Fragrances - Gucci - Flora by Gucci EDT

I received mine as a sample, and I hope that no one would just buy this without testing it as a sample first because this is not a fragrance for everyone. Like a lot of reviewers said, this is a young, girly fragrance but its not in the price range for young, girly people. This is something that a teenage girl should be wearing, and by teenage I mean 14-16. I'm in my mid-twenties, I have no …Read more

Fragrances - Coty - Beckham Signature - Women

I, like many reviewers on here, got mine as a sample. I liked it okay, but its not me. It smelled cheap. Like something that somebody who was buying perfume with their allowance might wear. I don't know if this fragrance has any perfume oils in it honestly, because mostly it just smelled like alcohol. Once the alcohol smell was gone it did smell a little bit like cough syrup like somebody …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - L'Oreal Paris - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

I don't know why L'Oreal likes to give their products such long names but Studio Secrets Magical blah blah blah is a mouthful. So I'm just gonna say primer, because that's what it is. As far as good primers go, this one is on the low end of the price spectrum. I got mine with a coupon at Target, I think I paid like $13 and some change for it, compared to the $20 and $30 …Read more

I so love this. I like to use Goody headache powders and mix with a little bit of gentle cleanser, let it sit for about 10 minutes, then rinse gently in a circular motion to exfoliate a little, but not very hard. I do it once a month, sometimes more. My skin always looks so great afterwards.

Eh. This is one of the most mediocre mascaras ever. Everybody makes a big deal about how great it is, just like Great Lash, because of all the hype about it. I have looong eyelashes and this didn't do more for them than any other cheap mascara.

I am so in love with Absynthe right now. I bought some on sale from my friend who sells Avon, and its my new favorite scent. I wear it almost every day. My husband is obsessed with it. I think the fragrance might be discontinued now, but I know that its possible to get some on ebay and Avon might still be carrying it in the sale until it runs out. It is amazing. Its not a floral little girly …Read more

I don't normally buy foundations because I don't need them but I had a coupon for this one and I decided to buy it. Normally I wear no face makeup at all and only do my eyes and blush with a bit of lipgloss. But a few years ago I liked Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse and I thought this would be similar. It is similar in some ways. The texture is a little more slippery but other …Read more

I have used this several times. I've never had a problem. I have really dry skin so I only use it a few times a month. Sometimes it does sting just a bit but it doesn't bother me. My face feels so fresh and clean afterwards!
