Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette 2

It’s probably to early to say this but I’m leaning towards saying that the Smashbox Softbox Eye Palette is my favorite Summer palette. I’m really loving softer more nude shades of shadow lately. I can’t quite go the bolder, crazy look for Summer anymore. Heck, I really loved aqua at one time as a primary shade for the warm weather but now I’m more about delicate shades of shimmering brown, gold, and bronze and the Softbox Eye Palette brings just that.

Photographers love shooting in natural light to create a diffused, softer look and that’s exactly what this palette does. The shades give a soft focused look that’s romantic and ethereal but still have the fun Summer vibe as well!

You NEED this palette.

Philosophy Divine Color Long-Wear Creamy Eye Color

Philosophy Divine Color Long Wear Creamy Eye Color

I used to have a severe aversion to cream eye shadows. I really love them now but needless to say I avoided them like the plague a while back ago and would you believe, total senior moment, I can’t recall why I hated them so much.

It puzzles me as I really enjoy the texture and look of a good cream shadow nowadays.

How odd.

Philosophy Divine Color Long-Wear Creamy Eye Color is a brand new color cream shadow from Philosophy. The colors are way appealing and the formula looks rather spot on too!

Let’s take a look!

Prada Infusion de Rose Fragrance

Prada Infusion de Rose Fragrance 2

Prada Infusion de Rose is the latest edition to the Infusion collection.

One of my signature notes is Rose, I absolutely adore a good rose scent so I’m quite excited to see how Prada handles it.

For their new Infusion de Rose they take soft feminine notes of fresh rose metals and mingle it with tea, honey, and crushed mint leaves.

Here are the official notes for the blend:

  • Rose from Bulgaria & Turkey Familiar yet unique, the feminine note of Rose brings a subtle
  • depth and sumptuous femininity to the fragrance.
  • Italian Mandarin The Sicilian citrus note of Mandarin adds a light, sparkling freshness.
  • Peppermint Like fresh mint leaves crushed in the hand, refreshing Peppermint brings a clean aspect to Infusion de Rose.
  • Brazilian Mate South American Mate leaf brings a smoky rich green aspect to the scent.
  • Beeswax from Laos A full, warm note of Beeswax reminiscent of honey completes the fragrance

Prada Infusion de Rose Fragrance 1

It sounds rather captivating doesn’t it? Particularly the use of mint!

I’m quite eager to try it.

Prada Infusion de Rose Fragrance launched on Friday and will be available from NeimanMarcus.com and BergdorfGoodman.com
