LAVANILA Vanilla Coconut Perfume

LAVANILA Vanilla Coconut Perfume

Hello Divas!

I hope your holiday break was awesome! Currently, I am loving Lavanila’s Vanilla Coconut Parfum. It just smells so luscious! When I wear this scent I get so many compliments. Seriously, I smell like a tropical breeze. This fragrance has the musk and sensuousness of vanilla with a hint of coconut and Monoi Tiare. It is so lovely! But the best feature of Lavanila Laboratories’ fragrances is that they are infused with antioxidants goji berry and kakadu plum, soothing willowherb, and hydrating olive leaf. So it smells awesome and its good for you! Lavanila Vanilla Coconut Parfum retails for $56 for a 1.7 oz bottle. You can purchase it at Sephora or online here

As stated by Lisa Hoffman “This frangrance comes with four different vials of pulse point oils, each subtly suited to various parts of the day: Morning, Daytime, Evening, and Bedtime.” How unique and creative! I have been using the oils as instructed and I love it! The Morning scent is light and clean. The Daytime scent is more intense than the Morning scent but still lovely and crisp. The Evening scent is seductive..great for a sexy night out on the town. Lastly, the Bedtime scent is more aromatherapeutic. It is soft, soothing, and sensual. My husband always comments on how nice I smell at bedtime. The Japanese Agarwood frangrance set includes notes of Lemon, Japanese Agarwood, Ginger, Jasmin, Amber and Musk. The set retails for $150, which is not a bad deal considering you get four different scents! Well worth it!

Another fabulous lip gloss! Lancome Juicy Tubes

Another fabulous lip gloss! Lancome Juicy Tubes

Hello Divas!

I hope your day is fantastic! My good girlfriend, Renee S. wanted me to be sure to tell my readers about the fabulousness of Lancome Juicy Tubes. Her exact words are: “I am hooked on Lancome’s Juicy Tubes! It is wonderful when one’s lips feel good, smell good, and taste good all from the same tube!” And I agree. Juicy Tubes come in an array of fabulous colors that compliment any skintone. The shine is outstanding! They also smell sooo good! Based on which collection of Juicy Tubes you purchase, each tube will have a scrumptious smell based on the theme or name of that lip gloss. For example, Juicy Tubes Chic Delights Collection has a Caramel Praline lip gloss that smells and taste like praline candy. See my grandma used to make caramel praline candy from scratch so this lip gloss brings back memories. Yummy! Plus the lip gloss will keep your lips moist all day long. Lancome’s Juicy Tubes lip glosses retail for $18.00. You can purchase them at Sephora.com. I know Divas so many glosses…but my philosophy is you can never have enough lip gloss!

Hot Drugstore Find of the Week: Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

Hot Drugstore Find of the Week: Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

Hello Divas!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! So so so cold this morning! I need homemade banana nut bread and a big cup of tea! My hot drugstore find of the week is Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. This lip balm is a must for cold winter months. If I do not use this lip balm everyday during the winter months, my lips are dry and cracked. Ugh! Burt’s Bees Beeswax lip balm contains lanolin, coconut oil and sunflower oil. So it is very moisturizing. The beeswax seals in hydration so your lips stay moist all day long. Lastly, the lip balm contains peppermint oil so it gives your lips a little refreshing tingle and it smells nice! And for those of us who love natural or organic products, this balm is 95% all natural. I love this balm! You can purchase Burt’s Bees Beeswax lip balm from any CVS for only $3.00.

Nars Cosmetics: My Illicit Love Affair

Nars Cosmetics: My Illicit Love Affair

Hello Divas!

I hope your Monday is filled with happiness and purpose! It is cold, cold, cold. Lots of Starbucks Refresh Tea for me! Today I am going to discuss my love affair with Nars Cosmetics. I say it is a love affair because the cosmetics are gorgeous but expensive. It is especially expensive when you buy 2 Nars blushes and an eyeshadow duo once a month! Ouch! But what can I say, I absolutely adore Nars. The colors are so highly pigmented, you don’t have to use a lot of the product to achieve the color. So the product lasts longer. And unlike other cosmetics brands, you don’t need a primer to make the color last all day. Nars blushes, eyeshadows, and bronzers just last! Lastly, the colors ROCK on any skin tone. So your skin tone can be ivory or dark mocha and the colors just work. Um did I say how much I love Nars? LOL! Now I have previously blogged about my fascination with Nars’ blushes here and the Multiple here. But Nars has other fabulous products that I must share with you Divas. Today, I want to feature Nars lip glosses. Fantastic! The lip glosses are nourishing, highly pigmented, and the colors are gorgeous. I am absolutely loving Turkish Delight. Turkish Delight is a current cult fav! It is a sheer pink gloss that is perfect layered over a neutral or nude lipstick or alone with a great lip pencil. It creates the perfect nude lip and looks great on every skin tone. Now Nars’ lip glosses retail for $24 but are so worth it! Currently, Nars is offering free shipping on any purchase of $40.00 or more. So you can buy two of their beautiful lip glosses and not have to pay for shipping. Fantabulous!

Fun Fridays! Honorable Mentions & Cool Finds

Hello Divas!

I hope your Friday is going great! Divas I am super excited today! Fashion Columnist and personal shopper extraordinaire, Elana of Diary of a Personal Shopper, included Luxe Tips in her top stylish sites list! Only 15 blogs made the list and I was too thrilled. It is so nice to receive compliments. It really motivates me to do my best to keep bringing the best content! Check it out here!

Speaking of shopping finds for less, last week I purchased a LIKE NEW Misty Harbor Trench Coat from the Junior League’s Nearly New thrift shop for only $11! I am beside myself with joy. A zip out wool lining is included! Hello! If you do not shop at thrift shops, then you must! Considering the current economic crisis, it is a great way to save TONS of money and still have those staple and trendy fashion items. I know it can be time consuming, but once you find a gem it is like hitting the lottery. You can also shop some thrift shops online. Check out the Goodwill online shop here.
