Julep Light On Your Lips Lipstick Review

My new favorite Winter lipstick is the Julep Light On Your Lips Full-Coverage Crème Lipstick in Strut which is a  Plum Nectar Crème.

What’s to love?

I am a huge fan of the Julep products in general so when I got this lipstick in one of mystery boxes I was thrilled.  The creme formula not only has great coverage but it looks amazing and gives my Winter lips a little moisture. It has:

  • Shea Butter heals dryness and enhances moisture
  • Rosehip Seed Oil delivers essential nutrients to protect, soothe, and repair
  • Malvaceae Lipid Extract improves barrier function so lips retain moisture
  • Green Coffee Bean Oil invigorates skin and promotes cell turnover

I love the plum shade of Strut  which is a nice dark purple shade with a little raisin in the mix. It looks great with bronze eyeshadow too.

Overall I love this formula. It’s a creme that feels like a sheer and I only have to reapply every few hours.

New Lush Plum Rain Shower Gel Review

The New Lush Plum Rain Shower Gel not only reminds me of Prince it also smells amazing!

What’s to love?

This purple wonder is so pretty, the color is a deep, deep clear purple and it’s almost too pretty to use. Almost. The smell is pure on plum as it has Umeboshi (Japanese salt plums) and fresh plum juice. It’s also got Petitgrain Oil and  Sicilian Mandarin Oil. It’s not a sweet fruity but smells very earthy and and lush!

The lather is thick on this one and it makes my skin feel amazing. I really love this new shower gel! It’s a nice Fall scent too,

The Urban Decay Full Frontal Reloaded Vice Lipstick Set is AMAZING!

I think this is my favorite after holiday find. I got a great deal on the Urban Decay Full Frontal Reloaded Vice Lipstick collectors set. It’s a much smaller version of the Urban Decay limited-edition vaults but it’s just as nice!

What’s to love?

First up the box that the Full Frontal Reloaded Vice Lipsticks come in is so nice. It flips open and has satin straps on the side. I am definitely keeping this box on display!

Opening the box is also a huge treat too. I mean you get 5 gorgeous gunmetal cases that contain Vice lipstick and a bonus Ultimate Ozone lip primer pencil. I swear I was drooling when I opened the box!

You get 5 amazing shades of Vice Lipstick in this case including:

  • Seismic (Sheer Shimmer) – Purple plum shade.
  • Gash (Cream) – Deep red with a shimmer.
  • Big Bang (Metallized) – Bright Pink sparkle.
  • Snitch (Sheer) – Light coral and pink.
  • 1993 (Comfort Matte) – Medium Brown.

It was really fun trying them all. Seismic and 1993 are my favorites and I gave Gash to my mom. I swatched the shades below.

If you’re new to the Vice line do check out my review on Vice. This lipstick never lets me down (no I’m not try to Rick Roll anyone)! Seriously, I am a huge fan of the pigmentation, coverage, lasting power and consistency of Vice. It’s just a really high quality product.

Bath & Body Works Sugar Plum Swirl Review

I think I’m finally done with my Bath & Body Works shopping for Christmas. My latest finds are from the Sugar Plum Swirl line.

What’s to love?

The Sugar Plum Swirl scent comes in the Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Fine Fragrance Mist, Ultra Shea Body Cream, Shea & Sparkle Scrub. I got the Body Cream and the Sparkle Scrub which is a beautiful blue shade with major sparkle.

I love that Bath & Body Works has another scent that isn’t traditional red, green and peppermint scented. Sugar Plum Swirl is a wonderful mix of fruits that include plum, tangerine, grapefruit, pear, nectarine and lots of sweetness. I love this scent!

The body cream is a great moisturizer and I’ve been using the sugar scrub now for a dew weeks and it’s done wonders for my skin. I hope they bring this back in the Spring with new scents.

Overall Sugar Plum Swirl is one of my fruity favorites!

Check out the new Bath & Body Works Bath Fizzes for Spring 2017 too.
