Lipstick - GUERLAIN - Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick - Jewel

Rather bad lipstick for such a (typical for Guerlain) 'over the top' presentation and such a luxurious packaging (and for this price). It is drying on the lips and it creases... Very average texture, nothing special. Bad staying power. Huge disappointment.

Moisturizers - Orlane - Extreme Line-Reducing Re-Plumping Cream

5.0

An excellent cream! Very moisturizing, and it really sort of 're-plumps' the skin. The skin looks fresher, younger, re-plumped -- you just look good! Feeling on the skin is very nice & pleasant, because it is, as I said, very moistuirizing (although the consistency is not thick, it has light fresh creamy consistency). I like this cream a lot and I will repurchase for sure.

Moisturizers - Orlane - Absolute Skin Recovery Repairing Night Cream

Mar/13/2010

Good cream, not excellent, not bad, helps a bit when you lack sleep, but I haven't seen much of a "repairing" promisses. It was OK, I bought it only once, at first (first week of using) I thought it was really good, after that I was not so impressed. It helps a bit concerning tiredness etc., but regarding moisturization or anti-age, 'repairing' effects - not much really …Read more

Polishes - CHANEL - Gondola #499

Yes, it is a very 80's color, more plummy than burgundy on my nails, with some red shimmer. Actually the color is too dark for me and looks very dull & boring: I don't like it.

(It is very similar to No. 215 Red Dream, but Red Dream is more brownish... Red Dream suits me better IMO, although I am cooltoned, and definitely looks more interesting).

Concealers - CHANEL - LIFT LUMIÈRE CONCEALER Smoothing and Rejuvenating Eye Contour Concealer

This is probably one of the worst concealers that I have ever had. I got it in color No.20 - Rose, the lightest no.10 - Beige is too yellow for me and the darkest of the three, 30 - Abricot too dark for me.

The color looked good under the artificial light when I tried it in a department store, but after I've purchased it I have been very disappointed.: it is a washed out, horrible …

Fragrances - By Kilian - A Taste of Heaven

2.0

Inspired by absinthe, but less 'medicinal' on my skin than Straight to Heaven. Beside bergamot, I can smell a lot of lavender oil here, too, and oak moss in the drydown (with some warmer tobacco notes, as paschat said).

Not especially pleasant fragrance to me, I wouldn't wear it.

Very acrid start, 'medicinal', sharp, pungent notes. Doesn't develop into something much more pleasant, it stays rather bitter, thin, green-alcoholic fragrance on my skin. Completely unpleasant to me.

Mascara - Lancôme - Oscillation Vibrating Infinite Mascara

4.0

Pretty good mascara: it gives volume and length, it has a nice sleek brush and it is much easier to handle it than I thought. It is so easy to pick all lashes, even the tinniest one, with it.

It makes almost perfect thick lashes, but it weigh them down a bit after a while. Nice black color, too.

Fragrances - Les Parfums de Rosine - Poussiere de Rose

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/09/2009

The opening is bitter and 'medicinal' but also somehow fresh, full of excitement and promising -- very interesting.
Then it develops into a nice, full, rich rose fragrance, but not only a dull rose fragrance: it combines rose with plum, incense, tea and cinnamon. It has some almost antique quality, like someone said.

I wouldn't buy it for me, but it is a nice …
