I love this fragrance! It's woody and spicy and sweet. However, the chocolate smell does not stand out on me at all, it smells more ambery. This is the fragrance I've been craving. The bottle is beautiful. It smells so natural and not artificial. The staying power is amazing. It lasted all day! It is a complicated scent that changes (or at least on me) First, it is spicey like chai, then it gets kinda soft and ambery, then it finishes out as woody and seductive. Also, I do find that men are more attracted to this smell than ladies. It is very "womanly". I can't stop rave'n on this one.
I love this stuff! It is so much better than the Body Shop's :it's richer, smoother and more fragrant. Also, it is very cheap. I've went through 5 of these and I still love that rich smell. It leaves my skin feeling so soft. I could rave on this all day....
This stuff is so chalky and gross that it makes Covergirl appear like Chanel in comparison. The color is so boring. It applies very sheer on me, but not nice in a highlighter kind of way. It just leaves huge glittery like flakes. I am very disappointed with the product because of its substandard quality : chalkiness, no pigment, and ruff texture. People, you can buy Covergirl shades that are better than this and alot cheaper. This shade is generic and effortlessly replicated.
I really like these shades because they are neutrals that can be glamed up. However, this product is very expensive and the packaging is such a rip. The first day that I bought this, the glue seperated from the compact and the shadow fell out. The curved applicator has got to be a sick joke. Who would ever use that? I wish that it didn't even come with one. Whoever designed it should be fired from the Lancome team. Anyways, as far as the 2Sexy colors go, they are nice, long lasting, and smooth, but I'm sure I can find a cheaper alternative.
I was so excited when I found out that this scent was coming out. I'm a huge fan of pina colada scents, well pina coladas in general:) There I was the day it came out, rushed to the new display only to have the first huge disappointment of the summer. This scent is so fake, too much pineapple and not enough coconut. It's too artificial sweetener. So, I stick to my Queen Helene Coconut body lotion and spray Demeter Blue Hawaiian over it.

I love rich scents: coconut, chocolate, vanilla. So, I love this. It has great staying power and smells kinda chocolatey floral. I got this for steal $12 because this frangrance is 50% because of the semi-annual sale. Overall I'm happy with this frangrance, I just hope it's not being discontinued.
I hate how this shade looks nothing like it does in the pot when it is on the skin. It is very chalky and I use lots of MAC eyeshadows and none have had this problem. It doesn't blend well and it goes on the skin a mucky, not bright teal color. Every color I mix it with ends up looking greyish and dirty, MAC Orange, Chrome Yellow, Bitter. Reviewers keep calling it "bold " and "exciting" but it is everything but that. It is boring and I feel that I waisted my money becaue I wanted a bright, pure pigmented electric blue. I'm not shy with color. I've found Milani blues that are what I want, bold and pigmented, for $2.99.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes eyeshadow in Cornflower

This is a true shimmery "cornflower" blue that looks great mixed with teals and golds and I'm sure alot more once I get playing in it some more. This stuff is so cheap that I can't complain about packaging or anything like that. I reccomend this shade because it is exciting like a MAC shade but 95% cheaper.
This is the only shade that I found interesting in the Belle Azure collection. It's a super shimmery green with yellow undertones. I love the smooth formula and the shade works with many colors: golds, coppers,blues and teals, other greens like Bitter and Swimming and UD Acid Rain and Mildew (can you tell I'm wild about greens), greys and purples. I just do not like the "limited edition" tacky and cheap looking bronze packaging. It always ends up flaking like it was painted with a cheap metallic spraypaint or even worse it breaks. I wish I could get it to fit into my pro pallete instead.
I finally bought this shade after looking at it for many times. I'm so happy that I bought it. It is highly pigmented and better than anything coppery that MAC makes. It looks great within its own monochrome color family and with greens and blues (gives a very scarab look) and with purples and grey, steel shades. I love this formula and I love this shade because it has many uses.
Bronzers -New York Color - Blushing Bronze Creme Stick

This is a really great deal, cute Stila-like packaging and sheer, wearable, shimmery bronze coloring. The formula glides on smooth. Bonus, it's portable and it's only $2.99.
I've been using this serum as a nightly moisturizer. It cleared up past blemish redness like overnight; however, after a few weeks I began to notice that my pores were being accentuated on my cheeks. I've never had a problem with that before. So, I quite using it and the enlarged pores were gone. My husband loves this stuff. He got into a really horrible bike wreck a few weeks ago. Now that his wounds are closed, he's been using this serum on his scars (face and arms) and it is so helpful for that. It is really helping out with the discolorations and general scar appearance. Everyday it looks so much better than the day before. Vitamin C aids in cellular regeneration. I don't know if his sucess with this serum is because his scars are new. I'm not sure how it would work with past scars.
I was attracted to this product because of the large clear, lucite-looking packaging and of course the shade of the blush. This color is very pretty in the pan, a true peach, no shimmers, no glitter, just a matte true peach. The blush has SHEER in the title, so it is sheer. I love the scent, just want to get that out of the way. I'm pale and when I used this it did not show up. I had to layer and layer until I would end up looking kind of dead and muddy. I would have to layer Nars Orgasm over it to look alive. OK, so fast forward into the future... I've spent a week in FL and I now I have a warm tan, this blush looks great on me now. It shows! I wear it under Nars Laguna and it looks so natural. So strangely this pale, sheer shade is not for pale girls.
Fragrances -Demeter - Golden Delicious Pick Me Up Spray

I really like this fragrance because it is crisp and refreshing. It is a bit artificial smelling, but I like that smell too. Think Apple Pectin shampoo. I would wear this more often, but it seems to fade so quickly.I layer it over body lotions and it still goes. It is a joy to sprit but 30 minutes later I have no idea where it went.
This is a great fun fragrance. It is so mouth-watering and yummy smelling. It smells like peaches and oranges. It is so refreshing and I'm wearing it out this summer! Also, it seems to linger a little longer than my other Demeter fragrances.
