Lady Gaga “Fame” Fragrance and Body Lotion Review

description

Gaga’s team cleverly designed a perfume that is black in color but once sprayed, it is claimed to go on transparent. The corresponding body lotion also comes in a creamy black and glittery liquid but once it is rubbed into your skin, it supposedly “disappears.”

I have to say I was disappointed with this product. The lotion gives your hands a strange tint – almost as if they’re dirty. The black pigment gets stuck under your nails as well. The scent is delightful, strangely a tad different from the eau de parfume. Does it moisturize? Not really. It’s as good as any generic lotion you can find on a shelf (even from the dollar store). The only good thing about it is the scent.

The fragrance wasn’t as eccentric as claimed to be. Sure, the packaging is cleverly done as well as the medium of the product in black. I just didn’t find it to be “all that.” It smells a bit fruity and woodsy and the same time. I wouldn’t risk spritzing it onto light clothing however. It’s just not worth the risk considering the poor quality of the lotion.

Overall, I’d give this product a 3/5 only because of it’s color ingenuity. Otherwise, it’s nothing special.

Candy lips for warm skin tones

This color is a medium candy pink which is not sheer but is build-able. The only drawback is that it is drying and you need to exfoliate and prime your lips before using this product otherwise it will get into fine lines. It’s not too tacky but it is very girly and flirty if that’s the look you’re going for.

Why: It can be drying. Moisturizer or primer needs to be used for smooth application. Vibrant color, fruity scent.

Perfect Red Lips For Any Skin Tone

I’ve struggled with finding the perfect shade of red for years. Sometimes its difficult deciding whether you are a warm tone or a cool tone. So, after a great hunt, I found a shade which is not only versatile, but also affordable and smooth!

I present you with Rimmel 01 by Kate Moss:

Rimmel-Kate-moss-lipstick-10Rating: 5/5

Why? Because it’s everything you want in a lipstick. Creamy, rich in color, lasting color. The color does fade over time especially after a meal but for the price, it’s well worth it.

Price: $4.99-8.99

Protect your hair from heat damage

I’ve been using this product on and off for the past 3 years. It’s a oil-based product but spritz just enough based on your hair’s thickness and it will give you an amazing shine after using a flat iron.

They can be found at Sally’s beauty supply for $12-13. A little goes a long way and my bottle usually lasts up to 16 months. This product will make your hair get greasy if you use too much but it WILL actually protect your hair – that I can say with confidence.

Rating: 4/5

Why? Because it is grease-prone and without practice you can easily look like a grease-pit even with freshly washed hair.

Tip: Look for deals. I currently purchased a new bottle with a BOGO promo.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick 260 Amethyst Shimmer

Extremely silky. I’ve been wearing it for 4 hours and it’s still on.
It will come off easily for example when you eat.
I see this lipstick finishing really fast as you will have to reapply it when it smudges off.
It’s very creamy so you may have to use a lip liner with it. Lip primer is optional. Be careful because it can go on your teeth.

The color is build-able. I opted for a lighter application to add a hint of color to my lips and it doesn’t look overly done at all.
