Project Make A Dent #2

It’s been a while since I followed up with this Project Make A Dent. If you missed the first one, or if you don’t know what this is about, please click here where I explained it. For the first project, I cheated by using up all products close to finishing. I’m happy to report they were all gone in a couple of months. So now, I want to pick some other stuff, either to use up, or to really make a dent in it.

Review: Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Swirl Compact SPF30PA++

Who isn’t familiar with CC Creams by now? You aren’t? Where have you been, dude? It was all about BB Creams and now I think most brands already came up with CC Creams. CC Creams are usually colour correcting creams, and this one by Clinique is no different. The only difference, compared to the rest I’ve tried, is that this comes in a compact.

My Current Bodycare Routine

I’ve never really stuck to a particular routine except for applying body lotions once in a while, but when I’m pregnant, I’m a little more fussy. My belly stretches a lot more during the third trimester, and for the last 2 pregnancies, I developed a rash from the sudden skin changes. So for my 3rd pregnancy, I’m prepared, hoping for the best. Mainly, my focus is on my belly, hips and thighs, and I want to keep them well hydrated. I’ve been neglecting my feet for like, forever, so what the heck, I bought the foot cream as well. The hand cream is a repurchase, as you can read my previous review here. So I guess I must really like this hand cream. I’ve never repurchased any before :-)

New Dior 5 Couleur Eye Shadow Swatches

I went to have a look at all the Dior 5 Couleur Eye Shadow palettes the other day and a few caught my eye. I took swatches of all the testers they have, but they don’t have the Bar palette. I guess it’s no biggie, since I’ve been reading lots of reviews on this particular palette anyway :-) The pictures are taken under fluorescent lighting, so it’s a little cooler. I tried correcting the colours as best I could, but they’ll give you a rough idea of what the colours look like. I’ll also give you my first impressions of the palettes, feeling them only with my fingers, so the brief reviews might not be too accurate. The colours are swatched dry on unprimed skin, clockwise from top left, ending with the centre shade. Without much ado…
