Weekend Shopping 7/23/16 - What I Bought and What I Think
My weekend shopping posts are always done a week after the actual purchases. I want time to try the items so that I have something to say about them. So, here's what I bought last weekend.
NYX Mineral Matte Finishing Powder in the color light/medium. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this powder. It's the most finely milled powder I've ever used. It looks beautiful over the tinted sunscreen I'm using. I'm having to have lots of restraint because I really want to go get some backups. I don't like to buy stuff I don't need, so I'm determined not to buy extras of this.
Revlon Ultra Volume mascara - this was such a huge disappointment. I have not been able to find a really good mascara that will replace my Revlon Grow Luscious mascara that was discontinued. The search continues because I haven't found anything that even comes close. This one certainly doesn't.
Elf Moisturizing Lipstick - I have a lipstick addiction. I need to stop. I don't need any lipsticks and I have no idea why I bought this one. It's a pretty color but there's nothing memorable about it. I wore it once and promptly forgot I had it. Like I said, I need to stop.
I was hoping this soap would be really moisturizing. I love the Aveeno brand. I love the Aveeno moisturizers that I use and I was hoping the soap would be just like that. It's not. There are no suds to this soap. It seems to disappear in my wash cloth. I definitely won't repurchase it. I just can't tell whether or not it does anything at all.
Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm with spf 20 - I was looking for some more tinted lip balms with spf. I really like the pink one. It gives a youthful, healthy look to the lips. I don't like the rose tinted one at all. It looks brown on my lips. I've been wearing the pink one all week and I really like it. I like wearing something on my lips with spf.
