Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Heeley - Sel Marin

Oddly warm but definitely sea water. I smell salty water with green aspects and clear lemon but it doesn’t detract. Very dry and stark, almost alienating emotionally, not sure why, but I still really like it. Middle dry down goes through a masculine citrus/beeswax/tobacco stage. This has no gender, even to be unisex. It’s more of an atmosphere. I wish it were a touch cheaper because I'd wear this sometimes. Interesting scent. Good lasting power and I'd say it has good value, if it were a tiny bit more wearable for me.

Fragrances -Tokyo Milk -Bulletproof

on 3/10/2018 6:37:00 PM


wow, this one failed so utterly on me. All the previous reviews are just what I was looking for, but once this hit my skin, it was a sticky oversweet coconut with plastic smoke. Sythetic and very murky, clingy...I couldn't scrub it fast enough. Luckily this is a fairly inexpensive brand, so you can experiement without too much effort. But I'd say try this before you buy this for sure.

Fragrances -Tokyo Milk -Arsenic

This went on like a great green grass blend, but the grass rapidly dried down to rotting grass clippings with that sour, mildewy smell you get with that, and reminded me too much of slugs.

Fragrances -Bath and Body Works -Sea Mist and Mimosa

on 3/10/2018 6:30:00 PM

Listed notes are: Sea Salt Flower, Coconut, White Pepper, Italian Orris, Mimosa, Jasmine Petals, Amber Suede, Vanilla Bean, Skin Musk. I tried this one on in the shop and it was a Freesia-watery floral with sweet mimosa notes and salt. I liked it very much in a sort of not-wearing-real-perfume way and after about 20 minutes in the store, bought it. (on sale, yay.) After dry down, though, it became a boring, scent that reminded me of hairspray. Full dry down also produced a very pronounced sandalwood note that overtook everything else and since sandalwood and I rarely get along, I ended up hating this one and giving it away.

Fragrances -Bath and Body Works -Black

on 3/10/2018 6:27:00 PM

Listed notes are Vanilla, Oud and Violet . I get smoked cork, teakwood, with maybe a faint leather underneath. It's a very pleasant smoky wood scent with no sweet notes at all, just smooth and lovely. Dries down very vanilla. On a different day, I found it to be a close clone to Bulgari Black without the rubber notes. Drying down, the violet and vanilla come out and it becomes the bastard child of Insolence and Bulgari Black without the notes in Insolence that turned me off. I'm really loving this one, and it's the usual BBW super cheap if you get it on sale and in a huge bottle. It's sillage becomes skin-close fast, but it lasts all day like that, just a faint waft of smoked violet vanilla.

Lip Treatments -Blistex -Lip Medex

on 3/10/2018 6:26:00 PM


I always find myself reaching for the Blistex Lip Conditioner instead and I think it's because 1) the awful taste always finds it's way into my mouth and lingers. 2) The balm isn't very emollient/thick. 3) Doesn't seem to "heal" my dry lips. 4) Just doesn't FEEL good on the lips.

It does have a great minty feeling on the lips which I do like - I just wish it was as thick as the Blistex Lip Conditioner (pink jar).

Hair -Unlisted Brand -Bellami Hair Extensions

on 3/10/2018 6:02:00 PM


These extensions are good and bad. They’re amazing if you get the correct color, know how to blend them, and know how to style them. However, they are NOT 100% human hair. Do not bleach them or color them. I went to a salon to get my hair done, my extensions as well. Everything seemed fine; the color was fading and it wasn’t taking too long, BUT when my hair was done and I was just waiting for the extensions turns out that the hair was falling off with the slightest touch. Because, it’s not 100% human hair. Don’t waste $200 like me just for them to end up getting thrown away, in a trash can, at a salon only after a year of having them!!

Fragrances -Unlisted Brand -Alkemia Aphrodesia Perfume Oil

on 3/10/2018 5:59:00 PM

On me this is a very faint skin scent of citrus and amber. Amber has been known to go weird on me and smell like unwashed skin, and this one does that, so it smells just a little too much like body. Overall, though, it's pleasant and would work well for someone without the amber issue, like my sister, who wears amber clearly.

Pressed Powders -Clinique -Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder

on 3/10/2018 5:44:00 PM


I got this with my Clinique foundation when the Clinique consultant said my foundation would look more natural with this on top. This doesn't have a large color selection and none of the options worked well for my skin color. All either looked dark or a little on the beige side. Then why did I get one, right? Because I was on my "I WILL GET WHATEVER YOU TELL ME TO" day. Not proud!

For me it wasn't good and kind of pointless to be honest. My t-zone is on the oily side but not oily enough to need a powder. Other than changing the color a bit this powder didn't do anyhing on my face. But on the bright side, I have sensitive skin and this caused no irritation or pimple despite the fact I used it 6 days a week every week at the time.

It's not a bad product, just wasn't for me.

Eye Shadow -ColourPop -Pressed powder eyeshadow palette - Yes, Please!

on 3/10/2018 5:40:00 PM


Packaging is as always cute but it gets a bit dirty with time. The shadows are wonderfully pigmented although just because of that they are to be put with a wise hand, I found that you can easily go over board with it. I love the coloring of the palette, every time I use it I fall into a sunset look theme that I love each and every time. I loved the foiled gold shade that I believe is called “cake batter”. I’d recommend this to makeup lovers and non-picky artsy people :)
