Love the clean soapy smell of this perfume! I wish I had a whole closet full of it. I would if it wasn't so expensive. I nicked a point off the packaging because when I bought the small bigger-than-a-sample size, the damn thing leaked in my toiletry bag ... with the cap on. Blargle.

Absolutely love this scent; I am a big fan of blackberry, musk, vanilla, etc. This lasts a long time (I have only ever owned the Extreme version; I believe the other version actually smells different). I love wearing scents everyone around me isn't wearing with this I am always guaranteed exclusivity!
I only own a few NARS items, but this is destined to become a favorite of mine, along with Captiva! I was afraid Afghan Red might be too purple when I saw it in the tube, but it's really nice red-plum on me while it's not identical to my daily staple, which is Bobbi Brown Raisin lipstcik (been wearing it for like 8 years now). Highly recommend for anyone but yellow-toned gals and the P'est of PPPs.
Love love love this product! Picked some up (semi) cheap in London and have been replenishing on eBay ever since. How will I ever go back to regular shapoo you can buy in a store?? This treatment made my hair softer, more glossy, and almost completely frizz-free. Can't recommend it highly enough. Very addictive though!

This product is horrible. I had high hopes and it made my hair look like straw! When I put it on my hair, it felt like glue, and after rinsing my hair didn't feel soft like it normally does after conditioning it. I almost died when I saw what it did to me. Thank god I saved my receipt from Sephora.
I am addicted to these dots. I would sell my own mother up the river for more! LOL. But seriously, these are the only things that I know will work overnight to drastically reduce the size and redness of a blemish overnight, and it can kill one completely in 2 nights. I even have my husband addicted to these now! Very highly recommended.
I've been using nail envy for almost 3 years straight as a base coat. My nails are like steel. They've bumped into things and snapped back without chipping the polish, never mind splitting or cracking. I wish it wasn't so expensive, though.
I just got into Chanel Glossimers. They are gorgeous glosses that really stay on but they're not sticky. The color/pigmentation is very intense, but you also can apply them lightly as a stain. Worth every penny! Some of the colors are weird though, like very bright or pale, so you might want to see them in person before buying.
I really love this light, fruity floral scent. I wish it was an eau de parfum so it would last longer, though.
I love Blu and used this up so fast! It's a very pretty and unusual scent. Hard to describe, best left to the individual nose.
Fragrances -Burt's Bees - Baby Bee Solid Perfume [DISCONTINUED]

I adore this scent. It smells just like babies should smell - kind of a warm, milky, apricotty smell. Just heavenly. This is a solid perfume in a small glass pot. If they sold it in spray form I would bathe in it! Lovely.
This stuff sucks. Seriously. It smells nice (lemony), and it does technically keep you dry. But it DOES make white marks on your shirt (unlike the lie in the catalog), there is no way to push or twist the stick up, which is just bizarre, and it costs as much as about 5 regular deodorants! Save your money and buy Secret Platinum instead!
I looooooove this stuff! It's pricey for the small amount you get but it works much better than any other cuticle remover you have tried.
The price is high for how little you get, but this stuff is great at sucking out the bad stuff from your pores. It does sting when you apply it, so it's definitely not for people with sensitive skin! Try to use it up fast, because it might dry up if you don't.
I had this briefly and had to sell it because of financial problems (got laid off). Oh, how I miss this perfume. I wish they sold it in a smaller size - it's kind crappy that they only have one size and it's like $100. Anyhoo, this is a subtle floral with a strong lily of the valley note. It really does meld with the skin and warm to it. Lovely,
