L’Oreal Melon Dollar Baby Blush Hints At Watermelon Collection for Summer 2021

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

L’Oreal Melon Dollar Baby Blush is a new shade in the Blush Of Paradise Collection that popped up on Amazon UK a few days ago (Thanks Anna for the info!). You might recall L’Oreal Summer 2018 brought us the Paradise Fruit Scented Makeup Collection which features a few Paradise Enchanted Scented Blushes. It looks like they might be cooking up a new watermelon themed collection or an extension to the Paradise Enchanted Collection with these new shades.

If the photos anything to go buy it looks like there’s two bronzers or maybe a bronzer and another blush in this launch but the item that caught my eyes was the Melon Dollar Baby Blush. It’s a pretty shimmering light rose from the promo images. Sadly, it does look pretty sheer. Maybe it’ll work better as a highlighter over your favorite blush for a bit of radiance. As for scent, it’s not watermelon! The ingredients have some coconut in it which might give it a fragrance but I don’t think this one will smell like watermelon sadly!

As of now no further information is available about L’Oreal Melon Dollar Baby Blush but as we get nearer to Summer launches hopefully we’ll get more information and if it’ll get a US launch. Worst case scenario we can probably stalk it on lookfantastic.com!

I think Milani has successful bright back the fruit theme for Summer. I see a lot of brands embracing it and I’m not mad about it. I think it’s a cute trend and I’m totally loving all over it.

How about you?

Pink Sugar Creamy Sunshine and Pink Sugar Berry Eau De Toilette Launch for Summer 2021

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

Wakey, wakey my juvenile friends today Pink Sugar Creamy Sunshine and Pink Sugar Berry Eau De Toilette launch for Summer 2021! Who’s feeling like a teenager with this launch? It’s been seven hundred hours and 150 days since our friends at Aquolina released a new fragrance! Pink Flower was launched in 2015 but after that nothing here in the US. But for Summer 2021 we get not one but two new Pink Sugar scents! Creamy Sunshine and Berry!

Do I need them? My inner teenager girl says yes but logical adult side says no….! It’s a tough call considering my inner child rules over the adult but it helps that I’m not a huge Pink Sugar addict like some people are. I’m curious what these smell like though!

Pink Sugar Creamy Sunshine $60
Creamy Sunshine has a base of the original cotton candy dreams of Pink Sugar but they add notes of coconut milk, bergamot, orange and green mandarin, vanilla, caramel, monoi, sandalwood, tiare, ylang-ylang, gardenia, and tiare. That’s a lot of notes…!

Pink Sugar Berry Blast $60
A berry blast enhances the original Pink Sugar give the scent a sweet and fruity vibe with notes of blueberries, blackberries, orange, bergamot, cherry, wild strawberries, vanilla, caramel, tonka, and cedarwood!

Both Pink Sugar Creamy Sunshine and Pink Sugar Berry Eau De Toilette are available now at Macy’s.

What do you think of these two new scents?

Worth a try?

I Slept Until 8AM, I’m Procrastinating Like a Boss, and Is Now A Time for Luxury Beauty Launches?

I got my second COVID vaccine yesterday and it wiped me out a bit. I went to bed at 9PM and got up at 8AM. Very unlike me! I’m typically up at 4:45am daily but I just couldn’t get out of bed this morning. I have bad aches and pains all over my body and with a nice little headache on the side. I’m procrastinating a bit at the moment by being on TikTok and chatting with my bestie. I’m about to dive into my work day now but I’m doing it from bed.

How are you today? Hanging in there?

By the way, where’s all the new beauty? You’d think we’d be overwhelmed with Summer 2021 Collections by now! It’s been slow going on that front. Christian Louboutin is bracing to launch new palettes and I admit I rolled my eyes. Now doesn’t seem the time for luxury beauty. I mean, there’s so much of it on sale daily (Never in my life would I have thought to see some luxury fragrance houses discounted so heavily but here we are)! I’m convinced Tom Ford Beauty is doing horribly…! But here’s Christian Louboutin with a new makeup collection. I think we’ve all been waiting for that drop to happen as we’ve been tested with lipsticks, glosses, and polish for long enough right? But now feels like it isn’t a good time for it!

It is what it is. Someone out there is eager for it I’m sure.

The celeb beauty brands are going to keep rolling in this year as well….!

Right now, I think we all get a bit more excited about skincare than we do color cosmetics but getting my second shot yesterday made me realize that we’re all getting ready to get back to real life again. If you haven’t embraced makeup in the last year and a half you will be soon as you prepare to get back to work and a more normal routine. Maybe these launches are a good thing?

I’m still a little skeptical but let’s see how it goes!

Is there room for luxury beauty in a post-pandemic beauty world?
