*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, Guerlain Rouge G, Guerlain Meteorites Brush, Maybelline Elixir Lipglss and Lorac Pro Palette|
|Say Yes to Carrots and Blueberries, Caudalie Divine Oil & Hand Lotion|
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 Palette, Guerlain Meteorites Brush, Guerlain Rouge G in & Maybelline Elixir in Couture Caviar|
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.
