This stuff is a little overpriced but so worth it! It smells great (tiger lily, jasmine, and ylang ylang) and is fun to use. A little goes a long way, so it lasts awhile. I wish it came in a better container, but I don't know what LUSH could use to package this weird goo. :-)
I absolutely loved this at first, but I grew tired of it after awhile. It's a nice, fruity scent, but it has a sharp undertone that bothers me a little. Island Kiss from 2004 is still the best.
My mother loves Lip Lites, and she always buys this damn shade thinking she'll like it, and when she sees it on her lips she changes her mind. I've therefore inherited a number of Lip Lites in Creme Pop. I think it looks harsh and trashy on me--I'm extremely fair, so maybe that's it--but it looks nice if I combine it with red lipstick. Kind of a summery pink. I wouldn't buy it again, but I like the way it looks with MAC's Port Red and some clear gloss.
I got a few of these at at Wyndham hotel in the Caribbean, and I I really like the lemony scent ... so much so that I went out and purchased four full-size bottles during a B&BW post-holiday sale. I'll be smelling lemony and feeling soft and pretty for a long time! :)
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Lip Gloss in Cariberry

I think all the Beauty Rush glosses look essentially the same on everyone--clear and sparkly. That said, the next time I buy one I will pick a better flavor. This reminded me of children's Tylenol. Ick.
I'm sorry to offend, but this is the absolute worst perfume I've ever smelled. It reminds me of a musty old closet, and it nearly knocks me off my feet. Maybe some people wear it well, but I won't even try.
I absolutely love this product: nice color, lots of shine, feels great on my lips. I see that it's not on the MAC web site any more ... can I cry now? Bring back Dewy Jube please!
This is a good shampoo. It does what it's supposed to do. I especially like the clean, soft scent.
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Original Moisturizing Creme

This stuff is AMAZING! I'm a pale WASPy/Irish girl with the lightest, most sensitive skin you can possibly imagine, and I think I've foudn my HG! I've had slight laugh lines since I was a teenager, and while my mother swears that nobody else would ever notice them, *I* don't like them. She recommended I try some of her Eucerin, and it's great. My eyes look so much better after two days! I bought a big tub of this for $8. I rub a little on my eyelids and underneath my eyes before I apply my makeup and before I go to bed. The consistency is viscous, so if you put it on in the morning, you'll need to wait awhile before applying shadow and liner.
The floral notes instantly disappear on my skin, leaving me smelling like some of my luggage. I love my leather handbags but do not care to smell like one! I will give my sample to a friend, who enjoys bizarre notes such as Xerox toner and will find the Kelly leather note to be perfectly tame! And hey GlamDiva, she is an Ivy Leaguer, which supports your theory ... but then again, so was I, and I am strictly a vanilla oriental kinda girl. ;)
Fragrances -Giorgio Armani - Emporio Armani Diamonds

I received a sample of this at Sephora. It's just a cloud of indistinct sweetness; I can't pick out individual notes. This is too "perfume-y" for me to purchase.
This review is for the Butterfly EDP. It's every bit as yummy and sexy as the lighter EDT, but it lasts longer. This is the only fragrance I've ever worn for more than a year; I've gotten tired of absolutely everything else. Lovely!
Treatments -Olay - Regenerist Thermal Skin Polisher

I love this stuff and will continue to buy it. It warms up when I rub it on my face and smells like applesauce! I use it before applying moisturizer or skin treatments. The only objection I have is the tube: when you get down to the last 25% of the tube, it's nearly impossible to squeeze the product out.
I hate to bring down the rating of this product, since I know most people love it, but it makes my thick, wavy hair feel heavy and greasy. I gave it away!
I think I understand why this is so popular -- it's because it's so strong and unique and downright WEIRD, like Theirry Mugler's Angel. People have really strong opinions about it -- definitely a love/hate thing. I personally do not know how I feel about it. I think it takes some getting used to, but I don't want to purchase it in case I decide I hate it. I do like the apple note, and I don't smell any hamsters or cedar shavings ... but I have pet hammies, so maybe I'm immune to their scent!
