My Favorites Lately – Makeup, Clothes and More!

It has been months since my last favorites post, and there has been various items I have been wanting to share, over the span of the last few months; so I will be sharing them in this one post.  To hear me talk about each feel free to watch the video below!

tarte flush3

I won this Tarte power pigment crayon, flush, from an instagram giveaway. I have been in love since I received it. To me it looks like a pinky, berry, red. It doesn’t dry out my lips and I really like how it looks on me.

butter london jaded jack cream eye shadow

I received many lovely things from my friend, Honey, for Christmas; one of which was this Butter London cream eye shadow in Jaded Jack. It is an exquisite shade, and I like how it looks on my lids. It is soft, and creamy. When I apply it, it feels wonderful!!

colour pop partridge

When I experimented with my Butter London cream shadow and Colour Pop’s stunning peacock green and brown shadow, in Partridge (from their Not A Box Of Chocolate’s set), I was amazed!!!  I applied Partridge over Jaded Jack, and the result was so beautiful.  The two complimented each other so well, and really made my green hazel eyes stand out.  I love wearing these two together!

Here are swatches of Tarte’s Flush Crayon, Butter London’s Jaded Jack, and Partridge.

pacifica mexican cocoa

One of the fragrances I have been enjoying as of late is Pacifica’s Mexican Cocoa perfume, that I had purchased several months ago from Pacifica’s website.  It smells of spice to me.  The notes for this fragrance are Mexican Chocolate, Cinnamon, Almond, Nutmeg, and Vanilla.  To read more about this fragrance and my thoughts, check out my review here.

marula oil

After I work my Marula oil (that I had won in an Ipsy glambag challenge) into my legs, after I have shaved, my legs feel so luxuriously soft!!  This oil is just wonderful, and I really enjoy using it.

softlips cube

On my instagram, I posted a small drugstore haul, a little over two weeks ago.  In that haul, was the softlips cube.  Since then, I have used up about half of it.  It tastes and smells so fruity, and feels smooth on my lips.  I will definitely be repurchasing this lip balm when I run out.

roses cross double ring

My mother-in-law said this cross double ring reminded her of me, when she gave it to me for Christmas.  I do love it! It’s just darling! I love roses and actually did not have a double ring before now.  I have seen them around, but just hadn’t picked one up yet.  This is lovely and a good fit for me.

off shoulder zulily

This off-shoulder grey top, I had ordered a while back from Zulily, has become a go to of mine. It is so warm and comfortable.  I really would like to get more in other colors eventually.

black jeanez ripped jeanez

About a month or two ago, I saw an infomercial on tv for a brand called Jeaneez.  They sell leggings with jean print on them. I saw Jeaneez had a buy one get two deal so I decided to make a purchase.  All three I enjoy wearing, but the black and the “ripped” printed ones are my favorites.

Pacifica Mexican Cocoa Perfume Review

pacifica2

Last November, I ordered a new fragrance for myself, the Mexican Cocoa Perfume, from Pacifica’s website.  The holiday’s were coming up, and I wanted to try a new scent that smelled yummy and sweet.  I had seen the Mexican Cocoa on their website before, and felt then I was ready for something new.  I ordered it on the twentieth and it was delivered on the twenty-fourth. I paid twenty two dollars for one fluid ounce and five ninety-five for shipping.

When first I tried it, I didn’t know if I was going to be much of a fan.  It seemed so strong and was not at all like I had imagined.  I thought, being that it was supposed to be a cocoa scent, it would have that chocolate, sweet smell; instead it was like a very strong spice.  However, as it faded, it became lighter. Each time I decided to try it again, I began to like it more.  At first, it has the strong spice aroma, yet as the hours go by, while the notes nutmeg and cinnamon still seem more noticeable, there was that subtle hint of the cocoa that would become more apparent.

The notes for the perfume in this cute bottle include: Mexican Chocolate, Cinnamon, Almond, Nutmeg, and Vanilla.

The staying power is wonderful! Four hours that followed after initially spritzing myself, I could still smell it on my arms. And after around six hours later after the first use, I would run my fingers across my clavicle and my nose could still pick up traces of it from my fingers.

My only wish, personally, is that their fragrances came with caps.  I do prefer to have caps over my perfumes, as it gives me piece of mind, when carrying them around (and even in general, sitting on my vanity, I like to have all my fragrances tops closed up) that they are sealed and are less likely to be bumped by something in my handbag, and spray every where. Not that I recall having such a mishap with this fragrance, but I do like that assurance.

I think this has become a favorite of mine for fall and winter.  I like scent, the staying power, and its being 100% vegan, made in the USA, cruelty free, and free of phthalates, parabens, and propylene glycol are pluses too!!

Do you use this perfume? What do you think of it? What perfumes are you enjoying right now? Feel free to comment below!!
