Flowers Make Me So Happy

I hosted a dinner party at my house last night and my girlfriend Jackie brought me the most beautiful flower arrangement. I’m in love with these colors.

Product Breakdown

Hey Guys,

Yesterday I used the Olivia Palermo Ciate London Satin Lipstick in Cashmere- True Nude
On my lids I have on one of my favorite colors in one of my favorite palettes! Latte from the Lorac Pro Matte Eye Shadow Palette.
My foundation is new. I just picked it up from the Sephora at Disneyland. Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Dusk. I don’t love it, but I do like it. It has medium coverage and give a nice glowy look. Which I like now since I’m dry now. But it isn’t a stay-in-place, all day wear, which I love. But it’s definitely a keeper.

This SONG!

I heard this song at a Armenian Company Christmas Party a few months ago and fell in love. Especially @ 3:05-3:29

Here It Goes!

Hey Guys,

I’d like to start off by apologizing for being gone for sooo long. The last 3 months have been…well, they’ve been interesting to say the least. I have been busy finishing up with school and growing a baby bump. Yes, I am 15 weeks pregnant 🙂 and very very excited! Although I must say,  I spent my first trimester bed bound and nauseous, with  ZERO energy. I left my bed for 2 reasons: FOOD and SCHOOL. But now I am back to feeling my fabulous self (except  I’m 9 lbs heavier haha) and am excited to be active on my blog again.

So I thought what better way to start than to post some of the products I purchased over the past 3 months. I have to tell you guys that most of these items were purchased online because I literally DID NOT LEAVE MY BED (I’m not kidding), and I had lost all interest in beauty products for that time being. It was kinda scary, cause I thought I might stay this way forever -_-.  But I still managed to get some stuff 🙂 SO, here it goes: (oh, and I had not opened a single item until about 3 days ago when I started to remove them from the bags and take photos.)

image
image
Artis Brush Elite Mirror 10 Brush Set
imageOMG I have been using a few of these for the past 3 days and I AM OBSESSED! This set was gifted to me by one of my best friends, RIMA, and at first I thought “How could they possibly work?” Obsessed is an understatement.
image
I ordered this next product online without seeing the color in person, but I knew I would like it just cause it’s NUDE. Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste. Again, I just took it out of its packaging so I have yet to try it on.
image
image
Peach Daquiri by Buxom is something I picked up in Vegas over the New Year. (sidenote:  lol…not your average Vegas trip but I made ONE Sephora run with hubby)… kinda got tired of White Russian, so I decided to try something new. (Haven’t used it yet)
image
image
This next purchase was an item I needed to restock cause I used every drop of the last one I bought. Polish by Lancer. Hands down, most amazing facial scrub/polish/exfoliator I have ever used!!!
image
Initially when I decided to get Lancer products online, I decided to forgo his 2 moisturizers, the day and night, because they felt too heavy for my oily skin. But about 3 weeks into my pregnancy, my skin, hair, and body transformed and became very dry! So when I went to restock on my scrub I thought this is the perfect time to get the Nourish and Intensive Night Treatment.
image
I have used the night time for 2 nights in a row and liked it, but obviously I haven’t noticed a  dramatic difference in my skin in only 2 days.
image
image
As for the daytime moisturizer, I have not used it yet because for the past month and a half I have been using a new face oil + moisturizer which I AM IN LOVE WITH!
image
Here is my new found addiction! Dr Colbert! I don’t know what it is about these 2 that I can’t stop using, and am considering getting his entire line. But I would feel horrible doing that now cause I am still in the process of using my Lancer. So here I have the Nutrify & Protect Day and Illumino Face Oil
image
The reason I am using these two as a combo is because my skin has become extremely dry since I’ve been pregnant. I do 2 pumps of the moisturizer and 1 pump oil and mix it together using my finger tips then apply. These 2 products are so soothing, calming and hydrating. It has not given me a single blemish, it’s not too heavy and I also love the smell! And if you have been pregnant, you know the extremely heightened sense of smell!!! (I will do a skin care routine post soon)

Next item was a Vegas Purchase! Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick in Almond Nude
image
I had 2 of these at the time of purchase but I got a third cause, well…I dunno why but I did. Freakin’ love this color for everyday.
image
This was an online purchase that I was really iffy about, but I got it anyway.
image
I really don’t think I will make use of it. It’s not really my kinda color but you never know…
image
image
Another online purchase was by  Color Pop! I love their lip products, their blushes are so-so, and this time I decided to try shadows. I fell in love with these 2 colors:
image
image
image
love this color!
image
My Antica Farmacista bathroom diffuser recently finished, so I went to Naimies to get the large bottle, but they were out, then I went to Nordies and they only had the tiny size -_-. I die for this smell! Vanilla, Bourbon & Mandarin.
image
I also picked up this Amber Diptyque candle for my bedroom. Loved this scent.
image
image
Another online purchase was this Tarteist Contour Palette. Been using it 2 days now, liking it a lot, and it smells amazing.
image
image
Texture is also great! Very velvety.
image
I also got this Buxom Eyeshadow Bar Suede Seduction Palette when I was in Vegas. I LOVED the colors!
image
image
Another Vegas purchase. Olivia Palermo for Ciate London Satin in True Nude.
imageGorgeous color!
image
Got a lot of lashes from IMATS (Thanks to my sister for making me go!):
image
image
image
image imageimage

image
image
image
image
These were nameless lol. But they looked identical to my Ardell 318’s.
imageArdell 318’s.
image
Oh, I forgot my Lancer Sheer Fluid Sun Shield. I got this to use after my moisturizer prior to applying make-up. I was on Lancer’s website and he couldn’t stress enough the importance of SPF during the summer and winter.
image
Have not used it yet, but I’ll keep you guys updated.
image I AM GETTING TIRED….
Next, online order. OBSESSED with this color!
image
Buffy aka Buff Nude, was originally in a Trio. But now, they are sold individually online.
image
My bestie Nicole got me this wonderful Peter Thomas Roth Mask-a-holic set! So excited to use them. I love his line!
image
My mom has really dry skin and she swears by the Cucumber gel mask.
image
image
Although in my first trimester I did not wash or blow out my own hair (I had no energy to), I was still looking for a new shampoo/ conditioner. My friend Rima recommended this, so I picked it up from SpaceNK. I’ll let you guys know what I think.
image
image
Dose of Colors from IMATS!
image
These colors are SICK. Other than Sand, the rest of the colors just launched. Sand is my all time favorite nude to apply on top of any color that I think is maybe too dark for my taste.
image
I picked up the next 2 lipsticks from IMATS as well:
image
Don’t mind that top swatch, thats just Buffy from Lime Crime after it dried on my hand. I was too lazy to wipe if off before switching the lipstick.
image
image
image
I ordered these beard combs for my husband and my brother-in-law. My husband hated it lol. Now I’m stuck with 3 of them -_-.
image
Love this gloss. the Balm Read My Lips gloss in Snap.
image
image
I got this Glam Glow Lip Treatment from Vegas, it is called Plumprageous. I’m not sure how I feel about it though. I remember liking the way my lips looked when I tried it on in Sephora, but I also remember it giving me this taste in my mouth that made me choke, like a hot pepper. I have to use it a few more times before I give a proper review. It’s plumping lip gloss.
image
image
My sister Emma got me this. She knows I like limited edition ANYTHING.
image
image
image
image
Love this Too Faced lip liner in Perfect Nude. I was pretty sure the one I have at home broke, or I lost the cap. SO I figured I’d get a new one.
image
It’s the first swatch on the left. I think they discontinued their lip liners. I found this last one in Vegas. Really nice every day lip liner.
image
I got this amazing blending brush at IMATS from MUD cosmetics, along with a lip pencil and lip gloss:
image

image
The lip pencil is in the color Maple:
image
The girl working at the booth was wearing the maple lip liner with this lip gloss and it looked so great. My sister and I both both it.
image
Next, we have this eyebrow pencil that I am loving but have no clue to who makes it (from IMATS):
image
I also stopped by the Inglot booth and got 2 lip liners. I think I have the nude one.
image
image
Another IMATS purchase:
imagethe one on the left (Fiance) is a gloss, but the one on the right dries (Richy) matte.
image
OBSESSED with these next 2 colors I’m about to show you guys! I got these at Sephora.
image
They are both from the new Melted Chocolate Collection.
image
I am in LOVE with these colors!
image
I can’t begin to describe to you guys how I feel about this new product. I loved it so much I went back the next day and bought one more. The color is PERFECTION! I know all the colors are very similar but I can’t help myself. This one is another perfect natural lip color for everyday wear.
image
image
I also got this lip liner that I would use years ago,  my sister Emma wears it all the time! Every time I see her wearing this I end up asking “whats on your lips” so I decided to pick one up. I know she fills in her lips with the liner after lining them.
image
This new foundation by Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Longer Foundation Stick, looked so cool I had to get it. I have not used it yet, but all I needed to know was that it was full coverage and long wear and I was sold! Plus I love the liquid version of it, so I figured this would be just as great.
image
I think it’s exclusive to Sephora for the time being.
image
I swear my eyes are starting to see double at this point.

My ride or die blush brush. Yachiyo # 27 by Nars. I think I lost mine in Vegas, so I picked up a new one.
image
If you have my skin tone YOU HAVE TO GO GET THIS BLUSH ASAP! I promise you will LOVE this color. I wish I got 2!
image
Restock. Ya’ll know this is one of my all time favorite foundations. I always mix G40 with a dab of G60 to get my perfect color.
image
My older sister got this highlighter for me. I know, I’m really late getting on the Anastasia highlight bandwagon. But I must admit, I don’t think I like the texture very much. I might have to use it a few more times to be sure.
image
I was kinda chalky the first 2 times I used it. The brush just didn’t pick up the pigment like my finger does.
image
Another online purchase Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl. I don’t know what I was thinking getting this. It’s 100% going back to the store, unless one of my sisters want it.
image
There is no way I can rock a highlight that is the color silver/white.
image
I think we are almost done.

I am so so satisfied with this purchase, and I have only used it twice. It’s the new Make Up Forever Ultra HD Concealer.
image
The texture is amazing, and it looks and feels wonderful after I have applied and set it with powder. Oh and the coverage is the shit! The only annoying part about it is the applicator tip. I don’t know what the hell to do with it, so I apply it to the back of my hand then use my finger to apply to my skin.
image
This new Leave-in-Conditioner by Drybar called Mr. Incredible was something I had seen online but really wanted to smell before I bought it. So when it finally hit the stores a week ago I went and picked it up. The smell really wasn’t that wonderful but it looked like something I would like so I got it anyway.
image
I used to run a hair salon that sold a shit tone of Bumble and Bumble, and the stylists were obsessed with these 3 products, I remember using it back then but I don’t remember what my thoughts were about them. So I got these tiny ones to see if I would like them now. They are all applied on wet hair prior to blow drying. Tonic and Prep are both primers that benefit both your scalp and hair. The company was bought out recently so I know some formulations have changed.
image
I took this from my friend Rima’s purse (it’s obviously a winner):
image
These next few colors were probably the dumbest purchases lol. The only reason I bought them was because they were always sold out so I thought “how can they not look good, if they are so popular.” Boy was that mentality wrong.
image
image
I gave both Lolitas away to my girlfriends. And I still have Noble but I most likely will never wear it.
image

THAT’S ALL GUYS!
XoXo,
Anyut

      Hi Anna,

      Thank you. To be honest I have not been working out at all since I got pregnant because I was not doing well at all in my first trimester. I’ve been well for only about 10 days now, but again I have not worked out lol. Matter of fact I have been eating A LOT. I don’t really mind gaining weight during pregnancy, since it’s expected and as long as I don’t go overboard, just because I know I won’t have a hard time bouncing right back. I can’t say I eat healthy cause I literally eat everything in sight and give in to every craving :). I will def post my fitness routine after I recover from my C-Section.
