    I want that Nars brush!
    You would think with all the darn brushes I have I would never need to buy another one again. LOL

    I will have to try that Annick Goutal rose cream. I love a good rose product!

    Love the new blog L! Have a great New Year!

    ooh ooh i have to check out the Metrolotion! while i don’t have rosacea i do have other fun conditions and i’d love to see what this does for me. also, it’s SO sad that Oblique Rewind is discontinued – i hate when that happens!

    have a happy new year, L., and i wish all sorts of happiness for you in the coming months!

    Creme Splendide Rose Serum is my secret longing. I have gone through 5 samples of it already, and I think that I am ready for a large jar.

    Thank you for a great list!
    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year!

    Great list! How did I ever miss that Nars brush, way big and fluffy. Laguna is just amazing, an now I see what it is missing, that brush! Happy New Year!!

    METROLOTION! I completely agree. LOL. I’m a Noritate person (it’s the same active ingredient in a heavy cream so that it doesn’t make me break out. Meh)

    I’ll be in the yard doing manly yard work while you ladies discuss perfume.

    Happy New Year.

    I love those big honkin hair clips too. Have you discovered the hair bands yet? Plastic (fake tortoiseshell) with spikes that run about 2 inches long, parting your hair every half inch lengthwise. You slip this thing on, and the hair falls right into place and stays there, looking like a real “do!” Anyhoo I too am head over heels (pun intended) for Clive Christian No. 1 but discovered it last year, not this year. Holy smokes, right?! It’s about as beautiful as a floral perfume can possible be. Thank heavens for perfumes, ribbons, bows, girly stuff, and friends. Wishing you the best year of your life yet, in 2006. Love, L

    Rewind, Flowerbomb, So New York – 3 of my favorites as well!

    I think Flowerbomb, but especially the Extreme, qualify as my most guilty pleasure from this year. I don’t know why I prefer the Extreme, usually more sweetness puts me clean off a fragrance. But they both are such sweet, coquettish little things, and I’m glad you’ve found such delight in this one.
