My mom and I had a girls day and went to the Verizon store for them to tell me there was nothing they could do about my phone losing time, lunch, a movie (The Man from U.N.C.L.E Soooo good had bad reviews which means it’s awesome) and then some shopping at Ross, Ulta and Versona. All that to say I’m going to share what I picked up from Ulta; and tell you the tale of the Sewer Lip Crayon.
Maybelline was buy one get one 50% off so I picked up my old favorite Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer in the Brightener shade and something new for me to try the Oil Control Translucent Pressed Powder in Soft Cameo. I haven’t used it yet but I’ll give an update when I do.
I’ve been using the Simple Micellar Water after cleansing to make sure I get all my makeup off and I have just a tiny bit left so I decided to pick up the All Bright Micellar Cleanser from Boots. Also haven’t used this yet but I’ll let you know if it’s as good or not as the Simple. Also I’ve never used Bioderma which is what I would consider the Grandfather (would that be grandmother..?) of Micellar Cleansers/Waters.
I was in search of a volumizng powder since mine disappeared… I found the Batiste XXL Plumping Powder and I have used this and it works pretty well.
I have heard great things about the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation so I thought why not add to my foundation collection and give this one a try? (sidenote I’m almost out of my Revlon Colorstay so I justified this purchase… 🙂 ) Guess what people? This Foundation is the bomb dot com. For real it is my new Favorite. It is medium to full coverage and it somehow looks better the longer you wear it.
I also picked up the Philosophy Here Comes the Bride kit just so I could get the *free gift* which was this awesome Weekender Bag! The Philosophy Kit will go to good use as I’m sure I’ll have a bride to gift it to at some point 🙂
My sister in law bought my mom a makeup kit from Ulta and my mom fell in love with one of the lip crayons in the kit named Love Story. While my mom was visiting my sister in Colorado she was applying her makeup in the car (does everyone’s mom do this or just mine…?) My mom opened her car door at a stop sign because it wasn’t closed all the way and her lip crayon which was on her lap fell off and rolled down the street into a sewer drain. You can’t make this stuff up people. So we were on a hunt to find her a replacement lip crayon in the color Love Story. Our Ulta was out of that color so I ordered it online for her but the story was too good to not share. I placed the order a few days after our visit so I texted her and let her know that I had ordered her ‘Two sewer lip crayons’
