I relapsed.

I guess it’s about time to pray the serenity prayer:

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.”

You all know I promised myself not to buy makeup in the next six months (except repurchase of products I’m currently using). I was okay in the beginning but there are just some brands/products that I can’t resist.

Like NARS.

NARS came out with their stick foundation a few months ago and I couldn’t stop myself. I tried. I honestly did. But I gave in.

NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick in the shade Gobi

Look how convenient the packaging is! The other tip of the stick is a sponge that you can use to blend.

NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick in the shade Deauville

When I buy foundation I usually buy 2 shades. 1 shade lighter than my skin tone and 1 shade darker than my skin tone. And then I mix both shades. That’s how you get the perfect shade of your foundation

I also picked up their new matte lipstick.

NARS Power Matte Lip Pigment

Save the Queen

Done it Again

Get it On

Wild Night

You know what I’m saying? How can you resist these.

2 weeks ago I made an online purchase of MELT Cosmetics. Only because I have been wanting MELT Cosmetics Stack eyeshadows and it’s always out of stock. So, when it went back in stock 2 weeks ago I grabbed the chance.

Rust Stack

Dark Matter Stack

You have no idea how much I wanted this. But it was out of stock for a long time. Especially the Rust Stack. It seemed like everyone wanted this. I’m so happy that finally it’s going to be in my hands soon!

I also ordered Physicians Formula’s latest blushes.

Murumuru Butter Blush

I got 2 shades (this come in 4 shades).

Plum Rose

Vintage Rouge

I also got their Butter Highlighter

The reason why I caved in and got this is that my friend in NYC, Marites, has something to ship to me through Johnny Air cargo and the box has extra space left. She told me to use the extra space kasi sayang.

And the other reason is I love Physicians Formula’s Murumuru Butter Bronzer that came out sometime last year. It is one of my favorite bronzers. So, when they came out with their Murumuru Butter blush and Butter highlighter I knew I had to get it.

Reasons justified.
