I swear every week I have at least 3 orders of make up or shoes or clothes. But I’ve been terrible at sharing with you guys my purchases, it’s kind of boring for me to take pictures. But I’m trying again to blog more about beauty, since that’s why I started this blog.
I’m waiting for another order from lookfantastic.com, NARS makeup! I can’t find Nars here. Anyway, let’s start off with what I got from Kicks.no. Kicks is an actual store chain that sells different brands of department store make up, but they also have an online store. Which is great for me, ’cause I can’t get MAC at Kicks in our town. I wish I knew about the online store sooner though! I wouldn’t have gone all the way to Oslo to just buy MAC.
MAC Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Loose in Adjust Peach Beige, and Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting Compact in Illuminate Lavender. I tested them out today, but I’m going to have to try them out again before I give a review. I’m not sure I noticed a difference with the loose powder one, but the lavender one did brighten up my skin.
It’s not so big actually, I’m too lazy to go check what the size is. Anyway, I love loose powders to set my foundation. Hope this one is gooooood!
The color for Please Me is actually more beige than orange, but this lighting or camera! I already tried it with the new lipliner, and it looks good. I haven’t tried Girl About Town yet, shall do so tomorrow. I don’t why but I’m suddenly into bold darker pinks.
Please Me swatch.
MAC Cremestick liner in Sublime Culture. I really like the textures for the cremestick liners! I wish there was more colors available here though.
Giorgio Armani Skin Master Corrector Concealer in #2 Orange. Normally my bareMinerals correcting concealer was enough for my under eyes, but my dark circles have become prominent! If you don’t know already, it’s important to use a color correcting concealer and then top with a concealer for your dark circles. A regular concealer isn’t enough for those bags, you need to color correct them.
bareMinerals Stroke of Light Eye Brightener in #2. I was initially going to get another bareMinerals correcting concealer, but I still have half left on mine (on the right). So I thought why not try something new. Although it’s not the same thing.. but I ordered another concealer from lookfantastic (I think) for Nars concealer. And if that one is no good then I’ll get another bareMinerals correcting concealer. I like that one (on right) ’cause the color is a bit yellow, and it goes well with my skin. Anyway, I’m going to try different products for my dark circles, and see what’s best! Shall do a post if any of these products is a miracle savior!
theBalm Manizer in Mary-Lou. It’s been a while since I bought a powder illuminator. I’ve usually been using cream based. It’s a lovely shade! I tried it out today with a fan brush.
MAC cleanse off oil. I used to use this before, and I always switch around makeup cleansers. For a while now I’ve been using Lancome water cleanser and Clarins one-step cleanser. But it’s so boring to use cotton pads and wipe wipe wipe! Oil cleansers are so easy.
Now moving on to PIMPLE KILLERS. I have no idea what’s happening with my skin. But the day after W’s birthday party, I woke up with a break out. I’ve never had a break out. Well exactly a year ago I remember I got pimples for a month but they went away. This time it was crazy! I woke up and there was like 5 pimples. Oh hell no! And then after those healed, and a couple weeks later, I got a few more. So I ordered Mario Badescu from beautybay.com. I got two of the products last week, and one yesterday with the Kicks stuff. (I ordered the products seperatly because I’m so sick of paying ridiculous tax for make up ordered overseas!) I got the body shop stuff from the store here. And the glotherapeutics I bought here.
As you can see I’ve already used some of the body shop tea tree oil face wash, it’s not good. I mean it makes my face feels fresh. And I always remove make up with make up tissue and cleanser. But you know there’s always a bit make up residue left. And this face wash does not remove it! Last night I tried the Mario Badescu acne facial cleanser and it was great.
I used the Mario Badescu drying lotion a few times last week. I don’t need to use it now as I don’t have anymore new pimples. Thank God! I know I’m overreacting… I freak out if I get a pimple, and this time I got 5. The buffering lotion I used a few times with my normal routine. But I really hate the smell! It’s weird actually, really watery formula.
I thought this was a great idea. Toning pads. So easy to use! I used it for a few days and stopped though. My skin has healed almost, there’s still a few left, but those will heal in time!
For now I’m only going to use the Mario Badescu acne facial wash and the body shop tea tree oil. I don’t think there’s any more new pimples going to surface! *crosses fingers* My friend said I’m ridiculous, that she can only notice 1 on my face. Haha. I know I’m a little drama queen when it comes to stuff like this!
Alright now I need to end this and go to sleep! Natta!
