OH HAUL YES I DID
I headed into the city yesterday with the intention of buying a new night cream. My second bottle of La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra finally ran out and, as much as I loved it, I thought it was due time to try something new. I did indeed find a new moisturizer... I just accidentally found a few others things along the way.
Keil's Ultra Facial Cream
I went back and forth a number of times about what moisturizer to buy next. I couldn't decide if I wanted to go low end or high end, rich or lightweight, gel or cream – basically I was experiencing as much turmoil as one can feel over something as trivial as a moisturizer (dare I say it? First world problems). In the end I settled with the Keil's Ultra Facial Cream as it seemed like a good compromise. At $33/50ml it's not too outrageous. It sinks in quite well for a hydrating cream, which is nice for my oily skin. I think I could just about get away with wearing this as a day cream in the colder months. It also doesn't contain any added fragrance. I always appreciate that in skincare.
MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash
I popped into MAC to pick up a few items for friends (they also enjoy the PRO discount that I get, naughty) and a mascara for myself. I always have trouble with mascara smudging under my eyes, and I've heard a number of people say that the Extended Play Mascara is both smudge-proof and washes off with warm water. It sounded like it ticks all the boxes so I went for it.
Thhheeennn an accident happened. I've been eyeing up MAC Mehr for a while now. It looks like the perfect 90's matte lip for pale girls – not too dark, not too brown, not too pink. So yeah, I caved. It didn't help that the beautiful, sassy, Scottish sales assistant encouraged me to buy it. She was amazing. We're soul mates I'm sure. She just doesn't know it yet.
Physician's Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder
I spotted a good sale on Physician's Formula products while doing my grocery shopping at Real Canadian Superstore. Thanks Superstore. You never let me down. I don't often see Physician's Formula on offer so it seemed like a good opportunity to finally pick up the Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder, which is basically a subtle, glowy bronzer. I've seen Fleur wearing it a number of times on her channel and it always looks amazing on her. To be fair, that's probably just her natural skin that looks amazing, but in the quest to look as glowing and angelic as Fleur I picked up the powder.
Maybelline Fit Me Powder
I mentioned in my Drugstore Makeup Starter Kit post that I'd never found a powder from the drugstore that I was particularly enamored with. The Maybelline Fit Me Powder was also on sale and it looked interesting to me. It feels fairly soft and lightweight from what I can tell from swatching it on my hand and I thought it might be nice to have a powder with a little bit of pigment in it for a change. I just hope that it doesn't have a chalky finish. I'm unsure about it one, but as always, I'll keep you posted.
