I love the smell of this. It smells like peaches to me. It conditions well and makes my hair soft and smooth but there's a small amount in the bottle and pretty expensive, since drugstore alternatives work just as well.
I have in in Charmed. I don't use it on cheeks because it's too shimmery, and not on lips because it's pretty dry and looks powdery on lips, and emphasizes lines. So I use it on eyes, and stays pretty well. Not that versatile for me, so no repurchase.
Lip Gloss -Jane - MegaBites Glossy Gloss in Splash
irritated 5/30/2003 8:03:00 PM
Sheer peachy bronze. It's a thin gloss in a slant-tip squeeze tube with a black cap. It's not particularly shiny, and tastes pretty good. I would repurchase but it's not thick enough for me--I don't like sticky glosses but this one's too thin and slippery.
Did nothing for me. It promised shine, but it felt greasy and gross, and didn't even deliver much "glass"-iness.
I know this had horrible results on some people and wonderful results on others, and I'm happy to be one of the half that it did. The cleanser cleans and exfoliates pretty well (I add some salt grains if I want extra exfoliation), the repairing lotion is a light lotion that is supposed to prevent acne and treat the existing ones, and I guess it works because I have clear skin! I don't know if the toner does anything, but I use it because it came with my order and it feels refreshing to pat on the cool liquid. This stuff worked for me, and although they give you a small amount (4 oz of cleanser and toner, 2 oz of lotion), I use it only at night, in tiny amounts, and I stretched out 1 shipment for 11 months! And I still had clear, soft skin! I do get blemishes (very few, though), but they are usually along my hairline where I don't use the products thouroughly on, and they are small, slightly pink, and go away within days. This system may not be for you, but they have a money back guarantee and it can't hurt to try.
Vanilla Frosting smells just like its name. The gloss is thin and wears off very quickly. It gives sparkly shine that can be a little too much if applied thickly. For the $3 price, it's great!
Shampoo -Suave - Naturals Tropical Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner

Went on a shopping trip, I had a dollar and some change left, so I went to the dollar store and bought this. It comes in 15 oz bottles with a blue cap and smells so delicious--sweet coconut scent. It doesn't condition as well as I would like, so 3 lipsticks--1 for smelling so good, 1 for being so cheap, and 1 for moderate conditioning.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - Moisture Shine Gloss in Glimmer
irritated 5/3/2003 12:06:00 PM
Gold/peachy color in the tube, a lighter, sheerer version on the lips. This is shimmery but not at all gritty, and has a lovely shine. It's not at all sticky, but creamy (not thin). I cannot stand the smell, although I usually like scents in lip products. I can't put my finger on what it smells like, but it's citrusy. Hence the 4-lipstick rating.
I got this in a swap--I pulled out the wand and smelled it first. Oh, my... This smells sooooo delicious, and just like the name (coffee and chocolate). It tastes nasty, though. On the lips, it is a perfect pink/brown YLBB shade, not brown like I expected. It has lousy staying power, but it's cheap and easy to reapply.
Blush -L'Oreal - Blush Delice in Raspberry Sorbet ] [DISCONTINUED]
irritated 4/26/2003 8:24:00 PM
This is an adorable blush. The compact lid is the color of the blush itself. The brush is very soft and works nicely. I can't smell the fruity smell others said, and I have trouble opening the lid sometimes, as it doesn't have a button or anything, and is so small for my clumsy fingers. The color shows up soft and shimmery and really brightens my face. Overall it's a nice product.
Pressed Powders -New York Color - Pressed Translucent Powder
irritated 4/26/2003 7:47:00 PM
I bought it after the raves here. The packaging is very minimalist, a mirror in the lid, the powder on the bottom, and space to put the sponge in in between. I applied this, and panicked when I saw it was white on my skin. But I blended and it melted into my skin without a trace. It didn't cake! I am very surprised at how nice this is for such a small amount of money (under $2) and will repurchase.
Soooooo cheap! I got this for under $3 at Wal-Mart. And it looks great. The pink color goes on with almost no streaks(something I hate in sheer colors). The result looks very professional. The only thing is I couldn't find the white tip strips. It said "Remove the strips from backing" and I didn't understand what they meant by that-- I tore up the box trying to find them with no luck. I guess they just were missing?
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip d'Votion in Strawberry Sweetie
irritated 4/21/2003 4:55:00 PM
I got it because the packaging was cute--it kind of makes up for the small amount of gloss. This is a light shimmery pink with plenty of delicious strawberry scent and taste. The color is sheer, but it shows up on me. Overall it's a nice product.
Treatments -Neutrogena - Overnight Therapy Replenishing Treatment
irritated 4/15/2003 9:40:00 PM
I have pretty good hair--I should hope so since I don't swim, heat-style, or color it. I tried this in hopes of making it softer. It does NOTHING. I sprayed it into my hair, combed, and went to bed. I washed it the next day, and found nothing different. The smell is absolutely atrocious. This stuff doesn't do anything good, but nothing bad, either.
This is a sheer baby pink color with shimmer. It is very sticky on your lips and last pretty long, but I'd rather have a slick gloss and reapply more often. The day I tried this, I'd also had a different hairstyle which kept falling in my face--and stuck to my mouth. The look is very pretty--light pink, subtle shimmer, and tons of shine.
