Currently Obsessed: e.l.f. and Laura Mercier (Part 2)

It wasn’t long before I ended up at my favorite (wouldn’t say local, since there are e.l.f. stores that are much closer to me than the one I like) e.l.f. store – my Planet Fitness was literally less than a 5 minute drive from it. Keeping the e.l.f. lipstick in mind, I made sure to snag it with the new blending and swirly brushes from the Beautifully Bare line that, surprisingly, were available in-store too.

From previous experience, the store usually gets products that get dropped on e.l.f.’s online store much later, so to see the blending and swirly brushes on the store shelves right after they dropped online was a bit of a surprise, but one that I wasn’t gonna protest because I didn’t have to worry about shipping.

Currently Obsessed: e.l.f. and Laura Mercier (Part 1)

And one that I’m now certain that I will chuck out: NYX Lip Lingerie (because they made a Lingerie line for lids and I made the mistake of using it as a liquid lip).

Welp, Beautiful Blossoms, I did say in an earlier post today that I was going to blog after work! Sure, it took me a bit of time to get settled (I left one of my bags at the clinic so I had to go and get it), but now everything is well again in my makeup space.

I’m kinda glad to bring back the Currently Obsessed series because it’s been some time since I became obsessed with what I use in my makeup rotation and in this case, I found myself doing a Pong between the e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Satin Lipstick in A Touch of Blush and the Laura Mercier DS Velour Lovers Lip Color in Devotion.

And pretty much disliking the NYX Lip Lingerie in Teddy, which I wore today and I can honestly say that it is NOT flattering on me.

A Quick Life Update

Hi Beautiful Blossoms! I have a bit of downtime with my extra work shift so I figured I’d check in to see what was the last thing I wrote here. And it was a pretty dark entry, especially with what happened when it was written.

Today’s post has a bit more cheer: I managed to pass my ExCPT exam, which means I can officially say that I am a CERTIFIED PHARMACY TECHNICIAN. I miraculously survived the exam (I can’t begin to describe how severely uninformed I was as to what was going to be on the exam) and I applied for a Pharmacy Technician position in Walgreens. Now, from my previous experience with CVS, I was expecting to not hear from them for some time after I sent my initial application.

Next thing I know, I get a call from one that I applied to and they want me to come in for an interview this Wednesday. I’m still in a somewhat state of disbelief that the response time was so quick. But here’s to seeing what will happen.

As far as makeup updates go, I’m going to write an entry regarding 2 lip products that have become my go-to these past few days: e.l.f’s Beautifully Bare Lipstick in A Touch of Blush and Laura Mercier DS in Devotion. One was a complete chance while the other got eyed strictly by color and turned out to be a damn good bet. Pics will be hosted on the Insta account for space and bandwidth purposes.

I’m looking forward to blogging post work tonight!

Currently Obsessed: Tony Moly Egg Pore Nose Pack

Happy Friday, Beautiful Blossoms! And I finally found out why my phone never reminds me to do an entry every Friday – I never set a reminder on my phone. I’m hoping that’ll be my “doi!” moment of the day.

It doesn’t help that I haven’t been active with my makeup usage as of late thanks to my recurring bouts of depression. If I’m getting repetitive with it, I’m sorry – I honestly don’t know how else to describe part of what I struggle with in and out of beauty blogging. But I don’t mean to be a downer every time I post an entry here – I do want to be able to blog in a happy mood too.

In fact, I struggled to find a product to present today – not only do I have a lifetime-supply equivalent stash of beauty products that I’ve bought in almost a year, I’ve featured nearly every product that I regularly use. Some are cult favorites (Naked 3, ABH Contour, Beauty Blender, UD De-Slick Setting Spray) that have been blogged about endlessly, so I don’t feel that it’s needed for me to write a CE post about them.

And then there’s Tony Moly.

Currently Obsessed Round-Up

Heylo, BBs and welcome to April’s Currently Obsessed Round-Up! I hope you lovely peeps had a good Friday, as I’m writing today’s entry from my sickbed – yep. First, moving, now the flu. It just loves to frickin pour when it rains.

Now, let’s get to the good stuff!

Currently Obsessed: Kiko Cleansing Milk and Moving

Heylo, BBs and welcome to another belated week of Currently Obsessed! I am in full-chaos mode for a week now because I’m in the process of moving out of my current apartment, which means that my attention has been focused on deciding which belongings have to go, which have to stay, and making sure that nothing gets left behind. I’m still in the first part of the process because the place I’m moving into is not fully ready yet.

But I remembered that I made the same mistake last week with the last Currently Obsessed and that today is Saturday. Which means I missed my posting schedule – but not too late that I completely went AWOL.

With that out of the way, this week’s Currently Obsessed product is another Kiko product (I swear, I’m not shilling for the company. My debt can have a conversation with you regarding how much I burned it during Kiko’s Sale Days) that has saved my butt these past few days that I’ve opted to wear makeup: The Cleansing Milk.
