Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Medieval

2.0

Oct/10/2016

I'm very surprised at the positive reviews here. I bought this lipstick based on my desire to try a wearable red shade. I went in knowing that it would not have good longevity but was okay with that.

But what I'm not okay about is that this is NOT a red lipstick. It is a berry shade -- a nice berry shade (hence my second lippie), but I have several of those already that I …

Blush - Laura Geller New York - Baked Blush-N-Brighten - Honeysuckle

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2016

I have used many, many Laura Geller Blush-n-brighten blushes in my day. But this recent addition, Honeysuckle, is the best shade ever.

It's described as a a coppery bronze swirled with soft pink. I took a chance and bought it blind during a sale. I'm so glad that I did.

It's one of the most natural of all her blushes. Don't think that copper or bronze …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Sarah Horowitz -- Perfect Gardenia

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/17/2016

In my search for a realistic but wearable Gardenia scent (not a scent that just happens to include gardenia), I tested several that, although ultra-realistic, were difficult for me to wear.

So I decided that what I really wanted was a realistic gardenia scent that focused on its freshness and beauty without any of the sometimes distracting qualities.

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Sarah Horowitz -- Rose Gold

Jan/17/2016

Rose and Gardenia -- If you love these two notes, I think you might very much enjoy a new fragrance by Sarah Horowitz that I sampled and then immediately purchased.

For those not familiar with Sarah Horowitz perfumes, you can google and read about her on her website. She is a very knowledgeable and experienced perfumer with quite a following. I have actually spoken to her a couple …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Elie Saab-L'Eau Couture

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2015

This is my only Elie Saab fragrance, so I can't compare it to his others. I bought a sample because I love the scent of almonds, and I didn't notice any reviews saying that this one was a bitter almond at all. I fell in love and promptly ordered the 3 oz bottle.

This is a beauty. Almonds, the freshness of orange, and the light hint of vanilla. The end result is so much more …

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Curl Junkie-Curls in a Bottle

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/19/2015

If you have curly hair (for reference, I am 3A/3B with fine hair) and want a styling product that defines, gives light but non-crunchy hold, and reduces frizz, there is nothing better than Curl Junkie's Curls in a Bottle.

This is a thin gel that is easy to apply. I usually use a very small amount of a Curl Junkie leave-in conditioner first. Then I section my hair and apply a …

Styling Products - Jessicurl - Spiralicious Styling Gel

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/19/2015

I have 3A/3B somewhat fine hair. I have the best results when I use the "rake and shake" method of styling my hair instead of applying a styling product to my whole head of hair at once.

I use and love Curl Junkie products but was intrigued with this gel. But it's a no go for me. It's extremely sticky, which is annoying. Unless I was just unable to find that sweet …

Powder - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/08/2015

This is just what I was looking for. I'm used to liquid foundations but wanted to try a powder one for a change. I always thought of powder foundations as being dry and chalky.

This formula goes on like a dream. I use a dense brush and pat it on and then buff. I can then go over any areas that need more coverage. I have redness and sunspots, and I am able to build it up to my …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Dame Perfumery of Scottsdale, Desert Rose

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2015

I've admired the EDTs that I had sampled from Dame Perfumery, but I didn't fall head over heels with any of them.

I do like his Mexican Vanilla EDP, but unfortunately something in it or about it irritates me physically, as some perfumes do. It seems to be quite beloved by many.

But Desert Rose? Oh, my, oh, my, what a creamy, opulent, and sophisticated bit of juice …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/18/2015

I'm very surprised by some of the negative comments here. I had been using Argan oil and Marula oil before purchasing this product. I much prefer getting a blend of oils plus other great ingredients.

I don't find it particularly expensive. I use two drops in the morning and two in the evening, and my bottle is lasting a long time.

I also don't find it …
