First impressions; Wild Glow edt by Jennifer Lopez...



Jennifer Lopez has just launched her new limited edition fragrance Wild Glow, which is inspired by the upbeat rhythm of music pulsing through the crowd and bright lights that represent joy of life. It is described as a floral-fruity composition that pulsates with energy.
Wild and energetic, Wild Glow celebrates freedom, beauty and happiness. It opens with a fruity blend of mandarin, black currant and tropical fruits. The floral heart of star jasmine, heliotrope and lily of the valley is laid on the base of sandalwood, musk and vanilla.

Sweet, like chocolate (a deeper look at the I ❤️Chocolate palette by I❤️Makeup)...

Step aside; there's a new cowboy in town...

As I mentioned in my last I ❤️ Makeup palette review, I don't live near any stores big enough to stock Too Faced cosmetics, and I'm not fond of buying makeup online. This means that I've never gotten around to buying their Chocolate Bar palette, despite drooling over photos, blog posts etc.


However, when I was browsing their makeup display, I saw that I  ❤️ Makeup have released their own version of the Chocolate Bar palette called I   ❤️ Chocolate. So I naturally bought it, and have been taking photographs over the past few months as I've been trying out various colour combinations, so other people can follow me and decide if it's worth investing in as a last-minute stocking stuffer...

Be bold, be... Big & Daring [mascara by Avon]...



I've never been a lover of Avon mascaras in the past as I have found that they tend to have really wet formulas which makes them prone to clumping, so this mascara has been a real surprise for me as it isn't as wet as the others I've tried.


I love the big, doll eyed look, and this mascara gives my lashes the mega volume, great separation and rich colour to make the look easy to achieve.

NOTD: Bearest Of Them All over Christmas Gone Plaid by OPI...

Most of my festive nail polishes are from 2008 to 2012, so I wanted to post a quickie review and (iffy) swatches for this combo I recently wore, as the polishes are both from this year's OPI Holiday collections...
