I bought one of each and am a bit disappointed with these! The taste isn't that great, the smell tends to make me nauseous and the coverage on top of my lips seems to be similar to rubbing Vaseline on top your pucker! YUCK!
I bought the 3.3 oz Eau de Parfum Spray. It's a bit expensive but I only bought it after getting a sample to try and fell in love with the fragrance! This is for the purple bottle/yellow box perfume of hers. The packaging is a bit confusing if you've never bought her perfumes before! Lolita Lempicka is an enchanting and alluring fragrance that gently balances the sweetness of ivy leaves and aniseed with delicate violet and iris root, and finishes with a smooth hint of vanilla and musk. This sensual fragrance is pure, light, and endearing. Notes: Ivy Leaves, Aniseed, Amarena Heart, Violets, Iris Roots, Vetiver, Tonka Bean, Vanilla, Musk. Style: A sensual, romantic, and enchanting fragrance.
A five-way concealer spectrum designed to correct and conceal skin tone irregularities and under-eye circles. Counteract with green for redness and lilac for dullness. The soothing properties of chamomile, and Vitamins E and C provide skin smoothness and comfort. As I get dryer during the autumn/winter...this doesn't work well for me due to its dryness. When my skin has more moisture (i.e. spring/summer) it works just fine. That being said...for it to only work half the year really makes me unhappy. I expected a far better product than normal from all that I've read and heard. This was not received! :(
...An update...I've worked on the application of this and have found a way to use my Coralista!!!! I'm so happy! :) I use this ONLY on the apples of my cheeks...this when blended correctly looks sublime...
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

HATE THIS STUFF! I know many people love this cleanser...I don't!!!! It doesn't work well for me at all and I will never go back!
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Liquid Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Formula
tawnyinthepink 4/19/2009 1:49:00 AM
So I am from the group that tends to say that I LOVE one Neutrogena product above everything else ever....Neutrogena Body Oil, Light Sesame Formula glides on easily to moisturize dry skin. It's so sheer it vanishes into shower-damp skin leaving it soft and silky, with a radiant, healthy glow. No moisturizer can touch this experience! That being said the facial cleanser isn't that bad. Could be better, but I won't complain simply because it's what I carry 1/2 the time I travel the other 1/2 I use La Mer...which sometimes makes my skin too oily ( thus why I take Neutrogena 1/2 the time). If you have oily/combo skin this will work well for you! Dry sky means you would do better with the La Mer or comparable products!
Love this shade...i love many Essie nail products....this is among my favs! :)
Okay, I bought this for me and my sister and we both have been pleased. With the only exception being...me. I am used to using brushes. But I saw the reviews for this and decided to buy us both one to try out. My sister loves this product. I like it, but often go back to what I'm comfortable with...brushes. So, it could just be me with the odd brush infatuation.
I LOVE DHC!!!!!! I have been using this off and on for years! I will admit though that during the winter/fall I DO NOT use this product because my skin tends to be a bit dryer. But for spring/summer, when my skin has more moisture this works like a charm!!!!
I bought this to replace my old eyelash curler. I actually like this a lot! I've bought this for my sisters & mom...they all <3 this curler...hat's many separate ladies that R happy w/this! :)
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin

I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!!!! I used to buy MAC Paint - Bare Canvas for the same kind of effect...but this stuff is even better than MAC!!!!! I just adore this primer!!!!! I know that the 'shimmer' might be a bit off putting for those that don't know how to use this...but if you can figure things out it really doesn't take too much effort to get a FABULOUS effect! :)
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
tawnyinthepink 4/10/2009 7:48:00 PM
I bought the sets of these when they first came out and were in actual sets. Both the night life and the tropical sets (I think that was the names). As for Zero...LOVE IT! I was a bit skeptical because my liners usually have a tendency to smear without cause. I tried these and have been fairly happy. I do still get a bit of smear, but nothing like I have gotten from other brands. So all in all this line is a definite PLUS to my makeup collection.
Okay, first off the Coastal Scents 88 Eyeshadow Palette comes in two variations. One has Matte colors and the other Ultra Shimmer colors (as they say on their site). I bought both because I couldn't resist seeing the difference first hand! The matte color palette is more highly pigmented than the ultra shimmer 88 palette. I'm not in love with these, but they are okay for beginners. If you want to purchase something for the young lady/gentleman just starting to figure out how to apply shadows, this would be a gift that would give her/him the various colors that we all want to play around with without breaking the bank!
I do like this product, but another one to look at is Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin ($17) which combines incredible staying power with a shimmering champagne hue that complements almost any eyeshadow. This two-in-one beauty miracle can be worn alone to give eyes just a hint of tint for when you're in a hurry or in need of that "no makeup" look. When comparing both...they practically do the same thing, but the primer potion holds other color far better! :)
