OH MY GOSH. I got this as a sample at The Body Shop and it smells so good. It reminds me of an older woman's scent, but re-vamped for a younger crowd. It's crisp and fresh and smells amazing. Great for really any occasion...I'm really considering buying this in the large bottle.

Wow, I think I'm the only person that actually likes this product. I don't think it brightened my eyes too well, but it's a nice black shimmery mascara. My eyelashes are medium length but the are straight (downward). This mascara makes my lashes look long, full and keeps a curl .I was really satisfied with this product and will purchase again.
This is my usual daily fragrance. Its a youthful, girly summertime scent...it smells like fruit and candy. Its fun scent, but after wearing it for extended amounts of time it can get annoying...but that's just me, haha.
Looooove this stuff! I spray this into my hair when its dry to leave a nice, beachy scent. I got it when B&BW was having their big Yellow Tag sale, so I got a large $12 bottle for about $3.60...score! It's a nice, girly fragrance without being too bubblegum-unicorn-princessy.

I personally like this product. I use it along with the brand's Grapefruit Mango Butter shampoo, and the combination leaves my hair soft and shiny. My hair seems to fall out less when dry than it did with my last shampoo that was made with a lot of chemicals and sulfates. It wasn't too extraordinarily expensive-$6.99 at my local Rite Aid- and I love the fact that it's organic and not tested on animals.
I bought this a while back when they were having a sale at Wal-Mart when this first came out. I had seen the ads and heard the hype, so I thought I'd try it (in the waterproof, of course; only waterproof keeps my lashes curled). Hey, it was $5! So I used it. It kept the curl in my lashes overnight, and it lengthened them well. The only thing I don't like about it is that if I curl my lashes incorrectly (when they get slightly crimp-y) and I apply this, it seems to show every single flaw in my lashes...but other than that, it's a great drugstore mascara.
Ugh...I received a sample for getting I believe 100 points on my Sephora Beauty Insider Card. I don't like this mascara. My lashes are long, but they are straight and have no curl whatsoever. I used this in the hopes that my lashes would be curled and voluminous. I was mistaken. Even after I thoroughly curled my lashes, there wasn't much curl to be seen and my lashes drooped a bit. I guess it's a love-it-or-hate-it product :/
My friend got me this along with some other products from B&BW, and I absolutely love this (I'm wearing it now!). I use this mostly on my lips, and it leaves them extremely moisturized and soft. The smell is pleasant -apples and roses, naturally- and it applies smoothly. The packaging is a nice round tin with apples and flowers on it. I will absolutely purchase this again.
I love these so much! This was the first package I had picked up of these...they were so easy to apply (it just took a little time and patience) and they lasted me a bit longer than a week. The design was great (sparkly champagne with black fishnet pattern) and they came off well with regular polish remover. Whenever I want patterned nail art I go straight for these! An excellent product.
This is my go-to lip balm. The packaging is cute, the scent/flavor is pleasant, and the product is excellent. It works better than regular tube lip balms for me. My lips get so dry and chapped; this helped a lot.
I love this blush. The color is a dark rosy-coral with a hint of shimmer. The pigments are very rich-maybe too much so- but that isn't too big of an issue if you apply just a small amount. It gives a nice flush and works for my fair-medium tone...it would be beautiful on women of color.
I used to use this product when I was a bit younger and it had irritated and (figuratively) burned my skin. I went to Sephora a month or so ago and I was looking for something to help with my breakouts around my nose, chin and T-zone. The associate helping me suggested this product, and I told her about my previous problems with this...she explained to me that this product should be used mostly as a spot-treatment, not the whole face, and she also told me that my skin would build a gradual tolerance to it. So I bought it...I use it on a fairly regular basis, just one swipe on a cotton pad/ tissue on the areas needed, and my breakouts have mostly been taken care of. I wouldn't use this for my whole face, just those areas where I need it most...hope this helps! :)
I really like the color of this product- a nice, fruity dark pink. The application is smooth, and it feels really natural, not gross and artificial. The only downfall is the applicator- it's a tube with a brush tip and you twist the end to get the actual product. It's not my favorite applicator, but I think it works for this.
