A few days ago I posted a photo of my haul so here is a breakdown of it all, I finally had a moment to take some individual photos. I filtered the pix, but I made sure to keep the swatches unfiltered so you guys get to see the actual colors. Here it goes:
Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream:
Sunday Riley Good Genes:
Can you guys tell this bottle is HUGE lol. I found it on Barneys.com later I saw Sephora.com had it as well but it was sold out. Here I took a pic of my old smaller bottle thats almost finished. Huge difference in size.
Buxom White Russian. One of my favorite glosses. EVER.
Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge. They have been out of the black one at the Americana the last 2 times I have gone. So I just pick up the white. Works pretty much the same.
I was on 3rd street a few weeks back and picked up the new C.E.O. C+ Antioxidant Protect Moisturizer by Sunday Riley. I am starting to realize that Sunday Riley might be my favorite skin care line thus far. I have been using the moisturizer every morning after my Orlane B21 Serum and have been really liking it! It is very moisturizing and yet it doesn’t make me look greasy or oily. Sometimes if I am feeling extra dry at night, I will use the CEO as my night cream with my Luna Oil and Good Genes and use Tidal as my day time moisturizer.
I also had to restock on one of my favorite mascaras Benefit Roller Lash.
Since we are on the topic of mascara…I had to pick up the new YSL Shock. I have always been a fan of their original mascara so I thought I would like this as well. The wand looks great, but after trying it a few times I am not very fond of it. It is definitely not lengthening, kinda makes them clumpy and short. I dunno. Maybe I have to try it a few more times. As of now my 2 favorite mascaras as Lancome Hypnose and Benefit Roller Lash.
I also picked up a few sheet masks. I have tried the Bosica Charcoal Pore Minimizing Hydrogel Mask before and liked it. I don’t have large pores but I like that it says “purifies” (some people need to purify their dirty souls, just saying’) I wonder if they sell masks for that lmao.
And since I liked the Charcoal I decided to try a different one from Boscia as well, this is the Green Tea Mattifying Hydrogel Mask. I have an oily t-zone so this should be great for me.
The anti-blemish got me on this one lol. I’m not fond of the brand Sephora but I thought I would try this out. Sephora Green Tea Face Mask.
Ok this mask just looked soooo cool I couldn’t walk away from it (then again, who am I kidding, I can’t walk away from most products). Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask. I won’t bore you guys with too much info so if you wanna read on it, just click on the link.
A couple of weeks ago I picked up the medium size of this amika Balancing Shampoo and after a few weeks of using it I realized how much I liked it! So I went to Naimies and picked up the larger one. This is the first shampoo that feels really hydrating and soft when I am washing my hair and yet it doesn’t make my hair limp.
I had heard a lot about these FAB Facial Radiance Pads so when I was at the 3rd Street Sephora I picked them up. I have used half the tub already and I think they are dumb as shit. Literally nothing has changed, nothing feels different, I feel like I am wiping my face with a wet cotton pad. -__-.
I love Boxum so when I saw these Plumpline Lip Liners online a few days ago I knew I had to get them. I just hate guessing what color I would like so I waited until they had them in stores. Incognito was the only color I liked, and to be honest I didn’t even love it. It was a bit too pink for me so I thought I would nude it down a bit with a nude lipstick. I have worn it once so I am not sure how I feel about its plumping effect.
You all know how much I love the Lancome Teint Idole 24 hr Foundation. I was online one day and I thought if I love the foundation so much, why don’t I give the primer a shot as well. –I have not been able to put this primer down since the day I bought it. I have never been a fan of silicone based primers, I have tried the famous Smashbox primer in the past and have broken out every time. But the Lancome La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer has not made me break at at all, and my foundation stays on all day, my t-zone remains matte, and looks flawless! Love it!
I have a SHIT TONE of make-up! But if I were to name one of my favorite products it would have to be lip balms. I have a lip balm obsession! I have like 4 in my car, at least 1 in each purse, and 30 in my make up drawers lmao. So you know getting the Bite Beauty Everyday Agave Lip Balm was a must. I loveeeee the feeling of my lips after applying lip balm. This one in specific is super hydrating!
The Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Stripped is my little sisters favorite lip color. And her lips always look amazing. So I decided to get one as well. I am not a huge fan of liquid lipsticks cause they dry out my lips and give that stupid line (do you know what I’m talking about lol). But I thought I would try out this color.
Thus far every Charolette Tilbury product I have tried I have not been let down. So I decided to give her Magic Complexion Brush a try. I have only used synthetic hair bristles for my foundation brushes, so I was really eager to try out natural hair bristles as well.
I also picked up this beautiful lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury in Hepburn Honey.
While we are on the topic of lipsticks, right next to Charlotte at Nordies is the Burberry counter. They launched a few new lipsticks and velvet liquid lipsticks. I loved this color Nude No. 407
This Cover FX Powder Brush is BOMB. It’s really nice and dense and works well with both pressed and loose powder. I have been using it to buff out my Youngblood loose powder on days where I don’t wear foundation. The coverage is flawless.
I feel like this post is never ending.
I was on the Colourpop website a few days ago and saw 2 warm matte eyeshadows that I really liked. I know they are just like every other warm neutral that I have. But oh well. The color pay-off is amazing though.
I have been trying to finish this post for 3 days now -_-. Why won’t it END?!
Last but not least (F-ing Finally)…I picked up 3 different Tartiest Creamy Matte Lip Paints and I would like to say right off the bat that I HATE them all. :).
The consistency sucks, it dries on your lips like chalk, gives that annoying line in the inner lips, and the colors aren’t really the nice. I don’t know what I was thinking picking up 3. Sometimes I see new shit and lose my damn mind at the store.
OMG I’m finally done. BYE.
Oh ya and this is what I got with my points. I rarely like anything they give out and end up collecting my points. I was at 6,000 so I got a few of these Vanilla Perfumes. I love the way it smells! I really like carrying these around everywhere. lol.
