I originally was hesitant about buying a Mac lipglass, only because of how expensive they are. Usually 6 dollars or so is relatively pricey for a gloss in my opinion, but I caved. I got it for a little cheaper on a blog sale, and the color is really beautiful and has a good amount of pigment. Since this is limited edition though, I think I'll try other colors.

I use this every single day, and have it in my makeup bag. It's perfect for a lid, highlight and base color.
I just bought this yesterday & I'm really liking it so far. The color is nice and the way they designed the top of the container makes it so none of it leaks out of the lid. The only complaint is it doesn't have a good smell. Still really nice gloss though
I absolutely love this. I love lemon desserts and this smells exactly like lemon meringue pie or lemon bars. It smells so amazing & makes me happy every time I spray it on. Plus, the packaging is gorgeous. Only problem I have is that the lasting power is terrible.
I just got this this morning & was so excited to smell it. I'd been looking for something I could call my signature scent that was fruity and refreshing. This definitely fits, it's really tropical & fruity at first then starts smelling really creamy coconut and it's also has a little spice to it. I really am loving it so far.
I love the smell of this, it's really girly & flirty. I like wearing it in the winter or when going out. It just gives a really warm feeling when I wear it.
I just started wearing this again and went and bought the little 1 oz bottle of the perfume. It smells so fresh & fruity, with a little hint of floral. It's really nice for summer and an everyday scent. I do find that it wears off though, so I use the shower gel as well. This is definitely my favorite in the Secret Garden Collection.

I really love this. I snatched it from my mom's makeup bag to try it out and it made my lashes so long and full. I was amazed by it. I love how it sticks to my lashes and separates nicely as well. I do find that it's not as pigmented as I'd like, so I go over it with CG Lash Blast.
Wow, I totally thought I was the only one who had the peeling problem with this. It's really a piece of crap. I remember wearing this my junior year of high school and it would start peeling off if I scratched my eye a little. Just wasn't good at all.
I don't like this enough to use as my everyday scrub because I prefer a grittier one like the apricot scrub, but I use it as a mask right after I use the St. Ives Apricot Scrub and I leave it on for about 5 minutes while shaving and after I rinse it off my face feels like butter, so I don't even have to use lotion. Really nice.

I loved this, it was the only hair product I've used for natural waves or curl that made my hair smooth, polished and natural. It also smelled really good & was never sticky so I could use a ton on it. I've tried plenty of brands and have been let down by many, so sad this was limited edition.

I really love this, I wasn't really digging the little puff that came with it because it spilled all over when I first opened, but it's fine just using a brush. I really like how a little goes a long way with this and it's gives me a nice, fresh looking glow. I have to reapply a bit though, since it fades. I did find that it looks really nice with the Maybelline Dream Mousse blush underneath though. I'll maybe repurchase this if it's on sale, it was a little expensive.
