I wouldn't wear this perfume if it was the last fragrance on earth. It smells terrible, generic and well, nothing notable in a good way about it.. The bottle is cute, but not a scent I can recommend. I don't notice any of the notes described. Another fail for Avon and will probably be discontinued judging by the lack of reviews on their website.

Fragrances - Avon - Imari Blossom

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/16/2013

This was one of those additions that probably shouldn't have been. It reminds me of Avon floral fails from 20 years ago. Imari Seduction is way better, imo. But, as always, it's up to personal choice and preference. I suggest not trusting those little sniff swatches in the brochure. They almost all smell the same and I'm not sure why Avon does that. What I do is buy the purse …Read more

I've been eying this color for quite some time and finally got a coupon so I went for it. The color isn't like other nudes I own. It's quite different on my lips. More of a touch of coral in it. I'm glad it has no pink in it, however. It is a unique color for me and I think it would suit warm skin tones. The texture seems a tiny bit gritty and there is a sweet smell and a …Read more

Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - Eye Enhancers - Major Distraction

This trio caught my eye the most. It has a soft, shimmery teal, a darker matte brown and a matte pale pink. The colors are beautiful together. I especially like the teal. I use the included applicator, which is surprisingly good quality, with the pointy tip and use the teal as an eyeliner. It shows up more blue than green teal but still brings out the green in my brown eyes. I think this teal …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Select Cover-Up

Created with Sketch.

Jul/26/2012

After seeing several youtube gurus using this product, I thought what the heck and ordered it when they were having free 2 day shipping. However, I was terribly disappointed with Select Cover Up. First of all, the shade didn't match the same shade in the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation. The concealer was much lighter than the foundation and left my skin looking ghostly and ashy. It also dries …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Concealer

The perfect matte concealer. Tried the concealer in the tube (Select Cover-up) and hated it. It was hard to blend and dried too quickly. Pro Longwear is amazing. It does dry pretty quickly but still leaves time to blend it out with fingers. I don't use a brush for this and my fingers work perfectly. It dries to a matte finish and is amazing for under-eyes and redness around the nose. It …Read more

If I could create a personal fragrance, this would be it. I've been looking for a vanilla-ey fragrance that wasn't too strong or sweet and that didn't smell burnt or plasticky. This is it! I really love it and I plan on wearing it everyday. I purchased the 1 oz. at Ulta for $36. I think it's great and doesn't smell too "young" either. The bottle is adorable and …Read more

Thought this smelled good in the bottle so I sprayed it on my wrist and oh my. It really smells awful. The bottle is so beautiful so I was really hoping to find a true summery fragrance. This stuff smells like honeysuckles and water lilies. I don't smell anything like what the description states...Top Notes: Japanese Pear, Bergamot, Orange Blossom Heart Notes: White Peony Petals, Gardenia …Read more

Styling Products - Redken - Align 12 Protective Straightening Lotion

May/14/2012

My stylist used this on my hair kind of as you would use a mousse. I have very thick, wavy hair that is medium long. The kind of thick that causes every stylist to comment on how thick it is. This product is amazing and has tamed my waves and frizz. I don't typically straighten it, but this balm works wonders on my hair even after blow drying on high heat. I use one half pump and spread it …Read more

Polishes - Pure Ice - Nail Polish - Fast Lane

A gorgeous shimmery, soft golden almost champagne color. Very nice for summer and would be great for every day wear. Goes well with short nails. Worked best with two thin coats and Seche Vite top coat. Polish is not gloppy at all. Just make sure the coats are thin or you will get streaks. Nice, pleasant surprise for under $2 at Walmart.
