I first mentioned Christopher Drummond Beauty here. As I mentioned, I bought this kit which retails for $95 for $49 on Open Sky* (referral link that gives me some credit to buy eye-burning hot sauce). A total bargain considering the brush is $28 and the full size concealer is $22.50. What did I think about this kit? Well, I can tell you….
Do you notice how I am expanding my NARS collection? I am peck collecting (not pecker collecting) or picking out products one by one like a bird pecking at food. I don't do a big major NARS haul, maybe because if I did I would feel buyer's remorse. Anyway, on this somewhat guilt-free single NARS purchase, I bought an eyeshadow--D. Gorgeous.
I haven't done one in awhile only because I didn't have anything to really make it on my list until this one. I guess it isn't bad but I just don't like it when I can't really use it to the bottom of the bottle.
I don't pay much attention to Pop Beauty because much of the stuff I see doesn't scream me. Okay, I basically feel too old for the line. If this line existed during my Punk/New Wave days I would have collected the entire line. Obviously, something niggled me back to the display while I wandered around aimlessly in Ulta. As many times I have passed this display, the Pop Beauty Paint Duets ($24USD) finally caught my eye.
I can't believe I skipped over this line at Sephora. Maybe, the display just didn't catch my eye; all black with black packaging kind of camouflages itself in a store that is all color. I am sorry to see Ultraflesh leave Sephora because these glosses are great!
I had frustrations over my black eyeliners lately because they weren't well organized. I just found it a hassle to unscrew jars of cream or gel liners, uncapping pencils, searching for powder black shadows. I wanted something that was organized and in one place. Well, well, my recent trip to Sephora had given me a sign to buy this Ultraflesh Black Magic Kit. It had gone on sale from the original $39 to $20. Is it worth it at almost half price?
I have many eye pencils and certainly didn't need anymore but my reasoning for buying this one is "I haven't tried it!"
I like mineral makeup, I admit it. It is one of the easiest foundations to apply even a monkey can do it! Lately, I have been wanting to expand my horizons a bit and try some other lines. I have thought, well obsessed, over Christopher Drummond's vegan mineral makeup line.
I succumbed to the NARS Spring Collection 2012, well not all of it. I had to reason with myself because I really didn't need the entire collection. We will see how I feel in a couple of days and my reasoning could just fly out the window!
If you aren't familiar with Ricky's NYC then you have been in a gopher hole for too long. (Okay, I am kidding but really, get out of that gopher hole.) This place carries hip beauty products including makeup called Mattese Elite. I am a fan of the eyeshadows as I have mentioned here. But did you know this line also has a great collection on nail polish? Check out the new Mattese Elite ME Amour Collection.
