Fragrances that I have been loving

I have so many body sprays that I honestly thought about not buying any new perfumes but I really like having a variety.  I’m pretty big on roller balls as well because I can just throw them in my purse and they are less expensive. I believe that I mentioned before that I have almost every single Marc Jacobs sent in roller ball form and I love those.

This past month, I had decided to buy a few new full sized fragrances for the summer.  Now, the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet I have had for a while and I absolutely love this scent. No matter how much I try to change up my fragrances, I really love floral and clean smells.  I don’t like musky or overpowering scents at all.  Keeping that in mind, my next favorite is Jennifer Anniston. This has also been a favorite that I have had for a while in roller ball form.  I went ahead and bought the large bottle.  It wasn’t very expensive so I consider it a good deal.

During Sephora’s fragrance sales where they offered 3x’s the beauty points, I purchased two scents.  The first is Chloe’s Love Story.  This smells soooo good! This is definitely a classic scent for me.  It’s light, floral and slightly sweet.  I can spray it without fear of feeling that the scent will become overwhelming throughout the day.  I have worn this a lot since I purchased it.

The final scent that I purchased is Marchesa Eau de perfume.  This is a different scent for me which is what I was looking for when I purchased it.  It’s still very clean, but not necessarily floral.  When I first smelled it, I thought it smelled “soapy”, but sweet.  It’s a very unique smell.  I sprayed it in the store, then walked around for a day with it on.  The more the day went on, the more I really liked it.  It was just….different.  I have been enjoying my new fragrances a lot.  What are your signature scents?

Saturday Makeup

Today was a wonderful day.  The sun was shining and the air was warm.  This was a gigantic welcome after the ice, snow, and cold the last few weeks.  I had a few errands to run and wanted to look my best while doing so, so here was my makeup for the day.

Bobbi Brown illuminating finishing powder compact foundation in Warm Walnut 7.5.  This is a new buy for me and I have been loving it.

Missy Lynn’s eyeshadow pallet – I just received this three days ago and I have worn it everyday.I used the the light and dark purples along with the bronze highlight color.  This pallet is gorgeous and the shadows are very pigmented. I am not sure if I was expecting it to be soooo good, but it is worth more than the price (although I am happy it wasn’t to expensive.) There was really no fall out, and the colors show up as they are in the pallet.  Sometimes I have had other purple shadows and they just look dirty or black.  I can barely see the purple, but this shows up on my skin perfectly.  Has anyone else tried this yet? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Mac’s Raizin blush – a long time favorite.

Too Faced Soul Mates blushing bronzer in Carrie & Big – Now, I admit that I am a sucker for a gimmick and if it has anything to do with my favorite television couples, it’s even better!  So this bronzer joins my Gidget and Moondoggie nail polishes in my prized gimmick possessions.  Oh, the product is not to bad either. 🙂

Clump Crusher mascara – this has become a favorite as well.

Milani’s Sangria lipstick – I can’t believe I have not worn this all winter.  Milani lipsticks are my favorite from the drugstore and this color if beautiful.

Miss Dior’s Blooming Bouquet – I will be doing a post of my favorite fragrances right now.  This is one of them.  So soft and no at all overpowering.

July Favorites

There were a few things that I really enjoyed using this month.

 

1.  Glamglow Thirstymud hydrating treatment – This product is really, surprisingly great.  I’m not sure what I was expecting of it, but whenever I think of a facial treatment, I think of a thick, sticky, messy substance that  feels like mud.  This is actually just a truly lightweight product that just glides onto your skin.  It is slightly sticky, but I have been able to sleep with it on my face without fear of it messing up my sheets.  The bonus is it really makes my skin feel super soft and hydrated.  I tend to get really dry patches of skin around my nose and eyebrows and a patch here and there on my cheeks.  I have not had any issues since I started using this.  The first week that I used it, I was also using a sample of a DIOR serum which I was also enjoying (but at $145 price tag, I am to afraid to bite the bullet on that one).  After that was out, I was only using the Glamglow, so I really feel that this is a really good product for my skin.

2.  Anastasia Brow Wiz in Granite – Filling in my eyebrows is a completely new regime for me.  I have pretty thick brows, but they taper off at the ends.  Well, this really helps me get both of them to look somewhat similar without looking like I took a marker to my brows.  It can be as subtle or as strong as you want it to be.

3.  Great Lash clear mascara/brow gel –  This helps to keep my brows in place after using my brow wiz.  I had previously been using the Milani brow wax pencil, but it tends to make my brows itchy.  The Great Lash brow gel has worked wonderfully.  My brows still feel and look soft, but stay perfectly in place all day.

4.  Hourglass ambient lighting blush in diffused heat – This has pretty much been the blush I have worn all summer.  It really does give a radiant glow to the cheeks.  It just give a light color to my cheeks with a little bit of glow.  It’s not glittery or sparkly, it just has a slight shimmer that looks perfect in the sunlight.

5.  Victoria Secret’s Endless Sunset lotion and body spray – The last thing I needed this summer was more fragrances, but when V.S. had their semi-annual sale, I just had to stop in and look. Anything named summer, sunset, moonlight, etc. is going to draw my attention.  So this set was calling my name.  It smells amazing.  It’s got a slight coconut smell, but not as strong as my second favorite of the summer which is Oahu by Bath and Body Works.  Oahu can be a little stronger than I like, but Endless Sunset is perfect.  I can use both the lotion and spray without feeling like I am going run people off with the overpowering scent.

Summer is winding down, but I am really enjoying these few items this summer.  August is here, which is my birthday month, so I plan on enjoying it to the fullest. I plan to enjoy the shorts, sunshine, and beaches all month long.
