I’m really back-logged with my posts as you can see, as this was meant to be posted before I left for vacation, but I didn’t have time to take photos. Ah well, better late than never!
So I wasn’t really planning on doing much makeup shopping before my trip but I’ve been finding some incredible stuff at Winners! I just couldn’t NOT buy this stuff:
Burberry! Armani! Nars! Paul & Joe! nail polishes from the newest collections! I couldn’t even fit everything into the frame. I’ll start off with the craziest (aka the best!) things:
Armani Master Corrector in #2 Orange – $19.99
This has been on my wish list for ages, and I found it at Winners, of all places! and at such a good price (it retails for $42 on Sephora)! I also saw the #01 pink colour there too but I’d read the orange was the way to go. So excited to try this! (and Winners, good for you for locking up the pricier makeup!)
Burberry sheer foundation luminous Compact foundation in Trench #03- $29.99
This was a case of being at the right place at the right time. I was killing time after work one night and stopped into the Winners near work. There was an associate unpacking a bunch of new items and she was putting a few Burberry makeup items out – liquid foundation and pressed powders. They were all in those little locked cases and there were 2 shades of powders so I took them both up to the cashier to have them open them up for me to see the colours. One of the powders was completely shattered and it was also too dark for me. but this one was perfect and matched me. Pontuação!
Paul & Joe Eye color CS in 097 Café Macchiato – $14.99
This sweet little eye shadow single was part of their fall 2015 collection. how cute is the owl packaging?
Paul & Joe Moisturizing foundation primer N – $19.99
My pal had actually told me about buying this primer at Winners and said she didn’t like it. but I was still curious about it so I got it to try.
Nars nail polish in Disco Inferno and other Side (from 3.1 Phillip Lim collab) – $8.99 each
Disco Inferno is such a neat duochrome shade that I seem to gravitate to. and other Side is nice vampy shade but not terribly unique, I might give this to a pal who likes Phillip Lim.
Mediheal Platinum V-Life vital Mask – 10 for $12.99
These look really good (contains glycerin, hyaluronic acid and witch hazel) and I was surprised to find it was less than $15 for the box of 10, most of the boxes I’ve seen are $30.
More nail polishes: I was so psyched to see the new China Glaze 2016 spring and summer collections at Winners! I bought a few… go head and judge me.
China Glaze spring 2016 house of color collection – $5.99 each
• Pink or Swim
• Don’t Be Shallow
• Chrome Is Where The Heart Is
• Sorry I’m Latte
China Glaze Lite Brites collection – $5.99 each
• Let’s Jam
• I got a Blue Attitude
• ondas de calor
• Nicole by OPI The new Neutral – $5.99
• Orly Honeymoon in style – $5.99
• Orly catch the Bouquet – $5.99
• Zoya Pandora – $4.99
• Jessica Tres elegant – $4.99
BH Cosmetics Smokey Eyes – 28 color Eyeshadow palette – $12.99
Finally, I found one of these palettes that haven’t been opened and played with. There were 3 colour options available: Neutral Eyes, vital Eyes, and Smokey Eyes. I was tempted by the first two but I went with this one that had a little bit of colour. This is officially the largest eye shadow palette I own, and my first ever of these 28 pans that are popular from the likes of BH Cosmetics, Coastal Scents, Sedona Lace, and Morphe.
Paula Dorf 5 Eyeshadow Collection (contains L to R: Grace, Mauve, Gunmetal, Riot, and Forest) – $6.99
I’ve been seeing lots of “brand name” makeup at Winners lately by Ellen Tracy, Max studio and Paula Dorf. most of them are made in China so I’ve been hesitant to try them. These look decent and reminiscent of the Eye Glimmers, however, I found this article that states Paula Dorf herself is slamming these makeup products as devaluing her name. I guess that’s what happens when your company goes bankrupt and sells the brand rights to someone else.
Cala make-up Blending Sponge
This looks really similar to my favourite Quo sponge so I’m giving it a test.
Suisse Clinians intense A lifting Anti-aging Toner
Random toner with good ingredients (with retinol and hyaluronic acid) and made in Italy.
And I’ve been on a perfume buying rampage! I picked these up on separate visits… I really like philosophy fragrances and couldn’t resist:
• love sweet love – fruity grapefruit & mango
• inner Grace – I couldn’t find specific notes on this and it’s discontinued, but it features Egyptian Musk, and is typically compared to Narcisso Rodriguez for Her and Sarah Jessica Parker’s lovely – but a bit more toned down.
• Loveswept – passionfruit & jasmine
I’ve tried all three on my skin now and my favourite so far is love sweet love – a grapefruity scent that’s perfect for summer!
And now I’m banning myself from shopping at Winners for a littleEnquanto (e eu tenho sucesso em junho até agora – sem maquiagem compras lá este mês!) Eles sempre me pegam com a ideia de que, se você encontrar algo, compre agora! E eu sempre sinto que estou perdendo se não parar em pelo menos uma vez por semana, já que eles recebem novas remessas o tempo todo. Eu vou desafiar a mim mesmo apenas ir uma vez a cada outra semana.

Favoritos ultimamente: início de 2016i’m Baaaack. 🙂 Obrigado por todos os desejos da semana passada! Tenho cerca de 50% melhor simplesmente porque é inevitável para mim não estar no computador no trabalho. Estou olhando para uma avaliação ergonômica para minha mesa, e possivelmente fazendo algum fisioterfo. Eu vou ser escalando de volta na minha postagem …

Meu mês de dezembro de 2016 em dezembro de dezembro! Agora que acabei de ser feito Pan, tenho que ser honesto com você – Eu estive me sentindo um pouco estressado e muito culpado pela pilha de maquiagem que estava esperando para ser fotografada, testada e revisada. Desde que as comportas abriram este ano para a compra de maquiagem, eu tenho …

Lemmings # 1sta é a primeira vez que estou postando um tipo de lista de desejo de entrada, mas eu escolhi para titular “lemmings” em vez disso. A razão para isso é porque a maioria, se não todas, dos meus itens de lista de desejos foram trazidos à minha atenção devido a posts de outras pessoas sobre eles. O…
