Review: Victoria's Secret Love Rocks Perfume....

Thursday, December 10, 2009



See this?!! I got this cute black clutch with 5 deluxe samples in it from Victoria's Secret for $15 with any beauty purchase...so many great things to try and rock at a great price!! One of the goodies I was excited about wearing was the new scent Love Rocks.... Its the red roll on in the picture:).
According to the website, the notes for Love Rocks are:

Fragrance type: fruity floral

Top notes: bergamot, peony, raspberry sorbet

Middle notes: sandalwood flower, jasmine, peach nectar, plum, stephanotis

Low notes: golden amber, violet, cashmere musk, vanilla


Its described as a 'fruity floral' but I know an amber/bergamot/sandalwood based scent when I smell one!!! It's more spicy and oriental. I really didn't catch the floral on the initial application or on the dry down. Its reminded me of the Halle Scent...

But to have so many 'heavy' bases, its very light. Not overwhelming. You could discreetly wear this at night...subtle sexiness....

Overall, I like it but doubt I will invest in a full size. I have sooo many warm,spicy scents very similar to Love Rocks. Alot of companies are doing that warm " floral" thing now.....

Review: Santee Mineral Eye Colors in #4.....

I picked up this Santee Mineral Eye Colors Palette in #4 because the colors where so warm and fall-like AND all in one palette!

I probably have all these colors or similar to these colors in singles and other palette but to have them all together and for $3 was not a shabby deal.:)
It says they are "mineral". **shrugs**I don't get it but the colors are beautiful, light pigmented, just enough to give you color....
This look is good for a daytime, work color eye look. Subtle but has lots of punch....

Review:L.A.Colors 12 Eyeshadow Palette in Supernatural....

Another L.A. Colors Palette!! This time in 'Supernatural'. A great palette of blue shades....
Got for a $1 at Dollar General along with Traditional...
I love it!!!
I worked about four colors of this palette for the look. The colors are pigmented just enough. Sometimes blue eyeshadows looks harsh on me but these didn't. L.A. Colors shadows, so far, hold up well with a primer underneath....
