    Korres Lip Butter

    Tastes & Works Great!

    I have always had dry skin, and unfortunately it fell to my lips too. I constantly struggled with dry skin, and I tried for years to fix it with oils, creams, and other miracle fixes to no avail. About 6 months ago I stumbled on St. Ives elastin moisturizer (St. Ives Renewing Collagen Elastin Advanced Body Moisturizer + FREE Lip Rescue Ultra Hydrating With Shea Butter) and shockingly enough within 10 days it fixed all my dry skin problems. Unfortunately, the St. Ives isn't intended for lips and doesn't exactly taste great, so my lips were still left to suffer the chapped, dry fate. I went through all sorts of lip balms, natural based lip butters, and none of them seemed to work. They'd look greasy, taste bad, or clog my pores and give me blemishes around my mouth until I found the Korres brand. The Korres lip butter is very light and it absorbs well on my lips, giving them the moisture I was always trying to find. The taste is also great with the jasmine flavor- it's very fruity which I personally love. It's given me hope for my dating life when I thought there was none. In the last 2 months since using the Korres, I haven't had any chapping or cracks in my lips. Between the Korres and the St. Ives, my body as a whole looks and feels better and it definitely shows in how I carry myself.

  • It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil

    I have been very happy with a few eyebrow pencils -- tarte, Anastasia, even Cover Girl make some very nice ones that I bought more than once. But obviously something was missing because I kept looking around, and now I am finally easily pleased with my eyebrows. :-) The pencil is like a powder, so it blends wonderfully with the attached spoolie. The pencil is totally smooth and gentle going on. A little goes a long, long way, I haven't even had to twist it up once, and I've been using it for a few weeks now. I like to look natural, but polished. This gives me exactly that look. I have dark blonde hair with dark eyebrows, the pencil looks gray but is somehow perfect with both my light and dark eyebrow hairs. I also have to rave about the spoolie itself. It seems sturdy, which I appreciate. I like my routine to be hassle free, and if I can just flip the brush end over and use it, I am happy. I have seen other brushes come loose rather quickly, so I end up having to maneuver to hold it in place, or else take an extra 5 seconds to reach over and get a separate spoolie. But I'd rather just pencil, blend, and be done. Seriously, I think my search is over. Please make this forever! PROS Blends Well Easy To Apply Good Colors Good Pigmentation Long Lasting Smooth Look

  • Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Parfum

    Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Parfum

    The fragrance doesn't last like the other Amazing Grace fragrances

    Soft, fresh, Subtle, and never overpowering. Have received many comments on how wonderful the fragrance is. I love all of the Grace lines. I started out with Amazing Grace and from there tried the rest. I use them every day. I have all of the perfume oils in the Grace line and this one is my least favorite. When you attempt to apply this, it runs out of the end of the rollerball. You never get to just roll it on. The smell is fragrant at first but once it is absorbed that is it. The smell is gone. The bath gel, spray fragrances, body lotions, etc all last.

  • Victoria's Secret Secret Garden Collection Refreshing Body Mist

    I have bought every single VS Garden Collection Scent and this is by far my favorite of them all. It is a very sexy scent and smells exactly how the name sounds. It seems a little heavier then some of the others because it seems to linger on longer throughout the day. Absolutely love it!

  • ESCADA Magnetism
    10.0

    ESCADA Magnetism

    Exotic, sophisticated scent

    I took a chance on this perfume because it received glowing reviews here and elsewhere. The reviews weren't wrong. Magnetism is a wonderful scent. I can't put my finger on the exact nature of its wonderful smell except to say it is quite powdery--almost too powdery masking some of the other notes. Not a bad thing just be sure powdery scents are your style. Magnetism is very heavy and sultry. Definitely not crisp or citrus y. Thus, it is probably better suited to wear in the evening rather than all day. Moreover, it is such a heavy scent that you'll probably want to save it for evening wear because you might tire of smelling it all day. If you are a fan of exotic oriental scents you have to try Magnetism. Unlike others indicated, it lasts plenty long on me. The scent was strong enough hours later for the those up close and personal whiffs intimacy brings. My all time favorite oriental perfume was Xi'a Xi'ang by Revlon. Smelling it was heaven on earth. It was very sensual and ALWAYS drove the men crazy. Men were positively seduced by it. They loved it...and so did I. Sadly, XX was discontinued many years ago. It was a cheap drugstore perfume but I had yet to find its equal in any price range until I smelled Magnetism. One whiff of Magnetism and I was immediately transported back to my XX bottle; my nose will always remember that exotic scent. Magnetism smells almost exactly like it except it is more powdery because of its stronger base notes. For comparison, XX notes are: Top Notes: lemon and tangerine. Middle Notes: jasmine, rose, gardenia and orange blossom. Base Notes: Peach, plum, raspberry, vanilla, sandalwood, patchouli and oakmoss. Magnetism notes are: Top notes: Pineapple, blackcurrant, melon, lychee, cassia, leafy greens Heart notes: Rose, magnolia, jasmine, heliotrope, iris, freesia, basil, thyme, Lily of the Valley, green notes Base notes: Cashmere vanilla, caramel, sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, benzine, amber, musk After all these years and many scents later I am in heaven once again!!! If Escada ever discontinues Magnetism I will stockpile hoards of it. It is worth every penny.

    Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau de Toilette

    Sexy and Just Plain Delicious-Smelling!

    When purchasing perfumes, I like to wear scents that compliment the seasons and Christian Dior's, Hypnotic Poison, is a sexy, alluring fragrance for the Fall and Winter. It has a sensual aroma of vanilla, sandalwood and amber that makes one think of warm fireplaces, and long,toasty nights keeping warm with someone special. I enjoy the lingering scent of the perfume, without it being overwhelming. PROS Draws Compliments Great Smell Long-Lasting Not Overpowering Sensual Sexy

  • Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things Noir Eau De Parfum

    absolutely love this perfume, it's sweet, and beautiful, and feminine. It is undoubtedly one of the best possible perfumes I have, and I constantly am told how wonderful it smells...one tiny problem, it has zero staying power. You could shower in it, and a half an hour later, can't tell you ever put it on. I have recently begun to layer it with the lotion, and that helps a bit, so if you buy the perfume, consider buying the lotion as well.
