I don't really have large pores, but I tried a sample of this foundation and was wowed: its consistency is soft and creamy, glides on perfectly and leaves a velvety, light and glowy finish. Just perfect for my skin. Also, it lasted through a hard workday and a workout and my skin still looked good!
I'll purchase a full bottle as soon as I finish one of my current three on rotation

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Allure: 97, Incandescente

I love everything about this lipstick.
First, the formulation: this is my 7th Rouge allure purchase, I think it's the best lipstick I've ever tried (and I'm a lipstick junkie!). Smooth, color exact, velvety, stays put and lasts until you get tired of it. Plus, the push package is ever so practical and original!
About this lovely orangey-red shade, I love it so much that I …

Fragrances - Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Perfumes - Fleur de Comores

Apr/03/2013

Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier being a bit like the Bond n° 9 of Europe (it makes a lot of new fragrances every year and all are very different) Fleur des Comores belongs to the L'Invitation au Voyage collection. The main idea behind this fragrance is to portray vanilla in a different twist, taking out the bakery accent and replacing it with some white flowers/green notes freshness with …Read more

Fragrances - Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Abricot

Apr/02/2013

Vanille abricot is one of my all time favourites (especially for spring) and my favourite of all Comptoir fragrances (I own quite a bunch).
It's a feisty fruity vanilla (who knew!) with brilliant notes of jackfruit and papaya, which make it a little bit more "citrusy".
It smells like candy but never gets cloying.
I recommend it.

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Byredo Gypsy Water

Mar/31/2013

I would define Gypsy Water as a fragrance for the fragrance shy, as it is very feeble, almost undetectable I'd say, and discreet.
This alone makes it a very elegant fragrance, if only... I could smell it!
Byredo house defines this as a Woody Aromatic fragrance for women and men (it's more masculine than feminine). Similar to a cologne, just a little bit deeper on the aromatic …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Mona di Orio--Oiro edp

Mar/30/2013

This is a magic irresistible fragrance that really manages to create the olfactory version of the color gold ("Oiro" is the Portuguese word for Gold).
The prominent notes are green mandarin, sweet pea, spices, jasmine absolute, olibanum, heliotrope, vetiver, ylang-ylang, immortelle absolute, cedarwood, musk and amber.

I love sweet pea: this delicate flower, which comes …

Patchouli & Rose = perfect marriage.
I love my Hippie Rose, although I know it's nothing original: Frederic Malle Portrait of A Lady and L'Artisan Parfumeur Voleur de Roses come to my mind.
I love Hippie Rose for its elegant neatness and simplicity, the same I find in all compositions by Heeley; all of them are extremely clean, accurate and balanced in combining various …

Mar/27/2013

I love the datura note in fragrances (although I've never smelled the actual flower) and I cherish my Serge Lutens Datura Noir as much as I appreciate my favourite nose, Keiko Mecheri, and her own copycat... er, version of Datura Blanche.
The composition is rather different, in that there isn't any coconut note in the Maitre version: the opening notes are lily-of-the-valley, Amalfi …

Fragrances - Chloé - See By Chloe EDP

fromGother

Mar/27/2013

See is a very different fragrance from other Chloés and I suspect it was creating with the exact purpose of reaching a younger - probably more remunerative - public. The new fragrance, signed by perfumer Michel Almairac is defined by Chloé as chic, elegant and energetic floral - fruity.
The composition opens with fresh notes of bergamot and apple blossom, which is very different from the …

Fragrances - L'Artisan Parfumeur - La Chasse aux Papillons

This fragrance, created by Anne Flipo in 1999, has got the most evocative and beautiful name of all fragrance: La Chasse aux Papillons, Chasing Butterflies. It's fun to guess how a butterfly should smell like, but to me, this fragrance that I've worn for five years smells exactly like a butterfly.
Truth is, it does smell like a blooming, sultry white flowers garden under the spring …
