i cant describe how much i despise this stuff. it smells horrible, the packaging is beyond idiotic, i almost always struggle to get the lid off, and it is simply overpriced vaseline. i bought this to use on my cuticles, it does nothing special. i will be throwing this away, never repurchasing and going back to lush's lemony flutter which is a far superior product.
i am completely and utterly addicted to this stuff. i cant imagine how many bottles i have gone thru since i discovered it. i have very thin hair that gets greasy the day after i wash it, it sucks, but this stuff saves me. the ONLY possible drawback is if you have dark hair you need to make sure to rub it into ur scalp well so that there is no white cast. i have platinum hair so this isnt an issue for me, it actually brightens my roots which is awesome. LOVEEE it and wish i could buy it in bulk.
SO PRETTY! I love this stuff. I initially only picked up Smooth Harmony to use as a bronzer and passed on this bc I thought it would be too sheer to use as a blush [which is what I took it to be]. I was right, however, it makes the prettiest all over face color ever! This could definitely work as a blush for a light-skinned gal who likes subtle cheeks, however, even though I am fair, I like my cheeks to be a bit pinkier and brighter. I definitely reccommend this as an AOFC though. I use it on top of bronzer to kind of tone down the bronzer making it look more natural and add a nice glow to my face. Love it!!
I may be a bit biased bc my lips are pretty pigmented, but I'm definitely not loving this! Like a typical glaze, it is verrry sheer and really, IMO, is more like a lip gloss or lipbalm. The color is pretty [especially the color of the lipstick itself] but it is just a bit to sheer for my taste. However, it looks a million time better with Sock Hop on top, seriously, a MILLION times better. Both of these products alone are not my favorite, but paired together they do look great. SO, if you get Lollipop Loving, I would definitely pick up Sock Hop, or a similar creamy coral gloss to pair on top. It makes the difference.
LOVE! Yes, this is a very intense color, and not your everyday, on-the-go lipstick, however, if you work with it, it's gorgeous! What I do is dab is on TOP of a lipgloss, as opposed to underneath. This tones down the color a bit and makes it much more wearable! It looks great on top of Starlet Kiss [also Heatherette] or Viva Glam VI SE [LE], or really any light pink lipgloss. This is the first amplified cream I have ever used and it is amazing!!! I think I may like it more than my beloved frosts.Overall, great lipstick, very unique, and c'mon, I'd pay $14 just for the AMAZING packaging!
SOO pretty! This stuff is REALLY scary in the tube! It is like neon pink with blue sparkes! Eeek! However, it is sooo gorgeous! To me, a bright pink lip like this is a more youthful version of the red lip. This isn't an everyday lipstick to me but is great when I am going to a fancy dinner!!
So sad this is LE! I am very light-complected and was scared that this would be too loud for me, but its perfect!!! It is the most gorgeous bubblegum pink that is noticeable but not obnoxious. Also looks great with Fun N' Sexy lipstick from the same collection [Fafi]. I should have bought more!
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - buxom lipgloss in Kanani

Prettiest PINK ever!! I have several buxoms and to me Kanani along with Trixie are my faves. This one has a bit more color payoff than the others but is still pretty sheer and natural. It makes the prettiest spring/summer pink lip and will definitly be my HG gloss for the warmer months!!
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lip Gloss in Trixie
vcanady 3/9/2008 11:38:00 PM
Oh so pretty! I looove this gloss! I have the buxom's in Amber, Bambi, Lola, Trixie, Kanani, and Bianca. Trixie and Kanani are my faves! I love the consistency of this gloss, and, like others have said, use this like a lip balm, I love it so much! I also love MAC Lipglasses, but to me the texture and color payoff of those is more like a liquid lipstick, whereas these are more like an actual gloss. They are very sheer, but make lips look glossy and gorgeous. The whole plumping thing is pretty much bull, but since I don't really need that effect, it doesn't affect my opinion of the product. I just wish they weren't so expensive! But, to me, they are worth it! The prettiest everyday pink ever!
Well, I agree with Paris on this one at least, it really is sooo pretty. It's like the perfect pink and frosty without being stripper. Love it.
At first, I wasn't too crazy about this gloss but after I took it out of my purse I started to miss it and realized how much I love it. It is truly the only gloss that appears nude on my highly pigmented lips. I also have Nars Striptease which is really similar with slightly more shimmer but doesn't tone down my lips enough. I much prefer Underage and it's much less $ than Nars. This stuff is perfect with bronze skin and a smokey eye. The only thing is that you cannot over do it and you HAVE to apply it in a mirror to make sure it's spread evenly.
UGH! So, when I bought Fatale from Sephora a couple months ago, the girl at the checkout said [after she rang me up I should add] "Have you tried Diorshow, it makes lashes SO much bigger than Fatale". So of course that just pushed me to try it and I asked for it for Xmas. I am truly underwhelmed. I have tiny, short, thin, blonde lashes and this stuff did nothing more than a typical drugstore brand does. The only real difference I noticed is that my lashes were a bit longer than with other mascaras, but as for thickening and volumizing...not good. And the brush is freakin HUGE! It's impossible to get all those baby lashes. I am going to stick my Loreal Telescopic.
I'm on the fence with this product...On my fair-light skin there is almost no color to it when applied. Ang the glitter...wow...no one's kidding when they say it is intense. And there IS major fallout. I hold a kleenex over my cheek when I apply it because otherwise my face is covered in it and it's kind of a pain to get off. Although glitter is such a pain to work with, I do think it looks great on eyelids and really makes eyes sparkle. I would love this more if the color would show up more and the glitter wasn't so crazy.
I really do like this eyeshadow...however it's odd because the color that appears on my eyelids is NOT the color that appears in the palette. I expected this to be a med-dark shimmery brown but on my eyelid it appears very silvery taupe, almost bluish. It's odd and maybe it's just my fair skin but I DO like the color that it appears as. Try this at sephora before you buy it just to make sure that it is the color you expect. Other than that, pretty color and lasts a long time!!
Scrubs -Clinique - 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse Off Formula
vcanady 12/16/2007 7:50:00 PM
Ew...This stuff is decent at exfoliating but it leaves behind an icky thin film on my face even after vigorously rinsing. I like the feel of the beads in this product because they aren't too abrasive, but I like my skin to feel clean when I am done washing my face, not oily. If you have super dry skin, then this stuff could actually be perfect for you. However, on my combination/oily skin, I think I'll stick to philosophy's microdelivery wash.
