Whoooo Sephora haul! I’m in a wedding this weekend, and I get to do my own hair and makeup so I wanted to get some big girl foundation (usually I just wear bb cream). I went in and did the color IQ/ID(?) thing, and only 4 products in the whole store came up, so my options were very limited.
Fortunately, MUFE Face and Body in Porcelain 2 was a perfect match. I got some Smashbox Primer (the light version) to go with it, and used a 100 point perk to get a deluxe sample of MUFE HD setting powder. I tried everything out last night and I was very pleased with how my skin looked. Unfortunately it was dark, so no pictures yet!
skywentred said: Are you able to hide the nape shave underneath a low bun? I am curious because I want to do something similar but need to wear a bun over it for work.
Hm, that might be a challenge. I wasn’t able to hide mine very well when my hair was up, but my hair was also on the shorter side, and my shave went pretty far up and to the sides. If you shave less surface area (like the triangle type nape shaves I imagine it would be easier to hide with a bun.
Yay Fortune Cookie Soap Box Day! Boo awkward conversation with my mailman while I’m wearing nothing but a bathrobe. But anyway.
I don’t care much for the theme, I sort of hate The Wizard of Oz, and I’ve never seen Wicked, but I do love me some fall scents.
So there are 4 different whipped cream scents, and all are pumpkin laced with other things, and I want to inhale all of them. Favorite scents/possible purchases would be those, followed by Flying Monkeys and The Shiz.
Crappy picture, but I looked cute yesterday, and you can kinda see my scabby new tattoo. I think I should make my eyebrows bolder, but I’m scared.
Golden Egg Bath Bomb - Easter 2014
After my rather negative experience with Star Light Star Bright, I was nervous about trying another product covered in glitter, but Honey I Washed the Kids is one of my favorite scents so I gave it a go. This is a hybrid bath bomb and bath melt, with the outer layer being the melt and the inside being the bomb. I think cutting this in half would have been sufficient for one bath, but using the whole thing I ended up with one super luxurious and moisturizing bath! The scent was pretty strong and lingered, which I liked, and the glitter wasn’t gritty and nasty like Star Light Star Bright but much more fine and manageable like a Dragon’s Egg bath bomb. This is a slow fizzer, and turned the water yellow with golden glitter swirls. It did require some clean up after, but I would purchase again.
Celestial Moisturizer - $24.95
I got a sample of this “sensitive skin” moisturizer, but I didn’t really care for it. It has an odd, rather plastic-y sort of smell, and as a moisturizer while it didn’t upset my skin, it didn’t compare to my current Embryolisse moisturizer. It also contains parabens, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Would not purchase.
Dirty Soap - $7.95/3.5 oz.
I got a small sliver of this soap as a sample. I’d smelled it in store but didn’t have strong feelings for it one way or the other. It’s a rather manly scent, sort of herbal and minty. As far as soap it’s just soap, I didn’t notice anything spectacular or negative. I liked it, but overall may or may not purchase.
New hair cut! I’m feeling a little remorse (she took 6 inches off the back so now I don’t have an awkward short under layer where my undercut was), but I think it was the right call. The color is a little off because of the lighting, but I’m going to be dying it later this week anyway!
Hair appointment tomorrow, and I’m debating doing something different after having my hair about the same for about a year…but I’m scared and want to chicken out…which means I must get my hair cut differently! It’s only hair, don’t get attached to it or let fear of change make decisions for you.
July Empties! Not much to report here. The Befine lip serum went bad, the Mary Kay mascara made my eyeballs sad, and I didn’t care for the Celestial moisturizer (plus it smelled kind of plastic-y?). Oh, and the Munchies bath bomb samples smelled like Flintstones vitamins.
HAHAHA OMFG THIS IS GREAT
