Clinique Pep-Start Pout Perfecting Balm

During Sephora's winter sale last year, I picked up two Clinique Pep-Start Pout Perfecting Balm in Cherry and Tangerine. They were going at half price and my sister told me she likes tinted (in the Western sense, as in non-staining) lip balms, so I bought them for her to try.

Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner

Last winter, I spotted these Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner on sale on Beauty Habit and was intrigued enough to pick up a few colors to try: Arabian Knights, and Crimson & Clover and Nobody's Baby from a Modern Romance Gift Set Tinted Lip Conditioner Duo. This is a Canadian brand I've heard and read about for a while but haven't had the chance to try.

Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve

Got these deluxe samples from Kiehl's sometimes in September, and among them the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and a 30mL/1fl. oz. tube of this Ultimate Strength Hand Salve which I'm using and loving right now.

Suqqu Clear Neon Lipstick

This year, my interest in Suqqu's new releases dropped substantially. They released new and different color combos and all were great, but funny enough none really spoke to me. This whole year, I bought only two new things from Suqqu, summer's LE release Clear Neon Lipstick in 101 潤赤 (Urumiaka) and the UK LE fall quad (not the big 8-pan).

Don't get me wrong, I definitely bought other Suqqu items, but they were all from past collections, including a superb lucky find of Creamy Glow Lipstick 17 Ichijiku (will review next), even though the outer box was destroyed during shipping. Call me silly, but I kept finding myself looking back and reminiscing on older stuff ^.^

HABA Squalane II

Been using this 4mL bottle of HABA Squalane II, not to be confused with the original Squalane Beauty Oil Part II ^.^" This was another freebie I got as part of the Revitalizing Moisture Serum Set below.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lotion

After switching out this Mustela Hydra Bebe Body Lotion of my little guy's bathroom because I couldn't stand the strong perfume, I've been using this 236mL/8fl. oz. bottle of First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lotion on him after his bath. Sadly, it's been discontinued so this review is late and useless, as usual =.=

DHC Mild Lotion Part II

It's been a looong time since I last used DHC Mild Lotion, and what an interesting experience to revisit with this 32mL bottle that was part of a Sube Sube Travel Set I received as GWP when I stocked up some Deep Cleansing Oil for my mum.

Etvos Mineral Classy Shadow

After years of avoiding colors that would turn reddish on my lids, I wanted to try actual red eye shadows. However, I didn't want to jump right into the statement-making, Lady Vengeance-red. I wanted to start slow with beiges, browns, and brown-reds, and this boring Etvos Mineral Classy Shadow in Proud Red (now discontinued) fit the bill ^.^

Sisley All Day All Year Essential Anti-Aging Day Care

When First Aid Beauty Coconut Water Cream didn't work out, I immediately moved on to this 9.7g/0.34oz. tube of Sisley All Day All Year Essential Anti-Aging Day Care for my daytime routine. I received this tube from Caty's generous swap package last winter and am slowly enjoying my way through it all. Thank you again, Caty!

First Aid Beauty Coconut Water Cream

This 9.6g/0.34oz. tube of First Aid Beauty Coconut Water Cream was another thing I tried once and had to put away. This tube was also from the Sephora PLAY! SMARTS Superfoods: Feed Your Face box.

L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream

I initially opened this 200mL/6.9oz. jar of L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream to use on my feet, because Origins Calm to Your Senses Lavender and Vanilla Body Souffle was too thin and nowhere near adequate. However, after just one use, I stashed it away until now, after I'd finished the current bottle of Mustela Hydra Bebe Body Lotion. It was just too damn nice to be wasted on my alligator feet, so I'm using it all over instead ^.^"

Celvoke Voluntary Eye Palette Part II

Last fall, I stumbled upon this Celvoke Voluntary Eye Palette 06 Purple deeply discounted via Rakuten JP. It was neither used nor an auctioned item but was only 3,780yen after tax and shipping, and being a 2017 holiday release, it wasn't ancient, at least for me, so I snatched it up without a second thought ^.^
