This is a perfect combination of tropical fruits and exotic florals and a tiny bit or eatrthy spice. Reminds me of the sunset. This is really yummy!
I kind of like this gloss. It's a pretty lavendar-pink with a great shimmery shiny finish. The texture, as with all the Wetslicks and Wetslicks Crystals lip glosses, is just a bit sticky. This color did not jump out at me to repurchase even though it was pretty. So I might repurchase and then again I might not.
For those of you who love floral scents but find those feautured in traditional perfumes too heavy, you will love this. This scent has all the loveliness and femininity of a Chanel floral perfume (like Chance), but with the lightness associated with a body spray. Calgon makes excellent quaility products with simple and easy pretty packaging at awesome prices. Love'em all!!!!
Hawaian Ginger has the fragrance of a zingy, sweet, fresh pineapple. It makes me want to go to a spa, beach, or on an island retreat somewhere; (maybe Hawaii!!!) I love this and all the Calgon body sprays I've tried and plan to rebuy them all and to try more.
Everyone says how boring vanilla fragrances are, but I happen to adore them! This one is a really light, fresh, and clean vanilla fragrance that never overpowers. It's great for those days when I'm just going to school or to the market and don't want a really fancy or heavy scent. The packaging is very whimsical and cute: Purple label, dark purple writing, and a picture of a yummy-looking vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting and sprinkles. This super cheap and easy to find and I love it. I would repurchase this and try many more Calgon scents.
Lips -Cover Girl - Continuous Color in Parisian Pink

I really liked this color. It's a nice basic, pretty pink color that has no shine or shimmer to it. The formula is not super moisturizing nor is it that drying either. The only reason why I said that i would not repurchase is that I have many other pink or pinkish lipsticks that i enjoy wearing more. This is a very decent product, so it's worth a shot.

It seems to dissolve my eye makeup with no filmy,oily, or greasy residue. This is excellent quaility at a wonderful price and availability rate. I would definately rebuy this and reccomend this to anyone!!! Did I mention I love this?!!!!!!
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - All Day Lipstick in 'Rosa Rosa'
thefairestlady1012 5/18/2007 4:25:00 PM
This is my mom's favorite lipstick of all-time, and I like this one too. It's a really natural-looking and pretty reddish-peachy-pink. It has incredible staying power and pigment. This color looks flattering on a variety of colorings on the skin, hair, eyes, and makeup styles. I would reccomend this gem to anyone.
This is a very pretty sparkly bright, pale pink. The texture is a tad sticky, but it's great otherwise. It's really nice on my pale skin, but I think it would look pretty on almost any skintone. The price is very reasonable and the packaging, while very basic, is no more than one could need: a simple clear tube with the subbrand name on it and the shade name on the bottom with a wand applicator. I would reccomend this and would probably repurchase, however, I like Neutrogena lip colors better as far as any drugstore brand is concerned. In general a beautiful product.
This color is a member of the "Hard as Nails" family. The color is a really classy and elegant true blue-based cool-toned red. The color reminds me of the shade of red associated with the Hollywood starlets of the 1920s-1960s. This is very pretty and appropriate for just about anytime, anyplace, any outfit, and any makeup style. Love all Sally Hansen regardless of subrand. Their polishes last full-fledged for quite a while especially when you apply a base coat and top coat and multiple color coats. It makes your nails really long, hard, and strong by nourishing them, and comes off relatively easy with a good quailty nail polish remover (Cutex is my fave). I would definately rebuy this color and many more by Sally Hansen
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Deep Clean Facial Cleanser
thefairestlady1012 5/12/2007 5:51:00 PM
Neutrogena's Deep Clean Cleanser is one of the best cleaning and purifing cleansers I've ever had. The formula is a non-foaming gel that does not dry out, break out, or cause irritation to the skin. Oily- acne prone skinned people will especially find this gentle cleanser very useful at cleaning the pores and treating existing acne while preventing new breakouts from appearing, and if they do, this product definately helps with the severity of the acne. My mom loves this cleanser and this review is largely from her perspective although I've tried it and really, really like it. I just prefer the Fresh Foaming Cleanser by Neutrogena and the Almay line of skincare for dry skin formulated with cucumbers. I would really like to try some products by Mario Badescu (mentioned in my Almay skincare line reviews for the cleanser,toner, and moisturizer.
Sally Hansen is the most fantastic line of nail products ever! Excellent quality and affordable. Precious Glow is of the Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color sub-brand and is another clone of Chanel's world famous Vamp. The color is a veru dark, vampy, and sexy blood-red mixed with a little of dark wine, blackberry, and deep plum underones with a tiny bit of deep chocolate and midnight black thrown into the mix. The more coats you apply, the more intense the color and shine. Although, with just one coat, the results and color-payoff are phenominal. I love dark polishes and this ranks as one of my favorites ever. I am also interested to try some of shades of the Salon Nail Lacquer line because they have a wide array of colors from dark and vampy to classically bright to pastel prettiness. In fact, I that sub-brand they have a rich satiny glossy black that is an exact copy of Black Satin by Chanel.
I might repuchase this. This product really highlighted and accentuated the bone structure and contures of my face without making it dry out or breakout. The packaging is small, cute, and user-friendly. You also get a lot of this for the packaging size. It left my face very dewy, glowy, and fresh. . T I find that the best way to make your skin truly fresh and dewy is to use good-quality and nearly-to-all-natural skincare products like those from Mario Badescu and Almay and also to drink plenty of water and to eat heathily and consume things in moderation. This way the great apperance and texture l and overall health of your skin is dependent upon the way you treat and care for it while furthuring the health of your body as a whole I want to try this again. I was using way to much at one time when I tried it before. Great Product
While the skin on my face is extremely combination in its type, the skin on my body is extremely dry and flaky. This is the only unscented body lotion or cream that even begins to heal and relieve this dry and itchy skin. Neutrogena just has great products all-around hair, skincare, makeup, and everything at a very reasonable price. I would certainly repurchase unless and until find something that works even better, which probably won't be for a while (The packaging is a user-friendly pump bottle). Note: The reason why I said unscented is because I have some body butters, creams, and lotions that work better but only go with certain body sprays and perfumes.
Benefit products are very much hit or miss with me. For instance, I love the Highlighter in High Beam, but absolutley hated Bad Gal Lash. This product I would catergorize as another "miss" for me, but it kind of hits the middle of the road. I bought the color, Streakin' which is described as a 'buff nude" on the website. I would have to agree. The packaging is that of just about any ordinary lipgloss, but that's not a bad thing nor an outstanding one either. The color was slightly to orangey for my taste, but certainly would not be for others. It might to be less orangey for those with a tan, olive, bronzed, or dark skintones with warmer undertones than I do. I am very pale with a neutral to cool undertone with a slight rosiness to my cheeks. I was planning to use this overtop Neutrogena's lipstick in Sheer Natural, but Streakin' just turned out to be an unflattering color for me. For going over Sheer Natural, I want to try the Chelsea Girls lip lacquer by NARS because it seems to be more of a peachy-pinky beige rather than an orange -red brown that would suit my skintone better. The formula is just a tad drying to the lips, but worn with a good moisturizing clear gloss or lip conditioner it should be just fine. The smell is not to pleasant; it's kind of like wet paint or nailpolish, however, it is not unbearable and fades upon application.
