I had to buy this lip gloss for the cute little bunny on the cover of the pink metal tin. Bodacious Berry looks like a very dark grape shade in the container, but is much lighter when it's worn. It as a nice scent, but is a very sticky gloss. I probably would not buy this again.
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm
PinkSugarFairy 12/21/2004 12:22:00 AM
Last time I was at Sephora, they were sold out, so the next day, I bought two! This strawberry scented lip balm smells divine and works wonders as a lip treatment. The metal container is cutesy, however, it claims to also be moisturizer. I tried this and found it to be a little too sticky for anywhere but the lips.
The sales assistant at Origins recommended this not nly as a treatment, but a moisturizer, as well. A few months ago, I'd use this gel-cream on my extremely oily skin as an alternative moisurizer and it worked great. I would definately recommend it to someone looking for a lotion for their oily skin. However, I've since started a routine with my dermatologist that makes my skin dry and easily irritated. I can't use Make a Difference anymore, because not only does it burn when it touches my skin, but I still need to use a moisturizer afterwards, because my skin feels so tight. it really depends on your skin- dry/oily, sensitive/normal?
Lotions/ Creams -BeneFit Cosmetics - Bathina Body So Fine
PinkSugarFairy 12/21/2004 12:11:00 AM
I'd read some of the reviews on this product, but still really wanted to try it because it looked so cute and I like the scent. It's not a moisturizing lotion, but I wasn't expecting it to be. The shimmer hardly showed on my light-medium skin tone. I basically paid for the scent (which is not the same as Maybe Baby, although BeneFit tries to make it that way), and I wouldn't pay $32 to get it again.
I bought this because I love Chanel and I nomally wear Coco Mademoiselle. It's fine at first, but after it dries on my skin, I don't like it. I'll stick with my first fav.
This is a makeup staple in my toiletry cabinet. I usually apply this with a brush on top of my foundation to mattify my oily skin and keep everything from sliding off in hot weather. If I'm hurrying, I'll sometimes apply the powder with the sponge included, but it can look a little cakey if not blended well. It provides good coverage, that's not too heavy but not too light
The packaging of this gloss is so feminine and pretty. I also like the shade which looks like a dark champagne/cocoa color but is actually sheer with faint sparkles. It's now my signeture lip gloss, especially since the name is mine..."Ashley"!
Brows -Cover Girl - CG Smoothers Natural Lash & Brow

I bought this to use on my lashes, because I normally don't need mascara. It makes you look like you're not even wearing anything, but adds a tiny bit of shine and seperates. It also tames my brows and holds them in place.
Toners -Chanel - Activateur Purete Oil Controling Purifying Lotion
PinkSugarFairy 1/1/2004 2:11:00 PM
I'm use to using liquid toners, but this one is a light gel. It had a nice fragrence, and didn't reek of alcohol. I also liked how matte my fac was, but a little tight (maybe because it also tightens pores?). This was a good toner for my extremely oily skin and didn't cause me to breakout or be sensitive.
Cleansers -Chanel - Precision Radiance Cleansing Foam- Rinse Off
PinkSugarFairy 1/1/2004 2:05:00 PM
I have very oily skin that tends to be sensitive to any skin care products I use, so I got a sample of this before I bought it. And I'm glad, because I didn't like it at all. The tiny scrubbing beads made this cleanser feel more like an exfoliator. My skin was irritated a bit by the beads, so I won't be purchasing this.
Moisturizers -Chanel - Precision Hydramax Oil-Free Hydrating Gel
PinkSugarFairy 1/1/2004 1:58:00 PM
I got a sample of this at the Chanel counter and I love it. Most moisterizers don't mattify much or leave my face still shiny. This one worked incredibly well. My face is very matte and doesn't get oily for awhile. My only con is that when I tried to apply my foundation (Origins Reflection Perfection) it balled up a little. Maybe it's because of the foundation I'm using. Either way, I will purchase this again.
Well, I'm going to have to be the one person to disagree. I got this perfume as a gift for Christmas and I hate it! It smells like a little girl and even though I'm still young, it only makes me feel like a child. It also doesn't help that everyone wears it.
This is my absolute favorite perfume. If I was wearing nothing, I would still wear this. It also smells a little differently on every woman. The only thing I hate is that everyone else is also in love with it as well and one of my close friends has purchased it. How is it that when I find my dream perfume, it has already been worn by someone else? The bottle is classic Chanel and gorgeous.
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - MegaBrilliance Lip Gloss
PinkSugarFairy 12/30/2003 2:40:00 PM
I bought mine in a pink shade for a festive party. This has tons of glitter- to the point that if you rub your lips together, it feels gritty. It's a good gloss for Halloween or dressing up for a costume party, but not for everyday wear.
This is a great foundation for people with very oily skin. It kept my face matte for most of the day and I don't have to use a ton of concealor, because it covers pretty well. The only problem is how quickly it dries, because you have to spread it very fast. It works great when paired with Origins Silk Screen powder, to keep you shine-free all day.
