Pun De Cutting Board

Right away let's get to the update. From March's selection of products I only used one thing ๐Ÿ˜ข As I said here, I haven't been feeling the best so I have not been keeping up with things. Wanna guess what I used?
Illamasqua Beyond Powder 'OMG'
The formula of these 'Beyond Powders' is different from what's popular in the highlighter world now. This baked product imparts a customizable glow so it's a great addition if all you're wearing is a powder foundation. Suffice to say, I'm keeping it.
I've decided to keep the other four products pun de cutting board and here's what I've added for the second installment:
Maybelline SuperStay Foundation '356 Warm Coconut'Clarins Beauty Flash BalmPrimRose Beaute Luxe Setting Powder 'Slayahh'Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow 'Wanderlust'NYX Cosmetics Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette The Stila liquid eyeshadows have taken the beauty industry by storm and I'm…

At this point I always get a lipstick too right? ๐Ÿ˜ The lipglasses and eyeshadows looked great but I doubt I would have used them. You have to swatch those eyeshadows in person; M.A.C has really upped their quality.
Matte Lipstick 'Beach Nut'
I was surprised that there were no blushes - or highlighters co…

Well uuuhhhh this is awkward ๐Ÿ˜” Actually, what had happened was...between migraines and a wisdom tooth extraction I din much use tuh muh self for a while. My humblest apologies. I hope you've still been rocking with #TeamModen on Facebook and Instagram.

Now let's clear away some cobweb and talk favourites.

Bath and Body Works Tiare Monoi Body Oil

Our illuminating Tiare Monoi Body Oil leaves skin feeling soft and beautiful with a long-lasting, subtle sheen."

NARS Lip Gloss 'Stolen Kisses'
"Sparkling Caramel Pink." My wife sent this for me and I am most grateful. I must have never tried a NARS gloss before because this formula was a new experience for me. The formula isn't sticky but it still lasts. &…
