  9. I love their Thermal water. Do you like it?

    Makeup For Ever
    Flash Pallet

    Nyx Lip Pencil in Dolly
     
  10. I do...I'm surprised how much I use it.
     
  11. On a Kiehl's bender lately. Just received my latest order of 2 jars of Lip Balm #1 and a small bottle of Creme de Corps body lotion. This lotion has to be the best I have ever used, very thick almost like a cream, it leaves your skin instantly smooth like baby skin and no greasiness. I think this shall become my new hand cream. :heart:
     
  12. Chanel nail polish "June"
     
  13. Some Sephora knick knacks:

    Fresh Marigold Rose Water
    Fresh Soy Cleanser
    Jurlique Calendula Cream (such a nice texture, good for my sensitive skin)
    Benefit Posietint
    Darphin Intral Cream (so, so good for reducing redness in the mornings)
    Givenchy Croisiere Bronzer (gorgeous, pillowy soft texture, so lightweight!)

  14. That bronzer IS amazing! I tested it at the store. It applies like a dream.
     
  15. Biotherm Aquasource nuit
    Biotherm Aquasource gel

    I needed something lighter for my skin now that summer begins. I got amazing help at Biotherm, and I also got a ton of samples. Walked away with a bag full. Excited to try something completely new.
