A peachy kind of blush properly namned "Innocent Peach" As you may know I don't use blushers. Might give this a go, might give it away.
Another full size polish in a nude shade with a hint of peach called "High class affair". This is the kinda shade that either looks very good on you or like you're dead. Can't wait to find out how it looks on me.
Another gorgeous shade in the mix. This time a pale purple. "Virgin Snow" and it's a full size.
"dramatically different moisturizing lotion+". I had to google what this was for. It's meant to go on your face but I tried it on the back of my hand and it smells awful and feels to thick for my liking. Nope, might use it for handcream or something instead, but it's going nowhere near my face.
It's been ages since I used any kind of face water after having washed my face. I can't remember ever liking one. I will try this when I got brake outs but not on a daily basis. It smells to strong of alcohol.
A pinky corally color that looks more wearable than the other one. This is called "Lounge Lover" and was also a star in their Spring Collection this year. Also a full size.
A BB Cream in the shade 02. I don't know if this is the same one that I tried a while back and didn't like. I'll have to go back and check. If not, I will try it but I don't have any high hopes. Fun to get a make up item after all teh skincare.
A glass nailfile. If they're gonna put a nailfile in the calendars I'd rather see it's a glass one.
It's finally time to crack open the advent calendars. I've been glancing at mine for the past two weeks. I was lucky enough to get given a second one for my birthday. I will do a seperate post on what I got later on.
For now, we will take a peek at what I got day 1.
A glitter polish from Essie named "Tassle Shaker" and a Chubby stick in "07 Super Strawberry" from Clinique.
Every day will be something from Essie and Clinique. 24 Days of joy!!
So I might've snagged one of all the advent calendars already. I had my eye on this before it was released and as soon as it hit the Kicks webshop, I grabbed one before they sold out. I had their own last year and wasn't that impressed by it. Clinique has always been a brand I've glanced at but never tried anything, except for that one fail BB cream a while back. I am so excited to be trying out some, 24, of their stuff. I have no idea what it contains. They have listed all the items on the back but I don't want to know, I want every day to be a surprise!
I really like the subtle design of it too. Looks delicious right?
Have you grabbed any of the calendars yet?
24 Days of Clinique 595SEK (£54.52 $67 and 61.29 Euro)
I totally didn't intend to get this but whils groceryshopping I found a jar with travel sized makeup. Just there is a recipe for disaster, who can refuse travel sized anything? I've never seen makeup in this form before and was rather intrigued. I ended up only picking up a BB Cream from IsaDora.
I have a hate love realtionshiop when it comes to them. I love their nailpolishes but their makeup has been more of misses than hits for me.
Perfect size for trying out but they only had one shade. Luckily, that was a pretty good match for me. The first time I tried it I wans't blown away by it. But I continued using it and now I have a better opinion of it. It glides right on and blends beautifulli into the skin with the warmth of my fingers.
I haven't tried it with a brush yet but I'm sure that would work as well. The formula is very lightweight and still manages to have a bit more coverage to it than your average BB cream. So I like that about it and the fact that it contains SPF 12 and hasn't broken me out.
When it comes to packaging there is alot lacking. The tube is pretty sleek but I don't get the dip end. It's not a pipette and it doesn't pick up enough product to cover your entire face in one go. I tried squeezing the tube and ended up making a hughe mess. Like the formula but not the packaging.
So, I mentioned a feew weeks back that my local Make up Store had some good deals going on, changing every week. One of the deals was a fairly good discount on all of their shadows. How could I pass that up?
I love their new design!
They redid their packaging a while back.
I picked up a fairly neautral taupe/bronze shade. The colour payoff isn't as good as I'm used to from this brand.
Sadly, it is a little powdery.
The name of it is quite fitting somehow.
I like this alot. It is a great shade to just throw on without looking overly done. I haven't used it a ton yet so I can't give it a real review, but I will let you know how I get on with it.
