Too Faced Boudoir Beauty Makeup Collection for Spring 2013

I am not the person who loves uber cute and girly things but Too Faced cosmetics has to be an exception, as I always enjoy their products.

Here is a preview of their Spring 2013 collection called Boudoir Beauty. I personally like the eye palette and berry lipsticks.

Boudoir Eyes Shadow Collection,  $36

I am a huge fan of these palettes and I want to have them all at some point. There are nine shades in this one, as usual. But, unfortunately only five are new: Fuzzy Handcuffs, Voulez-Vous, Garter Belt, Sugar Walls and French Tickler

The Secret To No Makeup Makeup Fresh & Flawless Face Palette,$39

You get a cards with application tips and the following products: Shimmer Veil, Crème Blush, Powder Blush, Concealer, Luminizer and Brightener. This is definitely a great palette to get.

Schick Xtreme3 Eco-Friendly Razor

That is nice to see that these days companies come up with  more eco-friendly products!

Recently Schick released their  Xtreme3 razors in a green colour, which is really pleasant to the eye, which is called  Eco-Friendly Razor.

The packaging is made out of  post-consumer paper  and the handle is made out of a post-consumer recycled plastic.

Interesting facts (according to Schick):

  • The brand is saving over 103,000 pounds of virgin plastic material and 15,500 pounds of virgin paper by using recycled materials.
  •  The recycling effort will save enough plastic each year to go up and down the Washington Monument more than 2,330 times.

In Love Candle by Daniel Sandler. Review and Photos

Remember my post about the beautiful candles that would make a great Christmas present?

I’ve actually got the In Love Candle by Daniel Sandler just in time for Christmas from Daniel himself. That was such a lovely gift!

It comes in luxury black packaging which is glossy on two sides and matte on two other sides. Inside you can see the black, white, and red DS logos.

As for the candle itself, it is made in collaboration with Jonathan Ward, and I already love his candles, so I had no doubt about the quality. And it is a great quality, the burning is very clean.

In Love is made with organic soy wax and is hand-poured into hand-blown Italian crystal glass.

I absolutely love the notes that were chosen for this candle:

Perfumes Review: Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood, Amour by Kenzo and Oh, Lola by Marc Jacobs. Perfumes Club

Perfume is definitely one of the best presents beauty wise. Almost everyone loves perfumes! So today I have three different fragrances to tell you about.

But before I start, I have to let you known that you can purchase all the mentioned fragrances  at Perfumes Club , they have a big selection of luxury makeup, skincare and perfumes with big discounts (up to 75%). You can get brands like Tom Ford, La Prairie and Sisley as well as brands like Britney Spears, Hello Kitty and Shakira.

Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood, £21.59

Boudoir would make an amazing gift for confident women, it is definitely not a fragrance for young ladies.

This perfume is sexy, provocking, powerful, sophisticated, seductive and entoxicating. This scent makes a statement! It is very long-lasting, it stays on me for hours and hours.

You could wear this at a day-time but I like it better in the evening. What to wear it with?! I am thinking a beautiful dress and a red lipstick or a tuxedo from YSL and high heels…

Boudoir was created in 1998 by Martin Gras. The story is telling us that it was created to make all men ‘turn their heads after the woman that wears it when the smell wafts past them. ‘ It is dedicated to a feminine and strong woman, with accentuated sexuality. And, yes, there is something about this fragrance that makes you feel that way!

‘The top notes are aldehydes, sweetly-fresh bergamot, hyacinth, and orange blossom.

The heart is sweet and opulent with jasmine, luscious rose, narcissus, carnation, orris root, cardamom and coriander.

The base brings patchouli, warm and milky sandal wood, tobacco leaves, cinnamon and powdery soft vanilla.’

Boudoir comes in a simple but elegant bottle designed by Fabrice Legros with thick glass and a signature Vivienne Westwood’s logo on top, which is a globe with a ring; it symbolizes the power of femininity.

I will be wearing mine for the special occasions!

 Amour by  Kenzo, £29.07

I was originally drawn to try this scent when
