I'll definitely repurchase this, again and again.
I actually have this in DEEP, 3 Shades Darker, and I'm not fair, but I'm far from tanned, and the deep shade has worked very, very well for me -- it doesn't get exactly 3 shades darker per se, unless you spray it repeatedly over the hours, until you reach the desired tone. I sprayed twice very lightly on my legs--the tip …

Fragrances - Vivienne Westwood - Boudoir

I do think this is one of those come-on-and-hither perfmes; sexy. That is, the drydown is sexy. The top note I really do NOT care for, and as it's much too intense, I tried to spray as lightly as possible, but the difference is really no difference at all, so you're left with no choice but to smell the strong, offensive top note for about half an hour. Other reviewers here have already …Read more

Mascara - Bourjois - Maxi Frange

One of the best mascaras I've owned. The primer does its job perfectly, leaving my lashes long and neat, and the mascara pumps up the volume of my lashes without clinging, making them look subtle yet sexy! Totally flattering ;)

Eye Shadow - Everyday Minerals - Cliche

As another reviewer has mentioned, it does look rather odd in the pot, but like other EM shades, it goes on different. Very pretty, shimmery light brown. It's versatile, ranging from subtle to shimmery, with a shade somewhere between floating feathers and chamomile, exactly what I was looking for. I actually use this more as a highlighter for the face--tzone, cheeks,etc. It isn't stark …Read more

I just received a sample of this from a wonderful swapper, and God, this is hands down THE most delicious fragrances ever. The concoction of caramel and vanilla is just driving me nuts. In a good way ;) Unfortunately, though, on me, it doesn't smell as good as it does in bottle. The moment it goes on, I smell something horrifyingly synthetic. Somewhat like an artificial resin, if there IS …Read more

God, this would have been a HG only if the lasting power wasn't so poor! What a shame, because it smells juuust Mmmm.....
It does, however, last longer on warm days. Though most of the time it doesn't, I think I'll be using this quite a while. It smells so sweet I even think I could lick myself if I were delirious enough!

I kept telling myself that this was The Ultimate Coconut scent that I'd been searching for all these years... Everytime I smelled the odd plasticky scent upon first spritz that the CSP claims is heliotrope, I kept deceiving myself that it was quite a nice combo....and every two hours when I had to respray this because of the fly-away lasting power, I told myself it was all good because it …Read more

Loose Powders - Everyday Minerals - Start to Finish Rice Powder - Sunlight

3.0

Aug/14/2008

I wanted to like this a lot, but unlike the other EM finishing powders, doesn't seem to do much for me. It seems to control oil well, but I'm naturally not too oily, so that problem never troubled me.
As for holding the makeup better--I think it does, but again I'm not sure. It's not dramatic change, with or without. I do love the idea of using organic rice as primer …

Fragrances - Burberry - Brit

This is a conflicting fragrance...
I sniff, I like it, and ten seconds later I sniff again I'm not so sure...
Very sweet and vanilla-y, and slightly fruity, which makes what would actually have been quite dull a wearable, even lovable scent.
Again, **sniffsniff**

Fragrances - Dior - Miss Dior Cherie [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

A lovely, sophisticated scent that is at first very strawberry, then mingles well with the sweetly intoxicating carmel.
I can't quite catch all the notes, but they're all harmonious and the green tangerine note lends a sort of sexy appeal to it. There's also a subtle musky note that gives it some depth and makes it very sweet...
A lovely flirty chic-sort of fragrance …
