I've been wanting to try the one love serum and haven't been able to get my hands on one. still debating on using points to buy one.

Morroccan Oil is the best hair product! I have fine curly hair that looks nice when I wear it natural or flat ironed but no matter what I need product on it- Moroccan Oil is the only one I can use that makes my hair look nice curly OR straight! And it smells amazing!

Haha f*@kin' cats...gotta love em though smile.gif

Ok so I got a different box delivered to me today than what's posted on my account. Should I even bother contacting BB Customer service?
Also, does anyone wanna trade their marylou for my hot mama?

I love the lip butter (and I'm a lip balm fiend/snob/whatever you want to call it). I don't think I'll abandon my burt's bee's for it, but I like how it's not too fruity or greasy. The perfume is alright, another scent to add to my collection. Love the liner and the chocolate, and I'm trying the shampoo tonight. 

That's what box I'm getting! I can't wait :)

I'm a recent perfume whore... I blame Sephora for always having awesome perfume samples.

 

On the plus side, I found an AWESOME perfume.  Unfortunately, it is made by Versace (Bright Crystal), and it is so not in my budget.  I'm determined to stalk Sephora sales & coupons til I can score it for at least half-off.  

 

And while I love trying new perfumes, I totally sympathize with the people who can't wear it or don't enjoy it, and I think there should be an opt-out on the BB website.

 

Lastly... I always want to pronounce Versace "Ver-SAYSE" because of the Striptease movie...  I really want someone to compliment my perfume so I can say "Thanks, it's Ver-sayse!"

I will reapply it if I can't still smell it. Except Orange Sanguine. The smell comes and goes a lot.

 

I stay home with my daughter all day.  She doesn't seem to mind my many perfumes...hehe!  She did mind it when I squirted her in the face with a Juicy Couture sample once.  Whoopsie...LOL

GOD, that's the one I'm wearing today!  Can't remember where I got the sample....but it is DIIIIIIIIIIIIIVINE.  I'd buy it if I didn't already have a shitton of other samples as well as at least 10 full size perfumes and over 20 rollerballs.  roflmao.gif

Has anyone tried the ModelCo lipgloss? What color? What did you think about it?

I have tried it a few times already and I got one in the shade "Berry Pink". While it does say flat out that it is a sheer formulation, I wish it had just a bit more color to it, in the tube it looks gorgeous and on the lips it only gives a hint of color. Today I paired it over a Revlon Lip Butter in "Raspberry Pie" even though I typically wouldn't pair a gloss with those. However, I felt like they really complimented each other nicely. It is a nice smooth formulation in my opinion and smells amazing. If it were just a bit more pigmented, I would be in total heaven. :)

I have...it's alright.  The color I got was the bright pink (can't remember the name off the top of my head.)  It is really gloopy...you can tell how gloopy it is when you take the wand out of the bottle...you know...the slurrrrrrrrrrrp and then a bit of goo that is kinda drippy but not really THAT bad.  But I haven't really found a lip gloss that wasn't.  It is nice and sheer for me.  I probably wouldn't buy it...but I'll keep it around in my makeup drawers.

Ahh, I love that perfume.  It's my current favorite, it smells so good and it's so light as well!

lol! hilarious description. I am hoping for a the nude shade, I think it's striptease? It can slurrrrrrp and glop all it wants as long as it's a subtle neutral shade!

I don't know if you have a Gordman's near you, but they have Bright Crystal for $35. They also always have coupons for 15-20%, so you could get it for under $30. I think it's a 1 oz bottle.

Me too. I canceled my christmas clarisonic order on amazon so I could get it for ten dollars cheaper with rtr10, plus a sample pack, but I can't get it to work, so I'm waiting and trying every few hrs when I take a break from writing papers (like now haha) I haven't had any luck all day.

The frownies things have a printed sticker on them that say 'Contains 1 reusable set', covering up where it said '3 reusable sets'.  For whatever reason, packaging corrections (even more so when it's corrected to a higher price) get on my nerves, and I don't know why. I know that for a smaller company a misprint is very expensive, but gaaaah pay attention to the proofs, or make up your mind, or get appropriate packaging for a sample, or whatever.  I really don't know why it irks me so much.  It's like finding crumbs in butter.

It should irk you more that they're trying to use a product once instead of three times so if you like them you'll have to buy even more and they make more money out of changing the little tag. (they really could have removed the first one)

Slightly off topic, but do you LOVE those Lip Butters like I do?! I have the Raspberry Pie, Tutti Frutti (orange), and want to get the Gumdrop (lavender) one next. I was thinking how cool would it be to do a pretty much bare face with a lavender lip? Especially since I have pale skin and dark hair.... this is me trying to be interesting with my makeup, I'm sure people will think I'm weird haha.

I have the opposite problem...Im 46 and I even have eyecreams as my splurge item ...I NEED all the help I can get! Instead then send me eye tattoos,sparkly lipgloss and other stuff better suited to someone half my age. I changed my profile a few months back and all that got me was more lipgloss(yuck!)..I seriously think BB doesnt pay any attention to our profiles, I think its just random products of whatever they have the most of.

Revlon lip butters were my gateway drug when it came to makeup products. I started with Tutti Frutti (still my favorite and named after a lipstick from the 1950's), then Candy Apple, Red Velvet, Cupcake, and Sugar Plum. I only started in May 2012 and now I have about 30 lip products of various kinds. It has branched out into eyeliner, nail polish, and perfume.

You are so right... It's probably been almost a decade since I've seen it... I had the word "striptease" on the brain from the ModelCo lipgloss!! I will check out Overstock because I need this perfume in my life!
