Can you believe it's almost the end of November? We went to the annual movie with santa that our local shopping centre holds each year on the weekend (we saw a preview of trolls, the kids loved it), which marks the start of our christmas season. But where has the year gone?
But, i digress. Lhi rocked up today, it was sent monday, so made fairly decent time getting here. Let's have a looksee, shall we?
This is a teeny tiny jar, but it is cheaper than what lhi have it down as. The same size costs £24, which roughly converts to $40. This claims to be like thin lizzy, a colour corrector, bronzer, concealer etc, etc. Mine's in natural light, which is quite dark (you'll see in the swatch). It should make a nice bronzer, if nothing else. But it's a tiny container, getting a brush in is going to be a PITA. And for some reason when i ran my finger around the top of the lid so i could swatch, my finger came back black. The packaging feels fairly cheap and nasty, and the colour transferring confirms that.
Cougar Mineral Face and Body Shimmer-$30.50-full size
This is in Golden Bliss, an old gold looking shimmer. It's actually really pretty, and i think with a light hand could look really natural. Packaging still feels cheap, but at least it's big enough to use effectively.
My mystery product. I love aveda products, and haven't tried this, so I'm happy to give it a go.
Rituals... The Ritual Of Sakura Shower Foam-$5-sample size
This smells heavenly! It's organic rice milk and cherry blossom, to soften and purify skin.
Foreo Night Cleanser-sample size
This is marked on the card as a day cleanser, and there's a comp going that says for the day cleanser, so i have nfi. So what can i tell you about this? It smells pretty neutral, it took my swatches off easily, and it has exfoliating particles in it. Which make no sense to me, if you're using a foreo then why do you need an exfoliant?
Hopefully next month is better.
