Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Refreshing Body Mist in Vanilla-Coconut Passion

I love this scent! I wear it after using the matching shower gel and body lotion. It smells like a nice yummy mix of vanilla and coconut, although I do notice more of a vanilla hint to it. Either way, it smells delicious!
A co-worker was wearing this the other day (with the matching spray) and after smelling it on her I HAD to have it. My local VS was sold out of it so I had to order it online. It smells so yummy, just like the name sounds. I do sense more of a vanilla scent to it than coconut but I love it. It's a nice foody scent for the cold weather. It does a decent job of moisturizing my dry skin. Big rave from me!!!
This is a bright red polish with a bit of a shimmer to it. It reminds me of I'm Not Really A Waitress. I love it! I just put in on my nails and it looks great. This is one of those year round shades that would look nice on almost any skintone.

Yummmm! This is a sweet foody scented body lotion. It leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated and smelling great! I'm so glad that this is out again this year. I got the matching 3 in 1 to use along with the lotion.

This scent is out again this year because I just got one! BBW had a coupon promo going on so I picked this out for free. This is a yummy sweet foody scented body wash. It lathers up nicely and leaves my skin feeling nice and hydrated. This is a great fall scent.
This isa nice bronzer. It is a bit dark for my skin, though, so I have to put it on very lightly. Once I do, the color is light and natural. Overall, I am pretty impressed. It hasn't bothered my very sensitive skin and it does not make my skin oily at all.

This is a light champagne/beige shadow. It has the slightest hint of brown to it. This color looks nice as a wash. I like the texture and the staying power of these shadows. I have tried 3 so far and I love them all!

This is a pretty champagne color with a bit of a shimmer to it. It's almost like a frost color without being overly so. It kind of reminds me of my MAC Phloof eyeshadow. I love this shade as a wash color. It looks great with just about any other color. The staying power is great and it goes on nice and silky smooth.
I LOVE THIS COLOR!!!! Someone at work started selling Avon so I've been buying from there. Retro Peacock is a stunning deep dark green with a tiny hint of blue. It has a fine shimmer running through it. I've been using this for the past few days and I love it. It has amazing staying power and is dirt cheap. I'm normally not an Avon fan but this shadow is worth a shot!
This shade is a medium to dark frosted plum shade with a bit of a shimmer to it. It's pretty basic but I like it! It stays put for a long time on my nails without chipping off and has a nice shine.

Ick. Hate this. I have wavy/curl fine hair (pics in profile). I normally use L'Oreal Tightly Wound but decided to try this. Big mistake. It seems to have no hold at all. It just makes my hair sticky and feel gross and coated. I ended up tossing it.
This is a clarifying shampoo. I wear my hair wavy/curly a few days a week and I need something to remove all the gunk (mousse and gel). I love this!! I only use it maybe 1-2x a week max (any more than that would ruin my hair). It leaves my hair feeling shiny and looking very bouncy and healthy.
I bought this with the matching conditioner. I have fine wavy hair with some curls mixed in. This shampoo and conditioner really brings out my natural waves and makes my hair shiny and healthy. The bottle says that it enhances the natural curl pattern, who knows if that's true - but my hair looks a lot more wavy when I use this.
I will be purchasing this again for sure!
This is a pretty pinky peach shade that looks like a natural flush on my cheeks. It goes on nice and even and stays put all day. I'm shocked that this has held up so well. The SA who was ringing me up at the store I bought it from dropped it on the floor. I was mad because it was thelast one in the store and I thought it had shattered on the floor. Wrong!! It didn't break! Yay!

This is one of the best mousses that I have ever used. I apply it to soaking wet hair and scrunch it a bit before I let it air dry. This mousse gives just the right amount of hold without weighing down my fine hair. It makes my curls bouncy and shiny without the crunch feel to it. It also doesn't make my hair stringy like some other products did. It is a bit pricey but well worth it, IMO.
