Recent Beauty Purchases

*all items purchased with my own money

I think I’ve been really good with the beauty purchases for the last few months.  But like all junkies, I slipped here and there.  Nothing too wallet-breaking, mainly staples that I needed.

Say Yes to Carrots and Blueberries, Caudalie Divine Oil & Hand Lotion

 Caudalie Divine Oil –  I love how this smells.  It’s very light and non-greasy, I love to put it on my feet at night.  I like the hand cream too, but it doesn’t compare to the L’Occitane hand cream.

Say Yest to Blueberries – just bought this.  Couldn’t find the Say Yes to Carrots version so picked this up instead.  I like these as they have no silicones and parabens.  This also has a higher spf rating than the carrots version so I knew I wanted to try it.  But alas, it’s a total fail.  It leaves a white cast all over my face, the way some sunscreens do.  Pity, but will have to return it.

Say Yes to Carrots Night cream- I really enjoy this version of the Say Yes brand so I absolutely had to grab this when I saw it at my local Ulta.  So far so good, leaves my skin nice and soft.  I think I may need something just a little richer though.  Will keep using this though, on top of my various serums.

Lorac PRO – I’m so excited to finally have my hands on this one.  The mixture of mattes and shimmers make this palette so lust-worthy.  I’m still playing with it and getting to know it, but I think I’m going to have a lot of fun with this one. So…do I still “need” Urban Decays Naked 3 if I have this??

Guerlain Meteorites Brush (old one) – A new brush recently came out that is supposed to be better for working with the reformulated Guerlain Meteorites.  I have one of the old powders and enjoy it, so I won’t spring for the new formulation any time soon.  I knew I had to get my hands on the “old” brush before it disappeared off the shelves and so far so good.

Guerlain Rouge G in 06 Garance.  Oh my gosh, this is so moisturizing!  I love it.  I think the price is ridiculous, but I can see why folks go ga-ga over this. I figure I will get more colours when the Sephora VIB sale comes around again so I can save a little bit.  But truly, this is my second favourite nude after the amazing YSL Shine Rouge Couture #9

Maybelline Elixirs Lipgloss in Caviar Couture – oh my gosh, I love this.  To be honest, I was totally thrown off course by the packaging and thought that I was buying a lipstick.  I bought this colour coz it’s a little different for me and I wanted something that looked different from my usual red lips and nudes.  I’ve pretty much worn it non-stop since the day I got it.  I love the colour, and it’s super-moisturizing.  I definitely want to try more colours.

Here are the swatches, the Maybelline Gloss is on the left, it’s a very vampy colour. 

Hope you enjoyed this short round of my recent beauty purchases.  I actually have other purchases to post, but I want to do it separately.  What about you, what have you bought and are loving (or hating) lately?

Thanks for stopping by and stay blessed.
