Review: Bobbi Brown CC Cream SPF 35+++

It’s the alphabet cream again. You guys should know by now that Bobbi Brown BB Cream is my favourite. I’ve been featuring it in most of my FOTD posts because well, I really like it! So when I got the chance to test the CC Cream, I was not as skeptical as I’d be. CC Creams are colour correcting creams and Bobbi Brown promises instantly healthy looking even toned skin with the use of this CC Cream as a base. I was sent Pale Nude (there is also Warm Nude for darker complexions) and this is my review.

Review: Dior Addict Fluid Sticks in Mirage and Pandore

Dior Addict Fluid Sticks are lip hybrids. There have been so many lip hybrids lately, it’s getting a little boring. Truth be told, I received these a few months ago, even before I got pregnant, so it’s definitely a delayed review. I have my reasons for it though. The main one is no secret, with being sick and all, and another is because I don’t know how I feel about them. I’m sure by now, you’ve read a lot about them, that there is no wax in the ingredients, and all sorts of raves. Admittedly, I was very excited when I first got them. I tried them and tried them again but still couldn’t form a solid opinion.

Review: Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder in Candlelight

I’ve read a lot about┬áKevyn Aucoin’s sculpting powder and highlighter as a powerful duo, 2 products that give you instant believable cheekbones in a few minutes. I thought I’d pick one to try, and since I only have 2 powder highlighters in my collection, I don’t mind adding another one. I have enough eye shadows, blushes and lipstick to last me for at least a decade, but highlighters… I don’t use them much at all, and never had that penchant for them. The Candlelight I have is in the new packaging. I read that for the same price, we’re actually getting less product and also without a brush. For me, the shocker came in the size.

2014 Quarter 1 Empties

I took these photos nearing the end of March but didn’t get to post them. This is just a photo documentation for myself on the stuff I used up the first quarter of 2014. There were some I had to toss (last photo) because they were very likely expired but I’m also glad to see some variety here. Bath samples, lots of skincare, even a few makeup items that I used up. I even used up a perfume. I never had an empty perfume bottle! Now, back to collecting these empties for the second quarter!
