Indian Vanity Case - "The Lord Of The Rings"

Here is the look that I did for the contest featured at Indian Vanity Case!
Hope you like it!!!

The name of the look is "The Lord of the Rings" because I'm a huuuuuge fan and I'd been wanting to do a dark forest green and gold look for a while...and I copied some of Tolkien's elven script!!!
The quality of the image is not too great, I know; unfortunately I still have a rather crappy camera! Sorry!

Here it is:

Lush Honeytrap (Gustami!) and None Of Your Beeswax (Usami!)

Ah, Lush! I SO wanted to love you...but here's the thing. Everytime I enter a Lush shop I honestly think I'm going to die because of the overpowering smells.
But I was so attracted to Lush lip balms that I really wanted to try them...did these pass the test?
Read on to find out!

Ah Lush! Volevo proprio sai cosa? Ogni volta che entro in un negozio Lush la combinazione di tutti i profumi è quasi letale per me!
Ma ero così attratta dai burrocacao Lush che dovevo assolutamente provarli! Hanno passato il test? Leggete per scoprirlo!

Fitocose - Vanilla Scented Water

I know..I've been missing for a while! But I'm back, tired and sleepy but here...although this will be a short(ish) review because i REALLY need to sleep!
Onto serious stuff!
I love perfumes...I really do...
Or at least I used to.
Thing is, I can't wear them anymore because of my allergies; the alcohol in particular irritates the hell out of me and gives me migrains. So what's a girl to do?
I started my search for "scented waters", lighter perfumes which don't linger as much and tend to fade very quickly. I know the fading is a turn off for most of you but I really don't like a scent which starts off strongly and stays strong for the whole day...nightmare!
Unfortunately, most scented waters guessed it, alcohol. So they're really just lighter perfumes...which annoy me just as much as the "real" perfumes. 
That is, until I came across Fitocose....
