This is orange blossom done right! I did not like the EDP as it was too rich and thick for my aquatic fume loving self. Somehow this winter has me leaning toward warm florals instead of caramely sweet goodness. This is a beautiful floral, lighter than the first but still has a "presence". This is my new signature scent. My last was L'eau d'Issey and that was a long time ago. I almost didn't want to review this because I don't want the world to smell as good as I do right now, but I will share because I hate to have someone hold back a great scent from me. Enjoy!

Best liquid liner ever. Love the tip, easy to use!
You can't beat this for $1. I ordered little round adhesive magnets on e-bay. I love that it holds Inglot round eyeshadows and the freedom lipsticks and MAC eyeshadow. I appreciate the large mirror too as MAC 4-pans are clear on top, but have no mirror. Sometimes the clasp is not right so check it out before you buy one.
Fragrances -Dolce & Gabbana - Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme 2012 Release

This review is for the new 2012 D&G Pour Femme. This is a totally different fragrance from the previous version. Which is fine with me because I didn't like that one on my skin at all. I do like this one a lot. It simply smells like raspberries and marsmallows melting in the warm sun.
OK, I'll admit I love Stila eyeshadow anyways, for quialty and payoff. I will also admit that these colors are all dupable, BUT I totally rate this high because they are all in a nifty palette together with a great blush. Instead of carrying 4 differnt colors and a blush and highlighter and a mirror, I can carry this instead. So it can be duped with maybe Rock and Republic Alloy, the copper color from MAC spiced chocolate quad, MAC Sparkle Neely Sparkle (without the fallout), and a dark Teal from my Sleek Storm Palette. Soooooo instead of toting all that outta the house, I can carry this instead. Love it for $14, thats a little less than$4 for 4 shadows. Usually all palettes have that one DUD that is unuasable, but this doesn't have that. I use them all. I wear it with my Coral lipsticks. Cardboard casing, but hey we can recycle!
The cremesheen glosses are the most moisturizing MAC makes in my opinion. I was looking for a coral gloss and I got it in this. It feels great for hours, not so sticky. I love it.
I love the way this trio looks on my hand; however, on the eyes it is a different story. The lightest color went on too sheer to be a lid color. It's best for a highlight. The pretty medium brown is so full of gold glitter that its crazy! Fallout galore! And gold sparkles EVERYWHERE. In the package the colors easily sift together instead of staying separate. The matte brown is the best one to deal with, but its a basic brown. I my have to try this with my pixie epoxy, but so far its a return.

Better than MAC or Z palettes! I really appreciate that there is a mirror. I can fit 9 mac singles in here! The clasp can break though, so you have to be gentle.

I really like this new release. I bought it with the old faithful Vanilla bean noel. It's a warmed up berry scent. Not overwhelming at all.
OK, picked this up in Nordstrom rack for $10. Happy as a lark, cuz its sold out on the website. Love the colors...but I have never met an eyeshadow that didn't last for at least 6 hours with UD Primer potion underneath!!! WTF. The colors didnt crease, but actually faded out by 3 hours. GONE with the wind. This explains why its so cheap. Great slimline package, great colors, no staying power at all.
Perfect product, easy to put in, comes out easy and holds a style like 200 bobbi pins. I only have one gripe! It's my fault though, the darn things roll off fo fflat surfaces and I LIKE WATCHING THEM GO!!!!!!!! Haha, no lips off for that.. I wonder if we could race them!!!!

DH just said this smells like Clinique Happy for men, which I personally loved!!! IMO a little more depth and personality than the womens version. LOL, it was funny to see another reviewer says "smells like Happy" too. Pretty bottle, decent price.
Very nice matte eyeshadow, goes on smooth as butter, blends well. I don't know why they named it nutty brownie, cuz its not brown or nut colored at all. It pulls to a perfect purple/mauve on me. Plays well with others(nice bendiing). I just don't believe these are $12 each.
Went shopping for Fathers day fragrance and look whats happened! Darnnit this smeels like a lush garden in the sunshine after a summer rain! Creamy gardenia, warm coconut pina colada, garnished with a lime. I think I might get this for myself!
Smells just like Ralph Lauren Ralph to me (in the blue short bottle). Strawberry and aquatic notes. I would only buy this if it lasted longer than Ralph....which it doesn't.
