Like other reviewers I received this in a FabFitFun box. As someone who requires a moisturizing/protectant product to blow dry my curly hair straight, I thought it worked well. I used a dime size on my long hair and set to the job. My hair came out sleek and shiny. It smells divine and the scent does not linger past the blowdry phase. I would purchase it again in the future.

Fragrances - Elizabeth and James - Nirvana Rose Eau de Parfum

May/10/2017

I received a sample of E&J Nirvana Rose and the first few times I wore it, I was shocked that I liked it at all as I do not care for rose scents as they all remind me of Grandmothers and Afghan blankets. However, this rose is deep and subtle. Although not listed in the notes I detect a citrusy burst which according to some other sites is Bergamot (not listed in the simple 3 note description …Read more

Fragrances - mark. - Instant Vacation

5.0

May/08/2017

Mark's 2008 Instant Vacation "Carribean" described a fruity floral and much more spicey and this lacks the fruitiness you would expect. This rendition skips the fake bikini coconut and tropical fruit and seems much more like a Fall fragrance thanks to the teakwood. There is something in it that reminiscent of Britany Spears Circus fantasy. Both of which I wear late summer early …Read more

May/08/2017

The 2011 edition of Instant Vacation "Ibiza Sol" was described as "sunblissed scent of Ibiza Sol" blended with notes of sea, sky, sparkling Mediterranean Citrus and Seville Orange according to the box from Mark. Other fragrance websites have Honeysuckle, Pear, White geranium, Musk and Sea Notes listed. Upon first spray I am overwhelmed by the Sea notes and subtle citrus. It …Read more

Among CK's most recent perfume offerings is this dark sexy fragrance. This fragrance is a spicy gourmand. The amber and wood notes take center stage which lends to it almost a unisex quality. I don't reach for this often but when I do I find it to be spicy in all right ways.


Notes :sensual lotus blossom and black orchid. Euphoria by Calvin Klein then finishes off with …

Fragrances - Viktor & Rolf - Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

May/05/2017

Described as a floral gourmand, I had a very had time finding the floral. The amber and patchouli stole the show.
As a gourmand / spicy scent lover this appealed to me much more than expected. However, where gourmands seem to be a dime a dozen these days this offering did not stand out. I can't see myself reaching for this over some of the other gourmands in my collection. Silage was …

Primer/ Corrector - NYX Professional Makeup - Dewy Finish Setting Spray

Mar/22/2017

Another MEH product. I love the idea of this, dewy setting spray but I don't love the actual product. I like so many others that aren't thrilled with this product suffer from desert dry skin. The last thing I want is for my face to look like a dried out raisin, which is what happens with this product. It goes on dewy but once dried my face is completely dried out and I even have dry …Read more

Fragrances - Maison Margiela - 'Replica' By the Fireplace

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/28/2017

Replica Fireplace is a woodsy unisex fragrance that will appeal to those who like gourmand scents. This rendition has been described as "70's ski lodge" or "chestnuts roasting on an open fire", and those two descriptions are fitting. There is something inherently sexy about this fragrance and its so unique. Its a heavier scent and better left to a lighter hand but perfect …Read more

Happy Birthday too me! After eyeballing and lusting after this palette since Christmas I too the chance and purchased. I was not disappointed. While the majority are mattes there are a few shimmers thrown in. I find this palette creates many daytime and nighttime looks. It smells like Vanilla too. Creamy blendable shadows with high payoff. Very happy with this.

Palettes - Too Faced - Boudoir Eyes Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection

My newest eye palette pickup, Too Faced Boudoir Eyes. Perfect combination of mattes and shimmers. As someone with hazel eyes, these colors really make the eyes pop but yet are subtle enough for daytime. The combination of pinks, grays and purple are perfect to pull together a smoky eye for evening as well. I def suggest the palette for brown/hazel eyes.
