Back to Lancôme

My previous foundation ran out and I was looking for something new. Instead of picking something new, I went to back to my old favorite Lancôme Teint Miracle.

I have been really disappointed with my previous foundation and I felt I needed something that I knew that would work. Teint Miracle has served me well. There is nothing particularly amazing about it, it just works. It is light, spreads really nicely and does not clog your pores. It is not super thick, which I really like about it, however it does cover any imperfections and makes your skin smooth and glamourous. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it.

Also got the Lancôme loose poweder. I have never used loose powder before, been a compact powder girl for all my life. So it was a bit difficult at first since I had no clue what I was doing. But I think I got the hang of it in the end. The important factor is to have a really fluffy brush and gently brush the powder all over your face. As a pleasant surprise I found that loose powder really sets your make up on and makes it last longer. 

Do you prefer loose powder or compact powder? Or do you use both?

Clinique craziness

Hello all you beautiful people! Dont' you sometimes feel like you want to pamper yourself. I mean, when you go to the drugstore and you just need one thing, one tiny thing but then you see a bigger thing and you are like "oh wau that looks pretty, I have to have it". You are allowed to do that sometimes, aren't you? 

Anyway I had one of those random shopping moments. I went to get something entirely different, something I really needed and instead ended up getting a set of stuff. 

I got the Clinique eyes set.

The set includes a lovely pink make up bag, all about eyes eye cream, eye cream de-puffing roller and mascara.

I have all ready praised the all about eyes cream in my previous post and this time I will have to continue with the same line. Still loving it! The eye roller was a new experience to me. I do not know if actually does any difference as in de-puffs your eyes. However it feels really good and refreshing on those really stupid days when waking up is just too painful or when your previous night ended few hours ago :p

The mascara is tiny and cute. As I have said before I don't think one should spend a lot of money on a mascara as I feel you can get the same result with cheaper versions as you can with expensive ones. Even though the mascara does not trickle any big desires or feelings in me it is conveniently small and I can actually carry it with me in my make up bag.

So how you doing? Have you splurged on anything this month?
