Weekend Catch-Up #6

Weekend Catch-Up #6

It’s officially Fall, and this week I actually had to wear a light jacket! Repeat: A JACKET! I appreciate living in the sunshine state, but I am also enjoying the cool breeze coming through the windows (in daytime I can still go to the beach). Beside the wonderful weather, I had a very busy week (hence the lack of posts), but I have been using new skincare, new makeup, and shopped for more products that I am excited to try…

Empties: I finished another Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Cleansing Oil and I was not prepared for it (no backup!!). I quickly ordered another one, but in the meanwhile, I am using plain grape seed oil to melt down makeup and I am doing a second cleanse to make sure that I remove the oil properly. I am eagerly waiting for the new bottle of cleansing oil to arrive, but you know, I am actually thinking of trying a cleansing balm next… any recommendations?

Re-purchases: Sadly, my Ilia Beauty Funnel of Love lipstick expired (and was also in pretty bad shape from intensive use), so I bought a new one (I am curious: do you guys replace your expired lipsticks?). I was trying to find a review on my blog to link it for you guys and I realized that I never featured it! Shame on me, because that is the perfect peachy-nude lip color. I also got another ED4OLO Cleansing Oil, as I mentioned above, and another Kjaer Weis Cream Blush that I have been wanting to try.

Skincare Stuff: I am really enjoying the YULI Liquid Courage and I think that it has played a huge part in keeping my skin clear for the past two weeks. Not a single blemish in two weeks! I am also using the YULI Metamorphic Elixir, but so far, I think that I may still like the Cocoon Elixir better. I have been trying to finish my Aurelia Miracle cleanser, but for some reason, I did not enjoy my second jar as much as my first one, so I will probably not repurchase it. Instead, I am using the YULI Halcyon cleanser (a very, very light cleansing gel) and the Oskia Renassaince Cleansing Gel, which I am quite pleased with.

Lipstick Love: I have been loving the Kjaer Weis cheek combo of Embrace Cream Blush + Radiance Highlighter, so I am keeping it pink all the way with Ilia Beauty In My Room. I cannot get over how pretty that blush is and I might have been tricking myself into thinking that it makes me look a bit… younger.
