Fragrances - LUSH - Gorilla Perfume - Lust

This is really an outrageously sexy jasmine. It definitely lasts, it's powerful so use sparingly. As one previous reviewer says, if you don't like jasmine, don't buy it. One caveat: it will stain your clothes or your pillowcase red, as I found out with the spray version. Perhaps the solid version is safer? That's my next purchase of a version of this wildly gorgeous scent …Read more

Fragrances - REVLON - Charlie original in blue box

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2016

When I was young and Charlie was new, I didn't wear it, for whatever reason. The other day, I was shopping and a woman walked past me and stopped at the same clothes rack. I had to ask, "Is that you who's wearing such a wonderful fragrance? What IS that?" She laughed and said, "Charlie. Good old Charlie, not so easy to find now." "Oh, RIGHT," I said …Read more

Fragrances - Lolita Lempicka - Si Lolita de Lolita Lempicka

Jul/11/2016

Just want to put in my "Yea" vote for this amazing Lolita Lempicka fragrance. This one is truly unusual (as per other reviews that describe all its notes), but every bit as delicious, albeit with less staying power, as some of the other LLs. Still...it gives me a great deal of pleasure. Definitely worth a try.

Lipstick - wet n wild - MegaLast Lip Color

Mar/30/2015

Update: So I went to Walgreen's to shop for more shades, and discovered the packaging for these matte lipsticks has changed, and so I have no idea whether or not the formula has changed. When I buy one of these in the new incarnation, I will edit my earlier review.

First review: Agree that this is an amazing product for the price. I love matte lipsticks that don't smear all …

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-In-1 Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2015

Have spent a fortune trying to find a foundation that doesn't leave a finish that ages me more than Mother Nature has done already. I use Swanson Vitamins' Hidrox cream under it, then Neutrogena sunscreen for sensitive skin, then this product, and I feel protected...and presentable, too! I use 842 in the winter, and will either blend it with 845 in summer, or use 845 alone. There seem …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Coco Noir Eau de Parfum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/19/2015

Drying my toes at the nail place last summer/early fall, I caught a whiff of something really different, intriguing. Aha! It was definitely worn by the chic lady sitting next to me. Of course, I asked her, "What is your lovely fragrance?" The answer was gently delivered in a genuine French accent: "Coco Noir." Well, knock me over with a feather. I had sampled it several …Read more

Fragrances - Dior - J'adore Eau de Parfum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/01/2014

Never have been impressed by J'adore when test spritzing it in department stores, but a friend gave me a partial that had belonged to his mother, and turns out this is a great fragrance according to my husband, friends, and strangers I pass in the street. Luckily for me, it doesn't disappear so quickly that I feel cheated of enjoying wearing it. It's too expensive, of course …Read more

Fragrances - Elizabeth Arden - Sunflowers Eau de Toilette

Picked up a small spray of this at a discount store. Maybe it has gone bad, but it's really a cheesy, dreadful odor, right out of the bottle, not just with my chemistry. If this is the real thing, then it's an insult to Elizabeth Arden's memory. Test first!! Wish I had....

Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Brucci Cocoa Matte 13

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2013

This is a true matte lipstick. It is still available in some Rite Aid stores, but most of the old generation of matte Brucci's have been replaced with cream lipsticks, some of which are also very good. I like this shade as a good red, not a shocking red, but definitely red. As someone who has reached the age where the big dread about a lipstick formula is that it might slide all over and …Read more

Foundations - Dermablend - Cover Creme (new formula)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/30/2013

Having recently had a revision/lower facelift, within days after the procedure, I went to Macy's for Dermablend. At first, I wasn't sure it was right. However, after I figured out that primer is a must with what I understand is a new formula for Dermablend Professional Cover Creme, I am happier with it than with any other products I have tried for coverage of healing scars and …Read more
