Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Lip Colour - Mademoiselle

3.0

What a gorgeous shade! BUT after purchasing it and wearing it for several days, I realize it's a mistake for me, and a pricey one at that -- ouch! There used to be one of those "rules" about older women needing to think about avoiding "frosted" lipsticks, and I proved that darn rule with this purchase. If only it were this beautiful color without anything metallic about …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Beautiful Eau de Parfum

2.0

It's not Beautiful anymore, not in any way. They changed it. Not the gorgeous, long lasting 80s masterpiece that one had to be so careful about not over dousing oneself with -- in order not to flip people out in surrounding seats in concert halls! Alas, it's simply another fragrance formula, and not even close to the original. Another heartbreaker.

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

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.

Fragrances - CHANEL - Coco Noir Eau de Parfum

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

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

Oct/09/2013

12/21/2019 update: This product has disappeared from the world.
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 …

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
