Jo Malone Limited Edition Elderflower and Gooseberry Cologne (Sugar & Spice Collection)

The recently launched limited edition Sugar & Spice Collection from Jo Malone comprises of five fragrances that embodies what I can only describe as "
yummmmm.......". The scents are as follows... brace yourselves because you may likely be mentally transported to the Land of Yummmmm... Bitter Orange & Chocolate - a very sweet and almost smells like it could be edible dark chocolate laced with orange peel scent, Redcurrant & Cream - a slightly musky sweet fruity summer scent, Ginger Biscuit - literally smells like a ginger biscuit, Lemon Tart - refreshing citrus-y fruity scent, and last but not least, the one that I instantly knew I wanted to check out just from reading its name - Elderflower & Gooseberry! Key word here being elderflower... I LOVE elderflower. The scent described on the Jo Malone website:

"A voluptuous gooseberry fool. Crushed, summer-green gooseberries, juicy with lychee, enfolded into the soft delicacy of elderflower. Tender and feminine."

Benefit Cosmetics Dr Feel Good

I've rediscovered an oldie but definitely a goodie - Benefit Cosmetics' Dr Feel Good! When I first started really getting into make up and finding out about the wonders a primer could do for one's complexion, Dr Feel Good (one of Benefit's top sellers) was the first face primer I dabbled in. Since then, I've repurchased this at least 3 times over the years. But being a beauty junkie, I've strayed away from it for several years now for the sake of trying other primers... but recently I decided to repurchase it and I've been using it ever since! On my first use/rediscovery, I asked myself "Girrrrl, why did you ever stop using this?!"

MAC Lipstick - Speak Louder

I've added yet another MAC lipstick to my ever-growing collection! This time the star of the post is MAC's Lipstick in Speak Louder. MAC describes it as a "clean poppy blue pink". It's definitely a muted blue-based pinkish red, the colour is actually brighter and more vibrant in person than it comes off in the photos... but definitely still a very wearable day or night colour.
