The packaging got me -- haha! The little case and brush was just too cute, and I thought if there's anyone who could wear color this light, it's me. However, despite my porcelain complexion, it didn't show at all. Definitely not worth the price, and it almost turned me off to Pixi products at all...but I suppose I'll give them a second chance at some point.
This is a fantastic blush! So thankful I got it when it was LE a few years back...
I love this bronzer. Because I'm a pale-skinned redhead, I shy away from any sort of tanning products, instead reveling in my different look! However, sometimes I really do feel shockingly white and kinda freaky, so then I pull out this bronzer, which is perfect!! It gives me a natural glow and just looks great in general! I would definitely repurchase.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Cleansing Pads

This is a spa in a bottle....it's exhilarating and relaxing to use this cleansing pad at the end of the day. My face feels so clean and exfoliated, and they aren't that drying (surprisingly) either. I will continue to purchase, as I have already. I tend to use them 2-3 times per week.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Orange Essence Facial Cleanser

I usually like Burt's Bee's products, but this one I would not repurchase. I am using it up to completion, because I hate to waste money, but it doesn't make me feel like it's cleansing my face at all...and has made my eyes burn a few times due to the acidity of the orange essence. I like the concept, the tube, etc, but it just isn't effective and doesn't make me feel clean.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Moonlight Path Body Lotion

Been through multiple tubes of this. It's a must-have. An absolute classic as far as I'm concerned...and my perfume tastes range from high to low priced scents. My fiance loves it on me -- and indeed, loves the scent so much he actually uses the BBW conditioner in the same scent, which cracks me up, because otherwise he's so not a metrosexual in any way!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Youth Surge SPF15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer

Well, I've been using this product for one week. I use it after washing my face in the morning. So far so good. It's making my skin look good, and I'm not breaking out. I'm a pale redhead, with sensitive skin, so that is a good sign that it's not bothering me. I suppose I'll update this if I start breaking out or something. I usually love Clinique products, so hopefully this won't let me down!
I first smelled Diva on a friend, when we went out for the evening together. It was strong, intoxicating, and yet lovely. Decadent. Rich. As one review said, you wouldn't wear this with jeans! Although it smells distinctly of the 80s -- heavier, more floral than the current celebrity perfumes we seem to like today (not my thing)....it is not at all cloying. It's sexy in an "I'm wearing a red cocktail dress" kinda way. If you wear Diva, you want to be noticed. And, you will be. Indeed. What's great is that you can find this scent in places like T.J. Maxx or Loehmann's on the cheap.
This is fun, light and distinctive. A good summery scent, I think. It reminds me of a day at a carnival or amusement park, because it's kind of sweet, and yet there's a lot of floral and green as well. Not my fave perfume, but it's good to have in my stash of scents.
My absolute favorite nail polish. There's something so California Girl -- Hot about it this polish....Even though I'm a redhead with very fair skin, I always feel like the tanned blonde CA gal when I put this on. It's such a hot, hot color! Very young, sexy, and says "I'm high maintenance" in a good way!
This lip stain is GORGEOUS. I initially saw it on someone else and loved it so much, I asked what she was wearing. When she told me, I went to Sephora to get one for myself. I was shocked when it looked great on me just as it had on her. Not terribly drying, either, as I expected. I would definitely try other colors, but the #1 Red is amazing.
Lollia Wish says summer to me -- it's like a fun summer afternoon as a kid, with its cotton candy sweetness and sunscreeny, coconutty lusciousness too! The vanilla also comes through, and while I'm not a fan of vanilla, for some reason it isn't cloying. It's not an every day scent; nor is it an every woman scent, but for fun on a long weekend or here and there for a summer outing, it is exquisite!
Love this color! It's super hot and looks great matte (as is) or with gloss over. It's especially awesome with black eyeliner/smokey eye look. It's a unique color and certainly not for everyone, but if you have all the standard colors and are looking for something a little wild and different, go for it!
Creme Brulee in LipLites is a pretty, functional gloss that tastes amazing and lasts for a while, considering it's a gloss. I'm not 100% in love, but for the price, it is a good value.
Love Fresh Amour -- It's sexy and unique....stays on through an entire night out. Hot stuff!
