Beauty Buys

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

I've been super into fashion and whatnot this past month. I honestly haven't done that many beauty posts at all. I've sort of been feeling a lack of inspiration lately. My personal life is kind of going through hell right now, so I've been trying my best to keep up and format posts, but I have stuff to deal with that's putting a damper on my blogging :(

Anyways, these are what I've bought recently as far as skincare and beauty goes. I have a friend that I work with and she sells BeautyCounter products. I placed an order with her last week, and have been loving my purchases! I got their Lip Sheer in the color Twig. The packaging is clearly gorgeous, and the pigment is obviously sheer, but the formula is so creamy and moisturizing. I also picked up their Concealer Pen. I got the lightest shade in Fair. It's definitely a lighter formula than my Nars Creamy Concealer, but it's so blendable and I love it for on-the-go touchups. I also picked up Beautycounter's Lustro Face Oil in #1. I mix a few drops of this with my moisturizer, and it leaves my skin glowing. I have a dry complexion, so this oil is perfect with my sensitive skin!

Last week, I stopped into Sephora to try out some Givenchy beauty products. I ended up picking out their Noir Couture Mascara , which I definitely need to use a bit longer to make a full opinion on, and I also snatched their Le Rouge Lipstick in #211.  I had originally picked up #103, but the stick snapped in half after one use. I returned that one, and of course they were out of 103 all together. So, I ended up picking up this light rose color instead. The formula is amazing, and the packaging is gorgeous!

When I was returning that broken lipstick, I obviously picked up a few more things. I got a couple of sheet masks which I'm dying to try! I got the Dr. Jart Brightening Sheet Mask, the Boscia Pore-Minimizing Hydrogel Mask and the Karuna Anti-Oxidant Sheet Mask. I clearly haven't used them yet, but I will definitely report back on how I like them. 

I was actually on the hunt for a new moisturizer yesterday, since my Lush Celestial is almost gone. I've been wanting to try a new one, and was sort of bopping around the Back Bay yesterday trying to find one. I went into Saks because I wanted to check out the La Mer moisturizers, but a 1 ounce tub of La Mer was $170, so I sort of ran out. I then went to Aesop on Newbury and picked up their Camellia Nut Hydrating Cream. It's designed for sensitive skin, and has a very light scent, which I like. I love Aesop products, so hopefully I will love this moisturizer! 


p.s I'm going to the Primark opening tonight in Boston, so hopefully I can style some stuff on Friday for you! Also, I'm sorry I didn't post Friday or Tuesday. Working all weekend leaves me EXHAUSTED on Tuesday. I woke up at 2 in the afternoon. I had errands all day, and by the time I was done, it was dark outside. The sun setting earlier will be the death of me!
