Herro herrrrrrroooo guys!! =D
LONG TIME NO BLOG. Just the usual. Been SUPER busy with school. Just finished 5 exams in 3 weeks (I can't help but think if they intentionally do this to test our limit...). Blah blah blah XD
So today I just have a rather random post to share... since the Sephora Friends and Family 20% off sale is coming up on 10/18/2012-10/31/2012 (mark your calenders gals!) I thought it'd be fun to share with you guys what's on my shopping list =D
I'm sure you see it coming. HECK YES. I need 20% on this foundation! Seriously I can't wait to put my order in for this foundation >w<
I was gonna get this from Sephora but I think I'm just gonna order it from Amazon because I found better deals there (I found the best deal on Sasa.com BUT I'm scared if I order more than $100 I'll be charged custom fees, so Amazon seems a better choice). Is this miracle water to me? No. But I actually did see a difference in my skin. My skin definitely feels and looks more plump and hydrated when I use this toner. I "might" have been seeing some evening out of my complexion but honestly if I don't get much sleep (which I don't really nowadays) then the toner is not gonna make it any better. But anyway, I do want to commit to using this toner. Now I have officially aged another year I want to upgrade my skincare and have more anti-aging products.
I might get this, I might not. I currently do have a bottle of this and I'm almost running out. I really do like this sunscreen for colder/drier fall/winter and even spring days (I tried using this sunscreen in the summer it did make me greasy so I had to opt for something else). It's really perfect/suitable for this weather for my skin now, but I just want to try something new lol. If I don't find anything I will repurchase another small bottle of this.
So I really do want to invest in a good sunscreen. I've been really looking into The La Mer SPF 30 UV Protecting Fluid
It comes with a very hefty price tag, but on the Nordstrom website it looks like it does contain a lot of benefit to the skin. So I went to the store to take a look at it today but the ingredients don't look terribly exciting to me O_O (but I do like the texture). Luckily seeing me at war the MUA at the La Mer was so nice to just volunteer to give me a sample to try out at home, cuz I'm not gonna know if there's any beauty benefit unless I actually do try the products out you know XD so while I was there I asked for a sample for the foundation as well. Why not XD
Very excited to try these ^_^
Besides La Mer, the other sunscreens I'm considering include the Dior Snow
Although I'm not that eager to try it out... I just generally don't have much luck with Dior skin products -_-
Also looking into a Korean sunscreen from HERA called Sun Mate Daily
So far read and seen a lot of positive reviews and is the cheapest of the bunch XD but it will take about 3 weeks for this product to ship to me... O_O
Okay now back to my Sephora shopping list XD
Been eyeing this product for a while now. It's supposed to make your legs look super nice and glowy. I may or may not get this. What's the point of getting this in the winter months =_= but then again I want to purchase it when there's a sale cuz I don't think I'll ever want to purchase this at full price.
Again, may or may not purchase XD (I guess this is more like a want list than an actual shopping list ahaha) A very close friend of mine is really into perfumes and she actually chose this fragrance for me because she wanted to challenge me to try something that I don't normally go for XD and I actually do really like this perfume! So we'll see =D
Another may or may not purchase. Been really wanting to try the MUFF Duo Matte Powder Foundation. I mainly want it to use it in conjunction with my Mat Velvet+. But I already have my beloved Lancome compact foundations -.- so I can't really justify buying this. So again, we'll see XD
Okay that's pretty much it for my shopping list! What's on your shopping list???? Share with me! =D
Onto other random stuff...
I officially jumped on the burning-candles-for-the-fall bandwagon XD
.... only to come home and found that we don't have a lighter at home LMAO. FAIL. Haha can't blame myself cuz I'm just not a candle person. But I really like these scents ^_^ For some reason been really wanting to make my room smell like food -__-|||| I think it's because these scents to me are very warm and comforting? lol! Gotta buy a lighter so I can try them out.
I also got this hair bun thingy from H&M
I forgot whose video I saw on Youtube but someone was saying this is exactly like the sock bun method but even better. Since I can't do a sock bun to save my life, I was excited to try this. I still can't quite figure it out O_O any of you have had any success with this?????? (How come the girls make it look so easy on youtube haha)
A complimentary gift from Aveda =D
It's from their aroma therapy and I was able to choose an oil that I want to make into my "perfume." (if you're part of the Aveda's reward program then you get gift vouchers for this for your bday!! At least that's what they're doing now lol) I chose Lavender and some other herb I can't remember XD but it's very calming... very zen... XD planning to use it on my wrists at bedtime to help me relax.
Finally... I got yet another lipstick from MAC. Gawd I can't seem to stop my lipstick frenzy >.<
The color is in Ravishing, a really nice peachy nude =D
The color is a little bit off here since it's yellow lighting.
Somewhat fair presentation of the lip color here =D
Okay that's all I have today guys ^_^ I'm off to bed to sleep... and sleep... and sleep....
