Bargain Scent Creation with Scent Trunk

Not wow’d by this fragrance or this one I recently suggested? Well then how about creating your very own personalized scent? With SCENT TRUNK you can do that and the cost doesn’t break the bank. I did this a few years ago and it was quite fun. The only difference with this one is that I do it in the privacy of my own home.

First, you sign up to receive their Fit Kit (just pay for shipping of $4.95) and you will receive back in the mail cute little roll-ons of the following core scents: floral, citrus, woods, aromatic, chypre, and oriental.

Next, go on their site and declare which aforementioned scents you like, dislike or are meh about.

Shortly thereafter, you will receive a spray that should last you the month and then you can reorder the same one or change it up a little the next time for only $11.95/month. And if you don’t like the final scent they send, they’ll send you something new for free.



What I like most about this scent is that I don’t have anything like it in my vast collection of scents! I mean, I really thought I had it covered in my collection but now, I think I do … but do I?

Create your own scent @ and what a thoughtful gift this would make for your best girlfriend or boyfriend!

Is this the Strobing Product of the Summer?


Highlighters are the hottest products in makeup these days, which is funny since they've been around forever. Everyone just wants that glow so I can see why but you've seen one highlighter, you've seen them all, right? That's what I thought. Enter MAYBELLINE FaceStudio Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter ($9.99 @ It’s available in three shades: Light/Iridescent, Medium/Gold, Dark/Nude Glow, and these really caught me off guard.

I’m used to using a powder highlighter these days so it took me a beat to get used to using these that are creams. But wow, so worth it! I’ve pushed the powders aside and these three have taken center stage! I love the different options when it comes to the colors and These. Stay. Put! I don’t think they are waterproof but they are close enough.


A dab and blend on the tops of my cheeks, a dab and blend in my cupids bow, really anywhere and wow, do these perk up my parts, and probably the only ones you need to get you through summer ... seriously.

Urban Decay Gets Even More Naked

Fragrance has been on the top of my mind and here’s another one to consider! As you know, URBAN DECAY loves naked and all things naked so it doesn’t surprise me that they named this one ‘Go Naked’ It’s a concentrated perfume oil and wow is this one tropical and summery! Maybe something you would wear when naked perhaps?

Notes: Italian bergamot, lavender, citrus, neroli, sea salt, musk. For me, the middle notes really shine through with the really orange blossom really standing out to my nose.


It will be $24 and available for VIB Rouge members @ on June 3 and @ on June 7, and then July 13 at all Sephora locations. Like any fragrance the brand has put out over the years, this one is limited-edition so be sure to pick it up while you can.

And be sure to pick up any of their Naked palettes for $54 each through the above link!
