It's a fun color for summer. Bright, shrimpy pink, inexpensive, cute.
Dries way too fast and is very chalky looking. Plus, the colors run light, so beware.

Smells like lemon shortbread to me....or lemon sandwich cookies. Very sweet. It's ok, but I would not repurchase. I wish it was a more crisp, fresh, lemon scent.

I kinda liked this scent myself.....to me, it smells like orange blossoms and honey with just a hint of tea. Unique. However, bf smelled it, grimaced, and pronounced that it smelled like urine. Won't be buying it-too bad, the bottle is so cute, and price is decent.
Yummy! Top notes smell like lemon and limes, very fresh and crisp. It has an expensive scent to it, similar to the original Versace, but is less floral.....almost like a man's cologne, just because it is not sweet, but I think it smells a bit like one of those unisex fragrances. I wish the dry down smelled as good.....it loses a bit of the yummy lime freshness and smells more like the dry down of the original Versace. Still would re-purchase, though. Love the bottle, very classy-looking.
This smells a lot like BBW Coconut Lime Verbena to me. I like it, but I'd rather get the BBW for a lot cheaper. Coconut and a fruity accord, it's a nice scent. Love the bottle!
Stink juice!! Gives me a terrible headache. Bf said it smells like bug repellant and he doesn't want to be anywhere near me. The positive thing is, if this works well for you, it is quite long-lasting so good sillage for the money, as it's pretty cheap as well. Makes me nauseous, though.
I just started using this stuff, but so far it's working well and not irritating my sensitive skin the way other BP products sometimes do. Love the creamy, not grainy, consistency. I only use it to spot-treat, and use a white pillow case with it to avoid bleaching. Probably the best acne spot treatment I've found yet.
I was so disappointed in this color. In the bottle, it looks like this rich coppery, maroon-brown shade with lots of golden shimmer-gorgeous. But on my toes, it is boring. A plain brown with some nice coppery tones in the light. It is not a bad color-in fact it is understated enough to pair with about any fall outfit. It just wasn't what I was hoping for.
This makeup is seriously heavy! Maybe not such a bad thing for photos but NOT good for an everyday look unless you like a mask-y foundation. Too bad, the color was decent and the sparkles not obnoxious, and I love the SPF and the idea, but this stuff is just WAY too much, especially in the summer. I much prefer the age defying makeup, even the Color Stay glides on a little bit better.

I love the squeeze tube for this as it is handy for travel, but I don't like the makeup itself. It goes on white, and I thought it would have a very light, natural, dewy/glowy coverage, but it was actually a heavier-feeling makeup and seemed to just sit on top of my skin like a mask, although it did not cover flaws. What good is that? Revlon Colorstay is heavy too, but at least it covers. Anyway, the color was decent and I liked the SPF 20 and tube, but I definitely would not re-purchase
I actually like this mascara, just not as much as I like Neutrogena's mascara. This baby is adorably packaged-I love the bright green color and the brush is way cool. It makes it easy to use and to get those last little lashes. The formula itself is subtle, but nice. Anyone that wants a dramatic lash will not be happy with this one, but it's nice for a simpler, more understated look. It does define lashes nicely, lengthens just slightly, and doesn't flake or smear, which is great. I wouldn't repurchase because I will go back to my Neutrogena, but I will finish out the tube of this.
This stuff smells bad. I hate smelling it on myself after i have showered. Also, it is not as moisturizing as the regular Olay body wash, which I love. I didn't see any difference in whether or not it was actually age-defying....it does have niacinamide in it that the Olay face creams have, but whether or not that does any good in a body wash is hard to tell. I didn't see any benefits in the time it took me to use up my sample bottle. I would not buy this.

This stuff is a keeper! It smells yummy, it moisturizes skin, and it can double as a shave cream. I will definitely repurchase.
This polish was a little disappointing because the color wasn't quite what I was expecting from the bottle. However, it is still pretty, and fairly neutral. Like a more intense neutral...something that could be worn spring, summer or fall. It bubbles a little, but not too bad. It's noticeable after using OPI polishes, but since I'm only using it for pedicures it works fine. Overall, I am pretty pleased with the quality and cheap price and will buy more Revlon polishes.
