Good for those who want to try a zinc oxide tinted sunscreen but best suited perhaps for oilier lighter complexions than my combo N.C. 30-35 skin. Not moisturizing enough to use alone in colder weather. Am undecided re whether to repurchase for in summer months, but I may look for another zinc oxide option.
Thick texture (probably due to zinc oxide) that needs to be blended carefully on …

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Extreme Lipstick - Snatched

Except for the scent, this would be a four lippie. I am a fan of Rimmel eye pencils, so I thought I’d try a lipstick. Although I love perfume, I prefer unscented cosmetics and this scented product was sweet and IMO cloying. (I don’t use L’Oréal or revlon scented lipsticks either). For a clear description of the scent, SusieJ’s review of this lipstick (in color birthday suit) is extremely …Read more

Lipstick - wet n wild - Perfect Pout Lip Color - Undercover Lover

Under cover lover is an unscented, neutral toned classic red. It’s vibrant and highly pigmented with buildable color that goes on silky smooth and buttery. Upon application, it’s pretty blendable and not waxy, so there is no rush to apply. With reasonable care, this wears for a long time without budging and eventually fades evenly leaning a stain. No feathering or bleeding even without lipliner …Read more

I am surprised that I have not written a review of this. My now husband, then boyfriend, wore this in the 1980s and I have a bottle of vintage Lagerfeld for men. Also known as Lagerfeld Classic, it has been reformulated and re released in the same bottle - silver circle top, so best bet for the old version is to find a bottle with limited fragrance ingredient list. The Lagerfeld release from 2014 …Read more

This is for Vintage HR edt, new dead stock mini sample bottle. I assumed that I would love HR because I am fond of guerlains vintage fragrances and I have read reviews comparing it favorably with Shalimar. (My favorite Shalimar is vintage disc bottle edc which is less heavy bodied and less powdery than oth Shalimar versions). Sadly HR does not work for me. My skin chemistry does well with scents …Read more

Really a 3.5 as I am not really a floral person. Green, fresh bright lily. I didn’t think this was particularly marine or oceanic, but it’s been a while since I’ve worn anything with saline notes. Nor did I think this was particularly spicy. No vanilla dry down like Lutens Un Lys.

I have a cute mini bottle, about half the size of the full bottle. If your idea of hyacinth is Chamade, then this well blended, smooth hyacinth is Chamades civilized mild mannered granddaughter. On my skin chemistry, it’s relatively pleasant and innocuous. it’s sweet, but not narcotic like some honeysuckle scents. I’ve worn a lot of Annick Goutal and 9nly lately c9me to understand that they …Read more

I used to wear this a long time ago when I was on a Goutal journey. It smelt clean and soapy on me. I don’t recall any trace of mango. My mom sniiffed me and said I smelt like generic (cheap) hotel soap. I switched to Eau d Hadrian whihc smelt like pledge furniture polish on me, then Eau de Sud. Recently I came across a bottle mini of Goutals gran amour, which seemed like a well blended …Read more

I have the ultra face cream with SPF. I am NC 30-35, mature combination skin, prone to hives and milia. This is a bit too rich for me in the summer and caused some whiteheads which is unusual for me.
