Empties and New Discoveries

I’m pretty proud to have empties every month. There are a few basic skincare products, all reviewed, and also, I finished a lipstick! It sounds really ridiculous to be proud of myself for using up a lipstick, but ladies, it’s not easy. However, because I have done this now, my psychological barrier is broken and now I feel like it’s actually not so hard to use up a lipstick. You just have to use it day in day out for a few months. LOL! The La Mer serum didn’t last long, so that makes it even pricier. After using up all these skincare, I still feel the same about them as I reviewed before.

I usually know what I like when it comes to makeup, and I know what my skin likes when it comes to skincare, so it came as a surprise that I discovered something new from samples! I got to try the Becca Backlight Priming Filter from the Anna and Lily Cult Beauty box, and it’s really good. It’s only a 6ml bottle, so I know it’ll be gone soon. I’m thinking of getting a full sized bottle. Yes, it’s that good. It is very lightweight, absorbs into the skin almost immediately while keeping the skin plump, and foundation stays on the skin longer WITHOUT sitting in the pores. Now, that is awesome.

Brands have been coming up with mists left right and centre. My PR samples prove that. They’re all from luxury brands, and the price point shows that. In the same Cult Beauty box I mentioned earlier, I got to try Pixi by Petra’s Hydrating Milky Mist. It’s affordable, and just as good! And that makes it the best. If it performs just as well, and is the most affordable, then isn’t it just the best? Needless to say, I will be repurchasing it.

I wanted to post this much earlier, but my kids decided to get sick at the same time. The girls are OK now, but Ashton still doesn’t have appetite and he’s very cranky and needy. I hope everything will go back to normal soon, including my blood pressure and my sleep! I hope you had a better week than I did 🙂
