Lotions/ Creams -Escada - Escada Pacific Paradise Moisturizing Body Lotion

I bought this lotion because I wanted the fragrance but was being cheap. I have Rockin Rio from last summer and this fragrance is not as syrupy sweet but is still fruity...I'd say with more floral notes. The consistency is kinda runny and the scent is mixed with a "lotiony" smell...definitely dilutes the fragrance. The dry down is still reminiscent of the fragrance. Overall, it smells nice.
I was at Rite Aid buying conditioner when i stopped to look at makeup. At an endcap, there was a display of these eyeshadow compacts that were so adorable, i had to stop and look. The packaging is clever. Each one resembles an iPod with colors of the compacts ranging from blue, purple, silver, gold, and green. I bought the gold one (IQ-06 or "Remix"). The colors are a whitish-gold, peach, shimmery, brown, and shimmery gold. I am not big on eyeshadow so the fact that it does not go on heavy does not bother me. However, only the two darker shades have any pigmentation once you apply them to your lids. I like the colors, though. I believe this cost me $5.69.
Ahhh...I LOVE this perfume. The small bottle lasted me all summer. It is the perfect scent for warm weather. It smells like pineapple and sugar and has an overall "syrupy sweet" smell and actually lasts on the skin for hours after application.
Lotions/ Creams -Aquolina - Pink Sugar Body Mousse

For $30, you get this tub of "body mousse" which is the consistency of yogurt but blends easily into the skin. I find the scent lasts longer than the actual perfume and it tends to leave your skin dewy. I just bought this at Sephora. I can see the lid and container getting messy quickly which is the only drawback.
At $19 a tube, this little vial dispenses drops of oil onto your nails and then you rub it into your cuticles. I have very dry hands so it's necessary for me and for anyone who has issues with hangnails, etc.
I like the light and grown up scent of this...I'm not great at describing fragrances but I find it appropriate to wear to work. I used to think it was spicy but now I think it smells a little frutier but is still a light scent. It doesn't seem to last long, though.
Loose Powders -Urban Decay - Flavored Body Powder in Cosmpolitan

MMM!! this is a body shimmer powder that tastes and smells like a Cosmopolitan drink. It has the cutest brush top that wisks the powder all over you. It also comes in Mai Tai and Pina Colada. It was $30 at Sephora. It is shimmery but very subtle. You, too, will lick your arm after applying it--it tastes so good lol. Edit: Target has a knock off for $9.99 in the same shades...not sure if it tastes the same though.
Mascara -Christian Dior - DiorShow Mascara Waterproof

I like the size of the wand. It is huge and the mascara goes on in one fell swoop. I accidentally bought the waterproof version and would prefer the non waterproof. Oh well...It definitely won't rub off and will withstand anything. You won't even have raccoon eyes the next morning if you (accidentally) fall asleep with your makeup on... The packaging is very Diorish with their logo splayed all over it. This was $23.00 at Sephora.
I bought this early in the summer and thought I had to have it. When I put it on in the store, it looked flattering but now it just washes me out. As far as the consistency goes, it is not goopy and goes on smoothly. Maybe I should find another color to blend with it. I want to like this so badly. The color is pretty, though, but a little more "lacquery" than I prefer.
This is a set of three lipglosses from the Tarte collection. They are double sided and include Fred and Ginger, Kevin and Winnie, and Jake and Samantha. They are mini sized and come in a faux, purple python card case that snaps shut. It is a great way to carry credit cards and IDs when you go out. It cost $28.50 at Sephora. The colors aren't great--3 out of 6 of the colors are brownish--I'm a pink person myself but the other colors are alright. I was just suckered in by the clever packaging (of course.)
I saw this at Sephora and had to buy it. I love the color--it looks liked a shimmery pink but goes on sheer. It's not waxy or goopy and because the pot is so big, you can use your finger without getting in under your nails. I love the price ($10) and it will last forever. The cute packaging doesn't hurt and if the blue gem thing falls off, there is a painted blue heart underneath.
it stinks. but it works. so...use at night and shower in the morning so you won't smell yourself at work. seriously though, little to no streaking and the color is not subtle enough that you don't notice it. worth the $6...but did i mention it smells?
It smells great. I can't drink the actual drink because it makes me want to hurl lol, but I like this fragrance. Light and clean but not much staying power.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Glam Shine Holographic in Whirl
Kirsten12 1/25/2005 9:23:00 PM
I'm on my 3rd tube!! For some reason this shade makes my lips look full and pouty and perfectly sparkly. I love love love this. Perfect neutrally-pink shade.
Super for winter but might be too greasy in the summer. I like the consistency and my face isn't dry again 5 minutes later. Some people might not like it because it does feel a little slick. Those with tendencies to be have oily skin will probably think it's too much.
