Lipstick -Boots - No7 Wild Volume in "Forever Cherry"
lucky7597 12/7/2011 3:25:00 PM
First of all I am probably one of the biggest lipstick "freaks" around!! I am obsessed with lipstick and have probably spent millions on them!! With that said I must say this lipstick is really fantastic! I just purchased this and the color red is just gorgeous. It is bright enough to stand out but not too much so it looks "cheap or clownish". It is really high quality in staying power, smoothness, creaminess. It reminds me of the Chanel Rouge Coco lipsticks actually. It has the same consistency to me and staying power, etc. It has no big scent however like the Chanel lipsticks do. It had a slight hint of vanilla at first when I put it on but then disappeared right away which is fine with me. I am extremely picky about fragrance/taste in lipsticks and glosses. I believe that the $9.99 price is a steal for these. The black tube is very simple and lovely. It gives a little snap shut which is great. It really is wonderful! I will be purchasing more in the future for sure!!
Oh I wanted to love this! It is the biggest waste of money I have shelled out in a long time!! I bought Garnet which is really lovely but it does not last at all. I am very disapponted. The only fantastic thing about it is the gorgeous packaging. It comes in a GORGEOUS long "dispenser" tube that you click but it is not a liquid, it is a "solid" "stick" but thinner than the normal lipstick in the tube. Bummed out indeed!!!!
I am a lipstick FANATIC and came across this lipstick from ULTA one day for $3.50 in Golden Toffee without even really knowing the brand or anything. I got it home and WOW I absolutely love this! This lipstick is GORGEOUS on! It has a brownish/coppery shimmery look to it on my lighter pink pigmented lips. It is SOOO moisturizing as well. I even worked out in the color and it stayed on (which is really great since I sweat ALOT). I just can't believe how great this stuff is. I felt like going back and buying them all!!!! I am not sure of the price normally but I will be buying this again in the future when I am out of it!!!
Well I had both #670 and #740 already and had put them away and just recently took them out again of my stash and started using them again; WOW I really am impressed with this as I did not really realize the staying power of these at first when I bought them I guess. I went out and bought #570 Mystic Mauve and I have to say I love all of these. They really have great staying power. When summer rolls around I like to wear long wearing stuff on my lips. I went out and bought Estee Lauder's one in a Mauvy color (forgot the name) and it is horrible. I wasted $24.00 on it. The lip color is pretty but then the glossy part goes away in two seconds. It is a nice smell and taste but is horrible as far as staying power. The lips then dry out immediately!! These have a really nice gel texture and the lipstick part is actually moisturizing too. They rock I would buy these again for sure. Save your money on the expensive brands and buy these!!!!
First of all I have to say that this took me a long time to figure out how to open this product. Thank you to the other reviewer of this product because there was a picture of the thing opened! I am not "dumb" either! Other than that negative, the color is gorgeous and the product does not stink to me at all. It has a vanilla fragrance but no taste at all. I have just purchased this so I will see how long it wears. I am going out. I do say however that the color goes on smooth and is very very lovely to me on my rose pigmented lips. You can see it on and it looks very pretty I think! I would actually give it a chance and try it. :)
I have been using this line for about 6 or so years and I have to say without a doubt this is fantastic stuff. I LOVE the C Serum. I am a total makeup junkie and have tried everything probably in the mainstream market both non-organic and organic. This line is really good quality. I do realize the price is high for the serum. I have to say though that nothing comes close so I use it sparingly. You don't need tons on your face. I have used all their products except the apple line. I am a true fan of this line. They just introduced a mineral makuep line and I am trying the ivory color stick. It is a creamy foundation. I am hoping that it is as great as their products. I am always searching for a decent mineral makup that doesn't make the lines appear more magnifed like BARE MINERALS does! I hate that! The Incredible Pumpkin Peel rocks. That is another favorite of mine. Really whatever you buy will be great as I have complete confidence in this line so the price really is worth it. They also have sales so just watch for those!:)
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Babes Diamond Lips
lucky7597 12/6/2008 12:31:00 PM
I am absolutely in love with this product. I bought the Buxom Babes set at Sephora after trying the Celeste color on a friend had. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these. They last a long time, have a balm like texture on the lips but they add sparkle, tingle and gorgeous color. The Celeste is my favorite because it is light but shows up nicely on my lips. I actually had someone comment on what I had on the other night. I usually don't get that. I am a lipstick/lipgloss JUNKIE and truly am always looking for that "perfect" color!! I really think I have found something here. I actually am almost out of the Celeste color and am going to buy the full size. I love the others as well but this one is my favorite. You will not be disappointed with this - it ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought this today at Nordstrom Rack for 6.97! I have spent a fortune on these at Sephora in the past. I really like this one though. The peachy scent is delightful and has no taste so I like that. It is very shiny and not a lot of color but just a peachy sheen! I really like this and probably wont be buying these for full price every again. I can just go to Nordstrom Rack!!:)
Hair Color -Clairol - Beautiful Collection Semi-Permanent Hair Color
lucky7597 10/19/2008 7:21:00 PM
I am so impressed with this product. I can't believe I did not try this before now. I was in Sallys to find some lowlighting colors because I am a brunette usually but in the summer I go very very light brown to blonde. I wanted to go back to a dark shade for fall and was originally going to use this product for lowlights. I bought the red/violet shade. So it didn't really work for lowlights (too much of a pain to do myself) so I put it away and dyed my hair a mahogany brown color that came out really great (Loreal Crushed Garnet). Since my hair was so light to begin with the jnew color was a little lighter than I would like but still dark but not that dark rich color I want (I go to such extremes!!!!!) Anyway I decided to take that out and put that on my head because I wanted that deep mahogany/plumish look. Well wow did it come out great. It is so easy to use because it is premixed. All you do is open, put it on and wait 25 minutes. How easy is that? A friend actually came over a short while ago and said "Wow I love your haircolor". I will absolutely purchase this one again and again. What a find!!!!!
I hate hate hate to say this but I am disappointed that I did not like this as much as I thought I would - not because of the color but because of the staying power. It has none at all for me. I love the color and the packaging. The price is too high for this. I believe that this is really no better than NARS glosses in my opinion. Boy do I hate to say that because Chanel should be "the creme de la creme" of everything. The only glossimers I have ever had though are this one and the red one called Pulsar which is a red shimmer. I guess I had forgotten that I did not go nutso over it. I think however that I might like to try the other glosses Chanel has come out with.......
I completely agree with the above reviewer on this one. This is a gorgeous color. It is not coral at all on me either. It is the color of Paprika which is lovely. It does not have tons of shimmer but it does have that lustre look to it when put on. It does stay on the lips and to me has a slight clean fragrance to it when first applied. I never noticed this from any other lipstick from Nars. They don't really have a scent. The BEAUTFUL (no pun intended!) thing is that whoever packaged my order from Sephora did the poorest job I ever saw. It arrived in a box with N0 packaging inside at all. I had ordered the Beautiful Liar lipstick and 3 samples. The stuff was smashed but not broken (like the D & G perfume sample and the lipstick in its box. Everything else was torn. I have no clue whatsoever what happened to this order. Anyhow, I called and complained to Sephora and they are sending me a new full order free!!!! I am thrilled to have not just 1 but 2 lipsticks now!!! The samples are different as well because they sometimes change daily depending on stock. So yay all the way around! I love NARS but my wallet definitely suffers but the stuff is so gorgeous..................:)
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - MegaLast long lasting lipcolor
lucky7597 7/22/2008 2:35:00 PM
WOW what a bargain for this product! At 2.99 a pop you can't go wrong!! I bought this today just to try it out. I always usually buy the high end stuff but thought why not. I was very surprised at how moisturizing this is. I bought the #365 - a silvery pink. Very very nice! It shows up very nice but does not overpower at all. I took off 1 lippie on the packaging though because I really like the gloss part to have a brush instead of a sponge applicator. I am going to try others!!:)
This IS the product to have for your manicures! It is the only thing I have ever used (and I have used everything) that keeps your mani or pedi chip free and shiny as glass! This rules! NOTHING even comes close to this!!!!!!!:)
To me this is very expensive but worth every cent! It is such a lovely fragrance! It is very warm and spicy smelling on me and lasts all day long and then some! I got a gift set with the black bag, body cream and perfume. To me Chanel is the cream of the crop and it is worth paying more if you love love love it like I do!!
Gels/Soaps -Molton Brown - Purifying Grapeseed Anti-Oxidant Shower Gel
lucky7597 4/13/2008 5:39:00 PM
This is a wonderful fresh smelling shower gel. It has that clean smell to it like another reader said CK one. It's very thick and moisturizing and leaves a clean smell afterwards. I bought it on sale for something like 3 dollars at Bath & Body Works a few months back. I couldn't believe how cheap it was! The only problem is the packaging. It is not a flip top at all. That's the only problem I really see with this. I may try other Molton Brown products!
