BeautyBay: Stila/Too Faced/ St Tropez haul

Image

L-R: Stila ‘In The Light’ Palette, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, Stila Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer, Stila Color Balm Lipstick in ‘Elle’.

I got my order from beautybay.com in the post today, much to my excitement.

Stila ‘In The Light’ Palette, This palette is AMAZING. I love its cute packaging and the colours are so pretty. It is comparable to my Urban Decay Naked Palette, but is different enough that it is worth having both.

Stila Color Balm Lipstick, in the shade ‘Elle’. This lipstick is my new favourite. It smells and feels minty (which I love) and it feels amazing on the lips. This shade is a bright pink, but isn’t too bold, which I also like.

Stila Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer, in Bare. This is a full coverage foundation with a concealer located in the top of the lid. I love the packaging, as the applicator is like a scooper, which allows you to use as little or as much product as you like.

Image

Too Faced ‘Better Than Sex’ Mascara, This mascara has gorgeous packaging, and it’s tongue in cheek name leaves it with a lot to live up to.  I am trying to make myself love this mascara, but I am just not sure. My main problem with this product, is the amount of product that comes out with the wand. I will continue to play around with it and see if I can make it work.

Me wearing the above mentioned products (and nothing else).

The last thing I got is the St. Tropez Gradual Tan,  just in time for the warmer months :)

Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you think x

L-R: Neutrogena Naturals cleanser/ makeup remover, Nivea Essentials Rich Regenerating Night Cream, Lush Aqua Marina Cleansing Seaweed Gel, La Clinica Rebalancing Vitamin A Cleanser, Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture, Jacqueline Evans sample pack.

Skin care that I love. I have dry, dry, dry skin, and since we are just coming out of winter in Australia I have been moisturising very frequently. A cream that I love for my poor dry skin is the Bioderma Atoderm Creme (below) I got these 2 samples in a Bellabox.

Diorskin Scuplt and NARS Sheer Matte

2 favourite foundations
These are my two current foundations, my favourite being the Diorskin Sculpt Line-Smoothing Lifting Makeup. It is a luxurious consistency, and provides a full coverage. The NARS Sheer Matte Foundation is also fabulous, but I find I have to work a lot harder to make it work for me. I have ordered Stila Stay All Day Foundation and Concealer, so I will be sure to share my thoughts on that product once I receive it. I have two ‘drugstore brands’ that I use quite regularly as well. These are Natio Pure Mineral Foundation and Bourjois Paris 10 Hour Sleep Effect Foundation. I picked these up at Priceline when I went in without a particular style/ brand in mind.

The Work Space.

I have a new desk. It is big and white and glossy and I love it! Studying from home has left me feeling quite uninspired as of late, and a new work space is just the thing I need to keep me on track and add some inspiration. I am still waiting on some orders from Typo and Officeworks with some new stationery and desk accessories, so for the moment it has quite a minimalistic feel to it. I love it!
