My FAVORITE lip shimmer color! It looks absolutely lovely on me - a rosy, mauvish shade. I've also tried nutmeg, watermelon & raisin (each has its own separate review, all good :-). I love Burt's formulation and really enjoy the minty tingle.

I love this fragrance but wanted everyone to know that Mary Kay has this in the EXACT same scent in their Private Spa Collection, Embrace Happiness line. So for people who love Lancome's fragrance, you can get it much, much cheaper through Mary Kay! Lancome fragrance spray is $42.50 for 3.4 fl.oz. whereas Mary Kay sells its fragrance spray for $18 for 1.7 fl.oz. (so basically $36 for 3.4 fl.oz.). Check it out!

Whoa. I got this as an extra in a swap and the smell of this product is EXACTLY that of Lancome's Aroma Tonic Energizing fragrance. I mean EXACTLY!! but at a fraction of the price!! And as I love the Aroma Tonic fragrance, I love this as well. The lotion sinks in immediately... What a deal!
Fragrances -L'Occitane - Neroli EDP (L'Oranger line)

Only got a spray sample, thank goodness, as this smell is really strong, musky, and reminiscent of the '80s in a bad, bad way. Where is the smell of oranges? I smell no fruity-ness - only heavy, heavy musk. Will not be purchasing the full-size version.
Fragrances -L'Occitane - eau de miel (honey gentle water) [DISCONTINUED]

I spray this in my hair and body before I go to sleep or when I'm lounging around the house and just want to smell sweet. I love how comforting this smells. I think the smell of honey is quite accurate. I also don't think this is too sweet (as I hate overly sweet fragrances...). Will definitely repurchase. By the way, for those who complain that the scent does not last long, this is NOT supposed too!! This is made without alcohol and thus, was not made for a lasting scent. Part of the joy of this product is that I get to spray this over and over - yum.
I have been using this everyday for over a month and I can say that my hair grows out finer and slower. As a reviewer mentioned below, shaving is much easier. For $2.50, this is a great deal! I also really enjoy the smell of this - a little flowery and citrusy. It's not overpowering, just perfect. The aethetics of the bottle itself is not exactly desireable, but other than that, I only have raves for this product. Will definitely be repurchasing.
What a wonderful lip brush - and the $9 price tag makes me smile. I have had no problems with the cap being too loose, any funny smells, or the hairs falling off. I only have positive raves for this lip brush - cute and practical packaging, real sable hair, and did I mention the great price? I say to your inner consumer, "buy this!"
As the reviewer below noted, this is brownish/blackish red and does not make a good lip color for me. Therefore, even though the packaging is cute and the raspberry flavor is nice, I will not be repurchasing. I prefer the Strawberry color, which leaves the nicest reddish-tinted lips ever.
Yeah, so I bought this for the adorable packaging. Nice product and would definitely repurchase. I prefer the Strawberry color/flavor to the Raspberry. Strawberry tastes nice and leaves the nicest reddish-tinted lips ever. Perfect color on me. The raspberry, on the other hand, looks black-ish red on me - just too dark.
Lip Gloss -Sisley - Botanical Lip Gloss in Groseille 4

If you like NARS Boogie Nights lip gloss, you'll love this as well. The color is about the same - a berry, purple, mauvish, pinkish color. The color is very pigmented and shows 100% on lips. Just lovely. This comes in a tube form, no distinctive smell and is not sticky (yay!). It is also very moisturizing (unlike Nars). One draw back, this is very expensive at $36 for a 10 ml tube! However, if I can afford it or can swap for it, I will in a heartbeat!!
Got as a sample and just don't like. Yuck. Kinda too sweet and too powdery - just not for me. Wanted to wash it right off...
I tried Pure Grace, loved it. Gave Amazing Grace a try, love this too! A tad bit sweeter smelling than Pure Grace and the staying power is the same (i.e. not that long). Now I have to try Baby Grace :0)

Not as bad as the other CSP sample I received, Aloha Tiare, but still not good. This is way too sweet smelling. Should definitely try before you buy.
Got this as a sample and just don't like the smell. Too sunscreen-like and way too heady. One of those fragrances that will likely give me a headache... Definitely TRY before you buy.
