Cleansers -Stella McCartney - CARE Purifying Foaming Cleanser

This is the only product in the Care line that I like a little better. The smell is diluted in the foam---but still overly flowery. It's not too drying, and the bottle is a nice size. I am just not sold on this stuff, as much as I want to be. I'll keep using it and see if it gets better along the way.
Moisturizers -Stella McCartney - CARE 5 Benefits Moisturizing Cream

I just tried this tonight. The packaging is cool, and it's in a pump dispenser. The flowery scent is a turn-off to me, and the wheat-color of the moisturizer is kind of odd. It's moisturizing, but we'll see if it breaks me out. A little goes a long way as far as moisture. I'm not a big fan of the flowery scents of this line.
I like this OK. It has a clean scent with a whiff of vanilla-y and maybe patchouli and herbs. It's an interesting smell that is probably not a day to day thing to wear. I absolutely hate the regular Burberry, so this lighter version helped me with my Burberry fix!
I only wear this at night, and just a spritz. It's strong, but it's a pretty sexy scent. A guy my ex-roommate dated could not stop gabbing about how great I smelled when I wore this...which I don't think made her too happy! But he was so moved by it that he took down the name of it so that he could buy HER some! Haha!
My usual scent, Happy Heart gets so many compliments every time I wear it! It's sweet, but fresh and floral, and is good for day (lightness) and night (sexy sweetness). Plus, it's a great price.
I have Stella in Two Peony and LOVE it! It's light, airy and fresh smelling. It's a nice break from my regular Happy Heart.
I got a sample of this and it's interesting. I'd never tried a tube mascara before, and this did what it said it would...but it was just an odd experience because I was tugging at my lashes for a while to get all the little tubes off. It doesn't make your lashes full, but it does lengthen well. The formula is very wet...as in, it still feels pretty saturated when I put it on my lashes, as opposed to when I use a regular mascara and while it's still wet, it isn't going to smudge if I just blink after applying. I'm glad to have tried this, but I would never buy it.
This is my fallback mascara and my drugstore HG. Before I found DiorShow, nothing compared to this stuff! It really does make my lashes full...and soft. Ha! It's got a nice, non-gloopy formula and a decently thick brush. I never get raccoon eyes, even when I wear it on my lower lashes. Bravo for Maybelline!
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara

I'm a fan of the classic DiorShow mascara, but when this came out and was advertised as the blackest mascara out there, I had to try. Sadly, it left me with raccoon eyes and wasn't as thickening as the classic. The brush is also not as thick as the regular DiorShow. Back to Sephora, you go!
This is my favorite mascara. It thickens, lengthens and has a great brush. I don't get the dreaded raccoon eyes with this baby. May be my HG...
I was really excited to try this out---who could resist the big brush and the cute packaging? I wish I did. This stuff left me with raccoon eyes (I don't even wear mascara on my lower lashes!). Good thing I got it at Sephora and could return it!
