Yesterday, I went to Sephora as a result of I’ve been feeling kinda “blah,” and I wanted to perform a little pick-me-up magnificence buying. Aspect notice: I believe it’s a mixture of the dreary climate we’ve been having recently and hormones. Extra on this in a number of.
Anywho, I went in with a really imprecise plan of selecting up lipgloss and liner, however I didn’t have any particular manufacturers or colours on my record, so it was an improv scenario. Whereas I used to be there, I discovered myself drawn to previous favorites and issues I bear in mind loving again within the day passionately, which is why I ended up with an Hourglass lipgloss within the shade Canvas and a tube (pen?) of YSL Touche Eclat. (I additionally grabbed a brand new eyeliner.)
Which leads me to at this time’s Q&A query!
Have you ever ever modified your thoughts about your tried-and-true make-up favorites?
Once I was doing MBB full time, exploring and testing new merchandise was a part of the territory, so I used to be all the time making an attempt new issues, however often I’d fall in love with one thing so deeply that I’d come again to it over and over. And that’s the reminiscence I’ve linked to Canvas gloss.
It’s been some time since I’ve worn it, so I used to be desirous to put on it once more. I beelined it to my automotive so I might slip on a layer, and after a number of swishes and a pair lip smacks, I discovered myself staring in my rearview mirror and pondering to myself, “Hmmm… That’s it?”
I nonetheless like how easy it appears to be like, the opacity and the load of the gloss on my lips, however reality be informed I anticipated to be wowed – however wasn’t.
I believe an enormous a part of it’s that I’m so protecting now of the house in my make-up bag; I actually need to like one thing with a view to preserve it round. And if I don’t really feel that rush of pleasure, that thrill, then I’m not having it.
Canvas, you’re fairly sufficient, however I wish to be swept off my Nike-wearing toes!
Identical factor occurred with the Touche Eclat. I attempted it on and was like, “Dude… Why?” LOL! It actually lays easily, which I bear in mind, however I didn’t really feel like my pores and skin regarded livelier or brisker or brighter. I assume 30-something me preferred various things!
Oh, I did have a really inspiring second with the eyeliner, although.
It’s Hourglass Voyuer Waterproof Gel Liner in Solstice, a metallic bronze. I’m very a lot into liner that defines my lash traces with out trying too harsh (whats up, you’re formally in your 40s when that occurs), and this does simply that. It simply provides slightly something-something – my higher lashes look thicker, and my eyes pop slightly extra. The components is easy and tender, and it stays on! I believe I need the cool brown shade, Cave, subsequent.
So, like I used to be saying earlier, I’ve been feeling slightly “blah” recently.
I believe it’s a mixture of not seeing the solar for such a protracted stretch and woman hormones doing their factor. The nice factor, although, is that I’m at some extent the place I’m higher about recognizing it early on. It looks like a fog that’s creeping in, and now I can simply determine these first tendrils, whereas earlier than I’d simply out of the blue be caught within the thick of it and be so overwhelmed that I couldn’t discover my means out. A part of “staying out of the fog” entails doing all the fundamental care I have to really feel good, like getting sufficient sleep, altering out of my pajamas very first thing within the morning, doing my hair, brushing my enamel and placing on make-up that makes me really feel lovely, in and out.
Thank goodness for lipgloss and all of the little magnificence pleasures! They actually do make my days slightly brighter.
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
