Eyeshadow Declutter

For how much I love and prefer coloured pencil eyeliners over eyeshadows I can't believe how difficult this was for me. It's ridiculous.

After going through my collection, I could only manage to part with the following...


I can't remember if I've used those DIY palettes since making them but after the depotting stress I went through, those ain't going anywhere. Apart from those I still have three large palettes, two small ones and bariffle of pigments. How sway?

Hopefully I can tackle this again at the end of the year and actually make some progress 😔

Have you decluttered anything recently? Let us know in the comments.

Samples Made Me Buy It

Check out part two here.

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

I'm a fan. The biggest size is 3.4 oz. for $26USD. Compare that to the GlamGlow SuperMud at 1.7 oz for $69USD.


Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser
I told y'all I was buying this

Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser
If you follow me on Instagram you know I rave about this already. I'm excited to finally have the full size. Jen is the first person I heard talk about this but the lovely staff at Pure Source Barbados speak highly about it too. 

Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara

Funny thing is, I think I got the wrong one.


L'Occitane Almond Smoothing and Beautifying Supple Skin Oil

It smells amazing and this spray dispenser is what the NARS one is missing.


Let's show this series to all sales associates that are stingy with samples.

Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 3% Facial Wash

This is the first of those pending cleanser reviews that I told you about here. Initially, this would have gone into 'product rave' territory but after a bit more research it's only poka-poka.


From their website: "This all-purpose, oil-free, anti-aging, exfoliating cleanser contains a gentle form of Glycolic Acid to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Helps clarify the skin's appearance and smooth out the look of a rough texture.

Participants in a four-week consumer efficacy study reported*:

*A total of 25 female subjects, ranging in age from 35 to 65.

$200 USD Skincare Haul | Sephora VIB Sale

The dust has settled. The craze has subsided. Sephora managed to get the orders out...although some came with different samples and some with no samples at all. 100 point perks got cancelled...never mind you placed your order at 3 am on the first day. Etc. etc. Laparkan has sent two of my three packages so here we are #judgenot 😉

From my Wish List post you could see that focus was on skincare. That part of the plan was adhered to though the outcome looks a lil different.


Somewhere in my early morning shopping mind I decided it was a good idea to get a bunch of masks to try. Look out for 'Mask Monday' posts shortly.


I really really tried to not purchase any lip products...but if you follow me on Periscope you'll see soon that that didn't work out. But lip scrubs count as skincare too right?


As I bitterly alluded to earlier, I didn't get the samples I chose or a 100 point perk that I was looking forward to but I am impressed with the size of the Supergoop sunscreen.…
