Mini Haul

Last weekend I went to the mall with my boyfriend and friend Bia. I had very specific shopping goals in mind-I met the beauty shopping goals, and failed miserably with the clothing shopping goals.

Anyway, a couple of months ago I did a review on the Philosophy On a Clear Day kit, here. I was just ehh with the whole set, but loved the retinol gel it came with. I went to purchase it in full size this weekend. I'm terrified of premature aging, so I thought this would be a great product to begin my anti-aging routine with, on top of that it also helps lighten my acne scars-bonus! Anyone know of a product that can help with broken capillaries around the nose or are those babies permanent?

I also stopped in at Mac. I need a good foundation for said acne scars and my NYX Concealer in a Jar just wasn't cutting it anymore. The sales associate recommended the Studio Sculpt concealer in NW20 (I know-I'm PALE!). She put it on with a qtip and then lightly buffed it out with a sponge. It looked flawless! This morning I put it on with my BE Concealer brush and try to buff it out and it does nothing. I may try the Qtip and sponge effect tomorrow.

Lastly, I got a blush palette. Yes, I only have three Mac blushes, but I can fit a NYX blush in there too. I'm trying to downsize my makeup storage and depotting is my first HUGE step at doing this. I have blushes and tons of NYX singles to depot. I plan on using Enkore's no heat method. After Christmas time last year I used the heat method to depot my Flirt! By Kohls palette and the "aroma" nearly killed me.

I plan on going to Ikea within the next couple of weeks to get some storage help in the make up area. I definitely plan on doing a before and after post!

Girl go to Target and get the white/clear plastic storage drawers with the holes in them. They are cheap, stackable & portable. The drawers are nice and deep & I put smaller baskets inside to use as separators.
Do you have a concealer brush??? I have one that I love from MARK it was like $5 and sometimes I use the brush that came with the Benefit Girls Night Out Kit, I think you bought that.
