Fragrances -Givenchy - Very Irresistible Sensual eau de parfum
spikester 4/22/2009 11:36:00 PM
This is such a beautiful fragrance. I like it much better than the original "Very Irresistible", That one was too strong. This one is much lighter but still has great sillage and staying power. It is a soft, romantic scent.
I love this fragrance. It is a spicy floral. It has just the right blend too. Not too spicy and not too floral. It also has superb staying power and nice sillage.
I'm going against the trend here but I didn't like this blush. It is very pretty color in the pan but on my skin, it is too peachy/orangy. It doesn't look natural at all. It also seems to sit on the skin and it looks like you have makeup on. It is very pigmented and it is hard to just get a little so that it looks natural. I ended up returning it.
I was really on the fence about this fragrance so I decided to wear it to work. Within minutes, two co-workers started asking what smelled like moth balls. Since there really wasn't anything else that may have smelled like moth balls, I decided it must be this perfume. So, now I know what people mean when they describe a fragrance as "old lady" or "musty". Needless to say, I won't be wearing this again.
This is my new favorite. I smelled it on a co-worker and fell in love with it. Every times she walked by, I got a whiff of the most beautiful fragrance. But, it wasn't over powering or strong at all. I ran out and bought it right away. I would say it is definitely more "angel" than "demon" but it has a slight edge to it so I think the name is perfect. It also has fantastic staying power. It lingers all day in a beautiful, subtle way.
This is the best shampoo around for color treated hair. Your hair color will not fade at all with this shampoo. I have tried so many other shampoos for color treated hair and had problems with fading with all of them. Not with this one! Plus, it doesn't weigh your hair down and cleans, moisturizes very well.
Major headache alert. This stuff gave me the worst headache and I can usually handle any fragrance. I sampled a little bit in the store and even that small amount gave me a massive headache for the rest of the day. This is a very strong, cloying, 80's smelling fragrance. I will never put this stuff on again.
Fragrances -Donna Karan - Be Delicious Fresh Blossom EDP

This is a beautiful scent. I love all the DKNY Delicious scents (except the night one) and was so excited to see a new one come out. Ulta didn't have a tester and I bought it untested. That is how much I love the Delicious line. When I came home and sprayed it, I was delighted. It is very soft and floral with a citrus note to it. Very soft, but seems like it will have very good staying power. I am very glad I purchased it.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin

This holds your eye shadow very well just like the original but it was too shimmery for me. It didn't look right at all during daytime. It would be an option for nighttime but you can get the same effect by using the original with shimmer shadow over it. Not worth buying both of them. I'll stick with the original
I love this fragrance! It is fruity but also spicy at the same time. It is strong so I think of it more as an evening fragrance. It has great sillage and staying power. I could even smell it the next morning. I really like that it isn't instantly recognizable. I don't like it when people say "Oh, you're wearing xyz". I like more unusual, hard to recognize scents.
Fragrances -Lavanila - Vanilla Lavender - HEALTHY FRAGRANCE

I love the LaVanila line but really didn't like this one. It smells more like a room fragrance or a laundry fragrance. It is also very faint. I could barely smell it on me. Doesn't seem worth the price at all. Will be returning it.
This is great, sheer powder that looks so natural. It absorbs oil and makes any lines look like they don't exist! I have the medium shade which is a perfect match. This is the best powder I have found. Revlon certainly makes outstanding products in my opinion. Just as good as any department store brand (and I have tried them all!)
This is a gorgeous color and a very high quality blush. It is just as good as department store blushes. In fact I think it is better. It has a beautiful natural color that makes your face come alive. It isn't overly shimmery too which I like. Too much shimmer just looks unnatural. Love this blush!
I know I'm bucking the trend on this one but this blush duo didn't work at all for me. The Laguna bronzer looks muddy on me and the Orgasm blush looks orangy. I have fair skin and think these may be better suited for medium to dark complexions. I thought it looked very unnatural on me. However, if you have darker skin, then this may look very nice.
This is one of the most beautiful, unusual scents out there. It really works superb with my chemistry. I think most of the negative reviews are for people that it didn't work with their chemistry. Because if it does, you will love it. It has a gorgeous dry down and really lingers. I love perfume that doesn't disappear after 30 minutes and this one does not disappoint.
