Light is the fairest color in this product and being PPP I expected this to work for me. Not only is it not light it has a distinct sallow/orange undertone. The color looked far too dark for me. Then the off putting scent got to me. Not floral but a laboratory chemical note that lingers. That didn’t agree with me at all and is totally unnecessary. The actual product is not at all moisturizing and …Read more

On sale at my local Harmon Drug for $1.87! I bought four different colors :
Coral Minerals: Standard light warm coral. Did not flatter my fair complexion.
Dose of Roses: Standard cool mauve pink that looks nice in the tube but rather juvenile on my lips.
Magentle Formula: Pretty in the tube but on my lips looks like a deeper garish version of pepto bismol. I wanted to wear this for …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Berdoues Oud Wa Misk

Opens very, very masculine in spite of it’s unisex designation. Some say this has a berry note. I didn’t experience that. Thankfully.
Back to the opening, to MY nose this has a shaving cream meets gin meets vanilla meets men’s deodorant burst.
Not femme at all, manly, yes, but not sensual manly.
After the alcohol dries there is a distinct resinous note that could be a cousin to Annick …

FYI as far as I know most if not all of the Rouge Rouge line have been discontinued. However, I bought mine on Hautelook and I reckon unsold stock may eventually end up at your local Nordstrom Rack. That said I purchased 3 shades:
1: Sweet Desire: Shiseido describes this as a peony shade. No. Not mine. This color is straight up mauve. I actually dislike most mauve but this one will look great …

I did not care for this mascara at all. I disliked that my lashes had to be free of any cream, sunscreen or other cosmetic in order for this to adhere properly. I applied this to cleansed dry lashes and still disliked the outcome. This required many layers to acheive adequate effect and on me flaked terribly. I bought a beautiful shade of royal blue that although pretty didn’t look dramatic …Read more

One of if not the last remaining drugstore cleansers that is neither expensive or liquid.
I will admit it, when it comes to cleansing my face I’m old school soap and water and low maintenance. I also despise liquid facial/body cleansers.
Vanicream is nearly scent free, not harsh and cleanses without leaving a peculiar film or scent.
I use this on my face and neck after removing …

I have a love hate relationship with lipgloss. And highlighters, but that’s an entirely different subject.
I became fascinated with this product because of the rather minimalist packaging. I rarely purchase DS lipgloss because the product is covered with so much ”grafitti” text it’s embarrassing. Not with this.
I purchased Soft Rose 08 as it was devoid of shimmer and was the least …

Sulphate free is the only redeeming feature of this horrid shampoo.
I have long fine blond hair and used this in conjunction with the coordinating conditioner.
The scent was the first off putting experience, strong and evergreen smelling, but the condition my hair was left was the deal breaker.
My hair was brittle and literally straw like after washing with this. As I have always …

Although most would never think Jungle would flatter a blond blue eyed PPP it surely does!
This is a fantastic swampy murky deep olive green/hint of brown with just enough shimmer to make the color very sexy.
The whites of my eyes look super white when wearing this the way classic blue red lippies optically make teeth appear whiter.
I use this as a liner and then on my upper lid I …

I had the great fortune of finding this sealed and pristine at HomeGoods for $9.99! I had been on the fence regarding buying this, the $38.00 price point seems high for a product not easily found in stores. I have seen Algenist skincare at Ulta but never products of interest to me of which this is. I have seen Algenist on I beleive QVC, this looked nice but not essential. I know Hautelook has …Read more
