This has been my signature scent since 2002 and I always get compliments on this scent. It's a bit strong when you first put it on but dries to a nice, light scent that is not at all overpowering. It's a very lady-like scent. I actually just ran out of mine and will be buying another bottle.

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED2 Eyeshadow Palette

I just got this today and this review is just based off of my initial impressions. The shadows are buttery as I have come to expect from Urban Decay. They were all very pigmented and very easy to swatch, with the exception of Tease, which didn't swatch as easily as the rest, but it was still good. Pistol and Verve were amazing! I wish that Half-Baked wasn't in the palette, I mean …Read more

I just got this in yesterday and i just had to play with it as soon as I got home from work. This is my second UD palette (Naked being the first) and I must say that I was not at all disappointed. Overall the eyeshadows are of great quality and are nice and buttery. The one color that didn't seem to have good payoff was Tainted. It took me a few swipes to get the color to really show. …Read more

I got a sample size of this from Birchbox and I was pretty skeptical, but once I tried it I was sold! It is easily absorbed into the skin and it leaves your hands so nice and velvety. I like that the scent is very soft and not overpowering. I think that the price for a full size ($20!!!) is a bit steep though and that's what has held me back from purchasing the full sized version …Read more

So I had been eyeing this blush for some time now and every time I went in to my local Sephora to buy it, they were always out of it. However, my co-worker gave me this from her collection as she no longer uses it since she bought a similar discontinued shade by Smashbox. I must say that I LOVE this blush. It's nice and creamy and goes on smoothly. It gives your face a nice …Read more

My mom used this as a teen in the Philippines and she introduced it to me when I was a teenager as well. I bet when I have kids I'll be introducing this to my future daughter as well. I actually picked some up yesterday as I ran out of my HG toner (Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion) and needed a quick fix. I usually use this toner during the summer months as that is when my skin is …Read more

I went to CVS yesterday intending to just grab cash from the atm and let my boyfriend grab an energy drink. Well, I ended up walking over to the cosmetics section and started looking for a bright pink lipstick since I've been wanting Candy Yum Yum, but was one of the unlucky ones who wasn't able to buy it before it sold out. Anyway, I LOVE this lipstick. It's not as light and …Read more

I'm Filipino and this soap is pretty much a staple for Filipino women. I started using this when I was in college to even out my skin tone. My friend's mom had some and she encouraged us to try it saying it'll lighten up our skin and help with our pimples. I decided to try it then and have been using it ever since. The soap is creamy and lathers really well. It does lighten …Read more

Apr/27/2011

I love using this rice powder as my setting powder. It gives my face a nice matte finish and makes my makeup look flawless. It keeps my skin from getting oily and shiny. The puff that comes with isn't all that great, but it's not like the majority of us use those anyway, right? The packaging could use a little tweaking as it does get a little messy and since it's mostly a …Read more

I bought this brush because I needed a stippling brush and didn't want to fork up the cash for the MAC 187 and this brush got pretty good reviews. I think that it works fairly well, but it does shed. Sometimes I find stray hairs on my face which gets fairly annoying. However, it doesn't shed so much that it would deter me from buying this product again. I do think that the brush …Read more
