I hate that I have not had the chance to blog, but I am working like crazy to get things finished and more manageable at work so I can spend the nights at home updating my blog and not working. Please be patient - I did upload photos today, so hopefully I can start blogging here this weekend.
If you haven't figured it out already, you probably have realized I have a soft spot for Bare Escentuals, and everything about them. One of my best friends gave me a gift certificate to the Bare Escentuals boutique at our local mall for my birthday, and I finally had the opportunity to take a gander around and find something to buy!
How was everyone's Valentine's Day? Mine was great, especially after I went to the mall to pick up some of the new MAC Hello Kitty collection (pictures to follow). I went by my mom's house to give her and my little sister their little gifty for Valentine's day (I got each a blush from the Hello Kitty collection) and my mom had a gift waiting for me!
Swatches below match the quad from left to right. The colors are extremely pigmented, even the lightest shade, and this is one stroke with a sponge applicator.
Swatch on the lips below - I apologize for the funky look of my lips - I was wearing a darker shade of lipstick during the day, so I had a little of that left behind.
After what seems to have been the longest winter ever, it was so nice to open my email this morning and find these bright lights for your nails! Sephora's new OPI collection for the spring is gorgeous, with 6 new shades ranging from bright oranges to beautiful bubble gum pinks.
For quite some time I have seen the Kirkland Signature by Borghese at Costco and wondered if I should try it. I'll be honest, I love the Avon skincare lines I use, but wanted a serum to use under my lotion to help prevent aging, as well as supplement my daily routine. Over the weekend I decided to try the Borghese, as I was debating between the Olay Regenerist Serum I've used in the past and the Kirkland Signature by Borghese Defying Wrinkle Defense Serum.
I have to admit - I am thrilled with this product, and I've only been using it for a handful of days. It has the feel of the Smashbox Photofinish Primer, in that it smooths and and makes your skin feel like velvet. The only difference is you use this under your moisturizer, not over. I have noticed a difference in my skins texture and I feel like it has smoothed and evened out the skin, allowing makeup application to that much simpler.
