Review: Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush

Available at Sephora for US$30.00

I purchased the Shiseido Foundation brush a couple months back from Sephora. I was so excited when I placed the order. My package arrived on time and to be honest I really thought that the brush was a big brush however, it basically fit in the palm of my hands. 

MY THOUGHTS
Despite the size of the brush, it is amazing when applying my foundation. The bristle has a slanted top, very dense but remarkable soft. Indeed a little goes a long way with this brush, foundation is applied evenly and gave a flawless finish.





For comparison to other foundation brushes follow the link to Paula over at the Polaberry's Beauty Bloghttp://polaberry.blogspot.com/2011/10/shiseido-perfect-foundation-brush.html )


RATINGS
I am very happy that I purchased the Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush. So it's definitely 


Do you have a HG foundation brush? If so do share...

Review: The Body Shop Shea Body Butter

Retails at US$18.00

The Shea body butter from the Body Shop is an intensive, creamy all over body moisturiser. I recent tried a sample of Shea Body Butter  and I must admit I was indeed curious but at the same time a bit on the "nah" side. I am prone to sweet smelling products and I must tell you that I have come across a few shea products which smelled really bad, but only to the exception of the Body Shop Shea Body Butter. 

MY THOUGHTS:
It smells really great and it moisture power last all day just as it states. It's not to heavy and a little goes along way. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a great body butter for dry skin especially during the winter time. So far I am very satisfied and would definitely be purchasing this product.

RATINGS:

What are your thoughts? Do you have any body butter recommendation for dry skin?

Until then beauties! Have a fab day...

LADY MILLION BY PACO RABANNE




THE FRAGRANCE
"A PERFUME SHOULD BE AS IMBUED WITH MEANING AS IT IS LIGHT TO WEAR." PACO RABANNE


Vibrant and Sensual, Lady Million is like a voluptuous nectar of flowers. Powerfully seductive, the sparkle of bitter orange and a hint of raspberry reveals the fragrance's first breath. Smooth and bright, a burst of neroli follows. Then the lethal weapon: heady orange blossom slips out of its sheath. Its narcotic sweetness then reveals itself, bewitching and demanding all attention.
Joining with sambac jasmine and underline by gardenia, the blend soars into something more carnal yet ever subtle. Now the obsessive pulsing of patchouli enters the fray, pacifying notes of honey with an addictive and supremely tempting sweetness. Amber endnotes become all enveloping, floating around like a ray of light on a diamond.


Notes:
Neroli, Bitter Orange, Raspberry, Orange Flower Absolute, Sambac Jasmine Absolute, Gardenia, Patchouli, Honey, Amber.


Style:
Seductive. Bright. Luxurious




MY THOUGHTS
My first knowledge of Lady Million was through Afrobella. She was giving it away to 5 of her lucky readers (unfortunately I was not one of them). I recently made a purchase from Sephora and received this sample in a Kat Von D makeup case that they were giving filled with samples. The odds are there was a sample of the Lady Million in the make case. I was so eager to try it out. Honestly, I feel in love with the fragrance instantly. It's aroma is elegantly soft. Very powerful but not over powering and long lasting. This fragrance is a must for me (my new signature scent)

Until then beauties...
