I am absolutely obsessed with this colour, or any similar shades of pink, like the MAC Lady Gaga lipstick. But I think I like this lipstick better than the Gaga lipstick; it doesn't wash me out as much. It's inexpensive and has a nice scent. I wore this lipstick everyday for like 2 weeks. It's like my go-to lipstick for just about everything. The reason why I only gave this a 4 though was because I just wish it had better staying power. I am constantly reapplying this lipstick. However, without a doubt, I'm repurchasing. The colour is just fabulous!
I am really impressed with this product, and currently, this is my favourite foundation. Haha, but it always changes from time to time anyways. Now, I just want to start off my saying, don't get this if you don't have acne (lucky you). I have very mild acne (unfortunately, who loves acne?) so I decided to give this a try. I was originally looking for a MAC liquid foundation or concealer, but I stumbled into the Clinique counter, and realized their makeup is all fragrance-free and hypoallergenic, because my skin is sensitive. So I started looking at their foundations and trying different shades. I have this in the shade 02 fresh ivory by the way. So I bought this $30 plus tax it was like $35; it's like $23 in the U.S. I think. But I was impressed for the price, because usually Clinique is more expensive than that. This bottle contains 30mL of product in it. I think it gives amazing coverage, it's extremely easy to blend and I like to put a powder over it to set it. But you don't even have to use a powder over it if you didn't want to. It doesn't look cakey which is usually my biggest complaint when it comes to powder or foundation. What I love most about this product is that it feels so light and thin on your face!! It feels like your practically wearing nothing. It certainly gets rid of all your redness like it promises. However do not use a lot of this foundation; just about a dime size. That's all you really need. This did not make me break out at all, and since this does have salicylic acid, it fights bacteria from clogging your pores and giving you pimples. I would most definitely recommend this to you if you have acne and really want a good coverage foundation.
I was very hesitant buying this product, since it was so expensive and I was afraid I would be disappointed. But I was looking for a good primer, and came across this while I was shopping. Now usually I do research on a product before I buy it, especially if it's expensive, just so I know exactly what I'm looking for. But, I really liked this primer. It makes my skin feel clean, and fresh and not too heavy. It does a really good job of priming the skin, giving a nice long-lasting effect to your makeup and just setting the skin. It looks very natural on my skin. I wouldn't say it's the perfect primer for pore and wrinkle reduction, but it does reduce the appearance of imperfections. It's very smooth and easy to put on. What I don't like about this product, is that it feels kinda greasy, and it takes a while for it to be properly blended in and dry before you put on your foundation. I think I would repurchase this product, because it's probably the best primer I've come across. But, we'll see if any other primers can compete with it and for a lower price.

I'm not usually a fan of neutral colours like this. I'm more into pinks and reds, but I decided to give it a try. This was actually a really nice bronze lipstick, and it did have a few pink undertones. It's very creamy and soft lipstick. Sometimes I use lip liner with this lipstick. I agree, this does have a rather different smell to it, didn't really like that too much. The other thing I wasn't really a fan of was the packaging; it's got this gold lining. But I find it uncomfortable for my fingers when I'm trying to apply the lipstick and hard to grip when you are trying to slide the cap off. I don't usually have complaints about packaging, as I'm not too picky. But on this particular lipstick, I did not like it. I think I would repurchase it though, because sometimes I don't feel like wearing a bold or bright lipstick, so this would be perfect but I do believe it's discontinued.

I'm a little bit obsessed with Clinique lipsticks. I just find them to stay on for a long time, they have a lot of great colors and their formulas to be very creamy and shiny. This color is kind of pink-red but I would say it's pink more than red. I think the color is gorgeous and it has a bit of shine to it which is very pretty. Thumbs up!
I was kind of disappointed in this product. I really like the color of this polish, but I was kind of disappointed in the quality. I had to do 3 coats to get the "cotton candy" pink, and for me, I found it took way too long to dry, I had to wait a long time for it to be dry. It's starting to a chip a bit after 2 days and does not leave any shine whatsoever, it's a completely solid pink. Thumbs down.
I was kinda shocked with this mascara; I thought it would really suck but I liked it! It does a good job separating my lashes, and lengthening them. It sometimes smudges and it's super wet and messy which is why I only gave it 4-stars. It was also really cheap! I bought it in an Avon catalog for like $2 on sale, so that was a plus. I probably would repurchase this but I wouldn't say it works absolute wonders.
I can't believe I haven't already reviewed this product!! I am absolutely obsessed with Vaseline. I use it for just so many things; all of my friends make fun of me for it. Ha! Every night, I put it on my lashes (because my lashes are pretty short, in my opinion) and I have seen an improvement. Their fuller and longer! I use them on my cuticles, lips, my elbows, knees, feet, hands; you name it. I love the cocoa butter cream formula one as well, because sometimes if I put this on my face, it feels kind of greasy later. But I love how it's unscented and smooth. I use it everyday and really can't live without it; it has been such a big help to me for a long time. In the winter, I get really dry hands so I always use this stuff and works wonders. Will be repurchasing for ....like forever. :)
I was kind of surprised reading some of the reviews on this product. I thought this was a good nail polish. It was the perfect yellow for me, because I decided to try something new and I enjoyed it somewhat. I personally don't like bright yellows, so that's why I purchased this darker yellow. Now this was my first time using China Glaze nail polishes. It stayed on for a fairly long time, and it looked pretty nice. I only recommend wearing this color in the summer though, it's too bright for other seasons. Overall, I thought it was pretty good. I don't think I will repurchase this, but maybe some other colors from China Glaze.
I fell in love with this nail polish. I had never tried Wet 'n' Wild's nail polishes before, and I was really impressed. I was not expecting it to be that good of a polish, because it was so cheap but I decided to give it a shot anyways. It is so pretty and shimmery! I found there was absolutely nothing wrong with this product. The color was fantastic, the packaging is great (love the brush!), it dries very fast, and it stays on for a long time. A week passed and there was barely any chips or anything! Definitely will be repurchasing and will be buying other nail polishes from Wet 'n' Wild!

This is like the perfect pink for me; not too light, and not too dark yet it is still is kinda vibrant. This stays on for kind of long time for me. Not much of a fan of the packaging of this though. The brush is too thick for me personally. Another thing, over about 2 months, I found the nail polish started getting clumpy and gooey which was a bit of a let-down.
I thought this was a pretty color, but it comes out a little darker on your nails than how it appears in the bottle. I find that happens with a lot of L.A. colors' nail polishes. But, It stays on for a fairly long time. It's kind of like a dark magenta to me, and I still do wear it. I think it's an okay nail polish overall, not good enough for me to repurchase but still, pretty good.
I agree, this nail polish in the bottle but when you actually put it on your nails, it looks more orange-y to me. I think it still looked okay, but it was kind of misleading. Also, it looked kind of shimmery inside the bottle, but did not look very shimmery on your nails. I actually found this nail polish to stay on for a fairly long time which was one of the advantages of this product. I would not want to repurchase because I'm not much of a fan of orange nail polishes.
I actually recently just bought this scent, because it's new at Bath and Body Works. And I have to say, I really like it. I think it's kind of different from other scents from Bath and Body Works because most of their fragrances are fruity and fresh, this one is more feminine and pretty. It's kind of sweet, and kind of floral; which is a nice mixture. I really liked trying this scent; it's just very well-balanced. Also, I agree, this one could appeal to anyone, any age and be worn by anyone, any age because it's not too...strong, it's just right. Possibly will be repurchasing.

I LOVE this nice, floral scent. I use it all the time, and never get tired of it. I usually don't buy the same scent again, because I like to try new ones, but this one was so good, I had to buy it again! It's very light, girly, and pretty, and really you can wear it anywhere - a party, work/school, out, anywhere. But the only problem I have with these body sprays, is that they don't last very long. If you're looking for something that will last you the whole day, go with a perfume and not a body spray. Body sprays are weaker, perfumes are more mature and stronger.
