Yum! The perfect summer scent. Beach Party does not smell like a beach or sand, but rather a fruity pina colada. Imagine strawberry mixed with coconut. Beach Party makes me think of kicking back on the beach with a cocktail and a magazine. Strangely, this 3-in-1 smells a lot like Pink Frosted Layer Cake, so if you like that one, you'll love Beach Party.

This might work on people with full lashes who need length. I'm the opposite; I need thickening but not so much lengthening. I felt this product was a total dud. It barely looked as if I were wearing any mascara at all. Drugstore products work better than this stuff.

Medium pink with heavy blue undertones. Looks lilac in the bottle, but appears more pink on the nails. There is a subtle silver shimmer, although not much. This shade will probably look best on paler girls. I'm an NW20, and its very flattering on me. Would repurchase.

Very pretty purple-mauve polish with holo. The holo effect is fairly subtle on me (although still noticeable), so it's safe to wear to the office. My only complaint is that the application goes on a bit gloppy- other than that, a new favorite.

This gloss is just way too shimmery on my lips. I was looking for something more subtle. It's a milky pink, with a slight green iridescence that makes it uber-shiny. The consistency is nice and the scent is highly perfumey. Returning.

This is a great blush when you want to look awake and perky. It's highly pigmented- IMO even more than my NARS and Shu blushes. I never would have chosen this color on my own but an MA suggested it to me. In the pan, it looks like a muted rose, but it's much brighter and bronzy on my NW20/PPP skin. Because it's so pigmented, I usually only reach for it at night, as I prefer more …Read more

Self Tanners - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Bronze Gelee in medium deep

This stuff turned way too dark and orange on my PPP (nc20) skin. I could however imagine this color looking nice on a medium skinned person. The smell was not as offensive as most self-tanners but I still could smell it on my skin for a few days afterwards-yuck. Would not repurchase.

I never buy drugstore m/u or skincare, but my skin was acting up like crazy so I decided to try a bunch of different products to see if anything would work. I tried it all- high end, drugstore, but nothing could calm my irritated skin. Then I tried this (I think it was $3) and my skin looked a million times better after one use. The redness was gone and it helped to clear acne. HG, and I am now …Read more
