2010 version of Very Sexy Now- I smelled this in the store not intending to consider buying it. $50 for the perfume and $20 for the shimmer lotion is a lot but I HAD to have this. I own a ton of fragrances and this is very different. Very fruity but not like all the other of it's kind. There is something different in this that makes it unique. By far the best VSNow yet! My man loves the smell on me and I feel sexy wearing it. It goes on strong at first but fades quite a bit. I would def. repurchase, I just wish they sold it in a set with smaller sizes.
I own a TON of yankee tarts, I guess you could say I'm a collector. I picked up a Christmas Wreath tart at the clearance sale for $1. I think it smells kind of "skunky". I didn't even let it melt all the way in the tart warmer because it reaked. Putrid, I would not want my house to smell like this.
I purchased this in strawberry burst- a peachy berry color. I had been eyeing Mac's tendertones and thought this would be the same thing at a cheaper price.The packaging is super cute- dome shaped, looks like multi-faceted crystal. I spent about $1.99 on this. It had a nice sheer color which complimented my nc25 skintone but I just didn't like the thickness of this. This product is thicker than I'd like and has little shine. I don't know why they call it glassy gloss because it isn't very glossy. Needless to say, my 5 year old has inherited a new lip gloss. Would not repurchase. :(

I was very surprised at how much I liked this scent. I got the 6 for 30 deal so I thought it was pretty cheap for VS. Its a soft scent, smells very clean and romantic. You could easily wear this to work or out. It smells very pretty!
Let me start off by saying that I am a bronzer novice. I am usually very pale but since I started tanning I figured I should get a bronzer to enhance my tan. I researched the reviews and decided to try the cargo bronzer in medium. I am NC30 right now and this bronzer is perfect for my color. It's got a very minimal shimmer. I dust it where the sun would naturally hit my face. It gives you a nice post-vacation glow. The packaging is nice, it' very easy to open and if I ever did run out, I would definitely repurchase. I do think that if I weren't tan right now and was my usual NC20-25 that I would definitely need the Cargo LIGHT bronzer as the medium shade would be way too dark.
I have the electrolady liner which is a pretty purple color. I wasn't sure if I would like this because I'd tried other liquid liners and they were scary to use. Other liquid liners went on too harsh. Liquidlast goes on perfectly, you can build color intensity and the staying power is unbelievable. Plan on scrubbing to get this stuff off. They don't call this liquidLAST for nothing!
Best DS mascara IMO. I use this in the brown shade. It looks natural without the racoon eyes. It rarely flakes off- just when its drying out. I dont think its cheap in at my RI walmart- $8. But the best ds mascara I've tried.

I am on my 4th bottle of this. I've gotten tons of male compliments on this. I think the vanilla note in this appeals to men. Its a soft scent perfect for any season. I wear this a lot and never get tired of it. A very clean womanly scent. I will definitely buy more and more.
I was between love and like when I purchased this. I thought it might be a little too flowery for me but the first time I wore it I got a lot of WOW compliments on it. It smells expensive as chanel usually does. It's a beautiful sophisticated scent that will make the male gender remember you. I can't picture a teeny bopper wearing this. Definitely a womans scent. I am saving this for special nights. UPDATE: for some reason, 3 months after I've purchased this, I sprayed it on and it made me SICK. I had to change shirts because the smell was too 'chemically'. I'd say it really depends the person.
I was really surprised at the quality of this eyeshadow. This was my first UD purchase and I bought the urban ammo palette. The shadows go on smoothly and some have a pretty glitter to them. They blend nicely and wear all day. These come in a fantastic array of colors. I only wish they had more palettes available.

I bought the set at BBW semi annual sale for a couple bucks. The smell is not overwhelming and is very comforting. I think it almost smells like some type of dessert. The first time I wore it I used the lotion and splash and immediately got compliments at work about how nice it smelled. Some of my more expensive fragrances don't get compliments that quick. A nice pick-me-up scent.
I bought a few vials off of ebay to keep from shelling out $. It smells nice, great for summer. BUT I think it smells exactly like anna sui's secret wish. I don't think the scent lasts long at all. I put this up for swap because of its similarity to secret wish.
I have the lemon lime looking one. It has a super texture and feels very moisturizing. It has a slight sweetness but zero smell. It is really cute, thats what drew me to it. It's fun to put on as a novelty and is a pretty good product but I just wish it smelled fruity like I thought it would. Maybe the other flavors are better.

This has to be my absolute favorited hair care product EVER. I can skip a conditioner in the shower and this will make up for it. Its not greasy at all, it makes my hair super soft and shiny. I love the way my hair feels after I use it. I find myself using this all the time so it is running out quickly, I am going to stock up because this is one product I dont wanna be without. It is pricey but if you like this type of product, this is the best IMO. Totally worth it!

I just used this flat iron for the first time and I am so HAPPY with it. I have THICK hair and had a cheap flat iron before, it took FOREVER. This flat iron does the job so quickly. If you flat iron your hair, this is the best thing you can buy IMO. It gets super hot and is a fantastic buy. Worth every penny.
