Sorry to add to the poor ratings, but I am sorely disappointed in this pencil also:
Pros:
- Portable crayon, great for on the go
- Beautiful antique gold bronze
- Perfect complement for my green eyes
- Swatches beautifully on my hand
Cons:
- Expensive
- Needs sharpening, but doesn't include a sharpener
- Cheap plastic cap doesn't fit and close well …

Liquid - CHANEL - Les Beiges Eau De Teint Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Since EvaVic has provided her comprehensive, expertly description of this product, I will only add a few personal comments how I use this product and what I view as its main characteristics.
In short: This sheer hydrating “foundation” fluid is really all it takes for my skin to look its best. I rarely wear foundation, but what I am after every day is the coveted glow. My skin is on the drier …

Lip Gloss - Edward Bess - Deep Shine Lip Gloss

2.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

Nude Satin is the shade I purchased and it's my lips but a tad deeper, so it's the perfect color for a polished look. I tried this shade applying with a q-tip on the back of my hand at the counter and since I wouldn't use public testers of lip products for hygienic reasons I was hoping for the best, took the plunge and bought it for $35. And the shade is in fact as beautiful on my …Read more

Blush - TOM FORD - Cheek Color - Inhibition

5.0

8 months ago

While I admittedly have to run out and purchase every new eye shadow quad Tom Ford puts out I have so far only bought one other of his blushes, in the shade Frantic Pink. In fact, I have even re-purchased that shade, because I find it so perfect, fail proof and versatile on my light neutral complexion (BB Porcelain, Chanel 20, Mac N/NW15). I just recently added the shade Inhibition after eyeing …Read more

Dyson Supersonic,, where do I start?
I was beyond thrilled to receive this dryer as a gift a year ago for the holidays, at the time I had much longer hair, and lots of it, so I was looking forward to cutting the tedious drying time and getting shiny, frizz free, wonderful hair.
Design and Handling:
- looks cool, I liked the fuchsia/grey combination
- nice to the touch and the …

Achiever is the perfect shade for my pigmented lips to enhance and define them in the most natural way. So the shade is truly a winner for me. Why only three stars?
Pros:
- bronze colored metal stylo tube is both elegant and practical
- perfect nude-pink-brown shade for my light complexion with pigmented lips
- creamy, comfortable consistency
Cons:
- Lasting power …

Moisturizers - La Mer - The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/28/2018

I strongly recommend checking out the very first review of this reformulated cream by EvaVic - I agree 100% with her excellently written assessment in every respect.
Suffice to say that this is another reformulation disaster from La Mer! The original La Mer Gel Cream was perfect!. It makes zero sense to make a product that is geared toward oily skin and add lots of oils to its formulation …

Fragrances - TOM FORD - Fleur de Portofino

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/17/2018

Fleur de Portofino has been launched in 2015 but I just recently got around to testing it and I am surprised at how different it is from the other citrus inspired Tom Ford fragrances that started with Neroli Portofino - also note that the picture heading this review entry that someone posted is actually for Neroli Portofino, and not for Fleur de Portofino. The two bottles have a different color …Read more
