I’m bored. And my eyes, or LEFT eye to be specific is bugging me. I played with some eye shadows the other day, and now I’m paying for it. And when I’m bored and my eye hurts, I tend to internet window shop. You know, fill up my basket with things I’ve been wanting to try, but I just don’t hit CLICK. Not yet at least! These are some of the things in my basket at the moment.
Tarte – Rainforest After Dark Colored Clay Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte is one of those brands I really USED to love, especially their blushes! I haven’t bought much from the brand lately to be honest, but this limited edition colored clay eye and cheek palette with a bronzer, a highlighter, a blush, and six eye shadows keeps popping up on EVERY blog, so call me intrigued to say the least. Most beauty bloggers seem to enjoy it, so I’ll be swatching it at Sephora. Something like this I need to swatch before I buy. It’s never in freakin’ stock though! But it sure looks like a great travel palette, hey? And who’s going on a long road trip in a couple of weeks here? THIS GIRL. And that dusty rose blush looks really lovely!
MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Kiss Pop Lip Color Stick
CAUDALIE Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil
Another product that I’ve seen reviewed on some of my favourite blogs like Mostly Sunny that I have my eye on. It has a blend of six 100 percent natural plant and essential oils and soothes sensitive skin prone to redness or irritation, and repairs the skin’s barrier. Hello, made for me facial oil or what? Definitely planning on picking up a sample to test out soon!
Tom Ford Velvet Orchid
I adore Black Orchid, but I will admit that it’s not for everyone. It’s a fragrance that needs some getting used to. But this? Sounds like a gentler version of Black Orchid so I need to smell it! With notes of cool citrus, dramatic petals(whatever the heck that is Tom Ford), honey, and rum it sounds like another rich, spicy, and intense floral form Tom Ford that I’m gonna like! I mean RUM. In a fragrance. I’m pretty sure I was a pirate in a past life…
Tom Ford Velvet Orchid -$122
Origins Smarty Plants CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector
I really, REALLY want to order this Origins Smarty Plants CC SPF 20 Skin Complexion Corrector! It’s actually in my HBC(The Bay) basket and Sephora one too. DOUBLE BASKET. I had a sample and just loved it. Light coverage, but just evened out my skin tone enough. And it felt so darn good on! I really want it, but I have so, so many foundations and alphabet creams that I really can’t justify getting it right now. But SOON. Soon you shall be mine…. Maybe even sooner, because The Bay has $10 off a beauty purchase of $75 or more. But that means filling up my basket with something else! Like it’s so hard to do. 😀
So much beauty products, so little time! Story of my makeup addicted life I tell ya. Now to just figure out what irritates my eyes! I can’t figure out for the life of me what it is. It has to be an ingredient in shadows or mascara or liner that I’m allergic to, because my itches like a MOFO after and is blurry for a couple of days. It’s like the worst nightmare a beauty blogger can have I tell ya.
