Brows - YBF Cosmetics - Transforming Eyebrow Pencil

5.0

Feb/27/2009

I have dark brows, but the "tails" have become sparse from the years of plucking. I have tried so many different brow pencils, powders, gels, etc. I really like this product. Love the spoolie on one end because it is stiff enough to groom your brows and to soften to pencil. I also like the color of the pencil because you can easily darken it up as needed simply by applying more …Read more

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original

Feb/27/2009

Run, do not walk, to your nearest retailer to purchase this product! I have oily eyelids and sparse eyebrows. I apply some of this to my eyelid and around my brow area. By the end of the night, my eye make-up and my brows are still perfect. It's amazing! I have used tons of primers; this stuff is the bomb. I like it so much, that I will be giving it to all my female relatives and …Read more

Mascara - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara

Dec/17/2008

I know make-up is like everything else. Some people love a product, other people...not so much. It's all about what works for you. I have to say that I love, love, love this mascara. I really love the dark, black pigment. I have black eyelashes anyway, so I need the extra darkness. Second, I love how it makes my lashes look huge. One coat, and my lashes are visibly lengthened and …Read more

Eyeliner - Smashbox - Smashing Cream Eye Liner

I have used, and loved, MAC's cream eyeliner. I wanted a navy shade, so while at Sephora I picked this one up in Picasso. The color is great! However, this liner smeared very quickly. The MAC eyeliner dries and stays put. I have oily eyelids, so I need that. I usually put on my eyeliner and then "soften" it with shadow, so I am used to doing that. This is just too …Read more

Fragrances - Lancôme - Tresor Eau de Printemps Sheer EDT

I wear regular Tresor and enjoy it, but this one is the perfect summer fragrance. I agree with everything the previous reviewer said, but I would add that on me there is a wonderful dry down that reveals a light musk that I find very appealing. I catch myself sniffing my wrist all day. Does that make me weird? I took one lippie off because it is very expensive for a summer fragrance. Then …Read more

Lip Gloss - Smashbox - O-GLOSS

I must be in the minority. This product is a very nice gloss. Not sticky, smooth, moisturizing...for that I awarded 1 lippie. But, $20 for absolutely no distinguishable color change? I don't think so. Honestly, I must have mutant genes or something. Perfumes that smell good on everyone else, reek on me. Everyone else gets a nice color change. Me...nothing. Oh well.

Gels/ Soaps - benefit Cosmetics - Gettin' Steamy [DISCONTINUED]

I thought I would really like this because of all the positive reviews. However, the scent just didn't work for me. It is too fruity, and it reacts with my chemistry in a less-than-pleasant way. I really don't like any scent that smells like food. Back it goes to Sephora.

Fragrances - Gucci - Gucci

I generally love spicy, complex fragrances. I agree with other reviewers...the bottle is beautiful. It seems that in the fragrance business these days, it is as important to have a lovely container as it is to have a lovely scent. This fragrance went on with much promise, but unfortunately it quickly turned to something that reminded me of the floor cleaner Spic-n-Span. Pine? Bleach? …Read more

Two words for this scent:
Ivory Soap

That's okay though. It's light and fresh. I love the shower gel, because it doesn't dry my skin at all. I agree with the other reviewers who say that the scent lasts about 15 minutes. I need something with a little more staying power.

I really enjoy complex scents,especially for the winter months. I love the spicy richness of this scent. I can smell the chocolate, but it is subtle and blends away quickly. I have been told by others that this scent is "intoxicating". It intoxicates me too!
