i found this at ALBERTSONS! and it looked soo gorgeous for like a 2-3 dollar nail polish. deep red w/ beautiful glitter. perfect for the Holidays
bascially same color on the lips as nars turkish delight except this has some very subtle shimmer which seems to make that milky pink color more opaque than the nars td. however, texture is diff, this victoria secret one (smells much better -- sweet scent) is stickier than nars, its not a sticky gloss but its just stickier than the slickness of nars td. i think nars is longer wearing, but this is pretty good. if ur debating if you want to splurge or not, this one is only 12 dollars AND there is apparently a drugstore dupe that i just found. the loreal le gloss in baby blossom, but you have to be careful, because i think there are two versions or batches of these, one is more peachy, the other that i recently found is more pinky and that's the one you want if you're looking for the dupe. loreal is 6 dollars (not as long wearing as either of the other two), victoria secret is 12 , and nars is 24. ALL THREE are baaascially teh same color, one may look more or so pink on hand swatch but on the lips, can't tell the diff (except victoria secret has subtle shimmer, but i think it makes it look nicer and more milky). one bad thing is that the packaging isnt that nice. it looks beautiful, but the hole for the wand to come in and out of is larger than normal and i tend to get product oozing out when i stick the wand in and making it look really dirty and unsanitary,

heard lots of rave about these blushes, i picked out this one and the bronzy amazon one, and i thought these were pretty expensive for a drugstore blush 10 dollars unless there was a bogo sale whih was y i bought both, i think specifically these two colors are for ppl with very fair skin. im light/medium more on medium and these do not show up on me at all, maybe it gives me a sheen highlight look which is definitely not what i was hoping for. ive heard the watchful owl is most pigmented, but i dont really want to buy anymore. for 10 dollars...i would rather add an extra dollar or two and get physicians formula blushes which are waaaay better, especially the happy booster one.

this has got to be the cutest thing ever! even thought its smaller in size than other pf stuff, that makes it even cuter. at first glance, i didnt think this would be pink, but more like peachy neutral color but its a cute pink with some sheen NOT sparkles. i dont have benefits coralista but i swatched it on my arm at sephora and looved the pinkish color it gave and this made me just as happy as seeing the swatch of coralista but...that doesnt mean its the same thing lol i wouldnt know. it smells elegant if you sniff it but you cant smell it on your face at all. SO CUTE and cvs has lik spend 10 dollars get 7 back in extra bucks, this thing was bascially 5-6 dollars if you count the 7 dollars you get back in store credit.
i was really excited to smell this gloss ppl so many ppl say bonne bell smells good enough to eat, but this made me feel sick...its lik u do get a hint of cappuccino but then tehres this weird sourish plasticy smell to it. i didnt think pigmentation was that great, it does nude out hte lips a bit, but not impressed MAINLY because i was expecting too much for the smell to take my breath away lol.
the best yellow nail polish ive ever tried, given i dont buy expensive nail that are over 4 or 5 dollars, there might be china glaze or opi yellows that may be better but this but ive tried many of the sally hansen ones, maybelline ones, and nyc and those yellows are always very thick and sticky hard to apply adn they like chunk up on my nails. this formula is much thinner, so you do need atleast 2 coats but its alot easier to apply and the color is such a cute pastel yellow not offensive to my already yellow tone skin. however you do need a top coat b/c it wears pretty quickly if u dont have the top coat. AND I LOOOVE THE NAME!

this stuff is some crazy moisturizing stuff. i cant use it too much if not i get break outs but when my skin is really dry using this once fixes it almost instantly. i was using a new acne gel that completely dried out my skin like sandpaper and nothing helped it and then i remembered this and used it and within one use my skin was a whoooole lot better. this should be called a treatment EDIT i lied. i used this thing up, every day and night ever since that crazy incident with the ance gel, i started to use it more. some reason my skin got used to it and i no long broke out even when my skin recovered from the dryness. it made my complexion flawless, healthy, and dewy yet did not feel oily! ppl noticed too and would ask me what i used, they thought i wore highlighter. i definitely notice a difference now that i am not using this product anymore. my skin is dull and oily, i think that moisturizer was so rich my face did not have to produce much oil. i really want to buy another one but it hurts to fork up another 80-100$ for this thing. my brother who is excessively oily and acne prone also loved it! it really controlled his oil as well, it just takes a couple days-week for ur skin to adjust to the richness of this moisturizer.
ah i absolutely hate this for my eyes because of intense creasing but i found better use! lol i put it on my lips and mix my lipstick or gloss with it to get that baby milky color, especially with pinks. fun stuff :D cuz i can get that milky color without the blue tone pink thats usually in baby pink colors since i can use any of my pink colors.
at first i had no use for this because it just seemed lik an extra layer of powder that i didnt need but recently i had some horrible skin problems with my new acne gel and made my entire cheeks superbly flushed in a horrible way and so i used this and it helps alot! my cheeks didnt look glowing red. ALSO this is the main part of this review. I usually use udpp but my shadows still creased pretty badly throughout the day and also i had lots of trouble blending my shadows after i applied the primer b/c its a bit sticky but i found that if i pat a thin layer of this powder over my lids after the udpp, it makes the shadow go on VERY smoothly AND i havent seen creasing for the past 3 days i've been doing this, so if anyone has this and doesnt really have a use for it, try it as a second eye primer!

very thick and kind of grainy, not smooth and hard to spread evenly on face, but I guess this is a spot treatment which is where i went wrong :/ i put it over larger areas of my face and now my cheeks are inflamed super pink and itches and stings all day. edit: ;( lol so i found out what i did wrong even more, I guess you're not suppose to exfoliate before using benzoyl peroxide? haha i used my clarisonic...if thats like exfoliating thats prolly why my skin is so absolutely horrid right now. feels lik sandpaper, so....everyone whos using this! don't exfoliate!!

i wonder if this is discontinued b/c i bought a long time ago at big lots in Berry Minerals. I'm not super crazy about the colors, b/c its like a reddish berry color (the darker shade) and the lighter shade is what I like, a pink/white marble color. so the colors are not to die for, but the finish is amazing. i use teh lighter one all over my lids and it seriously makes your lids look airbrushed! like so smooth looking. at first it will appear chalky and if u swatch it will look powdery and chalky but then after like a minute u look again and it looks amazing and really natural. good stuff
