What, I haven't reviewed this one yet? Shame. This is my staple cushion, the original version, that is. I've tried almost every other variation of the cushion (long-stay, long stay matte, moisture)..the original is still the best. The moisturizing type doesn't suit my oily pore-y skin at all plus - FYI - it is somehow darker/yellower than the other types, although I always buy C23 …Read more

I believe Rimmel owes us an apology. I spend a lot of money on makeup...I'm a collector. Hi end, low end, indie, international...I've made some hit and miss purchases over the years, and that's ok, sometimes good brands come up with a subpar product. But this is different. This is false advertising. First of all, the first few strokes I applied were gray. I was able to get it to …Read more

OMG I love this and I never loved anything from YR. It's a little sharp in the beginning, almost medicinal but dries down to an absolutely beautiful finish soft of orange blossoms, musk, and something else warm I can't quite decipher. Very different from the typical sweet fruity scents we seem to have everywhere nowadays. Nothing generic here, nothing bold either but that's the way …Read more

I like this...but not too much. I'm generally afraid of putting strong colours on my face because I'm not gifted at determining what looks good and what does not. With Fig, I'm safe. Almost to the point of what's the point because it shows up as such a gentle, nearly non-existent brown plummy wash (NC25). The container is convenient, albeit tiny, making this a pricey little …Read more

BB Cream - Holika Holika - Face to Change Liquid Roller BB Cream

I own an embarrassing pile of BB creams. Holika's roller is rather good, I must say. It has a unique application roller, somewhat similar to Loreal's True match cream roller. Well, the roller itself is just a piece of foam but the application becomes an unusual 'paint the fence' experience. You push the button on the BB tube, a blob of cream gets dispensed on to the roller …Read more

Wearable but meh. A slightly more grown up version of BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar. I have a sample bottle, will not repurchase. Staying power is ok...it's just too uninteresting. I remember bashing Lush Vanillary but come to think of it, it's much better although it does turn into sour pee scent on me at times.

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - Love Love Love Body Lotion

I like the plummy notes in this. Haven't noticed the medicinal smell - probably because the lasting power is poor. It dries down to a generic BBW kind of smell. Not horrible, the plum is actually nice for a change. I have a small bottle of this and will not repurchase.

Oh wow this stuff is bad...I tried it in both the lotion and splash form. The splash smells very cheap...Sweet, cloying, plain, and strong. The lotion is even worse - all the above said attributes plus a hint of burned plastic. No, I can't...

This is a review for shade 200 "brownish black".

Starting point - dark brown, straight hair. Virgin, healthy, medium-thick. I thought I'd give myself a color boost - age and sun made my natural red highlights more prominent which I didn't like.

Finish - jet black hair. Flat, jet black hair.

After crying myself to sleep with Allan Poe's …
