WOW! WOW!! WOW!!! MUA definitely pulled through when they recommended this product! I have been using it for 2 to 3 weeks, and have noticed a dramatic increase in length and thickness of my eyelashes. I am taking a break from mascara, and using only this product both at night and in the mornings. My eyelashes have gotten so much longer and thicker and I don't think I'll go back to using mascara (only for special occasions). It makes me wonder just how thick and long my lashes can get with continued use. I will keep MUA posted on this. The product is expensive, but worth it in my opinion, because it produces real results. Much better than Mavala double lash...and doesn't irritate like Mavala (at least in my experience).
This is my summer lotion! The smell is very tropical....and reminds me of pina coladas on the beach! Perfect for summer! It moisturizes well (IMO better than most BBW lotions), but I buy it for the fragrance. If only I could find a winter fragrance I like just as well!
This is a very nice smelling Yankee candle. Sometimes I do not like vanilla scented candles, because they sometimes smell like cigars. Yankee French Vanilla does NOT have this problem. It is a perfect vanilla fragrance, that will smell an entire room. In my opinion this scent is not seasonal, so it can be burned all year long.
This is one of my favorite yankee candle scents. It is a very clean smell, perfect for spring and summer. Also, it goes well in bathrooms.
This is a beautiful red for the holidays. It is a deep red, with a metallic sheen. I cannot stress that this is the perfect color for all the holiday parties! I am always pleased with OPI's quality.
I like this scent, it is very sweet. This is what I wear in the winter, and I have also layered it with vanilla lotion. To me, it doesn't smell like marshmellows or cotton candy. I actually smell more of a sweet minty scent. I think I will buy again, but that depends on whether or not I will get sick of it. It is a nice smell, and it lasts.
Overall, this is a decent lipgloss tin. I like the colors, and I purchased it at Sephora, so I appreciated being able to try the product before purchasing. The staying power is average for a lipgloss. The biggest pain (and reason I will NOT purchase again) is that there is no application wand. During the day, I am either using an extra q-tip or my fingers, which makes a mess if I'm away from home. In summary.....Good colors, average staying power, where's my wand?? I will not buy again until they have it come with a wand!
This product leaves my hair so silk smooth and soft!! I am surprised that everyone loves the scent, I thought it was too perfumy for me. It does smell good, but not the fragrance I prefer in a shampoo/conditioner. Nonetheless, it does leave my hair so soft that I would purchase it again.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Coconut Lime Verbena

I do not hate this scent, but I will only wear it on a summer day when I'm not going anywhere special. It smells a lot like tanning lotion for laying out. I could take or leave the fragrance, which is why I wouldn't buy it again. The things I like about the product are the subtle shimmer (not too glittery and the shimmer has staying power)....and it is a tinted moisturizer to make your skin appear darker.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Exotic Coconut

I liked this scent. This is definitely one of the best coconut scents I have smelled. However, I purchased the shimmer lotion, thinking that it would be a more subtle shimmer (much like the coconut lime verdana lotion)....but it was very glittery. After a few hours, it looked like I just dumped glitter on myself. It got all over everything, my boyfriend....my clothes, my sheets and towels....and it didn't easily come off. My boyfriend kindly asks me to refrain from wearing it around him anymore because of the glitter. I would consider purchasing the non-shimmer/glitter formula again. I normally like shimmer lotions. I also experienced the burning sensation when I put this on. Oddly, I thought it was just me....but my skin isn't sensitive, and I do not know what could have caused that reaction.
This is the HOLY GRAIL of mascaras!!!! I have tried others, only with disappointment....I will use the others once and throw them away. They don't live up to the promises of volume like Max Factor 2000 Calorie. I also hope they never discontinue this!! Its awesome.
I liked this product. I usually use salon products, and Biolage is my favorite. My friend recommended it to me, so I decided to try it. I did like the smell. I didn't think it was anything extraordinary, but it did the job.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Cherry Blossom Body Lotion

I like Bath and Body Works, but this product was a disappointment. I received it as a gift, and I did not like the smell. It smelled like laundry detergent mixed with cherries. I do love their cotton smelling lotion though. Thats great! I never really was very fond of smelling like fruit. My boyfriend didn't like the smell either.....I ended up exchanging it for a coconut scent for the summer!
Lip Liners -Revlon - Colorstay Lip Liner in Nude 630

I have always used this liner. This is the best nude color that I've found. It goes on perfectly and withstands the test of time. It looks good with most lipsticks that I use. I hope Revlon never discontinues this!! I will use it forever!
Blush -L'Oreal - Blush Delice in Strawberry Tart [DISCONTINUED]

This is a great pale pink blush. If you are looking for a subtle pink blush...this is it. I also like how it shimmers a little bit. I paid $9.00 for it, and it comes in a nice package with a mirror. I will happily buy again!
