If I could give these a zero, I would. How can people hate regular Chapstick, and like these? They smell fruity at first, but go into a sickeningly disgusting smell after. I can't even describe it! Gross. Plain gross. I usually love chapstick, especially Strawberry, but this? Yuck.

Vaseline with SPF. Yuck. As groovynub said below, at least the money goes to a good cause.
Vaseline is a by-product of oil and gasoline. It's been around forever, but was more intensly researched by a chemist named Robert Chesebrough. Now, People used this stuff for everything: cosmetics, cuts and bruises, removing stains from furniture, polishing wood surfaces, restoring leather, preventing rust, and as a sexual aid (you can use your imagination on this one). Please excuse the history lesson! Anyway, I don't find much use for this stuff. As lip balm, it's oily and lasts 2 minutes. As a moisturizer, it's greasy, you can't touch anything or it'll be douched in the stuff. Maybe one day I'll find a use for it. But in the mean time, it'll be waiting in my cabnet. :)
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Wetslicks Lipgloss in Snowdrop
BaEnAuset 12/21/2003 10:20:00 PM
CG Wetslicks are the best! I have Fire Fly (A reddish color), Maple Sugar (warm bronzey brown), Clear Radience (Clear), Peaches N Gleam (Pinky peach, a little frosty on me) and my favorite, Snowdrop which is a sheer shimmery white. It looks so beautiful and smells great! It's smooth and gooey, and although it doesn't last more than 45 minutes, I love to reapply. I love it!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Delights (all shades) [DISCONTINUED]

I really wanted to like this product. But after trying it about 2 times, I knew it just wasn'y meant to be. :( Well, I happily picked this up after having a great experience with Almay's cream shadows. I chose "Midnight Twinkle" (I think that's what it's called!) It looked SOO pretty in the cute little pot that held all 4 colors (White, grey, dark blue, sky blue, all have shimmer). The colors DID work out, I didn't have any problems with the colors not showing up. I got about 3 different looks with these, but they creased in like 5 minutes! The texture is much too greasy. How disapointing!! :(
Eye Shadow -Almay - Bright Eyes Color Cream Shadow - Golden Gleam

WOW! Am I happy or what?! After using my MAC paints for quite some time (as shadows and bases), I've really gotten sick of doling out $15 bucks a pop! But I felt I had to, otherwise my shadow would crease.
WOW! I can't believe I've been letting this sit in her bathroom with out ever giving it a go!
After trying it, I MUST have them all. I'm going out TODAY to get them. I'M SOOOOO HAPPY!
Well, after reading all these reviews, I wasn't sure whether or not I should buy this mascara. Most people seem to dislike it. BUUUT, after heading to lorealparis.com and taking a peek at it, I just COULDN'T resist! Those soft looking feathers floating down the screen, the alluring description... I HAD to have it! So I head to my local drugstore and snatch up a black one. I rushed home, and to my VERRRRRY pleasent surprise... I quite like it!! It does kinda give that soft feathery look, not quite as much as I was hoping, but good enough! But the one thing I REAAALLLY like is the way it doesn't get all sick and crunchy feeling like ALL the other mascaras I have tried. They seem very... well, touchable. Not that your going to be fondling your lashes all day or anything, but it just feels fresher, I guess. If your questioning whether to get it or not, just go out and do it! You might just have some luck.
All I can say is, well... WOW!! This little guy is a keeper! When I'm at school, I'm SOO lazy, that I can't even apply lip balm, even though I carry it around. (I know, it's sad.) So when I come home, the cold winter weather has burned, chapped, and tortured my poor, poor lips. But after I apply this... it's like "Ahhh..." :) The menthol distracts me from that painful burning sensation. It comes in a small packaging, but surprisingly, it holds .21 OZ, that's the average lip gloss. I found it on sale for 39 cents, so what the hell? I have to say, I'm pretty impressed!
This is my HG nail color. It's the PERFECT red in all ways! No shimmer, shiney, lasts well even without a topcoat... EVERYTHING!!!!! As mentioned below it can be true red and blood red. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
This is a very nice lip gloss! Subtle sheen with a slight red tint! My only problem is it doesn't last... oh well... I can't complain, it's like $1!
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Shine Delice - Cranberry Pop (#315)
BaEnAuset 10/6/2003 7:15:00 PM
On my quest for the perfect red, I came across this. It's a beautiful cranberry-red that smells delicious! I absolutely love it! It's by no means as sheer as you might be led to believe, but when lip balm is applied before this lipstick, it creates a gorgeous red berry stain. My everday lipcolor.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - WetSlicks lipgloss - Sugar Maple
BaEnAuset 9/27/2003 12:59:00 PM
Wow CG! This gloss is great! I bought Clear Radiance, clear obviously :) Sugar Maple, and Fire Fly. Sugar Maple is sheer browny-bronze, with lots of micro shimmer, so it's not gritty at all. I'm very very impressed! It smells like vanilla and although it irritates me sometimes, it's not too strong. I'm SO glad I found these! I bought the clear one first because Wal*Mart was out of my usual low-end clear gloss, Neutrogena MoistureShine in Sweet Nothing. AHH! HAPPY!!
I love lipslicks! This one is my favorite, besides the limited edition Summer 2003 Lipslick called Babe, a sheer raspberry red. But daring is very nice too. A sheer pink-berry. They all have a nice soft shine and good pigmentation. (<--Is that a word?!) And although the packaging is flimsy, and the smell is... well, off, I'd have to say this is a pretty good sheer lip look.
I LOVE this scent! I have no idea what the undertones are in this stuff but it has a certain smell to it that I absolutely love!!! (Alot of perfumes have it...)
Mascara -Maybelline - Sky High Curves Extreme Length and Curl [DISCONTINUED]
BaEnAuset 8/30/2003 2:37:00 PM
This was a VERY disapointing product. I got it in Very Black. The brush was very low quality, and made my lashes clump horribly! Why don't I ever just stick to Illegal Lengths! So, anyways, I took the brush from my Illegal Lengths, and put it in the Sky High Curves. Now it's actually working!
