i used 1/4th of mine and once it got in the bath i couldn't smell it at all! it made nice bubbles though but i couldn't really smell it once it was in the water. i give it the 3 lippies because it's big enough to get 4 or 5 baths out of, it makes pretty good bubbles so you can use the comforter for bubbles and something else (bath bomb or melt) for a scent. it smells really good when it's not in the water though!
Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer

this came free with the stay matte foundation so i thought why not. i don't notice a difference at all when i use this compared to a moisturizer. didn't change anything about how the foundation looked or its staying power. i think i'll stick to just using moisturizer under my foundation, maybe get a more expensive foundation primer to try.
i loved the smell of this bath melt before i used it, i thought the scent was so familiar. once i realized what the familiar scent was, however..i didn't like it too much. it smells like cream cheese to me! like..sweet cream cheese aha. it took a long time to melt in the bath (i only used half) but as soon as it dissolved i couldn't smell it anymore. i could barley smell it on my skin afterward. the 2 lippies are for how cute it is, looks like a cupcake! :D
i bought the original carmex in the tin but didn't like sticking my finger in it and having to wipe it off somewhere afterwards so i went to the store to get the tube version. saw the cherry flavor and thought why not! it smells good, it's a bit more watery/greasy than the tin version but that's ok. it took me FOREVER to open though! the lid was on so tight i had to use my teeth to open it and thought i was going to burst open the tube

bought this on sale mainly for the lightest color which i wanted to use as a highlight. unfortunately that's the least pigmented color in the quad and it doesn't show up on me very well. the darker 2 colors, a chocolate brown and a copper color are quite nice though so this wasn't a complete waste of money. not bad for $3.99cad

not bad at all. comparable to mac's select cover up. liquidy, med/full coverage, easy application and nice packaging. bought the color "light" and it's great.
i was looking for a nice nude lipstick and thought mac's myth and gosh's darling were too light for me. i found this one on sale and tried it and it's the perfect nude for me! when applied lightly its just sheer enough to cancel out my pink toned lips and make them the greatest nude shade. the texture of this lipstick is a bit gritty, so i'll probably apply it with a lip balm underneath. the packaging is really pretty too
it's a good basic soap. not as "lush" as most other lush soaps. don't get this if you're looking for something really moisturizing. it smells divine, like snow fairy. it doesn't lather too well and it's a bit drying, but it's a decent soap for getting clean.
mmm smells like doctor pepper and cinnamon. makes really nice bubbles and it's soooo cute! have to make sure i pick up some more of these on the website on boxing day
such a pretty color. a really nice addition to my neutrals as i try to get into bolder colors.
its very smooth on my lips, and a really pretty color. i just don't see myself reaching for it very often. i think there's nicer pinks out there. but i love love love the fafi packaging, i'd pay $14 just for that :P
really pretty! looks super bright in the tube but comes out a nice medium pink. very glossy and stays on forever.
really pretty! light shiny pink with a bit of shimmer. lasts a super long time, and the fafi packaging is great
i got this in my stocking and i really like it! the packaging is GORGEOUS! slick black with "eyes lips face" written across it. it's nice to have a lower end palette with pretty neutrals instead of over the top crazy colors i'd never wear. the eyeshadows are very pigmented with a base or cream shadow underneath. the lip colors aren't the best, but not too bad for the price. the blush and bronzer are very pretty too. the brushes are crap but that's to be expected. haven't tried the eyeliner yet, but the brow powder matches my eye brows perfect. great buy! (my mom paid $12 CAD for it)
i got this as a present from my boyfriend's mom. it's really pretty! super fresh and floral, reminds me of spring time. the packaging is really pretty too. it'll be perfect for hot summer days..really refreshing. i usually wear burberry brit, which is a warmer more musky scent..this is a nice alternative. :)
