I asked Lili what her Meow summer mix is, and she said she uses a mix of Purrrfect Puss foundation in Naughty Angora and Naughty Chartreux. It was uncanny that I have those exact foundations (right down to the formula) in full size tubs. Lili, bless her heart, offered to send some samples my way, but that won't be necessary (thanks for the invaluable heads up on your shade, though!). I tried her mix and I can say it does work on me as well; it's a little lighter than Naughty Abyssinian but I think I can still hack it since mineral makeup shades are very forgiving. It's a little perkier and less golden than Naughty Abyssinian, but at least I'm glad those gigantic tubs won't be put to waste. I was almost ready to sell them off; good thing I didn't!
I am also getting attached to my Aromaleigh Pure Shine lipglosses! In my previous review of these, I said that I am not a fan of click pens with the annoying brush tip, and I still am not. However, the scent of chocolate oranges is making me go bonkers. I super LOVE the scent, mainly because I'm a certified chocoholic. The staying power isn't that great, but that actually gives me an excuse to apply it often, because the taste and scent are so freaking addicting. Using these chocolate scented/tasting lipglosses actually provide my sugar fix (no, really), so much so that I don't crave for chocolate that much anymore when I apply it. For that reason alone, I think I need to hoard more of these!
The finish of the lipglosses is also a winner in my book because it's semi-sheer but gives a significant amount of color, and the shine is unbelievably luscious. I have seven of these babies, but one of them is a back-up (Zen). Below is my attempt to create some swatches of these; yes crappy lighting, but I think these will suffice for now:

I just bought some more body butters from Lure Beauty, but this is a much smaller haul. I am so glad I already have my Peaches n Cream body butter, this scent is driving me crazy, it smells so good!! I also got Honeysuckle and Banango body butters in trial sizes, the Banango is a heady, fabulous scent as well. Honeysuckle smells so clean and fresh, and reminds me of breezy summer days.
Body butters in Peaches 'n Cream (full-size tub), Honeysuckle (top) and Banango. If you can only sniff these from your computer screen. These smell so good, and are also very thick and moisturizing.
