Review: Haus of Gloi Spring Collection

Acheté

Another pre-trip purchase that I made was, yes, once again, some products from the Haus of Gloi spring collection. I keep telling myself that I have enough hand creams, but then the list of seasonal scents comes out, and I lose all willpower! I didn’t have time to write this up before, so hopefully some of these are still left, since I know that they do sell out. (I actually had to order all this in 2 goes, because initially something I wanted was out of stock.)

My Surratt Beauty Experience at Barneys

Affilier Acheté

Surratt Beauty It’s been ages and ages and ages since I wrote about my desire to try out Troy Surratt’s beauty line, but shortly before I went away, the day finally came for me to head to Barneys and experience the works. I had tried a couple of the products in the line here and there, but I really wanted to immerse myself in the full Surratt Beauty experience. And oh, did I ever.

MAC Full of Joy blush Sometimes I feel like MAC puts out a new collection a week. I went through a period where I actually bought things from each one, but I’m now good with sitting most of them out. But when I got an email about their spring blushes, I did go straight out and pick up MAC Full of Joy blush.

Wishlist Wednesday #31 – New Spring Scent

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*

Oh, spring. First it seems like you’ll never come, now you’re here like gangbusters. And you’re making me want a new spring scent! In my fragrance forays, I wound up purchasing a sample of Chanel’s Bel Respiro, one of Les Exclusifs de Chanel, exclusive fragrances sold only in Chanel stores. I’ve been wearing that sample to death lately, and my fragrance recognition has developed enough that the first time I put it on, I thought, “Hmm. Green floral.” (It is.)

Rouge Bunny Rouge I’m back with some Rouge Bunny Rouge in action! I literally couldn’t wait to try out the shadows I showed you, so I actually put them on that day and took these photos. It’s true love.

Despite the fact that they don’t show up super pigmented on me, they just look so lovely. I wanted to contrast the warm colors of the shadow with a cooler lipstick, so I pulled out a favorite of mine that doesn’t see the light of day nearly often enough. Read on for details!

This week’s question again comes from my friend Andrea, and seems fitting since I am currently traveling.

What was your best or most memorable shopping experience while traveling?

There are SO many to pick from, for me! But last year around this time when I was in Spain, I scored my Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain in Garçonne for about €23 at a random tax-free store on the street in Malaga!! (It retails for $49.50 at home.) 😀

Rouge Bunny Rouge is one of those under-the-radar brands that, when first reading the name on other blogs, I’d go, “What’s that brand called?! What IS that?!” But from everything I saw, I knew I needed to have some of it in my life. And I was right.

Shani Asks You Sundays – Expiration Dates

I’m getting on a plane tonight and heading for one of my favorite cosmetics-buying countries for two weeks, and it’s left me thinking about the other products I have at home. I read recently about people who threw out makeup because they were past their expiration date, and I thought to myself, “They put expiration dates on makeup?!”

Maybe it’s something I should be more aware of, but I want to know what you think.

Do you pay attention to makeup expiration dates? Do you throw products out after they’ve “expired,” or do you keep them anyway?

Personally, the only makeup I really replace regularly is mascara. I don’t get a new one every 3 months, as they advise, but I do change that up most often. I have bags of old makeup that I don’t use (and have been looking for a place to donate to, but more on that a different time), but I find myself periodically digging into the bags and pulling out old products I haven’t used in ages and am suddenly in need of again.

I personally feel that things like powder eyeshadows and blushes don’t go bad. Lipsticks are obvious when they’re past their prime—they’re not supposed to smell and feel like crayons!—but most everything else? Nah.

Anyway, bon voyage, lovely readers! I have posts scheduled for when I’m gone, but I’m not sure how often I’ll get to reply to comments. But please leave them anyway! 😉
