This scent is uber-girly. It's very sweet. It reminds me of an escada fragrance. I'm terrible at describing notes, but it suffices to say that if Escada and Aquolina teamed together to make their quintessential home fragrance, this would be it.
I got this on sale for $1. It's a nice blend of berry and a bit of pie crust. Very homey, comforting smell. There's nothing tremendously unique or striking about it, but it smells exactly how you would expect it to. The tart has excellent throw. The only reason I said I wouldn't buy it again is because I'd probably want to try other foody/fallish scents before going back to this again. If you want a very standard warm, comforting foody/fruity smell, I'd recommend this.
Got this for $1. Love it - very light, fresh, etherial, bright, dreamy.
This is a super pungent, very bright and cheerful blend of ripe pineapple and sweet mango. Just go out and try it, you won't be sorry!
My HG. There is nothing new I can add to the raves here. I especially like how a little goes a long way, it is so gentle, and thorough. My skin really feels comforted after using it. I will repurchase again and again and again.
Polishes -Unlisted Brand - Lomasi - Mani/Pedi Gel Manicure System

This is the fourth time I've used it, and I continue to be very impressed by the quality of the products and the outcome each time. Each manicure/pedicure has stayed looking perfect for 2+ weeks, and the only reason I change color is because my nails get too long. No chipping or scuffing at all. I own three colors now. Sincerity, the taupe that came with the set, Pleasant, a neutral grey-purple that is perfect for work, and Laughter, a glimmery fuchsia which is super fun. I bought it at Peninsula Beauty for about ~80 (with their 10% off online discount it came out to be less, + free shipping), and it comes with the five polishes (tip bonder, base coat, color, top coat, rose cuticle oil), file, buffer, orangewood stick, acetone remover, cleanser, DVD instructions, instruction booklet, removal kit and of course, the UV light. I just cannot say how pleased I am with this system and I will continue to use it and get more colors for years to come! (not affiliated)

The best!! Don't settle for anything else to provide a well-blended, airbrushed look. Easy to build pigmented blushes with this one. Love it. HG!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this brush. I only have 5 brushes in my modest collection, and after polling MUAers and reading reviews, I decided to purchase this one. It is a dream. The goat hairs are firm enough to pick up a large amount of shadow, and it is so soft against my eyelid. Shadows glide on like a dream. Darker colors I can build upon carefully, using this brush. I am so happy with this brush (This is coming from a girl that originally thought I only needed one eyeshadow brush).... buy this brush!! Probably the best makeup-related purchase I've made this year.
Just started using this product, but so far it's worked wonderfully. Got *all* the flakies off an incredibly dry and ashy face! And I didn't even use moisturizer afterward and my skin's been smooth and flake-free the whole day! So far I love this stuff :) EDIT: I've had days where I use this and it just seems to accentuate my dry patches. I try to scrub thoroughly, but ultimately the flakies are still there. Disappointed...

Whenever I get a whiff of this, I fall into a dream-like state. Very sweet but a wonderful cologne for a confident man - think sexy boyfriend type. Love this!! Got it for my b/f (ex b/f) for his birthday, the scent is uncommon enough that when when I walk by someone wearing it I instantly think of him!!

Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Long-lasting and deliciously scented.

Excellent shampoo. Consistently leaves my hair squeaky clean, and my scalp is much healthier now. I was originally thrown off by the lack of lather, but I'm used to it now and I appreciate the scent more these days. I've had it for about 2 months. It's changed the way I think about shampoos.
Aahhh... I have searched soo long for the perfect baby pink. I love this stuff! Its consistency is different from other glosses, not sticky at all, and I am loving the unique scent. I was afraid that it would be too pasty on my light olive skin, but it actually looks like the perfect light "flirty" pink, as another reviewer said. I was shocked by how small the product actually was, but I don't care.. I think I am going to stock up now because I can't believe I can finally wear light pink well! :-D p.s. I've tried MAC oyster girl, pink lemonade, florabundance, VGV, Too Faced Slander, soo many more...
Currently my favorite mascara, but I still haven't found my HG. I love the big, luxurious brush, and it does a much better job than YSL Faux Cils at making my lashes look dramatic. It does flake, but for me that's bearable. Will repurchase because it's the most thickening mascara I've ever come across.

The three mascaras I keep in my arsenal are this, DiorShow, and Lancome Definicils. I must say that this does make my lashes stand out the most out of the three, but not in a good way. It makes my lashes look longer, but spidery. My lashes feel like twigs, very plasticky and hard. All in all, I'm not satisfied with this product, and to get the look that I'm satisfied with when I go out, I have to use this with DiorShow. I've decided that I still prefer DiorShow the most, because it thickens, although I still haven't found my HG (and I haven't tried this with a lash comb so that may give me more options).
