My Fall Look!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Before y'all throw tomatoes at me for being MIA for eternity, I'd like to say that yes! That was my fault. But always look at the bright side of life. That is, I am back. After a long summer being away and super busy, I finally have time to write a blog! Since it's the end of September, what time better to write a brand new fall look post?

Smelling Pretty for Summer - Balenciaga Florabotanica & Elizabeth and James Nirvana White



Over the years, I have bought way too many big bottles of perfumes. For one thing, they are cheap compared to their smaller brothers and sisters. Over the years, I have also learnt that I can never finish a single perfume in my lifetime. Because no matter how much I love them at first whiff, I always end up hating them when I get to about the half point. 

This summer, I have fought with my inner money-per-unit-saving demons, and bought two roller-ball perfumes. So far, I can safely say I will finish them, and will utilize my cash to the fullest!

Sephora's Current 500 Point Perk - NARS Cult Favorites



I have saved my Sephora points for a very long time. Sometimes I will redeem one or two 100 point perks, but I don't think I have ever redeemed for a 500 point perk. Most of those 500 point perks look pretty stingy and cheap from a company like Sephora, considering that people like us spend hundreds of dollars in their store every year. And really, this is kind of like a gift-with-purchase when you accumulatively spend 500 bucks.

Anyways, other than the full size Benefit Coralista from several years ago, this is the first one that I think is worth getting. This is just out today (by today I really mean yesterday, as it is like..3:00 am right now), and I had to go in to get them. I know they are all minis, but the blush itself contains 4g of product, while a full-sized Nars blush contains about 4.5g of product, so this mini is kind of full size in a mini container. The lip crayon and the eyeliner each contain exactly half of the full sized products.

To be honest, when I opened these, their tininess did shock me a little. Especially the blush. It is literally a mini. But I digress, you can't judge things entirely on the size of their containers!

My $0.02 on the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System


A few years ago, when the Clarisonic first came out, I was horrified by the idea. The idea of using a giant electronic tooth brush on my face sounded terrible. Our teeth is the strongest bone in our entire body, but our skin is delicate. How can it withstand a giant electronic tooth brush? About two years after it came out, one Christmas I had the Sephora VIB 20% coupon. I saw the colourful Mia2's hanging around at the back of the store, and the pink one was so cute! I went over the stroked the brush, seems much softer than my tooth brush! Therefore I gave it a chance and brought it home.
