Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter

*Disclaimer: I received this item for free in exchange for my review. This in no way has influenced my opinion.*

Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter
Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter
 This exclusive melting body butter from the rare Honey of the Black Bees combined with Royal Jelly, is a true youth-elixir. It nourishes the skin, leaving it pleasantly scented with the sensual notes of Honey and Oriental woods. Perfect to protect the skin from cold in winter and also ideal to help soothe and protect the skin after sun exposure.


Let me start off by saying this is very generously sized! You can size how big it is in the photo above. You get 6.7 fl oz! This body butter definitely has a distinctive smell. It reminds me of some sort of baked good or cocktail. I just can't decide which. You can definitely pick up the honey smell though.

The consistency is very thick but it glides on smoothly. A little bit of this goes a long way and with the container being so huge, one tub should last a long long time.

The desert is normally really dry and wrecks your skin. The desert in winter time is exceedingly dry! I found the Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter to be very moisturizing and long lasting. This is the first product from Perlier that I've tried and I love it.

You can purchase this at HSN for $40. Use the code iFabbo5 to save $5.00 on your purchase.

Bat's Rating 9: Glides on smoothly, long lasting moisturizing, generously sized. The scent could be off putting for some.

EOTD: MUG Shadows Las Vegas Belly Dance Intensive 2013 Solo

Hello Lovelies! I always intend to take pics of my performance looks and then I get pressed for time and have to get my butt in gear. Sunday I performed my solo at the Las Vegas Belly Dance Intensive and I had plenty of time to get ready. I left my house with part of my makeup done. I didn't want to walk through the Flamingo Hotel & Casino with full on stage makeup. So I added more blush and did my lips once I got there.

MUG eyeshadows
Featuring Makeup Geek Eyeshadows. I didn't realize my brows needed so much work till I saw this picture. doh!
I didn't sit down and intentionally use only Makeup Geek Eyeshadows but it just happened that all of the colors I was looking for were MUG.

The MUG shadows are great quality and a tremendous value. I purchased The Starter Kit ($49.99) when they first came out. It comes with nine pans neutral and some purples with both matte and shimmery shades. Three of the shadows I used came out of the Starter Kit. Vanilla Bean is the only one I purchased separately.

If you're interested in the whole look or my dance, check out the video (better in HD)! The LVBDI is the biggest event of the year for our belly dance community. Dancers come from all over the world for classes and performances.
