I miss you all! I hope you are all well. My emotions and motivation are a literal roller coaster; I can be feeling great one day and so shitty the next. I don’t like writing when my heart isn’t in it, so I am doing my best and taking it day by day.
Anyway, we are here for another haul. My most recent one to be exact from the end of April. I needed a few things and got carried away and got a few extras. Enough talking, let me show you what I got.
Note: (*) asterisk are things I actually needed, just to differentiate, lol!
P.S. Sorry for photo darkness, it’s been raining a lot here!
Haircare / Skincare
One of the things I desperately needed was a dry shampoo so I got the *Not Your Mother’s Plump for Joy Body Building Dry Shampoo. Their Plump for Joy line is specifically designed for fine hair, like mine. I have tried several dry shampoo’s, but this one I found perfect for my hair. It absorbs excess oils, gives my hair some volume, and leaves no residue.
I ran out of the *Mario Badescu Lavender Facial Spray, which I talked about not too long ago. I loved it and needed another one. I also needed some micellar water so I grabbed the *Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Water and the *Tony Moly Peach Cleansing Water (the only non-CF brand I purchase).
For extras, I got another toner; the e.l.f. Cosmetics Keep Your Balance Toner and I also got an Earth Therapeutics Makeup Removing Cloth so I can rotate between this one and another one I have.
I’m a sucker for sheet masks, they’re truly one of my favorite things when it comes to skincare. I already have so many, I really didn’t need more. However, they had a BOGO special going on and couldn’t pass them up, as Tony Moly’s masks are among my all-time fave. I grabbed the following from Tony Moly:
- I’m Peach (Vitalizing) Sheet Mask
- I’m Rice (Clear Skin) Sheet Mask
- I’m Lavender (Hydrating) Sheet Mask
- I’m Rose (Vitalizing) Sheet Mask
I haven’t tried these specific masks yet, so these are new to me. Considering I’ve loved all the others I’ve tried, I have high hopes for these too. I also grabbed the Oh K! Chok Chok Smoothing Under Eye Mask and the Bliss Holographic Foil Eye Masks. I figured I can’t have too many and I haven’t really treated myself to some eye masks in a while.
Next in the makeup category; the *Ardell Dual Lash Applicator and the *DUO Strip Lash Adhesive in Dark Tone. To be honest, I did need both of these things. I needed something better to apply my falsies because I have a hard time using my tweezers and accidentally pinching my skin, just ’cause I’m dumb. As for the lash glue, I ran out of my favorite one from BH Cosmetics and couldn’t get another because their lashes are sold out and the only way to get that glue is to buy the lashes. 😦
As for the palettes, I really didn’t need them either. Especially since I just received like three others from Boxycharm and Influenster. Plus I also have several palettes just sitting on my vanity, waiting to get used. I am hoping that this will give me motivation to use at least two palettes each month and create looks again. Doing my makeup is so therapeutic for me, it’s a shame I haven’t given myself some me-time to just do makeup.
These palettes are both from BH Cosmetics, on the left is Summer in St. Tropez and on the right is Trendy in Tokyo. I actually have been eyeing these palettes for the LONGEST time, and the only reason I bought them was because they were slightly on sale, so I just HAD to get them! They’re so pretty, I cannot wait to swatch them and play with them!!!
That’s all I have for you today. I should have more content coming soon.
I’m just procrastinating a lot lately, so meeee!! LOL.
