I have two huge draws of make up. All high end. I'd say thousands of dollars worth.
So I have no idea what possessed me to jump on Kiss and Make Up at midnight about 2 weeks ago and jam 3 new useless things into my shopping basket and quickly check out.
So this is what just landed on my desk at work from New York.
- Laura Mercier SPF 20 Tinted Moisturiser. Why did I buy it? Because people keep raving about it, that's why! And because I'm often running late in the morning to brush on my Armani Silk Foundation - as good as it is, it streaks like heck and takes a good while to brush on perfectly. I've been using a Clinique mineral foundation/powder on the lazy days, but the colour was not matched properly (too light) and now that it's summer I look like a ghost! So LMTM here I come.
- Shu Uemura - ultimate expression mascara. What a load (or should I say what a tube) of rubbish. I may as well have bought a tube of that pink and green Maybelline stuff. I've been a Diorshow fanatic for 4 years and I don't know WHAT possesses me to try something different because I'm perenially disappointed each and every time. This one was just a moist blob on my lashes which is now hard. It's not soft and full and long on my lashes like Diorshow. Major disappointment. When will I learn my lesson?
- Laura Mercier Petite Eye Palette in Cool - this is a really cute little compact with just the right amount of shadow. In my 10 years of make up wearing I've never reached pan in a shadow (apart from when I smash it on tiles, oops), so it's sensible to buy this mini pack, BUT eyeshadow doesn't suit me.. or I don't know how to apply it! So this pretty little palette will go to the bottom of my make up pit and never grace a pretty face. Sigh.
