Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lip Soother in Glaze

Unfortunately not much going on with the color (it looks gorgeous in the tube but essentially clear on the lips) but it has a nice tingly feel, pleasant fruity smell, decent lasting power for a gloss, it's moisturizing, and SPF 20 is the biggest reason I buy it (I have an outdoors job). I wear it over Vincent Longos' Liquid Kiss lipstain, very nice. :)

For me, this was exactly what I was looking for! A beautiful YLBB color... I am a neutral to slightly reddish undertoned, fair skinned blond/blue eyed complexion and was looking for this exact product... lasting, natural-but-better lip stain. It smells lovely (vanilla) and lasts long enough that the price did not bother me at all. I second all the other posters who said to make sure your lips are in good condition before application, though - otherwise you get the dreaded settling. I think that holds true for all stains. I tried every single color on my hands at Sephora where I purchased this, and I would agree the color swatches are inaccurate. I have been wearing this with Neutrogenas SPF 20 MoistureShine cooling lip gloss in "Glaze", and it is makin' me happy. :)
I bought this the first time because it had a nice price, but bought it the second time because it worked great on my normal to dry skin! I was very pleasantly surprised. Did not make my face too tight after washing and definitely made a noticeable difference in my skin texture and feel, plus did a great job cleaning off both makeup AND dust from the stables.

This product looks DARK in the tube, but since I already have a few others of this line I knew the color would be deceptive. It is a very natural, pretty subtle wine color on me. My husband immediately liked it so that is always a plus. I love these lipglosses, I think FF makes my 4th one?
I have only used this once, but so far I like it. It feels so gentle and creamy and rinsing out nicely. I also bought and tried the conditioner. The shampoo has a grape smell as everyone else has said, but the conditioner has a buttery smell - made me think of grape jelly and butter?? Not unpleasant. :) My hair came out good today - soft and conditioned. I hope I've just found a new favorite poo/conditioner combo.

My positive experience with Cherries in the Glow from this lipgloss line brought me back to the Revlon section for a new color... I really like this! Like other posters have said I found it to be a subtle YLBB, easy, pretty color. If you wait a few seconds after initial application the shine comes out and it lasts, too. I paired it with Revlon mocha lipliner and it's a perfect day shade for work - with a little dark smudge of eyeshadow it would go right out at night too.
I looove the way Hard Candy eyeshadows blend so easily. Sonic doesn't have huge lasting power - seems to fade and crease a little after hours of wear, but I use this dark olive with gold as a smoky eye look color and I just plain like it.

I got this on a recommendation from a friend -- who said that ANYONE can wear this color in her experience so far. On me it is a very fresh, almost corally color, and I immediately got complimented on it to my happy suprise. It has really good staying power for a lipgloss and a cute lucite tube that clicks shut, removing the doubt that it will leak in your makeup bag. The scent is definitely that kids medicine that used to be kept in the fridge...SMZ I think. Really faint though and didn't bother me at all. Fresh shiny gloss that perks up a tired face.
I decided that it was time for a new fragrance for myself that was a departure from my current scents. I wanted something a little sexier and warmer, and I happily found it in Amor Amor. I adore the first notes when it is still wet - a sharp tart raspberry and licorice, then it dries to warm, blissful, sultry. I find it sexy, not "sex" if that makes sense. Love the sparkling red bottle - makes me think of some kind of love potion. I love this.

I have been using this for months now, which is months longer than I was able to use any other foundation. I just feel like my skin tone changes too often or something, they always seem to stop matching up. I can't read the color I have any more, but whatever it is, it's the best match I have found so far. I just got one of those "YOU wear foundation?!" questions the other day, which I take as a huge complement to the foundation! It doesn't do anything weird - no settling, streaking, shinyness, does not dry my skin or cause it to break out. I loff it.
My positive blush buying experience with Strawberry Tart led me to buy this one, and I love it too! I am so happy I found these adorable little guys. I have pale freckly skin and highlighted blond hair - the colors work so well with my skin tone. The sheer, believable look has totally won me over to wearing blush!
My HG mascara. I have zero patience for clumpy mascaras and this one has never done me wrong - I've been wearing it for something like 10 years now and until someone SWEARS there's something that will make my lashes longer, thicker and more natural looking than Lash Out, I am stickin with it!! Lash Out Black forever. ;)
I have this in Dreamy, and I like the satiny shiny finish and the sweet, faint, plastic strawberry smell. (I like the smell!) I didn't notice any taste? The color looks beautiful over my Benefit Lush lipliner but would be too pale to wear on its own I think.

This stuff smells sooooooooooo good and I love how beachy and summery the bottle looks in the shower. But other than that..."eh". It didn't lather nicely, seemed a bit drying for my long straight highlighted hair. As much as I want to drown myself in the scent, I don't really like the shampoo for what it's meant for. Now if they came out with a body wash with that scent!

What a bummer. I really wanted to like this after the great reviews, but I can't lie. It doesn't detangle my hair no matter how much I used on my long straight highlighted hair. I thought that was its big draw? It smells nice and the color and bottle are pretty, the price is right, but if it doesn't work... I won't be buying it again and I think I will give it to my mother in law who has short hair.
