Lipstick - girlactik - Matte Lip Paint

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/15/2014

I took off one star because the range of colors is limited to 4 at the moment and I would like more variety. That being said, this is a great product. It goes on very thin and slick but dries very fast (less than 15 seconds). You can build the color with additional applications. I purchased Demure which is a plummy brown on my lips...more towards brown than plum though (note: my lips don't …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Hana Naia Euphoria

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2014

Hana Nai’a Euphiora was a wildly pleasant surprise! While I am not insistent upon using only organic products, if I can find ones that perform well, I am thrilled! My experience with “natural” perfumes in the past is that the staying power left a lot to be desired. This is not the case with Euphoria. Per the company website information, this oil has notes of mango and citrus-florals. Typically …Read more

Brows - Unlisted Brand - Wunderbrow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2013

For years, I filled in my short, sparse brows with Anastasia's brow powder using a Trish McEvoy #32 brow brush and then sealing them with Model in a Bottle sealant. This process worked very well although by the end of the day, the brows were fading. Wunderbrow has more pros than cons than my old tried and true method of creating pretty, arched brows. One pro is that this absolutely lasts all …Read more

Lips - Giorgio Armani - Lip Maestro Liquid Lipstick - All Shades

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/26/2012

Lip Maestro is a fabulous product. I have thin-ish lips so am always on the hunt for high pigment that won't come off easilly. This fits the bill perfectly. It feels like a gloss (reasonably slick), it looks like a matte lipstick and the color is heavilly saturated. I purchased this in Blush and it's more peachy, cool nude than pink. It's a great daytime shade (I wear Maestro …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Roca Parfums Lemon Cloud

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2012

Roca Parfums Lemon Cloud is a fun, bright lemon scent which reminds me of the Lemon Love's Baby Soft. The staying power is pretty poor overall and I prefer Comptoir Sud Pacifique's Vanille Citrus. It is not as sharp and bright and sparkly a lemon as the Roca...but I prefer the lemon pound cake aspect of the CSP. Also, I see many MUA-er's discussing this dreamy custard note that …Read more

Fragrances - La Maison de la Vanille - Absolu de Vanille

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2012

I LOVE LaMaison Vanille Absolu de Vanille! While I've enjoyed the vanilla scents from this line, I never found one quite bottle worthy (vanillas have to be special for me since I must have at least 30+ vanillas that I LOVE!!). This one reminds me of the original L'Occitane Vanille...very sweet, very rich....I wish I could do a side by side comparison but alas, my last bottle of …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Profumum- Dolce Acqua

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2012

For heliotrope, almond, doughy vanilla lovers, this is a must try. The Dolce Acqua is right up my gourmand loving alley! It's so pricey though and for $240 a bottle, it's hard to justify since it reminds me of a totally amped up Ava Luxe Heliotrope which is soooo inexpensive. I have to say I am enjoying the staying power of the Dolce Acqua as most almondy scents don't seem to last …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Profumi del Forte - Vittoria Apuana

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2012

Profumi del Forte Vittoria Apuana is the beach in a bottle! This is a really pleasant, really wearable scent almost on a par with a skin scent. I get light coconut, light gardenia and sweet vanilla (but not super sweet or cloying like CSP Vanille Coco or Coco Extreme). It reminds me of Les Scenteurs Vanille Monoi but more well done / well blended. Notes are Sweet Brazilian orange, Sicilian …Read more

Fragrances - LUSH - Yuzu & Coco

4.0

Nov/19/2011

LOVE it!!! Smells like a pina colada....Very fruity and coconutty....I know it's supposed to be orange but in this blend, I get pineapple with orange and coconut as well as some cocoa butter....it's also pretty similar to Pilar & Lucy's Exact Friction of Stars minus the thick/cloying caramel that even for a sweet stuff lover like me, tends to be too much! Glad I bought 2 …Read more

Fragrances - LUSH - Rose Jam

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2011

Rose Jam doesn't work for me. You have to be a FULL ON rose lover to appreciate this one....It's very potent, mostly rose, a touch of green....not my thing. I do get the honeyed / jammy notes but they are way in the background and the green / herbal aspect overpowers the jammy goodness. It is powerful as all getout so once you've sprayed it, expect it to hang around on your skin …Read more
