Great stuff! I've been wearing this as foundation for two weeks, and I'm very happy with it.<br>
I have Translucent, and it's a nice match for my NC15-20 skin. It's very neutral - I don't think anyone will find it to be too yellow or too pink. It's really almost colourless.<br>
The finish is sheer but does even out redness nicely. Matte, but not …

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Jicky

I never expected to like Jicky, much less love it. I am not a lavender or vanilla fan, typically - but this is love. (This review is of the parfum - I have not tried the other concentrations.)<p>
On me, Jicky starts out with lavender, bergamot, and rosemary, and soon develops into a deeper, warmer vanilla, lavender, woody, slightly leathery, incensey, musky masterpiece …

Fragrances - Kiehl's - Original Musk EDT

Mostly ylang and patchouli on me. I was hoping for a little more musk.<p>

What this EDT does on me, really, is leave the perfect space in which to put musk. But no musk.

I get warm soft vanilla, rubber, a little sandalwood and tobacco, and black leather from this one. I don't usually like vanilla scents, but the rubber and leather keep this from being too sugary. It's more smooth than anything. Makes me sniff my wrists constantly. (Every now and then it smells like baby doll head, though - cracks me up!)<p>
I'd like to smell this on a …

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Orange Blossom Cologne

Oct/02/2005

This is a nice cologne that smells (on me) of oranges, some orange blossom, and jasmine. So while I get the feeling of walking in an orange grove, I get more OJ out of this one than floral. Orange blossoms are one of the few florals that I like, and this just isn't what I'm looking for in an orange blossom scent.<p>
I can see how this would be nice layered with other scents …

Coffee beans, incense, woods, vetyver, and an earthy note. I *love* this scent, but it disappears too quickly for me to give it five lipsticks. However, I love it so much that I'll buy it again (and will have apply so often that I'll actually use up bottles).<p>
This is not a sugary, vanillic coffee. This is rich and as un-foody as can be.<p>
Somewhere in the …

I got a bottle of Super Line Preventor in this summer's Allure Beauty Box. Found a $47.50 HG hydrator in a $15-20 box of goodies. Thanks, Allure!<p>
I am really loving this stuff. I've used other serums before, some with more hyaluronic acid than this one, but have never found one that hydrated my skin and left it so smooth. This stuff seems to soothe my skin, hydrate it, and …

Aug/04/2005

I can't believe I'm writing a positive review for an eye treatment product. I am the biggest skeptic and have alway subscribed to the idea that eye cremes and treatments are wastes of money.<p>
I've been using One for Eyes since the last week in June, and I really have seen a reduction in fine lines. I never really had lines till this past year, and I felt like I'd …

Aug/01/2005

I am almost finished with my first bottle of this stuff, and I'll definitely be repurchasing.<p>
This winter my skin didn't break out much, but the pores on my chin, nose, and forehead were more clogged than ever. Once the weather warmed up a little, I switched back to Sage Regular Facial Shampoo and added Mild Clarifying Lotion to my (simple) routine. The combination seems …

This fresh tomato spray isn't quite as perfect as Votivo's candle, but it's pretty nice! It can be used as a perfume or a room spray, and it's a very bright, cheerful scent. The lasting power isn't amazing, but it's cheap enough to keep spraying. I hope to try other TC scents.
