the packaging of this lipstick is very funky, I chose this shade on a whim because all the pink ones were sold out or used. However, it's actually very nice, it's just slightly more mauve than my natural lip color, I love how this looks layered with my almay whipped gloss in candied cider.
this stuff is crap, I tried it on the back of my hand and it started peeling off, I felt like I rubbed a thin layer of glue on!
Blush -L'Oreal - Blush Delice in Strawberry Tart [DISCONTINUED]

I think this is very cute to have around but only very fair girls would reap the benefits of this blush cause it doesn't show up on anything but ivory i think. I prefer sugar plum over this shade.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Shiny-Licious in Coral Punch
xxbluecrushxx 4/30/2005 9:42:00 AM
I think this is a limited edition color but not sure yet. It looks like a cross between cherry berry and melon ball with faint gold shimmer in it. The texture of this gloss is a bit thinner than the original shiny-licious glosses and the sparkles actually show up a bit, the color is also very sheer but pigmented enough to be noticed. I don't like the scent though, I think it's trying to be some kind of punch but it smells plasticky. However, if I ran out of this, I would buy again.
I have this in Persimmon and got pink lemonade for free. They are really cute! I don't think they're greasy, just sticky but they havent clogged my pores yet. I won't use it as a blush though but it looks really nice on my lips and eyes, I look well rested and dewey, enough said.
I ALMOST like these better than the stila lipglazes, ALMOST. For sure, these glosses are much better than anything I've tried at the drugstore. It's smooth and not sticky at all but it feels very long lasting on lips. And as for the scent, I said it once and I'll say it again, waaay better cotton candy taste than the one by jessica simpson.
Well, this isn't the softest brush but it was bigger than I expected which is good cause I can never find a big brush. However, it sheds quite a bit so run your fingers through it when you get it and let it air out cause mine smells funny. As for powder and such, it does an ok job, no complains
I think the click pens are really cute but impractical but I don't mind stupid packaging as long as it doesn't break and I like that I dont have to use my fingers so I'm not taking points off. Peony is a cute lavendar with a VERY fine pearly finish in the tube and goes on clear on my lips. The smell is very sweet, better than the cotton candy flavor from the dessert beauty treats in my opinion. E.L.F. really went the whole nine yards, im impressed.
I ordered this in pink lemonade and I thought this was gonna be a gloss that I wasn't gonna like after I read all the reviews but I ordered it anyways lol and it's not too bad but that's just me and I have a high tolerance for these weird scents that cosmetic companies use. it doesn't bother me cause it fades but I thought it smelled like nail polish when I first opened it fyi. soo, the gloss itself is ok, it doesn't spread evenly because of the nail polish brush applicator but just give it a couple seconds to settle on your lips. It's smooth and not sticky at all, I would buy again
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
xxbluecrushxx 4/27/2005 4:17:00 PM
I LOVE clinique and the dramatically different lotion is a classic. I bought it a year ago and I'm only half way through, you get a lot of product(4oz compared to the usual 1.7) for 22USD in my opinion. Even though some reviewers complained that there's mineral oil in it, there's probably too little to cause breakout anyways, I squirted some on a blotting sheet and it didn't turn transparent. However, the only thing I don't like about this product is that it can make your face shiny so I usually only apply a liberal amount before I go to bed. Overall, a very good moisturizer, but if I found a more versatille one, I'd probably not repurchase this.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Kiss Gloss in Cool Mint
xxbluecrushxx 4/27/2005 3:13:00 PM
I don't care much for this gloss, I prefer the co bigelow mentha lipshine even if I have to spend the extra money.
These smell very sweet and the gloss itself looks very appealing in the tube but they just dont impress me as far as that. I got mine in a holiday set, I dont remember the name of the shade but it was a very redish pink. The color was beautiful but when I look at the ingredients, it's mostly polybutene(?) and preservatives, I'm not a health freak but is so much methylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben really necessary?
I'm just not impressed with these, the texture is very thin and oily making it last only a couple of minutes at the most and the scent is very artificial.
sooooo cute! This is the perfect pinky brown blush and it's impossible to overdo! My only gripe is that there's so little product.
I LOVE this gloss, it feels smooth and slick. As for the color, I thought it'd be more brown but whatever, I found out it looked amazing over my max factor colour perfection lipstick in #160 Posey. I especially like the brush applicator cause it picks up a lot of product which is a need for me because I have pretty full lips and I usually have to dip the wand a couple of times to get the gloss I need and with this brush, I don't have to do it as much.
