Maybelline ColorSensational Color Whisper Part III

Saw this Maybelline ColorSensational Color Whisper in 260 I Crave Coral on Citrine's blog way back in the spring, but for some reason the Walgreens in SF didn't stock them until the summer right before I moved away.

I have already mentioned I don't like this formula so much, but this color looked like a pretty orange so I decided to pick it up when I saw it. 

260 I Crave Coral: and it's orange indeed, not coral at all! On my lips it turns a tad peachy but still no signs of coral, which is odd because oranges usually turn coral on me. Hmm... Either way, I do like the seemingly shimmer free translucency, and an orange that stays orange is relatively rare in my stash so I'm glad I bought it.

Coffret D'Or Full Memory Rouge Part II

Having tried the Coffret D'Or Full Memory Rouge in RD-168 Color, I got curious and wanted to know what the Glow version would be like, so I picked up this OR-98 Glow on a whim to fill my cart. This lipstick has been discontinued for a couple of years now, but they're still available on E(vil)bay if you're curious.

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense

This mini Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in 03 Mightiest Maraschino was among the GWP items from Sak's 5th Avenue's Holiday 2013 GWP, and it took me a long time to even try it despite my love for the original Chubby Sticks. The reason being, as you can guess, it's way too intense for my taste ^.^'

Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick

Got this mini Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in the controversial color Celebutard in a recent Sephora order. I hesitated with this review for a while because of all the uproar with this color name, and late last year Sephora had to pull this color off of their shelves because of all the outrage. So imagine my surprise when it showed up as one of the freebie options at checkout, and out of curiosity I picked it ^.^

Let me put this out there - yes, I do think the name is offensive. My argument is along the same line as this article's, if "n1gfuschia" and "h*m*pink" are not okay, then "celebutard" is not okay either.

Lancome Le Crayon Khol

Had two of these 0.7g/0.02oz. GWP size of Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Black Coffee. I gave one to my sister who uses it to fill in her brows and kept one for myself.

Caudalie Merlot Friction Scrub

During the same Caudalie summer sale I also picked up this 150g/5.3oz. tub of Merlot Friction Scrub. I loved the Vinotherapie Crushed Cabernet Scrub which was a brown sugar scrub that left my skin moisturized and super soft the next day, so I thought I'd give this one a try too.

Caudalie Fleur de Vigne Shower Gel

Another quick review for this 200mL/6.7fl oz. of Caudalie Fleur de Vigne Shower Gel I bought this past summer in the green tube.

Like The des Vigne Shower Gel in the red wine tube, this one is soap free and SLS-free and does not foam much if at all. It's a tad milder too, so not as drying. I like this one much better, as it has the same leafy vine scent as most other Caudalie products, like the Cleansing Water for example. I'm looking forward to the orange tube most though, as it's supposed to be a delicious peach scent. Will post a short review for that one too when I get to using it.

Caudalie The des Vigne Shower Gel

Caudalie had a nice sale this past summer and I picked up 3 different shower gels, each in a 200mL/6.7fl oz squeeze tube. I was curious to try them out as they are soap free with no sodium laureth sulfate. This is a quick review for The des Vigne Shower Gel in the wine colored tube.

I find that most of the fragrance in Caudalie products are nice, this shower gel I didn't like at all! It smelled like a grapey old lady's perfume! It doesn't foam much, if at all, being soap and SLS free. And yet it's still too harsh and drying for my skin T.T Thankfully hubby didn't mind it so I just left him to finish the tube while I deferred to my favorite L'Occitane Bonne Mere Gentle Body Wash Milk, which of course has been discontinued. Argh!

Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB Cream

So, having tried - and liked - Nature's Republic Snail Therapy skincare, I spotted this Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB Cream and was super curious. The 15g pump bottle I purchased came with a 5g tube as GWP, although it's unlikely that I'll ever finish that 15g to begin with!
