Uh Barrifle Ah Empties

When the garbage pile is getting ridiculous yuh know umis time fuh one o dese.

Standard repurchases.

The top four are repurchases also. 'Frosted Cranberry' and 'Tis The Season' smell amazing. I was kindda disappointed with 'Sparkling Pear Riesling' or I should say it was hyped up and I don't get it 😐 Everything else I would try again.

All mentioned before:

Clarins Toning Lotion With Iris
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 1970
Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum
Berkley & Jensen 100% Pure Cotton Rounds
Therapi 'Orange Blossom' Honey Gel Cleanser
Son & Park Beauty Water
The Original Konjac Puff Sponge 'Bamboo Charcoal' and 'French Green Clay'

I didn't like the scent of the Shea Moisture Hair & Scalp Serum so I wouldn't repurchase. Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Spray is a #fav. I get it when it's on Hautelook1for the low low. Healthy Kinks is #TeamModenA…

Sampled Out

While my 2019 Low Buy is off to a rocky start my goal to use up samples is going strong 💪

NARS Skin Luminous Moisture Cream 2 ml

I wouldn't spend $64USD (1.7 oz / 50 ml) on it but it was moisturizing. A little went a long way so this foil packet actually lasted for more than two uses.

Neom Perfect Night's Sleep Pillow Mist 'Scent to Sleep / Tranquility' 5 ml

Neom claims this is the 'Tranquility' scent but it doesn't smell like the original. That said, I was very happy to receive this in a Christmas set from Victoria. The Neom Organics line is available locally from Pure Source. 30 ml retails for $32USD.

Laneige Essential Power Skin Toner for Combination to Oily Skin 50 ml

I purchased the Laneige Pore Care Trial Kit whilst in Orlando because I needed a toner. The Laneige line is an affordable K Beauty brand available form Sephora. 200 ml retails for $28USD; I would repurchase.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster 9.76 ml

Y'all know I'm a fan of thi…

Beautylish Lucky Bag 2019

Another year, another Beautylish Lucky Bag. Yet again this is the $75USD (plus shipping) medium/deep bag.

I completely forgot to check the site at the launch time so I missed out on the XL bag. If I can't get one of those next year (well, December 26) I might not bother. That said, I got less repeat products than I did last time.
Good Molecules Super Peptide Serum - $12USD By Terry Rouge-Expert Click Stick '25. Dark Purple' - $32USD Wayne Goss The Brow Set - $55USD Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette 'The Dolce Vita' - $53USD Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Sheet Mask - $6USD Surratt Beauty Artistique Blush ' Rougeur' - $32USD
Total - $190USD
While my value was a little less than last year's andyear before, I only got one repeat product. A little while ago Surratt Beauty was on 50% sale from Sephora so I got two blushes and a highlighter.

I do have another Rouge-Expert Click Stick but thankfully in a different shade. To see my initial reaction whil…

2018 Top Five | Prettiest Purchases

I'd like to think I bought less makeup last year since less releases interested me. Of course I still fell into some traps...

NARS Spiked Audacious Lipstick 'Siouxsie'

An edgy twist to a formula I already love? Sold.

Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette '001 Universal'
I swatched this back in September and managed to walk away but it just wouldn't let me be.

Sonia G Brushes

If you don't know who Sonia is check out her blog. She's taken her passion for makeup brushes and poured it into her own line. Such an inspiration!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit - Unlocked

I'm still waiting for Hourglass to release a Holiday palette that's completely black people friendly but swatching this in person made me curious enough to try it.

M.A.C Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed'

Read my thoughts on the whole Holiday 2018 collection here.

Honourable mention:

Viseart Grand Pro Volume 2

Fuh somebody dat ain't an eyeshadow person I sure buy some expensive pa…

Happy New Year!

After seeing fireworks at Disney, I was wondering who else spends that kinda money on a light show.

On to the update...

From the first post, I actually back-to-M.A.Ced that PaintPot. I'm not a fan of how dry the matte ones make my eyelids look. I used everything in June's edition which is a great improvement 😎. '356 Warm Coconut' might be too warm for me but I'll give it another shot. 'Slayahh' I'm going to pass on to Heidi since it was too light for my complexion. She mixes hers with her face powder to make the perfect under eye highlight. The Strobe of Genius palette get through by being an excellent travel palette. I'm happy I didn't buy a full size of the Beauty Flash Balm; it's an ok primer but I have too many. 'Wanderlust' is a gorgeous inner corner highlight. Be careful with these Stila liquid eyeshadows though; they seem to dry out pretty fast. Too fast for $24USD if yuh ask me.

So what's next?

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...

...this is almost done. I was using this in the shower and yuh know, time just got away.
From the Beautylish site:
