So my Sephora order has arrived and I am super stoked! I could not wait to use Wen, which was the reason for my order, I got this set, I started with the Fig Cleansing Conditioner, I figured I’m not a big fig person so I’ll use it first. I followed the instructions sort of, it says for short hair to use 10-16 pumps for short hair and that seemed really excessive, so I went with 5 for my first wash and 2 for m second. After my shower I towel dried my hair and then sprayed my trusty Bumble and Bumble Invisible Hairdresser’s Oil Primer and blew my bangs dry. My bangs dry really weird so I prefer to blow dry them unless I plan to pin them back. And after my first use, my hair feels softer, and a bit lighter. I plan to chronicle my journey using Wen so stay tuned!
I decided since I was going ALL out and spending $300.00+ on beauty and hair care again that it was time to finally try Nars Audacious Annabella, once I saw the tube I was hooked, I purposely didn’t try it because right now it’s just too pretty to ruin! I’m really, really into the 50s and 60s right now, and I think this colour will be perfect to channel those old school looks!
I ordered a new small barrel round brush to aid in blow drying my newly acquired bangs, using my current brushes are not really working out well, so I order this Sephora collection one to try. I used it tonight to blow dry my bangs, and I am very happy with the results, and it wasn’t to expensive at $18.
I ordered this Shiseido pressed powder, I’m hoping that it will be a good replacement for my current Nars powder foundation that was expensive and I feel is just okay. I think the Nars was just okay for a couple reasons. I think the colour was a bit off for me. I went with Mont Blanc, and I think I needed a lighter shade. I think with the condition that my face was in didn’t help either, it’s starting to sit better now, but if I have a blemish with flaky dry skin then it starts to look bad. And towards the end of the day my face starts to change colour, like it oxidizes, which is annoying. I know now that Nars and expensive is not always better, I was spoiled with my previous pressed powder (Chanel Peach Tendre). So I went the translucent route this time, we’ll see how it goes.
I also picked up Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, the product information says it’s the best of a BB and a CC cream. Now I love my Shiseido BB, but it’s expensive, and there are only three shades, and the light shade is a little off for me, so I decided to try something else. I read a lot of reviews and I decided to go with this one. It’s offered in more shades, is a bigger size for less money, and is a brand I am familiar with.
I bit the bullet and invested in Tweerzerman cuticle nippers, J recently broke ours, in his defense we bought them at Wal-Mart and the quality wasn’t there. I tried them (I get hang nails like crazy!) And I am very impressed, after nipping a few things here and there I am very happy with my $30 investment. Now I just hope that J doesn’t break them on me…I also picked up some old favourites: Benefit POREfessional, my go to Clinique foundation, Philosophy Purity and Microdelivery. As always once I finish what I am currently using I will start reviewing my new products, so bear with me please! And on that note, it’s time to end!
All for now,
