Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Frosting in Buttercream
shackletee 6/27/2004 8:24:00 PM
I <3333333 the smell of this, my friend actually tried to eat it once he smelled the tube!!! Admittedly it stays on my lips for about 30 seconds (partially due to me licking it off) but that just gives me another excuse to apply and smell it again! Gives my lips a nice sheen too. The lip frostings are heavenly, I swear.
I am in love, love LOVE with this gloss-not only does it give great shine, nice sheer colour (clear with just a tint of brownish nude, which is gorgeous), yummy scent (reminds me of cinammon cake or something like that) and lasting power. I even enjoy the tingle it gives me,and the slight plumping makes my lips look shiny and full. You HAVE TO try them! They're worth every penny.
Lotions/ Creams -Scentual Pleasures - NEW Whipped Shea Butter Cream/Butter

I received this as an extra from a very nice swapper and fell in love with this. I don't know which scent I have (can't see it on the label) but this stuff smells so, so so yummy, like vanilla/coconut-and it absorbs so well too! The only minor problem I have is that I have to rub it in a fair amount of times because it's kind of thick. But this is definitely worth trying!
Having the super short and straight Asian lashes, mascaras always have deluded me into thinking I too could have lush curly lashes, only to find out later that it really isn't possible. This one is the most satisfactory so far though, it lengthens my lashes quite a bit and actually makes them visible. Pretty cheap, too!
I received mine in a swap, I guess these are discontinued because I've never seen them anywhere. But this is cute. The gloss pops up when I open the pot. The colour is "tea rose", a dark pink colour that looks pretty when toned down with balm for the day and dramatic at night. It stays on forever too, which is a plus.
Mascara -Physicians Formula - Lash in a Tube Cream Mascara

A friend of mine recommended this to me but it came out to be a disappointment. It did lengthen my lashes a bit, but my lashes volume-wise it did nothing. I'm kind of disappointed that I paid 3x more for this than my usual Rimmel Extra Super Lash mascara and this was pretty much worse. Will not buy again.
Finally! I have been looking forever for an eyeliner that would STAY on my eyes and this did it. I've been using MAC powerpoint for awhile as other reviewers said and it disappointed me a bit. For $6CAD this is a much better buy, stays put til I take it off.
I cannot rave enough about this. I've been using this for over 2 years and it always keeps my skin soft and moisturized-better than any other body lotions I've used. After having a shower when my skin is still damp I apply this and am good to go for 24 hours. I won't ever buy a body lotion again.
Love! I bought this because of a 'buy one, get one sample size'-Pink Cloud was my regular one and Pinched Pink is the sample size. Pink Cloud was ok (nothing spectacular) but this one is just outstanding! It shows up mauve-ish pink on my lips with pretty glitter and gives my lips that oomph. Tons of people complimented me on my lips when I wore it, and I love the smell too though I know a lot of people hate it. It is slightly gritty but not overly so, and I love how the glitter looks on my lips so it's ok.
Lip Gloss -Mary Kate and Ashley - Liquid Color Ultra Wet Lip Gloss in DAZED

Eh, I don't know. I am usually very fond of nude glosses but this one didn't "wow" me-it kinda washed me out, which is weird because that doesn't happen often with most glosses, but it looked like I smeared concealer on myself and I had to tone it down with balm. There wasn't much shine...and it had average staying power. A 'meh' at best.
Lip Gloss -Annabelle - Le Gloss Lip Lacquer in Liquid Honey
shackletee 5/27/2004 8:02:00 PM
Annabelle surprised me with this gloss. I think the tube/wand packaging is really cute and convenient since I can squeeze out all the gloss to get my money's worth. Liquid Honey is a peachy gold colour with shimmer, a nice nude colour that doesn't wash me out very much. It's not very sticky either and goes on very smooth with no weird scents. I took a lippie off because the wand is kind of hard and doesn't pick up a lot of gloss (I had to dip it in twice for one application), but overall it's nicely priced and nicely packaged.
Lip Treatments -MAC - Tinted Lip Conditioner- Virtuous Violet
shackletee 5/26/2004 7:17:00 PM
This is the 'it' product for summer. Makes my lips soft with SPF 15 with a nice pinkish-violet (more pink than it is violet, actually) tint on my lips for a nice carefree summer look. I love it, and love MAC for making this too!
Finally a decent clear gloss without the ridiculous price! I love my clear MAC lipglass, but I'm just never willing to pay that much dough for it (somehow I feel like I'm getting ripped off when I pay a lot for clear lipglosses...weird, I know) this gloss is shiny (or glassy, like their name), it's sticky but not overly, and has decent staying power. Yeah, not a huge fan of the smell but it doesn't bother me too much either. It looks great alone or with lipliner or on top of lipstick. Definitely will repurchase this in the future. EDIT: I just wore this on night out and it pretty much stayed on through the whole night! (I didn't think it'd be that great through drinks) So I have to give it full 5 lippies for great shine and staying power too.
One of my favourite lip glosses! The first colour I got was nudish pink colour (I forget the name) and it gave me a nice YLBB look. Now I bought it again in Stunning, which looks scary purple in the tube but actually goes on like a sheer, sheer plum, not overwhelming at all. Very good staying power, lots of shine, cute packaging with the brush too. I wasn't a huge fan of the smell (that's why it gets four) but this one's definitely a catch.
Lip Gloss -Naturistics - Squeezable Sweet Treats Lip Gloss
shackletee 3/29/2004 7:04:00 PM
I can't believe this product got such bad reviews! It's been my favourite thing when I first started using lip glosses, and recently I just found one at my local drugstore and I was so happy! I have this in "Peachy Keen" and I love it-smells really sweet, leaves a nice shiny gloss, and tastes good too. The applicator is a bit iffy but I can live beyond that.
