Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Hot Tahiti Lipstick

I have found the MLBB lipstick I've been searching for. A tender, juicy and natural red that makes me look young, fresh. I would buy all the tubes I can get my hands on if MAC discontinues it

Lipstick - NIVEA - Volume Shine Ultra Glossy

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/17/2010

I have the colors Toffee #4 and Cacao #5. Toffee is a muted rose brown that is MLBB; Cacao a soft reddish brown. Both are warm colors which suit my tanned olive skin. Usually nude lipsticks look blue-pink or gray on me. These are sheer and shiny but not smeary which is good with me because I don't like to wear lip liner. Although I don't notice a volumizing effect, I like the colors and …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre Lipstick - Hug Me

This is a soft, uncomplicated nude without a weird gray or silvery cast. The lustre formula works; too many nudes are opaque and flat. Clinique Blushing Nude is my favorite but this is a close second.

This does not look good with my tan-olive skin. The formula is smooth, the scent is fine but this shade is just too purple-gray to look good on me. I can just about make it work with nude lipgloss on top

Fragrances - Gucci - Envy ME

5.0

Funny that this is called Envy Me because it's such a lovely, light-hearted perfume. I like that it's fruity without the usual sickening notes of melon or peach. This tickles the nose with bright pomegranate, blossoms into a shy pink rose and mellows to a soft musk. I love the rose wine color and the pretty bottle. It fades faster than my other perfumes but I don't really mind.

Fragrances - KENZO - Flower Eau de Parfum Spray

2.0

May/16/2009

Kenzo Flower is a dense mix of powder and violets, maybe some vanilla/wood in the dry down. Unlike other scents that fade after a while, this just gets stronger and headier. The powder dominates all other notes, and really, if I want to smell like a baby's bottom I'll just roll around in some cheap baby powder instead of paying $$$ for this.

It's ironic that …

Fragrances - Ralph Lauren - Glamourous

This scent is an olfactory onslaught! I can't make out the notes, it's such a big smack-in-the-face of lillies, hairspray, and something harsh, maybe insect repellant. The bottle is a beautiful glass cylinder with a pretty jewel in the cap, hence two lippies. I'm just glad I got this as a gift

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Frost Lipstick in O

5.0

I bought this because it's supposed to be a Clinique Suprise lookalike. It's close but a bit warmer because of the red/bronze shimmer. On its own it doesn't really stand out. But it adds so much depth to other lip colors in my stash; depending on which lip liner or gloss I pair it with, O can be red, plum, nude. An unusual and beautiful color, in a smooth formulation.

Lip Gloss - RIMMEL - Vinyl Lip - Snog [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Apr/25/2009

Snog is a very flattering pink-berry gloss with enough brown in it to add a fleshy tone and very fine silver shimmer. For reference, I have olive skin with pigmented lips so most glosses go on clear. But this makes my lips look luscious and, well, snoggable :-)

Lip Treatments - Labello - Pearl & Shine

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/13/2008

I use this under dark lipsticks to add softness and depth. It can look weird and pasty if I swipe on more than a couple of times and it's thicker than the other Labello balms because of the high mica crystal content. Faint floral scent that fades in a few minutes.
