I love honey...works amazingly well for my skin and hair!It keeps my sensitive-combination-acne prone skin clear and glowy and my hair super shiny!And it's dirt cheap!It may be kinda drippy and sticky and nasty the first few times,but after a few applications,you'll get it right.
Eyes -Urban Decay - heavy metal glitter eye gel in backstage

This green glitter is a bit prettier than the Mullet liner,in my opinion.This is a gorgeous kelly green mixed with gold in a clear base,just like the original glitter eyeliners.I'm wearing it today for St. Patrick's Day,and it looks so good!
Oh man,this stuff SMELLS BAD!P-U!!!And for stretch marks...hahahaha..what a joke!Doesn't do anything to help prevent or fade them,all it succeeds in doing is leaving you stinky!My b/f wouldn't go near me if I had this on,lol!
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula

Gross!This is without a doubt the nastiest,STINKIEST lotion on the market!I can't believe so many women love this stuff!When I used it,everyone I knew HATED the smell,and I almost held my nose whenever I rubbed it on!Don't know if it worked or not because it just stunk,period!
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure

I've been using this for a little under 2 months now,and it's great!On my face,it leaves it glowing and smooth with NO breakouts...however,if I don't use a good moisturizer right afterwords for my patchy,dry wintery face,it doesn't really moisturize well on it's own.On the rest of my body,I apply the oil while my skin's still damp from my shower,then apply some lotion and my skin is SUPER velvety soft!Even my bf noticed a big difference and can't keep his hands off!The trick to getting the best out of this is to put the oil on first on damp skin,then AFTERWARDS put the moisturizer on!The bottle may drip everywhere,but it's still worth the $7 I pay!
Styling Products -Rusk - deepshine phyto-marine lusterizer

OMG,this stuff rocks!I put just a small amount in my damp hair,blowdried my hair upside down,and my hair looks AMAZING!It hasn't looked this good in over a year!!My hair is softer and shinier now using this than back when I used to use those clear hair glossers,you know,the thick gunk in the tiny bottles?Well,this stuff has made my hair a HUNDRED times shinier than those clear glosses ever did!I can't stop looking at my hair in the mirror,I can't believe it looks so darn good!Maybe tomorrow I'll try it without blowdrying and see what happens..
This is one of the best lotions I've ever used!I'm amazed!It leaves my skin softer than velvet,and I can't keep my boyfriend from touching my skin!At first I hated the smell of this (and the Calming Night soap),but now I loove it..the smell actually relaxes me and helps me sleep!I hear they might be discontinuing this...bummer!
I've been buying the Platinum version for about 7 years now (I refuse to buy any other Secret deodorant unless it's a Platinum,the rest suck!),and I really like them.I think at one time or another,I've tried most of the scents,but my favorites are Optimism (don't know if they make that anymore),and Shower Fresh,of course!I think in all the years I've used this,it's only let me down like twice,and those times I was SEVERELY stressed!It's never ruined my tops like so many women on here claim (hahaha),and I almost exclusively wear black..you'd think if it were to mess up or discolor any clothing,it would be black clothing,but nope!7 years,use it everyday,and my clothes are fine.Yes,it's kinda hard to scrub off in the shower,but that just goes to show you how good this stuff is working!The only flaw I can think of in this is the white residue (I wish it dried clear!)Works SOO much better than Dove (HA!)...some of my friends use Dove,and they end up smelling funky at the end of the day,while I still smell great!
I don't think I'd buy this again..like the other reviewer,I got suckered into buying this at my Ulta.I wanted something oil controlling that could take the place of my beloved Estee Lauder Double Matte powder,and this was recommended...it's around $25,so the price was right.The black compact is really ugly,uninspired,and boring.The makeup itself wan't all that,either..I got mine in the lightest color they had,Porceline,because of my milky white skin,but when I put it on,wet or dry,it had this yellowish-tinge to it that made me want to hurl it in the trash.(I have pink undertones,not yellow.)Peformance wise,it was very heavy and matte looking,kinda obvious and cakey,and didn't control my oil at all.Greasy within 20 minutes.
I got this tonight,and it's a really a bright,vibrant light green.Even with UD Primer Potion,you still need to layer it on a quite a few times to get the full brightness and shimmer of the color (which you ladies know about if you've used Milani e/s before).Kinda reminds me of MAC's Springtime Skipper.Very pretty,and cheap too!Definitely would buy again!
HAHAHA,this is the worst moisturizer in the world--pure and utter crap!My Gramma uses this,has been using it for as long as I can remember,and she looks amazing...I use it and I look like a greasy pepperoni pizza.I needed a heavy duty moisturizer because the harsh winter air destroyed my skin,so I decided to buy this out of desperation.It's VERY thick,so naturally,you think it's gonna work...well,all it does is sit on top of your skin,not absorbing at all,looking like a big pile of bacon grease!It DOESN'T moisturize!My face is actually DRIER and my patches are scalier now because of Ponds than before using.And to add insult to injury,it gave me the worst breakout of my life,which I'm STILL recovering from,(it's been 3 months,WHT in this crap?!)Two thumbs down,Ponds sucks!
I LOVE Superstay!So far,I've tried Raisin (a brownish pinkish),Flame (bright red),Cabernet (another brownish pinkish),and Wine (another red).For everyday wear,I like Raisin the best...it's beautiful with a reddish glitter like shimmer.I bought Cabernet tonight after seeing Raisin was sold out,and Cabernet looks almost exactly like Raisin,except with no perty reddish shimmer.Wine is my favorite for night or dressing up...it's the PERFECT pinup girl red,just perfect!Flame is an OK red,but just a tad too orangey for my liking.I want to try the lighter colors next...
Lip Treatments -Aveeno - Essential Moisture Lip Conditioner with SPF 15
slicedbread13 2/26/2007 8:46:00 AM
HAHAHAHA,this is the worst lipbalm I've ever used!It says it has shea butter and jojoba oil in it,but it doesn't moisturize AT ALL!Aveeno products just suck,period!Can't believe I spent $3 on this,lol!
Lipstick -Naturistics - Miss Kiss Lip Plumper in Kiss Kiss
slicedbread13 2/22/2007 7:02:00 AM
Love this listick!I normally don't wear such muted natural shades,(especially in a non smudge-proof,non semi-permanent,REGULAR everyday greasy lipstick..I like my lipstick to LAST)!I've recently gotten into heavy eyemakeup,so I had to tone down my lips.Since it takes FOREVER to do my eyemakeup nowdays,I wanted something quick and easy to speed things up a bit,but also somewhat natural looking and dirt cheap that I can I just pick up at the nearest drugstore..I found it in this!Yes,it's greasy,yes,it comes off on everything,but it's regular lipstick,what do you expect,lol!
Hmmm,this stuff smells so GOOD!Like oranges!Even so,I wish there was a 'maybe' option on whether I'd buy this again...when I first used this a few years back,I had bleach blond,overdry and overporrous hair.I remember not using it because at the time my hair needed a more moisturizing S&C,and this stuff doesn't moisturize worth squat.Since I no longer color my hair,maybe I'll try it again.
