This sucked. It's much to harsh to actually use on the face, and it has way too much fragrance whether it's natural or not. It's fine as a hand scrub, but that's all I'd use it for.
This is a really nice, sheer lipstick! I got it in a swap, and was first a little intimidated by how dark this look, but it goes on shiny and glossy and is really pretty. Color is a brown-red, very good for a redhead like myself. It has the same mandarin-vanilla scent as all Bloom lip products, and frankly, that's enough for me to love them :)
I adore these lipsticks! I have Foxglove (nude), Angeltrumpet (pink shimmer) and Nightshade, and I really love all three. They are all sheer and go on shiny and glossy. They last fairly well. Best of all - I adore the cinnamon-minty tingle! :)
This is a really nice exotic floral. It's heavy on the jasmine and what I think is tuberose, and it smells very warm and summery. I like to wear this and think of better weather. :)
Mascara -Guerlain - Divinora mascara in Brun Reflets

This is a lovely mascara! It makes my lashes look long and full, and wonderfully separated. It doesn't clump or smudge at all, but what I love most about it: the color. This is a warm plummy brown with copper shimmer, and it really looks different from many other mascaras I have tried. The packaging is like the rest of the Divinora line - a little gaudy to some perhaps, but I find them rather lovely. :)
Ok - I'm officially disappointed. This did not at all do what I wanted. First of all - I don't get the micro part. Ok, the pencil is thinner than regular pencils, sure. But the COLOR PART is NOT! :) It's indeed much the same size as my regular liners. A little thinner, but not by much. Secondly, I don't know if it's my apartment being very warm or something, but when I started drawing a line with this, instead of a smooth thin line, I got a big smudgy soft line! Which is fine, but NOT what I expected from this. Half the tip wore down from one application, and I had to sharpen it. Weird, very weird. The color however is gorgeous - it's a blueish dark plum that looks a lot like Bobbi Brown Violet Gel liner but without the shimmer. Very pretty!
This is a really pretty, and wearable, orange for spring. It's orange allright, but it has pink tones and is thus rather neutral undertone-wise. It has gold shimmer which makes it all the more forgiving, and in general, it should fit a variety of looks. I like using it with a pink-and-orange eye, and MAC Style blush.
I am so impressed by this little pretty fragrance! This is truly what I wanted for spring, and I can't imagine a fresher floral. I don't generally wear florals at all, but this is a nice change. I like that it has actual floral notes, instead of something that just ends up as a synthetic blend. Here, I can distinctly smell (even though I have the flu!) violets, lilac, hyacinth and lily-of-the-valley. I'm in love! :)
This is wonderful! WONDERFUL! I have a nagging suspicion that this entire line is discontinued - it figures. If you can still find this - buy it. This is the perfect lipliner for summer. The color is a very light peachy-pink with shimmer - JUST the thing to wear with those light shimmery glosses! It also looks really good on it's own - and as a bonus: it's moisturizing. I can't rave enough about this - this is truly a new staple for me :)
This is the one cream color base I really like. It's absolutely useless as an eye color, partly because all of the cream color bases crease like crazy, but partly because of the deep red color. :) It's a warm coppery red which makes it excellent as a lip color. It's rather dry which makes it last well, but I usually wear it over a lip balm. Very nice! I doubt I'll buy it again, but mostly because there's no chance of ever finishing this up.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lip Gloss in Destiny

Oh - this is great! I just got it in a swap and I love it. The texture is very much like Chanel glossimer in Sirop. Color is a little deeper - it looks like a fairly strong purple in the tube, but it's a gorgeous rosey pink on my lips, no shimmer. Packaging is a little boring, but the scent is great - very fruity. I like this a lot.
This is very yummy for when I'm in a tropical mood, but while it's nice, it's also a little bit sharp. I have the lotion as well as the spray, and I like using the lotion on my feet - otherwise it's a bit overpowering.
Treatments (Eye) -Peter Thomas Roth - Oxygen Eye Relief

This is fairly nice, but not really anything special. I have been using it on and off and while it feels nice, I can't really say that it has made any improvements. I'm not crazy about having it in pot form - I much prefer creams in tubes.
I love this! This is definitely my favorite lipbalm, ever. It has a great minty smell, and it's not shiny which makes it perfect for wearing under lipsticks or glosses. Definitely a staple.
This didn't work very well for me. I have combo skin, breakout prone but not very oily. This was too powdery for me, and looked very noticable and fake. Not what I was hoping for. :/
