In head the freshness of the mandarin sparkles. A floral heart like a petal, light and  delicate, reveals a soft and enveloping base note. The very essence of flowers in a perfume. A Pure, Sparkling and Delicate perfume. A floral bouquet with a wooded trail. Top Notes: mandarin, rose petals Heart Notes: lily Base Notes: white wood

Very nice for a change but the original is better
Date:23 October 2012

Very nice fragrance, where rose is quite predominant. It combines well with lily and a hint of mandarin and the notes have a fresh exit wrapped in the white wood. I love all Issey Miyake fragrances, but I have to say that this will not become my staple. I personally prefer the original L´eau d´Issey (parfum is even more sublime), which is still floral but I find that it has more "personality" and lasts longer.
If you like a more feminine, playful fragance with less power of fixation than the original IM L´eau, then you will love this.

I decided to try this product as my usual eye product had finished and I can only find it easily abroad. Having very sensitive eyes, my main concern with eye products is that they will not cause me allergy. This was not the case. The eye concentrate from Clarins is a medium texture cream-gel that gets absorved quickly. It is fresh and despise you can feel the cooling and tingly effect on the skin, it is not itchy to the eyes. It is not very rich (as some creams), but again a bit more textured than some gels and it is not "sticky" on the fine eye skin area.
Concealer goes and stays well on top of this product, so overal I am quite happy and I consider it a good swatch for my usual cream.
About the packaging, the pump works fine for me so far and I appreciate it as the product stays pure till the end.

 GUERLAIN Terracotta Blush - Sun Shimmer Highlighter 15ml
GUERLAIN Terracotta Blush - Sun Shimmer Highlighter 15ml
Glow from within with the Guerlain Terracotta Blush, a sun shimmer highlighter that perfectly lifts the complexion. Packed with pigment and shimmer, these fluid blushers are the perfect way to enhance a summer tan with multidimensional colour. The mother of pearl concentrate instantly illuminates the cheekbones for some serious sensuality, while the flushing hues create a natural and fresh-looking complexion. For blondes, there is pink, the colour that naturally comes to their cheeks; while brunettes need coral to echo the spicy shades of their tan. Simply apply a small amount to the back of the hand and then dab and blend into the cheeks and along the cheekbones for a wonderfully polished finish.

This fluid blusher really lifts the complexion. It gives a healthy, sun-kissed glow when applied in the cheeks bones (and optionally on the tip of the nose, top of forehead and chin).
Just be careful to use only a tinsy bit, the smallest of drops that you can dispense on your hand or finger, as it has a lot of pigment and an incredible stay, so you better use very little. I actually used too much product the first time myself, which was a waste and it also made my face look like a tomato!
If you just add a tiny drop on both cheeks and blend it properly , it does what it says.
I am blonde, so I have the pink version, but I guess that both shades do the same, adapting to each type of skin/natural colours.
Colour seems slightly strong for my skin, but again, it is all in the blending. It does provide a beatiful glow that lasts almost all day until you remove the make-up.
A bit expensive, but with the right amount used each time and considering that no retouches are needed, it should last long and it is an effective beauty weapon to have on your make-up case.
By the way, the service here at Escentual was so effective and quick that I just had to mention it in my review!
