I have this in Honey, which is a very pretty light pinkish/brown. At 15.00 USD, I think it's a steal because you get a lot of the product. I love how it gives my cheeks a flushed look. My only gripe is the packaging (which is very sleek and sophisticated) but the blush gets dusty quite easily and everytime I open the compact, the blush is all over the pan and the mirror. This is a pretty blush though and I would like to try another color!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

I have been using this as my moisturizer since I was 14. This is the best I have encountered yet. A lot of people have problems with this and claim that it makes them feel oily...I'm just glad I don't have that problem. My face tends to get dry and I appreciate the refreshed feeling it gives my face. I will continue to buy this again and again.
When these first came out last summer, I purchased Fat Jelly first, which is a very pretty sheer berry color. Then several months later, I bought Fat Candy which is a sheer see-thru pink. Then I got Fat Crystal which is clear. They all look the same on my lips for the most part (Fat Berry may make my lips a little more rosy than the others) and the smell is nice. They didn't plump my lips as much as I'd hoped, but they did look somewhat fuller and I can't complain... :)
This is such a beautiful, crisp and refreshing scent. I'm absolutely in love with this. It's probably the most I have ever spent on a small solitare bottle of perfume (56.50 for 1oz) but it's definitely worth it.
I received the trial-sized version from Sephora.com today. I really like how it plumped and elongated my lashes. I will definitel repurchase this!
This is a pretty bronzer! I was a little freaked out by how dark the color looked in the pan, but once I applied it, I realized it was sheer and has a light application. This definitely gets your skin a healthy glow...I can't wait to see how this looks in summer with a tan!
Blush -Clinique - Sheer Pink Loose Powder Refreshing Pink
NARSGlow 2/9/2004 7:36:00 PM
I was very upset when I headed to the Clinique counter and the Clinique lady told me they were all sold out of this limited edition product! So she applied some of the sample to my cheeks anyway and I fell in love with it instantly! I ordered it from Clinique.com and it's such a beautiful color. It's a sheer pink that leaves a nice, flushed glow to your face. Even though I thought 21.00 USD is a little expensive for this, it comes in quite a large tub so it will last forever! This is definitely a keeper!
Unfortunately, I scored this before Sephora severely slashed Hard Candy prices...so I ended up paying alot more for this compared to its current price...But this is a beautiful color, a deep garnet red with a nice golden shimmer. Great for winter!
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm

I liked this...mostly for the smell and taste and how well it went on my lips and how it left them refreshed and hydrated.
I bought this in a gift set at Hecht's and I love it to death. Yes this is a strong smell, but it's a nice, feminine smell. It reminds me of being a little girl for some reason... Anyway, the heart-shaped bottle packaging is lovely. Sentiment lasts on me all day, but it's a sweet and faint smell it leaves on me at the end of the day. I haven't tried any of their other perfumes but this one is definitely a keeper with me.
This is a lovely perfume. I purchased this last summer and I love the way it smells. So many people have complimented me on my fresh smelling perfume. Even though $65 was too much for the 1.7 ounce bottle I purchased, it's worth the money because the smell definitely holds its own and lasts forever. In my opinion, this is the only Chanel perfume that doesn't have the musty old woman smell!
Mascara -Cover Girl - Triple Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

This is another CG mascara I own and I'm more impressed with this than I was with Super Thick Lash! This stuff does just as promised and doesn't clump up my lashes. This is a definite must have for the ladies who don't want their mascara to look too dark and too made up for the daytime...you can keep your lashes looking beautiful with just one coat in the daytime and a couple coats in the evening. They did a nice job with this mascara!
Iam really upset with Hard Candy for once...this stuff sucks! It was too much of a plum color for my light complexion! It was nicely packaged and I love the little brush it came with but the color Sephora.com provided was not what I received. There is more brown in this than pink...hell, there's more plum to it than the latter two!
I'm not sure if $16.50 is appropriate for a product that is so freakin small, but this stuff is pretty nice! I own this and NARS Orgasm and there is no comparison for me whatsoever. The two shades are very different. This shade of Afterglow is a pinkish/brown color with small sparkles which give cheeks a flushed look. If this stuff was a lot bigger, I would definitely repurchase! But I don't have to worrying about repurchasing this stuff ever because I have plenty left and way too many blushes to pick one for everyday use! Nice job, I do like this color alot though!
Loose Powders -Clinique - Gentle Light powder [DISCONTINUED]

I'm upset seeing all these reviews dissing my HG powder! First off, this stuff is great and I'm sorry if anyone had a bad experience with it! I got this in Glow 3 and it doesn't leave obvious clues (like the whole disco glittery look) as if you're wearing a shimmering powder. The powder does have some shimmer to it, but it's more of a muted shimmer. I like that it leaves me a nice glow during these dull winter months. This is the best shimmer powder I've found that I can wear all day and the good thing is that it matches my skintone. I've thrown out my former HG, Bonne Bell's Glimmer Bronze powder in Gold 'n Glitz, which I thought was the best kind of shimmer powder. Now I have something with staying powder and it doesn't leave a makeup line and creates the perfect glow.... Nice job Clinique!
