What I like the most about this hand soap is that it's anti-bacterial and the amazing smell. It reminds me of the old Herbal Essence Shampoo smell (or the Color Me Happy smell in the actual line) ! What I like less is that is so thick that it is hard to rinse off, and the drying effect on my hands. It's not that moisturizing.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Smoke Alarm
cocopetite 12/22/2012 6:38:00 AM
This eye shadow trio is really a good product. It provides three different shades of grey, and gives me a natural, work appropriate smokey eye. It is shimmer-free and pigmented. At this price, you can't beat it !
Gels/Soaps -Live Clean - Baby Tearless Shampoo & Wash
cocopetite 12/22/2012 6:27:00 AM
Smells heavenly ! I first smelled it in my nephew's hair and had to find where this beautiful smell came from ! My SIL used this product on him. I use it as a body wash only, and it is so soft on the skin. I also like the fact that it's made with certified organic botanicals and it's eco friendly. :) I know that it is available at Wal-Mart and at Pharmaprix (Shopper's Drug Mart).
Oh, I love this wonderful palette ! I was hesitant to order it from the Sephora web site because of the price (60 $ CND), but after reading all the positive reviews here on MUA, I caved in and bought it. I never looked back since then ! I love all the combinations that this product allows me to do, the colors are pigmented, natural and great for my fair complexion. I rarely buy such an expensive eye palette, but it was a Christmas gift from me to me, and I'm glad i indulged myself with it. :)
I'm so disappointed in this fragrance ! I ordered it based on the great reviews on the BBW web site, I didn't smell it before buying it (a stupid mistake, I know), because I wanted a fall-winter appropriate fragrance. The bottle is beautiful, but otherwise, I hated it. It gave me an instant headache and made me nauseous all through my work day. I was so eager to take a shower and taking off my clothes when I got back from work. I know that body chemistry and tastes are different for everyone, but it sadly didn't work for me at all.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Cocoa Twist
cocopetite 12/22/2012 5:54:00 AM
What a great find ! I'm so happy to have found them ! I have three jumbo gloss balms, and Cocoa Twist is my favorite. It's more a lip tinted balm than a gloss. It's a really natural color, not brownish at all on my fair complexion, it is more of a honey color, if that makes any sense. I reach out a lot for this product these days, even though I have about two hundreds lip products, lol. My only complaint is that I wish it would last longer, but being a lip balm, I think it is not made to last that long, so, no real problem there. ;)
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle
cocopetite 12/22/2012 5:45:00 AM
Pink Truffle is my favorite of all the Revlon lip butters that I have. It's a really nice color on my fair skin and doesn't have this gritty texture that Peach Parfait has. It lasts a couple hours and is moisturizing. No shimmer effect too, which is really nice ! I can wear it at work or at night, and it's perfect. My only complaint is that I wish it would last a little longer.
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - Youth Code Day/Night Cream
cocopetite 12/22/2012 5:39:00 AM
I'm in love with it ! I was a little bit skeptical by the ''day/night'' mention, as I was afraid it would be too greasy for a day time moisturizer. But it's actually the contrary that happened to me ; it is a great day time moisturizer, maybe not enough moisturizing for night (I live in Canada, so I need a thicker night cream because it's so cold outside, lol). It is not greasy, works well under makeup and smells amazing. I also have a very reactive and sensible skin, and I didn't have any reactions to this product.
A surprising product ! I have the one with the yellow packaging, and it works really well ! It's inexpensive, doesn't clumps and lengtens my lashes. A great day to day mascara, especially when you have no expectations, like I did !
Scrubs -Clarins - Smoothing Body Scrub for a New Skin with Bamboo Powders
cocopetite 8/9/2012 5:48:00 PM
I received this as a product to test for the ELLE magazine a few years ago, and I have to say that it's a really good body scrub ! It's expensive, I agree, but it is so smooth for my sensitive skin. It gives me a soft, clear skin.
Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Pure and Natural Hand Cream
cocopetite 7/19/2012 11:11:00 AM
Usually, I am not a fan of Nivea products, but I have to admit that this company sells the best hand creams in drugstore ! This one is made with argan oil. It moisturizes well, is cheap and smells so good ! A great buy.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers - Tapestry Taupe
cocopetite 7/19/2012 11:08:00 AM
I bought this eye shadow on a whim and am actually very impressed ! It gives a natural look, perfect for summer, and stays long on my lids. I am fare skin and this shade is really flattering on me. Normally, I like to apply three shades on my lids, but this one is enough, in solo, to give me the look I want. A great buy, as though as so inexpansive.
Lip Treatments -Maybelline - Baby Lips in Peach Kiss
cocopetite 7/19/2012 11:02:00 AM
This moisturizing lip balm is so a great and inexpansive buy ! It provides what it is supposed to, protects my lips with a SPF 20, has a good staying power and hydrates my lips. Plus, I really like its peach shade and the lovely smell as well.
I am in love with this lipstick ! I am fare skin, and this is a very flattering shade on my lips. It provides a great staying power and I love that it is non greasy or with glitters. The packaging is nice too. I bought a second tube just in case it would be discontinued ! ;)
I agree with a lot of others reviewers, I am not getting all the hype around this polish. It didn't provide me the beautiful pale pink that I saw in the bottle. It's takes forever to dry, is clumpy and is streaky. A big disappointment, as I usually really enjoy Essie's products.
