Perfume Samples Project Pan Final Update

Hi friends!! I'm very excited to be posting my final update for my perfume sample project pan! I apologize for the lack of consistent updates (my last update was in July), but I have been consistently using my samples. I have completely finished up five samples and made great progress on quite a few!
Let's begin with the samples I have completely finished:

-Peace, Love & Juicy Couture by Juicy Couture
-Pure by DKNY (X 2)
-Candy by Prada
-Cherry in the Air by Escada

Next are the samples I made good progress on but haven't finished:
From left:
-Miss Dior by Christian Dior
-Pivoine Flora by L'Occitane
-Honey by Marc Jacobs

-Euphoria by Calvin Klein (X 2)
-Lovestruck by Vera Wang
-Oh, Lola! by Marc Jacobs
-White Musk by the Body Shop

Finally here are the samples which I barely used. To be completely honest, I have not used Infusion d'Iris by Prada one single time... I just don't like the smell. I'm going to toss it! I will continue to work on the rest of the perfumes I have left.

OOTD: Smells like Spring

Hi lovelies! Happy Sunday! Spring is still a full month away, but this weekend has been super sunny and the mountains of snow are beginning to melt. Yesterday I was at work all day, so today I made sure I got outside and went for a nice long walk with Simon. I thought it was a great opportunity to wear my new light parka from Forever 21, which I got on clearance for 33 bucks!

 
The sun was totally in my eyes, oh well what can you do? Outfit details:
Parka: Forever 21
T-shirt: H&M
Jeans: Urban Planet
Boots: Riverland

Hope you all enjoy the last few hours of the weekend! Thanks for stopping by :)

Julep Orbital Eyeshadow in Zenith

 
Hi lovelies! Today I'm sharing my thoughts on the Julep Orbital eyeshadow in Zenith. It's a gorgeous cooper brown packed with gold glitter flecks. The packaging is very chic. I love that it has a built-in mirror! To obtain maximum impact, I find it's best to apply Zenith by gently tapping it on my eyelid with a brush, while avoiding swirling motions. Unfortunately, Zenith creates a lot of fallout.... but babyyyy, that glitter! The gold flecks catch the light and give your my eyes dimension. I kept the look simple by layering Julep over a nude eyeshadow that I applied all over as base.
Products used: 
-Hard Candy Eyes The Limit eyeshadow primer
-Estee Lauder eyeshadow in Waves
-Julep Orbital eyeshadow in Zenith 
-Estee Lauder Double Wear mascara

Have you tried any makeup products from Julep? Thanks for reading! xo
