Review: ByTerry Baume de Rose

The other day I got an email from beauty.com saying I was one of five winners of  their weekly facebook giveaway and I would be receiving a BY TERRY Baume de Rose . I was beyond excited as I had been wanting to try this balm for over a year but could not get myself to buy it as it retails for almost $60.

Now that I have used it for a few days I can review it. The packaging is cute but elegant and refined. A 10g / 0.35 oz. pot  in a pink and silver box contains a multi-protective, nutri regenerating SPF 15 balm with a subtle rose scent that you can use on your lips or your cuticles as the instructions say.

I love the consistency, smell, packaging, everything but the price. I really like the way my lips feel and you only have to apply it a few times a day. They also have a BY TERRY Baume de Rose Crystalline Bottle which I think its more practical for on the go.

I think now that I have tried it I won't be able to use other balms so I am pretty sure I will be splurging on this from time to time as I think a pot will last a few months. The good thing was that I got to try it before having to buy it so had I not liked it I wouldn't have been disappointed.



PS If you are curious.. I am wearing the mint nail polish from my previous blogspot http://capripor.blogspot.com/2011/05/mark-summer-nail-polishes.html

Obsessing Over: Lace

Lace

Lace by capripor

I have been obsessing over lace pieces for a while now and I actually own a couple of lace tops. Most of the lace pieces I'm drawn to are cream or white but there are also some really cute black and colored pieces that I like.

My favorite thing about lace pieces is how femenine and refined they are; even if you wear one that is not expensive you will look like a million bucks. They are also really versatile as you can wear the same piece during the day or night just by changing the accesories.

Mark Summer Nail Polishes

I recently placed my first ever order from Mark and I absolutely love the mini nail polishes I got. They come in sets of two and they have the season's trediest colors in mini bottles so you can try the colors without having to purchase a full bottle that you'll probably never finish; plus you get to try out two colors not just one. For the summer, they have the Ibiza collection and the nail polish colors are: an intensly deep coral red and a refreshing pastel minty green. I tried the coral one this past weekend an I love it! The picture is of two coats plus a Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.


The pictures above are the box in which the polishes come and the cutest little bottles!
