Winter seemed interminable this year, didn't it? We practically need a beauty shop-sesh to recover! So the Lipstick League wants to know: what's on your Spring beauty-stuff wish list (so far)?
At the moment I think I'm set for most beauty-things Spring. But I've been longing for a new bottle of Le Labo Bergamote 22 forever. I finished my bottle – that's it up there, when it was born at 6 by Gee Beauty back in 20-freakin'-11 – about a year or two ago, and elected not to splurge on a replacement right away. (It lasted beautifully well past the 2012 "expiration" date – I keep all my fragrances in a cool dark place known as my bedroom. *grin*)
Although it's technically unisex, Le Labo Bergamote 22 (from $170 CAD at 6bygeebeauty.com and $180 USD at saksfifthavenue.com) is one of the most feminine scents I can wear well. A vibrant blend that includes grapefruit (love) and vetiver (adore), as well as a dash of petit grain for a light floral hit, this is actually one of my all-time favourite perfumes. It's expensive, hence the years-long wait to re-up, but it's time. And I'm so happy thinking about it! #worththesplurge
