Doing this series made me realize just how much I accumulate, and how quickly. International post duration makes it a bit hard to wrap my head around the fact that I have been buying so much stuff, but I have. And these posts are proof.
I know I keep yapping on about accumulation—so I’ll stop—I think I just want to kinda say that “I’M AWARE! I’M AWARE!” but I don’t know what to do after that admission. I don’t want to be the kind of person who recognizes the symptoms of hoarding and brushes it off with a laugh and a few jokes, steadily trudging to the point of no return. But anyway. These are some objects. That I bought (and received). As a human. Who likes pretty things?
Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Abundance
I’ve been putting off my Kjaer Weis purchases but I finally caved and got a single cream blush. I’m looking at the sets, but this is great for now. I love Abundance, even though it looks slightly scary. I actually found an old entry of Belly’s in which I commented on how much I love Abundance (I don’t even remember making that comment), so perhaps this is one of those fated things.
Ilia Beauty Lip Conditioner in Crimson & Clover
I’m looking at a frillion other shades of this beauty right here, but I wanted to test out the formula first (ah-mah-zing). I picked Crimson & Clover in a fit of orange-tinted lipstick rage/bliss—however you want to see it.
Ilia Beauty Lip Crayon in Dressed Up
Again, I resisted picking the rest of the shades from this line… because I am not so far gone (yet), but this one called out to me the most. I mean, hello. Have you seen how mauve it is?
Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme*
This is one of the items I was lucky enough to receive at the Burt’s Bees 30th Birthday Celebration. I actually received some other items, but I was intrigued by this the most.
Burt’s Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Creme*
UM. I love this stuff. This is my favorite one of the Burt’s Bees products I got to try. (Post on that will be up on Sunday, stay toooooned.) It smells so good and is so great to use during work hours because it sinks in quite quickly and doesn’t really leave a gross filmy residue in lieu of actual moisture.
K-Palette 1 Day Magic Fiber Mascara*
I got a few more things from K-Palette (love! ♥) but this one was, by far, the best new-to-me thing of the bunch. Predictably, I like the liquid liner I received as well, but this is just a revelation. So good.
Just a humble collection this time around. 🙂 What have you been enjoying testing lately?
