Autumn Fragrance: Giorgio Armani - Si

As the autumn season is here, it’s time to switch up perfumes that have a sense of warmth, darkness with a little spice and sweetness.

SI by Giorgio Armani is a new addition to my perfume collection. Si, is an feminine, elegant, refined smell that represents the modern woman. Apparently Giorgio Armani’s inspiration for this perfume were the fragrances worn by his mother. 

Si is quite long lasting and slightly sweet and can be compared to Lancome’s La Vie est Belle - but not as sweet/fruity.

I would describe the scent as a mixture of vanilla, patchouli, fruity and woody explosion of elegance and femininity!

It’s notes are Chypre, Blackcurrant Nectar, Airy Florals and Musky Blond Wood.

Highly Recommend!

Si retails for:  $115 for 100 ml

Review: Too Faced - Better Than Sex/Love Mascara

My quest for finding the best mascara might have come to an end for quite a while. The minute I tried this mascara on, I knew that this was the one. 

To describe the formula, the first word that comes to my mind is, silky. Silky, is a bit of an odd way to describe it, but it’s so smooth and effortless to apply that I feel it is the best way to describe my initial thought!

Review: Chanel - Soleil Tan De Chanel

This bronzer is amazing! It’s hard to describe exactly what the consistency is because it looks like a mousse but it is described as a cream product which is an illuminating makeup base. I find that the name of it is a little deceiving because many will think this acts as a makeup base that is to be applied all over the face. That in fact is incorrect, because Soleil Tan De Chanel is essentially a bronzer, if you were to apply this all over the face the results wouldn't be very flattering.

MAC Lipsticks

It’s no secret, MAC is by far my favourite brand for matte lipsticks. In my opinion, MAC have perfected the formula for matte lipsticks. Most other brands that produce matte lipsticks end up with a consistency that is too dry which ends up making lips look very wrinkly or it becomes a nightmare trying to apply that product because it is so dry that the lipstick doesn’t apply very easily, which then becomes a problem if you’re trying to blend the lipstick. However, this post isn’t about MAC matte lipsticks, it’s about MAC lipsticks that I have recently gotten, so let’s begin!

*REVIEW: Oriflame Giordani Gold Iconic Lipstick!

A few weeks ago I was sent the Giordani Gold Iconic Lipstick by Oriflame Cosmetics in the color Red Fatale. The first thing I did was try it on my lips; I did not waste a second to swatch it or take a photograph of it. Oops….
