Incredible smell... like frosting on a birthday cake. The smell fades in less than 5 minutes though, so if you want it for staying power go else where. If you want it for fun fun fun at home! Then look this one up, best smelling lotion I own, and I own more than I bother to ever want to list. lol
oooo my substitue to the expensive Estee Lauder Pleasures Intense that I love so much. This smells wonderful like lilac's in summer growing up. Can't get enough of it, my fiance always comments on it when I'm wearing it. You can't go wrong with Goddess it does fade gently by the first couple hours of wearing it though. definetly a 9 out of 10 for me.
Oh so many foundations have I tried. Ladies and gents alike if you need coverage, I mean real geniune I have BAAAD skin help me. This is the product for you! I have had horrid skin in recent years from redness, scars, blisters akin to acne and oiled dryness all at once. This is the best foundation I've found. Classic Ivory is my perfect skin tone match, on a normal day all I need is this and blush and I'm all set on the worst of days, just a cover stick under the bad spots this on top and a bit of powder dust with blush and I'm ready for my close-up. lol Amazingly smooth and dries so evenly. Very opaque not thin and watery. Love it! Boughten it time and time again now. A+++ Holy Grail foundation for me.
This isn't as pigmented as the other reviews would make you think. It's a whitish pink tone but it's more of a wash with heavy shimmery irrdescent effects. It's not bad but it's just nothing I'm in love with like stunning glow of nymphette or the color I get from cavalier but if you want to look shimmery for a date or a dance put this over a long wearing lipstick and you'll look dazzling. It's not at all gritty which is a big plus with me! I can't stand feeling grit on my lips, just a smooth slightly tacky lipglass which is what I like with that famous tasty frangrance that you only get from MAC cosmetics.
My holy grail at last! A day in day out product I can wear everyday without worry! It's perfectly pretty and perfectly natural looking on me! GREAT for going to work and looking polished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looooooooooooooovvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeee itttttttttt!
These are the BEST eye shadows on the market hands down! Trust me I own several brands of makeup... Jane eyeshadows are good for drugstore brand, well most of them, but the MAC ones are definetly worth dropping 15 bucks on once in awhile. Building up a collection over time just because I don't make that much money. Definetly recommended for highest quality and highest pigment and ease of use. They cover evenly and perfectly in all my experiences and last the day/night away!
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Electric Intense Lip Creme

The quality of the product is incredible. Covers evenly and smoothly. Not drying while your wearing it. It's not too seepy either like overly creamy lipsticks can be. It stays where you want it to stay and almost has a lipstain like quality to it so it holds up decently well while drinking a cup of coffee. Just be warned to try the testors out! Some of the mauves may end up looking more brown on you than you realize. I'd definetly look into this line again, I don't mind the trademark fig scent that Estee Lauder uses it grows on you. Also no taste with this product, I hate it when lipsticks give you a nasty taste, this one is a gem!
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Estee Lauder Electric Intense Lip Creme - Mad Love

I enjoy lavendar shaded lipstick as a guilty pleasure but DO NOT mistake this as having that tone when the other reviewers say purple, by that it means darkish brown with midplum navy untertones after it is applied. It's really not a mauve at all, it looks it in the tube (fools you into thinking it has a pink undertone) but ends up brown with a dark purple tone, not a hint of pinkish mauve at all to it. I can get away wearing it with brown toned outfits in the Fall especially at night time but it's going to sit in my makeup case most the year round unused. Nice formula for the lipstick itself as is most Estee Lauder lipsticks but I wouldn't even recommend it as a goth look (trust me I was young once lol) because of it's mud not mad color.
!!!!!WOW!!!!! I honestly wasn't expecting much with this shampoo but egads man it's great!!! My hair hadn't felt so "clean" in I don't know how long. It was super soft afterwards, it really is the miracle to clean out residue. I don't even use hair products really, not a big fan of hairspray or anything. Just shampoo and conditioner for me. Add this to your once a week or so line up. Really does make using your regular shampoo/conditioner work better because it can soak in better after having used this product. I have oily problem hair so this is the best shampoo I have found on the market.
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Pear Glace Silkening Body Lotion

This is nice change. Ir lives up to it's name sake. I love the freshness of it and it's not harsh. It has a sweet aftertone that I adore. Great winter fragrance but not something I wear during the summer months.
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Strawberries and Champagne

Honestly, this is just OK. I love lotions and own a ton of different ones from over the years but this is one I'm glad I was given as a gift. It's not that great a smell at all unfortunatly. It's lacking the sweetness I'd look for. It's too much like sour fruit. blah. It's texture is nice though like all the other Victiora Secrets lotions. Just I'd stick to something else.
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Amber Romance Body Lotion

If you could label it winter-sunshine I think it would be fitting. It's fresh like a sunny day in spring but warm toned like marshmellows in hotchocolate by the fire. What a wonderful thing! Great lasting power of scent for a lotion as well.
I have been searching for GOOD rose scented product forever and a day now. I've found it in this line from Avon! Oh my God was I so happy when I picked this giftset up at the mall kiosk. It has a body spray, lotion jar and a shower gel. It smells like the roses we had at my old country house growing up. Really like real roses instead of that artificial crap smell I've experienced on so many "rose scented products" I'm 25 years old and people keep asking what I'm wearing saying they love it. So far from being an old lady fragrance and so close to being the one the "one" to stand out in a crowd as having good taste. Love it. Thanks for this absolute winner Avon!
Eye Shadow -Aziza - Creamy Shimmering Eyeshadow in Lavender Bloom
ScullyNess 3/27/2004 9:57:00 PM
WOW am I ever shocked. This ended up being a FANTASTIC product! I wear mac and jane shadows as a norm because most eyeshadows I've tried end up being well faded, streaky, hard to see, greasy, uneven, chalky, ummm well crap to put it pluntly. The texture of these Aziza II cream eyeshadows is awesome. They go on thick and smooth. No streaking, no grease, easily and smoothly slid right across my lid in a perfect line. It blended out well and is wearing well. I'm definitly purchasing more shade colors tomorrow on top of the Lavendar bloom collection colors I have right now (darker pinks, silverish blues, purple family colors). They've had really surprising staying power for me. I have a hard time with most cream eyeshadows but these are a wonderful find. A+ product worth stocking up on for such a low price. EDIT: 3/5/08 These crease really badly, way more than I used to realize. If you want good creme eyeshadows get Revlon or FLIRT that kohls carries either will do you a lot better.
If you want a coffee toned yet gold-copper look this is a great choice. Normally I don't wear this shade of lip color but for some reason Sunrise has really grown on me. The container it comes in is really great too. A well made tube that has a top that won't come off unless you yourself unscrew it. Really creamy and almost sticky feeling but not greasy or too slippery, like a luxury version of bonne bells lip lites but with high intensity color. Pigment, pigment, pigment! Puts the pigment amount in mac lipglasses to shame. Not as glossy or shiny as a lipglass but if you want it to be super extra shiny just add your favorite gloss on top. Even after it fades it fades leaving a lovely gold toned shimmer on your lips. Also the glitter doesn't spread all over your face. It stays well in place on your lips. It's super thin shimmer glitter like found in mac lipglasses so it doesn't drive you crazy on your lips. Will definetly be purchases more glazewears very very soon.
