I had been wanting to try this for a while and luckily my sister bought some so I had the chance to use some of hers while we were on vacation. I put some on, tied up my hair and went to bed. The next day, I can't begin to tell you how many times I had my hand stuck in my hair. This stuff made my hair feel SO good. I plan on getting a jar as soon as I finish my qhemet heavy cream and curls milkshake. One lippie off for the smell... it's some type of herbal lemon scent that I really don't care for at all and the cost is rather high for the size you get too.
As others have mentioned below this smells alot like jadore. Although the top note is different and way better in my opinion. I only bought the pen from sephora to try it out but unless I come across something else that moves me, I may be going back to purchase a full size bottle.
I almost gave this a bad review before I came on here and read some reviews. I tried this on in the store and of course it looked really good but when I tried it the next morning it was all gray and pasty looking on me. lol Anyway after reading a few reviews, it was recommended to put on a little lip balm before applying. That way it goes on much smoother and for me, it makes it last longer. So trying it with the lip balm and not coating my lips so heavily, spite looks pretty darn good on me. I use the bbq lip pencil with it also. 12/6/10 Edit: I only use this sparingly and kinda dot on, on top of something else. I hardly ever use it just by itself but I still like it though.
My first mac lipliner purchase and so far I am impressed. I tried this on in the store with spite lipglass which the SA recommended for a nude lip and it looks great. I find myself using these two practically everyday for work. Oh yeah I'm NW47

I was expecting to be blown away by this product based on all of the rave reviews found here. In a nutshell, this is for me a inexpensive alternative to getting Velvet skincoat from DHC. Which I love but because I'm so darn oily I still have to use inconjuction with milk of magnesia to keep my face from looking like an oil slick. I will definitely be purchasing a few more tubes because when I got one from wal-mart a few days ago they were kinda low. I did try it alone first and it keep me shine free for about 2-3 hours, same as DHC. Used with M.O.M., I'm good all day. :)

I managed to grab 2 of these when they dropped the price before they discontinued it. And of course now that they no longer have it... I love it! I just cannot get enough of the smell and it lingers on me all day long. This is not my favorite next to the coconut body butter. Really moisturizes too.

My very first opium purchase... I have always loved this scent and remember one of mom's friends always wearing this when she came to visit. So I've always wanted to get a bottle but because I live in FL and we very rarely have any cold days, I figured it would be a waste of money to buy. My mom did give me a leftover bottle of her dry oil spray but even that was way too strong for me. Anyway I got this from ebay at a really good price based entirely off of the reviews here. It is absolutely wonderful and the first EDT to last all day on my skin. You can be sure I will be wearing this from now through the summer :)

Maybe the ladies who reviewed below are not all that oily so this product worked for them. But for me it works until I set foot out the door. lol I look in the mirror in the car and I'm oily. This one goes in the garbage.

I guess I'm in the minority on this one... although it is a great moisturizer the smell is horrible. Luckily it fades away after while and doesn't last all day. I don't know why but to me this smells like a combination of burnt toast and liquor. I got it during the BOGOF sale so I'm really glad I didn't pay full price. Definitely will not repurchase in this scent.
This was a purchase based soley on the description on sephora.com and plus since it was only $5 I figured I would give it a try. Wow, is all I can say. Well that and absolutely delicious :) I love a vanilla/foody scent. On me the chocolate and vanilla are most prominent and the staying power is not that bad either. Since the 1 oz size is only $14, I will be hitting sephora up for a couple of bottles to make sure I don't run out.***Update 1/16/08*** Now for some reason it smells really peppery on me so I don't use it as much anymore.

I really wish they would bring this mascara back! Like the other reviewer I always wipe off my brush otherwise I get a big ole mess. This was perfect for everyday natural looking lashes.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - True Blue Spa Grin & Bare It Body Lotion
mdorese21 9/25/2007 9:50:00 AM
I got a sample of this when staying at a Wyndham resort since they carry this line now in the rooms and I'm really glad that I didn't buy it. I guess this is good if your skin is not all that dry and you have no ash and don't need a heavy duty cream. Those of you who do, I would not recommend you purchase this as anything other than a nice smelling hand lotion. And honestly it didn't even moisturize my hands all that well either. About 30 mins after using my hand felt dry and I had to apply again. Not worth the cost at all. Two lippies for the nice clean lemony scent.
Another purchase based on all you MUA'ers! I can't remember the last time I bought a max factor mascara although I used to use 2000 calorie back in high school and loved it. This mascara is right up there with all the best in my opinion. My lashes are pretty much nonexistent without anything on them. This gives me all the volume and length I need. And with the waterproof formula it'll still be on in the morning. It's not something I wear to work everyday but at night and on the weekends it's definitely my fave.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Vanilla Spice Body Butter
mdorese21 9/25/2007 9:03:00 AM
This is something I purchased based on all the reviews here and I was not disappointed. I love vanilla scents and especially spicy ones so I knew this would be right up my alley. One lippie off due to the cost and consistency. It doesn't seem to be quite as thick as the other body butters TBS sells. But it still moisturizes as well as the others. Update 10/12/07: I made the mistake of putting this all over and going out to work - the spiciness was so strong it made me tear up. Although I still love this scent I know now I cannot wear this in the office.
Gels/Soaps -Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Bath & Shower Gel - Midnight Tuberose
mdorese21 9/10/2007 11:47:00 AM
I found this in the largest bottle they have at TJ Maxx for $7.99 and so far so good. I got this for my bubble baths and while it's not my HG, I still love it as it does bubble up nicely and leaves me and my bathroom with a nice scent. This would be good for layering with Michael by Michael Kors in the winter. **Update 10/12/07** Lathers up nicely in the shower but not so much for my bubble bath.
