♡ physicians formula nude wear ♡

Firstly, could this packaging be any cuter?  I got these cuties as a Christmas gift and have been trying them out for a while.

Nude Wear Glowing Nude Blush (left)

Haven’t used this as much as I would like because it is very shimmery, but I have heard that this shimmer is more of a layer on top so perhaps that will disappear with some use.

Nude Wear Touch of Glow Foundation (centre)

This is probably my favorite foundation of all time! I can’t say much about the little applicator brush that comes with because I feel it soaks up a lot of the product, however I do use it to dot the foundation on my face and I’m just using my fingers to spread it evenly. I do have a foundation brush I just haven’t got around to washing it. Oops.

Despite the cuteness of this chubby little thing I don’t like it all that much. It’s just very sparkly. As someone with oily skin I can say extra sparkle doesn’t look cute all over your face. Even trying to utilize this as a highlighter gets tricky. There is just too much sparkle! I also feel it might be a touch too dark for my skin at the moment since I’ve become extra pale over winter.

Some not very good swatches 😦

♡ a new love ♡

Stumbled upon some very cute bags from Bao Bao Issey Miyake and had to share them, although they are just a “tad” pricey I still love the designs, and how the bags can be many different shapes depending on how you use them.  I feel these have a very sleek, futuristic feel to them especially with the simple shapes and  minimal embellishments.

♡ beauty wishlist ♡

Hello lovelies! I’ve posted in a while. Sorry 😦 I made this wishlist of sorts a while ago because I was having a major window-shopping spree online.

I don’t know too much about TheBalm but their packaging reminds me so much of Soap & Glory. It’s super cute. Anyways I’ve never been able to figure out if Soap & Glory is cruelty free or not, but from what I’ve read I’m fairly certain TheBalm is. Don’t quote me on that ok….just in case.

 If I can find some more information about them then these are definitely a few things I would want to try.  Here we go…

beauty wishlist

1. En Root Dry Shampoo: I really would like a good dry shampoo since my hair has a tendency to get extremely oily, especially in spring and summer.

2. En Root Hair Spray: I don’t usually use a lot of hair spray except now that I’m waiting for my fringe/bangs to grow out a good hair spray really is necessary.

3. Strawberry Nourishing Facial Serum: I have a thing for serums and strawberries.

4. Dandelion Skin Brightening Moisturizer: brightening is always a good thing since I never sleep.

5. Rose Face Cleanser: Possible option to replace Proactiv (expensive!) with if it ends up being a good product. It probably smells a lot better too.

That’s everything that I’m hoping to try. Actually I’ve also been eyeing up a couple things from Too Faced… I need to stop.

*Wrote this a while ago and forgot to post! Still looking into these products some more.
