I am a huge carine roitfeld fan girl so I was thrilled beyond belief when this launched. I know I am a bit late on the review but here goes. I LOVE the packaging. Yup! That's about it. Completely sheer with a weird shimmery and drying pay off. Such a disappointment. I also find the name weird for something to do with the chic carine. Just weird all around. Better luck next time MAC.
The name voyage is perfect for this scent. It takes you to a calm, exotic place. A place where you can be free. This has to be the most fresh scent my nose has ever encountered. It is so interesting. It drives my senses crazy. I adore this scent. The embodiment of an hermes summer. This scent is the equivalent of the garden party tote or a blue jean birkin. You have to try it to understand.
Let me start off by saying...WATT A PRODUCT! Lol If you are looking for the HG highlighter look no further. Watts up gives you all the glow you need minus the oiliness that others do. It's a cream that turns to powder and has a pleasant texture. Depending on how much you use it can be subtle to intense. I have never gotten so many comment on my skin since starting to use this product. Everyone is commenting on how healthy, happy, gorgeous etc. I got this as a birthday gift from sephora and immediately went and bought a full size one (in case they discontinue like so many of my favs always do) The packaging is so cute as usual with benefit. I would recommend this to every woman with every kind of skin.
For me MAC lipsticks are trial and error. Some I love and others do absolutely nothing for me. For some reason a lot of lipsticks from them turn up orange on me after a while so you would think coral would be a no no for me but...I purchased this and I am in love. It is super flattering on my skin and is the perfect summer coral color. It has a creamy texture and makes my lips appear fuller. If you were dying for cut a caper than you will LOVE this and I believe it is a permanent color. The only thing that I find annoying is that you need to reapply often to keep the vibrancy and glossiness of the lipstick.

Propoline is by far the best lip moisturizer. It moisturizes even severely chapped lips and is very smooth and does not leave a nasty white residue, that I have noticed other lip balms etc. do. I have the one with the olive oil and it smells so great. I would definitely buy this again and again. I also have the currant one and it leaves a nice tint on the lips. Best for lips!!!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Midnight Pomegranate All Items

Best body spray out there!! It has the lightness of a body spray and the staying power of an EDP. Midnight Pomegranate has a delicious scent and can be worn day or night. I hope they do not discontinue this product ever!
Hair Styling Tools -Farouk CHI - Chi Ceramic Flat Iron by Farouk
discoclemonade 4/1/2010 12:56:00 AM
HG iron for sure!! I have really thick, unruly and wavy hair. You can say I have a horse mane lol and the CHI iron makes my hair super straight and shiny and does not burn it. You can also curl your hair with this iron way better than with a curling iron. For the reviewers that are saying that the CHI broke for no reason- Here is the reason ( very useful for anyone with a CHI) be careful with the cord. If the cord splits or twists after time your iron will NO longer work. You must take extra special care of the cord and wrap it up properly or even hang your iron on a hook bc once the cord goes the whole iron is out of commission. CHI uses a special cord that is not replaceable therefore you will need to buy a new iron. So all in all ladies treat your CHI ( The cord especially with TLC and your iron will last!
Eye Shadow -La Prairie - Eye Colour Ensemble in Les Epices
discoclemonade 4/1/2010 12:32:00 AM
One of my absolute favorite quads of all time!! Les Epices has four amazing colors and you can do a lot with them. There is a creamy colored shimmery pink that looks great when going for the natural look and the deep green if you are looking for a different spin on the smokey eye. The pigments are great. Love this product, more people need to try this one.
My boyfriend had originally bought a bottle of this and I literally could not keep my hands off of him!! It is like a sex potion in a bottle. I knew it was unisex so I have been using it as well and I get hit on a lot when I wear it. D & G hit the mark. It is called La Lune- meaning moon in french so it has a mysterious quality to it and trust me you will be having a ton of nights under the moon if you or your significant other wears this!!
I have never smelled anything like L by L.A.M.B. The number one most unique scent ever. It is so gorgeous and sensual at the same time. A scent that you can wear going shopping or to the beach AND an evening out. Out of all the celebrity scents L is the classiest and most high end in my opinion.This one is worth buying and wearing forever and ever. I am not being biased either because I am not really a fan of Gwen.
Moisturizers -La Mer - Creme de la mer moisturizer

Say yes to La Mer. Do not hesitate because of the price. Do not let your husband/boyfriend/rent stop you.Trust me it is worth every penny. Your skin will thank you later.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Dream Angels Desire
discoclemonade 3/30/2010 3:35:00 AM
The most offensive smelling fragrance that has ever met my skin and nose. Migraine inducing to the point of vomit. When purchasing buy a bottle of Motrin, because trust me you and everyone around you will be begging for a few. Ugly smell and ugly packaging. If I could give this one a negative number I certainly would.
Polishes -Lippmann Collection - Hit Me With Your Best Shot
discoclemonade 3/30/2010 2:02:00 AM
I think this color is so overrated. I purchased this with high hopes and was left with a dull looking black that chipped even with base and top coat. Not worth it for the price. Will not buy again. OPI is way better.
Love this scent!!! So beautiful.
Let me start off by saying I am not one for citrus scents and i tend to prefer anything but lemon but this perfume changed my mind. I love the way this smells. It reminds me of drinking a cold glass of lemonade in a field of flowers on a summer day. It is not sugary sweet and is more on the sophisticated side. I spray this on after a shower and I can smell it all day. The bottle is just as clean and modern as the perfume it holds.
