This is going to be my signature scent. A very beautiful, warm, and "sexy in a mature way" type of fragrance that I fell in love with the first time I smelled it and three years later I'm still favoring this scent over all others. The staying power, although not outstanding, is decent enough and I highly recommend "layering" to smell like Brit all day long. The soothing, homey vanilla is what attracts me most to this wonderful, favorite scent of mine. I would definitely purchase again, although a bit pricey.
When I first tried this, I fell instantly in love with the light, floral, girly scent. But now I'm halfway through the bottle and I'm starting to get very sick of it. Don't get me wrong, I still think it's a decent scent, but it's not the same anymore. After a while, the fragrance starts to get on your nerves. I will wisely use up the rest of the bottle, but I don't think I'll purchase it again.
I purchased two of these eyeshadows, winter white and sand. I love them both and I think that these shadows are one of the best ever...better than all those high end products that make you spend a fortune when you could get a superior product like this for only a buck or two. Definitely a must buy for smart girls who like quality shadows as well as a full wallet! :)
This was way too thick and intense to just wear and go. What I do it apply a thick amount to my lips and then after a minute, take a piece of tissue and lightly blot it out. Once I do this, the fiery intense orange-red then tones down to a tame copper gold and it's the perfect color to go along with golden bronzed cheeks and turquoise eyes.
I just got a sample of this perfum with a GWP. First of all, the clean pink glass bottle is so pretty and feminine. But the scent is even more pretty and feminine! It's a beautiful light floral scent and it reminds me of springtime and pretty sheer dresses blowing in the wind. Once I use up my Clinique Happy Heart (which I also adore), I am definitely buying this scent! I think it may become my favorite.
I bought this with a friend in the color "mica," a pretty soft pink. It's by far the thickest textured mascara I've ever owned (and I own quite a number) and therefore it sticks on for a pretty long time. The shade was wonderful, decent pigment and looked natural enough. The only complaint is the putrid scent. I can't tell you what it smells like, but it's so terrible and I wish it was scentless!

It was just all right. It does definitely darken my fair skin and so it's good when I want a tanned look, but I don't know, I just don't love it like I did Clinique's Touch of Bronze or even Maybelline's bronzer.
Mascara -Maybelline - Sky High Curves Extreme Length and Curl [DISCONTINUED]

The waterproof version of this mascara is really good. I love the thin yet full brush because it catches every lash. The color is rich and sooty which is perfect for a dramatic lash look. It almost looks like I have false lashes on. But beware, if you go over two-three coats, it will start clumping pretty badly. But if you lightly coat your lashes and wriggle the brush while you apply, you shouldn't have a problem with clumping. But then again, it may depend on your natural lash type. I have medium length, fine, and straight lashes which I always must curl with a metal eyelash curler.

The blue is very weak, and I see no metallic effect whatsoever. The primer is also practically useless because it does nothing for my lashes, which are thin, short, and relatively sparse. It also does not hold a curl well. Basically, I recommend that you save your money for a better colored mascara.
The best mascara I have ever tried. It's everything you want in a perfect mascara, rich color, waterproof and smudgeproof yet easy to remove, and pleasant results for a natural pretty lash look. The smaller brush works absolutely amazingly on my lower lashes with hardly no smudging since it's easy to control the small brush. The whole tube idea is awesome. The one bad thing? It costs 24 bucks at Sephora...now that is something I can't take.
This is an awesome cleanser to use if you are using a strong, somewhat harsh, prescription acne medication. I have stubborn face acne all over and my skin is oily. But my doctor prescribed Benzaclin for my acne, which works terrific for me, but it is definitely drying. Using this super gentle, softening cleanser has reduced the drying effects and kept my skin decent while the medicated lotion zapped away zits. I'm very happy. :)
I got this as a sample and I was disappointed. Though the formula itself was nice and brought out rich color, the brush is way too fluffy to work well with my short, sparse, and thin lashes. It clumped and didn't deliver the mascara evenly at all. It doesn't hold a curl either, so if your lashes are like mine, don't bother with this. My favorite Clinique mascara is naturally glossy. It's perfect for a natural, pretty, soft look for lashes. Try that instead.

I have only used this for two nights but I love waking up with soft skin in the morning with this product. I wash with Dove sensitive skin beauty bar in the morning and at night I use that smae beauty bar and after I rub this on my face. It gives a tingle and my skin seems to get a bit greasy from it, but after a good night's sleep you wake up to soft skin without oiliness. I have acne prone skin and this doesn't seem to contribute to the problem...but we'll wait and see.
This mascara is really quite terrible. Does not do anything for lashes. The brush is useless and sometimes makes lashes look even worse than without any makeup at all. The formula is also weak. I bought this in Royal Blue because I wanted to add some color to my lashes for parties. After about ten applications, it still barely showed on my dark lashes and the end result was clumpy, flaky, dark lashes with so light of a blue tone that it was basically worthless. It's cheap, but it'll do nothing, so save your five bucks for something better. I highly recommend Maxfactor 2000 Calorie Aqualash Mascara, Maybelline Full n' Soft, and Lancome Amplicils.
I really like this fragrance. This is probably the best scent for younger women by Lancome. It smells like sweet sugar with a slight fruity twist. Unexpected and delightful. Of course, I wouldn't wear this everyday but it's a really cute fragrance. Try it and see.
