Chloe Love Story Perfume Review

Chloe Love Story

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Throughout the years, there have been Chloé perfumes I’ve enjoyed wearing (like the powdery Love, Chloé). I’ve thought that the brand has done a good job of matching fragrances to their image. This French fashion house has been around for ages and now leans more “rich, young California socialite” than it used to. Their more recent fragrances seem to reflect this but I feel like Love Story really strayed from what I think of Chloé as a fashion house… Continue reading

Elizabeth & James Nirvana Bourbon EDP Perfume Review

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon

Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

When the fashion label Elizabeth & James launched Nirvana Bourbon and Nirvana Rose, I knew that Nirvana Bourbon would be a hit for them.

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium EDP Perfume Review

YSL Black Opium

Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

It feels so cliché to be another perfume blogger that complains about a flanker of a classic perfume that’s geared to young’uns, but I can’t help it. I went in with an open mind when I sampled Black Opium. I *knew* it wouldn’t resemble the original Opium in any shape way or form. I had a feeling it’d be another sweet fragrance with a patchouli base – the mainstream “noir” recipe. Keep in mind, I love Mugler Angel

The Lipstick League – week of 2.13.17

Question of the Week: Name a popular, well-loved beauty product that you have yet to try (and tell us why you haven’t tried it).

EauMG’s Answer: I really should be ashamed of myself but I don’t own any of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes. I have tried them in store and liked them, but I never bought them. I feel like I have the neutrals base covered. As far as never ever trying, I have
