FOTD & Another Amazing Swap

I'm sure you have heard that Hawaii doesn't have Bath & Body Works AND Victoria Secret's store yet and I'm done feeling sorry for myself (lol) So I started to swap some of the scents I thought I might like, again, I can't sniff since there's no store to go to.

Remember I swapped and got myself Bath & Body Works Iced Tea Twist lotion? yeah...turned out my skin doesn't really like the scent so I put that one on swap. A person contacted me because she's interested on swapping, and long story short, we agreed on swapping with her Victoria's Secret Vanilla Lace Body Splash.

I have heard mix opinion on this scent, some think it's too plain, some adore it, so I gave myself a try.

Today the goodies came and I'm SUPER excited when I saw extras she included.

Extra: Lumiere Veena blush in Earth

and The Bonne Bell Smackers in Berry Sundae

Today I've exclusively been wearing Vanilla Lace and I am really liking it. It's more than just a Vanilla because I can smell Orchids, Musk and other lovely florals in it. The dry down is even better, a musky soft Vanilla that is not overly sweet.

Another thing I love about it, is that you can't overdone the scent, I've been spraying like crazy today, and the scent remains soft & not sickly overpowering.

Ssstttt I have Bath & Body Works Fresh Vanilla on the way from another swap, so stay tune for a comparison~

Lumiere blush is LOVE, I knew this already but I was still excited because I wanted to get Earth so badly, just never got around it. It's a gorgeous terracota color on my skin.

Bonne Bell Smackers is also great, we don't have it here in HI so I was really excited to try it out. The scent is a delicious berry, it's rather sour candy-ish berry and very fruity. I tried it on and omg, it made my lips so soft! I would definitely get more if they were around.

So here's my last FOTDs, they were taken at the same day, only one is with flash.
