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.

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.

CO: Clinique Custom-Repair Serum

Heylo Beautiful Blossoms (BBs)! I hope you’re all having a better Friday than I am – rough day at work for me unfortunately on my end. 😦 I’m hoping that a session at the gym and blogging here before that will help me feel a little better.

I’m doing another entry on Clinique’s skincare line because I love it but my wallet hates it ಠ_ಠ. But when it comes to skincare, the wallet is going to lose the fight because good skincare outranks any makeup want list.

Today’s blog is dedicated to the Custom-Repair Serum, Clinique’s latest flagship product that does 4 things (according to Clinique):

Currently Obsessed: Clinique Skincare

Surprise! And no, I didn’t make a posting mistake by doing a Currently Obsessed entry on a Saturday – I did promise a double post yesterday but I couldn’t be on the computer and type away after work and I didn’t get back home until midnight. I was surprised I was even able to coherently make an entry last night / this morning because my eyelids were half open while my fingers were flying all over the keyboard lol.

Now that that’s out of the way, onward to the main topic: Clinique Skincare!

It seems to have a love-hate cult status: some people swear by it, some think it’s overhyped. I fall more into the former, as I have been using some of the Clinique skincare products (as well as the makeup, but there’s a reason why I’m listing the skincare more than the makeup) for some time and they’ve done wonders to my skin.

But I did have a disappointment with one of their products, which I’ll mention later on.

So which products do I love from the skincare line and how exactly did I get into Clinique?

Currently Obsessed Round Up

Yes, I’m aware of the date that this entry is being posted to. And yes, I’m aware that yesterday was April Fool’s, when the entire Internet is suspicious of everything it comes across. Now that the dust has settled and the jokes have come and passed, it’s time to get back into the swing of things and deliver as promised – the CO Round Up for the month of March.

Just as I was getting ready to sit down and make up for all you Beautiful Blossoms the missing post for last Friday, life called and served me quite a plate that kept me well into the evening. I should start considering posting while I’m at work at this rate lol.

Let’s take a look back at what I obsessed, shall we?
