Check out the things that I recently bought!
First up, the L’Occitane counter. I was looking for something to even out my skin tone and nourish my skin. The Immortelle Brightening line has concentrated anti-ageing properties with brightening properties. Made from a flower from Corsica (a daisy), it reduces wrinkles and leaves skin looking more uniform and radiant.
The Brightening Moisture Mask gives real hydration to the skin and preserves a youthful glow. It also protects against free radicals and firms skin. The stuff also smells amazing!
The Essence is a serum that does a similar thing, although probably to a greater extent. The Mask I will use daily, but this serum probably only once a week. It stimulates collagen production, diminishes age spots and smooths skin.
Essie nail polishes! I wanted to get some more natural pinkish colours as well as a nice gold. I picked up Blanc, Ballet Slippers, Fiji and Good As Gold.
How pretty does the gold look! I think it would look really nice if I painted it with Mint Candy Apple. Gold and mint are my favourite colours right now. Can’t wait to try all these colours on!
Last couple of things I picked up was from Bourjois. If you don’t have the Bourjois brand near a cosmetic store near you, you can buy these online here. I was looking for something similar to a tinted moisturiser. I’ve heard a lot about CC creams lately. Apparently CC stands for ‘Colour Correcting”. It’s meant to address issues like redness and will have more of a whippy, fluffy feel and finish. I am a HUGE fan of the Bourjois brand, so pretty much headed straight for this. It contains SPF 15, has 24 hour hydration, and contains 3 colour pigments – apricot for anti-fatigue, green for anti-redness, and white for concealing.
While I was over near the Bourjois products, the Shine Edition Lipsticks caught my eye. Maybe it was the pretty packaging (I bought the lipstick in Rose XOXO, and the packaging is a teal colour). I’ve used this lipstick quite a bit already and I absolutely LOVE it. It’s super moisturising, like a balm, but it also has an amazing rich colour. I really really want to pick up more!
