April and May 2017 empties

Seeing as we’re already halfway through June, I’d better get these up now-ish.

This will most likely be rambly and boring, so feel free to click away. *shrugs*

April empties

e.l.f. Shine Eraser blotting papers – I could have sworn there used to be 50 sheets per pack, but now there are only 30?? As a result, I’m going through these faster than before. Also, now that it’s summer, I’ve been using 3 sheets a day.

Nature Republic Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Collagen Solution – I like these gel masks more than paper ones. They feel more substantial and soothing. I enjoyed this one and have one more that I need to use before I leave!

Jouer lip gloss in Sunset – Just tired of this one. I don’t use lip gloss much anymore, and I have no feelings one way or another about this.

Yes to Carrots Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 – It’s okay. I know there are better spf moisturizers out there, but I’m kinda cheap when it comes to skincare. Mostly because skincare ingredients etc. intimidate me.

The Body Shop Frosted Cranberry eau de toilette – It’s a sweet, one-note fragrance. I liked it, but I bought it only because I used to work there and needed to wear a company fragrance.

The Body Shop Moisture Foundation in 05 – FINALLY DONE WITH THIS MOTHERFUCKER. This foundation just wouldn’t die and I started to really resent it. It’s been discontinued, but I wouldn’t repurchase it if it were still being sold. It wore horribly throughout the day, looked greasy, and clung to dry patches. Blech.

The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector – HG status. I will forever repurchase this hand cream. Again, the scent is not for everyone, but it is the best hand cream for my perpetually thirsty paws.

FOTD: Changeling

I haven’t posted a makeup look in ages. In fact, I haven’t created one worth documenting in ages either. I did this waaaay back in April. Whoops.

This look started out with the intent of using TopShop Chameleon Glow Changeling, but the name of the shadow and its incredible color shift kind of took over and it evolved into this.

Aaaand I just realized that I never did post pics of that gorgeous eyeshadow! So, here you go:

TopShop Chameleon Glow Changeling

Looks mildly interesting in the pan. Reddish with a green shift. Okay, what makes it special?

Feast your eyes:

How pretty is this?? It has such a delicious, delicate iridescent sheen, and that color shift! I don’t have anything else like this in my stash. It is utterly unique.
