Lips - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Stain Gloss in Sayonara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/05/2011

I just discovered this lip stain gloss in Sayonara by NARS, and I am really happy with it. I actually get compliments on how flattering my lip color is when I wear it. It has a great texture, sort of like silicone, smooth and blendable. It stains my lips pretty well, but it does come off with drinking and eaiting and time elapsed in varying degrees. What's left on my lips, however, is …Read more

Liquid - GUERLAIN - Parure Gold - Gold Radiance Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/28/2011

I think I've found the perfect foundation for me. I love Guerlain foundations (Parure Extreme, Parure Aqua, and Lingerie de Peau) and Parure Gold is my favorite out of those. It provides perfect coverage, medium to full depending on how much I apply. The end result is luminous perfected skin. It's silky and easy to blend, and the color 02 Beige Clair (I wear MAC NW20 foundation) is the …Read more

I am thoroughly in love with Angelique Noire. It has all the things Guerlain does right with the classical guerlain vanilla but the angelica kicks it up and out of the usual vanilla base. I love wearing this year round and am very glad to have it in my overwhelminf collection of perfumes. If you like Shalimar Light, give Angelique Noire a try too. It is a beautiful scent, no doubt, and it smells …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Insolence Eau de Parfum

Jul/10/2010

I am really surprised to like Insolence as much as I do, since I don't like violet notes in perfumes usually. This however gets the Guerlain treatment and I find it addictive due to that famous Guerlain base (Guerlinade). On me, Insolence is a distinctive and beautiful violet and raspberry scent. reminiscent of Frederic Malle Lipstick Rose, but less powdery and more fruity due to the …Read more

Lip Gloss - Dior - Creme De Gloss 225 - Coral Elixir

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/16/2008

There is nothing I dislike about this product, which means I absolutely love it! And the Coral Elixir color... it is a gorgeous, amazing color, and doesn't look anything like the colors on those Sephora swatches, off of which I bought it untested. It's more pink than coral, maybe a peachy pink, but more of the milky pink side. I was beyond happy with it... it was way better than I had …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Carla Fracci Giselle Eau de Parfum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/19/2008

Carla Fracci Giselle was such a beautiful discovery for me. I had heard about it on the Fragrance Board here and there, and always wondered about it. I finally just bought it unsniffed, and was so happy it worked out so well. Giselle is the second fragrance from Italian ballerina Carla Fracci, and named after her famous ballet, "Giselle." It was released in 2004 or 2005, and has been …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - biehl parfumkunstwerke - Patricia Choux - pc02

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2008

PC02 is a gentle beauty. It's a soft, cashmere-like skin veil of scent, with the notes blending seamlessly into a whisper of a sweet scent. There is a little powdery feel, not unlike Villoresi's Teint de Neige, though that one is more ovbiously powdery. Pc02 is a feminine and light skin scent, but with a persistent presence. It smells of spicy honey and brown sugar, of lavender and …Read more

Fragrances - Parfumerie Generale - L'Oiseau de Nuit

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2008

I guess my review will be bringing down the rating for this a bit at this point, with only two other reviews.... I was disappointed in L'Oiseau de Nuit from the Private Collection, and I love Parfumerie Generale. On my skin it smelled like musty old leather and men's shaving products, but yes, with a powdery sweetness, I'll give them that-- not a good thing. It wasn't a …Read more

Fragrances - Demeter - Honey Lavender

Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2008

Honey and lavender... one of my favorite combinations. I fell in love with these two ingredients when I was in France and purchased a jar of Miel de Lavande or Lavender Honey to use with my teas. I love putting honey in my tea, and lavender honey is perfect to sweeten it up.

A while ago, I learned that Demeter had a Special Edition fragrance called Honey Lavender, and I was sad that …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Gianni Campagna-Vento Canale

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2008

Gianni Campagna Vento Canale was totally worth paying the hefty price and shipping and handling costs in Euros from first-in-fragrance in Germany, and I am so glad I bought it. It seems that only FIF is carrying this at the present time, but Luckyscent might get it someday, as is usually the case. Vento Canale is " "The perfume creation with the euphonious name "Vento Canale" …Read more
