After all the snow and ice this is the perfect pure sunshine scent to make me think happy thoughts and get me through until spring is finally here. I got the body cream and the shower gel and both smell realllly nice , the scent lasts a decent amount of time too, I may have to get the perfume or the body splash. They have shampoo and conditioner as well but I haven't gotten that far yet.
Pressed Powders -Cover Girl - Outlast Pressed Powder [DISCONTINUED]

I've started wearing foundation for more mature skin and while it does help my skin look better it also tends to fade quickly so I've been looking for a powder to help hold it in place and this Outlast does the trick my skin looks great all day. Very natural looking while providing excellent coverage .
I have to agree with Duncan,, it does go on nicely and stay put but it did the same with my lines they actually seemed more defined than before which was scary..lol as I like to delude myself that my creams and lotions are working to get rid of them so it's off to find a nice older skin foundation. If I were in my 20's I would love this stuff.

I used to wear this years ago and found myself buying it with my gift card this year I just love it,, it's not overly floral really but more of a classic retro type scent I think maybe orange blossom is the scent I pick out the most. I get tons of " you smell good" comments from the guys mostly though it is pretty strong so just a few little sprays will do you.
I despise going into this store, I will ocassionally venture in for the semi annual sale because any other time the prices are outrageous , it isn't that I can't afford to pay it it's just that I won't,,any major department store has a nice selection of lingerie at lower prices and equal or better quality, I've even recently purchased some pretty nice reasonbly priced stuff from the once taboo Fredricks who was once known for sleazy and cheap, I have two nice corsets and they weren't all that expensive. That and I never like going into a store where at least 2 associates stalk you ,, I have the same feeling about Bath and Body Works but I like their products enough to tolerate the associates. I know they're just doing their jobs but it makes you feel like you're on a car lot instead of a pleasurable day of shopping.
Awesome set of lots of neutrals that anyone can wear,, they apply nicely, have shimmer w/o being gaudy and last all day w/o a primer, there are honestly no colors in this box that I can't wear though the purpleish ones on the right don't work quite as well for me as the rest of the bux but a steal for the $$.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Exotic Coconut

well I've gotten a few compliments once I've had it on for awhile I tried the bubble bath, the body butter and the spray,, really didn't smell at all like coconut when first applied though very much like plastic or something else chemical and owie the lotion realllllly stung when lotioning more delecate parts even if you just got it on your inner thigh it burnt horribly other place ,, I've never had a lotion do that,,

I've gotten so many compliments on this particular scent I have it in the body wash and the lotion, men especially seem to like this scent. It's different I like it :)
eh,, I had gotten the caramel pear and wasn't super crazy about it so I thought I'd try this one and they really smell very much the same , just didn't do it for me.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Exotic Coconut body splash

Wow yeah,, this is one of those,, wish I'd have read the reviews first things, unfortunately I bought the bubble bath, body lotion, mist and EDT,, quite a few of them smell really plasticy,, I wanted something warm for fall but now I eye in envy the Cucumber/Melon set I gave my mother for christmas that she never used when I visit and wonder if I should ask for it back..lol
wow! I bought two of these one is the Pink and it looks pretty natural on me which is nice for daytime and I got the Cherry which I'm not sure is a cool enough red for me it didnt' look BAD but wow does it last, I woke up this morning after a night out and it was still there but came off nicely with makeup remover ,, what I really like about this is that it doesn't ball up or feel like you're wearing anything ,, I will def. buy more of these. ooh and I didn't have any red lipstick on my straw which is just amazing..
I'm 33 and have been washing the gray out of my hair for years now I normally use a reddish blonde or a light auburn and typically after 2 weeks it's faded to a light strawberry blonde but this glaze has helped me to not only not fade for a month but my roots are barely visible and it's soon time for my haircut/color.. now I can't use the Radiant Red shampoo/conditioner I did try that before and it really dried my hair out so I use a different line for that and a deep conditioning mask once a week.

Like others have said the base coat is nice it grabs your lashes with a primer and makes them full but when you comb on the black top coat all the fullness goes buh bye and you're left with very long yes,, but what looks like fewer lashes instead of full lashes..
Def. not Cocoa,, but very Christmasie I think it's a bit more pine than chocolate.. I like the scent,, the lotion is okay but the pump takes forever and much effort if you plan to use this on your whole body so I'm not sure I'd buy it again in this type of container,, also for the $ I'm not overly impressed. Nice scent though ,,
I'm melting,, melting,, don't seem to be one of those that can get this to last in a few hours I'm back to looking shiney,,
