Bath and Body Works Daydream Eau de Parfum Arrives for Spring 2020

Bath and Body Works is keeping busy for Summer! Earlier this month they launched a new perfume called Saltwater Breeze and now yet another new fragrance arrives today! Bath and Body Works Daydream Eau de Parfum is a new sweet fruity scent with notes of fresh raspberries, sparkling pear and pink lily petals. I had expressed some doubts about Saltwater Breeze as I’m not a big fan of aquatic or beach-y fragrances but sounds like Daydream will be right up my alley!

I do so love a good sweet, fruity fragrance! With Spring on the horizon this sounds like a lovely addition to my lighter fragrance library!

It’s available in 1 oz EDP for $39.50 as well in the Signature Collection in a variety of products including shower gel and body lotion!

Have you smelled Bath and Body Works Daydream yet?

Available now at Bath and Body Works.

P.S. It’s Netflix season isn’t it? We had a snow storm Saturday and the cold weather is really starting the set in here in NY even though I’m talking Spring Collections I’m still sitting here freezing my butt off. I call this Netflix season because it’s too damn cold to go out and snuggling down on the couch vegetating seems like a great idea. So, what are you watching on Netflix? I finished off Dracula while I was sick in bed and I’m eager for Sabrina S3. Anything else I should be adding to my list? Maybe I can make a little time to watch some TV before my busy time at work starts!

Happy Monday!

Revlon PhotoReady Prime Plus Perfecting + Smoothing Primer Review & Swatches

4 stars out of 5

Revlon PhotoReady Prime Plus Perfecting + Smoothing Primer is a new makeup and skincare primer that’s available in three formulas which launched with the Revlon Spring 2020 recently.

As you may already know I’m a fond fan of the original Revlon Photoready Primer and I have hopes this new line of PhotoReady Prime Plus Primers won’t replace those formulas but I have a feeling that might just happen. The new formulations address a series of not only makeup issues but also skincare ones and act to treat such issues as dryness, darkness, and blemishes. I’m honestly not a huge fan of combining skincare benefits with my makeup because I feel like that’s what my skincare routine is for. But you might like the fact that Revlon created a primer that address a few different issues as well as preps your face for makeup. They’ve included a few different ingredients in this formulas such as Lactic Acid to exfoliate and Salicylic Acid to treat blemishes. I purchased the Revlon PhotoReady Prime Plus Perfecting + Smoothing Primer formula which felt like the best pick for drier skin as it contains Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B5. The thing I am noticing about these primers is they likely won’t promote any long term skincare benefits simply because many of the beneficial ingredients are located very low on the ingredients list and much of the formulas are made up of a variety of different cones. Which isn’t a bad thing by any means but if you’re expecting say a brighten complexion after using this you likely what see such results.

The most interesting aspect of the product is the addition of a label that says it’s EWG Verified. You likely know EWG thanks to their other site called Skin Deep that delves into ingredients and breaks them down for consumers. The EWG Verified label indicates that the Revlon primer is a “clean” product.

That being said, I was still curious enough to test out the Revlon PhotoReady Prime Plus Perfecting + Smoothing Primer simply because I am a fond fan of the original Revlon Photoready Primer and wanted to see what might be replacing that formula.

Not Sure How I Feel About Hard Candy Marilyn Monroe

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Has anyone actually ever tackled a Marilyn Monroe Makeup Collection? I can’t recall one! Oh wait! I lie! MAC did a Marilyn Monroe Collection that slipped my mind! Hard Candy x Marilyn Monroe arrived at Walmart.com over the weekend and I’m not sure exactly how I feel about this one. A makeup collection inspired by Marilyn Monroe sounds absolutely divine but I’m not sure I’d have picked Hard Candy as the ones to do it.

I mean, Marilyn Monroe is old Hollywood glam right? Everything we know and love about 1950’s Hollywood probably starts with Marilyn Monroe. Actress, model, and singer she was everything and than some. The original blonde bombshell, a true pin up girl, and sex symbol of her age.

That’s why I’m not sure that some pink, rose packaging display her images is the way to go with a Marilyn Monroe Collection. Don’t get me wrong I love a lot of what Hard Candy does lately! They’ve released some highly affordable and great picks! But I’m note convinced the Marilyn Monroe Collection is something I want to throw my money at!
What do you think?

Pixi Now Available At Ulta

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Pixi is now available on Ulta’s website today and hopefully will be popping up in stores as well. I’m quite happy about this because you have a better chance scoring a deal. Target does offer items on sale from time to time but Pixi will likely qualify for 20% off at Ulta (Pixi has this discount often on their website but I’d rather score Ulta points on my purchase).

It’s nice to see them on Ulta now!

How about you?

NYX x Netflix Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Arrives Just In Time for Season 3

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Gagging over the return of the Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina on January 24t? Celebrate early with the NYX x Netflix Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Makeup Collection that arrives just in time for the Season 3 premiere.

In NYX’s first ever collaboration with Netflix the brand has put together a gorgeous Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Spellbook Palette ($35) that includes 30 gorgeous eyeshadows and three vibrant blushes. The eyeshadows feature matte, satin, metallic, or shimmer finishes and all have names inspired by the show.

Along with the Spellbook Palette they also released a limited edition selection of NYX X Netflix Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Soft Matte Lip Cream Duos ($14) that includes two full-size Soft Matte Lip Creams.

Shades:

  • Half Witch (Monte Carlo and Cabo)
  • Fright Club (Budapest and Cannes)
  • Weird Sisters (Transylvanian and Los Angeles)

Both nyxcosmetics.com and ulta.com are offering a free Sabrina Cosmetics Bag with your purchase.

I wish they’d release Sabrina in October like they did for S1 because I feel like it’s such a great Fall show not to mention I’d probably want this collection a lot more if it Halloween was on the horizon and autumn was in the air. The colors are delightfully warm and remind me of falling leaves.

Do think you’ll purchase anything from the NYX x Netflix Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Makeup Collection?

Are you a fan of the show?

NYX x Netflix Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina is available now at Ulta as well as on NYX’s website for a limited time.
