Yves Rocher mini haul (by my momma)

My mom was out shopping so I texted her "get my any black liquid eyeliner" because I realized that I'm never getting anything done and she got home with this! How sweet of her.
Actually, that was my very first black eyeliner and I got it about five years ago so it'll be nice to see if it's as good as I remember it. Plus a tiny pack of tiny lipsticks that came in five, but I chose the bright ones of course, my mom rarely wears brights so she got the other three, plus a lip balm and a tiny shower gel that smells like red apples.

Bouquet de dates


 Whenever I'm at the airport, which has already happened like two times this year because I seem to travel a shitload, I always happen to find L´occitane's small summerscented hand creams at 30% off, which is nice since they aren't even expensive to begin with. Last year (I think) I got a blue one smelling of cocoa flowers which has gone steady with me in my bag ever since, but as I began to run out I took my trip to Barcelona as a smooth way of getting a new one. So I got this, smelling like a bouquet of dates, and it smells like it good. Every time I moisturize my hands someone says "what's that smell? Can I have some?".
Of course you can, because everyone should smell this nice.

That's a very big picture of my face


Simple face and super frosty lips to an impulse buy of ARIEL LIP BALM GUYZ. Purple and glitter and the smell of childhood - who could resist that?
It was a long time ago since I used my Body Shop eyeshadow, which I used to wear everyday about a year ago. It's just a dark casual brown, no biggie, but it does add kind of an extra dimension. Buy maybe that's just because I'm not used to it anymore.

 My usual Wet'n'wild eyebrow shadow, Kicks liquid eyeliner (I refuse to admit it's empty, I want it moar), Kicks kohl pencil in white (inner corner of eyes and lower lashline), and Lancôme hypnose mascara. Invisible blush (Viva la diva in Paparazzi) and that eyeshadow, no 4 from The Body Shop.


Oh, and guess who's glasses are broken....

Lush eyeshadow thingy?

 My sister, the eternal shopper, got this one with her order from Lush but figured she'd never use it so gave it to me. I've never really worn green eyeshadow but I could give it a whirl since a stroke on the hand showed me a more golden side of it. It looked really nice actually!
I could use something to give me some initiative. I'm actually thinking about asking a store in my town to start selling my underwear, if I could just get around to doing it...

Love & Toast body lotion

 I was really in a shopping mood a few days ago and saw this one at 75% off so I don't think I really splurged, plus I really needed a new body lotion because mine seems to disappear as easily as lip balms in a purse!

The first impression I got of this was "sea salt and freshness" which also convinced me to but this. My previous experience with Love & Toast was a sample of their scent Gin Blossom but it reminded me too much of being sixteen and stealing alcohol from dad and then throwing up in the park :(. In other words: their products smell is not the usual, they make you think a little bit about what it is that just got through your nose up your brain.

I first used it today and I realized that it mostly smells like lemon zest and green stuff. It demands some work to use but sinks fast into the skin makes you feel soft but not sticky. The scent lingers on for quite a while too. I'd recommend this to anyone who's asking because I don't think the original price is that much either.

Oh, and of course it's vegan, cruelty free and all in all a good buy!

Empties OUT



Ran out of this Exuviance toner. As I previously stated I no longer use Exuviance as a 3-step program because it completely ruins my skin but every now and then I've used this toner remove excess dirt and oil. It's a concentrate so first you wet your cotton pad and then add a few drops of it, otherwise your poor face will flake off completely of dryness. But when used properly it's good ad its job, but I will not repurchase this. I already got my hands on a Nivea one I think, I was in need at the grocery store the other day and found one. I've only used it twice but it seems quite promising.

Aussie's hair masks are rumored to be really good, but I wasn't at all as mesmerized as everyone else. The 3 minute miracle is good, it smells like bubble gum and makes your hair soft. It doesn't really feel that moisturizing though, because isn't that what conditioners should do? Oh well, I'll probably buy this one again, but it's not on the top of my list at the moment.
