  • Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

    I've heard so much about this being the best and most classic facial cleanser ever....but for me, I was totally not impressed. Actually, I didn't like it at all. I don't have sensitive skin or anything...so i just used it because it's supposed to be great. I felt that it definitely made my skin feel drier than usual and I kind of wanted to wash my face again with something more moisturizing and then try to do a moisture mask because this did not make my skin feel nice at all. I threw the bottle out. I think in this case, I got what I paid for.

  • Estee Lauder Verite Light Lotion Cleanser

    I went to the estee lauder counter in search of a blush....and the sales associate used this to clean off my face. She didn't try to push it or anything...she just used it. It made my face feel so fresh and so incredibly clean that I couldn't stop thinking about it the whole time that she tried the different blushes on my skin. My face felt moistened and alive...she took all of the makeup off in once swipe without and pulling or drying. after she was done trying out different blushes on me, I shyly asked what she had used to remove the make up (thinking that it was probably one of those "special cleansers" not for resale, but behind the counter). She got surprised and took out the bottle to show me. This is worth every penny spent as it the bottle lasts forever ...when you dont have time to wash your face well but need to do over your make up, this will save you better than any towelette. I became addicted immediately. Leaves your face, soft moisturized and fresh in a jiffy. Highly recommended...i'm surprised this product doesn't get more hype! Just wipe it off and go

  • Dolce & Gabbana The One

    This scent is sexy, yet comforting...strong, yet feminine...and perfect for day or night. I am a perfume addict...but this is the one that I've been through four bottles of (first perfume that i've ever bought more than once...since my teenage CKone years). This can easily become my signature scent and I'm always sad to the see the bottle empty. I love it, always need it.

  • Chanel Allure Eau de Toilette Spray
    8.0

    Chanel Allure Eau de Toilette Spray

    My Go To...warm and comforting, every day scent

    This is the type of scent that would become your signature scent for years. there's a warmth to this scent without making it musky. There's no real floral backing, which I love...because the florals can be excessive (think chanel no. 5, blech!) This is just a really nice scent that you like to linker on your clothes and exudes a sexy strength in confidence. The scent has great lasting power and smell like quality...nothing cheap here. When in doubt, this or D&G The One are my go to's for every day. nice classic for your perfume tray. Warning: this smells amazing on me and everyone is always asking what i'm wearing, but once I put some on my mom and it was TERRIBLE. she's a more floral person. Same happened with my sister. So if you are an amber, vanilla, sandalwood/warm scents/musky person..then this is for you, but if you are a light floral then maybe try it on and walk around for a while.

  • Estee Lauder Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang

    Finally a perfume with my three favorite scents: vanilla, sandalwood and amber. I'm not a floral perfume fan...but I do love something deep, mysterious...comforting in some way. This is the type of smell that is not musky, but lingers on your clothes after a while...no cheap vanilla smell, just a rich, full bodied scent that is intoxicating. This has become my go to perfume. Beneath all the warmth and musk, there's a nice freshness as well as a strength in it...but no too masculine. This is an every day scent that I highly recommend.

  • Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment

    i went to a high end salon to get a blow out...and they used this. I saw nothing special about my hair that day, but they pushed and pushed until I gave in and bought this product. One of the worst beauty investments that I've ever made. Not only did this product smell really bad...but it just didn't work. It wasn't thick and luxurious like a regular deep conditioner...it was somewhat thin and didn't feel good on my hair at all. I'm not sure how this product gets any good reviews...my hair isn't that damaged and I've never color treated it, yet it did not look good at all after using. I gave it one week...but no, this product never worked. Total waste.

  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation Invisible Cover Foundation

    I'm always scared of falling into a beauty rut...so no matter how much I love something, i'm always looking for the next best product. I got this foundation about two years ago and rebought bottles since....but this year I decided that I should try to venture out and change. I have dark skin with golden undertones...a hard color to match. I tried numerous other foundations in an effort to get away from this one: Bobbi Brown (known for success with darker tones), YSL Illuminating (supposed to be amazing), Vincent Longo (also great for many skin tones) and finally put this one on just to compare...after having four different foundations on just to compare...i have to say, this one was the most perfect after all. It provides a glow, and a dewy finish...not a pore can be detected and it's moisturizing, glides on easily and lasts all day. what more was i looking for? I guess just a different brand. At the end of the day, this is tried and true...a real winner and definitely recommended for all. Worth every drop. Oh, and when it runs out, you can always unscrew the stop and use a qtip...this is not one of those pump containers that makes it impossible to get into. Buy this for a fresh, dewy look. Absolute perfection.

  • Tresemm√© Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

    I love this thermal heat protectant spray. This spray definitely keeps ends from getting parched and hair stays bouncy and healthy looking. Perfect protector and the price is also great. This is no Moroccan hair oil...but it does the job and protects my hair.

  • CARGO Lip Gloss Quad

    CARGO Lip Gloss Quad

    Great Colors, Low on Lasting Power

    I love this gloss...for the color. And for the original look. But it's true, these glosses don't really last...and the tin is deceptively shallow. For the price, it's very little gloss ...yet I continue to buy it just because there are two colors in the quads that I can't find anywhere else and I really love them. It's a love hate relationship. I was out one night and a girlfriend saw my quad and instantly fell in love...so I bought her one for Christmas. We both feel the same way, we absolutely love and die for the colors in the quads...universally flattering defined! BUT she has the same feeling, too little gloss, doesn't last long and it's so soft that she stuck her finger through and messed up one of the pots. Yet, we both continue to buy just for color. I wouldn't recommend to start this habit with cargo. I have the quad in both Oceania and Topanga? (I forgot the name of the second one, b ut it's discontinued so Oceania is the closest one. It's a nice pallette of pinks.

  • Buxom Full-on Lip Polish
    5.0

    Buxom Full-on Lip Polish

    Review subject

    I already have pretty plush lips, but I just liked this one for the color...I have dark/medium skin and have LOLITA. It's a nice somewhat nude/mauve color that looks natural and understated. Nice look for day or a sunday. The only issues that I have with this gloss is that it comes off VERY easily/doesn't last very long at all and the tingling sensation takes a little time to get used to. I guess that's supposed to make your lips plump up, but I can't really tell. it's kind of like rubbing some cold kind of menthol on your lips...not really a sexy feeling. Bottom line: the color selections in this line are really great, but the feeling of the gloss and the low lasting power are not so great. Decent gloss but nothing to get excited about.
