I've used Philosophy Body Scrubs before (Guru and Gingerbread Man) so I thought I'd try this. I'm so glad I did because The Greatest Love is amazing stuff. It's a lot more gentle then other facial scrubs I've tried, and I like how it moisturises at the same time too. Although it does leave a greasy residue, I have found that it helps my skin stay moisturised, because it tends to be dry in places. But I would definitely recommend this product to anyone, it is wonderful!
I was given this as a gift, and even though it's perhaps too light for me to use as just a blush, it really does brighten my skin and makes me look less like I've been burning the candle at both ends. It isn't very shimmery, which think is a good thing, and not as pigmented as the blushes that I'm accustomed to (Nars, namely), but it's still a cute little product that evens out my skintone and that made me look very natural.
Generally, this is my daytime fragrance. I like it because it smells very fresh and clean (although Elizabeth Taylor Gardenia actually smells more like gardenia flowers than the Chanel version), and is a crisp floral scent. I do find I can't put too much on, otherwise the smell turns a bit too overwhelming and synthetic and makes me feel dizzy. But light use is perfect, it's a nice and unusual scent, that doesn't smell like every second person out there.
This is amazing. The perfect YLB MUCH B colour for me! Yay for Nars! Doesn't smell like nasty burnt plastic either.
Wow! It hid everything without making it look hidden! I couldn't believe how well it covered my undereye circles, plus it didn't even look like it was there. Easy to blend and Brulee was a perfect match for my skin. I especially liked the two different medium/heavy coverage formulas.
I like this brush, but I do use it with Becca concealor so that might be it. I keep it in my handbag and it's quite handly and blends the product well. I do wash it every two weeks though.
Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Light Nourishing Eye Cream

I have very sensitive eyes and this doesn't irritate them at all. A fantastic eye product, very nourishing and reduces the dark circles that I tend to get. I also have had milia and this doesn't irritate or clog up the skin around my eyes. Very nice, and not as expensive as a lot of eye treatments out there. I love the tube, much better than a jar.
I have this in #11 and it is absolutely beautiful. Great shades and formulation but my only complaint is that they don't stay on very long for something that's so expensive. Feels beautiful on my lips though.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Le Grande Kohl Eyeliner Pencil

These are great because they last ages and are very cheap, but they can be a bit too hard and difficult to blend I've found in my experience. I love Olive though.
Blush -L'Oreal - Blush Delice in Raspberry Sorbet ] [DISCONTINUED]

Nice blush given the brand, but the brush that comes with it is rubbish! Picks up the shimmer and not the blush and applies the product hideously. Raspberry Sorbet is a nice shade though.
Eyeliner -Revlon - High Dimension Eyeliner - Teal Flash

This looked like a fun colour and it is, but I don't think it suits my eye colour (dark brown). Made me look a little bit ill. Nevertheless, I was very impressed by the consistency and the packaging, very easy to apply. I personally preferred Garnet Flash, just in terms of colour, but this would look beautiful on somebody with blue or green eyes.
Eye Shadow -Stila - Italian Ices Trio in Due (Apricot)
antoniaisweird 11/7/2003 8:25:00 AM
I like Due, the colors suit me and as always Stila's packaging is great. But these are quite sheer compared to a lot of Stila eyeshadows, which surprised me. The consistency is quite different, even a little flakey, but all three shades are beautiful and stay on for ages, even though they just don't seem like most Stila eyeshadow. They all work well together and on their own.
Amazing amazing pencil. Great quality, soft but also quite solid, and the sponge on the end for blending is just fantastic. A nice range of colours too. You will love this eyeliner!
Lovely fragrance, lasts ages and just gets better throughout the day. A bit ordinary, but very wearable.
I like it, nice smell and consistency, but perhaps a bit too coral for me.
