Illamasqua Raindrops Nail Varnish. Please note that I said “obsessing over”, not “obsessed with”. Why does this legendary nail polish, which looks so gorgeous in so many nail blogger swatches, look so plain on my nails? It looked so sparkly on the Sephora website, dammit!
Sweet Anthem Perfumes Joan. Joan was one of the best perfumes that I tried at the L.A. FRAGments event last month. I love the bite of the tomato leaf juxtaposed with the thick sweetness of the beeswax. This perfume lasts all damn day, and the prices are more than fair- $8.50 for a solid perfume, $28 for 10 ml of the liquid formulation.
Bust Magazine. About a year ago, I decided to stop buying any magazine that made me feel like I had just spent $4.99 to have my self-esteem pummeled. The end result is that Bust is now the only “women’s interest” magazine I buy. This month’s issue features the crazy-talented Janelle Monae and a spread on pizza-themed fashion. Somehow I only got an 8/10 on the “How well do you know Beyonce?” quiz.
Robert Piguet Chai. I was in New York for approximately one hour last week, and you better believe I spent that hour at Bergdorf’s. While other brands politely and not-so-politely declined my requests for samples, the Robert Piguet rep was handing out samples of Chai and Blossom to anyone who walked by. Chai smells like an awfully diluted cup of white tea with honey. It won’t be replacing my beloved Bath and Body Works White Tea & Ginger any time soon, but it’s fine for a hot summer day.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Super NSFW. If someone does not stop me I am going to buy literally every Lip Tar, which is an actual problem because there are 44 of them. This one is a very pretty, totally SFW ruby color.
