New foundation, fragrance, and fun eye combo to share!

I have been purchasing quite a few items these days and I thought I would share a few with you.  This will be a quick one so if you have any specific questions about the products, please comment below and I will answer! 

I would like to start with a product that I have been loving this past week.  It is a foundation by Loreal called True Match Lumi.  I was at Ulta and ended up spotting it, remembering that Vanessa from TheBombShellSuite on YouTube bought it, I decided to give it a try.  This is a wonderful, light foundation.  It is sheer for me which I only really like, and can get away with in the summer.  The color suits my skin tone, which is hard to do these days so that is a plus.  I will continue using this for the summer and then most likely switch back to my Chanel's for fall and winter.  This is when I will need more coverage and my skin will be lighter.  Here is a picture of this foundation in the color C6 -
The next product that I would like to tell you about is a perfume oil that is actually a repurchase.  I was visiting my sister in Albany the other day and we went into my favorite store Circles.  A large sale table appeared and on it were Sage Fragrances for less than half the price.  Last year I bought one for $45.00, now they were all $20.00.  These are the cutest little perfume oils with the most  gorgeous scents.  If you are not familiar with Sage, her website is http://sagejewelry.com/ you can read all about her, and her amazing creations.  The fragrance that I bought is Turquoise.  It is so amazing for summer, very beachy.  This tiny little bottle packs a punch in the fragrance department.  I totally think that they are worth $45.00.  To find them on sale was a fab surprise.  I am actually going to have my sister pick me up a few more.  On Sage's website you can order samples, in case you don't have a place that sells them near you.  If you like unique scents, Sage is your girl!
The last products that I bought were also from Circles.  These are two products by Laura Mercier.  This is a brand that I usually skip over, accept for their concealer.  Once again I was watching a YouTube video and Michelle1218 was raving about the Metallic Cream Eye Colour in Rose Gold.  This is a gorgeous color and I really have nothing else like it in my collection.  I bought that and also a shadow in Pink Crystal.  Here is a photo of the shadow below.  As you can see its sparkly and gorgeous.  I haven't used it with the Rose Gold yet but I am positive it will be a winning combo -



Well that is all I have for you today my friends.  I do have other purchases that I will share at a later date.  I also have some fab new products to tell you about so stay tuned!

In the case of adding some more pretties that I cannot live without to my collection - This case is SOLVED!

All Nudes are NOT Created Equal!

So you all know show me a new nude lip combo and I am so on board!  I feel like I say this about all nudes but I have found the best nude combo in the whole wide world!  Ever since my girly Vanessa, TheBombShellSuite on YouTube raved about Bare Escentuals Buxom Lip Cream in White Russian I was on the hunt to make this baby mine.  I stalked Sephora like it was my job and couldn't seem to get it.  What I did get was my 500 perk bonus that I had been saving months for.  This was from Bare Escentuals and included a full size lip gloss, mini mascara, and also the new love of my life Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick in Sydney.  Who would have ever thought that I would find my holy grail lip product in a free 500 perk package!?!?!?!? This color is absolutely amazing and the perfect nude.  It goes on smooth and creamy and stays forever and ever.  I do use a lip liner with this, though you really don't need too.  I just like more definition in my lips.  I used MUFE Aqua Lip in 3C, which is another rec from Vanessa.  So after calling Sephora one day to ask the girl if White Russian was in stock, her reply was NO, I still proceeded to venture in.  I was just getting ready to check out and happen to glance over at THREE, yes that is right my friends, THREE BUXOM LIP CREAMS IN WHITE RUSSIAN! Now silly me just grabbed one, little did I know that it will probably never be seen again in my Sephora.  Oh well at least I have one of these gorgeous creatures in my greedy little paws FINALLY!  So I have worn it every single day and even purchased a full size Sydney incase I happen to run out.  My lips are the perfect shade of nude for my tanned summer skin!  All is good in the world and I am one happy little camper.
Here are the colors below for your viewing pleasure -








See how gorgeous they are?  All I have to say is that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE BUXOM Lip Products and cannot imagine using anything else.  I failed to mention that these products smell amazing and have a tingling effect to plump your pout.  As for the plumping part, I really don't know if that ever works for me, but they are fab as is!  I even went in, checking for more White Russian, and purchased another combo of Buxom products in PINK!  That is another post for another day.

In the case of finding products that make my lips look pouty, nude, and perfect - This case is SOLVED!
