This past week I was really moved by a YouTube video from My Pale Skin called “You Look Disgusting”. As I’ve had acne all my adult life, this has hit a very sensible cord. If you haven’t watch it yet, please do!!!
I want to thank each and everyone of you in our little blogging community for being so nice, supportive and non-judgemental.
As you know, my makeup compulsion has turned my bathroom’s space into a lifetime supply of eyeshadows palettes, lip products & nail polishes😜. Having secured all those treasures, I started playing with new products: foundations, finishing powders, primers; well you know what I mean : the basics!
First stop was MAC! I ended up buying the new Limited Edition Fix+ in Creamy Coconut (I snatched the very last one!!) and the lovely girl working at the counter gave me a large sample of their Face and Body foundation. For 3 days in a row, this foundation blew me away!! My regular foundation always “kinda” breakdowns after 8 hours or so, but this one didn’t budge whatsoever.
Pro Tip: Did you know that the best way to apply the Face and Body foundation is by warming the product between your hands (it gets a little ticker) and then, applying it on your face. For me it works like a charm. I love samples it beats returning stuff 😉
My local Walmart has expanded big time and surprise surprise, they now carry Flowers Beauty & Hard Candy brands. I wanted to buy everything from both companies so I restrain myself (for now) and just bought Glamoflauge Heavy Duty concealer from Hard Candy (the review coming next week) and the ULTIMATE POWDER BRUSH from Flowers Beauty (Drew Barrymore’s company). I am so impress on how soft the bristles are and I’m happy to report that there is no shedding yet. It has already become my new favorite brush to buff my face at the very end of my makeup and to smooth one last time any tiny arch line that remains.The handle is big but quite handy.
I will definitely buy the ULTIMATE EYE SHADOW BRUSH too.
This week, I have a date with Keith Urban (along with about 40000 other fans), so my inner cowgirl-self has been shinning her cowboy boots and playing some of his songs; my new fav totally being ” John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16 “
Have a great weekend my beauties
