Hello! This is just a quick haul
I bought this Tarte blusher palette the other week. I was so excited for this holiday gift set because it is truly a great steal! You get 5 flattering blushers (0.158 oz for each color) for for $50 CAD. The regular package is 0.2 oz for $31 CAD. Isn’t wallet-friendly? (c’mon)
Here are the colors/names from left to right:
Dollface (light pink),
Dazzled (soft rose),
Darling (nude melon),
Crave (pink peach)
Park Ave Princess (bronzer)
I should have done a swatch for these lovely colors, but I guess I can definitely do it next time? LOL
But for Tarte lovers, you know how pigmented and long lasting these blushers are!
The packaging is very luxurious and sleek! Makes me feel Christmas is getting so much closer!
The bow tie cuff in the set is actually pretty cute, but I don’t imagine myself wearing it :/ Simply just not my style!
P.S. I think I can definitely work on the quality of my pictures! LOL usually I just snap a picture with my iPhone
So i finally finished this serum last week. Woohoo!
This is actually my second bottle. I used up the first one while I was doing my co-op job in Saskatchewan. It was the most brutal winter I have ever had in my life! (-40°C plus windchill O.O) My skin was really dull and dry when I arrived. I was literally slapping Vaseline onto my face and in my nostrils (I had bleeding nose for almost a month). Luckily, my friend took me to Sephora one day, so I discovered this serum and decided to give it a try.
I was really curious about this brand because I have heard people raving about their beauty elixir (I have also tried that, lol, too bad I think it is not good for my sensitive eyes), and apparently this brand is very natural and expensive! DUH.
This serum retails for $48 CAD, 1oz. I really enjoy the refreshing scent and the liquid/milky consistence. I used the second bottle from May till early October this year for AM and PM, 1-2 pumps every time depended on how I felt. So I think it last fairly long. I would say this serum might be a bit rich for the summer time. I found that I could just wash/tone my face + apply this serum then go to bed when I am tired at night. It did an amazing job to my dry patches last winter, so I am able to say that it will serve as a nice hydrating serum from fall to winter. I used this serum along with the vinosource quenching sorbet-creme for the first bottle, and they actually paired up perfectly.
I have to say Caudalie is one of my favorite high-end skincare lines. It will be a good choice if you want to pamper yourself with natural skincare.
I created this account a couple weeks ago. Nothing special, but just wondering if I could have/develop this kind of hobby. I have always been a makeup junkie since grade 8. I did not really have any allowance back then, so I would steal money from my parents to buy a tinted lip balm, or nail polish, or face masks. I started rewarding myself, or should I say taking care extra good care of my skin/appearance when I entered college and started working.
Sephora is one of my favorite stores. I can spend hours in there, getting lost in all those magical and colorful makeups, sniffing fragrances, testing out skin care products. I have just gotten this email from Sephora, stating that I am only $100 something away from the VIB Rouge membership status. Honestly I was so shocked that I have spent so much money on cosmetics this year. Yet, I am so amazed by the power of cosmetics.
I can not leave the house without painting my eyebrows. I would feel so vulnerable or even naked without my eyebrows. I love having defined lashes and shimmering eyelids. I love having a nice healthy glowing tan and highlighted cheekbones. I love being able to change the color of my lips everyday. I have to admit, having makeup on really empowers me. And now, I really want to share these wonderful experiences with somebody, like you.
Of course, there will always be hits and misses
