Well, I don’t really know if a month ever goes by without me buying some sort of new beauty item. my bank account would probably appreciate me not doing it but on the other hand, I earn my money and I want to spend it the way I like it. when I first fell head over heels in love with makeup I went completely wild and bought loads and loads of drugstore and a fair few high end beauty treats every month and even though it was fun and I loved it, it wasn’t very sustainable and I ended up throwing loads of barely used products away. currently, I’m much more considerate when buying new beauty products. I do my research and only really buy what I really want and not just for the sake of it. At the end of the day I’m a high end beauty lover and like spending a tad more. recently, I have bought two new things and I wanted them for a while and just had to share them with you.
when I was out buying a gift for one of my lovely friends I got a few little perfume samples and usually, I don’t really pay much attention to them. maybe I’ll put one in my handbag for an emergency smell wise but this time there was one I was really interested in it. it was dolce & gabbana the only one. personally, I’m a huge fan of the “the one” franchise by dolce & gabbana and own the original scent for women and my boyfriend uses its male counterpart which is my ultimate favourite scent. it’s just so good. well, what can I say? I fell in love immediately. this is one of the most feminine and sensual scents I have ever smelled but yet it’s not heavy or overly sweet at all. It’s light enough to be worn on a day to day basis but it also sexy and deep enough for a night out. with notes of a blooming bouquet, violets and iris it gets hit with notes of coffee and bergamot but also has a vanilla and patchouli base. its absolutely beautiful and so unique. I can’t get enough of it and it just is as beautiful as all the scents in the “the one” series.
In said beauty store I once was served by a lady with the most beautiful lipstick on and I had to ask her what it was after she helped me. I have not thought about it for a while until I found the product details in one of my handbags and I remembered it right away. I love red lipsticks and my favourite red has to be an orange toned red. they just work for me and just are perfect for summer. the Dior Rouge lipstick in 844 Trafalgar is just that. on top of the perfect colour its also very creamy which makes it so easy to wear as it doesn’t fade in patches. ever since getting it, I have been wearing it non-stop. its the perfect fresh and bold summer colour.
Have you tried any of the two products I have bought? what do you think? Please let me know.
