I almost fainted at first whiff (in a good way). This smells marvelous!This is romance in a bottle. This scent is more of a light, airy springtime fragrance. When I smelled this I immediatley thought of a walk in the park with the man you love on a beautiful day, or a daytime date perfume. It's very sweet and floral. I love this! This made me have the biggest grin on my face. It's too bad that I have the smallest bottle that they made, I received it as a Chrsitmas gift along with the shower wash, which is a large tall bottle that will most likely have me smiling while bathing because of the gorgeous aroma. I really like this and I cannot wait until it warms up outside so that I can dab this on.

Heavenly! This is what spring smells like. Like a fresh blooming flower in the early morning, blowing in the breeze singing softly to your nose. I got this last year or either in 2010 during the SAS in June (for dirt cheap) and I used it sparingly because I knew I would never see this again, not even online. It's long lasting and it just smells so sweet and soft. I absolutely adored this and it's a damn shame that BBW decided to discontinue this, but they do that with most of the stuff that smells wonderful i.e Magnolia Blossom. But the stinkers i.e Japanese Cherry Blossom will never die.
This is a good product. It makes your hands feel nice and silky smooth. It does have an odd smell to it though that I can do without. However, like most hand creams, after two hand washes it's time to reapply, so it's not long lasting.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Riche Lip Gloss--all shades
felissajohnson 2/8/2012 10:55:00 AM
These are really great. I picked some up when they were on clearance at Target for $1.49. I could not imagine paying full price for these. I don't why they were on clerance because they still sell the colors that I bought in other stores. I think Target got rid of these to make room for the new LeGloss shades though. Anyway, these are really good. I have four colors and I am pleased with all of them. The only thing I don't care for is that they have that metallic smell going on. These are very opaque, but not ugly opaque. Some of the "nude" shades are not very nude. Like for example, I have "rich nude", which is actually a dark brown. No nude nowhere to be found on that one. The tubes are also very small. You don't get a while lot of product but the texture and color payoff is great. Regular price these tend to be very pricey, the cheapest is probably $5.97 in Walmart and the most I have seen them is like almost $10 in Harris Teeter which is a grocery store.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - extreme lip glider lip gloss [DISCONTINUED]
felissajohnson 2/8/2012 10:43:00 AM
LOVELY!!! These are absolutely EXCELLENT. You also get a ton of product with these because they are tall and slender. The packaging is also great because they come with a stopper in the cap that keeps them from getting messy and the gloss from squeezing out if it's smashed which is genius. I wish more companies would follow their lead. I have three of these in Chelsea Rose, Mulberry Street Mocha and Carnegie Melon. I have already did a review of the Mulberry Street Mocha. After stalking these for a few weeks, I finally decided to purchase some. My timing was perfect because when I did they were finally on sale. These are terrific. They are truly gliders. They slide across your lips like butter with ease. The Chelsea Rose and Carnegie Melon are very similar in shade, very to the point they look the same in the tube in a certain shade of light, but once outside you can see that the Carnegie Melon has more pink in it and has the most subtle of silver shimmer. I swear it's almost impossible to find a gloss with no shimmer now. These I am so pleased with, and I plan on raking up on more since I think they are being discontinued. They smelled like a fake watermelon scent which was just fine. I would rather them smell like that than have a plastic smell, a metallic smell or smell like those awful NYX glosses. These also look very pretty on my lips.I do two swipes on my bottom lip and that does it, I don't need to swipe these alot because they are very glossy. They can seem somewhat sheer but they do give your lips that perfect tint and I swear when I first tried on Chelsea Rose it literally made me smile. NYC really put their foot into making these glosses. I don't think I will try anymore of the shades besides the three that I purchased because they were the only three that appealed to me, but if I do decide to go for more, I'm sure I won't be dissapointed.

This reminds me of chocolate milk, which to me is great. That is exactly what it looks like. It is a nice cool brown with what looks like a hint of pink. I got this at Rite Aid on sale, which they have them cheaper at regular price than any of the other stores that I have seen them. This feels really good on the lips. The only thing I noticed about this is when I looked closely I could see my lip lines a little, but of course that is when I got right up on my lips in the mirror. This also has small red and gold flecks in it, which are not noticeable , well atleast when I was looking at it in the tube in the store I didn't see them but once I got home in a certain light there they were in the tube. It is a really good product though. but I think one is all I need of this color.
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Nadinola Cocoa Butter Cream
felissajohnson 2/6/2012 10:40:00 AM
This is a really good product. I use this as a foot cream and it works very well. I really have no complaints. I has a nice, light scent. It's very fluffy, has the same consistency as Nivea Soft. I love the fact that I can purchase this for only $1 and it does better than some other expensive cream brands. I have also used this as an all over body cream in the past and I was pleasantly pleased.
This is a very good brand of lipstick. I purchase these at my local beauty supply store for just $1.00. I am almost certain that these can out do some of the higher end overpriced lipsticks that are out there. These are very creamy, but not messy creamy. They do not sink into your liplines. You don't even have to have a gloss or balm with these because the texture is so smooth and great. They come in a variety of colors.
Horrible and overrated! Extremely opaque and thick. And I hate the smell of their lip products.
I picked up a travel size jar of this at Walmart for $1.47 and I am glad I did. I really love the new flip top lids, they are very convenient. I still remember the old school containers, so this is much better and more attractive. I have been using these on my lips at night right before bed and it has worked wonderfully. I actually got the idea from reading someone's review on here (can't remember the person's name) where they said they used it on their lips at night. It stays for the most part till the morning, kind of depending on how much I apply, but then again I am a wild sleeper and I could be wiping if off on my pillow and not realizing it. But anyway, if I put on a little extra it stays longer. I wipe it off after brushing my teeth with a warm, wet cloth and my lips feel as soft as cotton and as smooth as butter. I love it! I'm glad I finally decided to buy this after I had sort of been stalking it in the bins for a while. I don't use it everynight, but usually every other night because I use a balm on other nights and I am not sure how harmful vaseline can be using it consistently every night. but still it's a great product for the lips, which is the only thing I use if for right now.
This stuff is greasy as hell. It took forever to absorb into my skin. I may as well have poured water on myself. I thought I was going to love this after stumbling upon this at Walmart. I got it in "Cocoa Radiant", which I am assuming is a richer formula of the regular cocoa butter kind. It's supposed to give your body a " radiant glow". Yeah okay, I couldn't see the glow from all the grease. It smelled fantastic in the bottle, but once I got it home and put it on my skin, Poof! The amazing aroma I had smelled previously faded away and on came the smell of pure petroleum jelly. I know this is a Vaseline product, but this is the body creme, not the jar. I was really let down by this. I kept smellling the area where I applied it just to make sure that I was smelling the right thing and sure enough the cocoa smell was gone. I feel like this product was very misleading. I will be returning this.

Gels/Soaps -Suave - Naturals Body Wash in Cocoa Butter
felissajohnson 1/30/2012 10:21:00 PM
Is cheap and feels cheap. This was a dissapointment for me. It's a very low quality body wash. It may as well be a dollar store off brand. It was not moisturizing, and did not leave my skin feeling radiant as I prefer my washes to do. The only possibly good thing about it was the smell was sort of nice.
Gels/Soaps -Bath and Body Works - Secret Wonderland Shower Gel
felissajohnson 1/30/2012 10:14:00 PM
I love this stuff. It feels great, smells great and leaves your skin nicely scented and silky smooth. Ironically, I am not too crazy about the lotion and body spray, they're just okay to me, but the shower gel is in a class by itself. It leaves such a wonderful aroma throughout your bathroom. The feeling I get after using this makes me smile.
This is a weapon. Literally. I am not joking. I no longer like nor enjoy this lipstick as I did at first. I wasn't aware that the glitter was so defined as first. That was until I actually cut my lip on it. Yep, that's right, this lipstick actually injured me. The shade is okay, it's not as dark as it looks in the tube. The glitter doesn't show up very heavy on the lipstick, but it's obviously abrasive, since I cut my lip on it, and I didn't glide it heavily, I generally blot my lipsticks on. I need to give this away but I don't want anyone else to become a victim of it. It needs to be destroyed. To the trash it goes.
