It’s shaping up to be a very, very busy week here at MM central (lest you think MM central is a fancy place of work, allow me to crush that fantasy by telling you that it’s essentially half a dorm room, my laptop, and an always-full mug of caffeine), so I’ve had to put several reviews on the back burner for now. While I would love to tell you about this gorgeous eggshell nail polish I’m newly obsessed with (it’s pink! I hate pink polish, so this is huge) and the skincare product which has made pretty much everything else in my stash obsolete, I have to prioritize. There are few instances in my life where lipstick comes last, but with all the midterms to study for, proposals to write, and job assignments to cover, the time and energy I normally reserve for blogging has gone straight to praying for my survival.
Fortunately, I’m not totally unprepared for situations like this. While I’m not enough of an über-blogger to have a week’s worth backup reviews and tutorials on hold, I do have some tidbits to share, thanks to my recent obsession with creating product spreads (ah, the times in life when playing with makeup pays off). The newest fragrance on my radar is Victoria’s Secret Fabulous, which like almost all things the company does, is pink and pretty and sounds fabulously wearable. Described as a “freshly vibrant” scent, it’s “anchored by the sparkling trio of Juicy Currant, Osmanthus Blossom and Pink Freesia.” Fabulous sounds exactly like what I need right now.
I don’t mention VS fragrances on the blog nearly as much as Ellis Faas eyeshadows or Liz Earle skincare, but they’re my go-to for everyday scents. I find they strike a nice balance between fruity and floral without ever veering into cheap body spray territory, and people always tell me I smell nice whenever I’m wearing them. If you follow me on twitter, you may have heard me crying cyber-tears over my almost finished sample of Bombshell in Love, which was LE for Valentine’s 2012. I’m hoping Fabulous will replace it as my new everyday fragrance. Maybe this time I’ll have the foresight to snag a full bottle.
And yes, there are 19th century Russian peasants in the background of my twitpic. See? School is always on my mind.
