Nicki Minaj’s Minajesty Fragrance Commercial


Nicki just released the commercial for her latest fragrance Minajesty. Like always it’s over the top, do you like it? Hate it?

I have to say her bottles don’t appeal to me but her last scent Pink Friday is one of my favorite scents. It might look a bit over the top but the scent is amazing and at the end of the day its not how the bottle looks it how the fragrance smells. I can’t wait to see if Minajesty can live up to her last fragrance.

Nicki Minaj “Minajesty”
Rapper, former American Idol judge and new Kmart collection designer Nicki Minaj has released the 30 second commercial for her new royal fragrance. The signature perfume, a scent that clearly belongs to a queen, is not Nicki’s first addition to the celebrity scent world. Before she entered the castle gates guarded by two extreme hotties, she was treating her fans to Pink Friday, a smell-good beauty buy that comes in a container decked out with, of course, pale pink locks.

Minajesty is available for purchase now, prices run from $20-$65

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil


I have always shied away from using oil on my face. With combination, blemish prone skin the thought of putting oil on my face was a bit too scary.  I was sent  a sample of the Ole Henriksen pure truth youth activating oil serum. I have been recovering from pneumonia and my skin was not looking very great.  I decided to put on my big girl pants and try using oil, and am I ever glad I did.

The oil itself is really light and has a nice citrus scent. Once I apply it, the oil immediately absorbs and my face doesn’t feel greasy or icky. Within the first day my skin looked brighter!  Now I am on my third week of use and my fine lines are looking  better and my overall skin quality has really improved. Using the pure truth your activating oil actually moisturized my face better than cream and leaves it less oily throughout  the day.  I apply this in the morning and at night on my face neck and chest and my skin is feeling fantastic.

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil
What it is:
A powerful activating oil infused with 100 percent pure organic rose hips seed oil, a natural source of active vitamin C, vitamin A, and essential fatty acids, to brighten, repair, and nourish while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What it is formulated to do:
Luxurious and lightweight, this brightly citrus-scented potent antiaging treatment oil quickly absorbs and deeply penetrates to heal, nourish, and hydrate. Fine lines are visibly reduced and skin is immediately brighter and more radiant. Abundant with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, skin is defended from future damage and balanced—look forward to a brighter future daily.

What else you need to know:
Unprocessed to maintain the highest potency, rose hips oil is a single source of active vitamin A, vitamin C, and high levels of essential fatty acids.

Research results:
In a consumer usage study:
- 100% said their skin looked brighter, more luminous, and glowed
- 85% said the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles was visibly reduced


Disclosure: I was sent a sample of this for potential review. I was not paid to write this post and all opinions are 100% my own.
