I am so in love with this fragrance that I feel as if it could become a signature scent,something I never even thought possible. This scent is heart breakingly beautiful. It opens with a blast of white flowers and a tart rhubarb note that adds a fresh green note.The florals here are creamy,natural and luscious. There is a water note woven throughout the scent that adds to the realism of the florals.The amber in the drydown adds warmth and a sultry tropical feel that is just stunning. Sillage is very good and I spray once on the nape of the neck and hair.The scent lasts well over 24 hours. I dismissed this scent when I first wore it but by the third wearing, I was head over heals in love.The bottle is gorgeous too but the scents' beauty has completely stolen my heart from the rest of my collection.
I love this haircolor. It is easy to apply, doesn't make a mess and doesn't have a bad smell to it. I have used 3N deep brown-black for several months now and it is a rich,shiny neutral very dark brown. It hardly fades at all, even after 6 weeks,it still looks good. I leave it on the full 30 minutes and I do find that it covers very evenly.I will definately keep repurchasing. Edit: Still loving this haircolor. I recently tried a new shade 4PBN -Dark Cool Expresso Brown- it came out a lovely deep chocolate brown minus any of the black tones that are in 3N. It's also a tad lighter than 3N. Just thought I'd add this as it's a new shade and some people have mentioned they found 3N too dark. Personally, I really love both colors and hope they never discontinue this product.
Mascara -Nuance by Salma Hayek - Ultra Defining Mascara

I actually love this mascara. The little brush gets every lash and gives wonderful length with no clumping or flakes. Two coats will give you plenty of volume if you are looking for thicker lashes. It's a nice dark glossy black too. I will definately be buying this again.
I agree with the pastel Barbie comments. I have light,warm toned skin and this color was awful on me. I actually love the lipstick formula which is sheer but with good color pay off. I have the colors My Favorite and Paprika and wear them all the time but the coral was a complete no go for me.

I have this in light/medium which is a warm based shade. This tinted moisturizer is fantastic! It gives more coverage than most tinted moisturizers and it leaves a nice dewy finish.
Lotions/ Creams -Nuance by Salma Hayek - My secret super moisturizing body cream
Kimberlygem 11/22/2012 3:33:00 PM
I love this body cream but you must apply it while your skin is still damp from the bath or shower. It is so moisturizing and has given me the softest skin I've had in a long time.

I have really grown to love this scent. It is perfect in the heat, so sheer and lovely(no pun intended).It's a soft hazy floral that seems to waft around you in the most beautiful way. I bought a back up already because I've been wearing it so much.
This scent is drag queen in a bottle right down to the bottle cap that resembles a vinyl rendition of lady bits.
Hair -Sacha Cosmetics - Sally - Hair One Hair Cleanser and Conditioner
Kimberlygem 6/27/2009 4:31:00 AM
This product was terrible for long hair. It left my hair a snarled mess and I spent at least 25 minutes combing out knots everytime I used it.I also had to use so much more Hair One than Wen. It left my hair a lot drier in the ends and my scalp started itching too. I will say that it cleansed my hair well and I think it's fine for shorter hair but if you have long hair or hair that snarls easy, I would say go ahead and splurge on the real Wen.I tried both the Olive Oil and the Jojoba.
Shampoo -Wen by Chaz Dean - Cleansing Conditioners - All

I love Wen CC. I think the key to using this product successfully is to make sure that you add enough water to it when you are mixing it up on your head. If you don't use enough water, it can make your roots oily or leave build up but if you get the Wen nice and slippery wet in the hair,it will cleanse superbly. I have fine,long hair and I can actually use all the different formulas as long as I add enough water. This product has made my hair look and feel amazing. The Tea Tree version also helped clear up some flaky, dry patches on my 9 yr olds scalp.
Conditioner -Wen by Chaz Dean - Fig Cleansing Conditioner
Kimberlygem 6/27/2009 4:14:00 AM
I absolutely love this product. It is amazing! I have very fine long hair that would snarl terribly and the ends were always dry. After using Wen for the first time, I easily combed through my hair and it was shiny and moisturized. I've been using Wen exclusively for 3 months now (except for a brief 5 day fling with Hair One that ended badly) and my hair has never looked better. No split ends, no frizz and so much shine that it is unbelievable. I can't imagine going back to shampoo and conditioner ever again. I also like the Lavender and SAM but I love the Fig, especially as a leave in conditioner.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Bourbon French Parfums FRANGIPANE
Kimberlygem 6/25/2008 1:15:00 PM
The Frangipani from this line is like the flower when it first opens. It's pale petals with a green stem and a slightly bitter waxiness that reminds you of the creamy insides of the flower.It is the bloom at mornings first glow as it opens to the sun. If you are looking for the lush , tropical flower, you will have to try Bourbon French's Plumeria which is the scent of the mature flowers.I only wear parfum from Bourbon French as I find that it has the truest scent.Something that they use in their edp and cologne seems to distort the scent and I never like those versions as well as the parfum.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Bourbon French - Eleftorea
Kimberlygem 6/25/2008 1:07:00 PM
I love Eleftorea. It's a perfume with sparkling citrus and kiwi. It has an opening that is somewhat reminiscent of a Cologne Bigarade but as it dries down it develops that powdery edge that most Bourbon French perfumes have.The citrus in this is more fruit than pith and has no bitterness but instead has a slight sweetness that isn't overwelming and the scent never gets too fruity. I have this scent in powder as well and it is just as nice as the parfum.I only wear parfum from Bourbon French as I find that it has the truest scent.Something that they use in their edp and cologne seems to distort the scent and I never like those versions as well as the parfum.
This is one of my favorite lippies. Also looks great just lightly blotted on and then went over with a glossy lip balm like Bare Escentuals Soy Mocha which is colorless but makes the Milani very sheer and fresh. I wear Rose Fetish as full coverage without the Soy Mocha when I want a more finished look. Gorgeous color and you just can't beat the price.

This is gorgeous! I feel this one could reach HG status though not such a good thing considering the price. Can't really justify two bottles of the stuff. Anyway, I digress. I agree completely with Pascats review. Lovely just doesn't begin to describe this.
