Fragrances - By Kilian - Rose Oud - Eau de Parfum

A beautiful oud for someone who shies away from ouds. Most ouds smell horrible on me, and I typically gravitate towards florals, but I found this to be incredibly wearable. The lasting power is excellent. It's a well crafted oud with a beautiful, sweet rose. That said, though, way too expensive for a re-purchase.

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Mia

This didn't do a single thing for my face!
I'm very good about cleansing my skin thoroughly, and toning and exfoliating as needed, so all of that talk about how much "gunk" people find on their Clarisonic brushes is totally beyond me. It's all hype!
That said, though, if you don't have a good habit of cleaning your face and removing your makeup thoroughly …

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #217 Blending

I've had this brush for nearly ten years now! And I keep finding new ways to use it. It's such a versatile brush.
I use it for a variety of eyeshadow applications, and now I've started to use it to buff in concealer over my blemishes!
I wouldn't rate this a 5, however, because it could be a bit softer when used for eyeshadow application.

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush - BBR Collection

Call it the MAC effect, but I'd been dreaming of this brush for ages! And now that I've finally gotten my hands on the 2011 re-release, I'm sorely disappointed. I was able to choose the two I purchased from the lot and they were all very inconsistent. Some were domed, some were tapered, but none nearly as tapered as the original.
Now that I've used the brush, I'm …

My hair just drinks this stuff up! I have dry, damaged color treated hair and I've been thrilled with Bumble & Bumble's quenching and mending lines.
This one makes my hair feel so much fuller and stronger and I see results instantly when I work it through after conditioning. Because it's in a pretty skinny tube, I save it for those days when my hair is feeling really dull …

I have dry, damaged color treated hair and Bumble & Bumble's quenching line has been such a blessing! After using Kerastase for a number of years, I'm so glad they came out with this line. It is very moisturizing, without leaving any residue or feeling unclean. I definitely see the results with this one.

This is my HG waterproof eyeliner for the waterline! I've tried everything, including Urban Decay, MUFE, Benefit, and MAC and none of them have stayed put better than this. It's super easy to use and I've repurchased numerous times over the years. Absolutely essential for me!

This is my HG eyeliner! I used to use MAC's Liquid Eyeliner in Boot Black for years, but I finally decided it was time to venture out. I tried everything from Japanese brands Kate to K-Palette, as well as Lancome and Dior and nothing compares to this.
It is a liquid eyeliner that has a sharp, easy to use felt tip. Of all the liners I've tried, this one dries the quickest. It stays …

Moisturizers - Lancôme - Blanc Expert Neurowhite X3 Ultimate Hydrating Cream

Mar/10/2010

Wasn't thrilled with this product. It's a decent night time moisturizing cream for oily/combination skin and gives good hydration, but doesn't do anything else. Hasn't brightened up my complexion in the least bit and no whitening effect on hyperpigmentation. I'd say skip this cream and stick to the Blanc Expert Spot Eraser serum, which is actually effective against …Read more
