Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Passion Fruit Pop

Love this gloss. My lips are pigmented, sort of a mauve color so this gloss doesn't show up too much on me but it does add a tint of pink and some shimmer. The scent is great, lasting power is pretty good. It's very convenient because I can apply it without needing a mirror. I've only used it alone because it is enough to complete my look, I don't feel I need a color underneath. I wish they'd offer these glosses at $5 as a promo sometime like BBW does with their glosses but I've only seen it at 5 for $20. $4 each is great but sometimes I don't need 5 glosses at one time, that's my only complaint. I would repurchase if I ever run out but since I now have 4 other Beauty Rush glosses and they're all pretty sheer, I don't know if I'd ever need to repurchase.

Though the color is pretty (this is a mauvey color with some shimmer) I cannot stand the scent. It's got a little too much buttery scent for me and call me weird but everytime I use it, I feel like it's greasy on my lips because of that butter smell. It also reminds me a little of popcorn because of the butter. The scent also lasts a while so it really gets to me, I had to toss it in the trash, it was making me nauseous.
I think I have the warmest of warm skintones but Pink Swoon looks great on my skin. It's a sheertone so I do need to build it up w/ 2 coats. Im an NC35 btw. It is the coolest of all blushes that I own (Pinch O Peach, Peaches, Mountain High) and I was a bit worried it would look too bright on my skin. I decided to try it on anyway since the reviews were so great. I'm glad I did because it's just what I need for a brighter pop of color.
Been using this for at least 4 months now and I must say I <3 this gloss. It is a pale peachy pinky pearly color. I wear it alone and somehow it really brightens my face up. As it fades it leaves a great stain of pearly peach on my pigmented lips. I didn't think I'd love it but I really do. I picked it up on a whim at CCO for about $10 and it was such a great deal.
Absolutely great product (color, texture, lasting power, shine)! This is so great. I got it on clearance when a KMart was closing down so it was pretty cheap for me. I would repurchase at full price if I ever ran out because this color is perfect to complete an everyday work look. It takes no effort really because I don't need a mirror and I can apply it anywhere. The color is just opaque enough to look like I have something on but not so dark that I need to apply with much precision. I've been using this mauvey neutral color everyday for the past few weeks w/ any color of blush and eyeshadow and it always goes well with any of the colors. This is my first colorjuice and I plan to try more because it stays on for a long time and I love the shine.
Lotions/ Creams -Kiss My Face - Olive & Aloe Moisturizer

I don't like the texture or smell of this. I don't know if it smells like Olive or Aloe but it becomes sort of heavy and strong after being on for a while. The texture is strange...it comes out of the pump very thick and creamy but this product doesn't moisturize too well. Rather, it seems to coat my skin with a waxy oily layer. Also, it looks like it's got pearlized something in the lotion. What is that? I'll use this up or put it in the bathroom for guests to use but I'm not buying it again.

I love this. The texture is very nice: smooth, creamy, but light. The smell is divine, can't describe it so I won't even try. Packaging is great, attractive label. Moisturizes well for summer, it's not too rich. Definitely not greasy. My fave thing about this is the smell...it is unique, relaxing, and not too strong. Great product. Gave it a 4 only because $8-10 for a bottle of this seems a bit much.
Nice base color, especially for evening. Can be a bit messy but what do you expect for $3.99. This is just as messy as my MAC Greensmoke. This doesn't add too much color as I'm NC35 but the shimmer is very nice. Not garish but still noticeable in light when it reflects. Mine is a tad hard to open but still great.

This scent is fabulous. It's probably the scent I get the most compliments on. I put it on at work and it scents the whole room for at least 5 minutes and people always ask what it is. The tube I got has a screw cap as opposed to the flip top. I guess mine is older. I just ran out and I plan to buy again.
I rarely wear this color because I'm just not a red lipstick person but it is truly a gorgeous red. I never wore reds before because I could not find one that didn't turn bright, fuchsia, or orange on me. This, however, stays a true med/deep red. I use it with Burgundy liner from MAC. The glitter is gorgeous but doesn't show up too much, which is a good thing. I can always top w/ a glitter gloss if I want that extra pizzaz =)

LOVE THIS!!! I bought 3 different colors since they were only $0.99. No testers so I figured what the heck. One of the colors I got was Brown Cafe and it is fabulous! A great neutral brown that goes with so many lippies because it blends well with my natural lip color. I recently lost mine and isn't it true "you don't know what you have til you loose it." Well I've had this for about a year and never reviewed it but once I lost it, I realized that I was going crazy looking for it. Well I bought another and should probably buy a few more backups because I use this almost everyday. And I love the price! I could buy 12 or 13 for the price of one MAC l/l. I can't say enough about this color. For the price, it doesn't hurt to try it =)
Loves it!!! This is HOT! I've been wanting a teal shadow for forever and a day. Posting on boards for suggestions, reading post after post after post on all kinds of teal shadows. I thought I'd need Prose and Fancy from MAC but I really wanted to wear a teal shadow today and didn't have time to go to MAC so I bought this at the local drugstore. I'm so glad I did. This is not a color I'd wear too often so I didn't want to spend too much. This was $1.89 and so worth it and more. It adds a pop of color w/o being garish. I would probably wear it to work once in a while. I use it wet as a liner w/ a darker brown above it and to the crease (MAC Sable mixed w/ Smut). The look is absolutely gorgeous. The color accents my brown eyes well, actually seems to make them look brighter, if that's possible. I just love the trendy/modern/stylish/up to date look it gives me. Lasted for 6 hours and still vibrant as when I first put it on. However, I did use it wet. When dry, it would easly blend away into the other colors I used. I love this. I can't say enough....that's why this review is so long...thanks for reading! =)
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - True Blue Spa I Love Shea Foot Cream

I love Shea! I really do love it. The scent is sort of a cocoa buttery/slightly chocolatey scent that I can't quite put my finger on. It's a bit strong but fades fast enough. Texture is divine. Super smooth and rich, like butter. It is a bit greasy but that's what I love about it. Feels like it's really moisturizing. I agree w/ the other review who said this is a step up from Shea It Ain't So. This is much creamier and seems to moisturize better. Lovely blue packaging matches my other True Blue Spa products on the shelf. Got this for $5 at the last big sale. Wish I bought more at that price. Get this, it's fantabulous.

HG! This is a beautiful, natural color. It's pink but not too bright. I'm an NC35 and any kind of pink tends to go bright or mauve on me...nothing looks just right. However this is fantastic. It's a deep nude-pink on me. I strayed for a bit to MAC Whirl but that's starting to look a bit too mauve on me. I'm going back to Lipblush for a bit. This will always be a fave.
This is gorgeous! I ordered this online w/o trying it on in the store first and was getting worried after reading some posts on the beauty board that this was nothing special, it was too dark, blah, muddy. Well, I finally tried it on and I LOVE it! Beautiful reddish plum color. It looks dark in the pan but applied w/ a light hand this is a great warm red/brick flush of color. I'm liking it more and more each day =) It may look dark or boring in the pan but don't let that fool you. It's a great color on my NC35 skin.
