i love this. i love the smell and what it does. my hair is straight, i put it on when my hair's wet, then blowdry, then use rollers or a curling iron and my curls don't fall out like they usually do throughout the day. i'll definitely be buying this over and over.
this is a good price but just a tiny bit too floral and purfume-ish for me, i like things that are more fresh and light. i also don't understand why it doesn't come with a lid of some kind ..
i've used this for 2 days, the application frustrates me a little because it's so soft and goes on so easily that it makes it tough to draw an even line on my upper lids. the bottom lids are no problem. since it goes on so easily, it also smudges easily too. the color is super black. the line is thick, since you can't sharpen it. i was really impressed with the easy application though, much better than any pencil, and a million times better than vicki's secret eye marker pencil. overall, i do really like this because every time i look in the mirror, i see my eyes and think, wow! pretty! i'm going to try the brown one.

this is like a beautiful perfume without the alcohol smell. it smells sweet and light, the bottle is cute.
Styling Products -Bumble & Bumble - does it all styling spray
rmeghann 10/22/2007 3:10:00 PM
i sprayed this once and the scent immediately said, "up for swap." so i don't know how well this works or what, i just know i don't want my head smelling like whatever this product is made of. ;o(
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara
rmeghann 10/22/2007 3:07:00 PM
this is a very nice quality mascara. lately i'm seeing clumps on the wand, but it goes on very smoothly and is very black. i am very happy to notice that my eyelashes are never ever stiff, like with drugstore brands, no matter how much you put on, your lashes still feel somewhat soft and flexible. the brush is so big and chunky that i always get it on my eyelids accidentally, it is difficult to control because of the size. it takes several cotton balls full of eye makeup remover to get it off at night. it's worth all the work, but could use improvment as far as application and removal go. for the price, it should come with its own special eye makeup remover. i don't think i would purchase this again. maybe if the wand were smaller ..
Lip Gloss -mark - Glow Baby Glow Luxe in Melon Luxe
rmeghann 10/18/2007 1:02:00 PM
you want this lip gloss! it is the shiniest gloss i have ever tried, and i have tried a few high end glosses (beats out MAC, bobbi brown, smashbox). it has tons of sparkles and goes on mostly sheer. the brush applies it perfectly, and a little goes a very long way. slight hint of mint scent.
Conditioner -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Nourishing Conditioner
rmeghann 4/25/2006 10:53:00 AM
I've been searching top-of-the-line conditioners for something that is pretty heavy and will pretty much saturate and nourish my sometimes dry hair. This stuff is great for that! Before you buy it, make sure you like the scent "Body by Victoria." I love the scent, but I am smelling it all day long in my hair and it seems a little strong ... like having a strong perfume all over my hair. I would also have preferred more of the product for such a high price. The packaging makes it really easy to use. I would definitely buy this again because it leaves my hair in great, soft and silky condition.
Self Tanners -Neutrogena - MicroMist Tanning (Medium 2 shades darker)
rmeghann 4/24/2006 12:25:00 PM
Well I actually love this, it's so much easier and quicker than lotions and creams and smells pretty good to me. I use the deep (3 shades darker) with a light hand, and the color develops within 2 or so hours. It looked natural on me. I also sprayed some in my hand and gently put a little on my face, and it looks beautiful. There are a lot of bad reviews on this, but almost any self-tanner will get bad reviews because everybody has different skin tones and application methods. I do pretty well with self tanners, and this one is one of the best for me. Be sure to hold the can far from your skin or it will probably not go on evenly.
Conditioner -TiGi - Bed Head Dumb Blonde Reconstructor
rmeghann 4/20/2006 10:45:00 AM
I was excited to buy this because it had a pump dispenser ... I just got my hair highlighted last week and it has a tendency to be really dry lately. My hairdresser told me to use lots of deep conditioners and masques. This seemed liked anything but a conditioner, it dried my hair out like crazy. I will give it another shot, but I'll probably use it with a conditioner next time. Bed Head's Moisture Maniac is great, much better than this. Nounou olive masque is also really great.
This stuff feels feather soft ... I usually stay away from shine serums because they weigh my hair down and make it feel greasy, but this is very light and soft feeling. I'm in the process of getting my hair lightened (I have to go back to the hair dresser in 2 weeks to finish some highlights that were started), but it works well on my light brownish hair right now. It doesn't make the color change or anything, it just makes hair feel healthier to touch. It was a little pricey, but I'd get it again.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge For Lips And Cheeks-all colors
rmeghann 2/21/2006 4:22:00 PM
I have this in Blushed Rose and Pale Pink. Both blend in great on my cheeks, the finish appears as a soft natural look, there's no grease or shine at all! I use the Blushed Rose on my lips and cover it with a gloss and lipliner, it stays on all day and looks really good, matching my cheeks. I do wish this were packaged differently though, unscrewing and rescrewing the lid several times each morning slows down my make-up routine.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Lipgloss in Strawberry Fizz
rmeghann 2/21/2006 10:17:00 AM
I have about a million different lip glosses, but this is the best BY FAR. I got 4 different flavors (I was just going to get 2, but I couldn't resist)... Piece of Cake, Sugar High, Minty Lip Shine and Juiced Berry. They are mostly clear, but the Juiced Berry adds a tiny bit of color. They all have flavor and an incredible shine. My favorite is the Minty Lip Shine because it feels really cool on my lips. The sale they have going on is great right now, it's less $$ than you'd pay for most drugstore brand glosses - 2 for $10.00. Do not hesitate to get some of these, you'll love them!
Liquid -Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 [DISCONTINUED]
rmeghann 1/13/2006 5:27:00 PM
I have this foundation in Warm Sand and Beige ... I'm thinking of exchanging the warm sand for a shade slightly darker than beige since the two colors are almost exactly alike, and I will need a summer shade in a couple months. Anyway, I prefer this foundation over Sheshiedo's The Makeup because it's much thinner and easier to apply. I have immediately noticed its scent on my face, it smells exactly like sunscreen ... which isn't so bad because it reminds me of summertime. And this is good for people who want their skin protected from the sun, because you can be sure there's plenty of SPF from this scent.
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink
rmeghann 1/13/2006 5:15:00 PM
I wouldn't call this a gel at all ... it's more like a cream. The color is beautiful and surprisingly easy to apply. It seems like it would smudge really easily, but when it dries after 30 seconds, it stays put all day. Since I've always used eyeliner pencils, I thought this would be a big mess, and I'd have to reapply several times to get a straight line, but that's not the case at all. I definitely recommend it!
