It's been awhile.
Been doing WAY TOO much online shopping.
DAMN YOU SEPHORA!!!
Even thought BE ain't the greatest, I always tend to go back to it. I would love to try other mineral brands out there, but choosing colors by looking at the screen ain't working for me. I can NEVER get the right shade. Even with all bad crap in BE, it works for my skin.
Anyhoo, I got this skin because I REALLY wanted the face brush that it comes with for mineral viel/loose powder/finishing powder. Kind of like a stippling brush but more dense (more of the white stuff).
I was looking for a cleanser that is SUPER gentle but gets the job done. My skin has been acting up lately. No drugstore stuff worked. And I usually can't go high end because they are usually too strong and filled with too much shit that turns my face RED. So, not good.
Finally, decided to try Philosophy and join the cult. Seriously, I LOVE THIS STUFF! It seriously fits well with my skin (so far) and leaves my skin super soft and supple. I love this stuff so much that I ordered the LARGE kit that comes with a bunch of other crap that's coming next week =]
Got a bunch of useless samples and traded in my 100 points and got this!
It reminds me of a wannabe MAC Paint Pot. Unfortunately, they gave me a pink/rosey color *Pre Nup*, so I don't know if I'll ever use it. The case is EXACTLY like HIP's liner. So, I hope Benefit doesn't dry out as fast as HIP's liner.
It's suppose to be creaseless...so we shall see if that's true. If anything, I can use it as a base or whatever...
Next up, Sephora's FF 20% shiet.
UD Pencil Set in Velvet Rope
Dior Pro-Styler Concealer Palette
BE Foundation - Med. Beige
theBalm Big Mama Palette
Dior Pro-Styler Concealer Palette was a must try for me. I have NO concealer. Yups, NONE! I've always used minearl (loose) concealer and that stuff ain't cutting it no more. So, I hope I will like this stuff. Now looking at the case in person, very much worth my money =]
I wanted to try everything in the theBalm Big Mama Palette. The blush is suppose to be a NARS Orgasmn dupe. Anyhoo, I am returning this palette. HAHA. Bronzer looks orangy on me. I wanted to get it to contour (since I'm not having any luck with finding Emote). I wanted a peachy blush, but this stuff is WAYYY too gold for my liking. The pressed powder is any ordinary powder. I don't believe it controls shine any better than any other powders. So, back to Sephora it goes. I may just exchange it for a NARS blush. I'm thinking Amour. I'm naturally pink ALL the time...so anything PINK I don't really like. Looking for a peachy/pink (but more on the peachy side) blush to tone down my pink-ness.
BE Foundation. Staple for now. Can't find anything else that fits my skintone. Not the best, but it'll do for now.
Pencils are alright. Not so much a glitter gal, so I'm not in L-O-V-E. But, great pencils nevertheless. I ordered a bunch of Bourjois pencils, so I might like the shades of those better. But, gotta wait a week for those to come.
MANNNYYY more packages on their way. I figure, might as well get everything now =]....rriiiggghhhttt???
I also gotta post up Eyeco & Clinique crap too. Trying them out right now.
...At work...(in the Valley)
And it's SOOOOOOOO ashy outside right now. Went out to the post office...came back...and my entire face was covered with ASH. Bad time to have lipgloss on. It looked like I had pink and mini black poka dots =/
I hope the fires will be contained soon. Hope everyone is okay!
...Like lots of other people out there, I'm reading Twilight. Mainly because imma go watch the movie with J (who's a BIG fan) and she insist that I read the book before watching the movie. Got through a 150 pages and my verdict: it's aiight. HAHAH. I don't think I'm a romance book type of gal, but I'll finish it. Everyone is SOOOOOO in love with the series. I get it...EDWARD! =]
