Well the summer of 2018 is almost over and what do I have to show for it.
It’s been hot here in South eastern Ontario, one of the hottest that I can ever remember. We had almost a whole week with a heat warning in effect where the temperature was in the high 30’s and when you factor in the Humidex it felt more lit it was in the 40’s, not fun to be in at all.
But heat aside the Summer was a pretty good one for Family and Myself, we have had time to get out fishing and swimming and just spend some time together. Also I have been able to get some dressing in which I normally never do until the colder months like late September, but I was given the opportunity and took it.
Before dressing though I was able to save up some money and treat myself to some new makeup, I may have went a little overboard on the Lipsticks but what can I say, I love a bold red lip now. Between my saved up money and my points from Shoppers Drug Mart. I spent no more than 35.00 on new lipstick, eyeshadow, foundation and mascara which when you think about it is not a lot at all.
I picked up all the make up with sale prices of at least half off and some I had coupons for that gave me mega points towards money off again so all in all it was a very good deal. My favourite’s right now is Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks, I love the feel and I love the colour pay on this brand. I was able to pick up 4 new ones which were 2 creams and 2 mattes. The colours were Certainly Red, Love is On, So Lit! and Red Rules the World.
The only tried the cream ones so far, but both really really pop when on and don’t seem to make me look too bad.
Along with my my Lipsticks I also picked up some new Mascara as I have never used it very much and need all the experience I can get with it. I picked up some Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express. The formulation seems to be okay and does seem to add some volume to my lashes, but I did not pay attention and picked up blue. Does not seem to make a big difference.
And seeing as I love eyeshadow as well I had to pick up the new Covergirl Trunaked pallet in Dazed. I have 4 of these now and I really like the way they go on and how much coverage I can get out of these.
But Possibly my best buy of all was some new Fit me Matte+Poreless foundation from Maybelline in 130 Buff Beige. If you have ever read my blog before you will know I have spent years trying to find the right shade of foundation with no luck yet. Someone on Twitter told me to try and Maybelline Fit me line and I was not disappointed. I did pick up a few and ended up getting one that to me seems to be a great match. It covers well and seems to leave a nice surface that does not accentuate my pores, which other foundations I have tried do. I am so happy I found this.
I decided since I have the time and there is no snow on the ground, I was going to leave my comfort area and head out of doors which I don’t normally do while dressed. I do live in a very rural area, but it’s not uncommon for people to just either head up to the house or just show up unexpected. Needles to say I did feel exposed while outside of the house in broad daylight, but it was a thrill and I can’t wait to do it some more. It was pretty hot while dressed so I am hoping by the time fall rolls around I will have more pictures to take.
