Late to the party on this fragrance, wish I'd known about it earlier in my life, but I so enjoy using it. I have it in several forms and just ordered a bottle from Costco - shocked to find it there - for less than $90 for 2.5oz. Love the perfume oil, the roll-on, and also have this in soap form.

I have never worn lipstick and not about to begin doing so. My lips have always had a natural tint.

However...a sample of this was in a Barney's GWP. I opened it up and immediately thought I'd send it to my daughter to use as Halloween makeup until I tried it on.

Lovely! Imparted a great color and some sheen to my lips without actually being …

Shampoo - Unlisted Brand - Sachajuan Silver Shampoo

Mar/01/2017

I've tried a number of silver/violet shampoos and conditioners, and I found Sachajuan to be the best for my hair. I receive so many compliments on its appearance, mainly from younger women who tell me they'd love to have my hair color. It came with age but Sachajuan certainly makes it look its best. I have a short lob and wash/condition my hair 3x a week, so this product lasts quite …Read more

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - La vierge de fer

This fragrance was just "okay" for me. I also have Cellophane, which I prefer just bit more than La vierge de fer. I cannot do without Un Lys, however - my favorite Serge Lutens fragrance.

September 2014: Bought the cloche bottle at Barneys during their recent beauty event. Turns out that I love this - not quite as much as Un Lys but close.

Don't buy this brand at a mall. I was recently at the Forum Shops at Caesar's in Las Vegas, and they wanted upwards of $500 for this stuff. He then came down to $140. I found it on amazon for a lot less. I am sure the overhead in Las Vegas is prohibitive to have one of those kiosks in that area.

The eye product looked good but then was stiff and flakey about 30 minutes …

I loved this mascara for a long time. But no more. I just opened a new tube and it added nothing to my lashes. What's more, whatever was on the brush wound up flaked all over under my eyes. Either someone (beauty.com) sold me an old tube or this stuff has really gone downhill.

I'm sticking with shu.

The product itself was initially okay. The packaging leaves much to be desired, especially the lid. I put it in a basket in a bathroom drawer with an assortment of other products and the lid came off, much to my dismay. I discovered it a few days later and the product was all over everything and had removed the information from another product - not a label but the embossed lettering. My …Read more

I bought this fragrance 7 years ago while in Switzerland and rapidly grew tired of it. However, on my way home, I found the stick deodorant at the DFS and have used it exclusively since. Great scent and contains no alcohol.

Some months back, I received a curler identical to this but without the name in a pink mesh Nordstrom GWP. I can see no difference between the two except that one was a freebie and the other was $15, and the effect is the same. And it still occasionally pinches the flesh in the corner of my eye.
