Okay, weird title yes? But isn’t it something that we notice about people right away? How they smell? Whether  it’s bad or good, it’s not easily ignored. And while I could go into how I’m currently using a Powder-scented deodorant or Neutrogena T-Gel for my hair (it smells of menthol…which I find oddly comforting!) that would complicate the actual subject of this post. My favorite and most frequently used perfumes.

It's like a friggin...Pangaea of color.    Let’s get back into the swing of things, shall we? My life’s been taking all sorts of topsy turvy turns lately, but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped spending COPIOUS amounts of money on that goo we all love to slap on our face. One such goo…kind of, is Milani’s infamous Paint palette. Released for Spring 2012, it promised all sorts of highly pigmented, neon-bright wonders. Now…did it deliver?

Another day, another lipstick! (TBH, i’ve wanted to do a lipstick overview post(s) for a while. But I keep buying new ones! One day, I promise!) This is Topshop’s very lemminged after Brighton Rock. Not being a huge pink lipstick girl in the past, I wasn’t sure how i’d feel about it. But I WANTED it soooooo badly! I bit the bullet (not literally!) and here’s what it…brought me.

Topshop is (from what I gather) the UK equivalent of Forever21 in its relatively low cost (reaaaaaaaaally relatively) and frequent designer “inspired” pieces. They also have their own makeup line, which i’ve been wanting to try out forever. I had a 10% off coupon and they were having some sort of free shipping offer for Memorial Day, so I mini hauled. Here’s the first of the three I purchased, Infrared.

MAC Impassioned Lipstick $14.50USD I don’t think I ever would have purchased this lipstick if it weren’t for Lilit of Makeup and Macaroons. She’s given Impassioned so much love that it’s contagious! Until recently, I didn’t particularly care for pink lipsticks. But lately, my collection of them has been growing. This was the first of the latest of my bright pink purchases.

Tipsy, tipsy, tipsy! I’ve been hearing a lot about this blush ever since I started my makeup journey. However, I have had almost nothing but bad experiences with Tarte Products and every time I swatched this in-store I was disappointed (yes!) at the pigmentation. So I put off buying it. Over, and over and over. But finally! I couldn’t take it anymore. I could always return it if it was a disaster right?
