Favorite Suncreens for the Body – 2017 Edition

Pola Negri

I posted my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face. I wear sunscreen every day. Saying that, I don’t wear sunscreen on my body daily because most of the year, my body is not exposed. I mostly wear sunscreens for the body in the summer or if I travel to a warmer climate. I do try to wear sunscreen on my hands every day. So, my needs and requirements are different for a body sunscreen than a daily face sunscreen.

Le Jardin Retrouve Citron Boboli Perfume Review

Le Jardin Retrouve Citron Boboli

 

Le Jardin Retrouvé Citron Boboli (once known as Citron Poivré) is the sort of refreshing citrus that I’m craving on this hot, muggy city days. It’s inspired by the Palazzo Pitti’s Baboli Gardens in Florence. When you’re sweating it out in the subway terminal like a sauna from your nightmares, the streets smell like urine and garbage and every piece of grime sticks to your sticky body, I want something that smells crisp, refreshing and well, transports me to some place like the Baboli… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Alla Nazimova

A lot of this had to do with gothness but also realizing that people that embraced their skintone always looked younger (and were happier) than those that didn’t… Continue reading | 10 Comments

Lancome La Vie Est Belle Perfume Review

Lancome La Vie est Belle

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I’m going to be honest, I hated Lancôme La Vie est Belle before ever trying it. Even though I try not to be, I can be extremely shallow and judgey. Everything about the marketing of La Vie est Belle gets on my nerves. The commercial with Julia Roberts may be one of the corniest perfume commercials of my adult life¹. This is slightly entertaining as I don’t expect Citizen Kane from a perfume commercial, but what really gets… Continue reading | 6 Comments

The Lipstick League – week of 6.12.17

Question of the Week: What was your last beauty-related impulse purchase and how did it work out for you?

EauMG’s Answer: So, I bought two Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Glosses that were 50%. ABL makes my favorite glosses, so I was really happy with my purchase. I bought “Purple Rain” which is a full-coverage metallic purple that makes me gasp and “Runway Red”,  a glimmering disco red.
