I am not a real Rocket City cosmetic fan, However this "LOST IN SPACE" e/s trio is awesome, esp. if you love greens. Included in this trio is a deep emerald forrest green with gold glitter, Fern shimmer green very similar to UD VERT, and lastly a very pale green shimmer. All 3 of these look simply Marvelous teamed up with RC Nitrous e/l or my favorite UD THAMES e/l. I was dissappointed to hear that RC may discontinue this e/s trio. It was worth the money. Cheaper than buying 3 of MAC, UD singles. I love MAC and UD too though.
Thumbs Up ***** on this UD e/l Thames. Very sexy deep green shade for smokey forrest effects. I don't use e/l very often, but fell in love with this one. This one is similar to NARS Sir Lanka liquid e/l only more true green and NO BLACK. Better priced. Fairly easy to apply too. If you LOVE green this one will meet your expectations. I will definitely purchase this one again. I was never much for Rocket City products however it is also similar to the Nitrous e/l. Nitrous is more teal green. RC is now DC so I was thrilled to find another green HG.
Urban Decay e/s are awesome for the price. They are heavily pigmented and stay on well esp. If you 1st apply the Primer potion. Acid Rain is one of my favorites. It's a beautiful shimmer yellow- green. Pearlescent green with yellow. Metallic yellow-green. Light minty. Similar to MAC chartruese pigments. No glitter in this one. I will definitely purchase this one again if they don't DC it.
Powders -Urban Decay - Red Hot Flavored Body Powder
luckylady214 2/20/2005 9:35:00 AM
I first got this UD -"RED HOT " Flavor in the menergie trois set. I Have to say that this one is my favorite of all the flavored shimmer highlighter powders in UD line. It is a pink shimmer that tastes and smells like cinnamon toast. Like the name says (RED HOT's) the tiny cinnamon candies. It does NOT leave a bad after taste either. The packaging is very feminine and cutesy. Very trendy line. Like the previous MUA'er reviewer's have said, it does NOT transport in the mail well in the boxes. It spills everywhere leaving a real mess !!!!! The little containers do transport well and if lid is kept closed it does hold it scent and flavor for some time. The Item is over priced for a powder!!!! This one has now been discontinued!!! TOO BAD.
I was extremely disappointed with this Product from the BENEFIT line. It's NOT a gloss & it did not plump the lips. It is more of a primer for the lips. I definitely will NOT buy this again. Duwop Venom, Freeze 24/7, & Two Faced Lip fusion works much better. However it works pretty good for concealing dark circles LOL,which is not it's purpose. Save your money, Gals!!!!
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci - Lemon Meringue lotion
luckylady214 11/1/2004 9:52:00 PM
The New BBW "Tutti Dolci" line is a dessert line. It's quite similar to Jessica Simpson's Dessert Beauty and costs less. Of all the new ones in this line By BBW, The Lemon Meringe Souffle is Awesome. Light lemon, fresh and clean. You want to eat it. THE PRODUCT SMELLS GREAT!! NO CALORIES!!! Feels wonderful smooth, silky, Moisturizing without being greasy on the skin. This is definitely My favorite in this line. I will buy this again or ask for it for a Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas.
"Kahala- The Original and Authetic Aloha Hawaiian Shirt company had partnered with DEMETER to create a collection or orginal and authentic Hawaiian Fragrances and scents. " I really wanted to try this one because The Bird Of Paradise Tropical flower is so beautiful and unique. I had this flower in my Bridal Bouquet. THIS Demeter fragrance is Not what you's expect. The Bird of Paradise is rather a blend of warm, fresh and inviting Fresh Green and exotic blossoms that MUST be tried to be experienced. NOTES: FRESH GREEN NOTES & EXOTIC BLOSSOMS STYLE: CLEAN, FRESH, INVIGORATING THIS is not my favorite in the collection. IMHO if you like the smell of fresh cut grass , with a hint of flowers you will probably like this one. The dry down is much nicer than the first spray. Like most of the Demeter The staying power is short.
DEMETER KAHALA BLUE HAWAII PMU, close your eyes and escape for a brief moment. Laying on the Beach in Jamama, or Hawaii (Maui), Rio De Janerio. No cell phones , No Pagers. The smell of clean fresh air, ocean breeze. Sipping on Your PinaColada. RELAX!!!!!! This happens to be my favorite of the New Kahala Demeter Line. Top Notes are the Pineapple and Papaya. Actually This one smells quite similar to the cocktail (PINACOLADA). This Fragrance is quite fruity, yet light. The scent is great for summer, or in the dead of winter , wishing you are on Vacation or Summer again.The 1 Oz PMU retails for $18.00. Not really a bad price. The packaging is simple and descrete. As with most of the DEMETER fragrances the staying power is not very long.
The Demeter SE cotton candy was wondeful. I would have given that one 4 Lippies. The one they recently put out in the regular line really smells nothing like cotton candy. Demeter should have put the Special Edition out in their regular line. The Juice Bar Cotton Candy has it bet by far. This new one is a dissappointment. The new one smells like sugared rubbing alcohol.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - Dr Feelgood
luckylady214 7/12/2004 8:16:00 AM
The packaging is adorable. I was excited about getting this item. It definitely is the inferior primer. SmashBox Photo Finish is the Best!!!!!! Then Philosophy , Ice Cream Man. Dr. Feelgood does not really do what it is suppose to do. I really have been disappointed with Many of the Benefit products and they are overpriced. Smashbox, UD, MAC, NAR's and Philosophy line Much superior products. Save your money.
BBW True Blue Spa Shea It isn't so foot cream is the Bomb!!!! It is very soothing and Non greasy. It actually works Much better than a competitor product Benefit Sandal Scandel which is overpriced and does not work nearly as well. When you can get the BBW @ their Semi Annual Sales 2 of 1 is an awesome deal. Great for softing the dry skin on heels. Go buy a cheap pair of pom pom booties @ Walmart. I will definitely Buy this product again.
This One is definitely A winner. Orange Cremesicle is a light orange, vanilla Ice cream scent. I must agree with everyone else on this, smelling exactly like the Orange Cremesicle's from the Ice Cream man. Very Light Orange citrus,delicious, mixed a with vanilla cream. (Orange Sorbet). Like Most of the Demeter they do not last long. Fades quickly. This one I had wanted to try for a long time , glad I did. it's One of my personal favorites. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY Great for the summer
Very pretty whitish-pink Irredescent Glowing shade. One of my personal favorites
Special Edition , Rare Now hard to find and Discontinued. Too Bad!!!! Very beautiful , interesting mixed shade with Mauvy, purple , shimmer. Very Festive and FUN!!!!!! Much prettier Than ALL GIRL
Very pretty pigment . Too dark for My coloring. Makes a great liner or smokey eye effect. Black shimmer shade
