Conditioner -Bumble & Bumble - Creme de Coco conditioner

This does a great job of detangling my curly/wavy hair so I don't have to mess with it too much after my shower. I will buy again because it moisturizes well...wish it smelled even more like Coconuts since i love that smell!
So, I really wanted to not like this because it's so expensive and I didn't want to keep buying it BUT I do like it. It just works really well at cleaning while keeping moisture in your hair. My hair gets super dry after dying..two washes with this and the conditioner and it was back to normal.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Glam Shine Liquid Lipstick [DISCONTINUED]

These are okay. I really like the sparkly colors but I do find them to be sticky and kinda gloppy so I use my soap & glory ones way more often.
So....It's okay. The first time I tried it I was horrified thinking what are these people talking about its so good?!?! but I put too much of the fibers obviously. The next day I tried a thinner mascara and used VEERRRY little on the tips and that was better, but honestly not all that different fron just using a good mascara. I don't know If I am going to keep it, I'll try a couple more times and decide. I am leaning towards trying the magic lash because it just looks better put together.
So, I found this at Ulta and looked everywhere and saw no reviews on it at all. I tried it because I knew if I didn't like it I could take it back. Well....it leaves my hair really soft and shiny but...no preservation of the curls. I have wavy hair so i was just looking for something to enhance and keep frizz away, this did an ok job but my hair isn't as voluminous. It doesn't smell good either-kinda like citrusy toilet bowl cleaner....but luckily that fades. So this might work for super curly hair that needs some control but for wavy hair-prob not a good product.
This one kinda smelled bad to me, I didn't get any sexy vibes from it if that was the intent. Not very feminine in my opinion.
Fragrances -Donna Karan - Be Delicious Fresh Blossom EDP

I don't knw what I was expecting when I picked this up to sniff it but it wasn't grapefruit. I guess with a name like blossom I thought more floral??? Anyway, not my cup of tea but it dries down nicely.
I really like this. I always hesitated to use polish on my hands because I can't always wait for it to dry properly and I would end up messing up a nail. With this my nails looked great and stayed that way after less than ten minutes. Got it on sale at Sallys for $4.50. edit- this doesn't work if you wet your nails frequently. I am washing my hands constantly because I have little kids and this chips after 2 days of this! I will probably return it to sallys for something else.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Blackest Black

This was the first mascara I used when I was 13...I've not used it since. The people who like this seem to lean towards more natural looking lashes...thats not me. I like long, dark dramatic lashes all the time. I have never asked someone what mascara they were wearing and heard "great lash" as a response so.....this doesn't give volume or length only color and curl. I don't know one person who uses this so I dunno how it ends up in all those magazines...I think we all have different definitions of what dramatic is, what my cousin thinks is too much, I'm like..hmmm, thats my first coat!
This is a cleanser how??? I do not feel clean when I use this, it doesn't remove minimal makeup so it makes me wonder if removes dirt or anything else. Feels like I am putting watered down lotion on my face...the stupid pump shoots out products like a super soaker in a stream. I hate it, never buy again.

I hate these shoes...they are so ugly, they remind me of the birkenstock fad where EVERYONE had to go out and buy them...please tell me why anyone in California needs them?? Especially if you're wearing them with SHORTS?!?!? Hellooo Pamela Anderson....tacky.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Wild Honeysuckle Body Spray

You know those scents that you try and think "Meh" while in the store but end up loving an hour after you've left? This was that one for me. I returned the new butterfly flower and was trying to choose between this and cherry blossom which I am still SO happy I got but I will return for this, smells reALLY good.
I am a big fan of Japanese Cherry Blossom so maybe this is why I love this one so much. I initially bought the new butterfly flower spray and it was just way to strong for me on dry down so I went in to exchange it and went through the store. I already had JCB so I was lookin for something else. It came down to this and honeysuckle which I will probably end up with anyway! this smelled the nicest while I was in the store, honeysuckle took a little longer to take to my skin. It lasts for quite a while which I love about their sprays.
This is perfect for those who like a little spice and kind of musky scents. It starts off pretty strong but the dry down is so nice! I could not stop smelling myself!
I LOVE this fragrance...i have been wanting it since I sniffed a sample over a year ago and finally got it recently for 30% off on the larger size! I will never get tired of it it is so soft and feminine...smells great on most people.
