Toners -La Prairie - Advanced Marine Biology Tonic
MyMajesty 12/10/2012 5:47:00 AM
Great, great tonic/serum, that's why I'll be buyinng it a million times. It makes my skin super soft and supple, it heals everything and does not cause any breakouts! I have been using it from 3 weeks now and everyone around have seen a huge improvement on my skin. It's brighter now and I have less breakouts than I usually used to have. I am truly recommending this magic product to everyone who wants to feel magic on her skin. It is, indeed, a little bit expensive but totally worth the money! Best tonic ever!
Fragrances -Dolce & Gabbana - Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme 2012 Release
MyMajesty 10/15/2012 7:01:00 AM
Warm, soft, velvety, smooth, powdery, creamy, feminine, sexy, sensuous fragrance! The most prominent notes I smell are marshmallow and vanilla with a tiny hint of raspberry at the top notes. The marshmallow-raspberry combo adds a hint of sweetness without being cavity inducing sugary sweet! It is most definitely not a sickly sweet candy teen scent, but more of a sexy, sensual ‘grown up’ scent. The sillage is fantastic without being overpowering as the scent itself is soft and not heavy. And the scent also lasts hours on my skin. I can still smell this softly on my wrist the next day. The scent has a cosy warm quality about it and therefore makes this more wearable in the Fall/Winter months. This is perfect for date nights, special occasions or even suitable for working in the office. The bottle is simple but classy! Overall, love it! Well done D&G!
Liquid -La Prairie - Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF15
MyMajesty 10/2/2012 7:47:00 AM
Hello ladies, I am a huge La Prairie Skin Caviar Fdt and yes, I would buy this again. =) What I like is that it stays on a lot of time and even after a few hours, you look like you've just made up your face. Secondly, the ingredients are a huge hit too! Just imagine that the caviar is actually working while you're wearing makeup, which is great because it has some very good anti-aging properties which are welcomed at any age. This foundation doesn't break me out (and I am very prone to this) or make me look oily. I use to set this with Chantecaille Loose Powder; the combination is good - they work well together, but I'm really looking forward to buying La Prairie's loose Powder too. A LP SA told me that it's better (when it comes to cellular and caviar treatments) when the products are from the same line, because they actually work together. The consistency of the fdt is quite thick, so a little will definitely go a long way. You just need to put a very small amount on your face; avoid putting to much, otherwise you'll look like you're wearing a funny mask! I have it since April 2012 and more than 3/4 is left. I also appreciate the packaging, the little sponge it comes with it, the metallic support that also has a mirror in it and the small brush for the concealer. The foundation is expensive (mine cost 150 euros and was bought from Amsterdam's duty free) but well worth the money; your skin really deserves the best so it's worth paying for something it's that good. Enough speaking! =) Overall, La Prairie products are awesome if you can afford them.
Concealers -Kevyn Aucoin - The Sensual Skin Enhancer

I am so sorry I have to say this, but this concealer is a totally miss for me. I was very enthusiastic to try this "baby", I paied a lot of money for it and it was a huge dissapointment. First of all: yes, it covers very well but the effect is very unnatural and it cakes through the day. It also sets into fine lines and pores, which is awful! Can I also say that it broke me out like crazy? I have patches on my face where I never ever broked out in my whole life. Well, after applying this stupid product, the next day my forehead was full of tiny whiteheads. I am so sorry Kevyn..., but I will stick to my beloved MUFE Full Cover Concealer which is way way waaaay better!
This is a very nice floral fragrance, very suitable for those cold months IMO. It's intoxicating and it cam be overwhelming in sprayed too much. I like it because it lasts a lot, even after washing my neck/wrist/clothes. For those who were saying that this has no lasting power...I donno...maybe you've bought a fake?! Mine lasts forever.
I think La mer is soooo overpriced and it doesn't worth the money! This eye treatment has nothing special. I don't see any improvements on my eye area and I was expecting some, considering the price I've paid. I think you can buy something way better paying less. I would not repurchase and I suggest you think twice before investing a fortune.
Fragrances -Narciso Rodriguez - Narciso Rodriguez for her EDP
MyMajesty 5/31/2012 7:01:00 AM
Great fragrance! I love it! Everybody compliments me each time I use this. It also has a very good lasting power. 5 starts +
Funny! by Moschino is the perfect scent for those hot spring/summer days. It's very citrusy, green and pleasant, not heavy at all. Its lasting power is average, considering that it's an EDT. I think Funny! is a nicer alternative to Light Blue by D&G which became so common and blah. Yes, I will repurchase, it's a clean summer scent.
Treatments (Eye) -Kanebo - Sensai Premiere The Eye Cream
MyMajesty 5/3/2012 6:55:00 AM
I agree with the reviews below... this eye cream is very strange. It's like the ordinary vaseline, the only thing is that you put it on the eye area. It's sticky and I can hardly tolerate it. I will only use it at night time, it's impossible to wear it every day. The price is ridiculous and it's just not worth the money,. Sorry Sensai, but your Premier The Eye cream is pure Vaseline sold at a ridiculous price! Shame!
Treatments (Eye) -La Prairie - Eye Cream Platinum Rare
MyMajesty 4/29/2012 2:25:00 PM
I like this eye treatmeant quite much. The consistency is like silk and it really adds the exact amount of moisture my very sensitive eye area needs. I am really not sure what this "rare platinum" is supposed to do for my skin, but overall this is a decent eye cream. What I don't like a lot is the price (but who does?). I think La Prairie is a truly leader when it comes to products you put on your skin, but even though, this tiny little jar is way too expensive! Another thing I dislike are the invisible platinum iridiscents that this cream has in it. Yes, they do make your skin brighter, but there is too much shimmery stuff in there, IMO. But well...it's the rare platinum thing! If you're curious to find out how a luxury eye treatment works out, you should try out this one. It's a good eye cream but be aware! It will cost you a fortune!
Fragrances -Giorgio Armani - Emporio Armani Diamonds
MyMajesty 3/27/2012 7:30:00 AM
Would I buy this again? YES YES YES! I totally love it. I like the fact that it's a bit bitter mixed with fresh notes and musk - perfect combination! It is in my top 5 faves and I will keep buying this again and again. You're probably wondering why I gave it just 4 lippies. Well, because it does not last a lot (I am talking about the EDT version). The staying power is between 3 and 4 hours which is not a lot IMO. I love it so much and I would like to feel it on me all day long.
Lipstick -MAC - Sheen Supreme Lipstick - Blossom Culture
MyMajesty 3/14/2012 5:53:00 AM
Along with MAC Sheen Supreme Supreme Syle, Blossom Culture is my favorite shade from MAC. The color is not too bold, nor too light...it is a fabulous shade of pink with a hint of coral, perfect for warm, sunny days. The texture is also very nice, it reminds me a lot of MAC discontinued Slimshine lipsticks. I like Sheen Supreme more than the regular MAC l/s, because I find it more moisturizing. Plus, it has a very nice glow. Overall, I can find only pros and I will definitely buy it again when I'll finish this,
I really don't understand all these bad reviews...honestly! Fan di Fendi is one of the most beautiful fragrances out there, it has something very sexy & naughty in it. I agree this is not a very unique smell, but I wonder: considering that are so many perfumes out there, how can something be so unique? There are many fragrances alike, there are many fragrances that have common notes so I really think that nothing can be that unique. Fan di Fendi reminds me a lot of Fendi Palazzo which was a great perfume, but I think it got discontinued for some reasons. Overall, I love this, even though I am not a fan of floral fruity fragrances, I think it became my favorite fragrance of all. I already ordered a backup.
Liquid -Giorgio Armani - Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF20
MyMajesty 6/28/2011 6:21:00 AM
I am very impressed with this designer foundation! I've never imagined that GA has such a wonderful m/u line. I've bought like 2 weeks ago this magnificent foundation and I am very impressed. It goes on like silk (the name doesn't lie you) and it lasts almost all day long. I like it very-very much but even though, I can't decide if it's a HG or not. It competes with Estee Lauder Double Wear. The difference between it is that EL DW has a medium to full coverage and GA Lasting Silk is more on the natural side. I would wear GA LS in hot summer days or during day time , while EL DW would be very nice for nights out, in an artificial light. Anyway, I'd buy this again; it's a good investment and even though it's expensive, I love it and I am truly convinced that it worth the money.
Oh my, oh my, what a fragrance! I've received a sample that came with an Estee Lauder order and I am hooked! I've never smelled any Estee Lauder fragrance before and I was always avoiding it. I've always thought Estee Lauder has a good skincare/makeup line and that's it. After smelling Sensuous, I knew I had to have it. It is such a warm and feminine fragrance, I was expecting something heavy and unpleasant [since it's oriental woody], but..no! Sensuous is a really sexy and feminine scent for the upcoming spring and summer season! It opens with a little sharp pure white florals and an exotic hint of sweet powdery magnolia but very quick woods and precious luxury amber are fading in and soften down the florals to a rich and alluring heartnote. the best is the drydown: the juicy-foody mandarine accord waves over creamy sandalwood and sweet and lovely honeytrails with just a pinch of pepper... hmmm delicious! <3
