Fragrances - J. Lo - Live Luxe

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/14/2011

A friend of mine gave me her half-used bottle of this because she came to hate it during her pregnancy, and she knows I'm a perfume junkie, so I gladly took it. It's a pleasant enough fruity floral, good for the summer, but it doesn't do anything special for me, so I really haven't used it much. The other day I decided to give myself a little spritz, and suddenly I realized …Read more

Fragrances - TOCCA - Colette Eau de Parfum

4.0

Sep/12/2011

I too received this as a sample from Sephora, and I find it to be a beautiful and ultra-feminine scent. Ironically, I love this fragrance for the reason I usually dislike fragrances: a prominent citrus note, which in this case is lemon. I don't know if it's my chemistry that makes citrus notes smell especially harsh on me, or if my nose is extra sensitive to citrus in perfume, or maybe …Read more

Brows - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Castor Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/22/2011

If you want to thicken your brows, and maybe even your lashes, castor oil may be the answer! My mom had a cosmetic laser procedure go wrong which left her once thick brows extemely thin, sparse, and even with a couple of bald spots. My mom was devastated and desperate to fix them, so she was willing to spend money on a product that would make the hair grow back. While searching online for the …Read more

Fragrances - Marc Jacobs - Daisy Eau So Fresh

The original Daisy smelled awful on - funky grass and an old, musty smell - but this version is great! It smells like banana candy to me. Am I the only one who thinks it smells like banana?

Hair Treatments - Sally Hansen - Extra Strength All Over Smart Wax Hair Removal Kit

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/11/2011

This wax is fantastic! Yes, it is super goopy and sticky, and it does make quite a mess, but honestly, I find that a small price to pay for how effectively it removes hair. Pubic hair, to be exact. Yep, I used it there, and this wax removed the hair with ease and minimal pain. It actually hurt less than when I had it. Professionally done. I am beyond happy to have successfully waxed myself; I was …Read more

Fragrances - GIVENCHY - Hot Couture

On paper: An interesting mix of rasberry and wood. This might be nice!

On my skin: Rasberry, cigarettes, and sweet sausage. Yes, sausage. So bad, I had to laugh every time I smelled myself.

On me, this is a 1, but I know it must just be my own crazy body chemistry (because who would want to smell like what I described?!), so that's why I'm rating it a 2. Best …

Fragrances - Liz Claiborne - Curve Crush for Women

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/27/2011

This is a great casual fragrance for those days when you're in jeans and a T-shirt, and you're not doing anything or seeing anyone special, but still want to smell really nice. It starts off quite strong, and smells like a super sweet, yet spicy, baby powder. I do find it a bit overwhelming at first, but it mellows out not too long after and ends up smelling like sweet, creamy baby …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/06/2011

Such a great and necessary(!) product for those of us with oily skin. They do exactly what they're supposed to do: suck up all the excess oil. Packaging is a little flimsy, but it's a minor negative. Men definitely appreciate this product too! My husband and brother keep a pack of these, and my male coworkers will ask for a sheet if they see me using one (I'm not ashamed!). I think …Read more

Fragrances - Michael Kors - Very Hollywood

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/06/2011

Some might find this fragrance to be too strong, but to me, it's a tame version of the original Michael Kors. In a way, Very Hollywood might be more wearable, but again only because it's a tame white floral. It might be a good introductory into white floral fragrances, so it could work well for teenagers or people who like white floral scents, but find most too overpowering. As for me …Read more

Fragrances - Parlux - Jessica Simpson - Fancy

5.0

Jan/03/2011

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite perfumes; definitely in my top 5 and is also the best gourmand fragrance l've come across (at least considering the price). To me and on me, it smells of vanilla, caramel, and soft florals. Very nice and easy to wear.

I wore this for the first time to work the other day, and two of my male co-workers complmented me on my scent. One of …
