It’s been so long since I ordered from Cherry Culture which is an online shop which has a lot of brands. The products which I want to try are not always available in the shops so I thought it was best if I order it online and not wait till they were available in the shops. This time around I was interested in trying Milani products and also I was still searching for my favorite lip gloss from NYX . I got this color called Pink Gold from the Mega shine lip gloss in 2010 and I loved it. It is a perfect rose gold color for my medium skin tone. I was wearing it throughout my pregnancy but then they changed the packaging and the color was gone . I am still trying to fine a similar color in NYX but I haven’t found it yet.
Moving on, I saw a lot of good review on Milani products so I decided to get some stuffs to try.
Milani Powder Eyeshadow in Ticked Pink – Pink Gold sheen. Perfect for all over eye color.
Milani Powder Eyeshadow in Purple Shock – Purple sheen with duo chrome effect.
Milani Color Perfect Lipstick in Pink Love – Cool toned pink. Bad for my medium skin tone. I looked like a Nicki Minaj wearing that pink lipstick . Yuk.
Milani HD Advance Lip color in Sweet Grape – Lovely plum with gold sheen. It is not opaque. It give you this light sheen on your lips. Great for workouts .
NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Pink Rose – Fail. This is again not the color I was looking for. But its ok.
I tried wearing a deep plum lip liner and then applied the pink love lipstick followed by Pink Rose gloss. All I can say is “meh” .
I have wanted to show you guys my fragrance collection. I had bought these in the last year or so. I have always been a perfume/fragrance collection. I remember my earliest memories was of the Old Spice after shave splash which my dad used to use and I absolutely loved the smell. It’s fresh and uplifting . And then I remember the Brutt which my dad used and I also used them most of the time . Once upon a time I did like the Musk scent and if I remember right, I think it was called Jovin or something. Anyhoos, after I got married my hubby gave me the JLO Glow and I fell in love with the scent. It is so refreshing and I used to use them a lot. I still have a bottle of it in my collection.
Anyway, then I started collecting perfumes. I like the clean and fresh scents, not too overpowering scent like the one which my mom had and I think it was called Poison or something like that and It gave me terrible headaches . So these are some of my collection which is a year old .
Wicked Wahine – Original. I got my first bottle when I went to Maui in 2010. A lady was buying this scent in a shop and she was saying that her daughter loves this scent. So I decided to try it and see what is special about it. It’s main fragrance note is jasmine, musk and sandalwood. It is a spicy smell which I love, more earth tone. And I also got a back up of this bottle when I visited Kauai this year .
Wicked Wahine – Rose. I decided to try this one when I saw this in Kauai. It has a typical rose scent which I love.
Jennifer Aniston – I got this set in a clearance from Target during the after Christmas clearance sale . You all know about how much I love this perfume and when I saw this set just for $9, I just had to get it. The original price of the perfume was about $30 and since I broke my last bottle, I decided to get this set .
Then for my last birthday, I got a perfume collection set from Sephora and It had the following perfumes :
Dolce & Gabbana – Light blue. This does reminds me of the cologne scent with a citrus scent. I do like it.
Clean – Warm Cotton. OMG, I can just bathe in this scent. It’s exactly as it says, newly washed cotton cloth drying in the sun .
Coach – Poppy. Not a fan of it. It is a bit strong for my taste.
DKNY – Pure. It’s Ok but I don’t think I will buy this.
Jennifer Anisten – Of course it’s one of my favorites so It’s in my travel bag .
Do any of you have any favorite scent which you are obsessed with? I think most of the ladies prefer strong scents but it gives me horrible headaches? Do any of you have any favorite fresh scents? I can always try them .
I have always been a lipstick person. I remember I had a yellow color lipstick during college which will change to pink when applied on your lips. It was my favorite for many years till I started noticing other brands . For the past 2 months, I have leaned towards dark lipsticks and I don’t know why. Maybe my face looks brighter with it or maybe it just makes me happy . I am in favor of the red these days . I will do a mini review for them as well.
Revlon Super lustrous lipstick in 720 Fire & Ice – I have to say that I got this mainly because of the packaging and it was in the clearance section. This is also in the permanent line but with a different packaging. It’s a cool toned orange-red, a little bit bright for my taste and I think it will look good on a fair to medium skin tone. The formula is perfect, just glides in your lips and the staying power is good. It also stains your lips once the lipstick wears off.
Covergirl lipstick in 575 Really Red – This is also one of my clearance finds but I LOVE this lipstick. It is a warm toned orange-red which is perfect for my medium skin tone. The formula lasts for a long time and it also stain your lips which is great.
Elf mineral lipstick in Royal Red - This is a deep maroon color which looks almost brown red. The formula is good but the lasting power is not that good but it is a good color for my skin tone and I love it especially for the evening.
Revlon lipsticks in 045 Rasberry – It is a perfect berry red color and this is one of my favorites as well. The formula is so moisturizing and just glides on your lips. It also stains your lips. It is perfect everyday wear, not too bright but still gives you this berry color which brightens your face.
Rimmel Kate Lipstick in 09 – This is one of the new lipsticks by Rimmel. I have always loved Rimmel lipstick when I was in Dublin. My favorite was their Amethyst shimmer and I still have it. It is one of the moisturizing and long-lasting lipstick in a deep berry red color. It also stain your lips but not that long-lasting and it transfer as lot if you are drinking but I still love the color.
Wet n Wild lip lacquer in 925 Lustful – This is a maroon lipstick which is more of a red than a brown. It is a little bit too dark for me but perfect for going out in the evening. The formula is good and applies easily on your lips but it has no staying power. It stains your lips very lightly.
Overall, I am loving these bright lipsticks for spring. Do you have any favorite for spring? Tell me about it. Maybe I will try them as well .
Did you celebrate Mother’s day? I certainly did . It certainly feels good to know that someone appreciates you, doesn’t it? My daughter got me a craft flower bouquet from her school on Friday. I know that her teacher helped her with this project and it was so cute. And the main thing was she refused to give it to me because she liked it so much. And today morning she gave me a gift and I loved it. She gave me a Nook Simple Touch Ereader .
If you are following my blog for a long time then you certainly know that I already got Nook Color in 2011 for my Birthday and it’s still going strong and I love it. I love that I can add a SD card because if you are like me, a book lover, then you will have a lot of books in your ereader like me. Let me count, at the moment I have about 2210 books in my Nook Color . Yup and I know it’s a lot but I always add a book if I want to read it. So it kept accumulating and at the moment I still have those 2210 unread ebooks . Ok, Does this make you understand how much I love reading books . Even though the Nook Color has web browser, mail, etc, I never use them. The one major con I would say is that because of the color and lot of other stuffs in the Nook, I have to charge them everyday .
So moving on, I kept telling hubby that I am going to buy the Nook Simple Touch just for reading books. I just want that to store all my favorite books which I like to read again and again . Nook color for all the unread ebooks and Nook Simple touch for favorite ebooks which I want to read again . I told hubby I want that as our anniversary gift but I got it as a Mother’s day gift :yay: .
Thank you Baby A and Hubby for my gift which I absolutely love . I know that It will be loved.
