This mascara is good, but not my HG. My eyelashes are on the average-short side, and are really really straight. What I loved about this product was that it REALLY added volume AND length to my lashes like BAA-YAAM. However, it didn't hold my curl AT ALL. Which, evidentally, kind of kills the fact the amaaazing length and thickness of my lashes after applying it. I usually just do a coat, cause the more I do, the less it tend to curl. I have to admit, even though it wasn't waterproof, it sure seemed like it! It lasted the whole day without flaking! Not even through my 2.5 hour practice! I have to say, I LOVE the packaging. Big yellow and boldly purple. The huge brush gets all my lashes for sure, but was a bit hard to work with at first. Hm, about the smell. It was a bit overwhelming at firsst, but then it like, disappears when you close the bottle. It's definitely fake roses, but as it didn't really bother me. Go try it out!
It's nothing special. Whereas I do love how it extends my eyelashes like BOOM aaand manages to make it look like they are naturally that way, I find that it comes off easily, so by the end of the day, I would have a light smudge of mascara underneath my eye. Also, it didn't really volumize my eyelashes like I wanted it to. I didn't find it to be clumpy like the other reviewers said.
On the site, they describe it as "Deep, herbal base notes and light, citrus overtones, this fragrance is a great special occasion scent, or a fun every day scent. Feminine and fresh." If your idea of fresh is like a stall in a public washroom, go for it. I literally poured half a bottle of Britney Spear's Fantasy over my wrist after testing this out at the store. I was with my friends and saw a whole line of Demeter fragrances and tried them out on whim because of their names. Thank goodness for Fantasy!
I like the idea of it, but the sweetness just ruins the whole thing. It has the fruity concotion of the drink- but again, this fragrance is so sweet that it made me want to puke. Thank goodness I was only trying it in the store!
Loved the packaging, but thought that the content itself was rather average. On me, the tuberose overpowered the coconut, but was still a nice scent. Next time, I would just go for more So Pink.
Out of the there in the GAPscent collection, I have to say that I like this one second best, after So Pink. Dream is like a lighter- and much more pleasant, mind you- version of Heaven. Dream is much younger than Heaven, and is more floral, rather than musky.
I love it. There's something about that I just can't put a finger on- that makes me love it. Although I despise musky scents on myself, I find them to be soo sexy on guys, and Brit definitely has that muskiness. It's very woodsy, yet spicy, and the cedarwood and nutmeg are very noticeable, all in a good way. It's a drop dead sexy scent, and I can't get enough of it.
This is a fragrance that you either love or hate. I think that it's a difficult fragrance to wear- it really depends on your body chemistry and how it mixes with this scent. The bottle itself is beautiful, but the pump sucks. It usually takes me a second spray to get the perfume to spray properly. After the first spray, I could smell a musky vanilla, chocolate, and heavy florals. Normally, I prefer clean, citrus florals, but this was surprisingly appealing. Actually, it reminds me a lot of Briney Spear's Curious, only...different. There was somehting about it- I can't put my finger on it- but there was just something so intrigueing about it that I couldn't stop sniffing myself. Later on, the vanilla died down, but you could tell it was still there. As for the licorice part, well personally, I have no idea what licorice flower is supposed to smell like anyways, but it's definitely not the same scent as the candy (thank goodness!). It got sweeter with longer wear, but not to the point where it was unbearable. The only reason why I wouldn't purchase it again is because I wouldn't use this on a daily basis, but it is a nice scent. Smelling the scent makes me feel dreamlike and phantasmic, like a character in a fairy tale.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers - Tapestry Taupe

I never use taupe. Actually, I had no idea what 'taupe' really was, until this anyways. This colour is strange in a good way! At first, it showed up as the same colour in the box, but then throughout the day it turned into a more silverish colour (on me)! It's quite a nice shade, though. I love love loove how this shadow will also give me a naturally smokey look. This eyeshadow does a fabulous job of staying. My whole dance team uses it and competitions can go on the whole day long, and they actually stay on the whole day! Oh, not to mention that there's actually a bit of product in a single box-ish thing (which might I mention, absolutely SUCKS), it was only like $4!
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Lip Butter - Mango

Heavenly mango smell! Though other users said that this didn't moisturize very well, I found it to be alright. Or maybe it's jsut because I always lather on my lip products. Either way, the amazing scent makes up for all its faults! It's a good product overall, but I wouldn't buy this one again; I'd be getting the Passion Fruit!

I started off using the Born Lippy in Passion Fruit, but I bought this one accidently and I LOVE IT EVEN MORE! It doesn't do the best job at giving my lips moisture, but that passion fruit smell is just soo yummy! I would buy it again just for the scent. I didn't get the film mentioned by other users, but maybe that's because I rub my lips together so much that the film just melts.
Lip Gloss -The Body Shop - Born Lippy Exotic Passionfruit Lip Balm

The packaging could be better, but the heavenly passion fruit scent makes up for it. This lippy was only allright when it came to the actual moisturizing, and it left me um, thirsty? It did give me a pretty, sheer, pink colour. Like a kick to my natural lip colour. Liked this, but wouldn't buy it again; I would buy the Passion Fruit Lip Butter instead. That one smells even more amazing!
It's a nice scent, but I prefer the other editions of Dolly Girl-Dolly Girl on the Beach, Ooh La Love, or Bonjour L'amour. This product is very pretty and girly and leans more towards the floral side of fruity floral, and I prefer fruity florals.
I'm personally not a fan of the Dolly Girl bottles, but I do love the scent of them, and this one is no different. It's like the original Dolly Girl, only more playful and fruitier. Love it!
Super cheap and comes in pretty good colours, too. However, I HATED the packaging. The stupid cap kept on falling off and got lipstick over all the stuff in my schoolbag! Not to mention that ended up cracking later on, too. It's a good lipstick. The colour I bought was 409B Fragile Pink. I have olive skin and pigmented lips, and the colour ended up being more of a frosty bronze than a pink on my lips. I still like it though!
