I’m in a constant battle with dark circles, bane of my utter bloody existence. The makeup gods look down on me and cackle punishing me with not only dark circles but puffiness. I think I’m in more of a battle with the bulge (puffiness) than I am with dark circles most days of my life.
So of course I’m all about trying as many concealers as my make up life permits. I have about 25 different concealers that I rotate daily to see which gets me the most flawless look of all and I’m constantly trying new ones. Smashbox Pro Waterproof Second Skin Concealer is one that recently crossed my dark circle path and I’ve been having a little test with it this week and I gotta say for those of you with dark circles you’ll probably likey this little guy alot.
Ahhhh pink. For a long time it was my signature shade of choice. Pink always gives my cheeks a youthful glow so I’m all over it like white on rice. The Stila Fall Collection 2010 has released and it’s all about that perfect shade of color for cheeks.
Now, I don’t really commonly associate the shade of pink with Fall but I can’t deny that I’m really loving hard on the Stila Custom Color Blush.
Let me tell you the Candyman can take a sunrise, spirkle that shiz with dew, cover it in chocolate, and a miracle or two but he ain’t got nuttin’ on Make Up For Ever.
Make Up For Ever can completely re-launch their lipstick range with Rouge Intense and make them available in 50 brand new shades plus slap an easy color wheel Lipstick Shade Finder together so you can find your perfect lipstick shade.
Contrary to what I might believe, Digipop is not the latest boy band from Korea it’s the latest MAC Collection. Well, doh!
No seriously, doesn’t it sound like some sort of band? Ok, maybe that’s just me.
MAC Digi-Pops Collection made its debut earlier this Summer exclusively at Nordstrom. During pre-booking I was super excited to play with Digi-Pops myself so I headed over to Nordies and promptly became utterly disgusted at the display. Nordstrom, baby, mama loves you but please clean up your act. I was appalled at the condition of the collection. One of the things I was really interested in exploring were the new Digi-Pops Dazzle Lipsticks and they were just so terribly gross that I couldn’t even bear to look at them never mind swatch them. The lipsticks were squashed and smushed down to the core, just really a hot mess.
Needless to say I didn’t bother pre-booking any of it because I couldn’t get a feel for the product in that condition.
Lucky enough MAC has released the Dazzle Lipsticks and they are in, thank god, way better condition than the Nordie’s ones were.
I’d love if I had more time to head to the spa for a facial. Ideally I’d love to just sit back and relax at least twice a month but it never happens. I always feel so pressed for time and sitting back for a facial rarely makes it into my day to day schedule.
I’m lucky enough to have very good skin without any problems however dullness is something I suffer from a fair bit. My skin is very lackluster and in need of a boast most days of its life. One such boast would be a proper exfoliation as this seems to revive and kick start my skin. Dullness is fairly common for those with dry skin and my own fits right into the groove.
Taking my dullness and my lack of time for a facial into consideration I invested nearly $100 on the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment in hopes it would not only cure my dull skin but also keep me from having to rearrange my schedule for facials.
