I've used Rimmel lip glosses, mascara, and blush and I'm really liking their products so far. The glosses in particular are really nice and not too sticky. This is my favourite blush at the moment. I have been trying to find a good shade for awhile. I have very fair skin with some light freckles and I tend to like pinkish hues. I was using L'Oreal Bare Naturale in Pinched Pink …Read more

Dang I love this fragrance. Usually I don't have a problem with words...but I'm not sure how to describe this. I guess it's not surprising that I like this because I'm seeing that, as I try more and more different scents, I tend to gravitate towards more 'unisex' and possibly woodier scents (but not so spicy). For example, while an iris scent, I truly love …Read more

This a really beautiful fragrance, but not one that is an everyday sort of scent for me (for reasons that I'll try to make clear here) so it gets 4 lipsticks (for now anyway). The best way for me to articulate how I feel about this fragrance is to do as others have done here and compare it with Un Lys, another wonderful lily fragrance by Serge Lutens.
First of all, I can't …

Amazing. I know nothing about irises or iris perfumes, but I am in love with this fragrance. I'm embarrassed to say that when I first got a sample of this, I hated it. I thought it smelled like dry dirt. That was my impression - very dry. But this was when I was into fruitier scents. So I shelved it. For about a year. Then one winter day, I was thinking that I needed to try something …Read more

I really like this perfume. It's one of my favourites at the moment. Last summer I was really into Saffron James Nani, but now that it's winter I need something less light and in bloom. Eau de Charlotte has been in my sample collection for quite some time. I purchased a sample mostly for sentimental reasons - I liked the fact that Annick Goutal made it for her daughter Charlotte. …Read more

This is a beautiful fragrance. I have a small 1mL sample and on first sniff from the vial I thought it was gorgeous. However, I'm new to fragrances and wasn't familiar with the smell of jasmine at the time I received this sample. So when I first applied nani I was put off by the slightly stinky scent that jasmine can have. As a result of that first experience, I shelved the vial …Read more

I love this. It smells like none of the 'mainstream' fragrances I've smelled in the past. Serge Lutens un Lys on first application smells just like the lilies my boyfriend gave me once. But he said it smells like potpourri. I guess I can kind of understand that. However, I think un Lys smells exactly like a lily...it even smells kind of green, damp and juicy to me. On the dry …Read more

I've been trying to learn about perfume more lately, as I really like certain scents but know next to nothing about the composition of perfume, nor what makes a good one. I bought a sample of Miss Boucheron from ebay after reading the reviews of it here at MUA. When I first smelled this perfume from the bottle it seemed to resemble some kind of household cleaner and I was hesitant to try …Read more

This is an okay scrub. However, it's not my favourite. I like the way it smells and the fact that it's all natural and made by a small company. On the other hand, I think that the exfoliating particles are too big and they irritate my skin. I also think that this scrub is too drying for my skin - I feel like my face has been stripped after I use it. I experienced redness and more …Read more

This is a great product. I use it to smooth my hair and add texture. I used to use it a lot more when my hair was much shorter, and I found it to be it amazing for keeping style and adding texture. This wax doesn't have that gross sticky, heavy feeling that many waxes have. In this way, it's great for fine hair as it doesn't way hair down. This product leaves hair soft to the …Read more
