I haven't written a product review in a really long time, so it should be known that I love this eye shadow stick SO MUCH that I am coming here to write a good review on it. I have the "champagne craze" color, which is a neutral beige. I'm actually on my 2nd tube, and I never use up makeup. It's great for a simple wash of color, and it's also an awesome eyeshadow base for powder eyeshadows. I love it! It actually stays on all day. Plus, it's like $2!
Lip Gloss -Flirt - Squeeze Me Super Shiny Lipgloss

I love this gloss! I just bought it in Mulberry Marvel, which looks like a ghastly brownish-plum in the tube and box, but I assure you is a lovely, sheer, just-bitten color on me. The taste is divine and the gloss is shiny but not too sticky. I can't wait to try more shades!
I really like this scent. It is sweet, and kind of fruity/floraly. What I like the best about it, is that it has this tangy kick to it that you don't notice right away. Pretty teal blue/green packaging. I got a great deal on the lotion/fragrance set b/c they were having a sale! =)
I really like the Self Foaming Cleanser. I have normal skin w/ few breakouts. I love the pump packaging and the way just enough product foams out into your hand. It takes off all my makeup and leaves my face soft afterward. Definitely worth it!

I didn't really like this. I don't have oily skin by any means, but this left my face so shiny! It's probably the sunscreen in it. I didn't get oily neccessarily, but more SHINY with this, like reflective. Yuck.
Liquid -Sonia Kashuk - Hydro-Tint SPF 15 [DISCONTINUED]

This is a great tinted moisturizer for summertime. It is light, yet has a good amount of coverage for a TM. Tiny light reflective particles in it make your skin slightly shimmery, but it doesn't look tacky. I got "dark" and I'm MAC NC35/Stila D. The shade selection is pretty poor...I mean, what do girls who truly have dark skin do? I'm just a slightly tan white girl, but the dark shade is perfect for me.
A total dead ringer for Nars Orgasm (pic in profile). However, the golden shimmer in this one is slightly more prominent and it's easy to over do and then have disco cheeks, so be careful! It's very pretty though.
This is a great matte sort of brick color that looks horrifically dark in the pan but works wonders at making me look ever so slightly sunburned (a look I like sometimes)! Over bare skin w/ no foundation, this looks really good.
I picked up some of these glosses while in Australia and I am just smitten! They taste so yummy, like vanilla and rainbow sherbert, and are a great texture, not too goopy or sticky. I got Coral Paradise, a peachy pink, Romance, a bright sheer pink, and Raisin somethingorother, a cool pinky plum.
I have this in Tropical Peach which goes on a shimmery coral. Staying power is very good. Packaging is like a twist up blush stick.
Yay! Juicy tube type glosses with better flavors! =D These tubes are bigger than I expected them to be. I'm very pleased. These are half price on avon.com right now so I got three: Guava - a peachy pink w/ gold shimmer Fruit punch - a very pigmented I-ate-a-raspberry popsicle color Melon - light pink shimmer (not so stoked on this one, might exchange for pineapple which is a shimmery gold I've read) All in all, I'm very happy and would repurchase these again!
Lip Gloss -Avon - In A Whirl Lip Gloss in Golden Cherry

This gloss shows up on me as a sheer, warm red. It's not so strong that it can't be worn in the daytime. I quite like it! It smells very maraschino cherry-esque.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - Moistureshine Lipgloss in Glam

Glam is a bright warm peachy pink. It is quite bright, but still goes on fairly sheer. Looks awesome with a tan for spring/summer.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Gloss in Flirt
JDell10 3/12/2003 8:49:00 PM
Flirt is a non-shimmery sheer, yet pigmented berry color. Looks great when I first put it on, but tends to fuschia-ize a bit as it wears off. Overall I like it quite a bit, and got it on sale. =P
So far so good. I'm not a person who "needs" foundation, but sometimes I just like to mattify and even out my skintone a little bit. I don't have any blemishes or spots I'm trying to hide, so I can't rate how well it does that. I have worn this twice so far and it truly has lasted all day. On me, the finish really is natural. Matte, but somehow glowy at the same time. I must agree with many of the other reviewers, the color selection is very sucky. I have definitively warm toned MMM skin and had a heck of a time finding a match (smearing testers all over and then running outside of the drugstore to check it out in natural light). I ended up with Honey Beige. I'm a MAC NC35/Stila D/Jane Dream Cream. It is slightly slightly too dark for me, but it is a warm toned color. Medium beige was an ok match but slightly light, and totally pink on my hand. I live in fear that Honey Beige might orangeify on me, but hopefully not.
