Whoops drug store haul. I haven’t bought chapstick in soooo long, okay? And I heard that the Blistex Ultra-Rich Hydration is a possible Fresh Sugar dupe.
I’m anxious for Mac’s RHPS collection to come out, but I have 0 patience so I got Wet N Wild lipsticks in Cherry Picking and Cherry Bomb. Cherry Bomb (the darker of the two) is a dupe for Mac’s Sin, which will be a part of the RHPS collection that comes out next month.

Fizzy O’Therapy Bath Bomb (discontinued)

I got this bath bomb from the Retro line before it was discontinued. This is a spicy smelling bomb that supposedly relives sore muscles. I love Cinders and I was hoping this would be a good off-season replacement. Not as good as Cinders, but still not bad. Not sure whether or not I would purchase again (although now that decision has been made for me!).

Catastophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask - $6.95

I got this mask for returning 5 black pots. I wasn’t sure which mask to get, and this one seemed like the most “general” as far as skin care needs. The first time I used it I ended up with a weird chalky residue on my face, but haven’t had that problem since then. This mask leaves my face feeling smooth and somewhat moisturized without feeling oily. It doesn’t make my skin freak out which is always a concern, and it does seem to calm down blemishes a little bit. I wouldn’t call it a life saver, but I would get it again.

Mudflats Soap - $6.95/3.5 oz.

This soap is part mask and part soap, and is supposed to help with body acne, which I sometimes get on my back, chest, and upper arms. For the first week or so I thought it was working, but after using the whole bar I don’t think it made any difference at all. Would not repurchase.

Redyed my hairs and got all fancied up for date night last Friday. I was surprised that this color faded as much as it did, it pretty much turned brown. It also looks more black this time around.

Lush haullllll! I finished off my pot of Herbalism earlier this week, and that made for 5 black pots to return. I had a hard time deciding which fresh face mask to get, so hopefully Catasrophe Cosmetic works out. I’ve been trying to go easy on the wallet/deplete the stash so I only got a couple bath treats, the two bombs being the last two I haven’t tried that I want to try (except for maybe butterball, always forget about that one). They also had small chucks of soap cut up for once instead of big ones, so I decided to get a little piece since I’m actually starting to get low (didn’t have to buy soap at all last year). I had no idea that they are changing some of the formulas to “self preserving,” so the saleslady made sure to give me a sample (she noticed that most of the pots I brought back were Mask of Magnaminty). This concludes the post where every sentence includes parenthesis!

So for a minute there I considered Eyeko to be my HG liquid eyeliner pen, but when I repurchased it, I seem to have gotten a dud. I didn’t want to take the risk again, so my quest continues. I went to Meijer intending to by a NYX pen, but I saw Milani was on sale by one get one 50% off, so I got their version of the ergonomic handled pen (which is several dollars cheaper to begin with). I’m going to need a new black pencil soon anyway, so either way it’ll be a win!

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.
Miss Popular Bubble Bath Powder - “honey nectar, anise, jasmine, orange, violet.” It’s too flowery/perfumey for me.
There’s No Place Like Home Fortune Cookie Soap - CINNAMON. For starters, it’s super cute, all glittery and what not. I don’t know that I would purchase this scent, but it’s not bad.
The Shiz Perfume Oil - Smells like spicy leaves, I dig it.
Hair Flip Hair Oil - I love hair oils so I’m excited about this one. Also it smells like buttercream frosting. Win!
Roy G. Biv OCD Hand Sanitizer - The description says citrus/floral again a fall background, but I just smell hand sanitizer with this one.
Flying Monkeys Personal Space Air Freshener - Fruity fruity fruit fruit. I like fruit.
Swankified Walnut Facial Scrub - So walnut shells? Not the best thing to rub on your face. That will tear your shit up. I will probably use this as a general body scrub. It does smell good though, sort of like banana bread.
Green is the New Black Whipped Cream - PUMPKIN PIE
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.
