I would not have known about this collection had it not been for Scrangie. I saw her review and before I knew it, I was ordering from Head2ToeBeauty. This is one collection that I HAD to have.

Yo, LUSH Karma solid perfume…I love you!

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve splurged on an actual perfume. My nose isn’t even attracted to them anymore. I am now a fan of fragrances that have more of natural and woodsy scent. Plus, I find that they are better for me health-wise. Traditional fragrances tend to mess with my allergies a bit. I didn’t WANT to purchase this solid perfume from LUSH. But alas, my favorite LUSH guy convinced me to…

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this fragrance. If I could bottle my personality up in a scent, Karma would be it. It’s subtle but strong. It isn’t demanding but it leaves a mark. It lingers, it’s interesting and it definitely can’t be compared to any other scent. It’s original and unique. It has patchouli and citrus notes and I can see how many people don’t like it. It isn’t your average fragrance. And I think that’s why I love it so much.

The solid perfume is long-lasting and perfect for traveling. I’ve been using it for a month or so now and I’ve still got a big chunk left. Not bad for $9.95. And because many LUSH fans realize how awesome Karma is, it also comes in a body cream, bubble bar, body powder and soap. But I like it best on the wrists and on my neck. You know you want to try it. Snag it from the LUSH website or take a stroll to your neighborhood LUSH store.

Guest Post: Review and swatches of MAC Quite Cute collection

MAC’s latest collection Quite Cute was released earlier this month on April 7th. I have a weakness for pastels so I picked up a few things from the collection. I also picked up a Gold Deposit Mineralize Skin Finish. It’s a part of the other collection released this month from MAC, Bronze Everyday. I was almost out of my favorite foundation MAC’s Pro Longwear (NW50) so I picked up my second bottle. I am addicted to it. It lasts longer than any other foundation that I have tried. I just set it and forget it, I’m good for ten or more hours. Amazing!

Check out the pictures and swatches of my haul.
