i am super allergic to this oil. broke me out in a red inflamed rash. ladies with sensitive skin beware.
Frost city! I like the formula and the color would be nice, but it is sooooo frosty. Makes me look like a 1980's porn star. So sad, because the pink is pretty and without all of that silver shimmer, it could be a great buy.
Powder -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder

i used to wear this as foundation all the time. it gave me excellent coverage with no allergic reactions (a rare thing for me). it's very buildable, so i didn't bother with concealer. i really loved it. the brush was way too scratchy, so i tossed it. the reason i stopped wearing this is because they didn't make a color that matched my skin. i'm nw15 and this always looked a bit too yellow or orange on me. it can get cakey if you re-apply too often. i would totally buy this again if i could find it in a paler shade. maybe i'll go look and see if they've come out with one yet.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Palette - Greed [DISCONTINUED]

bought this product because of the reviews and hype about the new wnw line. hated it. threw it away. the colors are ok, but the texture is just so chalky and there is so much fall out. i hate to say it but this is cheap eyeshadow that looks and feels like cheap eyeshadow. i won't be trying more wnw.
yet another product that i'm allergic to. the first day i wore it and was fine. the second day i wore it and my face became hot and flushed. unfortunately i was not at home and could not wash it off, so i had to wait for hours, all the time knowing that something i was allergic to was sitting on my face. ugh. when i did wash it off i had small white heads all over my face, not normal for me. the packaging sucks and the included brush is worthless. i feel bad, throwing it away, since i just bought it.
Treatments (Eye) -Burt's Bees - Radiance Eye Cream with Royal Jelly

another burt's bees product that doesn't do much for me. it moisturizes but it doesn't help with dark circles or puffiness. it smells nice. it has way too much mica powder in it, which is very shimmery. makes your eye area shimmery and white. i only used it at night for this reason. kind of a bummer, because i really wanted to love this product.
Fragrances -Parfums de Coeur - Body Fantasies Cotton Candy

every stripper i know wears this scent! hahaha! it smells like sugar, bubblegum and strawberry milkshake. staying power is good for a body spray. it's girly and fun. not sexy, just a nice sweet candy scent. super cheap! for whatever reason i like the smell of this better than pink sugar.
i like this stuff but i can't tell if it really plumps my lips. it does sting a little bit and leave my lips super glossy and noticably pinker. i like this when i'm not in the mood for color and just want my natural lips but better. tastes like cinnamon oil.
Lip Treatments -Alba Botanica - Coconut Cream Lip Balm

smells good. taste like sugar. colorless. kind of gritty. i love coconut, but i'm not crazy about this because of the texture. maybe i got a bad tube. it is moisturizing but not as smooth as i would like.
this does not smell like soap on me. it smells like baby powder and vanilla with soft florals mixed in. it's inexpensive, comes in a pretty bottle and lasts all day. a good scent to wear to work or dinner with the family. not too bold or sexy. just a soft feminine scent.
i love the fragrance of this. it's very rich and warm. it makes me feel glamorous. a little of this on my wrists is plenty, as it's very heavily scented. amazing staying power, lasts all night. the only problem with this lotion is that it isn't moisturizing. it kind of dries out my hands actually. so one lippie off for that.
bought this on a whim when i couldn't find aveeno and was in a hurry. first thing i noticed is the super floral perfume. my husband hated it. he said i smelled like a grandma and it was giving him a headache. lotion works fine. the scent is way too strong and way too much like cheap perfume. my husband refused to use it and made me give it away to a friend. on the plus side, he bought me a really big bottle of aveeno a few days later.
without this my world would be a little less bright. smells yummy. taste a little sweet. makes lips soft and shiny. gives a slight pink tint to mouth. cheap. perfect. i buy these in bulk and keep them in every purse. the perfect pre-kiss balm. not sticky or greasy. love it! i would give it ten lippies if i could.
Blush -Bare Escentuals - Warmth All Over Face Color

this was way too dark for my nw15 skin. no matter how lightly i applied it and how much i blended it. my husband made the comment that i looked sunburned or bruised. not cute! i gave it away to a tan girl.
Primer/ Corrector -Bare Escentuals - Bare Vitamins Skin Rever Upper

i used this off and on for a few weeks. i didn't notice any improvement in my skin. i didn't notice any improvement in my makeup application or staying power. i did notice that it made my face feel dry AND look shiny. something i didn't think was possible. i tossed it. i have no idea what this is supposed to do for people. for me it was useless.
