I am sampling and might purchase. I want to see how it is over a few days.
This nice for rose, but I really wanted pear. I also tried their rose sample and this smells identical to me upon dry down.
smells clean and fresh but lasts only 2 hrs on me. Not worth the price for that time.
Smells like a less powdery/dusty, less heavy BBW cherry blossom. I like it because it has a twist of fruit scent in there as well.
I liked this but the dry down is similar to Covet, which I already have. I love the bottle.I will put as rebuy because it is worth a try if you like heavier dry downs.

If you like a lighter formula, this is a great color. It does travel if I apply heavily, but it tastes better than most with a vanilla minty flavor. I treat this as a gloss more than a lipstick.

A nice summer orange red. Not as long wearing as most of my lipsticks, and the formula is on the soft side, but I love the color and the vanillaish taste.
Lotions/ Creams -Trader Joe's - A Midsummer Night's Cream-Unscented

This is light in texture and smells like fruit loops. The scent is very light and does not smell chemically like other unscented lotions, and to be honest is the main reason for my purchasing. I am only starting to be concerned about ingredients and I would love to have tried the old formula, so one lip pie off.
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - bronze Booster Shimmer Veil

I bought this for the super cute bottle. It sprays the powder in such a fine mist that it is only useful for my hair. And it smells nice. Does utterly NOTHING to bronze my face. This is simply gold glitter in an atomizer. an atomizer that machos my antique furniture which is the only reason I am keeping this at all. Useless as a bronzer.

I got a diluted smudge of this in my eye and it still stung the day. In all my life I never had such minor contact which happens to all of us sting so badly. I must be sensitive to the fragrance because my scalp was itchy as well after using this. It felt the next day like I needed to wash my hair again. I did like the conditioner.
Holds a curl. Lots of volume. Thickens a lot. Clumping and flaking are average but this survived a walk in the snow. Did not run for me. did I get a different tube than everyone else? Cuz the one I have is a total rebuy for me.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Smitten

I used this up. That says alot because I have so many products I never touch. Great staying power, and the packaging did not fall apart on me in my makeup bag every day. Will buy again, though I will look through what I have first so I am not wasteful. But I have a feeling I like this best.
This is a step in my pm routine. Makes my lips smooth and plumps then a bit, which is helpful. I have good skin already in my lips, so I cannot speak for someone who has severe chapped lips, tho.
A decent scrub, that is not irritating for me. I need to use it for a while and see if I break out, tho.
Ok so far in terms of how my skin is taking it, though I am not sure I want to mess with putting this in my palm and soaking and stroking it to a point where I apply it to my face. If it makes my skin great, it might be worth the effort.
