Performs like a cheap drugstore hairspray for me. Tried it several times, my hair flops/droops after about 2 hours. Actually, it would hold longer if I did not use this at all. It gave me a bit of volume and smelled nice but there was no hold. Although it was cheap so worth a try I guess.
haha, I was bored and a bit tipsy and threw 1/2 of one of these in the tub. My skin literally looked GOLD when I got out. I couldnt stop giggling. Not that I recommend doing this, but it made me realize how packed this thing is with shimmer. I always buy one when I place a LUSH order, love the scent. Next time I wont throw it in the tub though.
Lotions/ Creams -Gold Bond - Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion

Not only has this saved my hands, which have been very dry from the climate (desert southwest) and chapped from work (were reopening our library after renovation - unpacking boxes of books has destroyed my hands), this is also the first moisurizer I have used on my face that doesnt make me break out. And I have tried many high end brands. A bit pricey but if it doubles as a face moisturizer, I'll save money anyways. Great product!
I think before you buy this, try it on at the counter. Sculpting brow pencil made my brown looks wayyyy too made up. But, I have very dark brows compared to my hair. I have the precision pencil in soft brown. I don't have to worry about putting too much on, and have gotten quite a few compliments on my brows since I purchased this. I suppose it just depends on the individual, the saleslady uses sculpting and her brows looked fabulous.
Best lip plumper out there!!! Not much to say that hasnt been covered in the other reviews. LOVE this stuff~

Powder -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder

I like this. I've never tried mineral makeup before, but I figured with Walgreen's return policy, I would give it a try. I love the polished look it gives me. Even more I love the fact it doesnt transfer to things (my liquid foundation/powder combo would get everywhere!! so tired of cleaning my cell phone off, etc...) My only problem is finding a perfect color match. Buff beige was a tiny bit too light, so I tried Creamy Natural, which made me ashy and was too dark. I would try Med Translucent, but it looks way too pink for my medium olive skin. So I'm mixing the two and experimenting...3/4 buff and 1/4 creamy natural looks pretty good. Overall I'm very pleased with this product and will repurchase, just hope I can find a good color mix. Update: CRAP!!! I was too sudden with my review. This stuff gives me nasty cystic acne, the kind I havent seen on my face since I was 16. Only one lippie off though because it's a good product if it doesnt break you out =(
I like Nica, but not enough to buy a hundred dollar bottle. It is a very complex fragrance that definitely works with your chemistry. On me, it initially smells spicy, then dries down to a rather beautiful soapiness (like fresh laundry). The last past of the drydown is a mix of both, which is heavenly, but in the fading stages. I will definitely purchase more samples and highly recommend sampling it as well, this could end up being a knockout fragrance if it works great with your chemistry, and totally worth the price (to add, its potent...a dab will last all day)
Why look! Its the most expensive body mist I've ever bought! I love the scent, so much I would buy it again, but I spritz it over and over and its "subtle" ... "does not last" ... I'd give it a 5 because the fragrance is truly lovely...but staying power is so weak. I tried the body wash and its even weaker!so no layering...they need a lotion to compliment this BAD (sorry I can't do Par Amour layering...par amour=yuck) Update: ok, I'm eating my words here. I got a sample of Par Amour and layer this. A very tiny amount of Par Amour, and spritz a lot of Toujours over it. It smells divine and lasts much longer. The salesperson recommended this and it works! =)
Concealers -Max Factor - Erace in Medium and Natural
sunniva 2/25/2006 8:47:00 PM
I've been using this as an under-eye concealer for years. I've tried many concealers and I always come back to Erace. I use the color Natural, it works perfectly with my olive complexion. It blends easily and stays put all day. I've never used it for anything but under-eye circles though.
I have this in Berry Bitten. I love the scent, ease of application and the color (like another reviewer I smudge as I apply, and the result is very natural) Why not 5 lippies? Lasting power is not so great. 2 hours at most (more like 1) ... not what I'd expect from a stain. But the price is right so I'd repurchase. Just wish the "marker" were a bit more "permanent"
Although I said yes to buying this again, I will probably just get samples. Violette starts out violet/green for me, then I get the tobacco scent, then the dry down is pure honey. My husband loves this scent, he compares it to VdP but more "sultry"...hm =) I keep sniffing at my wrists expecting it to go sour on me, theres times when it just smells "ok", then a few minutes later it smells very nice. Definitely sample this because it is strange. I think I prefer VdP because I don't have to sniff my wrists at all, I KNOW it will smell fantastic no matter what. 3 lippies because I'm just not 100% about this one, but it is unique.
Ohh, yummy... I love the scent of Creamy Candy. I wish the bubbles would last longer, wonder if they would if I threw a whole bar in? But I also use this as a solid perfume, yea weird but I moisten my skin and use a tiny bit. And I smell heavenly for hours =) Also when I'm not using it for the bath/body I stick it in my lingerie drawer...So I don't really want to chuck the entire bar in my tub... UPDATE: out of curiousity I used the rest of the bar (3/4) because I have a spare. Sea O' Bubbles! I felt like I was surrounded by clouds! And they lasted a long time...& I feel super soft and smell great!
The scent is divine but my skin is sooo horribly itchy after I use LUSH soap. I had the same experience with Karma and Bohemian, I wish LUSH would make triple milled moisturizing soaps then I would be in Heaven.
LOVE this! I adore the smell of almonds, which is why I ordered this. Delicious scent, and the dove on top is very cute. Hmmm, this is a seasonal item right...maybe I'll get some more before they are gone!!
