Re: Beauty Purchases This Week; 2/22/24

[ Edited ]

I'm trying to purchase some more makeup remover and another brush from ELF, but the website won't take my card. It comes up with techncial error. I tried two different cards, and no luck. I have the funds because I recently used a card on HSN. It must be the website itself. 

 

Maybe on to Amazon or Ulta. 

 

Update: ordered Almay makeup remover cleanser from Amazon. I have used Almay in the past and liked it. I also ordered Body Shop shea shower gel from Amazon. Got both on discount prices. ELF website still not working.

Re: Beauty Purchases This Week; 2/22/24

This week I bought:

 

Col-lab Matte Addiction Liquid Lip Color in Kink - Sold only at Sally.  I use this as a base color before I apply my lip color.  It's kinda like applying lip liner over the entire lip before the main lip color, which I have also seen done.  Would love to find some other brands of non-drying long-wearing lip stains or similar with some more color options.  I could never wear these on their own even if I did like a matte lip because they are drying.  I fear this color may be being discontinued since my store no longer seems to ever have it.  I do have one other color I like, Out of Breath, for when I want a more berry lip color.  

 

Palladio Liquid Eyeline in Black Brown - Also sold at Sally.  I like these better than the pen-style liquid liners.  I can control them better and they don't dry out.  I have an eggplant shade that I've had for years.  I now have the full complement of colors.  

 

Instytutum Transforming Melting Cleanser - Bought this on a whim since it was 50% off with a Today Code.  No way would I pay $60 for a cleanser no matter what is in it.  

 

BTW, on the same Today segment they had some products from a line called Versed.  Spelled like the drug but pronounced in one syllable.  They specifically mentioned a body lotion with retinol.  It sells at 6 oz for $19.99.  Will be available at Target, but you can buy now on their website and get 10% off +Free Shipping with a subscription.  It's currently $17.99 on Amazon, no subscription required, but you can get an extra 10% off with Subscribe & Save.  

 

I have a couple of other purchases, but I'm waiting on them to arrive before I post about them.  UPS is not tracking one of my orders which always makes me nervous.

Re: Beauty Purchases This Week; 2/22/24

My orders came in today, so I'm back.

 

At the grocery store today picked up:

 

O'Keefe's Working Hands - It's a staple for me. 

 

O'Keefe's Healthy Feet Foot Mask - Looks like it's a Baby Feet sort of thing and I've always wanted to try one.  Publix had it on clearance for $2.49.

 

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink in 180 Revolutionary - Hope to use it as a lip color base. 

 

My orders:

 

Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump Shimmer Glass duo in Rose and Soft Pink - This duo came from HSN.  I already have this in Berry and really like it

 

Goldwell TopChic Permanent Haircolor - 2 shades of my mix.

 

K18 Professional Mask - This is used in conjunction with the pre-color treatment I already have.  In the past, I have used the OTC mask normally used weekly as a post-chemical process bond builder.

@monicakm 

I have been a bit preoccupied and meant to ask how you are feeling and if you were able to reschedule your surgery?

 

Hope you are doing well and I do love the color of that Fenty gloss.

Re: Beauty Purchases This Week; 2/22/24

Thank you for asking @kate2357 

I've had a really good day today.  

I'm doing well overall.  I told my husband

tonight I'd be back to my old self if it wasn't

for my lower back.  Since the heart Dr said it was 

the Meloxicam that caused the HA, I haven't

felt safe taking it (but I'm thisclose to getting over that!)

Surgery isn't rescheduled yet but it's 

getting closer.  I've got to send some papers

over tomorrow and then the Dr's office 

should be calling me soon.

Re: Beauty Purchases This Week; 2/22/24

I haven't been here in a while, but my beauty purchases for the last couple of weeks since I was in Las Vegas for a week:

 

GXVE powder blush duo in a pink shade called Ex-Girlfriend

Hourglass mini ambient blush in the Luminous Flush shade. 

2 regular tubes of Paula's Choice SPF 50 sunscreen and one mini tube as well.

 

All from the Sephora store in the Miracle Mile mall store in Las Vegas.

 

Murad Oil Control Mattifier broad spectrum SPF 45 PA ++++ which I bought from the Marshall's store on the Las Vegas strip. They had a lot of Supergoop sunscreens there too.

 

One Clinique lipstick in the shade Bare Pop in the new green case from Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada.

 

2 Hard Candy eyeshadow crayons in the shade Stoned which is a light gray matte color from Walmart Canada.

 

I also decluttered old lipsticks from Marcelle and Milani.

Re: Beauty Purchases This Week; 2/22/24

Several months ago I bought a new lip gloss from Clinique in color, Apple Pop. I liked it so much that I went back for another called Bubble Gum which takes all my other lipsticks up a notch. It is a bit sticky but I like that as the sticky ones last so much longer.

Re: Beauty Purchases This Week; 2/22/24

I purchased a set of Laura Geller's Kajal mascara from QVC and a Geller eye shadow palette from her website.  The eyeshadow palette is called Pink Buttercream and it is beautiful. 

 
 
This may be for another thread, but I'm still waiting for my Laura Mercier QVC order placed on 2/20.
