again and this broke me out so BADLY. Now I'm trying to get my skin back to normal. This caused very painful cysts on my chin and two on my forehead. This foundation is not worth it for me. It's going in the trash!
Cleansers -Ponds - Original All Day Clean with Vitamin E
misslu990 1/26/2012 11:01:00 PM
These wipes take off all my make up even after I use eye make up remover I'll swipe these wipes over my eyes to get the rest of it off. They don't irritate my sensitive eyes either which is a plus. I like the smell too. I always use these before I wash my face with cleanser. Bought these at Target in a 3 pack. Two full size and one travel packet. Definitely would buy these again.
This is my favorite blush! It looks very natural on my skin and gives me a nice flush. Has a little glitter to it and I love the blush especially after my face gets a little oily through out the day and surprisingly this blush looks even better like that. I like the packaging and I prefer my sephora blush brush over the brush it comes with but i've used the brush it comes with before and it works good. Just be sure to blend so it's not streaky. This blush smells so good too! And it's lasted me forever.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - 080 Strawberry Shortcake
misslu990 1/25/2012 5:41:00 PM
There was only a couple different ones at my local target and this was the one i ended up buying. I like that you can see out the top of the tube to get a better view of the color. It looked like a pretty color so I bought it and tried it on. I loved the color, its a sheer yet buildable pink. I don't think of this as moisturizing. The look of it when I put it on was creamy yet it had a little shine to it like a lip gloss. The only problem was that it didn't last long and my lips were dry after it had worn off. Next time i'm going to apply chapstick before.
