    Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft Washable Mascara

    Average, Everyday Weekend/Tshirt Mascara

    This is the type of mascara that you wear when you want to look like you aren't wearing mascara. There's nothing special about this ...it's the "white tshirt" of mascaras. I like my lashes a little bit more dramatic normally because they are already thick, but for those without really great lashes, this just might help with your "no make up look". Also, it doesn't flake or smudge, so it's really pretty basic...good to have around, but nothing super dramatic.

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Parisienne Eau de Parfum Spray

    For some reason the magazine sample smelled sooooo amazing that i couldn't get enough of this scent...but for some reason, the actual perfume doesn't smell as great. First I went to Sephora and spritzed it on myself and it went from a classy perfume to a really cheap rosy smell...my boss even commented negatively. Very clingy. I figured maybe it was my body chemistry. I went back and sprayed it on the sampler paper and carried it around, again it wasn't that great of a smell...Not sure why the magazine ads smell so good and this scent is so disappointing. Rosy, yes ...but nothing like what the commercial or marketing project.

    So Fresh, Not Overpowering

    A great, classic scent to have on hand when you want a change from the "perfumey" smell. This is the freshest, most uplifting scent that you can just spritz to feel absolutely happy and amazing. Since I don't always like to use this as a perfume, I leave it in the bathroom and have had guests use it like air freshener...which actually works out to be fantastic. (I know, no one wants to smell like an air freshener, but this works double duty in a great way for some odd reason). Also, the bottle is huge and lasts forever. Take it with you when travelling and spray your room or yourself for refreshment. A tall glass of minty lemon!

  • L'Occitane Rose Home Perfume

    I thought I would love this scent because I did in the store...but after i went home and sprayed it, it smelled like and old, musty home with leftover potpurri that was there since the 50's. Luckily, the smell fades pretty quickly. Thank god.

  • Bath & Body Works Shea Cashmere Body Cream

    I am a huge fan of body butters, but from them all...this is one of my favorites. It is the most luxurious of all of the body butters (bath and body works or body shop). Any time I make my home into a spa...this is the last stop. I use the rest of the body butters on normal days. The smell is a little heavy...but if you like vanilla and a musky scent, then slather this on and get into bed...you will wake up smelling fantastic and with the softest skin you can dream of. this is your "special" body lotion...it's just a little strong, so i can't wear it all day. Think of a comforting cashmere sweater on a cold winter day.

    Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum

    Sexy, Confident, Classy

    This perfume embodies it all - class, confidence, luxury, sexiness...it's not too strong but lasts forever and smells amazing. It's definitely the type of perfume to wear to an important business meeting...and it always turns head. Just as classic and amazing as the shoes...everyone loves it. I ripped this out of a magazine 4x before buying because it was a bit pricey. I just kept wanting it every time I smelled it. Highly recommended.

  • Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin

    I'll start by saying I am a fan of light, liquid foundation and sometimes concealer under the eyes...but my sister-in-law LOVES this foundation. She likes a bit more coverage, but still goes with the liquid foundation route. She gave it an awesome review to me stating that it was the right consistency (a little thicker) and because of this foundation she no longer needs to use concealer for small blemishes or bumps. It's a great two in one concealer/foundation that never looks like thick, pancake makeup but does give a little heavier than medium coverage. I've never found a drugstore brand that has been able to match my skin tone, but this one also seems to have one of the wider spectrum so I would definitely recommend this for anyone with a deeper skin tone and a need for a little extra coverage.

    Burberry Touch

    Eh...Nothing Special

    A pretty light fragrance..maybe for a teen or a Stepford Wife...there's nothing confident or strong here....just nice. I have a pretty strong personality and I guess my choice in perfumes are a little bit stronger , this one is just too nice for me. most of my perfumes are spicy oriental and sensuous...so this isn't anything like that.

    Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola! Eau de Parfum

    Roses and Romance, but not Super Floral

    I'm not a fan of floral fragrances at all...but this one captured me, romanced me and made me fall in love. It's very sweet...but like a romantic day in Paris. Can be worn by women of all ages and is definitely a go to fragrance. There are very few fragrances that smell great on my mother, myself and my sister...they are more floral, i'm more a sensuous/spicy oriental....this one seems to work on everyone. I would recommend this perfume for a gift. You can't go wrong. Universal fragrances are so rare so this is quite impressive.

    Smudgy, Soft...But Looks Good All Day

    i was looking for an eyeshadow that wouldn't break (stick is great) and wouldn't look like a black shadow on my eyes (makes them look smaller) but would give me the perfect smoky eye...so I got the black/white stick. I LOVE the way it looks on...glides on which easy, smudges around perfectly and the more it smudged all day the better it looked. I got countless compliments on this. So why the somewhat low rating? The caps on the stick came off too easily in my bag and smeared all over everything. Besides that it's a very soft stick so it seemed to melt/smear and never come off...I bought this stick three time because I loved it so much, but each time the caps came off or the shadow just fell out...not very sturdy. If you can be careful with this, then go for it for the look and keep it in your bathroom not your bag. Overall, I love the look but hate that it's not so portable and would rather carry my little pots and risk breakage.
