Fragrances - Prada - Infusion d'Iris EDP

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2011

Infusion d'Iris has broken my previously marked dislike of "powdery" fragrances. I simply love it, and I'm not sure why, considering it's really not in my normal genre of perfume. It's light, airy, and somehow still reminiscent of incense at the same time. Once my miniature is done, I'll definitely be looking to buy a full sized bottle.

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/04/2011

I have to admit I'm writing this because I saw the review below me and I love Purity myself. (No personal offense to anyone meant!) My skin is super sensitive and reacts to foaming agents. I used to have acne as a teenager and went on Accutane, which helped immensely. But ever since then, I have had to be pretty careful about what I use on my face. Two cleansers work for me very well: Purity …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Palette - Greed [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Jul/04/2011

Please tell me why I've been shelling out money on pricier eyeshadows when these palettes exist. I mean, seriously! The pigmentation is amazing, especially in the matte colors and the glittery black one. I love the texture; these are quite easy to blend. I haven't used an eyeshadow without a primer in years (I use MAC's Painterly paint pot) so I can't really attest to how long …Read more

Fragrances - Jean Paul Gaultier - Classique Eau de Toilette

4.0

Apr/23/2011

I do love the Classique EDT! Interestingly, the EDP is too much on my skin- I can't stand it. However, the EDT is one of my favorite perfumes and it smells wonderful. It has a warm combination of vanilla, amber and rose, and I disagree strongly that it has a "brash" or "old lady" smell. The trail is great too: distinct but not cloying …Read more

I will gladly add to the glowing reviews of this blush! I didn't mean to buy blush the other day, seeing as I just bought a new pan of MAC Peaches... but I did. I am human. This looked so pretty. When I got home, I swatched it immediately and thought, "Uh-oh, this is PURE glitter." However! Once I used it for the first time on my cheeks, I fell in love. It doesn't have glitter …Read more

Yowza, what bad reviews!

<br><br>I just got this last week to replace my Dior powder/concealer routine, which was great in winter but now has my face looking unattractively shiny in spring. I was looking for a fragrance free, lightweight foundation that I could mix with my moisturizer in order to make a tinted moisturizer. I never wear straight-up foundation, so this has …

Concealers - COVERGIRL - Olay Simply Ageless [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/10/2011

This is a good concealer for the price and the type. I am NC15 and the lightest shade works well. It has a good consistency- doesn't settle into lines, doesn't clump, and doesn't cake. I think the lasting power is respectable! I use it under a powder, so that does help. I strongly doubt that it would actually stay for very long on its own, but what product …Read more

Fragrances - Dior - J'adore Eau de Parfum

Apr/05/2011

I don't actually own J'adore (yet). I am house-sitting right now for a friend, and she has a bottle of the EDP sitting on her bathroom counter that looks a little, shall we say, sad and underused. So, me being me, I've been sneaking sprays every day for the past week. I'm not bathing myself in it- that would be really rude because it's not my perfume- but I have been …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam Gaga 2

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/03/2011

Okay, I'm starting to look like quite the MAC addict with all my reviews... which isn't really the case... though yeah, they do make quite a few things I'm very fond of. :) One thing I LOVE about MAC is their lipsticks. All of mine, except for one, are from MAC. The one that isn't is from an Italian brand called Kiko. Anyway- Viva Glam Gaga II is spectacular. I HATED the first …Read more

Lip Liners - MAC Cosmetics - Lip Pencil - Subculture

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/03/2011

This is my only lip liner, but I do love it. It's like a peachier, slightly more nude version of my own lips. I bought it paired with Viva Glam Gaga II so that I could warm it up a bit (although I can wear the VGGII on its own if I want a very nice "mod" look). However, I can and do wear Subculture under Love Nectar in particular, and sometimes by itself with a clear gloss or lip …Read more
