I love this stuff. It does an ok job of keeping breakouts away but the best part of it is how clean it makes my skin feel. It tingles and feels really cool and it keeps you feeling super clean for hours. One of the best drugstore skin treatments available!
I LOVE this scent. I'm a fan of Demeter due to my love of sweet smelling foods and the fact that its a really brilliant alternative to conventional perfumes. This one is my fav demeter scent though. It may not last long or be particularly strong but it certainly smells divine and warm which will reflect your mood when you wear it. Smells JUST like the real thing!
This does not smell like birthday cake imo. And it smells a lot different on skin. Its a kind of scent that you dont really want to smell like once it hits your skin. Kind of "rotten"...
I started using this about 6 years ago when I really began appreciating good cosmetics. A friend and I stopped by the clinique counter and both recieved these as a GWP. We tried it at the same time and hours later both exclaimed "My lips still feel like velvet!". I wouldn't reccomed using it as a way to heal chapped lips but its great for those days when you don't wear lipstick but still want your lips to feel great.

I love these to pieces. I have yet to smell one of these soaps that wasn't pleasant. They lather well, feel really good on your body and the packaging is perfect. A+ to BABW for providing divine products at affordable prices!
My mother uses this and I personally think it smells heinous. It reminds me of bug spray and it's really strong. There is nothing feminine about this scent.

I looked like an oompa loompa and so did everyone else that I made try it. It's just not a very natural looking product.
I wasn't impressed with this at all. It was actually kind of a pain to apply and the color wasn't as rich as I had hoped. I'd much rather stick to liquid forms of liner for my lids.
This is a really good product but I personally cannot use any blush thats not a powder because my skin is oily. However, if my skin were a bit drier I would adore it. It adds a very natural looking flush that looks very cute. Just be careful to blend it quickly or you'll end up streaky!
I adore this scent. It's so feminine and well...romantic. It's not over-powering at all but lasts long. I've bought it as gifts for several people including my mom who usually likes strong scents like Givenchy. I've never met a person who didn't find it very appealing.

These are "ok". I have 3 of them and just like all of the other HC products, they are darling to look at. However, these pencils are a little bit cakey (you definately have to rub them in and use them as shadows) and crease like no other. Its sad because HC is a really fun brand but they tend to skimp on useability.
Pigments are truly a fabulous alternative to conventional eye shadows and liners. You can use them in so many different ways. You can brighten the colors by using them with a wet brush or go for a more subtle look by using them alone. I wear them as shadows for day time and as vibrant liners for going out. I buy samples only of pigments due to the fact that 1 tiny pot goes a LONG way and 1 full size pigment would probably last me about 8 years because of that. So if you don't plan on wearing a color EVERY DAY then don't bother paying full price for a full size.
This is my favorite pigment. It's very shimmery and is a truly unique color. It goes on green but reflects both green and brown at different angles. I also dab a bit of it in the center on my lips (after applying lipstick) to add a rich shimmer. It's a really great color for when you're wearing olive green.

This product does not do what it's supposed to and that's the bottom line. I have super oily skin and this made it even worse than when I didn't use it. The texture and the way it comes out of the tube actually made me think that the product had gone bad and was defective. It's THAT bad.
I got a pallete of 5 brown/neutral shades of this for Christmas and was very impressed with the texture. It glides on smoothly and creases much less than other eyeshadows. It also came with a good quality brush which was a big plus.
