My favorite vanilla. It is warm and subtle, and it layers really well with other fragrances. I will buy it again and again.
This is the best shampoo I have tried in a long time. I have a greasy, sensitive scalp and dry ends, so finding a good hair product is like looking for a needle in a haystack. This shampoo keeps my hair clean, relatively soft, and flake-free. It smells like orange popsicle sticks. I will buy again and again.
This is a perfect matte true peach. It's very highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way. It's the peach that I've been looking for to go with those spring/summer eye colors. Or just a litte of this, some lipbalm and black mascara and I'm good to go. Thumbs up!
I've repurchased this product four times. It is definitely a staple...it's the most amazing liquid eyeliner ever. I've tried other brands, and I keep coming back. I'm the kind of person who needs a felt tip liner, and this one is thin and precise. The eyeliner lasts forever on me. I like it best not for dramatic flourishes on my eyes, but for a very thin line at the base of my lashes. It makes for a very subtle, naturally full-lashed look.
I love this lovely kohl. I went looking for a nice brown eyeliner to do a warmer smokey eye. This isn't exactly what I was looking for, but it's perfect in its own ways. This is NOT chocolate brown; instead, it is a shimmery, bronzey shade that smudges nicely above the lid (or on the lower lid) to blend into peach, copper, and bronze eyeshadows. Using this, I can make a beautiful, warm, subtle smokey eye. Will definitely repurchase.
Moisturizers -Nuxe - Creme Fraiche de Beaute Suractivee (for normal skin)

I have almost finished all of this product, and I feel as if I should sing its praises. First of all, let me just say that it is not the most amazing product I have ever used. It is, however, very gentle and lightly moisturizing. I use it on my normal to oily skin in the winter and on the skin on my chest all year round. I love its light scent. I love the fact that it doesn't feel heavy or break me out. I don't buy all the all natural blah blah blah blah. However, I will buy this product again as my skin seems to like it. I will do my utmost to not buy it in the US where it is overpriced. I will beg my friends going to Europe instead.
I am writing this review just as I've repurchased my second bottle. This stuff is great. A clarifying shampoo that does not strip my hair or leave it feeling dry or coarse. The smell is light and pleasant (gently sweet and milky), and it does not linger. This is a plus because I like my fragrance to not have to compete with my shampoo. I use it every other week or so. My boyfriend is madly in love with this shampoo for his own hair and lovingly refers to it as "shamp" (which is what they have written on the bottle, under the terax logo).
I'm so glad I bought this lip gloss in the Sephora sale. It's a sheer bronzey color that will easily replace my Sue Devitt Fire Island (I'm almost out) at a fraction of the cost. Gives lips a natural hint of color and a bit of shimmer. Not too sure about the tingly mint flavor though.
I really like this color and am glad I let the MA talk me into getting it. On my eyelids, Retrospeck is a beautiful light gold. It pairs beautifully with a variety of other colors, works beautifully as a wash and as a highlighter.
What a gorgeous color and beautiful silky texture. For a person that finds brown eyeshadow difficult to wear, this one is wonderful. I love it paired with Retrospeck when I want to put in some effort, or on its own as a sheer shimmery brown wash with some mascara for a polished look. I would recommend to any brown eyed MMM-GGG.
I am on the search for a beautiful peachy, gold eyeshadow. I thought I had found it with Paradisco, but it just doesn't do it for me. I am going to be one of the few who disagrees with everyone else about this eyeshadow. The texture is horrible. I like my eyeshadows pigmented, and usually MAC delivers. However, this one doesn't show up at all on my eyelids. I have to load up the eyeshadow brush to get any effect, and then it's very, very, very subtle. To the point where it's pointless. I tried it with a paint. I tried it on top of and in juxtaposition with other shades. It just does not work. The search continues.
It's products like this one that make me think I'm completely crazy. This stuff stinks. It stings. It costs waaaaaayyy too much money for a handful chemicals dissolved in alcohol and witch hazel. I'm not even fully sure that it prevents or gets rid of ingrown hairs. I STILL don't know, and I've gone through four bottles in the last two years. Then why oh why do I keep buying it? Three reasons. 1) I think it might be working; I don't feel like I have any MORE ingrown hairs than I used to get. 2)(most important reason) I have made the accidental discovery that this is an EXCELLENT deoderant...I stopped using anti-perspirant (aluminum scare), and this fights odor better than any other "natural" deoderant I've tried (it just fights odor...not wetness) 3) I'm too lazy to make the homemade version. Plus I'm scared it won't work.
I love this fragrance. I have worn it for two years now and have also gotten my mother to love it also. My first attraction to Annick Goutal fragrances was the lovely bottles. I am a sucker for packaging, and the pretty, feminine bottles drew me in. After sampling quite a few, I fell for Gardenia Passion. I love gardenia scents, but find that they are hard to capture. When gardenia is sharp, cloying, and headache-inducing, I run the other way. That being said, I would say that this gardenia is extremely buttery, warm and soft. It is a great beginner's gardenia fragrance, and I will always love it (esp. now that I associate it with my mother as well).
This was the very first Nars product and blush I ever purchased. It was a wise choice. Now that I am a blush fiend and am constantly looking for a new blush to give me that perfect glow, I too often forget about this one. I have yet to meet a person on whom this blush does not look beautiful. On my skin, Sin is a natural pink flush. However, it is a color that I crave more in winter months than in summer. The glitter is not too noticeable on the skin, so it works as a great day blush as well. I wanted to add my two cents to the 136 or so reviews to highly recommend this color.
Liquid -Sonia Kashuk - Hydro-Tint SPF 15 [DISCONTINUED]

I have been using this product for about a month now. I chose to use the medium shade because the dark was a little too dark for my skin. The medium looks a little bit light when it first goes on, but once it settles in, it looks natural. I put this on my face every morning after I wash my face; it essentially functions as a moisturizer and sunblock for me first. I have experienced no breakouts, and the oiliness of my skin is relatively in control. As for the coverage, it is very sheer, but just what I need for every day wear. I will definitely repurchase and recommend.
