Normally to shell out this much for a mask is a no-no for me but after been presented a sample of this luxurious mask i am a serious converter.
<P>The mask is a smooth rich creme mask that spreads on well and just a thin layer is needed. I use the Nanolotion first to prep the skin and after about 15 min, i removed this and my skin just GLOWED! It is smooth and radiant, looks so rested …

Fragrances - CHANEL - Cristalle Eau Verte

Contrary to the review below, I have got a bottle of Cristalle Au Verte in 100ml EDT Concentree. I am a follower of the original Cristalle and was really excited to see an undated version of this classic scent.

I must say that C.a.V smells more tangy and high on the nose initially due to the lemon and bergamot top notes. Very different from Cristalle that is a citrus fresh with a …

I love the idea of having the bottle invert in storage, with the opening at the bottom. It means the product comes out easily with effort.

Overall average product, smells lovely though. If your hair is fine it may weight down too much as it does deposits on the hair. Mine is med texture hair and i can feel a slight residue on my hair after using a small 80ml bottle on my …

Shampoo - Clairol - Herbal Essences Dangerously Straight Shampoo [DISCONTINUED]

A regular shampoo. I used a small travel size on my trip and it cleans and lathers up well with a nice lingering scent of sweet florals to the hair.

Did not see any straightening effects at all. Have to use conditioner together to detangle me waist long hair.

Overall average. Maybe will use it for the nice smell more than other factors.

Fragrances - Bath & Body Works - Sea Island Cotton

I have this in the body spray. I used to love Cotton Blossom and this is kind of like the new replacement for the DC scent.

Clean fresh and with a powdery note, this revives me during a hot day. Feels so clean and cool after a couple a spritzes of this. The noticable diff btw this and the old Cotton Blossom is that this has a slight tinge of "saltishness" sea notes to it. Not …

Fragrance - Bulgari - Pour Homme

Fresh, Crisp and Light. These are the main comments from friends and family. This is a Men's fragrance but I use this too! In my climate it is so humid that heavy florals do not work well in the daytime. This treasure works well, maintaining an air of freshness with just a touch of depth in the woody base notes.

Suitable if you and SO like to use this together as I feel it is …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolour Perennial Rose

Mar/28/2009

The colour of this is def not a rose IMHO. It is a deep shade of wine, like a burgundy when you apply full coverage. Pretty intense colour but with a seperate lip brush able to paint a light coating it is a more rose wine colour.

Very long lasting, the most important thing is not to use any lip balm or moisturizers underneath or the colour will slip off. On clean dry lips, paint on …

Lip Liners - Fusion Beauty - Lip Plumping Pencil

Mar/28/2009

I have been very lucky to receive this in a swap from a generous lady. The pencil does not have the shade on it but after checking the website I reckon it is in Buff. The colour is a pinkish brown nude in the pencil but on me shows up more as a opaque pinky-brown. The texture is very smooth and you can colour the whole lip with this pencil. Pigmented and easy to apply, pity though it does not …Read more

Self Tanners - Dove - Summer Glow

First, The bottle is longish and the opening is on top, so when squeezing the lotion out I had a bit of a problem when i hit below mid bottle, I have to shake the lotion down to express it out and when the hands are slippery with lotion it is a hassle... Much prefer a tube packaging.

The lotion is pretty lightweight but kinds of sit on the skin and gives a filmy feeling. The smell is …

Lip Treatments - Fusion Beauty - LipFusion XL 2X Micro-Injected Collagen and HA Lip Plumping Therapy

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/21/2009

I am one of the minority to really love this product. I do have full lips but wanted it to look plumper, more juicy and luscious. This is XL which is like a nightime treatment, with both sea-collagen as well as Hyaluronic acid to help to draw moisture to the lips for a fuller, plumper look.

-As this has HA in this, the results are more permanent on me. I will use LipFusion Clear in the …
