My latest thing has been YouTube. I have been watching many, many YouTube videos. And very recently, I have been watching many many beauty and make up channels. This has been awesome and inspiring and has made me want to get out my make up and play. It has also made me want to shop, and my budget is not really allowing that. Alas. But here are a few things that I *would* be snatching up if I could.
The first time I fell in love with a perfume was around age 14. One of the ways my friends and I liked to spend our weekends was walking around the local mall. Around this time Elizabeth Taylor’s perfumes seemed to be pretty popular and one of the varieties that existed was Diamonds and Sapphires. I LOVED it. Every week, we’d wander through all the stores, and I’d spray myself with the sample. Eventually, when I was a little older, I got a bottle of it for Christmas. It was discontinued, though I’m told one can maybe still find it through the online discount perfume stores. I had forgotten just how much I loved it. Until the other night when I was walking around Meijer in search of a Wet & Wild eye shadow palette (which I did not find. I think I missed the boat on the after party palette.) and I passed a display of Coach fragrances. Two of the three were labeled fruity florals so I sprayed one on each wrist and went on about my business. Then I actually sniffed them. And one of them smells JUST LIKE DIAMONDS AND SAPPHIRES YOU GUYS. I kept sniffing my wrist and happily sighing. I went back to the display and sprayed myself more times than I’m going to admit to. Wrists, neck, coat. As much as I could with it being a stuck down sample bottle. I wanted to bathe in it and buy it on the spot. But I restrained myself. Because it was $45? I think? Maybe $42. More than I could justify at any rate. But that was fine, because then I found it for much less on Amazon and Sephora, which will make it much more do-able. Perhaps if I have any birthday money to spare. Coach Poppy Flower will be mine.
Moving on to the make up!
Next on the list of pretty new things that I would like to own: Divergent Multi-Piece Collectors Kit
I just watched a video reviewing/swatching everything in this kit. Everything in it looks so pretty! It’s a lot more neutral than I tend to want to buy but there is a lot of shimmer, which I am definitely into.
It includes a bunch of eye shadow, a couple blushes, a highlighter, a bronzer, 4 lip glosses, and a dual ended brush. It’s just under $60 and this is why it will not be coming home with me, much as I would love it.
And finally, Divergent Multi-Piece Collector’s Palette
This is a smaller collection with some more similar mostly neutral colors. Still so pretty! It includes 3 eye shadows, a blush, a bronzer, and a lip gloss and is $32.50 (sadly, still not coming home with me.)
I’s still been on the sample kick and have had a lot of things that I’ve been intending to review. They’re coming. Hopefully. Maybe. We’ll see.
