I have heard people RAVE over this stuff. I ordered a few items from Sephora, and this was a sample option so I decided I would give it a whirl. Not only is it very greasy, it broke me out like I couldn't even believe! I have never had such a reaction to a skin product in my life. It didn't improve the appearance of my skin, or my foundation. It just made me feel greasy. I found this stuff to be disgusting, I'm glad I didn't purchase a full size bottle!
Liquid -Make Up For Ever - Mat Velvet PLUS Matifying Foundation

What a disappointment this foundation turned out to be! I had such high hopes for this. It is expensive ($34 for a small bottle) and while I don't mind paying a higher price for a good product, I expect a $34 foundation to deliver. It did not deliver at all. It is a very typical foundation, nothing special about it. I noticed no difference in my skin that tends to get shiny throughout the day. My skin still got shiny at the same time it always does. The coverage is decent, but I wasn't buying this for decent coverage, I wanted something that controlled shine like it claims to do. It also seems to make my pores appear larger, so it must just sit right on the skin without really blending in very well. Terrible foundation. I will continue to search for the perfect foundation but am extremely disappointed to find out that this one is not it! Don't waste good money on this, you can get something much cheaper to do the same thing this does - which is not much!
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Nutri Gloss for medium to long hair thats damaged

I really love this line from Loreal. I do not use the same shampoo and conditioner combo consecutively because I find that hair gets used to products that way, and they don't work as well. I use Nutri Gloss every three washes or so. My hair comes out shiny, soft, and super straight. I have very long, highlighted blonde hair that I blow out straight, and I am always in need of great moisture. I don't find this conditioner to be too runny as other reviewers have stated. I love the consistency, and my hair feels like silk after using it. I have repurchased this three times, and will continue to do so. Beats a lot of my salon products!
Shampoo -L'Oreal - Nutri Gloss for medium to long hair thats damaged

I have to admit, the pretty pink bottle was what caught my attention while I was browsing the shampoo aisle, and I am so glad it did! I have very long highlighted blonde hair that needs a great moisturizing shampoo. This stuff makes my hair glisten, and my highlights even more noticeable. I love it so much! I try not to use the same shampoo every time I wash my hair because I find my hair "gets used to them." I use this one every three shampoos or so, it works beautifully and is so inexpensive. I prefer this over many of my salon shampoos. A must have!
OK, so I have heard people raving about this aspirin mask for the past few months and decided to give it a shot. I have to say, I am impressed! My skin is clear, glowing, my pores look smaller, it's cut down on the oil on my face - it's amazing. And how can you beat the cost of this? I pick of a bottle of 200 aspirin at the Dollar Tree - mix it up with a dollop of my favorite masks that I already have at home or some pure aloe vera gel, and it's better than a spa facial. I notice the previous reviewer mentioned feeling sick from this. This is not a mask to be done every day. I know some do, but I would stick to once a week with this. Also, if you're sensitive to aspirin, I certainly wouldn't suggest this. I use 4-6 aspirin in mine and it is the perfect amount for great exfoliation. I really love this mask, I'll use this forever!
I didn't notice anything at all remarkable about this. It was the same as every other Secret deodorant on the market. It is way overpriced, and did nothing different for me, even though I admit I do not have a real problem with sweating but I thought I would try this anyway. There are plenty of other deodorants out there that are bigger, cheaper, and work better. I agree with the previous reviewer, Mitchum is much, much better than this stuff. I would say this is below average. If you really have a problem with sweating, my best friend uses Certain Dri every night and has fantastic results with it. Try that instead, pass this one up.
This is one of my all-time favorite scents. I absolutely adore it. It is very strong, so not much is needed at all. I buy the large bottle and it lasts me for a long time, even when I use it very often. This is one of those scents that really appeals to all ages. I have loved this since I smelled it on my grandma when I was twelve years old. I got my first bottle for Christmas in my teens, and I have been wearing it ever since and I am now in my twenties. I think it is very universal, although I do tend to wear this heavier scent more in the fall and winter than in the spring and summer. I will wear this forever!
This is my signature fragrance since people around me now always associate me with this sweet smelling scent. It's not for everyone, it is a very sweet and girly fragrance and not every woman likes that, but I adore it and wear it frequently in my fragrance rotation. It drives all the men in my office crazy! They're always complimenting me on it. It smells very cotton candy-ish, and like I said that is not for everyone. There is also vanilla mixed in - I think that's what drives the guys crazy. I am in my twenties and very feminine and girly and find this is sophisticated enough to wear at any age, although I know my mom said she feels it is too young for her. I don't see myself outgrowing this though! The bottle is beautiful as well. It looks so pretty sitting with the rest of my collection. The scent lasts all day long, never needs reapplying throughout the day. A must have for all girly girls! :-)
I took one look at this bottle at the Macy's counter, and absolutely had to smell it. As soon as I did I was hooked. I bought it right on the spot. I get tons of compliments from people when I wear this. The bottle is absolutely beautiful too. Very pretty to look at in my collection. This is very sweet but understated at the same time. I am a big Pink Sugar fan as well, which also attracts plenty of attention, but this is more wearable. Lighter fragrance, can be worn all the time for any occasion. This is a sweet sophisticated fragrance, I absolutey adore it. I bought the large 3.4 oz bottle a year ago and it lasts and lasts as you don't need more than a couple of sprays. I still have about 3/4 of the bottle left. A must have!
What a waste of money! This is one of the worst mascaras I have ever used. I normally like many BeneFit products so I was very optomistic about this one. The brush is too big. I don't know why it is so large, because it does nothing for your lashes but clump and smudge. Don't waste your money on this, a drugstore mascara works much better.
This is my favorite mascara of the moment. My lashes are long to begin with, but this makes them look so amazing that they look fake! I love this stuff. I get no clumps at all. I love the wand. A bargain and must have!
I used to love this and use it exclusively. The last time I bought it, it just wasn't the same. Dare I say it made me look dead? My skin looked colorless and tired with this. I agree with previous posters, they must have done something to this formula. I also have always hated the packaging on this. You can't get it out when it gets down to the bottom. I ended up throwing away a full jar of this since I disliked it so much the last time I bought it. Why did they mess with something that was originally a beautifully textured foundation? The difference is like night and day. I will never purchase again.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Goldie lipgloss in Baby
spiceandsugar 8/22/2007 12:36:00 PM
This is one of my all-time favorite lip glosses! I have a mini for my purse and a full size that I keep at home. I am a lip gloss addict and this is one of the prettiest I have ever owned. The perfect shimmery pink color! I am always searching for perfect pink shades and this one leaves many others in the dust. It's very inexpensive, lasts for hours and never feels sticky like most glosses, and it smells and tastes like buttercream. Could you ask for anything more? A must-have for all ladies searching for a gorgeous pink lip gloss!
I really love this powder. I sweep it on my face after foundation with a kabuki brush and my skin looks so glowy and fresh. I just love how it is a variety of shades combined. A fantastic buy! The only way I really see that they could improve on this would be to put it in a mirrored compact. Other that that, PERFECT!
I picked this up in the Dollar Tree while I was browsing around. I wasn't expecting much for a buck, especially since I think the E.L.F. powders are absolutely awful, but I was pleasantly surprised by this. I have a pretty dark tan right now, and I didn't want to spend a lot on a foundation I won't be wearing for too long. This is actually pretty good stuff! I found a dead on perfect match, and I apply it with the puff after my moisturizer. It makes my skin look pretty flawless actually! I know some say this is more of a powder than a foundation, but I am just looking for some light coverage and this is ideal. You have to make sure your skin is well moisturized before you put this on, that might be why some don't care for it. If your skin is dry, I would imagine it doesn't come out right. I have skin that tends to get oily during the day and this seems to help keep shine at bay. I have even gotten compliments on my skin since using this. However, I recently started an aspirin mask regimen and I see a huge improvement in my skin overall, so I'm not sure how much the foundation is really the reason for the compliments, but nevertheless I love how it looks on me! The only problem is I threw out the box, and it doesn't say anywhere on the packaging itself what the shade is! That's annoying, and they should at least use a number for easier purchase next time. When my tan fades I am going to try a little bit lighter shade and see if I still like it this much. Worth trying for a buck ladies! :-)
