8 Apr

Such cute packaging!

And I loved this scent.  It is so perfect for spring and summer.  It smells like cherries and sweet and lovely.  LOVE.

Downside – this did NOT last on me AT ALL.  I couldn’t smell it within an hour.  Such a bummer.

I am hoping to find something similar with better staying power.

Here is what Harvey Prince says about the fragrance:

Reawaken the young, romantic you.

The blooming of the Cherry Blossom in Japan signifies the beginning of spring: new beginnings, a new season, and a new day. It’s time to find your own new beginning with Cherie Blossom.

A handsome French man whispers “ma chérie” to his beloved. Her lips are a delicate red, and she smells of sweet cherries. She knows the power of her beauty. She is flawless. She is ageless. Notes of pink grapefruit dance down her neck–the scent of eternal youth. She is his dream.

Cherie Blossom is the epitome of both rebirth in Japan and the power of a classic French seductress. Sweet, soft hints of Somet Sakura mingle with pink grapefruit and vanilla. A cool musk adds a touch of sophistication. Together, these fragrant notes play a song no man can resist. The woman who dares to wear Cherie Blossom feels timeless, and in truth, we look the way we feel.

Notes: Somei Sakura (Cherry Blossom), Pink Grapefruit, Cool Musk, Vanilla 
Style:  Delicate. Young. Passionate.

Lips – Top Picks

10 Sep

Not going to lie but I am kind of a lipstick noob.   I didn’t really wear it until this year (aside from a bad stint in high school when I though dark / black lips were cute on me.)

After experimenting, reading reviews, spending a bunch of cash.  I have decided these are my favorites:

LUSH – Lipstick $18.95: Highly pigmented, cute colors and they go out of the way to help you find your perfect shade at the Lush Store. It also has jojoba oil and rose wax to help moisturize your lips.

Stila – Stay All Day lipstick $22: I received a sample of this in my August Birchbox and I just love it.  Has staying power and feels weightless.  The red shade (Beso) I have is perfect!

Image

MAC- Lipstick $15: A cult classic for a reason.  They have so many shades, so you will certainly find yours.  The staying power isn’t as good as the two previous liquid lipsticks but I still love it.  (especially their reds and pinks).

NYX Matte Lipstick $6:  My go-to drugstore lipstick.  I love the matte finish and $6 is freaking cheap.
