This lipsmacker smells so good!!! Doesn't taste bad, either. I have to dock a lippie since I left it in my pocket and it ruined my favorite pants :( I know, I know...totally not the lipsmacker's fault, but I like bigger packaging as far as chapsticks and such. A pot is better for me because it's hard to miss when checking pockets for washing.
I wore this a couple of years ago and really liked it. My mom would tell me I smelled like alcohol of some sort, though. But, I still wore it and I loved it. Don't know what happened to it or why I stopped wearing it, but I would buy again!
WOW! I had no idea I could ABSOLUTELY DETEST a fragrance this much! My mother bought this for me a few years ago and I hated it. We just got on the subject of Avon (left a lipstick at her house), so I looked up the reviews for this TERRIBLE, AWFUL, YUCKY scent. I AM DUMBFOUNDED by the good reviews. Maybe something is wrong with my nose. LOL. Or everybody elses! NAUSEATING powdery granny scent! Wouldn't wear if I were living in the medieval times and smelled like a skunk! LOLLLLL, awful!

DOESN'T WORK! Dried out my hair, too.
I don't think this is frosty at all, at least on my PPP skin. I think it brightens my eyes and just adds a nice touch to the natural look. Barely shows up on me, but I like it.
I assume this is supposed to be titled "Blushing Orchid Sheer"?? That's what my package says. Anyway, I really like this. Just tried it today, but I've had it for a few weeks. It's a great pinched-cheeks pink. Not over the top, just adds that nice polished look. Love it!
I totally agree with Cellogal. I didn't even know who Paula was until about a year ago, and since then...I have found that I usually strongly disagree with just about every review she has written. I don't think that anyone should base their own opinions on someone elses, but rather make an informed choice based on the factual information learned. For example, I'm not going to NOT purchase a product simply because one person who I usually agree with says that they didn't like it for reason A or B. Rather, if they say that it contains a certain harmful ingredient, I probably won't buy because it is a fact. I feel Paula is a bit too harsh on her product ratings and as Cellogal said, she is very arrogant about things....and blue eyeshadow looks great on a lot of girls!!! Make-up is art and you can't criticize another person because they may think you look as terrible as you think they do.
I purchased this because of the sticker on the bottle that said Allure reader's voted it best foundation. Um.........no. I think this is definitely a I-like-it-because-of-the-hype foundation. Yes, it covers okay, but I only have minor acne and it barely covered those blemishes. I still found that I had to layer on the powder afterwards. I look like an oil slick after an hour or two with this on. I am since back to mineral foundation. This also makes me breakout with little tiny pimples. Not good!!!! Don't recommend. Perhaps the Stay Natural is better.
I have only used this once because MUA has me so addicted to makeup now that I have a collection of blushes going on! But, what I saw in the mirror after applying this was a very subtle, natural nude rose color. A great find...especially at under $2.00!
I have had average results with all of Dove's hair products. Didn't experience any extra volume whatsoever. I will repurchase only because it has been a while since I tried it and because Dove is a gentle brand in general.
YUCK! I know this isn't made for taste, but let's face it...anything you put on your lips is likely to end up in your mouth somehow or another. I have to be extremely careful while wearing this because I end up "eating" it very easily. And the taste is absolutely disgusting! I like anything I put on my lips to be smooth like Vaseline. This applies terribly and did nothing for my cold sores--when I did have them. I only gave it 2 lippies because this is my husband's staple. But, did I say YUCK???

Smooth application and I love not having to sharpen it! Only liner I consistently buy!
Pantene makes my hair look very dull and all Pantene products contain a very scary ingredient!

I haven't tried Tweezerman's blemish extractor, but my husband has always used a bobby pin on his and it works really well! You just take the circular end and place it over the blemish and lightly press, or you can place it next to the blemish rather than over it...whichever way works better for you. You just have to play around with it a bit. It isn't really a HG, but I gave it five lippies simply because it's something most girls have and it works in a pinch!
I just tried this today, but I just feel it worked so well that I had to review right away! I really like the way my skin feels after using this. It does not feel dry whatsoever, and I don't feel the need to slather a pimple-causing moisturizer on my face. I hope the over time this will reduce and heal my mild breakouts. Love this, and it tastes very yummy!!!
