There have been quite a few makeup products I’ve been loving lately. One is a foundation I started using earlier in the year, and the rest I only started using in the last month or so. Read on for mini reviews & swatches!
Thought I would update you on the blog hiccups I told you about in my last post!
Don't worry, it's the same Gummy Vision content (well ok, perhaps I'm going to try a few new things like the bag review in my post earlier today ha ha!)...just a different name. The layout is the same. Visually I just changed the logo, some fonts, colors and my profile pic.
I've wanted to change things up for a long time...years, really.
Earlier this year when I went all crazy-eyed for bags, I purchased the Gucci Soho Disco. Part of my final decision to buy the bag was because The Purse Forum thread for this particular bag was talking about new colors that were being released. Within that discussion it was revealed that with the new colors also came an update to the bag - no tassel on the zipper. No one seemed to know for sure if this was a complete redesign of the bag and all bags produced in the future would have no tassel, so some of us (including me of course lol) became a little frantic trying to purchase it before the 'old' models were all gone. I love the tassel and think it lends a lot of character to an otherwise very simple bag.
Time for some personal lady talk!! If you get embarrassed with TMI regarding that time of the month, click away! But for everyone else, here we go...
I read Laurie's, Eye Heart It, review about the Thinx Period Panties & Underwear (HERE) and was completely intrigued. I read through all of the comments and her responses a couple of times before finally placing an order. I've had these for over a year, so I definitely have formed some opinions ha ha!
I finished more makeup this month!!! Yay yay!!
I snapped some swatches when I was in Sephora earlier this month, and thought I would share them in the Recap as well!
I've tried a few hand creams with sunscreen, but to date I haven't cared enough for any of them to repurchase or to buy the full size. Until now that is!!!
I mentioned in the beginning of the year that I was much more into complexion products. That hasn't changed, and it's actually morphed into a greater interest in skincare rather than makeup. In a way I feel as though I'm going back to my roots, as skincare has always been my first love.
So that's my first admission, of sorts!
As mentioned, HERE, one of my friends brought back some Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets from Europe for me. I couldn't decide on just a few colors, so I asked for quite a lot since they were a lot less than I normally pay for lipsticks. I've had awhile to play with them, and here are my thoughts!
I went through my 2nd BBL (Broadband Light) laser treatment a couple of weeks ago, and just had my second microdermabrasion yesterday. My final BBL laser treatment is in a week, and my final microdermabrasion 2 weeks after that. Well, hopefully anyway! Depends on how good the 3rd treatment goes!
Prior to the treatments, I read that you have to be really gentle with your skin - no rubbing, tugging or trying to peel the healing spots off or things could look worse. Also you aren't allowed to use certain acids - mainly from what I gather you can't use acids that aid in exfoliation. I still didn't know quite what to expect or how my skin would react.
I use face mists pretty much everyday when I'm working. I love the extra boost of hydration in the dry plane air, and they help bring back the glow when I've powdered throughout the day. I've got 3 going at the moment: the Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist, Medicell Hydrating Calming Facial Mist and Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist.
