Micro glitter is right. This is a shimmer unlike any other. Adds amazing dimension over inky blacks and blues and shines like a flash of silvery moon. LOVE.

Lip Gloss - Aquolina - Chocolovers Rossetto Cremoso Creamy Lip Colour

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/11/2010

Smells great, but tastes like hand lotion. If it didn't have such a great texture, I would have tossed it. It feel like the gloss adheres to my lips and seals itself on - I can't lick it off and it doesn't seem to transfer onto tea cups or my children. After the sheer chocolately colour has worn/absorbed in, my lips feel plush and hydrated. This formula is much less slippery …Read more

Eye Shadow - Stila - Daffodil

This colour showed up well for me, though I always used it with a base of some kind (UDPP Sin, NYX Milk, MAC Soft Ochre). I would describe the colour as a cooling grey-green pearl. As pretty as it is in the pan, I think I must have skin that's too pink or yellow (?) for it, though the problem might be the exact brown of my eyes. Greens that do work on my MAC NC30 / NARS Budapest / BE …Read more

Fragrances - Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Amande

3.0

Jan/11/2010

I received a sample of Vanille Amande in a swap and finally spritzed myself today and now I smell just like sugar almonds! This is neither good nor bad, but curious. I find this novelty in about every CSP fragrance, although that this one dies down to a lasting candy sweetness, is good. It's been about 12 hours and I still smell like a bag of smooth, pink, candy-coated almonds …

Polishes - ZOYA - Nail Lacquer in Uli

1.0

Jan/11/2010

Uli is a 70's era nude, a la Barbie's legs. My nails look like they're wearing sparkly nude pantyhose! I gave it to my mum, not because it looks any better on her, but because her and "Apricot with a Subtle Gold Shimmer" go way back.

Fragrances - Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Banane

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2009

This is my C A N D Y fix. As a banana-hater, loving this fragrance confirms that it is actually about vanilla. Admittedly, the creamy custard opening may have a single banana slice on top, but there is absolutely none of that Friday's-half-eaten-banana-found-Monday stench I loathe. One lippie off for floating away fom me so quickly, and another for not having adjusted the price …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Lipstick - Dark Side

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/12/2009

This colour has been very well described by the previous reviewers. I have yellow undertones and this is a winning red for me. As much as I would like to do the true reds, I lack the conviction and turn again and again to these burgundy and berry rouges. This one is the perfect combination - not too brown, not too purple, not to bright, not too dark. The Amplified Cream formula appears to be …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Linacare Transforming Face Cream

5.0

Dec/12/2009

I wish I could give this even more than five, because I believe that this moisturizer is curing my acne. I have oily combination skin and hormonal breakouts around the chin and jaw line - red, inflamed and painful. I started using this moisturizer in the light formula about 2 months ago. I use a small spatula to remove a tiny amount from the jar and apply very sparingly, dotting it onto my …Read more

Polishes - ZOYA - Casey

5.0

Nov/07/2009

This colour is very flattering on me (Warm/Neutral, Nars Budapest, NC30). I wore two coats and ended with a luscious, glassy black, tinged with blackberry. On smoothed nails, with Armour and Anchor, this polish lasted longer than I expected. I had chipped tips after the third day, which is pretty good since I use my hands and nails as tools and can't be bothered with gloves. I touched up …Read more

Polishes - OPI - You Don't Know Jacques! Suede

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2009

I can't believe OPI charges full price for a product that chips upon contact with any available surface! I will not be buying the suede formula again, even though I'm giving dear Jacques one lippie for ambiguous colour and still one more for high tech fascination. For reference, this colour - fine silver sparkle under a gold-tarnished-mauve overlay - looks fabulous against my …Read more
