Even though I have oily skin, I like that micellars don't strip. It took me a long time to learn how bad that was for my skin. I also like how soft and clean my skin feels afterwards. If I'm lazy,I slap on Cerave PM after that and call it a night.

 My last makeup purchase was a mascara called Skinny Microcara(it's a Korean brand but I don't remember the name offhand). I always seem to get mascara all over my eyes no matter how careful I am so I thought I'd try this. I just got it so I'll post results when I try it.

NYX Pro Lip Cream palette in Red. I recently rediscovered red lips and, to my surprise, found that a red-orange really suits me. (I used to gravitate to wines and plums, but this red orange makes me feel fabulous.)

I purchased this one two weeks ago(?) and it broke two days ago. The color is purchased is Tea Rose. I don't have the receipt anymore or I would have returned it.  The product is too soft and long so I think that's why it broke. I can still use it.

It looks mauvy(sp?) on my lips.  It feels dry but if you put on chapstick first or after, it seems to be fine and last longer that I expected.

My local drugstore had a sale on Revlon lipsticks, so I treated myself to some new shades and a couple of favorites.

Bought a lip liner:

This is the first time I buy this brand; it has recently become available in the UK . The lip liner is pretty good.

I bought 2 Essence lipsticks for about 3 euro each and love them! Also NYC bb cream/bronzer (a bb cream with a bronze tone) for less than $5, oh, and the Sleek Cleopatra's Kiss highlighter palette on sale for $7 or so (in euro).  It's shades of gold which work for me; a bit of an impulse which I don't regret.

The Essence lipsticks are fabulous, and sheer enough that you can apply them without a mirror and not worry.  Very moisturizing but not too slippery.

I'm so sick of beauty blogs, non-stop ads, images in the media of women heavily made-up, articles encouraging us to buy more make-up, and the way my local drugstore has turned into a makeup emporium that I'm wearing less of the stuff.  I'm not against doing what one wants to make oneself prettier or whatever, but the exterior pressure to follow the 'influencers' is so irritating. 

If anyone's interested, I totally recommend the youtube vlogs of Kimberly Clark, who does anti-hauls (What I Am Not Going to Buy).  She questions all of our beauty needs and the shopping pressure.

My last purchase was a peach lip colour from The Body Shop - #110. This colour brightens my face instantly, nice texture and it's moisturising too. I love it!

About a month and a half ago I bought a Revlon matte lip crayon in the shade Fierce - it's a beautiful rich brick red that's really flattering. Not drying at all either. Loving bolder lip shades including straight-up unusual ones(looking at the Maybelline Loaded Bolds collection which has a bunch of winning shades). I'll pretty much have to wait until AFTER Christmas before buying anything else though. Even if it's just ONE lipstick.

I have not bought anything from the Body Shop for a few years, but I remember that their lipsticks were good quality and very moisturising. I am not buying anything until after Christmas. I had to go to a department store today to buy some sewing stuff and the pace was packed, so no shopping except for food and essentials. They cannot tempt me with their 'special offers' and 'in-store events' :)

Hi!  This is my first post.  My last purchase was Mary Kay eyeliner in black.  I am liking that it glides on my aging eyes and does not come off until I take it off.  However it is tough to get off!  Looking into a new eye makeup remover.
