I'm at the point where nothing is really smelling unique anymore; everything that I've smelled recently reminds me of something else. This Jimmy Choo fragrance, although is beautiful, actually smells a lot like CK Euphoria... JC is just a lighter version of it, a tad bit more powdery, and the lasting power is not very good compared to Euphoria. I'm not really sure where everyone is getting the Flowerbomb comparsion (the bottles look the same, the scent..not so sure). So, bottom line, if you have smelled Euphoria, you've smelled this...sorry Jimmy Choo, it's a lovely fragrance, but not too unique.
I am in love with "In Love" perfume! It's said to have rose, jasmine, and apple blossom as main notes; however, the rose is more prominent. I can't stop smelling myself all day!! The only downside is the shape of the bottle...it has a large square shape which makes spraying a little difficult. I will definitely repurchase...this has become my signature scent. If you get a chance to smell this, please do! I purchase the perfume (from a boutique) and the lotion (online)...3.4 oz is $48 oline and the lotion is $24...love this better than Breathe (which is good also) and Wish (gross...too sugary)...
Out of the three pigments in this collection, I only picked up this one because it was extremely BEAUTIFUL!! Upon swatching, I immediately thought Satin Taupe...however, while ST pulls a little plum on my skintone, Aurora pulls a little pink/bronzey/grey if that makes since (?). I love it, and I'm ready to make tons of looks using this color. Will update if anything changes. Ref: NC50/NW45; ALMOND 7 BB
I know that this is a bronzer, but I was looking around for a face powder that would give me a nice coverage and not break me out, and I ended up getting this is #5 as an all over face powder. I'm tired of MAC, MUFE, NARS and other brands breaking my face out, so I figured I would give this a shot, and I'm glad that I did. This bronzer gives me a nice glow and on top of my concealer, it's the perfect coverage. I've gotten so many compliments on how nice and glowy my skin is when I wear this. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to try something different as a face powder. I also tried #7, but it was too dark...Mac nc50/nw45..Bobbi Brown Almond 7 for reference. It is expensive, but it's worth it.
I love this fragrance in the body mist form layered on top of the Incredible body lotion(lasts longer this way). It's something about this that is very sexy and beautful. It's not perfumey, so the dry down is not bothersome (you could actually wear this to bed and not be bothered by it). I would definitely repurchase this when I run out.
Yes!! I would definitely buy this soap again and have been for years now! We they discontinued my passion fruit shower gel, I need another alternative, so this very fresh, lovely scent is my go-to soap now! For some odd reason, this reminds me of summertime in my youth, but I'm positive that we didn't have any moringa flowers in our front yard, so I have no idea why. This is a little expensive for a bar of soap, but I don't mind splurging--btw, having a "love your body" card and their ongoing sales make this purchase so easy to stock up on! My husband and I both use it, so this goes super fast...
I wore the Halo body mist and body lotion to my wedding and honeymoon five years ago...I'm not sure what I've done with that particular bottle, but I just went into VS yesterday and smelled this and it brought back so many memories! I picked up a bottle and with it being on sale for only 15 bucks, I thought it was a great purchase! I'm just smelling myself right now, thinking about our special day...this works well with my body chemistry and I'm glad that it does.
Tinted Moisturizer -Bobbi Brown - Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer (Spring 2011)

Yes, Ma'am!!!! This product is AMAZING!! I love the texture..it looks so natural from start to finish! Normally, I would be oily by the end of the day with anything else, but with this Oil-Free Moisturizer, my face looks like I've just put it on, even at 3 in the afternoon!! Another purchase that I made along with this is the touch up stick. I think those two products together make a big difference! I haven't broken out from this, and I plan on making this my year round "foundation" instead of just for summertime. Love it!! For reference, I'm Almond 7 (BB), nc50/nw45 (MAC)..in this tinted moisturizer I have Rich Tint, but I've purchased Deep Tint as Rich is slightly too red for me...Go try it and get a sample to see how you like...I like the oil-free much better than the regular.
Very beautiful bronzer, and now that it is about to be discontinued, I will be getting a back up. I discovered this bronzer last summer, and I feel that it just compliments brown skin. MAC currently has four bronzers, and I think that they were/could be assigned to each category of skin tone. Ex: Golden: Light/Fair skin tones, Refined Golden: Light/Medium skin tones, Bronze: Medium/Medium Dark skin tones, and Refined Deeper Bronze: Dark/Deep skin tones. I truly believe that this bronzer is receiving bad reviews because the people that it was "meant" for aren't wearing it. Now, don't get me wrong, I feel that anyone can "make it work"...but you have to practice and use it to your comfort level. Hope this helps! Reference: NC50/NW45 (MAC); Almond 7 (Bobbi Brown)
This scent is perfect for me!!! My husband said that it smells like "soap" on me, and that's exactly what I was going for. I believe that this perfume is perfect for the winter months...not to strong and the sweetness is not headache inducing...I will let you guys know how this works for me in the summer!
Beautiful light green color!!! I packed Juxt on my lid on top of Beige-ing shadestick, Swiss Chocolate (crease), Embark (outer v), and Grain as a highlight....I received so many compliments when I wore this look...Love this color and will repurchase when I hit pan... Reference: MAC NC50/NW45 Bobbi Brown Almond 7
This is my HG red lippie...I normally stick with neutrals, but when I tried this on at my CCO yesterday, it was hard to resist the look that I could create for a night out or holiday with this lipstick...Love the semi-matte formula for this color..MUCH, MUCH better that Ruby Woo IMO...Ruby Woo is too matte and too orange-y looking on me...Although Seriously Rich is similar in color, it's more red and less matte than Ruby Woo...if you tried on Ruby Woo and totally hated it, give this lippie a try...hope you like it as much as I do..:) NC50/NW45 Bobbi Brown Almond 7
I actually really like this mascara! It makes my lashes really full and stand out...this is the blackest black mascara that MAC makes...if you are having trouble, try using the Prep + Prime lash primer first, then add this...hope you like..I do! :-)

This is the best brush for applying Studio Fix Fluid! I know that it wasn't made for that, but it gives such an airbrushed finished...I love it!
