I never would have thought about purchasing this, as my hair can be temperamental and I tend to stick with what works. However, I got this as a present, and decided to try it one day. Works really well for me! Controls frizz and gives me just the right amount of definition. My hair is pretty wavy now, so I could see this not working that well for someone with extremely curly hair, it doesn't seem to have that much of a hold, as a gel. It smells really good but the smell doesn't last long on me :/
Shampoo -The Body Shop - Ginger Shampoo Normal/Dry hair and Loose Dandruff

AMAZING product! I was suffering from a really dry scalp for a while. It was getting bad with flakes and everything. I tried all the drugstore brands, until I finally decided to give this a go (can be quite prciey). I've repurchased this 2 more times. It smells alright but the smell doesn't really stay in my hair so it's not a problem. It worked wonders with my scalp though, no sign of flakes since I started using it. Would definitely recommend. The Body Shop is always having a sale so it's easy to get it cheaper :)

It's very sweet, very girly, very teen. On me it lasted not even an hour! Though, I wasn't wearing it on a pulse point so maybe it's stronger there? I just put it on my arm. I was wearing my Chanel Chance on my wrist and could smell it more, even though I had had it on for more than an hour already but that was a pulse point so who knows. The bottle is adorable though! Just what I would expect from Taylor. I wish she would have done more of a woodsy, which I was expecting from her since she had said she likes those in the past. It's great for the younger crowd though!
Got it at a mall kiosk where they didn't take "no" for an answer. Loved it :) I also got a body lotion that smells like vanilla and coconut, scent is amazing and it absorbs tremendously into my skin. Wish the kiosk was still open :(
Pros: Intense black Nice volume, nothing too crazy though Cons: Smudges/flakes Difficult to remove Big brush Too much of a hassle for me. It takes forever to remove, I was going to get a new makeup remover anyway(running out), but if my current remover and cleanser AND towelettes can remove every other makeup and mascara products, that is not the problem.
Hair Removal -eos - Shave Cream Ultra Moisturizing Pomegranate Raspberry

How can people use this stuff?! I got it because it's from "evolution of smooth" (I wanted smooth legs!), the packaging is super cute and I had heard some good things on youtube. WORST. MISTAKE. EVER. I'm 21 so I've been shaving for a while and don't really cut myself anymore. I used this shaving cream and holy moly, it was like I wasn't using any cream at all! Horrible. And I have so many cuts! And it hurt so badly. I tried wet(less cuts) and dry(too many to count). I also tried using a lot of pumps but didn't want to use so much I wasted the whole bottle in one pump! Ugh, worst thing is I bought two because of a sale :/ I don't recommend this at all.
Dislike. Makes polish feel dry to touch however the polish doesn't end up smooth. It's so difficult to explain but the polish ends up all wrinkly, like if you would have slept on it or something. Plus it chips/cracks/falls off in no time.

I don't own this, I own the hand cream, but I can't find it here! However, I love it, it's moisturizing and the scent is amazing, very nutty :)
Moisturizers -Chanel - Hydramax Oil-free Moisture Gel

I love this for my combination skin. It moisturizes my skin without leaving it feeling oily or heavy. I hate the price though!
At first I didn't like it because it was sheer but now I love the delicate wash of color. It's like your nails, just milkier, so gorgeous :)
Love this! I was using Poshe, but I hated that my nails chipped the next day and got worse everyday after. While it doesn't dry as fast as Poshe (It may bubble if you put it on right after you put on nail polish so let it dry a might and it may get minor sheet marks if you do them right before bed). It does dry fairly quickly though and I started getting chips about 4 days in and they are minor. I am really rough with my nails so I always expect chips by then. Edit: It makes my nails get some ripple effect and they peel off! :(
Do they still sell this?! I forgot about it but I do like it. I want to go and see if I can find it now :P I use it on random hairy places, like arms, and stuff. I don't know how it works on coarser hair but on my thin, smooth hair (that I've never shaved off) it's amazing. It won't smell good, no cream does from my experience, but it's not that bad. I quite like this.

I don't know how well this works on legs but I used it on my arms (which have an abundance of soft hairs). I did find I used a lot of it though. But I put it all over and after 6 minutes used a wet towel to take it off and it worked perfectly. It did stink but I just had it on for 6 min so it wasn't a big deal. My arms are super smooth and lovely now :)
Eye Primer -Chanel - Eye Shadow Base (Base Ombre a Paupieres)

I had never tried this before but I went to the Chanel counter and they used it on me for a mini-makeover. This stuff is amazing! I accidentally fell asleep with my make-up on (long night) and when I got up, though my eyeliner and my mascara wasn't in optimum condition, my shadows still looked great! No creasing after 10+ hours. It's too expensive for me, but otherwise it's great :)
I like Katy Perry but I'm not the type of person who goes crazy over perfumes just because they belong to a certain celebrity. They usually all smell similar to me and too floral for my liking. I was looking for perfume for me with my favorite notes (vanilla, coconut and sandalwood) and this popped up. I kind of brushed it off for a while but they had a bottle at Nordstrom's and I tried it out and am a proud owner of a purple cat. Smells divine on me, not too fruity and not too floral. I love it! The design of the bottle is cute, I guess, I don't like cats, but it's kinda sweet :P
