Ummmmmm.....the vanilla is discontinued?!?!??!?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!?!?!?!? TRISH IS OUT OF HER MIND!!!!!!! So upset. WHAT were they thinking?
FABULOUS! I'm pale and pasty white and I avoid the sun like the Swine Flu, but this makes me look like I just had a great weekend at the beach...NO orangey look, just a natural, glowey, gorgeous complexion. I'm so fair that I could skip the blush after this,but I usually hit the apples of my cheeks with a little blush anyway. I LOVE this product. One warning...this is my second one...the first one I had for 2 days and the whole thing cracked and exploded....luckily Duane Reade exchanged it for me.
Ok, the WHOLE CITY of New York seems to be talking about this oil....but as lovely as I find most face oils (I've pretty much stopped putting creams on my face...they all broke me out..oils never do...go figure) this one STINKS. I mean STINKS. I would NEVER put this on my face, and it is only because of the smell....HORRIBLE. I mean, I can't say it enough....I can't describe how bad it is. My search goes on for the next, best oil....
This is a nice moisturizer for the summer/spring months when the weather is warmer. I use it under my SPF 85 and it is so lightweight that it does not give me that "too many layers of gunk" feeling before putting on makeup. I like that it has not broken me out (I'm prone), and that it dries right away (I am always running late in the morning). I'm sure there are some drugstore moisturizers that would be just as nice (I'm thinking Neutrogena Oil Free or something like that)....and I'm kind of over paying so much for beauty products, but overall not a bad pick for summer.

Stinks. I mean really, really stinks. I was SO excited to buy this, but I THOUGHT it would smell like Johnson's Baby Oil. It doesn't. It smells AWFUL. I wouldn't take this product for free.
Oh, gosh, this stuff is amazing! My hair feels light and smooth...just like the name says! I could NOT be happier....I was really having some "hair depression", but then I used this and found that things really turned around the first day...my hair is lookind and feeling wonderful! You HAVE to try this stuff!
Conditioner -Wen by Chaz Dean - Lavender Cleansing Conditioner

Wow...this stuff is amazing. My hairdresser suggested it since my highlighted and shoulder length hair was starting to look like straw. It is sooo gentle and it smells amazing. It transforms my hair into silky smooth shinyness....I could not be happier. I do not use it every day...only every other (or else my hair starts to feel too heavy) but will use it every day in the summer (when it is so hot and I am not working and I wear my hair up in a clip most days anyway). This stuff is great. I wish it wasn't in the annoying pump bottle (hard to pump all that stuff in the shower) but I'll deal with it! I know that I should not be washing my hair every day, but this makes it OK. I got it from QVC for a decent price, but like everything else I wish it were cheaper. If you are having ANY dry hair troubles whatsoever, this is a LIFESAVER.
Hair Styling Tools -Revlon - RV544 Tourmaline Ionic Hairdryer

I absolutely, positively love this blowdryer. I returned the T3 to Sephora (two reasons...one, it was setting off my smoke detector every morning when I used it, and two, it was just too expensive). Then I went to CVS.com and found this for 27.00 and change (with free shipping and five dollars off the order). It actually works BETTER than the T3. It gets hot but not horribly hot like the T3 did, and it has a bit more "blow" to it (or power). My hair looks amazing, and I am about 270.00 richer. My only improvement would be to make the cord a bit longer, but that is such a small deal considering how great it is and how cheap it is. Highly recommend!!!!
Ok, girls....here is an example of "you get what you pay for"....this is NOT the cheapest liquid eyeliner on the planet, but LORD it is amazing. My eyeliner has never, ever looked so good. I like that dark Audrey Hepburn look, and I need it to last ALL day, and this is the perfect eyeliner for that! I bought it in Noir (basic black).....PERFECT. Don't think I'll ever, ever go back to anything else. HG!!!!!!
I like this a lot...I mix a little dab of it into my face cleanser a couple of times a week....and it really gets my skin soft and fabulous feeling. I think if I used it on my sensitive face straight (and not mixed in the cleanser) it might be too much. Anyway, great product.
Will I repurchase?!!?!??! I don't think I'll EVER repurchase ANY other moisturizer AGAIN! This stuff is WONDERFUL!!! My poor cold, chapped face is now soft and fabulous, and I'm not breaking out at all (and I am prone to breatkouts). This is the softest, most amazing oil for my face...I rub it in before bed and my skin goes "AHHHHHHHHHHH"......and when I wake up my skin still feels soft and plump and looks great. My HG!!! Try this...you'll love it!
Well, I have a lot of discoloration on my pale ivory face, but I like that "Nicole Kidman" look of porcelian and perfect skin (ok, I'm in a dream world, but whatever!). This product helps me actually get close to achieving this, and I've been using it as my foundation. I love the look I get.....even and pretty, and if I use the setting powder it lasts a long time...hours and hours. You MUST blend it up or mush it up between your fingers before you put it on your face, or it will be a total disaster. Once you mush it and warm it, you only need a little and it works miracles! This also never, ever breaks me out (and I am prone). I could NOT live without this, and all my other crappy foundations are going back to the store. They just don't cut it. Oh, and I also LOVE that Dermablend has SO many colors to choose from.....perfect!
Oh, LORD I LOVE THIS STUFF! It is the best conditioner I've used in a LONG LONG time. It made my hair soft and fabulous...lightweight and clean and sooo easy to manage. I'm buying this forever.
Shampoo -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Nourishing Shampoo

Didn't love this. It has a great smell, but it is soo thick and it made it very hard to dry my hair....my hair was so heavy and greasy feeling. I would not ever buy this again. I also hate that the cap of the shampoo doesn't come off so you can't get the last drop out. (It did have a great smell, I must say that!)
Eye Primer -Clinique - Touch Base For Eyes in Canvas Light

I've been using this for years, and I've repurchased about 20 times probably. LOVE this...it is great on its own or as a base for other eyeshadows. Don't think I could leave the house without this. It is pretty and light but does not have TOO much shimmer...and it covers my red eyelids....makes me look awake and alive. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
