As all beauty-junkies know, love can be a fickle thing. Favorites come and go, and products that were once, “the best thing ever!” sometimes lose their wow-factor when newer products come along. As someone who’s constantly testing new formulas, I have a pretty good sense of what I like and dislike, but every so often, that changes.
Here are a few of the items in my collection I’ve changed my mind about, for better or worse.
Last night, Dave and I went out to dinner and to see the new Cinderella movie as a sort of belated birthday celebration. My real birthday was last week, but I spent it at my grandfather’s funeral and I didn’t much feel like celebrating. Deciding it was time to stop moping around my apartment, I used the date as an excuse to get dolled up.
The two of us headed to Pacci’s, a local pizza restaurant that I love. They cook their pizzas in a wood-burning oven, and there’s something about the crust that’s extra delicious. I ordered a pizza topped with buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, basil and parmesan. We decided to skip dessert, but I was certainly tempted since the restaurant has a wall of Nutella at the entrance.
This is a tale about what happens when you lack self control… I’ve been trying really hard not to splurge on makeup the last few months. I have so many products that I really don’t need any new ones. But what fun is that? Any progress I’d made in sticking to a budget went completely down the drain during Sephora’s VIB Rouge Sale last week.
I went to Sephora not once, but twice during the sale. (Whoops!) I thought I’d sit down and take the chance to share my purchases with you. In an effort to keep this short, I’ll keep the product descriptions brief, but please feel free to let me know if you’d like me to do a review of any of these items in the comments below!
