Shopping for Clinique and Estee Lauder at Douglas + GwP

Hello beauties!

Last week I planned on going on a shopping spree at ParkLake Mall for some NYX Cosmetics goodies (look at my purchase), some skincare essentials and new makeup products. I love shopping at Douglas! It’s actually my favorite store when it comes to beauty purchases and this feeling goes way back, more than ten years ago when I was to travel abroad quite often (especially in Germany) for a good shopping session. I also have a discount card and they always come up with great offerings, not to mention they offer impressive GwP and a variety of samples to try out at home even though I buy only one product.

Smashbox Highlights Creamy Cheek Color from Naked Beauty Summer 2010 Collection – Review, Photos, Swatches

Hi everyone,

I will start by telling you that I’m not a fan of blushes and I use them so rare lately that I didn’t feel the need of having more than 3 blushes.

I have the Smashbox High Lights/Creamy Cheek Color (preview post) for a while but I didn’t use it until a couple of days ago. This product is part of Smashbox Naked Beauty Summer 2010 Collection which includes Limited Edition products so I don’t see it available anymore on @Smashbox website.

The price of this blush is $26.00 and contains 7.6 g of product. The packaging is simple but I like it because you can see the two colors trough the transparent glass.

High Lights/ Creamy Cheek Color is actually a beautiful pink creamy blush duo (one part is creamy highlighter while the other is a creamy blush) with Vitamin E. If you like creamy blushes then you should definitely try this one but if you are used to apply blush with a brush it will take some time go get used to your new technique of applying blush with your finger. I’m not very good at it either but I’ve already used it 3 times and my technique it’s improving. 🙂 Continue Reading
