I got this gloss at the semi annual sale today at VS, and it is amazing! Perfect texture, and no scent! I found the only Lippy Nude they had left and snatched it so fast! It was $4 well spent! I don't know if VS will continue to carry this line, but I sure hope they do!
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Inara Babassu Lip balm
lissaSBC 6/30/2007 12:16:00 AM
This is the best lip balm that I've ever tried! It keeps my lip soft all day! It's perfect for winter, but I use it in the summertime as well it's not super heavy. And the vanilla scent is not generic or smells fake, it smells like real vanilla, very soft. The balm gives my lips a bit of a sheen, so I don't need lip gloss. This balm used to be availabe at lipmedic.com but now you can purchase this at www.inara.com it's $12 but the tin has lasted over a year now, so it's worth the money!
Lip Gloss -MAC - Lipgelee in Lilacrush [DISCONTINUED]

I love this gloss! It's not too sticky but manages to last, most of all it looks fabulous on me! It makes my lips look nice and plump. Also, the smell is sooo good, I'd eat it if I could. This brings out the natural color of my lips and it's so natural, I can wear it to work. Also the applicator makes touch ups w/ out a mirror so easy. I know I'm going to use this tube up fast.
I got a sample of both the gel and the cream version in my Glamour magazine, I have to say my fave is the cream. This is the best eyecream I've used so far. It can be worn under makeup, it absorbs quickly, leaves my eye area soft and supple. Plus it's not greasy!

Great product! This saved my chapped lips this winter. I kept reapplying Vaseline and it didn't seem to do the job like it normally does. So I bought this and it is amazing! My lips are soft and I also using it as an eyecream at night to keep my eye area soft. I bought the smaller tube (1.75 oz) but I have a feeling it will last for a very long time. All you need is a small amount and you're good to go! UPDATE: I've rediscovered this again it is possibly the best lip balm ever at night. I wake up and my lips are smoother even more so than when I use my Inara lip balm. Love it! Plus it doubles as a nice lip gloss for me with a nice sheen and not super shiny.
The color was so pretty, but unfortunately all the shimmer in this made my lips itch so bad I had to wipe it off. It's also greasy and runny. Sorry, but this is going straight to the garbage.
I love, love this stuff! I was looking for something that I could wear everyday and doesn't cost a lot of money (compared to the high end stuff). I read the reviews on this and was skeptical cause it looked like the color wouldn't work for me. I bought it anyway and tried and absolutely loved it! Gives my lips a healthy pop of color, makes them look smooth and sexy. If I want to wear this in the evening I just darken the color up with my MAC BBQ lip pencil and I'm good to go. I highly recommend this for those on a budget, and looking for a gloss that isn't sticky.
I love this gloss! I ordered it from Sephora and couldn't wait for it to get here. It comes in a 5 inch tube and has plenty of product [0.29 fl oz.] for $17, not bad. I've bought glosses in the past that are more expensive with less product. The color reminds me a bit of MAC's Lovechild lipgloss, just sort of a lighter version of it with more pink and less plum. I am addicted to the scent, it's scented like angel food cake. The texture is very different, it sort of smooth like a balm, but with the coverage of a lipstick, it's not sticky so the lasting power isn't superb, but it's pretty good. It can last through a meal and drinking a beverage. I don't mind reapplying because I love the scent, plus there is so much product it's not like I'd finish it fast. This gloss also moisturizes my lips and makes them look even poutier. Highly recommend, I would love to try out more colors, I just wish they made a nude color!
I went to BBW and looked for this based on the reviews. I love this stuff! I thought at first it would make my lips turn a hideous fuschia color but it instead brought out the natural pigment of my lips. It's $5.50, not bad at all. It also does a great job moisturizing my lips. This is what I hoped EL Amber Bronze Berry lip tint would be!
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - VitaGloss O2 Moisture Stick Simply Strawberry

I love this stuff! I went on my drugstore run at Sav-on and found this! I love the light shine and the moisture. I think I will buy another tube to have incase this runs out! Not bad for the price, under $3!
The only color I have ever tried out of the sheer lipsticks. It makes my lips look full and pouty. The lipstick is moisturizing like a balm and rich color, that makes your lips look gorgeous. The only downfall is that my lipstick broke, but this will not stop me from buying it.
I love this lipstick! It's probably my favorite formulation of the lipstick line. It is so moisturizing you will never need to put a lipbalm underneath. The only downside is that my tube broke, but regardless the quality is superb and the color lasts long. I bought Hush, and I couldn't find anything like it in MAC. Hush is a nice neutral, kind of like pinky brown with hints of purple. It makes your lips look very full and sexy. This does not have the nice vanilla scent the lip lacquers do, but from what I can tell it is odorless.
Cleansers -Senna - Skin Infusions Fruit Smoothie Refining Cleanser

I received this as a free sample from one of my many Senna orders, this is a very nice cleansing scrub. It sudes up and has a faint smell of oranges. The scrub is very gentle, but may be a bit drying for some (my skin is oily) so I recommend to follow up with a moisturizer. My skin began to glow right after the first use. This is pretty good stuff, if I find something cheaper, this will be my staple for a while. Retails @ $28 for 8 oz.
The website describes this color as a cool pink, to me it seems to be a nice neutral pink with no hints of brown. I love to put this gloss over my lipsticks because it makes my lips look full, and smooth. Also after the gloss wears off (it lasts so long, it might take a while) it moisturizes your lips. I can't wait to try the new colors from Senna.
I agree with the previous reviewer. This is a beautiful color, and you can wear this gloss with minimal touch ups. I wore this gloss when I was out with a friend, and it lasted through the entire meal, and then some! This gloss totally kicks MAC's butt!
