Candles - diptyque - Pomander candle

Nov/25/2014

I was in the mood for a holiday scent. When I read the reviews regarding this candle evoking memories of Christmas for many, I thought this would be the one.

I was wrong. First off, I found this candle to smell like a mix of spicy and sour. Even after touching the wax my hands smelled sour, not in a good way. When I opened the lovely box, the candle itself fell out of the jar. …

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Kure Bazaar Nail Polish Urban 14

Kure polishes are awesome. The face that they are Eco-friendly makes them even better. I have a few colors in this brand, but "Urban 14" is my favorite. I was looking for a creamy, more subdued orange and this hit the nail on the head. I find that Kure polishes last much longer than other polishes, especially when used with their base and top coat. The application is also smooth. …Read more

Mascara - CHANEL - Inimitable Intense Mascara

I use to always buy waterproof mascara because it was the only thing that would hold the curl in my eyelashes. I started noticing my lashes becoming more sparse, which I attributed to having to work at getting waterproof mascara out. I tried a few non waterproof mascara, and found this one to be the best one. I like the intensity it gives my short straight lashes. It's easy to wash off …Read more

Eyeliner - NARS Cosmetics - Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner - Via Veneto

The color is intense, I will give it that. However, this, like other creamy pencils I've used, smudges like crazy. Also, I do not like the packaging. The pencil is retractable and the sharpener is useless. Everytime I would try sharpening the tip, it would just break off. Not worth the money.

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Vive Sana Solar To Polar Ultra SPF 40

Wanted to like this product, but it didn't work for me. It has a very smooth balmy texture. It didn't leave white streaks, but every time I'd use it, I would break out. I have extra sensitive skin that is prone to flare-ups. This didn't cause my eczema to flare up, but I would get pimples a day after using this.

Styling Products - Oribe - Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray

I have stick straight Asian hair. I spray this product in damp hair, after I shower. When my hair is dry, it has more body and some wave to it. I like this spray because it adds texture and volume to my hair with out making it feel crunchy or coated with product. I really don't like using products in aerosol cans and this isn't travel friendly, but it's a damn good product. …Read more

Eyeliner - Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

The best liquid eyeliner I have come across. It has all the aspects of a liquid eyeliner that make it a good one. The felt tip applicator makes it easy to apply. The pigment is very bold. The the best part is that is does last ALL DAY.

Lotions/ Creams - Malin+Goetz - Vitamin b5 Body Moisturizer

This moisturizer is the best. I have eczema and have tried almost everything to soothe my sensitive skin. It smells so good. It reminds me of earl grey tea, probably because of the bergamot. This moisturizer is a thick consistency that you really don't need much of. It's not greasy at all, it soaks into my skin and leaves it soft. Prior to this my skin was always itchy everywhere. …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - beautyblender - Blendercleanser

Nov/14/2012

I love my beauty blender, but was bothered by the fact that it was a cesspool for bacteria. I tried cleansing it with my Cetaphil cleanser, which didn't bother me, but my beauty blender still had makeup stains all over it. I did some research about what people used to cleanse their blenders and the reviews for the Beauty Blender Cleanser won me over. The cleanser is very effective. The …Read more

Liquid - Vapour Organic Beauty - Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation

Nov/08/2012

If I could use only one word to describe this product, it would be "Wow". This is the only foundation that I have ever tried in my life that actually makes my skin look good even without wearing it. What I mean is that with other foundations, liquid or mineral, my skin looked like a wreck when I wasn't wearing it. Vapour Organic's Soft Focus foundation is incredibly …Read more
