I hate to write a bad review, but this is one of the worst mascaras I have tried in a long time. Although it does coat heavily and gives thick lashes you are lucky to get it on right. Even fresh from the package it is a clumpy, sludgey mess. The applicator and container are from hell. Even the small pore entrance to the barrel does not stop the super fat wand from getting super heavily coated - …Read more

This is addictive. It's one of those products that probably does nothing for you, but smells so nice and is so refreshing mentally that it is worth every penny. I was told to use this instead of a moisturizer before getting my makeup professionally done for my wedding day. It's somewhat moisturizing and is a good hold-over until I get to the makeup artist's chair. So, because of …Read more

Apparently I like aldehydes and I love this and Chanel No. 5. Smell similar to me, very powdery without being dull and cloying. Spicy and lively this is a sexy perfume, I cannot imagine being 10 years old wearing it! This screams all woman to me. Lovely, different, classic, might even wear it on my honeymoon ;-)

This smells exactly like an elegant version of Bounce drier sheets. Like get a fresh box and put your face directly into the box - voila, this perfume. Needless to say I love it and look forward to the opportunity to wear it next!

A verrrrrrrry soapy metallic rose, not much else going on - maybe a touch of lemony talc similar to Talco Delicato lingering underneath. Nice enough I suppose if that's your thing but I could not imagine wearing this - might as well just shower with Irish Spring.

I absolutely adore the Marie Antoinette-ish bottle with the baby blue and little gold bees. So cute. I fell for this scent right away, it really harkened back to my days of wearing Sage Onyx and Stila Creme Bouquet. I felt like I was layering them. There is a powdery quality to this. And it definitely smells like the beach. I completely get that marine note which isn't meant to be there …Read more

Like all Yves Saint Laurent makeup this is in stunningly beautiful packaging, and has a delicious smell and taste. It is ultimately one of the classiest glosses available. It is a gorgeous ambery, copperish color - essentially liquid gold. This is beautiful when you want to look bronzey. It can go on plain lips for a bronzey shimmery look or over your favorite liner for some more oomph. It is …Read more

This is such a luxurious and delightful gloss. I love gold glosses and this one, the pale pink with gold flecks, is just divine for my skin tone. Plus you can wear it plain for the daytime or put it over a heavy lined lip (blended of course) and it looks like the most gorgeous and expensive of lipsticks. Try it over Chanel's niude precision lip liner. #10 Golden Gloss will never be …Read more

Who knew mascara could smell so good. And the packaging? WOW! Super luxurious and incredible mascara. Makes my lashes sooo long and black. When I use it over precurled brushed lashes it goes on beautifully and extends my lashes forever with great thickness to boot. However, if I slap it on without eyelash prep it does have a spidery tendency. It's incredible though and perfect for that …Read more
