MiNi HauL: cLiNiqUe + CaLviN kLeiN

i received a perfume as a present the other day but i wanted to exchange it with a gift set...especially one with a roller ball...because I've always wanted a roller ball..seems so convenient but i can't find any to purchase in the shops!! so i exchanged the single perfume for this Calvin Klein Euphoria Gift boyfriend helped me pick this one out since he is an expert on fragrances..unlike me...i just get confused and end up with a headache smelling all those different scents....

i am so pleased with this set!! it has a 50 ml eau de parfum spray, a 100ml sensual skin lotion and of course the roller ball!!! this fragrance smells so pretty and fresh to me...terrible description i know..this is what i found when i googled it on line:

Pomegranate, Persimmon, Green Notes, Black Orchid, Lotus Blossom, Champaca Flower, Liquid Amber, Mahogany Wood, Black Violet, Cream Accord.

Euphoria is about sexiness, fantasy, and being captivating. Sexy and sensual, euphoria speaks to the woman who has the urge to break free from everyday life - to provocatively be part of an exciting world filled with pleasure, surprise, and temptation. Her fragrance is a contrast between exotic fruits and seductive florals, for a rich, creamy, seductive signature.

that's so funny!!! i really am a woman who has the urge to break free from everyday life!!!! hehehe :)))

i was running out of my eye cream and eye cream samples that i had so i started researching for a new one...
the shop assistant showed me this cooling roller ball (again with the roller balls!!!) that leaves the tiniest amount of serum around your eyes...i thought this was a great deal because by purchasing the the All About Eyes De-Puffing Eye Massage 15 ml you get a All About Eyes Rich 7 ml eye cream, a High Impact Mascara 4 g (which I've mentioned in a  previous post) and a make up bag for free. great deal for only 25 euros i think!!! 

I'm already liking this product... i was awake for a full 22 hours on Saturday...went to bed at 5:30 a.m. after a long night of clubbing and i was up a few hours later... i used the eye serum roller ball and i did feel a bit relieved on the eye area... i will use this in my daily routine and give a full review...I'm putting it to the real test: the holiday party season......not that i don't party every week anyway :)

i also picked up a Greenland Coconut Lip Balm because it smelled amazing and fresh...i prefer lip balms to glosses and lipsticks for everyday .....

Samples i received: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Eye....
and Just Cavalli I LOVE HER fragrance

what are your resent purchases? do you use an eye serum or an eye cream? what is your current fragrance?

My BoDy ShOp CoLLeCtiOn + 1st ReViEw

i used to love The Body Shop products while i was in my early teens but then i just sort of grew out of that phase...months ago i went in to purchase a Coconut Body Butter and they asked me if i wanted a Body Shop i said yes...I've been taking advantage of the 10% off every purchase and collecting points ever since... my B.S. collection grew over night...some things i love...and some things not so much...
my 1st review...others might follow....

this is the only brush i carry around everyday in my make up bag. this is a very very soft brush. softer than Sigma and Mac but doesn't pick up as much product. i use it to re-apply my face powder during lunch and if i have to re-apply a bit of blusher i use this again and then clean the blush off by swirling it on a tissue..
Definitely worth the 13.50 euros.

i purchased the little travel size 50 ml one to keep in my desk at work and use as a hand cream.
but the scent was so strong i felt like it gave me a little headache every time i used it. some girls at work loved the smell and asked me what i was using..other girls had the same reaction as me...
i will me trying it out as a body butter now that i brought it home...

i call this my baby Clarisonic...I've never used a Clarisonic before but in theory it should work in the same just have to do all the work and swirl it around your face for a minute or's definitely the Old School Clarisonic...this B.S. one is really soft but after i washed it in the dishwasher twice its even better...after i use my milk cleanser to remove my make-up i use this with my gel cleanser and it takes off any residue from the make up or the exfoliates lightly...and makes my skin feel super clean...
for only 4 euros this is definitely one of my favorite Body Shop products i use religiously every night! 

this is one of my favourite hair products ever...and I'm really picky with hair products...
my hair is long, thick, wavy...and very out of control and frizzy on very humid days.. so mostly every day :)
this products gets rid of the frizz..makes my hair look smooth and shiny..not at all greasy..
best makes my hair smell all coconuty..i get so many compliments on that!

ok so i have very oily skin..combined with hot weather and humidity it's trouble!! i need to powder up every few hours or else i just look like a mess...but before i re-apply powder i like to absorb some of the oilyness using these blotting tissues..they work better than toilet paper (haha!) but i feel sometimes that they are too thin...i need 2 tissues each time ... i borrowed a MAC blotting tissue from my friend once and it was much thicker and almost three times the size of these B.S. ones so of course i only needed one...but I'm not sure if the MAC ones are ridiculously priced so if they are I'm sticking to these babies.....
