All Cosmetics Wholesale Haul

 Hi everyone! I placed my first order a week ago at All Cosmetics Wholesale and it arrived today; it was quite fast, especially given It's the holiday season. They offered free shipping on orders over $50 which was a nice bonus on top of the great prices. I had heard good and bad things about ACW but I'm happy to report my experience went great. Everything I ordered arrived and intact, phewf! As you can see I ordered all Estee Lauder (they carry discontinued items I was so glad to see they had).
Quad in Smoky Pink, single in Polished Platinum, and duo in Mocha.

L/s in Spanish Red.

Jewel Powder.

 Have you ever ordered from ACW? What was your experience? 
Thanks for reading!

Dry Winter Skin

Normally I have dry skin, but during Fall/Winter my skin gets wicked dry. Here are the products I'm currently using to combat my epidemic.

                           1- I use Cold Cream and tissue to remove all my makeup. This gets off everything without having to tug on the skin.

2- I remove all the Cold Cream with Avalon Organics Vitamin C cleanser in conjunction with a facial brush. This not only cleanses well and gently, it leaves my skin radiant.

3- I spray this hydrating toner on my face and wait 5 minutes for it to completely absorb. Unfortunately Burt's Bees thought it was genius to discontinue this after it was my HG for 2 years. If anybody could recommend me one that's similar I'd really appreciate it.

4- I alternate between these two moisturizers depending on how dry my skin is that day. Mychelle when my skin is dry and Burt's when my skin is DRY. Both are very moisturizing, get rid of dry patches, and leave my skin plump and dewy. 

5- Nothing beats my dry skin up like Nivea Creme. I normally stick to natural body creams and lotions, even Argan oil, but I can't find anything moisturizing enough. This is the only thing that does it for me.

6- Moisturizing the skin from the inside out is a must. If I stop taking my Flaxseed Oil and drink less water, no amount of heavy cream can help save me.

Hope this helps and thanks for reading!

My Wishlist

 Hi everyone! Here are some products I'm currently lemming!

  Naked 2- I didn't want it at first cause I thought it was too similar to Naked but after all the swatches I've been seeing lately I want it and I want it bad.

Bobbi Brown Red- Bobbi makes great reds; already have Hollywood Red and Old Hollywood and really enjoy both. I also wanted Brick Red at first till I saw it in person and it was too brown for me, I prefer bright reds so lemming killed.

Estee Lauder Red Velvet- I NEED this in my life, NEED. It's bright, matte, and the packaging is gorgeous!

Estee Lauder Shadows- I already have a few but I need more. If you've never felt up an Estee Lauder e/s before I highly suggest you do. The texture and pigmentation is absolutely divine. EL shadows are so underrated IMO. 

Tom Ford Scarlett Rouge- I need this luxe lipstick to carry around in the lipstick case I keep in my purse, plain and simple. I need it with me at all times in case I get the sudden urge to give it a hug.

And that's it! What items are on your Wishlist? Thanks for reading!

Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick- Parisian Red

Hi everyone! Parisian Red is a bright pinky red that only looks gorgeous on this lip but It's also very moisturizing and literally glides on like buttah.This has been my latest obsession, seriously. Where has it been all my life? Coverage is sheer-full; one swipe for sheer and a 2nd for full. Love.

Ingredients are:

BRIGHT flash.

No flash.
Look at all that moisture! I die! I know the Revlon Lip Butters are all the rave at the moment, but Clinique's butters are worth checking out as well. Thanks for reading!
