I like this stuff a lot,though you have to use a lot for it to cover up well.This doesnt work as good on my blemishes as it does under my eyes.I like how it looks after I use it,so I will keep buying it
I LOVE this blush so much!I have it in soft rose and bare honey.I like both of them,but soft rose suits me more.I have a hard time finding blush that works for me and they both work so well.It goes on perfectly and makes my cheekbones look amazing. I will definetly keep on using and buying this!
Scrubs -Victoria's Secret - Stimulating Body Scrub - Love Spell

I got this scrub for christmas and I love it!Used with the body butter your skin will be so so soft.I like that it has more of the scrub part and its not watery like some scrubs I have used before.
I used to HATE love spell.But I got it for christmas and I like it more now.Either way,I love this body butter.Used with the love spell body scrub my skin is always SO soft.I like the smell,but it would be nice to have a unscented version I can wear when I want to wear other perfume
This is a VERY sucky product.I liked it at first,but not anymore at all.Even though its my color,it makes my cheeks look orange.It doesnt cover up anything at all,it just makes my skin look worse.It makes all of my pimples and laugh lines way more noticeable.I have pretty good skin so I dont know why it makes my skin look like its so bad.Plus even with powder it still makes my skin look even oilier than it really is. **EDIT** I agree with the girls who have said that its ashy looking.When I first put it on its almost a grey-ish color but once my skin starts to get more oily it looks orange.I used to have this before they "reformulated" it,and it was so much better then than it is now.If your going to buy foundation,I'd reccomend anything by Maybelline.There products are basically the same price,but a lot better
I thought this would be a little bit darker than it really is,but I still like it.It's a very sheer light light pink.It reminds me of a "ballet pink" color.I usually paint about two coats when I want a very simple manicure,or when I dont have a color that matches my outfit.This would be really pretty over a french manicure. I like that the brush is thin,so it goes on easier.I will buy more essie polish soon!
This is a amazing product! I've used it a couple of times with no luck.But I thought that maybe I wasnt putting enough on,so I tried it again.It worked this time! My legs are silky-smooth with no hair at all. This also works well for the face,but only leave it on for about 2-3 minutes or it will burn! Im definetly going to continue using this!
Oh god,whoever came up with this product is a genius!I like to keep my nails painted,but I dont like going and sitting at a salon.So before that I had a magnifying lamp,which helped make sure I didnt get to many mess-ups,and all of my manicure stuff.I would spend an hour along getting my nails to look perfect.I was at target and I saw these,I ended up buying a bottle of Essie nail polish instead.I never knew target sold salon brands,but apparently they do.I thought about it and I decided I really wanted to buy some of this polish..So I went back and bought express-ion of love and are we there yet.The stick itself is like a big marker.It was very easy for me to apply,hardly any polish on the edges!I love this color,it reminds me of a watermelon pink.Im definetly going to buy more of nic's sticks,they are very convenient..These are perfect to keep in your purse for touch ups.I used to just carry whatever bottle of polish I was wearing in my purse,and I hated it.But now it's so much easier because its like a pen! **EDIT** Im going to have to bump down the nic sticks to a 4.Its only been a couple of days and my toes need a touch-up.I didnt paint a top coat over it,but this time I will..I'll still continue to buy Nicole by OPI stuff though.
I am such a mascara whore.I'll buy a new mascara use it for a couple of weeks and then buy another.I was using covergirl's volume exact,which I loved,but when I saw the commercial for this I new I had to buy it. I like the big brush,two or three swipes and my lashes are good.The tube takes up a lot of space in my makeup bag,but my makeup bag is pretty big so it's okay.I have this in the black-brown waterproof version,although it leans more to brown than black. I didnt get any clumps,which is a huge plus.I couldnt really tell if I got more volume though.I wear contacts,so I have to find a mascara that will stay put on my lashes,and this one does. I wore this while swimming and had a bit that came off my eyes.Then I got in the shower and more came off.So I took a lippy off for that. Overall,this is a good mascara.I will continue to wear it while swimming because only a small amount comes off and you can just use your towel to get it off.This is the first mascara that I'll actually buy again! **UPDATE** This mascara isnt holding up well with water.I went swimming again and it did run a little.I'll still use it though
Self Tanners -Hawaiian Tropic - Island Radiance Self Tanner

I've never used a self-tanner before.I asked my mom to go pick some up for me because she uses them a lot.I used some yesterday on my legs and woke up with my legs a tiny bit darker.No streaks at all. Then I put some more on today on my legs and arms.I only had to use a tiny bit,and it dries really fast. Once im out of this bottle,I'll buy some more **UPDATE** Im going to have to bump this down to a 3.It makes my legs itch really bad.I wish it didnt because it makes my legs so pretty and tan

My mom bought me a small trial size kit of this because it was on sale for like 3 bucks.I've been using it day and night for about 2 1/2 days now and I can already tell a difference in my skin.I've used proactive before and it didnt help,but this is almost exactly like it and it does work.My mom came home from the store today,with the full size bottles.And it was on sale for 12 dollars,you cant beat that.I spend that much on a face lotion alone. **EDIT** I took a lippy off because this is pretty drying.I normally have oily skin,so I usually dont use a moisturizer.But Im going to have to if I want to use this.I now have dry patches on my cheeks that I've never had before.I'd still buy this because it keeps my skin clear,but Im going to buy some moisturizer **UPDATE** This stuff is perfect!My skin isnt nearly as oily as it was before..I still have some blackheads,so im going to keep the rating as a 4.Im still going to use it along with blackhead strips for my nose and cheeks..
I used to hate this perfume,but I like it a little more now.I got it for christmas from my aunt,so I figured I would give it another try.I got the body mist along with the scrub,body butter,and EDT.Plus I just bought the lotion to use instead of the body butter everyday.I do like it more now,but I wouldnt wear it everyday.What I'll usually do is take a shower at night and then use the lotion and body butter where I need it and then use the mist.In the daytime I just wear my normal perfume instead.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Lip Gloss - Pinked Lemonade
namissaas224 6/17/2008 2:24:00 PM
I am a bigbigbig fan of all things from VS,so when I saw these lipglosses[sp?] I knew I had to try it..Its definetly my favorite lipgloss brand now...Over the holidays I bought Pinked Lemonade,Bubble it up[i think thats what its called!],and Cupquake...I never really was a fan of bubble-gummy smelled,but the bubble it up one was good.Cupquake and pinked lemonade are definetly my favorites as of now.I plan to buy a bunch more at the semi-annual sale when I go on wednesday. Anyway,i should review the actual product now! I have pinkish lips,not to dark but not light.This lipgloss on me is like a pinkish red color.I've always been a fan of colors like that.It also has a delicious lemon-y smell...I always like my lipglosses to have a "flavor".My friend told me when I talk,when im closer to them,you can smell the lipgloss!This lipgloss will go well with nearly any skin tone! Although,if your really pale I wouldnt wear a lot of it!I love the tube itself.It doesnt get all over the place like some,and I can apply it when one hand when Im in a hurry. I took of one lippy because it IS kind of sticky.But I will put up with that since this lipgloss is so amazing.
This is my all time favorite scent,and my HG.My friend gave me the last half of the bottle,because she bought a different kind.The top broke off and I still have about 1/4 bottle left,but none will come out no matter how hard I try. I dont really remember specific notes,but It smells sooooo good! VS is having their huge sale soon,and they usually have some of Halo there.I plan to buy atleast 3 bottles! Once I buy some wednesday morning I'll finish this review!
I did a little experiment today.I put on Volume Exact on one eye and Maybelline's great lash on the other.It was even for both mascaras. This is a HG worthy mascara.I already have long lashes,but it does lengthen them a bit more.I took a lippy off because its so thin! I put one coat of each on,and great lash is much thicker and for some reason I like that.Although,Volume Exact made them curl up more when Great Lash help my eyelashes curl at all. This mascara is pretty good,for a drugstore brand.It will curl your lashes and lengthen them,but if you want "look at me lashes" I'd suggest buying a different one
