This starts with a promise of incense and dark wood and then turns into a head ache inducing potion. This is one of the biggest dissapointments I have had in a long time , perfume wise. How can this be related to lovely Flower Le Perfum? I just don't know how to describe this perfume as it evolves into something that I can only compare to stale perfum, oxide comes to my mind, ammonia ? I tried it on my arm directly thinking I was going to love it and what a mistake. It has been nearly impossible to rub it off. I ended up with a huge headache. Beware this is nothing like beloved Flower Le Perfum.
I love love love ...did I say love? this lipstick =P. This was love at first use. This should be called luxurious or something along those lines. This is a shimmery (not in your face frost) light beigy nude that enhances your own natural lip color plus gives you a luxurious shimmer. this looks great with bold eye makeup *hint* parrot, smokey eye, bronzed goddess look..you follow me?
I tried this today with the new D'Boheme lipgloss Flash of Flesh and WOW...I received so many compliments. It is an apricot/orangy color. I think this looks great with a nude/peachy lipgloss on top.
Fragrances -Yves Saint Laurent - Opium Fleur de Shanghai

I am not a fan of YSL fragrances and never liked OPIUM. But last Saturday I went to Neiman Marcus and happened to go by the YSL counter and the bottle somehow got my attention..I sprayed a bit on my wrist and went home. Well...the rest of day I would sniff my wrist...Opium Fleurs de Shanghai smells somewhat like MUST de Cartier but much much softer, subtle..not as overpowering...I reccomend this one to those who want to use an Oriental fragrance but just never found one that was soft enough. Needless to say by Monday I was the proud owner of a Fleurs de Shanghai bottle...ah and the price: only $50.00 A winner.
Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Restorative Night Hand Creme

WOW!!!! After trying every hand cream in the market I finally found one that really works. I put this on at nigth before bed time and have been using it for almost 2 weeks now and my hands are absolutely gorgeous!! soft supple sking beautiful color I am very happy. I hate oily hand creams and this one seems to sink rigth in so I don't get that sweaty hand feeling. Smells relaxing too. I now need to find a good day hand cream with spf protection =). I highly reccomend this cream.
I used this product today, and I immediately felt the results. Yes, it makes the hair feel so sof and shiny and feels like it makes it stronger. Expensive but worth it. Will I buy again...oh yes!
Lip Treatments -Prada - Tinted Shielding Balm spf 15
LABRUJACLAUDIA 12/4/2004 6:16:00 PM
This is my new HG lipbalm. (previous one was La Mer lipbalm & Khiels). This actually stays on, I use it every evening before I go to bed and they do seem to last. They are also great for daytime as they have spf 15 and they have a beautiful sheen. I also love the packaging, cute and chic. Highly reccomended.
This is horrible. I swapped for this and I did not even have to open the bottle or box...the whole package reeked of this horrible perfum. I was sitting in a back room in my office when I opened the package and I immediately got a headache..and like I said before..I did not even open the package. Then my assistant walks into the room and starts talking to me and she suddenly gets a headache too..The only thing I can say is: try it before you buy it.
I just received my bottle a few days ago and I absolutely LOVE this perfum. It is so femenine. It is sweet but not in your face sweet. I am not good at describing perfumes but I think this is like a subtle combination of violet & rose..very subtle. I love it love it love it!!!!
This is the most horrendous perfum I ever smelled...OH MY GOD!!! I didn't know how to wash it off. It smells like a combiantion of human sweat and food spices HORRIBLE. I got the most horrendous headache and I rubbed alcohol, washed my arm 3 times and finally had to sleep with my arm buried under my pillow so I would not smell this. PLEASE try a sample before you buy!!! I did!!
I love this!!! This is a great everyday fragrance. It smells soft and sweet to me a bit flowery. But I am bad at describing fragrances. I deducted 2 lippies. 1 for being so expensive for a frangrance that is nothing remarkable but just fresh smelling and the other lippie for the ugly packaging..for the amount they charge for this fragrance they could at least make a nicer bottle. This is in the splash category for me.
I just received my bottle today from Aedes.com and wow...wow...wow...this is the softest most feminine fine vanilla fragrance I ever smelled..I finally found my HG vanille parfum.
Hmmm spicy, sweet, sexy, dark, vanilla, cloves, smells like a bad girl parfum. This one is one to just dab a bit in your hair for a sexy nigth with hubby and shag girl shag the night away lol.
I was really looking forward to trying this fragrance..purchased my bottle in Luckyscent.com and just received it today: 3:00pm ..tried it and .... ....the only way I can describe it is: sickeningly sweet..too sweet...very sweet..if only they had done this a bit ligther maybe it would be better. I run to the shower and took a bath..and this is so strong that I could still smell it..11:45pm just before going to bed I decide to just try a little tiny bit on my wrist...few minutes later..I am starting to get a headache..I really want to like this, it has all the notes I look for in a parfum: vanilla, almond..I read it had roses (I don't smell the roses) maybe that is what is missing..I really want to like it but..
This is the best lip tint I have ever tried. I have tried almost every lip tint out there including Benefit's but this is by far the best..why? ok here it goes: natural colors, non-drying, does not set in lip lines, gorgeous package, super easy to use, not messy, long lasting, looks great with clear lip gloss. I have the mandarin color but I am on my way to purchase 1 of the pinkish colors too. By the way, the mandarin is not orange at all, it is the closest natural just bitten lip color.
