This mascara is generally too subtle for me unless I am going for a barely there look. I don't find this does much in terms of lengthening or volumizing. To me this is just a whatever mascara - def not high impact like the name suggests. If you like a super natural look this might work for you, but i prefer a little more drama so I wouldn't repurchase.
This is a cute product, but it's not incredibly moisturizing and the color payoff isn't amazing. I would rather use a more moisturizing lip balm or a more pigmented lipstick. I purchased this in 09 heaping hazelnut, which is a slightly shimmery sheer nude.
I used to really like using this cold cream, but lately this just doesn't excite me anymore - perhaps due to the changed formula? I used to use this for makeup removal sometimes, but I don't feel like it is effective enough in removing my eye makeup. Also, while this is moisturizing, I dislike the filmy residue it leaves on my face after I've wiped it clean. I've never been a fan of the packaging for sanitary reasons. I'll probably use up the one I have now for nights when my skin is feeling dry (to heavy for daytime use IMO), but I probably won't repurchase.
This is perfect for in between washes. I use this in the blush scent and i find that it has a nice fresh scent that isn't too overpowering like a lot of other dry shampoos I've tried. This goes on white, but simply run your fingers through your hair and it absorbs well. This absorbs oils really well and keeps my hair looking clean between washes and really helps me wash my hair less which is great. I've repurchased this a few times and will continue to as i find it is more reasonably price than others i have tried.

Love the smell - I'd describe it as musky with notes of vanilla for sure. Overall very comforting and classy, non-offending scent. Plus pairs nice with most perfumes and fragrance mists. Moisturizing quality is great - absorbs well and has great lasting power. I think it's my favorite VS scent so I would highly recommend.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil Free Moisture - SPF 15

Average moisturizer. I like that it is oil-free and doesn't make my acne prone skin break out. But while this is moisturizing enough for the oily parts of my face it isn't for the drier areas. Plus i think it smells too much like sunscreen and doesn't absorb into my skin well. Will no repurchase simply because their are better moisturizers out there for around the same cost.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Sweet Mint

I admit i bought this because i was drawn to the packaging. After using it multiple times in an attempt to like this i have to say this does nothing for me. The packaging is actually pretty annoying because i can't keep it in my pocket or else i get this weird bulge (not attractive) and the balm itself has a slightly waxy texture that just sits above the lips and doesn't actually moisturize. There are much options for lip care so i will not be repurchasing.

This smells delicious. Super girly and noticeable, but not too strong. I wear the cream (not the lotion) paired with the matching fragrance mist and have received many compliments. I find that the scent pairs well with many perfumes as well. Plus i like the cute pink bottle:)

I love this scent so much. Super girly and has great lasting power. I prefer the cream over the lotion as i find it much more moisturizing. One of my favorite BBW scents and pairs nicely with the matching fragrance mist. This isn't overpowering, but it is noticeable, which i love. Plus the bottle is super cute.

I was really excited to try this after reading all the great reviews and I'm glad i did. This is the perfect day cream for my combo skin - it's not too oily for my t-zone and it's perfect for moisturizing the dry areas on my face. It does contain mineral oil so I was skeptical, but I have yet to see any problematic breakouts. It also has a slight fragrance, but it doesn't bother me (it smells kind of fresh) and it hasn't irritated my skin. It's fairly inexpensive so I would recommend trying this out!
Cleansers -MAC - Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser
melllm 10/12/2012 5:48:00 PM
I like this for taking off my makeup prior to cleansing, applied with a cotton pad. This works well and I like how my skin looks slightly brighter after. I do prefer my MAC eye makeup remover over this as it removes stubborn eye make much better. This is classified as a cleanser but i would say its more of a makeup remover or a toner even. This works well for me after cleansing too if i feel my face isn't clean enough after using one of my cleansers.
Good basic cleanser. I usually remove my makeup before hand, but this is still quite good at removing makeup, just not so much for stubborn eye makeup. This leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. Not irritating for me and hasn't caused me to break out. I generally prefer a pump in terms of packaging though. I took off one lippie because if i use this everyday my skin becomes a bit dry. For reference i have combo acne prone skin.
I bought the pink one in hopes that it would be a nice tinted lip balm but this leaves my lips dry, the color settles into the lines on my lips instantly, and if I was going to use this I would need to apply every 5 minutes. It was cheap so I'm not super disappointed, but I do not recommend.
Great product to have on hand and probably one of the better blot papers i have tried. The sheet size is bigger than most blot papers, which allows you to easily cover your face. They remove oil well without disturbing my makeup. I especially like the packaging because sometimes you can find them in LE and they are super cute.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy
melllm 10/12/2012 5:23:00 PM
This review is for the moisturizing dry scalp shampoo. With the colder weather approaching I have been experiencing some dry scalp issues. Most shampoos at the drugstore were solely for dandruff so I opted for this instead. After one use, this did work well in moisturizing my scalp and I didn't find my scalp to be as itchy. It is a cream formula so I was initially worried the product would weigh down my already fine hair, but to my surprise it didn't. Sadly I can only give this 2 lippies because IMO the smell is just so overpowering that it was giving me a headache all day long and I was wishing for the next day to come so I could wash my hair again! I've never had a problem with any shampoo smelling so horrific - it was if I had soaked my hair in cheap, stale perfume. So unfortunately I will not be repurchasing - which is too bad really because this seemed like it would improve the condition of my scalp.
