I was immediately intrigued when I saw Gold Sugar on Sephora's site. I love orange blossom, I love musk, how could I go wrong with the notes listed in Gold Sugar? I was thisclose to ordering unsniffed and I am so glad I didn't!

I happened to walk by it in Sephora today, just browsing around...oh, who am I kidding, I had a laser set out for finding this. Now, I love love …

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser from Palomar

Jan/26/2011

UPDATE (3/4/2011): I have used this daily, as instructed, for the first month and am now using it every other day or so for maintenance. Again, I only had very fine lines when I began, but they are barely there now, including between my eyes and around my mouth. I can honestly say the area especially around my eyes and between my eyes is more firm and my eyes just look more refreshed. The …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Belize

See picture above, I swatched it on white paper for reference.

Another pretty, but not outstanding gloss from Nars. It's described as 'pink mauve sprinkled with specks of gold'. It definately isn't as light as the Nars site would make you think. I though it would at least be a little more milky/opaque judging by the picture. It reminds me of a slightly lighter …

"Matte teal with silver particles"...Nars is certainly correct in this description. The matte teal part is a stunning deep teal...azure comes to mind...however, the particles part should have come with a warning! If you've been to a craft store and needed glitter, and wanted to spend very little on it, these 'silver particles' are what you'd get. Seriously. If …Read more

I have to echo Melissa below! I LOVE this shade and I adore the packaging! Yes it seems bulky, but it's different. Everyone that knows me knows that I have something for my lips on my person at all times, be it gloss or balm or lipstick and this is fun to pull out! It has substance to it, not flimsy or cheap at all, but not OTT cutesy either.

As for the color, it's …

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish in Perfect Topping (2009) [DISCONTINUED]

I added a picture up top, as you can see, mine does't have much lavendar at all. There's just the tiniest touch way off to the side. At first I was disappointed when I got it home because of this, but now I realize the lavendar wouldn't have been what I liked so much about this particular shade.

This is what I wanted Shimpagne and Soft & Gentle to be!! It gives me …

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen - Creme Anglaise

Feb/04/2009

The texture of the new Cremesheen Glosses compare to the feel of NARS' creamier glosses. There isn't too much slip, but they do feel slightly creamy, which to me is a good thing, as it makes for a better staying lipgloss, I'm not a fan of too much 'slip'.

Creme Anglaise is a pretty, slightly sheer muted medium pink with no shimmer. However, I don't …

I included a picture with the reviews of this gloss above, comparing it to Dior's Clutch Pink (517). I just bought this from Sephora and I absolutely love it! I know it seems to be on the boring side, but I'm not a huge fan of high maintenance lip colors since I like to be able to apply them without a lot of work/liner/touch-ups (though I don't mind those with the right look …Read more

Oct/14/2008

I just got this in the mail from Nordstrom. I honestly can't believe I paid $50 for a scrub and body cream, as I could have come close to buying a bottle of perfume! I initially tested it at my local Nordies though and I have to say, it's a gorgeous, comforting scent! It's not overly 'foody' at all, and anything that could end up too sweet is toned by a little …Read more

Sep/23/2008

I too fell for the 'there's only 20 in the whole State' and said "I'll take it!" the second I sniffed it on my arm. I bought mine while at the Nordstrom Trend Show off the shelf as well. I get mostly the spicy vanilla and a gorgeous, warm amber. The amber isn't too powdery and not too masculine or animalistic either. It's been such a long time that a …Read more
