Drugstore Steal: Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss

Ladies, run – don’t walk – to the nearest drugstore and buy these Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Glosses. They’re part of Revlon’s new summer release – its first color collection with global artistic director Gucci Westman. I cannot stress enough how creamy and pigmented these glosses are. The colors pictured are Coral Reef, Peach Petal and Lilac Pastelle. They remind me so much of MAC Cremesheen glosses that my mind is spinning a bit.

As you can see, no shimmer – just a lot of shine. There are five glosses in total in this collection, along with an eyeshadow quad and nail polishes. I’m so digging these glosses that I may have to go and pick up the other too. I’ll be running….

A Juicy Scent: Marc Jacobs Splash in Apple

Marc Jacobs is back at it again with the release of his popular summer Splash fragrances – this year in Apple, Pomegranate and Biscotti. If you’re looking for a lighter summer fragrance, you should start your search with these. Inspired by the decadence of a patisserie shop (a French bakery!), these scents are indulgent and enticing — but incredibly fresh and light. Making it the perfect summer fragrance!

I’m currently in love with the Apple, it’s such an interesting scent. It’s actually a more masculine scent in my opinion — it’s very energetic and not overly fruity or floral. The notes include apple zest, lemon and grapefruit combined with rosemary, jasmine, magnolia, coriander and cardamom.

And check out the bottle? That’s what 10 oz. looks like – isn’t it huge? I have rather small hands and sometimes hold on with both of them when using this!  Marc Jacobs Splash is available at most department stores and at Sephora.
