New Obsessions, A Few (Dozen) Unreviewed Items

I am guilty of parking my almost two year old on a comfy chair with an iPad so I can write a really quick blog post. There's a part of me that's thinking, "you should be playing with her! why is she on the iPad?" but there's that other part of me that sees I haven't written a post in a couple of months and the pictures are piling up on my computer.

I've been into masks lately. Been trying ones here and there. $6 Sephora masks, an SKII mask that I've decided was worth another buy. I think I'll try a different Shiseido one next time. I've turned to the Shiseido Brightening line for a few products. Love that cleanser! And I'm rediscovering their foundations and powders. But I'm still having quite the love affair with oh so pricey Guerlain. A new bronzer in a coral silicone sleeve? I'm in! Contouring, I have to try that. Kevyn Aucoin or Becca? Marc Jacobs Beauty... I have to try that too. And of course, I need that new cream eyeshadow from Chanel. Caroube? Got it!

I'll be off to the beach soon. It's always a dilemma. We're going to take lots of pictures. Shouldn't I be wearing makeup? Yes, I'm going to pack that new sunscreen and a dozen other ones because I haven't decided which one I'm going to use. But will I actually have time to put on makeup? The heat and humidity will just make it slide off. I know this already. But I'm going to pack a few things. Hmmm... I think I'll go with these to start...

Now about that new bronzer. It's basically the same No. 3 bronzer I posted about before. There's also No. 2 in a turquoise sleeve. I thought about getting that one since I already have No. 3 (here) but I really wanted the coral sleeve and apparently, you can't buy them separately. Bummer! $55 for the bronzer with sleeve, no brush :( And well, the sleeve isn't so great. It makes it hard to open the compact and I actually worry about dropping it now more than ever. Cute though. It will certainly keep the compact scratch-free. New for summer and limited edition.

And just so you know, the child is no longer playing with the iPad, she's right next to me. I don't need to feel guilty after all.
