Hello my pretties! With Christmas fast approaching I’ve been a holiday-partying fool this past week! Add in some present-wrapping and Christmas shopping and I’ve barely had a second to rest, let alone update all of you on what’s been inside my advent calendar! We’ve got five days to cover, so let’s jump right in.
Days 11 and 13 both featured items that I already have and adore: Benetint and Posietint. If you’re not familiar with these lip and cheek stains I suggest you check them out, because they are the ultimate I-just-happen-to-naturally-have-this-gorgeous-flush products. Posietint is my favorite summertime tint, while Benetint is a classic red that’s great for parties. Since I already have bottles of both, I gifted them to my sister!
Unfortunately, day 10 gave me the first dud of the calendar – Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer. This little primer stick comes in adorable polka dot packaging, but my love for it ends there. It did nothing to extend the life of my makeup, and made me look far less flawless than I normally do – it made my dry spots even flakier and gave me a somewhat chalky appearance. Not cute.
The advent calendar gods must have known that my skin was in need of some TLC, because behind door number 12 was a nice little jar of Total Moisture Facial Cream. It has more of a perfumey smell than I’m used to in a moisturizer, and that made me a little nervous, but so far it hasn’t bothered my skin at all and after one use I woke up with much softer, less itchy and non-flaky skin – hooray!
Today’s gift was an elastic hair band with a bow charm on it. Cute, but a little too youthful for my style – I’ll be gifting it to one of the littler beauties in my life!
