Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Brown Sugar and Fig Body Lotion
sh1na 10/14/2005 12:47:00 PM
damn B&BW for coming out w/ so much stuff i love this year! when i decided to buy the Brown Sugar & Fig EDT i figured i should pick up a lotion or cream as well to layer the scent for longer staying power. i decided on the body cream b/c i've never been super impressed w/ B&BW lotions (they're nice but not great). well i'm really loving the body cream. very rich and of course the scent is amazing in my opinion. the back of the tube describes this scent as an "enticingly warm fragrance combines ripe fig, creamy coconut milk, caramelized brown sugar and soft, velvety musk." great scent, esp. for fall! i ♥ fall!!! would def. buy again...$10 for 8 oz/226 g.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Brown Sugar and Fig EDT
sh1na 10/14/2005 12:42:00 PM
another really great scent for fall. very sweet and warm (smells like warm sugar)...sort of reminds me of a fig newton, but sweeter. LoL? i suck at describing stuff. =/ the body cream tube i have says "this enticingly warm fragrance combines ripe fig, creamy coconut milk, caramelized brown sugar and soft, velvety musk." i really love this scent. the staying power is good too, esp. if u wear the EDT w/ a lotion or cream. the EDT was $22 for 1.7 fl oz/50 ml. great buy!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci EDT in Apple Torta
sh1na 10/14/2005 12:24:00 PM
this is such the perfect fun scent for fall! i can't get enough of the Apple Torta line at B&BW. it smells just as wonderful as the souffle...like a crisp apple pie/pastry. it's delicious and very wearable in my opinion. staying power seems to be pretty great too. packaging is beautiful (the box it comes in), however the bottle itself is just plain boring. it's a clear bottle w/ a tiny silver sticker (TD combined and Tutti Dolci written around the circle) in the middle. very boring, but oh well. $24 for 50 mL/1.7 fl oz. i hope they never discontinue this line or i'll just cry! LoL btw...Tutti Dolci is coming out w/ Shimmer Powders ($19)...can't wait!!! =)
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci - Apple Torta
sh1na 10/14/2005 12:08:00 PM
OMG...i can't rave enough about the newest Tutti Dolci line @ B&BW (Apple Torta!). after buying the souffle i knew that i must buy this l/g and well,...*wow*. Apple Torta is so stunningly beautiful. It's a VERY vibrant red in the tube but on it's a beautiful sheer red w/ lovely shimmer. and of course it smells and tastes divine! really a must have in my opinion esp. if u don't own any red lippies...this l/g is fun and easy to use. packaging is nice...round tip applicator as opposed to slant, but oh well. $10 a piece btw. will buy again.
Eye Shadow -Flirt - Dreamy Eyes Eyeshadow in Glamourazzi
sh1na 10/13/2005 12:20:00 PM
Glamourazzi (#20) is similar to MAC Trax, but def. not the same. very pretty plum purple w/ golden shimmer, but it's also very sheer IMO. Trax is only a few dollars more, so i'd recommed Trax over this. nice shadow though since it's silky and easy to blend. $10 for one e/s (.07 oz/2g). Flirt has a lot of pretty e/s, so i'm sure i'll get more.
Blush -Flirt - Peek-A-Blush sheer powder cheek color in Crazy In Love
sh1na 10/13/2005 12:13:00 PM
great bright pink blush w/ shimmer. very pigmented and silky. just hate the packaging.
Blush -Flirt - Peek-a-Blush Sheer Powder Cheek Color in Caramel Belle
sh1na 10/13/2005 12:09:00 PM
this is actually called Caramell Belle (#14). a nice dusty rose w/ bronze sheen blush. makes my pale skin look a bit more tanned! as w/ other Flirt blushes, it's nicely pigmented and silky. too bad the packaging sucks for these blushes! don't get me wrong,...the packaging isn't ugly or n-e-thing. it just isn't practical and takes up too much room.
Blush -Flirt - Peek-a-Blush Sheer Powder Cheek Color in Heartthrob
sh1na 10/13/2005 12:03:00 PM
*wow* Flirt cosmetics is def. worth checking out @ ur local Kohls. the blushes r all very pretty and only $12 (for .28 oz/8g)!!! i picked up 3 blushes and an e/s there yesterday. Hearththrob (#03) is a knockoff of NARS Orgasm, so it's also very similar to Milani Luminous as well. it's a beautiful peachy/coral pink (darker pink than Luminous) w/ golden sheen...not shimmer. very pigmented and very silky. i was totally surprised. only gripe is that the packaging is sort of bulky and not very practical. would buy again though!
Lipstick -Clinique - Long last Lipstick - Bamboo Pink
sh1na 10/13/2005 11:53:00 AM
great neutral/nude pink l/s w/ shimmer. good lasting power and doesn't dry out lips...but doesn't moisturize either. would buy again, but as far as l/s formulas r concerned the Clinique Butter Shines r THE best!
Lipstick -Clinique - Colour Surge Butter Shine Lipstick - Berry Blush 415
sh1na 10/13/2005 11:02:00 AM
i am so impressed w/ Clinique Butter Shine l/s! so great for girls who love gloss and don't really like regular l/s formulas. as w/ all the Butter Shines Berry Blush is gorgeous and amazing. goes on smooth...very moisturizing and adds a bit of shine to ur lips. so far i have Berry Blush and Pink Toffee. Berry Blush is a bit more sheer than Pink Toffee but is such a beautiful pink/berry color w/ a little shimmer. great every day lip color and good staying power. would def. buy again!
these new l/s formulas from Clinique (Butter Shine) are amazing! i'm not really a l/s person, but i've been wanting to get into wearing l/s every now and then to look more polished. all of the Butter Shines are very light, moisturizing, and shiny. they go on sooo smoothly
Lips -Neutrogena - MoistureShine tinted lip balm in Clean #20
sh1na 10/6/2005 12:52:00 PM
overall a nice little find. great YLBB shade...very natural and sheer w/ a little shimmer and lots of moisture for ur lips. staying power is nice too. hate the packaging though! sooooo ugly, but it's nice that this stuff is easy to apply since it's in chapstick form. i'll def. be trying out more of these...Glow looks nice and has gotten some great reviews. just wish Neutrogena would change the packaging
so i'm trying to update/edit old reviews and i absolutely must re-review Trax. i had reviewed this a while ago under my other MUA name, asianeyes, and didn't give this e/s much of a chance then. this is what i wrote: this is a very unique e/s but i find the color a bit difficult to work w/. sometimes it looks good on me and other times it's kind of blech! trax is a plum w/ gold/copper flecks. i haven't tried using this wet yet but i doubt it'd work out well...i think i'm just too pale right now. =/ n-e-ways, this is a lovely shade so i will keep playing around w/ it to make it work for me. and here's my *****EDIT: Trax is probably my all time fav MAC e/s (if i were forced to pick one =P). i love, love, love this color to wear in my crease and also wear this over e/l from time to time. this is such a pretty unique color and it's sooo great for a smokey eye b/c it's very sexy. ♥
great color. don't know why i didn't pick this up sooner. it's a gorgeous olive green w/ a golden metallic sheen. great for a smokey eye look. cheap and great quality as w/ all Milani stuff. would repurchase.
very pretty shimmery light golden green. great to wear over MAC Chartru paint for more staying power. also, it goes on a little more sheer than other Milani e/s (such as Enchantment). n-e-ways, this is a great color for spring.
