Fragrances - Philosophy - The Fragrance

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/01/2009

I found this at Marshall's for around $30 and since I love Philosophy fragrances, I picked it up. This starts out so lovely, a lemony soapy scent. But something godawful happens during the drydown; I smelled like man. I was in the mall with this stuff on and swore some guy walked by me with cheap cologne on. But alas, I soon found out it was my own scent that was offending me. This …Read more

Eye Shadow - LORAC - Green Room

5.0

Jul/27/2009

I have never seen such a gorgeous green shadow. It's a shimmery emerald color that will look amazing on brunette, brown-eyed beauties. Lasting power and pigment payoff is excellent under UDPP. Price might seem a little high for some, but product lasts forever. Will buy again and again.

Polishes - Orly - Dazzle

Jul/25/2009

Looove this shade! A flashy, in-your-face metallic silver. No chunky glitter in sight, just a smooth shimmer. Might be too much for some on hands, but I personally think it looks great. Then again, I have crazy nail polish taste. Can't wait til my next pedi cause it'll look even more amazing on toes. Doesn't show brushstrokes and I got even coverage in just 2 coats. Dries …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2009

I too had fallen victim to the hype, broke down and finally purchased Orgasm. I tried to make myself like it (isn't it funny how if we don't like a popular product, we're somehow wrong/crazy and second guess ourselves?) but couldn't. It barely showed up on my olive/tan skin so I had to apply a lot of product (which is a waste for a blush that is $24 a pop). As a result of …Read more

Fragrances - J. Lo - Glow

May/26/2009

I'm on a soapy scent kick again and have renewed my search for shower-fresh fragrances. I previously avoided Glow like the plague because I usually abhor celebrity scents. When I heard that Glow smells like soap, I rushed out to Ulta to give it a try. Maybe I'd been missing out on a good thing. I wore it all day and came to the conclusion that it does indeed smell like soap: a …Read more

Fragrances - CLEAN - Lather

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2009

I loooove this perfume. Got a 1 ounce bottle at Marshall's for $7.99 (and we all know how extravagant Clean retail prices are), so this is a major steal. Came home, tried it on, and went back to the store to grab the other two bottles. I am hoarding this stuff because it's just that good. Smells like my mom in that it smells like pink Dove soap. Lasts much longer than Clean Fresh …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Bare Truth

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/07/2009

Looove this gloss! It is a perfect sheer brown/nude shade with a slight shimmer that looks gorgeous on my NC42 skin. I find the formula a bit thick (which is to be expected of lipglass) but I don't mind because it lasts longer. I was worried that this wouldn't show up on my non-pigmented lips very well. Bare Truth has just the right amount of color to be subtle, but noticeable. The …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - For Audrey

5.0

May/07/2009

This is one of the most gorgeous and unique nail colors I've ever laid eyes on. My eyes gravitated right towards this at the China Glaze display at my local Sally's. This is a fabulous robin's egg blue, and IMO matches a Tiffany's box quite closely. Smooth creme formula with a shiny finish, which is exactly how I prefer my polish. Dries pretty quickly as well. Looks …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Solar Power

3.0

May/07/2009

This is a shimmery sunny yellow color, which I'd like more if it were a creme finish. This was thick upon application and took forever to dry (even with the dryer at the nail salon). Also, not very shiny, even with a topcoat. I have this on my fingers right now, but I think it would look better on my toes. This shade gets lots of attention (I guess people think yellow is a shocking nail …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam II

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/06/2009

I was looking for the perfect pink nude and the MUA at MAC suggested Viva Glam II. This color is a pinky-gray on me and I love it! I was scared I would look corpse-like, but this shade actually works on my NC42 skintone. My lips aren't pigmented so I get the true color of this lipstick, which is gorgeous. I've never paired it with liner or gloss; I think it stands on its own …Read more
