Flora Eau Fraiche is a rather unique sweet-floral clean scent with excellent longevity. As other reviewers have mentioned, it does have a strong soap flair (which I actually like), but it's tempered by bright florals, a touch of herbal green, and a subtle warmth. It actually reminds me of the older Herbal Essences scents from the '90s, before they all became sickeningly fruity. For an …Read more
I want to love this, but I can't quite move past just really liking it. This is unusual and unquestionably beautiful - woodsy, slightly powdery, elegant yet not obnoxiously chic - but some component that would make it magical is missing (at least for me). Still rated as a buy-again as it is a pleasure to wear.
This is the longest-lasting yet easiest to apply foundation I have tried. I've been loyal to Revlon's "regular" liquid CS for years (the oily/combo version), and I think I like this better. I bought the same shade I've used in the liquid, Buff, and the color match was great (for reference, I'm blonde and blue-eyed but my undertone is neutral, borderline warm). No …Read more
This is a great buy. Highly pigmented, does not budge, and you can't beat the price. The downsides are almost that it's *too good* - once it's on, it dries very quickly and is hard to smudge to soften, and it is very difficult to take off. The other gel/creme eyeliners I have tried include Bobbi Brown, Physician's Formula, and Maybelline - so far this is the longest lasting …Read more
Very good gentle but thorough cleanser. I find it removes even Revlon CS foundation and (almost all) waterproof mascara. I also use it to clean my makeup brushes since it's so inexpensive. I'm worried it's been discontinued, though - I can't find it except in stores with very low turnover :(
On paper, this sounded right up my alley. In reality, this is one of the most unappealing fragrances I've tried. While I can smell the soft lavender and vanilla, they are overridden by an overwhelming SWAMP note that does not go away! It smells like getting too close to a toad and trying to cover it up by spraying him in room fragrance.
I am really, really enjoying the sample I ordered, though I'm not blown away. Soft, clean, and warm without any glaring notes (at least not to my admittedly still-learning nose); it stays close to the skin with a scent that reminds me of an expensive body lotion. I haven't smelled a lot like it, though it does remind me a bit of DKNY Pure Verbena with it's soft, simple structure …Read more
I've been using gel/creme eyeliner almost exclusively for about a year and have tried about 7 or 8 brushes so far. This my favorite, without question. I can draw so much more neatly than with any of the others I've tried (most notable probably being Sephora's Pro Angled Eyeliner Brush). I always have had trouble making the outer edge of my gel eyeliner stay close to my lashline …Read more
I'm impressed with the richness of color, ease of use, and staying power of this product. I wore this (over eyelid primer) and it stayed almost completely on for around 15 hours. That said, I don't know if I'll buy again due to the weird blueish gray undertone. After I apply eyeliner, I usually smudge it (slightly) with a cotton swab to soften the line - I found the smudged area to …Read more
