Skincare - Body - The Body Shop - Exfoliating Gloves

Sep/27/2012

I totally forgot about making a review about my all time staple for several years - these gloves.
So here goes:

I use them, whenever I'm showering and always get compliments on my skin (I'm 41).
Soft, smooth, clear, radiant skin - is what I get.

Since I use them almost daily, I tend to forget what worth they have in my beauty regime. However, not bringing …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - All

Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2011

My UD primer potion was sold out and I needed a primer asap, and an SA advised me to go for the Paint Pot in soft ochre as a primer instead.
I'm really sad I did because I can't use it after finally figuring out that this is the one product I've ever tried that gives me an itchy and red reaction on my eye lids and tear ducts that lasts for days, making me …

Fragrances - Yves Rocher - VANILLE NOIRE

Similarities to Dio Hypnotic Poison - yes.
Sillage - none
Lasting power - no
Scent - something softly vanillaish, very faint. Even I can't smell it on me.


I hoped on something similar to Vanilla bourbon edt, with an even darker twist. Instead I received a faint fragrance - the faintest in my colllection.
I happily sprayed 3-4-spritzes the second I got it …

Fragrances - CLINIQUE - Aromatics Elixir Perfume Spray

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/16/2010

For a woody oriental gal like me, Aromatics Elixir was a disapointment.
The SA promised woody, earthy non-sweet and urged me to try this on, but forgot to mention chypre.
In the true old chypre way.
Just what Aromatics Elixir is.


Chypres doesn't work on me at all.
And unfortunately, this is one of my skrubbers.
If I was only able to pull out some …

A lot of people refer to the dirt in this one.
Frankly, i don't get the dirt.
I don't get any burnt wood, choal, tobacco, citrus or patchouli.


What I personally get is pepper and spices, myrrh, some pine and also a tad of the mango sweetness, benzoin resins, and vetiver.
All blended perfectly and balanced.
I love it.


However, after …

Fragrances - diptyque - Eau Lente Eau de Toilette

Nov/10/2010

Eau Lente from 1986 is such a beautiful scent.
It has a presence not many mainstream fragrances exhibits today, designed to suit most people whatever the difference. Eau Lente however, is not for everyone.


My first encounter with Eau Lente, a fragrance to be worn by both sexes, took place after relizing that I was quite fed up with sweet flowery fragrances and more a spicy …

Eye Primer - CLINIQUE - Touch Base For Eyes in Silver Lighting [discontinued]

Used as an eyeshadow on my oily eyelids?
No.
Used as an eyelid base under cool toned greys, lilacs, pinks and blues?
Yes.


Does it work well as an eyeshadow base?
When I'm out for just a couple of hours, yes.
But I have to get home before it creases.


All in all: Almost sparkly silver base - a bit too whiteish to look good on its on …

Eye Primer - KANEBO - Lunasol Eyelid Base

Nov/03/2010

Superb cream-to-powder texture with an illuminating effect that is great for balancing out dark eyelids and corners. Also great to use without an eyeshadow on top for a natural and bright look.
However, it doesn't wear well on oily eyelids like mine.


It has creased two hours after I have applied it, and the eyelids feel wet.
I never get that wet feeling with other …

Fragrances - Versace - Versus Versace

Strange little scent - truly fruity, not artificial fruity but ripe and fruity.


Picture this: A table in front of a window and the sun is shining in.
As you pass the table you catch the whiff of ripe fruits from a bowl (plums, cherries, kumquat, and starfruit) in the sun, a plate with a half eaten juicy pear, a tiny bottle of musk, a somewhat withered stem of a rose and …

Apr/14/2010

I was looking for a rose perfume with delicious creamy notes, and ended up with this one on a whim, a little too soon. I believe I should have given it a series of sniffing before I shelled out the money on it - but not remembering the exact scent mixed with my joy with "The One" ended up in a purchase while I was in the mood for splurging on something.


It's new in …
