I can't understand any fashion label would permit this shitty cat's pee in a bottle be thought of as the signature scent of the house...plus its total lack of personality. I'd rather smell of BO than wear this.
The colour range is very original, and the staying power is very, very good, however I didn't find this lipstick moisturising whatsoever...
I got it as a gift, but it really is a bit of a joke...wonderfully black, a truly black black mascara, but it doesn't lenghten or thicken or curl or do anything except tint my lashes...and unfortunately it smudges all over and is a NIGHTMARE to take off...
I got 5 coloured eye pencils from a limited edition a year and a half ago...It's the only eye pencils that I keep going back to, they've all been used and everybody I've tried them on WANTS them...they colour well, are easy to blend and can give both a subtle or a dramatic look. They are incredibly easy to use. The golden one is brilliant, superior to any other gold eye pencil I've tried (they always look SO artificial). The white one is a total eyeopener, and can be worn with no makeup at all. The blue and purple ones are so flattering...can't get enough of them. If I obly I could get my hands on another wee box of these...(they were a limited ed...)
I'm using this today for the first time...I need an uplifting scent to give me confidence for an exam coming up...so far I feel much more energetic than usual. It's fresh, but has a cinamon sort of something that gives it an edge...also it's not an eau de cologne, or a perfume or ...I don't know, it's altogether quite different...
Better than the YSL one, which says a lot if not all.
I couldn't resist the dirt cheap price when I saw this in a USA supermarket and...whaaaaauuuu it doesn lenghten your lashes. Even my hypershort almost unexisting lashes. I never ever buy "just" lenghtening mascaras because I feel they are still invisible after applying the product, but this one truly does what it says, so it's great for a natural look for me. I'll keep on using my volumising V2 by red earth and YSL for more vavavoom, but this is definitely good enough. Doesn't clump, EVER and only flaked once, but I've forgiven her because it was after an 8 hour flight. Love it!
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

It takes off even my mascara in one go and I actually love the smell, the only thing is that I'm through half a bottle in a couple of weeks, so it doesn't work out to be as cheap as it seems. I also think you need to keep up with the exfoliating if you use this, I suppose that would prevent the breakouts. I'm missing my Artistry clear scrub up thingy with salicilic acid, which is a great cleanser, but this will stay on as my make up remover for sure.
This is amazing. I trusted my instinct and went for the palest shade ( I always get sucked into buying a tone darker than my natural one and end up feeling like a bronze statuette). It's not dewy at all on me. It evens out my complexion and gives me a natural finish, it doesn't look like I'm wearing anything. The smell doesn't bother me at all, it's quite neutral smelling to me, and it's very soft and unlike other tinted moisturisers, it's not problem if you pile it on...The SPF works through out the day, for sure, I always burn, even in clowdy weather if I don't wear SPF 15...I have combination skin and work in very dehydrating conditions, but it seems to work even now, when I'm on holidays...I'm a bit surprised is not getting better reviews. This is MUCH better than Cliniques tinted city block and Bad Gal's by Benefit.
I think canadian make up is just the BEST for achieving a natural look. This is utterly EASY to wear. I'm not surprised is getting rave reviews, and it's amazing it works on every skin tone...I am very pale, and most blushers wash me down, this one is different. The texture is so creamy too...better than mac's ( too powdery).
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Olive Oil as Serum for Hair

I use olive oil as a hair mask, once in a while. The best results I get is when I leave it on the longest. My dry hair just sucks it up, I sleep with an old towel on top of the pillow not to make a mess and wash with shampoo only (no conditioner) twice in the AM. That's when my hair looks best. I admit is a bit of a mess, but it's worth it. Everybody can see the difference.
Cleansers -Jo Malone - crisp camphor cleansing cream
marie66 3/10/2006 5:06:00 PM
I love it, it leaves your skin feeling fresh and cleansed, but I also feel taken for a ride...it's exactely the same thing as Noxcema (is that the way to spell it? ) a dirt cheap cleanser I used to get as a teenager in the states, for something like three dollars the 500ml tube...

I'm so sad I have the worst break out from the last two years that I might not sound too objective, but I did think this was totally unefficient and crap...
Lip Gloss -Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Brillance Spakling Touch

Very pretty, I love the smell and the vanilla taste of it, very very misturising, your lips will never go dry on this. It's original too, the sparkle is more noticeable than others, it has some texture to it and it lasts more than other glosses. Lovely stuff.
Well, sad but true, I am actually going to buy this at some point. The reason being, a sample fell into my hands and the four acne scars that shere STILL visible in my chin after using creme de la mer religiously for four months have almost gone, overnight. Appart from that, it actually smells like it's rich in botanical and not marine stracts, it's really lovely and refreshing, smells more like Sisley stuff than creme de la mer. The price is so totally ridiculous I don't know how to afford it, but I love this thing.
