Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Encens et Lavande

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/03/2006

As the lady at the Lutens boutique informed me while I was testing it, this is more lavender in the beginning and more incense in the end. I don't usually like lavender but this (and Gris Clair) are the exceptions so far. To compare the two, Gris Clair's lavender is cold and sharp, while Encens et Lavande's softer and milder. I can see why some have commented Gris Clair to be a …Read more

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Fumerie Turque

2.0

Oct/29/2006

Had high hopes for this one but unfortunately it doesn't work on me at all. I don't mind the incense nor the smoke (and it is *very* smokey), but it is the drydown on me that broke the deal. As it developed, I detected something that is at odd, hidden amidst the smoke, that smelled wrong and simply, just turned me off. Really turned me off. I don't know what it is but if I had to …Read more

Mascara - Stephane Marais - Mascara Comb [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/24/2006

I had this in brown and was using it until recently. It is certainly an outstanding mascara, where they really got the brush and the forumla right in one package. It may be clumpy in the beginning due to the amount of product the comb picks up. But wiping off the excess solves this problem and is better than combing it through again afterwards in my experience. As others have mentioned this will …Read more

Blush - CHANEL - turbulent

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/23/2006

Don't let the neon pink scare you away. When lightly applied it turns to a soft, cool pink on my LLL cheeks. Turbulent definitely has silver micro-shimmer in it and is quite pigmented (but not nearly as much as SB chic palettes). The blush is buildable if you use a light hand. The micro-shimmers make the blush unique for me - I would not have purchased otherwise. It has a rose water type of …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Laura Mercier - Smudge Brush

Aug/23/2006

Any eyeliner pencil + this brush = all you need for easy smokey eyes. Got this after a recent LM makeover and the MA did exactly what araisin below described. The look: <br>1. Brown Copper liner sloppily applied (not even lined), smudged out above to just outside of the crease with this brush<br>2. Apply Evolution of Eye in Taupe (mixed together) concentrating on the …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Oasis

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/23/2006

Oasis shows up on my warm LLL skin as a sparkly rosey pink - much like a deeper / darker Orgasm. It's too dark on me though and looks like a botched contouring attempt. The blush is very pigmented, shimmery with sparkles that are IMO, similar but tamer than Angelika's (not OTT). To be honest I was expecting a more unique shade from the looks of the pan. I think Oasis would look best on …Read more

Lip Treatments - Smashbox - Smashbox Lip Treatment

4.0

Aug/19/2006

I've repurchased this and both times I bought the original (colourless). To me, it has a very faint caramel smell (according to sephora's description, it's honey). Definetly tastes sweet. I don't mind either attributes. The balm is moisturising, but with the 2nd tube I feel like I have to 'break it in' so that it glides on without tugging. Other than that it works …Read more

Lip Treatments - NARS Cosmetics - Sabrina Lip Balm with SPF 20

Aug/11/2006

Surprised by how pigmented it is on the lips, it really washes me out. The melon scent is fun but I suggest you smell before you buy as it might not be what you expect either. But the main reason I don't like this is it's actually drying on me. If you must have a NARS lip balm, 'Rain' is better.

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2006

I'm almost finishing my 2nd tube. I like it for its texture - emolient but not greasy (think Kiehl's & vaseline). I like my lip balms in a tube and I've tried to find something with a similar texture out there but I haven't had success yet. I find the others too waxy and does not glide on as smoothly as this does. Does not dry my lips either. Agree with another reviewer …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Biotherm - Hydra-detox Yeux

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/01/2006

This is the worst eye gel I've tried. Forget all its other promises, it does not even moisturize my eye area (I'm in my 20s with combo skin), it's like dabbing on water. IMO it is too light and can't grab onto the skin. I only gave it 2 lippies because of the pump dispenser. It might work for you, but there are way better eye gels out there than risking your money with this …Read more
