This Week’s Simple Face

I have really been loving looking into what makeup people wear on a regular basis. I think it really helps you figure out what they’re actually using. Here is my face this week…

Lancome La Base Primer
Jouer Matte Moisture Tint in Linen applied with Real Techniques Stippling Brush
Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Cream in Rose Gold on cheekbones and eyes
NARS Outlaw blush
Great Lash Clear on brows
Dior Lash Plumping Serum
Maybelline Full’ n Soft Mascara

Please tell me if you actually enjoy these posts. What have you been wearing recently?

Bits and Bobs Haul

I hope that you all had a relaxing weekend. Thankfully, the weather has gotten colder outside and (for some reason) I like to buy more things….forget that, I just like to buy things all the time.

Here are some things I have gotten recently (over about a month). I will do a review of some of the products, but if you would like to see a review of something in particular  just leave comment.

Kiehl’s Fig Leaf and Sage Body Wash and Lotion
Just a few samples some very nice lady gave me and my accompanier as we *tried* to act totally professional.

Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm
Review done here.

NARS blush in Outlaw
This was a total impulse buy, for I have been wanting Doucer foreva, but I had a 20% off coupon at Sephora and they didn’t have Doucer! My friend was also getting a NARS blush and she just made me want to get something with the packaging. This was part of the Autumn/Winter collection, so I figured the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Review coming soon!

Dior Best in Show Lash Amplifying Duo
I have been really wanting to try the Lash Plumping Serum, and I figured this could be the best way to try it while also getting a new mascara as well.

The Body Shop Morrocan Rose Body Mist
This was featured in my Rose Obsession post (which is linked here). If you like roses, you got to get this!

Philosophy’s Hot Buttered Rum Body Gel
I have run out of all of shower gel, and this just smelled so good! I have really been loving Philosophy products lately.

Yes to Carrots Nourishing Night Cream
I have been using this on my cheeks at night (as the name suggests), and I quite like it. Especially, since the weather is getting colder. If you have dry skin, you will really like this.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey
This was in my October favorites, but ever since then, I just haven’t been wearing it that much. We’ll see…

ANOTHER Beauty Wishlist

Let’s be honest…did you really expect me to go a month without a wishlist post? Yup, that’s what I thought. Half the fun in buying new beauty products is looking at them all, eh?

November Wishlist


1 / Dior Lash Plumping Serum and DiorShow minis After seeing EssieButton talk about the lash plumping serum nonstop, what can I say, I just have to try it! Pluuusss – I need a new mascara. What could be more perfect?

2 / Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè In the “beauty blogger world”, it seems like everyone and the cat’s best friend (that’s not the saying at all), talks about this. This hydrating creme is good for all skin types, works as a moisturizer, primer, and makeup remover, and (well…let me not go into how it originates in France).

3 / Dior Addict Lipstick For some reason, I really really want a lipstick…but this one doesn’t look like one! Could the packaging be any prettier (if you haven’t realized, I’m a sucker for packaging), and it’s Dior. The only thing – I can’t decide which color I want…

4 / Korres Guava Shower Gel As I’m forcing myself to get through all my old bath & body products, I need some incentive, eh? I smelled this while I was in Sephora last week and it smells delicious. Either this or the rose one – again, I just can’t decide.

5 / Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush This is three Dior products in one wishlist, people! Obviously this isn’t very realistic, but a girl can dream… This blush adjusts to your own skin tone and (again) look at that packaging.

6 / REN Tonic Moisture Mist I have really been into skincare stuff recently, and coinciding with my recent Hyaluronic Acid post, this seems like the perfect solution for my thirst-quenching skin.
