I received a deluxe sample of this and I've been using it for about a week. It was really shocking to me how many people think this smells like fish, both here and in reviews on other sites. I don't smell fish at ALL. To me it smells VERY strongly of freshly zested orange. Very, very strong orange scent and I don't understand why they felt the need to make it so overpowering. It …Read more

I bought this lipstick based on swatches I've seen online and the generally good reviews. The color has been described by many as being a neutral rosy nude. I have to say this was not the case for me, and on my lips it is a straight up terra cotta orange/brown. Absolutely hideous on my lips. I can't believe that this has been described as a cool or neutral color, so it must really just …Read more

This is currently my favorite perfume. On me, has the warm sweetness of honey, with a hint of rose and sandalwood behind it.The other notes don't really seem to come out for me. Really, really lovely and not sickly sweet at all. I think this could be worn year round, but I like it best as a fall/winter fragrance. Unfortunately, it doesn't last very long, so I do have to reapply later in …Read more

I really don't know how I feel about these. I got Iconic and Supermodel, and they're both really nice colors, but the texture is so odd that I don't know how long I'll be able to stand wearing them. They feel great at first, but after a few minutes they "set" and become very dry and matte. Some lip balm or gloss solves this, but then they don't last as long. And …Read more

I am nw20 at the moment and I wear this in shade 02 Blond. This is a beautiful foundation for summer. I get very oily in the summer, and this foundation has held up better than most anything I've tried. The only thing that has lasted longer for me is Revlon's Colorstay, but it breaks me out horribly. I've also tried Lancome Teint Idole Fresh Wear and Estee Lauder Double Wear Light …Read more

I am really not sure why I like his serum so much, but at the same time, I feel like I *need* it. I've been using it almost nightly for a few weeks now. I don't exactly see any specific improvements, but I feel like my skin looks fresher and brighter and just... better somehow. Placebo effect? Maybe, but when I don't use it, I notice that my skin looks dull and blah. It seems like …Read more

Pretty disappointed with this. I've tried it about 5 or 6 times now, and I haven't noticed that it makes any difference in the life of my nail polish. It works about as well as any other base coat I've tried.

I love love love love this stuff. Love. It makes my hair feel light, silky, shiny, and frizz-free. I don't love the price tag, but I think it's worth it. I have long hair that is partially wavy, partially curly, lots of frizz and pouf, lots of heat damage. When I use this, I can blowdry my hair straight in less time and I often don't even bother with my flat iron. It has almost no …Read more

I bought this in Lacquered Brown. I'm happy with the staying power and sheen of this lipstick, but Lacquered Brown ended up being way too dark and, well... brown. My own fault I guess, but I was really hoping it would be more sheer. It's a nice color, but not on me. It's brown with a plum tinge, and if I apply two layers of it it basically looks like a cocoa colored 90s style brown …Read more
