NEW Butterfly Fragrance At Bath & Body Works For Spring!

Bath & Body Works just launched a new fragrance for Spring called Butterfly. The scent notes are raspberry nectar, iris petals and airy vanilla. I love this fragrance, it smells like a casual floral, fruity scent with notes of vanilla. The fragrance comes in a wide variety of products including a perfume. bubble bath, creamy body scrub, hand soap, candle and body care.

The Butterfly packaging is beautiful in white, purple and blue with large butterfly wings on each piece. The perfume has a slip cover that shows a moving butterfly when you slide it back and forth!

Too Faced Dew You Fresh Glow Luminous Face Primer Review

I just picked up the new Too Faced Dew You Fresh Glow Luminous Face Primer and I am loving it! This is going to be my new Summer favorite.

The Dew You Face Primer comes in 3 shades: Radiant Pearl, Radiant Nude and Radiant Carmel. I have the pearl shade. It’s super translucent.

What I love about this product is that it’s super moisturizing and it smells like watermelon and cucumber.

As described, Dew You is completely weightless. I hate wearing heavy products in the Summer and this one feels so refreshing on my face. I also found that it works so well under my make-up. I am a huge fan of the It Bye Bye Under Eye Waterproof Concealer and when I apply this concealer over the Dew You it feels amazing! No more tugging under my eyes, it just glides right on.

I would call the Too Faced Dew You a fresh primer that makes my skin feel light and refreshed and I love that I get a little bit of glow without a hard shimmer. I truly do feel luminous!

The ColourPop Disney Villains Collection Review

This week I picked up 3 of the ColourPop Disney Villains set and the Disney Villains Misunderstood Palette from Ulta and I am thrilled!

The collection consists of — 6 Disney Villain sets which each include a Lux Lipstick, Ultra Glossy Lip, and Super Shock Highlighter. I picked up Cruelle, Maleficent and Ursula. The art on these packages is amazing!

The lipstick shades tend to but on the dark side but you can layer the Ultra Glossy Lip gloss on top for a buildable look.

Separately you can purchase the the Disney Villains Misunderstood Palette (which I got) and 6 Jelly Much eyeshadow and 2 Glitterally Obsessed sparkle shades.

So far I am loving the palette it’s much darker than the ColourPop Disney Princesses Palette. You can see my vs. video below!

Overall I am loving the entire collection as it’s prices very reasonable — the sets are $25 and you can use your Ulta $3.50 coupon. I am also loving the versatile looks I can get with both the shadows and the highlighters. All the products are buildable and beautiful!

Yay for the Disney Villains! The entire Villains PR collection set is $250, oh how I’d love this!

Clinique

Dillard’s Clinique Bonus Time Spring 2019

I just picked up the new Dillard’s Clinique Bonus gift with purchase for March 2019 yesterday. I spent exactly $29 by getting two of the Take Off The Day face wipes which I love for $14.50 each. The bag was then free as a gift with purchase! I believe this one ended yesterday.

See what I got!

Beauty Reviews, Urban Decay

Urban Decay Elements Palette is WOW!

I think one of my favorite eyeshadow palette purchases of 2018 was Urban Decay Elements Palette that’s now $26 but currently out of stock : ( — but Urban Decay been known to restock sale items online.

Elements is like Star Trek, meets Boy George — err, ok that’s a little weird. However, these shades have an 80’s Culture Club feel to me.

My favorite is the shifty Fortune Teller shade (to the right of the bright blue one) that looks grey but is actually “metallic pink-red with green 3-D sparkle and shift” YES!

I also the brown Moon Rock shade which is “metallic copper with iridescent sparkle”. The greens have a Slytherin quality, unfortunately I’m not much of a green eyeshadow girl but they are pretty!

The case is gorgeous too with a sparkly rainbow cover and huge mirror. I love a good mirror!

Everything you need to know about the Bath & Body Works Gingham Collection Launch!

I just got my hands on the new Bath & Body Works Gingham hand cream and I am thrilled with this scent. According to the Bath & Body Works press release Gingham is officially being released on April 15th in store and online.

Bath & Body Works notes include: Sweet citrus, blue freesia, sweet clementine and soft violet petals.

I find the Gingham to be a sweet fruity floral and I love it. It’s light enough to be worn during the day and it would make a pretty Summer evening scent. The fruit scent is definitely orangey!
