Candles -Bath and Body Works - Marshmallow Fireside
lilysdoll 1/15/2012 8:23:00 AM
I love Slatkin candles and this one is just a beautful scent for the fall and winter time. Its sweet..but not too sweet. Very comfy scent. I like the jar. I have a few different scents and variations of the Slatkin candles. They are some of the best. The fragrances are complex and have many notes to them. Thats what I love about what Harry Slatkin does for home fragrance. Its never just one note you are smelling and I think thats wonderful. So glad BBW carries these. I get them on QVC as well. Love them.
This is a very good conditioner. I leave it on overnight. It really has a very good ingredient list. Not alot of chemicals or filler. But its pricey. Its in a tub. So not as easy to handle as if it were a tube. Though the product is very rich in texture. I found that even after the one use my hair was different. I also use WEN conditioning cleanser. I like this better though. Does a great job. Only drawback is price. Only the quality is excellent. So you are paying for that. Its not a rip off. Just a higher end deep conditioner. Best I have tried so far.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Mitchum - Smart Solid - Powder
lilysdoll 1/15/2012 8:12:00 AM
This is my go to deoderant. I live in FL and I am always warm. This one seems to really work. I have tried so many. But I really like this. I like the powder scent or the rose petal scented ones . I find they keep me dry and smellng clean. I like a stronger antipersperant and this one really works.
I like this one alot. It doesnt last on me as long as I would like. But its a very feminine clean smell. I bought a set of the Clean EDP's from HSN. This was my fave. I like them all really. I think the only one that isnt my fave is the more outdoor smelling one. Otherwise...this is super easy to wear. Not offensive at all. Very fresh and pleasant. The bottle is nothing special to look at. But I think that reflects the simple idea of the brand. This one is a nice one for sure.
Concealers -Mally Beauty - Cancellation Concealer 3-piece system
lilysdoll 1/15/2012 8:04:00 AM
Mally's concealers are wonderful. This product does the job. The powder does not make anything dry or crinkly. The concealer covers so well. Especially that darkness we can get inside the corner of our eyes. I really like this. Also like her one thats in a tube called Conditioning Cancellation Concealer. Mally's stuff is high performance and easy to use. I really like alot of her things.
I got this one for me and my 7 year old niece. Its a bold purple. Not too bright. More of a deep rich purple. Pretty. It wore very well. I like it.
I like the Nicole polishes and this is a pretty lavender color. Not too dark or too light. Has a nice shine to it. Its not too frosty. But not a straight up cream either. Wears well. Very nice easy to wear shade.
Lipstick -Cover Girl - Continuous Color Lipstick in Bronzed Glow
lilysdoll 1/15/2012 7:41:00 AM
I have bought this color for years. I have one almost everywhere. My niece had it on years ago and I had to get it. I have loved it every since. I dont find it dark or muddy at all. To me its a nice bronze color that makes your lips look fuller. It brightens me up. Doesnt make my teeth look yellow like some shades of bronze can. I really like it. I will put it on then throw a gloss over it. Or wear it alone. But its my go to lipstick. A nice easy neutral.
While I really like this. I dont find that it wears well on me. It changes a bit and fades. Otherwise its pretty and I loved it from the first try. I think its a chemistry thing for sure. I love the bottle. I wore the original Poison back in the 80's. I like these new modern twists. I would say give this a try. If its goes well with your chemistry its lovely.
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - InStyler-Tre Milano brand
lilysdoll 1/15/2012 7:32:00 AM
I have purchased two of these. The original size barrel one in pink. I love it. Works so well for my bangs. I just love the ease of it. I dont use it alot to do my entire head of hair. Because I have it up or back alot. But when I do use it. It works wonderul for curls or smoothing. I liked it so much that when they finally came out with the smaller barrel one I got it for my Mom. My Mom had chemo and her hair has remained sort of kinky. It drives her crazy so I knew the Instyler would be perfect for her. At first she was very hesitant as she isnt into anything like curling irons or whatnot. But I told her to just try it. She love it ! Really smooths out her hair and adds volume too ! So we both love it. My SIL has one too. This is a wonderful product. I will replace it if it ever breaks.
I thought I loved this from the scent strip in a magazine. I ordered it online. While I like it. I dont love it. I dont find it very appealing. But that might just be on me. Its nice but to me kind of boring. I know it has a huge following and it had a time when it was super popular. I find it a bit to gender neutral to me. I tend to like a more girly scent. I am going to keep using it once in a while or just pass it on to someone in my family. I would say try this one. See how the chemistry is on you.
This is one of the few brow products that I have repurchased. I love it. I used to use the one in the pot and found that great as well. But I am always just in a rush. So this one is perfect. Goes on easy. Stay put. Love the gel side that just finishes off the look. Really nice product. Overall I love Smashbox. I like that you dont need a sharpener for this. The taupe works well for me. Nice product.
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Gingerbread Girl - 3in1 Foaming Bubble Bath/Shower Gel
lilysdoll 1/15/2012 7:16:00 AM
I just got this one on sale after Christmas. OMG...I love it. Mix it with Cinnamon Buns cause I like a bit of a more creamy moisturizing formula. But the smell of Gingerbread Girl is so refreshing and sweet. Its hard to explain. Its not like the Gingerbread Man. That one is more of a gingerale smell. Gingerbread Girl is more sweet..cirtusy..but just a bit. I love it. Its a comforting scent. I will definitely buy this again !
This is one of my staples too. Its a comforting smell. But not food like. So I like that about it. Sometimes I dont feel like CInnamon Buns. Its feminine so not for guys. Smells clean and fresh. Not a baby powder note in this anywhere. I love Baby Grace. Have all the products in this line and have repurchased a few times. There is something about this that is just comforting. I love it.
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - The Gingerbread Man Foaming Bubble Bath & Shower Gel
lilysdoll 1/15/2012 7:09:00 AM
I like this one alot. Its not a gingerbread cookie smell though. Its more of a fresh gingerale smell. Very sparkling to me. I like to mix it with Cinnamon Buns because I like the extra moisture from that one. Smells wonderful. Gingerbread Man is not overly sweet. Its comforting and fresh. I gave these as Christmas gifts this year. Everyone loves it. I think the whole family could use this one too. Its not overly feminine. I will repurchase.
