a box of goodies in the mail could make any girl happy =)
I ordered from the Benefit website because of the 20% sale they were having and so I got some freebies!
That Gal brightening primer sample (that Iyah loves)
This is what I really had my eye on...CORALista!! I really like Benefit's blushes, very pretty yet natural looking. Try this one at the counter!
Mona and Diana/Mayaari/Right Boobie have been raving that Benefit's Creaseless Cream Shadows/Liners are better than MAC Paint Pots, so I took advantage of the 20% off and got two. They're both shimmery but it's a bit hard to show with my camera.sippin n dippin (peach parfait) and samba-dy loves me (I love that name!)
sippin n dippin is a pale, golden "peach parfait" color, it kind of blends in with my skin tone but gives a hint of yellow shimmer (whereas I tried birthday suit at Sephora and it just blended in completely...so aptly named!), and I haven't tried samba-dy loves me yet but it looks like a nice shimmery sand shade. They are definitely creamier than Paint Pots. I hope they'll come out with more color choices (like greens! *ahem*).
You might rememberI got the Boscia Willow Bark Breakout Treatment (there are two sizes, I got the To Go version) not too long ago (about a month ago)...
Here's what Sephora says:
Willow Bark Breakout Treatment To Go
What it is:
A convenient click pen for on-the-go spot treatment.
What it is formulated to do:
Boscia Willow Bark Breakout Treatment To-Go pen contains a gel which helps provide relief from breakouts effectively and safely, even for sensitive skin.
What else you need to know:
This preservative-free, botanically-rich proprietary formula offers a gentle and effective means to ensure your skin stays clear and healthy-looking. Now you can fight surprise blemshes any time, any where, with this convenient mini treatment stick.
I put it to the test this week when a mean ol' pimple waged war on my face...and the breakout treatment totally failed. =( Sure it was gentle, but it didn't actually do anything...I don't think it made a difference (maybe it might have kept the pimple from being super ugly, but it was still ugly). I used it day and night and the pimple still survived for days until finally it was gone, leaving a big scar. I wonder if I should keep the breakout treatment and give it another chance, or exchange it for something else at Sephora (like a good concealer, haha).
Any suggestions for a good spot breakout treatment, spot scar fader (not Ly-Na) or concealer?
P.S. I've been playing Sims 3, will post about that another time!
