My favorite gloss! I'm on my third tube. It's the perfect pale pink. Lasts a long time and I like the slight tingle.

Love this stuff! It's very pigmented so I only need a dab to blend on forehead, nose and chin. Covers pores and any redness. I've never broken out from this either. I use the translucent powder to set it and I'm good for the day. Pricey but you need very little so it will last a long time.
I never liked the original formula of the foundation because of the shine so I thought this would be worth a try. It's going back. I really only wanted some t-zone coverage but this still emphasizes the pores on my nose and chin. Ugh. Not to mention my face felt tight and the whole texture of my skin looked rough. Washed it off and packed it up.
Ok, so I know fragrance is very personal but I had hopes for this based on the reviews. It started off alright; smelled fresh. But then I caught a little whiff of what smelled like Old Spice. Ew. It only got worse from there. For the rest of the day, all I could smell was something very close to Raid ant spray! Unfortunately, I couldn't wash this stuff off as I was at work. I can only hope that I people couldn't smell it on me. Ugh.
Fragrances -Jo Malone - Dark Amber & Ginger Lily Cologne

I so wanted to like this fragrance. I have the Lotus Blossom and Water Lily and love that but this was a huge disappointment. The first spritz all I smelled was cedar. As it dried down the fragrance became softer, almost a little powdery and smelled so feminine. But waiting to get to that point is awful. I got a headache waiting for it to dry down and frankly I don't want to have to wait. Not for me.
I must have been delirious when I ordered this. Hated it immediately. It smelled like men's cologne and then went straight to smelling like sweaty gym clothes. Sent it back the next day.
I got this in a set from QVC. Came with Jami and Pinkie with a brush. I chose this color as it seemed to be the lightest for my PPP. The Jami gives me a sheer wash of color and I follow with the Pinkie as it has a little shimmer. The brush seems to load just enough product and blends so well. Color seems to last most of the day. No greasiness; the Jami almost seems to dry to a powder finish oddly.
I got this as part of a GoSmile travel kit. I love this balm! It goes on so smooth, just the right texture and I love the sweet taste. I use it under my lip gloss and at night and my lips are so soft. I find that it last on my lips quite a while; not a thin balm. Of course having it in a pot isn't the most hygienic but I'm sure no one is sharing this either. Would definitely buy again.
Oh how I love this fragrance! Definitely a cold weather or sexy nighttime fragrance. Still smells so good at the end of the day.
Foundations -Yves Saint Laurent - Matt Touch Foundation

Love this foundation! Goes on so smooth, evens out my redness around my nose, stays matte and the color stays true. I previously used Chanel Mat Lumiere but the coverage just wasn't good enough. YSL seems to hide the pores around my nose and chin but look natural at the same time. I use Ivory as I'm a PPP. Definitely not cheap but you need so little. I like the squeeze tube as opposed to a bottle. So far has not broken me out either and I am one of those people that will break out by the next day from a foundation. Will definitely buy again.
Scrubs -Olay - Regenerist Microdermabrasion and Peel Kit

I bought this on recommendation as a cheaper alternative to Philosophy's microdermabrasion system. It was easy to use and my face felt somewhat smoother. Didn't look or feel stripped either. The funny thing is that I really notice a difference the next day. My face felt even smoother and looked more even in color. I thought it was a fluke the first time but after using a second time, my skin looked even better the day after as well. I think using it once a week is good for me because I have sensitive skin. Good stuff and I would purchase again.
What a disappointment these turned out to be. They are advertised on her site as "...Create a non-stop lacquer-like shine while treating your lips to our vitamin enriched,non-sticky Lip Gels. The flavors and scents are heavenly!" I ordered Ornate, describes as a petal pink and Quiver, described as a lilac metallics sheen. The colors appeared to very similar in color, very frosty, no "laquer like" shine and had a horrible plastic smell. I could not taste any flavor other than plastic. Ugh! And I paid $22 a piece for these. Yikes! The only thing going for Alexis Vogel was the fast shipping. What a waste.
I bought this in the color Neutron. It's a pinkish brown with a slight metallic shimmer. Really looks quite pretty on my pale skin. Not overpowering.
This is a very shiny gloss, a little more tacky than I like. Just enhances my lip color slightly. I really have a hard time with the smell though. It reminds me of patchouli. Yikes!
I'm obviously in the minority on this one. I just didn't notice any difference in the staying power of my lip gloss or lipstick. Granted I never had a problem with feathering but I think this item is overhyped.
