An apology to my wallet: I said I wouldn’t. But I did.
A Beauty Haul (Even Though I’m Supposed to be on a Spending Ban)
The past several months have been fairly dry on the makeup front because I’m trying to use things up before buying more. But, I was weak and bought the limited edition Chanel Lip Powder in Parthenope back in February for my birthday. It’s still untouched because I’m that girl. But, me and my lips are excited to test it out soon because it certainly is a beaut. Also for my birthday I picked up the NARS Tinted Moisturizer with the Ulta birthday coupon. I love NARS and I love tinted moisturizers so I’m excited to crack this one open and see how it performs. Amelia posted about some makeup goodies available online at TJ Maxx and I hopped online real quick to grab the Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting and Burberry’s Pale Barley eyeshadow that The Anna Edit has been raving about for eons. Again, have I used them yet? Nope. But, I will try to stop being that girl and use them so I can do some reviews.
Nothing beats a good drugstore find, and the drugstore has definitely stepped things up, especially Maybelline. I picked up their Temptation Mascara and Eyebrow Pencil. Again, haven’t touched them yet, but I’m always trying to find some drugstore alternatives for things like mascara and eyebrow pencils, and Maybelline is one of my favorite drugstore brands. ELF is one of my favorite drugstore brands for makeup brushes, and because I love Allana Davison and her bronzer, I had to get the ELF Stippling Brush. Allana Davison uses it for her bronzer, so I’m going to use it for my bronzer.
On the skincare (aka my true love) front, I picked up the Valjean Labs Firm serum during that same TJ Maxx haul since it was only $5. The Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream was also on sale during one of the Sephora Weekly Wows so I decided to pick it up since I love their Ceramidin Liquid so much– let’s hope it’s as amazing.
