Too powdery and old lady for me. I do smell the floral in it, but the powder just kills it for me.
I can't buy this simply because it would end in a divorce due to the price! However, it is a nice perfume that smells strongly like honeysuckle and/or lilly. My husband like it~he said it smells very fresh. It added to the headache I was getting at the time, but I think any perfume would have at that moment. It is, however, a little too sweet/floral for me.
I tried for the longest to figure out what this smell reminded me of...I think I've got it! This is like wrapping yourself in freshly laundered soft towels that have come right out of the dryer. I bought this without even pre-smelling it, just cause I like Alfred Sung stuff and I got a deal on it at TJMaxx. I'm so glad I did, it lasts forever on me without being too strong, and the scent just makes me oh so happy.
I originally smelled this Irish perfume on a lady at church. It was the best scent I had experienced in a long time. I finally broke down and bought the edp from ebubbles.com. I absolutely love it! It is a fresh floral, which usually isn't my style, but this is so different from everything out there right now. Top notes are lemon, lily of the valley, bergamot. I can't remember what it said the middle notes were, but it includes patchouli as a base note. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't last on me as long as I would like. I may get the lotion to remedy that!
So sad, I was really hoping this was my perfect color. It is just a little washed out on me. It is not enough color for me to bother with. Maybe a paler person can wear it!

Love it! This and Blackberry Bloom are my HG's in lipgloss. It is kind of a sparkly wine color on me, without being too harsh. I can layer it to be really dark if I want to though. The consistency is great because it doesn't disappear too quickly like most lip glosses. There's also no smell/taste, which is a major plus for me. Very nice, hope this one sticks around!

I guess I'm one of the few that loves this thing! I don't care an itty bitty purse, so the size doesn't bother me that much. Yes, the brush sucks, I will agree with that. But it's nice to be able to touch up my makeup. I haven't had the leakage mentioned previously. Great item!
Just okay. It does seem to help my hair style easier, but it's not enough of a difference for me. As with all Pantene products, I love the smell.
I liked this the first few times I tried it, but after about a week, I couldn't tell it was doing anything at all. Still love the smell though.
It makes my hair shiny and healthy looking. However, it adds absolutely no body, and I always have to add more product to my hair to make it do anything. Smells nice, though.

Fabulous everyday color! It gives just the right amount of color without being too dramatic. I like the consistency, even though I usually like the gooier Clinique plumping line. It has the perfect amount of shimmer. Walgreens had this marked down to 1.98 a tube~SCORE! Oh, I took off a lippie, because unlike everyone else on here, I don't care for the taste/smell.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine in Blackberry Bloom
bethwalls77 6/17/2007 8:00:00 AM
This is my everyday color. If you have medium skin, dark hair and lightly pigmented lips, you need to try this!!! It lasts pretty well for a lipgloss, and even as it wears off it is a pretty color. The shine is great, and the plumping effect is pretty good. This is the only lipgloss that I have consistently gone back to over and over again. I love it!
I bought this in hopes that it was like Fawn Fatale in the Endless Wear version (which dried out my lips too much for my taste). This color is similar, but it's too light for my medium tan skin and lightly pigmented lips. It's definitely a pretty color, just not on me!

Although I wear cool colors by nature, this color is too cool for my skin tone. It has a silver purple sheen to it that kind of does weird stuff to my skin color. On the plus side, my mom said it makes my tan stand out (?) I don't like the taste of this lipstick either, but I don't pay much attention to that. Oh well, I'll keep searching.
This is a great eyeliner, even for a dark haired girl like me. It is less harsh than black~great for an everyday eyeliner. It doesn't last quite as long as Revlon Colorstay, but it does a good job anyway!
