I'm a total convert. I purchased the mask today and I just took it off 10 minutes ago and slapped on Mario Badescu's lotion on it (the SA said it "seals in the pitera") and I am GLOWING. It is un-freaking-believable. I'm going back tomorrow and getting the whole box.
This color is gorgeous. It is great for that "yes-I-am-naturally-glowing" look. It has pigments in it that catches the light when put on the lids and when combined with other highlighters you like you've just stepped out of a magazine. I love it.
I don't understand why people are saying olive skin and this don't match because I have olive skin and this works like a charm! (Maybe I have a different shade of olive? I don't know.) This product is so pretty. It highlights very well and actually makes you look alive after 3 hours sleep. It is high school exams week for me and I am always sleep deprived right now. This is my secret weapon (well, this, Shu Uemura concealer and Roaccutane lol.) because it adds that great glow to your complexion and makes you look radiant. Highly recommended, but you should try it out first incase.
OH.MY.GOD. I wasted my money on this CRAP?! I am so dumb. The first day you put it on, its fine- nice glow, but this as time goes by, other self tanners would gradually fade, but NOOO, not this one! it CRACKS. That left me with splotchy tan spots all over my legs- I looked like a badly panted cracking porcelain doll! HATE IT HATE IT HATE IT.
This concealer is my life saver. I did not have any problems at all using it- even in the beginning. A lot of celebrities use this concealer- Sarah Jessica Parker was holding this compact in a scene in her new movie "Failure to Launch". All in all, this product is my desert island necessity. I'm never going anywhere without it.

I bought this in the wrist roll-on kind of bottle and the scent lasts FOREVER, probably because this is an oil-based perfume, and not alcohol- based, which also adds to the luxury. My then-boyfriend (now...kind of a hook up) said it smells like sex. He prefers perfume like CSP VA on me or Cacharel's Amor Amor or something sexy and sensual like that. But i like this though. It's very feminine and makes you feel like a million dollars. I just wear it when he's not around! Lol.
Contrary to the popular one-lippie review the body shimmers from DB recieved here, I love mine. I have it in Taste (along with the perfume for 25 bucks. bargain!) and it gives the prettiest shimmer. It's golden and it smells divine. The smell wears off in about 10 minutes-not exaggerating, but the shimmer stays on all day for me, so that doesn't bother me at all. I can't taste any thing (lol I actually tried!) but that doesn't matter,it's great anyway. My HG of body shimmers.

This mascara is great for lengthening eyelashes, but it's not waterproof, so u have to be careful when wearing this. Other than that, it's an awesome product if u want mega long lashes and this lasts quite a while on me, so no complaints here!
Vaseline is the best thing out there. There's so many uses for it! I use it as night cream and its THE best. Great for healing scratches( I have one on my face from this stupid little incident, and I applied Vaseline on it yesterday. It's a million times better today!, great for chapped lips. IN LOVE with Vaseline!

Lemme tell ya... this is not a type of perfume I normally would pick out. This scent though, smells F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S. I'm not kidding! It's full-on floral and smells pretty sophisticated. It's a scent suitable for every occasion. Curious has been sitting on my dresser for like 6 months i guess, and I've never touched it. Until one day, I was organizing it, and decided to try it out.I dont regret doing that.
Miracle in a screw-up tube. There's just simply no complaints about it! Great packaging, even better product. Whenever i have that "washed-out" day(and when I do, I look like I'm masked in foundation. Not a good look!) I just dab this on and I have achieved that sun-kissed look. Two minutes tops! This is a product I'll never be without.
Ok first off, this review is comming from a teenager(I'm not gonna give u my exact age cuz i mean...c'mon, but im 13-15). I tried this in a department store and i LOVED it. it was around longer than i have.ALOT longer...my mom used it before i was born. It's a very classic scent, very fresh and floral. It's kinda sporty/girly to me. Usually I'm not a fan of citrus and florals as I normally use oriental fragrances, but this one, I might just go back and get.
*CHOKING* literally... CHOKING!! This scent SUFFOCATES me! I'm surprised Marilyn Monroe didn't DIE becuz of this when she went to bed with it on!
This perfume was originally my moms, but I asked her if i can have it becuz i love the scent SO MUCH!! (This is not to say it will be my substitute for Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Abricot anytime soon though)Smells soft and creamy, and very London-ish. It's great for going out some place sophisticated. I can definietely smell vanilla in this. I don't know if i will be re-purchasing this anytime soon becuz i can never finish my perfumes, even if it's 30ml! (psst.. and neither can my mom. i guess we both have a bad habit of getting bored of things (and people) easily)
Smells clean and fresh... reminds me of the beach and the movie "Holiday in the Sun" starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for some weird reason.. I have no idea why! Overall, a good pick-me-up scent, but I don't use it for everyday. I tend to lean more towards Amor Amor by Cacharel and Vanille Abricot by CSP.
