Not a winner in my book. Quite a few people rave about this scent, but I must be missing something. I think it's way too heady. One of my coworkers douses herself in it after each of her smoke breaks and it just reaks through out the office. (This could be what turned me against it). It smells a little like Jessica McClintock to me but is way sweeter. I think it's just too harshly floral.
This scent is ok, but I'm not too crazy about it. It's different. Very heavy on the spice. I hate that plastic box container too.
I absolutely loved the color that I purchased (Violet) which is a dark wine color, but didn't like how dry it was. It didn't go on very smooth. I shouldn't have to put a flame to the tip of my lip liner to make it creamy :(
I really liked the color I purchased (Desire) a shimmery mauve/lilac shade, but was dissappointed with the texture. It was so drying to the lips. It felt like dried Wite-out on my lips. Sure, it stayed on but the feeling was horrible. It felt like my lips cracked when I smiled. I won't buy another one.
Antique Gold is a very pretty shimmery gold that I use as a highlighter shadow. It really accentuate the rest of my makeup. When I use just a smidgen on the center lids it really makes the eyes "pop". Antique Gold is the exact shade of Mac's Juiced and Amber Lights eyeshadows.
I love this color because of the small flecks of glitter in it. I use it as a liner on my top lids and it looks awesome. The formula wa surprisingly rich with great color pay-off. It's a very affordable alternative to MAC's Black Tied which I hated. Ebony is better!
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

Very good product! I like the scent (mildy of Noxema) and the texture (not too harsh). I use it once a week and just love the way it makes my face feel (very smooth).
This is the only mascara that I'm satisfied with. The package may say "one coat", but you'd have to apply more than one coat to get the desired thickness. Since I wear contact lenses this mascara is perfect because it doesn't irritate my eyes like the other brands. It's long wearing and doesn't clump.
This is my favorite eyeliner. It goes on smooth, is long wearing and doesn't smudge. Since I'm a contact lense wearer I have to have eye products that wont irritate my eyes so this eyeliner is perfect. And you dont have to sharpen it since the tube is retractable. I use Precise Black.
I wasn't thrilled about this product at all. I tried Chroma Camel (light beige) which looked awful on me. It didn't shine and it faded too quickly. Another thing that I disliked was the squeeze tube applicator. I prefer wands. The only thing that was wonderful about it was the lemony-vanilla scent.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Moisture Therapy Hand Cream

I know this is hand cream but I like to use it all over. It is really effective in combating dry skin and helps to lock in moisture. I used to have problems with dry itchy patches of skin on my legs during the winter but since I started using this hand cream I haven't had a flare up. I also use it to give my feet a silky smooth feeling. The smell is quite mild which is good because I don't like for my body lotion to clash with my perfume.
A must have for smooth feet. I love to slather my feet in Vaseline followed by a pair of socks after a nice pedicure. It does wonders. oh! It's also great for chapped lips.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Foam Cleanser

I don't normally have problems with Neutrogena products but this Acne wash really dried parts of my face out. And when I used moisturizer afterwards, it burned. I guess my skin was just too sensitive for it.
I purchased Romance one day in desperation of not going home empty handed while shopping for a new fragrance. Out of all the scents I sprayed, I kept going back to Romance. Partly because of all the great reviews I've read. I quickly grew tired of the fragrance after only a couple months. You'll only need to spray one pump of it or you'll end up choking to death. The fragrance is a nice woodsy floral but not my favorite. It's rather boring, so I don't reach for it as often anymore. Nothing unique about it.
I thought I liked this scent because I'm into musky type fragrances but after wearing it a couple times I quickly grew agitated with it. I like the fact that it's light with a hint of floral but it smells like butter. It just turns me off now. I ended up giving it to my niece.
