Universal Voodoo Perfume Oils Are An Absolute Muse Have, I Mean Must Have!

Universal Voodoo Perfume Oil

I happen to be a massive Universal Voodoo fan girl and I recently discovered they have an Etsy store and are now doing Perfume Oils. Dream. Come. True. Universal Voodoo Perfume Oils are something I’ve wanted in my life since discovering this incredible indie brand at least ten years ago. At the time I discovered it, it was called Alternative Breeding and it was all about wax melts and candles. As per the name, these are worthy of your possession and an absolutely muse have, must have, whatever, you get it 🙂

Tod, the creator, of these intricate, unique blends has always concentrated solely on wax. But I’ve always felt that these blends are so, so unique that they deserved to be showcased in something other than wax. Anyway, I don’t when but Tod has in fact launched an entire range of perfume oils. It could be a year or could be months or it could be yesterday but I didn’t realize that until recently. You see, I’ve been avoiding Tod’s website for a while now because I stockpile his wax tarts and I promised myself I wouldn’t buy more until I used what I already had. If you haven’t tried his tart’s you seriously have not lived. They are amazing! Simply incredible. There is truly nothing like them in the indie world. And now that he’s doing perfume oils? Well, there’s nothing like those either.

Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint for Summer 2016

Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint

Although Fall and Holiday 2016 are the words on everyone’s lips at the moment, there still, is in fact, more of Summer fun to have. And Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint might just be the order of business for lightweight coverage during the hot, humid weather.

I’m finding Milk Makeup is all about keeping the minimalist in mind and this new tinted foundation is all about minimal! This new Sunshine Skin Tint is a weightless liquid foundation that hydrates skin and provides a light, tinted, natural coverage. It also contains SPF 35 and an infusion of avocado, mandarin, grapeseed, and olive oils. Sounds like they added in some of their Sunshine Oil to the mix! It comes in a rollerball click pen so, you can smooth it on, blend it out, and get out the door in a hurry. No brushes required!

How you feeling about Milk Makeup?

I tried a lot of it and some products are hits where as others are misses!

Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint is available now at Sephora.com.

Dermablend Blurring Mousse Camo Foundation

Ok, show of hands, who’s a Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Concealer fan? If you are you’ll be happy to hear about Dermablend Blurring Mousse Camo Foundation! I’ve actually hauled out Smooth Liquid Camo and have been using it the past month. You already know I’m a die hard Em The Great Cover Up Concealer fan girl but I decided to switch things up a little. Reason? My other concealers (in my massive stash of concealers) aren’t getting enough love. I made a pact with myself to start using them!

Anyway, if you haven’t tried Smooth Liquid Camo Concealer, do it. It’s good! Creamy, hydrating, easy to blend, and excellent coverage! Anyway, I’m babbling! The real start of this post is the new Dermablend Blurring Mousse Camo Foundation, which, I hope has the same great formula as the Camo Concealer since they share the same name.

Katy Perry Mad Love Perfume Review

This was provided to me by a brand for review and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post but all opinions are my own.

Katy Perry Mad Love

I’m delighted to share with you a review of the new Katy Perry Mad Love Perfume. So, why am I so excited about Mad Love? I shouldn’t be considering I have such a passionate love/hate relationship with celebrity fragrances. Some I love, most I hate.

In 2014, Katy added a little fragrance to her growing empire of perfumes called Mad Potion and I have to admit to easily and quickly falling in love with it. The funky bottle, the gorgeous gourmand vanilla fragrance, the ability to layer it with other fragrances, it was just an instant hit for me.

I admit I was a little skeptical about the launch of the new Mad Love Fragrance. Hey, I did in fact love the original but I had doubts about a follow up because typically sequels aren’t as good as the original am I right? Also, I find that when brand’s launch a new fragrance under the same namesake it typically means they smell almost identical to the original fragrance with minor note variations. For example, take the Armani Rose Si, it smells pretty much like the original Armani Si in my opinion. I had worries that Mad Love would just be a variation of Mad Potion.

Turns out I had very little to worry about. Mad Love is absolutely nothing like the original Mad Potion! But there was still the matter of would it be as good as the original?

Bare Minerals The Bare Neutrals Ready Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

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

Bare Minerals The Bare Neutrals Ready Palette

Another day, another Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 Palette to chat! The Bare Minerals The Bare Neutrals Ready Eyeshadow Palette ($40) is a new eight shade eyeshadow palette that launched earlier last month at Nordstrom.com (and later at Ulta.com). I saw it and I said to myself, “You don’t need it!” But I’m weak and I ended up purchasing it.

Oh woe is me!

I just have such great success with the Ready 8.0 Palettes I felt I was missing out if I didn’t add this one to my collection as well. I have to admit, although great quality, you probably don’t need the Bare Neutrals simply because many of the shades are pretty easy to dupe across the board especially if you have ALL of the other Ready Palettes already. Personally, I’m one of those anal people that that like having a palette that has coordinating shades and the Bare Neutrals Palette fits the bill.

Let’s take a peek!
