If you’re not in the know on your Asian beauty you might not know that washing powders are fairly common in various parts of Japan, Korea, etc….
What is it?
Sounds odd right? It’s simply a powder in a bottle of some sort that you shake out (like salt or sugar) into the palm of your hand and you add a little water to it to. Once you add the water it’ll lather up and you can clean your face with it. I’ve literally tried hundreds of washing powders most of which have whitening or brightening promises. I don’t particularly love washing powders as I find they are messy to work with. As here you are jugging a wet face and hands, struggling to get a bottle open to pour a powder into your hands, etc….etc….I also don’t think many of them deliver on their promises and in a few cases they end up making my skin very tight and dry after use.
I do find it completely novel that E.L.F. is one of the very first washing powders I’ve seen in the US market.
Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick you’re tickling me today, I want to make you my very own.
It’s not like I need another lipstick, you know right? You get it.
But your tempting, “I’ll go the distance” promise really has me at hello.
Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick promises an extremely long-wearing lipstick with radiant shade. Bold lip color, beautiful shine, a plumping effect thanks to hyaluronic microspheres, and a wear that won’t quick until the lights go out.
Ok, you got me, I’ll indulge.
Available now in 15 fabulous shade some of which are exclusive to Sephora and Sephora.com
Hope everyone had a nice long weekend. I woke up this morning to the birds singing (seriously, Spring has arrived in New York), a lovely cuppa tea, and the Bobbi Brown Brightening Nudes Collection. All is right with the world.
Brightening Nudes brings back some of my all time favorite eyeshadows shades and a brand new powder that some of us might be terribly excited to get our greedy little hands on.
Take a look, tell me what you think you might NEED!
I feel like I haven’t talked to you all in ages. Sorry. I’ve just been swamped. Life, Work, the Universe…! I hope you’re all doing well and had a lovely Valentine’s Day yesterday.
I have new posts upcoming shortly and I should be back on a more regular post schedule shortly, just been a bit busy and have a lot of catching up to do.
Do say hey in the posts, would love to know how you’ve all been!
Talk soon yes?
P.S. Has anyone gotten fully into Spartacus Vengeance yet? I only watched two episodes but I have to force myself through the third one, it’s crazy boring, confusing, and loss a lot of the original magic. Just seems like I can’t get a handle on the story at all, it’s proving very difficult to follow. No likey! I hope it gets better soon! At least Winter is coming soon!
I braved the jungle of Walgreens yesterday because I needed pick something up really quick. Stupid, I know. People were jammed packed into a single aisle snatching up chocolate hearts and anything else they could get their hands on like the world was coming to an end or a snow storm was coming, either of those two.
Of course, I had to make a quick pit stop into the cosmetic aisles and what do my eyes behold? A Liplicious Lipgloss sitting, sealed, in a small bin in one of the center aisles that houses newly released makeup displays. I wanted to snap a picture of it but there was employees milling around and they get their panties literally in a bunch when you whip out the old iPhone and start taking photos of makeup. I think it’s against the law, either that or they think I’m some sort of secret shopper.
I’m pretty sure it was some sort of sign of approval telling me it’s ok to buy more Liplicious Lipgloss.
I swear to the makeup gods this really happened.
Needless to say my current lemming is the new Liplicious Glass Collection which according to Bath & Body Works are lip essentials for our makeup bags.
