I got this today on clearance at TS for $10 and they had 4 more. I plan on going back tomorrow because not only is it good on open and drydown but the sillage is AWESOME! The lovely reviewer below me did a great job listing the elements to this lovely frag but its one you really have to experience to appreciate. Not only is the frag lovely but the bottle will look nice on the dresser:) I will …Read more

i got a great deal on this and ended up with 4 of them. my first one i have had for months and its just fine. it does the best job on my nails and it hasnt broken or chipped and i am notoriously rough on my stuff. this makes short work of my snags, usually one pass and they are gone. also i dont clip my nails i use this to file them down if they get too long. love this AND love the lifetime …Read more

Fragrances - Prada - Infusion de Fleur d'Oranger EDP

Apr/02/2011

Notes for Prada Infusion de Fleur d'Oranger: neroli*, mandarin, jasmine, orange blossom absolute*, tuberose, and Serendoline (sic, per Neiman Marcus' site ~but that's a typo perpetuated into infinity; in fact it is Serenolide, a synthetic musk by Givaudan, which accounts for the "clean" base)

I got this tonight off craigslist and i have to say this is among the …

*Sad Sigh* another product that I got as a BzzAgent, this is the 3rd thing I got to try as a BzzAgent, I love that program.

I really wanted to try this because as others said, I was kinda liking the theory of the glittah tips to your lashes. My question is, where is the glittahhhh???

The mascara is good old L'Oreal and I do like their mascaras but all in all I dont …

Highlighters - Hard Candy - Glow All The Way in Glamazon Bronze

I like to use this for targeted highlighting but I always follow it either with my cream foundation or powder to buff it out. If I dont do that I look like a huge disco ball. However, once you diffuse it there is this sparkly glow to your face that is just so pretty. I have a couple of the MAC highlighters and this puts both of them to shame. For the price and how much you get this is a steal.

I love this stuff. On its own it can be a little TOO glitzy leaving a lot of glittah on my face but when I mix it in with my cream foundation its PERFECT! I either mix it right in with the foundation or put a little on my face where I want specific highlighting and then apply my foundation right away in those spots and buff it out. For the price and how much you get? This is a steal.

i dont use this as a typical concealer. i put moisturizer on my face, then primer, then a tinted luminizer and i use this to just even everything out. i use my sonia kashuk flatop and pick up both the yellow and the flesh color and put it under my eyes and nose area and around my mouth and then just brush to blend over the rest of my face and its a beautiful finish. i dont have to top with …Read more

i bought this as part of a pack with one of the burlesque glitters which is really the one i wanted. turns out of hte two this is my favorite! i need a back up of this its just gorgeous! there are so many different color sparklys that just play off each other. even in low light its spectacular but take it outside and wear sunglasses if you look at it:)
