ive only used this on my hands in the sink they have set up at the store. and O.M.G. i fell in love. i was with my friend and we both tried it. we kept ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the softness. id purchase this, but maybe in the coconut lime verbena scent because i would want to layer the scent. anyway, i vow to buy this as soon as i have an extra 20 bucks or a boyfriend =)
i love this! its soo completely un-necessary but it makes me feel so special. haha. i always use it wen i wear a halter. it smells delish (like sweet vanilla icing) and tastes surprising good. i have no complaints about the packaging, but i dont travel with mine so yea.. i absolutely love the leopard print puff and the stringy thing on top of the box. heh. i would say id like to try others, but marshmallow is the only one that appeals to me in look and smell.
Eye Shadow -Bourjois - Trio Eye Shadow - Effet Lumiere

i have this in Les Roses. when i was sampling it on my hand in Sephora i fell in love. i loved the sheen it had. unfortunately it did not transfer to my eyes. and i find that it doesnt seem to last.. like i put it on in the morning, and once i come home from school there's nothing there? it does have a nice texture though. im wondering though, why did they hafta make the applicator curved? its such an annoyance. the packaging isnt great either, but its still in-tact so thats not a big deal for me.
this would be in my list of top 3 glosses. its less sticky then MAC with about the same staying power. I have this is Jaipur, it looks very Barbie-pink in the tube, but nice on the lips. i asked my friends if it looked too fake on me, but i got a general consensus of a natural pink but sparkly. so yea.. the tube is big which is good for quantity but bad for wen u want to use that tiny hand bag.
Fragrances -Ralph Lauren - RALPH COOL [DISCONTINUED]

this definetly smelled better in the ad in the magazine. hmM.. well its a sort of weird smell. not bad, but different. i think its a bit more masculine than im used to. but my main complaint about this is that it doesnt last. i spray soo much in the morning and by the time i get to school (1 hour) its gone. i prefer Ralph in the blue bottle waay more.
Im crazy about this stuff. its cheap, and has the wonderful effects of Blistex(blue tin) and Carmex without the nasty medical taste. this manages to always stay rather soft so its easy to apply (cuz i hate how chapstick turns rock-hard in the cold). atfirst i thought it smelled a bit tropical but now after over 2 weeks of using it i was clearly mistaken an dits more of a minty/herbal smell. i love how fast it moisturizes ur lips. oh.. *sigh* if u have 3 bucks (US) to spare definetly get one for urself. a staple in anyone's beauty bag, pocket, nightstand...etc
wow. i never thought i could feel this way about tweezers. amazing! i always used La Cross, but wen i lost them, i thougt it was finally time to try the famous Tweezerman. Well, i have seen the light and i will never turn back. this makes the hair practically slide out, less pain, way faster, and way more efficient. definetly shell out the 20 bucks for it. then just pray you never lose 'em =)
i LOVE this! its cheap and it has amazing staying power. a light layer of this and a dusting of pressed powder and ur good. i had this on for a weekend camping trip and it stayed on the whole time. amazing. and the price is great. i've already re-purchased this and will continue to do so.. . the only problem for me is that its hard to find. out of liek 9 drugstores ive been to, only thsi one eckerd has it. i pray that it shall never be out of stock.
nice packaging..very sanitary and convenient. and nice color match. its such a shame it didnt go beyond that. this didnt last beyond half my school day. it left me really shiny too. ugh... i cant believe it but CG Smoothers SPF 15 Tinted Moisture is waaaaay better. it has less color choices but FAir to Light matches me fine so im lucky. its just hard to find.. but im willing to search especially sinc eits like 1/4 the price of clinique with way more staying power.
Primer/ Corrector -Peter Thomas Roth - Max Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel
NYsmiLez 3/14/2004 5:54:00 PM
i received a tiny jar of this as a sample from sephora. first of all, it worked as a mattifier for me. i used it in the winter/early spring time so it didnt have that much shine to battle but still a fair share. it feels really weird wen ur trying to take some out of the jar, as someone said "frozen jello", maybe a tad more solid. and once u do apply it it becomes sorta powdery. and it created a layer over ur skin. thats wat i didnt like. after like 5 or so minuted i didnt feel th elayer but i kno it was there, suffocating my poor little pores. id love to use this mor eoften but im scared. and the tiny sample jar is lasting me a while (had it for like a month and been using it 3 or so days a week)
Hair -Kiehls - Hair Conditioner and Grooming Aid Formula 133

i wish i had enough money for this to be my HG conditioner. sadly i dont. but this is a fab once a week treat. very light but does the job. and hopefully u have a nice smelling shampoo becuz this is pretty much unscented. (i used this with Kiehls Amino Acid shampoo with coconut oil so i had a nice subtle coconut smell. MmMM...)
the first lip glass ive bought. i love it. i only bought it at first becuz i heard mandy moore uses it (my idol!), and paris hilton. im glad i did. it looks amazing. i actually love the frosty pink look. it makes my whole face just look brighter. and it smells really nice n sweet. id re-buy it in this color, and i cant wait to try other colors.
Lip Treatments -Perfumeria Gal - Agatha Ruiz De La Prada in Tutti Frutti
NYsmiLez 2/1/2004 10:41:00 PM
my favorite lip balm ever!! makes lips so smooth, its shiny so it doubles as a semi-gloss, not sticky. and tutti frutti smells amazing. reminds me of this gum from Poland, lol. i bought this in an Urban Outfitters store for 6 bucks. now i can never find it! ahh i wish i could buy it in like every "flavor" possible.
i hate these so much. its impossible to blend them. and if you really want to see the color you hafta keep layering it. so annoying. urban decay is a million times better, and they have a nice range of colors as well.
Lip Gloss -Rocket City - Cool Your Jets Cooling Lipgloss
NYsmiLez 2/1/2004 9:47:00 PM
this makes your lips look amazing! truly glossy. maybe too glossy for some, like you can see it from way far away. but i absolutely love it. i have this in Sky Hostess which is the clear one by the way. i never tried the others. the cooling thing, its not liek a blast of coolness, but u can feel it sorta tingling a bit, feels like mint. its 13 bucks which i think is decent. the only bad thing is that once, for some reason it sorta oozed out into my bag. i mustve not screwed the cap on tight enough.. eh. id still recommend it, and its 13 bucks which is pretty reasonable.
