This is really, really a great candle and I wish there was a perfume like this.
Expensive, but well worth it - burns properly and really long and the smell ist so wonderful - fresh, green roses, green blackcurrant leaves and a hint of blackcurrant berries.
I'm getting addicted to this candle and will definitely have to try more of the diptyque candle line.

Polishes - Dior - Dior Vernis - Porcelain

OMG, I have to review this because its the worst beauty product I ever bought and there are a lot. I am missing a zero lippie...
Color looks so nice in the bottle but goes on so unbelievable streaky! Even on my toes the result is a streaky, clumpy mess.
Tried it with diorlisse ridgefiller under it, but the result was the same.
I really can't understand how anyone is able to …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Stephanie de Saint-Aigan - Amande Honorable

Jul/03/2008

I cannot believe the former reviewer really meant Amande Honorable?
This is no gourmand at all. A light, clean fragrance, starting of with sun-dried linen or cotton, lime-tree blossom, developing to a very beautiful green and fresh almond. The fragrance is not or only barely sweet at all.
I am a strong almond lover, but this is different to all other almond fragrances I tried. It is …

Foundations - Giorgio Armani - Face Fabric Second Skin Nude Makeup

After a few weeks of use, this is my review. A really, really great foundation!! Very sheer, absolutely natural looking, really evens out skintone in a phenomenal way. This is truly an imperceptible second skin. Lasting power is quite good, still looks fresh at the end of the day.
I bought this in #3 which is nearly perfect, except I am very tanned but in that case I may adjust it with a …

Treatments (Face) - Estée Lauder - Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/09/2007

Bought this a few weeks ago and gave this away for a swap.
I suspect it to cause blackheads and zits as they are starting to disappear since I stopped using the product.
I consider this product as a good primer, but nothing more. Did nothing for my skin except of smoothing it during application.
No diminishment of pores, no clearing as promised.
I liked the feeling when …

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Spiritueuse Double Vanille

Nov/06/2007

Wow! just received a decant of this... Impressing vanilla.

I have to state I am a vanilla and almond lover, so the name double vanille is highly addictive to me.
Sampled this yesterday and was quite overwhelmed. A perfect vanilla, natural, deep, sweet, but in a way the fresh vanille beans are. Benzoin. A liquor note, but in a very pleasant way, no sharp alcoholic note.
I …

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Louve

Oh why, all those bad reviews here for such a wonderful scent?
First of all, yes, I too did compare it to Rahat Loukoum, as I also own this fragrance.
These are two different fragrances, except of the first almond blast in the opening.
After the first almond shock, on me Louve develops to a wonderful, powdery rose-musk-almond with a balmy heart. Very feminine, very comforting. I …

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Beach Honey

This is a great new summer color of BB's cream shadows. Gorgeous beige-golden-peach color.
Looks very shimmery in the container, but absolutely great on lids.
Brightens up immediately and looks great with a tan. Easy to apply, can be used for a quick, natural and polished look.
I like the glass container of the creamies very much, they do look very elegant and expensive …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - IL Profumo Mandarine

May/11/2007

I'm very surprised to see such bad review.
This is a wonderful fragrance, a crispy, green, uplifting mandarine/tangerine.
Has surprising staying power for a citrus fragrance, compared with l'Artisan Mandarine tout simplement, staying power is incomparably better as l'Artisan was gone after 10 minutes.
For me, this is a very stimulating, bright scent making me feel …

Best summer body cream I have ever used!!!
Absolutely heavenly scented (spearmint) and a little cooling, its effect will last for quite a few hours!
Very economical in application, you only will need a little amount.
Skin feels totally soft and great with it!
Will make you feel absolutely great when applied on hot days or after your workout.
Definitely will buy this …
