Most recent purchases?

Recommended Posts

Here are a few of my recent purchases:

 

Ran out entirely of my Shiseido Hydro-Liquid Compact in shade 120.  Interestingly, when I went to get a refill, the lady thought that I was a bit darker, and ended up getting the B40 instead (after doing a half-and-half comparison).  A friend had recommended this shade before, but she never tried it against any other ones, so I guess maybe I'm not quite as pale as I seem hah

 

I've never tried contouring before, so I ordered this Sleek Contour Kit.. Not sure how great it will be, but for $10, I figured why not? lol

 

I ordered this tube of Duo eyelash glue, and unfortunately upon arrival, it was all hardened inside.  It's kinda annoying as I could have bought some down the street, but I haven't been very impressed with that particular shop (long story).  Anyway, when I explained the issue to this seller, they made me send them a photo of it, and asked me to squeeze out the contents (not possible for this kind of container).  Hopefully, they'll send a replacement as this has taken forever.  It's funny, getting more eyelash glue has never been such a hassle lol

 

Anyway, here's a photo of the items:

Nice haul! I'm interested in the foundation you got and will check this out. When I lived in Finland, I used Kanebo foundation and loved it. I'm imagining Shiseido being similar to Kanebo and I'm always on the look out for a new compact foundation :)

Thanks!  It's actually not bad for something with a lighter form of coverage.  Previously, I was using Quo's Smooth Operator foundation, which was a great economical drugstore brand up here in Canada, but they unfortunately discontinued it.  I also like having something in a compact that I can quickly use on the go :)  This particular one is good as you can keep the compact, and just replace the foundation pots in it.

 

I also use Shiseido's Radiant Lifting Foundation, which is tends to have a lot coverage.  Most of the current photos I upload on here are with that one.  For something to go along with full-makeup looks, I've grown to like it more than Revlon's PhotoReady, and found it a bit more practical than Kryolan's TV Paintstick.  I'm still very much a newbie though, so I definitely need to experiment more.  I'll have to look up the Kanebo foundation, too :)

Thanks for the tip on the foundations too! I'll check them out since I haven't tried either.

Recently I purchased:

 

The tarte Miracles from the Amazon kit from QVC.  I LOVE the foundation brush, it's so soft and just the right size.  The foundation is great too, and the palette is perfect for keeping in my purse.

I picked up the entire China Glaze Road Trip collection.  Surprisingly, considering I have 300+ polishes now, I don't have any dupes for these.  They were only $3.25 each at a local nail supply shop and I couldn't resist.

I also bought myself a vintage 1930's vanity for my bedroom.  I used to have one but moved and had to sell it.  I missed having a place to set all my pretties!

Love the vanity!  I got tired of constantly moving everything on and off my computer desk, so I bought a tiny glass one from Ikea recently for $35 (and fell down the snowy hill trying to carry the box home lol).  Having a vanity saves soo much time, I find; definitely a good investment!  Here's a photo of the one I got recently.  It sorta disappears with all my stuff on it:

I agree!  Before I had all my makeup in the bathroom with some stuff on the counter, some stuff in a drawer, and some stuff on a shelf.  I have a bunch of palettes I wasn't using because I just never went to the shelf to look through them.  Now I have it all in one place, it's so nice, and luckily everything fit either on top or in the large drawers.  I just love being able to sit down and really focus on doing my makeup instead of standing in the bathroom mirror with bad lighting.  Your vanity is so cute and compact, nice purchase!

Love the vanities @@CaseyR and @@Lumaday ! I need to do this and get all my things organized. Now I have to look in a few different places and I just get lazy and use the same makeup items while the others just sit there.

 

My travel beauty order with Juvena cleansing powder came today. So excited to try this since I got it on clearance. It came with a few Institute Estederm samples and I'm excited about this. I'm always looking to try French skin care brands.

 

Also my Saks GWP order came. I've been so good not buying any of the Saks or Neiman beauty gift bags in a very long time but this time I couldn't resist. I figured I get use out of the white bag and I got an excuse to order items I wouldn't have ordered otherwise. :) The samples in the bag were so so, nothing exciting for me. (not showing in the picture, the samples are inside)

Thanks!  It definitely makes things much easier.  Now I just have to get a better mirror/lighting setup.  I'm still moving lamps about, so one of those lighted mirrors would probably be a big help, too.

Thanks!  The vanity definitely helps me not lose track of things as much as it's all in reach now lol. Love the bag, and I'll have to check those items out.  Hopefully now that I'm a bit more organized, I won't be as scattered, and I'll be able to experiment and try new items a bit more :)

My Mac Bao Bao order came today. I love the lipstick. I have too many nude lipsticks but still buy more :D I have no idea why I moved away from MAC lipsticks in the past couple of years using other brands. The lipstick today made my wrinkled lips look and feel so much better, better than many high end lipsticks I've used. I'll definitely buy more MAC lipsticks again.

I just ordered the MAC Pro longwear liner in Etcetera and the lipstick in Blankety. Can't wait to get them. What purchases are you waiting on?

I just purchased a face serum by Juice Beauty. I wanted to move towards products that were less harsh on my skin and more natural. It may be breaking me out though.  :unsure:

 

I also bought one of NYX's soft matte lip creams and their brown eyebrow gel. I haven't tried the gel yet because I already have a different one opened, but the lip cream is nice.

I've been on a Colourpop kick lately, and my most recent order just came in yesterday!  I got a contour stick in Dove (this is a back up - I got one in my last order and fell hard for it), a highlighter in Smoke N Whistles, a blush in Birthday Suit (my first blush from them), eye shadow in Nillionaire, Ultra Satin Lip in Alyssa (which is gorgeous!), and Ultra Glossy Lip in Finders Keepers.  They had a flash sale last week and I just couldn't help myself :)

 

That was my first purchase since the end of July (which I'm embarrassed to say is a long time for me).  When I was on vacation then, I picked up a UD All Nighter Spray (I had brought a sample with me and it ran out), MAC lipsticks in Twig and Velvet Teddy, and Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lip in Baci, and I'm totally loving all of those!

My last cosmetic purchase is wet n wild megaglo bronzer duo the new formula in caramel toffee. A bit skeptical with this at first, reading some mix reviews about it. But then it turn out that it's a match to my skin tone. Btw i have olive skin.

I ended up getting the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette. It's really versatile and quality is great.

My favvv recent purchase is a Hyaluronic Acid serum from Restoor Skin Essentials! Was very impressed with their HA% & price. 

So far i'm loving the stuff! I use it with my clinique moisture surge & combined they work like magic!

Also bought a Buxom Lip Plumper / gloss. I bought it mainly for the plumper but sadly i didn't get any results. Just a nice gloss... which i do not rlly care for.
