March 2018: Favorites And Flops

Time for Favorites and Flops!

I am doing a No Beauty Buy April month, so I am going to show you the items that I didn't necessarily just purchase, but instead items that I reach for over and over. Those are the holy grail items!

This month is 4 Holy Grail items that I can't live without! Two are new, two are not, but all 4 have permanent places in my beauty rotation.

Sephora Colorful Cheek Ink Gel in Peony: Has this made it to the faves before? It should have! This multi-tasker can be used on cheeks and lips. It is a pretty light pink that brightens up my face. It is a cream, but fairly sheer, so I just dab a drop between my fingers and then pat along my cheekbones. I use whatever is left to pat on my lips for a touch of color. Swatched on my wrist below.

Bio-Oil: How did I live without this stuff?! Also a brill multi-tasker, I apply this on my face directly (thank you, New England Winter that won't end) and on my dry spots. It has hardly any fragrance but does feel slightly oily (duh) until it sinks in.

Lipstick Queen Date Night Lipstick in Good Catch: I saw this on display at Ulta and from the display photo, it looked like MYPERFECTPINK lipstick. Good news is - it is! I waited until we had testers at work and I wore it for a couple shifts before purchasing. It is a lightweight, creamy, pigmented, dream of a lippie. Huzzah! Swatched below.

The Body Shop Japanese Camellia Cream: This has also made it to the list before. I do need to re-purchase this but it won't be until May! This is a whipped butter consistency (they call it "velvet" but whatevs) that smooths on the body nicely, leaves no stickiness, and has the most heavenly smell ever.

Swatched are the Lipstick Queen Date Night Lipstick in Good Catch and Sephora Colorful Cheek Ink Gel in Peony below.

Formula 10.0.6 Keep Me Clean Clarifying Face Wipes: Ulta was out of my OG Wipe My Face Off with the grapefruit scent, so I tried these because they are also Formula 10.0.6. That was a stupid move! These smell different (not better), clean less (mascara left all over my face) and it took a whole second wipe to get my makeup off (too much waste). Back to the pink package for me!

What did you love or hate this month? Let me know in the comments!

November 2018: Empties & Tossed Report

I began the first half of the month with nothing in my Empties bucket, but by the end of the month I was out of everything! I ended up with ...
