    Essie Nail Polish

    Essie's Penny Talk

    I wanted to review a specific color, partially because I think all colors and textures of nail polishes are made with different formuals so its hard to review an entire brand of polishes. I just discovered Essie's "Penny Talk" which is a metallic bronze, which as its name implies, looks like the texture of a bright new penny on your nail. I've found this shade to be long-lasting and more durable than other Essie polishes when confronted with washing dishes, typing and swimming. Day three looks just as good as day one. Its a spectacular color and perfect for summer. I have light/medium skin and I think it picks up a tan very well. Its also a nice play on wearing a nuetral, I don't feel weird about wearing it to work as its not flashy and goes with anything.

  • Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

    Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

    Amazing But...

    Alright this is by far the best eyelash curler on the market. It not good, its great. Eyelashes look fuller and longer no questions asked. Shu Uemura knew what they were doing when they made this. My complaint is regarding the rubber refills. After I had had mine for some time, I had to replace the rubber insert that bends the lash when you press. Turns out those tiny peices are fifteen dollars. Almost as much as the curler! Thinking I'd go buy generic inserts for it, I quicly found out Shu Uemura's eyelash curler has different dimensions and you have to buy their ridiculously overpriced inserts. I'm trying to find them at a lower price but I might forgo the curler just because I can't afford to be dropping that kind of money on tiny peices of rubber.

  • DKNY Be Delicious Eau de Parfum

    I honestly want to like this perfume but I think it's really overhyped. It's fruity but I don't think its 'perfume' fruity. It reminds me of the smell that lingers after you've washed your hands with a scented bathsoap. Sure its not unpleasant but its dull and wearing it I felt like a glade candle. I know I'm going against the grain but I think there are far better fruit-inspired modern perfumes that are more unique and polished than this one.

  • Davidoff Cool Water Woman Eau De Toilette Spray

    I've always liked this fragrance, it seems like it has been around for ages and I know a few people who swear by it. I received a sample of it not long ago and I plan on buying it when I'm done with the sample. It's a light clean scent that is perfect for more casual settings. Its a very sporty fragrance to me, like fresh cut grass mixed with fruity notes. Its not to owerpowering either, it gives off the understated, 'I'd just got out of the shower' vibe. I'd say those who prefer more feminine scents should steer clear becuase it does feel more outdoorsy than you might like.

  • Rimmel London The Kate Collection

    I bought the lighter beige color and the only nice thing I can say about this product is that the packaging is sleek. Other than that the color was bland, came off in about 20 minutes and the formula dreid out my lips. It also was difficult to transfer the product onto my lips, I had to press like a crayon just to put it on. Not worth the 5 dollars it costs.

  • Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

    Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

    Great Color, Long Lasting, Good for Lips

    I was excited when this first came out partially because the ad featuring Olivia Wilde's cherry red lips was gorgeous! I usually dont like spending upward of seven dollars for drugstore lip products because with lip products I find I either love them or never touch them after their first initial failed use. I went out on a limb and forked over the ten dollars and was so delighted. I bought #10, a beige, pink and I love it! The color is pretty, lasts for hours and goes on easily without melting onto the corners of my mouth. Probably the best part about this product is that it applies like a lip balm and you can layer it for more dramatic color. It is an incredubly soft formula that somehow also looks matte. I'm excited to get another color. The pink is really pretty, I have light/medium skin and it pops without looking like Barbie's mouth. I've been having a difficult time finding a lip color I like that is long-lasting and I'm super happy about this buy.

  • Chanel Chance Eau de Toilette Spray

    Chanel Chance Eau de Toilette Spray

    One of My All time Fragrances

    First off, this scent is so pretty, it is feminine and sophisitcated a light citrus and floral that is light but noticeable. My mom has worn this fragrance since I was a kid and it reminds me of her. It's a happy scent, one that can work for everyday but it also sophisticated enough for a night out. I steal a spritz every now and again from her and get compliments whenever I do. It's certainly one of thoise timeless fragrances everyone can agree on.

  • Lolita Lempicka Fleur de Corail Eau de Parfum Spray

    I tend to like the beachier scents, ones with that salty and fruity feel that brings you back to childhhod summers and after trying this at a sephora, I fell in love; its the perfect beachy scent. I'm on bottle number three now and I'm constantly getting compliments on how good I always smell. It is fresh but fun and doesnt change over time and not overpowering at all. I also liek that it is a feminine beachy scent as they often tend to be too fruity and smells almsot like a shower gel. My best freind calls it a "happy" scent. I wear it primaarily in the Spring and Summer but every now and again I wear it to brighten up a rainy winter day. The bottle is really pretty too, and I love setting it with the shells and seaglass I've collected at beaches I've been too. I haven't found a Lolita fragrance I didn't like and this one takes the cake. Its beautiful and I reccomend at least getting a sample.

    Ralph Lauren Ralph Cool Eau de Toilette Spray

    Nice Scent, Overpowering Though

    I bought this scent moments after trying it on becuase I was in love with how it first smelled on me. It initially was fruity and tropical while still remaining sophisticated. As the day progressed however, it seemed like it's notes were unfolding until it became really strong and overpowering. I don't know how but I feel like it got musky, maybe from mixing with my own scent. By the end of the day I had a headache from it. I ended up giving it away to a friend who said the same thing after using it.

  • Calvin Klein Eternity for Women Eau De Parfum Spray

    This scent is the more clean, fresh laundry smell version of Ralph Lauren's Romance. It's perfect for less casual outings and for older audeinces. Differing from Romance though, it is a tad lighter and would not be as overpowering for daytime wear. I was given this by a friend who didn't like it reminding me its not for eveyone but for those who do I can see why it is considered a staple. Even the bottle itself has that timeless chic about it. It look's great on any vanity or countertop.
