Fragrance Fanatic: Taylor by Taylor Swift "Made of Starlight"

 Affiliate Link Press Sample

It is time for another update in my Fragrance Fanatic series!!! I adore trying out new scents. I am especially excited to share Taylor by Taylor Swift "Made of Starlight"!

I just adore Taylor. She is so talented and beautiful! So, of course I am super excited to try out her new (and affordable!) scent. I am actually already a huge fan of Taylor's perfumes (Her Wonderstruck scent is one of my go-to favorites!).
Taylor by Taylor Swift "Made of Starlight" 
If you are a fan of very light and fresh smelling floral scents, then I think you are going to love this! To me, it is a lovely everyday type scent. It is feminine and fresh without smelling overly sweet or too "young". When the scent hits me, I immediately notice the tangerine scent which is mixed with floral notes. As it lingers I notice a soft woodsy scent. I really adore this fragrance!

While this is a nice scent for right now, I think I will *adore* this scent even more in the Summer months!

Fragrance Notes:
  • Top- lychee, tangerine and magnolia petals
  • Heart- peony, hydrangea and vanilla orchid
  • Base- sandalwood, apricot nectar, cashmere musk, and soft woods
Are you curious to try Taylor by Taylor Swift? If so, be sure to scope it out next time you are at Target! It is a Target exclusive scent!

What's in Marcia's Purse? How does someone fit everything they need on a daily basis into a small crossbody bag? Marcia from Beauty Info Zone normally shleps around a large shoulder bag to handle all the goodies that are a necessity for daily life. But sometimes fashion takes preference over need and she switches to a small, neat bag. How does she do it?

My Skin Loves: Kate Somerville Dermal Quench Liquid Lift

 Affiliate Link Press Sample

It is time for another update in my "My Skin Loves" blog series. "My Skin Loves" is where I share my very favorite skincare products: my "Holy Grails" of skincare! :) This time, I am sharing an old favorite that has made its way back into my skincare routine!

As you all may know,  I have a bit of a love-affair with Kate Somerville's line of skincare products! With awards season, you often hear celebrities mentioning Kate Somerville. Using Kate Somerville skincare is one of Hollywood's best kept secrets about looking good for the red carpet! With the way that this particular product seems to "erase" wrinkles, I am not at all surprised by that fact! Seriously, this product literally smooths out my fine lines in minutes! There is absolutely nothing else that I have ever used that works quite like this product. 
I was first introduced to this product over a year ago when I was watching a QVC special with Kate Somerville. I watched Kate demonstrate Dermal Quench and I was completely amazed. You literally spray it on and as it absorbs it plumps your skin and smooths out your fine lines and wrinkles. It makes them almost dissapear! So, ya'll know that I just had to try it out! This product is an old favorite and I have recently come back to using it and can't believe that I ever stopped!!! As a beauty blogger, I am often rotating products and trying new things to review here on the blog. So, it is a major treat when I cycle back to a favorite product like Dermal Quench Liquid Lift from Kate Somerville!

Honestly, I have never tried anything else quite like this product! The results are almost instantaneous and have such an amazing visual impact! You seriously just need to try it to believe it. It will erase or lessen your wrinkles just a few minutes after application.

Now, you might be thinking "You don't have wrinkles Pammy!". Well, no, I really don't. However, I do have some fine lines around my eyes that look much more prominent when my skin is dehydrated. This unique Dermal Quench spray completely obliterates those. I often surprise people when they hear my age. I am 40 years old and honestly happy to report that I don't look it. When I first meet people at parties and get-tethers and they find out my age...they will often jokingly want to know my "secret" to looking young. This product is one of those secrets! I almost always use Dermal Quench before nights out and date night. :) A spray of Dermal Quench before applying makeup smooths out those fine lines beautifully for beautiful smooth skin on nights out!
My Skin:
I have sensitive combination skin. I have that unique problem of skin that needs anti-aging components yet also can be prone to breaking out (if I am not careful in my product selection). While I do not have any major wrinkles (yet!), I would like to take whatever action that I can to prevent them! 

To find out more details about Kate Somerville's amazing DermalQuench Liquid Lift and how I use it, please keep reading!

Fragrance Fanatic: Killer Queen by Katy Perry

 Affiliate Link Press Sample

My Fragrance Fanatic review series continues with Katy Perry's Killer Queen Eau de Parfum! If you are a Katy Perry fan, or just someone looking for a new fun and flirty everyday fragrance, then you certainly need to check out Killer Queen! 
The Bottle:
There is no question that this whimsical perfume bottle will catch your eye. The jewel-shaped bottle, inspired by a Queen's scepter, lays on its side. While the bottle is pretty for display on my vanity, it does not fit on my perfume tray with my other bottles because of needing to lay on its side. So, a cute design overall. However, it does present a storage issue as far as not fitting on my tray.

The Scent:
  • Top Notes: Dark Plum, Wild Berry, Bergamot
  • Middle Notes: Natural Jasmine Sambac, Rainbow Plumeria, Red Velvet Flower
  • Base Notes: Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart, Liquid Praline
Overall, I am a huge fan of Katy Perry's Killer Queen! It is an easy-to-wear scent that is fun to wear. I like that this scent is not overly young, nor too sweet. It is actually a rather "grown up" and sophisticated scent! There is a warm and subtle woodsiness to it with the blend of patchouli, vanilla, and musk. It is actually the exact type of scent that I like to wear! I love warm musky scents! :)
