Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Profumum - Vanitas

Lovers of vanilla...do I have your attention???? Your search is over, the most velvety, penetrating vanilla ever, this one takes first place over my beloved Tihota. The blend of orange flowers, sandalwood, myrrh, and the special tenacious vanilla, delivers a deep emerging gorgeous scent. This has major sillage, lasts 8+ hrs on my skin. The Profumum line is pricey, but the quality is impeccable …Read more

Cleansers - Lancôme - Eau Fraiche Douceur

Jan/25/2015

I love the theory behind micellar waters for cleansing, and have been using Bioderma for at least a year or longer, I decided to stray and try the Lancôme micellar water. Pros....love the smell, the refreshed feeling, but on occasion, I noticed on the nights I used retin a, the next morning there would be slight stinging to my face and neck. Also this product leaves my face feeling a little …Read more

Styling Products - Schwarzkopf - Osis+ Dust it mattifying powder

First off, a little bit about my hair, short, moderate thickness, layered curls. Not oily.
This product feels tacky, almost like a dry glue if that makes sense. I feel it in my hair, at the root where it is placed. I don't wash my hair everyday, but with this product, I must!
I love volume in hair, and maybe for fine, thin hair this works differently. The deal breaker for me is …

Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Lip Color - Pale Pink

A neutral nude pink, not blue based, no coral undertones , no beige or brown in this one. A beautiful YLBB, somewhat matte, someone with dry lips might find this drying, but a touch of a pearly lipgloss fixes that potential problem. I do not find this drying. This is long lasting on me. Not a barbie pink, no shimmer or frost. I am fair skinned, and this is perfect for me, the only skin tone that …Read more

I bought this soley based on reviews, and while this product does moisturize, I honestly can not say it done anything miraculous for my nails. CeraVe or Aquaphor is just as good in my opinion. The cost is crazy, for the little round compact you get. For that fact , almond oil, olive oil or any moisturizing oil would suffice. Sorry Dior, won't be repurchasing :))

My love affair continues with yet another Guerlain fragrance! This house rarely disappoints and my collection is heavy with Guerlain. I sampled Tomka Imperiale when it first launched in 2010, and was not "taken" as I have been with others. Fast forward 4 years, I sample again, and must say I am over the MOON for this ! The opening for me is gauzey, balmy with just a pinch of mint …Read more

Cleansers - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Micellar Cleansing Water and Makeup Remover Solution

5.0

Feb/22/2014

I have used this product intermittently now for about 1 year. My skin is fair, normal to dry, no special concerns other than fighting the war on aging! What impresses me about this product is it thoroughly removes ALL makeup, with no other product needed. My face never feels dry after cleansing with this, it is soft and supple. I am a Retin A user which can make skin somewhat sensitive, the …Read more

Bought this solely based on color that I seen on a blog, first off the color your seeing on the blogs is not how it looks on the nail, a greyest slightly mauve cast, no glimmer, flat and dull.
Ohhhh.....did I mention THICK? Ohhh my, very hard to work with:(. I think this is one of the jellies, had no clue it would be so difficult, not to mention a long drying time. Still want to give this …

Liquid - Koh Gen Do - Maifanshi Moisture Foundation

Created with Sketch.

Mar/07/2013

Well....I have been on a search for a new foundation, sometimes I think as we get older, our skin care and makeup needs to be adjusted. I have used MANY brands mainly high end foundations, so I thought I would give the Koh Gen Do a try.
First, let me say the texture is lovely. I am normal to dry, and this provided good moisture without oiliness. No scent that I could detect. Color choice …

Mascara - CHANEL - Le Volume De Chanel Mascara

Dec/13/2012

Let it be known I have bought many $$$$ mascaras. ...along with many brands of drugstore mascaras as well.
HANDS DOWN...the best mascara I have ever used. My lashes are semi short/medium, not sparse, but not full. One coat does the trick. Blackest black, velvety look. Adds dramatic length and volume for me. I was concerned with the brush being a big brush that this might be a clumpy mess to …
