Lip Treatments -DuWop - Pure Venom Plumping Lip Stain - Pure Berry

LOVE the natural color
This is everything you always wanted cherry chapstick to be when you were a little girl- but alas, it never was. Nivea's kiss of flavor cherry is moisturizing, light (a little waxy - but come on, its a stick balm), and leaves a sweet 'i just ate a cherry popsicle' stain. the color is flattering and pretty and natural -not MLBB natural
Lip Treatments -Sally Hansen - Volumizing Lip Shield With SPF 15 - Just Swell
wendi6716 4/27/2008 3:04:00 PM
a nice lip balm with SPF 15. the packaging is slender, like Clinique's almost lipstick. the product is moist and has a slanted tip. did it volumize? maybe a little, but not much. however, it is just the right amount of moisture
i too got sucked in by the notion of volume + gloss. i didn't see much increase in either. nothing wrong with it, per se, it is a shampoo and conditioner and it acts as a shampoo and conditioner. smells fine, cleans your hair, conditioner doesn't seem to weigh hair down -but it was little different from any other shampoo and conditioner combo for volume. for me, the most noticable shine + volume comes from the brilliant brunette volumizing line -when i use that, i can see a difference. this? don't waste your money (not that its a lot of money to waste -but still, any waste of money is a waste). am bitter i boguth this cmombo instead of just restocknig the brilliant brunette combo. to the back of the closet it will go
love love love! great totally natural color
Moisturizers -Olay - Definity Deep Penetrating Foaming Moisturizer
wendi6716 2/4/2008 11:40:00 AM
i wanted to love this. i was prepared to love this. i seemed the perfect demographic for this - am 39 with sun damage/spots, only need a light moisturizer, etc. alas, i hated this. it never absorbed fully into my skin (no matter how little i used it left a waxy/unpleasant coating on my skin). worse, within 4 days, it broke me out, horribly and it took me almost 3 weeks to get my skin back to normal. now i have even MORE discoloration than before. thanks olay, not only for failing to reduce my sun damage - but for adding scars. oh, and a high price to boot. i mean, i don't mind paying $20 (or more) for a moisturizer or treatment that's great - but for this drugstore "breakout in mousse form" i think not!
Lip Gloss -Sally Hansen - Diamond Lip Treatment in Honeymoon Red
wendi6716 12/23/2007 8:01:00 PM
Like all Diamond Lip glosses, this is an extremely sheer color. That said, if your'e looking for a sheer true red gloss (I was), this could be for you. I love the diamond glosses -have the ever-fabulous neutral ylbb royal romance, as well as the "just bitten" always ascher. when i saw hneymoon red, i thought it might give that "in from the cold" reddish-pink lip -and it did :) happy happy -and so cheap! i would take a lippie off for staying power (almost none), but then, for lipgloss this cheap-i'll reapply.
in general i love BBs lip balms-even the MUAreviled honey one. that said, i HATED these. waaaaay too shimmery (like metallic paint) and opaque and worst of all -DRYING every lip wrinkle showed, even those i had no idea i had -i think this product may have creatively invented some new lip wrinkles, just for fun. tried it in papaya > and raisin. both horrid horrid horrid ugh.
this is an INSANELY expensive, yet sadly HG product for me (sadly only because of the insanely expensive part) i liked the 'normal' lip fusion fine, but this stuff really kicks it up a notch. use it every night as a bedtime treatment, drink your water (heck, drink your water anyway, its healthy) and at some point within, oh 10 days or so, the angelina jolie lip fairy will come while you are sleeping and plant some big full lips on ya. no, really. the tooth fairy has got nuthin on the angelina jolie lip fairy -although if she'd leave money under my pillow so i could afford more of this, that'd be even better.
Lotions/ Creams -Soap and Glory - The Righteous Butter
wendi6716 12/9/2007 9:20:00 PM
so -long long ago i was a huge fan of Benefit's "touch me and then try to leave" cream. BUT - i don't really have dry skin and couldn't justify spending alot on something that wasn't a 'need' but merely a 'want' for the way it sunk into my skin, smelled luscious, and made me soft. Enter Soap & Glory's righteous butter. This is CLEARLY a knockoff of "touch me and then try to leave"-and its a successful knockoff at that. It too smells good, sinks right in, makes me soft -all for pennies at Target. All hail Target. *sigh*
Scrubs -Unlisted Brand - Soap and Glory - Flake Away

meh - this was nothing special. smelled ok, scrubbed ok, but left me filmy
Scrubs -Philosophy - Amazing Grace Olive Oil Scrub
wendi6716 12/9/2007 9:04:00 PM
I received this in a kit and although i love the smell -its not scrubby enough. I use it as directed - on dry skin before the shower -and it exfoliates a tiny bit, moisturizes alot, and smells good, then rinses away. NOT what i'm looking for in a scrub. Definitely not my HG, merely pleasant at best. Sadly, also expensive
This review is for the new lip stain/gloss duo in indian red + moonfleet. As other reviewers have mentioned, indian red is a perfect, warm

Lotions/ Creams -Avon - ANEW CLINICAL Lift and Tuck Professional Body Shaper
wendi6716 11/17/2007 10:47:00 AM
Surprisingly, this stuff works REALLY well. I never would have purchased it (given how I have tried other, body sculpting creams that did nothing) BUT after readnig the reviews I tried it. I'm 39 and have started gettnig that horrific age related thickening at the waist -every bit of fat seems to gather there for me. Anyway, diet + exercise = ok , but diet + exercise + this stuff appied twice a day = WOW. I lost 2 inches in my waist after adding this into my regimen. Seriously. Its kind of creepy because i don't know WHY it works. If i had to guess mechanism, i know other waaaaay more expensive creams (like the ones form Bliss spa) work because the active ingredients release a bit of fat from the layer beneath the skin - BUT -then you have to burn it off or it comes home to roost. In other words, i think this may help with the ever elusive "spot reduction" idea
