MAC Dazzle Lipstick Baby’s on Fire Review and Swatches: MAC Digi-Pops Collection Review and Swatches

Contrary to what I might believe, Digipop is not the latest boy band from Korea it’s the latest MAC Collection. Well, doh!

No seriously, doesn’t it sound like some sort of band? Ok, maybe that’s just me.

MAC Dazzle Lipstick Babys on Fire 1

MAC Digi-Pops Collection made its debut earlier this Summer exclusively at Nordstrom. During pre-booking I was super excited to play with Digi-Pops myself so I headed over to Nordies and promptly became utterly disgusted at the display. Nordstrom, baby, mama loves you but please clean up your act. I was appalled at the condition of the collection. One of the things I was really interested in exploring were the new Digi-Pops Dazzle Lipsticks and they were just so terribly gross that I couldn’t even bear to look at them never mind swatch them. The lipsticks were squashed and smushed down to the core, just really a hot mess.

Sad sigh.

Needless to say I didn’t bother pre-booking any of it because I couldn’t get a feel for the product in that condition.

Lucky enough MAC has released the Dazzle Lipsticks and they are in, thank god, way better condition than the Nordie’s ones were.

Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina Review

Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina 1

Although poisonous, Snow White was pretty much attracted to sinking her teeth into that crunchy, red apple that her wicked stepmother presented to her.  Who could blame her, girlfriend was hungry after walking around that forest all day!

Ahh apples. There’s just something terribly enchanting about a bright, shiny, apple. Speaking of enchanting apples…..Nina Ricci always charms my money right out of my pocket with her whimsical little apple shaped fragrances.

So kawaii!

Anyone sniff Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina the newest fragrance in the line?

Musings of the Day: Annick Goutal, Unique and Different!

Annick Goutal

After blogging about my favorite fragrance from Annick Goutal, Petie Cherie, a few of you had asked if I could review a few of Annick Goutal’s fragrances. Honestly, I’d love to do this since I’m a hardcore fan but before I do I was curious if you’re a fan?

Wanna Muse it with me?

Are you a fan of Annick Goutal?

Any fond favorites?

Some of my favorites include Quel Amour!, Petie Cherie, and Eau d’Hadrien. I’ve always wanted to love Gardenia Passion and I keep one on my vanity at all times but it always goes so terribly incense-y on me.

One of the things that attracts me to the brand is the uniqueness of each blend, the strong, powerful formula that lingers all day with a simple spritz, plus how special each fragrance is and how it evokes a certain feeling or memory.

I really like unique, obscure fragrances that aren’t well known, are different, or just plain unique and Annick fits that bill perfectly. It’s truly fine French fragrance at its best.

How about you?

If not Annick Goutal what sort of unique or obscure fragrances do you enjoy?

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment Review

I’d love if I had more time to head to the spa for a facial. Ideally I’d love to just sit back and relax at least twice a month but it never happens. I always feel so pressed for time and sitting back for a facial rarely makes it into my day to day schedule.

I’m lucky enough to have very good skin without any problems however dullness is something I suffer from a fair bit. My skin is very lackluster and in need of a boast most days of its life. One such boast would be a proper exfoliation as this seems to revive and kick start my skin. Dullness is fairly common for those with dry skin and my own fits right into the groove.

Taking my dullness and my lack of time for a facial into consideration I invested nearly $100 on the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment in hopes it would not only cure my dull skin but also keep me from having to rearrange my schedule for facials.
