This is a deep shade of blue, almost like a navy. I use a basecoat and top coat and it looks nice until about the 3 or 4 day mark. But it's like that with any polish unless you get a gel polish. I think the color looks sophisticated for those few days you get before it chips. I would definitely buy again.
I would never buy this again. The wand is too close to the cap, so it's hard to angle it properly for application. The primer does nothing to make lashes longer. Nothing. And the worst part are the FLAKES! Huge, uncontrollable FLAKES underneath my eyes at the end of the day. This also made my eyelashes droop. For $10, this is the WORST quality drugstore mascara I've tried in a long time. SAVE YOUR MONEY and spend an extra $10-15 to get a quality product. This mascara is horrible.
This has light coverage, and is moisturizing, however it's not for the acne-prone. Broke me out.
The scent is nothing like the perfume, it's way stronger. Overpowering! This is for those who need to be bowled over with strong fragrance. Not worth the $ in my opinion.

ORANGE ORANGE ORANGE! Hideous. Do not buy. Very cheap quality. You would have thought I bought this from the Dollar Store.
Breaks me out. Part of the Acne Solutions line through Clinique. Good coverage, but little bit of a waste of time when you end up getting more zits from using it.
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - britney spears CIRCUS FANTASY

At first when I smelled this in Kohl's with my boyfriend, we both liked it. So when I saw this at TJ Maxx, I bought it. Well, the initial scent is nothing like the dry down. It starts out sweet and pleasant at first, but then it smells soapy and horrible -- I almost couldn't believe that I was smelling it, because it changed so much. I just don't think it's quality. It doesn't last either. The bottle is pretty, but how much can you do with a pretty bottle and stanky perfume? This is the first Britney perfume I've ever purchased, and it will probably be the last.
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Chocolate Chip Cookies 3-in-1
erinfashionista 2/10/2010 9:23:00 AM
I can't really smell it. It barely smells like cookies. They are expensive for what you get. It lathers up ok, but the smell was definitely disappointing. Not worth the price, even though they were on sale.
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Spicy Pear Cobbler 3-in-1
erinfashionista 1/31/2010 12:03:00 PM
I got a small bottle of this in a gift set, and out of all the scents I think this smells the worst. I was thinking that it would smell like a fresh pear, but it doesn't even smell like that to me. It just stinks, smells weird. I'm not sure what a pear cobbler is supposed to smell like, but this isn't it. I wouldn't buy this.
Sounds like a great idea, I just wish it worked. This looks cakey on my face, and looks totally unnatural. At the end of the day I'd look in the mirror and my makeup looked like it was almost completely gone. It doesn't set makeup properly, which I would assume it's at least partially for, not just for redness. My least favorite of all the Clinique powders, by far. Not recommended.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Lipgloss in Strawberry Fizz
erinfashionista 1/22/2010 5:04:00 PM
This smells great, has a nice shimmer. I love the scent. It's very sweet and pleasant. Not for everyone though. It's not really that sticky, but it does feel more substantial than Bonne Bell type glosses, and it lasts longer too. I guess it's just not as thin. It's one of my favs, I put it on all day at work.
First of all, this product isn't meant to be taken seriously. It's a super-sweet scent, not a sophisticated madame scent. If you can get over that, and you love super-sweet stuff, then you will love this. I got 3 of these for $2 a pop at VS. It does kinda smell like strawberries, but more like sugar and a little bit of strawberry. It's sugar pop fun and fizz! It puts me a good mood, because it's just simple and sweet. Reminds me of my favorite strawberry lotion when I was a teenager. It has dimethicone in it, which is supposed to be moisturizing, but unfortunately really isn't.
I went in to the Bon-Ton and the Lancome lady recommended a bunch of makeup based on my skin tone. That was 3 years ago. I still have this blush, as it obviously lasts forever. It may be expensive, but if you take that amount and divide it by the years you'll use it, it's not that expensive at all! This gives me a nice, warm color that I definitely was not expecting from a blush this shade. But it's great stuff, just has that lil' somethin'.
Doesn't do what it's supposed to do. Doesn't work and is overpriced to boot.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Skin So Soft Gelled Body Oil
erinfashionista 11/2/2009 9:20:00 AM
I got this as part of a set, and I wouldn't have ordered it by itself otherwise. It leaves a sticky residue on my skin, which cancels out any moisturizing benefits. I ended up throwing it out after only using it a few times. The scent is pleasant, but I don't like having skin that is sticky. One of the things I dislike the least is when I woke up in the middle of the night because my legs were sticking together because of this stuff. I tried only using it on a few body parts, but even then I could not stand the stickiness. I felt like I had glue on my body! It says on the bottle that it dries to a "light powdery finish" but that isn't true. This is one of the least favorite moisturizers I've ever tried. I definitely would not recommend.
