I have the same one as the picture. I've been epilating with this exact one (which was the first one I ever purchased) for about three years now. I didn't realize how great this one was until I tried an emjoi one and hated it. The Remington has a great shape so that it is easy to grasp and the tip is curved to fit curves beautifully. The tweezers grabbed hair easily and quickly. great …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Pleasures

Gorgeous clean soapy floral with a hint of green. I only use this In The hottest weather since that is when it goes best with my chemistry. Otherwise it can be too much of a good thing and it can feel heavy and overwhelming. I only spray this twice and it lasts all day. Estée Lauder makes quality amazing fragrances and this is one of my favorites. I'm in my mid 30s and I remember smelling …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Coromandel Les Exclusifs de Chanel Eau de Parfum

3.0

Sep/26/2013

This review hurts because I had such high hopes and I love Chanel fragrances so much. Coromandel is a well done beautiful scent, but all that comes through for me is this note of wet moldy earth. I get some of the patchouli and the spices with a hint of sweetness. The notes that comes forward the strongest I just don't like. It's not worth the buy for me.

Fantastic! I had used Seche and Essie's good to go before. I have also tried Sally Hansens and Revlon top coats. This one beats them all an it is less than 2 bucks. Dries quickly, leaves a shine finish that lasts. I'm so happy I read the reviews and gave this a try!

Fragrances - CHANEL - 1932

Feb/22/2013

I was lucky enough to receive a sample of this fragrance and I love it so much I can't wait to buy a bottle. This is the first of the Chanel Exclusifs line that I have sampled, so unfortunately I can't compare it to any of the others from this line.
1932 is meant to be evocative of Chanel's first fine jewelry line. If you look at any Chanel fine jewelry pieces, they are …

Fragrances - CHANEL - No 5 Eau Premiere

Feb/19/2013

Chanel is my favorite fragrance house hands down. I love the original Number 5 and I'm so happy that Chanel did a beautiful job updating this fragrance in Eau Premiere. The whole thing from top note to drydown is gorgeous. The initial opening of bergamot and lemon on my skin stay on throughout till the fragrance fades on me about 6 hours later. The jasmine and rose notes on this are so well …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum

Feb/01/2013

I can see why some have compared this one to Lolita Lempicka. Both have that fruity sweetness with a deeper amber type drydown. This Guerlain however replaces the anise note of Lolita for a cherry note that is fruity while not being overly sugary. I love the tea note in this, it is evident from beginning to end. This scent lasted over eight hours on me, so for lasting power and how smoothly the …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - No.5 Parfum

5.0

Jan/28/2013

Such an iconic fragrance. Most famous I think for its association with Marilyn Monroe. My advice to those first trying it would be to go with the Eau de Toilette. There is a big difference between the concentrations of this fragrance. I have tried them all and while all gorgeous, the most wearable for me are the body products and the edt. You still get the essence of No.5 but in a much lighter …Read more

Nov/16/2012

I had first tried this fragrance during summertime and I hated it. It was overly sweet and too warm. I was cleaning out my fragrance vanity and samples and tried this again from a sample I had forgotten about. I love it so much I went out and bought a bottle! This fragrance for me is perfection during fall and winter months. Now that the weather is cooler and air crisper this fragrance's …Read more

Gorgeous scent. I've had this one for a while, and with most white florals, its an acquired scent for me. At first I used it by itself, and while beautiful, it was a bit sharp on me. Then I thought of blending it with a Jovan White Musk perfume oil (that i had hunted down on ebay, since it's discontinued). It's a perfect combination! I know some have referenced this oil to Child …Read more
