After getting everything and anything that has ever been on my beauty wish list the past year, this year I’ve been trying to curb my spending, specially when it comes to makeup. I’ve been pretty successful thus far. This is the first makeup item I got in 2021, so you know it has to be something special.
It combines two of my favourite things: Guerlain’s Météorites and blush.

I don’t need excuses to buy beauty products, but it’s nice to have them. I’m new to the beauty advent calendar mania (I know, it’s surprising, but they didn’t use to come by easily in Portugal), so this year I’ve been paying more attention. I was already down for the LookFantastic Advent Calendar when this thing dropped – 11 full size products for 85 pounds. Yes, want, mine.

You know that feeling when you just found something so inconspicuous to be so amazing? Like randomly choosing a wine at the supermarket and finding out it’s the best red you’ve ever had. Like, Emma Stone could never.
This is what these five products are – better than Emma Stone. Surprisingly so.

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.

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.

I went ham on this year’s summer makeup collections. I actually rarely buy from Bobbi Brown, but the logical, impulse-controlling side of my brain decided to go on vacation this quarantine period and I couldn’t reach it for the life of me. So I ended up with more new makeup than I ever planned.

Kiko is currently having a sale on their website and these blushes are 50% off. Plus, even if they get out of stock sometimes they come back – I bought the Tuscan Iris shade two months ago when the collection released and Florence Dreams (the lightest one) was sold out, and now it’s back in stock and for half price.

Is it just me or does every summer makeup collection this year has had this metallic, rose gold/millennial pink packaging? Not a complaint, just an observation. The By Terry packaging knocks it out of the park and I confess that was the main reason I felt compelled to get this palette.

In my 19 Makeup Products of 2019 post there was so much left to say, that I decided to make a dedicated one with the rest of my random thoughts and reflections on the past year, makeup wise. Turns out my thoughts could be expressed in bullet points, and I ended up with what looks like a makeup tag. So I decided to turn it into a makeup tag.

I love post-Christmas sales. ‘Tis the perfect time for retail therapy. The makeup sets that are already a good value to begin with get even more discounted and it’s my goddamn kryptonite – and I was rushing to get this post out because these products are still all available and all on sale.
