Lipstick - NYC New York Color - Expert Last - Berry Me 442

Apr/19/2017

This is my HG berry lipstick for daytime. It's the only lipstick I have a backup of, which is saying a lot. I actually fear the day that this is discontinued, even though I already own so many lipsticks that I've never finished one- I STILL need a backup of Berry Me.

This dusty berry is not vampy at all which makes it great for daytime or more conservative settings like the …

Styling Products - Miss Jessie's - Pillow Soft Curls

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/20/2017

I adore Pillow Soft Curls. It smells like beach air and jasmine and it makes my natural curls less frizzy and way more defined. I can't afford it all the time at $25 per tube but when I can it makes me so happy. I just apply it on my combed, clean damp hair from root to tip, scrunch and let air dry.Plus it's formulated without potentially harmful additives. My HG.

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Coconut hand cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/20/2017

I love most things that are coconut scented, and this lightweight hand cream by the Body Shop is no exception. I say lightweight because it absorbs very easily into my hands and does not leave any kind of greasy finish at all but my hands feel softer and less dry. It also has a less firm/wetter consistency than most hand creams I have, including the Hemp hand cream by the same brand, and …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Nubian Heritage - Goats Milk and Chai Lotion with Rose Extract

5.0

Mar/13/2017

I loooove this lotion. Smells exactly like Flowerbomb as another reviewer noted. It really smells exactly like that sweet, orchid-dominant fruitchouli with a bitter tea note and a hint of sparkle. The scent is long lasting and noticeable but not cloying at all, provided you enjoy this type of sweet scent.

I can't believe this one smells like Flowerbomb and Patchouli & Buriti …

Lotions/ Creams - Nubian Heritage - Patchouli & Buriti

Mar/13/2017

This lotion smells like tangy fruits and dark patchouli. In other words, it smells exactly like Thierry Mugler's Angel. I actually bought this by accident because there were no testers out and I wanted the lotion that smells like Flowerbomb... turns out the "Flowerbomb one" was the Goat Milk & Chai, which I fortunately also purchased on a hunch.

Patchouli & …

Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Blueberry Body Butter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/09/2017

I was initially apprehensive about purchasing The Body Shop's Blueberry Body Butter, because I just gave away a tub of their Shea Intensely Moisturizing for Severly Dry Skin Body Cream due to fact that it contained parabens, and I looked at an ingredient list of and older formulation of the Blueberry Body Butter, and it ALSO contained parabens. Fortunately, the new formula does not list …Read more

Fragrances - Pacifica - Hawaiian Ruby Guava Spray Perfume

4.0

Feb/23/2017

Ruby Guava is cute, festive and silly. A tropical body wash type of scent with more umph than a body mist but the same type of abstract fruity vibe. I have the rollerball, which I wish would release more liquid with one swipe, but that's not a huge deal.

I love scents like these and this one is strong. It doesn't last as long as a designer edp, but it has more longevity than …

Fragrances - bodycology - Brown Sugar Vanilla Body Mist

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/10/2017

Bodycology Toasted Sugar (I have the newer packaging so the Vanilla has been omitted from the label even though the scent is basically the same) is a warm burned sugar vanilla musk type scent with a little milky fresh rice note like the one found in BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar, and a very noticeable sandalwood in the dry down.

After showering, my skin still smelled very distinctly of the …

Lipstick - NYC New York Color - Ultra Moist Lip Wear Retro Red 308B

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2017

Retro Red is a very beautiful warm/orange-tinted red. I own a few drugstore reds including Wet n Wild's Stoplight Red which is more of a true BRIGHT red than a warm red, so I'm glad to have this one for the unique look that a warmer red creates on my pale, neutral toned skin.

it's true that the formula is extremely greasy so lip liner is critical for a precise …

Lipstick - wet n wild - Silk Finish 503C Will You Be With Me?

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2017

Wet n Wild's 'Will You be With Me' is an incredible cool toned light pink. It's not so cool or so pasty that it makes my pale neutral toned skin look ill, but instead it looks a bit mod or retro. I love it. It's definitely a pastel pink as opposed to a mauve, and in fluorescent lighting it looks much cooler than in sunlight when it seems to turn a bit more baby doll …Read more
