I absolutely love this scent and am horrified to find that the respective shampoo and conditioner are discontinued. The scent is sweet and, true to its label, sunny. It’s a vanilla type scent but less a foody smell and more of a semitropical floral Eau d’Italie Morn to Dusk type. Cleans well, lathers gently, rinses clean with no tightness of dryness. I’m seriously considering using it as shampoo …Read more

Very, very good concealer with excellent coverage and minimal creasing under the eye. Great bendability. The color that matches me, P30, is darker than I would have picked for myself so my feeling is that these run light. (I use the foundation drops in N20 but could probably go a shade darker.) As is always the case, I hate wand applicators but this is thicker than most and so I don't have …Read more

Cleansers - Paula's Choice - DEFENSE Hydrating Gel-to-Cream Cleanser

I like this a lot, and I have sensitive skin. It’s a thicker gel and a little goes a long way. The scent is mild and not unpleasant as is the case with the Earth Sourced cleanser, which I love in every aspect except scent. Takes all makeup off and rinses cleanly. Totally irrelevant, but I also like the bright pink packaging.

Sep/30/2018

This is among the very few moisturizers I can use on my face when I have sensitivity from chemical peels (BHAs, AHAs) and Vitamin C. This calms everything right down, really to an amazing degree. The scent is very mild. (It's fragrance free but smells kind of oily from the ingredients.) The texture is liquidy. It might be the only think I don’t like, as its a little hard to control the …Read more

I’ve used this in neon purple (when my hair was dark purple) and natural brown (as my hair is now medium brown). It's a very good color depositing conditioner that moisturizes and tones. I leave it on about five minutes but you can go longer and you should if you want deeper/richer results.

For purple, I definitely prefer Overtone deep treatment (in extreme purple) as it is …

I use it every night. If I don’t, my lips start peeling within days. It’s not my favorite lip balm; that honor belongs to Nuxe. But this one is very effective and like Nuxe, it lasts on my lips all night. just doesn’t smell quite as nice.

I went to Paris this spring on vacation, and this is what I brought back as my present to me. I even had it made in a black bee bottle with "Paris 2018" engraved on the front in silver.

Why?

Well, if I didn't already have a bottle of Cuir Beluga and several of Shalimar in all forms, I would have gotten one of those, but this is a beautiful scent and I am …

I bought this in "Chutney" today and I think it might be the most flattering lipstick color I have ever worn. I'm NW20 or so right now and this is a dressy MLBB shade on me. Five stars from me for the color, high pigmentation, and semigloss satiny finish, which I like very much.

The caveat, as others have mentioned, is that his does not perform the way most …

While I love an animal of jasmine, this lives on the opposite side of the field. Slightly sweet, earthy, almost powdery, but fresh. It’s a paradox of dark purple liquid and sunshiny jasmine. I find it extremely versatile. I wear it for both formal and casual occasions. It’s not a seductive jasmine—it’s somewhat youthful. Probably because I spent much of my youth in 1980s Christian Dior Poison …Read more

This is a 100% guaranteed to get compliments fragrance for me. My husband absolutely devours me when I wear this. My favorite way is to dilute the body lotion with a fragrance free lotion and apply to my upper arms and lower legs. Then I wear his other favorite scent (a rose one) on my wrists and the back of my neck. He can never tell where the scent is coming from and it drives him crazy to get …Read more
