NARS Haul! Plus a Proactiv+ Update and a Pretty Monday Lip

Mr. Postman: Be My Valentine? That’s exactly what I said (in my head, of course) when I checked my (overstuffed!) mailbox tonight.

I could have kissed him for all my treats. They’re wonderful and I can’t wait to play :)

So, here’s what I got:

  • NARS Laguna Illuminator (1.1 oz.)

  • NARS Skin Essential Vitamin Serum (2.5 fl. oz.)

Nars Skin Essential Vitamin Serum

  • NARS Super Orgasm Blush (0.12 oz.)

Nars Super Orgasm Blush

I’m probably going to rock the Laguna Illuminator tomorrow, I feel like being the girl with the good glow tomorrow, especially in light of all of the yucky weather. I’m not going to start rotating the skin serum into my routine just yet, I’m conducting a patch test. Even though the brand says the serum is “for all skin types” I’m still always as careful as possible. I’ll see how the patch of skin reacts to the small drop of serum I applied, fingers crossed because I’ve heard a lot of really good (but to be fair, really bad) things about this product and I’m eager to form my own opinion.

Not sure when I’ll be trying the blush just yet, but I like that I am trying it in this adorable mini size, I’m sure I’ll love it and it’ll be the start of my NARS blush addiction, like many other girls: I now dub this little gem my “gateway blush.”

I’ll be sure to take pics and post them! Stay tuned.

Now…about that Proactiv+ Update: you may recall my January 24, 2014 post about how my skin was fighting dirty and kicking me arse. So, just like I said I would, I ordered the Proactiv+ Kit and it came last weekend. After 48 hours of testing, you guessed it: major allergic reaction. The kind only a double serving of a soothing aloe mask could control. It wasn’t awful but it wasn’t pretty or even a little bit pleasant. Needless to say: I’m returning it. Tomorrow actually. It’s all packed up and ready to go and it looks like, just as with anything else, I’m going to have to put in the hard work (and drink the water. ugh.) that I was trying to circumvent by ordering the kit. But that’s okay. I’m hoping that if I baby my skin, and really just pamper it, it will quit its tantrums and banish the awful breakouts, blackheads and flakes to the time out corner. Like seriously, just go suck your thumb and take a nap already!

One more thing, because I loved how I looked and more importantly felt about myself: here’s a picture of my cute and punchy lip from earlier today. It’s Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in (030) Smitten. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Disclaimer: I was really lazy with my beat face today, like I didn’t hardly beat it at all. But I had to do the lip: it carried me through the day.
