With the change in weather, my skin tends to get quite dry and the chore of moisturising twice a day becomes obligatory which did lead to a little bit of skincare shopping. But somehow, a few beauty bits happened to sneak into my basket and so, I come with a haul!
Clinique's Great Skin Great Deal 3-Step Skincare Set
The Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion is a product I swear by and is what I originally went shopping for. Luckily for my bank account, the full size moisturiser was available in a set with the 3-Step products for the same price which I can't complain about. Along with that, Clinique had a gift with purchase offer hence the cute makeup bag and travel size goodies. I absolutely fell in love with the Clinique All About Eyes which came in the bag and I will have a review up as soon as I purchase the full size. Trust me, it's a good one! The bag also came with the Superdefense Moisturiser which I have been layering with Dramatically Different when my skin is extra dry and it has been helping. I also got a mini High Impact Mascara, I didn't really give this a fair try yet and therefore it hasn't impressed me but if that changes, I will let you know! Lastly, it came with a lipstick which I'm not a big fan of but it does look cute nonetheless.
Benefit's Posie Tint
Ever since I tried the mini Posie Tint from the Feelin' Dandy lip and cheek kit, I have been eyeing the full size but couldn't really convince myself that it was worth it. Although, I have been super busy lately with University, meetings and what not which means my makeup has to last all day long, or at least still manage to look okay. One thing that manages to slide off my face way too quickly, is my blush and knowing the Benefit tints do the job when it comes to keeping your blush on all day, I was sort of sold. The shade is a bit too sheer for my liking, but I did purchase it for the sake of applying it under my blush and it lasts a lot longer!
Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW Foundation
I am a little bit late on this product, but I do remember it being huge at some point and since I've been on the search for a new foundation that is light, gives more coverage than a BB cream and is basically perfect for everyday, I thought I'd give this a try. I haven't really tried it properly yet because I do think it needs a setting powder to give me the base I like, but once I decide whether I like it or not, I will do a review for those who, like me, have yet to give it a go!
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Sex Machine
NARS just opened a counter in the Sephora I shop in not too long ago and to be quite frank, I didn't have anything to purchase in mind but being so excited for actually having a NARS counter nearby, I was eager to try something out. Not owning any lip pencils whatsoever, I thought I'd give their Velvet Matte Lip Pencil a go to see if it makes any difference with how long my lipstick stays on and fingers are crossed, it will do the job. Speaking of, what NARS products would you recommend me trying? Let me know down below!
Shop The Haul
And that is all! I would like to apologise for my lack of content but I have been wanting to reorganise my thoughts, better my content, come up with better post ideas which you will hopefully see from now on.
Until next time,
