Flowerbomb La Vie en Rose review

I was very excited to try this since Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb has been my favorite perfume for years. Now that everyone's caught onto it I wanted something new and unfortunately this is online only so I ordered it without smelling it first. I figured if it was like Flowerbomb is was a pretty safe purchase. This new 2013 version, Flowerbomb La Vie en Rose was too different from the sweet floriental I love. The citrus was overwhelming for me and it actually gave me a headache. It does dry down to a brighter, more spicy version of flowerbomb. I think if you like citrus scents this might be perfect for you. I'll stick to the original.

Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick Review

This gloss stick from Soap & Glory is my new favorite lip balm/gloss. I had been eyeing this brand since it first showed up at Sephora. I really like the packaging and the irreverent product names are kinda cute. This gloss stick is my first from this brand but I will be definitely trying more from them. 

I like this lip crayon better than the other two I've tried. The Clinique Chubby Stick, which for me was just the teeniest bit gritty, was not as shiny as this, has no flavor and feels more like a lip balm. Tarte's LipSurgences usually leave a tint which is nice but they are not very glossy, they go on more like a lipstick, and they are minty flavored, which is not my preference but not offensive either. This one from Soap & Glory has a super sweet vanilla flavor (I am a sucker for anything vanilla). It doesn't last long but its nice nonetheless. It feels more tacky like a gloss than the others. I got it in nudist and it is a nice pinky natural nude tone. Highly recommend these and can't wait to get the other 2 colors. Buy from Sephora for $16 here
