Depot lover that I am, would you be surprised to hear that I even decanted many of the products that I took with me for a trip to the Caribbean in February?
Due to our laughable flight connections during winter, we were flying with a low cost airline before embarking on the transatlantic flight. That means that I was packing as light as possible! It was not my first rodeo in this arena, but I had a new strategy this time: decant as many products as I could into the gazillion sample MAC containers that I have accumulated.
Peggy Sage is a French brand that was recently introduced to a local store that catters mainly to professional hairdressers and beauticians.
So, nosy that I am, on a day when I went to buy my hair colour I had a quick look around at what Peggy Sage has to offer. Unfortunately, I have yet to encounter a stick or cream eyeshadow that does not catch my eye, so of course I picked up some of the shades and swatched them on the back of my hand.
Let me tell you about beauty news that have excited me, looks that I have loved an anything else that has been going on this past week.
MUG foiled eyeshadow: I was really excited to read that more MUG foiled eyeshadows are being launched. I have yet to bite the bullet when it comes to this formula, but all the swatches I have seen look stunning. I love that the MUG site offer themselves swatches of their products. Plus, the price is really really interesting (specially if the Euro is high!).
One of my recent resolutions when it comes to make up is to consolidate as much as possible. One way that I have found to do this is to depot anything and everything that I can so I can have the products more easily accessible.
I keep all my Z-palettes plus a few other odds and ends in these two Ikea cardboard folders. It is a cheap and convenient solution for storage. You could even write on them with a marker.
Ok, I know that I am eons late to the party, but I just recently discovered Seche Vite.
Before finding what has become a necessary step when I do my nails, I have used various clear top coats: from Essie to L’Oréal to Kiko. And while my nail lacker lasted longer than when I would wear it on its own, it is nothing compared to Seche Vite!
I am besotted. I confess it. I love how it makes my nail colour last longer without chipping and it also keeps my nails shiny for longer. And it also makes your nail polish dry faster? This is the result of a miraculous alignment of the planets!
I do not know what else to say to convince you to try it if you have not discovered this little treasure yet. Go get it!
As I like doing things in convoluted and mysterious ways, my first dry shampoo was not Batiste, but an Osis+ which I reviewed here.
So, when I saw this 50ml container of the famed Batiste on an online shop, I thought I would give it a try and take it with me on a trip. As you can imagine, silly that I am, I came back with an intact bottle, so as I ran out of Osis+ I thought that I would finally give it a try.
