Classy, seductive, special. I really love this perfume, especially in winter. Excelent composition - a bit retro, but in a good way. Lasts very long.
Treatments (Eye) -Garnier - Garnier Stop anti-aging eye contour cream
winterfairy 10/21/2008 6:27:00 AM
There is nothing about it which makes it stand out from other eye products... I like it's pakacge though and that you can squeeye just the right amount of prduct. But I haven't noticed any difference in my skin since using it (and I don't have specific needs in that area, my ideal cream needs to do just a moisturizing job), so I'll try something else.
Moisturizers -Garnier - Fresh Quenching Moisturising Fluid

I remember using this a few years ago... Average moisturizer for skin with no specific needs.
Moisturizers -Garnier - Garnier Pure moisturiser (oil control)
winterfairy 10/21/2008 6:12:00 AM
I used this for few years, but I stopped after I turned 27 because I belive it's suitable for younger skin. I used 3-4 tubes and I was very sattisfied - my skin was perfectly matte and clean. But you need to take a break between tubes because that much zinc can produce extra oil if you use it too often and too much. If I'll ever be 20 again (lol), I'll definitely buy it again, but because I doubt it, It's on my not again list...
Styling Products -Garnier - FRUCTIS Sleek and Shine - Leave-in Conditioning Cream

Great leave-in cionditioner for fuzzy hair. It will make your hair feel smooth and sleek. Smells beautiful - like some exotic fruit. Won't buy again because of animal-testing
This blush is good, very pigmented and matte. You have to be careful because danger of overapplying is always present, so as the danger of underapplying. Brush is quite ok, but you'll do the better job with big brush.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Shiny-Licious - ALL colors
winterfairy 10/21/2008 5:08:00 AM
Good smell, but it tastes and feels a bit waxy. The feel was pretty sticky and thick. Staying power- I guess average for a lipgloss. But I'm definitely more of a lipstick girl and I won't buy it again.
No infinity in here... Starts chipping afer a day. Too soft top coat, so easy to wrinkle and scratch.
If you don't have dry lips, this is an ideal lipstick. Really lasts and lasts, I use top shiny coat only in the morning (I never remember to reapply during the day) and the colour is still there in the late afternoon. Eating-resistent, drinking-resistent and kissproof:-) I use it more than a year 3-4 times a week and I haven't noticed any negative effects on my lips. Won't buy again beacuse of animal-testing
Mascara -L'Oreal - Volume Shocking Mascara [DISCONTINUED]
winterfairy 10/21/2008 4:15:00 AM
Until you find out how to use it properly, this is realy horror mascara with horror effects on your face. But once you do, you'll find out that it really gives your lashes a shocking volume. Good lasting power, no clumps, no spider-eyes and easy to take off with any make-up remover. Won't buy again because of animal-testing
First I thought it's ok. Then I started to like it a bit more. And now I adore Eden! It's so special, unusual, has great aura and great longevity. I see this perfume on Arwen or Galladriel from Lord of the rings...
Misc Beauty Tools -Avon - Magic Matte Oil Absorbing Films
winterfairy 10/20/2008 6:52:00 AM
Very good blotting papers. Blue colored, gummy structure. Great absorbing power, so great that I used half of it for entire face (for example, I need 3 Bourjois sheets to do the same job). I recommend and I'll buy it again (if I find it).
Scrubs -Avon - Planet Spa White Tea Cleansing Face Polisher
winterfairy 10/20/2008 6:28:00 AM
Nice gentle scrub, but nothing special. Doing fine exfoliating job without irritating the skin.
I gave it away because after few weeks of using some note started to bother me. But this is a good perfume - nice staying power and interesting composition - salt and coconut. Would buy it as a gift, but not for myself
Nice and very fresh but too lemony and too synthetic... Average staying power. Somehow boring after a while.
