Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter

I love the smell of TBS coconut. It is a real coconut smell not fake or overly sweet like some. It smells just wonderful and reminds me of summer. Fragrance is quite strong and long lasting for a cream. The cream itself is very nice. Has a nice thick but silky texture. Great for super-dry skin. A bit greasy to use everywhere. I don't think I'd but this on my chest/shoulders...but it's great for legs, hands, elbows and feet. I'm not a huge fan of the tub but it's okay. Will wear this product every summer.
I was not a big fan of this product. Not a great selection of colors. The lightest one was too yellow and the others were too dark. Went on streaky. No better than studiofix IMO but much more expensive! UPDATE: I finally found the perfect powder foundation in chanel dual perfection. Update: actually I think the GA silk powder foundation is even better.
This wasn't at all what I thought it would be. It is like a slightly lighter slightly pinker version or electric. This is a very warm color - not at all how it looks in most picture searches. It is very orange based and almost metalic. It looks a bit like a glossimer extreme to me. I would try before you buy forsure. Not a very wearable color IMO but as always, the texture and staying power of chanel glossimers is one of the best!
I usually love glossimers. The textures are amazing! This color IMO is too dramatic. It is bright, dark and shimmery. Too much in a lipgloss. I think it is overdone looking. It is also warmer than it looks on the website. Has almost an orange flash to the shimmer. Very loud color. Good name for it. This is a try before you buy forsure!
I love this adorable little set. I haven't been this happy with a product in a long time. It is such a cute little set with 12 mini lip glosses that taste like different ice cream flavors. They actually taste great too, it's not just a scent it's a flavor! The colors are fab too (mostly pinks) and do show up although they're quite sheer. The little tiny size is so cute and fun - great to stick on your pocket or throw in a tiny purse. Overall, I'm sold. I will buy this set again if I ever use this one up! EDIT: I'm taking off one lippie because they go bad quickly.
Over all this is an okay lip balm. I got it in miami which is a nice sheer berry pink. Pros: Actually shows up Didn't dry out my lips Really nice colors - sheer but visible Squeeze tube with a slanted tip - easy to apply not like stupid MAC pots Cons: Tastes terrible Smell isn't great either Overall I like this product but I really wish it smelled and tasted different. It tastes bad enough that I'm considering swapping it even though I love how it looks.

This is an amazing product. I can seriously use it for everything. I put the white under my brow bone and use a darker pink or brown in the crease. I swipe the brush over the whole thing for my cheeks and chest and shoulders. I even touch some of the pink on my lips sometimes. This is a beautiful beautiful product. You can use this and black mascara and look totally polished! I had to take one lippie away because it breaks easily. Mine came broken (RIS) but I still love it. I've heard a ton of other people say theirs cracked or separated too. I just wish they traveled better! How can I go on my honeymood without it? Overall a great product, a bit pricey but well worth it for how fine the shimmer is. I swapped almost every other shimmer when I got this one! Can't wait to get the beige next! EDIT: I still like this product but when used on my cheeks it makes me break out - no badly but I think it does affect my skin a little.
Today I was at MAC browsing through things waiting for my friend. I was under the false impression that I was familiar with every MAC lipglass when Cultured caught my eye. I thought it was zazoom at first but noticed it was a little more mauve and didn't have the chunky glitter. I LOVE this colour. It is the perfect cool toned lipgloss with just a hint of shimmer. It has the old sticky MAC texture which is better but still a little drying. However, the colour is so great on that I still give it a 5. You have to try this one on if you like cool toned pinks. It is more pink on than purple. Give it a try, it's quite subtle. Oh and it was $16.00 CND and has the wand applicator style.
I LOVE the colour of this lipglass but hate the chunky glitter. It is a beautiful cool tone light (but not too light) pink. Why can't they make this colour without the heavy glitter?!?! I'd give it a 5 for the colour but 1 for the glitter. Overall, amazing if you don't mind glitter but I couldn't wear it.
Okay I totally hated this lipglass with a passion. I was soooo disapointed because I thought I was going to love it. The major problem was that it has tons of seriously chunky glitter in it. I'm talking huge pieces, no shimmer here girls. The color is okay, nothing special, warm bright pink. Try before you buy!
Lip Treatments -Prada - Shielding Balm Spf 15/Lip/Tint 7

Beautiful! I love Prada lip balms for how soothing and moisturizing they are. They stay on lips forever and even last overnight. The pink one gives lips a beautiful baby pink glow with a hint of shine and a deep moisturizing treatment. A great product! Well worth the price!
This is my current fave lip gloss. I have almost used it up and I will be buying another one for sure. That right there shows that this lip gloss is amazing as I don't think I've ever actually bought the exact same lipgloss twice. This shade is very natural, just a hint of cool pink. Also cools down the tone of a lipstick. Lasts for a long time and feels great on the lips. This lip gloss is TOTALLY worth the money IMO.
This is a cool new product. I would have given it a 5 but I don't like pot lipgloss. It looks amazing over a neutral pink lipstick. I got it in iridescently. Very cool product - this one "cools down" the colour. Dare I say though that I used to get the same effect from mixing a bit of frozen white and pink opal into a clear gloss. Still overall a nice product, nice texture, nice taste, nice smell...Worth having a look at forsure.
I debated between 3 and 4 lippies. I like this product a fair bit. It was a colour they have been needing for a very long time. It's a dark YLBB colour. For those with a lot of pigment in the lips it doesn't change lip colour dramatically. Dare I say though that it's nothing too special really. It's nice but not spectacular like I wanted it to be. Also I find the new formulas dry my lips out more. Good basic colour to go with everything but not as good as I expected.
This stuff made my long hair look dull and dry. The smell just about drove me mad. I would not repurchase, however, if anyone in the states (where it's hard to find) wants a CP feel free to contact me.
