Jaye L.'s Beauty Product Reviews
I really like this foundation. For reference, I'm NC 25-30. I bought the color in 2W1 Sand from Nordstrom for $38 (including tax). It was a toss up between Fresco 2N2 (too peachy IMO, might just buy it for the summer though). DW definitely outperforms Colorstay in terms of longetivity and it does not oxidize. It keeps my face shine free throughout the day as well. I apply it sparingly with my Sigma F80, flat top kabuki. On the other hand, I need to use blush and highlighter to keep my face from looking flat. I also do not like the packaging (no pump). Will buy again!
For reference, ELDW Sand/Fresno, CS Sand Beige, Neutrogena Natural Beige.. I perfectly matched with Nude Beige (when I'm a tad pale -NC25) & Sand Beige (when I'm NC30/ "tanned").
Great foundation! It's not as drying as DW or CS. Like the other reviewers, I hate the brush!! It put me off buying this.. until I saw Kandee Johnson's video & my sis raved about it. I'm glad they changed my mind. It may be a bit pricey for a drugstore foundation (almost 20 cdn with tax) but the results are beautiful. This makes my skin look smoother and radiant, definitely not a flat lifeless canvas. Did not break me out as well! Minus one for transferring to clothes. Will repurchase.
Best.Sheer Nude.Nailpolish.EVER!!!! I love this! This is perfect for the "natural" buffed nails look. NON-streaky (Ballet Slippers, I'm looking at you!!). Totally blows OPI's Bubble Bath, CG's Innocence out of the water. Will buy again!
OMG!! Love this scent!! I adore sweet &flirty scents (PS, Fancy, Hypnotic Poison). Pink Sugar used to be my HG but I was sick of smelling it on EVERYBODY.
Even with the high reviews, I did not expect to like this fragrance a lot (especially since I'm not a fan of *shudder* Snooki nor of Jersey Shore).
The bottle is this loud leopard print -tacky, really. But with a scent as AH-MAZING as this, who cares, right?!
According to fragrantica.com, "...candy, driftwood, chilled lychee, quince flower &kiwi. The heart is ruled by PINK CUPCAKE accord, white jasmine &beach flower. The base includes woody notes &sugared musk."
Bought this unsniffed in the clearance bin of Winners. It wasn't as cheap as I hoped (CDN29.99 + tax).. Only complaint is for an EDP, it doesn't last long on me.
I bought the 3.3 oz dark blue bottle unsniffed due to high reviews from Shopper's Drug Mart for 19.99 cdn plus tax.
Top notes: black cherry & plum
Middle notes: orchid, freesia, & iris
Base notes:amber, musk, & vanilla
I'm no Britney fan, but I ADORE this long-lasting EDP!! It's definitely sweet but unique -very different from the strong synthetic sugary scent of Pink Sugar/the orig Fantasy/ even Fancy!
I feel innocent/seductive when wearing this unique fragrance. Can't stop sniffing my wrists.. It's really so irresistible! Highly recommended!
