At Last

NMNew makeup (that I bought with my own money)! ♥ Just wanted to show you guys what I got since my makeup ban was lifted. New nail polish was definitely high on the priority list. I used to post NOTDs on Instagram a lot… maybe I’ll get back into that! That Revlon nail polish in Persuasion a beautiful plummy red with a gel-like finish. So beautiful.

New base products were also very high on my (long) list of new things to get. Is it just me or is the idea of living with just one foundation throughout an entire year a little crazy? My skin seems to change a lot and I’m not just talking about skin tone. Hmm. Anyway, I’m on the hunt for a good full coverage foundation, but the Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation was on offer at Beauty Bar (45% off until the 18th!) so I grabbed it. It gives light to medium build-able coverage and is a fave of Rae of The RAEviewer. The concealer in the photo is Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage in SC5. Going to save everything I have to say about it for the review! ;)

I’m rolling into midterm exams season right now so posts will be few and far between, but this is a little taste of what you can expect. Any new acquisitions on your end? :) Also let me know what your fave full coverage foundations are, pretty please! :)

    Hi Mariana! I like your blog a lot :) Anyway I’m using Kate by Kanebo Powderless Liquid For Cover. It has medium coverage (but buildable), has a nice matte finish (if you’re not as oily as I am, you might be able to get away without setting it with powder). But I want to try the Happy Skin liquid foundation! Hope you can review it. Thanks!

  2. I got a few stuff off of my wish list during the holidays as well! I got Guerlain Meteorites Light Diffusing Primer, Burberry Lip Cover in Hibiscus and NARS Semi Matte in Schiapp! These were luxury purchases I couldn’t take my mind off of throughout the whole year and they impoverished me so it’s back to drugstore and “reasonable purchases” until about March or June. For now, I’m semi-successful in trimming down my wish list through sheer will power :D

    Cant wait for the reviews! If you dont mind, how much are these? :) I’m currently alternating the Covergirl 3-in-1 foundation, Revlon Colorstay and Naturactor as my everyday base! :)
