Hate this mascara. I can usually make just about any mascara work... until I ran upon this one. I have naturally full, long lashes, but this mascara makes me look like I hardly have any because it clumps so bad. Not only does it clump, but there is virtually no way to un-clump them. The mascara wand is flimsy and does a horrid job at separating the lashes and the formula flakes. Worst purchase ever.
I had extremely high hopes for this product, but I don't believe it works for my skin type. First, the color regular (which I bought) is a bit too dark for me, but the color fair is WAY too light. When I use this alone as a foundation it doesn't do much of anything for my skin. So I wear it after I apply my liquid foundation and concealer, and use it as a setting powder. To me it seems to do the exact same thing my cheap setting powder did. It doesn't brighten, or color correct my skin in any way. I certainly won't be repurchasing this product and only recommend this to those who don't need much coverage and have combination/oily skin, since it is very powdery, and I can imagine would accentuate any dry patches.
Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

I enjoy the Revlon lip butters in general, but I am just not a fan of the glitter in this shade. This appears to be a shade you can wear every day, but the glitter makes it unenjoyable for me. I can't stand that I can feel the glitter on my lips when I rub them together. It's definitely chunky, and even after the color wares off, residual glitter remains. A definite dupe for this lip butter would be Maybelline Moisture Extreme lipstick in the shade Peach Colada. It looks identical on my lips, except it doesn't have the gritty glitter feeling on my lips. The glitter in Peach Colada appears finer too, which I enjoy more.
I have heard so many people rave about this mascara that I wanted to love it so incredibly bad, but I was horribly disappointed. When I first started using it, I had to keep scraping excess mascara off the wand since it was drenched in product. After initial application it doesn't separate my lashes, and when I try to build up volume it makes my lashes incredibly clumpy and dull looking. It also gets flakey on me throughout the day.
I receievd this perfume as a gift from my aunt and I gotta say I'm not a fan. It's certainly not a repulsive scent; meaning I wouldn't mind smelling this on someone else. But I personally would never purchase it myself. In fact, I have only really worn it once. It's got a strange tang to it, overall I just don't find the scent flattering at all. Happy is certainly not a word I would associate with this scent.
I very much enjoy this scent! It's very fruity, and smells absolutely delicious! I will agree with most of the people who reviewed this scent, it does smell similar to love spell, but to me it's even better. I sprayed this right before I went into a house full of boys and they went absolutely crazy for the scent. They couldn't stop mentioning how good I smelled. It's definitely really strong at first, but the scent does fade pretty quickly so I keep a small bottle of it in my purse.
This is my all time favorite perfume scent. It was love at first sniff. I wore this for several years, and have just recently ventured out to new scents. It smells very clean, fresh, young and happy. It's certainly more of a spring/summer scent and directed at a younger crowd. But I enjoy that it isn't over-powering and appropriate for everyday use. The only thing I don't like about this perfume is that I feel it's a very familiar scent due to its popularity. I am the type of person that likes to smell unique and different.
Love the scent. It is light, fresh, and fruity. I also enjoy that it isn't overly sweet like some fruity scents can be. It smells delicious, just like the name (: Wear this one almost on a daily basis as it is very pleasant and not overpowering.
Deodorants -Dove - Go Fresh Waterlilly and Freshmint

As a deodorant this product works fine. However, I find the scent of this particular one absolutely atrocious. I usually get the original scent, which I like, this one I could only stand wearing for one day. Also, this deodorant does not wear clear like the label claims. I don't really mind since I put it on after I have my clothes on, but if I do end up changing clothes, I end up getting white marks on my shirt. Kind of irritating.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - Candy Apple
RianneS 1/2/2012 4:40:00 AM
I am in absolute love with the texture of the lip butters. It glides on very smoothly like a moisturizing lip balm, but has the color pay-off of a lipstick. It is also slightly glossy, so you have three products in one. I love the candy apple shade. It's a orangey red shade with a glossy finish. The color is very buildable. So you can wear it like a tinted lip balm, or as a lip stick. It doesn't wear an incredible long time, but I don't mind reapplying for the other benefits of this product. The consistency is soft, so you have to be careful with how you use and store this product. I definitely wouldn't let it sit anywhere hot, as it would just melt away.
Love the stuff. If you're looking for a heavy-duty concealer, this is it! It covers absolutely everything. It is also extremely long wearing. It does look very cakey, so I only use it on problem areas like pimples, or bad blemishes. I have acne-prone skin and it has not broken me out. It isn't the most user-friendly product, so it does take a bit of experimenting with the application. I use it after foundation and apply it with a crease brush, then I dab the area with a sponge until it blends in with the rest of my face. Also, I recommend working at one area at a time since it does dry incredibly fast. I do not recommend using this under the eye area as it is too dry and thick for the delicate and thin skin. One down side to this product is the color selection. I believe there are only three, so I combine light and medium to match my skin tone. A little of this product definitely goes a long way, so you're definitely getting a ton of product for a cheap price.
I have been using this foundation for a year now and I absolutely love it! I have oily, acne-prone skin and this foundation wears perfectly and does not break me out. I like that it's a full coverage foundation and has a matte finish. Also, it stays put ALL day long! It is a bit of a challenge to apply since it dries fast. My recommendation is to work in small areas of your face. I like to use my fingers and then go over the area with a sponge to ensure there is no streaking. I highly recommend using a moisturizer before applying this foundation. There is a slight scent to the product, that some people aren't fond of. Personally it doesn't bother me. A little of this foundation goes a long way. It does have a tendency to look a bit cakey if too much is applied. I also don't like using it around my eye area as it appears too dry and flakey there.
On contrary to other people's experience with this product, I absolutely loved it. I was going through a rough time with my entire face. It was so extremely dry and flakey that it hurt, which is strange since I normally have oily skin. I had tried numerous lip treatments and absolutely nothing worked until I tried this lip protectant. I don't care much for the packaging since I don't like to have to use my fingers to apply lip balm. I scraped a small amount of both the restore and revive container for every application. It's by no means a deliciously smelling lip balm, but it's not bad either. It tastes slightly sweet too. Now that my lips are back to normal I just use it at night before I go to sleep. I would use it during the day if the packaging was different. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with dry flakey lips.
