Where to start? This starts out with some awesome promises! No sulfates and paraben free- thats a thumbs up in my book. The first time I used it, I noticed the smell right off the bat. You know when a girl wears too much perfume and its CLEAR that she's just trying too hard? (come on, we've all been there.... :P ) Well that is what this is like. TOO much of a smell to it- althought it doesn't linger when rinsed. Anywho, that was the first thing I noticed. The second thing was, that it really takes a long time for it to lather (I know, its because of the "no sulfate" I get it) but that doesn't really bother me. The 'poo is really thick too. I rinsed it out and followed with conditioner. It really felt no different after I got out of the shower than my other shampoos made my hair feel. The only thing is, it was a GREASE pit within 24 hours. Keep in mind, my hair is very fine and only to about my shoulders and I have always had an issue with it being greasy on me, but never this bad. ALSO, I think this would be the WORST is that I got pimples around my hairline! I never* get acne. If I have 2 pimples at a time, that is a huge breakout for me! So keep all of this in mind when you go to purchase this shampoo. Oh, also- I don't have sensitive skin at all.

Smells amazing, and does well with my color treated hair. I don't know if it will actually improve me hairs strength or not, but it does leave it feeling rather soft (not as much now as I just colored it....)
Amazing. Great application, AMAZING coverage. ( I had PINK and red in my hair, and they were BRIGHT & this covered it easily and completely the first time! only issue is there is a little part at the top that when I get in the sun you can see the red shining through a little bit!) and my hair doesn't feel all.,...nasty. It did feel a bit dry right after, but some 3 minute miracle & leave in conditioner took care of that for the most part. I will be using this again for sure!
This powder is amazing. This has replaced my MAC Powder (as it always makes me look...I

mix berry kiss (why oh why were you discontinued!?) lotion and vanilla and you have this lotion. New HG fragrance!
I love this lotion! It smells like a downplayed vanilla and the bottle is awesome. It looks like a late 1800's early 1900's bottle! So cute :) It is SO moisturizing that it only takes a little drop and it is very thick! The best thing? It is NATURAL. It is paraben free, phthalate free, propylene glycol free and dye free. This is a new HG for me! :)
HG FRAGRANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To me this honestly smells like Holister or Abercrombie & Fitch. Not any of the fragrances, but the store itself. I have been looking for this scent forever as I knew it had to be one! Honestly I would have thought they would have one like it at A&F, but go figure. lol This is beautiful, 1 spray goes a long way and it lasts. Ahhh love :)
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Chocolate fudge cake 3-in-1

EDIT!: The one I have turned out to be Double Hot Cocoa! Not fudge cake! Oh my goodness! Philosophy never fails to give me an awesome-baked-good smelling shower gel. This smells like someone literally put chocolate cake batter in the bottle! Is is amazing and the most moisturizing out of all the ones I have tried. Also A+ on their packaging. I love how they have a recipe for whatever the scent is on the bottle. Amazing! :)
I believe that this comes out as more of a brown/black than a purple with "shimmer" like I expected. I think younger people (or other people my age) might like it, but I don't do dark polish unless its a flat brown.
I had been using EVOO to remove my makeup then following with Neutrogena Grapefruit cleanser, THEN followed the moisturizer. (too many steps..lol) I would have continued doing this had I not found one product to do it all. This removes makeup (including waterproof mascara!) all by itself. I use this, swirl it around my face for a bit, wipe it off and done! Never has it bothered my (sometimes) acne prone skin. In the winter months I even take a bit more after my face is wiped off and use some as a moisturizer. I LOVE this product and will definitely buy it again!
The GOOD thing about this product is that it is more natural than others and it is very moisturizing and I believe it had a slight plumping effect which I like. BUT the reason that it got one lippie is for the overtaking, sickeningly minty taste and smell. It gave me a headache the SECOND I put it on. If you like STRONG mint, then this will be awesome for you!
LOVE the formula and the "soft" red color. This is an anytime lipstick and, IMHO, perfect for fall with some rosey cheeks and some nice, smokey eyes :)
EDIT: I do NOT like this anymore as I found that it has such a stong pink & gold undertone. I HATE gold, so this wasn't for me. This really reminds me of a more amplified petticoat. I like them both, and this one does seem to have a bit more gold to it, but they are a lot alike. It is really pigmented and will last a long time. Of course, I can't buy this (except for from blog sales) bc I believe that MAC.COM no longer sells this, but I'm sure it will come out again in the future as they generally do :) But if I do need another one by that time, I will surely buy a new one.
I got this as a free gift with purchase and I really like the scent :) Not as much as baby grace, but I still like it. I got a free shower gel and a free body emulsion. I don't think I would actually ever purchase this, but it is nice.
