What’s Your Signature Fragrance? #BuryMeMondays

signature fragrance title

I don’t really have a signature fragrance. I tend to wear one perfume one day and a different one another day with moments of nothing in sprinkled throughout. Sometimes I layer fragrances but I haven’t put together anything that’s amazing. I do know what I like though.

I tend to gravitate toward fruity-florals so Marc Jacobs Honey and Marc Jacobs Dot are right up my alley. I’m big on Gucci Guilty and Coach Love as well.

If I were to branch out and try something not as fruity-floral I’d try Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black. I love the Nirvana White but that’s what I’d normally go for. Nirvana Black has a bit more gravity to it. It might be too much for the coming Spring season but who knows when it will show up since we’re still thawing out.

For Beginners and Experts Alike: L’Oreal Makeup Genius

If you love makeup you’ve experienced the hope of something working for you only to find out it’s nothing like you thought. If you’re a makeup novice you may grapple with the anxiety of picking something that isn’t going to work for you. No matter the camp you fall in, as a consumer, you have to take a chance, hope for the best, and worst case scenario return it if it doesn’t work. Well L’Oreal is attempting to take some of that guesswork out with their new makeup testing app Makeup Genius.

What Was Your First Foundation? #BuryMeMondays

Title

My first foundation was a Cover Girl one in Soft Sable. I have no idea how good or how bad it looked but I remember using it, eventually hitting pan and purchasing it again. Not long after that I bought a pink Caboodles organizer and my dad let me order things from an Avon rep he knew. That foundation got the ball rolling for me when it came to makeup. I probably looked like a fool but there aren’t any pictures so I’ll pretend I was cute. ;-) Continue reading What Was Your First Foundation? #BuryMeMondays

Sephora Or Ulta? #BuryMeMondays

Sephora or Ulta #BuryMeMondaysWhile there are countless websites and stores that sell beauty products, Sephora and Ulta are by far the most popular to me. Sephora has mid-level and high end brands like Dior, NARS, and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Ulta has mid-level brands like Urban Decay and LORAC  and drugstore brands like NYX, Maybelline, and Cover Girl.

There’s a little bit of brand overlap but enough differences for someone to have a preference. So which do you love more and why? Is it Sephora or Ulta? If you’ve purchased anything lately from either store tag me on Instagram and use the hashtag #BuryMeMondays.
