Lip Treatments - La Mer - The Lip Balm

I honestly don't understand how this particular lip balm wins beauty awards year after year. It's a mint infused torture balm. My lips are on fire and almost numb, simultaneously. If one has dry lips, how is putting an irritant on them going to help? Maybe it's me..but I sort of don't think so. So, in conclusion, I hate this stuff. Would never repurchase.

I was kind of let down with this blush. I had heard/read a lot of hype around the entire range, and more specifically this shade..and the hype didn't live up to it, for me at least. When Armani says "sheer"..they really mean it. I'm..in MAC terms something like..NC10, and I feel that this color is too light for me. The powder is very soft and finely milled, which is good, but …Read more

Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur #146 Romantic Pink

Jul/23/2010

I agree with a lot of what the previous reviewer said. I would describe the color as a medium neutral pink, veering slightly toward cool...but barely. I disagree with the comparison to Rouge Volupte 19 Frivolous Pink, on me at least. Romantic Pink is as I said, mostly neutral toned, on me at least. I love the way the Rouge Purs wear..very lightweight and pigmented and smooth...and considerably …Read more

To put it in simple terms, I absolutely love this lipstick. I love the formula of the Rouge Purs (very smooth and opaque as well as long lasting), the scent (black currant and roses), and most of all, the amazing color. I would describe this lipstick as a peachy-pink nude. Yeah, I said it, nude. A lot of people hate the term "nude", but to me, this shade falls in that category. If you …Read more

I cannot believe that I waited so long to buy this one! Out of all the RVs I own, which is many, it's probably the most wearable. Unlike some of the other shades within this range, you can just slap this one on and not worry about blending or tidying or anything. I agree with those that say this is a muted, more wearable or daytime friendly version of 13 Peach Passion. I also think pretty …Read more

I really love this lipstick. I have several of the Rouge Voluptes, but for some reason, this shade continues to be my favorite. I think of it as a very original shade, in a sense. I can't think of a dupe for it, because the texture and color are so specific to this product, if that makes any sense. As long as one is careful in application, I think a lot of people could wear this. Having said …Read more

Conditioner - Bumble and bumble - quenching conditioner

I bought this after I realized I couldn't tolerate the scent or rather, odor of the Super Rich conditioner. I am pleased to say that this conditioner has a very pleasant and light fruity floral aroma. I can't figure out precisely which fruit or flower, I just know that it smells quite nice. I bought this conditioner specifically because of the scent, preferring it over that of the …Read more

Polishes - OPI - lucky lucky lavender

Jul/13/2010

The 80s called, and they don't even want this nail polish back. I thought that it was going to have an opaque finish: wrong. It takes 3 coats for full coverage..and the finish of it is very lack luster, literally and figuratively speaking. I think it would be best suited for a 7 yr old girl that doesn't care that the brush is too large and that the overall product is inferior to the …Read more

Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte - Peach Passion #13

May/05/2010

Put in simple terms, I really like this lipstick. The color is a balance of peach and pink, with an opaque, smooth finish. I feel that it's a vibrant/vivid color, but not garish (in my opinion). I also think that this could serve as a decent dupe of Lancome Chris & Tell lipstick for those, such as myself, that weren't able to get their hands on one during its limited release …Read more
