Top Five Makeup Products I Should Stop Purchasing

We all know that they're certain things we should stop buying. Personally, the hunt for the best thing used to have me prisoner. I'm working on that though . Presently these are the categories where I can admit that I really really shouldn't buy not anudda one... Mascara This is ridiculous...and I still want a full size of the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir, Guerlain Maxi Lash and Chantecaille Longest Lash. Ok, those three and then I'm done. Liquid Foundation Wid mascara I could almost give myself a bligh.. I enjoy putting it on; like I legit take my time with that ish. I rarely wear false lashes (largely due to the fact that I can't apply them) and I don't have extensions. Liquid foundation now is whole anudda case. I'd rather spot conceal and follow up with a powder. I barely leave the house and when I do, I want the fastest base makeup possible. Lastly, due to my extensive skincare collection I don't need a full coverage foundation. Given al

Sephora Spring VIB Sale 2018 Haul

I dunno why this took me so long to post. I had dese tings since last month 😔Follow me on Periscope if you wanna be kept up to date. First check out my Wish List post and then let's see what I actually got. This waterproof eyeliner was a total last minute throw-in. It came highly recommended from Eshani .

Jen convinced me to try that 'Unicorn Tears' lipstick. I really do like Too Faced's La Creme formula . Y'all saw me freak out about this mask ; I had to get another one to make sure it wasn't a fluke. I think that's it. I

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Face Cleanser - Foaming Formula

As I said here , as long as you don't have sensitive skin, cleanser is one part of your skincare routine where you can save some coins. So I tried a new(ish) inexpensive cleanser. I got the foaming version but there's a Creamy Formula that Caroline Hirons said was comparable the popular one from Cetaphil. In Massy Stores, at the time of purchase, this was approximately $28 BDS . I say approximately cause the price tag under this product may not have correlated to it. While that price isn't the cheapest it's a great value for 12 fl. oz. This will last you quite a while. From their website : " Benefits Now you can get the best of gentle AND the best of clean – without any compromise. With patented technology, our effective yet gentle hypoallergenic cleanser removes excess oil, dirt and even makeup without disturbing skin's natural moisture barrier to leave it feeling soft—never too dry, never too tight.

Beauty Oil Woes

Now I want to get into a few oils that I would almost call treatments.
