NEW Salvatore Ferragamo Scents

Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Scent and Tuscan Soul

Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Scent and Tuscan Soul

press-sampleThe latest scents from the house of Ferragamo are very luxe, and very exclusive! Intended for true aficionados, and sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue, these new additions to the Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Soul and Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Scent collections pay tribute to the splendor of Italy.

Tuscan Soul La Corte was inspired by the Italian Renaissance, with notes of jasmine absolute and almond milk chased with a heart of white lily and iris.  Dry down notes are succulent vanilla bourbon and white amber.  Tuscan Soul La Corte is the latest addition to the “Tuscan Soul” collection of exclusive fragrances available at Saks, and launched in July.  An Eau De Toilette 2.5 fl. oz. spray bottle retails for $190.

Tuscan Scent Leather Rose is a marriage of opposites: the masculine scent of leather paired with the feminine scent of the rose simply works.  Top notes of rose infusion and cardamom launch the experience, then heart notes of centifolia rose and Bulgarian rose anchor the scent.  Dry down notes of cypriol and suede finish the olfactory experience.  In my mind, this scent is inspired by an elegant woman sauntering into a Ferragamo shoe shop during his early years as a designer.  Her rose scent pairs with his leather in an electric way!  Tuscan Scent Leather Rose is the latest addition to the “Tuscan Scent” collection, and a 2.5 fl. oz. Eau De Parfum spray bottle retails for $250.

Both boxes feature weighty wooden stands to use as a display for your new treasure.  Each scent is truly unique, and I highly recommend you sample some of the scents in these collections if you are looking for a new signature scent that is uncommon!  Click HERE to shop these fragrances at Saks.com, and keep scrolling for more photos of these gorgeous bottles!

Lancôme Foundation and Corrector Brush

Lancôme Foundation And Corrector Brush 26 Review

press-sampleI’ve been having fun playing with the Lancôme Dual-End Foundation and Corrector Brush #26. This brush uses both synthetic and natural bristles, and can apply and buff foundation and concealer to perfection! The brush features a dual-end design, one end is a larger foundation brush and the other a more precise brush for correcting and concealing.  Both sides can be used with any liquid or cream-based product, even the recently-reviewed Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick!

The petite “corrector” side features a small brush with short bristles.  This end of the brush is perfect for targeting breakouts, or tight areas of the face like around the nose.

For broader product application, or all-over foundation application, the larger “foundation” side of the brush should be used.

I’m such a makeup brush addict, I must have a half-dozen foundation brushes in my rotation!  I’m loving the dual-ended space saving design of this brush right now!  Retail price is $46.

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogFall is approaching, fast and furious, so it seemed appropriate that I pull together a L’Oreal Fall Perfection Trio.  These L’Oréal Colour Riche Monos shades are perfect to add that touch of autumn to your look.  Their petite size is ideal for mixing and matching, and feature a gel-to-powder formula that is silky to the touch!

Featured above are three shades of L’Oréal Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow that are my top picks for Fall.  From left to right: Green Promenade is a rich emerald green with a hint of gold. Deep shades of green like this are perennially perfect for Fall.  Sunset Seine is a zesty golden orange that bridges from summer to fall perfectly, and adds that touch of fall foliage to your eye makeup.  Paris Beach is a pale warm ivory that works great as a highlight, and has warm undertones that are perfect for Fall.

Retail price is $5.99 per shadow, but keep your eye out for deals at Ulta because you can grab a discount now and then!  Right now the steal is buy two get one free!  Retailers include Ulta.com, Target, and you can buy direct from L’Oreal.

MAC Vamplify Lipgloss

MAC Vamplify Lipgloss 2016

press-sampleThe incredibly pigment-rich MAC Vamplify Collection is back in the spotlight!   For my readers who love the high-pigment color payoff of a lipstick but the incredible shine of a gloss, Vamplify is a must-have.  This formula was introduced back in 2015 and the first thing that grabbed me when I applied it was how amazing the product feels on the lips.  This is a moisturizing formula, so it almost feels like a tip treatment when applied.  Seven new colors have been added to this collection of glosses for Fall 2016, including dusky shades perfect for the Fall season, and a cool-hued violet that is so modern!
