Description taken from S&L web site: Sweet Dreams - Love J & J Bedtime Bath? The relaxing scent of lavender, chamomile and soft musk.
To me, it smells like baby powder. Very comforting, very nice. Love the texture of this souffle too, absorbs into my skin easily, and no greasy afterfeel.
It's a perfect 10 from me for this gorgeous color. I'm a lightly tanned asian with pigmentated lips and I have been searching for the perfect neutral lip gloss for like forever. Every other nude gloss I've tried either make me look sick or ended up "streaky" on my pigmentated lips. Highbeam Tan is like what the other reviewers had said before- a nude shade with tint of pink. I absolutely adore this color!
WOW! I am so in love with this scent! I got the body lotion and body splash in a swap. And I am so loving this! I can't stop smelling myself! lol but true! This smells like a true apple, but not overpowdering. Smells sweet and tart, and none of those plastickly smell associated with some fruity scent. I am so glad this came is a huge bottle cos I'm sure I'll use this up pretty soon! :)
Lovely soft mint green color, with subtle shimmers. I love wearing this and Urban Decay's Mildew es on the lash line. And sometimes if I want abit more shimmers, I mix it with some MAC Frost pigment.
I love Smashbox brushes. I think they are abit underrated. I have this brush for about 4 years now, and vain me had been using it every day. And it is still in very good condition. No hair shredding, the hair is still so soft. One of the best cosmetics investment I have ever made! :)
Fragrances -Stella McCartney - Stella Sheer Eau De Toilette

I got a generous decant of this fab scent, and I love it! I love the smell of roses, but all the rose scents I could find just reminds me of old ladies' scent. Not this one. Like the name suggests, it smells Sheer. Like a sheer rose, if it makes sense. lol. Very soft rose scent, not offensive to the nose at all. I'll be buying the full-sized bottle soon! :)
I have both Angel and Angel Innocent, and I wear the latter alot more. Angel Innocent doesn't smell as cloying as Angel in the hot humid weather where I live (Singapore). It's expensive but this is one of the few perfumes that really last on me, and the smell is unique to my unsophsicated nose, so yeah I'll probably purchase it when I run out.
Lotions/ Creams -Thierry Mugler - Angel Innocent Delicate Body Milk

I smell so good now! lol. So glad I swapped for this. I love Angel Innocent (and Angel sometimes), and this body lotion hold the scent very well. It's abit runny, but gets absorbed pretty fast. Packaging is great too. But for the USD$35 price tag (6.6oz), I probably wouldn't buy it.
Lip Gloss -Urban Decay - Sparkler Pen - Firecracker

Urban Decay rarely disappoints me, and it's a hit again this time! I love love love Firecracker. Like what others have said, it's a sheer red shade with lots of golden shimmers. I'm lightly tanned Asian with rather pigmentated lips, and this shade really lights up my face even with minimal makeup. Now I'm lemming other shades too! ;-P
Fragrances -Suds and Light - Fresh Sugar Cane Roll On
momopeach 7/23/2004 5:01:00 AM
I ordered this scent in Roll On and Tarts. I burnt the tart last night and I love it. The tart smells like sugar cane juice, but not as sweet, and more lemony. But the Roll On does not smell the same to my nose. At first, it smells like the tart, but in an hr, it dried down to a strong flowery-powdery scent. It feels too cloying in the hot and muggy Singapore weather. But I can forsee myself wearing this scent say on a cold night.
They smell just like sugar cane juice but not as sweet, and more lemony. Not an offensive scent to most people I think. Edit: This stuff gets so much stronger after 1st burn. Too strong in fact to the point of irritating my nose.
I love all UD XXX Shine Glosses. They are my favorite in terms of texture. Not sticky like MAC lipglass, and I love the minty taste. Carney is my fav lip gloss to wear when I go for the smokey eyes look. There is enough pink tone in this nude shade to not wash me out. Definately buying this again when I run out of this tube.
Cleansers -Yves Saint Laurent - Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

It works well for me, but it seem to take off mascara very well. And for that price tag, there are much better and cheaper alternatives out there. But I do like the pump bottle though.
Eye Shadow -Aveda - Shadow Plus Vitamins in Verdigris

This is such a unique and awesome shade. The best way I can describe it is that it is shimmery olive green with some grey and black in it. Great pigment and long lasting too. But I have to say that the plastic sleeve it came in is crap. I ended up getting the compact case for the eye shadows.
Very unique scent. I think this is the type of fragrance either you really like it, or you hate it. Well I'm the former. I am usually not a rose scent fan, but something about this made me like it. This is one my favorite night scent. I don't reach for it often, but it is still one of my favorite perfume.
