Love this! Perfect color when I do my winged out black eyeliner, but subtle and goes with everything. Normally I don't wear color at all on my lips, so this is nice when I want to add some soft color. Like a pale peachy pink with gold glimmer. So nice. Worth the $23.
I love this. My HG liquid liner. The price was great. The color is great (Black).
There are so many things I love about this. I battled in my head for a few months before buying it because of the $5.99 price tag at Walgreens (What the hell, right?) But then I saw it for $3.97 and had to get it. First off the scent is a great exotic woodsy spicy oriental type deal which I love. The packaging is a bit corny but still pretty, and I love the purple bottle. The price was dirt cheap. And the thing that's best about it is the high content of natural oils (Shea nut oils instead of mineral oil or petrolatum like the Dove cream oil body wash.) That really impressed me. Lately I make sure I read ingredient lists because I hate to pay a lot for mineral oil or petroleum based oils. Natural is better. Highly recommend. I want to try the bar now, and will stock up because it will inevitably get discontinued just like everything I love :-( An HG body wash.
Styling Products -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Styling Mousse

I don't always think I love this stuff until I run out of it. If I want something to make my hair super thick and full of volume, I reach for this every time. I also like its holding power. I put a generous amount into my wet hair at the roots and comb it through, followed by dime size amount of smoothing serum on the ends, then I blow dry it. Then I either straighten, hotroll, or curl it, and the holding power is great, adds shine, and the scent lasts till your next shower. My HG mousse!

Great moisturizing product. I like the thick texture of the cream. Smells great, and the price isn't too bad. I use this with the matching shampoo. I would recommend it for people with dry hair. One of my HG hair products.
Shampoo -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Nourishing Shampoo

I have to agree with another reviewer on this one. Much as I love the product, I feel guilty because of all the chemicals. It does incredible things for my hair though, and the smell is fantastic. Have and will rebuy many a time over. An HG shampoo & conditioner. Packaging is attractive but nothing to write home about.
I like how the packaging looks like a subway token. The shade of pinkish lavender is great. But the glitter fallout is really just... Annoying. I'm over chunks of glitter on my cheeks. I've heard if you shut your eyes and give a mist of aerosol hairspray it can help, but until I find a way to combat the glitter, I'll save this for when I want that sparkly fairy midsummer night's dream look.
In love with the psychadelic packaging, not in love with the formula. It's alright. For $18.50 I expected it to be similar to Diorshow because of the brush but the formula doesn't have the viscosity necessary to make it incredible. I don't regret the purchase though, the packaging is inspiring to me! :-)
I'm big into girly florals lately and this was right on the mark. Way to go, another Lush product I love for $5 a pop! I like the purple and pink, and the nice jasmine & rose scent. Pink bathwater is fun too.
Love how the product comes in a rustic hunk. Love the coconut smell (I'm a coconut fanatic of all varieties). The price was a bit scary but I'm confident the $28 I spent on it will last a long time. I keep it in a tupperware in my shower. A quick swipe on top of my soaking hair lathers nicely and doesn't strip and leave it "squeaky clean." I would love to find a nice moisturizing Lush conditioner to go with it though. I want something coconut. Hmm.
Bought this just before Thanksgiving at TJ Maxx for about $15 I think. I bought it without smelling it because I had remembered sniffing it at Macy's once and liking it. It's the first floral I've ever bought, I'm more into ambery or orientals I guess but I love this when I want something flowery. Peony and rose and lily of the valley or something. Love it, and highly recommend this! Based on the other reviews I will try Noa original next. I'm a big fan of Cacharel all around so far! So many of their scents are amazing to me. Love the bottle and packaging, too. Pretty magenta and lavender and silver.
I first saw this eyeshadow on Home Shopping Network. It looked cool but there's a Sephora right by me so I wanted to check it out in person before I bought it (also why pay shipping?). The packaging is awesome. Purple velvet case frames a silver chainmail rectangle on the top. The inside has a cool mirror and four shades of eyeshadow: Oil slick, Stray dog, Midnight cowboy, and Flipside. (Matte black w/ silver glitter, medium metallic suede brown, creamy beige w/ silver glitter, and bright seafoam green, respectively.) For $28 a good deal, plus it came with a really high quality brush to apply it with instead of a lame sponge tip applicator. I'd buy it again, but I think it would take a long time to get through it, by the time I did I'm sure it would be discontinued. Anway, A+ for another great UD product.
Mascara -Revlon - 3D Extreme Mascara - Blackest Black

Mascara is my makeup obsession, therefore when I saw the TV and magazine ads, I was of course dreaming about this product. I got it for about $7.50. I love it. I'd say it's my HG for mascara. It requires practice to get the hang of the brush but once you do, you'll get the thickness of false lashes without all the adhesive hassle. I've bought the Blackest Black about 3 times since last summer.
I'm pretty sure VS no longer makes this, but I bought it in the Amber Romance scent last summer and I still have over half the tube left. I dilute it with lotion (as others have) to tone down the darkness/metallic effect. Smells great and doesn't come off til you shower (or really sweat A LOT)
Shampoo -Alberto Vo5 - Strawberries and Cream Smoothing Shampoo
swedishmilk 5/2/2007 10:43:00 PM
I have bought this product in the past, and like many others I mostly bought it for the AWESOME, deliriously wonderful candied strawberries-and-cream scent. I like the packaging, its decent for a drugstore brand. The shampoo itself is a lovely pink color that matches the awful pink bathtub in my apartment :) I haven't had a problem with buildup like others have mentioned, but I rotate shampoo... (I use my Pantene daily clarifying shampoo every other time I wash to avoid product/conditioner buildup.) Although I have heard bad things about sulfates, I love the scents and sudsiness of sulfate-containing shampoos. I also use the conditioner that goes with it, but my stylist warned me about using cheap conditioners because they have wax in them. But when you want your hair to smell amazing and get compliments from men, women, children, (and get your beau to run his or her fingers through your hair), then DEFINITELY try this product. Overall I only give it a 3 because it doesn't really do a whole lot to improve the condition of my hair. It just smells fantastic. Unless, of course, you don't like strawberries.
