I first purchased this fragrance in 2000, and I still wear it on a regular basis today (almost 20 years later). It is described as a youthful, girlish fragrance - and it can be, but I think it is versatile enough to be used by much older people, and men. The scent is sweet and a bit powdery, but overall, clean and very very fresh.

When worn by a man I think the nose intuits …

Foundations - FLOWER Beauty - E.E Erase Everything in UF1

Apr/12/2016

Ugh. I bought this expecting a white foundation (it markets itself as 'ultimate foundation') but instead got a watery, completely colorless primer with a brush applicator. The applicator is kind of cool, and if I had this in a different shade ( like, one that actually had ANY pigment to it) I might actually like it. As it is, this is a ridiculous price for a watery primer with a …Read more

I was super excited to FINALLY find a shade pale and yellow enough for my extremely pale, yellow skin... and super sad to discover that I can't use it.

First, the color range: I love it. In a sea of orange and pink foundations, the Flower makeup line is the only one that has offerings that look even remotely like my skin. Great for olive tones from Siberia to Nigeria …

Primer/ Corrector - Monistat - Chafing Relief Powder-Gel

Best primer I have used, hands down, at a tiny fraction of the average cost.

I live in Texas and can't recommend it for treating thigh-chafing (I have never found a product that stands up to the summer heat here other than anti-friction shorts) but it does just fine reducing friction elsewhere, like along irritating bra straps, for example.

I love the inclusion of the deep teal and gold shades in this nude palette, as well as the selection of browns (which seemed unusually deep for a nude palette). The gray and black shades are great for building smoke. I won't be buying it again, though not because the product was faulty.... I find that I simply gravitate to warmer, redder shades, and mattes over glitter. But that's a …Read more

My skin tends to be a bit dry, and this moisturizer was not effective for me at all. The fragrance was a bit overwhelming. I enjoyed the mattifying effect, the way it looked and felt on my skin directly after application, and it seemed to be aiding in exfoliation, although I am not totally sure about that. But the longer i had it on my face, the drier it felt. I tried putting it on before bed and …Read more

I have this in Twinkling Taupe. I was torn about trying it at first - the product looked rather 'glittery' and I don't usually go for that kind of thing, especially in a lip product. However, on wearing it, the 'glitter' is practically invisible, just serving to catch a bit of light. The feel of the balm is very good: silky, not gritty or tacky at all. There is a faint …Read more
