Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 3 – Drugstore Makeup Tag

After two tags in a row dedicated to wallet torturing products, it’s time for the drugstore tag. I have seen it before in Youtube videos, but it was The Book and the Beauty‘s take on it that reminded me of including in it this week.

Makeup Tag Week is a series of posts of my answers to popular makeup tags spanning one week, one tag a day. Why? ‘Cause whenever I see someone else do tags I end up wasting waaaaay too much time trying to answer them for myself, and I thought I would give a better end use to my procrastination excuse.

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 2 – The Boujee Guru Tag

Considering the last post, I think one can infer about how bougie I want to be, but let’s access how much I really am.

Makeup Tag Week 2020! Day 1 – If I Had 1000$ to Spend at Sephora

If I had 1000$ to spend on whatever I wanted, I would probably buy shoes – but Sephora doesn’t sell those, so makeup it is. I’ll limit myself to the portuguese Sephora website, and I’ll also stick with the 1000$, that is about 841 euros.

You’ll be surprised at the amount of stuff I would get.

Quarantine is turning me into Schrödinger’s Cat.

I know that’s not the picture of a cat, but I couldn’t find a royalty free scowl that was that representative of my state of mind, so you’ll have to deal with the owl.

I’m a level-headed, reasonable, logical person who is guided by facts and facts alone. So you might wonder how come I’m starting to get affected by the covid quarantine 2 months after it ended.

Well, because f*ck logic. Nothing makes sense anymore.

Selfridges Beauty Sales Haul – Ltd. edition MAC, Huda Beauty, It Cosmetics

I saw Selfridges’ sales being announced somewhere about a month ago and decided to take a peek. Just a peek. Multiple orders later, I give you this (surprisingly unsponsored) post.

Danse Lente Mini Johnny Bucket Bag in Peach and Lemon – a review

I’ve referenced in the past that one day, a Danse Lente bag would be mine. After a nearly year-long courtship and a lot of intense sale scouting, a mini Johnny bucket bag was mine. Danse Lente decided to launch the Johnny bucket bags in this pastel yellow/subdued coral colour combination for Spring/Summer 2020, and it was a great choice for warmer weather – it’s feminine, it’s classic, it reminds me of sorbet. It was meant to be.

Makeup Empties – The Good, The Bad and The Tossed

I’ve mentioned before I don’t believe in declutters – I have a more medieval approach towards my makeup products: I keep them to serve as penitence for wasted money and to discourage myself from wasting more. So the only way anything leaves my makeup collection is either by getting used up or unmistakably turning bad.

So let’s see what products have managed to leave my Alcatraz of a vanity.

Skincare Empties – Tried, tested… but trusted?

A retrospective analysis of skincare products I used up over the past few months: some staples, some discontinued treasures, and a few bad choices. And whether or not I will/can repurchase.

Project 10 Pan – the Powder Purge Update #1

It’s been 9 months since my project pan introduction. Enough time to make a baby – not that that happened. That I know of. What I did make was some very noticeable progress on this project – I actually kept forgetting about the updates, and I’m literally writing this because I want to take the trash out and keep having these empty compacts laying around.

Now let’s move on with a brief description of the progress as I talk about my powders like bad tenants that won’t leave.

Summer Makeup Favourites (2020)

Well, I’m still working from home, and I can’t really go anywhere without constantly giving my nose, mouth and chin a mini-sauna, courtesy of a surgical mask, so I’ve become less and less interested in outfits and clothes, and more and more into makeup. I can still look cute in my Zoom meetings, full glam on the face and pyjamas on my legs.
