This flat iron is awesome.. i use the second from the bottom heat setting and it is very hot and yet no burned ends, even using it very often! I absolutely love it,and have purchased for my daughter, and my neice, as well as recommended to several friends, all of whom have been very pleased! YAY! If it does every die or get lost, i'd buy another in a second!
Mascara -Maybelline - XXL volume+length microfiber mascara

I reallly like this mascara, I'm shocked by all the bad reviews! For me, it absolutely lenghthened without clumping, Thickened, but not freakishly so, and best of all, didnt flake at all on my face, even though I sometimes rub my eyes. Some mascaras actually hurt when they are on me, because of the weight of the fiber lengtheners, and the awkward angles the lashes can get glued into by some products, but as I said, I really like this one. Give it a try.
Hair Color -L'Oreal - Preference Mega Browns hair color

I use L'oreal Mega Browns in Chocolate. I think it is the most beautiful rich dark brown color you can buy. It actually leaves my hair shinier and healthier looking than it starts out before coloring. It fades a tiny bit the first week and then lasts and lasts for months. I love, love, love this color.
My dh used to wear this all the time and he smelled great in it. He got tired of it and now experiments with a few other fragrance. Considering all the "sporty" and "fresh" scents out there for guys, this at least had some warmth to it. I remember it just becoming part of his soft shirts. I would be curious to smell it on him again today. I see it marked down to practically nothing every now and then, maybe I'll pick some up!
Fragrances -Revlon - Jean Nate After Bath Splash original scent

awww the harsh reviews some people gave this stuff breaks my heart! ;-) It's a citrus-y body splash, refreshing on a hot summer night after a bath, or after a day of swimming in the ocean. The high alcohol content cools you at first and does contribute to that initial slap of "cheap" scent people talk about, but it basically evaporates leaving behind a very subtle freshness that I find it hard to believe could offend anyone. Your skin just smells clean and fresh without being perfumey. It's an after bath splash and that's about it. :-) I loved the other reviewers nostalgic humor, however!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Egyptian Musk perfume oil

Lasts forever in the bottle, lasts forever on my skin. More of a mood than a smell! Very subtle and yet impossible to miss. Very sensual. Prepare to have your neck nuzzled if you wear this! I agree that it is a man magnet, and I too like to layer this with other things for completely unique effect.
I finally found this online. Haven't seen it locally in Southern California for years. It is just as wonderful as I remember. Why would I pay 25 bucks for the benetint which burns the lips, screw top broke, can't carry it in the purse because of packaging... etc This is what I wanted in the first place and I am so glad I found it again! Perfect for my young teenage daughters.
Love Love Love this fragrance. Always have, always will. The only true violet I have ever worn. I can sniff my long empty bottle and be transported back in time. This would last all day, be completely different, non cloying and just all-around wonderful.
Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances - Jour de Fete (new)

My mom reminisced about a fragrance from her youth when she grew up by the Mediteranean. She told me it smelled of wedding candy (sugared almonds) and I looked and looked and found her this! Cost was prohibitive for me, so I purchased decants for us both. I LOVE it. But as the other reviewers have said, very subtle and doesn't last long enough. But, wedding candy does indeed have a subtle scent, so I can't picture this being any better if it were stronger. Longer lasting, yes, but not really stronger. As for my mom, she was touched, but it didn't quite capture the scent she remembers. We are both wearing and enjoying this, however...
Fragrances -Sarah Michaels - Milk & Honey body spray
trueboo 3/3/2004 3:04:00 AM
I actually like this as a very light mist, after shower type thing when perfume would be far too heavy. It has a huggable innocence to it and I even spray some on my daughters occasionally. However, WARNING... DO NOT wear this to any outdoor event where BEES might be a problem! I was accosted by bees for the duration of my daughters soccer game when I spritzed some of this on one morning!
I don't know what the deal is with this fragrance, but it does nothing for me. First and foremost, you have to enjoy your own aura when you wear a fragrance and I just wasn't feeling it at all. I will try again maybe I missed something the first few times????
Fragrances -Pilar & Lucy - the exact friction of stars

This smells like a (coconutty) pineapple upside down cake to me. Very YUMMM, but not always what I want to smell of. It is fun, but not practical. Could never be one of my signature scents or anything, but fun for a date night. Your partner will want you for dessert!
I loved this fragrance! I think it is perfect for hot summer evenings when you want to feel sexy without giving your lover a headache from an overwhelming scent in the heat!
I have to preface this by saying that I purchased this as a decant on ebay to try it, and I am quite aware that things are not always as represented. But... I found this to be an intoxicating fragrance! I really liked it because it was very different. It was not extremely powdery for me, but it was lasting and sensual. I would buy this again based on the sample I tried. Unique and very different from the other similarly named fragrance which apparently is more popular and pricey, but not as good as this one on me.
I bought a decant of this on ebay. I had great expectations for this fragrance, but it wasn't quite what I expected. It is very sweet, but not as rich as I had imagined. The first thing dh said when he smelled this on me was "mmmm, play doh!" I was shocked since he hadn't been exposed to any of the reviews regarding this scent that describe it the same way. So... final word from me... it is very nice, I do receive compliments, but the cost is not justified for me to purchase an entire bottle. I probably will never purchase again.
