Smells good, doesn't weigh down my curls. I use this one whenever I wear my wavy hair down. It helps to boost my waves nicely. I have layered hair, and it allows my hair to flip up at the ends in a really cute way. Plus it never makes my hair look dry. Love it.

Can't find this one these days...this one is great for control and taming frizz, while maintaining a human hair (read: not porcupine) appearance. Smells good, makes hair look a tad greasy the next day, so you will have to wash daily. Probably good for drier hair.

With the smell and texture of body lotion, I was confused before applying it to my hair, checking the package thrice before smoothing it in. On the plus side, makes my hair look healthy. On the other hand, makes my hair STRAIGHT!! Everytime I use it, my hair hangs. I am confused and dismayed.
this was a christmas gift from a very dear friend who is a huge fan of philosophy products...this breaks me out EVERY time I use it! I always get a pimple afterward. I have combo skin with occasional breakouts. This product smells fine, feels great and rinses clean...alas.
Sheer, packs a punch of true red color. Like vinyl on lips. Packaging not messy...nicely done. Looks great over Rimmel 381 Astral. Like snow white's lips, if she weren't such a prude!!
Looks great on pale skin! I wear it with red lipstick and it gives my face a pick-me-up. It does have a tendency to fly everywhere when i stick my blush brush on it...messy. But beautiful and can't beat the price. A little goes a LONG way.
My favorite neutral lipgloss...looks like my lips, only better. Goes well on top of lipstick. Gloss is a little filled up in tube, I always have to clean it. Kinda messy. I will keep buying this one for years. Chanel gloss is my favorite.
This only smells good in cooler weather...I was in a dept store in July and smelled COty Vanilla, located it's source, asked if that was what she was wearing and received an incredulous look followed by, "No, I am wearing Hanae Mori." Gag. In winter, it's beautiful.
It is a "light" perfume with all of the scent requirements of a heavy fall/winter! I can't wear this in spring/summer, except at nighttime...it smells vaguely of a night on the town...when your perfume has mingled with ciggies and dancing. I love it! I wear it at clubs, I love how I smell afterward. (Am I sick or what?) This is a peppery scent. No fluff or powder, no sweet or candy. It's not "clean" or "fresh", but it's intimate, sensual, seductive, and womanly. OOOH me likey!
This fragrance smells like the The Au Vert soap I washed my hands with..the the au vert perfume was nightmares-ville on me. So imagine my surprise to find that this one smells fantabulous!! It has a subtle, voluptuous fragrance. When it catches the air, it is such a pleasant surprise to smell something so light, warm and clean. I really love this one! I have to wear it on my clothes or the linen, it's not so great with my BODY.

Takes many washings to remove this great granny's thriftstore sweater scent. all of the supposed fragrance notes jumble into one horror of a fragrance. My nightmare personified.

Pretty much one of my favorite lipglosses EVER. I am a recovering makeup artist and current beauty addict. This adds a little dimension to my lips, makes them look a lil fuller, and smells good. It doesn't wash me out, and goes well with a neutral liner. It's freakin sexy, as only subtle things can be!
I got this one for $9.00 at Marshalls. I think it smells like Jasmine, for some reason. it is heady, straightforward and uncomplicated, smelling a little cheap.
This is very creamy and makes my skin feel oily. I have combo skin, and thought I would try something for the cool weather to protect my skin, however, I never feel clean after using this one. I think this is best for dry, even complexions, as I got a HUGE zit after using this.
