Apologies for the lack of posts, the last few months have been crazy…I’m only just catching up with organising upcoming posts. My first being on a few of the products from Ulta3 Superstar collection.
I was kindly sent a few of the lipstick shades and a nail polish from the Spring/Summer ’16 Ulta3 Superstar collection (currently in selected pharmacies)
Ulta3 Superstar Collection Swatches
*Ulta3 Nail polish in ‘Meteorite’- I love this nail polish shade, it’s not like any other polish I already own. I would describe it as a Metallic lilac, with silver shimmer.
Top to bottom
*Ulta3 lipstick in ‘Shooting Star’- This would have to be my favourite of the three shades, an almost nude pink with a slight shimmer to it. I think it really suits my cool skin tone.
*Ulta3 Lipstick in ‘Supernova’- I have a cool undertone to my skin, so anything with a yellow or orange base does not work well with my skin tone. This shade is an orange based red (more orange than it appears in the photo) with a slight shimmer to it.
*Ulta3 Lipstick in ‘Moonlight Mauve’- This shade I would say is more pink with a mauve undertone, rather than straight up mauve as the name suggests. I found this shade to suit me quite well also.
Ulta3 Superstar collection includes nail polish that retails for $2.30 per bottle and lipsticks are $3.95 each and 4 different glitter eyeliners, from selected pharmacies.
I might create a makeup look with one of the lipstick shades shortly
Today I share my review of the recently released * Katy Perry Mad Potion. Katy’s past few fragrances have all been part of her Killer Queen line, however this fragrance has moved away from that and is packaged in a ‘potion’ shaped bottle, to go with the name. Cased in a frosted bottle with a purple glittery plastic lid, while I do like cute packaging, this is my least favourite of the Katy Perry perfume packaging. My favourite will always be the cat shaped bottles of ‘Purr’ and ‘Meow’
Top notes: Vanilla Orchid, Apple Musk, Peonies
Middle notes: Bourbon Vanilla, Jasmine
Base notes: Vanilla, Musk, Amber
* Katy Perry Mad Potion has a balance of vanilla and sweet floral notes and while vanilla features heavily throughout, what comes through the most also is musk and Jasmine. It is more floral than gourmand, but you can still very much tell the vanilla is there. I have worn it on a fairly warm day, but unfortunately it doesn’t have the best staying power, disappointing for a mid range Eau De Parfum. That said, it is a great everyday fragrance that is not too overpowering.
* Katy Perry Mad Potion is available from Priceline, My Beauty Spot, Chemist Warehouse and selected pharmacies.
I will be creating a makeup look inspired by Katy Perry’s promotional material for the perfume shortly
