Very very light. Have to apply several coats. Consistency is super watery. Very disappointed but then again its very cheap, only$1.00.
Very good polish for the price. I just wish there was a bigger color selection. Easy to use, glides simply, and dries quickly. I will be buying more colors in the near future.
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

I started using this a little over a week and I can't believe how moisturized my nails and cuticles are. It has a rich lemony scent that quickly goes away in about 10 minutes or so. You don't need much product to get the desired affect. It will last a long long time. I only have to literally tap a little on my fingers and it can easily cover a whole hand. It leaves my cuticles so soft. I used to have dry and rough skin around my nails now I love looking down at them. I use it every night to go to bed and before I go out if its very cold. Def. recommend this to everyone! It's a little pricey but well worth it!
Eyeliner -Revlon - Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Charcoal

I recently bought this eyeliner to substitute my pencil eyeliner. I had high expectations because of the great reviews but it did not live up to them. It does not glide on easily at all. I have to constanly glide it back and forth on my lower lashline to get any color. This causes my eye a little irritation. Its not smooth, a bit hard even after warming it with my hands. Very disappointed.
I have the trio set called "Evening Shimmer". Perfect for a smoky look. On the package it tells you which color to put on which part of eye which is very helpful. The silver is nice and shimmering. Can be used with other shadows and colors. Don't really like the white. A bit chalky. The black is great for the darker look effect. Overall pretty good for the price. Have not tried other pigments yet.
I own the Prestige eyeshadow in "Angel" and I really like it. It's the perfect color to highlight under the brow and in the corners of the eyes. Its also good to wear as an everyday shimmer with black eyeliner. I love the shimmer as it give off a glow and really makes the eyes pop. Looking forward to purchasing more colors.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BLUSH!! One of the first blush I ever purchased and I still love it til this very day. A nice pinky color if applied loosely. Gives off a nice shimmery glow. Applying too much will look too pink. Perfect for an everyday look. Goes well with all eyeshadows, very versatile. Highly recommend. The brush it comes with is a bit small but I use a bigger blush brush. No big deal.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

A good scrub but I feel its a little harsh on the face. The little beads feel like its burning/cutting the skin sometimes. Very tingling sensation after its washed off. Skin looks cleaner afterwards but I notice some red spots on my face afterwards.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Sweet Daydream ] [DISCONTINUED]

MY FAVORITE OF ALL THE SECRET GARDEN SCENTS. The only thing is that I wish it lasted longer. I would spry constantly but it wears off pretty quick but I love the scent so much that I would buy again. Sweet smell, not overpowering but not too fruity either.
Don't like this smell much, however I know its a top seller and most people do like it. Strong pungent smell. To me it smells like alcohol but it gets a little better as the top notes wear off. Not my fave.
Not the best fragrances in VS but one of the good ones compared to others. Does not really smell like pear, has a little of a cucumber scent but not to pungent. Can't really pinpoint the scent to a fruit though. Long lasting aroma, smell stays on your clothes.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Gloss Butterscotcha
xxclusivelySS 1/27/2009 10:15:00 PM
The best lip gloss of all the Beauty Rush lip glosses I have tried so far. It has more of a pigment than the rest. It gives off a shiny luminous color. A tint of pink. Looks great on all skin tones. It also smells and tastes very good. Def. my favorite. I find when you apply with your finger or a small brush it goes on less sticky and gooey. The applicator is not the best in my opinion. I find when you apply with your fingers you don't get an excess amount on your lips which helps prevent the white residue.
Top/Base Coats -Sally Hansen - Hard as Wraps - Acrylic Gel

I bought this product with the intent of having stronger longer nails. Upon applying to my nails the first time, I noticed instantly it began to bubble. The consistency was thick and sometimes a little stringy. It goes on clear (I have the bottle little bottle and the polish looks blue although it goes on clear). It lasts a long time on nail. Did not peel. I did feel like my nails were a little bit harder. I applied it again and it did not bubble up as much as the first time but there are still noticeable bubbles. Cannot apply nail polish over it as it would look really messy. Still looking for a better product.
