Purchased this in the tart. Not a total dupe for pancakes (although it did cold) but a light maple foody scent. Not overpowering or nauseating. So yummy & comforting. Perfect for fall!! However most likely would not repurchase. Hardly any throw. Think swan creek candle co. offers a stronger & better maple scent but for a $1 it was worth trying.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Nail Color in Sparked / # 435F

Exceptional find based solely on the reviews here. I am shocked at the price (.99), ease of application & it's durability. 2 thin coats did the trick and this stuff hasn't budged off my toes. Reminds me of Dorothy's ruby slippers every time I glance at my toes. Highly rec if you are in the mood for a fun vibrant glitter polish. The best I have tried. Edit: I couldn't get this stuff off!!!
Wasn't sure what to expect so I bought a trial size. I straighten my hair and I desire something that will protect it as well as smooth and straighten but yet give me body & a little bit of texture. I know I am asking alot since I have dry, heavily bleached, frizzy hair and want that Aniston looking head of hair. Alot of products just leave me with stringy, greasy, flat strands. Really pleased with the overall result and also that it's easy to get & isn't super spendy. Highly recommend. Edit: got lots of compliments on my hair last nite!!!
I bought a trial size and no complaints. I have dry, frizzy, heavily highlighted hair that gets straightened. Did not leave my hair feeling heavy or gunky but it was heavy in the scent. I usually use Redkin All Soft and this I thought was a heavier version of that. I will probably rotate b/w the two because this may be little too much of a good thing. My big complaint it the name - I must have passed it up a million times at Ulta based on the name. to me at least the name does not match the description of this product. Edit: I had to rotate this out. It's a little heavy for summer. May go back to a trial size to rotate in the winter.
I have half straight / half wavy heavily highlighted hair. This is the first product that did not leave me w/ frizzy hair & didn't leave me a tangled mess. Gave me tousled waves & volume & think this product would work for me on days I want to air dry. What I didn't like is the price - pretty steep. I didn't realize how little I would use (the size of a large pea) not to mention I only wash my dry hair 2 maybe 3x a week and may not use this product all three days. so going thru the large tube for $26 is going to take me forever & a day. I could see if you do hair for a living & would use this multiple times a day but If you are like me, consider the purchase of the smaller tube which sephora does not seem to carry. Ugh. Overall I liked but took lippies off cuz of the price.
Lip Gloss -Bobbi Brown - High Shimmer Lip Gloss (all)

I may not buy another lipglass or dazzleglass again after using this! Super smooth, not grainy or sticky AT ALL, loved the doe-foot applicator and the vanilla scent. I wass shocked it applied so smoothly. Stayed on as long as expected and did not leave my lips gunky after wearing it for awhile or leave chunks of glitter on my lips. Was everything I wanted in the dazzleglass. Purchased Bellini which has now replaced my MAC big baby lipglass. My lips are really pigmented but it still gives a high shine, dimensional nude color which is looks amazing again my tan skin. Yes, a little spendy but the payoff is more than worth it. Love it!!!! Looking forward to trying the pink one.
Great product.Can't say it's HG yet but for a hydrating conditioner, it worked great! I have no complaints and my hair looked shiny & silky after I blow dried.
Conditioner -TRESemme - Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner

I thought it was great but when I went in for my last highlighting my colorist thought my hair was drier than usual. This was the only change I made. I think it's a really great inexpensive product but only for normal hair. Dry highlighted / colored hair may needs more hydration then you think. There is a ton of it so I have been using it for shaving and will use here and there but not as a daily conditioner. I would definately recommend this for you normal haired girls.
Brows -Femme Couture - - Brow Couture grooming wax for brows

Just blah. Felt the product wasn't soft & strong enough to really grip those unruly strays I seem to have & hold them in place. When I pressed the stick harder, it took some of the brows hairs with it. Just wasn't for me. I seem to have better luck w/ a brow brush & gel.
It did give me a little volume but just like another member posted - I also can't stand he dirty hair, grimey feeling and how dull it makes my hair. Also I have to wash more often when using this product. Last nite, I only used a tad by my bangs & it was much better. Definately less is more when using this product. Anything more is asking for trouble. Would not repurchase.
Does the job but leaves my highlighted hair dry. I prefer Joico's version better.
Looks kinda scary in the tube but on my pigmented lips comes off pretty sheer. Really brightens my face when I wear minimal makeup. Not as sticky as lip glass IMHO. Only complaint - more expensive than lip glass & less product. I would say definitely test it. U may be surprised.
Greasy and thick - pure heaven in a tube!!!! Good riddance aquaphor!!
Treatments (Eye) -Burt's Bees - Naturally Ageless Eye Cream

Boo! The consistency is like non fat yogurt. I think charging people $25 to put a yogurt like product around their eyes is criminal! I was not impressed with this product at all including the unsanitary packaging. I only paid $5 and even so I wish I had it back to at least buy a latte with that money. The serum from this line however makes up for this.
This smelled OK in the store & figuring the tart was only $1 on sale, I would give it a try. Not only did it only half melt but just smelled like BURNED sugar. A nasty burned smell drifted thru the house instead of creamy ooey gooey buttery goodness. It was awful. Thankfully it was a trial run & I didn't put it in before guests came. I always say that YC is hit and miss and this is a huge MISS.
