Fragrances - Ava Luxe - Cashmere Musk

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/29/2011

Based on the reviews below, I never would've tried this scent on my own, but thankfully, Serena included a sample of the oil with the gift of Angel Face I received for Christmas. I seriously cannot get over how great this smells on my skin. From the bottle and upon initial application, it's a blast of clean, bright musk with green notes--not my favorite type of smell, but completely …Read more

Fragrances - Ava Luxe - amande

Nov/17/2011

Ah, this scent makes me so happy! And hungry. The simplest way to describe this scent for any of you who might've tried Ava Luxe already is to say that if, while wearing Love's True Bluish Light, you opened a Christmas panettone that had been soaked in Amaretto you'd know what Amande smells like fresh out of the atomizer. It's sweet, sweet, sweet! I have to admit that even …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Farmacia SS. Annunziata dal 1561 - Cara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/07/2011

I have no problem with the fact that Cara smells of Play-doh and sugar wafers because the combination is comforting and mildly amusing, but I do have a problem with it's lack of sillage and longevity. It's way too fleeting and unoriginal to warrant such a high price. I would recommend passing on this and looking into Ava-luxe Heliotrope instead.

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Farmacia SS. Annunziata dal 1561 Regina

Oct/07/2011

If you've ever picked up a bottle of baby powder only to realize you forgot to twist the opening shut and been blasted in the face with a cloud of powder, you now know what it was like for me to apply this to my skin. I instinctively jerked my wrist far from my nose. First 60 seconds: baby powder, straight up. After that, I got hairspray and the baby powder turned to powdered makeup …Read more

Fragrances - Parfumerie Generale - Tonkamande

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/07/2011

Notes: almond milk, aldehydes, tonka bean, wheat, sandalwood, vanilla, amber

Y'all are going to have to bear with me here because the best way I can describe this scent is through nostalgic references and I know that's not always the most helpful way, but I am going to give it a good shot.

I am an 80's baby and I can vividly recall the scent of Rose Petal …

Fragrances - GAP Beauty - White Amber

5.0

Apr/03/2011

White Amber is such a little gem hidden amongst the usual suspects of TJMaxx/Marshalls' fragrance sections. I picked it up one day and decided to put it back (Did I really need another unsniffed purchase under my belt? No.) only to come here that night and read glowing reviews and feel regret. I went back the next day and all four bottles were still there. Phew.

The things I most …

Fragrances - Celine - Fever (pour femme)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/25/2008

Top Notes: Mandarin, Blood Orange
Middle Notes: Frangipani, Jasmine
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Vanilla

I can't fully describe what I smell, as I can't confidently single out many of the notes listed above. It smells "cool"--for want of a better word--which I'd assume is the amber and "thick" which could be the jasmine, frangipani and …

Fragrances - Ava Luxe - Loukhoum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2006

I honestly never thought it possible to find my one true HG fragrance--a fragrance that surpassed anything I've ever smelled. Sure I've had HGs for a certain category, but Loukhoum is a true HG for me. I don't think it's likely I'll ever find something that appeals to me more. From here on out, this will be my standard. I've always preferred gourmand scents over any …Read more

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Revlon Super Lustrous in Nude Peach LE

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/25/2006

I have finally found my HG nude lipgloss. This is a major feat for me since most end up washing me out or not covering the pigment of my lips well enough. The name of the color describes it best since it is indeed a nude peach and a couple of swipes replaces the natural rosey color of my lips with a pale peach sheen that complements my NC25 skin perfectly. I was so hesitant to try this color b/c …Read more

Scrubs - mark. - Honey Royale Cleansing Face Scrub

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/13/2005

I'm in love with this scrub! First of all, the package design is cheery and adorable to look at. Housed in this happy-looking tube is a deep vanilla and honey scented wonder. I've been using it for over a week straight and my skin is thanking me from the bottom of every pore! My skin has taken on a new glow. The gentle scrub particles slough off whatever gross substances collect on it …Read more
