The Lipstick League Question of the Week
If you purchased any beauty products over the holidays (those sales!), how are those products working for you now that you've had them for a few weeks?
G's answer: I'm ashamed to say that many of the products I purchased for myself over the holidays are still in their packaging, awaiting some play time (but that's only because I'm busy testing other products for review on the blog right now). One item that I have opened and used is Femme Rochas perfume, which I purchased at Target when they were having that sale and discount code a while back. I had been wanting that perfume ever since I read the reviews on Fragrantica, but it was a complete fail for me. Sadly, there's a cumin note in that perfume that is very pronounced on my skin, and it gives the overall fragrance a strong "body odor" note on me. I'm so bummed, because I know that fragrance works quite well for others. With my body chemistry, it's a disaster.
