Tonatto Profumi Magnifico Perfume Review (& Recommendations Please)

Tonatto Magnifico

New York City is having one of those springs where it went from gloomy and mild to BAM blindingly bright 90º+. Hopefully we’ll be pleased for some spring-like days before it turns into summer. However, today has reminded me that I really need perfumes that pair well with warm weather. Since moving, my perfume collection is still predominately very Seattle-ish (AKA perfumes that always evoke autumn and go with rain). I’m seriously lacking in the “cool and refreshing” category.

EauMG’s July 2016 Favorites

Jersey Shore

 

In comparison to June 2016, July was a less busy month; it’s the height of “lazy summertime”. I started feeling better and there was no traveling. It was a lazy month but that’s what I wanted. No regrets.

Happy 4th of July!

Question of the Week: We all love our liquid lipsticks, but what are some of your favorite lighter lip products (sheer lipsticks, glosses, tints, stains, balms) for summertime?

EauMG’s Answer: For the most part, I wear full-coverage lipsticks all year long. I’m not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks because the formulas aren’t up to par with regular ‘ole bullet lipsticks (most are drying, streaky and/or sticky). I’ve never really understood sheer

HAPPY PRIDE 2016!!!

Question of the Week: Summer is here and the temperatures are rising. So tell us: what’s your current favorite product to help keep your makeup in place in warm weather?

EauMG’s Answer: I’m actually a terrible beauty blogger because I just let summer do its thing. I don’t even try to fight it. I end up just wearing tinted moisturizers and sweating it off and reapply later. My summer looks usually
