When I hauled this item from Nordstrom in October last year, many of you expressed interest in seeing a review of this, so I prioritized it to test out.
And 4 months later, here we are! This is as speedy as I can get, ok? 😛
Here’s another item that I bought in Japan last June – I decided to open up the THREE Balancing Cleansing Oil and bypass some other cleansing oils in my stash because it contains no preservatives and I didn’t want it to spoil.
This product has a lot of hype around it, and I wanted to see for myself how a luxury cleansing oil performs. I’ll spoil the review here now because you’ll notice that the title mentioned TWO cleansing oils – the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil came to the rescue when the THREE oil failed to deliver. 😦 I have a question for you – when people ask if you want to hear the bad news first or the good news first – which do you normally say? I always want to hear the bad news first…
Finally! After owning this for more than a year, I got around to trying it and now reviewing it. 😛
Although this particular palette is no longer available, I hope my review of the products will help get a sense of bareMinerals pressed products in general.
In my “final” Hauluary post, I mentioned that I was waiting for a couple more shipments – this is one of them! In mid-January, I heard about TheBalm being on HauteLook for 50% off from Kaily – I was both excited and a little bit apprehensive. I’ve contemplated for years about ordering makeup off HauteLook since they hold such amazing sales, but living in Canada often adds a whole layer of complexity – not to mention expense – when it comes to ordering from US-based sites. So how was my first HauteLook experience from a Canadian perspective?
Pretty great, actually! 😀
I picked this up in back in May last year in my Japan trip… I’ve been quite slow in trying the items I’ve purchased in Japan. Part of me wants to dig in but a big part of me just want to look at the pretty stuff and keep them in pristine condition! 😛 I mean, just look at how cute this thing is!
But, nothing can remain perfect forever… 😛
❤ Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤ Here’s a sweet post to make you smile. 🙂 Back in December, I proposed the idea of a swap with fellow blogger, DaniiJane, of A Beautiful Thing blog. Dannii lives in the UK, and I live in Canada so it was an opportunity for both of us to get our hands on things that would otherwise not be easily accessible to us. Look at what Dannii sent to me! 😮
We shipped our parcels out at the end of January and they arrived last week. As with previous swaps, I asked Dannii what types of items she was interested in receiving, and I gave her a few things I was interested in. She sent me those and then some! 😀
This post captures the rest of Hauluary:
Most were bought on-line and some were bought up until the very last day of January! 😉
This manicure was actually worn last year around October but I had to hold off on posting it because my choice of the “random item” was a gift to my sister and I had not seen her yet to give it to her! 😛
Now I can finally post it without spoiling the surprise! 😉 So consider this a throwback Thursday post!
I didn’t really know how to name this post – but basically, I’ve been using two new nighttime face creams recently. The first one, I started using and reacted badly to, and the second was to the rescue.
Can you guess which was which?
