I received this as a sample from Bzzagent and I actually really like this product. Usually I don't use hair spray since I have think and straight hair. My hair only falls flat if I don't wash it for over two days. I usually use hair wax or pomade if I want some definition and texture because I feel that all sprays and gels make my hair stiff and unnatural. To my surprise, this actually works fairly well to define the style and keep my hair soft. I will buy it again if I run out since it's very handy to use for the days that I want my hair to look more fluffy and still stay defined.
This stuff is ok, pretty good but not the best consider the price. It really make my hair feel soft and smooth when I put it on damp hair, but that soft feeling just disappeared after my hair is dry. I also need to put a lot on before I can notice any difference on my hair, it would look like I have nothing on my hair if I only put on the recommended dime size. It is really expensive also, I got a 12 oz. bottle and it runs out super fast. But still a really good product though, I imagine that it would be good on fine, thin or oily hair, but my hair is super dry, coarse and thick. Not the right product for me, I need something more moisturizing .
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Wild Honeysuckle EDT

I love this scent so much, this is probably the best scent that's currently available at BBW. It smells exactly like honeysuckle, sweet and refreshing. I usually don't like floral scent but this one is different, it some how manages to be sweet and floral at the same time. I also like the EDT better than the lotion, it smells more like real honeysuckle for some reason.
This smells like sandalwood. I can't even get a tiny bit of rose or jasmine note in this, it's just simply woody. This perfume smells exactly like those sandalwood fans I saw at my grandma's house when I was in China. That what I was thinking immediately after I open the box. I finally understand why everyone says that this perfume makes them smell like old lady. But it doesn't smell terrible either, my mom would probably like it.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Tropical Passionfruit

OMG, I just found out that they discontinued this scent when i went to BBW for their 5 for $25 sale. And they don't even carry this on their website anymore, It doesn't really smell like passion fruit but it smells really nice, sweet and fruity but refreshing at the same time. I just love it. sometime I even use the body splash as air freshener, spray it in my room, now I'm so regret I did that, waste so much of my last bottle. I don't know where to find this anymore.
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Nadinola Cocoa Butter Cream

I LOVE LOVE this cream. I bought this because of the good reviews on MUA, and i absolutely love it. This cream smells better and works much better than Palmer's cocoa butter. It just smells like milk chocolate, better than any other body lotion or body butter I have ever used before. And it sinks into the skin right away, not greasy or oily at all, very moisturizing. I just can't wait to put it on my skin after shower. It's super cheap too, I got mine from Walmart, $0.99. This is the best body cream.
Lip Gloss -E.L.F. - Luscious Liquid Lipstick - ALL

This is a great lip gloss for one dollar, i love the smell , vanilla mint, smells really sweet and refreshing at the same time, not stick at all, great colors. Love it.
I don't like this eye shadow at all. The color you see in the pan is very different from the color on their website, and the color after you put it on is very different from the color in the pan. I got this in butternut, pink and silver.and i hate all of them. I usually like shimmer eye shadows and even though these eys shadows looks shimmery when they are in the pans, they somehow goes on very matte. To describe it more accuratly, it feels like they mixed some matte eye shadow with glitter particles to create that simmery looking in the pan. This eye shadow is also extremely powdery. I use my own eye shadow brush to apply this. If I apply it normally, the color would be so faint that it just look like i have nothing on, if I try to use the brush to pick up more product at once, the powder would fall into my eyes. This eye shadow doesn't even worth one dollar, I can get a much better eye shadow palette with two dollar or so.
Bronzers -E.L.F. - Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder -- Sunkissed
zry900402 12/15/2008 6:22:00 AM
I actually like this bronzer pretty much. I have it in all three shades and this sun kissed is the best one because it looks more golden than brown on my face. Warm tan is too dark and luminance is too light. The packaging is terrible, very hard to open and kind of inconvenient. Another downside is that it breaks easily. I keep them in my purse and they broke within one week, so now I have to put them in empty sifter jars and use them as loose powder bronzer
I have tried almost every single product from e.l.f( not include that newly came out studio line), and this is so far my favorite other than their brushes. The color is very very nice and like a lot of other reviewers said, it does look like that Nars blush. I actually like this one better than the Nars one because this one is less shimmery and looks more natural. It goes on really smoothly that I have no problem apply this even with finger. Overall LOVE this blush.
I actually like this foundation. Mostly because of the shade i got is a perfect match for my skin. I am Asain, and i have very very light skin with stronge yellow undertone. So all the other foundation i tried, if it's light enough for my skin, it would end uo makes my face looks pinky, if it's yellow enough, it would make my face looks darker than my neck, and the foundation would turn out to be more orangy than yellowish after i blend it in. Anyways, I found out that light 4 is perfect for my skin. The coverage is really sheer though, it did a good job even out the skin tone, but it can't even cover some minor acne scar. So i would recommend this foundation if you want nature looking. I also like the texture and packaging of this foundation. It came out liquid and kind of dries up to a powder like texture on the face which is not as greasy as most other liquid foundation. And the squeeze bottle works so much better than those glass bottles if you use your finger or blending wedges to apply the foundtaion. Overall, this foundation is good for the price.
I can't stand this. This is product is a joke. It smells sooooo bad!! I can't even explain what it smells like. It is just ridiculous.
This thing doesn't work for me. It feels great after I applied it,and i like the firming feeling. but it did absolutely nothing to my skin, my pimples are still as big as before, i didn't help the blackheats either. My skin is soomth after i use it, but washing my face with a soap also make it smooth. I probably will repurchase it, just because it's fun to apple it.
this thing is wired! I bought it because it was on sale at wal-mart, i got the liquid and pressed powder version of this as a package so i expect them to be in the same color. But the problem is that even though them are both 120 creamy natural, the powder is so pale and the liquid is way too dark and orangy. The powder makes me look like ghost and it doesn't cover any thing . The liquid covers pretty good if i put a lot of it on my face, but then my face would be all red and dark. I just don't understand what are they thinking!! And the packaging is horrible
