Okay, so, I finally bought this perfume by my beloved Aquolina. I can wear only Pink Sugar as I cannot stand any other perfume. Florals and weak wearing fragrances aren't tolerated by me. With that said, I personally do not like Sensual. It smells like all the perfumes in the world that I avoid like the plague b/c of their thick, nausea and headache inducing properties. When people say this is a grown up version of Pink Sugar, they are half correct. It's definitely a grown up scent or rather a scent for those into the thick sweet floral-ish scents. It's not a version of Pink Sugar, though. If it was, I'd be all over it. I cannot give this fragrance a poor rating based on my personal preference. I have to say that if I were into this type of fragrance, I'd praise this one. It has great staying power and doesn't stray far from the body. But those of you that love Pink Sugar, don't get your hopes up as you will be gravely disappointed.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm - Pink Blossom

Color of lip balm when applied is exactly as depicted on the tube. This is a baby doll pink. No shimmer whatsoever. When first applied it has a very light bubble-gum/candy scent. Very moisturizing. I love tinted balms. So convenient to keep in my pocket. :-)
This smells like B&BW's Brown Sugar Vanilla MINUS the burnt sugar smell. Upon first sniff of this I was irritated b/c I thought this was going to smell like BSV. But then I paid attention. This is a soft creamy sugary coconut. It doesn't scream out like B&BW's Vanilla Bean Noel & BSV. I'm guessing it's b/c of the lack of the burnt sugar note. This is definitely an easy to wear fragrance. Good for day & night. Not offensive at all. Very mellow and delicately soft and sweetish. Of course this was a limited edition from VS. Nab this if you can from EBAY or MUA.
Very respectable ingredients. Very unoffensive fragrance. As the bottle states, it's hypoallergenic so it is kind to your skin. This wash does not dry out my skin nor does it add anything to it. It's a very neutral wash. I feel clean with no gross residue like what Bath & Body Works body washes leave on my skin. This is my go to body wash...I'm on probably my twentieth bottle or so. Very affordable to boot. I recommend this to everyone.
Lipstick -Palladio - Herbal Tinted Lip Balm Golden Pink

Gorgeous golden pink! Literally is light/medium pink with gold shimmer! LOVE. Anyone who is a fan of the pink with gold shimmer lip products will love this balm. Coverage is medium/full. I LOVE the fact that it's a regular chapstick size tube. Easy to keep in my pocket all the time. It's not drying and it's not super moisturizing. It's perfect. Absolutely a main stay for me! This one and Cotton Candy! :)
Perfect highlighting color. Perfect for dabbing in the corner of your eyes by your nose to brighten your eyes in the most natural way. This is a perfectly neutral antique white with light shimmer color. It will work with pretty much every color. The pot is huge. Not the size of MAC's regular eyeshadows. I love it. :)
This grey color is a softer grey than that of Industry. I'd call this a daytime grey. If you want a nighttime grey, use Industry. You can build the intensity of this color. It can go from a soft light/medium grey to a deep medium grey if you layer some. Application is smooth and even. I love it! :)

If you've always wanted to wear red lipstick but find it too high maintenance; if you have always wanted to wear red lipgloss but find it's a messy feat....try this! I'm so in love! Sheer/medium red color. Such a lovely texture. So freaking convenient in a chapstick type tube (same size and all). I bought this herbal lip tint in six different colors b/c I love it so freaking much! :-D
Fragrance -Unlisted Brand - Geoffrey Beene - Grey Flannel

My husband requested I get this for him several Christmas's ago. I did and OMG did I regret it! It literally smells like sharp cat pee. It's DISGUSTING.
I bought this fragrance for my husband based on the ratings (at the time) on makeup alley. It is a scent that does not know where it belongs...on a man or a woman. It doesn't belong. It is a pleasant fragrance in the bottle but the idea of it being on a man or a woman is wrong. I do not recommend this fragrance for anyone unless you like confused fragrances.
For all of us fragrance enthusiasts, B&BW is a fantabulous company! It's great to have their newest inventions to try! Keeps life interesting! :-) With all the sales they have, their prices are modest. Won't break the bank. And everyone needs several fragrances to choose from! So, a buy 3 get 3 free sale rocks!
Eyeliner -Revlon - Grow Luscious Lash Liner - 001 Onyx

After about a week of using this eyeliner, my left top eyelash line has swollen up & is red and itchy! Now, the bottom eyelash line is getting itchy! I didn't realize it could be this eyeliner until I figured out that this is the ONLY thing I've done different. I've never had this issue before, period. UGH!!!!!!!
Sephora described this color as peachy pink. It is not. The color is actually a light barbie pink. I cannot wear this color. Otherise, I love this product. I will buy other colors.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Extra Volume Collagen Mascara (waterproof)
sparklesprinkler 10/11/2010 12:08:00 AM
While this mascara isn't the best in existence, it is a good handy mascara. When I first pulled the applicator out, I looked at the brush that was covered in what looked like gooey mascara. I put it back in and put off trying this mascara for a few days after that. I finally tried it for two days in a row. It actually does NOT go on goopy like it appeared it would. In fact, the mascara consistency is NOT goopy nor is it watery. It actually glides over the lashes very smoothly and provides you with volume and length. The waterproof version did begin to flake after about 10 hours.
It does what it is created to do. My problem with this waterproof formula is that it makes my lashes brittle and they fall out more often than natural shedding. You will indeed have to do a few dips with the brush so that you will get enough mascara on your lashes. I absolutely HATE these stupid rubber "brushes". They SUCK. Fiber brushes are the way to go. You cannot get the results from fake rubber "brushes" the way you can from the fiber ones.
