I have to say, I love this brush and would not be without it. I know the reviews are mixed - but I consider this an absolute staple and would encourage everyone that uses gel or liquid liner to have it in their stash. Sometimes a product doesn't have to be "everything" or perfect in every way to be essential. That's what this brush is.

Pros: It's precise …

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Angel eau Sucree

After a brief opening of overripe fruit, then cherry Play-doh is all I get. It's non-offensive and long lasting. It's ending is a bit like the fruit and play-doh got thrown into the dumpster, in a mellow sort of way. I don't find this at all traditionally sweet - Sucree is more like a European dessert compared to an American one.

I'm sure I'm missing …

Fragrances - Annick Goutal - Musc Nomade

Gorgeous, just gorgeous. Annick Goutal is a beautiful melder of scents, so that the end result is much, much more then the sum of it's parts. Musc Nomade is slightly animalic, creamy, soft musk, woody, with just a touch of sweetness - enough to satisfy but not overwhelm. It doesn't follow the normal top notes, middle notes, base notes march, but stays grounded in it's base with …Read more

Mure et Musc takes me back in time. It's 1979 and I'm smelling baby doll heads and wearing some fruity kids lipgloss and playing on a musty carpet after I've taken a shower. To be honest, I don't like it.

I love it's initial top notes, candied sparkling berry/citrus with creamy musk. But that left after 5 minutes. I think I should then be smelling basil …

DH comes and sits beside me as I'm reading reviews for Absolue Pour Le Soir, with the sample in my hand. He's getting better about being my fragrance sniffer, so I spray this on, and ask his opinion. He immediately goes "Ewww, Baby Wipes!" HUH?! Baby wipes?! I've just been reading the reviews of beeswax and smoky incense, and my first sniff is warm smokey melting …Read more

This review is for the original red colored Poppy perfume; not the orange Poppy Blossom or purple Poppy Flower. (Note to Coach: It is a bit frustrating to have three fragrances named Poppy and not have them distinctively labeled on all the packaging.) Rant aside, the (red) Poppy is a fragrance I thought I would love in the store, but ended up really disliking. It has everything going for it …Read more

This sunscreen is absolutely worth trying out, whether or not it actually ends up working out for you or not. Because, as a physical SC, it is the most sheer, cosmetically elegant one I have ever tried and is the only one I have personally tried (alot) that looks like I have nothing on. It feels like I have nothing on ever, and gives a very, very slight luminosity if I look hard …Read more

I am completely torn on these, but mostly just not impressed. I received a deluxe sized sample of the coral color. It goes on quite messy and bleeds out over the lip line super easily. You definitely can't apply it without a mirror in front of you. It's got to be the most frustrating lipstick I've tried to apply. It stains fast too. The colors are very opaque, it feels like …Read more

Peach Pop is all that I wanted Tarte's Amazonian Clay to be in Tipsy and as close a match to Tarte's Tipsy Cheek stain then I've seen anywhere else. I love the Peach Pop!! I've been wanting to purchase the AC Tipsy for awhile but my Ulta has been out of stock forever. I have a small sample of the AC at home, so I've been familiar with using the color. When I ran …Read more

UD Naked Liquid Foundation is my first venture away from a mineral makeup foundation and I'm extremely pleased. I've been using it for two weeks and I'm very surprised at it's performance. I've never had good results with liquid foundations, but I think I've been out of the playing field too long and things have changed. I'm an NC20 and use shade 2, but I …Read more
