Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

A nice boy gave this to me for Channukkah because I left my toiletry bag and all the make-up therein on a plane over Thanksgiving. Now, being the low-maintenance girl I am (ha), I had never really splurged on high-end cosmetics. What would be the point? I thought. All pigment is the same! Wrong, wrong, wrong. I have to use SO LITTLE makeup now to get the same results I was getting with my old drugstore makeup. Frankly, I'm into economy, and it has to be better for my skin. A+

  • You really cannot judge a fragrance solely by the name/bottle/celebrity/color/price attached to it. I feel you have to experience it to really know for sure if it's for you (much like another love of mine, wine). Case in point... You really cannot judge a fragrance solely by the name/bottle/celebrity/color/price attached to it. I feel you have to experience it to really know for sure if it's for you (much like another love of mine, wine). Case in point - as soon as I heard Black Star was Teen-Friendly rocker Avril Lavigne's scent, it did cross my mind for a second that it would be sweet, sweet, sweet - and probably not that complex. Well, I was very wrong (see - don't assume!). This is a scent that young teens/younger women (who are her primary fan base) will probably love, but many other women will also love it because it's really good. Avril describes the scent as "edgy and feminine in a fun way", and I have to say that really does capture the essence I got from it. The opening notes of pear were very bright, fresh and clear - which I really enjoyed. There was also a plum note that also came into play early in the scent on my skin, which remained throughout. As time went on I got a bit more of the floral from the hibiscus flower, but mostly it was a light plum/pear mix and I loved it! The dry down is where the "edgy" vibe comes from, in that it's a dark chocolate - which was the perfect mix of sweet and dry on my skin, with just a touch of coconut/vanilla swirled in as well. The lasting power was also very good. While this is perfectly suitable for day time, I also liked it for an evening scent as well. As for the packaging, I found myself loving it more and more the longer I spent time with it. The pink/black color scheme and "studded" effect with the silver geometric cubes is really fun and different. The shape of the bottle is reminiscent of a few other scents I can think of (and probably you can too), but the shape has a nice twist to the idea in that it's a unique asymmetrical star (which also has a different effect if you look at the bottle from a bird's eye view), and underneath the black cap is a studded silver metal piece which can be slipped on and worn as a ring or as a pendant. Cool!

The texture of this gloss is a slightly thin liquid gel that is not sticky. I immediately felt my lips soften while the gloss itself was so light it felt like it had completely absorbed within seconds. The ripening lip tint happened within a few minutes. It was a very pretty natural pink that just deepened my natural lip color, but with the added shimmer. In addition, my lips were perfectly moisturized and never felt dry or chapped while I wore it. I loved the subtle tint effect that didn't become overwhelmingly bright pink/urple, but still made me feel like I wasn't completely bare. The shimmer was really, really pretty. It was not over the top in any way but just added that special touch to my perfectly pink shade. It also had a very pleasant light berry fragrance/flavor. The staying power was also very good, with my pink shade lasting several hours before I needed a touch up. I also loved using it just before bed so that I woke up with that little extra bit of color on my lips (which I'm not sure if my husband actually noticed! :) This is a special lip product that I don't plan on being without now!

They are Uber Chic wet wipes for adults – and they were super effective. Before my shower I would pull out one of the rectangular-shaped wipes and use the textured side (with several rows of exfoliating granules built into the wipe) and applied it to my major trouble spots – my elbows and knees. It should be noted that the textured side is not painfully rough, but it is very abrasive, and not as wet as a normal wet wipe. This is what makes it a good choice for those who have skin that is not very sensitive and prefer a more aggressive scrub. The fragrance is a pleasant pink grapefruit that does not linger. I was very impressed with how easily the wipes got rid of the dead skin and made these areas feel nice and soft. I then turned it over to the softer, buffing side of the wipe and applied that in the circular motion for a minute or two. When I was finished, my skin looked much, much, better, and after using them several times a week for several weeks, my skin was absolutely glowing. While the container itself is a tad bulky for travel, I simply put them in a zip lock bag for packing, and then kept the container at home or the gym. Just remember that since they are a drier wipe, it’s essential that you remember to close the lid completely. I love innovation, effectiveness, and the bright pink spoke to me as well. This is a winner in my book. Note: This is NOT a product for those with sensitive skin!

If you are looking for a bold, striking lip that’s not too dramatic or showy then this is the color! The formula itself is very pigmented (no sheerness here) with a soft satiny shine, without shimmer. The texture was smooth, and was very moisturizing for my dry lips. This is a long lasting formula, so the lasting power was fantastic and also worked well in humid weather for me. It is non-scented. This color is a dynamic medium-toned pink that will work well with many skin tones, best up to a Gabrielle Union shade. The packaging, as with all of the Dior products, is exquisite, glamorous and yet still simple. It’s the classic deep blue Dior’s cased with a touch of silver. This is simply a great lipstick that looked gorgeous on me!

This is one of the freshest, vibrant and uplifting fragrances I have tried in quite a while. To begin with the packaging, I loved the gorgeous fuchsia colored glass bottle at first site. The beautifully gold cut out YSL logo band beneath the stopper is also a glamorous touch I loved. The very first time I used it, it really blew me away. The combination which did this for me was their lychee note combined with the rose. This gave it the edge and uniqueness it needed to really make this stand out, as Rose can at times in fragrances come across as over familiar and without much thought. At first the citrus notes burst though to my nose as well as on my skin, and then the sweetness kicked in (with notes of peony and litchi.). After a short period of time the freesia softened the citrusy sweetness with a pinch of pink pepper, and then I could detect a very mild a rose note and a hint of soft wood. As the day went on it mellowed and mellowed but the lasting power was phenomenal. The fragrance ended up being very mild, and I found that I continually smelled my wrist because of the lovely scent, and even as it mellowed towards the end of the day. What I really loved is the sense I of joy I got from this fragrance. It just made me smile every time I wore it. This scent does not overplay the rose, not does it overdo the lychee. The base is lovely and dry, woodsy but not overly so. This has originality and an olfactory punch. Modern and chic, contemporary and glamorous. The bottle is simple but with a colorful modern-young-glamorous vibe – and yes, even though I’m not a real “pinky” type of girl, I loved that they did a gorgeous fuchsia pink bottle. I Loved looking at the bottle just as much as I loved wearing the fragrance. This makes a perfect day fragrance, and (which also came to mind), a Sunday church/brunch or wedding fragrance, and of course an amazing Valentine’s gift for the fragrance lover in your life!

I really loved this product (my first time using a liquid blush). This color appears bright pink (almost neon) in the tube, but it blended beautifully on my skin to a subtle rosy pink. This was just perfect for an everyday look, and gave me an incredible glow. The texture is simply divine. It only took a few small pumps of the liquid on each cheek and my fingers (or a small brush) to blend in and achieve a perfect look every time. This blush was very easy to blend onto my skin. The result was really polished and subtle. I also love that it gave me you a true glow, without being shimmery or looking greasy or shiny. The lasting power is also amazing. I was very surprised that this did not wear off quickly, since it is a liquid. This blush lasts as long if not longer than some of my favorite powder blushes! The product is also versatile. I also mixed a few drops with my liquid foundation and even my tinted moisturizer which gave me an incredible look as well. Using it this way gave my complexion a boost and made me look radiant overall (I choose to do this in the evening especially). Since it’s so pigmented and not much is needed to achieve a look, this will also last a very long time, which is another bonus! This is limited edition (spring 2008)…run don’t walk to get this one girls!” Note: If you have very oily skin, this should be used sparingly.

I think this may be one of the prettiest shades in the whole Fafi collection as a matter of fact. Hipness gave me a natural, coral/peachy-pink glow (no shimmer) on me. It's very pigmented, so all I needed was a light swipe of the blush (with my mac 129 brush) to give me a beautiful glow. This is truly a beautiful blush with a nice, silky texture, making it very blendable. Although it is listed as a frost, I didn’t see any shimmer on my skin (but it does appear there is a small amount in the pan). What I loved about this shade is that it really brightened up my face without calling attention to the fact that I was wearing blush. This will work best up to an Oprah shade. Since this is limited edition, you may want to double up on this one!

OK girls --for those of you who love cute makeup packaging and also expect a quality product, Hard Candy has created the ultimate kit! I LOVE this kit and by the end of my review period, I could not pry this out of my bag! (Yes, I especially loved the adorable Chinese take out package!!!) This is super small – (1"in x 3.5"in x 2” in) and light weight to carry with me for touch ups. Now on to the actual kit contents… This very cute multi-level (3 levels) makeup palette contains 8 tiny eye shadows in various colors (Note: they are on the sparkly side), 2 concealers, a blush, a bronzer, 6 lip glosses, tiny black eyeliner and black mascara. Most of the eye shadows are very workable and flattering shades and the lip glosses are cute with many browns, reds and pink which are on the sheer/medium finish side. I found that my favorite product in this case was a total surprise -- the concealers...yes, the concealers. The coverage was fantastic and the color match was very good as well. This kit really contains everything you need to create a full face! The products also smell yummy, like sugar, the blush is a nice color, and the bronzer is also very flattering with good wear. The mascara is GREAT as well and I would use it solo. The palette itself has a cute mirror, and while the applicators are fine for on the go application, overall I found better results using my professional brushes applying it at home

It gives a super-close shave on bikini and underarms. I love to use it with shave gel, followed by ingrown hair pads . My underarms even have a smooth and silky texture when I am all done! The razor itself is nicely ergonomic and I LOVE the vibrations, which are just enough to feel soothing but not so much as to be annoying or distracting while you are shaving. Just a light touch of the little silver button activates the vibration (you can also use it without turning the vibrations on). Cute packaging and I didn't ever cut myself either. When I was in a real rush, I was even able to use the razor with just moist skin and no shaving cream and I STILL got great results and very few, if any, razor bumps. This is now the ONLY razor I will use!

I've been a big fan of Sue Devitt's products for some time now, but even I was stunned at how much I loved this color and how truly unique it is! First off, this shadow, like all of her silky sheen's, is truly like brushing silk across your lids. The texture is smooth, blendable and yet somewhat creamy at the same time. The color itself is simply stunning. At first glance it looks like a deep eggplant with a touch of grey, but on the eyelid however, it shows up a bit more brown and really complimented my eye color. There is a sheen (but not sparkle) to this color which is SO flattering. It wears during the day very well with very little smudging or creasing. I used it as a base eye color, and also wet to go over a smoky eye look at night. This is a color that every woman should own when you want to get away from a basic brown, and not quite do a more bright color like purple, green or blue. Simply beautiful like all of Sue's products.

I would classify this as citrusy and fresh. (I’ve used several other mark fragrances and body products and in my opinion, this is mark's best fragrance yet). This is a lighter version of the fragrance, but when I put this on first, it really gave the perfume more staying power. I also loved to spray it on after a bath. I believe this one is in a different league than the last few mark scents. The name Sassy is cute, and the bottle is adorable. The moisturizer is good, but if you have very dry skin you may still need a touch of your favorite lotion on key spots like elbows, knees, etc. I hope they keep this one around for a long time. I've been using it non-stop since I got it and for this to be a dry oil spray, the scent lasts forever. P.S. When I come across clothing that I had on when I wore this fragrance, it still smells as fresh as when I sprayed it.
