Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish - Airy Fairy

I'd heard so much about this color but it's completely and totally wrong on me. The shade is a nice nude, and the golden shimmer is pretty. I do think it would be lovely on warmer-toned girls, but on me it looks a little dirty and orange. I'm very fair and cool-toned so finding a nice subtle shade can be difficult. There's something a little off about the texture as well; I …Read more

Styling Products - Oscar Blandi - Jasmine Oil Serum

5.0

Jun/29/2011

I'm one of those people who snagged a deluxe sample of this product from Sephora and fell in love immediately. My hair is thick and coarse and it's very important that my hair serum tame frizz and add shine without weighing it down. This serum does just that! My hair looks and feels healthier but not oily or greasy. It's super-lightweight (on my hair, anyway--it might be a little …Read more

Fragrances - Kat Von D - Adora

Wow, I'm really surprised to see all these negative reviews! Just goes to show you that different individuals' unique chemistries have a HUGE impact on the way a scent performs. Personally, though I'm definitely not a fan of Kat Von D (like, not at all--that fact that this scent had her name on it really made me think long and hard about my purchase) I found that Adora is divine on …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Sun Worshiper

Wow, this is bright! To me, it appears to be even brighter (think highlighter-bright!) on the nail than in the bottle. I'm not a huge fan of China Glaze's thin, patchy formula but this is a fun, funky color--great for parties.

Polishes - China Glaze - Turned Up Turquoise

Jun/29/2011

Not what I expected at all. I'm kind of kicking myself for putting down For Audrey and picking up this one. It's not really turquoise at all--I'd say that it's definitely green. I don't like the matte finish at all but with a coat of Seche Vite that issue is remedied. I'm not huge on China Glaze but I was sort of disappointed to find that the formula was just as …Read more

Fragrances - Victoria's Secret - Bombshell Eau de Parfum

On its own Bombshell is all right--standard VS fare, fresh and sweet. However, my favorite way to wear this scent is to layer it with Thierry Mugler's Angel. Bombshell's fruity sweetness negates a lot of Angel's spicy undertones and the combination is a borderline-unisex blend of musk, vanilla and florals that I think is the perfect sexy scent for summer nights. Plus, layering a …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - Body Cream - Sensual Amber

The body butter formula is super-moisturizing as usual, but my favorite aspect of this product is the scent. It's very unique compared to a lot of BBW's other scents and also much more mature than a lot of their florals and fruity smells tend to be. I love using it before bed--the smell always lingers on my sheets. It's a little heavy so apply in moderation. It's also probably …Read more

Polishes - MILANI - Milani Nail Laquer - 10 Pyramid Passion

This was an impulse purchase from CVS; I wasn't even looking for nail polish but the brightness got my attention, as bright shades usually do. :) I love this on my toes for summer. It seems to look good on every skin tone, even my incredibly pale skin. This is actually a one-coat polish for me (which is rare!) because it's really opaque. It seems to take a long time to dry on me …Read more

May/12/2011

I love this shade--it's so "out there" and interesting that I usually wear it on lipstick-and-nothing-else days. I read a lot of reviews prior to my purchase that swore up and down it wasn't neon, but to my absolute delight it looks like a pink highlighter against my super-fair skin. I only purchased one and now I'm kicking myself because I could definitely use a backup! …Read more
