I love the scent, very fruity but light. Great for a daytime perfume and if you like fruity scents. However, it doesnt last long on me. This is my second bottle and I do find you can get great deals on it.
Shampoo -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Daily Shampoo

I also can't believe the bad reviews. However, it appears alot of those bad reviews come from people with thick or coars hair. Mine is fine and naturally wavy. I was afraid I would have the same outcome but did not. I love it. Makes my hair super soft and very manageable. I also use the conditioner and the serum. Does help your hair dry a little faster. No buildup and feels it cleans very well. I was using Matrix Biolage smoothing previously but switched, mainly due to Matrix still tests on animals. Paul Micthcell does not and I've found they have some great products.
Overall to me just an common every day mascara. Has a very skinny different type of wand. I would agree it probably coats evey lash but the formula is nothing special. Nothing dramatic if that is what you are looking for.
Moisturizers -H20 - Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment

Great moisturizer, love the feel. Soaks in quick and is not heavy. You dont need alot but then it seems like its going quickly. This is my first jar so I'm not sure how long it will last. I buy online as a store is not nearby so when you adding shipping onto the price it can add up.
Nice design, great for travel or on the go. Not sure it really gives a burst of moisture but it does have a nice cooling effect. I put I would buy again but really it a maybe.

I just bought the new pomegrante body lotion. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Great smell, soaks in quickly and doesn't leave that feeling of your clothes clinging to your skin. Skin is very smooth.
Styling Products -SAMY - Fat Hair Zero "0" Calories Amplifying Hair Spray
prettyinpink88 11/18/2010 3:40:00 PM
Does it volumize.. yes but its due to the crunchy hard hold. Feels like I'm spraying glue on my hair. The bottle I got always gets clogged so it doesn't even spray right even after being cleaned out. It does have an odd smell but I did not smell it all day like some. Overall, waste of money for me.
Pressed Powders -Merle Norman - Luxiva Flawless Effect Pressed Powder
prettyinpink88 11/18/2010 3:32:00 PM
Great powder. Does just what it says. Very finely milled which I love. I apply it with the pouf or sometimes a powder brush, depends on the type of finish I am going for.
Powder -Merle Norman - Luxiva Purely Mineral Makeup

Best mineral foundation I have used. Use it in the summer and it works perfect for the hot and humid days. The product seems to last me at least a year. I am now on my 3rd jar.
Tinted Moisturizer -Merle Norman - Luxiva Sheer Defense Tinted Moisturizer
prettyinpink88 11/18/2010 3:23:00 PM
Nice product if you want sheer coverage but yet it covers very well. Nice consitency and smoothes over skin flawlessly. I am using this as my foundation over a moisturizer for the cooler months. I apply using my foundation brush and don't need alot of product. I paid $36 which is about average for your high end foundations but feel it will last me quite a long time. Glad I decided to try it.
I also have in Catwalk. Like that they can be used wet or dry. I do not have a problem with crumbling but I also use my MN cosemetic brushes instead of the applicator in the package. They blend nicely and you can cotrol the pigmentation. Due to they are baked yes, if you drop them or dont handle with some care they will break. Overall, very nice shadow for the price.
This stuff does work. Yes, it has a smell but look at what is in it. The smell does disappear fairly quickly and I find it asborbs and I do not have any issues with it being greasy. Great product for the winter.
Polishes -Avon - Matte Nail Enamel in Black as Night
prettyinpink88 11/5/2010 3:16:00 PM
I just got this in the grey not black so figured I would add another reivew to the same type of product. Goes on nicely, dries quick but does not last. Chips very easily. I had it on about half a day and started to notice chips (and I was not doing dishes or anything extreme). I did not have a base or top coat on, as stated on the package to achieve the maxium matte look, which I thought was probably the problem. The next day I tried again with base coat, same result, easily and quickly chipped. It was cheap but for the hassel and frequency of touch-ups not worth it.
