  • Alba Pineapple Quench Lip Balm

    If there's a way for a tube of lip balm to be too soft and too hard at the same time, Alba Organics has found it. As much as I like the taste and smell of this lip balm, the feel of it (heavy and stick) combined with the difficulty of putting on a lip balm that is at once too hard to put easily rub on your lips and too soft to stay in the proper cylindrical shape is just not worth the effort.

  • E.L.F. Hypershine Gloss

    This gloss was a lovely color, but so sticky and heavy, plus it just smelled weird.

  • E.L.F. Bronzer

    E.L.F. Bronzer

    Great contour bronzer

    I use this as a contour bronzer, and I love the way that the four shades blend together. The compact does tend to look a little grainy after long use, which I'm a little concerned about at the moment, and there is a little too much glitter, but from most angles it looks very natural, and it's a wonderful color.

  • Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Body Splash

    This scent faded very quickly for me, and the alcohol burn was a little bit too much.

  • Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Body Scrub

    I bought the Japanese Cherry flavor, and after a few days of using it I just couldn't stand the flavor anymore. It was just way too sweet and cloying; I can be a little sensitive to scents, and this one gave me headaches.

  • Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Body Lotion Enchanted Orchid

    The scent was a little too strong for me, but my least favorite part of this lotion was that my skin would absorb it pretty quickly, but then it would dry out again just as quickly. I had to apply way too much lotion way too many times.

  • Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Hand Soap

    I stock up on these when they go on sale; they smell great, pretty natural, and don't dry out my hands.

  • Bath & Body Works White Barn Night-Light Wallflowers

    I've tried a few of the scents offered for the wallflowers, and all of the ones that I've tried are chemical, cheap, and way too strong. Will not buy these again.

  • Maybelline New York Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm

    I tried the Quenched (clear, blue tube), Peppermint (clear, green tube), Pink Punch, Peach Kiss, and Cherry Me flavors. I love that they have SPF and the tint (on the ones that are tinted) is perfect, without being at all overwhelming. Definitely hydrating. When my lips are really dry, using this lip gloss actually makes my lips peel a little bit, which (gross as it sounds), I really like, because then I can go the rest of my day without worrying about how or whether my lips are peeling. My favorite was definitely Quenched, by far. The flavor was perfect, the level of shine is amazing, and I loved the way that the tube looked - definitely a lot different and more feminine than just about everything I've ever seen. The peach kiss was actually a little too bronze for my skin tone and the texture was a little funky, but definitely still super hydrating and fun to use. The pink punch was a great color as well, definitely better for me and not the same cotton candy shade as it is in the tube, which I was scared that it would be. The peppermint was also great; the only reason its not as great as the Quenched flavor, in my opinion, is that, as clean and clear at it is, the flavor is a little too recognizable and simple. I prefer the mystery of Quenched, which smells awesome but a little unrecognizable. Disclosure: I received these products from a bzzagent campaign.

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    I actually hated this mascara - I used it once and threw it away. It clumped horribly and didn't extend my lashes at all. I actually removed it and went back to my usual mascara - I never wore it outside of my room, so I have no comments on whether or not it would flake, but honestly it was so clumpy. My lashes all clumped together, with huge lumps of mascara, and they didn't lengthen at all. Disclosure: I received this product from a BzzAgent program.
