As a makeup artist, I love this product, I think it makes it easy for anyone to contour. I don't need the shades because I have them in eye shadows and what not (you can use this as eyeshadow too if you want!) but it's nice to have all the colors together, and the brush is good. I would advise to start contouring lightly, you can always build up the intensity, better to start with less than to overdo it!

Love love love! I use this every day! It makes my scalp feel nice and healthy, and I think it has helped my hair grow a bit faster too! HG I always buy this when I run out, it's amazing and I've never found anything like it. Has a nice smell too like most Aveda products!
Is it just me or does this smell almost exactly like Princess? Unimaginative.

For a celebrity fragrance, this isn't too bad. it's a fruity floral that has some vanilla. Overall it's pleasing and not too young like I thought it would be. It does smell a bit like Fantasy by Britney Spears, which is one of Taylor's favorite fragrances.
I find this to be really synthetic and not appealing. It's too sweet and seems to fade easily.

Love love love this brush! I can use it with my powder or liquid foundation. It gives a really polished, great HD, photo finish look. It is small but so good!
This is one of my favorite fragrances ever, and definitely one of Dior's best. I like this original version the best. It is spicy and sweet, and very sexy. It very potent, so use sparingly. It dries down to a beautiful scent, and has some interesting notes. There are 4 different versions of Dior Addict, but this to me is the best one, the rest are quite tame and more floral. This has a floral heart but it has a strong vanilla scent to it. I love love love this one. Hope they never discontinue it! Very sensual.
This really is one of Dior's best fragrances. It is a bit harder to find now but it is worth it. It was launched in 1995. It is a bit powdery but has a nice vanilla base. It is sweet but not overly so. For an EDT, it is pretty strong and lasts long. I really love this scent. I think it's only available in a 100mL now but it is worth it. So beautiful. It has a bit of spice to it as well. The floral notes I pick up on are magnolia and rose. There is definitely cinnamon, vanilla, peach as well, and other notes of course.
I love this shower gel for many reasons. 1) it doesn't make my skin dry like others do, it actually makes my skin feel moisturized! 2) the heavenly smell - makes me feel all fresh and invigorated 3) price/value - 400 mL for $22 so worth it
Makeup Brushes -Lancome - Mineral Powder Foundation Brush

One of my favorite brushes! It is SO soft and wonderful. I can get a nice finish using this brush, and it isn't itchy or dry like others. Love love love!
Mineral makeup has been the craze lately. I'm not a huge fan but I've tried a few. I like this one from Lancome. It blends nicely and gives a radiant finish! It looks awesome! Especially if you use it with their oh so soft Mineral Powder Brush. I like the coverage, it looks natural but skin looks better with it!
This is a nice mature scent. It's interesting, it is warmer but has a nice fruitiness and floral side too. It is bitter and sweet, making for an interesting combination of notes including white and yellow flowers, but a nice vanilla note too.
Lancome is known for having some really great oriental/woody/spicy scents like Hypnose, Magie Noire, Poeme, Magnifique, Tresor, etc. This is a nice fruity floral that is PERFECT for summer or warmer months. It is interesting and unoffensive. It also has a bit of citrus too it! It is affordable too only $54 CDN for 75 ML.
This is an older scent, but it doesn't have that "dated" smell to me. It is very fresh and lovely. If you like a "green" scent, this is for you! It's very citrusy but there's a floral heart to it as well.
I think this is a really underrated scent. It seems simple, but it's elegant. It is very floral but there's a hint of citrus too.
