Before venturing to the United Kingdom, I fantasized about what cosmetic brands I wanted to buy. Besides learning about a country or culture through its food & drink, I learn via its cosmetics. The obvious choices were brands that were not readily available in the U.S. I had narrowed the list down to Sleek, Gosh, Me Me Me, and Barry M.
It was off to London’s shopping district! First stop, Boots =) I ended up buying a cute owl necklace and hair scrunchy; surprising not one makeup item. A few Boots associates were kind enough to point me to the right direction. It was really SuperDrug that I wanted. The next morning I happily trotted into Holborn’s SuperDrug and shopped to my heart’s content. This was what I bought…
I’ve been really interested in this cosmetics brand ever since my trip to Italy and Germany. They have been described as a fusion of whimsical and gothic (reminding me of Urban Decay, Too Faced, and Hard Candy). I wish I had bought even one thing to try from RBR but at the time, I was trying to go on a makeup collection “diet” and had already added Art Deco shadows (Frankfort, Germany) to my list of must-haves. Several months ago I glanced their website and was disappointed to find that they still had no stockists in the U.S. =(. Most recently I heard that Zuneta.com was carrying RBR. The one big problem is the outrageous international shipping costs. I’d rather wait to travel overseas to splurge on RBR but for those of you in the U.S. who can’t wait, you may order the nearly complete line of RBR via Zuneta.
Just found out I didn’t do a post on their products; can’t believe that : /…
I’ve been using their lotion and bronzer for over a year now. I really love their lotions and Dust Up Kissable Body Shimmers!!! I would highly recommend:
Flirty Little Secret Lotion (sweet peach-vanilla scent)
Flirty Little Secret Bronze (does NOT leave you looking like an Oompa-Loompa)
Dust Up Kissable Body Shimmer in Cotton Candy
Dust Up Kissable Body Shimmer in Cruisin’ for a Bronzin’ (cinnamon-vanilla scent)
Booty Parlor is sold at Victoria’s Secret, Booty Parlor website, and on Amazon as well. I would love to try their Flirty Little Secret Luminizing Body Butter in the future since I love their other lotions so much.
