Lip Treatments - Dior - Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2015

I got this balm on a whim. I really enjoy rose scents and this one is exceptional. A true tea rose. This is a creamy balm, not a clear salve like the Smith and Bigelow lip treatments.The jar is not super convenient which is why I use this as my night balm. I apply a little dab before bed and always wake up to smooth lips. Note: the balm is kind of hard on top when you first open it; it take a …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Kiehl's - Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter

5.0

Mar/16/2015

While this body butter has a sinfully lovely texture and is very hydrating, my rave for this product is mainly based on the scent. As a gourmand fragrance junkie, I live for foody scents. This creme smells like honey-infused buttercream. It is sweet without being cloying and the smell dissipates after a while anyway. The light yellow color and whipped texture make this product a dessert souffle …Read more

Lip Treatments - La Mer - The Lip Balm

Mar/11/2015

This is the sort of product I would enjoy as a gift. I feel that any $50 lip product needs to perform amazingly; this balm is just good, not great. The minty scent and sweet taste are pleasant and soothing. The product is smooth and creamy to the touch and looks pretty matte on the lips, but not as matte as Burt's Bees. Easily the best thing about this balm is the texture. It sits on the …Read more

Treatments (Face) - GLAMGLOW - Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/11/2015

I favor sheet masks for at-home facials but wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I have normal skin with no acne, sensitivity, or scars. The Youthmud was the first Glamglow treatment I tried. I use a little plastic spatula with the jar to keep things from getting messy. This greyish mask does dry rather quickly to a chalky opaque finish so be swift with your application. As I was applying …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - AHAVA - Leave-On Dead Sea Mud Dermud Intensive Hand Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/03/2015

This is the answer to dry winter hands. The Ahava Intensive Mud Hand Cream is an ultra rich formula that soothes angry, scaly hands and cuticles. It has a light tan color that turns invisible when rubbed in. If you do not like the feeling of thick, heavy creams on your hands, then this is not the product for you. It takes some time to absorb and it leaves the hands a little slick. For this …Read more

Contour - Anastasia Beverly Hills - contour kit tan to deep

Mar/03/2015

Very disappointed with this kit (MAC C7). Only one shade (bottom center) was actually a contour color. The other five were various incarnations of peach and orange-y tan that served no purpose on my face. The lighter shades were not pigmented enough to be highlighters. The powders in general didn't really adhere to my brushes without a little vigor. In the end, even that one dark shade …Read more

Highlighters - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Illuminizer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/03/2015

I was tired of the powdery cast of highlighting powders like NARS Albatross. Since I don't wear foundation, I don't tend to try liquid/cream highlighters. I'm MAC C7 and feel like many beloved highlighters pull too pink or yellow-green on my skin. The Josie Maran Illuminizer imparts a unique type of glow. It is void of huge glitter chunks so the sheen it leaves is very natural. The …Read more

Fragrances - Kate Spade New York - Walk On Air Eau de Parfum

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2015

If you are a fan of green florals, this is for you. Walk on Air is a light springy fragrance, definitely ideal for day wear. I get a lot of orange blossom and lime blossom on my skin, both of which I hate. That being said, this ideal for someone who loves smelling the green parts of a flower in a fragrance. It's a good scent to spritz for a casual day at the park. I can appreciate a true …Read more

Fragrances - Laura Mercier - Creme de Pistache Eau Gourmande

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/12/2015

I am echoing a lot of other reviews, but this could definitely be a little sister of Angel. CDP opens with plenty of sweet nutty goodness; a pristine scoop of pistachio ice cream next to a macaron. Then it warms into more of an almond bubble tea. Once it has settled on my skin, it definitely smells like Angel without the super assertive patch note. I love how Angel smells on me after about 6 …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - MISSHA - Cho Bo Yang Eye Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2015

HG, no contest. I had a girlfriend snag this cream from me while she was in Korea. The packaging is totally decadent and looks great on a vanity. The cream itself is incredibly rich; one only needs the tiniest bit for both eyes. I like that Missha includes a little spatula to scoop the product out, a hygienic practice that more companies should recognize and promote. This eye cream has little …Read more
