I love this. It's soapy and clean, yet sensual with a powdery dry-down similar to Prada's Infusion D'Iris.
I love marine scents, and natrurally, I really like Wall Street. I mix this with Scent Of Peace to make this my own, but I like it on its own regardless.
A very nice, inoffensive scent that one would find everyday. Perfect for everyday stuff or school/work. I can definitely see the resemblence to D&G's Light Blue. I mix this with Wall Street, and together, I feel like this scent is my own.
Fragrances -Narciso Rodriguez - Narciso Rodriguez for her

I thought that this fragrance was just popular because of the hype surrounding it, but I'm glad to be corrected. Yes, it is a very musky, soapy scent. But it also comes off very sensual. I had a sample of this, and I felt amazingly sexy about myself when I had it on. It's not everyday that a fragrance invokes any emotions for me! I've gotten compliments about it from everyone so far, so with all that in mind, I think For Her EDT would be a good investment for this customer!
I can understand the perspectives of people who think this scent is overrated (even unnecessary) for its price, but for me, I find it very pleasant. It reminds me of times when I have a day off from a hard week of work, and am just sitting around after getting EVERY chore imaginable done. That, to me, feels clean, and this scent reflects it.
Lip Gloss -MAC - Live and Dye (Brunette Blonde Redhead)

Nothing really spectacular in the tube or on its own, I wore this to enhance my Marquise D lipstick. With it, my lips are a pretty shade of light pink. I'd consider re-purchasing if no other lipglass comes close to the same result.
Admittedly a very pretty shade, especially my physical features (olive skin, asian eyes, black hair). Despite this, I am still not sure if I am completely in love with this product, as I'm not really into "bronzed" cheeks. Hopefully I'll change my mind when the weather warms up
Lipstick -MAC - Marquise D' (Blonde Brunette Redhead)

For me, this is more of a nudish pink. It goes on very sheer, but is buildable. I like to pair this with Live & Dye lipglass (also of the BBR collection), and it looks like a very nice pink.
I only have the small version of this, as I bought it specifically for my wedding and needed to make sure that if I had a bad reaction to it (it happens) that I didn't waste $32+. Both me and my cousin found that it made my skin very soft & velvety. I think it makes a difference when I put on foundation or tinted moisturizer.
They say that when it comes to mascara, it's hard to get one that has it all: Length, Volume and Definition... Fatale gives you all 3. Yes, the brush is not the usual ones one is used to seeing, and luckily, I've read the MUA reviews about this. The application was almost easy for me (it did take a couple attempts), but I found that all it took was 1 side of the 3-sided comb, and my lashes were comparable to the results of my Diorshow. Did I also mention that it holds a curl as well? Right now, absolute love love love. Will absolutely repurchase!
They say that when it comes to mascara, it's hard to get one that has it all: Length, Volume and Definition. If I had to choose just one quality in a good mascara, it would be Length. And that's what L'Extreme does. The mascara definitely has an interesting tube shape, but once I got past that, I got a smooth application, and LEEEEENGTH! Very beautiful, long NATURAL-LOOKING lashes on my Asian eyes. The definition is a bonus. Will definitely re-purchase.
Definitely not a cheap product, but I think it's worth it. I absolutely love white florals, I love sea salt air, and I love soapy scents. Love In White definitely blends every element together in the most perfect way. I wore it specifically for my wedding day, and have not regretted it eversince.
Eye Makeup Remover -Olay - Mascara + Make Up Remover

Smells nice, removes NORMAL makeup well enough, but my waterproof mascara claims another victim. Will definitely not repurchase.
An absolute must for harsh pigmentation (superdark undereye circles).
Right now I use Honey for under my eyes. Even though I have gone lighter in skintone (Warm Natural), I find this still works. The extra time used to apply the corrector and this is so worth it.
