Such a pretty soft peachy-pink color. I wore this on my toes for more than a week w/ no chipping. Now that I'm tan I think its a lil too muted for a pedi color but looks esp. nice in the spring months. Has a pretty frost element that makes it look satin-y on. I'm only knocking off a lippie cuz it can apply streaky. Best to use a base coat w/ this one. Check this out if you like …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - Summer Cocktail Shimmer Body Lotion - Tropical Colada

Wow, this really does smell like a Pina Colada. It even has the light rum note. Nice scent, the rum keeps it from being overly sweet. The pineapple tends to dominate this, which is why I knocked off a lippie. However, the coconut smells really creamy, not at all artificial. I put this over my self-tanner to smell better and bring out a little bit of glimmer. If ur looking for a glittery lotion …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - Coco Cabana

May/13/2005

Ugh at first I thought this was sooo nasty smelling. In a way I still do. Upon first spray (I have the body spray version; it evaporates quicker), Coco Cabana smells excessively sweet. However, this smells INCREDIBLE to me on the beach. After a day of lying on a beach towel in the southern California sun and pulling on a tank that I had lightly spritzed w/ this, I felt myself unwind even more. It …Read more

Candles - Illuminations - Pineapple Cilantro Jar Candle

This scent smells sooo good in the summer, fruity and clean at the same time. I like how the cilantro gives it a crispness. Has really good "throw". I usually buy these when they're on sale or when I get e-mailed a coupon. Still, I doubt I would repurchase just because pineapple can get to be kind of cloying after a while, or at least to me. Excellent scent but I prefer the …Read more

I'm giving this five l/s even tho, truth be told, its the only orange/coral e/s I've ever tried. I received some coral earrings for V-day and needed some e/s to match, so I picked this up. It also probably had something to do w/ the fact that I love the name too. It has a lot more gold in it than the swatch on the website describes. Still, it goes on a medium bright apricot coral color …Read more

Sorry I can't get on the bandwagon w/ this one. RFB looked really pretty in the bottle, a frosty warm light pink color but on my nails it just looked like a layer of silvery-pink frost. Not a lot of pigment. Still a good quality polish, OPI takes more than a week to chip on me. I prefer Aphrodite's Pink Nightie (frosty light pink) or Dancing In the Isles (frosty peachy-pink) to this.

Self Tanners - Jergens - Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer - Medium to Tan Skin Tones

May/05/2005

Meh. Good in and of itself but not HG material for me at least. This moisturizes my dry skin adquately and while it does have a typical self-tanner smell to it, its not nearly as bad as other brands I've tried (ahem, neutrogena). Usually the smell can be remedied by using a glycerin soap in the shower or a body spray after application. Unfortunately, this was a little too subtle for me. My …Read more

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Super Lustrous gloss - Rose Blaze

May/02/2005

I would def. buy this again. Reminds me a lot of last summer's LE Coral Glow color but w/ a pretty rose tone. The term "fiery" comes to mind. Goes on thin and wears v. well. Goes on a *little* too sheer, hence the missing lippie. I'm not really feeling how Revlon changed the tube colors, but it's still a nice square tube w/ a fairly good wand. This looks esp. pretty when …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Osaka-to-me Orange

Apr/30/2005

If you have the audacity to wear bright colors, you can wear this. Osaka is a pretty, summery bright yellow orange creme. No shimmer but looks really glossy. Wears v. well, like any OPI lacquer. Looks best when my feet are tan. Ppl w/ v. cool-toned skin might want something a bit more pastel or w/ a bit more pink. My only complaint is that it has a tendency to streak on application, so I took off …Read more

Nice apricot color, altho I wish it had more pigment. I like to uses over pink lip colors to warm them up. Brings a slight muted apricot tone. By itself it looks like a sheer gold gloss. Has tiny little gold glitters but not super-sparkly. I like this now but I would still rather repurchase Wonderstruck than this one.
