Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Black Baccara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/12/2017

Black Baccara is built on Oud and darkened by ghostings of ylang ylang, black pepper, and earth lifted ever so slightly on the drydown by a hint of vanilla.

This is Black Baccara Perfumerie's signature fragrance. Wet, the black pepper is very prominent, engaged with head rose red buried deep in wooded earth while a soft wind of ylang ylang teases in the …

Nov/11/2017

Imagine my surprise when I found this imp along with a few orders from a recent package from BPAL!

A crisp, pale, almost translucent rose dusted by moonflower and midnight dew.

Wet - Rose! Rose! Rose! sprinkled with soft dew and wafting notes of moonflower.

On the dry down, the wet rose gets dusted lightly with baby powder, perhaps the moonflower, creating a very …

Fragrances - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Marguerite

Rose, rose geranium, myrrh, ylang ylang, French gardenia, tuberose, red sandalwood, and palmarosa.

Initially, this a VERY heady, heavy fresh cut rose scent. I would go easy when applying it wet because I made the mistake of putting on too much and the wetness can be a bit of an allergy/asthma trigger for someone like myself. The myrrh is very prominent.

On the dry down, rose …

The moment before the ruin, frozen. The scent of captured glory, of glowing pearls and rubies, of golden sunlit joy and regal grandeur: red rose, Tunisian amber, blood orange, toasted vanilla, heliotrope, gardenia and red musk. (

The initial wet scent is almost strong with wet gardenia, heady and strong with a coat of strong amber and rose. Almost like fresh cut green …

Bronzers - Too Faced - Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer

May/06/2012

I disagree with the reviews that this doesn't suit dark skin. I am anywhere from an NC40-44 and it looks fantastic as a bronzer. I was looking for a bronzer that doesn't lean orange or red because I have golden undertones and wanted something to act strictly as a contour or to warm up my complexion on tanner days. This is the perfect color for my skin tone. This is a matte bronzer with …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Liner - Dipdown

I've had this for a couple of years and it hasn't dried out. Personally I love black liner, so I found little use for this. Till one day I was watching UmaPreve on youtube and I saw her using this on her brows. I previously used powder but I noticed in pictures it made my brow hairs look sparse towards the inner corners when the flash went off. So I started using this. It's a made …Read more

I love this foundation. Dare I say, almost HG status? This foundation is absolutely one of the fullest coverages you can find. It covers my tattoos very well. It's thick and you only need the tiniest bit of product to cover your entire face. It contains no SPF and photographs wonderfully. See my profile for photos of me wearing this. I purchased this at Sephora, which has a limited …Read more

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish by Kate Moss - 12

Mar/05/2012

I picked this up on clearance at my local Walgreens for $2. It's a bright coral orange. Maybe it's just my tube, but my lipstick is more of a creamy amplified finish rather than a matte or satin. I appreciate there is no shimmer or glitter. It's a beautiful color for WoC. It does need a liner for a more precise look. I can see it sliding around if not set with liner. Beautiful …Read more

Eyeliner - Sephora Collection - Keep Kohl! Eyeliner in Black

Dec/18/2011

I wanted to give this a try because I am looking for something to rim my eyes and give it a dark, smoky and sultry look. It glided on easily. It was a rich dark jet black but not more than an hour later, it faded away and smudged under my eyes. The migration was terrible. There was faint hints of kohl but the dark inky line I drew was gone.The container reminds me a lipstick, it's a twist up …Read more

I normally prefer pressed powder and concealer for blemishes for day to day use. However, I was looking for something to give my face a more flawless finish the multitude of weddings I will be attending this year. I've heard wonderful things about this foundation. After reading a ton of reviews and watching you tube videos, I decided to give this a try. <br><br>
