Shu Uemura and Mabeline




First and for most, happy 4th of July!! *yay* We are having wonderful weather!!! ( for once!) I hope everyone has a great time today.

Now to the post:
Shu Uemura:
Here are a few items I had picked up last Friday after a rainy work day.
Picked up some items at a Shu Uemura Counter at Bergdorfs. I also made it to the P&J counter but forgot to take pictures =\ next time.

I mainly went to Shu for a blush I have been eyeing for months and a deep sea water.
For the water, I chose the rose scent. They have like 8 different scents I believe. Rose smelled so romantic to me there was no other choice for me. I apply this item after my toners and it is quite refreshing. I have heard this works as a refresher and can be used like MAC Fix +.
I own a Mac Fix + and think I am using it wrong because I see no difference on my face at all... I keep it on my "regret buying products" list.


I picked up the Shu blush in the shade M Pink 33 E. I have seen this on quite a few blogs and the color seems so cute I just HAD to get my hands on this. Ive been using it for a few days and love the shade on my cheeks. I definitely recommend this blush! I swatched a few at the counter but was persuaded on this item.

I also picked up a box of the deep sea moisture masks. I wanted to help my skin stay hydrated for the summer months. The SA stated that this item was constantly out of stock and had just come back the day prior my arrival. It was a kinda expensive for sheet masks, and I have yet to try one but will do a review with my opinions on if this item should be a repurchase. The box comes with 6 masks. I did not see individual packets.


A replacement eyelash curler because bc my old Shu was starting to fade in power with the dullness of the rubber.
I will never change eye lash curler brands after using Shu's. FOREVER.

Mabeline:
Recently in an attempt to save money I have been browsing my local pharmacies for more cost saving items. I had heard very good youtube reviews in regards to Mabeline blushes. I pickled up the dream mousse blush in Pink Frosting ( haven't used this yet but will today!)and Mabeline Mineral Powder in gentle pink.
I have tried this Mineral powder and I must say it is quite excellent. Far more pigmented than many would believe, and the color makes you look quite rosy. Like more than a happy healthy look, a light flush as if you had you had just come home from a chilly windy day but not for long. Definitely a keeper! I also definitely recommend this item.



Red Lipsticks:
For the last few weeks I have been reviewing blog after blog, and review after review, in regards to red lipsticks. I had always heard some women state if they want to feel powerful they just wear their favorite red. As you can tell from my recent purchases, I seem to be more about pinks...

I had purchased Revelon "Cherries in the Snow 440" I had heard this was a super famous color from the Revelon line and found it as a deep raspberry. (No pic sorry) This color does NOT look good on me =*(

If any of you have a favorite red lipstick you would like to rec commend, please do in the comment box. I believe every woman should have 1 red lipstick in their collection and it seems like a constant back of the mind search to find the red lipstick. I have just begun to search!!

Have a wonderful long weekend everyone!!!!
