Lavanila Fresh Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball

Lavanila Fresh Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball

I’ve always been a sucker for anything vanilla scented and this new Lavanila Fresh Vanilla Lemon Roller-Ball has me seriously smitten.

The limited edition Fresh Vanilla Lemon collection includes this roller-ball, a deodorant, a body butter and a full-sized scent.

This is my first experience with anything from Lavanila (outside of playing with it at Sephora) and I am really happy I was able to try it. The roller-ball comes in a really nice square glass bottle.

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids in Wild Rose and Brazen Berry

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids in Wild Rose and Brazen Berry are two out of ten colors in this line.

Maybelline Colorsensational Vivids

My interest in these became too hard to ignore when I saw these in the store recently. I literally wanted every single one but since I had never tried them I decided on just two. They have a “honey nectar” formula which helps make them super creamy and very hydrating. They have a really nice, light feel and slight shine. No scent or taste that I detected.

Hey there!

I just wanted to drop a quick line to say I have a storefront on Store Envy where I am selling some of my 10 year old (or so) Coach and Michael Kors goodies. I don’t have any makeup or nail polish on there because I don’t sell that stuff, sorry!

Anyway if interested please stop on by and check it out. Vampy Varnish’s Vintage Values.

Thanks!

Nordic Collection by OPI Swatches & Review

Nordic Collection by OPI

The Nordic Collection by OPI for fall 2014 has arrived!

This new twelve-piece fall trends collection features shades inspired by the northern lights of Finland, deep blue fjords in Norway and colorful houses in Copenhagen. Since I have been on a hardcore Nordic obsession this past year, I am super excited about these shades.

Here is what Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, the Co-Founder and Executive VP of OPI says about the collection ” While conceptualizing the shades of the Nordic Collection, I ate cinnamon buns and drank glogg, snapped photographs of brightly painted houses, and gazed in wonder at the region’s topography – from the northern lights and midnight sun to lava flats and deep fjords. All of these diverse elements came together to inspire an equally varied array of colors that capture the aesthetic of the Nordic region. ”

Man I wish I could have been there with her!

Cruelty Free Organic Surge Product Review

Organic Surge

So there’s this brand called Organic Surge and I’ve got some goodies from them to talk about today.

Organic Surge products were started in the UK by Alan MacKenzie who was looking to start a skin company that was free from all the icky chemicals so many skin care products contain. From their website: “Organic Surge loves your skin, lavishing it with naturally-derived, intensely nourishing ingredients and deliciously fragrant essential oils. Just like your skin, Organic Surge products are NOT tested on animals and are 100% free of harsh chemicals – no parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, no artificial fragrances or colourants and no genetically modified ingredients. And the very soul of Organic Surge lies in its charitable donations and hands-on work spanning many years.”

They have a wide range of products for the skin including items for face, bath and body, hair and fragrance. I’ve got a little sampling for body, face and hands/nails.
