  • Bath & Body Works Liplicious Lip Gloss

    Bath & Body Works Liplicious Lip Gloss

    Flavored everyday lip gloss

    This BBW gloss is still sticky, but I think a little less sticky than Philosophy Flavored Lip Shine, and a lot less sticky than Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss. Pink Grapefruit gave almost no color on my lips (but it had a nice shine, and the scent was so good). Black Cherry looks great on my lips by adding a nice sheer red healthy color. I also appreciate their slanted-tip applicators. When they are on mix & match sale, I intend to buy more.

  • Bath & Body Works White Barn Candle Co. Scented Candle

    Over the years we tried various BBW candles. It is nice and fun to change a scent depending on my mood as well as on occasions. I get excited about the holiday collection by BBW and The Body Shop each year. I loved White Burn's Warm Apple Pie scent. I think White Barn candle is replaced by BBW Signature Collection and Slatkin.

  • Victoria's Secret VS Makeup Eye Shadow Quad

    When I saw it at a VS store, I thought that this quad would be fun for creating a shimmer highlighting effect, just like I do with a Clinique's eye shadow quad. I was hoping that this eye shadow would be able to alternate it with an affordable price. The shadows are indeed silky, and glide easily on my eyelids. The lightest and darkest shades are nice and give me subtle smoky eyes, but the two middle ones lack pigment and crease easily without a primer. I end up using the two colors, instead of all four. Nice color combination, but I wish their colors popped out more.

  • Goody Ouchless Thick Elastics
    6.0

    Goody Ouchless Thick Elastics

    So long metal clasp!

    I never liked elastics with the metal closure. These Ouchless elastics have no metal pieces, are inexpensive, and look better too. But of course after some time, they do also snap in two or stretch out. This one is good, but not strong as their StayPut collection. I like the StayPut elastic bands because they are heavy-duty, longer lasting, better elastics for my thick hair, and do not slip out but stay in place for all day long.

  • Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535 Insect Repellent Unscented SPF 15 Aerosol Spray

    My friend who buys/sells Avon gave me a Skin So Soft Bug Guard spray can in SPF 30 two summers ago. The smell was, as expected, not pleasant but was not tolerable. It kept mosquitoes away, maybe not completely but our family got bitten significantly less. It seemed to be sweat resistant. It was a good bug repellent, but I would not rely on it as a main sunscreen product (a bit sticky and smelly as sunblock).

  • Estee Lauder Sensuous Eau de Parfum Spray
    6.0

    Estee Lauder Sensuous Eau de Parfum Spray

    Smells different on my skin

    I usually love a perfume featuring a woody and earthy scent, but this one is mixed with a strange sweet scent that lingers on my skin. This perfume came with a Estee Lauder favorites miniature set. I thought that the design of this bottle was the ugliest and most old-fashioned of all. Anyway, when I first sprayed, I thought the scent was interesting, and it made me picture of amber, cedar, citrus, honey, and vanilla. But once this scent dried down, only the sweet and heavy floral scent was left on my skin. It smells nice in the bottle. Maybe it is due to my body chemistry? I appreciate its long lasting scent, but there is something about the scent I cannot get into. My favorite Estee Lauder perfume is "Beautiful", their bottle design is also not really beautiful and exciting though.

  • Schick Intuition All-In-One Shaver Refills

    Even though I am not completely happy with Intuition, I still use it at my gym because of their convenient built-in moisturizing cream to shorten my shave time. But their refill blades seem to be getting even more expensive. It is pity that I have to buy refills when the moisturizing bar is still left. Anyway, my last refill cartridge was like $8.99 at Target for 3 blades! This may be the last package. BTW, this razor is definitely not ideal for the bikini area. Obvious? Well, I learned the hard way. lol.

  • MAC Pencil Sharpener
    9.0

    MAC Pencil Sharpener

    Good investment

    I used to buy cheap sharpeners. I have two NYC Sharpeners, a free one from Clinique, one from Ulta, and one from Sephora. My friend was using this MAC sharpener, and she told me it was the best. I was skeptical at first, but when I borrowed it, I could immediately see the differences. It makes a pencil pointy (but not too dangerously pointy), and it shaves off thin layers, so there is not much waste. It is easy to clean. After getting my own, I tried all standard pencils and liners. If it fits, it shaves. Yes, I had to pay a few more dollars, but it is not a bad deal at all, considering the results. So far so good.

  • The Body Shop Cranberry Home Fragrance Oil

    A few years ago we started our new family tradition, which is to lit scented oil or candle from Thanksgiving to every night of Advent. I enjoy using the cranberry scent oil and candle especially for Thanksgiving night. This year's Body Shop's Cranberry oil is called "Cranberry Joy". It produces a sweet, tangy, and rich scent. Everyone, young and old, family and guests, loves this scent. It is strong, and a few drops fills up quickly, so I recommend to use this in a big room. Two thumbs up!

  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette
    7.0

    Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette

    Lovely scent, but not very long-lasting on my skin

    From the look of the bottle design, I thought this would be more suitable for young ladies, but it smells quite mature. It has a sweet floral and a little bit grassy and musky scent. The blend of the fragrance is wearable to many places at anytime, and uplifts my mood, but unfortunately, the scent disappears from my skin after 2-3 hours. This is not quite acceptable for a $60/bottle perfume. The bottle is absolutely adorable and eye-catching, but I am glad that I purchased their smaller bottle, not the 3.4 oz size.
