Another month bites the dust. Oowwwww!!
This month, it’s more about sunscreens. I talk about the heatwave a lot and it’s no joke. Kids are getting sick and many get sunstroke. There’s a virus going round the schools and we have one girl down in the family, and another about to go down. We’re isolating the girls from the baby boy with hopes the little one doesn’t get it. It would really really suck otherwise. And the humidity. I feel like I could suffocate just by walking out of my air conditioned room. Staying indoors is really the best way to go, but life goes on. So we suck it up by drinking gallons of water and protecting our skin with lots of sunscreen. As I’m writing this at 2pm, the sky looks a little overcast. I’m hoping for a thunderstorm. Let’s cool down the surface of the earth just for a little, eh?
As you can see, 2 bottles of sunscreen emptied. My bottle of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle is also gone. It’s been my scent for 2 years, and I think it’s time to move on (I purchase a bottle of Chloe EDT to replace it and have been loving it!). The Estee Lauder ANR Eye is not enough for me anymore, so I won’t be purchasing it again. I have a richer one from EL which I’m enjoying. The Bobbi Brown BB Cream has been my favourite for a long time, and I’ve used a lot of it, but it’s 3 years now so we bid goodbye. There isn’t much left in there anyway.
I have been using a few things quite religiously for a few months, and thought I want to show you. These are the few things I want to throw into my empties bag too.
I love love love the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Concealer and I have been using it for 6 months. I think I’m at the bottom of the tube because there isn’t much left, but I have a few concealers left. Once I use them up, I’m going to repurchase this. The Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara is a good dry texture that separates and defines. Gives a bit of volume but not over the top. The Clinique browscara is my brow staple but once I’m done with this, I’m going on a break and just use the pencils I still have. The Shu Uemura brow pencil you see here is getting really short, and I’d like to get rid of it. I’m also using 2 eye liners for variety, and loving how versatile plum and brown are as eye liners!
I use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette in Diffused Light to set my concealer and there’s a little dip in the middle already. I don’t use the Diorskin Nude Tan Aurora Bronzer much, but I do try to use it more often. As you can see, there’s a little pan action. The cream blush you see here is a limited edition one from Lunasol and it gives the perfect barely there flush that no other blushes do. As you can see, it’s well loved.
These are the things in my makeup bag that I put on my vanity, things that I use whenever I apply makeup. I’m hoping to see a few things gone (the mascara will be chucked out in 2 months) in the next few months, or maybe more pan action.
I’m not really on a reducing mission, but it just gives me satisfaction seeing things put to good use.
Now, come April. I welcome you.
