Hey beauties!! I just wanted to share some goodies that I received from Bloomingdale's with you all. =)
Tory Burch Love Relentlessly Eau de Parfum Spray (1oz/30ml for $68) is a new fragrance from Tory Burch. It has a warm and sensual woody scent with a hint of sweetness. This is the type of perfume that I tend to gravitate towards. (For reference, I also use Dior J'adore and Narciso Rodriguez For Her.) The perfume also comes in additional sizes, 1.7oz/50ml for $86 and 3.4oz/100ml for $115. The rollerball is 0.2oz/6ml for $28.
Notes: Pink Pepper, Pink Grapefruit, Sicilian Lemon, Sparkling Pear, Raspberry, Lychee, Rose Essential, Orris, Jasmine Sambac, Patchouli Heart, Ambertonic, Australian Sandalwood, Vetiver, Cedarwood Heart, Tonka Bean Absolute
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray ($29 for 8.5oz/250ml) is a setting spray that provides a moderate hold and adds volume, body & texture. It can also be used as a heat protectant to shield the hair when using hot styling tools.
I usually apply 2-3 spritz on damp hair, focusing on my roots and scalp area. Then, I'll brush my hair and let it air dry. (For even more volume, use a blow dryer after applying.) The thickening spray really does leave my hair looking fuller. I especially love that it doesn't (1) feel tacky, (2) cause white flakes or (3) make my hair feel crunchy. (The key is to use it sparingly. A little goes a long way!)
Ingredients: Water, Alcohol Denat., Isopropanol, Vp/Va Copolymer, Polyquaternium-11, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey, PPG-12-PEG-65 Lanolin Oil, Polysorbate 80, Sodium Chloride, Sorbic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Eugenol, Limonene, Fragrance.
Clarins Supra Volume Mascara in 01 Intense Black ($27 for 0.2oz/8ml) adds length and volume without leaving lashes looking clumpy or spidery, even with multiple coats. I also love the bristles on the wand because they separate the lashes really well. This is truly one of the best mascaras that I've tried. Hopefully, they'll release a waterproof version!
Lancome Grandiose Extreme Mascara in 01 Noir Extreme ($32 for 0.35oz/10g) adds extreme volume & length and creates a more dramatic effect. I love the fine detail that went into the packaging. It looks very fancy, but it's also very functional because the size and shape of the wand allows for precision and ease of application. The bristles are able to coat every lash from root to tip with barely any effort. Just make sure to scrape off any excess product before applying or else it can weigh down your lashes and leave them looking clumpy.
MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo ($17 for 0.1oz/3g) is a vivid blue red with a matte finish. It has a pleasant vanilla scent and does not taste like anything when worn on the lips. It also provides buildable, medium to full coverage and lasts at least 5 hours. Just make sure to prep your lips with a good lip balm before applying. Burberry's Military Red (swatches) is slightly lighter with a hint of sheen.
MAC #7 Lash ($17) adds volume and length to your natural lashes. The #7 has just the right amount of glam and can be worn during the day or for a night out. If properly cared for, these falsies can be reworn multiple times. (Tip: Clean them after every use with rubbing alcohol, reshape and then store them in the original container to keep the lashes in good condition.)
