Issey Miyake A Scent Eau de Toilette Spray. Photos and Review

I was sent   A Scent by Issey Miyake Eau de Toilette Spray to try out and after using it for some time I am going to share my thoughts.

It is described as a “green and feminine fragrance. A fresh signature scent, drawing inspiration from nature’s essentials: leaves, flowers, wood.”

  • Top Notes: Verbena
  • Heart Notes: Hyacinth and Jasmine
  • Base Notes: Galbanum

The bottle it comes in has a real minimalistic design and I actually like it, I like how it looks in my interior. When you’ve just used this scent for the first time, you may find it a bit too strong, at least I thought so, but after some time when it starts to reveal  the other notes, it’s actually really lovely.

I have to agree that it is a fresh and green scent which makes me  think about the floral fields blossoming. I  love everything Jasmine so it is not a surprise that I really liked this fragrance. I only wish it would stay on for a longer time.

For me personally this is a perfect scent for spring and I can’t wait to wear it next spring, although I do like wearing it now.

You can buy it over at* where they have great discounts now. 30ml – £16.50, RRP: £30.64; 50ml – £25.00, RRP: £47.49; 100ml – £33.50, RRP: £68.43; 150ml – £70.26, RRP: £87.83

Anna Sui Sui Lip Gloss in 001 Review, Photos, Swatches

I always like trying new brands and products and I have  huge list of those that I still “need” to try. So last week I’ve got my very first Anna Sui  which I have been using every single day this week.

The lip gloss I have is called Anna Sui Sui Lip Gloss in 001. It is a clear lip gloss with some shiny stars which are unlikely to come out, so don’t worry about them. But they make the gloss look cute and interesting.

The first thing that caught my attention were the roses on the packing and  the rose cap of the gloss. Plus as a huge fan of everything that smells roses,  I was delighted to find out that the gloss smells like roses, too. It reminds me of Jo Malone Red Roses which I adore.

I really love the texture and consistency of the gloss, too. I find it glossy and moisturizing, it has no shine or glitter in it, just this perfect  wet glossy finish, as if the surface of the lake (if that makes sense). I think this is a perfect product for summer. It will look super sexy with tanned skin and bronzed/turquoise makeup.

I am also impressed with the

New Giorgio Armani Gloss d’Armani Lip Gloss

If you are a fan of Giorgio Armani beauty you are gonna be happy to find out that they just released the new lip glosses called Gloss D’Armani.

The spokes-model for these glosses is Megan Fox. She looks beautiful, although I would probably use a darker shade of the gloss for the promo and less Photoshop.

But what about the gloss itself?

There will be 18 shades, yes eighteen, so every  girl can choose a shade for herself. There is a great range of colours: from pale nudes to dark plums.

These glosses are promised to have  a high-definition colour,  beautiful shine and long lasting, three-dimensional formula. These should stay for eight hours without fading and  migrating.

“The secret ingredient: the Color Bond Polymer, already found at the heart of Rouge d’Armani, has the ability to form a supple mesh that traps pigments and pearlescent particles. Thanks to its translucent formula base, the texture gives full expression to color.” Among
