Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Tropical Passionfruit

This was the second BBW splash I got, nice citrusy sweet scent. Sometimes I can smell coconuts which kinda turns me off sometimes. Nice pick me up scent, but don't over apply because it can be cloying. I won't be repurchasing because I think I'm more of a floral person.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Magnolia Blossom- Body Butter

This review is for the body cream. I am so in loooove with this cream, it's such a beautiful feminine scent. The cream gets easily absorbed by my skin which is great for me since I don't like sticky body creams. The scent lasts about 4-6 hours, good enough. I'm not so sure about it's moisturizing power because I use a soap that has moisturizers that even without lotion my skin doesn't feel dry. Since I have the big size I placed some on a handy small lotion container with pump so I can take it any where with me. I will definitely repurchase.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Pleasures Body Splash in Peony

A very nice light rose scent. Sometimes it's soooo light 6 spritz isn't enough. I happen to love this scent smells quite feminine and soft you'll feel like a lady when you're wearing it. Alas! Staying power isn't very good. I will repurchase if it's on sale.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Wild Honeysuckle

This smells like Sampaguita which is a local flower here in my country (Philippines). Smells fresh but if used too much it might give you a bit of a headache. Staying isn't too good for me it kinda fades quite quickly so I think you need to reapply through out the day. I won't be buying again because it's not the kind of scent I'd miss.

This review is for the body splash. This is my second favorite splash from BBW, it's a nice floral feminine scent. It can be strong if you apply too much there is a bit of a powdery scent but it's quite light. Lasting power is pretty decent. When I first tried this I didn't care for it much but still I decided to buy it because I want to try floral scents from BBW but after a few hours of use this scent grew on me. I hope they won't discontinue. I will definitely repurchase!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - White Tea and Ginger Body Splash
jaluna 4/5/2008 9:46:00 AM
This is my favorite scent from BBW, it smells fresh and light great for everyday use. I can really smell the tea and ginger combo and the rose scent when it dies down. Gripe is, it doesn't last the whole day but I don't mind reapplying, I place some on my handy small atomizer so I can carry it anywhere. I recommend it to everyone to try. I will definitely repurchase.
I like this because it does it's job in moisturizing my lips and works as a good lipstick base. I love that it has SPF, one less to worry about when I go out in the sun. I got this in Strawberry and I'm gonna say that I'm pretty disappointed because it doesn't taste like Strawberry at all, much more like plastic. I would repurchase but a different flavor, by the way this is cheap and that's the best part. Quality for a very affordable price.
This is very useful to me as a base for my powder eyeliners because it makes the shade more deeper and stay longer. It's a dollar, very very affordable. The pencil itself is creamy soft so it doesn't tug on your lids which to me is very good because I don't want to have to worry with eye wrinkles in the long run. Like I said staying power is really good. I would repurchase!
Foundations -Maybelline - Clear Smooth Gel Foundation
jaluna 12/4/2007 9:34:00 AM
I have this in the Sand shade. I like this gel foundie because it doesn't break me out and does not clog my pores. This has light coverage, which is good because I never liked the masked effect that most foundations give. It doesn't always control the oil on my face but it doesn't add to it either. If you have dry skin be sure to moisturize first before putting this on or else you'll have a hard time blending it on your face. Staying power on me is pretty good, I always set it with powder and I just blot my face for the rest of the day. I will buy this again but I'm not going to stop looking for another alternative though.
I really wanted to like this product/shade but when I tried it when I got home the shade was a bit too dark on my lips, I looked sickly. I'm Asian with brown skin with yellow undertones. But I do like the matte consistency and I think this would have a good staying power if I only let it stay on my lips. Maybe I'll try and purchase another shade but not this.
Lipstick -Clinique - Different Lipstick - Think Bronze
jaluna 12/4/2007 9:20:00 AM
I got this on Ebay in GWP packaging. The shade on me is a pinky bronze that's a bit sheer on it's own. I use this on top of my matte lipsticks if I want a little something different. Staying power is very minimal. I don't think I'll repurchase.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Olive Body Butter
jaluna 12/4/2007 9:15:00 AM
I like this a lot but it can be greasy at times. I live in a humid climate so I don't get to use this as much as I want. I love the Olive scent, it's quite diff. from the other fruity scented creams body shop sells. Packaging is nice too. I will repurchase.
My sister gave this to me when she went to the US and got it on sale for $4. It's not what I would usually pick for my self, 'cause I prefer citrusy scents that are not too sweet. Sparkling Peach is pretty good, but try not to spray too much or it could be over bearing and too sweet. It is really sparkling and fresh if applied right. It's a pretty good summer scent. I won't be purchasing this for myself though.
Foundations -Wet 'n' Wild - Ultimate Cover smooth foundation
jaluna 7/10/2007 11:13:00 AM
I like this product, it's not the best but it works for me. I believe this to be sheer than most foundations. If you want full coverage don't try this. The packaging for me is great because of the plastic thingy in the mouth of the tube that prevents the foundation from spilling all its contents in one pour. So far no break outs and that's important. It could be a little on the oily but I fix that with powder. I have this in Honee shade, I'm asian with brown skin on me it looks pretty natural. I would repurchase.
Lipstick -Prestige - Lipstick (new packaging/formula)

I have this lipstick in Crush. When I bought it there weren't any testers so I had to rely on the shade on the bottom of the l/s so I thought this might be a nice nude red-brown. But alas! When I opened it I knew it was darker and not at all like the shade below. Then I tried it, it went mauvey brown on me. I was so dissappointed because I like the texture, it would have been perfect if not for the color. I might try to buy mocha or VIP next. The packaging is nice, I wish that the shades below the l/s are exactly alike the lipstick it self. I would repurchase in a different shade.
