Judging by the sheer volume of purchases I have made in the last few weeks, they have been stressful ones. Strolling through the aisles of Sephora and beauty halls of department stores are the best therapy. Sometimes just looking around does the trick, but lately, I have had my eye on some new spring-fever inducing launches and here are the purchases to prove it. I hope I will also have some rave reviews for you after road-testing these purchases.

First off I had to try out the new Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation from Chanel. I refrained from buying this for a few weeks hoping that it would leave my thoughts, but it hasn't. I have seen instagram and blog posts galore raving and gushing about the finish of this foundation. My favorite foundation of all time is the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua so I thought this might be one for me as well - will report back on my findings.

Another item I had my eye on was the Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Powder, after seeing it on Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup where it looked too pretty to pass up. I am not much of a blush girl, as I have a hard time finding ones that don't end up looking like dirt smears by the end of the day. TMI, I know. This one seems to be up my street so far, no brown tones, just glow; but we shall see..

Some repurchases include the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light and Lightscapade. I have always used the Medium color in this product but have been finding it too dark as of late. It is my favorite powder as it does just what it 'ought to do. Adds some staying power to your foundation and some glow to that mug. Also note the refurbished packaging; I like, I like.

A few other bits include the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil to fill that scar in my left brow; a battlewound reminiscent of a fight I had with my brother back in the day. I also picked up the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color in Amethyst,  and the First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy in hopes of combating these tired ol' eyes.
