Summer Body Cream Extravaganza with Wildfox!

wildfoxI’m a bit of a penny pincher when it comes to spending on body creams because the turnover is so high! But with summer already here, Wildfox’s body cream frosting has me thinking twice 🙂 To me, its value comes from the visible change in the skin’s texture – if you apply it on one arm and use regular body lotion on the other one, the one with Wildfox shines like a star (its not glittery; it just gives the skin a really nice glow). The scent feels a bit old school but is not really dominating so it isn’t a deal-breaker.

Overall,  I’d definitely spend on this for use in the summer! Its already out of stock in Sephora (its definitely this season’s must-have 🙂 ) but if you’re quick, you’ll can find it at other mid/high end cosmetics carriers for around 55 USD. I’ve pasted some links below if you’re interested.

Until next time,

Can’t Say No to Nolita! World’s First Perfume and Lipstick Duo by Bond No.9

Screen Shot 2017-05-11 at 8.51.27 PM

 

Hello hello! Check out the world’s first ever perfume and lipstick duo – the scent is unique with a dominant tangerine undertone. Most importantly it STAYS literally for days on your clothes – its nothing like what I’ve smelled before and trust me, I’m addicted to perfumes so nothing good has ever escaped my nose.

A perfume this outstanding will put a dent on your wallet though – the Bond no9 New York Nolita Perfume and Lipstick Duo will cost you around 350 USD.

In case you don’t know already, Bond NYC is a high end perfume making company that produces scents based on neighborhoods in New York. I think this is one of those things you should save up for and buy at least once!

Until next time,

401C3D3500000578-4485816-image-a-81_1494343055366

Hi lovelies!

Yesterday I asked whether you thought this was a high end blush or a drug store brand – some of you guessed that it was luxury! Well I have good news, its a drug store brand, called Milani and is available for EIGHT DOLLARS!!!! Grab this quick, I personally prefer this over Gucci’s ladybug blush!

In case you’re looking for the order link here it is – http://www.houseofbeautyworld.com/mipobltearo0.html?cmp=googleproducts&kw=mipobltearo0&gclid=CjwKEAjwutXIBRDV7-SDvdiNsUoSJACIlTqlsEtbXhTN2vOhiZHeV9C2Q-rTvKy-csowBj0Cif-ehhoCzeLw_wcB

Louboutin does Lip Lacquer!

CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN METALINUDES LOUBILAQUE GROUP

 

So should Christian Louboutin just stick to shoes or has the company hit the mark with these lip lacquers? I think its a hit – the bottles are pure class and give me a mermaidy-sea-ish vibe. The nude tones are also a nice change from the regular color palette! These will set you back about 90 USD though 🙂 let me know if you would pick this up or give it a miss!

Vintage Vanity – Lancome Color Fan Eye Shadow Palette Review

One of my very first high end makeup kits - got me hooked from the word go!

One of my very first high end makeup kits – got me hooked from the word go!

Hi lovelies!

You may have figured I’m a fan of Lancome skincare by now! Interestingly, I was introduced to the company through its’ makeup range. I got the Lancome color fan palette for my birthday way back in 2010.

This was one of my first very first high end makeup kits so I hold it very close to my heart. Literally. I still have it 😛

It turned out to be one of those rare eyeshadow powder palettes that you could pick up 10 years from today and find it wearable! The color selection is great – it has all the shades that you need to dress  your face up or (down) at any time of the day 🙂

Th shadows have great pigmentation and and never creased. I used this without a primer and it stayed in place until I took it off even in the sweaty months of july! The look is slightly shimmery, but it is subtle enough to be worn during the daytime. The purple and filigree (top right) were my favorite – I even repurchased filigree separately for a comparatively hefty price of 20 USD three years ago! You can cake filigree on for the smokey eyed look, apply it with a thin liner brush for highlighting your inner lids/lower lash line or put one layer over your lids for work to give yourself a fresh look. If you’re feeling adventurous, put filigree on the inner lid and blend the purple in to cover your entire lid. It looks very high fashion 😉

I didn’t get to use the other four shades much. There was absolutely no quality issue, it was just that the baby pink, green, blue were too light to be distinguishable on my skin tone. They all come across whitish so I used them for brow highlighting and face contouring. The brown on the other hand wasn’t dark enough to be used for smokey eyes and just gave me a sickish look 😛 If you are fair skinned though, you don’t need to worry about it and feel free to buy this with your eyes closed!

Despite a few shortcoming, I was (and still am) a fan of this palette. Its’ great value for money (right now it is listed for 50 USD), is packaged so adorably and the velvet pouch it comes with gives it the additional oomph factor 🙂 I truly hope Lancome relaunches this with vibrant colors replacing the light tones for brown girls in the coming years!

You can order this online (its on sale almost everywhere!) for 20 USD. The only reason I hesitate repurchasing it is because it is not available on sephora or the other more reliable beauty suppliers so I am wondering if they are fake or expired! If you live in a part of the world where returns aren’t an issue though, you should definitely get this 🙂

That’s it for now lovelies!  Next week, I’ll be back with a Kiehls product review from my latest makeup hoarding session 🙂 See you then!

Lots of Love,

WBVANITY
