Jun/30/2014

Searching for warm pink/coral, I decided to try something new. Jouer sounded promising. I bought Hydrating Lipstick "Meg". "Meg" is described as honeyed pink. It is a perfect combination of pink and yellow colours with a tiny drop of the red colour. The product does not make me look sallow. It is not particularly moisturizing.
The low rating for this decent product is …

Fragrances - L'Artisan Parfumeur - Caligna

"Caligna" is a new offering from L'Artisan. The inspiration for this fragrance is Provencal. Although I truly detest lentisque, I decided to sample it.
The composition itself is very complex and tries to mix fruity notes with herbal ones. Fruity and herbal notes are quite fleeting. It is interesting though that lentisque pierces the whole composition, takes sugary sweetness …

Aug/13/2013

Notes according to luckyscent.com: Tuberose absolute, gardenia, Bulgarian rose, purple lilac, carnation, jasmine absolute, heliotrope, cedar wood

The charm of Opardu is in its lightness and opalescence. It is an aloof serene Japanese lady looking at a pond. At first the fragrance is rich white floral. As with "Un Matin d'Orage", gardenia has got a very strong pitch …

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Vitriol d'oeillet

It is a dark Gothic perfume. The clove, nutmeg, and peppers notes did not make this perfume warm and spicy. Quite contrary, Vitriol d’oeillet stayed cool and slightly salty. Carnations notes added the scent of freshly-cleaned linens. Overall, I got spicy soap.
I found it very long lasting. Therefore I give it 2 lippies.

Masks - GLAMGLOW - Supermud Clearing Treatment Masque

Aug/11/2013

It is a mediocre mask. There is nothing in this mask that could justify $69.
The mask dries fast and allows one to see all the pores on my face. It irritated apples of my cheeks and I was unable to determine which ingredient in the mask did it. Furthermore, I had breakouts. If I left mask for 7-10 minutes, it did not properly clean T-zone. My face felt dry papery after 15 minutes.

I too bought the sample from Luckyscent. I read and heard a lot of reviews praising Serge Lutens and his perfume masterpieces. Given the price, I felt fortunate to sample a decant "La Fille de Berlin" and looked forward to testing the maestro's latest offering.
I found this particular creation underwhelming. It stinks like most European fragrances do. The noted listed …

Apr/20/2013

After reading many reviews from usual people and make up artists such as Lisa Eldridge, I decided to buy this product. I am totally unimpressed. It leaves my faces feeling gritty and dirty. It takes up 5 cottons to remove Dejavu Fiberwig Extra Long Mascara. I give this product 2 lippies for not irritating my face.
I used 500 ml bottle bought on imomoko.com and 250 ml bottle of Sebium H2O …
