Clarins Daily Energizer Lovely Lip Balm

Remember when Clarins used to have the best limited edition seasonal collections ever? I feel like lately Clarins gets more air time in Europe than the US. Clarins is one of those brand’s that gets overlooked sometimes and a lot of people don’t realize they have some fantastic color cosmetics like their amazing lipstick and gorgeous face powders.

I used to love their seasonal collections but lately it feels like many of those releases are released abroad but not within the US.

Sadness!

Sniff!

Clarins Daily Energizer Lovely Lip Balm ($20) is a new, limited edition sheer lip balm. Or as they call it a “do-it-all energizer”. People, if this stuff actually energized me I’d be buying it by the case!

Perfect Summer Fragrance Layering with Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine And Vanille Insensee Layering Duo

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

Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine And Vanille Insensee Layering Duo

Ah the fine art of fragrance layering with Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine And Vanille Insensée Layering Duo ($35).

Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Purchasing the Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine And Vanille Insensée Layering Duo is an extremely bad move for your wallet. Once you try it you’ll find yourself wanting to purchase full sizes of both fragrances included in this set.

Soon after that you’ll find yourself exploring more of the Atelier Fragrance Collection. And before you know it you’ll be the proud broke owner of several large bottles of Atelier Cologne.

It’s a long, tricky path to destruction.

Apparently everyone and their mom in Hollywood slathers on La Mer like it cost ninety nine scents. J-Lo swears by it and I can’t help but think to myself if I looked as good as her in that dubsmash video she did I’d be bathing in La Mer because she has incredible skin and looks so much younger than 46!

Whoa.

Is, La Mer all hype or a hit for you?

My answer might surprise you!

Do You Tan Easily?

Warm weather is here, kids which means plenty of fun in the sun! I’m a bit of the vampire as I tend to avoid the sun like the plague. Why? Because I tan really, really easily.

I don’t really like how my skin looks when it is tanned as it tends to look dull and uneven. Some people embrace the bronze look easily and flawlessly like my sister who’s a sun goodness but not me! I make sure I slather myself in SPF but that doesn’t always prevent my skin from getting darker.

Are you a sun goddess?

Do you tan easily and try to avoid the sun?

Or do you embrace it?

Do share!
