Starting today I am going on a makeup no buy for 3 months, so until January 1. So it is a good thing I picked up a few goodies to tide me over! I have been purchasing way too much makeup lately so this self-imposed ban is necessary!
Some items I picked up are the Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo, which is a repurchase for me. I originally used the Oscar Blandi Invisible Pronto Dry Shampoo spray but it did not absorb the oil in my hair as well as I would have liked so I switched to the powder formula. This dry shampoo is definitely the best I have ever used- it absorbs the oil, leaves your hair feeling clean, and does not leave any gray or white cast to my hair! I can not live without this stuff! I also picked up a new foundation, the Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation. I have been wanting to try one of Bobbi's foundations since the color range is yellow based, it really matches my skin tone perfectly. I wanted something moisturizing and that provided medium to full coverage without being matte, and this foundation has all of that!
I also picked up the Anastasia Brow Duality Pencil which is a brow highlighting pencil with both a matte and shimmery side. I got the small size of the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer which everyone raves about, and the Nars Blush in Gaiety. I don't have any bright pink blushes so this purchase seemed justified!
I purchased a Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Sand Stone which is a nice neutral color that I think will be a good base. It seems similar to MAC Quite Natural Paint Pot but I'm tired of Paint Pots! I picked up 2 lipsticks, one from the new Dior Nude line in Grege, which is the perfect peachy pink my lips but better shade, and one from Bite Beauty in Salut. I have been dying to try one of the Bite lippies for a while now so I'm excited about to see how this feels! Last but not least I picked up the Dior Nude Hydrating Concealer because my undereyes seem so dry lately and this seemed to cover and hydrate at the same time.
All in all I am really excited to try out my new purchases! I have about 3-4 lipsticks on their way out so I think adding a couple was ok...
