Flash by Jimmy Choo -one spritz and i had to run to wash the scent off of my wrist -the scent is sharp- like harpoon sharp! -not for me, not with my chemistry
YSL Manifesto eau de parfum is a sophisticated scent. -the bottle design is mysterious and opulent -ad campaign with Jessica Chastain- Bravo! -a unique gourmand fragrance that is complex, creamy and sultry on my skin -I can't compare this fragrance to any other fragrance as it would not be fair as Manifesto stands or sits crossed legged and sultry on its own ; ) -For reference I wear Alien, YSL Elle, Angel, Bvlgari Notte, Hermes Eau de Merveilles, Lolita, Montale Chocolate Greedy, Prada Candy, Sinner by Kat Von D and many more gourmand fragrances. -highly addictive- upon first spritz I was enveloped in a crisp green, woody vanilla after a few moments the fragrance settles to a rich sambac jasmine and comes through to a dry down of a slightly oriental base of vanilla and tonka bean creaminess. Love... -I adore everything about this gorgeously complex fragrance. -excellent longevity- lasts all day and lingers until the morning-so sexy!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - EyeStudio Color Explosion Eyeshadow in Caffeine Rush
rockstar00 5/11/2013 9:52:00 AM
This is my first eyeshadow palette from Maybelline. The quint features gorgeous, highly pigmented and bendable colors. The gold at the top is the most glittery of the 5 - I use it as inner corner or under brow bone for a night look. The darker brown is a smooth and a rich shade. The taupe is also gorgeous and blendable. The frosty light colors (on the left and center of the pallette) are great as a liners, inner corner or as a brow bone highlighter. Love... I'm not really a neutrals eyeshadow wearing type of girl but this little gem has a rockstar edge that I have never seen in a neutral palette before. I like to wear the two darker shades blended out all over my lower lids then the gold on the inner corner with turquoise eyeliner and a few coats of mascara. Love!
This is my all time favorite lipglosses ever! Spring Bean is a lusterglass. In the tube it looks lime green with sparkles/glitter. On the lips it looks DIVINE! Think glamour, polished makeup and wet caramel lips with reflective sparkles. Gorgeous!
Cleansers -Sue Devitt - Microquatic Purifying Cleanser
rockstar00 1/16/2013 8:15:00 PM
Sue Devitt has some pretty amazing products as far as skin care. I have tried the serum and the face mask. I decided to give the cleanser a try. Its nice. -the consistency is on the watery side -the scent is a bit on the seaweed/marine aquatic side. I like it. -the instructions are to use a pea sized amount. I use more for my face and neck. A pea size amount didn't feel like enough. -the cleanser is wonderfully cooling and leaves my skin soft, glowy and supple. -my makeup came all off with the help of a cotton cosmetic round. -my skin felt clean, looked clean and healthy I like this cleanser and I'm glad I tried it but there are too many other cleansers in the world to repurchase this one.
This is one of the most beautiful shades of grey eyeshadow I have ever seen. This eyeshadow can be used wet or dry. I like to wear this as a wash of color on my eyelids and then I sweep an aqua or bright purple eyeliner ,the look is amazing. This particular shade of grey makes my eyes pop like no other. I adore this eyeshadow and will be pairing it with silver, gold and emerald green.
Do you remember the way your cheeks looked after playing outside in the cold for hours? That rosy flush of glow. Well with practice and patience this product will give you that healthy dewy young and fresh glow. Application (how I use this product) -I squeeze out about the size of a pea -evenly distribute pea size between my ring fingers -gently apply to the relaxed apples of my cheeks -then softly blend in a patting motion on my cheeks (i just do the apples and a swish upward for good measure) -then wait and let the product sit for a minute -at first it will appear clownish but the product relaxes a bit and leaves a beautiful flush of pink It will take practice getting the hang of this product but the pay off is quite lovely.
Misfit duo is a gorgeous duo of a soft beige and rich green on my coloring I get a true green. I created a few different looks with this duo and I love each look. The shadows are highly pigmented and blend out fanticastically. I plan on picking up a few more duos by Nars.
This fragrance makes me feel instantly sick and gives me a monster headache. My chemistry does not appreciate this scent. I have never worn the fragrance but I have been around a few people that enjoy wearing it. I asked one lady the exact name for reference from that moment on I know exactly what someone is wearing when they are rocking this out.
Le Rouge by YSL is my first YSL lipstick purchase. I own one YSL glossy stain that I adore so I figured I would try out the lipstick. I am a red, hot pink, magenta to fuchsia lipstick wearer so bold lips are in my comfort zone. Le Rouge is a Blood Red color. -packaging is stellar. -color is a bright red with some blue but not too much. -pigmentation is rich -product is moisturizing -good couple of hours wear (drinking and some snacking included) -I have also been asked 133431421241234 times which lipstick color I'm wearing by chicks when I rock Le Rouge. Cool guys just say "I like your lipstick" : ) I simply love everything about this lipstick. I plan on purchasing Le Fuchsia. I picked this bad boy up at Sephora in Las Vegas it was the last in the store. It is always sold out on Sephora.com.
Treatments (Eye) -Clinique - All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage

This bad boy was in a gwp. I'm not sure if I ever would have tried/purchased it otherwise so the fact that I like it so much is a testament to the fabulousness of gwp. I do not have dark circles or anything needing eye cream/serum. However, I love the coolness of the roller ball around my eye area upon application. I will definitely purchase this gem of an eye area treat once it runs out.
This is the BEST Highlighter! This highlighter provides the perfect glow for inner eye corner, cupid's bow, high on the cheekbones, bridge of the nose. Perfect, Gorgeous, Stunning with the most beautiful soft golden satiny glow you can find in powder form.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara
rockstar00 12/27/2012 9:42:00 PM
This was my first and last time buying this mascara. It is black, pitch black in fact. It dries and flakes. I don't like flaky mascara as I do not want flakes going into my eyes. This mascara is also a pain in the toukas to take off.
This is the most gorgeous shade of champagne perfect for inner/outer highlight eye color. Wonderful as an all over wash of color. Jumbo pencil Glides on like no other Highly pigmented Reasonably priced I bought these at my local drugstore after reading reviews on mua. I picked up champagne toast and winter white.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Holiday Formal Black -Suedette- 6 Intense Eyes

I bought this fantastic palette almost six years ago. I have hit pan on 3 of the 6 colors and it saddens me that this was LE item. I adore all 6 colors. Excellent pigmentation, quality, and color combinations. Love this palette.
