Thanks for putting up with my blog sale! I appreciate anyone who stopped by and all the orders have been shipped out! When I started the sale last week it was 90°F and sunny. Today with ending it it’s 55°F and extremely rainy.
I thought I’d update with some recent photos that I’ve been posting here & there. First from today. Cold and rainy. Also some of the things I’ve been wearing lately. The pleated skirt is my favorite. It has 3 different button options so I can wear it even on bloated days.
I did a makeup swap with Anupa recently too! The brown lashes are so pretty. If it stops raining I want to wear them to Oktoberfest this weekend.
I also fished out my balls of yarn and knitting books. I’ve started a basic roll-up hate and some 100% cotton dishtowels.
Last weekend my car broke down and I couldn’t get it fixed until later so I ran my errands using the stores near my house. Usually I drive a bit further out but as a stroke of luck I found these two rose-scented fabric softeners at the other stores! One is a more intense 1-rinse only type that is basically a rose perfume for your clothes from Downy. The other is Suavitel which I usually get in Sunset Rose but this one is Festival of Flowers which is a lighter rose fragrance than the other.
I purchased this spontaneously at a convenience store simply because it was Fairy Drops & the packaging was pretty. The product is very pretty too. I went with “Pink Crystal.” There’s a clear & nude version as well. I don’t know how different they look on lips though. My natural lip color is pretty dark and I don’t notice an extra “pinkness” to them.
The gloss itself is a non-sticky “jelly” type. Not being sticky is a lovely bonus for gloss. It’s loaded with oils and I would definitely say it has an oily texture and look to it. It lives in a world somewhere between gloss and balm. I don’t find it to be very moisturizing though. And it doesn’t seem to play well with others, as in, best worn solo. However it does last on the lips a while and adding a few subtle sparkles. I probably wouldn’t buy it again or any of the others.
I do love Fairy Drops mascara still though.
This is just so~so.
