Ugh! I hated this stuff. I bought this because my dad said that antipersperant has aluminum in it and blah blah blah. So I picked out the lemongrass one and it smells pretty good but unfortunately, it makes me smell so bad. It doesn't do anything to mask the odor of b.o. I smelled so bad with this stuff. Even if I took a shower and put it on right afterward, I would smell so bad within an hour. And I never ever smelled like b.o. before I used this deoderant. Maybe it messed around with my body chemistry or something but it is just terrible. I'm just gonna stick to using my certain dri. Please, whoever is reading this, don't buy it! lol
Lipstick -Maybelline - Moisture Extreme lipstick in Sweet Ginger
nickiricki 8/27/2009 6:26:00 PM
I don't know if anyone mentioned this before but I just realized that this color and MAC Viva Glam V lipstick are exactly the same! I put on the sweet ginger and almost suddenly realized, "I have a lipstick that looks really similar to this one." So, I swatched Sweet Ginger and Viva Glam V side by side and honestly, I really can't tell the difference. I even walked around my house to see the swatches under different lighting and they still look the same! Now, for the product review: The sweet ginger lipstick feels really nice on my lips and the color compliments my skin well. It also has a nice scent, people say it smells like watermelon. It has a nice shimmer which looks like it has some gold undertones in it. My mom originally bought this for herself and gave it to me because she wanted something darker.I probably would not repurchase because I don't use it too often and I don't see myself running out of this any time soon. I will however check out other colors from this collection because I like the formula of this lipstick
Lip Treatments -C.O. Bigelow - My Favorite Lip Balm
nickiricki 8/22/2009 10:13:00 PM
I love My Favorite Lip Balm! It smells so good! To me, it smells like vanilla cupcakes which I find very comforting. I like the fact that this doesn't look like regular lip balm when you put it on. It looks like a nice clear lipgloss when it is on your lips which is nice if you just want to go out and not have to worry about putting on lipstick or anything like that. I do have to reapply it every once and a while but I don't even mind doing so because it smells so good! The price isn't too bad either since C.O. Bigelow lip products are usually around $7 when I see them at Bath and Body Works. I got my My Favorite Lip Balm for $5.50. This is deffinitely my HG lip treatment for my lips. It leaves them so smooth and moisturized.
I went to a MAC pro store today and for some reason I have really been wanting to get a lipglass from MAC. People are always complaining that the lipglasses from MAC are really sticky so that kind of made me wonder if I should buy one or not. I have been wanting a nice light pink lipgloss and I try to stay away from the drugstore brand lipglosses because most of them give me a bad aftertaste. My mom gave me a little version of a MAC lipglass from one of the holiday 2008 sets and it doesn't give me a bad aftertaste and it isn't sticky at all. So at MAC, I saw the Underage lipglass and asked the MA to try it on me and I love it! It is very light but it shows up really well on my lips which are very pigmented. I was afraid that it would be too sheer for me but it is perfect! I'm so glad I got this one! And I didn't find it to be sticky at all. Maybe it depends on how much you put on? I have no idea. haha It also smells kinda nice and doesn't leave a bad taste in my mouth! I will deffinitely repurchase if I run out.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Pagan (Alexander McQueen Oct 07)

Ugh! I'm so unhappy with this color. it's very pretty and I wanted to like it. I got it at my cosmetic company store for $10 so it was a little cheaper than usual. When I swatched it at the store, a little color came off so it was no big deal but when I bought it and swatched it at home, no color showed up at all! I tried spraying fix + on it but that did not help at all. good thing it was limited edition...
I love this perfume!!!! It smells so pretty and it is the perfect summer scent (but I still wear it all year long). I also love the bottle that it comes in. The first time I ever smelt this was in a magazine and I thought it smelled great. So I went to a perfume store to try it out and when I did, I fell in love with this scent. I wanted to buy it but I didn't have any money at the time so I waited a bit. Then, one day at Marshall's, I saw this fragrance for only $24.99! I bought it there and I'm glad that I did because it is soooo worth it!
At first, I wasn't too crazy about this mascara. It was my own fault though because I was putting it on my lashes right after I used my lash exact so that my lashes would be long and volumous. Idk why, but those two mascaras together just didn't work for me. So, I applied a few coats of just the lash blast on my lashes and they came out looking really nice. This mascara doesn't clump and seperates the lashes really nicely. It curled my lashes a little in the process but I have stick straight, hard to curl lashes. If you use a good curler before and after you apply lash blast, it deffenitly helps and makes a difference
This stuff is awesome! It smells really nice and leaves my lippies nice and soft. Bath and Body Works always has sales so you could get a few of these at a time
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Guavagold
nickiricki 11/12/2008 9:50:00 PM
I bought this color because I love coral/ peach colors. when I saw this at sephora, I was like "I have to get this!" It lasts a long time when I wear it. One time, I wore it for 3 hours straight which is a record for me. hehe. the only thing I don't like about it, and the reason why I gave it 4 lippies is because it is extremely sticky. I don't know if it's just me or not but sometimes I have trouble parting my lips because they get stuck.
Lip Treatments -Neutrogena - Lip Nutrition- Soothing Mint
nickiricki 10/16/2008 4:43:00 PM
i have no idea what happened but it seems like they made a new fromula for this product. I bought one when it first came out and it smelled sooo good! it went on my lips smoothly with a hint of shimmer and it had a nice minty smell. When I ran out of it, I decided to buy another one and it is the complete opposite. it is waxy, barely a shimmer in it, and it smells terrible! it is even starting to change colors! I'm actually thinking of writing a letter to Neutrogena and telling them that their old formula is better. Not sure if it'll work but it's worth a try... *UPDATE*- I just called customer service and spoke with a very nice lady from Neutrogena. I told her about her about how I felt about this product and she took down my information and said that a refund will be sent to me! She also said that my input on this product will be sent to the I think it was marketing executives, something like that. lol.
this stuff is great! it goes on smoothly and no clumps too! the price is very affordable and it really volumizes my lashes.

I really love this stuff! It goes on my skin nicely and it keeps my skin soft all day. I reccomend this product to anyone who has dry skin.
