Lara Parker in Dark Shadows

Week of January 23rd-30th

I hope everyone had a wonderful last week of January 2011. Many of you have spent it in total snopocalypse. This most likely gave you some time to catch up on your favorite beauty and fragrance blogs! It was an uneventful week for me. I started watching Dark Shadows again; hence, my photo inspiration of fellow Tennessean, Lara Parker. My current fragrance craving of the week has been “rose” and “powdery”. What’s my deal? I must not be… Continue reading | 4 Comments

LUSH Mint Julips Lip Scrub Review

Gals that wear bright, pale, or bold lipsticks should really invest in a lip scrub. There is nothing worse than a “statement” lip or an “understatement” lip with flakes.  I waited too long before trying lip scrub products. Remember my Sara Happ review? Totally love the stuff. While at LUSH, I noticed these little lip scrubs and their little price tags. I had to give the LUSH Lip Scrub a try since I now love lip scrubs. Especially love them during the winter!

I chose LUSH Mint Julip… Continue reading | 7 Comments

Milani HD Advanced Lip Color Review – Purple Shades

Milani HD Advanced Lip Color Review

Weekly Cheap Secret:

For fall 2010, Milani has launched their new HD Advanced Lip Color. Milani HD Advanced Lip Color is a sheer 3-in-1 lip color that is “serum infused” with a rich, moisturizing feel. It’s like a super moisturizing lip treatment with a wash of color. It contains anti-oxidants and oils to treat and prevent chapped lips. Hmm…does this description and this packaging remind you another brand, a high-end brand that goes by Dior? It’s obvious that Milani HD… Continue reading | 7 Comments

Perfumeria Gal Madrid Violette Lip Balm Tin Review

Violette Lip Balm

I wanted to love this product so badly. The tin is adorable and I love the fragrance and flavor of violets and violet candies. Unfortunately, this is not what I wanted it to be. The tin is very cute in person, Art Nouveau and adorable. However, I found it very difficult to open because it lacks a pronounced “slip”. The lip balm is more of a gloss and has the texture of Vaseline. This didn’t bother me. This makes it long lasting and perfect for “marinating” lips before… Continue reading | 6 Comments

No Whining: Guerlain Divinora Lip Balm Review

I know that I am one of the few people on the planet that really loves this product. I also know that I am a fool for paying $22 for a lip balm so maybe that is one of the many reasons why people dislike this. I love this lip balm mainly for its smell. It smells like cheap wine, that’s it. That is why I dish out $22 for this stuff. I like the fermented, almost-gross fragrance. It has a nice cheap rosé odor. This makes me live my “Real… Continue reading
