This is my HG liquid foundation! This was my very first liquid foundation and I've been using it ever since! It comes in so many shades so it's very buildable and it blends so easily. It provides a light-medium coverage and is perfect for one of those days where you want to look and feel natural. I prefer it over all of my other foundations!
Fragrances -Pacifica - Brazilian Mango Grapefruit Solid Perfume
oxnicoleox3 7/15/2010 2:00:00 PM
I got this for my birthday from my best friend. It's the first solid perfume I've ever owned. I'm terrified to carry around my actual perfume bottles in my purse on the go in case the bottle breaks, so this little tin is perfect. It's a very creamy texture that blends easily on your skin. It smells exactly how you'd imagine mangos and grapefruit together. Definitely a summer scent. The only downfall is the lasting power, which is like a body spray. But it's so cute and compact and easy to reapply that it's not a bother. I'd use it for a quick run out since it doesn't last all day.
A bit too citrusy in my opinion. I'm not too impressed with the packaging and it's expensive for a EDT. If you like bold citrus scents then this could be for you. Definitely a summer scent. I don't think it has very good lasting power. It would definitely be fresh and clean if it wasn't so strong. It would be better as a softer scent.
When I saw this at a yard sale unopened for $3 I knew I just had to have it. I don't really like the way it's dispensed though, although it's orginial. I would be happier with a plain squeeze tube or pump. It has a gorgeous pink color that as it claims, actually does brighten your face. I notice a difference in my skin's complextion when I put it on and makes my makeup last longer. It's a so-so primer. I wont buy it again though because I wouldn't splurge $28 on just a primer with the amount of product it has. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, check out Rimmel's primer, it also has a tinted pink color to brighten your skin.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Diamond Strength Antique Bronze

Such a gorgeous bronzy color! I usually don't like wearing neutral colored polishes, but this one is fabulous! It's now my signature color for the summer, it looks like a polish you would wear tanning on the beach. It definitely stands out in a croud!
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
oxnicoleox3 7/12/2010 3:10:00 PM
I use this everytime I give myself a manicure to push my cuticles back. It smells just like lemons and it has such a creamy and buttery texture you know it's great for your cuticles. It's not greasy and it feels so hydrating, like a body butter. It's amazing!
I love this mascara! As soon as you put the priming side on you instantly notice thicker, longer, and curly lashes. I've used this without using a lash curler and I find that it still give you curly lashes that hold throughout the entire day. If you're looking for a mascara that will hold your lashes' curl, this is it!
Lip Treatments -Carmex - Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm
oxnicoleox3 7/12/2010 3:03:00 PM
I am one of the few people who absolutely love all the lip products Carmex makes. I came across this and had to try it. It's different from the original formula since it smells less like vapor and does not leave a tingly feeling on your lips. It smells good and has a creamier texture. My lips felt instantly hydrates. Great product for a lip balm or lipstick base!
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Pink with a Splash FRESH & CLEAN
oxnicoleox3 7/7/2010 8:11:00 PM
I usually don't like body mists just because of their lasting power. But, I was interested in having one from the Pink With a Splash line. This is definitely the best one. Like the name, you do actually smell Fresh and Clean. I am addicted to this stuff. I put so much on me and I just can't help it! It's a stronger body spray so the lasting power will probably be stronger than typical body splashes.
Let's just say I wasn't a huge fan of this when I smelled it a year ago. Weird, I know, but it brought back memories of when I was a kid of the smell of those liquid bubbles you dip the wand into and blow on it to make bubbles. I also had the original Juicy Couture but I didn't like it too much. Way too floral for me. But, after I continued to smell it in department stores I realized it wasn't so bad. It's sweet and light, which I love. Signature summer, girly scent. Only downfall, no surprise- the lasting power. :( I don't know if I'd repurchase because I love my scent to last throughout the day.
Great! Good for day time. It's a very preppy scent. It's less masculine than the other A&F perfumes. It's somewhat sweet. Definitely clean and sporty. It's a little expensive. $40 for 30 mL, but I still love it!
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser
oxnicoleox3 5/17/2010 11:56:00 AM
I had the one in the orange bottle, and as soon as I put it on my face, I noticed it smelled amazing! Some people say it smells bad, but the orange one smells like a peach! I massaged the scrublet on my face for about two minutes and it left my face feeling so clean and refreshed! It immediately left my face so soft. Love it!
I'm probably the only one that doesn't like this perfume, but that's on my body chemistry. I usually love the smell of apples and fruit. It smells so fresh and clean. I got a sample of this from Boscovs and when I wore it, my friend said I smelled like Nair hair remover. When I smell it, it smells too chemically or something to smell like apples and fruity.
Skincare - Body -Palmers - Cocoa Butter Formula jar
oxnicoleox3 5/4/2010 8:51:00 AM
I love this! I love to use it for an overnight cream because it's way too thick for the day, it leaves your skin looking greasy but it's just because it's so rich. It's ultra moistrizing and the BEST smelling lotion I have ever used. Amazing!
Disgusting! I saw some YT gurus with some of JLo's perfumes, and I decided to smell it. I wish I hadn't! I should have never trusted a thing that she has made. It smells like overpowering grandma soap. It's not fresh and clean, just gross! It burned my nose and made me want to gag. EW.
