Lotions/ Creams - Kiehl's - Ultimate Strength Hand Salve

It is simply great at doing its job. The packaging may not be the prettiest thing I've ever seen, but I almost don't give a damn. The smell is not too girly and not too manly. I detect hints of citrus and nuts. The only reason I wouldn't buy this again is because it's too expensive and I don't have to (I mooch it off my mom and sis).

Fragrances - Hermès - Eau des Merveilles

Feb/11/2007

Very nice scent... less citrusy than I would have liked or imagined, but the intensity is amazing. Lasts all day. The packaging is gorgeous (the finest epitome of art and luxury) and given the fact it came from Hermes, I guess the price is right... even if it was over $100 CDN for 100 ml (which I assume is like, 50 cents a spray)... which I think is diabolical for anything that doesn't …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Exact Waterproof

Sep/09/2006

This is a great mascara. The packaging is gorgeous, the wand does exactly what it's supposed to do (separate, define & lengthen), it doesn't smear, flake or clump...and it actually holds curl! What's not to love? It only cost me a bit over $9.00 CDN, and gave me the classy, natural look I adore. The only problem I have with it is: no matter how many times I layer this …Read more

Mascara - Blinc - Kiss Me Tube Mascara ULTRA VOLUME

1.0

Aug/15/2006

This is by far, the single worst mascara I've ever tried. It is too heavy for my lashes, because it undoes curl like nothing else. I paid almost $40 CDN for it, but I think I will trash it. No volumizing, no lengthening, no special packaging, useless wand, takes forever to build, takes even longer to dry, everything about it is C-R-A-P. Yes, it comes off in little tubes in the shower …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Stylist Waterproof ] [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Jun/16/2006

This is the ultimate multi-tasking mascara. It is actually waterproof, lifts, separates, thickens, AND lengthens...as long as you have a light hand, stay at 2 coats, and use a good lash comb (like Tweezerman ILASHCOMB). I was tempted to buy it because the drugstore around my neighbourhood has this cute cashier (who I had a crush on for almost a year)...& he was working that day. Also, this …Read more

Fragrances - Gucci - Eau de Parfum II

Mar/05/2006

The bottle is heavy as hell but gorgeous, and the price is horrid, but it lasts ages. I use it every other day. Everything I own smells like this perfume. I got it as a hand-me-down from my sister (whose most frequently used/ favorite is Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb), but I like this better. I think I detect a hint of grapefruit or some other citrus notes. The scent suits me quite well …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Seashore Frosts Quad

Mar/05/2006

I was having an awful day, and bought myself this palette to boost my spirits. Usually, I go for something skanky-looking and flashy (which is what I expected from this palette)...and I also end up regretting it later because of how "whore-ific" my impulse buy is. However, I am very pleased with this as I have extra dark brown eyes (and what does ANYTHING do for my boring brown …Read more

Loose Powders - The Body Shop - Brillance Powder

Jun/17/2005

I bought the bronzing version. First of all, I couldn't tell whether it was working or not because sometimes when you press the button that releases the powder, it creates this "whoosh" sound (which means it's working) or it doesn't make that sound at all (which USUALLY means it's NOT). I pressed that button ten times before the brush was saturated with enough …Read more

Jun/01/2005

My hands must be sponges, 'cuz this stuff just evaporated on me after five minutes. I kept reapplying to no end, and for something I paid over $20 CDN for, it was simply not worth it. Yes, I expect miracles if products are supposedly higher quality or more expensive, but why else would I buy $20 hand cream when a $5-$10 one does a helluva better job? Sorry to say, thrifty drugstore …Read more

Wow...a little goes a long way. I thought 2-3 drops would be too little 'cuz I have a fairly large head, but it saturated my head and neck area perfectly! Lucky for me, I get samples of this from my mom's hefty Cellex-C purchases. She swears by that stuff, and I think I will too because it seems to work splendidly on her.
