I am truly happy that I received a decant of this in a swap and didn't blind buy this in a store based on reviews. As a HUGE leather fan I thought this would be right up my alley. But the opening and middle notes are pure pepper on my skin and not in a good way. The top notes have a bit of a floral in there but the pepper overpowers them. Then it transitions into a pepper with possibly a little musk in it but again the pepper is ruling the show. Finally after an hour of wearing it, the leather makes it's appearance. And that is the biggest disappointment. I like my leathers deep, worn and in your face and this one is a trace of that "new brown leather jacket" smell from a mall store but very faint. I'm not sure why some of said the sillage on this is good because through the whole development is wore close to the body with little projection. I've had it on for almost two hours now and there's very little remaining. In fact, I could probably scrub a bit and wear another fragrance. Don't blind buy and try it a few times before you shell out those hard earned bucks on this one. There are so many excellent leathers out there that won't break the bank to choose from. I wouldn't waste time without thoroughly testing this first.

Not the best but I've definitely tried worse makeup removers. This has a gel texture and is able to remove waterproof mascara and stubborn gel eyeliner, though you may need to let the remover soak through your makeup before it's dislodged. It stings my eyes a bit and leaves a residue on my skin, so I can't say that I'd repurchase. This is also scented (Herbs? Cologne?) so I end up washing my face with a separate cleanser afterwards.

My HG primer.On my dry, dull, unevenly pigmented skin, this is the best so far for me. Thicker and more emollient than the laura mercier, this gel like primer makes me literally glow, making my skin looks and feel "bouncy". I am not sure about the wear time because I only wear base makeup when at work or going out.What I love is the very noticeable translucent effect that makes my skin looks hydrated.I just wish this was not so pricey. Definitely not for oily skin.

Review for 06 beige pinkWhile the 03 antique rose in this same range had a matte yet glowing finish ( accentuated with balm underneath such an intense color) 06 is a MLBB shade with a more traditional powdery matte finish.This velvety natural soft pink is a tad livelier, elegant version of my lips, cancelling the dead mauve tone that I naturally have on my pigmented lips. The beige in this color makes it wear as easy as a balanced nude ( not a true beige, just natural).Again no adverse reactions and no strong fragrance.

Review for 03 Antique RoseA glowing matte lipstick, with strong pigmentation yet certain translucence which appears not flat. I was originally looking for Aucoin's bloodroses but is so hard to find here in Japan. So I searched for a similar deep yet not fully vampy wine. Wine browns look dirty on me, so it had to be just like a wine with some pink or rose to tone it down.This particular color is a wine rose that goes well with pink neutral and even yellowish skin, I found it easy to wear despite the very intense color being somehow "bright" ( this is what I like about this lipstick).The case is really unique, a metallic shell striped in black, rose copper colors like most of Rykiel's sweaters.
