All the NYX blushes are great. Lightly shimmery, great colors, highly pigmented. They last a long time, apply easily, and blend well. Priced very well. I love NYX products!
This smells delicious. It's very, very sweet smelling, but just smells so enchantingly delicious that I couldn't help smelling my fragrance card I picked up at the mall all day. After a day of sitting on my coffee table, the fragrance was still there and radiating through the room. This perfume definitely fills a room and isn't a perfume that sits close to the skin, so it's a long lasting, strong fragrance. It smells lovely. I picked up a bottle. It's more expensive than a lot of other perfumes and it's harder to find a cheaper bottle on Amazon or cheaper online retailers, but I think it's worth it. Lasts a very long time and smells delicious.
The lotion is nice. It's not super thick, but not super thin and watery, so the lotion consistency is just right. It's hydrating and nice. The scent is exactly the same as the EDP version of the perfume, which is excellent. You can layer it with the perfume. I tried it for the first time today and applied some around noon and the scent is about to wear off now as I type this and it's around 5pm, so it lasts just as long on my skin as the EDP does, which is unfortunate. I've found the perfume smells awesome, but only lasts about 5 hours give or take on my skin as well. Seems the perfume follows the same time-frame. My plan is to apply the perfume in the morning and use the lotion midday as a pick me up as I love how Brit smells.
This smells so great. I reallly, really wish it came in an EDP instead of just an EDT. Everyone's complaining about the same thing in these reviews: smells great; doesn't last. The problem is it's an EDT. It really does smell awesome. It smells like sweet grapefruit to me and isn't overpowering at all. It also has such a warm feel to it. I was so surprised this came from Beyonce. I would definitely buy it if it lasted longer, but spraying it multiple times a day would be quite annoying. Otherwise it's a wonderful scent.
Conditioner -Nexxus - Pro Mend Split End Binding Daily Conditioner

I've had a great experience with this conditioner! I have pretty damaged hair due to chemical treatments and I'm in the process of letting it grow out. My hair's about 1.5 feet long, so it's pretty long, of average thickness, and relatively straight. I have split, brittle ends. I don't know if this really does "seal" the ends, but I do feel like I'm getting less split ends overall. The conditioner smells AWESOME. It's one of the best-smelling conditioners I've ever smelled and I love sniffing it every time I use it. When you apply it it doesn't feel really "slippery" in your hair as you apply it through your hair, which was kind of disappointing the first time I used it, but after my shower my hair was very easy to comb through, so I know it worked. It doesn't leave my hair greasy or heavy feeling at all, so I don't know what the other reviewers were saying when they said they had that problem.
Price: Very good. I got a trio at Ulta for a little over $6. Packaging: Packaged well. I don't use the applicator that comes with it as I use my own brushes, but it does come with one. Only major con is the package is sealed with one of those really annoying sticky tabs that leaves huge amounts of super sticky residue on your eye shadow clasp. I had to use Goo Gone to get it off! Overall: Very pigmented, not too shiny which is nice so I can wear this to work (I got a neutral palate). Seems to have good staying powder and doesn't seem to crease too badly.
This fragrance is similar to Couture Couture, but it's a lot stronger, more floral, and it's more mature, in my opinion. If I had to compare the fragrances in terms of age group, I would say Viva La Juicy would be for the younger lady (teens, young twenties), Couture would be for twenties, and this fragrance would be for older twenties, thirties+. It's a very floral smell and reminds me a bouquet of flowers and has insane staying power. I sprayed some on me at the store on my wrists and I could smell it after taking a shower 12 hours later. If you do use it, make sure to spray it very, very conservatively since it's a very potent EDP. I really do like the smell, but I think I prefer Couture since it's a tad less strong than this scent and I think this one can get a little on the overpowering side.

This smells so good. I tried it today at the store and it honestly smells like a bouquet of flowers. Compared to Viva La Juicy it's not as "sweet" smelling, but it's definitely more mature and flowery and less vanilla smelling. I own Viva La Juicy and this will probably be my next perfume purchase. It has amazing staying power and one or two squirts is all you need. After trying it a few times, I definitely can smell what everyone else is saying when they say it smells like grapes and reminds them kind of grape koolaid from childhood. It faintly reminds me of that, but with a lot of floral scents on top of it.
I got this to try it out based on positive reviews and I do like it. It's very strong, so a little goes a long way. I only wear one spray and usually I'll only wear it on my chest/stomach so the smell isn't overpowering. It's a very sweet scent and quite popular, so people recognize it. I think a lot of people are over spraying it on themselves and that's why people are saying it's too intense!
Sweet mother, this is the most sickeningly sweet perfume I have ever smelled. If you want the sweetest perfume imaginable, this is it. I'd imagine this perfume on a sixteen year old girl. It's honestly the most overpowering, sweet, sugary smelling thing ever, which I suppose lives up to its name and should have come as no surprise. It's very concentrated and strong, so a little goes a long way. It's not to my taste though I do like "sweet" smelling perfumes. This one takes it up a notch. I'd imagine a high school girl wearing this. I don't think it's a BAD perfume, per se, but it's not something that I could wear to work (office setting).
I smelled this at the department store today and I sprayed it about 4 times on a scent tester stick and had a puzzled look on my face. I really could NOT smell this thing at all. It has a very, very weak scent for a "perfume" and the smell wasn't all that great. It was one of the first perfumes I smelled that day too so my nose was "fresh". I was actually very disappointed in this one.

I am in my mid-twenties and, while I would not wear this scent at all since I feel like I'm way too old for it, I really do like the smell. I could definitely see a younger girl in her teens wearing this. It smells very, very sweet, but unique. Candy-sweet, but very unique. I haven't smelled anything like it. If you're in your mid-twenties or above it wouldn't be something I would want to smell on you, but I could totally see a young, fresh girl wearing this on a date or something during the summer. It's very, very, VERY sweet smelling though, so beware.
I didn't love this the first time I smelled it, but now I love it! Burberry Brit is a gentle scent. It's not a pow, in your face scent and it hugs gently to your skin and doesn't fill the whole room, so it's perfect for wearing during the day or in the office. It's also not an offending scent by any means so I find it to be the perfect scent to wear to work if you're in an office setting and don't want to offend anyone. As for fragrance, to me it smells mostly like clean soap, almonds, lime, and maybe a little bit of vanilla. It's a warm smell, but not overly sweet. It also doesn't smell strongly of alcohol, which some perfumes do. I'm in my mid twenties and I don't find this too mature a scent or too young of a scent. I imagine a classy lady in her twenties/thirties wearing this. Give it a try. It's really a pleasing fragrance and you can't really go wrong with it!
Glad I read the reviews here. This perfume smells great! It's not chemically at all and smells light, fresh, and flowery. It's sweet smelling without being overwhelming and can be worn in the office without being offensive. I love this scent and I think it will be my signature. I'm in my mid-twenties and it has a mature feel to it without being too young/too old. I love this!
Everyone's right when they say that this reminds me of baby powder. It doesn't smell chemically, but it does remind me strongly of powder. I don't think I would wear this anywhere. It doesn't remind me of a "youthful" smell. It's more something I'd imagine an old lady wearing.
