Cleansers - First Aid Beauty - Face Cleanser

4.0

Apr/11/2012

I've been using the cleanser for over a year; and at first loved it. Now, I'm just kinda liking it. First, it lasts forever. In a year and a half, I've only had to repurchase this twice (currently on my third bottle). Secondly, It's a gentle cleanser. No harsh smells and lathers nicely. Skin doesn't feel tight or dry afterwards. However, I've noticed that as …Read more

Fragrances - Burberry - Body Eau de Parfum

5.0

Oct/12/2011

I'm shocked at the initial low reviews for this fragance. It's absolutely one of my favorites. It smells...different. Very clean. Very classic. I'd venture to say that this fragrance would compliment both older and younger women. It's woodsy, yet has a soft undertone--cashmere-esque. I bought the fragrance and the matching lotion, and plan to buy the gift set once it …Read more

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Angel Eau de Parfum

I'm on the fence about this fragrance. It's so harsh smelling when you put it on. You nearly gag and your eyes water. But then, it dries, and you then smell beautiful... and expensive. Whenever I wear this frangrance, I can still smell it on my clothes (or anything else that was near by when I sprayed it), and generally, after a few hours, the smell is rather pleasant. Although I …Read more

Fragrances - Gucci - Guilty Eau de Toilette

Feb/24/2011

I think this a great fragrance that anyone can wear. It's subtly strong and can easily transition from work day to night out. The gold bottle just adds to grandness that one would associate with something from Gucci. I wouldn't say that this is the most long-lasting perfume that I own but I wouldn't say that this completely melts off after a few hours. It's subtle so …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - AHAVA - Mineral Botanic Water Lily & Guarana Body Wash

Nov/10/2010

Was looking for a gentle exfoliating body wash that I could use daily. This was not it! There are tiny granules that seems to dissolve eventually while using this wash, but this product didn't leave my skin smoother or softer. As a matter of fact, I started breaking out on my chest and back within two weeks of using this stuff. The scent is ok; nothing to write home about. Although the …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Space Cowboy (Stardust)

3.0

Nov/03/2010

I got this Stardust shadow, along with Retrograde, as a sample at Sephora. It was great when I tried them together. I went out and purchased Space Cowboy and I am a bit disappointed. There is basically no color to this shadow, just a whole bunch of sparkle all over my lids. Also, this shadow is very loose, and therefore I had sparkle all over my face. (I've had to apply this using my …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Louvre Me Louvre Me Not

I love purple polish so I undoubtedly had to pick up Louvre Me. It's a pretty purple, but I wouldn't say that it's anything spectacular. It has a bit of pink in it, so it has to be coated a few times before you get a solid color. A shiny topcoat is a must to help this polish truly stand out. I like it... just not running to buy this again when it runs out.

Polishes - OPI - Let Me Entertain You

Love this color! My nail salon actually had this color before it was released for consumer sale, so I'd been eyeing it for weeks! Love this pink color! It's very rich and has sparkle that is very evident in light. As the previous reviewer mentioned, one coat is all it takes and you're ready to go. I always apply two coats and found that with this color, it deepened the color …Read more

Mascara - Fresh - Firebird Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/21/2010

I kinda like this mascara. It applies softly and gives a hint of color. It's not voluminizing but rather feathers the lashes. Big and bold is not always the look I'm going for, so this works nice on days when make up needs to be pretty and soft. I purchased this miniature duo of this and Fresh's Supernova mascara. While I don't plan on repurchasing the Supernova, I am …Read more
