Amouage Blossom Love Perfume Review

Amouage Blossom Love

There was a discussion on Twitter, which I now can’t find, where people shared their experience with disappointing foods. To my surprise, Turkish Delight kept being mentioned. Many Americans and Brits shared that they were so excited to sink their teeth into a Turksh Delight after its hype in “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” but were left with disappointment. Since this was such a subjective conversation, I just lurked but I absolutely do not agree. First of all, I firmly stand by what… Continue reading | 4 Comments

EauMG’s September 2018 Empties

Yankees game 2018

I can’t believe it but I went through the month without buying any beauty-related products. Can you believe it? Because I barely can. I was faced with many temptations, but I stayed strong. I have so much back-stock right now. Plus, the holidays are coming up and I remember last  year that every item I wanted went on sale in November.

The Lipstick League – week of 9.24.18

Question of the Week: Drugstore vs prestige cosmetics – which is better?

EauMG’s Answer: I don’t think it is an either/or sort of thing! Good (and bad) products exist at all price points. These days drugstore products have really stepped up their game (you can see many examples of this even during this week’s Lipstick League). I have noticed that these days I use a lot of e.l.f. products. I feel like they do the

MCDI Peche Cardinal Perfume Review

MDCI Peche Cardinal

Last year, I was going through a big peach moment. Never before had I cared for the note, but suddenly I wanted everything peach. I bought peach shower gels, lotions, candles and even perfumes. Somehow in this peach phase, I totally forgot about MDCI Perfumes Pèchè Cardinal which was a real shame because it was exactly what I wanted.

Peche Cardinal is a lactonic peach. The opening peach schnapps and toasted coconut. This is accented by juicy, ripe purple berries and crushed fig leaves… Continue reading | 2 Comments
