Sometimes, you just need a girly day. A couple of weeks ago, a friend and I went downtown for just that reason. We spent some time catching up, had lunch at a local pub, and did some shopping. And boy, did we ever shop! We hit a ton of different stores. No wonder we were so exhausted by the time we caught the train back home. I tried to be good about spending, but ended up buying a couple of t-shirts (a cute floral print shirt, a My Chemical Romance tee, and a Supernatural tank top) and of course, a few beauty products.
What beauty products did I bring home with me? The Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Violet, the Apricot Body Cream from Forever 21, and the Morocco Orchid and Pink Amber Shimmer Fizz from Bath & Bodyworks.
So, what am I thinking of these new products? Here is a breakdown of my latest additions.
The Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Violet:
Let's start with the most exciting....the Too Faced Melted Lipstick. I've been hearing about this line from YouTube gurus, bloggers, and beauty fanatics everywhere. So, I couldn't resist trying one myself. By the time I got to Sephora, they were pretty cleaned out of shades. Thankfully, I got my hands on the one I really wanted: Melted Violent. (I have such an addiction to purple lipstick, I can't even deal with it.) Let me say: this product totally lives up to the hype. The pigmentation is insane! It is bright, bold, and absolutely gorgeous. It doesn't dry out my lips, the colour lasts really well, and it just looks gorgeous. You can see me rocking it in my recent sunglasses post. I would love to add more from this line to my makeup collection. Time will tell!
The Apricot Body Cream from Forever 21:
I don't normally grab lotions or body creams from Forever 21. I tend to stick to clothes and accessories exclusively. When my friend and I were waiting in line, though, this little baby caught my eye. They had a ton of lotions and beauty products just sitting there! So, I unscrewed the top and the smell was just so pretty. Light but noticeable. I've been using this one on my hands and arms a lot. It's not the best lotion ever but my gosh, does it smell good. Plus, it was only $4. Well worth the money.
Morocco Orchid and Pink Amber Shimmer Fizz from Bath & Bodyworks:
And lastly, the shimmer fizz from Bath & Bodyworks. I had put myself on a ban from buying anything else from this store, because I already have so much....but then I saw this at the front and couldn't resist trying it out. It's a mousse type product that fizzes on the skin. When you rub it in, you are left with tons of shimmer. It looks so pretty! I love rubbing some on my arms and collarbone for just a little extra pop. Totally perfect for spring and summer.
I was super happy with everything I ended up buying. I think they will get a lot of use in the coming months!
