Well. It’s not raining, however South Carolina is still a wet soggy mess. While we have reprieve for now- it’s supposed to be nasty tonight and tomorrow. I’m thinking about making a fish pond out of the largest puddle in the front yard. I don’t know, maybe raise gold fish for a living?
I went to Walgreen’s this morning, in search of the Wet N Wild stick foundation. I found it, but I feel as though I was hoodoo’d. The buy 2 get one free cosmetics, nail polish shampoo- thing isn’t quite what it seems and doesn’t include a few brands such as Wet N Wild. Anyway. I would have purchased these things anyway, eventually. I tend to wait for coupons or sales, because budget...
From Wet N Wild, I finally found the Photofocus Stick foundation. I picked up the shade Soft Ivory. I also picked up the limited edition Rose Toner. This packaging gives me some serious Kat Von Dee vibes. It smells so good. Definitely rosey. I also found the Water Drop Primer, in Rose. I think they had Coconut and another one, I can’t remember what it was. These little guys are supposed to hydrate and blur pores. I used all three of these products on my face today, following my normal skin care. Toner spray first, Water Drop Primer and the foundation. The Rose Toner is just another layer to me. I didn’t see where it made a huge difference in my skin, but it does smell really good. I followed this with the Water Drop Primer, which is really a neat concept. I really does turn into a fluid consistency and it’s cooling, when you work it into your skin. As far as pores, mine are still out to party… meh. I just don’t know about the foundation stick. It went on creamy and blended easily with a sponge, but my skin looks heavy with makeup. I have a feeling it’s not going to be super long lasting, but stick foundations usually aren’t on my skin. Maybe it’s just meh.
I’d been wanting to try the Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Cremes along with the Loreal Infalliable Paints, so I picked up the Lip Crème in Barely Blush and the Lip Paint in Nude Star. I’ve tried both of these and I love them. I’m a sucker for a nude lip anyway and anything that’s not drying is awesomesauce. Oh, about the plumping. Yea. I don’t see it. No shade though, I’m still a fan.
I’m wearing Nude Star today, it’s so creamy and soft .
I also saw a Loreal Voluminous mascara in Cobalt and decided to get it because I love the Burgundy and because I thought I was getting buy 2 get one free. Get your shit together Walgreen’s. Anyway, I love it as well. ( I ordered a cool new pair of Zenni glasses that are blue, I can’t wait to see how they look with blue lashes… more on that later.) I’m wearing it today as well, on my upper and lower lashes, it’s like baby bear’s porridge. It’s not too much and not too little. It’s just blue enough. It’s also one of my favorite mascara formulas.
On my eyes, I’m also wearing The Matte Bar from last week and the Liquid Catsuit in Cashmere Love. Both are pretty stinking awesome.
I went to Walmart to get my oil changed and tires rotated, you know the double tasking stuff that you have to do while you’re supposed to be grocery shopping…and while I was there, I somehow managed to end up in the shoes and I picked up this cute little pair of canvas leopard sneaks. Walmart clothing/shoes is not the clothing/shoes of my youth. Aren’t they cute?
Anyway, that’s my the rain is coming again mini haul.
Have you guys tried any of this stuff? What did you think? What’s your favorite thing to do while it’s raining?
