I love Revlon Red polish. It's a beautiful true red color reminiscent of 50's Bombshells. I love the retro-red look & even have my nails done in a slightly pointed oval like gals did back then. I have acrylic nails and take this into the nail salon w/me so I don't worry about polish chipping. I did take off one lippie for this reason: it must be because of the amount of …Read more

Eye Shadow - NARS Cosmetics - Abyssinia

I really like NARS eyeshadows. They have a great pigmentation and texture. I bought Abyssinia because I had run out of a similar color eyeshadow in a trio that I bought a while back from another brand. I decided after that -- and after seeing multiple trios of different brands of eyeshadows accumulated in my makeup box because one of the colors is now gone -- that I would stick to buying …Read more

I'm on my third tube of this. I love a brighter classic red & I especially love one that I don't have to worry about bleeding, getting on my chin or getting on my teeth. I also like that you can go glossy or matte w/this. A tube of this lasts me almost two months. A bit pricey compared to a regular tube of lipstick but, for me, worth it not to have to deal w/the other hassles of …Read more

I'm a BIG classic perfume fanatic. I was a bit skeptical too when I heard they had tweaked No. 5 as I don't like most modern perfumes & don't own a bottle of Allure of Chance. I read good reviews and went into Nordstrom to sample. I was in LOVE. It reminded me of the way I remembered No. 5 from my childhood. I have the Eau de Parfum but I had to have a bottle of this. I …Read more

Toners - CLARINS - Extra Comfort Toning Lotion for Dry/Sensitive Skin

Apr/21/2008

I just returned this today after using it for a little over a week & got the toner w/Chamomile for normal to dry skin. I had such high hopes for this after having no success w/L'Occitanes toner w/shea butter extract. I usually really like Clarin's skincare products. This was slightly better than L'Occitane's toner on my skin but still stung & left my skin feeling …Read more

I have fair skin & this is OKAY on me -- it's not bad but I'm not in love w/it either. For some reason, I always think my skin is darker than it really is & I thought this would hardly show up on me -- boy was I wrong! One poster, who also had fair skin, commented that she tried Deep Throat & really liked that. I may try that next time.

I actually found out about Dovima nail polish while searching for some pics of her on Google. I usually don't give a rat's derrier about models but when I saw her on Funny Face (as Marion) I thought she stole the show for the short time she was on screen. So, of course, I had to go & get myself a bottle!!! NARS & Sephora describe this as a "tomato" red. This is a …Read more

Apr/07/2008

First of all I'm a real sucker for a great name. I just loved that it was called Bombshell!!! I was worried because I read mixed reviews. Some people said they loved it & some people said the color didn't go with their skin tone. I LOVE the way this looks on me! It's a silvery, platinumy light gray. & Is just very flattering on me. I pair this w/a dark not so warm …Read more

Jan/01/2008

I just ordered this from Sephora because I got a gift certificate. I'll, admit, while I like the fragrance (it reminds me of Hawaii), it's not a unique or original fragrance. -- A very tropical smelling perfume with a very faint hint of Georgio. At least 10 other companies make perfumes that either smell identical or very similar. (An annoying trend in perfume for the last almost 20 …Read more

Fragrances - Yves Rocher - Yves Rocher Gardenia Eau de Toilette [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/21/2007

Finally a perfume called Gardenia that ACTUALLY smells like gardenias!!! I read the reviews on this sight & decided to try it. Yves Rocher was having a 2 for 1 sale vs. the 1/2 priced sale they had previously. @ 18.50 USD for 2 bottles I figured if it wasn't my cup of tea, that would be okay. But I was not disappointed! Took me right back to my grandmothers house when she would put …Read more
