Scents are something very personal for each person, so it's hard to recommend one to someone. I had this two for a while and I loved them both. Firstly the VS noir was very sexy and sultry scent, with fruity notes that you can wear day and night. I loved it and will possibly re-buy it in the future.
Twirl by Kate Spade might be one of my favorite scents to wear on the summer days, it is very light, sweet and fresh, I also got it on Tjmax for 60% off or something like that which it's a plus.
As for makeup, I rarely finish products and if I do generally are mascaras and concealers. There to show what is that we use the most of. I got this sample of the Extreme Party mascara way back in December of last year, just now got to use the mascara and I really like it. It gave my lashes great volume, though I did noticed some flaking at the end of the day. Might repurchase.
I have heard a million times about the Maybelline Dream Lumi touch Highlighting concealer (that was a mouth full), which supposedly it's a dupe to the YSL Touche Eclat concealer pen. I am not about to spend that kind of money into a luminizing concealer in the YSL one, so I gave this one a go.
I really liked it, and will totally re-buy it in the future. I bought it two shades too light for me, I am not sure why I think I am this white person when I go makeup shopping, but ivory it's definitely NOT my color...
Now to the more boring bits, I finished a handful of skin care items as well. For starters the LAMER eye cream. Now I bought this extremely expensive eye cream one day that my eyes where specially puffy, and I was freaking out on getting eyebags, which runs in my family.
Now in the moment of my delirium I was brain washed by a really good sales associates in Nordstroms who said this was the best for prevention... of course I bought the damn thing, and enjoyed every ounce of it. Would I buy it again? maybe when I am old and it makes more sense.
In my purse I carry a small hand cream with me at all times, and this one was the last one I finished up. It was pretty good, not a super strong scent, very moisturizing also. Not sure I will re-purchase it, since there is a lot of good creams out there for cheaper.
For the effaclar duo, I loved it, I have used several of this, will repurchase and in fact already have.
I haven't tried much of what Lush has to offer, other than bath bombs. The Ocean Salt face and body scrub was ok, I don't think I will re-buy it, mostly because I felt it didn't really do much for my skin, and the smell got to be too much in the end.
I used up the Caudalie divine oil during the end of spring, it has nearly to no smell and my skin soaked it up so fast, I loved it while it lasted. Don't think I will repurchase it, because of it's price tag though.
The Caudalie face foaming cleanser was very good, very light and gentle on my skin, I think even though I use it up on the end of Spring and early Summer days, it would have been a better cleanser to use in the winter times, when my face it's a bit dryer. I feel for my skin in the summer time was a little too gentle.
I am a happy camper ever since I found the Batiste dry shampoos, there are very good in giving my hair volume, it smells good, it's cheap. The only con is that it does leave a white cast on my hair, though I can get most of it off by teasing and brushing my hair after applying.
Macademia healing oil was very good for my hair, I am waiting for my next trip to ULTA to pick up a new one, I felt it gave the super dry ends on my hair a bit of extra shine and moisture, plus I love the smell.
Carol's Daughter MONOI repair mask was a sample I got on a Birchbox last year, I can't say it did much to my hair though.
This sorts of posts tend to get long, but I hope each mini review help someone out there to decide whether or not to get something.
