Lotions/ Creams -Freeman - Body Butter-Sunflower & Vanilla Sugar

This is a really great body butter, one of the best i've tried. I'm usually not a big fan of vanilla-scented products, but the scent of this is wonderful! I agree with other reviewers that say it takes a while to sink in, but it does an excellent job of moisturizing. For under $5, it can't be beat.
The absolute greatest floral fragrance I have ever tried. It has a sweet, lovely scent, is not too overpowering, and has good staying power. Highly recommended!
Conditioner -John Frieda - Brilliant Brunette Light Reflecting Conditioner

An absolutely wonderful conditioner...very moisturizing for my thick, dry hair. It leaves it so shiny and silky, plus the scent is so yummy! Highly recommended!
Shampoo -John Frieda - Brilliant Brunette Shine Release Moisturizing Shampoo
shadiasamir 3/19/2005 4:07:00 PM
This is by far the greatest shampoo I have ever tried. I have long, thick, dry hair, but this shampoo does a wonderful job of making it smooth and shiny. When used along with the Light Reflecting Conditioner, my hair is absolutely gorgeous. The price isn't too bad either. I don't think this really does anything to bring out highlights in my hair, but a wonderful product nonetheless.
This fragrance reminds me so much of Burberry Brit, except this is so much stronger and more sickening! Its a very very sweet, headache-inducing scent. I don't really care for the smell of vanilla, so maybe thats why im not a big fan of this. Good staying power tho
I have had this fragrance for several yrs, and at first I absolutely loved it. The last few times I have used it, it has smelled like dirt and grass on me. Its a kinda bad smell and its very strong. It still smells good in the bottle tho. I guess I have mixed feelings about it.
Moisturizers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer spf15

Im pretty happy with this moisturizer...i have slightly oily skin, and this does a good job of keeping the oil at bay. i dont think the little light diffusers do anything to make my skin more "radiant." it does an okay job of moisturizing, but some days, especially in winter, i need something heavier.
Misc Beauty Tools -Sephora - Heated eyelash curler

I have mixed feelings about this curler. It definitly does a better job of curling my very straight, very thick lashes than non-heated curlers, but the curl doesnt last unless i layer on a lot of waterproof mascara. my biggest gripe about it is the fact that the batteries i put in only last about a week before they have to be replaced. the curler is a little fragile too it seems...mine is covered in tape to hold it together. not a bad product for curling, but it needs a lot of improvement.
I absolutely love the way this color complements my olive skin. It looks like a dark color in the tube, but actually adds just the right amount of pigment to my lips without making them looking too overdone. It also has a really lovely smell...I havent been able to find anymore of this color tho...i pray it hasnt been dc.
Lip Gloss -Lancome - Juicy Tubes Pop ~ Raspberry Ice
shadiasamir 2/6/2005 2:24:00 PM
This has to be one of my favourite glosses. It goes on nice and smooth, and does not require me to use a mirror to apply it. its a pretty, sparkly pink color that smells so good, and feels tingly on your lips. the tube is also pretty big and lasts quite a while...i think its worth the price.
I have tried many, many different facial masks over the past several yrs, and i have to say that this one is one of the best. it does not dry out my skin @ all, i see very few or no blemishes when i use it regularly, it makes my skin less oily, and it is sooo cheap. it also smells great too :)
This set of three lip glosses is really nice. The Peppermint Patty and Holiday Red are really pretty colors on my lips...very sheer, which i love. The Sugar Cookie one smells good, but there is really no way for me to wear it by itself...its shimmery whitish glop and it looks awful by itself. i sometimes mix a tiny bit of it with the Holiday Red, and it looks pretty good. all in all, its not a bad purchase.
I got a huge bottle of this fragrance off ebay for really cheap. I really like this fragrance, but it is a little headache-inducing. I love the smell of the raspberry liquor tho. I would not recommend paying full price for this...$78 for 1.7oz is a little outrageous.
Conditioner -Rusk - Sensories Calm 60 second Conditioner

The only thing i liked about this conditioner was the scent. I have thick, long hair, and it took A LOT of this conditioner to do what my fav herbal essences stuff does. My hair was tangly and dry after using this and looked frizzy. From now on, i will just stick to what i know works
this color looked really great in the pan, so i picked it up since it was so cheap. i have dark eyes and olive skin, and this shadow made my eyes look really heavy and overdone even though i wasnt wearing any other eye makeup. this shadow has pretty good staying power tho
