This is a beautiful, silvery jade metallic green. It's light and subdued, yet a knockout shade. I saw this right away and had to have it.
Wow. This pencil is incredible. It is the deepest Jet black, and has a cream-powder texture that makes it incredibly easy to smoke out in five seconds-- and looks like you have movie star smokey eyes. Just stunning. This needs to be part of the permanent collection-- the texture is what makes this pencil stand out!

Oh, this is just gorgeous. I love the color-- a bright true red with shimmer. And the topcoat is stunning. I love the topcoats on these-- I have "Mirror" from the very first longwear collection, and it's gorgeous all by itself. Same with these. This is loooovely. (Also, I love how you can pull out the topcoats to mix and match!)

This is a gorgeous black cherry long-wearing color. Love the matching gloss! It lasts almost TOO well. The stuff wouldn't come off until I rubbed some coconut oil on my lips!
I think that this line is about to become defunct, but the colors are actually great for my purposes. Me and my sister both have ash blonde hair naturally (mine is about a level 6 ash, and hers a 7.5/8 ash) but whenever we put haircolor to our heads, it eventually turns brassy! No matter WHAT. And usually red. However, she has used this line to cover red/brass, and it works wonders. I also tried it for this, because I just went to an upscale hair salon in Providence and asked to have my natural shade deepened to a level 5 neutral brown. Instead, she accidentally put in a level 5 red! Their color mixing room is tiny and DARK, so it's understandable how someone could get a 5B mixed up with a 5R, but still. I paid good money. Instead of getting pissed and demanding it to be fixed, I decided just to go home and color myself (anyone, and I do mean ANYONE can use single-process color, so... seriously, why waste more time/money at a salon that messed up in the first place? Plus I've been coloring my hair at home for ages). I picked up 100% color in Deep Brown, shade 401. It didn't have ammonia in it, so that was a plus. I used it this morning, and voila! No more sherry red color. Just a beautiful, deep brown. And wow, my green eyes really pop.
I love this deoderant! I don't sweat that much, so I don't like using aluminum based antipersperants. I thought this was a great natural deoderant. My pits smell nice, like apricot soda. Mmmm. Will repurchase!

I adore this body cream. I have used a LOT of body creams in my time, and this gel-cream consistency is wonderful. Despite it having a light consistency, this stuff IS really moisturizing, and if you let it sink in overnight it works wonders. This stuff is fabulous and I hope it never gets discontinued.
Lovely stuff! I got this on sale for 5 bucks, and it's gorgeous. It leaves my skin dewy and healthy looking. Plus it's oil free with SPF! Gotta love that.

I LOVE this moisturizer! I've found that now that I'm in my twenties, my skin needs more moisture than it did before, and this moisturizer is great. It makes my skin feel even and soft and not greasy. It's very light but very effective, too. I've used tons of face lotions ranging from low end to high end, but this is hands down the best.
I HATE this scent. It smells like an ash tray on me and almost everyone I know, with a little bit of old lady and cat pee thrown in there. I love BPAL, but this is one of my least favorites. I can't imagine how this is their best-seller.
I love this fresh little blend. Very summery and lovely. I have to disagree with the reviewer below, this scent is much more sophisticated than anything Bath and Body Works has ever produced. I got this scent in a small imp size. Eventually I will purchase a full size of it. I love it!
I was sent an imp of this from my friend, and I tried it. Immediately, everyone asked me, "what is that AMAZING smell?" I wasn't too sure I loved the scent (even though I love Queen Bess I) but since I have gotten compliments on it, I will definitely repurchase in the future. It's also grown on me a lot.
I LOVE this conditioner! My hair is fine and straight but this stuff smells so pretty and summery, very aquatic without smelling manly. The conditioner itself works very well but doesn't weigh my hair down at all. It's lovely. I haven't tried the shampoo but I do also use the waves of envy spray. The fragrance is really what keeps me happy. :)

I can't believe more people haven't commented on the WONDERFUL smell this product imparts on the hair. It smells like pure summer. Very aquatic without smelling like ozone or men's cologne. I have straight hair but I like the slight wave and texture this gives my hair. I don't find this spray to be drying at all. Very nice product. I can see why people complain about it not having enough hold, but I prefer that to the crunchy hair look. This stuff definitely won't make your hair crunchy unless you use WAY too much.
Great quality, cute colors, awesome for a night out.
