I am a huge fan of Pacifica's soy candles- especially the Tahitian Gardenia line. I was so excited to use the perfume, but when i did, I was so disappointed. It smells NOTHING like the candle, at all. It reminds me of cheap old lady perfume. I never use it; a full tube of the roll on sits in the back of my bathroom cabinet and will remain there until I throw it away.
BEST blush I've ever used. The colour is awesome, I can imagine it would compliment dozens of skin tones. I'm not sure why it's fragranced, but it's a nice touch. Packaging is unpractical but looks cute sitting on my bathroom counter :) I love the bit of sparkle it has; I have found that this blush works best for me underneath a thin layer of highlighter across my cheeks. Very expensive, but you do indeed get what you pay for. Thumbs up!
I have been using Cover Girl's LashBlast mascara for a couple of years now, and I find that fusion is my favorite. I have big eyes, and for daily wear, all I rely on is foundation, blush, mascara and gloss- but after beginning to use this, the mascara totally steals the show. It makes my eyes look so great, and I get compliments on my lashes fairly often (which is really great, seeing as my naked lashes are pretty thin and not that long) I like to go with a brown shade to keep a more natural, less makeup-y look. I use a couple coats for normal activity but when I want to really play up my eyes, several coats totally does it-without looking cakey and gross. It's a fantastic product that any eye-makeup junkie on a budget will love.

Absolutely great product, my skin is so soft and stays that way all day after use. Actually, my boyfriend uses it too! (I ran out of moisturizer one day so I used his, but turns out, I loved it!) I've been using it for a little over a month now, and I have found that if I mix a drop or two of extra virgin olive oil in with the MK creme in my hand before applying it to my face, my skin looks and feels amazing. It would be too much for someone with oily skin, but it has worked wonders for me. Love it! Definitely recommend.

I love LOVE this brand. All of their products that i have tried so far have been amazing. The Olive Glossing shampoo and conditioner are my favorites. They smell so so good, and my hair has never been softer. And the "glossing" part is right, it leaves my hair looking so healthy and strong and shiny. I would definitely reccomend.

I bought this product when I needed a quick fix of moisture, and I selected it only for the price- but it turned out to be one of my favorite products. It provides excellent moisture, smells great, and the results last all day. I like to reapply throughout the day, although there's not much need because it works so well. The packaging is misleading. It looks cheap and it is cheap, but I have found it to be one of my favorite must-haves. Highly reccomend.
