Driving into work this morning, absolutely bawling my eyes out listening to JJ Watts talk about his fundraising efforts for Harvey relief aid. Coworker asks me what’s wrong, I’m fine. I just found my faith in humanity again and I just cried off about $1.75 worth of Dior mascara 😀 I am a pretty emotional person, but my delivery of all emotions is dead pan unless I am crying so it is often hard for others to gauge what I am thinking or feeling. I will be super excited about something and be like, Oh, I am so excited; and people think I am being sarcastic but I’m not! When my hamster died, I simply walked into the living room and told the BF, Newman died. Then when I was boxing up his little body I was crying because I was really sad and the BF was shocked, he said he didn’t think I was sad about it. I never want to be dramatic about things but this results in people thinking I am having mood swings when I have felt strongly about something the whole time, just on the inside. Anyway, I think it is amazing what people who are just private citizens wanting to make a difference are doing.
Side note, I have to apologize to anyone who has followed me on Twitter and I have never followed you back or interacted – I am terrible at Twitter. I don’t get it – I followed all of you back and I appreciate that you took the time to follow me! I have a wish list today, there have been a few releases that have me drooling and I feel that I need.
Natasha Denona has a new palette, I am still bitter about missing out on the Sunset palette and in all honesty – I am probably going to miss out on this one because I don’t get online shopping. How do items sell out in literally minutes? You can’t show up late to an online launch, I work all day – release things at like 7 PM CT, I could maybe be on time for that. I need the Lila palette, I don’t own a lot of purple or pink shadows – I own a few singles from ColourPop and SugarPill but can say with certainty that this would be a unique item in my collection. You get 15 pans of shadows for $129, eh – that is steep but I would love to own this.
TooFaced just released a slew of products and most of it is pretty boring but I do want a couple of items from the I Want Kandee Collection. I have to have the Banana Pudding Brightening Face Powder because it looks amazing and Kandee has a gorgeous complexion – I don’t think that she would back a shitty face powder. This is a multi-coloured brightening powder that is supposed to colour correct, blur imperfections and set your makeup and it smells like bananas which I can appreciate.
There are also three liquid lippies included in the collection and while the tubes are really cute, I don’t think they are anything special but might have to take a peek…
I am still doing the dry skin thing, I am cringing at the thought of the dry winter weather. I have used the Vitamin E line from the Body Shop before, they have an overnight mask that I really enjoy – I am keen to try this hydrating mist. I would like to find something super hydrating that can be sprayed over my makeup. I already know that I am getting wind burn but maybe this will minimize the damage.
Makeup Forever has these nifty little, Prep, Cover & Set kits where you can sample a primer, foundation and setting product. I have always wanted to try a foundation from this brand but first, there are 500 shades and the reviews are either love or hate. I would love to try a couple of these to see what works for me.
Finally, I do want a full-size of The Water Cream from tatcha but I am really going to have to talk myself into this one. I am half-way through the deluxe sample that I bought and if it doesn’t break me out and keeps working for me, I might have to go for it.
That’s it! What products do you have your eye on?
Thanks for stopping by ❤
