This is perfect for people like me who don't want to subject their teeth to intense whitening every few months. I use this whitener to make my teeth brighter without making them extra sensitive.

I didn't like the texture of these eyeshadows because they felt too rough on my eyelid and I like powders to be more fine. Also, for the price, this isn't exactly wallet-friendly even for a drugstore line.

Happy In Bloom
This is the best Clinique perfume in my opinion because it's not overly pungeant like the original Happy could be due to all that citrus blended in it. In Bloom is different--it's young, fresh yet complex and sophisticated at the same time. I would classify it as a soft floral. The downside with this perfume is that it's only available once a year starting in January until they are sold out. For reference, I also love Chanel Chance, Givenchy Absolutely Irresistible and Dior Addict. The lasting power is quite good--around 6 hours with two sprays.

I love and slightly dislike the NARS lipglosses at the same time. The colors are gorgeous especially Harlow, Bloodwork and Orgasm. My favorite combinations are Orgasm on top of a clear lip balm followed by a coral lipstick on top of the gloss. The second fantastic combination consists of applying the Harlow lipgloss and then blending Bloodwork on top--what you get is the most gorgeous bright and glossy red lip ever which will be super hot for spring and summer! The next 4 hours or so feel good ONLY if you layer a lip balm underneath but if you dare wear this gloss without one, you will end up with those hideous white lines on your lips. Even though these are quite expensive for a lipgloss, they are worth it just because of the color selection. One last word of advice: do not stock up on these because they will start smelling badly in a few months. I love to buy just two at a time or get those pretty holiday sets [which come with 5 colors] and wear often--which you will want to do with the colors available.

The color that I've been loving from this range is Sweet Plum which is a sheer deep burgundy color on me (Clinique Black Honey dupe). This color is fantastic because it's still that statement dark winter lip without overpowering my fair skin or my eye makeup. The texture is also very nice--moisturizing and softening to my lips however, I did not notice any plumping action which is ok with me. This product has a slight citrusy scent to it which goes away after a couple of minutes so nobody should have a problem with it.

Not exactly 3 days
I have semi-curly hair, meaning that on some days it's more wavy and some days it's curly depending on the shampoo I use. I tried this product when my hair was curly and this did tame my frizz quite a bit but my hair did not stay straight for 3 days as promised. I would suggest that this product is used as a frizz tamer and not really a straighening product.

I love this moisturizer because it gave my combination oily skin only the hydration it needed and nothing extra. It's very hard for me to find a good moisturizer that doesn't break me out and I believe that this new Garnier gel-cream is a very good option for me. Also, this doesn't interfere with my liquid foundation which I use almost on a daily basis.

Very good body wash that can double as a moisturizer. I actually haven't been using a body moisturizer after my showers lately because after using this body wash my skin is left with a freshly-lotioned feeling. Obviously, you're not going to see major reversal of body aging however it will prolong the youthfullness of your skin because it will always be super hydrated. The scent is pleasant as well-- it's a light citrusy-vanilla scent. Overall, I will be buying this wonderful product in the future.

I do like this lipgloss but it's just a clear lip gloss and $14 seems to be a bit steep especially with lots of drugstore choices. I personally only splurge on cosmetics that give a special effect or have a very rare color.
