    MAC Powder Blush

    Love it!

    All of MAC's colors are pigments, so you never have to use very much to achieve a good result. Since you never use a lot, it lasts FOREVER. I've had mine in a few different colors for a couple years, and I have yet to run out. It is a very blendable product, as well as true to color. What you see in the compact is basically the color you're going to see on your cheeks. You can apply it very lightly for a more natural look, or more for a flushed appearance. Both look great with this product. No matter how you apply it, your blush will stay in place all day, and it won't fade or smudge... that's the magic of pigments! MAC also has such a big array of colors (around 30 or 40) that there is something for every look. I've been using this for a couple years and I am still completely satisfied!

  • Philosophy Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion
    10.0

    Philosophy Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion

    Absorbs quickly, smells delicious!

    I love everything about this lotion! Amazing Grace is my everyday fragrance. It is delicate and light. The lotion is a very effective moisturizer, and it absorbs into your skin quickly. You never feel greasy after applying it. I love the pump dispenser. It's sanitary and you never have too much lotion. It is a very large bottle and the value for your money is great. I live in Alaska where it is incredibly dry, especially in the winter, and this keeps me moisturized all day and night. As for the firming part, I haven't really noticed anything different, but I'm too skinny to really tell.

  • Philosophy Baby Grace Spray Fragrance
    1.0

    Philosophy Baby Grace Spray Fragrance

    Love Philosophy, but not Baby Grace

    The key notes in Baby Grace include: poppy, pink mimosa, green accord, pepper, creamy white woods, and musk. The combination of these made me feel a touch nauseous. The musk and pepper with the florals smells sour to me... I was not reminded of a baby at all!

  • Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Parfum

    Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Parfum

    No staying power, but I still love this fragrance!

    This is a very light and lovely floral scent. The only drawback is that it has no staying power, even when layered. Be prepared to reapply this a few times a day if you'd like the scent to last. Like many reviewers before me, I'm going to say that this is a very safe fragrance. It is appropriate for females of all ages, it isn't too sexy, and you don't have to worry about over-applying it. I love that there is a size of bottle for all budgets, the smallest bottle (.5 ounces) is only $15. The largest is $50. The smaller bottles spray pumps like to get stuck, and you have to pull the top part of the pump out sometimes. If you love this scent and use it often, you might as well buy the bigger size. I haven't had the same problems with it.

  • Hanae Mori Butterfly Perfume Spray
    10.0

    Hanae Mori Butterfly Perfume Spray

    Complex, yet modern and fun!

    Hanae Mori Butterfly is exotic and complex. Despite what your nose tells you, the key notes are almond and strawberry (not vanilla, but the combination is similar). Other notes include: bilberries, black currant, Bulgarian rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, sandalwood, and praline. It is an elegant and utterly feminine fragrance. Modern and spontaneous just like the woman who wears it! The flowers are carefully grown and hand-picked. And Butterfly is one of the only fragrances to feature a glass top. The folded butterfly wings are a nod to the fashion designer Mori's inspiration, the butterfly. I can not gush enough about how much I adore this fragrance. The price is just right, too, especially when you get the gift set during the holidays. It comes with the shower gel, the fragrance, and a portable rollerball for your handbag. Both the shower gel and the perfume are full size, and it costs around $70.

  • Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover

    Whether it's waterproof, volumizing, or four coats of stuck together mess, Bi-Facil removes it all in one fell swoop, and leaves a faint sweet floral scent behind. It also is fantastic at removing pigment eyeshadows and stubborn eyeliner. It is very effective, but so gentle that I can keep my contact lenses in while I use this. It is a little expensive, but worth the cost.

  • Kate Somerville Detox Daily Cleanser

    I have a mild amount of acne, mostly on my forehead and around my cheekbones. Unlike most detoxifying cleansers, the Kate Somerville Detox daily cleanser is mild. It doesn't dry your skin out. There are only a couple of issues I had with this product: -The tube is awkward to use, you twist the bottom and the ca never fully comes off all the way. I would much rather prefer a more sanitary pump. -The product is a bit runny, and dispenses too quickly. Again, a pump would be more helpful. -Doesn't lather very well. -You need to wipe any makeup you have off before using this product. I start with Lancome Bi-Factil eye makeup remover, and remove any foundation, etc. I have with a warm wash cloth. Otherwise, it will just spread your foundation all over your face and you won't really get clean. However, I feel that the benefits of this product GREATLY outweigh any of the above issues. Once I got accustomed to using this product, I don't think I could go back to my old face wash. My skin is so much more radiant, and I've seen a substantial decrease in the amount of acne I have. It's a bit pricey, but it is well worth it. My skin feels and looks healthier.
