Product Review: Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Perfume

I was privileged to try the new fragrance from Yves Saint Laurent that was recently launched this month, romantically named Parisienne.
YSL Parisienne is a refreshing revamp of the core character of YSL Paris-- a woody, refreshing floral perfume. Parisienne takes the basic combination of rose, wood, powder and fruit, and revamps this classic floral. Parisienne modernizes this combination by adding more fruit and a softly smoldering base of woods. Besides the official notes of Damask rose, violet, peony, cranberry, patchouli, vetiver, musk and sandalwood, it also contains urban and bold aromas of vinyl and lacquer.
The bottle reminds me of antique crystal salt and peppershakers =). I thought it was an old woman perfume but, no, it's young and fresh!
I expected an old, powdery floral, but I was surprised to realized that it is very modern and very feminine in the pink way.
Though it maintains the sensuality and sophistication of YSL Paris, YSL Parisienne is up-to-date and trendy. While making a nod to traditional florals (with rose notes, fruit notes, and powdered notes), YSL Parisienne is slightly more modern, youthful and tarted up for a sensual evening or night parties.
The berry notes are not too sweet at all, and the floral notes are modern and youthful. I know the description says there's a vinyl note, but I didn't catch anything of the sort ;). The entire composition is beautiful, romantic, bright, and makes me smile. I was really drawn to it!
It’s now available in various sizes in prices ranging from $39 to $85.

Product Review: L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara

L'Oreal Paris introduces Telescopic Explosion Mascara, the first mascara at mass with a spherical brush and smooth formula to lengthen and separate every little lash. Already a success in Europe, this breakthrough mascara revolutionizes the mascara application process, making it possible to apply from every angle to reach every last lash for a completely fanned-out explosive effect.

What I don't like:
  • it takes me a bit longer to apply than the traditional wand mascara
  • you need to get used to the spherical brush - to avoid messy application
  • it clumps on the second coat
  • the ball brush doesn't curl up lashes- so it's still a must to use an eyelash curler before and after application.

What I like about this product:
  • formula is made of a soft-wax system of paraffin, jojoba oil and palm oil for soft texture and Pro-Vitamin B5 for lash conditioning
  • the round brush makes applying mascara fun!
  • the spherical multi-angle brush reaches lashes at the roots
  • small, it reaches even tiny corner and lower lashes
  • lengthens, thickens and separates every little lash
  • at the end of the day, the mascara stays on well and doesn't smudge

Additional Benefits:
  • Ophthalmologist and allergy tested
  • Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Explosion Mascara will be available by November 2009 in two shades: black and blackest black for a suggested retail price of $9.49. It's definitely a mascara to look out for. ;)

CONTEST: Whooga Boots Giveaway

Win a pair of Whooga Ugg Boots here. Open to all, worldwide.

About Whooga:

Whooga brand is widely considered to be amongst the fastest growing ugg boot brands in the world.

Ugg boots (sometimes called uggs or ug boots) have been used as generic terms for sheepskin boots in Australia since the 1970s, when they first appeared in advertising and other publications. They are a style of unisex sheepskin boots lined with wool on the inside and with a tanned outer surface. Ugg boots often have a synthetic sole, although this is not universal. Uggs have been considered a fashion trend since the early 2000s.

For over 5 years Whooga has developed a trusted and reliable reputation for delivering the worlds warmest ugg boots. Whooga adapts Thermofleece technology, which provides greater warmth with thicker sheepskin micro fibres. This results in an improved ability to regulate the temperature of your feet and body. In other words you’ll feel warmer on colder days, but your feet will still be able to breath naturally and will not overheat.

Whooga ships internationally via an insured service and typically dispatch within 12-48hrs upon placing your order.
