Chapstick Slurpee Flavors are Likely J.D. and Veronica Approved

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Chapstick Slurpee

I’m positive a Chapstick Slurpee in Grape or Blue Raspberry would have been a better way to woe Veronica than that big old Cherry Slurpee Big Gulp you purchased for her J.D. Why, I bet if you purchased her a Chapstick flavored like a Slurpee instead of the actual drink you guys would still be together. Even Heather would approve of these new Chapstick Slurpee flavors because she totally looks like a girl that can appreciate a good Chapstick flavor.

The movie Heathers gave birth to my love of matching colors, mean girls, croquet, corn nuts, and Slurpees.

Inglot Cream Concealer Review & Swatches

Inglot Cream Concealer

I picked up two shades of Inglot Cream Concealer while in St Maarten recently. I’m not sure how long the Inglot store has been there, it’s on the Dutch side of the island and I don’t recall when I was there last year noticing the store. None the less I was excited they had an Inglot store on the island and I ventured in without hesitation.

Sadly, I was disappointed. The store itself was super comfortable considering it was brutally hot out side but it was also small and only had one employee who was unable to help me because she was applying makeup on someone else. Aside from myself, the girl getting her makeup done, and the makeup artist the store was quiet and I was able to browse at my leisure. A majority of the items I wanted were sold out though. They had bright trays of eyeshadow but many were empty because the shades were sold out. I ended up walking out with two Cream Concealer shades and an lash curler because nothing I wanted was available. Pretty crazy right?

But, none the less, I was happy with my concealer purchases and I quickly popped them open when I got in front of a mirror to try them out.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup Review & Swatches

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Foundation

I decided to purchase Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup ($39) because I need another foundation like I need a hole in my head. You totally get it right?

But Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup was pretty tempting with the promise of eight hours of wear and available in beautiful creamy nude shades that provide a healthy glow. Plus let’s not forget the cushion packaging. I love swipe and go foundations! You can even say I’m obsessed with them. I’m one for swiping a bit of foundation down the sides of my nose and blending outward and down around my jawline. That’s my foundation application method, nothing more, nothing less. I don’t apply any on my forehead and I’m not one for applying layers and layers of coverage as I simply don’t need it since my skin is quite clear. My method of madness when it comes to foundation is I want something to brighten up my complexion and ease my dullness. Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup seemed like exactly what I needed plus it had a hydrating formula for my drier skin.

So, I hopped on a stool and had the Estee Lauder Makeup Artist do her magic with an IQ reader. Yup! Estee Lauder has a new IQ reader much like the one Sephora has. If you head to your nearest Lauder counter they’ll happy sit you down and place the reader against your neck, jawline, forehead, and cheek and potentially find a perfect match for your skin tone. Considering she choose 3N1 for me which is an Ivory Beige I felt for sure their IQ system was spot on! I consider myself a a creamy beige in foundations so, Ivory Beige sounded about right. I was impressed, well, I was impressed until I wore the foundation!

The new Tempting by Sofia Vergara Perfume has launched exclusively at Perfumania this week. Sofia is on a role with her fragrance launches lately, Tempting will be her 3rd fragrance with a 4th coming on this Fall from Avon entitled So Very Sofia.

“Every woman has a sultry side – it’s one of the most enjoyable aspects of being a woman. I created this scent to help stir that emotion. Women should feel sexy and comfortable in their own skin. Being Tempting is all about being yourself and loving it,” says Sofia.

I happen to be a fan of both Sofia’s last two fragrances so, I’m excited to try both of her new ones particularly Tempting which sounds like a lovely fruit floriental !

Tempting includes notes of pineapple, mandarin blossom, passion flower, vanilla orchid, star jasmine, sandalwood, vanilla, acai berry, and caramelized musk!

I tend to like niche and indie fragrances best and celebrity fragrances are typically last on my list of fragrances to try but I have to admit Sofia’s fragrances are top on my list. I really liked her first fragrance, simply called, “Sofia”. It was unique and very un-celebrity-like in the fact it wasn’t a full on fruity floral which tends to be the norm for celebrity fragrances.

No doubt, Tempting will be added to my fragrance wish list.

It’s available now exclusively at perfumania.com.
