Fragrant Friday - Hugo Boss The Scent

The newest fragrance from Hugo Boss reveals a different side to the Boss Man that pays tribute to his personal achievements with:

Hugo Boss The Scent - 50ml EDT - $78, 100ml EDT - $100 - the scent begins with a spicy top note of ginger; a sensual heart of Aphrodisiac maninka fruit from Africa - evocative of passion fruit and rum is mixed with tones of lavender; and a base of intensive leather accord that  symbolizes magnetic masculinity.
I like this fragrance because it smells like something a MAN would wear - this isn't some kinda girly unisex nonsense, it's a manly man scent - the kind of thing that men who chop wood, change their own oil and would rather die then wear skinny jeans would put on - I approve!

Available at Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Sephora, Nordstrom, Murale, London Drugs, Jean Coutu and Hugo Boss Boutiques.

Great Gifting - Delectable Mix and Mingle Coconut & Cream Gift Set

 I love holiday sets because not only do they make good gifts, they are great for stocking up for yourself - you can't beat the price so if it's a product you normally use, buy 3 sets and you are set for the year at a significant discount!

Delectable Mix and Mingle Coconut & Cream - $19.99 - includes full sized bottles of Extremely Rich Body Wash - 236ml, Triple Moisture Body Lotion - 236ml and Radiance Boosting Hair & Body Mist - 120ml. - that will all add a bit of moisture to your skin thanks to shea butter, coconut oil and aloe vera and won't add any of the bad stuff since it's free of all the crap you don't want like parabens, mineral oil, phthalates etc. And FYI, it's not an overpowering coconut scent - more cream then coconut - I'm not a fan of most coconut scents but I like this one!

Available now for a limited time exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart.

NYC New York Color Cityproof Extended Wear Lipgloss - with swatches!

NYC New York Color Cityproof Extended Wear Lipgloss - $2.99 - in 10 shades: Everlasting Blossom, Blush Forever, Perpetually Hot Pink, Cherry Ever After, Midnight Rose, 24/7 Lilac, Mauving All Night, Gold With Me, Freeze Mauve and Ruby Pink - with high shine and serious staying power, up to 8 hours!
Everlasting Blossom
Ruby Pink

You can't beat the price - it's only downfall, as I would probably point out with any long wear gloss regardless of the how expensive it is or not - yes this one lasts but you can't have a gloss that stays without stickiness - the stick is what keeps it there!

Available now exclusively at Walmart stores across Canada.

And if that's not enough, the formula is enriched with an exclusive Sexy-Boosting Blend made up of cocoa extract - to help enhance feelings of attraction, excitement and euphoria and horny goatweed - an aphrodisiac that restores sexual fire and has a seductive fragrance of vanilla an musk to make you feel more sensual!

Available at drug and mass retailers across Canada.
CoverGirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner in Extreme Black - $9.99 - offers the control of a pencil with the intensity of a liquid eyeliner for beautifully defined with an all-new paddle-shaped tip that gives you two looks in one - thick and dramatic or thin and elegant. The intense black formula glides on smoothly and dries quickly for instant drama.

Available at drug and mass retailers across Canada.

And for everyone (including me) that finds liquid liner challenging to apply, CoverGirl offers 4 easy steps to the perfect application:

Step 1:
Stand 6 inches away from a mirror and tilt your chin up, so that when you look down your nose into the mirror, you can see your entire eyelid. Dab concealer or dust translucent powder on your upper lids. Blend well with a sponge or lightly pat with a fingertip to cover veins and prevent creasing.

Step 2:
Before applying liner, determine your eye shape. If eyes are close-set or round, line only the outer corners. Otherwise, line the entire upper lid.

Step 3:
Gently pull your eyelid taut at an upward angle. Beginning at the inner corner, draw small, connected dashes along the top lashes. Be sure to stay close to the roots so there is no skin visible between the lashes and the liner. To make eyes look bigger, extend the liner slightly beyond the outer corners.

Step 4:
Use a cotton swab to fix mistakes. For larger messes, dip it in makeup remover.
