Recent Purchases Including The New Marc Jacobs Air Blush

With Marky home for just a couple of more weeks, I’ve been shopping a bit more than usual. More so for her as I like to stock her up(and maybe spoil her) as much as I can before she heads back to California. If we can get something here that she uses or needs, it’s by all means better for my wallet because of the lousy exchange rate. But of course, a few things slip into my shopping basket that are for ME hahaha!

Marc Jacobs Air Blush #502 Lines and Last Night

Man, I love this New Marc Jacobs Air Blush! I’ve been wearing it every day since I got it. The colour is a perfect peachy pink and the texture is sublime. It’s a powder that just melts into the skin and blends so easily and perfectly onto cheeks. There’s just the right amount of glow and it lasts all day. I’d love to get another, but seriously this is HUGE and how many more blushes does this blush fiend need? Don’t answer that question  😛

RMS Unpowder, Clinique Chubby In The Nude, MAC Velvetease, Marc Jacobs Air Blush

The RMS Unpowder is something I’ve been using a lot this summer. This is the tinted version in 01, but it’s the same powder as the untinted one. It’s so fine and virtually invisible on the skin, but boy does it ever minimize pores and does a great job at setting foundation and keeping my t-zone shine free. Plus I love that it’s talc free, silicone free, perfume free and paraben free.

Clinique Chubby In The Nude($29) was a why not I’ll try it kind of purchase, and I actually really like it a lot. This is the lightest shade 02 Abundant Alabaster which isn’t very alabaster at all. If you are paler than me which at the moment I am NC20 in MAC talk, then unfortunately you won’t find a shade to match. It’s creamy, blends easily with fingers and looks natural on the skin. It’s not full coverage, but is buildable to medium coverage I’d say. And that’s why I like it because it’s NOT full coverage like most foundation sticks. Like have you swatched that new Hourglass one? HOOWEE loads of mask-like pigment baby! Not for me at all! I like using this Chubby Stick to just even out my skin tone a bit and cover up redness, and it does that perfectly for me. I do like setting it with a bit of the RMS Unpowder though, and it lasts for the day. Fast and easy!

MAC Velvetease Lip Pencil in the shade Anything Goes is AMAZING. If you can still find this in stores then grab it. Matte, comfy, so easy to apply, lasts FOREVER without drying my lips-I’ve ordered a back up already. It’s the perfect pinky red shade!

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector Light Bisque 2

This is a great dark circle corrector that’s creamy, which is perfect for my aging eyes.

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector Light Bisque 2

You don’t need a lot, so be careful when you dab it on because the doe foot pulls a LOT of product out. And I am NOT one of those crazies that puts a ton of concealer under my eyes. Personally, I just use two dots just on my darkness, and then blend with either my fingers or the tiny tip of my beauty blender and that’s it. The peachy shade does a great job at brightening up my eyes which lately I need as for some reason I haven’t been sleeping all that well.

I repurchased the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist($58). What can I say, I like it. A lot! I love using this especially when I shower in the evening but it’s still too early to put my nighttime skincare on. I spray this on my face and it soothes my dry skin just enough that I don’t feel the need to put any serums or creams on until I go to bed a couple of hours later. It works for me.

The Hylamide C25 Stabilized Vitamin C Booster($38) is a staple in my skincare routine, and now in Marky’s as well as she loves it and stole mine. It’s a great, affordable Vitamin C serum that works pretty well at lightening up spots and acne marks. This is a new bottle for me, plus I got another for Marky to take with her to college.

And lastly, the Murad Clarifying Wipes($22) I repurchased to take with me on The College Road Trip #2. Yeah, we are driving Marky back to California. Again haha. You see, she’s moving into a new apartment September 1 and we are helping her AGAIN. But we’re also suckers for road trips and loved the last college road trip, so it was a unanimous decision to do it again. Although, we are going a different route this time on the way there, so that’ll be fun. I think. Is Utah fun? You tell me LOL! Anyways, I like having these wipes in my backpack to refresh my face in hot sweaty weather. Terry likes them too and will use one when I offer him one, so that’s something. And I find wiping my face when it’s hot and sweaty really makes a difference in breakouts appearing. Plus, it’s a good way to make sure you reapply sunscreen again!

What are some of your recent shopping loves? Or Repurchases? And have you any ideas about things to do and see in Salt Lake City? 

  • Tara Shelli Coe

    You look amazing!

  • That blush is gorgeous but I still can’t justify that splurge eespecially because I’m the type that buys an item here and there all the time! Can you do a review of the foundation stick (Clinique?) I got a sample but it’s the wrong shade so I can’t even try it out!

    • Sure! I’ll do that! I have another foundation everyone wants me to review, so I’ll do both at the same time!

  • We’ve only been in Utah once, LOL, but it was kind of blah. BUT THAT IS THE STATE WITH CROWN BURGER. You know, the pastrami sandwich burgers??? They were pretty good, but get a junior, LOL.

    I was curious about the Clinique stick! But I wasn’t sure what shade because Clinique foundation shades can be kinda wonky. And the blush looks fabulous, but I only wear like four anyway, so I really can’t get another one, lol.

    I never even thought about using a mist right after the shower when it’s too early to put my evening skincare on, lol. I just put the skincare on, LOL. Like whatever I’ll do it now because later I’ll be lazy as F* and I don’t want to wash my face AGAIN *whine whine whine*. That’s a great idea! But probably I won’t, because lazy as F*, LOL.

    • Oh those! Ok, I’ll have to put that burger on the list! Is it in Salt Lake City?
      Yeah I agree about Clinique shades-they’re always so DARK.
      And yeah! Try a mist, but it has to be a hydrating one. This one works well because it does have camellia oil in it, so look for something like that.

      • Yeah, it’s called Crown Burgers – it’s a local chain only in SLC, so there are several all over the place. I got a milkshake there, too 😀

      • YASSSS ok thanks!

  • Angela

    That….that LIP PENCIL. Holy hell. I might need that in my life. Especially if it’s a long lasting one. When it’s a dark colour I ain’t got time for babysitting it all damn day. Perhaps that’s why I travel with 10 lipsticks at any given time. I might have to give the Clinique stick a try. I’ve been having a heckuva time trying to find something to even out my skin without looking like I have a pound of makeup on. I don’t know what my problem is. And it’s awful to say this I know, but my skin looks better without makeup on than with, LOL. And yet I keep trying….
    Hope you have an AWESOME road trip to Cali!!

    • YES you need one! You don’t have to babysit it all day! I mean, if you eat you’ll have to touch it up, but otherwise it stays put. And hahaha, no I no what you mean-I can’t stand to have a lot of makeup on these days either. I go out without any all the time too. But sometimes I like to wear a little something, and when I do it has to be light.
      Thanks! It’s going to be FUN! I’m excited as heck!

  • Lily

    I’m starting to wonder if Marc Jacobs is holding back on us here! We’re not getting any new things at all, not even the skinny pencils, and not even this blush. WTF! Oh, the Bobbi Brown corrector is amazing. I only use 1 dot for each eye because like you said, the wand picks up a lot of product. I tap it with my fingers and voila, faked great sleep.
    I just repurchased the Akin cream cleanser and Antipodes Manuka Honey Mask because they’re good and reasonably priced. I’m half way through the C25 and will be repurchasing that too! It’s really awesome 🙂

    • If you really want something Lily, let me know! I’d be more than happy to be your mule LOL!
      Yeah, I got the BB corrector because of you! GOOD STUFF. I need to get that Honey Mask! Thanks for reminding me, it’s really good stuff!


  • rachlovespenguins

    Um yeah…that blush pan is MASSIVE. But it’s pretty! And everyone needs some pretty now and again. And again. And again. And again. 😉
    I bought the new Chanel blush from the rouge no.1 whatever it’s called collection. Not much else has been calling at me lately and truthfully I’ve been enjoying using up older products, so I figured if it was pretty enough to distract me from my mission for a week straight that it was a safe bet as far as actually using my purchases goes.

    For repurchases, I’m running low on my cleansing oil so I guess this will be my third, yes THIRD, bottle of the Tatcha stuff. And that’s not even considering all the travel size and sample packets that I’ve gone through. I do try other things, but those always wind up as brush or blender cleaners because they don’t suit. Right now I’m cleaning the blender with Bobbi Brown cleansing oil! For the record, it was nice and it smells good, but it clouded my eyes way more than I’d like. My blender sponge is gonna feel all dejected when this deluxe sample is out and it’s back to boring Dr Bronners soap, hahaha.

    And I’ve never been to Salt Lake City. I’d go there though. Not sure what I’d do when I got there, but I’d go! Let us know what you find.

  • Radiant as usual Tracy! I came really close to buying the tatcha mist in NY but the price put me off at the time. There’s always the next trip! The Bobbi Brown corrector sounds perfect, easier to use than those pots.

  • k r i s t e n //

    I’ve got to try that Tatcha spray!! Everyone seems to love it and my glory, the packaging is so beautiful. I love lavender! Marky is super lucky to have a mom who spoils her with goodies like this! Much love, boo!

  • Maggie

    I have a mini size of that Tatcha spray and I keep waffling on whether to open it and try it or just pass it on. I love me some spray toners and finishing sprays, but I always think this one will probably be too greasy for me?
