Opera Lip Tint and Lip Tint N Part IV

More Opera Lip Tint in LE color 07 Pink Fraise which I grabbed off of Amazon JP last summer. I also caved and picked up one new Lip Tint N in 08 Burgundy, previously a LE color that was sold out everywhere and was brought back as part of the new incarnation's permanent lineup.

L'Occitane 3-in-1 Cleansing Water

Here we are, concluding a fourth week of social-distancing and I've gotten back into using cleansing water again. After dashing out to pick up groceries or takeouts, I just want to be rid of sunscreen. Since our little guy has been home with us (we chose to keep him home even though his daycare remains open--and they must, for the families without work-from-home options and for medical personnel), I take naps with him every afternoon and I don't wear sunscreen to bed, that's for sure.

This 200mL/6.7fl. oz. pump bottle of L'Occitane 3-in-1 Cleansing Water is a new addition to my current roster of cleansing waters. However, it's also been recently discontinued in favor of a new Cleansing 3-in-1 Micellar Water.

Sisley Sisleya Firming Concentrated Serum

Finished up with Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Mermaid Skin Hyaluronic H2O Serum and promptly moved on to this 2mL/0.06fl. oz. tube of Sisley Sisleya Firming Concentrated Serum because, well, it's tiny ^.^"

This tube was among the generous care package Caty sent me last spring (thank you, Caty!) that I'm slowly working my way through. I figured I'd get some of the smaller samples out of the way before starting a full size of something else, which I'd rather save for when my tiniest one arrives so I don't have to think about what's next in queue. Actually, I won't have the time or the mind to think about anything anyway. It's one thing to have a baby, it's a whole other set of problems to have a baby in the midst of a global pandemic. But hey, no one planned for such a thing so we all will just have to do our best ^.^ Hope everyone is keeping healthy and safe!

Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream

Some month after the Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy Nighttime Balm post and I'm already more than half way through this 206g/7.3oz. tube of this Baby Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream. This set off a small panic as I realized this was the last in queue and went a bought several giant bottles of different baby lotions and creams for the oncoming summer and fall.

Air-drying Racks for Makeup Brushes

A while back Bellyhead posted on Instagram a picture of her freshly washed makeup brushes drying upside down on some nifty brush stands. What brilliant drying racks, I thought, and immediately asked her where to buy them. She named Benjabelle, a brand that supposedly invented these drying racks. However, by the time I got to Benjabelle, severe copycat competitions from Amazon had priced the company out of the market and they had stopped (hand!)making these brush stands altogether :(

Bioderma Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Balm

After the Cream version of this Bioderma Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Balm proved to be inadequate for my alligator skin, I first tried the 8mL sample tube I got from some Nordstrom order a while back. I liked it better, and went and bought the 500mL/16.7fl. oz. pump bottle instead.

Koyudo Brushes Part XII

After declaring I'd skip the rest of the Koyudo Somell Garden Collection, I ended up going back for the Somell Garden Kinomi Series instead. While I wasn't too keen on the "fruity" dyed goat hair in the original Somell Garden brushes, I really liked the dark walnut handles in the Kinomi Series. After all, this walnut handle was the reason I picked up Somell Garden Lemon x Walnut Face Brush. In addition, I got a retractable lip brush from the M Portable Series, because it was about time I own one or two ^.^

In this batch, from left to right: Somell Garden Kinomi Series Almond Powder, Macadamia Eyeshadow, and Pistachio Lip Liner/Concealer (I skipped the Hazel Foundation because it's polyester), and M Portable Series M015 Silver.

Maquillage Dramatic Rouge EX Part II

These Maquillage Dramatic Rouge EX in Limited Edition RD and Limited Edition VI (actual color names) were part of the holiday collection 2018. There were actually five colors, PK, RD, YE, VI, and BS, and they were supposedly color-changers once applied, I think. Of course I was curious and picked up RD and VI to try.
