  • Givenchy Absolutely Irresistible Rollerball
    7.0

    Givenchy Absolutely Irresistible Rollerball

    better on t he skin than in the bottle

    Here is what I am getting from the bottle- jasmine flowers mixed with cherry cough syrup. On the skin I get more of the red berries and citrus with less of the chemical cough syrup scent. As it is worn it fades into that rose-like smell. It is nice. It is not wonderful, but I am not put-off by it. It smells clean and floral once worn. I will hold on to this sample – it seems perfect for a late spring day at the park.

  • Bulgari Bvlgari Omnia Green Jade

    Again I picked this because the container was soooo cool. After trying Crystalline I didn’t have high hopes for this one either – and unfortunately that was justified. It has a very sharp pungent scent, it is strong but not as good of a scent.

  • Bulgari BVLGARI Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette Spray

    Ick. Not for me at all. it smells like a very harsh soap mixed with baby powder. Not for me. I think that this was one of the worst fragrances I’ve ever experienced. I am sure it would smell different on other people but on me it was bad. I also didn’t like how it smelled in the sample bottle. I have to admit I picked this specific perfume because I fell in love with the packaging. I thought that the attached rings or infinity symbol was super neat.

  • Dior Pure Poison Eau de Parfum

    Dior Pure Poison Eau de Parfum

    Sweet but not too sweet

    I like it – it is not too sweet, but it is quite sweet. I definitely get the jasmine and sandalwood. It really feels fresh – like a really sweet soap. I will definitely be finishing up this sample. It is now one of my favorite scents.

  • Vera Wang Princess Night Eau de Toilette
    3.0

    Vera Wang Princess Night Eau de Toilette

    very expensive for smelling cheap

    When I first opened this I was smacked in the face with the orange and the rose. I thought “oh no, two busts in one review!” but those two scents have retreated and now I’m getting a lot more of a creamy and sweet smell with a touch of vanilla. I like it a lot more than Rock Princess, but not as much as Alien – though this would definitely be much better for daily wear. I don’t hate it, but I will be giving it out for those who want to try a new fragrance.

  • Thierry Mugler Alien

    It is ok – a little intense. It smells like exotic flowers. I can sort of smell the vanilla but that is way below the other scents. It also smells a little sweet like a citrus. It is nice but for me it would not be a daily use perfume – it is a little too exotic for me for everyday. I’ll keep the sample and use it for special occasions.

  • Rimmel London Volume Accelerator Mascara
    4.0

    Rimmel London Volume Accelerator Mascara

    I used it a couple times before discarding

    The brush has a very strange shape. One side of it is a sort of typical conical curve but the other side is short flat bristles. I have been using it so that the flat end is brushed across my lashes first and then afterwards I go back through with the conical shape and pull through again. I don’t know if this was the plan behind the shape but it seems to work ok. The formula is a liquidy wax. I was not particularly impressed with it. When I applied it it clumped my lashes together making it appear that I had far fewer lashes than I actually have. It did make them look a little longer, but only a little thicker – certainly not 10 times thicker like the product claims. It lasted a good 8 hours before flaking, but it did rub off easily if I rubbed my eye lightly. Overall it was one of my least favorite mascaras of the last few months. Would I get it again? No.

  • Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner
    9.0

    Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner

    Not as great as cream liner but still amazing

    I love it, I love nearly everything about it. Lets start with my one and only complaint. The packaging. I could not get the pencil tip to extend at first, and then once I did it jumped out a lot and broke off about 1/4 inch of the pencil. The important stuff? This smudge stick goes on incredibly smooth. There is a tiny bit of glitter in this particular color but you don’t really see it on the eye. On the eye it has a pearl like sheen. The color I got (Blue Ribbon) is unbelievable. It is the perfect blue for me. It is a blue grey. It kinda reminds me of the skies in Seattle. It doesn’t detract from my actual eye color at all like many blue products do. The grey in it also makes it perfect for not looking too flashy at work. Stila claims the smudge stick is waterproof. It made it through a full shower without movement at all. Even after patting my face dry after the shower it stayed on like a champ. B ecause of this I now have a new go-to pencil style eyeliner. I am still partial to my cream/gels but this is a close second.

  • CellCeuticals NeoCell Micro-Resurfacing Skin Treatment

    CellCeuticals claims “Neo-Cell Micro-Resurfacing Skin Treatment uses natural enzymes and volcanic micro-minerals to gently resurface skin without irritation, revealing smoother, more radiant, and healthier-looking skin. Natural enzymes and volcanic-minerals work together to exfoliate surface skin cells without irritation.” Basically what that means is that it is a mechanical exfoliator that have a little bit of a chemical exfoliator. This cream is thick with sharp little grits. It has no real smell. The grit in it was a little too sharp for me. I didn’t notice it doing any better of a job than my Derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub that costs $15.00 less and while it is also a mechanical exfoliator, it doesn’t hurt and feel like it is damaging my skin. This one hurts. I am giving it a few stars though because my skin does feel cleaner. I’m not going to be finishing this. I wouldn’t be adverse to trying a different product from this company but I am going to stop using this particular product.

  • Lift Lab Lift & Firm Eye Cream

    Lift Lab claims “this intensive LIFT & FIRM Eye Cream redefines eye area to visibly firm and reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, deep wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness and sagginess” I have been seeing teeny tiny fine lines near my eyes developing over the last 6 months *cry*. Since then I started using Skyn. It has definitely halted any more from appearing. BUT THIS!!!! Where did they go!? Seriously, I wish I had taken before and after photos but I wasn’t expecting to really see any changes. I lost some of the lines – not all but they are definitely reduced in number and size. It also soothed and reduced the puffiness under my eyes. Okay, enough raving. this mint green cream is fairly viscous but feels really rich too. The only reason it didn't get 10 stars is because it is $95.00 for half an ounce
