Moisturizers - La Mer - The Moisturizing Soft Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2012

I received a sample with a recent purchase. I kind of refused to try La Mer because of the high price tag and the whole "hype" around it. Or in other words the whole story around. The price tag was more of a turn off and the policy of the counters (where I have been to so far) not to give out one single sample.
I tried it in real colder temps recently during day time. At that time …

Feb/04/2011

I am going through the 3rd dispenser of this product. As much as I like the other products of the Exigence line, this one does nothing for me. Well it does not do anything good or bad. I could probably use Nivea cream for the eye area with the same effect. No improvement whatsoever.The price is ridiculous given the , for me individually, no result. DHC concentrated eye cream works for me with …Read more

Lucky me that I received 2 sample sachets when I purchased a niche perfume. The perfumery does have high end skincare products in their range. The SA explained the use to me and at home the same nite I tried them for the first time.Wow wow and another wow was all I could say after the first application. Instantly my pores looked smaller, my skin in general did appear like a baby butt. Soft and …Read more

Fragrances - Amouage - Lyric Woman

Nice, very nice rop
a shy rose that develops out of a bed of cardamom and a hint of ginger. Slowly it seems the rose arises. At least on my skin. The balance between the cardamom and the ginger is very nice. I dont care much for ginger but this amount is okay with me. Initially I did not smell the rose. It took her a while to show up. Along, I think, I smell a hint of iris? Could that be? No …

Liquid - REVLON - Beyond Natural Skin Matching Makeup SPF 15

Aug/31/2008

I happened to see this last weekend when I was in the US and purchased it. In previous years I did use Revlon Colorstay Lipsticks. Since I wanted a Make Up that is not high end in price I thought I give this a try. Plus it is the first skin matching make up I tried. I bought the lightest color. Am a 2.5 with BB MU which did not work for me. The texture of this MU is nice. I can apply it with my …Read more

Lip Gloss - Hourglass Cosmetics - Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss

Dec/26/2007

I was fortunate to have a good friend sending me an Hourglass Extreme Shine in Imagine. The price is really high end. In comparison to the price for EL and Chanel I would say it is in the same range if I convert it to Euro. Armani is for sure more expensive. Back to the Hourglass. Nice packaging. The brush is great. Not a cheap one like other brands (e.g. BB where the brush spreads wide after a …Read more

Fragrances - Sage Machado - Carnelian

Jan/02/2007

I did try the Carnelian as a sample since there was a big rave about the similarity to Citrus Dream by Jalaine. First of all I dont see it less expensive as the Jalaine. Probably only by a fraction. Second the smell is horrible to me. I do adore the Citrus Dream and it is a soft citrus scent with a creamy touch on my skin. The Carnelian has (this is my personal view on it) no similarity in the …Read more
