I wanted to like Bombshell. I did. However it seems to have missed the mark on this one. To me, this frgrance was way too floral and strong, almost like a cologne. It reminds me of a cheap perfume. I didn't feel like a bombshell when wearing it. It just made me cringe.
Lip Liners -Unlisted Brand - Real Colors - Hydra Lips Waterproof Gel Lip Liner

I am reviewing the color Pin Up Pink. It is a lovely lavender pink color and it stays on pretty well for a cheaper lip liner. I love the color as it is bright and feminine. The packaging is a 3, but what can you expect from a lipliner? That isn't me being cruel, as it is nice for lip liner. I do think a twist up liner would have been more user friendly. Over all, I can't complain and I will buy this brand again!
Lipstick -Lancome - Color Fever Shine - All Colors

Since I'm a new member I couldn't type exactly what color I wanted to review, but that's alright! I am reviewing the Lancome Color Fever Gloss in Mercury Rising. Usually I steer clear of expensive brands for fear that they are no better than drugstore brands, but this gloss was so luxurious that I couldn't resist! The color is beautiful alone or over a red lipstick. It's shiny and shimmery. Itt isn't sticky. It makes me feel like a vampy goddess when I wear it. It is the perfect blood red, and as my user name suggests, I love a good red lipstick or gloss. The price is a little bit expensive, but it lasts a long time since you don't have to use much of it. It has a lovely floral scent. The packaging is simple, yet elegant, as with mostt Lancome products. Perfect for when you want to let your fierce side out to play!
Lip Gloss -Hard Candy - Tinted Lip Balm - Vampire Bite

This lip balm is good in several ways. The color is a pretty coral pink, and it glides on like a dream. It has a light, sweet smell and leaves a glowy, face brightening tint. The design on the tube is cute and fierce. It leaves my lips saturated and isn't sticky. I do wish the color was a bit more apparent, but other than that, I have no complaints.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Sexy Little Things Noir

Noir is a sexy, fresh fragrance that is sweet and flirty. It reminds me of a lacy dress and all things feminine. It is fairly long lasting and not too expensive. It works well for date night and girls' night out.
Lipstick -Revlon - Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm - Gothic
BloodyKisses 11/22/2012 12:06:00 PM
While I am very interested in long lasting lip products, this stain in my opinion didn't stand up to the challenge. I do love the color and the balm that comes with it, but the stain barely lasted an hour when I used it. I will search elsewhere for my lip stain needs.
La Vie Est Belle. Life is beautiful. What a simplistic, yet pretty name for a perfume. And the name fits well. This perfume is sweet, feminine, and elegant. It's not too heady or overpowering as I've noted some "classical" perfumes tend to be. This perfume is perfect for a black tie affair or any other special occasion. The price is a little steep, but worth it if you have the money to spend on it. The botttle has a simplistic elegance, and the gray ribbon complements the amber color of the liquid.
I love this color. I was looking for a pretty rose gold color for my nail polish, and came across this in my local Sally's. This polish stays true to color and is slow to chip when applied with a base and top coat. One coat gives sparkly color, and two makes the color deeper. It is fairly quick drying and doesn't cake like some brands.
Masks -Yes To Carrots - Yes To Tomatoes - Skin Clearing Facial Mask
BloodyKisses 11/21/2012 2:41:00 PM
I'll admit, when I first read the name "Yes to Tomatoes" I was skeptical. My first thought, silly as it was, was "Ew, I don't want to smell like a tomato!" However, rest assured, it does not smell anything like tomatoes. It has a pleasant in my opinion smell, very clean. I have oily skin and am prone to blackheads more than acne, so I use a lot of scrubs and face masks in attempt to draw out oil and dirt. With one use, my mother in law complemented on how soft and glowy my skin looked. It leaves my skin soft, unlike some face masks that dry skin out. The packaging is nothing special, but what does one expect? It's face cream. It is a little expensive for a drug store brand, however overall it's not bad, around $15. While I intend to buy more in the future, it will most likely be only until I can find a face mask a little more powerful. This is nothing against the product, I simply have more problematic skin than most.
Midnight Rose has become one of my signature fragraces. It's sweet, floral, and spicy, however not so sweet as to feel childish, and not too floral s to feel outdated or overused. It's a little dark, yet insinuates a feminine and playful side. It's perfect for night time occasions. I love the varying shades of purple found on the bottle as well.
Sensuous Nude is one of those perfumes that has an understated elegance without being underwhelming. It sends you to a simpler time where you tearn to shed the restrictive clothing and slip into something more comfortable, be it a cashmere sweater or a flowing sun dress, and beckons to you to forgo the mask of makeup and show your au natural beauty. It fits like a second skin, and is reminiscent of a warm summer day when you can lounge around in the sun without a care in the world. Once I tried it I immediately felt comfortable with who I am, which may seem a bold statement. It's something best worn for a casual date or for everyday wear. The price is not too extravagant, around $50. The bottle is understated, but lovely. Anything more would have clashe with the perfume itself.
The first thing I noticed about Gucci Guilty when it was first advertised was the name and the captivating picture. "Guilty" just struck a sensual chord in me right off the bat. So I opened the "scratch and sniff" tab in the magazine and was immediately taken with it. Gucci Guilty Intense takes the things that are loved about the original and makes them better, longerlasting, and darker. It has a lovely musky scent, but unlike so many others I've tried, this one doesn't have the over powering feeling that usally accompanies such a perfume. It may come on a little strong for some at first, but the dry down is to die for. It has spicy notes and a wonderfully warm powdered scent that is enticing rather than girly. It seemed to fit my natural scent perfectly, and I felt sexy all day long. It makes you want to put on your best heels, best dress, red lipstick, and sunshades and walk down the sidewalk like the glamourous vixen you are. The packaging seems to have spared no expense, as the bottle is just as beautiful as the perfume. This perfume is a little more pricey than others, but not as expensive as others I have seen, and it is well worth it. It's seduction in a bottle. If you have the money, I definitely advise buying this!
