Polishes - Color Club - Vintage Couture

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2014

i bought this polish because its the perfect baby pink, and because ive had good experiences with color club in the past.

sadly, this polish is a huge disappointment. the formula is chalky and streaky. four coats in and its still streaky and uneven. thankfully, i dont find the formula to be thick at all... so with 4 coats and a topcoat it looks passable from afar. up close it looks …

Polishes - Dolce&Gabbana - Dahlia

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/09/2013

dolce & gabbana should receive top marks for their beauty packaging. sturdy, substantial, heavy, gold-toned, and feels like top quality from a different era.

the 11ml bottle is tall and square with a polished gold cap.

this particular color, dahlia, is a spot-on dupe of chanel vamp. deep, creamy dark black-red.

overall im pleased with this polish, but i will …

Lip Treatments - By Terry - Baume de Rose - Flaconnette - SPF 15

Nov/05/2013

as of january 2014, im changing my review.

as soon as winter rolled around, which is the time when a good lip moisturizer is the most important, this balm became a total disappointment. in fact, even right after i wrote my initial review i started feeling like i was overhyping it.

disappointing things:
-it seems like the 7ml tube isnt even filled all the way. at least …

Styling Products - Oribe - Supershine Moisturizing Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/04/2013

i always feel like saying that a product is the "best ever" sounds rather like a hyperbolic statement, but oribe supershine moisturizing cream truly is the best leave-in conditioner ive ever used SO FAR.

i have thick curly hair, and lots of it. i dont really like wearing it curly (unless my hair is very short), so i blow-dry and flat-iron it all the time. when i was younger …

Lip Treatments - Dior - Collagen Active Lip Gloss

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/02/2013

this is by far, without a doubt, the absolute BEST lip gloss ive ever used. ive been a lip gloss lover since i first found out it existed, and i have tons of unfinished gloss tubes dating back to high school. (im 29 now.)

ive never finished a tube of lip gloss so rapidly. i went through the whole tube in 6 months. this gloss turned my often chapped/sometimes flaky lips into perfect …

Treatments (Eye) - CHANEL - Hydra Beauty Micro Gel Yeux Intense Smoothing Hydration Eye Gel

Oct/30/2013

this eye gel from chanel is part of the hydra beauty line, and it promises to "combat signs of fatigue, dark circles and puffiness. The eye contour is revitalized and smoothed for a refreshed, radiant and more youthful appearance".

okay, well it has done none of that for me so far. i dont suffer from puffiness, but i always have dark circles under my eyes and using this gel …

Oct/30/2013

im not a fan of this product at all. it smells nice, as all oribe products do, and the packaging is great. but i hate what it does to my hair.

i used this with my flat iron. and as reviewer KileyMc said, it made my hair sticky and crunchy when i first sprayed it. the iron takes away the stickyness, and i have to admit my hair was beautifully straight right after going over it with the …

i wrote a separate review of the entire chanel resynchronizing skincare line, which you can read if you click on my name and see my other reviews. i am copy pasting my initial review below, but first id like to add a few things. i updated my other review twice because when the temperature started to cool down, i could feel that this serum would not be enough to keep my face moisturized throughout …Read more

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Cortas - Rose Water

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2013

pure food-grade rose water can be found at most middle eastern markets. for years i bought it to put in juices and foods, but one day when i ran out of my sisley floral toner i decided to try using rosewater underneath my moisturizer and i was super pleased / super surprised by the results.

now, im not going to go as far as to say that rosewater is "better" than a …

Toners - Arcona - Cranberry Toner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2013

i love what this toner does to my skin, but i hate the scent enough to drop a star from the rating. honestly, i dont even hate the actual scent-- i just think its too strong. if it were a more subtle cranberry scent, it would be perfect! but it goes on strong and stays strong. it takes more than an hour for the scent to fade!

other than that, its a great toner. it moisturizes my skin …
