L.A. Colors 18 - color Eyeshadow palette, color- Strange Love -$2.49 Purple pallets are so hard to find and I've tried pricey ones and end up only using 1 or 2 colors in the palette. I finally just put together on my own with ABH singles.

I ordered this from Walgreens online when I was ordering some other things.This is really a decent small palette. Some of the colors are not …

Fragrances - Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Banane

30ml- $42.00
Launched in 2003. Top notes are orange, banana and whipped cream; middle notes are banana leaf and clover; base notes are vanilla and white rum.
A boozy vanilla with a distinctive tropical accord. The banana ( smells like banana taffy), fades in about 15 minutes and the final dry down on me is a tropical vanilla. It is very similar to Vanille Apricot, you definitely would …

One of my favorites! It curls, separates, thickens and lengthens. For days when I want a more natural look, I choose my all time favorite, Lancome Definicils but if I want more dramatic lashes this is one I always have on hand. The brush is fat, but not too bad, however it can be a challenge for me on my lower lashes so I often use another one for them. It never flakes, dries fast, stays on until …Read more

Candles - Unlisted Brand - Tyler Candle Company

I have bought Tyler candles off and on for many years. I think most are under priced and as good as many that are far more expensive. I read the reviews below and noticed that some said they burned dirty. Not now they don't. They put the comparable in price, Bath and Body Works candles to shame. BBW candles lately have been going down hill in my opinion. I do like the Eucalyptus Stress …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

I got this in 220, Natural Beige. I ordered it online and just took a guess on color based on swatches online. The match was very good. It was so cheap that I expected to hate it and was pleasantly surprised that I didn't.. It does oxidize a little but not enough to make much of a difference. I do not like matte foundations at all and usually find they accentuate every pore and fine line …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Evyan White Shoulders Eau de Cologne

Classic, timeless, beautiful, feminine, unique…a fragrance made in a different era and made in America around 1945. Now, 73 years later, it is still around the most under priced fragrance ever.

White Shoulders was the first perfume that I loved. I discovered it when I was around 7 years old, on my grandmother’s dresser. My mother almost always wore Chanel No 5 and a couple of others …

$42.00 for 1 ounce

I do not have one redeeming thing to say about this foundation except that it is full coverage if you apply thickly. I hate everything about it. Two things I detest in a foundation is a bad scent and stickiness. This has both. I also don't like to be aware of it on my face and with this I am, all day long. The smell, chemical like, never goes away and it just …

This review is the the old formula made in Poland.
When I purchased it in June the packaging is now different and so is the formula. Previously they were made in Poland and had a 6 month expiration. Now it's made in china with a 24 month expiration. The formula is definitely not the same. NYX needs to be more transparent with formula changes. I highly doubt I will repurchase it …
