very nice conditioner, it really does leave your hair soft and smelling fantastic. nice texture and 'feminine' smell. however, for conditioning purposes alone - feria deep conditioner works faster, is less expensive, and although it doesn't smell as great - well, we all use perfume anyway, right?

cheap, moisturizing and lovely smell. no color, and you can't wear it uder lipstick
voluminous waterproof is a great drugstore mascara - it thickens and lengthens a HUGE amount. indeed, its only flaw is that if you aren't careful to wipe the brush before you use it - you can get clumps. does not isrritate contact lens wearers, and stays the day. i prefer it to the old standby great lash anytime.
a solid but not special amscara. in waterproof it stays the day wihtout smudges, but i didn't notice much curl. i perosnally prefer waterproof voluminous- but like this enough to use it up before purchasing something different

RAVE i keep coming back to this as my old faithful everyday lipstick. moist, natural, and universally flattering. is the 'your lips but better' shade that deserves every rave its received. they should never ever discontinue this one
a good quality deep conditioner - but for the money, i think feria gives more shine
luxurious lather and smells good - but for the price, it should be more moisturizing. a good moisturizing shampoo - but not a great one. i'll keep looking. . .

This stuff is great- better than burt's in my opinion, and rivaling philospophy kiss me and kiehls in moisturizing. its a stick that is soft but not greasy, with SPF. and cheap! whats not to like?

got the translucent and WOW it really faked nice glowing flawless skin. but it took some trial and error to get there - first, you cannot use this over foundation, but only over bare skin . second, the little brush is cute but useless - use this with a regular big fluffy powder brush and enjoy your soft-focus skin.
liked the cute package - but it went on blue. BLUE!
no matter how lightly i put it on
I got the Who's the Gloss in a swap and i *love* it - the colors are great and the texture and shine is also nice. in fact, in color and texture these are like a much more high-end line. indeed, my only complaint is the cheapo plastic packaging, because the lid doesn't stay on very well in a purse

LOVE this. for folks for whom its not working - did you break it down between your fingers before applying it? if you don't, it just sits there on top of your skin doing nothing and feeling like crisco - BUT if you warm it and break it down before patting it on - miracles, people, real skin miracles. my acne scars faded, my pores look smaller, my skin is soft, and no breakouts. *sigh* if only it weren't a gazillion bucks.
great cheap mask for when you have the oilies. the scents strong, the color ugly, and its drying - but hey, when you have the oilies drying is wht you want!
good basic lip balm - neither amazing nor awful. also, pretty cheap. however, for a basic lip balm in a stick, i'd go with the neutrogena norwegian one - cheap, nonwaxy, no taste, and SPF. and for a splurge - philosophy kiss me or kiehls have my hearts
