I'm surprised by the fact that I wasn't crazy over this-considering that this is always a top fave in the beauty mag's. I hate the smell of this and the consistencey is a little too goopey for me-it melted in my makeup bag! Not impressed and didn't do anything special for my lips.
This is a really great gloss! I love the sheer shimmer it gives my lips-plus I love the minty flavor! There are days when I don't want a bare lip but don't want color either-and this is when I use this-it's casual but very pretty= ) Took off a lippie b/c I feel it could be a bit more moisturizing but it's still a great gloss!
I was looking for something warm & summery and wanted something different then my standard pinky blush-so I tried this and I'm very pleased with it! It's a light & warm peachy color that works well with a bit of bronzer. Nice texture and sheer, very comfy to wear. Looks natural too!
The 1st few seconds I was applying this I really liked it-then when I was finished I was disappointed. It does lengthen and dramatize my lashes but for some reason makes my lashes clump together in sections-weird! Then it was messy trying to get them apart. Also, I hated the applicator "brush"-more like a dangerous stick! UPDATE: Ok-So I think I just had a bad 1st experiance with this and wasn't used to the brush, but now that I've got the hang of it-I LOVE this stuff! I guess all I needed was practice b/c now i'm a pro and my lashes look perfect & fabulous!
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Quench Body Lotion-normal to dry skin

I LOVE THIS LOTION! This is the ONLY body lotion i've ever bought a 2nd time. It's not that other body lotions are bad, it's just that they're "ok", they don't do anything special. So I get bored and try new ones. The Olay Quench however, is so hydrating and moisturizing! The scent is cheery & light and leaves behind a subtle golden shimmer-very flattering!!! I have dry skin and this has gradually made it better-will buy this over & over!!
WOW! I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW GREAT THIS IS FOR MY HAIR!!! I like high-end hair products and I was sick of paying those prices and seeing just o.k. results. I decided that since I love Dove body products, why not try their hair product line! So I picked this hair mask up and from the 1st time I've used this my hair has been so healthy looking, silky, managable & soft!! I have naturally curly/frizzy colored hair, that I also blow out straight & falt iron! And this is THE ONLY product that makes my hair look flat ironed and shiny right after blow drying-I still can not believe Dove is the only product that has SAVED my hair, I get so many compliments on how healthy & shiny my hair looks! Lovely scent too! My 1 wish is that it came in a squeeze bottle instead of a tub-but who cares when the conditioner is this good!!!
A really lovely scent! Smells like spicy & sweet with hints of rose-a classic scent-I use this when I don't want to smell summery or to strong & heavy-just a classic lady-like fragrance!
OMG-I LOVE THIS FRAGRANCE!!!! I first smelled this in a mag. ad-then I tested it at the store-blown away but how much this appeals to me! My husband gave me the stamp of approval on this(he's hard to please w/ perfume). It's like a tropical island in a bottle! Mocha & Cocunut and salt water-This is hands down my FAVORITE summer fragrance!!!!
A very nice concealer! I typically use Lancome-but needed something more portable & less creamy for my purse-So I tried this. I can't believe how blendable this is even though it's not as creamy as others. Perfect match and perfect coverage-very happy with this!
A lovely frosty coral/peachy color, Very summery and flattering! Perfect for when you don't wanna do the typical light pink but want more than just a sheer gloss, love it! I actually sometimes wear this with the Petit Four gloss for an extra punch of color, will re-purchase!
Hair Color -L'Oreal - Preference Shine Extending Hair Color

I've tried Garnier, Clairol etc..(all which have given me ok if not disappointing results). I have a 2 year old and taking the time to go to the salon sometimes isn't an option-I needed something I could do at home when he naps but look like a "salon quality" hair coloring, and WOW did I get that!!! I had med. brown hair with heavy highlights and wanted a change so I purchased this in the Medium Copper Brown-and the color is RIGHT ON THE MONEY-it's soooooo pretty = ) I can't tell you all the compliments i've been getting! My only complaint was the smell is very strong-so open a window! But who cares when you hair color is awesome. Also, the shine this gave my hair is unbelievable! And the conditioner that comes with this is so creamy & hydrating-it lasts for a few washes too...UPDATE!!!! The haircolor does not last as long as this should(and I don't wash everyday either)faded so quickly-so disappointed b/c I fell in love w/ the color-oh well!! Guess i'll keep searching...
Disappointed with this EXPENSIVE foundation. You have to use a foundation brush with this and have to brush for a while before it's completely blended in. I used this in Parchment-and while it was light weight and had a nice creamy texture, It didn't provide the coverage I was looking for. I have some redness in my t-zone and 2 blemish scars that it barely covered. Settles badly also. NOT WORTH THE $$!
Concealers -Lancome - Maquicomplet (Complete Coverage Concealer)

This is such a great concealer! I love the creamy texture of this-it makes it easy to apply & blend in. Looks natural and covers any darkness and redness of the skin.
Ok-Although I'm a HUGE Mac fan-I have to say that this is un-impressive mascara. I still have a whole tube left & i'll be giving this away. Obviously I wouldn't buy this again. It did nothing for my lashes-didn't lengthen them or give them any volume, very blah!
A flattering light goldish/frosted color. I wanted something different than the typical frosty pink color & so I bought this. I have tanned skin and I love this on me.
