Weekend Catch-Up #28

weekend post 28

Time to recap the past week. Today I saw that the temperatures are going to go up a bit this week which put me in a really good mood. Spring cannot come soon enough…

Empties. Nada. I am working my way through some body oils (I have quite a few at the moment). I am almost at the end of the Osmia Organics Body Oil in the scent Sunset*, which smells incredible (like anything Osmia).

Repurchased. I finally received a new bottle of my skin-fixing toner, the YULI Cocoon Elixir, because I try to never be without it (you can read my full review here). I also ordered a new pouch of Prtty Peashun, this time in the color Deep Dark, because as soon as the weather changes my legs and arms are definitely going to need help. In case you are not familiar with Prtty Peashun, you can read my review here. It is the best way I have found to cheat “better body skin” and get a subtle glow during the process. (I bought it with a 50% off discount here). If you live in Europe you can find it at Cult Beauty.

Lipstick Love & Lipstick Swatches. Nudus lipstick in 27 Kisses has definitely been my go-to, especially for daytime. I love everything about it: color, texture, staying power. However, this week a lovely reader asked me to swatch the ILIA Beauty Lipstick Crayon in Dress You Up next to Nudus 27 Kisses* to see how the colors compared, and she was right to think that they are very similar. Dress You Up is a bit more mauve and the texture is not as creamy as 27 Kisses. However, they are very similar so if you own Dress You Up you may want to take that into consideration before purchasing 27 Kisses. Honestly,  I prefer 27 Kisses because it has a bit more warmth to it (which I think suits me better) and because the formula is more emollient, but they are almost dupes of each other.

This week. Expect to see my monthly favorites popping up and a review of Ecobrow. I know that quite a few people are waiting on it, so I marked it as “priority”. If you have any request (swatches, posts, reviews) make sure to leave me a comment. Have a great week everyone!

    Ahh how do you find sales like the Prtty Peashun?! Love that product. Have dark in full-size, think I’ll get deep dark too. I need all the help I can get in the “my skin needs a tan” department haha!

  • Nice roundup! Looking forward to the EcoBrow review- have definitely been curious about that! :)

    I think I have a new favorite in the winter for face mist and that is Yuli Metamorphic. The rose smell is a hit of pure ecstasy, I can’t describe it any other way. My eyes roll back EACH time. With that said, I think when summer comes around, it’ll be back to Cocoon I go. The Yuli elixirs are beautiful!
