I must be in denial. I haven't found a job since graduating University a couple months ago but still whip out my bank card at the slightest tug of my skincare-loving heartstrings. Perhaps I buy beautiful products to stave off my jobless woes? Regardless of the reason, the first step to recovery is admittance of a problem, and conveniently I'm due for a beauty haul post!
You usually can find me toting a compact for touch-ups and this chic Diorskin Forever Compact Flawless Perfection Fusion Wear Makeup SPF 25 (what a mouthful!) thrills me. Its slim construction slides into both my briefcase and clutch equally well and the small sponge inside is adequate for blending on the go. I chose the shade Cameo 022 for my fair, cool-toned skin and found this match does indeed melt into my skin as its description proclaims.
Recently I’ve likened the brightness of my skin to a light blub about to go out, so I’ve turned to Origins Make a Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment to increase the wattage. I’m sensitive to many skincare standouts and allocated the next two weeks to discern whether "rejuvenation" is synonymous to breakouts and reactive redness in my personal skin dictionary.
While we're on the subject of breakouts, post-blemish hyperpigmentation has banished certain areas of my skin to perpetual daytime concealment. I've selected StriVectin Get Even Spot Repair to battle the tyrannical spots and you can expect a glamorous bare-skinned "before and after" review in the future.
I'm mildly obsessed with everything Tarte and their Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in "Exposed" has been sitting pretty on my vanity for a few months. With this addition of "Dollface" I can finally call my stash a collection and not a singularity! My purchase of REN Keep Young and Beautiful Anti-Aging Eye Cream stemmed from simple necessity (empties post coming soon) and the Ultra Moisture Day Cream and T-Zone Balancing Day Fluid were samples generously bestowed upon me in accordance with REN's online consumer policy.
Have you tried any of these products? Alternatively, does anyone have any tips for executing a successful spending ban? I'm thinking that may be a good idea...
