Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System Review

Clarisonic Mia 2

 

For years, my friends have been telling me about how wonderful their Clarisonic is and how I should just hurry up already and buy one. But, I’m a Taurus. I’m very stubborn. I’m always like, “Why do you have to be so bougie? Why is a washcloth not enough for you?” because I mean, come on, this line sells anywhere from $100 to $200. Do we really need to add something like that to our routine? I’ve been using Shiseido‘s manual brush for… Continue reading | 11 Comments

The Lipstick League – Week of 7.20.15

Question of the Week: When it comes to brows, do you tend to gravitate toward pencils, gels, or powders?

EauMG’s Answer: This year I grew out my brows. Yes, grew them out. I have been (well adults did it too) waxing and tweezing since I was 10 years old. It’s time to see what’s really there.

Ormonde Jayne Zizan EDP Perfume Review

Ormonde Jayne Zizan

 

When I first tried Ormonde Jayne Zizan, I didn’t like it. It’s one that is is marketed “for men”. I thought it was too generic. The only thing I liked about this fragrance was the name “Zizan”.

Zizan has all of the elements of a popular fragrances marketed to men but one could argue that… Continue reading

Chanel No. 18 perfume

 

Over the past few years something unpredictable has happened. I’ve become a Chanel fangirl. I can’t get enough of aldehydes, iris and in general, aloof compositions. And if this is what you’re into, Chanel is the brand for you. And to me, it seems rather punk¹ for me to wear such austere, “official” perfumes.

Robert Piguet Calypso EDP Perfume Review

Piguet Calypso

Piguet Calypso is a relaunch of a perfume of the same name from the 1950’s. I have not tried the vintage. I have no idea what it smells like so my disclaimer with this review is that I have no Calypso baggage. I’m just sniffing a floriental that comes in a pretty black bottle.

Calypso opens as a citrus rose with depth of patchouli peeking through. It’s a powdery rose and iris with lilac nuances. However, Calypso isn’t just a floral. The patchouli in this reminds me… Continue reading | 1 Comment
