Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Aromatherapy OPTIMISM Bright Blossoms
cypresschica 1/11/2009 10:54:00 PM
First of all, I can't believe the first review on this product...this is a great scent. It is not a strong floral...yeah, it's sorta flowery, but it's also got citrus in it too, which I really love. This scent is just terrific. It really does lift my spirits. I often find myself applying the lotion in the 2 oz size when I am at my desk. I can't wait till it is released in the stores, because I plan on getting this one for sure. Great product!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Coconut Lime Verbena - any product

Let me just go ahead and tell you now that this is among my top favorites in BBW scents. I have several favorites. I can't exactly narrow that down...it'd be way too hard. This scent is amazing...it smells like you're on vacation! I primarily like to use this in the warmer months because of that reason, but part of me really does think you'd could use this anytime really...especially if you really want to sorta get away from it all...and dream if you were on a tropical island!! But seriously...it is great...and I've repurchased this a few times already. I have the Edt, and like others have said...it's not so great, but if you layer your scents like I do, it's not really a problem! I have that and the lotion, bubble bath, and body spray, and I love them of course. Great scent...if you haven't tried it...try it today!
This and the pon pon gerbera are my favorites from Stila so far. This one has to be the perfect neutral palette--ever! I mean, you can take this palette and wear the colors to work, out shopping, or just where ever except for night time. All the colors blend together so perfectly...and I love how it includes it's own blush to wear...it's a look that's already been created...it's just missing it's lip color...but I really really love Stila's It gloss in sweet...that'd be a perfect lippie to wear with this. :)
This has to be one of my favorite products from Stila, other than the blanc palette! This is absolutely perfect for daytime wear. I tried it on tonight, and was so pleased. I also got it from beautycrunch like many of the other reviews. Most of the Stila products I have tried are great, and this one is definately no exception! I highly recommend this product---go and get it today!
This palette is gorgeous. I just got it tonight, and I can't wait to use it. The blue that comes in this palette I know I'll love because I already have a few blues, and I love how the blue colors always look on my eye crease area! It's beautiful. I am also a huge fan of Stila products as of recently...and my collection of them is growing! Yeah!
I just got this in the mail today! And...I really like it. The color is beautiful. I am not sure what the previous revier was thinking when she was saying it looks like you just ate greasy food? What the heck? Anyways. I don't have very pigmented lips, and this is a nice sorta shimmery plum on me. I really like it with the pon pon gerbera eye palette!
I guess you could say I am pretty pleased with this mascara, dunno if I am pleased enough to call it my HG yet...but hopefully soon I'll find an HG mascara for me, seems that's hard for me, especially mascara. This mascara has the coolest tube. Green. I love the spunkiness of this color...I mean, when I pull out my makeup box...and see this green tube in it, it makes me smile! It's the little things in life, ya know? I love the wand. It doesn't ever get clumpy on my lashes either, and it wears well, never smudges or anything. And that says a lot for a d/s brand. I'll probably keep buying this until I find my HG mascara :-)
Lotions/ Creams -Davies Gate - Pink Grapefruit lotion
cypresschica 1/5/2009 3:26:00 AM
This is one of the worst products I've tried lately. I got it with a Merch. credit from Ulta, and it's a good thing it was on a merch. credit because if I would have known it was terrible, I would have never bought it. To me, this smells somewhat like pink grapefruit, but not exactly. It does have sort of a sour smell to it other than pink grapefruit which is what most of the other reviewers said. It's dry down is awful too...it loses whatever scent it had so quickly. I hate that in lotions! Needless to say, I wouldn't buy any more Davies Gate products. I've also broken out from the bath bomb...which I had hoped I'd like, but I don't :/ Can't return it either because parts of the set would be missing as I have already used them. Definately not a good product!
Lip Gloss -Too Faced - Fuze Slenderize Lipgloss Dragonfruit Lime
cypresschica 1/3/2009 9:53:00 PM
I just got these a couple days ago at Sephora inside JCPenney...and I am so disappointed in this. I had been eyeing this for SO long, and needless to say...it isn't that great of a gloss. The smell...yeah, it's okay...sure can't smell any of the lime, it's mainly dragonfruit that I am smelling. Staying power? Horrible. It maybe lasts less than 30 minutes on me. Pathetic. And it's got no hint of a color to it, it's just clear. And since I can't take back anything on clearance at their Sephora, I'm stuck with this mediocre to poor gloss...guess I'll just try and use it up, prolly on my lo-to-hardly any makeup days. :/
I just got this product, and I really like it. I don't know why it's called rose, because to me...it doesn't exactly resemble the color of a rose. When applied on my lips it sorta gives a nice put together look, I don't know how to describe it. I wore it today with stila's all over shimmer-eyes, UD's mary jane in the crease, the blush from stila's blanc palette, and clinique almost makeup in #2, and it looked great! Definately one of my favorite lippies!
I just got this a couple days ago at the Sephora inside JCPenney's, and can I just tell you...this is beautiful. I am assuming it's being discontinued. This almost looks exactly like LORAC Serenity did, but I paid half of what I paid for LORAC Serenity. You can bet I was pleased. I did just an average wash, with another stila corner in the crease today, and several people loved the look I created, so I am inspired to use it more often. I'd also say it's a very buildable color. If I ever run out, I hope I can spot some because I'd love for this to be part of my stash! It's great :-)
Lip Gloss -Too Faced - Mirror Mirror Gloss - Envy Me

I had really liked these when I first bought them which was a few weeks ago, but I had gotten back into balms again, and was tired of the stickiness on my lips. These are fine if you like stickiness to a lipgloss. Even the flavors are good, but the stickiness factor does it for me. Back to the store these went.
I just got this at the Sephora inside JCPenney's a couple days ago, and am wearing it for the first time today. I love it. I was very unsure about how it would look, but I really liked it paired with this stila color that I had on the lid, and I put this color in the crease. It looked really good! I went to JCPenney's today and several of the sa's there commented on how good it looked! This was on clearance, so I am so glad I got it. If I ever run out of it, hopefully I can catch it somewhere because this would be a repurchase for me.
Lip Gloss -Korres - Cherry Full Color Gloss in Plum 27
cypresschica 12/31/2008 5:03:00 PM
I just tried Korres products, and honestly...wanted to like them, but sadly I just don't. No matter how hard I try, and this product is no exception. It just doesn't deliver in any way. The horrid smell, and I do mean horrid. The vanilla plum lotion and shower gel that goes with this product...HORRID. It doesn't even smell like vanilla OR plum. Big disappointment in my book. And to make matters even worse, it is an all natural product, and it's either this, or a Lush product that makes me break out.
I am not as interested in palettes anymore. I used to think they were all the rage. Wow, so not the case anymore. This is one of the worst by far. The eyeshadows are not even pigmented. Yeah, maybe a COUPLE of them are pigmented, but I have what...71 eyeshadows in here? All of them should have some sort of color pay off. Not at all. At least definately not here. The lipsticks? Oh man. What a mistake. Seriously. And, it's not like I've tried to make them work because I have. Last but not least...the blushes...they don't stay on long at all. All in all, this palette stinks. Back this palette goes. Don't even waste your money!
