Good strong color after only one coat,but chips off right away.I have Fuschia Power,and it's the prettiest hot pink,it just doesn't last long!Cheap,too!

HMMM..this is probably one of my favorite smelling perfumes of all time...it was love at first whiff!This smells better than Love Kills Slowly,and I LOVE that one! However,it doesn't last at ALL!The good smell is gone within half an hour of spraying it! If only they could make this long lasting,it would be perfect!

The smell of this stuff is HEAVENLY!But for volume,it's not all it's cracked up to be.Still on the lookout for my holy grail volumizing shampoo,oh well!

I guess I'm the only one here who thinks this SUCKS! It's too bad,because the color is awesome,and looks VERY natural!But unfortunately,it's too hard,and not crayon-like enough,and somewhat hard to apply! The highlighter on the other end is pretty cool.But I still give this a big fat ZERO!
Kinda funny,in the past whenever I would steam my face,I would break out like a MOFO!Years upon years later,for some strange reason,I decided to try it again...and I am just LOVING the results!My skin looks so healthy,and it's gloooooow-ing!NOT greasy,NOT shiny...glowing! Here's what I do,(in case anybody's interested),lol... 1} put on some decent music (I get bored easily,what can I say,lol) 2} wash my face just to get all the crap off,sometimes exfoliating afterwards 3} boil some saltwater on the stove,then transfer it into a big bowl 4} set my timer on for 10 minutes... 5} then I hunch over it,getting close but not TOO close lol,and use a big towel to cover my head and bowl to trap in the steam 6} I don't rinse my face off when I'm done,I just apply my moisturizer immediately afterwards,sweaty and all,and let it air dry... The end!Works for me!
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Now - CoQ10 Age Defying Moisturizer
slicedbread13 11/9/2007 5:56:00 AM
This is an all natural moisturizer I got at my local health store.Since I adore the Now all natural vitamin line,I decided to give this stuff a whirl. It's an itty bitty 2oz bottle,and has an impressive host of ingredients including shea and mango butters,green tea extract,GABA,vitamin e,hyaluronic acid,and more!The texture is very thick,and has somewhat of a weird clayish smell to it. It kinda stings a bit at first rub intil your skin gets used to it.Honestly,I HATED this stuff it at first because it broke me out like a mofo! I'm telling ya,for about a week there,it was blackhead,whitehead,and zit city! I just wanted to cry,l looked so bad,lol!But my skin was just purging from a new product, After damning it to hell,I gave it a few weeks,experimented with it a bit,and now my skin is just glowing and almost perfect!I am so glad I gave this stuff another chance,because I was THIS close to hurling it out the window,LOL.
Cleansers -Avalon Organics Botanicals - Q10 Cleansing Milk
slicedbread13 10/22/2007 11:48:00 PM
*Hmmm...I have NO idea at all why alot of the reviewers keep saying this bottle is purple with a green label,because it is NOT,it has a yellow label.Maybe they are reviewing another product,I don't know,LOL,but my review is for the Avalon CoQ10 Cleansing MILK,with the YELLOW label.Now that that's out of the way,lol... I've suddenly been wanting to try an organic facial cleanser (why,I don't know lol,)and I decided on this..I've been using this now for over 3 weeks.And wow...I am VERY impressed! This is REALLY brightening my pale,dull skin!My skin's always been really white,but lately,damn,it's super white lol! I have hyper-sensitive,uneven combination skin,and this doesn't make me break out.My face is SUPER smooth after washing!And,the scent is intoxicating!I've found it doesn't take off makeup well at ALL,but after seeing the good results it's yielding so far,the makeup thing doesn't really bother me!:) This stuff,along with using homemade honey/baking soda scrubs and honey masks,is really making my face look fantastic! It just glows! This also works handy dandy as a moisturizer!Kinda pricey,but worth it,IMO.
I love these lip balms (I don't dare call them gloss because gloss is sticky and nasty,yuck,and these are light and balmy!) I just bought the big versions of the Dr.Pepper,Cotton Candy,Kool Aid Tropical Punch and Kool Aid Strawberry Kiwi..this way I won't run out for awhile!Just the best in the world...the yummy scents keep me from eating junk food! Now I just wish they made a big version of the Orange Crush or the Orange Fanta..THAT would be the best!
This lipsmacker is great! I own many of these! It's cheap,it smells divine,and gives your lips a reddish tinge...great for the lazy makeup days or when you want to be more au naturel!Good stuff!
Shampoo -Burt's Bees - Very Volumizing Pomegranate & Soy Shampoo
slicedbread13 6/19/2007 9:53:00 PM
This very ordinary looking $7 shampoo is the BEST shampoo I have ever used!Here I am,a self admitted salon hair care junkie,(who did not believe anything was better than my Redken),and I run across this while lurking down the isle's at Ulta..and wow! First off,let me say that I am NOT into all natural hair care..I got it because it just SMELLED SO DARN GOOOOOD! It smells like fruit punch! But the best part was when I actually used it...my hair has NEVER looked so shiny,so vibrant,so healthy,so good!! I no longer use conditioners to make it shiny...I just use a diluted ACV rinse and my locks are lucious! Whenever I wash my hair,the whole house smells of the pomegranate for hours..my boyfriend loves the smell,and when company is over,they always say,"Hmmm,what's that smell?"LOL I can't believe that a $7 store bought shampoo I normally wouldn't look at twice has totally converted me.I tell everyone who will listen about Burt's Bees,and my lucious locks!*wink wink*
I found this at my local grocery store for cheap...and I LOVE the smell of this spray!! It smells slightly like suntanning lotion,or something edible like chocolately coconut,yum! Whenever I wear this,I get compliments up the yi yang about it,especially after applying Vaseline's Cocoa Butter lotion,then spraying this lightly!Two thumbs up!
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning lotion
slicedbread13 6/10/2007 8:22:00 PM
I picked this up at my neighborhood grocery store a few days ago,and I LOVE IT!While I usually hate the smell of other cocoa butter's with a passion (Palmers,ew,vomit!),this is amazing..it smells like a light buttery chocolate mudslide! And it moisturizes like a dream...with or without my jojoba oil,my skin is velvety soft!When I'm done putting this lotion on my skin,I use Secret's new body spray in Kuku Cocoa Butter,and I'm telling you what,you have to beat the guys off with a stick,they love it that much,lol! But yeah...good stuff!
After paying $18 for this stuff,I thought,"this had better work good,or back to the salon it goes!" And let me tell you..I love it!It is a light hold hairspray that holds a shape extremely well,and you can still run your fingers through it!It leaves your hair incredibly shiny,and the smell..oh,my goodness,don't get me started on the smell,it smells SO DELICIOUS!Kind of indescribable,sweet,like a cotton candy or something,and lasts all day!The smell alone is worth buying this..my boyfriend can't stop smelling my hair!I would definitely buy this again!
