Fragrance Friday - Nanette Lepore.

585248-1383973-thumbnail.jpgWhen I wear Nanette Lepore, I sometimes think that I am a grown up Eloise.

Now living at the Plaza, wearing chic, yet fun clothes, prancing around Central Park in May. With the sun shining, I think that I have bathed in this fragrance before dancing through the flowers. Eloise would have.

Can you imagine? Then you can imagine this wonderfully romantic, yet fun and flirty fragrance, Nanette Lepore.

The fragrance opens with moonstone rose, white peach, and white cranberry juices. With middle notes of black currant, orange jasmine, and Persian lime nectar, it is warm and sensual. The black currant smells so nice on me. As the scent dries down, I am left with the sweet smell of violet.

Yes - light, springy, warm and sunny.

With Gianni Mastrocola, master perfumer, Nanette's whimsical spirit is brought to life through the fragrance.

Nanette Lepore Eau de Parfum Spray is available in both a 3.4 ($78) and 1.7 ($58) ounce size.

Feeling - Dirty plum with silver pearl

Joyous is such a beautiful shade to be worn with beautiful brown and neutral colored eye shades. This one was my first pick and certainly did not disappoint. True Romantic is the perfect companion to the dark gray or blue smokey eye.  I think I am most unexpectedly intrigued with Serenely and how it looks like I just took a brisk walk, yet better.

Of course, the perfect brush to apply the blush is a must-have. Choose from 169 Angled Blush Brush or 116 Blush Brush. Each one is $32 and makes applying the powder perfectly, each and every time.

Beauty Powder Blush is $17.50 per shade, and is on counter at MAC and maccosmetics.com.

Go Anywhere with Prescriptives!

Are you a sucker for the buy one get one free sales, or two for ones? I sure am. I wonder if Prescriptives had this in mind when creating their new Anywhere Multi-Purpose Makeup Stick. Why, you ask? Because for $35 you get two portable sticks.

How convenient.

With a long-wearing formula and SPF 15, I would love to try this. Available in 24 shades to boot!
