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

Skincare - Face - Vanicream - Cleansing Bar

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 …

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - EverPure Moisture Shampoo

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 …

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Caviar Stick Eye Colour - Jungle

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

Treatments (Face) - Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Cream - Skin Protectant

For those who for their own reasons despise this product it's worth explaining the history. This was developed by a physician for burn victims needing a barrier balm to seal in hydration while soothing damaged skin and protecting new forming skin. It worked for that and beyond.
Also, at one time many years ago we did not have as many lovely skincare options as we do today. As much as I …

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Danny & Sandy 4 Ever!

I love, love, love OPI and just about any deep murky gunmetal gray. This one is especially lovely as it has a distinct denim blue undertone with mid tone gray. The finish is shimmery and has depth but looks best in natural light, IMO.
Part of the disasterous Grease collection I bought this for color only. And the fact it was $3.00 at my local Ocean State Odd Lot. Check them out, they have …

As usual for me I discovered this brand during a Hautelook event. Known more for her cat eye stencils than lipstick I was hesitant to try this matte lipstick. As there are numerous other great brands out there I figured this brand would be no better or worse.
Pros:
All US made .
Paraben and Talc free.
Loooong wearing, extremely matte.
Color range limited to wearable …
