Nuit Blanche, named after the all night arts festival in Paris (that was recreated in DC and is one of my fav things ever) is easily one of my new favorite scents. It carries the bite of the coffee, but is lifted with pink pepper and orange blossom. As a Florida girl, I have a deep-rooted addiction to anything with hints of orange blossom. I’m thrilled to have gotten my hands on both of these, but this reinterpretation of Black Opium is divine.

Strangely I did not experience a strong scent like others have noted. A nice natural smell, I was expecting a slightly different smell but that does not change anything. I did not need to hold my breath as I sprayed. I did notice there is some milky particles at the bottom of my bottle if it sits for a while so be sure to shake before spraying. This product is always sold out so I made sure to buy two bottles!

Velvet Noir is magic! There are few beauty products, especially mascaras, that really deliver what they promise and this one is a winner! My lashes appeared so much thicker, longer and blacker with the Velvet Noir than any other mascara I've used. When I wear this, I don't need to apply false lashes and I don't miss them at all. Definitely one of my favorite beauty products of the year. Good job Marc! I only wish that the tube removed more product from the brush so I wouldn't have to scrape off so much excess but that's a small price to pay.
my lips were so dry a few weeks ago & I was constantly peeling them until they bled. (Attractive I know) THIS product is a life and game changer. I've been using this lip mask for about a week now and my lips no longer have ANY dry patches or peeling whatsoever. I am not exaggerating when I say they are super soft and smooth. I am a lipstick wearer so my lips tend to get dry. Been using this every night and I no longer have dry peeling lips. A little goes a long way. Yes the tube can be hard to get the product out but just warm it up in your hands first. SO WORTH YOUR $$$. If you have issues with dry lips, thank me later!
I used this a total of two times– and the second time was just to make sure my terrible results weren’t just user error. It’s packed with heavy ingredients: glycerin, mineral oil, parabens, filler oils... My hair was not having it. I could not get a defined anything while using this product and actually just put my hair up in a bun both times out of exasperation. This formula makes my hair heavy and actually dries it out (warning: alcohol is high in the list of ingredients). Issa no from me dawg. Haaaaard pass.
The conditioner is kind of the same as the shampoo–. just okay. The slip feels good, it seemed to be moisturizing. But it didn’t feel like it was actually penetrating my hair. This one is paraben free but the second ingredient is a silicone. So it’s another pass from me.
The shampoo is okay. It doesn’t do a great job of clarifying so you might find that you have a lot of buildup between washes. The amount of slip feels good on the scalp and hair shaft. But I can’t get past the ingredients. Between the sulphates and alcohol, I know that long term it would cause damage to my hair.
