Lip Treatments - RoC - Enydrial Lip Balm

Jan/03/2016

This was my favorite for many years and I went through 15+ tubes. Recently, they changed it and it's awful. I called the company to complain and they admitted it's different. I had to jump through hoops to get them to refund my money for the last 2 tubes I bought, since the new one is TOTALLY different than before, and the packaging doesn't indicate it. Sigh.

Lip Treatments - Dr. Bronner's - Magic All-One! Organic Lip Balm - Naked

I absolutely LOVE this lip balm. I've tried so many products out there, expensive and cheap, and this is the best.

I am someone who hates lip balm to be scented.. and I don't just mean scented on purpose, but even if there is a natural type of smell, I can't use it. For example, I found the Lavera Sensitiv smelled like burnt carrots or something.

At first, I …

Fragrances - Frederic Malle - Une Rose

I haven't actually tried this perfume yet, but was hesitant to try it because a previous poster mentioned that the perfume uses castoreum absolute (a product from beavers.)

I emailed Frederic Malle themselves to ask if it is authentic castoreum that is used, and they replied with the following:

"The castoreum we use in "Une Rose" is not taken from animals …

Firstly, I just want to say that I am a HUGE Eminence fan. I'm using all Eminence products and I love it!!

I just ordered this product and have been using it for about a week.
It's unbelievable!!

Within a minute of putting it on, my skin feels tighter -- not drier in anyway, but just super toned and firmed. It feels moisturized but not at all greasy. Just …

Concealers - CHANEL - Pro Lumiere Correcteur Professional Finish Concealer ] [DISCONTINUED]

Sep/07/2010

I experienced the same problem as an earlier poster.

I live in Canada and was told that the Pro Lumiere isn't available here and that only the Eclat Lumiere is available in Canada.

My parents just went on a trip to Chicago and I asked my mom to pick me up one of the Pro Lumiere pens. She went to three different stores and at Saks Fifth Avenue the man at the Chanel …

I just bought this the other day because I loooove the smell of rose and this one smells really great.

The lady at the store said to rub it on before showering and then wash it off in the shower. It's supposed to leave your skin moisturized.

I used it and loved the smell. To be honest, I didn't really find my skin was any more moisturized than usual, but it …

I received a free sample of this at a department store and tried my hardest to find it cheaper elsewhere -- at the time, the only places I could find it were The Bay (Canadian department store) and on Macy's website.

Now it appears to be much easier to find. Needless to say, I paid $65 Canadian (I never buy perfumes full price normally).

Anyways, I really love this …

This is my HG of mascaras! I used to be a loyal fan of Maybelline Volum' Express, but this one prevents clumps much better!

The brush is nice and fat and really enhances every lash. I'm on my 6 or 7th tube of it and will continue to buy it!!!

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Hard as Wraps -- Sheer Pink Gloss

5.0

Aug/27/2008

Just tried this and LOVE it!

It has that sheer, translucent pink colour that everyone who gets manicures seems to have!

Went on SO SO SO smoothly, and dried very fast.... I'm the type of person who will always smudge my nail polish no matter what, and it didn't happen with this one.

Usually these light pink colours go on really streaky for me, but this …

Aug/27/2008

Bought this last week and finally got around to trying it, and so far, I love it!

I have very strong nails already, but I'm what you'd call a "picker" and I pick my cuticles with my nails, so my nails kind of split when they get to a certain length. This product has added an extra layer which helps stop the splitting. Went on easily, dried shiny, smooth and …
