Review on Relaxing Aromatherapuetic Scents: CalloftheVialed

In all honesty, I’ve never been into perfume. I find that I get dizzy, after wearing very powerful scents, and I usually only wear perfume when I’m going to a wedding or a fancy dinner. With that said, I have been trying to find a cruelty free perfume that is decently priced. Because you know I’m on that budget life, and I blame college loans for this. Anyway, I tried out the CalloftheVialed, because I saw it on laurasnaturallife instagram. I think she has great advice on beauty, and I decided to try this out. I also found out that the company CalloftheVialed is in Berkely, CA, and I’m also from the Bay Area so I wanted to support the company. I bought the sample set which was $16, but $20 with tax and shipping. It’s still not that expensive compared to the perfume aisle in Macy’s, but I kind of felt like it was expensive. I think I’d prefer to spend $20 on a mascara or foundation instead, honestly.

Okay first off, these scents are vegan aromatherapeutic scents, so think earthy relaxing scents. The first one I will review is called Vialed Flower Parfum Pur. It is the strongest scent out of the four. It does smell musky to me with hints of lavendar, and the wearability doesn’t last long. I think they all make you feel relaxed, so they are good for those stressful days when you need to keep it together. All the perfumes go on like oils, and they aren’t sticky at all. They blend with your skin nicely.

The Vialed Dream scent has juniper, and lavendar in it. I like the name of it, because it makes me think that I can put this on before I sleep and I will fall asleep right away. Which I probably could, but I usually fall asleep right when my head reaches the pillow anyway. I think this would be a good scent to put on after a shower, and let your body ease into relaxation.

The Vialed Hush perfume is subtle. It is my second favorite, because it isn’t too strong. It has hints of sandalwood, and thyme.

Last is Vialed Momentum. It has tangerine, grapefruit, and lime oil, and it is my #1 favorite. I also think it is subtle like Hush, but I like the citrus smell. It makes me feel like I’m in a garden. It also makes me feel invigorating. I put this one on when I went to work, and I felt more energized to work. I would consider buying this scent or Hush, but I will definitely try to get my money’s worth with the samples first.

Love is that gushy feeling when you eat a pepperoni pizza

One of the topics I want to talk about on this blog, that is important to me is love. The blog is called Roses and Amor, because it is a play on my name. Also amor translates to love from Spanish (FYI). The main purpose of this blog is to share with you my cruelty free makeup products, but on a more real depth, I think it is important to share and talk about love. For me I love food, and I love to read, and write. I want to spread the love, because I think it is truly important, especially in this world right now.

The first thing that is important is to determine what love is. To me it’s that gushy feeling I feel when I see pizza or my boyfriend (insert smiley emoji with two heart eyes). According to google the definition of love is (noun): an intense feeling of deep affection. I think this is kind of coincidental because when I say that I love a product, for instance the Colourpop highlighter in Wisp, it’s because I have a intense feeling about it, and I keep reaching and using it. One of the reasons I think I love wearing makeup, is because I feel more special and kind of impressed with myself. Like not only did I get up today, and do my makeup, but I know that I love myself, and I want to inspire others to love who they are too. So in terms of loving yourself, I want to say to my readers that you should write down everything that you love. It could be pizza or your pet, but it’s important to share what you love and think about it. I mean we all think about our bills that we have to pay, and the workload we have, but sometimes we need to think and share love.

Besos!

Glisten like a shiny apple, and shake to “Shine bright like a diamond”

First, if your favorite song is “Shine Bright like a Diamond” raise your hand! Yes love, you will shine just like Rihanna with this highlighter! I am in absolute love with the Colourpop highlighter in Wisp. I haven’t used too many highlighters in my life, but I mean wisp has me hooked like a baby to it’s teddy bear. I dab it with my finger, and a tap it on my cheekbone. I think it helps I have high cheek bones too! The one thing I don’t like about Colourpop‘s packaging is that they don’t have palettes. I think it would be great if they had a highlighter palette, that way you can just carry a variety of highlighters. Wisp feels light, and it makes my skin glisten like a perfect New York apple. I’ve never been to New York personally, but that’s what I know they are known for!

The next product is Wet n’ Wild’s Max Volume mascara which is waterproof. Since I went to a music festival (EDC) I knew I was going to be sweaty, so I opted for a waterproof mascara, but I knew I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. This one costed $5.49 at CVS. Surprisingly, it felt like a $20 mascara. I think the wand is perfect. It is long, and thin towards the end, and it’s not bulky. I personally don’t like waterproof mascaras too much though, because they are difficult to take off at night. I think that’s my only con with this mascara. I did notice some flakes, but nothing too serious. If you have thin long lashes, and you are looking for volume, then buy this mascara. It’s also great if you are going to be in the desert or a festival for a long time, because waterproof mascara will hold a long time in dry and hot conditions.

 

I hope you all have a great 4th of July!

 

Besos!
