Hi everyone! In this entry I'm going to be talking about some items I purchased today (mainly cosmetics).
First off, I received this item I ordered online in the mail today! It's a body adhesive for clothes, hosiery, theatrical make up, etc. I use it to hold up stubborn straps on clothes, strapless clothing items, strapless bras, etc! It's totally awesome and I think every girl should have one of these babys.
This is where I bought mine: http://www.ameswalker.com/itstayad.html
I first tried it out through one of my friends, Lani and obviously you can tell that I was sold! It washes off easily with water. No harm done to the skin or to clothes! Viola!
Next, Bliss' Fatgirl sleep (fatgirl slim products). I've done a review of all the fatgirl slim products (love handler, fatgirl slim & sleep) on livejournal, so I won't really go into detail here (feel free to let me know if you want me to explain more though). But all I can say is, this is my 3rd time buying this product. To me it works. I was afraid it was a gimmick when I first tried it out. I knew it was working because no one knew that I was using it, I'd get loads of good comments from friends, co workers and family that I look slimmer and often asked what I was doing. :P Well here ya go everyone! :D The small bottle is a facial cleanser from Philosophy called Purity. I like it, smells lemony and my face feels pretty nice and clean afterwards. This came free with my Sephora points.
MAKEUP! haha. I've been going on makeup missions lately with my friend, Lani. To me, I feel she always has the best advice for make up! She does her research ;).
At the very top we have Maybelline's Superstay makeup 24hr foundation (in pure beige). I've tried many foundations (drugstore brands to high end brands). So far I'm really liking this foundation. I don't know if it's the BEST one I've tried so far, but I do like it! It does stay on, my face doesn't get as oily or shiny, and the coverage is about medium. I say it's worth it.
Next is Rimmel's Sexy Curves Mascara (color black, waterproof). I've tried MANY MANY MANY mascaras and I always find myself crawling back to Covergirl's LashBlast. LashBlast has so far been my number one mascara (lengthens very very well. Keeps my eyelashes curled. Often get mistaken for wearing falsies). Before buying Sexy Curves, I wanted to buy the japanese mascara, Fairy Drops. It's very expensive here, so I did some research online and found out that Sexy Curves is the alternative for FD. I've also read it's one of the better mascara's out there. So, I bought it. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. It does lengthen. Eyelashes don't stay curled, and a few hours into the day, and the mascara smudges. I'll definitely be going back to LashBlast.
Lastly, Maybelline's Colorsensational lipstick (in Pink Sand. Mind you, the color is a lighter pink, this pic color is inaccurate). I'm not too fond of lipsticks. They tend to make my lips flake or they run. BUT THIS IS AWESOME. Another great recommendation from Lani. It almost doesn't even feel like lipstick. It's quite moisturizing too. She's done her research and she says there's Vitamin E in it so that's a plus! I'm going to be buying the other colors :) Red will be next!
Aside from makeup, I bought this knit vest (in grey) today! I've been on the hunt to find a cute knit vest, and I think I've found it.
That's all for today!
