Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Vanilla Coconut Passion
sleepyhead2 9/27/2007 3:35:00 AM
This was sold out at 2 different vs stores. Finally, I was able to get my hands on one! This smell exactly the same as Alyssa Ashley's coco vanilla edt, that just came out in drugstores. This is the perfect blend of sweet, creamy coconut and vanilla. It smells delicious and I think that foody lovers would enjoy this immensely.The pink bottle is pretty cute too, and I am sucker for cute packaging. I took off one lippie because it is a LE.(why oh why do they pull this crap?!!) I bought an extra one as a back up,lol.
oh my gosh, I really like this scent. As soon as I tried it in one of the magalogs, I knew that I had to get my hands on it! It smells exactly like lemon bars! I can actually smell the powdered sugar on top, tart lemons and baked crust. Lemon Sugar is yummy! However, I didn't give it 5 lippies because of the lasting power. I can hardly smell it, less than 10 minutes later :( I would still repurchase this because while it is on, it is scrumptious!
This isn't my favorite garden scent, but I do like it and enjoy it when I wear it. Other reviewers put it the best, it truly smells like jello and whipped cream,,,, Yum! It isn't as overly sweet and cloying as love spell (thank goodness), and the strength and staying power is pretty decent as well.
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - With Love by Hilary Duff

I will admit, that because of the name of this fragrance, i was put off by even trying it. I thought that it was going to be some fruity teeny bopper scent by yet another celebrity. (although i do love Britney Spears fragrances). However, I decided to try it in the store, thinking that I would not like it at all. I couldn't have been more wrong! I fell in love with this scent immediately. It's so grown up, a gorgeous vanilla, woodsy, floral and slight musk. I have not smelled a perfume even similar to this, so this is pretty original. I just got a huge bottle in a swap, and although i never finish them up, I can see myself using this one up and repurchasing. I spray this on my hair, my clothes, everywhere!! I Love this scent, so gorgeous and the bottle is lovely. Very sophisted and looks nice on my vanilty.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Planet Spa -African Shea Butter Whipped Body Balm

It is really hard to put my finger on what this smells like exactly. Definately buttery, teeny bit chocolatey, vanilla and some coconut, maybe? At first, i was a little put off by the smell, but have come to really like it. The texture id really neat. It definately looks whipped in the tub, feels silky going on , and is more like a thick cream. It dries quickly, doesn't leave a greasy film and feels like it really sinks into your skin. I really like this and hope it is around a long time, however this tub is going to take me forever to use up.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - sexy little things body mist
sleepyhead2 5/22/2007 2:20:00 AM
This is a fun and flirty scent. It is a fruity floral, that reminds me of ralph lauren's Ralph. In fact, this much smells pretty much identical, to me. I love the fact that this is the mist version, which gives me much more product. My boyfried even commented that it smells really nice. It's a great spring or summer scent.It is a pretty, girly scent, but a bit generic. The lasting power isn't very long, however. A couple of hours, tops. There is a button on the bottom, that makes a purring sound everytime the bottle is picked up. i thought that was endearing at first, however, having carried it in my purse all day, and it kept purring every few minutes, it got annoying. Not to mention embarrassing, when i was in the ladies room. lol. well, it is now dismantled and i can just enjoy the fragrance freely.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci - Sugar Wafer Lip Gloss
sleepyhead2 5/22/2007 2:10:00 AM
I really love this gloss. It feels really good on, very soft and silky on my lips. It leave a very pretty shimmery shine and the scent is amazing. It reminds me of sugar cookies-yum! Because of this gloss, i just HAD to have the edt. I am a bit late in the tutti dolci line, so of course, now that i fall in love with this, it is no longer available :( You are such a meanie, bath and body works!
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Creme Femme
sleepyhead2 5/22/2007 2:03:00 AM
Beauty Rush glosses are one of the best, affordable lip glosses out there, i think. I am really addicted to these. I wore creme femme for a week straight, that's how much l like this one. at first, i couldn't put my finger on what this tasted/smelled like, although it was really familiar, like BBW vanilla bean noel. then, duh, you would think the name would have helped me realize- creme brulee! Just like it- a delicious, carmel, sweet creme brulee dessert. It does have a "burnt' smell to it, but it grew on me. This is one of my favorite beauty rushes, next to oatstanding and cupquake. My only gripe is the amount of shimmer in this, it is more like silver/gold sparkles. so, took off a lippie for that. but overall, i need to get a back up of this one, seriously.
Eye Shadow -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Luminous Shadow in Jet Set
sleepyhead2 5/22/2007 1:49:00 AM
I have been on a desperate (and fruitless) search of my holy grail eyeshadow (discontinued cover girl eyeslicks in midnight metal, down to a 1 inch nub lol). I spotted jet set and swiped it on my hand and was so happy. I thought the color was identical, a shimmery silver/steel shade, and immediately bought 2. Well, when i applied it to my lids, the lovely shimmer was non existent. It looked black, slightly grey, and dull. It was hard to blend and i just couldn't get this to work for me.The color would fall and looked racoonish. It is such a dark color, which i imagine could be nice for a smoky eye, but as mentioned, the blendablity was nill. The concept is cute, and nice built in sponge applicator, but this shade is just awful. I would definately buy this product again because the other colors look really pretty, but definatlely not in this shade.
Lipstick -Clinique - Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick - Berry Berry
sleepyhead2 5/22/2007 1:38:00 AM
This looked so good on me at the clinique counter, however, when i got it home, not so much. First of all, it is a matte formula, and completely dried out my lips and not even a hint of shine(i know, it's matte). The shade in the tube is really pretty, but on me, it was a pinky/coral frosty shade.It seems as though this product "travels" and settles around the lip line. I tried to make it work with darker l/l, to tone the shade a bit, but to no avail. Took this one back and fell in love with rum kiss, which looked great on at the counter AND at home. lol
Conditioner -Regis - Design Line Olive Oil Conditioner
sleepyhead2 5/22/2007 1:30:00 AM
Hands down, my favorite conditioner. I stopped using cones in my hair and was searching for something with that kind of slip, that cones had. This is definately it. It makes my dry/damaged (flat irons, highlights, lowlights) feel really soft and most importantly, healthy. It smells really good, reminds me of bubble gum. The only reason i give this 4 lippies, not 5 is the price. I go through tons of this stuff and rely on the huge 2 liter size. They don't have this on sale all the time, and the smaller bottles are too much $$ for the amount. However, when the big bottles come out on sale, i think that is the best deal.
Lipstick -Clinique - Color Surge Butter Shine Lipstick in Rum Kiss
sleepyhead2 5/22/2007 1:20:00 AM
I love this lipstick, i think i could marry it. lol. This is the color i have always looked for and finally found it, it compliments my skin tone so well and brightens up my whole face. It is a nuetral pink/brown with a hint of mauve and gorgeous shine.It is definately one of those my lips but better shades. The sleek silver bamboo packaging is so cute! When i walked out of the clinique counter, my boyfriend said this was the best lip color i have ever worn, and i have many! i will buy this again and again, as this has become a staple for me.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush- Oatstanding
sleepyhead2 4/28/2007 10:00:00 PM
This is my favorite my favorite lip gloss that I own, and i have tons. The color is so gorgeous, a red with shimmer, not so much like you would have glitter all over your lips. Very subtle, but very flattering. The scent is yummy! Like oatmeal cookies straight from the oven. I have heard this is getting d/c(oh i am piping mad about that!!), but thankfully i have a back up in this. Beauty rush glosses in general are fantastic and is a very good price.
I love this product. definatley has been one that i have repurchased many times over the years. It does what it says, takes off those dead skin celss, and makes my feet feel so smooth and soft. A huge plus is the price, soooo cheap! You can actually feel the real pumice in this, like you are using an pumice stone, but much nicer and great smell! In fact this was BOGOF one day and i had to snatch this up. This is one and probably the only product i have, that my boyfriend likes to use. He says, can you hand me that foot scub stuff and i'll even catch him using it on his own. lol. he even asked if they made a shower gel in this. Which is funny, because he is definately a guy's guy. This scrub is a hit!
Of all products(yes, all!) i have ever tried or used, this is the absoloute worst! First of all, there is virtually no scent. Amazing Grace is my favorite perfume, but this soap does not even have a hint of that scent in it. It smells like a very bland bar soap. Performance wise, as i was "cleansing", it felt dry and harsh. So dry, in fact, that my cute little pedicure i had done a few days ago, it had made the polish have a very wierd white film on it. Upon finishing my shower, my skin felt "stripped". The only plus i will give this is the cute philosophy box it came in, but nothing more. Dove works 10 times better than this and has a much nicer smell, and costs tons less than this useless product.
