Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Novae Plus Bird

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2007

I found this fragrance in Florida on International Drive, Perfumeland. Novae Plus is a French fragrance company that is hard to find except online or at select boutiques. This bird bottle is packed in a cute box and is available in several colors: pink, red, green, purple, blue. I have the purple bird. This is a floral spice. The ingredients aren't published, so it is difficult to describe …Read more

Fragrances - REVLON - Flair

Aug/21/2007

This is a nice bottle for a drugstore perfume. I think Lancome's Hypnose inspired the twisted bottle design and the ingredients, since I see similiarities. I got a sample from the drugstore and enjoyed it so much, I had to go back for the bottle. I paid about $30 for a 1.7 oz edp, which is affordable. This isn't exactly a mature scent, but it's not for little girls either. Nice …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - shu uemura - Eyelash Curler

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/16/2007

This curler is a cult favorite among makeup artists and junkies. I paid $18 for mine 4 months ago at Sephora, and I have been comparing performance to my Revlon curler. I don't understand the hype. Shu Uemura is overrated. I have Caucasian eyes, yet this curler pinches me as often as my Revlon. Both curl lashes well. The only difference between them besides the higher price is increased …Read more

Fragrances - Elizabeth Taylor - Diamonds and Emeralds

This is a delightful floral-fruity-coconut perfume that is so distinctive, there's not another one like it. I bought it dirt cheap at Perfumania with my daughter, along with the rest of the Diamonds collection. You won't smell exactly like everyone else's floral-fruity-gourmand perfume.

Fragrances - Giorgio Beverly Hills - Wings

I bought this when it first came out in the 1990s, and I have just revisited it today. I like this very much, and I also like Eternity. It is strong, fruity floral and green, but is quite pretty if you use it sparingly. I concur with others that it is perfect for spring.

Fragrances - Annick Goutal - Les Nuits d'Hadrien

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/29/2007

Les Nuits d'Hadrien translates to Mediterranean Nights, and you travel to Tuscany, Italy where you imagine you are sitting underneath a cypress tree on a starry night. It is a sophisticated eau de parfum spicy floral with cypress, basil, cumin, ylang ylang, and white musk. Patchouli, vanilla and sandalwood form the base. This one has staying power, and it is expensive. Do not confuse Les …Read more

Fragrances - Valentino - Rock n Rose

4.0

May/16/2007

Valentino's latest scent has gotten a bad rap! It is light, fresh, and girly like Very Irresistable Givenchy. It opens with rose and dries down to fruits and florals. Don't expect it to be as complex as Shalimar, or as distinctive as the original launch of Angel. This is meant to be a nice daytime fragrance you can wear to work, polite and inoffensive. Once you understand that …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Liquid Facial Soap Extra Mild

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2007

I am dry, sensitive, pigmented and wrinkled with skintype 1. I just switched to this extra-mild formula after using Clinique's mild liquid soap. What a difference! I liked the mild, but my face got tight after washing, and my hands and cuticles peeled a lot. I was hesitant to buy the extra-mild because I feared it wouldn't remove my longwearing makeup, sunscreen and self-tanner as well …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Liquid Facial Soap - Mild

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2007

I am skintype 1, dry, sensitive, pigmented and wrinkled. I used this product for one month. It removed all of my longwearing makeup, sunscreen, eyemakeup and self-tanner beautifully. However, I recently switched to Clinique's extra-mild liquid soap because it is a better product for my dry skin. I wasn't exactly irritated by this soap, but my face felt drawn after washing, and my hands …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2007

This balm has a waxy feel that rinses completely away with no residue. It didn't break me out. It really does remove the tenacious sunscreens, self-tanners and long-wearing makeup as it claims on the label. I took off one lippie for eye irritation. Every time I use this, my eyes water for hours after, no matter how much I rinse. I always keep a jar handy for summer when I'm wearing the …Read more
