I purchased one of these shadows after reading about it in a magazine, and returned it the next day. Creased so badly! Did not look very sttractive :(
Favorite eyeshadow hands down! I wear it every single day. The little pot lasts ages even with daily use. I might as well throw away all my other eye shadows because I always end up wearing Kitten. Day or Night.
Blush -Dessert Beauty - Juicy Sweet Cheeks Blushing Cream
LaurenJ 1/21/2006 5:57:00 PM
I bought this product on a whim because it was only $5 on the Sephora website and I always wanted to try a cream blush. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do, since I haven't had much luck with the whole Dessert Beauty line. The texture reminds me of potted lipgloss but I found it easy to blend. A little goes a long way, and it blends into my skin nicely with some slight sshimmer. It has replaced my NARS Orgasm blush which I have used for the past three years. I took off one lipstick because it doesn't last on the skin very long, within a few hours it fades away.
This is such a great product. I apply a swipe to my cheeks, forehead, and bridge of nose, and get tons of compliments on my skin throughout the day. I like applying this over a gel or cream blush, it makes me look so healthy and glowy. Terrific product!
Ick, I totally get the same "wet dog" scent a previous reviewer discribed, combined with a chemical perming solution background. Not very pleasant, in fact this has been the only lotion I had to wash off, it was making me sick. It smells nice in the bottle, but totally different on my skin.
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - True Blue Spa Mocha My Day

I'm not too fond of coffee scents (I don't even drink coffee....ever), but I had to try this scrub out when I found it on sale for 75% off. $3 was too hard to pass up. I really like this scrub, it's sort of foamy and very gentle. I like that the scent is strong, I use it in the morning to wake up my senses.
Lotions/ Creams -Jaqua Girls - Sinfully Rich Body Butter in Marshmallow Cocoa
LaurenJ 7/1/2005 11:12:00 PM
Despite the odd texture (my jar of cream is sort of clumpy), this is a great lotion. It sinks in fast and the yummy scent lasts a suprisingly long time on my skin. Boy is this strong, I would not suggest wearing a fragrance on top of this, or it would be completely overwhelming. The only thing I don't like about this product is the price, otherwise this is a must buy for those who love foody scented lotions.
Candles -Bath and Body Works - White Barn True Temptations Marble Cake Candle
LaurenJ 7/1/2005 11:07:00 PM
This candle is great! This is my second candle from White Barn and it does not disappoint. Makes my room smells like a chocolate cake :)
I'm not a fan of cinnamon scents, but this smells nothing like cinnamon to me. More of a frosting scent, but warmer than angel food cake or sugar wafer. The texture of the souffle is so creamy and sinks right in. I like to use this at night before I go to bed. Sadly, another great product BBW is discontinuing..
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci-Sugar Wafer Indulgent Lotion
LaurenJ 7/1/2005 10:53:00 PM
To me, this seems to be the lightest scent out of the whole Tutti Dolci line. It's not as foody as angel food cake either. That said, I do like the scent, but I wish it was stronger. It lasts a fair amount of time on me however. It does moisturize nicely.
Bath Treatments -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci - Honey Bath
LaurenJ 7/1/2005 10:48:00 PM
Yum! I have been searching for a strong smelling bath product that produces tons of bubbles that last, and have finally found what I have been searching for! Only two teaspoons creates tons of bubbles that last and last. The scent I have, chocolate fondue, is great to soak in a night when I am relaxing. I just wish BBW would keep these closed tightly, lately all the tubs in the store are sticky and half open :/
Gels/Soaps -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci Angel Food Cake Creme Body Wash
LaurenJ 7/1/2005 10:42:00 PM
This has to be the most fantastic body wash I have tried in a long time. So decadent! I absolutely love the vanilla cakey scent, it has a rich creamy lather and leaves my skin oh so soft. Paired with the matching lotion I can smell the angel food cake scent throughout the day. Two thumbs way up!
I stocked up on two of these because for 75%, it was a great deal. However, after wearing this for a while, it starts to turn on my skin. nothing horrible, but it has a note in it that is not appealing to me. The lotion holds the scent a lot better imo!
Why is Bath and Body Works discontinuing this product? It is my favorite item out of the whole Tutti Dolci line and when I found out that BBW was having a clearance sale, I stocked up. I love the sweet vanilla cake scent and it lasts all day long on me. Usually lotion scents start to fade after 1/2 an hour on me, but this lasts and lasts. It moisturizes nicely, sinks in quickly without feeling greasy. I don't understand why the company would discontinue the angel food cake scent, but keep the sugar wafer. This is a better scent in my opinion and lasts a whole lot longer!
Pressed Powders -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Powder
LaurenJ 5/14/2005 11:37:00 PM
I love this powder, I am on my third compact. The color blends right in and leaves my skin looking flawless. I don't use the sponge that is included though, I found that if I use a brush it provides a more natural finish. Rite Aid is having a Buy one Get one free promotion right now, so stock up while you can! I have also seen this promotion at CVS, which I took full advantage of. I also use the True Match Liquid foundation which is another great product! :)
