    Got2b Dazzling Shine Spray

    This spray does not smell good...

    I've been looking for a drugstore brand quick finishing spray to add some shine to my hair ever since I can no longer find Sunsilk ThermaShine Spray. Oh, boy, this one smells bad. It has a very strong chemical smell. My first try, it made my roots look dirty and oily. The second time I was careful, used even less, and sprayed away from the roots, but then my hair looked a bit better. But not enough shine to endure the smell. I hate to throw away an unfinished product, I just could not stand it. Although it is expensive and not a misty spray, I go back using Redken Glass 01 smoothing serum.

  • Giorgio Armani Emporio Armani She Eau de Parfum

    First I was not too thrilled to get this one as my b-day gift. I collect decorative glass perfume bottles. By the look of the design, I thought their scent would be more suitable for younger people. What I noticed about this perfume is that it takes a good half an hour to reveal their true scent. It has the appealing amount of vanilla, cedar, and musk combination. The warm and spicy combo may not be too original, but Emporio Armani's blend is not cloying. In my humble opinion, I feel that this is one of those perfumes that once the scent settles down, it smells even better. Today I am happy that someone gave this one to me.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mistake-Proof Marker Eyeliner

    I like the name, but I would have liked it more if it were true. The tip was too big and rough to work with, and the formula was a bit runny even for a liquid eyeliner. I practiced a few times. I applied, wiped it off, and then applied again, it got better but I could not get the look that I really wanted. I gave up. I think my eyes are too small for this product. This may work for those who want a thick line and the smokey look. BTW, I picked up the black, but it looked more ash grey on my skin.

  • Nars Nail Polish

    Nars Nail Polish

    Expected more

    NARS has a few products that have really impressed me, but this nail polish is just so-so for me. Their color selection is somewhat limited, but they do have the colors that are really pretty, fun or conservative. The 2 bottles that I own, the both colors chipped off after two days without any top coat or base coat. I feel that NARS nail polish requires a base AND top coat to prolong the life of the polish. I am a little surprised with the average quality from a nail color that is more expensive than OPI or Essie.

  • Rimmel London Sexy Curves Waterproof Mascara

    This may be one of the worst waterproof mascaras I have ever worn. The color was nice and deep, but the formula was very wet and heavy on my lashes, thus, it took forever to dry and weighed down the lashes. Also it was clumpy, and more importantly wasn't waterproof. It smudged both upper and lower eye lids. It did not add any significant length or volume either, but I bought this one as a waterproof mascara, but unfortunately, it did not deliver. Well, at least it was really cheap.

  • Goody ColourCollection Large Claw Clip-Brunette

    Goody ColourCollection Large Claw Clip-Brunette

    Works for thick and long hair

    My package came with 3 clips - black, brunette, and clear. I did not want the clear one, but I could not find a package with just one color. This claw clip works for my thick and long hair. It can hold all of my hair, and keeps it in place for a long time. Unfortunately, after many months, one of them broke, but I really use it very often. I also buy Scunci No-Slip Grip Clip For Thick Hair, which is equally good.

  • Origins Shimmer Stick For Softly-lit Lips

    I usually hate a pencil style lip stick because I have to sharpen and it is not very moisturizing. I had this Shimmer Stick in Pearly Jam. The color was really pretty and noticeable without being too flashy. It was not drying for a pencil style lip product. The biggest benefit of this lip stick was I could carry it around under the hot summer. When lip glosses and lip sticks tend to melt or get soften, this one did not become too soft. It also worked great as a lip liner. I am definitely going to buy it again!

  • Benefit Bathina Sweet Satin Shave

    Ever since my husband switched to The Body Shop's shave cream for men, which comes in a tub, I've been happy that there is no no rust ring. But I still use a can of Aveeno, EOS or Satin Care shave gel for myself. When I saw this tub of the shave cream in my friend's bathroom, I asked her about her experience with this cream. She said I could have the rest of the tub to see if I would like it. I did not even know that Benefit makes a shave cream. The cream is very thick, and the thick consistency makes my two-blade razor difficult to glide over skin. No gliding means no close shave. No close shave means missing some spots. Then, I have to shave the same area again, and it leads to redness, nicks and cuts. I also have to rinse the razor off several times as it filled up with the thick cream. My regular drugstore shave gel works better for my skin than this one. I thought I would love the tub packaging, but actually I don't like it. I shave in the shower, and to avoid water gets in, I have to close the lid and stop the shower each time. I know it is a little effort, but it kind of bothers me when I am in a hurry. I hate to be the one to spoil the rating, but this would be on the bottom of my list of shaving products.

  • Vichy Laboratories Thermal Spa Water

    This mist works exactly like Evian Skin Moisturizer. I used to bring one of these on long-haul flights when it was allowed. Today I use it when I spend hours in dry and hot climates. It is an instant refresher, and unlike just water, one quick spray of this mist does not mess up my makeup. I can use it when my face feels dry, and also oily because it does not only hydrates my skin but also is a good way to eliminate oil and sweat off from my face. You can use after or in the middle of playing any outdoor sports. The Evian one became a bit more expensive and harder to find for me than this Vichy Thermal Spa Water. I know this is an unnecessary luxury, but if you get it, I know you will find it very useful and one bottle lasts a long time.

  • Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Scented Candle

    Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Scented Candle

    I LOVE their Eucalyptus Spearmint 3 Wick Candle

    I've been using the BBW Aromatherapy Eucalyptus Spearmint and Tranquil Mint products for years, but I had never tried their candle line. I used to get White Barn candles and lately always get Slatkin candles at BBW. I am glad that I finally try this one! I recently purchased a 14.5 oz 3 Wick Candle in Eucalyptus Spearmint. I love Tranquil Mint bubble bath as well as Eucalyptus Spearmint hand soap, and the scent of this candle definitely reminds me of that. Soothing and relaxing. This candle is perfect to be used when I take a warm minty bath. The combination of the two makes my bathroom like a steam room. I may try another scent, but I know I am going to keep buying this scent for years to come.
