I love the sun and after so many years in the cold Switzerland I was homesick. However January and February were soooo hot that I felt like a little snowfall would do good to me. Lol. Let’s switch our moods to Fall and Winter and the chill that makes these seasons so nice in certain regions of Brazil. Even where there is no winter, the sun heat gets down and the weather in general is cooler, much more pleasant and agreeable.
Until now I have been trying on cheerful bright colors on my nails, but this week I changed it all. Literally, it went from water blue to red. I put a beautiful shade of wine called “Autumn”, by Anita brand.
Yesterday I went to a department store to buy some things to bring on the trip back to Brazil. I know that in my country good quality cosmetics are expensive, so it’s better to provide myself a nice beauty bag before leaving. Just so you have an example of the difference in price, I bought two tubes of anti stretch marks lotion – Mustela Stretch Marks Double Action – and paid 47 Swiss francs for both. In Brazil, a tube of the same cream costs around 150 reais! It’s almost five times the price! I was shocked when I saw the price, so I will just bring enough tubes of Mustela to cover the rest of my pregnancy.
Beauty bag of the month – In the store I saw that L’Oréal has launched a new haircare set, the EverRiche line. I had it seen it before, but this time I decided to buy it. The smell is delicious, free of sulfate but full of camelia and apricot oils. I opted for the shampoo and conditioner for dry and damaged hair. Although my hair is not exactly damaged right now – I got rid of the old hair two months ago – I always like to invest in products with a high power of hydration and nutrition, mainly because I do relaxation and my hair is naturally very dry . Tomorrow I’m going to use the full range, including the treatment mask, and will post everything here.
Another investment that I made was a Garnier BB Cream. In fact, I would buy from Vichy, but the price difference was considerable – 39 francs against 11.90 Garnier – so I opted for the cheapest one, anyway it is my debut with BB Creams, better buy a cheap one to start with.
Today I used the cream, spent over a powder, blush and a tiny bit of pale pink shade to brighten the eyes, the new mega luxurious mascara from Mac – Extended Play Lash – and honestly, I loved the result. I did everything in less than 10 minutes, and liked the effect “au naturel.” Garnier BB cream also has a 15 sun protection factor.
Make up – I bought these items already a few days, but I’ll talk about them too. It is a face powder, a concealer, a mascara and a delicious lipstick, all from Mac cosmetics.
Well, that’s it. I will then pumper myself with all these nice products and will slowly be posting my impressions here. What would you like to see first?
bisous mes amours!
