So... I did some shopping this week. I totally blacked out and low key lost my mind, but whatever. I picked up some pretty dope beauty products that I thought I'd share with ya'll. Half of these are actually repurchases, which is a good sign. First, I had to get some Shiseido Facial Cotton. I don't even know how many packs of these facial cottons I've gone through. Ever since I started using these, I haven't used any other cotton on my face. Another repurchase is the Soap & Glory Hand Food, not only is this a super moisturizing and nourishing hand cream, but it also smells like Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfume. DOWN.
I don't really use a lot of concealer, so the fact that I actually went through an entire tube of this concealer AND went back to buy it again is pretty crazy. This NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is perfect. It's light, blends easily, works great under my eyes and on my face, which is v. rare. If you don't like heavy makeup, get there girl. Another product I just keep coming back to is Kate Somerville EradiKate. This is the most incredible spot treatment ever. There isn't a single person I've recommended this to who hasn't seen immediate results and loved it. And I'm insane. I go through bottles of this so quick. Probably because I cover my entire face with it before I go to bed. Okay, not my entire face, just over any discoloration, hyperpigmentation, irritation, visible pores, blackheads, and basically anything I don't like on my face haha. The reason this wasn't included in my skincare routine post is because I wasn't using it at the time. I'll use this for a month, then stop for a month, because my skin gets used to it and it stops being as effective.
This lipstick was a complete impulse buy. Except it really wasn't because I've been trolling this new line of lipstick online for a few weeks, but it's hard to buy lipstick online (thank God). When I finally found it in store... I couldn't not get one. This is the Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy in Lotus (Pink 507). This is basically a CC cream in lipstick form. It's goes on super smooth and I have a feeling I'll be getting some more shades soon.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love anything rose scented. So when I found Jo Malone Red Roses, I needed it in my life. Next time you pass a Jo Malone, stop and smell this, trust.
I took these photos less than 24 hours after purchasing these products, and I clearly managed to make quite a dent in this lip balm which demonstrates how hooked I already am. Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm is fam now. We already know how I feel about rose scented things, but even if it didn't smell beautiful, this is the best lip balm I've ever used. It has a gorgeous subtle pink tint, SPF 10, and it immediately hydrates and smooths lips. This is my new obsession.
So I can't really say much about the L'Occitane 'Immortelle' Precious Eye Balm because I've only used it twice, and it takes at least a couple weeks for me to figure out how I really feel about an eye cream. But I like the consistency of it, and my under eyes soak it right up. Maybe I'll give you guys an update in a few weeks? Yay? Nay?
