This year has been all about using what I have and staying away from temptation in these categories:
My will is weak and here is a what I bought. I actually ran out of a few things, but hey I’m a sucker for a new little pick me up to temporary spicy up my routine.
As you can see I didn’t do that much damage to my wallet and I did pick up a few new things. Here is what I think about them so far.
First off this Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose Kiss. EVERYONE has been raving about this product. I decided to try it out. First off this is a very thin lip butter. By thin I mean it won’t feel thick, EVER no matter how much you put on. It is relatively hydrating I would give it a 6 out 10, this is not my favorite lip balm. I do love that I can layer it under a lipstick without it feeling too thick or to goopy. Overall I would say skip it buy Burts Bees or an actual hydrating lip balm in a tube.
Second thing I got is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal pencil in Nude. I have heard that this can be compared to Tarte’s emphasEyes Inner Rim brightened in Nude. I absolutely love it. It is the perfect shade to put into your waterline and “wake you up”. You can’t beat the price for this lovely pencil. Once I saw it in stock I had to grab it, those are rare gems in my drugstore.
The third thing I picked up is the Eucerin Professional Repair Extremely Dry Skin Lotion. I ran out of my Eucerin Skin Calming Daily Moisturizing Creme and I though I would try something new. So far this has a bit more of a gel like consistency. It seems to be doing the job but I am still testing it out.
I know a pretty boring haul. Next time I will try to spice up what I buy … or maybe not we shall see.
Have you purchased anything new recently?
