Lipstick - Lise Watier - Baiser Velours Matte Lip Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2015

My local drugstore usually carrying NYX products has stopped carrying their Matte lip cream, which I loved. But I was able to find this Lise Watier Baiser Velours Matte lip cream, in Nude Kiss, and I thought I should give it a go.

One of the first "high end" lipsticks I bought when I was a teenager was Lise Watier--my colour was called "Rose Pivoine" and for me …

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/16/2014

I got this in Smoke, a dusty grey/mauve colour, and I got it for a couple of dollars. Put it on this morning and it went on smoothly, dried very quickly, and has so far stayed put and shiny despite dishwashings, a swimming session, a shower...not bad. I liked that the polish didn't have a strong odour, it didn't smudge and made application really easy, and I didn't mind the brush …Read more

Polishes - Butter London - Stag Do

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/12/2013

So, I've heard so many good things about Butter London polishes, but couldn't really find a shade they make that's really very different from colours I already have. Until I found a bottle of Stag Do, which appeared to be a deep slate green with a green/amber/gold microshimmer. Gorgeous! But this is not the colour you get, when it's on your nails.
First of all, I was …

Hair - L'Oreal Paris - Elnett Hairspray

1.0

Nov/29/2011

This hairspray came with so many glowing recommendations so I picked up a can and tried it out, as it has been around for ages but I've always used sprays in spray-pump packaging. The hold is, on me, not much to speak of and no better than many others I've used in the past. But the smell? I don't smell "perfume" so much as sulphur. This is by far the worst smelling …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Clairol - Psssssst Instant Spray Shampoo

3.0

Nov/22/2011

They brought this back from the 70's! I still remember the ads and their catchy little tune, "P S S S S SS T!" I remember it was handy then for all the long hair styles especially, but the problem with the nozzle becoming clogged is turning out to be historically based.

Still, glad to see it back if only for the fact that the price is so much less than the other …

Fragrances - SHISEIDO - inoui

Inoui! Is this fragrance actually back? This was my number one fragrance in the 80's, and I wish Shiseido would bring it back (along with the original Zen, which I still wear. Sparingly. So I can put off running out.)

Polishes - FingerPaints - FingerPaints

Nov/02/2011

I just love finding out which companies make what products, and in make-up, the overlap is head-spinning. So many companies putting out the high end products or the "professional" products also put out the less marketed lines--the same company that makes Chanel makes Bourjois, for example, L'Oreal owns almost all the make-up lines in the drug store or the department store, and …Read more

Polishes - REVLON - Nail Enamel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/01/2011

I remember wearing Revlon polish when I was in high school. Back then, I swam every day and it was the only brand that would stay on and not chip, for at least 3 days. I have a few colours that are several years old (like Smoky Rose, Cherries in the Snow, and Copperglaze Platinum) that still apply and last well (though I do use a thinner in all my polishes to keep them from getting goopy). I …Read more

Hair Color - Clairol - Nice n' Easy Foam

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2011

Bought this because I thought it would be an "easy" version of the Perfect 10 hair dye I usually use--after all, same company, same colour name and colour, it should be true to the colour.

But it wasn't. It was much darker. Light Auburn is a light, golden red colour, in real life. Very light. This foam version of light auburn produces a head of hair that is purple …

Lip Treatments - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Lip Lock Pencil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/17/2011

I just picked this up last week at Winners, I'd never seen it before but I used to use a product like this made by Elizabeth Arden years ago. It was made to keep lipstick and lip gloss from bleeding at the lip line, and it worked amazingly well. I haven't seen that product around in years, but I've always felt it would be great to have again. So when I found this I was pleased …Read more
