Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational in Nude Nuances 865
Tresha 7/1/2012 8:30:00 AM
I cannot stop wearing this color! It a pretty pinky nude that shows up more peachy on me than pink. It could be that my lips are very pigmented or my lighting though. I have seen it look pinker on other people on YouTube. The smell can be a tiny bit annoying, but the color is so nice that I just tolerate it. Also, I absolutely love the frosted packaging. It's gorgeous on all levels!!!

I wish this wasn't limited edition! It's the most awesome sugary sweet coconut scent. I purchased the lotion when it first came out, and I loved it so much that I stocked up at the semi annual sale. It was 75 percent off, so I got all the products in this fabulous beachy scent. The cream is the most moisturizing on me. The scent lingers for hours.
Polishes -Maybelline - Color Show in Green with Envy
Tresha 7/1/2012 7:53:00 AM
This is a gorgeous bright mint pastel green! It's very pigmented and wears very long in comparison to the Maybelline nail polishes formulas of the past!!! I feel like this wears just as great as my Zoya and China Glaze nail polishes. It lasted 5 days with no chips. I love this one so much that I went back and got 5 other colors. They all wear great! This is my most favorite mint color nailpolish ever! I also love it with a gold glitter top coat.
I have Miss Sweety, and it's a matte pale light peach color. Not beige enough for me to call a nude. Definitely a pretty light peach. I purchased this here in Las Vegas at Walgreens in Planet Hollywood at the Miracle Mile shops. They have the whole Gosh line there! My only complaint about this polish is that it can get a little clumpy when I put my Seche Vite topcoat over it. It layers best when I let it dry a few minutes before applying topcoat. That annoys me a little, but color is so pretty and worth the extra time and effort. It was $7.50 a bottle. This color looks great with my tan!
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Vanilla Coconut Passion

A couple years ago I purchased Tahitian Vanilla Flower limited edition spray. I am so happy that Coconut passion is a dupe for it. It's not as strong as Tahitian Vanilla Flower. Victoria Secret products seem to not be as potent in scent like before. However, Coconut Passion still smells great! Love love love this!!! This is my holygrail. I have a backup stockpile. I get tons of compliments when I wear it. Great for Summer nights out on the town.
Lipstick -GOSH - Velvet Touch Lipstick #134 Darling
Tresha 4/28/2012 11:29:00 PM
This lipstick gets a lot of good press. And, I like it, but don't think it's amazing. The color is a great pale beige matte nude. Not worth the 12 dollars in my opinion because....the lasting power is terrible. If you are interested in seeing the whole line here in the U.S.? The Walgreens here in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood hotel has the whole Gosh line and many other European brands. I would have felt better if I paid 10 bucks for it, but at 12 dollars...I would have rather paid a few more dollars for MAC lipstick.
I have replaced my Sedu flatiron every year for nine years, and got tired of spending big dollars, so I did some research and with a recommendation by a friend got this iron. I have to say for price...I really like this flatiron. It's a great value for the price. I like that I still have a little volume in my hair. I have very thick curly hair, and this does a nice job straightening. The plates are not as smooth as the Sedu iron, but I make sure to use adequate serum to protect my hair and help this iron slide through. I got this on sale for $49.99 at Sallys with two free GVP hair products of my choice. I highly recommend this if you don't want to spend too much on a flatiron. This gets super hot fast, and I love that it is so light weight. I can also get very close to my scalp without getting burned. I have it in pink. I am very happy with this flatiron. The Sedu works better at straightening for sure, but this is a nice change for me. I'm sure I will end up going back to a more highend flatiron when I feel like splurging and want stick straight hair in one swipe with 0 frizz. Update: Missing my Sedu because it really does a better job of straightening and hair looks straight morning until night and no frizz. With this iron my hair doesn't stay flawless until days end. Still a great value and a good backup flatiron, but not my holygrail flatiron.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Medium Plus

I love how this sets my foundation and looks so flawless, but it breaks me out like crazy every single time I wear it. I keep trying. And it keeps breaking out my skin. My skin couldn't tolerate Studio Fix, and I can't tolerate this too :( I have no idea what ingredients in Mac powders that cause me to break out so badly. Other lines don't do that to me.
I like this, but it's not my favorite Cotton Candy fragrance. Nice, soft, and sugary on me, but there is a slight citrus note that annoys me. Its definitely a more sophisticated cotton candy scent. Very feminine and ladylike. This is a great scent for woman who like cotton candy, but are afraid they may smell like a 12 year old. The bottle is butt ugly. It doesn't compliment the scent or look cute displayed.

Sugary goodness!!!! I love the notes of strawberry and vanilla sugar. I dont believe I have to stop wearing this at any age. I dont have those kinds of rules for myself. This scent is fun and comforting. I get many compliments when I wear it. Just a great feminine fragrance! And super affordable too! I get the cute 2nd pink marabou feather bottle at Kmart for about $9. It the only place around here I have seen it. I adore this fragrance. I often mix it with musky scents and oils. Love it!

I keep this in my bag at all times. It the best sweet vanilla cotton candy like fragrance I own. I wish it was a perfume, so it would last longer. I spray this and one whiff completely puts me in a great mood! I heart this!! Perfectly sweet and not cheap sickening sweet. Is it me or is Victoria Secret watering down their body sprays? They use to be so strong and last long me. Not anymore. What's up with that?

Breaks my heart that this is no longer made! It a very elegant warm vanilla scent unlike any other in it's price range. I so wish VS would bring it back. I am rationing the last bit if my back up bottle :(
The best thing about this eyebrow pencil is the spooly brush. This product is awful. I got the Blonde color. It turned gray and went on very wet. I prefer a more dry product because my skin is oily. I returned this immediately!
This eyebrow pencil has great staying power, and blends nicely into my brows. Most Taupe colors turn gray and look to ashy on me. Not this taupe pencil. It's a taupe with a warm golden undertone on me. One of the only taupe colors to ever work on my nc42 tan skin.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee

I like this a lot! Revlon has really upped their game over the last few years! I got this 40% off at Ulta and what a great deal! I thought it would be like one of those color lipbalm with no color. This actually has good pigmentation. Nice light peachy golden nude color. I would definitely be open to more colors when on sale again.
