This bronzer is good, I'm sure, but I am a very pale blond and I received shade 3. It looked VERY orange on my skin, more so than any other bronzer I have tried. So I applied it, it has great pigment for the price (under $5) and unfortunately for me has great staying power. I would say if I had received this in the right color I would be very happy with the end result. Ruby Kisses makes some very good quality for very little money. Hopefully someone else has also received this bronzer so they can add to this post! Please feel free to add your opinions and thoughts!

Have you heard the gossip? There’s a new gloss in town! NYC New York Color Liquid Lip Shine is getting headlines with seriously high-drama color at a seriously low price. Pure pigments give a 3-D effect that’s off-the-charts glossy. Tons of hot new shades, from preppy nudes to bold statement hues – all for less than your weekly fashion magazine.
Can we say LOVE! I work at a department store as an assistant manager in the cosmetics section where we sell mainly designer lip glosses. All of these glosses start at around $30,and with the exception of Chanel I like this NYC Liquid Lipshine more than all of them! For only $2.49 you can have creamy, beautiful color that doesn't last hours by any means, but definitely long enough. The applicator is awesome, really skinny and flexible, which I wasn't expecting but LOVE! I got it in Fashion Fuchsia, a vibrant beautiful pink that I'm super happy with. I have to say I could totally buy one in every color, and I wouldn't even mind the expense! Very very happy with this lippy, I will totally repurchase this product.

The essence of strawberry makes this scent sweet, while African musk and sandalwood give it a lovingly bold and exotic appeal. Keep this cosmetic deodorant in any purse, bag, or pocket for convenient application wherever you are. Made with natural and organic Ingredients. Not tested on animals.
I don't want to be a nay sayer. I try really hard to like everything that I try from small natural skin care lines. The "Deoderette" is a mini deodorant, it is about the size of a chubby Chapstick but a bit shorter. While it would totally be convenient to throw in my pocketbook or clutch I find the size makes the deodorant quite difficult and uncomfortable to apply. The product itself is really waxy, so it isn't really slick when your applying it which adds to the difficulty of it. Personally I do not like deodorant, I'm bad and I use antiperspirant. For me it wasn't worth the difficulty, despite the size and the very cool naturalness and innovation of this company. The product does work well and has a pleasant strawberry scent and it does neutralize odors on the skin. If your a deodorant user, and you have issue with how much space your product takes up in your bag than this "Deodorette" could be for you. Unfortunately, you'll have to spend $10 for .3 oz on it......... for me its a no, but if you love all natural ingredients and cute little start up companies this product is definitely for you!

I have never seen Ruby Kisses before I received this basket of goodies, and I am lucky enough to be able to try quite a few of their products. I like them all, and they all seem pretty affordable. It is a little difficult to get an idea of what the company is all about, but all in all I think I like the fresh Urban feel of it. The Lip Salvation I was lucky enough to receive is clear, but you can also get it in colors. The packaging of this lippy is pretty standard, it works well and is no fuss which I like. It feels pretty utilitarian, which I really like because if I'm using a clear lip gloss with Shea butter, organic mint leaves and jojoba seed oil I want to be searching for this kind of tube in my bag. You just get the idea of comfort when you feel the package in your hand while searching through your bag! I didn't get much of a tingling feeling on my lips, which I was searching for because the scent is definitely there. I'm happy when I use it, my lips seem conditioned and it lasts a really long time. This product is awesome for under $6 I'm very happy and so are my lips!

I'm not gonna lie, it seems strange to be really excited about a nail file, but I am. For under $3 you get two sturdy, really good sized nail files. The file itself is exactly what I want, its fine enough that it doesn't pull, but gritty enough that you can really take some nail off if you want to. I have been using one for a couple of weeks and I can hardly tell that its been used at all. Probably the best cardboard nail file I have ever used! Sally Hansen always does such a good job for very little money, and the same is true here!

Super smooth and luxuriously nourishing our new hand lotions will leave your hands super soft and beautifully fragranced.
Mmm, I love the smell of blueberries and this hand lotion delivers highly on scent! I recently switched hand soaps and lately my hands have been super dry, although using this lotion really has softened my skin and made a recognizable difference. My hands literally went from dry and scratchy to silky and well-nourished just from this cream. It's a strong sweet scent so if that's what you're looking for, there's no shortage of fragrance here. Personally, I love the extra burst of fruitiness and find it surprisingly gratifying! Aside from the enchanting scent, my hands really do feel soft and silky couple that with a light touch of luxury, this lotion is an all-around go in my opinion. It dries fairly quickly and doesn't leave your hands feeling sticky, but softer and sweet-smelling, that enough had me sold from the go!

OH MY GOD THIS LIP BALM TASTES SO GOOD YOU GUYS.
I don't even like maple all that much, except when it's made into snow candy a la Little House in the Big Woods. Like, maple syrup is fine, but I'm not going to eat one of those maple candies shaped like a leaf. But this lip gloss! It just tastes sweet and nice.
It feels like maybe it's a little bit exfoliating? Like there is actually sugar in it? But there isn't. It's just nice, natural lip balm from our friends in Canada. I'm not saying you should rush out and buy it, but if you see it, try it, especially if you like maple.

Our perfect coverage formula creates a fast-drying, long-lasting coat. Free of toluene, phthalate and formaldehyde our Supreme Nail Polish line has soft bristles for a smooth even application.
If you wanna be with me
Baby there's a price to pay
I'm a party in a bottle
Got to apply me the right way
If you wanna be with me
I can make your wish come true
But you need about a million coats
To make the sparkles show through
With apologies to Xtina.
This nail polish is great IN THEORY but GURL. You have to put on so many coats to get those sparkle chunks (yeah, I said SPARKLE CHUNKS) out of that bottle! I think I put on like four and that was not nearly enough bling for my tastes. There are better glitter polishes than this one, so don't bother. But no better songs about being a genie in a bottle (except maybe this one).
Sultana says: This is a beautiful polish on the outside, but you definitely have to layer it on to show the sparkles. You end up with too much sparkle on one side of your nail and not enough on the other. So, no party here........super sad face!

I've always had a weird anti-foaming hand soap bias. I think it's maybe that I don't feel like I wash my hands as vigorously with foam soap as I do with a liquid soap, or something? Like, half the work is already done. It's lathered up. What's left for me to do? So I was skeptical with this one.
However, I put this Greenleaf Spa Foaming Hand Soap in my downstairs bathroom to see how the roommates reacted. "Oh my god," one said. "It's so...SMOOTH." I had to agree with him. The soap leaves your hands feeling clean, but SOFT. Like, creepily soft. And the scent we got - snow flowers (not a real flower) - isn't available online anymore, but if the others are anything like this one, they'll be dreamy.
Okay, so the soap is a little pricey. Maybe you get it and you put it in your Fancy Bathroom where some mom in the 80s would have put shell-shaped soaps that I never ever thought were candy and accidentally ate one time. Throw some seahorse towels on the rack, put this foaming hand soap behind the sink, and you got a stew* going.
*stylish toilet everyone wants
Overall, this help adds some shine to your hair and it does help with frizz control.
