Ariana Grande’s Cloud Perfume Review // Blogtober #10

Hey everyone!

This is a bit of a spur of the moment post, but I thought it would make for some cool content since I think I’m a beauty guru every now and again. I bought the Ariana Grande Cloud perfume and I wanted to write a review for you guys.

I got this perfume because I saw her posting about it on her social media and was super intrigued by the way the scent was described. I wasn’t planning on buying it because I didn’t think I would like it. Usually, when I read about a scent online I always think I will like it but then when I actually smell it it’s not at all like the description.

I went to my local pharmacy that sells perfumes in hopes that it would be there. She was promoting it on an online website, but I had a feeling we would sell it at this drug store. It was a bit expensive online with shipping and customs, so I wanted to make sure I liked it first. Luckily enough and to my surprise, they did have the perfume. It smells amazing!

It smells soothing. There are notes of lavender which has soothing properties. Lavender is known to help people that suffer for anxiety and that is one of the big reasons by I wanted to check out the perfumes. I find this perfume is super relaxing and helps with my anxiety when I wear it. I also find it super fitting that her perfume does that. She has mentioned that she has been suffering with anxiety so maybe there is a connection. It is 100% possible though that it’s just a coincidence. There are also hints of bergamot, pear, coconut, and vanilla. I hate vanilla I’ve said this on multiple occasions, but I feel like it’s not overpowering and really blends well with the scent.

What’s also super cool about the perfume is that it came with a free gift. Now, usually, a free gift to me is not that cool. They’re kind of garbage most of the time. Well, I am pleased to say that the gift was not garbage! It was this super cute white and sheep texture backpack. I found it was super fitting with the perfume being called Cloud and all. Usually, her free gifts are headbands with ears on it which was the old era. The backpack is super cute and really good quality. I will be for sure using it as a purse since it’s meant to be tiny.

My final thoughts are that the perfume smells incredible. I love the scent. I also super love the packaging and the fact that it comes with a really cool free gift. It also wears for a long time and there’s a lot of product for what you are paying. I’m interested to find out if the soothing scent was intentional or not. I would try to tweet her about it, but the chances of an answer are very slim. So, if anyone knows if it’s true or not I would love to know.

Has anyone tried this perfume yet? If so I would love to hear your thoughts.

See you guys tomorrow.

Bath and Body Works Haul / Fall 2018 // Blogtober Day #3

Hey everyone!

I’ve done it again…ought way too much Bath and Body Works! I know, I know it’s a problem. I promise that this is not sponsored. It would be fantastic if they wanted to sponsor me with how much I buy their products but alas no luck. Since fall as rolled around, I needed to get my hands on their new stuff. I had over 2000$ of their stuff in my cart online. I decided to go in-store and check it out in person. I’m a bit picky when it comes to scents during this time because I hate vanilla! Vanilla always seems to be a fall scent that is overused. I hate vanilla so much I think I have a trauma associated with it or something.

Unfourtantly, I was a bit disappointed in the selection at my local Bath and Body Works. They didn’t have everything on the website. Also, most of the scents were vanilla based, yuck! It didn’t help I had a bad cold and couldn’t smell very well. The employees, though I know it’s their job, but they were extremely pushy. I hate more than anything in the world when employees try to put products on you. I don’t want it! I have sensitive skin. Though I never get reactions from their products I’d rather be the one that makes the decision on what goes on my skin. It’s as if they have no concept of allergies.

Anyways, enough with that and on to the haul. I only picked up 5 things and it cost me like 80$! I got the whole pumpkin picking collection so the cream, shower gel and perfume. I also got the pumpkin enzyme gel moisturizer and the thousand years candle.

The pumpkin picking collection smells so good. It was the only one that smelt the least of vanilla or something I already had. I really wanted something that smelt of pumpkin. I love pumpkin and feel it is super fall. I believe I’ve mentioned this before in my Zoella Beauty 2018 Christmas Collection video, I associate different scents for different seasons. This collection is perfect for the fall time.

The pumpkin enzyme gel moisturizer is the best thing I’ve ever put on my skin. It just feels so good and makes my skin feel so soft. It’s even better than their usual creams. It kinda has a weird look to it that makes you think it’s not a lotion but it is. At first, I was scared it would be sticky because it looks exactly like caramel. It seeps right into the skin hydrating immediately. A lot of people say that it smells of sweet pumpkin but I feel like it smells more of apples and pumpkins.

I own the thousand years perfume and I have adored it for a very long time. It used to be my go to before I got Rose, which has been mentioned in like 5 monthly favourites. When my boyfriend picked up the candle and said he liked it, I knew I had to get it. It smells incredible and just warms up the whole room. I hope that the candle stays around because it is quickly becoming one of my favourites.

So this was my haul. Have you guys picked up any of the new Bath and Body Works products? If so which ones are your favourite? If not did you want to check them out? Let me know, I would love to hear from you guys.

First Review of Zoella Beauty Christmas Collection!

Hey everyone!

So I am finally early to the party. I get to blog about some products before the hype has really picked up. I am feeling on top of the world because I haven’t seen a lot of posts or YouTube videos about the new Zoella Beauty collection! That is just crazy to me. Usually, I see a lot of posts when Zoe comes out with new products. I have a feeling it has to do with the fact that she hasn’t been as present on social media as of late and has said she is not feeling too good about her channel.

All that aside, I love Zoella Beauty. I don’t know if that is a bias because I love Zoe and have been following her for a long time. Though I’m not a huge fan of her body washes, they left me pretty dry. (I have a full blog post all about that HERE). I do absolutely love her body creams though. They aren’t sticky, they smell great and I feel hydrated after using them.

So that is why I was super excited to see that her whole Christmas line was on FeelUnique.com. You can get both the things I bought HERE and HERE! I bought two of her gift sets wanting all of them but knowing that I shouldn’t. I have enough body cream and I don’t have a bath in my current place so I couldn’t get any bath stuff. So I stuck with perfumes. I really have been wanting to try all of the scents from all of her collections but it was super hard to find, living here in Canada.

I have a full review of all the products up on my YouTube Channel!! If you want to hear more about what I have to say about the products you can watch my video down below. (SPOILER!! I’m super in love with what I bought!)

My Everyday Summer Makeup Look – Day #8

Hey everyone!

I am no beauty guru. I am actually shit at makeup if you haven’t seen my Blogmas post. I love makeup put for whatever reason I just can’t perform. I also don’t super follow beauty trends. I just wear what I like.

IMG-1736

Okay, I lied. I follow one trend and it’s the brands that beauty gurus use. I bought a Fenty Beauty concealer in the shade Bamboo. I gave it an awesome review here. I also have the Naked 2 palette.

All the products I used for this look are cruelty-free. I am a strong believer in using cruelty-free products. I don’t understand how you can test a product on an animal. It’s not fair to them and it’s just so evil.

I like to keep my makeup light. I don’t like when I have heavy makeup on during the summer. I know it comes off anyway. I do the same smokey slash brown eye-defying look.

I use the shades Tease and Busted in the crease and then Half Baked all over the lid and corner. I use the Naked 2 pallette for this. You can get it here. I feel like these colours really play off my eye colour. I then use just an Elf mascara. It’s funny that this 3$ mascara is one of the best mascara’s I used. I just think it lifts my lashes and keeps them separated. I highly recommend elf mascara if you are looking for something cheap.

I’ve talked about this liquid lip on multiple occasions. This is my go to and it has been for months now. I got it for Christmas and I swear I have used it every day since. I just love how creamy and beautiful The Body Shop’s liquid lips are. They go on so easy and stay for hours. Again I highly recommend if you’re looking for something that is cruelty-free and you know will be a staple in your makeup collection.

Fenty Beauty is one of my go-to concealers if I want something light and to just colour correct my skin. The colour is an exact colour match for my tan during the summer. I’d have to buy something lighter for the winter season. You can get it here if you still haven’t tried it yet.

I know I’m not exactly the best beauty guru or blogger. I just enjoy playing around with makeup and for me, that is enough.
