Tiffany Rose Gold EDP


New from Tiffany & Co. is Rose Gold EDP.

It's sparkly, fruity and light  . You get blackcurrant right off , it reminds me a bit of a bubbly sweet rosé like the old Asti Spumantes I drank as a young adult. Then you have musk and woods start coming in with a soft , non powdery dry rose . This could be the iris note but I really don't smell much iris to be honest. Musk and ambrette  are the drydown and it's very musky , light musks nothing heavy .

Overall this isn't anything unique , it's the Tiffany association that people will go for and I have no problem with that.  It's pretty , light and easy to wear if not unlike something else you've sniffed. I can think of many people I know who'd be thrilled with it for a gift.
My favorite Tiffany remains the unfortunately named &Love For Her,  cool cologne like citrus floral.

Something else fun is if you buy Rose Gold from Tiffany's you can have the bottle engraved.

Tiffany Rose Gold is $ 108  for 1.7 oz 

Maybelline The Colossal Long Wear Mascara


Maybelline generally new rocks the mascara game and their newest is The Colossal long wear. I  have the waterproof version because my eyes often laugh at "long wear ". I need super durable mascara. The Colossal has a large wide spoolie (mega on the packaging) and the formula is thick but not overly wet or gloppy. I like that. It adds volume and length with 1 coat but 2 gives much more of both and it is buildable without looking spidery. I've done 3 coats with no problem. It is definitely long wear, going all day with no smudge ,runs etc. The claim is 36 hr wear but I don't know about that. I haven't tried keeping it in that long , wash your face every night peeps.

By late night it's worn off some ,still there but not as "new" looking. It removes easily with cold cream but doesn't wash off . It really holds onto lashes. Again though non waterproof might be different.

Solid winner for me and I've given one to The Mom and she really likes it too. If you need long wear with a big lash look The Colossal has got it.
