Lip Treatments -Alba Botanica - Coconut Cream Lip Balm

Purchased this on a whim from my local health food store... and I love Love LOVE it! I had one of those dry cracks in the corner of your mouth that re-opens every time you take a big bite, so you have to lick it to keep it from splitting, which makes it worse... ugh! Anyway, I slathered this on the crack and ahhh... it felt better right away. Then I took a long nap (3 hours). When I woke up the skin had knit and was healed completely by the next day. Besides that, it's an awesome, soothing and moisturizing daily balm. My HG for life!
Love reminds me of my husband, whose scent I am absolutely infatuated with. A hint of incredibly sexy musk under the fresh, clean scent of his clothes after the two have mingled together during the course of the day. I can't keep my nose away from either!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess

I first found this at a Good Earth store in FL years ago and I have used it ever since. It's a perfect sultry musk that stays close to my skin leaving a wafty yummyness wherever I go. Very sexy, I love it!
Sickeningly sweet and cloying, ugh! And strong! Think baby powder slathered in honey but sweeter. I had to scrub it off. Into the swap pile with this one...
Smooth soothing clean musk. *Very* similar to Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess, which is one of the sexiest scents in my arsenal. This warm feminine fragrance that brings to mind a sultry yet demure Egyptian queen clothed in gold. Once this scent settles on your skin, you can be certain you'll linger on the mind of those in your wake.
I took a chance with this one as a sample. It's a pleasant scent but it reminds me of temple incense. I get the rose but the honeysuckle is skewed. Not a blend I am personally too fond of in a perfume, but definitely worth trying as a sample.
Very sweet permeating jasmine and gardenia florals. Lovely scent but alone it's too sweet at first. I layer it on top of a musk, like Kuuma's Persian Garden. Tones down to a buttery jasmine like the previous reviewer mentioned. Reminds me of innocence, purity and happiness.
Heady jasmine in full bloom in a sunny garden on a hot summer day. Very sweet, even for a jasmine. Great staying power with this one.
Deep musk undertones with a clean floral finish. This subtle scent meshes well with body chemistry and lingers on the skin like a delicious aura. This is one that the wearer can't easily detect yet anyone in your vapor trail is blissfully intoxicated. Layers very well as a base scent, especially with Kuumba's Pikaki Lei. (This scent is a favourite of my kitten. She picks through my perfume and steals this vial to hide in her bed!)
Sweet, youthful, and flirty. I went through a very happy time in my life this summer and this was my mémoire de vivre. Will long be a classic for me.
I got this as a sample at Sephora. If I were a bug, this would be my repellent. I gave it a shot, I really did. Not pleasant.
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara

It is very black, but not enough of a result to justify the outrageous price! I found the brush to clump more than regular Diorshow. Very very prone to smudging. I was not so impressed. I find Maybelline 'scaras to far out preform this pricey, overrated stuff.
It's OK but certainly nothing special, *especially* not for the outrageous price! Very prone to smudging. And I didn't care for the smell. Not impressed. I find Maybelline 'scaras to far out preform this pricey, overrated stuff.
Love, love, love it! This is my HG and mascara is my thing. Great brush, great 'scara, fab results and no flaking. I've even slept in this stuff and wake up without a smudge. (but don't be lazy like me, wash your face)
Really unique tube, it's bright screaming yellow. Goes on easlily for me, with a classic bristle brush, which I prefer. (not the comb or the plastic spike things they're promoting now) Fullness is OK and the definition is great. I don't mind the smell, it reminds me of lilacs. Still I can see how this could be an annoyance for some. A good alternative to my fav, Maybelline Full and Soft.
