Fragrances - Comme des Garcons - Comme des Garcons x Pharrell Williams Girl

Let me be honest: this reminds me so much of my beloved Moschino I Love Love, that I bought 2 bottles. It's most definitely unisex, but if you're a chick that likes the smell of neroli and sandalwood and vetiver on your skin, you'll probably enjoy this.

My suggestion is to go spray this on a sample card and walk around sniffing it for about an hour. If you still say …

Treatments - Unlisted Brand - California Mango - Mango Magic Cuticle Treatment Oil

Aug/13/2014

Living in SoCal I seem to find this everywhere I look, but somehow avoided it's greatness until a fellow surfer recommended the line for my feet - the oil and the balm. For the past few years I've become a certified hoarder of this stuff.

it's inexpensive and easy to find. It smells delish and probably what you wanted to hear most of all: it freaking works. I have the …

I've been wearing this perfume almost daily since the day I was finally able to afford to buy myself perfume from a place that didn't also sell vitamins.

I like musky and earthy fragrances in general, but I think what originally drew me to this is that it reminds me of a bottle of perfume that sat on my aunt's dresser in the late 1970s. I have zero idea what it was but …

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara

No. Just "No".

My only regret besides chucking out over $20 for this was the fact that I didn't keep my receipt.

I bought a small version of the non-waterproof Lights, Camera because I needed a travel tube and at the time they didn't have the smaller Too Faced BTS mascara for sale. Using the small tube, I thought..."hmm...this isn't half bad …

I miss the solid stick form, but this is the next best thing.

This product is the bees knees. I have uber sensitive skin and haven't had one issue putting this on my face. It does contain a grapefruit extract which could be problematic for some skins.

I have two tubes now, one on my nightstand and one in my work travel bag.

I use this for everything from …

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Waxelene- The Petroleum Jelly Alternative

Jul/15/2014

I've been using this product for about 4 years now, as a healthy alternative to petroleum. Before this, I used the Un-Petroleum product available at WFs.

What I use this for mainly is: lip balm, DIY lipscrub (blend with a small pinch of coconut sugar), night time foot treatment and I use it to turn powder eyeshadow and blush into a luminous cream.

I have always had the …

First off, I'm a contact lense wearer so I'm super persnickety about what goes near my eyes. I've tried eye color, mascara and liners from healthy ingredient brands often and I know that they don't always fit the bill in terms of irritation-free.

I own two colors: Bora Bora Bronze and Rio de Rose Gold. I use Bora for a natural
Looking liner on my eyelids and …

I have zero dislikes for this product. I own three colors, so far: Everlasting Honey (EH) & Boundless Berry (BB) & Endless Guava (EG). For $18 you receive a generous 0.5 oz of product. The tube is convenient and sanitary.

I am vegetarian and attempt to ensure my health and beauty products are: - eco - animal - organic- friendly, responsibly packaged and when possible, locally …

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz

Jul/02/2014

The Medium Ash and Dark Brown are really nice matches, and I love the ease of the product and the spooly component at the end.

BUT... The Sephora Brand waterproof version they came out with last Summer is better...it's not only less expensive, but it actually lasts far longer than the Anastasia. By longer I mean wears longer. Sephora Brand also features a click/twist mechanism (no …

Jun/30/2014

I very much enjoy the revised formula, and I will continue to re-purchase if it remains the same.

I think there's a trick to making sure you don't use so much that it becomes sticky and doesn't work with makeup. I simply put one pump into my dry hands, slightly warm it up between them both and then gently but firmly press it all over my facial skin.

Then I …
