To all those people that have trouble getting the product to foam: I was instructed by an SA that you have to add a little bit of water to it to help it emuslify. That said, I've used it both ways but definitely prefer it with a bit of water added, it just makes it easier to work through wet hair. My hair is dry and curly with a 3A/3B texture. I had trouble using this product because I would …Read more

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Alien Eau de Parfum

Good lord. This fragrance is so one-note. I got a sample of it thinking I'd love it (I love Michael Kors and reviewers often draw parallels between that frag and this one) but oh god, no. It screams at you like a bad 80's hair metal song. It's not a definite scrubber but I couldn't wait for it to dry down and fade a bit. I liked the one note I could pick out but it smelled …Read more

I'm so sad, so very sad this didn't work out for me. I sampled it and wore it to work (at an office) and while it is a very unobtrusive, work-friendly scent, there isn't much projection and well... character. Don't get me wrong, it's very lovely and understated and would work for all occasions but as the day went on (and as I dabbed it on again and again, desperate to …Read more

Fun fact: Jean Harlow, in addition to Ingrid Bergman, wore this fragrance as well!

I was so excited to get my hands on a small sample vial of Mitsouko EDP. The notes in this vintage fragrance sounded fascinating and Im a big fan of chypres. On me it smells warm, herbal and a bit dirty. The peach in it is not sweet at all, but a dry, subtle peach. I like the oakmoss base but …

Lotions/ Creams - Reviva Labs - Alpha Lipoic Acid, Olive Oil & DMAE hand & body lotion

I have no problems with the soybean in this lotion. Just wanted to say that...

ANYWAY
I got this pretty cheap online and was drawn to the fact that it has DMAE and Alpha Lipoic Acid (I still don't know what they do, but I was curious!) as I wanted a good body lotion. The consistency is like a daily hair conditioner (too thin for my tastes) and there's a very faint …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Frost - Nocturnelle

I hated this eyeshadow. I don't know why I bought it. I think the MAC SA used this as a liner or crease color on one of the looks she did on me. Now, purple is my favorite color, so I thought I'd love this. But no matter what I tried to do with it it was just too.. dark and not the shade of purple for me. Blending it was also a task, I'm guessing because it's a …Read more

Shampoo - Schwarzkopf - Gliss - Hair Repair With Liquid Keratin - Ultimate Repair Shampoo

Sep/12/2013

I've been using the Gliss Hair Repair with liquid karatin ultimate repair conditioner (black bottle) with the Gliss marrakesh oil and coconut shampoo (dark brown bottle) for months now. I've repurchased half a dozen times. First off, the shampoo smells divine (like musky coconuts) and is really moisturizing. The conditioner, to me, smells like chocolate which is an absolute pleasure to …Read more

Weleda, you confuse me. Why is this listed under moisturizer? And why are all your bottles so similar looking? (Is it just me?) I'd love to buy this product again but it's hard to find and I get it confused with the one in the navy blue wavy bottle which is the Deep Cleanser somethingorother. I'm reviewing the cleansing lotion in the straight up and down blue glass bottle, unless …Read more

Mascara - La Femme - Cake Mascara

I think cake mascara has to be just for novelty use but I'm glad I tried it. I'm a vintage junkie so of course I had to get one of these. (I've bought and tested other gimmicky things that did nothing for me lol so I'm glad I got some use out of this!)

Yes, the packaging is ridiculously bulky. Yes, it runs and smears at the first sign of moisture. The best way I …

BB Cream - Boots - No 7 Instant Radiance Beauty Balm

Sep/12/2013

I was looking for a dupe of MAC Strobe cream and this is it! The only difference is the texture of this is a bit lighter as the MAC one is more of a cream and this one is slightly more gel-like which is better for my oily skin. I'm annoyed that I can't get No. 7 where I live and this is hard to find online so I ended up swapping for this. You get a lot of product for the price and I …Read more
